Smithsonian Funniosities. [Newspaper Article] — People — 27 July 1901
Smithsonian Fun- niosities. , Sam Smith, ML. A., is a man who takes himself too seriously, which is probably the reason he made himself ridiculous at tbe Syd ney Labor Counoil meeting re the election of factory inspectors. Mr. Smith has been chairman of the of a newspaper company which provided that the share- - holders should elect their editor! Seamen, wharf-laborers, and all classes of trades and callings were considered a competent body to find the editor of a diily newspaper, but Samuel holds that a tailor is not competent to vote upon the election of a factory inspector, who must have a knowledge of machinery. On top of this Mr. Smith again takes the floor to point out that when (say) the iron trade workers wish to strike they shall submit their case to an agglomeration of unionists and seamen, laborers, printers, tailors, etc. Mr. Smith should cultivate some thing approaching consistency. It is right that a b )dy of men shonld consult other bodies of men with refe ence to ind...

KERNELS. [Newspaper Article] — People — 3 August 1901
KERNELS. j The- Sydney C^talif* press n fnses to insert advertisements warn ing workers to keep away from plaoes where strikes are on. ' No class interests,' says the press. Of course not, only the Socialists are narrow and intolerant.. We want broadness, so we can beBmsshed and pulverised all the time, and so the freaks and frauds will remain on top. Hordern is said to be (rnxious about the workers in his facories, and his anxiety is said to be due to the fao that he can't find room for the goods they are turning out. If room cannot be^found, and if the goods do not sell, Hordern threat ens to close ; the works until the snrplns goods are disp9sed of. Here's Capitalism in a nutshell. Organised, concentrated industry, owned by one man, who has in his hands the living of . an. army of workers — workers who produce all the wares he sells, yet own none of them. Could not the people, throngh its elected Gov., run such a business better than Hordern ? Australian workers, watch the Federa...

FAMINE IN ITALY. | So many people of Pnglia (Italy X are in want, that there is talk of be ginning a public distribution of food. In spite of the constant, prayers of the priests for rain, the long drought continues with terrible c -nsequences for the ' farmers . and laborers.

What Shall Be Done With Mr. Ready? [Newspaper Article] — People — 3 August 1901
What Shall Be Done With Mr. Ready? Mb. Ready is said to be the dele gate of the Press *rs Union- When the meeting to form the Tailoresses' meeting was in full swing, v'r. Rea dy mounted th * platform, and, after having unsuccessfully endeavonred t'» delay — and therefore to tnwan — the object of meeting, -SBumed the role of speaoial pleader for the fir ' j of Wright and Co. The event in whioh Mr. Ready figured bo con spicuously is recorded elsewhere, as is also the grandly prompt and unanimous mauner in whioh the women and girls expressed their disgust for such an attitude assum ed by an alleged rep- esentative of a trade-nni. n. If Mr Ready is really the Prasser-.' delegate, the only decent thing that uni m can now do is to lift, him from his offi cial position and at the some time compel him to tender to the Tailor esses' Union an ample apology fo his ill-directed ? efforts. If -1 r. Ready had b en a s raignt-goer, it's hardl r likely that Mr. Wright , would have commissioned him ...

Gov. Wants a Fortnight's Credit. [Newspaper Article] — People — 3 August 1901
Gov. U ants a Fortnight's Credit. Tab following letters are in teresting showing, as they no the See Government attitude on the question of paying the State em ployees' wages weekly : Wallis.street, Woolhara. To the Hon. E. W. O'Sullivan, Minister Publio Works,' Sir. — Since the initiation of the day labor system it haa been the custom of the Publio Works Department to pay stonemasons once a fortnight, instead of weekly, the custom of the trado for the pasfr twenty-five years, and in di rect opposition to the rule of the Union, which reads thus : ' Wages must be paid in full once every week.' The violation of this old custom of the trade, and rule of the Union, by the Public Works Department may be used by the contractors to force the system on their employees. I bring this under your notice, believing you will give it due consideration, and, if possible, prevent the Publio Works Department breaking down an old custom of the trade — weekly payment of wages. Those of ub whA are not I...
