A Secret State Document. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 3 December 1892

A Secret, State Dncnmftiit. Prepared from private papers found in the train when M'llwraith left for India. Before Griffith finally scoots from the arenarof 'broken pledges ana1 flagrftnt^viola tiou of the principles that once guided his life, he seemingly has a final act of parlia ment to prepare for his master and casti gator, M'llwraith. The knight of thistles and grab wants a bill drafted by which the Parliament Houses and Treasury Buildings can in the February session — when the land grab contracts will be fixed up — be legally transformed into suitable premises forhisipelf and fe'low syndicators, in ac cordance with the latest requirements of their business. M'llwraith says justly : Representative government J3 dead, and there e no further necessity to keep up the fare-1 of pretending that the people have a voice in public affairs ; or, indeed, that thoi-e are any public affairs since every thing is in juy hands and for my interests.

SMOKE-HO [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 3 December 1892

SM0KW The Socialist League of New South Wales is becoming quite ' respectable.' The Australian Jacobin Club— the Sydney Domain. — Farmers in-the-Mudgee district are being yanked -into co-operation by butter factory owners milking them drier than the cockiesjeave the cows. Parkes in bis book says he believes himself to be compounded of the stuff of which martyra are made. That part of the book was evidently meant for Britishers.

BYSTANDER'S NOTEBOOK [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 3 December 1892

Ex parson Brentnall'a corpse was not dug up from beneath a heap of fallen -bhkm'KAu, land values and thrown by its alive, OH ! co-directors, of the Brisbane Telvgravh unceremoniously to the wolves. Those who last week bought late editions with the notion that they would find there something in the shape of an obituary notice, or at least an under taker's 'ad.' with touching references to 'tiie latu lamented manager' were dis appointed — as indeed persons whose choice of literature is directed by prurient curiosity ought to be. Happily our brother lives— and writes. As recently as Satur day- he iiheek^i fat and -flabby fistin the face of his ancient foo — humanity. There is something ra essentially fair minded, so urbane and courteous, about one of Brentnall's leading articles that tho merest novice can recognise it. You see the barbarian in print.

New Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 10 December 1892

New Australia. P. J. MAONAMAKA, SOUTHPORT, (Q.) WRITES: The defect in our social system does not arise through the inadequacy of the aggre gate wealth production, which is vastly in excess of actual requirements. For, owing to mechanical inventions and the increase of scientific knowledge, the production of weaitti nas, during the past Halt century made marvellous strides, while each pass ing year witnesses the introduction of still more perfect processes of manufacture, pre servation and transportation. The produc tion and exchange of commodities has reached a very high point of ecpnomiensie' velopment. ]3ut at the same time it is obvious that the ethics of distribution have been shamefully neglected as a branch of social science and industrial education, while the glorious game of grab has been brought to the pinnacle of perfection. We cannot very well get rid of poverty while we tolerate the economic system which creates and perpetuates it. As long as the acquisition of wealth is...

THE A.W.U. Rules. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 10 December 1892

? The A.W^U. Rules. ? Esmond P. Roherts, delegate A.W.U., at prosent-in ^Adelaides-writes in reply to ' Maneroo' : I repeat what I said before that there is absolutely no- safeguard provided in the proposed constitution of the A.W.U. against plural voting. By rule 30 ' each member must write his name and, where noasihte. th-i numhnr nf his rar. rent or previous year's ticket on the ballot paper filled in by him.' Now I maintain that Jihe words ' where -pesstbleMeave-ir open to anybody whether a member of the union or not to record a vote. Therefore I as a member of the union can record my vote, giving the number of my ticket, and then fill up another ballot-paper, signing a fictitious name, and leave the space for the number of ticket blank, and who will be the wiser? He says that the scrutineers prove the 'bona fides of every member by the alphabetical roll-book.' Which I very much question, as in a great many in stances, more especially in the case of com mon names such as Smith, ...

A Xiondon Paner Sneaks. Dear Worker: Nothing succeeds like success. The federated steamship owners were successful in the maritime strike, and the Brisbane dailies had leaden showing what a benefit to mankind generally that victory was. The Queensland Government UB1WHIUU VUf UUSU UU1UUB IU VUK great struggle, and many people really believe that Queensland was saved from brigand age ; their eyes shut of course to the fact that the real origands were in George street. The other day the Brisbane Courier had a loner leader on the possi bilities of the Patriotic League as an election ma shine, and unwillingly paid a tribute to the Workers' Political Organisa tions. There Is no doubt the A.L.F. has organised the workers and fs able to command com paratively large sums of money. This is of course mere 'dust.' It is the fact that the A.L.F. has assisted the workers to combine that called forth that heartrending appeal to support the party of ' Law and Order.' The workers of the old country ...

THE GOVERNMENT PARTY READY FOR THE ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 10 December 1892

~ ? THE GOVERNMENT PARTY READY FOR THE ELECTIONS:^ A doubt has arisen in many electorates as to whether half-castes can exercise tUt parlia mentary franchise. The Colonial Secretary, in order to decide the point, submitted a case to the law officers of the GoESHUiiuit, who have advised Mr. Toirer that an aloripinal is entitled to have his name placed on the roll if he possesses a freehold qualification, while a half caste stands on the same footing as amah born of white parents. tgJjOZER: Noiv then, make room for the propertied class. These gentlemen have each a stake in the country. That ^~ fellow with his half-starved wife and brats hasn't even got any worL What interest can he feel in the welfare of Syndicates ?

On Personalities. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 10 December 1892

? On-Peraonalftles— — W. Edward Graham writes at length protesting against personalities in journal ism, and especially against references of a more or less 'personal' character in the columns of the Wobkee to Mr. Morehead and Mr. Bell, private secretary to Sir S. W. Griffith and an aspirant to parliament. With regard to the Morehead reference the Worker maintains that that gentleman's conduct as a supporter of the present ad ministration justifies the cartoon in the last issre which (to use Mr. Graham's words) ?' represented him gloating over the prospect of unhappy men and women being taken in hand by 'our grim friend - starvation.' Surely Mr. Graham, as a Single Taxer, must admit that the essential difference between the monopolist of the Morehead stamp and the economic re former lies above everything in the fact that the one. prefers to call in the aid of Starvation to keep wages down whilst the other insists upon the establishment of a minimum upon which any man with reasonable...
