The above suit having terminated so far As the litigants Are concerned Tho ease might now be allowed to remain whore Tho court has loft it if during the trial certain facts relating to the Telegraph As a journal Hau no transpired for whilst it in to Sbialo to pass Over in silence All Tho merely personal avonts of Tho Case it is not possible to Overlook some of Tho state ments made with regard to this journal. It was said during the course of the trial of Tho press generally that information concerning the labour Side of Tho struggle was not fully and properly Given and in addition it was said that the Telegraph in particular made statements which wore " internally no one Ever pointed out an alleged false statement made by this journal and therefore to this Day it has never been possible to refute what was said. Perhaps too much attention ought not to to paid to Tho allegations. Thoy were made by persons who at Tho time were very angry by persons who either had been deceived or were acting a Vicy malicious port who had entered on a conflict which Thoy thought themselves Able to carry to a successful Issue if not easily at least by such efforts As Thoy Felt themselves Ablo to make and who eventually discovered that they were Likely to meet with a notorious and disastrous failure. It brands to reason that they Scro angry and perhaps on this account As to have said too much attention must not to paid to their words. But when Tho same statements substantially were afterwards and in Cool moments repeated in a court of Law Tho Case was Mado to Wear a totally different form and these statements Scro deliberately made and of a sat purpose. During Tho Striko there were three sources of information for Tho newspapers. Ono of these was in the offices of Tho leaders of Tho strike Tho second was through Public meetings and Tho other by direct made to the press. In regard to the first of these uniformly and persistently representatives of this journal Wero told that Thoro was no information to give hut information that was at Tho Timo supplied was always published in full to Tho very letter. In regard to Public Moc Tings several of these were very fully reported and if any were not to fully reported the reasons were either that nothing fresh was said or that what Wab said was Mere Persona abuse and it was Only reasonable to bup Poso that every resp Stablo newspaper would decline to circulate such matter apart from Tho fact that a Good Doal of it was defamatory. In re Oronce to Tho third source of information no letter or Othor communication received at this off co from acknowledged leaders or representatives of that body was refused insertion. Two or three communications were Laid aside Ono because it was distinctly an advertise ment and the others because either they covered Tho Samo ground that other Lotters had already covered or Thoy Wero so defectively written that they could not to Given out As " so that to say that Tho Telegraph refused information that might to in favour of Tho strikers or that it made a statement which was untrue is to make a statement indisputably not according to fact. We do not wish to say that Tho statement was a lie nor that Tho Man who made it was an infernal liar but we Havo no hesitation in baying that Tho Man who Mado that statement if classed in Tho above category would not to incorrectly placed. When it web made in the defence there was an air of jealousy about it As if Tho privilege of lying Wero Peculiar to Only one class of persons. Why should not newspapers Lio us Well us other professions ? Thoro was therefore no need on this score to be jealous and moreover Tho bar nowadays with perhaps Ono or two conspicuous exceptions will to held to consist of persons who even professionally speak the truth As conscientiously and continuously us their Neighbours do. This apparent jealousy As if in favour of Tho Croft Wab for All conceivable reasons and purposes quite uncalled for. Perhaps the most serious statement made during Tho struggle a statement repented deliberately during the into trial was that Tho newspapers in general and Tho Telegraph in particular endeavoured to crush unions. Had that object Ever Boon contemplated by the newspapers they would Liao operated upon it Long before the Striko Thoy would be operating upon it now. Tho fact is that the destruction of Tho unions was never thought of. The thing that was in dispute was the affiliation of a certain Union with unions already affiliated. This is so Well known that it seems absurd to repeat it. But the state ment Mado in court last week cells for the emphatic assertion that neither Tho employers of labour nor Tho newspapers in Australia Ever lifted so much As their Little Finger to destroy the unions. Tho reasons Aro that unions of working men Are not contrary to natural right and As a matter of fact Thoy Aro recognised by statute Law. If this Scro not so the masters themselves could not Havo United and it would to absurd to say that Tho masters whilst themselves engaged in doing a certain thing endeavoured to crush Tho unions also engaged with the same object. They did not object to affiliations in Tho abstract their objection was to the affiliation of no particular Union with Tho rest. At this Point it May to Eon Venont to mention that it has been charged against Tho masters and the or j3s that they introduced As the subject of the quarrel their right to employ Freo labour and that this was their chosen weapon with which to crush Tho unions. Hardly anything could to said further from Tho truth the facts being that ships officers averted their Freedom to do n certain thing. No Ono Ever denied that they had a natural and lawful right to do what Thoy wished to do. But obviously it was also Tho right of employers to say whether or not they would continue in their service persons who Wero associated with labour unions in a manner which they deemed would Oporto injuriously to their interests. It was Here that Tho question of their right to employ Freo labour naturally and inc it ably presented itself. Thoy made no Choice of it the thing was forced upon them and they must either have taken the course indicated or Havo gone on to Tho ruin of their commercial interests. It is conceivable that these things Wero not known to persons who daring the coarse of the trial last week made statements so directly contrary and whilst As to Havo said to Havo no desire to say that the persons who Mado them were informal liars to again repeat their classification in a Given category would not he incorrect. We do not suppose for a moment that these facts had anything whatever to do with the result of the trial that it May he assumed was considered by the jury to legitimately follow from the facts placed before them and they May to excused from not noting that what is said of men As a class and in a Public manner is a totally different thing from what is said of an individual and in his private Enka Eirv. They May he excused for no thinking that words used under a Given bet of circumstances Ore defamatory and it would he a mib Tako if jurors were called upon to judge things by the and Homine principle by asking themselves How they would Liko it if similar things Wero said of them. But As we Hugo pointed out these Are the personal factors in the Case and for Tho present at any Rato they will to allowed to remain As they Aro. In regard to the general question it is indisputably the fact that the Side of the contest taken by the Telegraph admittedly won the Victory and universally at least by impartial persons it is allowed that the Victory Wab won not so much by might As by right and that if employers had not won the Victory it is impossible to fore cast How Grout would Havo been Tho disturbance of Trade same industries at least being rendered almost impossible and others would have had to to carried on at a loss which would have hastened their promoters ruin. At this moment Thoro is every Prospect that every Union and that every Freo labourer will find at least something to do and Sinco Tho full employment of All workers is Tho first condition of Prosperity it is not rash to con clude that the strike ended Well. Tho part which Tho press took in it was both Wise and Beneficent. Any personal in convenience which May he suffered by those who took a prominent port in it on Tho Side of Tho employers is sufficiently recompensed by Tho present Promise of Prosperity.

It is pleasant to Seo that things Sre brighter Thoro is More than a rift in the Olond. It has been commanded that there be Light. The brightening of the Day is one to Tho fast that More work la boing done. Report bits that at Newcastle the mines Are at full swing. Work there Means Prosperity in a Way of its own one on never to Enro that a factory at work moans business but mines at work always do. The product of mines though not Peri Hahlo As an article of Oom meroe must from the Exi Conoles of the work be got Oil hand straight away. Tho tons of thousands of Tony of goal raised Thoro per week rep resort not Only local activity but activity also whore also. This re Vival in id Strite is duo in no Small degree to Tho fast that there is Moro sons done Between Man and Man. If that Toni Denoo is not wickedly interfered with it will become stronger and Load to Atill Groat or Prosperity. Law and morality. Some Eon Thern journals Ore troubled Over the supremo court decision in the Amby Duwor shearing oases. They say Tho decision must be regarded As a convenient one for men with an imperfect perception of moral perhaps so but that As it happens does not touch either Tho facts or the Law of the Oak be. The fact As finally dist showed that Here and not Boon Tho sort o agreement that is usually taken to sustain what is Oal cd a moral or better still a natural obligation. It was re lied upon to do that but it could not a made to do it and the Refet Enoe to possible causes justifying the action of Tho men in leaving work were in needs Ary Thoy Wero in fast so far As they were adduced inapplicable. The whole Cape had to to considered As falling under a statute Luw. Had Tho agreement been made under that Law reasons for leaving work would have been admissible in evidence but it was not under that Law and could not to brought Nandor it. It requires an Effort for to Lay mind and sometimes the Legal mind to Realise that things not done under an not cannot even in Tho judiciary be brought under it und that things done under an not arc governed by Legal and not by moral considerations. The if feet of Tho do Oreion will not be at All As suggested by our contemporaries that in to Lead Aion of Loose moral principles easily to break contracts but it will rather opt Rato to make All parties reasonably of artful when entering into contracts oboe orally if such contracts involve great interests. Electric lighting. The apparent desire of some members of Tho corporation frantically to Rush into All the risks of Electrio lighting May Chance to Reo Oivo a Cheek when it is known that " the Eleutrio lighting companies in London hero notre Alliod the dividend paying at ago yet but the directors of the metropolitan Eleutrio Supply company report that what promises to to a Large and remunerative business in being built up and they look Forward to a satisfactory dividend being earned during Tho on Euing Hope always did Tell a flattering Talo and it would he disappointing and Dis Stroub if these com panics should not pay. But ail the ame there still is the outstanding question whether a municipal corporation ought either to Inonu the risk or to net the profits of a business Well and indeed rather better carried on by a private party. Tim absence of dividends in London companies is not altogether unaccounted fur. A Good Deal of the work is initial and not at onco remunerative.
