BOOKS WELL WORTH READING. 1. Bellamy's "Looking Backward." [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 1 March 1890

BOOKS WELL WORTH READING. 1.—Bellamy's "Looking Backward."   SOME will say that all books are worth reading, but don't believe any such thing. All book may be worth reading to the man or woman who has the curse of eternal life and the blessing of eternal patience, but com- paratively few of the millions that have been written are worth reading to average-lifed, average-patienced people, especially when so   many books are being written now which put into language such as everybody can under- stand the deepest thoughts and the most brilliant imagery; which come to us as reve-   lations of something long sought for, as re- calling of scenes long forgotten, as articula- tions of the unvoiced feelings that thrill our hearts and quiver in our brains; books which   are indeed the greatest gift that one human being can make to another, because they tell us in fascinating romance or impassioned pleading or clear, simple logic, what life is...

CHAPTER I.—INDUSTRY AS IT IS. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 1 March 1890

CHAPTER 1.—INDUSTRY AS IT IS. I FIRST saw the light in the city of Boston in the year 1857. "What," you say,   "eighteen fifty-seven? That is an odd slip.   He means nineteen fifty-seven of course." I beg pardon, but there is no mistake. It was about four in the afternoon of December the 26th, one day after Christmas, in the year   1857, not 1957, that I first breathed the east wind of Boston, which I assure the reader, was at that remote period marked by the same penetrating quality characterizing it in the present year of grace, 2000. The statements seem so absurd on their face, especially when i add that I am a young man apparently of about thirty years of age, that no person can be blamed for refusing to read another word of what promises to be a mere imposition upon his credulity. Never- theless I earnestly assure the reader that no imposition is intended, and will undertake, if he shall follow me a few pages, to entirely convince him of t...

LOOKING BACKWARD. 2000-1887. THE GREAT REORGANISATION NOVEL. PREFACE. HISTORICAL SECTION, SHAWMUT COLLEGE, BOSTON, DECEMBER 28, 2000. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 1 March 1890

LOOKING BACKWARD 2000-1887. THE GREAT REORGANISATION NOVEL. BY           EDWARD BELLAMY   Author of "Miss Ludington's Sister";     Dr. Heindenhoff's Process"; "A Nantucket     Idyl," &c., &c. PREFACE       HISTORICAL SECTION, SHAWMUT COLLEGE, BOSTON, DECEMBER 28, 2000.           LIVING as we do in the closing year of the twentieth century, enjoying the blessings of a social order at once so simple and logical that it seems but the triumph of common sense, it is no doubt difficult for those whose studies have not been largely historical to realise that the present organisation of society is, in its completeness, less than a century old. No historical fact is, however, better established than that till nearly the end of the nineteenth cent...

PLAIN THOUGHTS FOR PLAIN THINKERS. I.—The Responsibilities of Labour. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 1 March 1890

PLAIN THOUGHTS FOR PLAIN THINKERS. I.—The Responsibilities of Labour. "FROM each man according to his abilities,"   said Louis Blanc, giving us in that phrase the key-note to the dignity of labour—or to   its responsibilities, which is the same. Yes!   Man, whoever he is, has ability—greater     abilities perhaps than he may think himself possessed of. In every one of us there is the gem that will quicken into life if our exer- tions foster its development. If we call from all parts those great men who have benefited mankind, we see them towering from the ranks of the people. What was Socrates? a stonemason. Christ?       a carpenter's son. Mahomet? a camel driver.     So from the misty past to the modern present the list goes on swelling. These men were   with the people, suffered for the people, and claimed the people's rights. By their own...

THE AUSTRALIAN LABOUR FEDERATION. Draft Scheme of the Coming Great Organisation. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 1 March 1890

THE AUSTRALIAN LABOUR FEDERATION. Draft Scheme of the Coming Great Organisation. The following is the draft scheme as recom-   mended by the old A.L.F. of Brisbane to its   affiliated societies and the labour unions of the colony generally, and as agreed to by the shearers, carriers, and C.Q. labourers' unions at their annual meetings at Blackall and Barcaldine last month. All who desire the well-being of the workers should study it up,   and if their societies have not yet accepted it, should work day and night for it till it hsa gone through:—   (a) Name. THE AUSTRALIAN LABOUR FEDERATION. (b) Constitution The Federation shall consist of labour union consoli- dated for mutual assistance and the furtherance of the cause of Labour generally, which Federation shall be   governed as provided in clause (e).   (c) Objects.            ...

WOMEN AT WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 1 March 1890

WOMEN AT WORK. THE Queensland hired girl gets 10s. a week and the Madagascar hired girl 3d. But the Madagascar damsel gets it easy, and has all the comforts of her people, while the Queens- land hired hired girl is generally regarded as a machine, and very often housed like a dog.   Even thoughts are epidemic and so are strikes. Mr. Besant's successful generalship of the London match-girl strike against   Bryant and May has evidently stirred up the 600 women "packers" in the Christiania (Norway) factories. They were paid 9s. a   week of 72 hours, toiling amid the poisonous phosphorous vapour, and made a stand for shorter hours, no fines, and sanitary arrange- ments. The first woman's union in Norway was formed among them by prominent men and women who espoused their cause, and they won.                 An organisation of charitable women in B...

General Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 1 March 1890

General Notes. ERRATA.—For "commercial right to land" on last line but 10, first column, third page, read "communal right to land."             AFTER consulting lawyers, cabling distrac- tedly, and otherwise showing its dislike to disgorge, the Brisbane London Dock Strike Fund Committee sent its balance of £444 1s. 11d. to the Lord Mayor on Tuesday. Com- ment unnecessary. THE Boot Trade Union (Brisbane) adopted the Federation scheme without admendment, and read reports from the South showing trade to be very fair, on Monday night. THE Government printers and their best girls went on a picnic to the Aquarium last Wednesday. When it was fine they all looked at the animals, and when it was wet they all danced in the big hall. Such is life!         THE April WORKER will summarise the points of difference between the Queensland Shearers Union Rules and the Ama...

SMOKE HO! [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 1 March 1890

SMOKE HO! IT is said that Chief Justice Lilley intends   at some future day to still further explain his views on the relations of the worker and the State.                   The latest country to bar out the Chinese is Ecaudor, South America. It begins to look as though the Caucasian weren't quite as played out as the Pro-Chinese thought. A Spanish coal-miner led the Lisbon "mob" which demonstrated so emphatically against the Salisburg bullying of Portugal. For good or evil the workers are getting able to lead themselves.           It is impossible for the intelligent skilled mechanic to hold his position, let alone im- prove it, without the co-operation and sup- port of the unskilled.—Journal of United   Labour. ' ' - It has been suggested that anti-union magis-  ...

IN THE WORKER'S WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 1 March 1890

IN THE WORKER'S WORLD. THE Brisbane Butchers' Union cleared £3 3s. 9d. in 1889. In 1890 it should be £339. Engine drivers on American railways aver- age 1½d. per mile for passenger trains, and 2d. per mile for goods. No less than 140,000 out of 300,000 English miners were ready, anxious, and willing to strike for the Eight Hour Day.   The Windsor Shire Council pays 10s. a day for dray work. If the lucky tenderers can't   keep man, horse and dray out of this, the man can either die or pull the buggy himself. In spite of recent "concession," bakers in Brisbane still work from 70 to 90 hours per week. No wonder bread is bad, and the Statute Day unpopular—with the sweaters.   There are 1,000 names on the roll of the   (C.Q.) Working Men's Parliamentary Associa-   tion, funds are lovely, and if the present Par- liament can be squeezed into passing a fair electoral bill, the "squatter country" will be transmogrified next ele...

LUCINDA SHARPE ON WORKMEN'S WIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 1 March 1890

LUCINDA SHARPE ON WORKMEN'S WIVES. IN my short life I've heard enough about the woes of the workman to make Methuselah full up. If I'm to believe it all, the hewer   of wood and drawer of water is the most ill- used of all created things. But I'd like to know about how the hewer of wood and drawer of water who wasn't created at all, but was fixed up out of the jawbone of an ass or the rib of a man, or something of that sort, when the lord of creation had tired him- self to sleep manufacturing such antediluvian names as ichthyosaurus, ornithorhynchus, and such. I suppose workmen have their troubles,   in fact, I'm ready to admit they've so many   that if they were really men they wouldn't stand them for a minute longer; but the   workman's wife has all her husband's troubles   and her own as well; and the worst of it is she can do nothing. He can go on strike, but she must bear it like a bullock that can't get   away fr...

THE EDITORIAL MILL. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 1 March 1890

THE EDITORIAL MILL. This first issue of the Worker is not altogether what it should be. A week, for there was little more, is hardly time enough therein to make all working arrangements for getting out a paper - the mere publishing of which is a gigantic task, owing to the tremen- dous number of subscribers who have to be reached with as yet imperfect means. How- ever, for any shortcomings some forbearance is certainly due. The next number will show a little more what is possible on the Worker lines from a literary point of view ; and if secretaries, delegates and members generally will lend hearty assistance to the trustees in the work of getting the circulation straightened out, that also will soon be smooth running. Any member of any co- operating society can have his paper sent to his address anywhere on application made through his secretary.       The political atention of the Worker will be limited to those questions which closely affect...

THE WORKER'S MONTHLY LEADER. March, 1890. THE GOSPEL OF ORGANISATION. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 1 March 1890

THE WORKER'S MONTHLY LEADER. THE GOSPEL OF ORGANISATION. THE workers of Australia are organizing not by petty trades or in jealous sections, by score and dozens only, but in great conglo- merate masses, by hundreds and thousands   and by tens of thousands. And Queensland leads. While the men of the South have been talking the men of the North have been doing, have formulated a Federation scheme, and are coming together like flood waters that run a banker, like the lightnings of quivering thunder-clouds on a sweltering summer night. The bushman has stretched out his hands to clasp in union with the tradesmen of the towns and the dweller by the sea. The miner hesitates, but the miner's heart is as true as his arm is strong, and the miner will not be the last to sign the pledge of industrial brotherhood. The wharf labourers are to the fore, and their near cousins, the seamen, are not far off. The artisan marches in under banners that have borne the brunt of many a &amp...
