THE EDITORIAL MILL. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 24 September 1892

THE 60IT0R1AL MILL The one thing that above all others the leaden of New Unionism have striven to teach is that social wrongs are no mere ac cident. Two and two, added together, tn»kft four, wnA *m, wWr 'nimiropfanmi) amount to nve. So in the problem of wealth distribution, as long as a few men own the Burf ace of the earth, and the mate rials beneath it, bo long wiU they be able to levy blackmail upon everybody eke, and so long will everybody else have to Bell his labour for just what it will fetch in the open market, quite irrespective of what it irould be worth to the man himself if there were no tuck-renting landlord to keep him from applying it direct to the soil. One does not mean, of course, that all men would torn farmers^or that all, or even the majority, of New Unionist leaders think that the nationalising of the land is til th*Ml if ffTy fri oHtTiifuinatxy nprwi ft fair basis, though every thorough-going re former admits that land monopoly is one of the most, if not the m...

The Christian Squatter. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 24 September 1892

The Christian Squatter. His children all were taught to pray, Give us our daily bread this day ; As for shearers—well, you may     Let them have bread and water. His wife would pray : Oh Lord, you know They need but little here below. Her Christian name was Sarah, though He called her "Sal"—'twas shorter.   This pious woman stood aghast When once her husband uttered vast And woeful oaths like hang and blast Each union man and shearer. "They work for less in Fatherland   And fourteen hours a day they'll stand, To swell the purse of lordlings grand, Though living there is dearer. "With Christian wrath my bosom fills, I'll find a balm for all my ills, So with " Gawd's" help I'll salt my bills And make them pay me double.   I'll only charge them cent per cent On goods supplied or money lent ; I err, oh Lord, with good intent To end this dreadful trouble.

LABOUR VERSE. IF YOU WERE GOD. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 24 September 1892

LABOUR VERSE. IF YOU WERE GOD. What would you do if yon were God ? And from a throne on high Could see how earthly creatures fare With an all-seeing eye ? If you could see yon courtesan         In rich and rare attire         Drive by in handsome equipage Bought with her body's hire ; And then could trace her history Back to a wretched home   Where want is never absent, Where comforts never come ; Could see her toiling at her work In suffocating shop To earn a meagre pittance Her hunger's pangs to stop ; Could see her in the factory Wlien forced to sell her soul To keep her name among the rest Upon the foreman's roll ; Could see her when in her despair She throws by all restraint And chooses rather sinful ease Than be a starving saint—   If you were God, I say, and knew That woman's story all, On whose head would the fury, then, Of righteous judgment fall...

The Sydney "Bulletin" and the New Australia Movement. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 24 September 1892

The Sydney "Bulletin" and the New Australia Movement.     GILBERT CASKY WHITES : If it is true, as the Bulletin man says, that the Argentine scheme 'is an ig nominious bolt ;' if it is true, as he asserts, that it is ' treason to, and base desertion of the cause of Liberty ;' and if it is also ' a confession Of defeat,' how can he style — the New Australia men the 'very best and most enterprising members ot ^the Queensland Democracy ? ' How can he speak of them as *' the bone and muscle of the nation ? ' And if they are, as he says, ' the strongest section of the community,' what sort of a mass of fermenting weak ness, drivel, and imbecility, must the re maining portion be? Surely the Bulletin uiau dues nut niuati to' insult the yueenB -land people, and yet one is puzzled to knoyy what other interpretation to place upon hiB words.

Elbowed Out. 'Pain! Pain! Pain!' The voice of the 6tck man swelled each word until it filled the house and burst like the distended carcase of a word in the still night air beyond. Thud! Thnd ! Thud! The hearts scarce beating at the bedside. And then, with the strength of a crucifixion agony, the cry, ' My God ! What have I done to deserve this suffering?' It was almost the only thought of self that found utterance in those four long days and nights of final anguish. But once again, and then in softer tones, he pleads, ' Is there no one that will help a poor little medical, surgical student? In his de lirium he lived again the old London life.
