Francis Henry Lambton, manager of the Burwood
Colliery, deposed that he was not at the pit at the
time of the accident, but arrived on the scene
within an hour. He knew that the men
engaged in the pit were capable of looking
after matters. Witness produced three reports
concerning the discovery of gas in the mine. The
first was dated December 29 last, and stated that a
little gas had been found and cleared out. The other
reports were dated March 6 and 8 last. The report
stated that the men were not allowed to go in until
the gas had been cleared out. Witness did not
think that there was sufficient gas to be a menace to
the men, and he did not consider it necessary to use
safety lamps. Gas was more likely to be met
with in new ground. Selby, the fireman
deputy, had said in February or March
last that the district was getting too large for him,
and witness sanctioned an alteration, with which
Selby was satisfied. Witness placed great depen-
dence on Brock, the underground manager. What
the examiners meant when they reported " a little
gas " was that it was only a sufficient quantity to
cause a little flicker on the lamps.
By Chief Inspector Atkinson : Witness had had
18 years' experience in coal-mining, and held a
colonial manager's certificate which he gained by
service. He had been 10 years a manager, and three
years an assistant manager. During the past five
years he had been principally in charge of the Bur-
wood colliery. The depth of Burwood mine was 600ft.
and was one of the deepest mines in the Newcastle
district. He thought that there was only one deeper
mine, and that was Dudley Colliery. The method
adopted for working Burwood was the pillar and
stall system. The pit was thoroughly ventilated, about
140,000ft. air per minute circulating in the mine. The
ventilating fan was 20ft. in diameter and 7ft. wide.

conditions of work considerably improved ; but that
if they attempted to enforce the condition that all
factories were to employ only unionists their unions
would be immediately annihilated. The Labour
Council had sent its recommendations to them in all
them. They all were of the working class, and the
members of the Labour Council had all gone through
serious industrial crises, and they considered that
the recommendations were in the best interests of the
Tailoresses' Union and of labour generally. Messrs.
Tochnel, F. Brennan, D. Quinn, and T. J. Hoskins,
of the Labour Council, all strongly supported the
Mr. Thrower. Ultimately the report was received, and
Miss Wilson moved its adoption, Mrs. Leigh
seconding the proposition. Miss Rose Scott coun-
selled the union to carry the motion. After further
hands, only three being raised against it.
" A. Apsly " writes :—" There is one phase of
this question which very few of the opponents of
this strike have considered—the future of their own
descendants, especially on the female side. Wealth
now very easily slips from one's grasp. A man is rich
to-day and poor to-morrow, and his daughters fall
with him. Another is poor to-day and rich to-
day and his daughters rise with him. History proves
that thousands of the descendants of the nobility
have been reduced to circumstances compelling them
to seek their living by labour, while it also proves
that many of the descendants of the ancient serf
are now enormously rich. The descendants of serfs
are now the masters of descendants of princes and
barons. Does anyone believe that history will not
again repeat itself ? Who has not in his own little
day seen the daughters and granddaughters, let
alone the great-granddaughters, of a man of afflu-
ence reduced to the direst poverty, begging of some
other person for leave to work ? It behoves us—
every man, every woman—who have sons and
daughters (no matter how wealthy we may now be)
to help these tailoresses, for by doing so we will be
indirectly helping to alleviate the distress that,
according to past experience, must inevitably over-
take some of our own descendants."

J. Michael, the Welsh midget, who a few years
back was the fastest pace-follower in the world, is
again in form, and is proving what a wonderful rider
he is behind pace. After carrying all before him in
America, he proceeded to France to ride against the
crack pace-follower of Europe. The latest English
exchanges to hand being particulars of a further fine
ride by Michael. In an hour's match against the
French crack, Bouhours, the Welshman jumped to
the front from the start, breaking world's records in
the first mile. Ten miles were covered in 14 minutes
13 1-5 seconds, by which time the Frenchman was a
lap to the bad. Twenty miles were clocked in 29
minutes 7 4-5 seconds, despite several mishaps to the
pacing motor tandems. At 30 miles, covered in 44
minutes 43 seconds, Bouhours was hopelessly beaten,
Michael eventually winning easily by seven laps,
covering 39⅔ miles in an hour. Michael's next match
is with the world's hour record-holder, Robl. This
match, barring pacing troubles, should prove the event
of the season.

EVIDENCE.

During the hearing of the Equity suit Wilkinson v.
Wilkinson, which was concluded on Wednesday, a
very important point as to the production of income
tax returns as evidence in court was decided by his
Honor Mr. Justice Walker. One of the parties to
the suit served a subpœna on the First Commissioner
of Taxation (Mr. L. S. Spiller) to produce the income
returns furnished on behalf of the partnership busi-
ness, as well as each partner's individual returns.
The Commissioners of Taxation decided to oppose
the production of the returns on the grounds that to
do so would be prejudicial and injurious to the ser-
vice of his Majesty the King. Mr. H. P. Owen, in-
structed by the Crown Solicitor, appeared for the
Commissioners in support of the objection. Dr.
Cullen, who appeared for one of the parties, objected
to the Commissioners being represented by counsel
in a case to which they were not parties, but his
Honor overruled the objection, holding that there
was no difficulty about council appearing for the
Commissioners of Taxation if they had a good legal
objection. The First Commissioner (Mr. Spiller)
was sworn, and stated that the Commissioners had
held a meeting and decided to oppose the production
of the returns on the grounds already stated. After
argument, in which several decisions in the English
Law Courts were quoted, his Honor held that in
view of the fact that the First Commissioner of
Taxation had stated on oath that in his opinion the
production of income tax returns would be preju-
dicial to the Public Service, and on the authority of
the case of Joseph Hargreaves, Limited, (1900), I. ch.
347, he ought not to order the production of these
documents.

WOMANHOOD SUFFRAGE
An exposition of the single tax principle was given
at the School of Arts on Wednesday evening, under
the auspices of the above, by Messrs. Lonsdale,
M.L.A., and P. McNaught, president of the Sydney
Single Tax League. Both gentlemen dealt with the
question of land value taxation as affecting the laws
of production and distribution, and urged that the
only equitable way of settling the great social prob-
lems was the imposition of a tax which would force
unoccupied land into use. At the close of the lecture
a number of questions were asked and answered.
During the evening a message was read from the
Premier stating that the Womanhood Suffrage Bill
would be among the first measures introduced next
session. The secretary of the league was instructed
to communicate with the Public Service Board re-
questing the board to receive a deputation urging that
public service with men.
