THE "FLYPLANE" [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 12 October 1918
TIffi 'aYFLANE.' Many attempts have been made in the past to equip the human body with wings which would enable flights similar to those of birds to T-e undertaken. Inventors in this field were foredoomed to failure owing to the fact that a man has not enough power to lift his own weight in the air together with that of the necessary apparatus. Moreover, these attempts were based upon the up-and-down motion of the planes, similar to the movement of a bird's wings in. flight. 'Now that me chanical power in a light form Is available, white the gliding motion lias .proved to be the most efficient, the small flying ma chine is a much more 'hopeful proposition, ana what is known as a 'f ly.plane' has re-^ cently been devised by an American in ventor homed Capps. This contrivance* consists of a very small aeroplane in which the flyer is carriea In a, 'fitting up right' position, his legs taking the plane' of the usual wheels for rising and alight-' ing.

THOSE RESOLUTIONS. London, June 28, 1916.— 'Mr. HUghea' r said: 'We should, use the Paris resold-! tions to strike a blow at Germany's heart, guaranteeing the Allies a woFld economic' independence.'' Extract' from 'War -and Peace,' a London magazine, .edited by Norman Angell, July/ 191i6: — :'On Juhe - 21 there appeared a document of the most sinister cnaracter, tne report oi xne iiico nomic Conference in Paris. The resolu tions carried amount to a declaration that the Allies propose to carry on an eco nomic war against Germany and Austria, after they have professed to make peace with those countries. There is a sentence, in this sinister document from which we may derive some comfort, *tbe resolutions are to be submitted to the Allied Govern ments for approval.'' This morning we have the comment of Mr. Gompers speak-., ing for American Labor, and he says, the...' same' as President Wilson. Economic ie-r., strictions are denounced.

A TRADE WAR. CAPITALISM'S TRIUMPH OVER RELIGION. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 12 October 1918
A TRADE WAR. CAPITALISM'S TRIUMPH OVER RELIGION. If we ai-e quite honest with, ourselves we shall not be content with the statement that the war is a struggle between Ger man militarism and democratic freedom (says Harold Begbie). It is in truth, -if we go deep enough, a terrific conflict, be tween German and British commerce. German militarism is the sledge-hammer of the German bagman. The . German people are not fighting to rule the world, but to capture markets; ruling the world is only the natural and relatively unim portant consequence of the bagman s vic tory. They want trade^ — they want the world's trade — and they have made them selves a nation of soldiers, not because they love war, but because they are set upon commercial supremacy, . ;Every publicis); in Germany supports the contention of German statesmen that .this war is caused by jealousy of Ger many's commercial greatness. And the German democracy is convinced of it. Now Eeligrion is impotent in this crisis ?because ...
PROFIT-SHARING. SYDNEY PROFESSOR ON PROPOSALS, EFFECT TO DESTROY UNIONISM. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 12 October 1918
PROFIT-SHARING. SYDNEY PROFESSOR ON PROPOSALS, EFFECT TO OESTROY UN4UNI8M, : ' Professor Irvine (Professor of Economics at the Sydney University) was Interviewed a few days ago on the subject of profit sharing. He described it as an incom plete system of co-operation. It had no contemplation of an alteration of the wages relationship, though it aimed at tha removal of certain difficulties incidental to the ordinary methods of wages pay ment. He continued: 'I sat on a commission in 1912 on the matter. I remember one instance in which a crew of four men belonging to a fishing craft worked on a profit-sharing scheme. One of the crew owned the boat and gear. The profits were divided into five parts, two of which went to the owner of the gear. It was calculated that he made 150 per cent, profit on his capital. 'Critics point out that profit-sharing is not a partnership. It is one-sided. Tho employer still controls the direct indus try absolutely, and he. controls the book keeping. -1 The...

FINANCING THE WAR, AND AFTER THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 12 October 1918
FINANCING THE WAR, AND AFTER THE WAR. fl*HE enormous burdens piling up on ? the people of Australia as a result of the war are already being severely felt by the working classes in the shape of enormously high prices, which in effect mean reduced wages. As the wealthy classes — that is, the landowners, financiers, manufac turers and traders — never forego meir pronts in times or national stress, it means that the working classes — that is, all wage-earners and small producers — provide the whole of the additional taxes, including the heavy interest on war debts, by the higher 2-rices they pay for commodi ties and the lower standard of com fort they are forced to endure. This unjust condition of things can only be remedied by making direct levies upon wealth in the shape of rent, in terest, profits and dividends. As Australia has succeeded in raising approximately eighty millions a year in war loans for purely destructive purposes, and could continue to raise an equal amount per annu...
