The Treatment of Subject Races. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 17 May 1919

The Treatment of Subject Races.

Germany refused to recognise any rights except those of her own unscrupu lous traders.

LEST WE FORGET. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 17 May 1919

LEST WE FORGET. No respectable newspaper could cata logue ALL the political crimes of the pre sent State Government, but as electors' political memories 'are usually short and hazy a few reminders can do no harm. The present Government was created by the unprincipled coalition -of Liberal humbugs itching for office at any price and Labor renegades ready to sell honor, principle and country in order to hang on to place, power and pay. The electors thought that a harsh and unjust judgment when first uttered, but the last two and. a-quarler years' ex perience has more than justified the worst things said of them, and not only Labor, but Nationalist electors are forced to ad mit that in bungling incompetence, cor ruption and insincerity this Government has had, lio equal in New South Wales during the present generation, if ever. The infamous conspiracy which trapped the workers into the strike of 1917 was prepare^ for by the deliberate closing doWn of partially-finished railways all ove...

EDITORIAL. PADDINGTON BY-ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 17 May 1919

EDITORIAL. PADDINGTON BY-ELECTION. The election for Paddington on the 24th of this month is a trial of strength between the 'Haves' and the 'Have- nots/1 and every worker and every demo crat who beilev'es in political action must vote for the Labor candidate, Larry O'Hara. Neither the Lab.or Platform nor. the Labor candidate are ideally perfect, but they soar above the others, even as Mount Kosciusko transcends an ant-hill. There are two professed soldiercandi dates in the field, against whom as in dividuals we know nothing and insinuate nothing. . But BOTH OF THEM ARE OFFICERS, who have not suffered one tenth of the hardships, and indignities en dured for months and years by the com mon soldiers. Compared with the . privates, the offi cers are highly-paid, well-fed, treated with more, consideration and respect, and on their return are provided with the soft, cushy billets, as long' as there are any to be given away. ? The ordinary soldiers' grievances are not their grievances, and ...

The handing over of the treaty to the £ferman delegates was announced in the Sydney press a few days ago. In one newspaper the headings, spread over three columns, were as follow: 'Germany Hears Her Sentence,' 'Studied Insolence of Boche Delegates,' 'Rantzau's Impudent Speech,' with a sub heading, 'Courtesy to Hogs.' Rantzau requested individual inter views with President Wilson, M. Ctemen ceau, and Mr. Lloyd George. All refused. —Cable, 10/6/'19. PARIS, May 8. 'Germany has heard her sentence.

ROUND THE SHOWS [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 17 May 1919

I ROUND ffi SHOWS I . {By JANE SffiDONS.) tTHAT AMERICAN PRODUCER. r The American picture producer really has no time for himself. In a recent issue of one of the premier motion picture jour nals of America, he talks about . what America is going to do in the future pic ture world. The tone of each producer is about the same, running from that of 'Oh. the foreien films are a joke,' to 'America is always on the right track, and is in this.' He foresees no changes — comedy, drama, farce, everything will re main : the same. Mary Pickford and Charlie Chaplin will still be where they are; the star will dominate everything; melodrama will be the keynote of all supers-productions, and, in fact, the war will make no difference whatever. Perhaps the pi'oducer, confronted with his own surplus war-films, is a little chagrined. After all, it was pretty hard on hifri. He thought he was going to^ make J so many millions out of' the war,: . and it stopped just at the wrong tiirie; . - The'p troubl...

A Daughter's Letter [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 17 May 1919

[?] . . . ? ? ? . j Dear Mother, — Somebody announced the other day the birth of the -twentieth child of fthe family under the names, 'Foch Haig Kamerad.' It is a grotesque fancy, and, to my mind, a most unpleasant one, that . would hang about a little child's neck the memory of the world's greatest, nuirder. Yet, mother, it seems that we are bound to have the horrors of the last four years kept before us for a -very long time. The crippled men in our streets lose their significance. We have got used to them; and even the blind boy, led by his lame companion, calls out only a momentary heart-stab of sympathy. _ Where so many suffered there is little novelty to rouse interest in the case of one. No, the sufferings of the war are being rapidly forgotten, while the talk about glory and- the brag about victory go on. That is one of the worst features of a great international struggle. The shames and pains and horrors are lightly passed over, and a tradition, goes on to the next generati...

4S^^^^^^^^^SR TOYS. When Fritz and I were boys at school But twenty years ago, He made the toys with tack and tool That pleased my playtime so.

THE PICTURE. When the people's pennies came tumb ling down on the pavement where he wrought his strangely fascinating pictures in high colors of red and turquoise and lavender, the old street artist's crippled grandson gathered them in with never a word. He knew in his heart how his grandfather despised the pennies, and how he loathed the hideous chalks with which he worked. But years of disappointment had brought him to this, and the boy, childlike still at eighteen, a...

The Betting Market [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 17 May 1919

The Betting Market Bookmakers anticipate heavy betting business on the Doncaster and Cup. Their expectations are based on the fact that very little wagering has taken place dur ing the period of the restrictions. Hun dreds of people who never miss making an early straight-out bet or taking a double have refrained from doing so this year owing to the uncertainty in regard to holding the A.J.C. Meeting. Consequently the bookmakers anticipate there will be a rush to get on when the course is reached. During the week the chances of the light weights were mostly discussed, and West Molcng. Greg, and Phast Boy found back ing for the Cup. A heavy commission for Amberdown in the Doncaster was exe cuted on Wednesday, and Kaipai (6.7), a stable mate of Cetigne, was also well backed for that race. The relative posi tions of the most fancied horses are as follow:— DONCASTER HANDICAP. Publican. Sydney Damsel. Baltic Sea. Cetigne, Dick Meagher, Wedding Day. Sobrina, Quaestor. Princess Lucy.
