An Act of Tyranny. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 10 December 1892

_. An Act of Tyranny. The miserable position of the Queens land workers, their weakness through want of combination, their helplessness and sub misBiveness were vividly illustrated the other day on Charters Towers. The Towers is supposed ,to be an abode of Democracy, ana yet the people, thermass; of the miners ih9re have been deprived of «'d upuu w use uieir own ocnooi or Arcs. The hall had been hired, the rent had been paid, and yet the committee refused 4o allow a Labour entertainment to be held there. Travelling theatrical companies may have the use of this place, any public or semi-public body may use it at reduced rates, but the workers not at any price. The proposed entertainment was in aid of the Vosper Prisoner Fund'. — .fortunately' for the credit of the Labour cause no tickets-had been sold, ^therefore persons who intended going to~the entertainment had no personal cause _of . complaint. Had it been otherwise there is no doubt the capitalistic ruse would have succeeded ara...

THE CAUSE IN QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 10 December 1892

Hie Caaaetn Queensland. Gilbert Casey writes : In Queensland just now it is instructive to watch the insolence and arrogance of the wealthy classes and their entire disregard of the interests and well-being of the people. On the other hand it is pitiable to watch the fear and abjectness of the people. The dread of enforced, idleness comoels them to hide their true feeliner. they are outwardly the willing slaves of Mammon, but under the surface there is a volcano of discontent that waits quietly i«id ^jatieBtly for the general election. All the oppression tyranny, and injustice the people now suffer will then find vent. There will be no theatrical display, no gnashing of teeth, no clashing of arms, no physical struggle. ~No7lt will be none ol tEeHr. lliu uwawlaiiave learned to wait, they have been patient under Burt'arinpr, they have practised endurance and it has taught them that the quietness and peacefulness of the ballot box is the surest, safest, and easiest way of remedying the...

THE EDITORIAL MILL. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 10 December 1892

THE EDITORIAL MILL The Australian Workers Union Tias made a good start in Sydney ; and W. G. Spence hit the right nail on the head when he said at a great public meeting held there a few days ago that the land question was at the root of economic reform. As long as the Labour Movement was merely something to think about in our heart of hearts, something to talk to pur mates about, as long ae it remained a mere ex pression of high thought and fervent feel ing it did not matter much how far we ~~6*ifferetHn-our detailed methods of reform. The groat thing, uuitt liaviug oonviaeetT ourselves that the conditions around us mnM tfit- rmt-Anmfl nf a miyhty wrong, was to do our best to makethe tact apparent to others.

Travelling on the crust of hell, With the hot winds whistling past. How long, oh Lord Sir Griffilwraith,     Is this thing going to last?   Is this the milk-and-honey land 'Bout which we used to sing At home in merry England   And make the taverns ring 'Way down in the West Riding, Where most of us were gulled With the joys of sunny Queensland — "The land the workers ruled." 'Tis not "fair dinkum" now, I think, When a man is stiff and broke To bail him up and perpetrate On him a stupid joke.
