BETTER THAN PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 27 August 1892

BETTER THAN PABLIAMENT. ^The Worker is essentially what it pro fesses to be7~a worker's paper ; and to say that all questions are viewed and discussed from a working class point of view is but saying that it does what every class organ must do or cease to be a class organ. Yet we feel sure, from the tone of the articles, that the editor of this paper would frankly admit the existence of another point of view. The Wokkkr appears to discuBs all Stiestions from an abstract point of view — lat is things as they ought to be were -men -perfeefc — inetead-el^diseussing things ftB they are. As St. Paul, the most success ful of Christ's apostles, said, ' All things are lawful for me but all things are not expedient.' Or, to take a more concrete case, Cobbett in his grammar states that there is no comparative to honest, that every man must either be an honest man or u thief. In the abstract, this is no doubt grammatically correct, but applied practically would it leave anyone entitled to be c...

THE GERMAN COMMUNES.—II. A Future for Our Own Divisional Boards. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 27 August 1892

THE GERMAN COMMUNES.-II. A Future for Our Own Divisional ? — -Boards. ? In the first article on the Communes I endeavoured to draw a rough picture of the settlements of our fathers in the days when men were really free. History proves abundantly that the communal fornLof settlement and government is the only form which can resist successfully the tendency of one class to tyrannise over tne mass, whether such tyrapny takes the form of feudalism, or capitalistic production. This latter, I take it, is but feudalism adapted- to the conditions of modern in dustry. The lord of the manor has developed into the big manufacturer, or joint stock company ; ch~B dependents, or' vassals of the lord, who could only earn a living by tilling the lord's land were the -=a3oanterparfe~of the wage-^avpiw-of-toniay: dependent for an existence upon the capital of the manufacturer. History asserts with no uncertain voice that the old communes alone withstood the march of tyranny. Hence it was that the who...

BYSTANDER'S NOTEBOOK [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 27 August 1892

BYSTANDER'S NOTEBOOK — ? r— ♦ ? M'Tlwraitb's financial statement is a terrible satire- upon any reasonably fair ? . ? ninria nf taxation. -After t»\tvo confessing that the chief YOC AJfn WE. cause of depression in i^unruuauu w»a one \ajui' mon colonial fault of over-borrowing, and that theMabour troubles were, after all, only a species of aggravation— a very ? different_tale from that which we heard before— he emphasises the point by giving the real culprit, the land-grabbers who did all the mischief, a free pass through his Gustom Bouse and .deliberately j)Uing the agony onto the heads of the workers. Tour city landlord, your pastoral freeholder, your corner allotment man, escapes without a scratch.

Great Nemesis hath fixed her armour, And thrown aside your so called "law;" She cometh now to wipe out records In an avalanche of war. Arouse ye, workers ! strike for freedom ! Ab they did in days of yore, Better now to die for Justice, Than live a slave for evermore. In the Old World and the New one Ten million earnest voices blend : — ' We want Justice ! we'll have Justice ! ' Are the shouts that now ascend. ' No more we'll starve whilst others revel! We feel our strength ! we'll win or die ! Humanity our only standard, ' The Earth for all ' our battle cry,' Cheer up, mothers ! stand firm, brothers !

? THE PARADISE OP THE WOHKINQMAN. The paradise of the workiuguiiu iu what Australia has been called by a wolloon ditioned gentleman who drew several thou sand pounds yearly for carefully explaining away the truths which Jesus the carpenter taught for nothing.

A Manager's Confession. MrrW. F. Aplin, who is inohargeof the Combe Martin shearing shed, writes to set Mi, Jackson) secretary to the second Strike Committee, right as to an unimportant fact in his letter published1 in the WoftK.HK of -the 13th August describing how he had bean victimised at Combe Martin : and in doing so Mr. Aplin admits the substance of the charge against him with delightful frankness. He says : Mr. Jackson has not quite stated facts. He asked me if I had a v jant stand. I 6aidr~'Yes; are you a machine shearer?'' Reply, 'Yes.' r-What is your name?' 'Jackson.' I then informed him that I could nob put him on. Mr. Jackson would haveyour readers believe that I promised hiua a ai&nd, but on learning his name I told him that I could not give him employ ment. Reference to Mr. Jackson's letter makes it clear that his only complaint against the TTumnffftr of the shed was that he had victimised him. He did not complain that he~had ' broken his promise.'

JUDGE HARDING AN UNJUST JUDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 3 September 1892

JUDGE HARDING AN UNJUST JUDGE. Judge Harding may be an honest judge and because he may be we should say that he is, in the absence of evidence to the con trary. But however honest he may be, and however we may recognise that his very exhibitions of bias prove the honesty that does notwnoeal itsjnner thought, yet ments of judgeship, is not honest only. There are certain qualities converging in the idea we call justice and .certain equiva lent faculties essential to a just judge— and ^f^hese faculties the power to approach a case with an unbiased mind, to keep the scales of justice freed from the weight of anything not in evidence, to keep ever in view that just as every man is innocent till proved guilty so every act of a man is to be interpreted favourably till shown to be criminal, is the greatest. This faculty Judge mrmng, besting mm Dy tne jkock hampton trials, absolutely lacks and it is this lacking, doubtless natural to him, which makes him an unjust judge.

Station Mail Bags. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 3 September 1892

Station Mail Bags. There are some relations of life that war itself holds dear. The red cross ^uttere-aboveThem, and~no man unless he had the spirit of a dog would, even in the heat of oonfliot, level a shot their way. These points of contact differ, of course. with varying circumstances. In the city one would do things for an opponent that one would not need to do in the bush ; but after all it is in the bush that one realises especially that there are good turns that it is everybody's interest to do for everybody else quite apart from tho side he is on. Carrying a message or perhaps a letter from a postal town to a station through which a man happens to be passing, for example, doesn't cost much and cuts both ways. Squatters have generally allowed letters for uieiOhed'hauuB to be conveyed along with their own private correspond ence in the station mail bag. It has involved no extra trouble and where the postal town is a long way off has been the only means 'by which a shearer can ...
