MUTINIES IN BRITISH ARMY. (The "Sun's" Special Representative.) "LONDON, January 8. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 15 March 1919

MUTINIES IN BRITISH ARMY. (The 'Sun's' Special Representative.) 'LONDON, January 8. 'Australian soldiers will scarcely believe that the British Tommy has mutinied. Yet mutinies there are — many of them, flagrant, menacing, irresistible. The ugly word is whispered about the City of Lon don, printed with marks of interrogation and wdnder in Conservative newspapers, shouted with anger across the Army Coun cil table. 'Men at the Boulogne and Havre camps have broken ranks and 'demonstrated' against being sent to their units. At Folkestone 10,000 men took possession of the town, picketed the quays, and held up the leave boats for two days. Whitehall is daily filled with soldiers, who, with in vincible organisation, give orders to their generals. 'General Sir William Robertson, as Chief of the Home Command, had to see a privates1 deputation to-day— and gave in. The War Office has given in all along the line. Not one demonstration has failed to win.

Searchlights Holman's Notion. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 15 March 1919

fUm \mPmt ?f.Holman's Notion. j In 'Willie Holman's opinion there is far too much criticism about. It is certainly (very inconvenient to have the public al !ways poking its nose into its own affairs. Far better leave them to Willie. He knows how to turn them to the very best- ad vantage. Holman's ideal of the perfect State is a place where. all the people are deaf, dumb and blind, but capable of pay ling an infinite amount of taxation.

THAT 30/- MINIMUM WAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 15 March 1919

THAT 30/- MINIMUM WAGE. I was disgusted when I read that the/ Board of Trade had granted 30/- only as v a minimum wage for adult women, and although meetings of protest have been held, yet the people as a whole seem to go blindly along. I wonder how the wives '*1 and daughters of eozne of our city mag- 3 nates would like to try and exist on that1 *J wage?- . ?£ It must be remembered that many of | these women have to entirely support ' C| themselves in board and lodgings, rent, 3 laundry, tram fares, etc., and when wo ^ consider the many socially-created desires J and wants that girls and women, have ?*! with no honest means of gratfylng them, $£ it is at least some excuse for the existence % of prostitution. /* How with such low wages and the high **' prices ruling to-day is, a girl to furnish '*J herself with decent necessities?

Correspondence. = * fV: i -%'?'; .? THE FEDERAL CAPITAL AND A, PROMISED RAILWAY LINE. Sir,— The Federal Labor Government was actuated by far-sighted statesman ship when it proclaimed Yass-Canberra the , site of the Federal capital. It was generally recognised by those who have some knowledge of the members of the Nationalist party that if ever again they were returned to power a cessation of activities in the building and develop ing of the capital would mark the event. They have been returned to power, and the capital is now a modern Babyjon, a Ziklag in ruins. Careless waste of public money has been the outstanding feature of the ad ministration of the Nationalist Govern ments. Of the natural inabilities and shortcomings of the political misfits in the Federal Parliament I shall have no thing to say. but I shall not further brook delay in taking them to task for their disregard for the promises they made rele vant to the building of the capital and the construction of the railway ...

THE FALLACY OF A LIVING WAGE ON A MONETARY BASIS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 15 March 1919

THE FALLACY OF A. LIVING WAGE ON A MONETARY BASIS. Surely the degrading and humiliating methods oised by that capitalistic institu tion, the Board of Trade, to discover just, how much it takes fo.r women workers to keep bpdy and soul together, and the equally degrading and humiliating result of its labors ('thirty shillings per week') in these days of extortionate prices, for the daughters of the workers to live on, must prove to the dullest intellect the utter uselessness of such methods to ob tain anything approaching economic justice for the toilers. The wljole system — Board of Trade . Inquiry, Wages Boards or Arbitration Courts — is rotten from the wage earners' standpoint, and should long ago have been thrown on the scrap heap of exploded fallacies. lit to-day the wage is adequate for a decent existence, to morrow it ceases to be so. . Immediately, the workers get an increase in their wages the manufacturers and profiteering mid dlemen put up the prices of the necessities of l...

'If our preoccupied Government cannot attend to this, let it instantly, create a Ministry of Courtesy.'— Cable. Thanks? Gratitude? The idea! The 'Morning Post' seems t-5 have over looked the fact, that the war is over, and that the overseas men are not so vitally important as they were.

TIRED AND DISILLUSIONED. 'The rising of the soldier is infinitely to be regrettefl. It has weakened seriously and suddenly the British Empire's posi tion at the Peace Conference. For what do other Allies say? 'Britain must make a quick peace and demobilise; her army is in a . bad way — probably it would not fight again.' ~N 'The War Cabinet does not deny this grave weakening. It is compelled to seek now the earliest, possible demobilisation, and any thoughts it had about moving immediately towards the key to a settled Europe — Russia — have gone. Even Lloyd George could, not fight an unpopular war in Russia. 'The army is tired.'

Ore-Buying. III. OVERSEA MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 15 March 1919

Ore-Buying. ; lit .; ? ( ? ? . ? ^ OVERSEA MARKETS. The difference between prices of wol fram and bismuth in Australian and over sea markets is astonishing. In both these metals the middleman manages to grab oh an. average about 100 per cent, for transporting and handling, etc. Firstly, take wolfram. During the early stages of the war the Federal Govern ment commandeered the output for Im perial needs, fixing the price at 50/7 per unit — that means £250 per ton of tungstic acid, or for fairly good wolfram, say, 65 per cent, stuff, £167/10/- a ton. That was a small advance on the then market price. / By and bye it leaked out that the rate in New York was 112/-' per unit, or £560 per ton of tungstic acid — £60 a ton1 more than double what we in Australia were getting. But our Prime Minister, W. M. Hughes, assured us that the benefit went to the Imperial authorities. Many, per haps most wo?fram miners, were content to suffer this' heavy loss for war purposes — until it leaked out later...
