FERGUSON. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 18 August 1910
+++++++♦ FERGUSON. THE record of political apostacy in Australia contains many strange examples of mental perversion, but surely the case of W. J. Ferguson is unique. Charged in 1S92 with 'conspiring' to assist his mates to better conditions, leg ironed and dragged hundreds of miles to meet a prejudiced jury, sentenced to un deserved imprisonment, he stanas to-aay as the defender of conspiracy laws and the apologist for leg-irons! , The Labor Party showed excellent judgment when a year or so ago they denied him .'-a Labor nomination. Men of his class find their proper places., in the ranks of the'Coer cionists. All the same, we're sorry for Ferguson; he could have done so' much better: Also, we are sorry for 'the Coer cionists if they expect any political gain from the presence'of this 'queer political specimen on their ' platforms!*' JThe' public does not like 'to see 'men lick their chains.

DEALING WITH A PIMP. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 18 August 1910
DEALING WITH A PIMP. There is in- America an institution known as the Pinkertoh Detective Agency, which undertakes to provide employers with news of the proceedings at Union meetings, so that Union men, who are doing their best to better the conditions of their fellows, may be victimised; the agency is also active in supplying strike breakers, and does a deal of other dirty work. -(Veil, the. agency' has to get some workr/en to act as pimps' and spies to betrar their mates, and shameful as it is there are such workmen in plenty. Now and rfgain the Union men l'ecognise them,' and (hen there is something doing. The. ' MiAers' Magazine,' of Denver, U.S.A., rep/rts such a case in its issue of July Y At a meeting of. the Bingham Miners' Union, Utah, one A. W.

RACING DOOMED IN NEW YORK. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 18 August 1910
RACING DOOMED IN NEW YORK. The new Betting and Gaming Act laws come into vogue in New York next month, when all betting on racecourses and in shops will be illegal and entail heavy fines or imprisonment. The New York correspondent, writing to the London 'Sportsman,' and referring to the Act, says: — 'It is possible its constitutionality can be successfully attacked on the ground that it is a gross infringement ot the liberties of the citizens, but in any case we are face to face with another period of unrest. It is possible that our wealthy owners will again invade Eng land and France, and that the local tracks will be cut up for building— then farewell to respectable sport in New York and un told loss and inconvenience will fall upon thousands of the inhabitants. And as to the abolition of betting — nothing could be more nonsensical. During the past winter we had disreputable Marathons, and news papers which decried racing smugly quoting the odds; in every fair grounds in the State...
TAXING THE STAKES. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 18 August 1910
TAXING THE STAKES. In the English House of Commons last month, Mr. Horatio Bottomley, M.P. for South Hackney, brought forward certain proposals for new taxation, including taxation of racing stakes, the State licen sing of racecourses, the licensing of book makers, and the taxing of betting trans actions. When asked by an interviewer what his object was in making these pro posals, and what he expected to accom plish, supposing they were adopted, he replied: — 'My object is twofold. First, I wish this country to follow the example of France and Germany, and secure a large revenue for the State; and secondly, I desire to place racing and betting upon a more satisfactory basis than is at pre sent the case. Look what France does. At present it derives several millions ster ling a year, of which the poor and the hospitals get a large proportion, and a substantial sum goes to the encourage ment of horse-breeding. The result is that legitimate betting transactions are looked upon in that c...

The latest arrival, however, Is Master Soult, the champion from, the land of the moa. Speaking of him just before he left, a New Zealand writer said: — 'A very pleasing incident to be chronicled in connection with the winter season is that Master Soult, who can , be termed the main hope of New Zea-; land at the present juncture, is carrying himself .in a manner serving to invest the opening of his five-year-old career with a most promising aspect.

JOHNNY HIGGERSON. Last week The: Worker gave an ac count of the famous match between Vene and Alice Hawthorne, the former being: ridden by the late Johnny Higgerson. It; might interest our x-eaders to. know that' Mr. Higgerson reached the age of 95 years,' and died through the result of a gun accident on May .28, 1905. Higgerson was a hale, sprightly, old fellow for his years right up to the time of his death, and was always ready to talk of his experiences1 and reminiscences. For many years prior, to his death the old chap resided in the, vicinity of Bottle Forest, near Heathcote,; Sydney, on the old road to Illawarra, fill ing the position of ranger on the National Park.
