BYSTANDER'S NOTEBOOK [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 22 October 1892

BYSTANDER'S NOTEBOOK! j — _ + — It is indeed strange that some of the farmers should seriously think of allying themselves at the next ? the farmers' election — to the big land' bogie. owners. The fear oTa land j tax is said to be their uiuiiivo. ioi it innu tax wouia produce results that would benefit farmers im mensely. Assume that the Labour Party impose a land tax of one penny in the £ on ? the unimproved valnn of all land above thed value of £500 The very large number of farmers who do not hold land of this value would escape -the tax altogether. Then consider in what way the tax would affect the farmer who paid it. A fanner with land of the unimptoved value of £4,000 (how few have as much) would pay £16 13s. 4d. a year, but the Queen-street landowner with land of the value of £20 000 would pay £83 6s. 8d., and the Tysons, Taylors, and Pattisons very much more This land tax would fill the Treasury with money, which could be used in removing the heavy {revenue duties the farmer ...

A War Song. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 22 October 1892

A War Song. Rise ! Australian sons of Labour, Hearken to the bugle's bray, Buckle on your shield and sabre, Gird you for the fray. Burst the Tyrant's chains asunder Which for ages you have worn ; Fear not the oppressor's thunder. Hail our country's morn ! Freedom is our only watchword, Union is our greatest strength ; Soon our voices shall be heard O'er earth's breadth and length. Waste no force in wordy warfare, Actions only now can save ; In this struggle all must share : Victory crowns the brave. Man the ballot-box, I tell you, Raze that House which overawes, Spurn the tyrants who would quell you, Justice first, then laws. March on comrades to the battle ; Up, and at them ! Sound alarms ! When we hear th' election's rattle, Comrades, then to arms !   Caleb.

The Church and Kanaka Slavery. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 22 October 1892

The Church and Kaimira Slavery. It will be remembered that the Baptist Association at its annual meeting in Ade laide did its best to whitewash the Queens land slave trade. This is how it came about : Viper Smith, the chairman of the association, realising the iniquity of the that it really is. Thereupon the money bags grew desperate and one after another rose to protest against 'what they thought,' says the Adelaide Chrittian Weekly, 'a one-sided or partial judgment of the case.' 'Amongst these,' con tinues the same paper, ' was Mr. G. S. Fowler, who was so much aggrieved at some of the statements made as to feel called upon to show his riimppm-. bation by taking the extraordinary and, to our judgment, altogether unwarranted and misguided course of resigning all the offices he holds in connection with the association. The Hon. Mr. Copley, too, in protesting against the nature of the evidence supplied, made somg^very disparatfing *Ttd 'yifnBr utterances in respect to the reliability...

HOW WE ARE MISGOVERNED. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 29 October 1892

HOW WE ABE MISGOVERNED. Wednesday, October IS : The Assembly put through the money votes for public instruction in the State Schools. Dickson went bald-headed against secular instruc tion. He, Perkins, and M'llwraith hinted at cutting teachers' salaries. There was considerable talk over the proposed con version of a kanaka hospital into a State school at Mackay. Black for the planters wanted £4000 for the disease incubator, as it was built our of the kanaka fund, and although it was handed to the Educa tion Department when the kanaka traffic was supposed to tease for ever, it is now wanted again for diseased 'cheap and reliable.'
