January 9. 1903. A telegraphic Puzzle. Two telegrams widely different in some respects but kill Ray significant in the same direction Lave been published in the Register during the last few Days. The nest shows that the Imperial government recently supplemented several messages which had been sent to Australia announcing the accumulated triumphs won by the mar Coni system of wireless telegraphy by a suggestion that it is desirable ill the interests of the Empire that the Commonwealth should not transact any telegraphic business with Signor Marconi until the authorities in Down ing Street had been consulted and the obvious purpose of such a consultation must be to prevent the Marconi companies from subsequently entering in to any engagements with the austra Lian Federal telegraphic department. It was further intimated thai sired Niaud Barton upon receipt of this message declined to entertain certain propositions submitted to him in behalf of the representatives of the Marconi system with the object of establishing atmospheric telegraphic communication Between new zealand and Australi i. As though this were not enough the prime minister said in effect not Only will we do nothing ourselves with wireless telegraphy in the Circum stances but. As to claim a monopoly in All telegraphic body else shall do anything in the matter if this Means a attempt to Humour the prejudice or any other Quality of the Post office authorities in London officials who Are Proverdi j ally opposed to every change or Reform it is evident that the fable concern. Ing the dog in the Manger was not. Written without occasion. I the other Telegram to which special allusion has been made conveyed the intelligence that Signor Marconi says he will soon be Able to Send two Hundred words a minute without any wires at All. Presumably Over the longest As Well As the shortest Dis Tances whether on sea or on land. This result is in Prospect Only but in spite of Many deriding unsympathetic and incredulous critics the great italian inventor has invariably fulfilled his promises to the Public and when says that this Marvel can be wrought by him one May safely con clude that the tiling a almost As Good As done. The transmission of Mes sages at the rate of two Hundred words a minute would be a Munro noteworthy feat than has yet been accomplished in circumstances in any Way suggest rag a comparison. As Signor Marconi intends presently to Connei t Italy with South America and As he has already joined cauda and England by invisible Bonds it is not an unreasonable prediction that Mareon grains May soon be sent with regularity and facility Over the surface of the whole Earth even it interplanetary commune ratio by wireless telegraphy must Long remain an unrealized dream. And whatever the future May have in store the Commonwealth government should pause before entering into agreements for the construction of expensive Telegraph lines. If the mar Coni system can be operated Over thousands of Miles of turbulent Ocean in the Northern hemisphere Why should it not be applied with at least equal Success on comparatively Short stretches of Laud in the Southern we need not comment just now upon the docility with which the Federal government has apparently adopted the suggestion of the Imperial authorities that it should practically Boycott the Marconi system. Nor is it Neces sary to comment upon the significance of this determination closely succeeding the evidence of a disposition to give unfair preference to the Pacific Cable and thus pre judicially affect the lines belonging to the company which pioneered telegraphic Extension from the old world to Australia and which richly deserves every expression and Lively exercise of gratitude on Tho part of the states of the Commonwealth. No Good will be done either by bring ing railing accusations against the motives which inspired the Imperial of ver nuent to make what seems to an unfair and irrational request in detriment to the welfare of the Marconi companies. One May however Hazard the hint that the development of wire less telegraphy has advanced beyond the Point at which it might be Eue ered at or laughed at or disparaged As a Mere scientific toy. There can be harm further in giving to the casual Reader of the correspondence under re Ference a reminder that the Imperial government and persons of enormous Power who May unconsciously in fluence it Are heavily interested in Cable services and the substitution of wireless telegraphy for telegraphy with wires May eventually cause an Appal Ling depreciation in property. Certainly should Signor Marconi achieve ail that he claims to be Able to a coir plish one result of his Enterprise will be almost Catacol Ysreal disaster to Cable owning concerns. From a broader Point of View it is interesting to reflect that with Tho wide spread of the Marconi system the expression a All red Telegraph service will be meaning Jess. One advantage urged in favour of the All red arrangement was that in troublous times the cables could not he easily Cut by an enemy when they landed on British soil As they could be if they were brought to Shore on foreign territory but the air Waves Are common property and Genius with the Power to sever them has yet Arisen. Some optimistic specialists hold the opinion that by and by electric Power will be applied without any mechanical Agency but even if that expectation May not be realized reason has been Given for seriously considering the Assurance that before Many years shall have passed Telegraph and Telephone lines will be As unnecessary for Tho dispatch of intelligence As tinder Flint and steel Are now for the kindling of fires. ? a Welsh railway strike Large employers of labour and societies of workmen Are alike deeply interested in the judgment of the court of King Bench in the action brought by the Taffi Vale railway com Pany against the amalgamated society of railway servants for damages suffered by reason of the defendants having unlawfully and maliciously conspired to injure the plaintiffs in their business or by reason of an unlawful combination on the part of the defendants to carry on a strike by their servants and by reason of the defend ants having committed a violation of the Legal rights of the plaintiffs a verdict was Given against the Union and on tuesday the general Secretary or. Richard Bell . Reported that the damages and Law costs which the society was required to pay totalled f 0,000. In View of the enormous sex i Pense involved and the unlikelihood o Foj getting the judgment upset the Ajj sem bled delegates resolved not to Tavi the Case to Appeal and thus the most notable Legal struggle in the history of organized Lawlur ended and the action1 of the railway company in protecting itself against outside attacks is Justi fied of the Law. The railway affected runs through the District in South Wales which contains one of the Rich est coalfields in the world and of the i8,000,000 tons a year which constitutes Tho product three fourths is carried Over that line. Tie management of the concern. Is therefore a matter of National interest As Well As of Conse Quence to the shareholders. At mid night Between August 1 and 20, 1900, 1.227 employees left their duties. Of these ooh had Given notice which expired at that hour All the servants of the company being on fortnightly engagement 110 had Given notice Only a week Lief re. So that they were still under contract and thy remainder gave notice at All. The plaintiffs demonstrated that the strike was the result of instructions and eur courage Niento Given by the officials of the sail Way servants society. They produced a copy of a Resolution adopted by the executive on angst 111000, to sup port the men financially and a letter from i. Bell to the plaintiffs written on Tho following them of the above decision and announcing that he had been directed to take charge of the movement it was Ateo proved that at a mass meeting at Pontypridd held concurrently with the meeting of the executive in London or. George Holmes the defendants organizing Secretary took a leading part and that at his instigation the men were called out on the same night. The dispute was settled finally by sir Francis Hopwood permanent Secretary of the Board of Trade who visited Cardiff by desire of or. Ritchie now Chancellor of the exchequer. While the strike lasted the company was put to great inconvenience and expense. Instead of earning �14.000 As it would have done if Tho men had remained at work the com Pany is said to have been it of pocket �3,349 on the actual working of the line. About �0,000 was expended in obtaining assistance for carrying mails a and in All about �27,000 was lost. The Point of. Chief importance in the Case is that unions Are now subject to actions at Law. When the railway company sought an injunction against or. Bell and the society an application was made to have the name of the Union struck out. This was refused by or. Justice Farwell and although his decision was reversed by the court off Appeal it was restored by the House of lords the lord Chan cellar remarking if the legislature has created a thing which can own property which can employ servants and which can inflict injury it must be taken i think to have impliedly Given the Power to make it stable in a court of Law for injuries purposely done by its authority and procure ment prior to this decision although individual members were of course punishable for illegal acts the Union and its funds were regarded As inviolate. Before the court the society denied that it had either by itself or by agents conspired to molest or injure the plaintiffs and contended that if either ill. Holmes or or. Bell committed wrongful acts he did without its authority. The question was raised whether any act of the executive going beyond the Rulea could to made binding upon the Uziro the defendants urging that the Resolution of August 19, 11 00, was both unauthorized and opposed to the society registered rules. The defendants also asserted that the railway company had agreed to discontinue Legal proceedings if us men on Ami that this being it was not entitled to. Prosecute the action or to re cover damages. The reply to this Hist statement was that the plaintiffs merely promised to discontinue actions against their own men for breach of contract. The conspiracy and Protection of property act of 1875, while making certain acts punishable by Fine of imprisonment contains a proviso that attending near or at the House or place Wal Here a person resides works of carries on business. In or Der merely to obtain or communicate information shall not be deemed a watching or besetting within the mean ing of this Section for Many years to this qualification was Given an exceedingly Liberal interpretation but in is is the courts decided that the term watching or besetting applied to ii Deavours on the part of pickets to persuade men not to work for an employer and this View was applied in the Taff Vale Case. Unfortunately for the Union evidence was produced to show that the picketing which it introduced was accompanied with intimidation and even by assaults upon persons who were inclined to continue in the service of the railway company or to enter its employment. A system of terrorism prevailed. Seventy five Inci dents were cited of individuals having been interfered with. After the strike Many of the unionists were re engaged by the company and the books of the society indicated that �2,548 was directly expended on the struggle. Among incidental expenses were such items As Blackleg sent away 4/0, and capture of two Blackleg 7/3. Some of the objects of the Union Are most commendable if carried out Law fully and it is a thousand pities that contributions from hard earnings moneys which might be devoted to the support of orphans or to Grants in the Case of members per Manee itly disabled or killed by Accident should have been virtually thrown away. The decisions of the House of lords and the Law courts have however Given dignity to Union ism by recognising implied responsibilities and making it. Answerable for misconduct. Or. Bell. M.p., indicated that he judgment would have a Clias tuning and uplifting influence when he advised that on account of the new status Given to the unions men of grit who would rigidly administer and obey the rules of organizations should be preferred to irresponsible orators As members of the executive committees. In Many directions the verdict and the new Reading of the Law will prove of Benefit to the conscientious worker and tend to the preservation of Industrial peace Aud Prosperity. The pipe tenders. The information published in the Register to Day concerning the acceptance of a. Government tender for the Barossa and bund Aleer water pipes is interesting As far As it goes but it should in supplemented by further particulars. In the minds of thought Ful and experienced men it raises some curious questionings relative to the leading characteristics of state social ism among other things. When the management of a Large undertaking is animated 1 y motives of self interest and personal gain it is in 99 cases of i Hundred better and More economical thaa when such incentives Are Lack ing. This is one reason Why govern ment departments matter How. Excellent and conscientious their super visors May be Are notoriously expensive in comparison with private establishments. In the Light of such axiomatic truths the figures Given regard ing the pipe tenders Sepin Peculiar. According to official statements nine separate establishments tendered for the comparatively Small order of 9,078 tons of cast Iron pipes or about 42,000 separate pipes. The successful tenderer represented the management of the Glanville workshops and the tender in the sum of �58,000, was More than �9.000 less than the lowest Long the eight private offers. If the minimum competing sum privately offered was is per Cen. More Tau the Amot iut by which the Glanville workshops secured the contract what nut the maximum total have been that is one question to be pondered. Other very pertinent enquiries Are were the private tenderer acute business men or what were they v did they intend to pay higher wages than the govern ment 1. Did they want exorbitant pro fits and. If Why should they take All the trouble of competing when they ought to Jet on such a basis of computation they would have Chance of obtaining the work which they sought such a course might be adopted by inexperienced irresponsible men but the gentlemen con Tertod in this matter sure supposed to be cautious level headed and thoroughly expert in their business. If the Glanville works management is right in its calculations these other eight experts must be woefully wrong. Such a contrast manifestly requires to be carefully considered. The wonder of the casual observer who contemplates the result of the tendering is intensified because parliament having declined to authorize the Purchase by the government of a vertical Pip making Plant which May or May not be obsolete the Glanville establishment is limited to the use of the Bank or horizontal system for the manufacture of these pipes and that system is More expensive thaa the vertical which would have been employed by at least some of the private tenderer who thought the contract would necessitate a much larger outlay than the Glanville authorities believe it will involve. We shall not now expatriate upon the general advantage which would Lave accrued to the Community through the private undertaking of the work that is now to be Given to a government department and we do not raise Tho question whether the government inspection of government work is in the nature of things Likely to be As rigorous As the government inspection of private work. We repeat however that the Public will demand a much More definite explanation than has yet been furnished of what seems to be a staggering contrast Between Public Aud private tendering. Has in Terest been allowed for on the Cost of buildings Plant and All other capital expenditure which should fairly be taken into consideration in making up the contract has the successful ten Der been affected by the thought that if a private tenderer loses by an under taking the loss is painfully real to him but if a government establishment should suffer loss the transaction is merged As a bookkeeping the general accounts of the state and the taxpayer Lias to Bear the consequent Burden often without knowing it the least which should be insisted upon is that from first to last a careful Check and an absolutely fair account shall be kept of this Pip making undertaking. If in the end it should be clearly demonstrated that eight shrewd responsible and reputable firms All eager to secure the work contracted for have erred egregiously in their calculations much greater will be the Triumph of the Glanville works. If however the contrary position were established any state officials responsible for the Blunder must expect to meet the consequences of their miscalculations. Very injurious to the proper Progress of private Industry in the state would be the dissemination of the idea that when government depart ments tender for government under takings offers by private firms Are use Jess.
