UNREST IN GREAT BRITAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 8 March 1919
UNREST IN GREAT BRITAIN. ' The industrial upheaval expected in England has been 'temporarily postponed, as the miners, railway men, and trans port workers, forming- the 'triple- alli ance,' have decided to wait the outcome of the Government-arranged National Conference 'between employers, employees, and the governing authorities themselves, It is safe to say that unless very substan tial concessions ace agreed to by the em ployers and the Government the strike will not be abandoned, but only delayed. The one fact which emerges plainly from the welter of conflicting cable mes sages and conflicts is the universal dis trust of present-day rulers and their promises The resolve of the European peoples to really rule themselves through their own institutions and to abandon the capitalist forms of government, founded upon pre tence, jugglery, false promises, and bluff, is spreading like a bush fire, and none can foretell the extent of the conflagration,' or how many cherished institutions ...
INTERVENTION IN RUSSIA. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 8 March 1919
INTERVENTION IN RUSSIA. The position in Russia is most extra ordinary. While most of the Allies have decided that active intervention to 're- store order' -is a bigger task than they dare to tackle, yet apparently some of them, are continuing- to invade Russian territory and slaughter, the Russian troops, although no ? formal ' declaration of -war has ever been made. America and Japan appear to have withdrawn their troops, but the French and British forces remain, with some others. Esthonia and Finland appear also to be mixed up with the hostilites in Russia, and the Czecho-Slovaks, who got ma rooned somewhere in Siberia months ago, do not appear to have cut their way back to Europe as yet The alleged atrocities of the Russian Bolshevik Government are still being served up to us in ever-increasing doses by the daily' cabtegrammer, but are so contradictory that they are obviously largely faked. To the extent which slaughter is actually taking place it' is ?eyfdejiijy .bejng ? increas...
THE REVOLUTION IN GERMANY. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 8 March 1919
THE REVOLUTION IN GERMANY. The cables continue to give us alarm ing accounts of revolution and civil war in Germany, following on the assassina tion of the Bavarian President, Eisner. They also contain harrowing accounts of the sufferings of the German women and children, due to lack of sufficient food for several years. The Spartacusian or Bolshevik prin ciples appear to be spreading throughout Germany and rapidly replacing the old bourgeois order of society. The future of that unhappy land is still shrouded in grim uncertainty.

IRISH INDEPENDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 8 March 1919
IRISH INDEPENDENCE. The Irish envoys who are standing for the right of self-determination have reached Paris, . and, having declared their independence from Great Britain, as the American colonies did nearly 140 years ago, they naturally want President Wilsin to back them up in the same action as .'his own forefathers took at that time. This will put the acid test on' some of Wilson's ideals, and as a break with Britain, on the one hand, or the rejec-1 tion of Ireland's demands, on the other, makes the two horns of a beautiful dilem ma, he will probably find it more comfort able to sit between them.

THE WAR AND AFTER THE RUSSIAN REVOLUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 8 March 1919
^TH^MS^WTOR THE RUSSIAN REVOLUTION. ; The famous Russian novelist, -Maxim Gorky, has been so often reported to - be ' slain by tire Bolsheviks that an American .' cartoon depicted him as a bored spectator of his own funeral. The Reports of his death are evidently grossly exaggerated, as Arthur Ran some has announced that the great author, as a protest against the attempted assassination of Lenin, has token service in the . Soviet Government ? Literary, Publication Department^ which i,s issuing Russian classics at cost price. Of Kropotkin, reported dead, we havje , heard no more; but another 'victim,'' Madame Breshkovsky, has died in her bed at sin advanced age, and has been buried in honor by the Government. ; ♦ ? ? In Ireland, William O'Brien, president of the Irish Labor Party, claims that his . . ,intimate friend, James Connolly, was, by his writing and life, a considerable force .in Russia; and it is interesting to observe that 'A.E.' ' (George) Russell has joined himself to the...
A WASTEFUL ACT OF FOLLY. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 8 March 1919
A WASTEFUL ACT OF FOLLY. The stupid and sinful proposal to sink the German warships in. mid-ocean has resulted in strong protests from America, France, and elsewhere. As even the smallest war-vessel con tains thousands of pounds' worth of valu able metals used in construction and fittings, and as metals don't grow again like vegetables, how such an idiotic pro posal could ever have been seriously en tertained by anyone outside of a lunatic asylum is difficult to comprehend. To avoid jealousy over the division is urged as a reason for their destruction, but if the nations can agree to. cut up, three continents - between them, why quarrel over the floating ironmongery?

JEWS AND ARABS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 8 March 1919
JEWS AND ARABS. The picturesque promise to make Pales tine a free, self-governing 'Jewish State is apparently being modified to suit the prejudices of the Arabs, who claim a possessory title of some two or throe thousand years, during most of which time the Jews have been carrying 'Matilda' all over the earth, and, th^ie fore, had lost the title-deeds to their o\3 selection. ^
MODERN REVOLUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 8 March 1919
MODERN REVOLUTION. In the past the people fought for politi cal liberty. Political liberty was the first step necessary to secure economic liberty. To secure political liberty the use of force was necessary. When the people fought they used'bullets, because they had no ballots. The twentieth century faces a different sort of revolution. A revolution of ballots rather than bullets. A revolution in which education plays the leading role. A re volution which takes place primarily in the minds of the people. Force, as a means of making revolutions, is an antiquated weapon. With the power of the ballot, the people 'can- destroy anything that injures them. ; If the Government is bad, they can change i it.' If the system is wrong, they can de ;. stroy it and replace it with a better sys '. tern more in accordance with the people's needs and desires. The power of educa tion is at -work creating a revolution In ' the minds of the people that will accom plish mightier and more far-reaching re...
THE PEACE CONFERENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 8 March 1919
THE PEACE CONFERENCE. While President Wilson is back in Ame rica seeking the endorsement of his ideals, the Peace Conference seems to be justi fying its name by proposals for dismem bering its enemies and scrambling for the pieces Turkey is to be cut up . and largely smothered in Greece, while one minor wing is to be permitted to flutter in Asia Minor. The new nation, with the' clumsy name of. Jugo?Slavia,. is talking ^fight *ven...b.e fore it gets christened, and is nearly, at war with Italy as to which shall own the old Austrian sid/e of the Adriatic- Sea. ? ?. The'' new republics of Ukraine and'-Po'-v land are actually fighting over the terri-' tory which shall be included within their respective boundaries. Poland is also doing a side-line with Germany over disputed territory which, contains so many of both nationalities that every fresh settlement leaves things more unsettled than ever.

INDUSTRIAL CAPITALISM. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 8 March 1919
INDUSTRIAL CAPITALISM. t; Just as our present industrial system jgwas inevitable, having its source in. and springing from Feudalism which it de stroyed, so our present form of society from its inception carried the germ of its own destruction by creating a propertiless class -whose historic mission is to destroy it -and inaugurate the new society. ?;;., ?.-. . ..§ _.-?' .'? * ^ ? ? .- Industrial capitalism has been forced by its very nature to keep on expanding. Ow ing to the necessity of its expansion it has exploited all pa'rts of the world, forc ing barbarians and savages to come under its sway. ? # # Starting on the basis of individual capi talism, the world-wide nature of its ex pansion has compelled the formation of trusts and combines until to-day we have amalgamation of capital in all the produc tive and transportation industries. The in dividual capitalist is a mere parasite, .the industries being oferried on by paid em ployees from the managers to the office boy or unskil...

THE STATE GOVERNOR AND HIS SALARY. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 8 March 1919
THE STATE GOVERNOR AND HIS SALARY. Rumors were plentiful last week that Sir Walter Davidson, the State Governor, had approached the Ministry for an in crease in his salary, or his allowance. These rumors remained uncontradicted for a week, during which time Ministers had 'a. chance to gauge public opinion. Finding that even the Tory press was afraid to say a good word for such a scan dalous proposal, Ministers now come out with a belated and obviously cockand bull yarn to the effect that, as Lord Jel licoe and his family were soon coining out to camp with him, the Governor required a ritew doormat, a stretcher, mosquito net, and a few other things with which to doll up his old humpy for the visitors. Of course, this won't cost more than two or three thousands, and even the man who camps under a gum-tree won't grudge paying his whack towards en tertaining these gilded paupers. The Labor Platform has, for many years, contained a plank for the abolition of the office of State Governor,...

EDITORIAL WAR SETTLEMENT AND PEACE PROBLEMS. j THE TREATMENT OF AUSTRALIAN SOLDIERS. ' Ever since the sick and wounded sol diers from oyerseas commenced to re turn to Australia there has been muddle ittJid mismanagement, both in the process of getting them home and In dealing with 'them when they arrive. Now that the war is over, and the men, »bolh sick and we'll, are returning in large numbers, the muddle and mismanage ment- become worse and worse, and 'the t)ust grievances of the men have grown 'from mere incidents into an intolerable ?scandal. \ It may be admitted that criticism and : ' sfault-findlng are easy, and that in an en ?tirely new undertaking the lack of expert - lence '-cauB.es mistakes and blunders to occur It may ajso be urged that the existence of the pneumonic-influenza epidemic, more or less throughout the world, ren flers the task of repatriation more diffi cult owing to the operation of quaran tine laws. «, ; ' .

Woodrow. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 8 March 1919
Woodrow. The greatest since Christ; what means this message vague? Hast a reformer, born of necessity, Arisen from the ashes of War's vile plague To set the nations free? Oh, grant that he will not his power abuse, And prove a frost like little Billy Hughes. He, maybe, holds the world's fate in his hands, And dominates with his iron will The chosen brains of all the other lands, And bids disturbing elements be still. E'en little Bill, with all his trickster's wiles, » He cautions off the green Pacific Isles, 'Thou shalt not steal,' the Nazarene once said; And Wilson now repeats the great com mand, Though narrow minds may count our mil lions dead As payment for a paltry strip of land. For they hold life the cheapest of the cheap, So- they the purloined territory may keep. In all good faith we entered on the fight, To help, to succor, and protect the weak; Their prestige now is on the side of might. Commercial grab the goal our leaders seek. As tollers we repudiate their aim, And stil...
THE PUBLIC SERVICE BOARD SCANDAL. To the Editor, "Labor News." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 8 March 1919
THE PUBLIC SERVICE BOARD SCANBAL. To the Editor, 'Labor News.'

A ? jmu? ? _*? ? ? ? t ? . ? ? .sTs ? i__ grave miierence or opinion was suaaeniy discerned within the ranks of the National Party itself, and the Government pock eted its honor, if it ever had a vestige of any, and to - save its skin with drew the bill. Two members of the Board tendered their resignations and one re fused to do so. That one, Mr. J. M. Tay lor, has now been suspended from office. What the members of the service want to know is. what has Mr. Taylor done to deserve this treatment? We are informed that the report made by Commissioner Allard compelled the Government to take such action. If that is so, was it not equally encumbent upon the Government to press on with the bill that was with drawn? It looks very much...
