His position is wholly different from that of the man who looks upon the institutions around him as capable of reformation. He is, indeed, hardly a reformer at all in the ordinary sense of the word. As he sees, society it u past reform, and nothing but sheer hypo crisy could lead him to palter with it.

THE BROKEN HILL STRIKE. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 17 September 1892

THE BROKEN HILL STRIKE. The men on the Barrier stand out as -ten1yHB~-i5y8r-rir^^ broken agreements and freedom of contract. By the granting of exemptions the N.S.W. Government has done its beBt to smash up the strike but so far -without the least success. When a party of blacklegs arrived last week from Melbourne in the care of a hundred Sydney policemen there was an unmistakably hostile demonstration, and as a consequence further reinforcements of police have been sent along with threats that the men may yet have to count upon the presence of the military. The most significant incident in the whole affair was 'the point~biankr«fusataf the S.A. Govern ment (in the face of a general election) to help the police and blacklegs on to the mines.

THE SHIPPING TROUBLE. Owners Back Down and Avert a Big Strike. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 17 September 1892

THE SHIPPING TROUBLE. Owner* Baok Dowpand Avert a Big a truce. Toioufa'^BiJi»mpt-'aotioii~-of-'-the':iwa-' men and the good sense of the principal chipping companies a gigantic maritime strike has been averted. Had it been otherwise it would have been through no jftult of the unions, for without a moment's notice the seamen, firemen, 'trimmers', crrftasers and donkeymen employed on the boats were confronted with a wholesale reduction of wages. That there was no necessity for the reduction was clear from the statements of representatives of some of the shipping companies published in the Melbourne papers a month or two back, as well as from the action of the companies when confronted with the firm attitude of the men in determining to resist not only a ffhnlflaale reduction of wages, but an attack on the eight-hour day, for itr is now an open secret in Sydney that articles were made out in which the eight hour iu port day was extended to ten.

THINGS VARIOUS. Small Tradesmen and tbe Labour Mftvament. C. W.

By for the greater number of ' item have only recently emerged from the posittofof wagB^laves, and aro wen now as much the slaveB of the big capitalist as they were before of their employers. What have (hey to gain by opposing the Movement, 'sor even remaining inactive? They depend almost entirely upon wage earners for their^ living. Scarcity of employment means loss of custom to the shopkeeper, or what iB worse, a large amount of credit, so thafhe is worried con tinually as to how-to meet Jiisjbills, and is often worse off than the vvage^earnere themselves, because having entered the grand competitive world, he is not able lik© theuhopkeeper in the good old days to make his customers pay extra for credit.

Shop Early. DAVID SEYMOUR WRITES: [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 24 September 1892

Shop Early. UAVTO ^KYSKHJfi-WKITES-: ? At last through weary waiting and weary work we have gained a concession. What concession ? One hour per week, thanks to the Early Closing Association, and that is indeed to me and many hundreds of others a most acceptable gift. It is admitted on all sides — even by our employers — that our hours are slavish and hurtful to health and happiness. Yet the majority of the busi ness men who keep their shops open late are leading lights in our churches, and as such their aim should be to do good to all — even to their employes. Why. surely in detd these Christ followers ought to be agitating for the overthrow of the wrong and not the shop assistants. They say, however, that we ourselves are to blame; that it is our own class who are our worst enemies. 'Tis, and sorry I am to admit it. It is the working classes who force late hours upon us, but the error of the un enlightened is no excuse for the wrong doing of these preachers of humanity. Then I fear...

"Placement": In Reply to "Lucinda Sharpe." D. STEVENSON, KALLARA STATION, RIVER DARLING, WRITES: [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 24 September 1892

'Placement': Zn Reply to 'Lucinda Sharpe.' D.

Neither I, the alleged ' young man from Wagga,' nor any other individual I have heard or read of on this subject, affect to believe that 'placement' is the highest form of union between men and women. To paraphrase your fair correspondent, one ' doesn't need to go to' Brisbane to know that the purest ' ideal of morality is love.' ' Everybody knows that, who knows any thing anywhere.' What some people don't know, however, is that the vaBt majority of us are neither saints nor devils ; we are commonplace sort of individuals without the capacity for feeling an all absorbing, never-ending passion. We understand dimly that there is such a sentiment in existence as perfect aud ever lasting love, but we can't ' live up to it.' I like...
