AGAINST THE LASCAR. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 17 February 1895
AGAINST THE LASCAR. Being desirous of hearing the other side of the question, I subsequently oalled upon Mr. Sam Smith, seoretary of tho Federated Seamen's Union, iu order to ascertain his view of the matter. In roply to my enquiry Mr. Smith said : — ' The Seamen's Union have been agitating for the removal of colored labor from the mail Btoamers for the past ten years. We think that as ao much money is paid by the Austra lian colonies towards subsidising the mail Bervioe that WHITE LABOR SHOULD HAVE THE PREFERENCE. 'We strongly objeot to Australians being taxed for supporting these men. The P. and O. Company's statement that lascars are more reliable than white soainon has been disposed of on many occasions. Contrast the P. and O. crews witu those of the Orient line, whioh only employs European sailors and make no complaints of their efficiency. ' We have no objection to natives being employed for the purely Indian traffic, but wo don't think they should go away from India. ?Then th...

THE SYRIAN QUESTION. (TO THE EDITOR OF THE " SUNDAY TIMES.") [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 17 February 1895
THE SYRIAN aUESTION. (TO THE EDITOR OF THE ' SUNDAY TIMES.') Sir, — Tour correspondents of the 10th inst., 'A Syrian Morohant,' 'Eev. Sylvanus Mansour,' ' B. Ozzi,' ' J. T. Malouf, ' Jacob filoses,' &c, &c, have, by thdir' Jotters, put aside juatioe and fairness, aud attempted* to decline to recognise me as a consular agent. Whether they rocogniso it or not, my appoint ment is gonuino, and the official document could be aoen by anyone anxious to look at it. I will treat their personal attacks with a contemptuous silenco, aud leave to the publio to judge their unmauly action. I don't think it was necessary for me to request them to approve of my appointment ; nor do I think the Turkish Government would ask their per mission previous to any appointment. With your permission, I would like to remind them that youth is not an obstacle to a man's advancement, and to pive them tho samo answer as the young constable of Castilo to .Popo Sixtus.

AMONG THE LASCARS HOW THEY LIVE, DRESS, AND WORK. Ashore and Afloat. A P. AND O. SKIPPER'S OPINION. The Seamen's Union Views. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 17 February 1895
AMONG THE LASCATtS ? * ? HOW THEY LIVE, DRESS, AND WORK. Ashore and Afloat. A P. AND 0. SKIPPER'S OPINION. The Seamen's Union Yiews. | ? -ft A gbeat deal has been heard lately about the employment of lascars on board the mail steamers, and latterly it has become a political question in connection with the subsidies contributed by , the colonies to the contracting companies. Of the two lines carrvins the mails via the Suez Canal. the Orient Company employs only white labor, but the Peninsular and Oriental Company, of which the Australian service forms only one of its off-shoots, goes in for colored crews, the whole of the deck hands and firemen being recruited from this source. Apart altogether from the controversial aspect of the matter, tho presence of the lascar on. the P. and O. boats lends a decidedly picturesque aspect to the appearance of these vossels, and imparts color and oharaotor to the scene. There is something very suggestiyej too, in the employment of these men, aliens...
FOR THE LASCAR. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 17 February 1895
FOR THE LASCAR. In the course of conversation with Captain Atkinson, that gentleman said 1 — 'I have had thirty-one years experience with lasoar seamen in all parts of the world and in all climates, and I have NEVEK KNOWN AN ACCIDENT to a ship which oould be attributed to the shortcomings of a lascar crew. Of course thay ar^i sober, because their religion forbids them to tako strong drink, and I have never seen a caso of drunkennenH in a Mahommedan sailor. The Maldive Is land men, from which many of our crews are recruited, are brought up to the soa from infanoy, and have been for genera tions before them. Many of them have served in the native junkR carrying cocoa-nuts and other produce to India.' 'Then do you think the lascars are equal in oapaoity to European sailors?' ' Physioallv thoy are not equal man for man, but three lanoars will get through the work of two Europeans, and we got more time ont of them. They do not work watch and watch like white sailors, but are usually all ...

MORE ABOUT IRRIGATION And Water Conservation. LACK OF LEGISLATION BARS THE WAY. Water Rights Must be Determined. What Has Been Done Elsewhere— The Mistakes of America and the Suc cesses of India— A Chat With Mr. M'Kinney. Following up an interview last issue with, the Hon. Sidney Smith, Minister for Mines and Agriculture, upon the subject of artesian bores and irrigation, a Sunday Times reporter had a chat during the week with. Mr. G. H. M'Kinney, M.E., chief engineer for water conservation. Ever since he came from India, where he had practical i experience of the wonderful results that ' can be achieved by irrigation, Mr. \ M'Einney has Io3t no opportunity of bringing the subject prominently before , the country. In 1887 he read a paper before 1 the Eoyal* Society on ' the experiences of other countries in the administration of ; their water supply,' and since then has : been actively engaged in reporting upon : and otherwise promoting the work, both : privately and officially.

ISMCOLONIAL CRICKET, VICTORIA v. SOUTH AUSTRALIA. South Australia Batting on a Bad Wicket. They Follow on, and Lyons Scores a Century. (BY WIEE— FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Melbourne, Saturday Night. The Intercolonial match between South Australia and Victoria was resumed on the Melbourne Cricket Ground to-day in the presenoe of a good attendance. Trumblo and E. M'Leod, the last men on the Victorian aide, did not last long, the innings concluding for 348, M'Leod's wioket boincrirotby the express bowler, Jones. It was expected, as the wicket was in splendid condition, that the visitors would make a good stand, but their display was very disappointing. The bowling of the two Trotts was, as a matter of fact, too good for them, and wiakat after wicket went down without many runs being addod. Lyons was not at all at homo to Harry Trott, whose third ball he slipped clean into Trumble'e bauds. Reedman had hard lnok in playing C. M'Leod on to Iub wioket.
