Cost of the Coal Strike in England. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 17 February 1894

Cost of the Coal Strike in England. An attempt has been made by Mr. John Scott, a statistician who writes in the Glasgow Herald, to estimate tbe cost of the lecent coal strike in the Midlands of England. He shows that whereas the normal output of tbo 16 weeks duriug which from first to last tbe dispute endured is 63,000,000 tons, it fell actually to 39,000,000. Ordinarily there woald have been exported 11,000,000 tons, used by steamers at sea 2,900,000 tons, and consumed in this country 49,100,000 tona. Ab it was, we exported 8,750,000 tons, used in steamers 2,750,000 tons, and burnt in this country only 27,500,000 tons. Analysing the home consumption, which as it thus appears was chiefly affected, Mr. Scott findB that the quantity . of coal normally used in collieries and mines, 1,964,000 tons, fell to 3,217,680; in ironworks and in smelt ing, 10,203,000 tonp, to 3,554,4S0 ; in pot teries and glassworks, 1,473,000 to 353,500 ; in factories and workshops, 12,275,000 to 6,874,000 ; o...

The Secretary of the Young 'Victorian Patriotic League (Mr. Walter Church) was present by invitation and delivered an address showing the work done by that body and its method of organisa tion. The effect of the formation of the League had, ho considered, been a valuable one on the political life of the southern colony, as it -had aroused a large amount of enthusiasm amongst the younger men of the community, and ...
