The story most frequently told about -Mr. Mabee's practice at the bar Is, ,of course, 'the "famous "Woodstock horse which has been so snarl- ed un: with ;much telling that few people are sure of the correct details The circumstances, however, were as follows: Mr. Mabee was one of the counsel In a rasp inx-nhing Of a horsed The hair on the eiiuiue had grpwji 30 long that an identifying mark couJd not be distinguished. Said Mabee privately opposing coun- ael, "Let's .settle this thing by having the brute clipped." Said the oppos- ing counsel to Mabee, "Sure thing." Said the court when both lawyers made the proposition, "No. Tha would be contrary to.all precedent. Some time that night the ttable in which the horse was lockec was broken into, :and the animal was clipped. -The identifying mark w in laid bare.

Th whole of flio Commonwealth has boo asituted over the recent experienct oi Brisbane, where SOHW fifty trade unions held up all business, industry nnti transport because the local tram way company refused lo allow theii employees lo wear union badges while on duty. Further Uetnils show that the strik- ers 'themselves wore, as might hnvo been expected, tho principal sufferers from the paralysis they brought about. It did not take, the loaders long to see what a surlous error in tactics had been Empty Larders The employers wore able to stock their homes with tinned meats, Hour, drinkables; the employees, in most cases, had to go 'out, to light with tho knowledge- that his larder was either empty or likely to become so before very' long. It is almost pitiable to read of the way in which the workers in the huge railway shops at Ipswich asked the government to suspend work for a few days, so that ilhjy need not go on strike, but at tho same time appear to he loyal to both the state and the unions. Fortunately the government, which, for a day or two, looked like taking a weak hand in the business, refused any such compromise with its public duty. But the hold-up was not all on one side. Hotels Closed The moment the unions issued their IHUSO against tho public the large -r s "g carr i a uin. liimed their '-horses out into paddocks, .the' Federation decided to close down business tne Mock change suspended operations, and the Licensed .-Victuallers' .Association persuaded the "government to ordei the closing of all hotels for a week.

But ,in Commissioner Ca- n't 11 a firm and unyielding leader was round' for thn foot' and mounted po- lice, mobs were soon taken in hand, and order maintained. A few heads were broken, some shop windows smashed in, and a sub- inspector of poiiceffired upon with a revolver. The commissioner pro- hibited processions, and several 1m dreda of special police were sworn while large drafts came in from tl country. The thousands of nnionis out bf work ?nt[ parading the -stree had nothing to do; They were n- allowed to keep themselves in crowt iy means of-processions, and at tl sime time they, could find no occup tion in picketing because there iv nothing to picket. -The best-of ih labor leaders persuaded .the men t keep order, and not fa disgrace the: union B Entire Approvaf Trade unionists in other parts c the Commonwealth seem to have n garded this concerted attack on sc ciely entire approval.
