"Where Can I Get a House?" [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 8 March 1919

'Where Can I Get a House?' A dozen times a day the above ques tion may be heard. And you cannot an swer it. There is an undoubted scarcity. Something must be done, and that soon if the already shocking overcrowding is not to be augmented. The responsibility rests with the Government. If the in fluenza epidemic did really come' into our midst the existing state of affairs would be a grave menace to the health of the community. What is the cause of the shortage? is asked. It certainly Is not due to any increase in wages. .Any builder will give you the answer.. It is this: The price of building materials — owing to the war, of course, so we are told — has risen to an extortionate figure, and the building of houses is not con sidered sufficiently profitable. If the Government will not step in and do something to relieve the situation, then the Labor aldermen in the City Council ought to give the matter their careful and early attention. VERITAS.

PEACE PRODUCTION AND WAR DEBTS. To the Editor, "Labor News." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 8 March 1919

PEACE PRODUCTION AND WAR DEBTS. To the Editor, 'Labor News.' Sir, — The troublous times of maturing peace, are looming ahead, and we have to grapple with the difficulties of the rela tions of Capital and Labor when applied to the production of the wealth necessary to discharge our heavy liabilities. (Vide 'S.M.H.,' 3/3/-19.) This state of affairs is evident the wide world over — almost every country has these heavy liabilities to discharge — then to whom are they liable? If to each ottter, then it is only a matter of adjustment, and will not be very irk-' some to each as a nation; it is when we come to individuals that the boot will pinch, and those who have derived the least monetary benefit during the war have the heaviest liability to discharge, because they had little to lend but have a lot to repay. Digest that. But why all this concern about troublous times? Will the world produce less Of the good things of life now that the war is over .than during the last four years — now t...

(To the Editor, "The Labor News.") [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 8 March 1919

(To the Editor, 'The Labor News.') -. Sir, — Wheels within wheels! The Labor 1$ Movement is becoming a veritable clock ' -i full of them, save that, instead of them all i turning in harmony'1 for an ultimate com- 'j niqn purpose, they are turning, or at- ';;.,' tempting to turn, against one another' to -I their ultimate detriment or destruction.

Correspondence. THE "HERALD'S" HONESTY TO ITS COUNTRY READERS. (To the Editor, "The Labor News.") [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 8 March 1919

Correspondence. THE 'HERALD'S' HONESTY TO ITS COUNTRY READERS. (To the Editor, 'The Labor .News.') Sir, — When- the muzzle act came into being, and the boob papers were frighten ing the lives out of their readers (or, at least, trying to), I wrote to the 'Herald,' pointing out the value of blue-gum leaves as a disinfectant. I took it from the 'Lancet' (a paper supposed to know something about medicine). This is what the 'Lancet' had to say: 'Blue gum is Nature's own and most perfect „ disin fectant. .Steam from it should be inhaled,, its infusion drunk, and green leaves placed in a room make it sweec.' The 'Lancet' writer finished by saying that a farmer in New Zealand cured several cases of diphtheria, including influenza, whilst others, attended by a doctor, died. So, enough said- Time and space are pre cious. JNO. MURRAY.

CONDITION OF ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 8 March 1919

CONDITION OF ENGLAND. The fact that almost one-fourth of the population of the British Isles live on the Verge of starvation has been frequently emphasised by public men, since the day that Prime Minister Campbell Bannerman first made the terrible indictment— but it would appear that conditions are even worse since the war. From a recent 'New Statesman' we learn that 'the wealthy are to-day wealthier than ever,' and another London publication, 'The Round Table,' prints the following: — ? : 'To-day we have whole classes living in a state which offends the awakened pub lic conscience. Institutions purporting to be free must be judged by something more than their flowers and leaves; where the fruits of justice and good living fail, it is time to look to the roots.' Conditions must be fairly rotten for a change, when such paragraphs as these find their way into publications of this class. It would indeed appear that the time is long overdue for a determined: at tempt to be made to get d...

THE PET MONOPOLIST. To the Editor, "Labor News." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 8 March 1919

THE PET MONOPOLIST. To the Editor, 'Labor News.' Sir, — I would like an opportunity to ad dress a few words to the supporters of the Labor Party with respect to the £5000 exemption in the land tax. I am not writing in any unfriendly spirit. It is my purpose to try to show that the platform as at present put forward by the Party contains a very peculiar and unsatisfac tory anomaly. I have never been able to understand the almost fanatical zeal with which the Party insists that the man who has. £5000 worth of land should be exempt from land value taxation. It was actually stated at one Annual Conference that such a person was regarded as being a 'poor' man. I do not know what your readers think about it, but I have often said I would not mind being poor myself in that way. Probably the average reader of the 'Labor News,' who owns no land at all, would be in danger of a severe attack of swelled head if some body bequeathed him £5000 worth of land. Why should this particular monopolist ...

THE ABOLITION OF THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. (To the Editor, "The Labor News.") [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 8 March 1919

THE ABOLITION OF THE LEGISLA TIVE COUNCIL. (To the Editor, 'The Labor News.') Sir, — I read with great interest your article on the above in last week's issue af 'The Labor News.' You placed the matter so lucidly before your readers that me cannot but be struck with the idea that our politicians in the past have not attempted to seriously grapple with the problem. If Labor makes the abolition of the Council a slogan cry at election time, then, when the people realise' that we intend making a genuine effort to get rid of the 'die hards,' they will rally to our banner, and enthusiastically cheer us on.

The League of Nations. : A League of Nations to preserve pe&.ce is a noble aspiration, but the door of such a League should be opened wide to = Admit every nation on equal terms.

BOXING. COOK MAKES GOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 8 March 1919

BOXING. COOK MAKES GOOD. Al Lloyd had a rough time in^defend ing the heavyweight championship . of Australia against the much-improved George Cook, at the Stadium last. Satur day. ? Cook fo.-ced matters from the word go, and soon c' aimed the popularity of -the crowd, who cheered him wildly when, in the third round, with a swinging left and right, he put Lloyd through the ropes, where the title -holder was down fSr five. In the succeeding sessions Cook continued to smash away merrily, breaking through his more skilful opponent's defence, and landing solidly on the body and head. In the twelfth, Cook almost had the verdict. Fiercely attacking, he 'swung a^ heavy right to the point,, and Lloyd went down for eight.-. . He was down again for two just before the gong, and it was a very shaky champion that 'staggered 'to the corner. Lloyd boxed carefully in the ttiirteentnt ?£§.& easily gained points for that round. The finish came in the four teenth. After a sharp rally, Lloyd su...

(3) Never read any but what you like. — Emerson. dfr 4» 46 Have you knowledge? Apply it. Have you not? Confess your ignorance. This is true wisdom. — Pagan Philosophy. ? * « The purpose of good reading is to bring sunshine into our hearts, and to drive moonshine out of our heads. — John Mor ley. ? ? ? As regards reading; to require that a man shall retain everything he has ever read, is like asking him to carry about with him all that he has ever eaten. — Schopenhauer. ? ? . ? ? The body assimilates only that which is like it; and so a man retains in his mind only that which Interests him. — Schopenhauer. . ? ? ? ? If a man wants to read good books, he must make a point of avoiding bad ones; for life is short, and time and energy limited. — Schopenhauer. ..?.-?.??? ?
