A Hospital Ball. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 19 November 1892

A Hospital BalL Not long ago a ball was given in aid of , tho Dalby {%)-hutpiUl. Tuily-Bix couplet.' tnred-out-beaides_about a score of what a correspondent outwest^ef cribes as ' odd ones.' The couples paid 12s. Gd. on each double ticket. The friend who sends the information neglects to Btate the price of single tickets. At all eventB the double tickets alone would represent a sum of nearly £30, aud it is reasonable to suppose that the ' odd ones5' would be worth at least another £10. Out of that of course came the legitimate expenses. Then as though the amount waB still too large for the requirements of the hospital a clerk in the Q.N. bauk proposed the expenditure of £5 on cricketing materials ; the hapnyjdea was seconded by a dandy from the post office and carried, with the result that the magnificent sum of £2 17s. was eventually handed over to the hospital committee. That is how things are done at Dalby, and these are the kind of people who vote against admission on union tick...

PAUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 19 November 1892

— TOJSE ? By Gilbert Casey. [The following, written for the Queens land edition of the Wobkbr, raises a ques tion of the first importance to the Labou'1*) Movement throughout Australia, and a question, too, that merits most careful con* sideration from every possible point of view— Ed. W.]: My honest opinion is that there is not in Queensland one electorate that would re turn a man who placed his opinions unre servedly before it. To secure a seat in par liament men have had to hide their true ^convictions, baye had to pleaseopposing factione, have, in fact, had to become past masters in the art of ' double shuffle.' This has been true of (lie past and is most likely to be true of the future unless the people organise and sec that the organisa tions make themselves felt in parliament and have a firm grip of their members at all times.

Labour Justices. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 19 November 1892

Labour Justices. A.W.U. ORGANISER DILLON WRITES: I don't believe that half-a-dozen Justices of the Peace belong to the working class in the whole colony. This is a particularly Bore point for the bushraan, especially as the bench is so often called upon to decide questions affecting wages. Education or integrity count for nothing in a magistrate. Ascertain person was made a J.P. tome time asro. although our union had rejected Mm as its agent in consequence of his drunken habits. Fortunately, however, he had the decency to decline to sit. Another man was appointed on the recommendation of the sergeant of police; — Just-faneyrthe- sergeant creating his own bosses ! Surely amongst the working class we have a fair percentage of educated men of good character who would fill the position with honor to themselves and the country, and who would favourably vie with present occupants of the bench. In this district we have the father, ton, and son-in-law, com monly called 'the father, son, and...

THE EDITORIAL MILL [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 19 November 1892

THE EDITORIAL MILL Parliament is dead— positively dead— and it rests with us now to dig a hole for its festering carcase. In the shape of the Government of course its spirit may still be said to linger, but ghosts are harmless things at the worst, and the most that even a political ghost can do is the moresb table rapping in comparison with the convulsive shocks which when in the flesh it imparted to the moral atmosphere around ic. xnere pruuauiy never wm w the history of parliamentary government a more demoralised and utterly corrupt assembly than that of which this week has seen, let us hope, the last In an age of radicalism it was doggedly reactionary; in an age of aspiration towards economic reform it deliberately set about laying fresh burdens on the shoulders of the poor ; in an age of vaunted honesty of public life it broke every rule of conduct that makes faith in human nature possible.

SONG OF THE IMPRISONED POET. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 19 November 1892

SONG OK THE IMPBISONED POET. (From the German.) And if the tyrant blind mine eye Can he blot out the glorious sun ? And if in dungeon dark.I die Is Freedom's battle therefore-done? And if in fight I fainting fall With shattered shield and shivered spear, Yet at the cry— the clarion call New heroes rise, new helms appear.

Say ye— 'Right lies for ever crushed?' — H--pft-yp-n' p™™ «''!« will aspire? Because the soaring song ye've bashed Ana Bilver sound of one sweet lyre.

It purports to be an almost verbatim report of a meeting attended by about seventy members of the Australian Workers' Union held on August Oth at Oondooroo woolBhed. It was published in all seriousness; it has been copied_a9__a fair and impartial report and commented upon-as-stteh-by ^.-large-section otxhe capi talistic press.
