THE BROKEN HILL STRIKE. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 12 November 1892

THE BROKEN HILL STRIKE. The Broken Hill strike has collapsed; und the Tsnly satisfaction for the workers of Queensland lies in the fact that it did not breakdown for want of help fr^m them. In point of fact there was no lack of funds at all, nor would there have been if the reasonable prospects of success. What smashed tbe strike was the outrageously unfair attitude of the Go vernmeutnnxon- tinually renewing -the exemptions, and in this connection the treachery of Dibbs and Barton, but especially of Slattery (the oily Minister for Mines), must never be forgotten. The men fought splendidly, and the women, too. The foreign unionists whom~thB~directors~have singled^rat~for special punishment likewise deserve the 4ughest praise. Let everyone only fight half - so well when the next general election comes round, and there is a chance of returning members who will go for nationalising not only the mines, but the whole of the country's lands. The following subscriptions have been received, ...

The churches are interested in orthodoxy, and the cause of the sect has been and is being put before the cause of man and woman. Splendid edifices have been raised to wor ship (or show off) in, while the grand temple of poor suffering, seething humanity has been left a heap of shapeless ruins. Most of the clergy -are to a large extent bound up with the wealthy and well-to-do middle-classes, and they only know the working man afar off as an object of charity. The practical common sense of progressive Australia is beginning to chal lenge the^mlpit—JWhat we need today is^ the Gospel that the humble Carpenter preached, that rebukes purse-proud luxury ^g^rroSahce, ^inbrotBerlyTrejadicerof caste and class ; that shall preach for all the one Gospel of human brotherhood, the practical religions...

LABOUR OVER SEAS. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 12 November 1892

LABOUR OVER SEAS. There are 400 Socialist Leagues b Denmark with .a membership^ 32,000. ? The British municipal elections are now on, and Labour has come out on top in several towns. Unemployed Jews are processioning in London barefooted. That noiseless tramp of agony is significant of much. English and German capitalist papers have Bhrieked revengeful pieansof joy over the monstrous sentences on the Barrier unionists. - Yorkshire ooalminers suggest a week's enforced idleness without pay to reduce the output. Why not fewer hours a week, that would be Homething like. Reduction of working hours by legis lative enactment and direct labour repre sentation in Parliament has been deter mined on by British railway employees. The London Dockers' Union, and meetings of London unemployed, have con demned the monstrously unjust sentences passed on the Broken Hill unionists. Democracy amongsirtlie native tribes of South Africa means the power of the people to remove their supreme chief if he vi...

The Municipal Council would not vote any money, they could not afford to buy it themselves ; there only remained the alternative of sending out touts to tout for it. Everyone who crossed the ferries was teased to give a bawbee to buy white wash. I saw the municipal servants had to give though niauy objected. — After a terrible amount of touting they got suffi cient, but the statue after being white washed was dirtier than ever. Then one of tho mayors died, u- the great relief of his fellow citizens. His friends carved a poodle in his likeness, and placed it at the ft*- 1 of the Great Syndicator. This they paint...

Labonr in Thursday Island. The bulk of the work on the island is done by contract and when possible' the contracts are let South, which of course brings batch after hatch of men into the narrow- limits of an already over-crowded market and keeps the men on the island so poor that they- are glad to accept what arn.CTAR f.Vinv nan trah Sin far f.ttn nmnlnvAro have scored ; 1 ut not content with that they are now employing kanakas to do white men's work wherever they get a chanoe. Kanakas are behind the . back stores, stacking timber in the timber yards, and doing work of every imaginable kind. And all the while our fellows absolutely dare nob say a word — much less call a public meeting to protest — for the island is so small that the employers would be on them in a minute, and they and their families have to live. As it is they are on the verge of starvation with an average of three or four days work a week and the kanak aalways on hand to stop any chance that a white man mierht have...
