Brisbane Trades Ball. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 3 September 1892

Brisbane Trades Hall. The TradeB-HaH-8taads like a mamrith his halt pit asking neip trom everyone wUo passes by. The only thing is that our brick ana mortar man in Tufbot-street is not going bareheaded out of politeness ; he has no hat— he is tileless and roofless. And that is the trouble. It would cost about £2500 to complete the building but that is out of the -question just now, and the Board of Management being anxious to make the place at all events waterproof and fit to hold meetings in are considering whether it would not be possible to finish it temporarily at a very much smaller expense. With that object in view they -sxe_ssliting on foet a movement for raising mon^y ii BriRhaneand have sent a package of circulars explaining how things stand and asking for assistance to each of the country organisers. The Trades Hall has been, so to speak, 'hung up' 6ince 1886 when Dutton, who was then Minister for Lands, promised a site for the building, but went out of office without actu...

THE EDITORIAL MILL. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 3 September 1892

THE EDITORIAL MILL Whichever way the strike at Broken Hill may go the Queensland Unionists will always have the satisfaction of looking hnnlr npnn it n« a Wflll fought hnhtla fro? ft principle that ia worth well fighting for. That principle is Unionism. We ^rotr badly beaten over the Maritime strike, but I have yet to meet the man who is not glad that he had a hand in it or who would act otherwise if the question had to be fought, under similar oonditiouB, over again. That was the biggest fight for Unionism that the world has seen. It was the first shot fired in Australia for the New Unionism. Then came the Queensland Bush strike— for New Unionism too. The Broken Hill strike, is animated by the same spirit of uncom promising reason. 'The leaders are all Socialists 'the papers cry. ._ _V ..The leaders are looking forward to the opening of Par -liament in fee hopo that tho Labour Party will squeeze the Government into forcing the hands of the directors.'

FRAGMENTS THAT REMAIN. Odds and Ends From a "Worker" Pigeon-Hode. THE RIVER IN FLOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 3 September 1892

FRAGMENTS THAT REMAIN. Odder and Ends Worn a 'Worker' THE BIVKB lif FLOOD. It was intensely hot. To the west the sun hung in the summer sky, poiwd for its downward falL Seaward a vast clojd mass towered, purple-blaok beneath but rising through grays and whites into heaven-piercing peaks that the magic sun beams tinted with gold. A steaming mist exhaled faintly from the panting earth and the eides of iho vassaLa that tucced and strained at their buoys in mid-streams fairly glistened as if with utter exhaustion. The smoke of the foundry opposite sank upon the water ; the very rumbling of the tram cars wae an articulate protest against the stifling heat. Only the river disdained to slumber. It was covered with circling eddies and, mudladen, refused to 'be any thing but sullen and strong. * * * For the river was rising. It had run a banker five hours before and still forced its way downward over the top of the rising tide.' ltrbrought~gTe&t ~iogs-witlrhnand-'a- masts ora-3bris; ...

THE BROKEN HILL STRIKE. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 3 September 1892

THE BROKEN HILL STRIKE. — ? — - ? — TlH-iriiHeBTPere~MTe=openedJ'-on-the55th- AuguBt, but it was a ' re-opening' merely in name. The day's proceedings were a farce. Forty men, all told, went down to work and almost the entire j-toppjation of Broken mil— tne -seeona^iarjBreBt town 01 N. S. Wales— stood by in sullen deter mination to see the struggle through. It was, of course, a bitter disappointment to the directors, who -naturally expected to gain recruits no5 in tens, but in hundreds. And nothing that has happened since has been calculated to raise their spirits very much. For the thousands of men who are fighting as lustily as ever a paltry hundred and sixty, according to estimates most likely to oe~favoara61e~toTihe^mpluy«iti, had on Monday found their way back to the Proprietary mine. The day of the 'reopening,' however, was, as we all know, a time of excitement not only at Broken Hill but throughout ^A-ustraha, and particularly in Sydney, where Ministers appear to have been si...

LABOUR AND THE LAW. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 3 September 1892

LABOUR AND THE LAW. There is nothing sacred about mere Law — nothing. The sooner we understand that the better for us all. The only thing that is sacred is Justice, meaning by Jus tice the judgment which satisfies the TTnYvmYii+.tr «Tif.V»in no T+. nrcio .Tuat.ina which spoke when the- Christ bade the woman taken in adultery to go and sin no more. We mix up Mercy and Justice, Forgiveness and the Law of Retaliation, and we speak of this ^reat teaching of the -grant, tflaiihpT bh if. it were only from the overflowing love of a loving heart that it came ; yet ib was Justice, neither more nor less, for there were none without sin among all the sinful one's accusers to fling the first stone. Meroy is in reality only that. oonBoiousneas of our own shbrb-oomtng^ whioh enables ua to treat the Bhorb-oominga of others as we would have others treat ours— and that is JuBtioe.

A Voice from Thursday Island. R. N. EVANS, OF THURSDAY ISLAND, SAYS: [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 3 September 1892

A Voice from Thursday Island. It. N. EVANS, OF THURSDAY ISLAND, HAYS : There are Kanakas employed here in the stores, on the wharves, and everywhere where they can be placed. Burns, Philp have no less than twenty-seven of them en gaged in their timber yard, their store, and on the wharf; while there are any number   of white men looking round for a job. Another thing worthy of comment is the open violation of the Act for the pro hibition of the sale of liquors to Poly nesians. Day after day drunks are brought before the resident magistrate, and all he does is to fine the offender. Not one word is said about the publican who sells the grog. It has come to such a pitch that publicans openly and boldly tell the public that they do not care if a white man never comes near their houses, and until quite recently it was utterly impossible to get accommodation at any price. The quan tity of intoxicants drunk on Thursday Island is very large and nine-tenths is sold to aboriginal...

In addition to this, wharf labourers are threatened with having all overtime cut, the eight hour day overthrown anfd a'ten hours day rung in on them without any conference or chance of consultation whatsoever.
