LABOUR OVER SEAS. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 19 November 1892

UBOUR OVER SEAS. Bradford (£ng.), dyers rolled down their sleeves and were locked out to the number of 3000 because they refused to work with blacklegs. To avert the threatened slash in wages the Welsh Miners' Federation calls on its 90,000 members to vote solid for joining the British Miners' Federation. A bomb exploded in Pam, alleged to have been placed by the Carmaux miners recently on strike. More likely by govern ment ageuts to excuse repressive laws. BeiJgian socialists marched—' 2000 - strong to hold a peaceful meeting in favour of adult suffrage. Law and order turned out with gatlmgs and mowed the people down. The London agents of tho Broken Hill Proprietary mine, have voted £400 to the managers for forcing freedom of con tract, and say that wages cxn now he Jcnocked-dowH-om-tbwds ? .. „_ The ironworkers at Carnegie's Pitts burg steel works are, according to the cabler, succumbing to starvation, and the Triumphant Demon is getting the men back at his own price. __JLlLSTEB w...

The New Australia Movement. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 19 November 1892

The New Australia Movement. P. J. Macnamara, of Southport, urging the intending emigrants to reconsider their choice of South America as a site for their Communal Settlement, writes : Would not the immense moral and edu- cational value of the experiment, if success- ful, be greatly diminished by the remote- ness of Argentina? No doubt many and most weighty reasons can be urged in favour of the South American republic. The new commonwealth, completely isolated from hostile political influences, and free to work out its allotted destiny without having to encounter the powerful opposition of vested interests in the com- petitive system, would have a fairer start in Argentina than here. And Lane's central idea is to concentrate the mental activities and the physical energies of his fellow co-operators in the work of building up the ideal state upon which they have set their hearts. This he believes — though it implies a severe wrench of the family and domestic affections — can best be a...

Leg-Irons. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 26 November 1892

Leg-Irons. Probably the true cause of President Harrison's downfall is^o4-eiouad in the Labour troubles of the last year. No Go vernment can possibly ~ttver1&~aroiumiaiF~ one- vote -community that ^usesthestate machinery and the military forces to assist employers of labour in reducing the wages of their workmen. The crack of the Pinkerton's repeating rifles at Homestead and the roar of Government cannon at Idaho sounded, tbe death knell of the Harrison Government. The same thing on a smaller scale is the contemporary history of New South Wales. A protectionist ring controls the People's Treasury and uses miUtary^md police to overawe the ' com mon herd ' at Broken Hill who object to -amdi-round reduction of then-TTOges.— HRi- puts the men in leg-irons who have brains to think for their comrades, but the clank of those leg-Irons is the death -knell of ISir Iscariot Dibbs and his crew of piratical renegades.

Strive and Wait. FreeRre they to herd like cattle pennec' within their narrow grounds, Free to dwell in wretched hovels where in decency abounds ; FrwGB ruin health and morals, free to dig - an earlv tomb. Breathing pestilential vapours in an over crowded room. That's the liberty accorded unto millions o mankinlT^ ^~' '' Whose condition, priests have told them, is by Heaven's will designed. Liberty to toil for wages, not enough to rent a cot, ? Where jLlijjtlg air-and^sunshine might re; 2 lieve their bitteFlot.

A kanaka Labour Union. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 26 November 1892

A Kanaka Labour Union. A Sydney Couuespondent writes : — Why nott — The lmnakas are human beings— are workmen. Their 'wages' are low and their hours are long. This is the reason why the white slaves of Aus tralia -nVtiAAti fcn the inhrnductinn of the kanaka slaves. They are rivals. The dark skinned slave willingly sells his muscles at low rates because he is ignorant of his own full value. He does not know that when he agrees to work three years for £18 that he earns for his master perhaps £500. Why should not the white slaves teach their dark skinned brother that he is swindled thus in a most barefaced manner? Why should not the white slayes appoint a capable kanaka union organiser and send him to organise the kanaka ? The kanaka would like shorter hours and higher wages, and if they could be got to unite much might thus be done to increase the cost of kanaka labour to the (Queensland planter. The proposed -©rg«toisation~would need to Ire strictly a secret one, with grips, pass wor...

Listen ! Fathers. What made my heart, at Nevrstead, fullest swell ? 'Twas not the thought of Byron, oi his cry ?

Painted {he will'd it) in the gallery They hang ; the picture doth the story tell. _ . Behold the stern, mail'd father, staff in hand ; The little f .»ir-haired son, with vacant gaze, Where no more lights of sense or know ledge are ! Mcthinks the woe, which made that father stand Baring his dumb remorso to future days, Was woe, than Byron's woe, more tragic far. Matthew Aunolh.

FARMERS AND LOW WAGES. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 26 November 1892

FARMERS AND LOW WACES. By Ohablks M'Gabtht. 'High wages are ruining the country; farming won't pay without cheap labour ; the- unionists . -through their strikes to maintalnimpo33ible rates have caused the bad times.' So said a neighbour of mine. and so indeed many people really think. Now it is true that fanning as carried on by the peasant proprietors and mortgagors of New South Wales and Queensland is not generally profitable. But then how could he be with railway freights so high, taxation so heavy, and the farmers con tributing so much more than their share to the revenue. — The farmer competes for profits, and finds that 'every gate is thronged with suitors, all the markets overflow.' A horde of commission agents come between him and the consumer, and through lack of organisation ana co operation he is forced to submit to the exactions of ' rings' and ' corners,' and is thus at the mercy of a gang of fleecers as truly as the homeless wage slave. — The farmer of old-drew-aM- -h...

TfiE EDITORIAL MILL There never was ft time when the Labour Cause stood more in need of the_guidance of thoughtful and dear-sighted men than it does in Australia, and espeeiaUy-in Queensland, to-day. We have justoome out of another unsuccessful strike, tor although the scene or conflict was a thousand miles and more from many a shed and mining camp whose earnings helped to furnish the sinews of war the full normal force of hard-time Unionism throughout Australia was arrayed against the director* nf the Broken Hill mines. On the other hand we are about to face a j general election the result of which is beyond conjecture, but which it is ob vious will depend veiy largely upon the extent to which a few broad and really not vary abstruse economic principles have permeated the workers as a body, or at feast that portion of them lucky enough to claim the right to vote. At such a junc ture it is more than reassuring to find in one's letter-box the proof sheets of one of the most earnest a...
