THE AGENCY EVIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 1 September 1910

THE AGENCY EVIL. *T* HE Queensland Tra'des Union Con ??? * gress very rightly recommended the abolition of all private labor agencies, and added that Trade Unionists should seek employment through the agency of their . secretary. - One speaker asserted that metropolitan labor- agencies were mostly patronised by' the 'scab and the. blackleg. This is but a minor complaint compared with the one which is really the root of the registry office evil — and that is barefaced false pretences. In mans' of these ' Institutions ' a wholesale system of fleecing . has been carried on. Bogus advertisements of an attractive character are inserted in the daily press— which, bj' the way, will' insert anything ;in the nature of an adyt.— and in many cases scores of replies are received. Then the. applicants are informed separately that before their applications can be considered they -will have to pay a registration fee of 5s., or thereabouts. If there are fifty applicants the keeper of the office rea...

A DREAM OF STARTLED SNOBS. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 1 September 1910

A DREAM OF STARTLED SNOBS. There is a sense o'f superior satis faction to Jeames in making the toilers of the State pay for the en-' ..joy-merits* of 'their betters.' It is thus that he proclaims it to be bad form on the part of the politicians, who agitate for the abolition of the State Governor as an English ap pointment.

NOT WHITE YET. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 1 September 1910

NOT WHITE YET. AUSTRALIA, particularly New South , Wales, will soon have to deal once and for all with the colored labor ques tion. There was much beating of drums when the kanakas were deported, but -by sending those Islanders home Australia did not whiten itself. To-day, the humili ating spectacle' is to .be. seen of a fat -Chinaman rapping out orders to white men, who jostle each other for the privi lege of working for him in the fruit trade. The Chinese, who, in spite of .Factories Acts, work 16 hours a day, and spend about- 3s. 6d. per week on food, . have a firm grip on the cabinet-making indus try, which' means the furniture trade. Dozens of hotels, restaurants, boarding houses and stations , employ Chinese or Japanese cooks and laundrymen. The latest, and perhaps the most dangerous opponent of white labor is the Indian — tlie Hindoo and the :Mahommedan. This dusky subject of the British Empire finds fife, in Australia very congenial. Once upon a time -lie was content to_ haw...

CONDITIONAL TEACHERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 1 September 1910

CONDITIONAL TEACHERS; Dear Worker,— Many civil servants, teachers especially, will hail with considerable satisfac'tidn the; advent of a Labor Government with, as' ,. Mr! Holman declares, a Civil Service Ap peal Court as one. of the 'planks of its : platform. . ? ; To teachers particularly is such an Ap peal Court absolutely necessary to enable them to maintain their self-respect against tho petty tyranny of some of their in spectors. These, by means. of the , fear of an adverse secret 'efficiency' report, _ 'keep/ the -'teachers in a state of humiliat- ' ing subjection, for the latter dare not as sert their manhood by showing resent ment against ungentlemanly remarks and communications. This petty tyranny ex ercised by inspectoi-s has been drawn at tention to before, but the present Govern ment has done nothing to abate it, and render tho conditions of, teachers v less ?humiliating.. 'Altogether, apart from .the teachers, this condition ol affairs should . be put a stop to for the ...

THE POLICE AND THE LABOR PARTY. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 1 September 1910

THE POLICE AND THE LABOR PARTY. Dear Worker, — Pressure of public opinion and tlfe fear that the police force, as well as other branches of the public service, were going over solidly to the Labor Party, are evi dently the reasons why Mr. Wade and his Ministry granted members of the force an increase in pay, arid liave_ reduced the obnoxious seven years' service qualifica tion which attached to the previous ad vance of 6d. per diem. Mr. Wade's action is not likely to have the effect he doubtless hoped for. It is too belated. The police have long since realised that their best friends in Par liament are the Labor members, and it is to be hoped that they will cast a solid vote for Labor at the coming election. ^ Bitter experience has taught them that they have nothing to hope for from their official head, and that the welfare of the rank and file is a matter of indifference to their Ministerial head (the Chief Sec retary) and his' colleagues. It was a Labor ' member (Mr. Arthur Rae, n...

HAS A BOOKMAKER LEGAL RIGHTS? A few months ago Mr. R. R. Davies, well-known in Sydney turf circles as the 'Major,', but lately . residing in Calcutta, had trouble with the Calcutta Turf Club. He set out that on December 23, 1909, the following' letter concerning him was cir culated to three bookmakers— viz., Hard ing, Guttman, and Jackson — at the in stance ' of the' secretary, Calcutta Turf Club:— 'I am directed by my stewards to give you notice not to have any bet ting transaction, dire.ctly . or indirectly, with several persons, including plaintiff.' That letter was alleged by Mr. Davies,' to mean that he had been guilty of impro per conduct. The result of that letter was that the bookmakers refused to bid with the plaintiff. On December 24 last the plaintiff attended the Calcutta race meeting, but he was assaulted by a police superintendent, and was excluded from the meeting. He, therefore, pi-ayed for a judgment for Rs. 30,000 as damages' for the defamation, for Rs. 5000 as dam...
