OPEN COLUMN. The Railway Commissioners. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — People — 21 December 1901
OPEN COLUMN. The. Railway (Somaiis* sioners. TO THE KDITOS. Sib,— Now. that the 'Railway Commissioners ' have made a new departure by way of scooping in a few extrn pounds for their own private egjds, by getting their friends iif|. the Parliament of the State to jmbs a ' Commissioner's Salary Bill ' to raise their wages, would it not be advisable to have a few questions asked as to the value reoeived by the State for the in creased outlay, ' not only on the in areasad ontlav ' bnt for the ontlav without tbe increase. Now as it is at present, the three ' Gents ' concerned cost the State somewhere about £10,000, that is counting up their salaries at over £7,000 per annumn and putting their perks (at what /may be deemed m. modest estimate) at £3,000 (that is for their business pleasure trips to the different por ? tions of the State) whioh no doubt doubt is a very modest estimate when it is considered that they travel in a luxurious 'State carriage ' and are attended by a staff of Stat...
A FIGHT TO A FINISH. [Newspaper Article] — People — 21 December 1901
ft FIGHT TO A FINISH. Within the past few years, the oon fliot that haa been hitherto waged in an altogether irregular fashion between the forces of capital and labor in New Sooth Wales, and in fact in all the A ustralian provinces, has begun to assume rnnoh more definite proportions ; and events of recent occurrence have drawn muoh clearer (he class lines tbat divide the two opposing forces, and a revealing searou lignt nas Deen thrown on the unholj alliance that exists between the Bogus Labor Party element and the straight-out forces of capitalism. Capitalism, as represented by the Profit maker* and Sweaters — and their If gal guardians, the See Wise Party, backed np by their henchmen of the Bogus Labor Party— has much in i'B favor to-day. Previously, it had control of all the machinery of Government', the Jadiciary, the Power of Wealth, the Capitalist Press and the Fakir Press, the Bogus Labor Party, and behind all a rotten and corrupted Parliament composed almost ex clusively of...

BALMAIN SINKERS. STRIKE FOR SIX HOURS A DAY. [Newspaper Article] — People — 21 December 1901
SALMAIN SINKERS . * ? STRIKE FOB 8IX HOURS A DAY. Sous years ago, 'Nunquam' of the ' Clarion ' visited one of the deepest coal mines- in England, and was shown through the workings, 'after being lowered down a shaft some thousands of feet in depth. The. mine was a gassy one, and, as the men worked away stripped to the waists, the coal cracked and flew out at intervals, causing the visitors ho jump back in alarm aud the coal-hewers to lau-h at their timidity. What ' Nnmquam most wanted to know was how tbe management lured men from the woild above to work in anch a 'bogey-land ' ' Do you set traps for them ?' he asked And the under-manager replied, ' Ob, no ; these men earn good wages ; they make £2 a week.' That was the secret of it all. Two pounds a week for working in a vitiated at mosphere in the earth's bowels, with the fear of destruction and death perpetually above them ! At Balmain they are pinking what will be the deepest coal mine in Australia. The sinkers have picked and sc...

FARMING BY MACHINERY. [Newspaper Article] — People — 21 December 1901
PflRMJNG BY MA ?3H1NBRY. (From' N/T. People.' A fjew years ago the wheat ex porting countries of the - world had a great advantage over the Ameri can prodnoer in tbe ' cheapness ' of their labor. But while those countries have retained their primi tive methods of culture, the United States has been supplanting labor with machinery, until now, on the bonanza fa- ins of the west, it u estimated that 400 men — employed only during tbe season — and sup plied with the most improved ma chinery, produce as much wheat as 5000 Europeans working with the .primitive tools at their o rramand. Within a few years (here has be gun in agriculture what will shortly prove one of the greatest revolu tions in modern industry.

In All Lands the Same. [Newspaper Article] — People — 21 December 1901
In All Lands the Same. — ▼ ? D. A. Gillies writes from Casino : ' When The People, tolling of the infamous actions of the B.L.P., reached here, the expressions of indignation and contempt were numerous — and from persons in some cases who are not classcon scious Needless to tell you that we all sympathise with youraelf and other members of the fighting S.L.P. . . . Then, moreover, you have compelled the B.L.P. to show its band, likewise its oloven foot ; but then there are thousands of workers who will ba too blind to see either the hand or the foot, and Capital ism will use its press as a screen to beep the vulgar ga«9 from reaching its useful though ditty instrument, the B.L. Party. What a remark able similarity there «s between members of the Fakir species on both sides of the Pacific.

Upton and ttie President of the Union, re the victimising of. fifteen girls by Mr. Sam Hordern.
