THE NEW ORDER. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 26 April 1919
THE NEW ORDER. The basis of the new order is being laid in the workshops, the mine, and the factory by those who, co-operatively, produce the world's wealth, and who, by being brought into close relationship with one another, can the more readily sea their collective importance. * m m A powerful Labor Press in every town throughout Australia is more essential in these days of reconstruction than ever before. The Tory Press is straining every nerve to mislead the people and make them hostile to every emancipatory ideal and movement of the working class.
FAILURE OF CAPITALISM. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 26 April 1919
FAILURE OF CAPITALISM. Capitalism has failed to provide for the wants of the people, in spite of the fact that so much is produced to-day in in dustrially developed countries that the markets of the world can scarcely absorb the goods. This glut of wealth has caused national strife amongst those who desire to turn into profits what they have stolen from Labor. * # * This struggle has become so keen that, as we have said, it has taken a world war to attempt to decide who shall have the first claim upon the privilege of ex ploiting the workers of other lands by means ot wealth wrung from those at home. * # * Industrial development demands that the new order shall displace the old.
PARASITES. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 26 April 1919
PARASITES. Profit is that portion of wealth pro duced by the worker which is withheld from him. It matters not whether it is termed interest, dividend, rent, unearned increment, it is the same. ? ? * The laboring poor produce the means of life by their labor. . . . The idea is now gradually entering the poor men's minds that they may as well keep in their own hands the right of distributing the means of life they produce. — Ruskin. ? ? ? Christmas carols may be sung by white robed choirs, insipid and Pharisaical ser mons may be preached by modern priest6 whose intentions may be excellent, BUT THERE CAN BE NO PEACE OR BRO THERHOOD ON EARTH UNTIL THE GOVERNMENT OF A PARASITE CLASS IS OVERTHROWN and administration by the useful members of society take's its place.— Dr. W. J. Curry.
THE UNEMPLOYED SOLDIER. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 26 April 1919
THE UNEMPLOYED SOLDIER. The returned soldier question is an economic question, and it will not be long before the returned men realise that it is not the industrial unionist that keeps the cheap female clerk in the 'job he left behind him.' * * * He will soon realise that it is not the worker who extorts from him four and five hundred per cent, more for the right to live than it cost Jiim before he went away. When that time comes there will be trouble, and the, Tory Press and the Profiteers will have no one but them selves to thank. * # # Roughly speaking, we have about 90,000 returned men back in Australia, with some 180,000 more to follow. * # * That there is much unemployment amongst the returned men, none but tMe wilfully blind can deny. The Repatria tion Department's own figures show some 150 unemployed men in Brisbane, about 1200 in Melbourne, with corresponding numbers in every city and township in the Commonwealth. And the numbers are growing as the days go on. * * * Poverty...
The Smile of Mona Lisa. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 26 April 1919
The Smile of Mona Lisa. I had turned to the drab window of the little curio shop to hide the tears that would keep blinding my eyes; for I was miserable with a misery I could not un derstand, being young and desolate and alone in a city that seemed not to want me. Once in everyone's lite there comes that hour when one stands on the brink of the world as it were looking out into great empty spaces of hopelessness — the hour when one feels one is not wanted. I felt I was not wanted. I had just .been put off from a rather good situa tion because times. were slack; my board and lodging were not paid, and, between me and my next meal, there was just one shilling. It was then that I turned to the window so that the hurrviner crowd might not see my tears. And out from the mass of endless curios she smiled at me a smile of slow, mys terious warmth at once haunting and comforting. How different her face, I thought, from the Mary Pickfords and Theda Baras of the picture world! How different e...
"Not Wanted." LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS DEPORTED THREE TIMES. (To the Editor, "Labor News." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 3 May 1919
? ♦ 'Not Wanted.' LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS DEPORTED THREE TIMES. (To the Editor, 'Labor News.' Sir, — When will the mad jingo win the warites put a stop to the persecution of those whose only crime is that they happen to be born in some other coun try? These people were encouraged to come here by our Governments. Immi gration agents were paid to travel Europe, painting the glories of Austra lia in the most rosy colors. The per suasive and descriptive tongues of these gentlemen encouraged thousands of people to roll up their swags and make for Australia. ' Many Italians who settled here were sent away from this country a.gainst their will. Businesses were abandoned, and wives and children were left to take care of themselves, with very little assistance from the Government. Now it is the Russians who are in ill - favor, and, although several of them are guilty of no crime, they are lodged in jail without a trial, pending deportation. Take the case of one man — Paul Free man. A resident o...

How a Labor Government Could Abolish Slums. WHERE DISEASE GERMS FLOURISH. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 3 May 1919
How a Labor Government Could Abolish Slums. WHEflE DISEASE GERMS FLOURISH. The influenza germ, like most other malevolent microbes, finds its natural breeding place in the slums. Sunlight and fresh air are the first essentials of healthy human life, and the lack of these essentials in slum areas makes these regions a constant menace to the com munity. No one with an ounce of com monsense in their mental make-up took the slightest notice of the professional piffle which appeared in the daily press in the early stages of this epidemic, to the effect that physical fitness was no safeguard, and that, unlike typhoid, the spread of influenza was not accelerated by evil sanitary conditions. As a Labor journalist remarked at the time, this nonsense was simply a com fortable doctrine for slum landlords and negligent health officials. This epidemic, like every other outbreak of disease, re veals the slum landlord as a criminal to whom organised society should give no quarter. The slum rent-lo...
Corporal Murphy on Anzac Day. SPEECH AT BUNGENDORE. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 3 May 1919
?Corporal Murphy on Anzac Day. SPEECH AT BUN.GENDORE. Corporal Murphy, member of the Exe cutive of the Australian Labor Party, ad dressed a large meeting at Bungendore on the War, Repatriation and the Labor Movement. The chair was occupied by a veteran member of the Movement — Mr. Anderson, of Bungendore, aged 74. During the course of- his remarks the speaker stated that the day they were celebrating was one to commemorate the deeds of those who scaled the heights of Anzac four years ago. They were sup posed to be fighting for Liberty, Free dom of the Smaller Nations, and Demo cratic Government, and throughout the length and breadth of this land to-day all politicians, local Mayors, and aldermen are seeking popularity from the non thinking public by their utterances on Loyalty and lip-Patriotism. They talk of the great sacrifices these men have made, and what we owe to them. With huge processions, waving- of flags and banners, the playing of martial airs by brass bands, and by feast...
