In Townsville. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 17 December 1892

In Townsville. Things are very dull in Townsville and hundreds of men walking about in search of work. It's pitiful to see thenyeager and hungry, making for theTtfeatWorkB, and being told that there's nothing for them there but that they'd better go down the creek and camp till somebody turns up his toes ana rus oilier, as a matter oi race men are constantly being poisoned through the painting of skins with arsenic and the work generally is unhealthy in the extreme. Such as it iB, however, there is nothing — constant about it. Unionists cannon gee work Jin -the wharves. Blacklegs are always preferred. Not long ago I heard a boss on one of the wharves tell a fellow that he could p*-ti faster man than he ontjof the graveyard. The poor chap couldn't work for want of nourishment. He told me that he hai eaten nothing for thirty-six hours. Townsville carries off the palm, I think, for want, misery, and prostitution.

Freedom of Contract. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 17 December 1892

-__r_^_^~ Freedom of Coutrfeot. If you wano to see freedom of contract at its worst go straight toTalavera Woolshed, near Surat, (Q. ) where the men shear under a station agreement that places them com pletely at the mercy of their employers. They are expected to be on the board at five o'clock in the morning, and under no pretence are they allowed to leave it during the day without asking permission. They average between thirteen and fourteen ? hours work and nobody is allowed to shear more than 100 sheep in that time. The usual custom in sheds is to ballot for the cook. In this ehed the manager engages thacook over the heads of the men, refusing even to allow them to deal direct with the vegetable gardener or the hawkers and in sisting that all goods shall come through the station store. The way the men are looted is simply wonderful. For instance — they pay £2 5o- a bag for flew that they can buy elsewhere for £1 19s., and on some lines ohe difference in price is considerably mor...

A gentleman who feels that he N is no longer capable of filling his old role ' in the polluted sea of Queensland politics through failing health, deems himself quite competent to take the highest position in the state— a position requiring a jrery sound mind in a very Bound body. When the body suffers the mind with which it is ever in close sympathy, suffers also.

Touching the Labour Bureau. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 17 December 1892

Touching the Labour Bureau. The Brisbane Observer recently published an -article in praise ^rf the Government Labour Bureau. Amongst other things it was stated that the families on the books of the establishment had been reduced from 1300 to somewhere about half that number. Apart altogether from the fact chat a large percentage of really hard up cases has never come within range of the bureau's operations, a statement like thfl — following tempts one to question most seriously the kind of help aeearded_fa3_-£hfl— 000 odd families whose names have disap peared from its books, if not indeed to con elude ^that the bureau is in reality often neither more nor less than an ingenious con trivance for the forcing down of wages : A steady, honest carpenter went to the bureau for a pass to Warwick, but was ad vised^to wait as they were expecting a lady to arrive in a few minutes who wanted a car penter.

A Justice and His Gins. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 17 December 1892

A Justice and Bis Gins. Here is an illustration of' the way in which blacks are treated on some stations : One P. A. Spriggs was brought up at the Camooweal (Q.) Police Court on the 2nd iVovember for inducing a black gin to leavsiier hired service with the Rocklands Pastoral Company. A. H. Glisspn, Jus tice oi trie reace, who laid tne information, said that the gin had been in the employ of the station for the last six years. By the Bench : Had no written or verbal agree- ' menc, never paid »uy wages to the gin; had no agreement with any blacks working on . the station ; did not pay them any wages ; it was not the custom to pay blacks wages or to give them any money as they did not know the valun of money. When the gin was run in with another gin from the tribe they were told to go to work. They did so and had worked for the last bix years. By Prisoner Spriggs.: The gins once ran away.

THE EDITORIAL MILL. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 17 December 1892

THE EDITORIAL MILL The Brisbane Telegraph charges the Labour party with driving away capital. That sounds bad. We shall probably be charged before long with instigating another drought, or conspiring to frighten the gold away from Mount Morgan or the silver away from Broken HUL It does not seem to strike the truthful Brentuall that it capital nas indeed oeen cnivied on com mercial scarecrows of the M'llwraith and Palmer type are chiefly accountable for the fact. British capitalists may be 'had' occasionally, but every time they find themselves unable to Ret back the dollars they entrusted to the smart Colonial financier, they learn a lesson in caution ; and as long as cases like the Mortgage and Investment Company^, or bankruptcies like that of Matthew Henry Davies are the rule amongst Colonial 'statesmen,' there is likely to lie a dearth of the foreign money that according to the Telegraph '.makes things merry.' * # * It may indeed be ' a proof of either ignoranoe or effrontery ' t...

That is if the official organ of the sect is speaking by the book when it says re the coming elections : In due season the AnatroUan will not be slow - to declare in favour of that course of action which the political circumstances of the hour no less than the traditional polity of the church in relation to affairs of the State demands at ? the hands of all Catholic electors. When such policy is incubated and the document sent forth it should be interesting reading. It will, if made public in the columns or the paper show whether the church is capable of cutting itself adrift from the worshippers of ...

Nelson, a few days before his new appointment, showed his hopeless incom petence by talking thus to his constituents at Callandoon : The prospects of the colony were not so gloomy as some tbougbt. Exports exceeded im port* by two and a half millions, which might be regarded as a sign that the colony would Boon forge' ahead, that the wave of depression had nearly spent itself, and that the future looked brighter than the paBt ? ...He would oppose any one-man-one-vote legislation, as he believed that character, property, and even wealth, should be represented. Now, what in the name of common sense does the blundering tmiddlptiprtd mean? Does he wish us, at this time of day, to believe that because we are paying away t«-n n.H n half milluniR mnra fchini w« receive every year that we are prospering ?
