{^SSHHWtVUHHEGS; ? FBOM NORTH OOMONOIN : A traveller, looking for shearing, called on the boss for a stand. His horses were -pooj, for he hadn't had a cut in during the year. Although there was a stand vacant = the boss refused to take him ou. He wasn't going to put anybody in that stand, he said.

"Let the Governor Rip." [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 15 October 1892

'Let the Governor Rip.' The editor of the Reefton (N.Z.) Guardian has evidently no sense of humour or he would not have published a leading article like this : The Worker, a Labour journal of the extremist type, published at Brisbane, occasionally takes upon itseit to mane com ments on the politics of New Zealand. The policy pursued by this paper almost borders on downright Anarchism, and, as a matter of oourse, its references to the political affairs of this Colony are in variably tainted with colouring of an ex tremely Socialistic character. In a late issue it published a short paragraph relat ing to the dispute between Lord Glasgow and the New Zealand Ministry respecting the question of appointments to the Legis lative Council. This is what it said : Glasgow, the newohum New Zealand Govern or, is as intolerant over the Demooratic nomi nations to the OoBnoil as Musgrave was over the Kitts case. Ballanoe should stick bis men in ana let Glasgow and tbe English Govern ment rip. This,...

THINGS VARIOUS. Striking on the Sabbath. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 15 October 1892

THIHaS VARLQUS. Striking on the Sabbath. One would have thought Hihat -every possible and almost every impossible ob jection to the cause of Unionism as exempli fied *t Broken Hill had^ound its way into .print. Not so, however. It has remained for the Rev. Joseph Nicholson, expresi dent of the Wesleyan Conference of South Australia to bring forward a new and original reason for downing the crowd. ''The miners,' he savs. 'have weakened their claim to enthusiastic support from the Christian Churches by resolving to strike mn-the -Sabbath,-and by bolding^^ublic mass meefcingajMi that day when there was no real necessity for it. Christian Churches ~need to be careful about giving patronage to courses opposed to the law of God. Special blessings are promised by God to those who respect his Sabbaths.' [And here follows a long quotation about ' turn ing away thy foot from the Sabbath.'] How Christian men could expect God's blessing to rest upon a strike undertaken -on-the Sabbath, in the h...

"Fellow Electors, Outlaws, Absentees and Corpses." GILBERT CASEY WHITES FROM CHARTERS TOWERS : [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 15 October 1892

'Fellow Electors, Outlaws, Absentees and Corpses.' GILBERT CASEY WRITES FROM CHARTERS TOWERS : It is becoming quite common since the Revision Oourt to address public meetings in the following mammr : JMUiw Blectois, outlaws, absentees, and corpses. And they are all there, too. Things are pretty much mixed wnen a claim filled in by the electoral registrar is thrown out, as at the Revision Court at Charters Towers. The workings of the Elections Act are so very simple that a local barrister had his claim thrown out on acoount of its being improperly filled in. 'He afterwards ap plied in person and got on the roll. The Government struck 1964 names off the roll here and sent only about 500 forme of claim up. The A.W.U. had to print 100 after the Government supply ran out, and some other body did the same. The ignorance of the people is something deplorable. There in Brisbane one man received official notification that he is six times dead, and yet he is so intensely Btupid as to walk abo...

Thank Yon for Nothing. A NORTHERN MINER WHITES: [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 15 October 1892

Thank You for Nothing. A NORTHERN MINER WRITES : Alanc's ' note in last week's Worker did not exaggerate the absurdity of the new bill purporting to legalise gold and silver mining below the depth of seventy feet within certain mineral areas. Indeed, not being a practical miner he had over looked one of the strongest objections to the measure— namely, the difference in the conditions m which gold exiBts above or below the depth of 70ft. from the surface. What miner of any experience in reefing does not know to his bitter loss that in most mines at the depth of 70ft. or 100ft. a man with limited means is met by the almost insuperable difficulties of water and mundic. Above that level moBt of the gold has been freed from sulphurous com pounds through the alternate action of air and water and is therefore amenable- to th6 ordinary milling processes. But below the1 water level, not only pumping machinery is required but the gold is mostly associated with iron and arsenical pyrites, thus...

THE CAUSE OF THINGS. GILBERT CASEY WRITES : [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 15 October 1892

THE CAUSE OF THINGS. GILBERT CASET WRTTBB : — It don't matter much where one is, it-a ? all war, wrangle, and snarl. My God ! It's a beautiful civilisation and, Lane is not far out when he says its rotten. Sometimes I think its very rottenness is the manure that is going to foroe the growth of the New Order. Then again, I fancy that the vapours arising from such a festering heap are going to destroy all life. On the whole, however, I have faith in human nature. RICHARD KING WRITES : Some may say that it is through their own improvidence that millions are oon demned to a_cmwdud lift) iu tho ulums of so-called civilised towns ; but we know to-day when the law is aB truly a game of grab as it was in the dim moming of civilisation, when we are taught to rob and cheat each other, to strive for luxury for ourselves, utterly heedless of the privation and suffering of others, when indeed the system itself is upheld by vast monopolies of natural capital, it is impossible for aU to beoomforta...
