ROYALTY, AND WHAT IT COSTS THE PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 30 January 1892

ROYALTY,, AND WHAT IT COSTS THE PEOPLE. (By Barry Hurgess.) Our most Gracious Sovereign Queen Vic toria, us the prayer book styles her, has just lost a grandson, and the whole world, avo arc led' to believe, is swamped in toiira of ?.sym- pathy at her bereavement. Our Ministers have moved the adjourn'-'' nient of the House to move a vote of condolence to, her ; but it is pleasing* to note that there was at least one man in the House who refused to have a hand in this lickspittle loyalism, and. as he (Arthur Rao) very pertinently asked I ask, what has this young man 'done for the nation or his fellow men that the whole world' should pros trate themselves in grief because he has pegged out. I think Mr. Rae has earned the gratitude of his f ellow workers in refusing to sanction sucli a proceeding. It has been said that the Queen is a good woman, and is en titled to sympathy on that account. How many good women; equally as good as .she, as Mr. Rae pointed out, lose those that, are deare...

GOOD DAY, ALECK I'm a bit sorry for Aleck Benduek. , He would be a really nice fellow if he knew: how, which he dosen't. Aleck has repeated a idonial of my statements made in the * ' Hummer, ' ' and I now challenge him to disprove the following : — (1) That he came into the Union office in Hay the morning after the call out, and asked me for my coj-y of the signed agreement^ containing, all his shearers' names. (2) That at first I, refused, on the grounds that he only, wanted to prose cute them. (3) That onreceiving his distinct assurance to the contrary I accepted his word as that of a man, and actually allowed him to coj)y the names, thinking he might intend paying them oft', or keeping a record of any who. left 'the -station without permission, con trary to the wording* of the ' call out' order. (4) That despite this assurance he imme diately went to the late Mr Thomas Ro bertson's office and put the list in his hands for prosecution. (5) That I saw him just afterwards in the mai...

SELECTORS AND LABORERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 30 January 1892

SELECTORS AND LABORERS. In saying* ' selectors and laborers,' I dofti't mean to say tliat the selector isnH a laborer ; but merely Avish. to say a few words to the selector who labors for himself and something about the 11'ian who labors for another. O It has been too common for the selector to imagine that those who advocate the 'rights of labor' are opposed to the interests of the farmer; and would rob the thrifty and in dustrious of the fruit,s of their toil, in order to bestow them upon the . idle, tlie- drunken, and the worthless gen era 11)-. ? /.'.:' That is n mistake, partly due to want of knowledge,- 'and prejudice on . the part of the farming community, partly due to the wr on g actions of, men who attach themselves for a time to the skirts of every movement, and, by their faults, condemn- those who are striving earnestly for desirable reforms. Most of all, however, this class bitterness is created and fostered by a lying, servile, corrupt and plausible Press, which endeav...

I don't I sajr that you knowingly set fires going | in the paddocks, but I know that yoii\ did not try your BesiTt6''put them out. I have it from one of your own set, that a prominent leader of the Union ordered his subordinates to let the fire rip, as it went through a scrubby reserve and would clear it. *£[e would risk his fences, as well as the cockies, on the other side. This was two years ago ; and now a very similar blast has swept tho same ground. And to-day a cockies' son has been ., fined (with a big Union man on the { Bench) for careless use of fire.

ANTS IN THE BILLY Gen. See's 1ST.B. to Business Sheet is reckoned veiy strong by the members, and to .' us it seems ill advised. It either is not as . exj)licit as it should be, or else it explains too much. Wagga meeting condemned it Avarmly, ' . not so much on account of the strange argu- I ' nients used, but because it doesn't look the square' thing to use the business sheet to argue .for or against any proposition — that is, unless all hands are allowed to haA^e a cut in.

IN MEMORIAM. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 6 February 1892

*, IN MEMORIAM. v ? We saw a terribly mournful 'In Me moriam' notice in a Labor paper some time ago, on the anniversary of the death of a Union shearer. It wound up something' like this : — May God's holy saints and angels Their prayers for him extol, And may the Lord Jesus Christ Have mercy on his soul. For we have no father now. An old pal sends us the following, which is worth- re -printing, as it is ever so much better in rhyme and reason than the fore going :— Poor Tommy is dead in the town of Tirana , Put down by the ' Ringer,' King Death, They buried him there in the usual manner, His widow and son are lamenting his death. His ' stone'* now is broken, his shears are all ' gapped, ' His ' ' oil-rag' ' is worn out and wet ; In a scab -shed he cannot be possibly trapped, He's true-blue for ever, you bet.
