Kandos News. ONE BIG UNION ATTACKED BY THE MUDGEE "GUARDIAN." NO CRITICISM ALLOWED. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 5 April 1919

Kandos News. ? '?'' one big union attacked by the muogee 'guardjan.' no criticism Allowed. (By Our Kandos Co-respondent.) In a recent issue of the local paper, the Mudgee^Guardlah,' a certain shire coun cillor, W. R. Jones, capitalist and station owner, Rylstone correspondent if or the 'Guardian,' made |he following tirade against Unionism under the heading of ''One Big Union':— __ 'The war has developed Bolshevism. Its germs were lying dormant until fertilised by the progress of the great war, and it has reared its ugly head in such a. threat ening manner as to menace the - whole world with its hideous and bloodthirsty policy. What is Bolshevism? I should say, blood-lust, mob rule, dealing death and destruction to everything- of an intelli gent and civilised nature that stands in its way. Its chief aim is the destruction of capital, the nationalisation of every;' thing, including our women. 'Once it gains power, no matter how humble it stoops to gain it, it is good-bye to law and o...

The Copra Strike at Rotuma. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 5 April 1919

The Copra Strike at Rotuma. From the eminently respectable and per fectly orthodox pages of a somewhat be lated missionary report information' is available which shows that the economic education of our Polynesian brother is progressing at a most gratifying rate. He has formed a union, organised a strike, and carried it to a successful issue. This indicates real progress. When the competition of German copra buyers and shippers was eliminated in the Pacific zone, a well-known Australian trading and shipping company proceeded to take up that portion of ''the white man's burden' which had been most unwillingly laid down by the representatives of Ger man shipping companies. The unsophis ticated Polynesian was' not supposed to kpow that owing to the enormous war de mand for oils and fats of all descriptions copra had gone up on the London market to absolutely record prices. The 'success ful exploitation of 'the heathen in his blindness' looked about the softest pos sible snap under such...

Another War Breaks Out. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 5 April 1919

Another War Breaks Out. The 'Mclntosh paper, the 'Sunday Times,' has been for some weeks fea turing articles from alleged great men of Great Britain, bearing fac-similes of their signatures. Tho 'Sun,' being suspicious of their bona -fides, cabled to Eucope to make in quiries . and subsequently charged the 'Times' with all softs x-f tilings. These charges the 'times' denies on Sunday last, demands apologies, and threatens a big prosecution. Of course, this puts discussion of the matter out. of the question', but the law yers will probably make a bigger scoop than either of the newspapers by the time it's all over. ' .

POVERTY. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 5 April 1919

POVERTY. Poverty arises from inability to get work. Inability to get work arises from the fact that the bounties of nature are appropriated as private property by a few, and so instead of having the eq.ua! right to get at those bounties, the masses have to go begging of the few — of the classes — for the boon to labor. * * ? We have a belief that poverty can be abolished by conforming human laws and institutions to the great principles of equal justice. # # ?# The poor are not merely the disinherited ones, the wanderers, the tramps, the ..beg gars, but the tired and struggling masses of mankind, who are at best only a few deprees above pauperism; those to whom a somewhat protracted period without employment or a serious domestic afflic tion might reduce to absolute poverty. TJie poor are the great masses of men everywhere. The rich are the few, the poor are the many. * * ? The vice that is the parent of poverty is itself the .result of poverty. . — — —

On the Verandah IRISH. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 5 April 1919

[?] IRISH. ' One-third of the-people of Australia are Irish by birth or descent' the mountain ous end of Scotland, Wt es ' and Cornwall '—all Celtic countries— supply other tiig elements in the population. The -virility of the Celtic races is more persistent than that of the purely Anglo-Saxon peoples. You wil^ generally find that a family called Smith, with four English great grandfathers, three English greatgrand raothers and only one Irish greatgrand mother, forgets all about Kent and York shire and Devon and describes itself 'for all thei years as of Irish origin. But it is not only the Irish tradition which re ivains; the Irish characteristics are there also. History tells us that the Irish con quered all their conquerors and made Nor mans, arid Englishmen who had settled among them 'more Irish than the Irish.' It is, therefore, reasonable to suppose that, if Australia is one-third Irish to-day, it v/ill be two-thirds Irish before many years have gone. It is an interesting deve...

ENGLAND IN PERIL. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 5 April 1919

ENGLAND IN PERIL. England is in high peril. The peril con cerns not the blood, or the stock, or the race, but its institutions; and by insti tutions their vigor and their authority this ancient State lives. If they fall be low a certain level of contempt and dis ease, with them the State falls. There was no modern State the .insti tutions of which were as strong1, but a generation ago, as were those of England. THERE IS NONE IN WHICH SO PRO DIGIOUS A REVOLUTION HAS BEEN WORKING. In no other country were the servants of the State put higher in public esteem and more respected by those whom they governed. ALL THAT IS GONE, and it is gone through the COWARDICE AND FALSE HOOD OF THOSE WHO SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE CONSERVATORS OF ENG LAND, TREACHERY AND SWINDLING. WHEN IT WAS PERCEIVED THAT WEALTH COULD PURCHASE ANY THING from a useless 'honor' to a vital 'policy,' that MEMBERSHIP of the various PUBLIC BODIES — particularly of the House of Commons — RENDERED A MAN IMMUNE, no matter what his ...

THE WAR AND AFTER THE PACIFIC ISLANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 5 April 1919

THE WJ*,.W AFTER 'WAR IS THE STATESMAN'S GAME, THE PRIEST'S DELIGHT, THE LAWYER'S JEST. THE HIRED ASSASSIN'S TRADE.' —Shelley. THE PACIFIC ISLANDS. It is not1 often that such a scathing in dictment of ' the. administration of any Capitalist Government finds its way into the Tory press as the report of the lec ture delivered by Mr. T. J. McMahon, F.R.G.S., on 'The Future of the Pacific' end his recent tbur through Ocean, Nauru, Gilbert, arid Marshall Islands, which ap peared in the 'S. M. Herald' early this ?week. Just at the present time when we are hearing almost daily of the frantic efforts of the Commonwealth's 'Chief Calamity' — 'W, M. Hughes — to secure the control by Australia of more Pacific Islands, it is particularly unfortunate, and most disquieting-, to learn on the authority of one who undoubtedly should know how Australian administration 'etinks in the nostrils'' of these island peoples. Fol lowing are some extracts from the 'Herald' report: — UNPARALLELED SCANDAL. - 'A...

? RUSSIAN BOLSHEVIKS. From an article In the 'New States - inan,' under the caption, ''Drifting Into IA.noth.er War,' the following is taken: 'No one but a lunatic jwill suspect us of .*. peculiar affection for the Bolsheviks. iWc have said enough about them to show that WE DO NOT APPROVE of their original methods, and that we doubt the permanent practicability of their political and economic doctrines, and that we cer tainly do not want (although we do not seriously anticipate) a spread of Bolshe vism in this country.

The Place of Peace. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 5 April 1919

,. The Place of Peace. By ISRAEL ZANGWILL. So came I to a scene of witches' Sabbath — J3ar-cracking cannon-claps made devil's thunder, Mixed with the hiss and flare of foul ex plosives Arid screams of disembowelled men and horses. Green o'er the soil a ghastly vapor glided, In heaven, roaring, hung death -raining navies, tiocks burst into eye-gouging chips of granite, The waters spouted up in boiling pillars, Death boomed at once from earth and sky . and ocean, And men of every race, black, white, or yellow, At death-grips, clawed and stabbed, and bit and throttled. Miasma-breeding, lay unburied corpses, Envied of youths gangrened and semi frozen. Leviathans ten thousand shipwrights toiled at, With freights, the harvest of a world of workers. Were gulped like paper-boats, and as an infant Hubs figures from its slate, the painful garner Of generations — cities, railways, harbors, And carven treasure of the Middle Ages — Was childishly expunged. I saw around me — Looming incarnadined,...

The Sun-Raysed Industry in Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 5 April 1919

The Sun-Raysed Industry in Australia. by AUSTRALIANS FOR AUSTRALIANS A typed or printed description of the harvesting of fruits in the SUN-RAYSED districts can only partially convey the fascination of witnessing the processes by which fresh grapes are grown and ire then transformed into SUN - RAYSED dried fruits. By far the greater part ot the SUN KAYSED fruits are grown under irrigation along the banks of the Murray in Victoria, New South Wales, and South Australia. Four irrigations per year are usually applied. The average holding or 'Triock' is 15 ; acres. The water is pumped from the river from low lifts to reservoirs on a series of higher levels, whence it is distributed into jniles of 'main channels' from which it is taken into 'head ditches' and along 'fur- :., rows' by the 'blocker,' whose 'rotation' ^ Is is\ricUy supervised by the local body controlling the water supply, which body vcovers expenses by an acreage water rate i^pSySw? yearly. *? *The number of irrigations and ...

A Practical Policy. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 5 April 1919

rA Practical PoEcy. By A- C. FOX, Surry HiUs A3*P. ^ The present controversy regarding the activities of the O.B.U. and .the recent repudiation of connection with that move ment by John Storey, M.L.A., makes it essential to give the matter earnest at tention. In all Labor circles the neces sity of co-operation between political and industrial forces is largely realised, but there are those who believe in industrial action alone. The objects of the Labor Party and the O.B.U. are the same. The objective of the A.L.P. reads as follows: 'The securing of the full results of their industry to all producers by the. collective ownership of monopolies.' The O.B.U. aims at securing control of industry by 'revolutionary industrial and political action.' Mr. Garden and other O.B.U. officials state that force will not be used to attain their ends.' They propose to elect their delegates to Parliament to enact the revo lutionary legislation. Why should we not, therefore, make their policy our poli...
