WORTH REPRINTING. We're so Very, Very Low. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 29 October 1892

WORTH REPRINTING We're so Very, Very Low. We plough and sow— -we're so very, very low ?

Our place we know — we're so very, very low, ? -'-.-:--_ ? 1^_ 'Tie down at the Landlord's feet ; We're not too low, the bread to grow, But too low the bread to eat.

The Coming Man. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 29 October 1892

The Coining Man. Oh, not for the great departed, Who. formed our country's laws, AndTtot for the braVest-hearted Who died in freedom's cause. And not for some living hero To whom all bend the knee, My muse would raise her song of praise But for the man to be. For out of the strife which woman la passing through to-day, A man that is more than human ~Sn~all yet be born, I say. A man in whose pure spirit No dress of self will lurk ; A man who is strong to cope with wrong, A man who is proud to work. A man with hope undaunted, A man with pod -like power, Shall come when he most is wanted, Shall come at the needed hour. He shall silence the din and clamour Of clan disputing clan, And toil's long fight with purse-proud might Shall triumph through this man. I know he is coming, coming, To help, to guide, to save. Though I hear no martial drumming, And see no flags that wave. But the great soul-travail of tfpian, And the bold, free thought unfurled, Are heralds that say he is on the way— -...

BYSTANDER'S NOTEBOOK [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 29 October 1892

BYSTANDER'S NOTEBOOK We are told that Lilley quits the bench through eicknBSB. ^NoTaneman believes it. The «;h1ef Justice resigns the judicial because he has been forced thobn. to resign. Tyranny can no longer endure the thorn in its side, and the reversal of his recent judgment (which may yet be upheld by the Privy Council) has given to M'll wraith $T longiooktsd for opportunity of wreaking vengeance upon him. It is, indeed, an open bccret that the Full Ckrartrhafr hardly delivered its judgment than one of the Government's jaekalls was despatched with an ultimatum to the Chief that he must go through the pretence of throwingup_hjs_ __billel»_jQr— else— s«bmft to betngTorcibly ejected. To kick Sir Charles Lilley off the bench would have been the work of a moment, and nothing would have pleased the corrupt majority in parliament better than to complete what they intended for an act of final ruin by depriving its object of his pension.

THE EDITORIAL MILL. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 29 October 1892

THE EDITORIAL MILL Who has not, some time or another, maybe amid the bustle of a Western shed at shearing time, maybe when strolling away from a mass meeting in the crowded city, anyhow when hie imagination was fired with all sorts of glorious possibilities, heard himself laughed at for a dreamer, and the Labour Movement for a social mirage. Drettrv enoueh and harmless enough in itself but a danger to soft-headed people like you and me. And who has not in his moments of doubt, when there were no bushmen with a turn for politics at hand, no echoes repeating to his eager heart the sonorous phrases of .the platform speaker, but only a daily newspaper before * him from which his lunch of damper and cold mutton had enticed a snarling leader like some mongrel from its kennel, asked himself whether after all the Great Reform was not, perhaps, rather a thing of the imagination. As a matter of fact, one of the most frequent charges against our Movement is that it is vague and husking in prac...

HOW WE AREJSCQVERNEO. Wednesday, October 26 : The mineral land-grab bill to block diggers mining on land grabbed by syndicates was read a third tune. Unmack moved the votes for railways. -He said that over £20,000 was saved on the estimates for the year nlriimigh f.hfliy wq,B 125 miles of additional line to maintain. * * * Allan, Hyne, 'Powers, Glassey and others opposed the prohibitive freights on flour and other produce, Glassey saying that low freights should be the order of the day and deficiency in returns made up by a land tax. The reduction in the estimates, he said, was brought about by discharges of railway men, increase in the work of lengthsmen and cutting wages in the loco motive departments, cleaners at 6s. 6d. a day giving way to youths at 2s. 3d. a day.

The men engagedJa the sanitary work of the city came out on strike on Saturday against a cut in wages, additional work, and other unpust conditions that would hardly be possible if they were servants of the Corporation, as they ought to be, in atond of the slaves of a contracting eom pany.
