THOSE DARK DAYS [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 9 January 1892

THOSE DARK DAYS The Miirmnibidgee will never be set on fire by an Englishman. A few centuries ago Julius Csesar built a calendar, but as he wasn't much at figures he made the year too long* by about ten minutes. In a thousand years the time-table was of course found to be nine days behind. All the European na tions, bar England, at once made things square by simply dropping the nine days out of thsir reckoning, and by shifting the regulator provided that in future people wouldn't miss the first train because the sun rose a couple of hours before he had any business to. But in England they stuck to tho old style for another 200 years, and' it is only 140 years since John Bull woke up and found he was eleven days behind the time. He had a hazy kind of presentment that if he kept on losing at the same rate his birthday would catch up to his christen ing, or that somewhere in the dim and dis tant future he would lose a Christmas dinner, and that things would be mixed up generally if he ...

THE SARDINE BOX. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 9 January 1892

THE SARDINE BOX. The scene of this story in verse is laid in the interior of the South Island of New Zealand. Castle .Hill is so named from the peculiar character— of —the white freestone rocks of which the nearest surrounding hills are com posed. The rocks project in huge weather worn columns and pillars, like the ruins of ancient Castles. All around at a little further distance are high siioav clad mountains, from which numerous creeks and rivers take their rise, flowing in their courses over .brown coal formation, ' .o0ll oyster and mussel- shells, ',rks t- '. other curious fossils, now resting ulian 3000 feet above the sea |evel.

SMOKE HO!! [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 9 January 1892

SMOKE HO .' ?? Jack Reardon, who was shearing* at Mut tuma, was lucky enough to snap a block of c.p. land within 200 yds of the woolshed, in the horse paddock. The boss reckoned as Rear don earned the money at Muttama, he should not have selected on the run. What next? We hear, through the New South Wales press, a great deal about the big cheques which are being made in certain sheds this season by shearers. The reports, one can be easily understood, emanate from Pastora lists, who doubtless are members of the asso ciation which has recently come into exist ance ; but we do not hear anything* about the large numbers of small cheques which are earned in the same sheds. What price the following ? : — This season an average shearer has shorn 3690, for which he is paid £36 18s, out of that has to come £4 for travelling ex penses (fare only) to the different sheds ; rations, etc., £6 5s, making a total expendi ture for actual expenses of £10 5s, leaving a balance of £26 13s, which divide...

ANSWERS IN BRIEF E.H.B. : Thanks, will use. Recanvass ing ; every man to his trade ; those who have served their time are naturally the most adept. Does it fit? Quite welcome. A.F. (C'town, Tas.) : W. »J. Bennett referred to in last issue joined the A.S,U. fn 86 with Secretary Head. Bennett and Bertie Shep hard were working* on the Bland together. The latter went to Ireland and the former to Queensland in 88, and has ever since taken a X^rominent part in the labor movement. ' On Guard.': See next issue. ' Asmodous.' (Himio-immgie) : Right you are. A unionist who doesn't support the co-operative venture of his own Society, isn't much of a unionist or else doesn't understand the trouble, and if the latter is the case, somebody ought to buy him a ' i Hummer' ' and send it along, for he badly wants educating.

MATES. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 16 January 1892

MATES. i ? — Many men who want to do what is right object to Solialism because they tliink it will tend to turn -the State ii^to a tyranny and the citizens of a Socialistic State into mere machines. Seeing that the State of to-day is a tyranny of the grossest kind, and the average workman of to-day a machine which dirctly it gets out of order is flung out to rust — to starve, I cannot see that this should be a very serious objection to a change. But I do not think that Socialism will be a tyranny, or that the socialistic citizen will be a machine. On the other hand I am sure the growth of Socialism, true Socialism, will destroy tyranny and make men what men should be — mates. Yery commonly regulations to the effect that no room shall be built less than 10 feet cubic, or that no man shall go more than a week without a bath, are quoted as illustrative of what Socialism is. As a matter of fact the best and wisest regulation can only be a symptom of a socialistic tendency in a community...

BREWERS, PUBLICANS, AND SINNERS [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 16 January 1892

BREWERS, PUBLICANS, AND SINNERS Brewers, employees, butcher boys, bakers, carters, grocers' carters, and every other worker in the town should join the General Labourers' Union. At some Wagga breweries the 'truck' system is 'just as strong as in Queensland or Western Australia. The hands employed are supposed to . board at certain hotels, and the brewers pay the board bill, or, what is the same thing, allow the publicans to deduct so much from the beer account. Just how much is deducted nobody but the brewer and publican knows. If a man wishes to board at home, or anywhere but an hotel, he won't get a job at a brewery — that's certain. Consequently, if a married man with a family goes to work at a brewery he has to keep two houses on less than £2 per week of 60 hours. We know one man who pays 9s. a week rent, and gets 20s. to pay it with; that means lis. per week to keep his family on. By this rotten and iniquitous system of 'truck' those who work are thrown into j)ublichouse societ...

THAT DISMISSAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 16 January 1892

THAT DISMISSAL. The average Hospital Committee in New South Wales has huge ears, and loves thistles. At Wagga some weeks since a married woman with a child went to visit her husband, who was a patient in the hospi tal. The cook's situation being vacant at the time, and the woman having splendid refer ences as a cook applied for the situation, and was engaged at once ; the management committee knowing all about the child being with her, and all the circumstances of the case. The cook suited splendidly, but an individual employed as gardener and wards man, or some kind of flunkey who was sup posed to fill one of those positions, but gener ously undertook both for one man's pay, made a complaint about the unfortunate woman's baby. It probably had some; lollies and left a very sticky one where the wards - man, or whatever you like to call him, would sit on it. Anyhow, the complaint was in vestigated by the committee, when it was found to be trivial in the extreme, and ac cordingly dismi...

"GLAD TIDINGS"?? [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 16 January 1892

'GLAD TIDINGS'?? Generally speaking, our exchanges coine through the post in a legitimate manner, but this week we have to chronicle a new come -up. It came in the dead of night, and in a mean and contemptible way. It was found by our office boy in the passage, having found its way in under the door. It was labelled ' { Glad Tidings, ' ' and under such a title we expected to see an account of our rich uncle's demise, and that the old chap had made the ' ' Hummer' ' sole heir to his vast estates in New Guinea. But no such luck. We searched the paper throug'h and through, have put it - under a microscope, turned it upside down and downside up ; have borrowed a telescope from our next door neighbor, and looked at this midnight inter lope first through the small end, and then afar off through the large end, but up to date we have been able to discover nothing that could in any way be construed into ' ' glad tidings. ' ' In fact there are no tidings at all to speak of, beyond the bold an...

SMOKE HOI!! [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 16 January 1892

SMOKE HOn Dear ' Hummer, ' ' ' Truth' (save the mark) in last issue does its lying best to bolster up the Great Ameri can Republic. It devotes many words and much declamation in attempting' to prove to its more or less flat-headed readers how su perior the shoddy tariff- ridden Republic is to any other country. If ' Truth' is Truth it must know that America is anything' but a paradise for the worker, with long* hours, wretched pay, corrupt judges, convict leasing system, rings, ironclad oaths, &c., &c. I ' - Truth' ' ought to change its name to vsay 'Untruth,' and then its lying, state ments and contemptible libel on the Ameri can workman would be .more generally understood. Anyway ' Truth' is mighty — weak. Yours, &c., FIREBRAND. Don't we wish we lived at Tunbridge Wells (Eng.)

CORRESPONDENCE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 16 January 1892

CORRESPONDENCE. TO THE EDITOR. Sir, — - * Very sorry to take exception to any ar ticle of yours, but the suggestion thrown out in your notes headed ' Pastoralists' Review' re co-operative contracts is one I cannot allow to pass unchallenged. The whole .system of contracting is rotten, root and branch, and is based on the sys tem of giving the work to those who will undercut their fellows in the labor market ; no matter how much you gild the title it eventually means the same. I will not dilate upon the present system ; we know what it is. But your remedy is not a dashed bit better, as the competition and eventual cutting of prices and wages still remains. Try again Mr ' Hummer' and strike at the root- — competition — and don't bother about ? the branches — the contractor ; they will die out alright once you introduce the true sys-' tem of co-operation — direct State employ ment. Yours, &c., HYPHEN. Bourke, Jan. 6, 1892. [What was meant by the advise to co operatively take co...

Our fathers from old Britain's coast, Came sailing* o'er the sea, Their loudest and their proudest boast, Was ' ' Britons aye are free ; ' But, when they breathed Australian air, Another song they sang. The forests and the valleys fair, With this assertion rang. ' Australia must be free' And we repeat the lay, Confirming their decree, With a Hip Hip Hooray. No stain of blood our charter shows, No marks of widow's tears, But drops of sweat from dewy brows, Of toiling pioneers. Peace, Progress, and Prosperity, . Have blessed our land thus far. We pray in all sincerity, - Avaunt the woe of war. The Brotherhood of Man, The order of the ...
