The Labor Banner. Now, the troops of Mammon rally. Like hyenas from their lair. Where the vine should clothe the valley , And the rose be always fair. For a social storm Is brewing Round the thrones of the unjust— WoVkingmen, bo up and doing. Strong in Labor's final trust! Croesus with the people gambles, For his profit they are sold; See the workers on the shambles, Sweating life blood into golfl! You can hear their women weeping With the children in the slums March and wake the Nation's sleeping With the roll of Labor's drums!

Labor and Bolshevism. A.L.P.'s REPLY TO MR. T. R. BAVIN, M.L.A. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 1 March 1919

Labor and Bolshevism. A.L.P.'s REPLY TO MR. T, R. BAVIN, M.L.A. To the Editor. Sir, — Mr. T. R. Bavin, M.L.A., desires to know 'what portion of the Russian Bol shevist programme excites the admiration and sympathy of Australian organised Labor.' The following summary from the columns of the 'Manchester Guardian' — one of the few great English newspapers which has remained incorruptible in the present crisis — will supply the information he. desires: — ? 'The immense enthusiasm for education is a great Bolshevist asset. Training col leges for teachers have been founded, which are financed by the Soviet Council, with the ultimate design of establishing a school in every village. Co-operative so cieties have obtained a complete monopoly of internal trading. Profits have been re duced to a minimum, and are devoted to popular education. There is a more just police administration than under the old regime. There is no blackmailing. Taxa tion is raised by a levy upon capital, from which no...

THE BREAD LINE FOR THE WORKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 1 March 1919

THE BREAD LINE FOR THE WORKERS. A very nice little scheme indeed! is indicated by the announcement of the Government that it does not propose to institute a general mora torium, but that instead it intends to introduce a Bill into Parliament 'with the object of distributing IN CERTAIN CASES the losses due to the anti-influenza measures.' This Bill, it is stated, will provide for at least one-third of the total business losses to be borne by the Government, the remaining loss to be shared equally between the par ties concerned. The employees, it is further stated, are already being dealt with by the Government on 'analogous' lines, WITHOUT, IN THEIR INSTANCE, THERE BEING ANY NECESSITY FOR - LEGISLATION. 'Large sums,' says die official statement, expansively, 'are being distributed each week under a RELIEF SCHEME which has been organised, and the fullest possible measure of protection has been secured in all cases where the suspension of em ployment has caused hardship.' Most of which...

"Wait Till the Boys Come Home." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 1 March 1919

'Wait Till the Boys Come Home.' During the past few months we have heard these words uttered almost hourly, by men and women in every class, and consequently- with varying ideas at the back of the utterance. To Labor sup porters and the workers generally, hand or brain, from whom the large majority of dm soldiers were drawn, the pleasure of welcoming them home is marred by the Indignation at the scandalously careless Mid inhuman treatment to which so many have been subjected. Not that there 3houldbeany surprise; for* past experience should have taught us what sort of treat ment returning men would be likely to get from Capitalist Governments such as those now in office. As an evidence, however, jf how the dissatisfaction has spread be yond the ranks of Labor, the following extract, from a letter of one, who cer tainly must belong to the Nationalist Party, as he. confesses to a 'profound re spect for the daily newspapers,' makes in teresting reading: — 'Sir,— AS ONE ALWAYS ON THE SID...

Commonsense in Health and Disease. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 1 March 1919

Coxnmpnsehse in Health and Disease. Yesterday .we had the old shot-gun pre scriptions of the doctor who drew on the vegetable kingdom for his cures; to day vaccine therapy haB its vogue, to morrow the animal kingdom will be the fountain fromywhich the medico will draw his life-prolonging- extracts. America has at the present time an institution that spends millions of dollars a year in manu facturing ' organotherapeutic extracts, many of which are long past the stage of dcubtful use. Powdered duodenal mucosa of the sheep is given in cases of consti pation and general sluggishness of the glands of the stomach; in many cases it acts like a charm. Thyroid gland ex tract has its undoubted powers for good in myxoedema and other diseases. ' . ? ? ? No doctor ever cured a disease, no more than did any drug; they can assist, but if the body lias no resistance, nothing avails.

"Each is Necessary." POLITICAL AND INDUSTRIAL ACTION. HAS POLITICAL ACTION FAILED? [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 1 March 1919

'Each is Necessary.' POLITICAL AND INDUSTRIAL ACTION. HAS POLITICAL ACTION FAILED? 'V.'M.' writes:— The mind of the worker is subject to violent changes according to his experi ences of to-day. The lessons of yesterday are as a rule forgotten until a similar lesson be repeated, when the average man immediately beats and discards his imme iiate joss.. After the disastrous '91 strike the Labor Defence Committee, realising that there was no hope of success on the industrial field while the employers' representatives held the reins of government, in Its final report said: — 'He (the worker) must set about the wrork of reform where it seems that re form alone can be obtained — and that is Parliament.' Tet to-day there is a certain section of fanatical unionists who seek to abandon political action for the field of industrial activity alone. They fall to grasp the absolute necessity for the urgency of educating the worker on both industrial and political lines. O.B.U. AND LABOR PARTY, It ...

Artificial Baby Feeding. To the Editor, "Labor News." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 1 March 1919

Artificial Baby Feeding. To the Editor, 'Labor News.' Sir, — WhHst thanking your correspond ent, S. P. West, for a kindly 'reference fci: the work of the Child Study Association, I feel that I cannot allow your readers to imagine that the formula for 'the arti ficial feeding of infants, quoted by your correspondent, In any way conforms to tha teaching of the late Dr. Alan Carroll, who;, a was the founder of our- Association, and ? whose methods we follow. Dr. Carroll §3 absolutely forbade the use of sugar inr^j infants' food, and the one point which J he always emphasised was that milk iMsed*| for feeding babies must never be boiled. -| His reason for this was that the natural : food of a' child was living milk, drawn -| fresh and warm from the mother's breast ^ Such milk contained living organisms,^ which are called enzymes, which enable | the baby's immature and undeveloped dlrj gestive organs to change its motHer's milk i| into flesh and blood and living tissue.

Law and Order. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 1 March 1919

Law and Order. ?-. * 'Law and order' is a term invented ;and used by the rich ^and powerful for the permanent subjection of the poor and the weak.

Law versus Commonsense. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 1 March 1919

Law versus Commonsense. That 'the law is a hass' was wisely remarked many years ago. That it is becoming more stupid every day is an insult to the 'hass.' In Bathurst (N.S.W.) this week a plumber was fined 10/- and costs for preventing waste of valuable water. A water-pipe having burst dur- « ing the night he was called up at an early hour to repair the damage and stop the water running to waste. This ha promptly did, but he held no permit for ^ doing such work, and owing to the early hour there was no one in the office to issue the required legal permission. He therefore did the work first and obtained the permit later the same day. He was thereupon promptly summoned and fined. The magistrate admitted that the defen- a dant had done the right thing, but the * law said different, therefore he must be fined. Isn't such monkeying with com mon sense enough to make the victim a Bolshevik of pronounced views?

HUGHES AND THE KAISER. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 8 March 1919

HUGHES AND THE KAISER. The proposal to make Germany pay the cost of the war is still being talked about, but is no more likely to 'eventuate than the payment by the Turks of the cost of the Crusades. Reparation to Belgium, Northern France, and Servia for actual damage done will probably exhaust the resources of Germany for a generation. Australia's share in any indemnity will be no more than a few second-hand war ships, which may please Billy Hughes, but will prove an expensive liability to Aus tralia rather, than assets. The threatened hanging of the Kaiser has also passed into- the crowded limbo of electioneering dodges, although pro bably a humbler scapegoat may be called upon to suffer^for the Hohenzollern sins. ? ' ???? * ? ? In the meantime Sydney is happy at being freed from the odious and hideous mask, and takes more interest in its re covered liberties than in the Peace Con ference, or even the Petersham byelec tion.
