The min owners manifesto published this morning has been carefully read by the men on strike but it failed to cause the excitement which might have been expected from me ions 01 me statement. One rare evidences that the men had Folly made up their minds a to the contents of the document Long before it reached Here and that it would have taken s Good Deal to cause them any Surprise. The labor defence committee met Early and it is understood that As soon a bume Lees important matters have been dealt with the manifesto will be Folly considered. Or. Sleath was very Busy at the meeting but Cine out and made the following Short statement to the newspaper representatives the manifesto is full of Gross inaccuracies and we shall have to make a fell reply acting the Day. It shows however that the subject of the strike has now been narrowed Down to " Freedom of it Means " unionism or non unionism and we Are fully prepared to fight. The Gauntlet has been thrown Down and we will have to take it of. This is what the directors meant from the very this and nothing More. They want to break no the onions. We maybe beaten but we will show a Good fight and will not be disgraced. We Are quite convinced that the struggle will be a Long one and we ate preparing for it we Challenge the directors to name any place where the unionists and non unionists have worked Side by Side for any length of tame. As a matter of fact organised and disorganised labor cannot mingle any More than water and Oil broken hoi july 12, 8 . The labor defence committee held a Long meeting to Day at which the mine owners manifesto was discussed and the following reply was decided on the agreements of 1889 and 1890 were drawn up and agreed to by both sides to be binding and loyally adhered to. To show clearly that die directors have acted in a most dishonourable manner we jul Point out that if they intended or desired to terminate to agreements existing Between themselves and the miners their course of action was clearly provided in clauses 1 and 2. Had they wished to terminate the agreement sorely they had Home Good and sufficient reason for so doing and if so Why were they afraid to submit the matter to arbitration More especially when the agreement provided that a supreme or District court judge should act As Umpire. " but the True of the Case Ara that according to the agreement of 1890 the directors raised the Point in dispute of stoning Ore by contract which the agreement provided should not be done. The miners replied ask ing for Fuller information a to whether the intention was to introduce competitive contracting or a uniform rate for stoning All round As from the workers Point of View this was a very important matter. They also pointed out that the agreement existing by tween the two parties clearly provided for the proper course to pursue and should they desire to have the agr emf a in any Way altered or amended the miners would be prepared to refer the Point or Points at Issue to arbitration. To the Surprise of a miners an evasive and insulting reply w received to this harmless letter and when the again courteously approached the Directo asking that any Points in dispute Between the contending parties should be referred to arbitration in the interests of both the share holders and the miners they were met with the reply that the mining companies we ? going to terminate the agreement on july 30. It is very Clear that the directors once they raised the Point in dispute according to the agreement must As honorable men have allowed it to go to the tribunal provided by themselves for its settlement. Had they been Able in any Way to show justification for their actions they must have been prepared to submit the matter to an unprejudiced and Board. Bat strange to say they were not for instead they at tempted to shuffle out of the position they had taken no by giving notice mat the agreement would terminate on a certain Date. But in the meantime they proceeded to violate the agreement in a most outrageous manner. Clause 2 clearly provides that should a dispute crop no work shall proceed As usual Withers let or hindrance. In spite of this they immediately put the whole of the underground employees to secure the worst places in the mines with Timber so that before the miners had declared for a strike the furnaces were actually ran Down for want of Ore and men were discharged. Although we have As much right to claim that a ballot of shareholder should have been taken As the directors have to find fault because a ballot of men was not taken stir we would Point out to the shareholders that our men were consulted and it was on their unanimous vote that action was taken. There was not one Man who was affected but voted straight and considered it an insult to urge that a ballot should be taken1 but the Public must remember that the directors never consulted the share holders at ail a meeting of shareholders was called to Deal with purchasing the British smelters involving an outlay of �26,000, but the More important matter was never mentioned involving an actual loss to the companies of hundreds of thousands of pounds and perhaps in the Long run the no a altogether. The statement As to the mines not being Able to pay is absurd. Let the Public look at the . For every �100 paid for wages and material to work the mines More than �300 Baa been paid to the shareholders in profit. We Challenge the directors to name any other mining District in Australia where Ore is broken and. Brought to the surface at a Lees Cost than in broken Hill we will go further and positively state that the Ore Here is broken and brought to the surface at a less Cost by one third a i in any other mining District in Australia. The charge made against the miners of not doing a fair share of work is simply abuse without any foundation and the directors must certainly feel and appear in the opinion of a right thinking people to have acted a most dishonourable part in thus attacking a class of. Men while refusing to use Etc them and stand by the decision of an impartial judge. We Claun and can prove that the Miner works harder and does More work in broken Hill than elsewhere. The output and the men employed will prove it. Let that be published and the eyes of the shareholders will be opened. the 1890 agreement has been in operation the directors have in every Way tried to evade it the Minera Nave time and again asked that cer Tain matters should be referred to a conference or a Board of arbitration and have been snubbed again and again by those highly paid officials of the shareholders. Our men have been victimised and unless they patronised what was required them by the mine officials they were discharged. Any who took a prominent part or was Loyal to his Union and his principles As a Man was not Only Dis charged but was blackballed by the whole of the . On Good Friday a recognised Holiday the men were threatened that if they did not turn up to work they would be discharged. An investigation was promised into these and other matters but like All promises made by the associated mines it was made Only to be broken. We As miners do not claim that men should be paid alike but we do claim that the Miner Worth keeping is Worth 10s. Per Day. The Only difference in this matter Between the directors and the men is that the former con Eider that 10s. Should be the highest wages paid with a gliding scale downwards while the miners think that 10s. Should be lowest and that the scale should elide up wards. The directors and managers have made every attempt to employ As Many a poo Bible of those who Are not competent miners
