CORRESPONDENCE. NATIONALISATION OF UNEARNED INCREMENT. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 19 April 1919
CORI^PONDENCE. NATIONALISATION OF UNEARNED i INCREMENT. * To the Kditor. I Sir, — The moral bar to the adoption of (Henry George's theory of land national 1 isation is that it proposes the State should itake from the individual something for Rwhich he has in most cases paid his hard Ifearned money, either to the State itself |or with the sanction and approval of its ilfews. ' fSrThis principle, however, does not apply So the appropriation- by the community of nil future increments -which it, the com pnunity itself, creates. If this principle fvvere embodied in our statute law no one ? would be injured, as all would have full I notice and an immense revenue would be I returned to the publio as a result of its I collective enterprise and expenditure. r With a view to making this great reform ? practicable, I drafted and carried through 1 Parliament a bill to create a State Bureau f of Valuations, under the provisions of yjwhich all the land in the State is to be 'Ivalued by the Valuer...

To the Editor, "Labor News." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 19 April 1919
To the Editor, 'Labor News.' Sir, — I notice *in the daily press of 7/4/'19 that Mr. Holman is drawing a com parison between the patriotic workers at Matraville and those who attend the Sun day meetings in the Domain. He remarked that out of 30,000 workers in the Domain, not more than 30 would respond if ap pealed to for the purpose of assisting the Matraville workers. One is inclined to think what Mr. Hol man would have replied had he been ap pealed to in like manner, say, twenty years ago when he was one of the leading ora tors in the Domain of a Sunday afternoon. I wonder if Mr. Holman ever thinks how he might have felt in those days when he was not nearly so^well off as he is at present, when he may have been just a little bit more hungry than he is to-day, had anyone suggested to him that he take up this work on the only day in the week he had to himself? What is Mr. Holman doing- to-day to assist in this work? Surely flying over the country in a special train at the expense of...
MODERATION. (To the Editor, "The Labor News.") [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 19 April 1919
MODERATION. (To the Editor, 'The Labor News.') Sir, — The loud acclaim with which Mr. Osborne's appointment as consumers' '.'representative on the kaleidoscopic Meat Board has been received by the profiteer ing gang eloquently attests how little t&ey fear either the 'methods' or 'principles' of at least one champion of ; the so-called moderates. The question we have to decide, in effect, is: Are we to \ remain a pure and simple vote-snaring ^contrivance, or be honest, and take our Hrightful stand as a working-class party? Hlf the former, we will continue to dope ?the, people by withholding from them the Sttruth as to their economic position in ^society. If the latter, .we will adopt the I suggested objective, and, what is more rimportant, live up to it. I Every election that comes round the Icry is the same, 'This time, above ail ?others, we must defeat our opponents, land gain, if possible, the administrative fcoeitions.' To achieve this alleged all ?mportant result we are ...

The Cost of Living. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 26 April 1919
The Cost of Living. ? i The cost of living still goes up. The increase for March, 1919, over March, 1918, is over 9 per cent., which shows that if war was expensive peace is still more so. The average increase for the whole Commonwealth is said to be a fraction over 42 per cent, since the outbreak of war in 1914. . It must be remembered, however, that these figures are compiled from the price lists of 46 articles of 'food and groceries' only, and do not by any means represent the full additional cost of living. When we take account of the enormous rise in the price of clothing, footwear,' household requisites, rent, rail and boat travelling, and hundreds of other things, including taxation, at is safe to say the increased cost of keeping alive is any thing from a hundred to a hundred and fifty per cent more than in pre-war days, and the cost of dying has gone up in proportion. i

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER PUBLIC LIBRARY OF N.S.W. Corner Bent and Macquarie streets. INDUSTRIAL ARBITRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 26 April 1919
WWiflK^SJKWR ' ': ' ' PUBLIC LIBRARY OF N.S.W. Corner Bent and Macquarie streets, INDUSTRIAL ARBITRATION. Arbitration, or the intervention of a third party to decide a. case under dispute, is the natural expedient, when conciliation, or a mutual agreement between the dis-' putants without such intervention, is found to fail. The application of the method- to industrial troubles has produced a multiplicity of opinions, and in conse quence a mass of literature. New Zea land, as the originator of the compulsory type, has received a great deal of atten tion, while the Australian States are conr sidered the field for this, as for other, political experiments. * ? « Broadhead. — State Regulation of Labor and Labor Disputes in New Zealand. The author of this book was secretary for the Canterbury Employers' Associa tion and acted for three years on the Can terbury Conciliation Board, so it is usually : referred to as the authority on the ma ;chinery of the Arbitration Act up to 1907. i It f...
CORRESPONDENCE. WHO CONTROLS THE WHEAT POOL? To the Editor, "Labor News." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 26 April 1919
CORRESPONDENCE. WHO CONTROLS THE WHEAT POOL? ? To the Editor, 'Labor News.' In view of the recent sale to Mr. George son of 72,000 tons of wheat by the New South Wales Wheat Board, and of the fact that Mr. Georgeson made the purchase on. behalf of the Japanese Government, the public, as well as those most immediately concerned, are solicitous to learn by whom are overseas sales of wheat controlled. I was, until this sale was consummated, under the belief that the Australian Wheat Board controlled overseas sales of wheat. In connection with overseas sales the policy of the Australian Wheat Board en sures that each State shall receive the same net return per bushel. The method adopted is to add together all receipts (calculated on an F.A.Q. basis) by the States from overseas sales, and strike the average return per bushel. Calculating receipts on an F.A.Q, basis means that if, for any reason, a sale is affected over seas at a lower price than the ruling F.A.Q. rate, the difference bet...
N.S.W. Journeymen Confectioners' Union. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 26 April 1919
N.S.W. Journeymen Confec tioners' Union. The above Union held its inaugural Annual Picnic on Saturday, April 5 last, at Clontarf. Over 600 persons were pre sent, and a very enjoyable day was spent. An eleventh hour regulation prevented the use of the pavilion for dancing, and this absurd measure caused great disap pointment among the dancing patrons. The committee, however, improvised a dancing floor on the lawn from table tops kindly lent by the genial caretaker, Mr. Watson. Needless to say, the floor was filled with dancing couples in every dance. A very large sports programme was put through, and many of the events were very keenly contested, which re flected great credit upon the judgment of the handicappers, Messrs. J. Watson and D. Clements. Results : — 75 yds. Handicap, Youths in the Trade. — R. Hersey (1 yd.), 1; W. Clements (5 yds.) 2; J. Lennon (6 yds.) 3. 76 yds. Handicap, Single Ladies em ployed in the Trade. — W.

While the 'Labor News' first pointed out that the inhalation of poisonous zinc fumes was a dangewrtis' 'remedy for in fluenza, it took the actual illness from this cause of a State Minister's son to secure the speedy abandonment of the folly. **'lt is a pity in the public interests that some Minister doesn't get smothered in his own mask to bring about the repeal of the pernicious tyranny of compulsory poisoning from breathing carbonic acid.

SYDNEY HORSES SCORE. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 26 April 1919
SYDNEY HORSES SCORE. No fewer than half a dozen horses ?which were well known on Sydney courses within the last year scored in other States on Saturday last. The moat notable victory was that of Two Blues in the Deloraine Cup. He was followed home by Kcnilic, another horse who raced here until a few montns ago. Two Blues was sold in January for 500gs. jto a Tasmanian sportsman, and Satur ,'day was his first victory in the new colors. He was purchased ostensibly for ithe purpose of carrying his present .owner's colors at the Tasmanian Cup car mi val in February, but he ran badly in the ?,'JJauriceston and Hobart Cups. I Another important win was that of Ex jplorer at Caulfield, and as it was in a jiiurdle race in which he made his second' attempt at the illegitimate branch, of the 'sport, tlie victory augurs well for his (future in his new sphere. ; The well-known Victorian sportsman ?Eric Connolly bought Explorer from Mr. 'C.

Compulsory Military Service. The Victorian A.L.P. State Conference has passed a resolution in favor of wip ing compulsory service out of our De fence Act, and has decided to ask the next Interstate Conference to concur. It is pretty safe to say that there will be a big section in this State of the same opinion, and the pros and cons should be freely discussed in the Labor news papers before the N.S.W. State Confer ence meets.
