The Agitators [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 13 August 1892

Tbe Agitators. Auk the agitators to blame— talkers whose only Crime Is to utter aloud the thoughts that men think in every clime? Are the few who speak out in Queensland, tu blame for a curse world-wide 1 They never made the conditions and they cannot command the tide. Ara^.hey to blame for the fallen, the out -?»?=! and the thief, Tor the, thousands of strong arms idle, which want work not relief ? For the ninu who camp 'neath the gum trees, or crouch 'neath the city walls, Who would answer at ouce to Freedom's trump, but don't stir if pitfy calle. Let them talk as they like about wages, make them a.-- low as they will, _ Whilst the few holdthenien,uf-of existence, Labour must go begging still ; Curse them and their k-w- wage preachers 1 We. a.iik bread, thoy give us a stone ; But bewu-e ! While Belahazzar feasted his kingdom was overthrown. Locke Altqn.

The Political Gates. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 13 August 1892

-Tne Political Gates. OBGAXISER GILBERT CASEY WRITES : The arguments used years ago against Unionism, viz., that its tendency was to destroy that nmnlr independence so characteristic of the British working man, is never heard to-day where Unionism has fought and firmly established itself.. Instead of that we are told that Unionism only they want it conducted on proper principles, iut do -not4ike to-see -it mixed up with politics. ,? ? In reality there are two gates — the poli tical and the industrial — through either of which labour may obtain freedom from the bondage in which it is held. Foolishly enough Labour has in the past concen trated all it* forces in trying to effect an escape by the industrial gato (which; of course WaB the hardest to force) and in the meantime it gave up the-kflys of the political gate to the capita lie tie — dasa- Now, however, things are somewhat different inasmuch as the late strikes have forth' firet timedivided society into two dis t.inor, nljipyps w...

But the st'-ndpoi-.t is not impartial. lne fault we find with the Workkk is that it deliberately dk torts facts to suit its creed ; that it lays emphasis upon everything which agrees with its theories, and sup presses everything which contradicts tKem; that it flaunts all the pros .iiid sedulously iiides all the contras. ^p this way it has become as unreliable a guide as any of the , organs of capital which it condeirns.
