"MILITANTS AND MODERATES." (To the Editor. "Labor News.") [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 10 May 1919
'MILITANTS AND MODERATES.' (To the Editor. 'Labor News.') Dear Sir, — Under the caption of 'Mili- tants and Moderates' in your 'editor- ial,' you are unnecessarily offensive to those of the Labor Movement who, per haps, because they are not suffering from senile decay, bile, or a grudge against humanity in general, do not see eye to eye with your ideas of ,the necessity for what you describe as a 'militant pro gramme.' You say a 'moderate' may be de scribed in one word as an 'opportunist.' The policy you favor is the rankest form of Communism ever invented. You know also that, with a sound policy, we can win a majority in the next Parliament, and rectify the profiteering, rack-renting, and victimisation of Unionists that is rampant at present But your school of thought does not believe in gaining re form by degrees. You want the Whole loaf or none. You say, in effect, until we can establish a Socialistic State, we must ,, leave the starving kiddies go hungry; we must allow the shopg...
CORRESPONDENCE. MOUNT VICTORIA A.L.P. (To the Editor "Labor News.") [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 10 May 1919
[?] | ^ ?'*. MOUNT VICTORIA A.L.P. I '0 ' '(To the Editor, 'tabor News.') I :$Jeax Comrade,— W« desire to Inform I Sjm that your article, recently published I in' 'The Labor News,' re moderation and I ffie tactics of moderationists, meets en | tirely with our feelings, and we, as a Labor [ League, are proud that there are still ! : k few honest leaders who have the cour age to advocate such, views openly. Tour article stroneiy pointed out the ' hypo . crisy of sg-callech Labor --members try ing to camouflage the electors wjth mod eration. We' feel sure that this attitude of these members both . disgusts and alienates good staunch Labor voters. Finally, 'we consider Labor has the finest chance to win at the next elections if a fearless and honest platform is advo cated. — We are both, yours fraternally, 'WILLIAM MATTHEWS, Presidexit. , M. HYNES, Secretary. Mount Victoria A.LJ?., 27/4/'19.
LAND NATIONALISATION. (To the Editor, "Labor News.") [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 10 May 1919
LAND NATIONALISATION. (To the Editor, 'Labor News.') Sir,-— In Mr. Arthur Griffith's letter ap pearing in last week's 'Labor News' the following points are worthy of criticism. Conceding, for the sake of argument that the loss in present' capital value, ow ing to land values taxation, falls upon fresh purchasers unjustly, it is easy to see that a similar drop would occur if only future increment were taxed, in asmuch as a large percentage of land value is of a speculative nature. Even land put to its fullest use has a higher value than it would have if other land were not' held out of use. The suggestion to take the increment as a cash payment has the disadvant age that its effect is tantamount to rais ing revenue by the sale of land or issuing loans to cover expenditure — presumably on current expenditure, and not neces sarily earmarked for capital development. Lloyd George introduced this system in 1909 when he placed 25 per cent on the increment on leases reverting to the owners....
THE COST OF LIVING AND PRICE-FIXING. (To the Editor. "Labor News.") [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 10 May 1919
THE COST OF LIVING f-UD PRICE FIXING. : (To the Editor. 'Labor News.') Sir, — The latest Commonwealth statis tics show the rise in the' cost of living for March of this year, as compared with February, in all States except Queensland and South Australia, as an average of 1 per cent., and an increase since the out break of the war for Australia as a whole of 42 per cent., the increase varying in the different States from 17.3 to 63.3 per cent The outstanding fact remains that what could be purchased for 20/- before the war now costs 28/6 on an average in the Australian' States. It is all too patent that the burden of existence is daily be coming greater. Every housewife knows it to her cost when attempting to balance household accounts. We are told that Governmental interference with trade has caused dislocation, and almost ruined producers and business people in general. But tlie returns show that in the banks of Australia greater wealth exists to-day by some £45,250,000 than before...

The State Ministry, in its anxiety to pose as men of genius who had saved New South Wales from the plague which has decimated other lands, has become completely panic stricken, and has rushed from one device to another with the ill considered impetuosity of children vested with unlimited power t and extremely limited intelligence. The results of the despotic regulations have been nearly as tragic as the disease itself. The- restr...

Kandos New*. . -Fr-wn Our Own Correspondent.) The people of Kandos have naturally .1-een a trifle nervous lately about the pos wbility of a visitation from that dreaded pestilence, jumimonic influ^nzn, and ia*t Sunday afternoon we held an open-air tneetine to decide unon what slena ive wouia take to keep it out of our hitherto ?clean township. We have- no local cases, tout about a cotiple of weeks ago two sus ' peels were brought to the Rylslone Hos pital from tin* Vulcan Colliery; the yellow flag w;is hoisted, and all the ordinary patients turned out. As the same doctor who attendod these euspeebj lias to look after the ordinary cases of sickness in Rylstone, Kandos, and the adjoining districts, it was reason able to expect a virulent outbreak of the pestilence in our midst as soon as the doctor had time to distribute the germs. In addition to #!e 'possibility of con tusion from the doctor, we have a few foolhardy residents who are constantly travelling to nnd from the affected are...

LAW AND ORDER IN THE WEST. RETURNED SOLDIERS TAKE STRONG LEAD. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 10 May 1919
LAW AND ORDER IN THE WEST. RETURNED SOLDIERS TAKE A STRONG LEAD. In Fremantle, Western Australia, there is a small-scale revolution in progress. The wharf lumpers and the returned sol diers desired to work the lumping busi ness on the lawful and orderly system of Unionism. The capitalists wished to maintain con ditions of ? lawlessness . and injustice and anarchy by giving the work to pimps and spies and other non-unionistic pets of their own, with a view to crush Unionism and humble the workers in the. dust. They called this 'law and order,' and, of course, the capitalist, alias the Na tionalist Government, promised their bosses that they would use all the forces of the State to help them at the peoples expense to accomplish their criminal pur pose. The returned soldiers, or the vast ma- I jority of them, recognising that they were j of the working class, and that they had j been gulled by false promises and be trayed with' the customary treachery of the class which had used them, ...

[?] nineteen years, and as Sydney Damsel, Hem, Sobrina, and Sandbeer are also find ing backers it is likely that mares will have a good deal to say in this year's result. * # * Cetigne, who will have the services of the premier horseman, L. A. WalUcr, is 3trong!y in demand. He was third last J rear with 9st. 12lb., and with 21b. less is sure to be hard to beat. Baltic Sea, who} is equal second favorite with Cetinge, j meets that horse on 81b. worse terms, than in last year's event, when Baltic Sea ran unplaced with 7st. 101b. Baltic ( Sea has, however, shown marked im- j provement since, and will no doubt give 1 better account of himself this time. * « * Sydney Damsel (8st. 71b.) will have the advantage of the services of Ken Bracken, which, apart from the speedy imported mare's own abilities, will ensure her-ii big following. * ? ? * W.
