THE ACCOMMODATION AT PIALLAWAY. I Dear Worker, — At Piallaway roll call on Sept. 1 the cooks declined to be balloted, for until the -manager drew water to the hut: This he promptly declined to do,' so a delay from breakfast to dinner-time re sulted. Eventually a compromise was ef fected- by his offering to clean a well out and puf the pump in working order — to take two days for. same— the cooks mean whilft t.f» p.n.vrv wntpr, till H ivnc vi»nrlv Upon this understanding, the ballot was then proceeded with; and cook installed. The accommodation, here has never been brought up to the Act, although, so many i years have gone by, and ' the award lias i also been in force for four seasons. The latter reads in part, ' The employer to i find choking utensils, wood, and water.' i Now, why was it left for the cooks at this shearing to have to demand water to be i brought to the hut, which should have al-. I ready been provided years before? Surely some one previously cooking must be to blame...

THE LEVY AT TABRATONG. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 7 September 1910

THE LEVY AT TABRAT0NG. Dear Worker,— I notice in issue of Aug. 31, a letter from Mr. Smith, th'e sec ? |-.c. retary, stating that from what he iknows he feels sure there is some mistake with regard to the men at Tabratong -taking the .levy. I am at .a 'loss-tfcunderstand , where Mr. Smith received his information; i -have called two meetings of thra mem bers here, and on .the first occasion there were tnree m iavor oi paying rue levy; but when I called a second meeting to know if the levy tickets were, to be issued or returned,' a unanimous vote was given in .favor of returning them to the office, although three then stated that they were willing to take the levy in the next shed. From the manner in which Mr. 'Smith has written .it appears that the rep. is held ? responsible' for the actions and doings of all the members in the shed. I think I have done all I could here, and I am sur prised to think that we have- been ^shear ing here five weeks and we have not; heard , of any organi...

OLD BALLADS. III. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 8 September 1910

OLD BALLADS. hi. I am not sure that this letter was meant for publication, but it has so pheasant a mingling of old world and new. that- -it ought to have more, readers than one: — A word or two on the ballad, supple mentary to what you have been saying on Page Twenty-One. To my mind the bal lad is the 'primal . scream of pain. -made intelligible, in many cases softened down by reason of delay, in finding expression. The Scotch have been the most starved and tortured race in history; hence their adroitness in the ballad. (They took to commerce later than the Jews,- ??otherwise might have had to yield them the ballad supremacy). Doubtless the moun tainous nature of the Scottish country helped, as 'the mind was- always being shown fresh pictures. No race living in contentment on fat river flats ever made ballads of the ? quality of the Scotch ones; it ran to maize and pumpkins instead; though you will remember Win wood Reade's dictum ('Martyrdom ,^of Man') that no race cultivates the ...
