Own a Motor Car. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 29 March 1919
Own a Motor Car. The committee of the Police and Fire men's Hospital Carnival and Art Union have made it possible to own a motor car for the modest outlay of 1/-. This year, to help the hospitals of New South Wales, they have launched a big campaign, with their objective of raising the sum of £30,000 for distribution amongst them. Every ticket sold means a shilling to help the hospital and every £1 donated means £2 to the hospitals, the Government having agreed to subsidise all cash dona tions. With the chance of owning either a Hudson Super Six, valued at £750, or a Ford touring car, valued at £250, and numerous other prizes ranging in value from £6 to £60, all for 1/-, the committee are sure that the inducement is sufficient for everyone in New South Wales to pur chase a ticket, which can be had from all police stations, fire brigades, and hos pitals, or on application to the hon. sec retary, B.

TROTTING. The N.S.W. Trotting Club will hold the first of several week-end meetings listed for the current year at Epping this Satur day afternoon.

Negro King (late King Almont), who won at the Richmond trotting meeting, is by Almont Chief— Draught mare. This is probably the first time 'draught mare' has appeared in the. pedigree of a horse In a race book, either galloping or trotting, for owners are generally not anxious to pub lish the fact There have been some smart sprinters among the gallopers up to half a mile out of draught mares, a notable In stance being Dandelion, who was racing with the Sydney ponies some years back. Silverware has been sold by EL B. Beverldge, Junee, to W. 3. Beatson, Cam pe...

DONCASTER AND CUP. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 29 March 1919
OONCASTER AND CUP. After the first acceptance, which fell due on Monday last, sixty-two horses re main in the Doncaster Handicap and ten less in the Sydney Cup. When the final acceptances are taken in the third week of j April perhaps more than half the horses now remaining in either race will dis appear. The most notable withdrawals from both events on Monday were Rebus and Biplane. As the former's name does not appear in the list of A.J.C. general entries evidently all is not well with this fine son of Radium. But the name of Biplane frequently appears amongst the entries for the handicap events. Magpie is another important name missing from the Doncaster and Cup, but it appears in the weigrht-for-age events. Up to date there has been very little speculation on the big double. After to - day's races matters in tms connection are liKeiy to liven up considerably. At present Pub lican is a rather short -priced favorite for the Doncaster, while Kennaquhair, after his good showing at W...

NOTES AND NOTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 29 March 1919
NOTES AND NOTIONS. There were eleven lucky men and one unlucky woman at the Menangle Park races on Tuesday (says the 'Sydney «un'). And the good fortune of the men was due to the bad luck of the woman. It all happened In connection with the Flying Welter Handicap, which was won by Desert Malt, who was almost uncalled in tlie betting. True, after the event there was an odd bookmaker who said he had laid the Malt King horse at 10 to 1. but 20 to 1 could have been secured without the slightest difficulty, and the majority of the layers of the odds had a 'skinner.' The winner was also neglected on the tote. This was not surprising, for Desert Malt could not have been regarded with confidence; but all the same there were eleven men who took out 5/- tickets, and had the pleasure of collecting £10/8/6 each. They were not only lucky in being on the winner, but they had the greatest of good fortune Jn collecting such a fine dividend. It was only the merest chance that; one very much smaller ...

"AUSTRALIA'S NOBLEST SON." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 29 March 1919
'AUSTRALIA'S NOBLEST SON.' Sir E&mund, better known as 'Toby' Barton, a judge of the High Court of Aus tralia, in which highly-paid position he is vainly expected to be impartial, held forth on Tuesday, the 25th inst., to the 'League of Good Citizenship,' of which he is President. The scandalously untruthful statements which he camouflaged, as usual, under a cloud of verbiage, show how utterly un fitted he is for the -judicial position he holds. . . .. If he believed what he. was saying that ig only, f urther proof of his incurable class bias . and utter inability to comprehend any. standpoint but his own. Mr. Baj-toi] excuses himself for taking an active part in a disguised Tory organi sation by making bitter but unspecified charges against his political opponents. He asks himself this poser, 'How can you say that you disclaim Party if you acknowledge your hostility to revolution ary activity?' and proceeds to answer it to his own satisfaction by asserting that certain pers...

_ ? — ? . ?a ? ' ? ? ? EDITORIAL THE COMING STATE CONFER ENCE. WILL MAKE OR BREAK THE MOVE MENT. THE 'GO-SLOW' DOCTRINE IN POLITICS. The next N.S.W. Labor Conference will nake or break the Australian Labor Move ment in this State, and largely affect its future in the whole Commonwealth. .Whatever dangers there may be in going too far, that has never been a malady from which the A.L.P. has suf fered. The gravest danger which now faces it is from the reactionary, vote catching element which is known to be or ganising in defence of the pernicious doc trine of political 'go -slow -ism.' . Of course all political action involves and includes the winning of votes, but they should be won by convincing the people of the soundness and moral justice of Labor priniciples, not by using them as traps and snares to be baited to suit the different tastes of possible customers. At the present time the whole world is prepared to advance further and faster at one stride than it has done in the last f...
A Wife's Devotion MRS. HOLMAN'S PLEA. HIGH IDEALS FOR £35 A WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 29 March 1919
♦ ? A Wife's Devotion MRS. HOLMAN'S PLEA. HIGH IDEALS FOR £35 A WEEK. 'We have no graft in this country. The politicians of Australia are actuated by the finest ideals and noblest motives,' said Mrs. Holman, when replying to Alma Whittaker's talk at the Women's Service Club on 'How the Women of America Keep the Politicians on the Job.' 'Perhaps I am being rather personal,' she went on, 'but my husband gets only £35 a week for his self-sacrifice in taking up the responsible position as Premier of this State. Other men make lucrative incomes at their professions or business life. But my husband, actuated by high souled ideals, gets only £35. Whereas if he thought less of his country he could make much more at his profession. 'The American judges are elected, our judges are appointed, and in this way 'graft' has no chance.'

Profits at all Costs. CAPITALISM'S ATROCITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 29 March 1919
Profits at all Costs. CAPITALISM'S ATROCITIES. Capitalism in every country is the same evil thing. So long as it reaps profits it shows no concern as to the people who produce the wealth which it appropriates. Japan has built up a large trade with Australia during the war, and it is par ticularly interesting to us to note the way the Japanese capitalists treat the wage slaves. 'Japan at First Hand,' a recent book by Mr. J. I. Clarke, a New York jour nalist, provides some useful information. He says that the system of keeping the factories going continually with day and night shiftjs of workers. WHO TAKE i TURNS AT SLEEPING IN THE SAME ! DOMITORIES, WHICH ARE CONSE QUENTLY NEATER PROPERLY AIRED, 'leaves much to be desired.' The vitality of the workers is lowered, and tubercular disease is apparent.

On the Verandah WASTED LIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 29 March 1919
% Mmmfak WASTED LIVES. '? The capitalist always has the shivers. . Some years before the war, when there ?wasn't a_ cloud in the . financial sky, a Sydney journalist had occasion to visit a friend at a fashionable seaside boarding house. The chief boarder was a stout old gentleman who used to sit on the verandah all day and groan about the Labor Party. His wife used to groan with him and bring him beef tea to keep his strength up so that he could keep on groaning. Dancing attendance on both chronic invalids was a pathetic youth — their only child and the heir to their thousands. The old people were not really ill — just sick with anxiety about their money. While the pathetic son -waited for them to die and leave him the money he washed the dog. Even the dog seemed to be dying of cowardice and fatty degene ration of the mind. Long association with his owners had made him that sort of dog. In the evening, when the old people had gone groaning to bed, the youth used to haunt the verand...
