SHEARING AT NAMBROK. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 14 September 1910
SHEARING AT NAMBR0K. j I Dear. Worker, —Here is the truth about the charges laid against Union shearers not cutting out a flock on Saturday af ternoon at Nambrok, V., last year, ' when there was only\ an hour's work.' It rained through; thej week,, and it was clearly understood from the man over the board that there would' not be any shear ' ing until Monday,- so -four of . the shearers Went home. The' sheen werfi mit in -on the Friday night, and about 12 o'clock on Saturday, ' Mr. Sinback, who was in charge of the Shearing board, - asked- if we would keepr'ota -for;, ten' .jmlnutes -to. out out the : floeto. ,? To. this we* agi-ced, ' but when ' the -. last sheep was caught- it was 25 past 12. | Then, :on Sunday; Mr. ' Widdis' came to J the hut,- carrying a lamb, and said that- ? | if the same rules were in next year- he (Would nave rules of his own, that if the 48-h;ffiirs'- -woi,ki:\vei;e.

THE CONTROL OF COUNTRY HOSPITALS. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 14 September 1910
THE CONTROL OF COUNTRY HOSPITALS. Dear Worker, — Having followed with some interest the articles and letters recently appearing in your paper on the above subject, I am anxious,' if possible, to prevent members of the A.W.U. 'frc-m rashly following; * advice^, from persons meaning well, but who have not given the matter proper consideration. Mr. James Muldowney, of BurroAva, recommends a scheme proposed by Mr, B. Jordan, viz.. a levy of 2s. per member yearly; make arrangements with- various hospital com mittees, whereby a, sick member, on ar rival at a hospital, .presenting his Union ticket, would readily gain admission. This scheme would never work; in fact, I do not think it will be given a trial. Does Mr! Muidowney think the sum of 2s. per annum Avould cover the expenses of main taining, providing ' medical skill and medicines, and skilled nursing for every sick, shearer and laborer? I feel certain it would ' not. ' Again, why should a man possessing a Union ticket be entitled ad...

BROKEN HILL WATER SUPPLY. RECORD OF CRIMINAL NEGLECT. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 14 September 1910
BROKEN HILL WATER SUPPLY. RECORD OF CRIMINAL NEGLECT. Dear Worker, — I notice that Mr. Murphy, j the Broken Hill agent for the A'.W.U., in his report published in your issue of Sep tember 1, touched on the question of Broken Hill's alleged water supply, and I am prompted to add my quota of mur murings at the .depths of perfidy appar ently reached by the Wade Government regarding the above question. The Minister for Works, Mr. Lee, paid Broken Hill a visit a little over two years ago, and was then shown the source from whence Broken Hill at 'present obtains its water supply. ?_ He unhesitatingly ex pressed the opinion later that it . was a scandal that such a city as Broken Hill should be entirely dependent on such 3, clay pan for its water. In 1903. the supply entirely gave out,' and for some weeks there was absolutely no water available either for mining purposes or domestic use other than that which was brought from South 1 Australia by train. W:hen you know that the mines alone c...

WHAT IS SLAVERY? [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 14 September 1910
WHAT IS SLAVERY ? 'Tis to work, and have such play As just keeps life from day to day In your limbs, as in a cell For the tyrant's use to dwell: So that ye for them are made, Loom, and plow, and sword, and spade: 'With or without your own will, bent - To their defence and nourishment. 1 'Tis to see your children weak With their mothers pine and peak, When the winter winds are bleak— They are dying while I speak. 'Tis to hunger for such diet, As the rich man in his riot Casts to the fat dogs that lie Surfeiting beneath his eye. 'Tis to see the ghost of gold Take from toil a thousand-fold More than e'er its substance could In the tyrannies of old. 'Tis to be a slave in soul, And to hold no strong control Over your own will, but be All that others make of ye. — Percy Bysshe Shelley.

SHED HOSPITALITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 14 September 1910
SHED HOSPITALITY. Dear Worker, — Would you permit m'e space to contradict the unjust report that is going about this part of the country, that shearers and cooks at Wunnamurra, Jerilderie, refuse travellers going through anything to eat. In justice to the shearers and cook at Wunnamurra, I beg leave to say that since the above shed has started shearing there have, been 15 to 20 men 1 ere every night, and all have been made* welcome. Further, any travellers who call Ln future will still be welcome and: will get full and plenty. It is a fact, though, that a couple of men were asked to leave here after living on the shearers for nine days, and vex*y likely they are the ones who spread* the report about. — S. Col quhoun, Rep. . ? ? ??'?????. - . ?. ! , . ~~ '? .. \ Paddington, Cobar, will start shearing about the : end of September, with 10 sheax'ers (machines).

LEVY FOR LABOR DAILY IMPORTANT NOTICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 14 September 1910
LEVY FOR LABOR DAILY IMPORTANT NOTICE. While, so far as the season has gone, nearly the whole of our members have been loyally paying, up their levies for the 'Labor Daily' in their first sheds, there yet have' been instances where some have, refused to do so. The levy was imposed by a huge major ity vote of the members themselves, and it is to be regretted that there is even one member in our midst nreoared to 'violate Union principles by trying to evade pay ment. For the information of such, therefore, we would quote section 68 of the Com-' monwealth Conciliation and Arbitra-' tion . Act of 1904. This is the section:' 'All fines, levies, or dues payable to an organization- by any mem ber thereof under its rules may, in so fai* as they are owing for any period of mem bership subsequent to the registration or proclamation of the organization, be sued for and .recovered in the name of the or ganization in any Court of summary jur isdiction constituted by a Police, Stipen diary, or Sp...

THE TRICKS OF CONTRACTORS Boxgrove, Wentworth, cut out Sept. 3, after 5 Aveeks' humbugging. This Avas one of Young and Go's, sheds', of 8 sheai*ers.' We were to go on to Henley, to make up !a board of 18 'slieai'ers,' .but we were told that they would not start until we arrived. However, at the out out here the .shearers wei'e called into the office one by one to sign- for Henley shed, and each one was asked to give a £3 guaran tee. Some, 'npt seeing tlie drift of the proceeding, acceded to their wishes, but some of us. objected, and we found out afterwai'ds that Henley had been shearing since the 18th with the rest: of the team, hence the anxiety to get us to sigh, and the motive -for such a big deposit. We are continually meeting with such like deceptipns from contractors, and workers sliould be made aware of ' their ' little tricks.— J. B. Cuxhmings. -
