THE EDITORIAL MILL. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 5 November 1892

THE EDITORIAL MILL A Chiei-JuBticeship is as far above the brack of most lives as the snow-capped mountain peak is above the coming and going of the dwellers on the P^nf. It is &e goal of a privileged few and of that few in a whole generation two or three only scale the height. Still, for those who play ~..M-.fc with the stars, the world has bet ter things in store than chief -justiceships ; and Griffith, as everybody knows, had hw eye upon the Premiership of a Federated Australia. Some say that he lusted aftera peerage, a Secretaryship of State in the lm ueriol Cabiner. an f the GovoraorGeneral ehip of the Southern globe byway of an asylum for extreme old age.

Fixing up that "Address of Congratulation." [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 5 November 1892

Fixing up that 'Address of Con gratulation.' A man recently released from St. Helena on an unexpired sentence of three years' imprisonment for forpery, and a rela tive of the Mayor of Brisbane are hawk ing round, at' 10a. a day, the joint mayoral address of congratulation to M'llwraith, Grab & Co.

But as it was too much to expect the Investment Company to be seriously impressed with a certificate of honesty from such people ^and the address, you know, ia to be sent to England to influence the Company against proceeding with the Sandgate Pier case), it was necessary, by hook or by crook, to give an appearance of honesty to the document by securing the names of some persons not actually quaking before the mammoth syndicators, and hence the wildes...

ALL THE BETTER FOR YOU. A Word to Farmers and Selectors. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 5 November 1892

? AiifflHETTEB fO^YflU. A Word to Farmers and Selectors. Twentyyearsago, when Anthony Trollope visited Australia, the free selector was the great bugbear of the pastoralist. The squatters told Trollope that the selector wus ' a sheep-stealer and a cattle-duffer,' that *' the free selecting farmer cannot live on his farm by honest labour, and that he will therefore live dishonestly ; the normal free selector selects in order that he may be enabled to steal cattle with impunity, ana live alter ttiat tasiuon.' Toe tanner and pastoralist lived the proverbial cat and dog life -till the rise of the great labour organisations ; now~ the pastoralists, in _Jheir1dread_oX Unionism, are claiming tbe selector as a man audnaro~tlier7~lalking' about the interest of the man with 100 acres heavily mortgaged being identical with that of the landlord with hundreds of miles untaxed country.

The Idaho Democratic Convention sees in the whole proceedings of the government in this strike a scheme- to drive out the Demo cratic voters and secure the capture of the btate by the Republicans. But the real significance is much deeper. It is a de claration of war by the United States government against any and all trades -unions and should be no regarded — Unless ? it is emphatically denounced now, it pre cracy until every vestige of freedom on the part of workingmen will ta obliterated. The danger is not now prospective, but present. A military despotism is no longer impending but actual.

The Melbourne "Age," and the Broken Hill Sentences. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 12 November 1892

The Melbourne 'Age,' and the Broken Hill Sentences. Judge Backhouse must surely by this time have begun to feel uncomfortably con scious of having, even to the capitalistic mind, overstepped the bounds of prudent justice in the monstrous sentences inflinhvi by him upon our friends and comrades from Broken Hill. Commenting upon the trial, the Melbourne Age, which is essen tially a business man's paper, says : It will be generally admitted that the judge went considerably further than the occasion demanded in the sentence he passed. He had himself called attention to the fact that the law bearing on such offences in New South Wales was anti present English law, and hazarded, the opinion that the local Parliament would, before long, adopt more enlightened legis lation. He also, when called upon to pass sentence, described the duty as a painful one. Under these circumstances, what need was there for him to treat the strike leaders as thouerh they were criminals be longing to a desperate...
