The Meeting at Queenton. (FROM THE MINER) [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 18 April 1891

. Tiie nLeetiii^ at Queeutoii. * (FROM THE MINEB ) THE speeches that were delivered by the agitators who conducted the meeting held at Queentonon Sunday afternoon were, as usual, discursive, wide of the mark, apd in every way calculated to deceive the fifteen hun dred or so of people who de liberately laid themselves out to waste a beautiful Sunday afternoon by listening to them; and had the Father of Lies been hovering over that little heap of mnllock that served for a platform, he could not have failed to have been highly pleased at the progress made by his pupils, not only in the art of prevari cation, but in that of the straight-out pervertion of the truth, and the systematic avoidance of the subject which, the meeting was ostensibly called to discuss, in fact, had a stranger come along and listened to one of the disjointed addresses de livered by the speakers, he would have been at a loss to know what it was all about, and would never have dreamed that it had anything to do wit...

An Uncalled-for Interference. (FROM THE MINER.) [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 18 April 1891

An Uncalled-for Iiiterlfcreiice*. (FKOM THE MIXEE.) THE action of the Municipal Council, at their meetrng on Wednesday last, in passing a motion that the Mayor, who is at present in Brisbane, should be requested by wire urge the Government to endeavor to bring about a Conference between the con tending parties in the present shearers* strike, has been the cause of considerable comment and some astonishment amongst a large num ber of ratepayers. It is perfectly true that every one, individual alder men included, is desirous of seeing the present struggle between the shearers and the pastoralists, brought to a satisfactory conclusion, but what the Municipal Council of Charters Towers, in their capacity as a local governing body, whose duties are clearly defined by the statute under which they exist, have to do with the question no one can see. They might just as well attempt to assume the direction of the Charters Towers Hospital, or have the as surance to advise Mr. PRITCHAED how he ...

In the course of lus evi dence, Sir SAMUEL said he intended to introduce into the Queensland Legislature a Sill to deal with the subject of the remuneration of laborers. The details of the pro posed Bill were apparently not mentioned, but the evidence of Sir SAMUEL was such as to lead p to expect something startling, in the i^ay of profit sharing. Sir SAMUEL says the " present system" of pay ment of wages is " both unjust and dangerous," and apparently he pro poses to do away with wages altogether, and by a stroke of the ! pen to make all employees co-partners | with their e...

There were about 800 men present. Mr J. A. Campbell, chairman of the Strike Committee, presided. He said that the meeting was called to enable the Strike Com mittee to make certain announcements to the men. It was the Strike Committee's policy to fight the ba' tie constitutionally and peace fully to the bitter end, and they . believed they would have had the unanimous sup port of the unions, but in that opinion they had been mistaken.. In the first instance the men had not supgtorted them at Black all. They had all seen the wire that the Blackall men had resolved to yield freedom of contract to the squatters. The Strike Couimitfce did not believe it at first. They knew some time ago that there was some underhand work going on there against them, and they had taken steps to block it, but in that ...

Local and General. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 18 April 1891

Local and General. A TELEGRAM was received by Captain Jarvis on Monday from the Brigade Major, instructing Lieutenant Gordon to proceed at once to Hughenden to relieve Captain Mowbray permanently. Lieutenant Gordon left by train on Tuesday morning. The numerous friends of E. J. Coane will be glad to learn that he has entirely recovered from the serious illness which compelled him to go south several months ago. He was to leave Sydney yester- day for Townsville, and will probably arrive in Charters lowers early next week. DR. FORBES informs us that Alexander Laird, who was hurt through some stone falling on him at the Brilliant and Worces- ter and Victory claim on Tuesday, is pro-   gressing favorably, although he cannot be said to be yet out of danger. It is likely that he will have to remain in the hospital for several days. Two members of the Towers Mounted Infantry, Messrs. Meikle and Jenkins, leave for Winton via Hugkenden by train on Wed- nesday to join their compa...

The Labor Dispute.         CLERMONT, April 16. Corporal Bourke, of the Mount Morgan Mounted Infantry, was charged at the Police Court with assault. The evidence showed that a young man named Kettle and two others were driving to Springsure when they met defendant, who was under the influence of drink.

Bourke was fined £2, or one month in gaol.   The special train with the Pastoralists' Executive arrived here last night.
