THE IMPERIAL MENACE. A TEXT FOR "EMPIRE DAY" SPEECHES. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 19 May 1921
THE IMPERIAL MENACE. A TEXT FOR "EMPIRE DAY" SPEECHES. W. M.- Hughes : "The manner in which the Dominions maintained armies in the field put the seal upon that new status which the world has now acknowledged." Sir William Irvine : "The claims that the Dominions had acquired a new status is sentimental hum ! bug." I Readers of the "Worker" can well ¡leave to the two Williams the settle- ment of the above difference. The point that matters is no mere jugglery of words, but the fact that what the "Worker" has long hinted at is being attempted. A ukase, implied and under- stood, is abroad by which it is intended to ROPE IN AUS- TRALIA, CANADA, AND SOUTH AFRICA in one Imper- ial defence scheme, to be follow- ed later by "certain constitution- ' al changes"; in other words, by IMPERIAL FEDERATION. . The Prime Minister's device in urging this Imperial obligation is the "new status," which is said to have come to us as the result of the war. Sir William Irvine says there is no new status, a...

Would Smash up Australian Unions CAPTAINS OF INDUSTRY TAKE ADVANTAGE OF UNEMPLOYMENT. LONDON, DIRECTORS PLAY. PART IN SHIPPING STRIKE (From B.C. "Federationist.") [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 19 May 1921
Would Smash up Australian Unions CAPTAINS OF INDUSTRY TAKE ADVANTAGE OF UNEMPLOY- MENT. LONDON , DI RECTORS PLA Y. I PART IN SHIPPING STRIKE (From B.C. " Fedferationist") The more one analyses the indus- trial situation , in Australia, the more one is convinced that the forces of organised capitalism are. acting, in concert to provoke industrial up- heavals throughout that country. It seems that capitalism down , under wants a fight -has been organising for it for some time-and if .it can't get it one way, then it is prepared to get it some other'way. The capitalisms know what is ahead of them. The' war didn't bring the victory they,hoped for. It has left the workers stronger than ever-perhaps not so much in num- bers as in intellectual force. The unionists' of Australia as in other parts of the world, haye their eyes »open:,^^"vjtiave;be¿r. promised "a new"world-"smade safe for .the work- ers V byv the capitalists.

"AS IT WAS IN THE BEGINNING, IS NOW ETC." [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 19 May 1921
"AS IT WAS IN THE BEGINN IÑQ, IS NOW ETC." lt would be vain to attempt to hide or minimise the seriousness and the criminality of the faux-pas which appears to have shut out all hopes of good results from the visit'of Mr. Poynton. In the first place it was justly considered that the Govern* ment was acting wisely and . gener- ously-and we believe sincerely-in deciding to send the Minister for Home and Territories to make in- vestigations here personally; by way of reciprocal . re-approachment thc mass of residents of the Territory held out the. olive branch per med- ium of thc announcements in and advocacy "y the "Standard" in con- nection with the formation of a re- presentative Committee to discuss the more urgent wants of the Ter- ritory with the Minister. Up to th stage there was no fly in the oint- ment as far as the public eye could "sec, and there was considerable sat- isfaction because of the readiness with which all sections accepted the "Standard's" honest and promising su...

Härdikar, a scholarly young Hindu who has been touring the United States on behalf of the Self-Determination League of India, favored Vancouver with several of his.able'lectures in the neighborhood of last week-end, one of these being delivered to a large audience in thc Pender Hall last Friday evening, ? .. jj cwhen he spoke on "British rule, m india." I This hall, which has been the scene bf various significant happenings in recent years, was on this occasion thc rendezvous of many natives of India, conspicuous by their black or white turbans and forming, at least one half of the throng which filled thc seats, the stairways, and the balcony, and even stood in dozens and scores against the walls. Comrade Raheim officiated as chairman and, in his double capacity bf fellow-countryman of the lectur- er and old-time adherent of the Van- couver Socialist party, he evidently felt strongly tempted...
