Daughter's Letter Dear Mother [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 26 April 1919

[?] Dear Mother,—: Easter is over and some of the prophets tell us the 'flu will last till Christmas. It makes one shudder to think of such a possibility, but, fortunately, these dreary folk know no more about it than we do. Anybody can have seven guesses as to when it will end, and then be all wrong. Still, it is a terrible thing to have In 'a city as closely packed as Sydney, and when the total cost of it is made out we shall have paid a very heavy toll for being allowed to live so near our neighbors. That won't trouble the man who gets the rents at all. A room costs just the same whe ther you live in it or die in it; for some one is likely to survive in the family who can still scrape together a few shillings. Talking of scraping money together, I wonder why no economist ever takes ac count of the regular tax which poverty makes on the poor. You know the old saying, mother, that the poor would starve if it were not for the poor. That is just as true now as ever it was. Hardly a w...

The Peace Treaty. WILL IT PROVE A "SCRAP OF PAPER?" [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 26 April 1919

The Peace Treaty. WILL IT PROVE A 'SCRAP OF PAPER ?' The Peace Treaty was to have been signed on April 15, then it was definitely announced that it would be ready for sig nature on April 25, and now the cables inform us that the actual 'date will be May 15. No doubt the Peace Conference had an enormous number of knotty prob lems to consider, but why make any an nouncement until completion of the work is actually in sight? The continual statements that Germany will refuse to sign if the conditions are too harsh, ma,y or may not be true, but it is ? reasonable to assume that where there is _so much smoke there is fire smouldering somewhere. Those who argue for the utmost severity in dealing with Germany use two argu ments, neither of which is as convincing as it might appear to superficial think ers. The first is that Germany started the war, and therefore should be made to pay for it. The second is that if Ger many .had won, HER conditions would have been very much more severe and ex...

Kandos News. TYRANNY AND DESPOTISM. VICTIMISATION AT CEMENT WORKS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 26 April 1919

Kandos News. ' (From our Correspondent.) .:? TYRANNY ANaOESfOTISM. -.; y ictiM isation Aj^eeM ent works. Many cases of petty victimisation have recently occurred at : the Kandos Cement Works, the District Superintendents of which is Mr. F. S. Richards, an importa tion from America, the land of Bluff and Bluster, and a Tory Conscriptionist of the most approved type. . Why free-born Australians tolerate the brow-beating and petty acts of tyranny of this Yankee bluffer as quietly and pa tiently as they do, is hard to say, unless the demoralising result of the disastrous 1917 industrial upheaval has knocked all the fight out of them. . . Perhaps one of the worst cases of vic timisation that has occurred at these works is that of a stalwart Unionist and Laborite who has, for the last two yts--s, been a prominent member of all the A.W.U. deputations that have waited upon the management from time to time, and brought various grievances under the no tice of the higher officials of his Union...

Militants and Moderates. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 26 April 1919

Militants and Moderates. ? I have been challenged to explain what 1 mean by the use of the terms 'Mode- % rates' and 'Militants' as applied to Labor I members or Conference delegates. I Of course, it would be easy to frame a I dozen different definitions, but, broadly I speaking, I consider a real 'militant' La J borite to be one who knows- what the & objective or goal of the Movement is lead '0( ing to, and is prepared to do his damnedest I to get there. 1 He must, if a candidate, be animated i| by a burning sense of the injustice, dis honesty, and callous hypocrisy of the pre sent .system, and must be prepared to take risks in doing his share to alter it Although not expected to be a saint he must be a sober man, not given to wasting his time and substance in habitual m gambling, and whatever his tastes may H H be, must always make his sport play m second place to his work. U A 'Moderate' may be described in one ? word as an opportunist. He desires to ? do certain things o...

LABOR, THE SUPERIOR OF CAPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 26 April 1919

LABOR, THE SUPERIOR OF CAPITAL. 'It Is assumed that labor is available only in connection with capital, that no body labors unless somebody else owning capital, somehow by the use of it, induces him to labor. Labor is prior to and in dependent of capital. .Capital is only the fruit of labor and could not have, existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves higher consideration. I bid . the laboring people beware of surrendering the power which they possess, and which, if surren dered, will surely be used to shut the door of advancement for such as they, and fit hew disabilities and burdens upon them until all of liberty be lost. — Abraham Lin coln

That 'Wave of Spiritual M Regeneration.'*' ^ | At the first outbreak of the pandemic!

EDITORIAL. A MILITANT PROGRAMME. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 26 April 1919

EDITORIAL. A MILITANT PROGRAMME. I have been asked by several persons what I mean by 'militancy' as opposed to 'moderateness' in Labor politics, and to sketch out a 'militant' programme. I have much pleasure in doing so, be cause my nature has always leaned more to constructiveness than to destructive ness, while, at the same time clearly rea lising that, some things must be destroyed to clear out old evils and corruption and thus make room for a better and nobler civilisation. . The following is a fighting policy which would, I submit, stir the 'possum in the Tory camp and stir up enthusiasm in our own.. If we won, I would say put itinto operation without delay. If we ? lost, it could only be by the Tories giving us nearly as much in order to save their skins. ? ? '? The beauty of these proposals is that they are perfectly CONSTITUTIONAL,, because they can only be carried out if a majority of the electors approve, and even the Tories profess to agree to majority rule.

Wheat to Japan. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 26 April 1919

Wheat to Japan. There's a row over the N.S.W.. Wheat Commission selling 72,000 tons of inferior Wheat to Japan. Owing to the tragic bungling of the authorities there is so much dirt and rock bagged up with the inferior wheat that it is feared in diplomatic circles that Japan has embarked on a secret project to buy up all. the Australian surplus and build a new island out of the sittings. The added power given to the Island Empire by this surreptitious addition to her territories may constitute an inter national menace, and will be considered by the Peace Conference immediately after the suppression of Bolshevism in Europe. Meanwhile Billy Hughes has bis eagle eye focussed on the new problem, and his return - to Australia may be deferred in consequence. PL.EBS. 1 - ? .

A MUDDLE-HEADED PARSON. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 26 April 1919

A MUDDLE-HEADED PARSON. A parson named Godson has been preaching at Dapto on the wickedness of Communism, because he says that 'God intended' to have various classes of so ciety. How these clerical humbugs assume to be in the confidence of the Almighty and to know all about his 'intention' is most amusing. Probably this reverend gent, forgets that the Christ whom he follows — at a safe distance — both preached and prac tised Communism according- to the New Testament. Mr. Godson, with logic unworthy of a child, tried to prove his case for different classes in the community by pointing to the necessity for various classes in a school or in a cattle show. A moment's consideration will prove that there is no analogy whatever. Classes in a school are mere matters of conveni ence for imparting instruction, and depend largely upon differences in age. Classes among cattle depend mainly upon breed ing and feeding, and have nothing to do with social or economic differences. Classes in human s...

^M^mM^^ CROWS. 'Caw! Caw!' The mocking crows on high Pollute the brilliant Autumn sky. Above wide paddocks on the wing They find no good in anything. 'Caw! Caw!' they yell, and Joy departs. Her suitcase packed with saddened hearts. Revengefully I stand and stare At the black wowsers of the air. 'Caw! Caw!' It needs no brain to say. So fools repeat it ev'ry day.

FARMER HILLSIDE. ? * * 'HOP-TASTER': He wavered out of the pub with a heavy list to port, and zig-zagged down the centre of the road doing wonderful balancing feats. His fixed idea seemed to be that the shining tram rail was the only track through space above a world doing 5000 miles an hour from east to west. Presently the force of gravity beat him and he fell like a tower in the centre of the track. Then the watching policeman stepped from the kerb to collect him, and the usual cold blooded observer remarked briefly, 'The right man in the right place...
