Up Goes the Price of Bread. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 22 March 1919

Up Goes the Price of Bread. The National party seem unable even to temporarily restrain the rapacity ?;£ their profiteer supporters, for whilst a by-election is being fought out another rise in the price of bread has been noti fied. What has become of those 'un- changeable laws of supply and demand' of which Bruce Smith was wont to dis course so learnedly? Millions of tons of wheat are stored all over Australia, yet the price of bread goes up as if we were at death grips with famine. v .. OUR ROTTING HARVEST. Hundreds of thousands of tons of grain has rotted during the past three years, yet suburban dairymen and poultry farmers have been paying famine prices for wheat and mill by-products. To pretend that this administration of the wheat pool has been in the interest of the wheat grower is to fly in the face of facts which cannot be gainsaid. AMERICAN BUYERS TURNED DOWN. When America was actually in desperate need of wheat and was prepared to pay for many cargoes, this, export was n...

RUSSIAN SOVIET GOVERNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 22 March 1919

RUSSIAN SOVIET GOVERNMENT. The following extracts are taken from an article published in 'Stead's Review': 'Under the Russian Soviet constitution every workman, every peasant, in Russia has the right to vote in* the election of deputies to his local Soviet. 'These local Soviets choose their dele gates to an All-Russian Assembly of Soviets. This All-Russian Assembly elects its Central Executive Committee on a basis of approximately one in five of the delegates to the Assembly. This Central Executive Committee- controls,- appoints, and dismisses the1 People's Commissaries, who are the actual Government. All de crees of State importance are passed by the Central Executive Committee before being issued as laws by the Council of People's Commissaries. . THE RECALL. 'No limit -ts set to local- re-election. Deputies are withdrawn and others sub stituted for them whenever this seems necessary to .the looal electorate. Thus the country is freed from the danger of finding itself governed by t...

The Council Must be Destroyed. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 22 March 1919

The Council Must be Destroyed. Previous articles have pointed out the necessity of destroying Upper Houses. The one with which we are specially con cerned is the Legislative Council of New South Wales. Although differently con stituted in different States they are all uesless, mischievous and dangerous. There can be no doubt that if one be destroyed Lhe movement for abolition will become irresistible, and they will all come crash ing down like a pack of cards. We may therefore expect a most desperate resist ance to be encountered from the com bined forces of vested interests, prejudice and ignorance. The coming fight should stimulate the energies of every Labor member. With them lies the duty of firing the ammuni tion which must be gathered up and sorted out from the abundant records of the past. If the Conservative forces in Australia were wise they would surrender at once, voluntarily and gracefully, lest worse be fall them. History shows no instances of such wisdom in the possess...

! SOLDIERS, Ni\YAL MEN, NURSES, FEMALE DEPENDENTS OF DECEASED SOLDIERS AND SAILORS. HOUSING PROBLEM SOLVED Millions Made Available by the Federal Government. No Excuse for a Returned Soldier Wanting a Home. The Federal Government lately passed the War Service Act, by which provision has been made for paying off balances on land or house, for building house. on land owned, etc., etc. Up to 90 per cent, of the value of the house and land will be advanced — advance not to exceed £700 — the money to be repaid by weekly, fortnighty, or monthly instalments spread over 20 to 37 years, rate of interest 6 per cent.

Maternity Endowment— Hands Off! Arthur Griffith writes:— [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 22 March 1919

Maternity Endowment — Hands Off! Arthur Griffith writes:— The proposal of the Commonwealth Go vernment to deface our Maternity Endow ment Act by fastening to it the badge of pauperism, constitutes not only a distinct breach of faith with the electors, but is in itself probably the most retrograde move ment ever attempted by any Australian Government. The working of the measure to date has fully justified all I said of it when I first proposed its embodiment in the Platform of the Labor Party. I would point out now, as I did then, that the immense importance of the prin ciple is not measured by the small finan cial assistance it gives to persons badly in need of it, but by the fact that it em bodies a recognition by the community of its obligation to bear a share of the cost incidental to the introduction to our coun try of the very best possible immigrants — the Australian baby. ' I know the sum pro vided is miserably inadequate, and I am aware that it is often squandered by the rec...

- PROFITEERING IN ENGLAND. 'LONDON, March 13, 'The disclosure at the first sitting of the Coal Commission of the haphazard methods of price-fixing is regarded as virtually equivalent to official sanction for profiteering. rThe 'Pall Mall Gazette' asks, why, .de spite the immense - traffic and Increased freights and fares, the railways contrive to show a yearly hook loss of £90,000,000. 'The 'Evening Standard' points out the defective basis of food control, which was jantonded toJcefep t»»e_«smaU retailers satis fied.

[?] THE PRESENT SOCIAL {SYSTEM, BASED ON PRIVATE OWNER SHIP, ENCOURAGES AND GLORIFIES THE SPIRIT OF GAIN, AND CRIPPLES AND THWARTS THE SPIRIT OF SERVICE. THE CONSTRUCTIVE PROFESSIONS. ' '-- Socialism, indeed, does not simply look j to, it appeals to, the constructive profes- I 'sions at tlie present' time. The- artist is by nature a Socialist, and not only artis tic work, but the better sort of scientific investigation, the better sort of literary work, and every occupation that involves the persistent free use of thought, must bring the mind more and more towards the definite recognition of our social in coherence and waste. * * # But this by no means exhausts the pro fessions that ought to have a distinct bias for Socialism. * * * The scientific agriculturist, the medical man, the engineer, the architect, the me chanical inventor, the industrial organiser, and every sort of .maker, must be at one in their desire for emancipation from ser ? vitudc to the trader, the promoter, the l...

Daughter's Letter [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 22 March 1919

[?] Dear Mother, — What a happy world we should have if these great Liberal or Na tionalist women got their way! I read a letter one of them sent to the' daily papers, and I laughed. Their patronage of what they call the 'working classes' is beautiful. I wish some one would tell them, as the Rev. Charles Kingsley did, ihat the classes that xlon't work are crim inal. There are really two classes in the ivorld — the working class and the criminal :lass; but what an_ insult it would be to Mrs. Bogue Luffman and the other noisy lames to tell them that they belong to the latter! Where was I? Oil, yes— about the Baby Bonus. The suggestion was that it should be made four times as great, but on no account — just think of it — on no ac count to be given to the mothers to spend. There you get the fine Nationalist view. The Liberal lady will distribute it! What happiness that will bring to the worker's home ! # « # Such women are not likely to find their way into one of our real homes. If they...

LITERATURE FOR THE WORKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 22 March 1919

LITERATURE FOR THE WORKERS. No movement can be more wisely demo cratic than one which seeks to give to the laborer, the clerk, the miner, or the ar tisan knowledge as good and as accurate though he may not have so much of it, as if he were a student at a University. # ? * Nothing but good can come of the at tempts to connect learning with the liv iner forces of society, and to make the industrial world a sharer in the classic tradition of the lettered world. # # * Our object is to bring the ideas of beauty and simplicity and cultivation of the mind within the reach of those who do the drudgery ana the service and rude work of the world. * * ? And it CAN be done — do not let us be afraid — it can be done without the least degree impairing the skill of our handi craftsmen, or the manliness of our na tional life. * # * j Life is the great educator, but a parcel of books, if they are well chosen, reconcile us to discipline; they interpret for us vir tue and justice; they awaken in us th...

BOXING. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 22 March 1919

BOXING. At the Stadium, Rushcutters Bay, to morrow (Saturday) night, Frank Darcy will either make a name for himself or meet his Waterloo. He has to face the toughest proposition that a young boxer ever had put before him in the shape of the Victorian welterweight champion, Barney Thompson. Thompson is a boxer of several years' experience, skilled in ringcraft, strong, and very game, and is a heavy hitter. Against a man of this type Darcy will probably show up to dis tinct advantage, as he has never been expended, and the boxing world is ex tremely interested in his welfare. 'Will Frank Darcy emulate the deeds of his late and famous brother Les?' is what most fans are asking, and there is no doubt that the question is a difficult one to answer. Good judges, including men like Dave Smith, Frank's trainer, Albert Lloyd, the heavyweight champion, and news paper men of repute, consider that Frank is 'the goofis,' and is certain to rise to championship form.' There has been some little d...

THE CASE OF PETER SIMONOFF. AN INTERNATIONAL OUTRAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 22 March 1919

THE CASE OF PETER SIMONOFF. AN INTERNATIONAL OUTRAGE. Of all the arbitrary actions of^the Com monwealth 'National' Government none have been more indefensible from every point of view than the treatment of Peter Simonoff, appointed by the Russian Bol shevik Government as Consul-General for. that country in Australia. Simonoff was at the time of his ap pointment resident in Queensland, where he had lived and worked for several years. In. accordance with the British Imperial policy, the Australian Government refused to recognise the appointment. For that refusal the Commonwealth Go vernment is not responsible, as the con trol of all foreign relations is the sole prerogative of the Imperial Government. For what followed, however, the Com monwealth Government is entirely respon sible. When Simonoff, as a working-class rep resentative and a Socialist, continued his activities, various efforts were made to sheet home to him charges of illegality, but these failed in every instance. Subseq...
