"Another King Deposed." (Newspaper Cable—Any Day.) [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 17 May 1919

' Another King Deposed.' (Newspaper Cable— Any Say.) Oh! the kings are going-, going Two by two and one by one. And the plain folks are enjoying \. The triumphs they have won. The hoinage paid to man-made kings. Who lived for war and lust, Has made us mean and abject things' And crushed us in the dust. For them we starved, and bled, and perished, Loyal' to the Altar, Flag and Throne, And still sang our mad Hosannas For the land we called 'our own.' To them we bowed, and cringed, and grov elled, From our hovels arid our slums, While they gorged upon our substance And tossed us back the crumbs. 'But the day of kings is passing, Useless Kaisers, Dukes and Czars, And the common people waking 'Hitch their waggons to the stars.' 'Haste along, my backward brothers, Still enslaved by old ideas, Lend a hand to end forever Their long reign of blood and tears.' For kings have wrought great mischief Since man's history begins, Ar.d long we groaned, yet bore them As penance for our sins. Till at...

British Labor Manifesto. LONDON, May 8. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 17 May 1919

British Labor Manifesto. LONDON, May «. 1 The British Labor Executive, in a mani festo, says: 'Some of the essentials bf the Treaty are opposed to the declarations of President Wilson, the Inter-Allied Con ference, and the Berne Conference. . The Treaty is defective from the standpoint of world peace, and bears evidence of a com promise influenced by Capitalisnv and' Im perialism. ?' .. 'The Labor Party declines responsibility for violations of the principle,- inasmuch as organised. Labor was ? not ? represented at the Conference, and the general spirit of the document is contrary, to the working class conception of a 'Peace nt, Right and Justice.' Labor, therefore, looks to the pebple and the Eorces bid organised 'demo cracy to safeguard and develop the idea of a. peaceable community pf all, nations.

Making History. A NOTABLE PRECEDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 17 May 1919

Making History. A NOTABLE PRECEDENT. Parliamentary procedure, and ordinary laws are very much governed by prece dents. One noted personage remarked, that 'the British Constitution has 'broad- ened dpwn from precedent to precedent.' . Now the Watt 'Win-the-War' Go vernment has established one precedent that will live for ever as a new departure in bourgeois methods of taxation. It may be safely asserted that .the es sence of bourgeois (middle-class) rule is the raising of money by INDIRECT taxa tion, and by the secret method known as profiteering. 'Tis a. sneaking, underhand, way of raising money— this sly filching from the public purse. But so accus tomed have we moderns become to these sly pilferings, price marking, and indirect taxation that we suffer it continuously without even protesting. The direct method— commandeering of wealth straight out— has quite f alien. ito disrepute. But the war partially revived the old style. Luckily, we in Australia have re cently been governed by...

Who Pays the Land Tax? [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 17 May 1919

Who Pays the Land Tax? Senator Grant writes: In view of the statements frequently made that, so far as the workers are cpn .cerned, it does, not really matter how local. State, or National taxation is im posed, the worker must pay it every time, two incidents occurred in Sydney last week which it would be well for those holding this opinion to carefully consider. The Sydney Municipal Council was con sidering the question of the amount of the annual rate on land values required to pro duce the necessary revenue. The Finance Committee had recommended a rate of 4jd. per pound. This rate is a direct tax on the land values' of Sydney without gradations, exemptions, rebates, or *.ny of the numerous devices so eloquently ad vocated ostensibly in the interests of the poor worker. It was, in effect, a direct tax on the owners of Sydney. With this report was also submitted one from the Electric Lighting Committee, suggesting that from the profits standing to the credit of that committee, amou...

Ore Buying. v. HIGH FINANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 17 May 1919

Ore Buying. - v. HIGH FINANCE. Our Australian ore buyer is now having the time of his life. His 'High Finance' accomplices in New Tork ana London are systematically bearing down the raining industry as near to perdition as possible, and in the process are reaping huge pro fits. The local dealer, on his part, is en ? abled to quote prices that would make a Russian Jew blush with shame,- and in extenuation to point to the actions of hia greater compeers in guilt who reside in London and New Tork. Australian mining industries ai£ being systematically, shamefully, and need lessly dragged in the mud by a group of allied money criminate, politely, termed 'Exchange gentlemen',' or '?High Finan ciers.' And in this work they are aided and abetted by the profiteers who habitually batten on the producer of metals in this lcne outpost of civilisation, our continent. * ' Judging by their actions the Tory gang which Lloyd George has engineered into power is dominated by the speculators and Exchan...

MILITANTS AND MODERATES. (To the Editor, "Labor News.") [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 17 May 1919

MILITANTS AND MODERATES. (To the Editor, 'Labor News.') Sir, — Your correspondent, one Moles worthT seems to have very little know ledge of „ the principles of the Labor Movement. According to his ideas, all that is neces sary for the emancipation of those on the breadline is to have a house full of politicians who can camouflage to sucn an extent that people refer to them as Labor leaders. The craft union advocate of twenty years ago was charged with being an extremist, and I've no doubt had Mr. Molesworth been known then he would have referred to craft unionism as rank communism. He says he is proud of being a mod erate. I heard several of the .1917 scabs say they were good moderate Labor men, and proud to serve their country. Such similar statements as these would in duce one to believe that Mr. Molesworth and the scabs are from the same school. These people who call themselves moderates have been the curse of all movements. They always halt half way. * It you were swimming .a ri...

DISSENSIONS IN THE RANKS. To the Editor. "Labor News." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 17 May 1919

DISSENSIONS IN THE RANKS. To the Editor, 'Labor N»w#.' Sir,— What use is all this foolish talk of industrial- versus political ac tion? One without the other is use less for peaceful development along constitutional lines. The past shows bow ineffectual industrial action is tin-: less supported by political power. Ana very recent events show pow political ac4, tion failed when it tried to act without the co-operation but in defiance of in dustrial power. . Some politicians have failed us in the past, but it is unjust and illogical to de duce from this that all- politicians must fall us in the future. Are not we of the rank and file somewhat to blame for the defaulting of the politician in - the past? It is generally recognised a bad principle to put too much temptation . in anybody's path. We gave him a secret caucus wbere he could scheme and intrigue behind' our backs with impunity. We cheered him, carried him shoulder high, slobbered over him, yes, almost deified 'him!

"LABOR'S NEW OBJECTIVE." To the Editor, "Labor News." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 17 May 1919

''LABOR'S NEW OBJECTIVE.' To the Editor, 'Labor News.' Sir, — 'A prospect of thirty Government-i. stroke hours a week, with equal pay for' the worker and the idler . . . has its allure ments,' etc. — The 'Daily Telegraph' in a leader entitled 'Labor's New Objective.' ' It can, at least, be said that the Party supported by the 'Telegraph' does not stand for equal pay for the worker and the- idler. It stands for' an idle class, which is over-fed, over-clad, and with mur.e muuey iu-u- u c&b hdu mea.ns ui dis posing of. Hence arises the need for treating pet dogs to all kinds -ot luxuries and absurdities, and for paying fabulous prices for useless ornaments and unneces sary dress. At the 'other end of the ladder it stands for a working-class without the neces saries of life, housed in slums and disease breeding hovels, clad in rags and with misery and hunger ever looking into the faces of the little ones. This lack of proper nourishment spells death to thousands of children ever...

THE NATIONAL GOVERNMENT'S RAILWAY CONSTRUCTION POLICY. To the Editor, "Labor News." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 17 May 1919

THE NATIONAL GOVERNMENT'S RAILWAY CONSTRUCTION POLICY. To the Editor, 'Labor News.' Sir,—We were told by the Govern ment that the winning of the war had to take precedence over everything, that all available funds were being con centrated in that direction, and that the tightness of the money market -feven for war purposes, rendered a progressive railway construction policy impossible. New lines in course, of construction, and upon which hundreds of thousands of pounds had been expended, were shut down at a moment's notice, hundreds of workers thrown on an already glutted labor market, and although residents of the. districts which such lines would serve came to the assistance of the Go vernment and offered to find part, if not the whole, of the funds necessary to complete them, that offer was turned down on the ground that expenditure in this connection must be reduced with a view to diverting money to the war loans. A very patriotic and praiseworthy object indeed, ~but, as subsequ...

WHEAT POOL. HOODWINKING THE FARMERS. To the Editor, 'Laboi1 News.' The Minister for Agriculture, Mr. ' Gra ham, having enticed Mr. Campbell, Secre tary of the Farmers and Settlers' Asso ciation, into his parlor, is apparently sat isfied to use him to shield his own silence, after having all the facts placed before him that everything is satisfactory, and would stand the fullest investigation, as reported in the 'Telegraph' of April 3,. 1919. Evidently, by his reassurance in the 'Sun' of May 6, 1919, he is again being used to defend the Government's attitude in reference' to the recent sale of wheat to the Japanese Government. Per haps Mr. Campbell is ignorant of the con ditions governing the delivery of wheat -to Japan and the quantity of '1?/'18 season's wheat delivered against this sale. Evi dently he is not aware that a considerable quantity of 'VI /'IS wheat has been de livered, including a large quantity' of f.a.q.

(To the Editor, 'Labor News.') ?» Sir, — Now that the chipping problem Is bringing the question of State-owned industries wider review, would you al low me to state what, in my opinion, will eventually prove the solution of the eco nomic problem? A study of the facts and figures in connection with the relative progress of Capital and Labor during the period of adult suffrage in Australia, has con vinced the great majority of the wage ..earners that legislative ? tinkering, while the private ownership of the means of production and ' 'exchange continues, is not only a waste, of time, but, also, the cause of the greater aggravation of the economic evils. It is a deplorable fact that large num bers of good Laborites and Unionists judging the system, of State-controlled industry by its present capitalistic ad ministration, are turning away in dis gust and' seeking a remedy for their grievances along other and more W tuous lines....
