Freedom of Contract. (FROM THE MINER.) [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 25 April 1891

Freedom of Contract, (FROM THE MISTEB.) I A CONSIDERABLE amount of ignor ance appears to exist in reference to the rales relating to the employment of kanakas and Chinamen as shearers. It pays the professional agitator to proclaim loudly from the housetops that Chinese and kanakas are so em ployed, and that white shearers will HE compelled to consort with them. Many unthinking men believe those schemers, and once the conviction is forced home to them that such is the; case it requires a good deal of argu ment to prove to them that they are laboring under a wrong impression. It is a well known FACT to all who have taken the trouble to obtain the most reliable information on this and all other questions connected with the present dispute, that the pastoralists do not require the SERVICES of alien labor IN the wool-sheds in ANY capacity, and those WHO assert to THE contrary know perfectly well that they are not stating what is true. In A telegram published yesterday it willbe seen that...

North-westwards. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 25 April 1891

X ortliwestwards. (by BtTSHRA-NfrEH.) 8 TAUT rxo from Richmond across the Flinders, some 45 miles, over splendid rolling downs country, bel nging to Cambridge Downs Station, brings you to Burleigh Station.. On the road I met some nine or ten unionists leaving Cambridge for the camp at Hughen den. One of these, a whitewashed Irishman, wanted to know the latest news about the strike, and 1 told him that an attempt had been made to wreck a train with crowbars. A smile of contempt crossed his classic features as he remarked " They dont know much about dynamite up there. Why, I could wreck a train in broad daylight with a plug ot two of dynamite (sic) and you couldn'nt see it." " But," said I, " you might destroy innocent people along with the free laborers." " Serve 'em right for "travel ling in the same train with the b respouded he; " if they could only get a lot of the squatters in a bunch and blow them up it would be a good job, and bring about a revolution." If a few of this man's ...

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 25 April 1891

TO THE EDITOR. Sir,--WitJi the aid of your valuable as- j sistanc; I propose to end the strike in a few ( weeks. What does "freedom of contract" j mean ? The pastoralists assert that they have given" in to all the demands of the sheares save one, viz, the " employment of non-union labor." From what I read I ] gather that the shearers are satisfied with the pastoralists' agreement save the employ- ' ment of non-union labor. If this is >eo, why should we miners be asked to subscribe in order that the shearers, a better paid class, should possess a privilege that we do not demand. We' are daily working side by side with non-union men, and we do not call them scabs All that we demand is that they shall work fair and not in any way attempt to lower our position, or make us forfeit our rights. I consider, sir, that it is £he duty of the BEneis' Union to settle at once what the shearers want, and let us know what we are paying for. If the pastoralists demand more than this from the shea...

The Lost Leg. FROM THE GERMAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 25 April 1891

^^gg^ggi: CrEttMAJST. . In the autnmnof 17&2 the sturgeon, iiouis Thevenet, of Calais, received a note without signature requesting him to call on the following day at a re tired country house situated on the road leading towards Paris, and to bring with him what might be need ful to perform an amputation. Thevenet was at that time widely "known as the most skillful man. in Ms profession, and it was not an unusual occurrence for him to be summoned across the Channel to England for the exercise of his professional skill. He had served a long time in the army, was somewhat brusque in his manner, and yet one could help loving him for liis native kindness &f heart. Thevenet was somewhat surprised by the receipt of this anonymous note. The day, the hour, the place, were given with the greatest exact npss, but, as stated, the signature was wanting. Some buffoon probably thinks to make a fool of me, thought Ireland he did not go. Three days later he received a similar inVit...

Hiiglieucleii. WITH THE CHARTERS TOWSRS COMPANIES AT HUG-IJESDEK'. THE weather seems to be on the ere of a change, being- very warm and oppressive, with strong winds at night. Dnll is pro ceeding very actively, and. with far more variety than is practised at home, for in tance. fixing bayonet? - oa the march, and piling arms. A good neal of skirmishing drill, might be very useful, as it is in this sort of work that infantry prove most useful in action. < aptain Beattie has left for the Towers on business, and he is greatly missed, as he is a great favorite with the men of A Company, and scarcely less so with those of D Company, composed as it is largely of his own country men. The Hughenden Cricket Club having invited the Defence Force to play a match with them, the invitation was accepted, and a scratch team, captained by Sergeant-Major" Wort, played against 10 of the Hughenden men to-day.

The Unionist Rioters. PROCEEDINGS OF COURT. (BY ELECTRIC TELEGRAPH.)   (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) ROCKHAMPTON, April 22. In impanelling the jury the Crown challenged 67, and the defence 76. Whilst the names were being called Judge Harding made some strong remarks concern- ing the way in which the right to challenge was being exercised, to which Mr Power re- plied that he did not wish the trial to be   abortive. His Honor retorted, "It's only a bit of a tumult." After the jury had been sworn, Mr Power opened the case for the Crown in an address, lasting about 10 minutes. Im- mediately he concluded, Sub-Inspector Dillon was placed in the witness box. Very little progress had been made when the Court adjourned for lunch. The offences with which the defendants were charged being misdemeanours, the jury were allowed to go to their homes after being cautioned to hold converse with no one on the merits of the case. The court resumed at half-past two, and Sub-In...

Scientific Notes. ON SOME OF THE CHEMICAL PROPERTIES OF GOLD. IX [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 2 May 1891

[BY A. W. CLARKE, F.G-.S.] OIT SOME OF THE CHEMICAL PROPERTIES OF GOLD. IX THE object of these oofcps is to familiarize general readers with facts pertaining to tbe chemistry of gold, well enough known to those analysts and assayers who reading current scientific literature, are abreast of modern research, bat perhaps ignored by mill managers, amalgamators <&C.j There is nothing original in the subject matter, and all I can claim, is the endeavour to make it so plain that be who runs may read, there being no need "for arming the subject with the bristles of technicality. Professor Skey winds up a most interesting paper read before The Australian Association for the Ad vancement of Science in these words: ". . . . Gold, like tbe base metals, " is rapidly affected in a chemical way, " by certain of the constituents of air " in conjunction, with water, by which " it becomes minutely corroded, and " as minutely enfilmed; and I have " proved . . . . that the greater 4 ...
