OUR DEBT TO LABOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 18 August 1910
OUR DEBT TO LABOR. 'For the core of the thing is this, though few perceive it as yet — We owe the laboring people a great un bearable debt. The debt of all that we are, , and all we are not, we owe /?. -?- ? To the people who toil unknowing, that -we untoiling may know; Our knowledge, our strength, our soul, our very body and blood, We owe to these who have made us, shaped us for ill or good, And to them shall the debt '.be paid; and all that theyr gave I will spend For them. They- have nourished me. They shall find they have nourished a friend ! A friend? I will BE the people, one heart and one soul with these, Who have lived hard lives and bitter, to give me a life of ease.' ' —Ellen -Nesbit.
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. THE FRANCHISE PHOENIX. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 18 August 1910
[?] THE FRANCHISE PHOENIX. Last week the Franchise Bill was dead. Suddenly it had by a misadventure dropped from the notice paper, and ceased to be. When the fatal division was taken Avhich gave the 'bill a majority, but not a 'statutory majority'of the whole House,' Tory opponents rushed from the Chamber loudly announcing the, to them, glad tid ings that the people had been defeated. ' Ofi.ll tlipv nnt hvinp- it- on sicrnivi '?' ntjkpfl one avIio Avas Availing in the corridors. ' No hope,' was the joj'ous reply. 'No- thing more can be done until next ses sion at the earliest.' A Aveek later the bill had been reintroduced, the standing orders suspended, the second and third readings carried, and the bill passed the Assembly, and Avas ready to be sent on to the Council, there to be slaughtered. The whole business occupied only ten hiinutes. Had last Aveek's fiasco not taken place the. debate might have gone on for an other fortnight, so that an actual saving of. time was effected by ...
THEATRICAL ARTISTS AND THEIR PAY. NEED OF A UNION. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 18 August 1910
THEATRICAL ARTISTS AND THEIR PAY. A ? ? NEED OF A UNION. It is hard lines, under-present condi tions, 'for a theatrical artist to be born in Australia. No local products have less preference in the Commonwealth than the talents of the actor or singer. The remedy is in the hands of the artist, but he rJrttio-n'f lrr»r*Tir i4* 7-f Via fli/^ \\cx WAI 1 111 TVT*fiV\-. ably scorn it. He should form a Union. Recently a comedian was imported from London at a salary of £30 per week. He was such a failure that lie had to be ship ped back again. There being no time to import1 anyone in his place, the part was given to an Australian. The latter is still playing it and making a success of it. He receives £8 per week. It may- be argued that £8 per week is sufficient pay for 'an actor. Is an actor as much use to the community as a skilled mechanic? Personally, I. don't think he is, but that isn't the point. What challenges comment is the undeniable fact that the Australian theatrical artist, howe...

SWEATING OF NEEDLEWOMEN Mr. Meagher Blocked from Exposing Their Conditions [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 18 August 1910
SWEATING OF NEEDLEWOMEN Mr. Meagher Blocked from Exposing Their Conditior* On Monday evening, in the New South Wales Assembly, Mr. Meagher, member for Phillip, was curiously chokad off in an attempt to 1 address the House on the sweating of women engaged in needle work for' employers at their own homes. The hon. gentleman had moved the ad journment- to discuss 'a definite matter of urgent public importance,' and had just opened his address when without any ! point of order he was abruptly pulled, up by the Speaker. The latter said he could not regard such a subject as definite. Mr. Meagher might rove over the whole State and the subject of its treatment of women doing needlework for employers. Mr. Meagher said he purposed limiting himself to Sydney and suburbs, but the Speaker said that even so the proposal was not definite within the meaning of the Stand ing Orders of the House. The motion might be amended and moved at a future time. Mr. Meagher subsided, saying at the same time th...

ADVANCING YEAKS. One by one, the years pass by! Each bearing its burden of sorrow and joy, pain and pleasure. Each leaving its im press upon our characters and our bodies. Each, alas! passing quicker than its pre decessor. A deadly procession, over whelming all but memory as it advances; ruthless as the waves of the sea. We know it will submerge us finally, but until it does we may just as well stand bravely in its front, breasting its power, without cowering. Whilst we have health we can bo stand with good heart, but advancing years are apt to sap at and undermine our strength. Few of us who have passed life's climax, and are descending the vale, but suffer from common ills, such as rheumatism, gout, indigestion, biliousness, neuralgia, lumbago, sick headache, gene ral debility, backache, sciatica, anaemia, Wood disorders, gravel, stone, and blad der troubles, and it is with the object of enabling such sufferers to shake off the burden and become well and strong that we once again ...

However, Mr. Fisher took on liis questioners with considerable in terest and answered them fully and fairly.
