The Newcastle Strike. NEWCASTLE, FRIDAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Dispatch and Mining Journal — 29 August 1888

The Newcastle Strike , Newcastle, Friday. Although the matter of the strike was virtually decided on Wednesday, when the miners' delegates met the members of the Conciliation Committee, still a great many people hoped against hope, and clung tenaciously to the smallest remaining thread that might possibly avert the disaster, and prevent what must prove in many instances almost abso lute ruin. The fact that Canon Selwyn had to meet the miners' delegates this morning gave rise to a very strong feeling that the strike would not be brought about, and curiously enough there were linn believers that no strike would happen at alL Everyone -had . some reason to advonce for arid against it. An impression gained currency that neither side wanted a strike, cud that the presumably firm and obstinate positions maintained were nothing more than a menace to the other- party. Ono side would ?have to give in when tlie shoe began to pinch — and which party would it bo? Certainly, it looked as tf the ...

GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Dispatch and Mining Journal — 29 August 1888

GENERAL NEWS. , ? « ? . — , Work at all the collieries in the Newcastle dis-j trict ceased on Friday afternoon at 4 o'clock. The Ineu took away their implements, and the pits wore soon deserted. A good deal of excitement prevailed at the time they crmio out but beyond this there was no disorder. The opinion in Sydney in connection; with the strike is (gays the Hhkai.d) that the men) have forced it upon themselves, and upon all sides; they are condemned. Mr. J. Fletcher, M.L.A.,' says that he believes the strike will be a long one— in all probability extending over three, four, or live months. In South Australia the railway authorities have secured several thousand tons of coal, and bojie to tide over the difficulty. It is believed that one re sult of the strike will be to open up fresh sources of supply, greatly to the detriment of Newcastle. It is stated that coal in New Zealand is likely to be advanced 2a per ton. The drought in. the West appears to be playing great havoc with the...

Trusting for your insertion of this, I am, Sir, yours faithfully, J. R FILEWOOD, Manager Mount Limestone Silver Mine. Krawarrec, August 27.

Captain's Flat. During a visit 1 made to Uaptain s Flat in com pany with others last week from Braidwood it struck me that it would be ' interesting to give an account of the progress I noticed since I was there before about three montliB ago, prior to the commencement of operations by the new com panies who are now developing their several pro perties. We started from Braidwood at 10 a.m. on Thursday and after a pleasant drive along a very good road, we camped at the rarkcr's Gap Saw Mill, 21 miles on our journey, and partook of luncheon, after which, with our horses refreshed, as well as ourselves, we proceeded on,- with another four miles of very good travelling while on the road to Oooma, where we turned off through Mr. J.
