War Prisoners in Germany. RUHLEBEN CAMP. EX-PRISONER TELLS THE TRUTH. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 12 April 1919

War Prisoners in Germany. RUHLEBEN CAMP. EX-PRISONER TELLS THE TRUTH. For over four years the mention of Kuhleben camp has conjured up to the public mind a picture of inhuman bar barity. Mothers whose sons were taken prisoner and sent to Ruhleben have been fed with gruesome stories of treatment received at the hands of the enemy. Now, an ex-prisoner, one of the men of the captured Matunga. has arrived back home, and tells a vastly different story which does not tally in the least with all the horrors that have been heaped upon us during four anxious years. We have been assiduously told that an Englishman is the pet aversion of a Ger man. Also it has been continuously and persistently dinned into our ears that Ruh leben camp was the special domicile of Englishmen in Germany. Assuming that that is so, the story- of Mr. McEnnally, told at Kogarah last Sat urday, indicates that the treatment of prisoners other than English must have been quite luxurious. Mr. McEnnally said Ruhleben camp...

INDUSTRIAL CO-OPERATION. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 12 April 1919

INDUSTRIAL CO-OPERATION. Industrial co-operation1 proposes that the entire control of the business shall be in the hands of the workers themselves, and that the whole of the profits shall be at the disposal of the workers engaged in the co-operative business. . * mm INDUSTRIAL CO-OPERATION IS ES SENTIALLY A WORKING - CLASS IDEAL. The main ideas underlying it are: (1) That the employer is an un necessary encumbrance; (2) that control ought to rest with the workmen; (&) that the receipt of wages is inconsistent with the dignity of labor; (4)' that the exclu sion of the workmen from participation in profits is a flagrant injustice; and (5) that if THE WORKMEN CAN GET INTO THEIR OWN HANDS THE PROFITS pF THE BUSINESS in which they are engaged, -their financial position will be immensely unproved. * # . ? - - ; . industrial co-operation proposes that the working classes shall seek salvation by eliminating from commerce and manu facture the interference of the* super fluous middle ...

FOR PROFIT OR USE-WHICH? PROFIT-SHARING. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 12 April 1919

[?] PROFIT:SHARING. ' Profit-sharing is . a device adopted by employers to increase production, and, while keeping the control of the business in their own hands, to give to the work ers A PART ONLY of the profits of the business. ' As a matter of fact, profit-sharing is very frequently not profit-sharing at all; but profit-snaring! # . * ' # By the giving of a bonus, awarded for' extra output, men are induced to work ex ceptionally hard, and to produce a much greater quantity. » « * ; This simply means that they are paid a slightly higher wage for doing a great deal more than the ordinary amount of work. # * *.

DREAMS OF GALILEE. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 12 April 1919

DREAMS OF GALILEE. Dim from the misty past, A dream is borne to me Of nets that fishers cast In blue, blue Galilee. or one lone youui wno troa A path with curses red, Nor won from man or God A place to lay his head. Of words a dreamer spoke, Forlorn with life's desire, That filled the world with smoke, And burned the chaff with fire. His name I hear to-day, I see his temples stand Where thousands kneel to pray About a godly land. I hear his- priests extol The thing he smote as sin, ; I hear them curse the goal He dreamed the world might win. I hear them chant his praise, A thin and fulsome song, While down the thronging ways The same old world goes wrong.. Yet, there comes back to me, When all my heart is still, A dream of crosses three Set on a sunlit hill. I hear his voice again By way of Galilee, I. feel the midnight pain Of dark Gethsemane. Ah, ringing, ringing still, Though all the world go wrong, His words my pulses thrill As with a marching song Beneath the grinding yoke, Sha...

Daughter's Letter Dear Mother,— [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 12 April 1919

« ' ' Dear Mother,— ; The .'flu is here again, and the city is as blue as I suppose London was under the Great Plague. Those who can afford it are running away; and those who cannot are just staying, caught in this, large, congested rat-trap of a city. You do live in a rat-trap when you select a city for your place of abode, you know; but the responsibility is on those who force you to make the 'selection. Of course, tli ere is much carelessness about in spite of the elaborate precautions which people are asked to take. It is a difficult disease; and, for my part, I think there should be one regulation sternly kept — that is: 'No one but the authorities shall talk about the epidemic.' The horrors some people can work up are just appalling. But very few of these scaremongers will help the nurses in an emergency. The nurses are . simply wonderful. I have met some of them on the way to nurse the nasty thing, or convalescing from an attack and getting ready to go back to it. Imagine it,...

A WORD ON WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 12 April 1919

A WORD ON WOMAN. I am interested in 'Woman partly, I suppose,* because I am a woman, but mainly because I am so much a man. Every woman is that, though slje would not admit it any more than a man would confess how much woman he is. I know I am mostly man because Iv am so thoroughly woman — that is to say, every time I begin to talk about Woman, I end in speaking of Man. I b'Heve wholly in woman's cause. I believe she should have equal chances with man, and admit, at the same time, that God gave man the better chance. ? Bernard Shaw says a wife should be beaten once a week. That' shows how thoroughly womanly Shaw is. No one but a woman would have thought of that. But, speaking of wives, they are the eternal evidence of Man's womanliness. Woman is said to have made the marriage law and custom to suit herself; but never believe it. Man made and invented the custom himself because he can never love more than one woma,n at a time, whereas it is woman's natural instinct to love many. Man ...
