(Received 9.30 a.m.) SYDNEY, this day. Last night a bomb exploded in the vicinity of the police quarters and the residence of the manager of t£e Central Mine, Broken Hill, but little damage was done. At a public -meeting in Gunnedah, N.S.W., last week, addressed by Peter Bowling and another member of the Miners' Federation, motions protesting against the trial of the Broken Hill union officials at Albury, and threatening to lay down tools if the Government persisted in their intention, were declared carried. When the motions were put, although several hundred people were present, but only ten or a dozen hands were held up. After a short lapse the motion was declared carried by acclamation. In his speech Mr. Bowling challenged the Government to arrest him for advocating a strike contrary to the law. The chairman of unionists' at a mass meeting at Broken Hill said that before the men decided about going out on general strike they should see that their women and children were provided for. He hoped a referendum would be taken before any order issued to down tools.
