THE IMPUDENCE OF AMBITION. At every mooting of shareholders,, directors, employers, or boodeleers of any description these time* the utmost trepidation and concern Is expressed at ' the awful manner in which the worker's , appraisement of the value of his ser- j vices is increasing. Only the other day ! nt a meeting of tho Employers' Fed* j oration it was stated that workers \ nowadays not only wanted a living i wage, but remuneration "that would buy them many ' of tho luxuries of i life.''

THE WARFARE OF WIND. It may fairly bo taken that there's ' going to be hoil to pinv in the Federal i political circus within the next few I month*.

"Meanwhile some? of Joke's new-found followers ore curbing his disinclination to make financial hay while the sun shines, unci the Labor majority in the Senuto are hoping to the Lord that , Andy and Hilly are .speaking the J truth.

GOVERNMENT STROKE MUDDLING. [Newspaper Article] — Truth — 7 March 1914
GOVERNMENT STROKE MUDDLING. The tarnation cheek of booking clerks ! on soiiie of our suburban railway istu • tions is a subject which should engage 1 the uttcution of the powers that be. ' It is quite the usual thing, nowadays, • tor u crowd . t&lt;> gather at the ticket i filial' and await the pleasure ol' the [ young geut. inside, who eventually con j descends to stalk up to the counter in i haughty r'aahiou and ask what the j trouble is. This, in the majority of ; eases, is when the train is on the point . ot' leaving, with the result that about i hall* tho ticket-buyers are invariably '! left behind. The more fortunate ones are those who manage t&lt;i scramble in anywhere, cursing rnilwayrnen in gen eral, and the booking-clerk in particu I Jar. If even this wore the limit of j »'Government stroke" muddling*" it 1 might be tolerated, but later in the day, j when the?e same unfortunates return j to their respective suburbs, there is I usually another ordeal to g...
PINPRICKS OF THE PHONE. [Newspaper Article] — Truth — 7 March 1914
PINPRICKS OF THE 'PHONE. j I The present Postmaster-General, Agnr | i Wynne, has the reputation of being si i j decent gorr of sport, who, even if ho i j Joes know more ubout race prads than j ' postmaster-generalling, is open to re ceive a bint nbout the working of his ' i cumbersome department. Thai being ! so. he might give his attention to the ; nsinine restriction that prevents aiiyouc - ringing up to a public telephone. The 1 1 other eveuing this writer arranged with ! i si irieud to be at u certain public tele- i i phone, situated in a shop in a suburb. j j at an appointed time in order to re- !

"LUST AND LIFE." [Newspaper Article] — Truth — 7 March 1914
"LUST AND LITE." A female wowser rends the air with ; an hysterical shocked scream against an ! article, whose title is quoted above, ; which appeared iu "Truth" a fortnight flgo. lu fact, she is so shocked that she forgets to sign the off'ision, ia wblefi sIm labors under the drivelling dc-lur.ioii t.o deep-rooted in perverted pictistical minds that "lust" ia a vice, and that the word is synonymous with lechery. She exclaims:— The people of these times live and move and have their being for noth ing, only filthy lust, and they will die as they have lived. The cats and dogs are far above them. . . . This country has long been ripe for destruction. This benighted bigot evidently cannot understand that lust is a gift .of the Creator, intended to perpetuate His wonderful scheme, which is described by Haeckel as "th&lt;? Riddle of the Uni verse." Lust is lire; without it .there could be do life. Every person who is blessed with vigorous manhood or womanhood is lustful,* so anyon...

RAILWAYS OR DEFENCE? [Newspaper Article] — Truth — 7 March 1914
KAHiWAYS OS DEFENCE? IT. Pardons, Australian Freedom Leji^ui*. writes:—4'The prosperity of Australia is dependent on its produc tion. which can only bo increased by more population. The .stream of immi gration is dcroasiug, anil the market i'or country lands is stagnant, while that for town lots is booming. This oan only bo explained by the fact that the millions spent by our Government go mainly on unreproductive works that divert the labor from the land to the towns. The greatest expenditure ia on defence, ever increasing and entirely unproductive. This money, at present over five millions a year, would be suf ficient to establish the initial water channels for thrco Milfluras; that is, would bo sufficient to start every year a wealth-producing industry employing 180,000 people. That thero Is plenty of room for development is most obvious from the report on railway construc tion in tlio Northern Territory, where it is reckoned that tho land 200 miles on either aide would be benefi...
