Correspondence. [TO THE EDITOR.] [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 4 April 1891

Correspondence. fTO THE EDITOR. 1 SIR,-As my name appears in a letter | signed " True Unionist," which appeared in j Tuesday's issue of your paper, I wish, with j jour permission to publish, a few remarks in . reference to the same. In the first place I beg to decline entering into a controversey with any person who is not game enough to sign their name to their letters. And in the second place I am inclined to think " True Unionist" is a deliberate liar, as there are no men employed in the Rainbow Mine to my knowledge at less than three pounds per week. There is a boy working there picking the mullock from the quartz at SSL per week, and the union men in the mine l|pk he is well paid. By inserting the ahore you will oblige, yours etc., J. JOHNSTON. The above is the correct version of the case. SAM. LOVE, member of Miners' Union Committee, S. T. WILLIAMS manager Bainbow Mine (to THE EDITOR.) Sib-I wish to have a little to say through your valuable paper with reference to the running...

The Shearers' Strike. (From the MINER.) [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 4 April 1891

'rite Shearers' Strike. : + ? (From the MINER.) IiATE news from Clermont and tike j Western country generally informs us | that the recent action of the Govern- ; .ment in causing the arrest of the Strike and Camp Committeemen and other ringleaders of the shearers -strike movement on charges of con spiracy and rioting, has already had a most salutary effect, and although it cannot yet be said that the conflict. between the shearers and their em ployers is anything like over, still . there are signs that the former are beginning to feel they have had enough of what the most sensible of -them now see must be a hopeless struggle. At Clermont especially h as this change from the defiant tone at first adopted been most noticeable, the moral effect of the arrests having been . such that manv of the unionists have -seceded from the camps and, like sen sible men, or we should say, men who have been temporarily bereft of their wits and r gained them, gone off to seek employment of a more pro...

The Lighting of the Municipality. (FROM THE MINER.) [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 4 April 1891

Tlie Lightiiip of the Munici pality. (FROM THE Moras.) THE Municipal Council, at their next meeting, which, will take place on Tuesday, will be called upon to deal with a matter of no small local [ importance, and one that should have j been dealt with years ago. We refer to the lighting of the streets of the town either by means of gas or by electricity. At present we believe that Charters Towers can claim the unenviable distinction of i being the worst lighted town of its size in the Australian colonies, and considering that a gas works has been established in our midst for the last (two years, it is simply disgraceful i that the principal thoroughfares, as ! well as all dangerous places in the j less-frequented streets, have not been lighted long since, and we, therefore hope, that when the Council meets, decisive measures will be taken. When the matter was last brought I forward it was on the recommenda tion of the Improvement Committee, who inserted the following clause in thei...

The Miners' Union. (FROM THE MINES) [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 4 April 1891

The Miiiers9 Union. (FROM THE MINES ) IN a late issue of the MINER we com mented upon the financial position of the Miners' Union. Our criticisms i were based upon the fig-ares submit ted to the preceding fortnightly meet ing of the committee, from which it appeared that the Union accounts stood thus: A credit at the bank of £8 17s Hd, which, after payment of the accounts passed at the meeting, would be turned into a debit or ovei draft of £15 18s 7d; a debt owing to the A.L.F. of £107 odd, and other liabilities. In our remarks we dealt only with the Union, and did not take into consideration the Accident Fund, which has a considerable credit. We pointed out plain facts, and placed the true position of the Union before the public, quoting certain remarks made by the members of the commit tee to emphasise our article. We drew the only deduction pos sible, that the Union is not so strong numerically and financially as | it was a few years ago. These state | ments of facte and criticis...

! Arrival of Towers Monnfed i Iutautr.y at Wintou. AST UNPLEASANT JOURNEY. (Br ELECTRIC TELEGRAPHS (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) WIIS'TON, Marcli 31. The Charters Towers Mounted Infantry arrived here at 3 o'clock this afternoon after doing the journey from Hughenden in a few hours over five days. The distance travelled is 160 miles, and they averaged 32 miles a day. On arrival they were cheered by the union ists. Heavy rains fell, and the country in places was very difficult to travel the black soil sticking in great lumps to the horses' feet. Notwitihstemding the hardships they un- . derwent, both horses and men are in good j health, though a few of the latter are suffer- j ing from slight colds, hut nothing to speak j of. 1 The station owners on the road were most i hospitable and proffers of assistance in the shape of horse flesh. A few re-mounts were accepted, as it was feared a few of the horses would not be equal to the journey. j The men are in excellent spirits, and are unde...

Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 4 April 1891

I Correspondence. ! TO THE EDITOR. i Sir,-Having been a member of the ' Miners' Union since it® formation here, and consequently feeling a great amount of interest in its proceedings, I should be glad to hear from the secretary the meaning of the motion tabled by Mr. Hill, " That this branch secede from the Amalgamated Miners* Association." I look upon such motion as being aimed at the destruction of this branch, and no polished talk from the new introduction to the Miners" Union Com mittee will convince my mates and myself of this. Is it not the intention of the Republi can Committee-for that's what it is, plain and simple-to leave the A.M.A. for the purpose of benefiting the Australian Labor Federation. What benefit have we derived from the latter P Nothing; nor shall we ever benefit by our connection. It appears to me that some of those on the committee hare been purchased by the capitalists to smash up our union. They are succeeding splendidly I must admit. It would be much bett...

Local and General. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 4 April 1891

Local and General. MR. THOMAS MILLS, with Mrs. Mills and family, arrived at Charters Towers on Tues- day after a trip to England. During their their stay here they will occupy their own house, opposite the Anglican Church.   IT has been rumored that many members of the infantry corps here would refuse to obey orders if called out for active service in connection with the shearers dispute. In the first place the rumor is not true and secondly it is a libel on the men; as, from what we can learn, they are all prepared to obey orders if called upon. They are fully aware of the terms of their agreement with the Government under the Defence Act, and they are not likely to shirk what is a plain duty. THE management of the branch, of the firm of Byrne Bros., in Townsville, has been entrusted to Mr. J. Anderson, so well known in the south as a footballer. The local footballers will have to reckon Mr. Anderson as an opponent during the coming season, and as his prowess in the ga...

QUEENSLAND. [BY ELECTRIC TELEGRAPH.] [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENTS.] TOWNSVILLE, March 29. The Custom's House was entered by   burglars on Saturday night. The lock of the   safe was picked and £80 in chcques and £40 in notes and gold were stolen. There is no clue. A man named Wadd, employed by a selec- tor, was drowned whilst crossing Five Head Creek. TOWNSVILLE, March 30. The marine excursion round Magnetic Island and to the Quarantine station was successful.   TOWNSVILLE, March 31. Mr. W. V. Brown is being strongly urged to contest the vacant seat. It is very likely if he consents his return is absolutely certain. The only question is of how large the majority will be. He is a large employer of labor, and is universally re- spected by working men. The District Council of the Australian Labor Federation meet to-morrow night to select a candidate, who will probably be chosen from Messrs. Ogden (president), Kingsberry (secretary), and Tooley or T...

A Disappointment for Everyone, [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 11 April 1891

A Di§appoihtmeut for Everyone, IT was terribly windy one day las week. The wind seemed to blow in from Mount Hope Bay around the corner of the Bristol ferry depot at the rate of about 300 miles an hour, or less, and there was a suction there that knocked spots oat of the month of the Narragansett Electric Light Company's big chimney. The train for Boston had just drawn up at the station. It hadn't a minute to wait, | and a good-looking yonng fellow, who I was struggling to get a bundle ont of a farm waggon, in which he had evi dently come from the interior, ap parently knew it. There was a girl waiting on the platform to bid him good-bye. She was an awfally pretty | girl, with cheeks the color of the red | onions they grow across the bay. She was as nervous as the yonng man. and. they W^raliofrh afraid he would miss* the train. He got his bundle out at last, rnshed to the platform, and grasped the pretty girls hand. Me bent his head, she raised her ruby red lips, the passengers who ...
