THE RECENT TAILORESSES'
SYDNEY LABOUR COUNCIL DISCUSSION.
The recent tailoresses' strike was the subject of
considerable discussion at last night's meeting of the
Sydney Labour Council. A communication was re-
ceived from the Tailoresses' Union asking that a de-
putation, comprising the executive and the president
(Mr. H. E. Holland), should be received, with a
view to laying before the council statements in con-
nection with the conditions under which work has
been resumed at Messrs. Anthony Hordern and Sons'
since the cessation of the strike.
Mr. F. Brennan moved that the executive be re-
ceived, but that Mr. Holland be refused admission.
He said that recent public utterances of Mr. Holland
in reference to the strike were an insult to the council,
and it did not become the dignity of members to per-
mit him to enter the meeting. Mr. Holland, he said,
dissolution of the council, and had uttered equally
absurd statements.
Mr. Hoskins and others supported Mr. Brennan's
objection. It was resolved to admit the deputation,
Mr. Holland included.

A new device for lighting lamps in a big wind has
been brought out by an English firm. The apparatus
is something after the style of a pistol, and has to be
fixed to the side of the lamp with the barrel through
a hole which has to be made in the body of the lamp.
The end of the igniter is brought to the end of the
wick, and the action of a piston drives a match out
of a magazine, which during its passage becomes
ignited, and the flame coming in contact with the
wick lights the lamp. The magazine holds five
matches, which are specially made for the igniter.

Mr. A. Mahaffy, Deputy British Commissioner for
the Solomon Group, arrived in Sydney on Sunday by
the steamei Titus. In speaking yesterday with a
representative of the " Herald " Mr. Mahaffy re-
marked that matters in the group were very quiet
when he left. Head-hunting by the natives was, in
his opinion, a thing of the past so far as raids on an
extensive scale were concerned. He had assisted in
suppressing this nefarious practice on the part of
some of the tribes, and he thought that it had been
scotched, but its complete suppression was a matter
that would take a long time. There would certainly
be occasional small outbreaks of this savage crime.

A SERIOUS ACCIDENT.
A man named Charles Bade, 41 years of age, a turner by
occupation and a resident of Hamilton, met with a serious
accident this morning at the railway deviation works at
Morriset, where he was employed. It appears from the
meagre information available that the unfortunate man
caught his arm in the belting of some machinery in opera-
tion at the deviation works, and was swung round and
violently thrown to the ground. When picked up he
was in an unconscious condition, and no medical attend-
ance could be procured. He was conveyed by train to
Newcastle, and admitted at midday to the NewcastIe Hos-
pital. The medical examination disclosed the fact that he
had received a fracture of the base of the skull, a com-
pound comminuted fracture of the left arm, and a fracture
of the jaw. The patient was at a late hour to-night in a
critical condition, and but faint hopes for his recovery are
entertained.

STATEMENT BY MR. BARTON.
THE TERMS OF SETTLEMENT.
SUSPENSION OF PROSECUTIONS.
Mr. Barton received a telegram yesterday from Sir
George Turner explaining the terms of the arrange-
ment with the P. and O. and Orient Companies as to
payment of duties on ships' stores pending the de-
cision or lapse of the Privy Council case, Kingston
v. Gadd. The arrangement is described by the
Treasurer as follows :—" The arrangement with the
P. and O. and Orient Companies is that duty is not
enforced in each port while the ship is staying as it
wouId be difficult to take stock and ascertain the
amount. But as soon an possiblo the purser makes
out a correct statement of the stores comsumed in
each port, and while travelling from one to the other,
and the duty is at once paid. There is no con-
dition allowed. The payment must be absolute,
leaving the company to seek its legal remedy. Every
facility is given, but we do not in any way give up
any of our rights. If the company (meaning the
Norddeutscher Lloyd) will give a similar undertak-
ing it will be treated exactly the same as the others.
The company should undertake that the purser will
give us a proper account, and that the company will
pay duty on stores consumed in the different ports,
and while travelling between them. This may be
done on the arrival of the incoming vessel at Sydney.
To facilitate matters Dr. Wollaston has instructed
Fremantle not to interfere with the ship (the
Friedrich der Grosse, which was to arrive at that port
on Thursday, on the assumption that that undertak-
ing will be given. If the company does not do so
the ship will be dealt with at Adelaide in the usual
way."

burns on the arms. The mother is frantic from the
