The Dangerous Folly of Masks. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 3 May 1919
The Dangerous Folly of Masks* The 'Labor News' was the first paper] in Sydney to denounce both the wearing of masks and the inhalation of poisonous], zinc fumes as preventives of influenza* The latter has been discontinued, bujj the dangei-ous practice of shutting out( oxygen from the lungs and breathing] carbonic acid is still compulsory, angl free breathing is a crime. i There is ample proof that the mask$ are useless, as from the time -they werK made compulsory the disease has cons tinued to spread with alarming rapidity and increased virulence. £ Apart from the diminished resistance resulting from lowered vitality, the maslw'' ' wearing habit concentrates the mind on} the disease and creates that dread whieiif is one of the most fertile sources of ill^' ness. Also the belief in the efficacy oil the mask tends to cause neglect of othejjl and much more useful precautions, ♦ J. D. Fitzgerald's desire to pose as th2f great genius who saved the State fromf the influenza plague has le...
JUDD TO BE JAILED. WHERE THE WORKERS WENT WRONG! [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 3 May 1919
JUDD TO BE JAILED. WHERE THE WORKERS WENT WRONG! The High Court of Australia (five? Judges present) has unanimously upset the decision of the State Full Court in the' Judd case, and ruled that Judd must come up for sentence on the opening day; of the next term (1st June) for making statements 'prejudicial to recruiting.' Thus ends the disgraceful and relents less persecution of Ernest E. Judd by the' present Federal 'National' Government of Tory renegades, backed up by a bench; of class-biased Judges. . - It will be remembered that the Go-^ vernor*s Conference, called to secure con-* ciliation and concord between the mill-* taristic wolves and the industrial lambsv passed a jingo resolution in favor of re-4 cruiting. , This the Sydney Labor Council was asked to endorse, and Judd moved an! anti-war amendment, which was carried'.- Clearly, if his speech to less than 20$ persons 'prejudiced recruiting' then its publication by the newspapers amongl two hundred thousand must have done a'...

THE PEACE CONFERENCE DISRUPTED. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 3 May 1919
THE PEACE CONFERENCE DISRUPTED. Italy wants most or the land on the Eastern side of the Adriatic Sea, until recently owned by Austria-Hungary. Particularly does she covet Fiume, a little city of mixed races in the Gulf of Istria. President Wilson says the new Re public of Jugo-Slavia must have one open door to the sea, and this being the only one left Italy cannot have it To prove the justice of his argument, Wilson published his views and the reasons for stoutly maintaining them. This is a most statesmanlike document, and fully maintains bis case for giving this port to the new Slav State. The Italian delegates thereupon with drew from the Conference, and are every where starring — through the land, arousing anew the jingo feelings of their excitable countrymen. All this would be very amusing only for its tragic and colossal stupidity,, As nations are organised to-day, trade wars end in trade peaces, and each nation which fails to get what it requires hates its more successful neig...
EDITORIAL. THE BOY-FLOGGING ATROCITY. NAVAL BRUTALITY IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 3 May 1919
EDITORIAL THE BOY-FLOGGING ATROCITY. NAVAL BRUTALITY IN AUSTRALIA. The flogging of the Tingira boys is one of those disgraceful and brutal exhibi tions of Australian militarism which de mands not merely an inquiry but the un qualified sack for those responsible. The facts, briefly stated, are that the boys on the Training-ship Tingira, wearied of being confined to their ship for weeks, to avoid infection, broke quarantine and went ashore at Lyne Park, where they enjoyed their liberty for a brief spell. The boys were induced to . take this course partly because they WERE BOYS, but mainly because their officers were not prepared to submit to the same re strictions which they imposed upon those under their charge, and as the 'flu is no respecter of persons the boys naturally felt contempt and resentment for such lopsided discipline, It has been publicly stated in the press ?and not contradicted that the officers went ashore whenever they pleased, and returned to the training - ship, wi...

There was no need for the blind man to be playing there on the corner at all; for good work and good pay awaited him in the Institution, and he knew it. But he preferred his music, and whether the passing crowd dropped a penny or a shil ling in his little tin box mattered not to him. He was alone in the world save for his music, and poverty with it was better than riches without. There was no need for the woman to be there either; for her hands were young and capable,- and she knew she had chosen the street...

An American Socialist on. Taxation. -. Never again, gentlemen of the pluto cracy, never again! Never will I be found advocating a programme which my enemies can charge would put the burden, of taxation on the poor man and let the rich man escape. I wish to tax him, not with a Single-tax, but with an Infinity tax! I wish to tax not merely his land, but also his house, his stocks and his bonds and his. money, his automobiles and his polo-ponies, and his wife's jewellery, his prostitute newspapers, and his anti-social propaganda organisations with their limitless slush-funds. I bear the rich man no personal ill-will, but I wish to break his power over human affairs, and to that end I am out to get, . not merely land taxes, but -income taxes and excess profit-taxes a.nd inheritance taxes. .

EDITORIAL THE TAINTED WHEAT SCANDAL. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 10 May 1919
EDITORIAL. THE TAINTED WHEAT SCANDAL. The villainous attempt of the Holman Government to poison the people of N.S.W. with flour made from bad wheat is surely the limit of criminal audacity. Of ail articles of diet among the white races whoaten bread is the most widely used and the most indispensable. Of ;ill wheat-growing countries Aus tralia, by nature and by circumstances, ran best afford to provide abundance of bread of the best quality for all. One thing is clear, if the wheat had been good, as Holman claimed, then the millers' would buy it without forcing. Also, if reasonably good the British Go vernment would not have rejected it while the war was still going on and mil lions were short of bread and glad to get even second-class quality. During the war the operations of the Wheat Pool have necessarily divided the old wheat from the new. - The shortage of shipping prevented the despatch of much wheat which had been sold to the British Government, and before one crop could be ex...

Labor's Policy. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 10 May 1919
Labor's Policy. The Labor Party, under the leadership of Mr. John Storey, have put forward some definite legislative proposals for the next campaign. Among other things, they propose to nationalise the mining industry, paying for mines by means of interest-bearing bonds, the price to be j determined by the actual present value of the properties resumed. The 'Daily Telegraph' calls this 'confiscation,' and the 'Evening News' calls it hoisting the 'black flag of piracy.' j Now, if the Party proposed to buy in I non-interest bearing bonds, or if it did not propose to pay for them at all, these shrieking mouth-pieces of Reactionary Toryism could not have said anything worse about them. It, therefore, means that these organs of 'Nationalism' are ready to plunge the country in anarchy and revolution by de nouncing and opposing even the most moderate and generous proposals which, if they^tferr, do so by giving the alleged owners more than their due.
