(Per Press Association.—Copyrioiit.] SYDNEY, November 3. In the Legislative Assembly yesterday Mr Lyne moved a motion of censure in reference to the Lucknow strike. Ho strongly condemned the Minister of Mines' (Mr S. Smith) minute, which, he said, outraged all precedents by attempting to influence the mining Warden. It was a diabolical and cowardly outrage on all fair play and political decency. Premier Reid replied in a. strong defence. He said that the Minister had honestly carried out the power placed in his hands, and the Government were willing to stand or fall on the propriety of the issue of the minute. The debate stands adjourned. After Mr Lyne's speech the Labor party held a caucus, and unanimously decided to support the Government. The result is, therefore, a foregone conclusion. HOBART, November 3. In the Legislative Assembly the amendment on the no-confidence motion, proposing that the construction of the railway lines over which the trouble arose be referred to the Crown law officers, was adopted by 17 to 16. A further amendment that this be not taken as a vote of censure was adopted by 19 to 14. The Premier then adjourned the House. It is rumored that the .Government will accept the first amendment as a vote of censure and resign. Sir Philip Fysh's constituents have asked him to resign his portfolio, but he replied that he.would not desert.the Pre- j mier at the present juncture.
