THE NEW AUSTRALIA MOVEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 6 August 1892

THE NEW AUSTRALIA MOVEMENT. When a man has been intimately con- nected with the Organisation of Labour, and has been trusted by it, he would be wrong to let it be said that he has with- drawn from the Labour movement when he has not. Although I have resigned the editorship of the Worker and with the editorship all the official connection with the A.L.F. which it entailed, yet the Labour movement never had a greater lien on my life than it has now. I believe : that the truths taught in the socialistic labour movement are practical and not "theoretic" only ; that a complete demon-   stration of those truths may be made peacefully by common everyday men who have strength and faith ; and that such a demonstration if on a sufficient scale to finally attract general notice, will remove the doubts and fears which really impede reform and will crown the Labour movement with complete and peaceful accomplish- ment. I do not desire to underestimate and certainly have no intention ...

BOARD OF TRUSTEES' ANNOUNCEMENT. THE "WORKER" EDITORSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 6 August 1892

BOARD OF TRUSTEES' ANNOUNCEMENT. THE "WORKER" EDITORSHIP. It was with feelings of sincere regret that the Board ol Trustees had last week to announce the retirement of Mr. W. Lane from the position of editor of the WORKER, which has since its inception been so ably conducted by him. Although Mr. Lane's resignation was handed to us some time ago, at oar urgent request ne agreed not to ask its formal acceptance until such time as an efficient temporary editor could be secured. In addition to this the trustees hoped that in the mean time there might be some possibility of inducing Mr. Lane to reconsider his deter mination. Also it was deemed inadvisable to give the many enemiej_of_iheJLabotHf ? movement any opportunity to misrepresent any possible change in the conducting of thB Worker while this was still indefinite. ? For these reasons it was not considered advisable to give any official intimation of the resignation earlier than last week. A conference to consider tbe extension of t...
