Another Snake Yarn. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 1 October 1892

Another Snake Yarn. The shed overseer at Emudilla (Q.) told the fhearers' chairman that on no account muse shearers go into the shed after dark as he had heard that some one intended to burn it down. Tho shearers, fifty in num ber rolled up to tind out who the 'some one 'was and how he {the shed overseer) haA Got-the information. It then tran spired that a special (another name for an Australian Pinkerton) had heard two men speaking together iu the dark in a paddock. They were talking about some shed. He didn't know if it was Emudilla ; didn't -know if they were shearers or labourers engaged at the shod, or merely travellers ; didn't even know if they were going to burn any shed or only thought some shed ought to belnirht. ^Evidently another poisoned apple yarn. Still it was good enough to cast a slur on fifty unionists on the off chance that it might fit some one, and if it didn't, what matter? Workers aren't sup posed to be sensitive-tnrtuch a point. However, in the end, the overs...

? TfllNOSHfAWOUS. ! A N.S.W. Pollticiaa Talks Straight. Reid, the leader of the Opposition in the Sydney Parliament, talked straight the other night when he said: They all knew that a man fighting a hattlejrithjmeana behuid him could always fieot longer and barker flian a man with «£-]] means.

Griffith on Payment of Members. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 1 October 1892

Griffith on ffayment oMtombera. In cutting MM.L.A.'fl salaries down to £150 a year with the avowed object of starving out the Labour members, Griffith said: I think a general imnpftwrinw h^ utuer pares oi Australia, that JSSOO a Utb/r it too much.

A Novel Idea in Parliaments. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 1 October 1892

A Novel Mea In Parliaments. Writing from Charters Towers, where no less than 1050 names have been struck oS the electoral rolls, a correspondent who does not believe in half-measures says : Some men are talking of blocking all voting at the general election if they are^ not again placed on the lists. My notion is that if the Government persists in dis franchising its opponents no Labour man ought to take any interest in the general elections at all, but instead let us call a National Convention, elected on a one { man-cne-vote basis, representing every ' constituency in the colony, and give such convention full power to act in any matter they thought fit to preserve the life and liberties of the people, both of which are no doubt ic danger. The chances are that such delegates would be at once arrested. However, that would be a small matter in comparison with the knock it would give The divinity of parliamentaryism. If the A.L.F. has grit it will immediately sound every electorate on...

How different with the Moonta directors when they had to face a strike. They knew that the men's patience would give way before their mine broke down. The latest telegrams talk of tbe engagement of 250 unemployed in the Southern capital at 8*. 4d. a day, or 45s. lOi. a week. If this is true what becomes of the directors' statement about not reducing wages ? In the-pastrthe-rate-was-£3-per wook.

Queensland Union Prisoners Still in Gaol. BYGONES NOT YET BYGONES. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 1 October 1892

in GaoL BYGONES NOT TET BYGONES. Again it Is well to remind Australian workers that their mates who stood up so fearlessly for unionism during the bush strike, and who were so vindictively sentenced by a judge who yielded to capi talistic clamour during a period of excite ment, are still gaoled by the Griffilwraith in spite o? the justness of the claim for an honourable release, and the monster petition which has boen so cruelly ignored. The bare mention of their names aud the out-of-all-reason-ssntences*' lor alleged of fencds — now that Jbygones are bygones to everybody but theGoveruinent — will'send' a thrill through the breast o.f every honest man and woman in Queensland ; and help them —if further evidence is necessary— to realise the callousness of the Govern ment in their determined resistance to the welfare of the masses. Indeed, as everybody knows, the real crime for- which the union meu are suffering to-day is rebellion against the iujut* Lam aud tyranny, -fcho thoft and m...

BYSTANDER'S NOTEBOOK [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 1 October 1892

BYSTANDER'S NOTEBOOK ? nn M''^»y fr^ counterpart of what is known as the Mooraree tragedy was enacted in Brisbane the Gaol. The first crime ? BOnnn-itoAD gaol was perpetrated by a tbageoy. semi-insane youth whose instinctive criminality or inherited thirst) lor murder was a sur vival/of prehistoric times when the cave man 'sallied forth and slayed his victim with a piece of rough flint and as ho had no pockets to rifle sucked the spinal mar row in satisfaction of the acb. The youth Horrocks was unquestionably one of those unfortunates called by scientists ' a rever sion to an early progenitor,' and whose actual parentage must be looked for far back in the brutal past. Wibh this in stinctive criminality coursing through his veins, blind to all human feeling that every he »lthy mau eujoys, he lured the unsus pecting Weissmuller— new to the country and full of trust and hope for the future— into a lonely suburb and there foully took his life.

THE EDITORIAL MILL. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 1 October 1892

THE EDITORIAL MILL Perhaps in the long ran the immediate success of a strike is its least important re* suit. In the caee of the great maritime strike, of course, we all admit that defeat was a blessintr in disguise. And whilst we know that a victory lor the men at Broken Hill will mean a substantial advantage to ikA the workers, and apart from that a clear ^fjriumph for truth and right, we cannot overlook the good that the strike itself will do under any circumstances. As a stimulus to thought and an object lesson in the ways of Capitalism it cannot possibly fail. Look at the kind of opposition we have to en counter. It is the same all the world over. The march against monopoly is obstructed by walls of so-called fact. They tower high above^ur-heads ; they-sbut-out-the^ life of heaven ; to our dimmed eyes they look like solid masonry ; and it is not until we have torn them down and burned them that we are able to prove them in reality nothing bat paint and paper— sham walls at the ...
