MAKING GERMANY PAY. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 19 April 1919

MAKING GERMANY PAY. If any reliance at all could be placed on the cable news which is served up to s day by day in the Capitalist Press, there would appear to be absolutely no cause for anxiety regarding the future taxation in the Entente countries. Months ago we were assured, times without number, on the authority of re sponsible public men, that Germany would be compelled to pay the greater part of the costs of the war. By many at the time, this was regarded very largely as election dope; evidently this view was not correct, as within the last few days the cables have brought us the follow ing:— 'THE SUPREME COUNCIL HAS DE CIDED TO DEMAND £1,000,000,000 dur ing 1919-1920, leaving a permanent com mission to fix the annual payments.' A SORDID GAME. Then, as if the correspondent had sud denly recollected that the Great War had been fought for the 'Liberty of the World,' and other great and noble ob jects, but certainly NOT for the aggran disement of the victors, by indemnities or oth...

The opening of the Sinn Fein Congress i— the Independent Parliament of Ireland r- is a melancholy testimony to the DIS HONESTY OP BRITISH MINISTERS . who, by their deliberate failure to keep their pledged word, have forced the Irish ' into their present position. In order that - a just and equitable arrangement be ' . tween the two countries be arrived at, it Is essential that politics should be PURGED OP THAT CORRUPTION which has eaten into its very vitals. ONCE A MINISTRY OP HONEST MEN were IN POWER in ENGLAND the Irish problem could, ~ without difficulty, be solved. AT THE PRESENT MOMENT THERE IS NO HOPE OP SUCH A MIRACLE.

The Snobbery of the Tory Press. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 19 April 1919

^ ? The Snobbery of the Tory Press. The 'Evening News' (Sydney) recently devoted over six inches of space to an obituary notice of a titled blackguard called Earl Cowley. The excuse for this grovel on the part of the 'News' was that the dead lord was stated to be a 'descendant of the Iron Duke'— the Duke of Wellington. However, it turns out that he was the great-grandson of a younger brother of the Duke of Wellington, and how a man can be the 'descendant' of his thrice re moved uncle is known only to the Chief Snob on the 'News' staff. However, this left-handed 'descendant' of the old 'dook' had descended so far that the old chap's coffined dust must turn pink with shame at the relationship. This gallant member of England's 'old nobility' died, aged 53, as a result of fast living and excessive matrimony. Earl Cowley had three wives. The first one divorced him for being too fond of the second, whose first hus band also divorced her. Then the': second one (being: a divorced woman hers...

The Editor, "Labor News." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 19 April 1919

The Editor, 'Labor News.' Sir, — In view of the impending elections, both State and Federal, and. the necessary education of the electors in Labor ideals, I wish to draw attention to the fact that in country electorates a great many voters whose support is needed to insure the success of Labor are small farmers, whose interest coincide with those of the trade unionists, but who mistrust the Move manf As a farmer myself, and the president of a small branch of the A.L. Party, I think it would be advisable if as much space in the 'Labor News' as possible was made available for articles dealing with the interests of the small farmer. It would tend to attract many of those who now support the National Party to the ranks of Labor. Unfortunately it is a fact that many country seats are held by our opponents which by the right of the number of workers within their boundaries should be represented by Labor members. It is mostly due to these farmers who are toilers themselves that this is so....

THE OUTLOOK AND THE REMEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 19 April 1919

THE. OUTLOOK AND THE REMEDY. The industrial outlook is decidedly gloomy, and with the approach of winter and the ravages of the influenza scourge to add to the general depression, bad times ahead are inevitable under the pre sent incompetent regime. The arrival of returning soldiers by many thousands each month intensifies the unemployment problem, and already much dire poverty, and even destitution, exists in our midst. In Great Britain, America, and in many other countries Government action has compelled the granting of important con cessions in wages and hours to thousands of workers striking for Improved con ditions. In every case these concessions have been made through fear of revolution. This, of itself, is a tremendous testimony to the world-wide beneficial effects of the Russian Communist Revolution. The Capitalist orators and tied news paper press have painted their Bolshevik ogre with so many coats of vermilion atrocities, laid on with the brush of men dacity, that at las...

From an Address Delivered Before the Working Men's Institute at Camberwell. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 19 April 1919

From an Address Delivered Before the Working Men's Institute at Camberwell. 'For observe what the real fact is, re specting loans to foreign military Go vernments, and how strange it is. If your little boy came to you to ask for money to spend In squibs and crackers you would think twice before you gave it him, and you would have some idea that it was wasted when you saw it fly off in fireworks, even though he did no mischief with it. But the Russian children and the Austrian children come to you, bor rowing money not- to spend in innocent squibs, but in cartridges and bayonets to attack you in India with, and to keep down all noble life in Italy with, And to murder Polish women and children with; and THAT you will give at once, BE CAUSE THBTC PAT YOU INTEREST FOR IT. Now, In order to pay that in terest, they must tax every working pea sant in their dominions; and on that work you live. You therefore at once rob the Austrian peasant, assassinate or banish the Polish pea sant, and yo...

EDITORIAL. THE COLLAPSE OF CAPITALISM. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 19 April 1919

EDITORIAL. THE COLLAPSE OF CAPITALISM. The industrial position all over the world is in an extremely disturbed condi tion, from which it cannot possibly re cover for a considerable time. The war, of course, stopped or suspended many in dustries, and created hundreds of new ones to meet war requirements. Then, again, the progress of hostilities shifted the base for the growth and manufacture of many commodities from one country to another, in addition to which it largely paralysed mercantile shipping, thereby compelling many communities to estab lish factories for the production of goods hitherto imported. Then, again, the shift ing of millions of men from their homes and concentrating them in various foreign lands, and their gradual repatriation since the war ceased, has accentuated all exist ing problems, and added to the general dislocation and confusion. It is well known that the tremendous rise in prices of all commodities, while largely due to scarcity through the with drawal o...

THE NEW MEAT BOARD. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 19 April 1919

THE NEW MEAT BOARD. The Government's decision to reconsti tute the Meat Board, and in so doing put into operation a new scheme, which will at the same time secure the stock-raisers better prices and the public cheaper meat, is another of those catchpenny devices in tended to throw dust in the eyes of the people for purely political purposes. Even its chief apostles have been al ready forced to admit that it will not make much difference in the price of meat, but may effect some economies in the working1 of that costly white elephant, the State Abattoirs, and for this micro scopic reform we are expected to be grateful.

THE COAL CRISIS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 19 April 1919

THE COAL CRISIS. The coalowners, at the invitation of the Federal Acting Prime Minister, have met and conferred with the coalminers, and have, it is reported, come to an under standing by which it is said the miners are to receive a substantial rise in wages. The terms have not yet been made public, but it is rumored that the coalowners are to increase the price of coal, and so pass their additional wage cost on to the public. The State Government professes to be alarmed at the prospect of having to meet the additional charge . for coal on some million tons consumed annually by the State railways, and proposes to appoint yet another Commission to inquire into the whole question of the coal-mining in dustry. Of course, this Ministry of seven lawyers had to bring more grist to the professional mill by giving the job, with fat fees, to a member of the Devil'a Brigade, and so we are governed and bled. The coal question, like every industrial matter, is bound up with the whole obso lete ...
