STEAM TRAM FATALITY.
MAN KILLED IN GEORGE-STREET WEST.
At about 1 o'clock last night a married man named
James Quinn, aged 64, living in Cleveland-street,
Darlington, was knocked down and killed by a steam
tram in George-street West. The scene of the
woman named Mary Brunell was killed on Thursday
last.
Quinn appears to have stepped on to the thorough-
fare close to the Buckland-street intersection as a
steam tram proceeding from Balmain to the city was
approaching. It is thought that he either did not
observe the motor, or that he misjudged the distances.
Before he could clear the line he was struck with
great force and hurled to the roadway. When
assistance reached him it was seen that he had received
terrible injuries. His skull was fractured and laid
open ; but although those who went to his aid felt
confident that death had been instantaneous, the Civil
Ambulance Brigade was summoned. Quinn was
then removed with all haste to Sydney Hospital,
where Dr. Hart at once pronounced life to be extinct.
Subsequently the body was removed to the
morgue, where an inquest will be held to-day.

FAMINE IN SHENSI.
APPALLING NUMBER OF DEATHS.

lation of Shensi has died of famine.
[The population of Shensi was, roughly speaking,
8,300,000, so that 2,075,000 have died as the result
of the famine, which has now prevailed since August.
Relief funds were started at Shanghai, and in addi-
tion official relief has been given, but no amount of
relief could avail against such appalling destitution as
inquiries have revealed. Writing to the " North
China Herald " at the end of October one distributer
of the Shanghai relief fund stated :—" The outlook
for the winter is by no means bright. The crops on
the north side of the Yangtsze-Kiang are very poor,
and in many places either from the untimeliness of
the rainfall or the pestilence of locusts the autumn
harvest will not be reaped. What the poorer classes
will do in the winter is a problem no one can answer.
The official relief that was to be fully stopped in the
sixth moon is still being continued in the more needy
districts, and the Empress has left another 100,000
taeIs for immediate distribution. Seed is also being
given that the wheat may be sown and the spring
crops assured, but after all these measures have been
taken there remain an enormous number of the popu-
lation in destitution and face to face with the com-
ing winter. Relief can only temporarily help, it
cannot effectually ward off starvation. The chronic
poverty and ever-recurring calamities that deplete
the population and upset the stability of the govern-
ment must be faced in the solution of the problems of
a thorough reform."]

the cost of production in England, and thus
prejudicing her manufacturers in foreign
fields, does the " Times " seem to waver in
its support of this policy. It is precisely
here that stanch freetraders will join issue
with Sir Bernhard Samuelson. No doubt it
is extremely vexing to see the ill effects of an
irregular trade on the particular industries
prejudiced by the flooding of goods imported
under cost. But as we have seen in the case of
the continental beet sugar industry, the flood-
ing of the British market has, on the whole,
been more beneficial than otherwise to the
people of the mother country. Its effect has
been to stimulate industry in other directions,
while giving the consumers themselves sugar
for use at a price but little more than one-
half that which has to be paid in France or
Germany. Certainly the statement of the
which the people buy their provisions, do sug-
gest the favourable position the Government
occupies for imposing duties that will not in a
comparative way cause serious trouble to the
taxpayer. The indirect taxation of the mother
country might be considerably broadened,
and still leave food and most other products
cheaper than they are elsewhere. Still, we
have to come back to the saving clause of the
" Times "—what will be the effect on the in-
dustry of the country—not merely on its home
market, but on that in foreign fields.
Too much concern need not be felt at the
comparatively large increase in the foreign
commerce of the United States and Germany.
The measure of the growth of the export trade
attended with other than the most satisfactory
results ; and influential statesmen have been
only others—the partisans of freetrade, for
instance—who recognise the ill-effects of the
protective system. In his last public utter-
ance President McKinley acknowledged that
he thought the time had come when the pro-
tective duties of the United States should be
trade of the countiy should be increased at
two or three years the import trade would
have to develop in some corresponding mea-
sure. This is required not merely in the in-
of her own people. If the agriculturists
to buy in those markets. They cannot with
advantage continue to sell produce to the
value of £290,000,000 in foreign fields, and
take merchandise in return to the value of
only £165,000,000, partly balancing their
trade with excessive imports of gold. The
Hindoo may be content to take annually
£6,000,000 or £8,000,000 in silver and gold
as part payment for the rice, tea, and
other produce he sells abroad ; but mere
gold and silver to the American does not
count as a possession of value to be compared
with what it represents in the product of
every description which adds to the comfort
and conveniences of life. During the past
year or two an enormous addition has been
made to the money of the United States, in
consequence of the large balance of exports
being paid for in gold. As a matter of fact,
that was really needed to put the country's
cause the trouble from which it suffered in
the Presidential election a few years back. But
now that its cunency has been well gilded, and
that gold forms so large a part of it, there is
no reason why the United States should take
so much gold in exchange for its manufac-
tures. Other things will be needed. They
would be taken under ordinary conditions,
the imposts that exclude them. When that

terday at Fern Bay, combined with a harbour picnic.
The steamer Kangaroo was chartered for the occa-
sion, and left the Floating Jetty at Circular Quay
shortly after 2 o'clock, in the afternoon with a very
large company, estimated at about 300 people, on
board. The band of the lrish Rifles Regiment was
in attendance, and as Mr. and Mrs. O'Brien, ac-
companied by Dr. C. W. MacCarthy and Mr. D.
O'Connor, M.L.A., stepped on the wharf, Mr. O'Brien
was received with a salute of three cheers and the
playing of national airs. The cheers were renewed as
Mr. O'Brien stepped on board. At once the boat was
got under way for Fern Bay, which was reached
after a pleasant trip. Arrived there, the party landed
and sat down to the banquet, which was served in the
pavilion. Dr. MacCarthy occupied the chair, and
among those present were Messrs. J. G. Carroll,

DEPUTATION TO MR. O'SULLIVAN.
in the North Sydney high-lying districts visited the
Government offices on Saturday to interview the
Premier. Mr. See, however, considered that as the
Water and Sewerage Board was under the juris-
diction of the Minister for Works it would be more
immediately advantageous to the deputation if it was
received by his colleague. Consequently Mr.
O'Sullivan received it. Mr. Howarth, M.L.A., in
introducing it, dwelt on the urgency of the occasion
and the extraordinary position of affairs. Many
people had been without water for days—some for a
week—and immediate arrangements should be made
to meet the difficulty and to assure that there should
never be a recurrence of it. He thought the head
waters of the Lane Cove River might be dammed.
Mr. R. J. Black, M.L.C., said that the dearth of
water not only involved obvious domestic inconveni-
ences but was a menace to the general health of the
localities affected, because the sanitary condition
depended on a sufficient flow of water being available
to carry the sewage away. The whole place was,
in the absence of that supply, threatened with an
outbreak of typhoid.

the remainder should bo reinstated as soo« as ma-
chinists could be secured, no matter whether em

On the suggestion of Mi Thrower it wus arranged

should be'allowed to rest until about a week after the
now year, when the delegates should approach Mr
Hordern ngntii on tho matter , meanwhile, if pos-
sible, the girls to bo taken on.
The conlcicnao closed with mutual congifttulations
at tho satisfactory termination ot the negotiations.
Mr. Segal said if they would give him all the
hands back that had gone out on strike, including
the machinists, he would put all the girls on ; but if
they took away one branch of the establishment the
factory could not find work for all the rest.
Mr. Thrower asked if a number of the girls in the
factory could not be given a holiday, as had been the
case of the furniture factory at Redfern ?
Mr. Segal said that if he could get machinists
after Christmas he would be able to put the girls on.
Mr. Thrower : How many machinists do you want
back ?
Mr. Segal : I want my old hands back.
Mr. Thrower : But you will not make that a con-
dition of putting on more machinists ?
Mr. Segal : No ; if you give me an equivalent. I
could do with six machinists.
Mr. Brennan said what the deputation wanted
was that the arrangement should be carried out.
A long discussion took place regarding the alleged
penalising of members of the union who had taken
an active part in the strike, but Mr. Segal absolutely
denied that he had acted in that way towards any of
the girls. The position of several who had been
taken on to work at the factory during the strike was
also discussed, but Mr. Segal stated that he would
not dispense with the services of any of these.
Mr. Brennan stated that it seemed to him that the
only fair way out of the difficulty was for the women
to go back in turns.
Mr. Thrower contended that his suggestion to the
same effect should be acted on.
Mr. Segal promised to do all he could to get ma-
chinists, and it was urged that the tailoresses them-
selves should make it as widely known as possible
that machinists were required by the firm.
It was then arranged that three of the tailoresses
present should resume work on Monday, and that
the remainder should be reinstated as soon as ma-
chinists could be secured, no matter whether em-
ployed at the time elsewhere or not.
On the suggestion of Mr. Thrower it was arranged
that, as Mr. Segal anticipated being able to get ma-
chinists after the Christmas holidays, the matter
should be allowed to rest until about a week after the
new year, when the delegates should approach Mr.
Hordern again on the matter ; meanwhile, if pos-
sible, the girls to be taken on.
The conference closed with mutual congratulations
at the satisfactory termination of the negotiations.
