THE MYSTERY OF GREAT WEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 2 November 1918

THE MYSTERY OF GREAT WEALTH. / As compared with former ages this is £ an age of great wealth. At least that is *f What we are told by our great statesmen, -. wiseacres, and pundits. The wealth of V«atfons is now being measured in hun , ^reds of millions. A few years ago joil * lions would have been quite sufficient. Inside of another decade, if .the. present CWit of wealth accumulation keeps up, trillions will be required to do the sub ject justice. And then will come quad rillions, quintillions, and so on until the ?world will become so wealthy that no L nodv will hav^ any time to work, for each ;,* and all will be kept continually busy in : figuring . up bow much they are indi *f Vidually worth in the financial scheme. of I things But of course no one in those glad 5 daj b to come will ever need to work any i Snore, for every one will be so wealthy - Jthat they can live on their wealth and ^ Income, Without longer enduring the diu k comfoit and sweat of toil.

The sudden death of Jim Mooney, Secre tary of the A..W.U. in Tasmania, robs me of a very old and dear friend, and the Labor Movement of an old and valuable member He was. a big, quiet chap, was Jim, and a man every inch of his six feet. It is one of the tragedies of advancing age that .our newer and younger friends never seem -to quite understand or ap preciate our keen and deep regard for some old friend whose virtues don't appeal to them because they know him not in the same way that we do. I have dropped in at recent Annual Conferences of the A.W.U., and fonud Jim Mooney there, re presenting the little Island State, and some of the younger delegates thought him rather slow and conservative, and rather wondered at my high regard for him. But the great thing about good, fconest, old Jim was that he was always there when he was wanted — earnest, sin cere, and staunch to the core. In 1890, Jim and niyself were great pals, staying together a...

A MILLION NEW HOMES. POST-WAR SCHEME IN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 2 November 1918

A MILLION NEW HOMES. PO$T-WAR SCHEME IN ENGLAND. One of the most important questions in Great Britain for several years past, and one which has assumed political promi nence at many electoral campaigns, is that of the housing of the working classes. This subject is now being taken in hand by a departmental committee appointed by the Government, while the Local Govern ment Board has requested town and urban authorities throughout the. country to re port, not' later than a date in October, the housing requirements of the people in their towns and districts. It is admitted by the .board that 500,000 houses are now urgently ,wanted, but other authorities,, including the. joint com mittee on labor problems after the war, estimate that not less than 1,000,000 houses are necessary, costing £250,000,000. On the question of finance, Government aid has been promised, although no stated amount has been named pending the re port of the newly appointed committee. In the meantime a grant of £20,0...

THE MONARO BY-ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 2 November 1918

THE MONARO BY-ELECTION. The lamented death of the late member for the Monaro, Mr. G. T. C. Miller, has necessitated a by-election for this good old Labor seat, and every Laborite should be getting busy to hold it for Labor. The Monaro is ctiiefly a pastoral elec torate, with the exception of Jindabyne, and a few other small centres that of late years have commenced wheat and potato cultivation. Dairying: lias been tried, but without success, the winter being too severe and fully two months longer than at Bega and other coastal electorates. One of the chief occupations is the rab bit industry, in which large numbers of men are engaged*. Taking the electors on the whole, they are. essentially democratic. Many of the settlors have acquired their industrial learning through the Australian Workers' Union. In the early days of the Union many of these landholders were men who followed- shearing1 for a liveli hood. To-day they own and work the land owned by them and others in the early days...

(2) On October 3 Labor wrested the con stituency of Wellington Central, vacated by the death of a Government member, from all comers. The Government candi date was a strong man, but he went down, and the 'official Labor candidate' had an absolute majority of 637 over all .other candidates put together. (3) This was a victory over more than the Government. A union secretary (one Mack, of the Amalgamated Society of Railway Ser vants) came forward as an 'Independent.' He raised the sectarian banner as well as the Labor separatist banner. Union after union turned him down, and the result of the election is eloquent in this respect. His own union gave splendid support to Peter Fraser, Labor's standard bearer. (4) The coal miners won their case against...

Sir George Gipps said:— 'I have npt heard one reasonable and disinterested person object to the main purpose of this Bill, but there would indeed be no excuse for her Majesty's advisers, if, by the exercise of her prerogative, she were to confirm lands to persons who pretend to have purchased them at the rate of four hundred acres for a penny; for that is, as n...

NO IMMORALITY IN RUSSIA. WHAT SOCIALISM HAS ACCOMPLISHED. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 2 November 1918

NO IMMORALITY IN RUSSIA. WHAT SOCIALISM HAS ACCOM PLISHED. 'With the most lax marriage laws, prostitution banished, and divorces as easy to get as a cup of tea, there is less im morality in Russia than anywhere in the world,' declares Louise Bryant in the 'Saturday Evening Post' (New York). She, with her husband, visited Russia and other European countries engaged in the war, and made a special study of its effect on prostitution. Declaring there is now no economic reason for being a prostitute in Russia, s&e says the 'whole pitiful busi ness is just'toppling over.' She concludes: 'It seems to me that it wouldn't be a bad idea for some of the professional soul savera with elaborate systems for saving the 'fallen' to ponder a little on the simple methods of the much-maligned Bolshevikt.' Telling of her study of the effect of the war on prostitution, Louise Bryattt says: 'Now they were all re-examined, and those that were not healthy were sent to Ihospitals, so that there shou...
