In polities. Sir James Graham fights the Bogus Labor Party. Tet 'Labor' Member Sam Smith (of the B. L.P.) and 'Labor' Mem ber Andy Kelly (of the BJiP.) proposed andseconded Graham for the office of Mayor of Sydney. Recently Sydney ' Shirker' in Biuusicu uuk oae aruunnduu VAiuri1 was to be the happy hnnting-gjraond of certain 'Labor' Members now straggling into barristerial uniform. Speaking of W. M. Hughes, the 'Tocsin' says : ' He has recently passed the legal intermediate exa mination of New South Wales, but proposes to use his legal knowledge for the workers before the Concilia tion and Arbitration Boards to Ub , there established.' - ignifioant 1 Hpurgeon said : ' Nowadays com. promise and' indifference rale su preme, and instead of solid grit, we have putty or wax.'

' Daily liareygraph ' says the fact that Hughes beat Graham for the Sydney Mayoralty proves that it's wiser for the aldermen to elect the Mayor than for the people to do so. Whioh is great logic, isn't it ? Jobs are the aim and guiding principle of the B.L.P. and the offioial ring of the Trade Union section who have been fighting the tailoresses. But do the workers recogaise or understand the tre mendous power and influence Ma sonry is playing in their ranks f If not, it is time they did. Most of the B.L.P., voted for the Kirkcaldie job becaase they are looking for the same sort of thing themselves,

Communication from D. Aldous withdrawing from contesting the vacant se its on the Executive. Messrs. Proud and Neill being the only other nominations, they were deolared duly elected to the posi tions vacated by Messrs. Rumeisen and Morrish. The People report was received from the manager. Other routine and general busi ness was transacted, and the meet ing adjourned. Bavister, the political blackleg, insulted the tailoresses and their delegates at the Labor Council and drove them oat of the room. Every worker should remember this. If the Tailoresses' Union is smashed the spineless crew of offi cials and the 31 who voted with them on the Labor Counoil must take the responsibility.
Slightly Personal. [Newspaper Article] — People — 14 December 1901
Slightly Personal. Thb writer regrets that, owing to oircumstances he has no power to control, he is compelled to deoline - the kindly invitation of the Rich mond River 'comrades to visit them at Christmastide. To refnse an in vitation to go to the Richmond is about the biggest sacrifice a Social ist agitator can be oalled upon to make, and the friends there will not need to be told that their disappoint ment will not be so great as mine. To leave Sydney at this juncture wouljl mean to neglect much im portant work, to throw a deal of responsibility on other shoulders, and perhaps also to incur financial obligations the movement is not iust now in a position to carry. Some day — perhaps when yet an other Christmas season comes round — should the invitation be repeated ( or even if it shouldn't), circum stances may reAer suoh a pleasur able trip possible. — H.E.H.

Victorian Fakirs. [Newspaper Article] — People — 14 December 1901
Victorian Fakirs. The executiue officers of the Amalgamated Miners' Association have abandoned the Creswiek Bianch in its fight against the con tract system. Lawn, the President of the A.M. A., has earned the ' re spect and esteem ' of the mine owners. Consequently, Peacock, as secretary or tne J&ineowners Association,' sought his aid in forc ing Creswiek Branoh to accept the contract system. The result has been an order from the executive officers for Creswisk to surrender. — ' Tociin.' The Ballarat Branch of the Miners' Association, of which Lawn is secretary, has degenerated into a mere society for providing aooident fund. It iB treated with contempt by the mine owners. Servility and indifference to theirwelfareasabady characterise the majority of its members, and treachery is not unknown. — 'Tocsin.

Mr. G. Galloway wa^inthe chair, and explained tnat the meeting had been called for 7 o'clock, possibly by mistake.

It was reiolved to proceed with the meeting. The chairman then explained the Counoil's recommendations, and said it appeared to him the dele gates didn't understand the second shift matter.

Accidents at Cockatoo. [Newspaper Article] — People — 14 December 1901
Accidents at Cockatoo. Since we paid that visit to the Government Engineering Works at Cockatoo Island, two aooidents hare occurred. In one case a man had a finger chopped off, while measuring some work : and in the other a man had his nnna nmanVinfi nn n travAllinir crane. Both of these accidents might hsva been prevented. In the first case, the starting and stopping gear is six or seven yards from the front of the lathe where the man worked, and, in order to savie his employer's time, he measured the work while the ma chine was in motion. Starting gear should be where an operator can manipulate it from the front of a machine where he stands in ease he should get caaght. In the other case the man's head came in contact with a pro jecting bolt under the roof while working the travelling crane.

The CLASS STRDG0LB Here in Australia we hear very little about the class struggle— the struggle between capital and labor — that is going on in the older countries. It is to the interest of the capi talist class and its press, that suoh news should be scanty as po« sioie, tor tear tne Australian work man should realsae it and wake np, rouse himself apd take his place in (he ranks of those who are fighting for the emancipation of labor. The ' Hamburgisohe Correspon dent,' tho— organ of the Unitpd Trades Organisations, gives us news of a fight of the tobaooo-workers in Nordhanaen. The employers are attempting to break their union. The fight bas lasted now about six months, and still they hold out, loyally supported by their fellow trades-nnio (lists, not alone in Ger many, but all over the Continent and Great Britain. In the old countries the working men begin te see more and more that their inte rests are identioal, and opposed to the capitalist class. They are not only organised nat...

The Word "Wife." [Newspaper Article] — People — 14 December 1901
' I The Word ' Wife.' What do you think the beautiful word 'wife' comes from f It is the great word in whioh the I* nglish and Saxon languages conquer the French and Greek. I hope the F. ench will sOme day get a word for it instead of tt'eir fern me. But what do you think it comes from P The great value of the Saxon words is that they mean something. ' Wife ' means weaver. Yon must be either housewives or house moths ; reme*uber that. In the deep sense you muBt either weave men's fortunes and embroider them, or feed npon them and bring them to decay. Wherever a true wife comes, home is always around her. The stars may be overhead, the glowworm in the night's cold grass may be the fire at her feet ; bat home is where she is, and for a noble woman it stretches far around her, better than houses ceiled with cedar or painted with vermilion ; shedding its qniet light for those who are homeless, 'I his, I believe, is the woman's trne place and power. — John Buskin. . jTrans nrennan is a l...
