IN THE AUSTRALIAN PARLIAMENT. LAND TAX BILL PRESENTED BY MR. FISHER. PASSING THE ARBITRATION BILL. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 25 August 1910

IN THE AUSTRALIAN PARLIAMENT. ? + — _ — LAND TAX BILL PRESENTED BY MR. FISHER. PASSING THE ARBITRATION BILL. Prime Minister Fisher has presented th6 case for a Commonwealth land tax. He holds that the principle has been unas .sailably asserted, the question of details and how best to impose the tax alone re main to be determined. The result of the last elections had proved that, he main tained, by bringing about one of the most important changes known in the politics of Australia. Yet the Fusion remnant at a caucus Catherine: — thev call it a nartv meeting— decided to table a hostile amend ment to the land tax proposals, although they all protest to believe that land taxa tion is - necessary for Australia — but |t should be imposed by the States! Mr. .Fisher pointed out that the Labor Govern ment had a clear verdict from the people on the policy presented, and. he insists that the electors are going to be obeyed. Laborites cheered him as he rose to move the second reading of the bil...

THE PROGRESSIVE LAND TAX AND "JUSTITIA." [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 25 August 1910

THE PROGRESSIVE LAND TAX AND ' JUSTITIA.' ? j- - . i THE 'Sydney Morning Herald's.' ' expert,' Mi'. Searight (of the firm of Hain and Searight) says that the Com- £ monwealth progressive land tax 'may tend to ruin the.man with excessive graz ing land unless some alteration is' made,' and he goes on to remark, .that ' no' better illustration of the .injustice here contemplated, could t-e given tnan uiat supplied by 'Justitia' in the 'Herald' of last Monday.' Turning to . the ' Herald ' of August 15, we find a lugubrious wail, from the pen of the' writer referred to by Mr. Searight, anent the ' harshness ' of the tax and the. .'^injustice ' that would be done to the*- grazier. _ Of course, the fgoldrblooded .-assumption is invariably to the effect, .that'all-pasto'ral. freeholds have been paid for. in-hard cash. : ?^e know, that such-is not the .case.;'* Thousands of square miles .. have been acquired by banks and financial institutions from the less fortu nate 'first robbers.'

OLD BALLADS. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 25 August 1910

OLD BALLADS. Some of the traditional ballads alluded to in last week's remarks on folklore tu'e now reprinted. To many readers, of course, they will be familiar, but it is no unpleasant thing to come across a familiar literary face. Ballads are under stood b5r the derivation of the word to have once been dance-songs, with a chorus of dancers, or of displayers of action in other ways, taking up a refrain at the end of cach stanza. This kind of song still exists in some primitive coun tries, and one which seemed to be adapted from Montenegro' was lately to be seen in the stage production of ' The Merry Widow.' A characteristic of ballads is that .they convey a 'story; even the ' drawing-room ballad' commonly keeps' this ' trait. Tho traditional ballads of England and Scotland, known for cen turies past, ' have filtered through the minds of many singers or reciters, so that they are known in various forms to which riiemory or fancy has changed them. Ex perts on the subject cannot. agre...

THE AFTERMATH. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 25 August 1910

. THE AFTERMATH. Jack Johnson has bought a mansion amongst those of New York's ' Four Hundred' and there is a recrudescence' of race hatred in consequence. NOBODY possessing a single gral# of comnionsense estimates rac« supremacy 'by 'knockouts,' the ?proAvess of lineage - according 1 1 the .nrti'nfe vocicfovorl V»\r fhr» WVPT- theless, ignorant negroes and whites of a rudimentary, stage of deArelopment do so estimate -race-supremacy and lineage proAvess. Had Jeffries Avon in the con test with Johnson, there would have been no outbreak, and the racial irritation AArould have been one-sided. Even had Johnson sold the issue of the fight in order to saA-e his opponent's f ee (in more than the moral interpretation of the phrase) the pride as well as the parse of the haughty Caucasian would have been spared. But Johnson, though only a black bruiser, has apparently personal pride . as . well as personal prowess and : undaunted courage. He fought to win— and Avon! Immediately are the flood...

AUSTRALIAN PLAYS. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 25 August 1910

AUSTRALIAN PLAYS. . 'Pierrot, in Australia,' a fantasy by Arthur H. Adams, was one of 'three short plays produced by the Sydnej' Stage So ciety last Friday, at the Standard Theatre. (The others were imported.) The curtain riseg on a small family' living a rough selection life.' The daughter is continu ally expecting a lover who. is absent on a long droving trip. 'Instead, Pierrot enters — the Pierrot of French pantomime. The introduction- of this chalk-faced figure of artificiality into the midst of crude reality j 'is effective. Pierrot 'plays various pranks, | makes the girl fall in love with him and lets her fall out' when her lover returns indignant, and finally departs remarking that he has come to the right country, for Australians are a nation of Pierrots. Are they? Pierrot is . generally under stood to represent a child mind in a grown body, a kind of Sentimental Tommy, always playing at things instead of doing them'.

TESTIMONIAL TO LABOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 25 August 1910

TESTIMONIAL TO LABOR. ^-PEAKING in the Federal House re« cently, Mr. Elliott -Johnson, of Lang, complained oi the ' long hours worked in the G.P.O., Sydiiey, and said that for a Labor GoA'ernment to allow this to continue wras shocking.. In some dull, dreary way, the exceedingly dull and dreary Johnson eA'idently thought he was hit,ting the Labor Ministry; yet, quite un intentionally, lie paid it a magi fi cent compliment, by tacitly admitting that sweating and a Labor GoA'ernment were irreconcilable. For a Labor: Government to allow sweating to continue Avas shock-: ing, said Elliott, and he was quite right. EA'idently, howeA-er, it Avouldn't be shock ing for a Liberal GoA'ernment to -lo so, otherwise tlie dreary Johnson need not lia\re emphasised the words Labor Go vernment. Ellson supports ; the Liberal , crowd and opposes Labor, therefore his OAvn statement is rather a shocking re flection upon Johnsiott and his crowd, although, in his, dullness, ;he will not grasp this at first...
