Notoriety Hunting. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 8 October 1892

Notoriety Hunting. The Brisbane Courier says : 'A corres pondent sends us a telegram from Charters Towers with the information that the life of Mr. Peter AUdridge has been threatened by the Labour leaders for his persistently supporting Sir S. W. Griffith's policy in stead of the Labour platform. Mr. AU dridge, however, has publicly announced his determination to continue in his course, and to support-the^rovernment in uphold ing law and order.',' Precisely so ; but the Courier is unaware that the Pastoralists' Association is arranging the necessary details for the., assassination of John Burns when he visits Camooweal. This is due perhaps to the fact that tho Courier has no Camooweal correspondent. We are sur prised that a leading journal such as the Courier would-publish the silly babble of the most discredited political agitator in Queensland^ for no doubt Mr. Alldridge eent the telegram hiinsolf. He called in at this office and mentioned that jiis 'exter- mination' had been thre...

First a Crawl and then a Lie. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 8 October 1892

First a Crawl and then a Lie. One of the two Union Prisoners who did a craven-hearted crawl out of St. Helena (Q.) in June last came South and is now blacklegging on some freedom~~of contract station in New South Wales. On the strength of the lie that he 'sought assistance from his brother unionists, but was unable to obtain more than sufficient to pay his far* to' Sydney,' the squatters' organ, the Pastoralitts' Review, for Sep tember published, and the country papers reprint, in refutation of the charge that unionists are victimised by squatters this piece of intelligence and misstatement of fact: The charge of victimising prominent unionists has been frequently disproved -by— tire secretaries — of the TttstoralisBs* Unions, but further evidence of the hollow ness of the charge is not wanting.

Hospital Tickets for Shearers. UNION SHEARER WRITES [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 8 October 1892

Hospital Tickets for Shearers. UNION SHEARER WRITES: Some Patriotic Leaguers have been try ing to ' get at ' the committee of the Dalby Hospital to repeal the bye-law ad mitting shearers as patients on the pro duction of the union ticket ; but as the majority of the committee are business people largely depending on the workers for support, the attempt is not likely to succeed. Evidently the same game has been tried among the shearers themselves. At the last meeting of the hospital commit; tee two letters were read, purporting to be from the Daandine and Jimbour shearers, stating that they preferred ' receiving the ordinary hospital tickets to the privilege (!) of admittance upon production of their union tickets.' It is hardly conceivable that such a proposal could emanate from a body of union shearers ; and if it did they must be blind to their own interests and totally regardless of the welfare of others.

The Broken Hill Strike. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 8 October 1892

The Broken Hill Strike. Shortly before the Wobebb went to press the following telegram arrived from Broken Hill: ' There is little change in the situation. Baxter, the contractor, engaged 300 black legs in Melbourne and^lsewhere. Oftbat numbec however, only 200 arrived at Broken Hill, and nearly half of them deserted, declaring that_ they had been brought there under misrepresentations.

Owing to the incompetency of the men recently taken on several accidents have occurred, but of course they have been hushed up. The Inspector of Mines has, consequently, issued a notice to the owners insisting that all accidents should be re ported. The men are still firm, and the prospects of winning are better than they have been for weeks. It has been sug gested to remove the men under arrest for trial to Deniliquin, a stronghold o...

A Suggestion for Carriers. DEMOS, NARRABRI, WRITES : [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 8 October 1892

A. Suggestion for Carriers. DEMOB', NARRABBI, WRITES : There are 700 earners in the Karrabn Union, and £30 from each (about the price of one load of wool) would make a/sum of £21.000. For that much ready caish they could purchase almost any large station that the banks have to dispose of. The stock that they did not want could be sold and that would go a long way towards the purchase money. On such a station, car riers could grow their own corn and fodder, pet their own waggons built, grow food for themselves and families, and keep their teams in the winter instead of being driven about by the squatter, besides having a home in case of sickness. A fund for that purpose could be raised by each man paying, say, GJ. a mouth for every tmimul he owned. And last, but not least, they could have their own carrying agency instead of paying many thousands a year to Wright, Heaton, and Co., who actually carry nothing. One of their clerks writes a few words on a bit of paper in Sydney, another ...

THE ECONOMY OF STARVATION. Rodbertus and the "Iron-Law of Wages." [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 8 October 1892

THE BSOHOHY OF STARVATION. BtMibartna and the ' IronLsw jti In political economy it is German philosophy which has ^jaat^he lead-line of thought down to thB—rery bedrock of Truth. Probably the two most distin guished economists are Rodbertus and Karl Marx. In this article I propose to deal only with the investigations of Rodbertus, leaving thoae of Karl Marx for another occasion.- Roughly speaking they run upon parallel lines, though there are divergent lines of thought on some subjects which require oompanson and investiga So far as T am aware no translation nf the works of Rodbertus exists in English, but an excellent essay has been written upon them by Dawson, from which I shall freely quote without further acknowledge ment. Rodbertus lays down the axiomatic truth that 'all commodities can only be con sidered as the product of labour, and cosf-s nothing but labour. This is obvious if we remember that man can create nothing: — all he can do is~to~tranBforia tliB~Taw~ material boun...

THE EDITORIAL MILL. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 8 October 1892

THE EDITORIAL MILL What concerns us most particularly just now is, of course, the political side of the Labour Movement; and Labourin politics has within the last week or two had a slap in the face from, two big politicians. Griffith, in Queensland, has been tamoerin? with the laws^or the avowed purpose of keeping Labour out of policies; Parkes, in New South Wales, demands that if Labour gets into Parlia ment it must be ready to wear, along with its flannel shirt and moleskins, the plug hat and kid gloves of swelldom. Griffith would Btarve us out ; Parkee would intoxi cate us when we got in. The method is characteristic of tne men; yet each repre sents a class with which Jjabour will always have to reckon in the political con fliot. There are those who threaten and those who bribe— if only as in this instance it's a question of bribing the mind with falacious reasoning. Of the two politicians Griffith is of course the prime reactionary. He at least knew something of the Modern Movem...
