THE GERMAN COMMUNES.—I. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 20 August 1892

THE CE8W1AN COMMUNES.-I. Labour, so far as a conBtructiyejxriicy is (touwvu&i, Tiai but~ono aim — complete emancipation from the thraldom of capital. To be free in the proper sense of the word Labour must own the land and machinery ? jn ghort all the instruments that create wealth. This we hope.. tp_ achieve J?y_the_ oBtahiishtnent of the Co-operative Common wealth. The commonwtalth can only be built up brick by brick, and there are some of the bricks which appear to me necessary for the very foundation — universal suffrage for adults of both sexes ; that is one man, one woniau, one vote ; the referendum ; the erection of the divisional boards into county councils, with complete powers of self-government for industrial purposes ; the State Bank ; llie cooperative com munes. Then the network of co-operative communes would together form the great Co-operative Commonv.ealth. It can be said without fear of contra diction that since tho communes of our ancestors, th« old Germanic...

WOULD BEAR PERUSAL. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 20 August 1892

WOULD BEAH I'EBDSAL. The WobkeS is not large in inches, but being printed in small-though distinct type, the publishers are able to get a good deal of matter into it, and 'much of this would bear perusal by even those whose Bympathy is not directly with the working classes. Alfchonerh w« arn nrninin-H fr- f.Vin advocjacy of the use of violent methods for the. redress of grievances under which the working classes may suffer, we are prepared to support and encourage, as far us our powers will permit us, any working man's journal which has an honest desire to pro mote his interests and reduje his wrongs by pacific means. We do nob expect that anything can be done by what is known as milk-and-water journalism, but while the Worker may properly give itself to vigorous and trenchant writing, ideas of anarchy, we hope, will be carefully eschewed. The Wobker is well printed and the matter is neatly arranged. ?^?Foois- eray Advertiser, ? ~

BYSTANDER'S NOTEBOOK [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 20 August 1892

BYSTANDER'S NOTEBOOK           At the very time that the Brisbane Ministers' Union was posing as an impar- tial and consistent mediator   Victimising | in industrial matters, the a parson. | Presbytery — which was well represented in the union —         was engaged in victimising the Rev. J. S. Pollock, of Sherwood, for his utterances on social topics. The Brisbane press has     not had anything to say about this, though everybody knows it ; the Worker will have very much to say about it if Mr. Pollock's appeal to the General Presbytery is dismissed. For it is a singular thing that a parson can advocate a reduction of wages, or denounce labour agitation, or defend competitive methods, to the jubi- lant satisfaction of every smug profit- monger, without being victimised ; but the moment he follows in the footsteps of the Carpenter...

THE NEW AUSTRALIA MOVEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 20 August 1892

THE NEW AUSTRALIA MOVEMENT. The desirability of having some distinct arrangement between the bush unions and the New Australia Co-operative Settle- ment Association has been discussed by the C.D.C. and was brought before the General Executive, A.L.F., at a recent meeting by the delegate of the C.D.C., Mr. J. A. Campbell. He stated that the C.D.C. considered that steps should be taken to prevent the work of the unions becoming disorganised owing to prominent men taking up other work and that the federated unions should be assured that the general officers of the A L.F. were not going to be continually charged. The C.D.C. did not bring this up in any spirit of animosity, and as the promoters of the New Australia movement had met his         representations in the most friendly way an arrangement had been drafted which he thought would meet all difficulties if the General Executive would ratify it. The following resolution was afterwa...
