THIRTY BOB A WEEK. . ;? -- Before the Country Shop Assistants' Wages Board at Mudgee, Win* Kiellett, of the firm. of W. Kellett -and- -Sons, stated that as a drapery assistant lie started at half -a-crown a week, and was eight or nine years at the business before he re ceived £3 per week. -He considered £2 per. week a fair minimum for shop assis tants and 30s. for storemen. His storo man was working for that amount, and was a married man. He did not believe in Wages Boards. The employer should be left to arrange a reasonable wage with his employees. He declined to say whe ther the profits of his business would permit him to pay the claim. Further, William foi-got to add that he would not care to revert to 30, bob a week,' or even two quid, on which to keep himself, wife, and family. ?

CAPITALISTIC TRADES UNIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 18 August 1910

CAPITALISTIC TRADES UNIONS. The kings of commerce are the greatest trade unionists in the world. Their union operates, moreover, in the cruellest, of manners, because by banding together they control the markets of the world in the' food and clothing of the nations of the world. Just at present the shipping companies of all nations are greatly per turbed over the action of the Nord deutscher Lloyd in reducing its fares to ana irom jljuiiuuw emu. -jj whwj . **- ? cussing the matter, 'Lloyd's Weekly' says:_'In agreements between rival steamship companies it is not unusual for companies whose fleets are placed in- a somewhat disadvantageous position to be allowed to charge a differential rate. The Nord-deutscher Lloyd, desirous of quoting such a differential rate, have, we under stand, . approached the British lines con cerned, but without arriving at an agree ment of the kind indicated. It does not, of cour.se, follow that a disastrous^ rate war will ensue. As 'the ' cut ' will not co...

£2000 AWAITING APPLICANTS [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 18 August 1910

£2000 AWAITING APPLICANTS ? It is surer than a mining investment, and it is even more profitable than dairy farming. A ticket in the Eight-Hour Art. .Union may win one. of the 300 prizes, valued in all at ' £ 2000. The' first prize, would make a nice little -windfall, con sidering it is valued at £500, and that is the sum which last year Mrs. J. Sawdy, of North. Bqndi, Sydney, was able to bank after she disposed of the first prize. When one remembers that this is to be had again for the same small outlay it gives the prospect of a fairly rich return to some fortunate investor. It may be jrour luck this time. Get a ticket at once. Don't delay, as only a limited number can b« sold. A reference to our advertising columns will give all particulars. Recently, aboard H.M.S. Powerful, at Sydney, a lieutenant of H.M.S. PegasuU was court-martialled on a charge of drunkenness during that cruiser's recent visit to Fiji.

WADE'S SOP TO THE CLERKS. INTRODUCES HIS CLERICAL WORKERS' BILL. The Bill Regarded as Worthless. 'The Clerical Workers' Bill ' was In* '' troduced to the N.S.W. Legislative Assem bly by Premier Wade on Monday, who, in his speech on the second reading, endea-. vored to justify special legislation for clerks as distinguished from other work ers. The Premier dealt with the differ ence between manual and clerical labor. remarking that in the former the workers were practically on a level, whilst a clerk's value could probably be only accurately gauged by. the man who employed him. The bill would fix a minimum living wage, and appoint a board to grade the various classes in the particular institutions, and assign in each grade a minimum wage. Where grading was impossible it would not be attempted. Mr. McGowen criticised the proposal from the point of view- that it was 'never necessary. The Premier had shown no reason why clerks should not be brought under the Industrial Disputes Act. The...

GLEBE ISLAND TROUBLES. FIRM ATTITUDE OF THE MEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 18 August 1910

ULh^t ISLAND SHUUiJU. ' FIRM ATTITUDE OF THE MEN. Up to the time The Worker went to press there had been no settlement of. the trouble regarding the slaughtermen at Glebe Island, although the employers had backed down and made overtures of a more liberal nature than those for which they were prepared at the conference, but still far short of what the men considered to be a fair thing. The position was freely and accurately explained in last weeii s Worker, and beyond the fact that nego tiations towards a settlement have failed there is little to record. It is noteworthy, however, that the capitalistic press is bit te-tly bewailing the fact that a country business, the Riverstone Meat Works, is supplying the retail shops with meat. In the eyes of the capitalistic journal, it is a dreadful thing that this should occur, notwithstanding the devoutly expressed hope that the public shall not be short of its daily meat. A few retailers have taken advantage o£ the trouble, and have in creas...

Like a badly fit ting door the bending or straightening of the leg or arm, or the part affected moves with a jar, so excruciatingly painful that ? it is only a matter of time before the joints become fixed. Bathing, friction, oils, liniments, and ointments have in thousands of cases proved utterly una vailing.

. SHOCKING EVIDENCE AT AN INQUEST. At Newcastle an inquiry was held into the circumstances surrounding the death of an infant named Robert Butler, five months old. The evidence showed that the parents were camped in a humpy in a reserve at North Carrington. Neighbors found the child in a deplorable state, and urged its immediate removal to tne nos pital. It is alleged that the pajents re fused to carry out this suggestion of the neighbors, who practically seized the in fant for humanity's sake, and, after wash ing and dressing it, took it to the hospital. Dr. Arnold said that the child was in 3 shockingly emaciated state, and weighed only 51bs. Is normal weight should have been 121bs. In his opinion, and in that. of Dr. John Harris, it had died from .neglect and want of nourishment.

A SAVAGE BULLDOG: A prize bulldog snapped his chain in a yard at Clifton Hill, Melbourne, jumped the fence, and fastened on to the foreleg of a horse attached to a phaeton driven by E. J. Merchant. The horse shook the dog off, and one of the wheels passed over it, but it again attacked the horse, which bolted half a mile. The dog, which had also attacked Merchant in the phae ton, followed, and when the horse pulled up it fastened on to its shoulder. The aid of workmen with laths and iron bars. had to be secured before the savage animal could be persuaded to leave go. The horse was badly injured.
