(Received Oct. 3, 10.40 a.m.) Sydney, October 3. A number of miners belonging to the Southern collieries have been fined for a breach of agreement. Melbouene, October 3. The legal profession have given £50 to the Employers fund, and voted £10 per -week so long as the Chief! Justice contributes to the strike fund. The Employers' Union has decided m favor of a Conference with the labor bodies, and is consulting the Unions m Other colonies. It is said importers are so determined to stop th« strike as their only salvation from ruin that they brought pressure to bear on the employers. Attached to counsel's opinion to the shearers was a private recommendation advising that m loyalty to Unions and m justice to sheepowners the men should carry out their contracts. Influenced by this opinion the Labour Defence Committee decided unanimously that shearers should return to work. It was felt this would be a politic step, and might pave the way to a general conference. Work will accordingly be resumed, to-day.
