GOOD AND SUFFICIENT RATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 31 August 1910

GOOD AND SUFFICIENT . RATIONS. Dear Worker: I would like to bring under notice through the columns, of our journal one particular loop-hole in shed hands' agreements, viz., good and suf ficient rations. Can you enlighten me as to what constitutes 'good and sufficient'? Trouble was narrowly averted during the present shearing at Iliilawa. The lads plied, asked for jam and sauce for the table, and met with an absolute refusal. A meeting was held, and all hands decided to stand out until some concessions were made, with the following result — 6 -tins of jam per week among 21 hands and an occasional bottle of sauce. Certainly there was sufficient meat, black sugar, brownie, and cabbage and potatoes, but not enough variety. .1 am not in any way reflecting on the ability of our cot-k, as the lunches sent to the shed were evident proof of his ability. In my opinion there should be some fixed ? standard.— 15029, Central Branch. . [This is a matter that has occasioned a great deal of dissati...

LAND FOR LAND SEEKERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 31 August 1910

! LAND FOB LAUD SEEKERS. 'Willing' Settler'' states an obvious fact: — 'lam pretty confident that a policy embracing a sound land proposal _for plac ing bona-fide persons on the land who ara without means, will- capture a big vote for Labor.'. And makes a suggestion:— 'When a man wishes to make a home on the land he would make application- to the Govern ment for an available block, at the same 'time producing satisfactory evidence that he was, or would be, capable of develop ing the block to the benefit of himself and State. On receipt of this, he should be supplied with necessary form to fill in, showing all particulars needed. On the block being confirmed to him, he would be credited with a certain sum in the State Bank (say, £200), to enable him to improve and develop it. This to enable hi mto provide machinery, stock, and the like. In the event of group settlement, much machinery and the like would not be needed to such an extent, because they could nse each other's for a while....

IMPORTANT NOTICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 31 August 1910

jWQRTANT NOTICE, The State elections for N.S.W. will take place not later, and probably somewhat earlier, than the middle of October next. As large numbers of electors following the shearing industry will be absent from their electorates then, I would strongly urge all such who have already made en gagements covering that period, or who can now say in what electorates they ex pect to be in about that time, to at once communicate with me, so that early steps can be taken to have special polling booths proclaimed in the electorates they are going to, to enable them to record their votes. They will need to supply full particulai's of their names and addresses, the electorates for which they are en rolled, and also, where possible, specify the names of the stations they will be at, and where they have no such engagement the electorates they purpose being in at that time. v . . Much can be done in his, way to mini mise the wholesale disfranchisement which will otherwise take place under ...

SHEARING IN NEW ZEALAND. ? i PROSPECTS OF AWARDS. ?? The dispute in the shearing industry in New Zealand has not reached any new staffe but the passing .of some corres pondence between Mr. . Laracy, the Gen eral Secretary of .the -Union, and Mr. Jus tice Sim, of the Arbitration Court, has *..miqhed pome interesting sidelights on the attitude of the latter worthy towards the Union. In connection with the shed '. -liana's' case, the employers at .the hearing before the Conciliation Commissioners, stated that they would oppose any award whatever being made to decide the shed .'hands' working conditions. Mr. Laracy 'then wrote to Mr. Justice Sim, asking whether the Arbitration Court would be certain to make air award, as otherwise., it would be useless going to* the trouble and expense of preparing a case. His Honor replied that he was 'unable to pre dict what the. Arbitration Court would do; whether an award should or^not be made would depend on the facts and ar guments placed before t...

THE CONTROL OF COUNTRY HOSPITALS. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 31 August 1910

THE CONTROL OF COUNTRY HOSPITALS. Dear Worker, — Having read your splen did article on the control of country hos pjtals- (Worker, Aug. 17), and your advice to A\W.U. members contained therein, I should like to have an expression of opin ion1 from members during the coming sea son on;, this all-important subject. While quite .agreeing that something must be done to' alter the present unsatisfactory state of affairs, I would recommend for members' consideration a scheme which was published in- the Worker on October 20, of last year, and had quite slipped my memory until I read-your article. - ? The scheme, suggested by B. Jordan, was that 'instead of the stations, taking up the collections as at present, the Union ?should'strike a yearly hospital levy of, say, 2/- a membeiy and make such ar rangements with the hospital authorities whereby a sick member on arriving -at a hospital and presenting his Union ticket would gain ready admission to that hospital.'

THE LABOR DAILY HOW SHALL IT BE OWNED? [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 31 August 1910

TKE LABOR DAILY HOW SHALL IT BE OWNED? Some members have been inquiring whether it is intended that the proposed Lkbor Daily shall be based upon shares issued to individuals or'jvhefher it shall be Union-owned and controlled. The answer is that it will be Union owned and controlled. To give the other Unions a chance to come in it is imperative that the scheme shall be based, upon company lines. Com pany law requires that a certain number of persons shall join together to enable a company to be formed in the first in stance. To comply with this law it has been decided that a certain number of approved persons may come in as founda tion members. The total amount of cash they may pay in only amounts to £100 out of a total of £100,000, and the voting power is based on the money paid in, so that it should be clear they will not have the slightest power to influence the con trol which the Unions, for whom are reserved ' the £99,900 worth of shares, will have over the paper.
