CONTROL OF THE ABATTOIRS. SYDNEY, February 15. The secretary of tho Australian Workers' Union declared that there is a conspiracy on the part of the Employers' Federation to keep meat.from the public. He considers that tho i Government should step in and control j the abattoirs:
• The Government, he says, would-be justified in immediately arresting and putting in gaol every member of the ! committee appointed by the Employers' Federation. There was a recent precedent for deportation of the members of this committee. The Union could place 5000 men, armed if necessary, at the service of the country to protect the interests of the public and ensure food supply.
