LABOUR OVER SEAS. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 26 November 1892

LABOUR OVER SEAS. Sbvekti per cent of the workers in Saxony_yield mTa!! they produce, JesjJB3Q_ a year upon which they toil and subsist. Over 500 strikes occurred in 'pro- tected' industries in the Triumphant Demon's republic last year. Ribbon* weavers in SwitoBerland_ are getting into a William Tell frame of mind over sweating tyranny. The London Press is rightly warning emigrants against making lor Australia, as they'll only search for work in vain. A pholetabian is a human being with nothing between him and hunger but his daily toil,— Hobace Gueklkv. Thb French Government proposes to gag that section of the press which it is powerless to dominate. Fubtheb severe restrictions have been adopted in New York against immigrants that the money kings think imperil their interests. - - The English Government has turned a couple of workers into Js.P., and out comes a cablegram as if a revolution had been effected. ___,__^ ? — — ? ?

BYSTANDER'S NOTEBOOK [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 26 November 1892

BYSTANDER'S NOTEBOOK The confidence trick is not the most -digaified-ioraaof-swiiidle, and the -dodge _______ by which the Govern TuTnrfc on the last night but one of Griffith's par TO MY-KLF AND CO. vanced' £12,000 to the Queensland Meat Export Company is about as impudent a piece of rascality as anything involving an 'advance 'of ^£12,000 from the public funds 4o one's self and one's friends could well be. Here are the facts. By an un expected slice of good fortune the Govern ment found itself in possession of that sum over and above the cost of administering the- Stock Act, — which the money waa obtained by taxation to meat. Then came the delicate question, how to dispose of it. It is of course so hard to find a free Aus tralian who does not object to being pauperised ! In this instance, however, thanks to a small clique of person «1 friends, Griffith does not seem to have had much troublo. The Queensland Meat Export Company had no objection to ' being pauperised ' — for the publ...

A Serious Complaint. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 26 November 1892

A Serious Complaint. Michael Quinn, Emudilla, writes : . I have been a unionist from the first, and this year and last I have been shearing at Gooyea and Emudilla. My name is well known, having appeared in yonr columns on more than one occasion. I have always '? subscribed to the cause of the unions, and gave one pound to the Argentine Move ment. Now I have a grievance. The way chairmen of sheds are elected and the way they conduct the affairs of the Union is something past bearing. I am sick at heart with what I have seen of late. Last week wet Bheep were brought to the shed. I, with others, objected to shear them, and Limy wtsre Lurried out. Aftet dinner other sheep that were certainly not wet were put in. Yet a number of men still objected. Others, including mysolf, stayed to work. The consequence was that some of those who objected to shearing tho dry sheep jnado-an^effigy^of -myself-and-put-it -ifl-my^ bunk, -writing on it 'Shearer of Wet Sheep ! The Crawler !

A Judge on Gambling. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 26 November 1892

A Judge on^rarabling. =- The other day Judge Chubb of the Queensland Supreme Court Bench de livered himself thus : The crime for which tLe prisoner is about to suffer is brought about by gambling. . . . The world as well as Australia is Buffering from three great evils— gambling, betting ana horse-racing. Gambling is the meaneEt of all vices, as it is only winning another man's tnoiiey without doing any wnrk fnrjt^ At all events if people m^K-^MitMg-tafi^TnustdoitL with their own money and not rob their employers. Did it ever strike Chubb why men gamble? That in most eases it was to insure them against the fear of want and to relieve them from the terrible anxiety of provision for the future ; that in other cases it was to gain the position and power that commands homage and servility, and that, anyhow, if carried on successfully it enables a man to appropriate the labour of others, and live a life of laziness and luxury, while those he robs 'v^rk 'n fivr-f-. ham ftyiRtranpf,.

THE NEW AUSTRALIA MOVEMENT. John Miller Again Replies. For three years the oo-operative ideas whiclTbave brought Ttbout^the New Aus tralia movement -have -received M ^ihe thought antToonsideration which a number of earnest men could Bpare from the active Labour work around tnem. a or two yeans every possible care has been taken to make sure that the method proposed is acceptable to honest men of widely differing economic ideas, but all holding fast to the anchor faith in human brotherhood. For over eighteen months it has been publicly known that the necessary preliminary steps were being taken, the despatch of an agent to South America being followed in dueTOurse-by the despatoh-of-prospeGtors and by the opening up of general organisa tion work.

Labour Aldermen. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 26 November 1892

Labour Aldermen. W. M'Cosker writes : Besides endeavouring to return Labour members to Parliament, our Workers' Political Organisations should take up the qiiftatiinn nf T.nv»al ftnvfirninpn^ with t.hfl object of electing Labour men to the various local bodies to force active measures of reform there. At present these local bodies confine themselves to building drains, repairing roads, cutting down labourer's wages, and squabbling with each other. Surely there is other work of at least equal importance to do. What about municipal lighting (whether by g;ts or electricity), water. .supply, sanitary work, and the bus and tram services. Such work, if managed by the Municipal Council for the benefit of the city would, instead of enriching the contractors, be a source of revenue, and ultimately the means of considerably reducing rates and taxes. Another question is the number of those local government bodies within a small radius, and the heavy management expenses thereby incurred. Of cou...

One and Twopence a Day. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 26 November 1892

One and Twopence a Day. The Brisbane Board of Waterworks advertised for tenders for digging and refilling trenches for water pipes in several suburban streets. Being distinctly a workinar man's inh thn numhar nf fanrinri) received was unusually large and so keen was the competition for work that the highest tender would not have meant more than 2s. 6d. a day for the men. As a matter of fact the lowest tenders were accepted. And this is the result. The. men-at-work-in-one 8teeetJTthoughtbey begin at 6 o'clock in the morning and work on till 0 at night with hardly any inter mission for meals, just manage to clear Is. 6d. a day, whilst those engaged in another contract with the utmost exertion manage to clear exactly Is. 2d. a day.. Little wonder that several of the poor fellows have been obliged to throw up their con tracts ; but it was hardly to have l-een anticipated that the Board of Waterworks would have been foolish enough to advertise that they were, going to do the worlr fr-ham...

Squatter Boards Taxing Carriers to the Eyes. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 3 December 1892

Squatter Boards Taxing Carriers to -' the Eyes. A Dalby (Q. ) carrier, summoned at the Miles police court, Nov. 22, for refusing to pay a tax of 10s. a wheel jib posed on the Dalby - St. George carriers, who pass through the Murilla Division, was by equatter dispensed law condemned to pay £10s. 11s., fine andtosts ; which with other exs ran the carrier into £25 10s. This, too, though no work whatever has been done, by tne Murilla Board on the Dolby-St. -George road. These carriers pass through two other divisions, the Boards of which are formed almost exclusively of pastora lists and Patriotic Leaguers. They will doubtless also impose tLe wheel tax, which will make it £0 per annum for each waggon. Thus about 70 carriers are threatened. After this tho squatter Boards will probably impose and Js.P. enforce a hammock and door tax, so that when carriers are on the roads they must sleep on the ground ; and at home must only keep a hole to crawl in and out of their houses.

He is undoubtedly a man of courage, conscience, and ability, yet in his speech at rSan Francisco about two months ago to an audience of about 7,000, he scarcely alluded to the land ques tion, although reputed to be a believer in the Single lax. Miss Leate, of Kansas, who has accompanied him for some months in his campaign travels, did say that ' we (the People's Party) are going to get back these lands,' referring to the immense grants to the railroads and sales of large areas to speculators, but did not state how, although she is an open and avowed advocate of the Single Tax, elee where than in public meetings.

Bitting the Wrong Man. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 3 December 1892

Bitting the Wrong Man. Some time back a couple of Union Prieoners in St. Helena (Q.) petitioned for release and were accordingly set at liberty. From an article in a recent issue of the Pastoralitts1 Review it would appear that one of them almost immediately after his liberation went down to Sydney aud there entered into negotiations of the most dis creditable nature with Whitely Kin?, secretary of the Pastoralista* Union of New South' Wales. Concluding that Thomas Lowry was the man referred to, the Wobkeb censured him in no light terms for the shameless perfidy involved in the transaction. Now it happens that Lowry, having been for some little time out of the way of Queensland news, was until the other day quite ignorant of the charge against him. Tbe moment he saw how matters stood, however, he wrote to A.L.F. Secretary Hinchcliffe in Brisbane a letter which bears the unmistakeable im press of truth and which no one can read without sincerely regretting the mistake 1-y Twhidi iliu...

The Rica Man's Bocto, Dear Wobkeb: That it is the doty of I the State to provide work fear tto unem ployed is an opinion that inuH hare been instilled into many men by the. «»rin*I«g depression. Xot oniv- should -the State give work in times of depression, but it should give it at all times to the unem -ployed^who ask— for it. This is a demand whichjjorrifies most Australian M L.A.'s, who look upon the 131iate as a glorified policeman, whosfi-business it is to see that the capitalist safely enjoys the wealthrthe^ worker produces. The reactionary idea that i; is uot the duty of the State to find work is a survival from the days when laisscr ~fair£ .raipned supreme, and chUdign;; were compelled to work . 72 hours a week.

THE EDITORIAL MILL. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 3 December 1892

THE EDITORIAL MILL It is nob always possible to be com plimentary to the churches without being unjust to Christianity. In connection with the Labour question, for example, you must admit either that the churches have fallen short in their duty or else that it was of remarkably small importance whether they discharged their duty or left it alone. Hence, when a clergyman like Oanon Stone Wigg undertakes ttje.defenoe of his order he succeeds only in belittling the mission of his church. Most of us try to believe that Christianity is a power in the world — that however broad its teach ings there is no human life too narrow to be brought within the range of its divine standard, that however abstract and lofty its ideals the humblest thought is capable of being patterned on them. In other words, we like to think that there is such a thing as practical Christianity. Now, Stone-Wigg would probably be the last man in the world to say that there was not. He is a zealous and hardworking parso...
