LABOUR IN POLITICS. 'Libkbty, I am told, is a divine thing,' says Oarlyle; 'but liberty to die of starvation is not so divine.' Ipswich is talking labour-ih-politics quietly but seriously. Decay has wormed itself through and through 'the Bunch' this time. The Chaffev irrigation syndicate is working the S. A- Parliament for power to bleed the poor devils who are in their grip atRenmark. ......-.__ ? Gympik District Council, A.L.F., held a social on Monday last to aid the wives and families of the Broken Hill Union Prisoners.

ORIGINAL VERSE Success to the Union. Here's a health to all unionists gathered around. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; With victory soon may our battle be crowned. We are fighting for Manhood and Justice and Right So, courage, my boys, let us sing as we fight. &nbsp; CHORUS. Then success to the union, may it prosper and flourish ; From our Cause, sons of Freedom, ne'er sever ; And perdition to scabs ! Men determined to perish May sweat for their masters for ever and ever. The tyrants have snavelled the corn and the oil And giv'n us the husks in return for our toil. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; But Ca ira ! the dawn of the day is at hand ; We'll drive the gorged vultures from out of the land. &nbsp; Then success, &c. They've stol'n the soil, the birthright of our race &nbsp; And jeeringly fl...
More About Labour In the States. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 24 December 1892
More About Labour In the States. Alcbeu Cbidge writes: ^ ? It has long been clear that the periodical change of parties in America is merely a see-saw game. The aotual difference between them is next to nothing. Both are plutocratic in all essential particulars. Both have succeeded in concentrating the forces of the so-called 'struggle' on such insignificant issues as the tariff, to the pvolllainn nf anv iaatta fKofr ia e\t «u»«l interest, and even on that question their differences are- merely betwaan a higher and a lower rate ot duty. People are How to realise this. Still a few more see it than in 1888 or 1890, and in 1896 so many will see it as to occasion, perhaps, one or both of the old parties dropping out, though I shoald not be surprised if they held on to the twentieth century, as they have ' struggled' for the last twenty-five years without any 'issue' worth talking about. For the first time since the war a third party has acquired a footing, the People's Party, as you wil...

And Were Not Ashamed. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 24 December 1892
And Were Not Anhamed. Dear Woekke,— We have about eight miles from Bundaberg, on the coast, a place called the Sandhills. After a hard week's work we very often spend the Sunday there with our wives and families. Indeed it is a very popular waterside place. The other dav as I was strollincr aloner the beach with my wife and children we saw Just in front of us a dozen kanakas undress ing for a swim, and as they were quite naked, my wife and children went back and I strolled along for some dfotance and afterwards returned to see what was on. The twelve kanakas were then in the water. The next thing I saw was a buggy coming along the sands with four gentlemen in it. When they came up to the kanakas they stopped, and I stopped to Eee what they were going to do, as three out of . the four of them being justices of the peace I thought they were going to bring law and order to bear upon the indecent islanders. Imagine my sur prise then when three of the gentlemen got out of the buggy and u...
How to Expose the Immigration Fraud. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 24 December 1892
How to Expose fee Immigration Fraua. ? ? To counteract the baneful influence of the immigration tout in luring unsuspect ing farmers to Queensland to take up land grabbed by M'llwraith and his syndicates, George P. Barber, Woolloongabba, pro poses : That the Queensland Labour Party cir culate at the shows and fairs attended by Black and Randall pamphlets giving the VI Uv IH/UU1B1UU Ul initllUHS »UU Wtt)fC ffUULCla in the colony. This could be successfully carried out first by supplying the pam phlets to friends and members of unions in the towns in England that the Govern ment agents visit, trusting them to see that they are freely distributed amongst the farming and wage-earning classes. And secondly, that the assistance of the coun try editors be aolieitecTby the Labour Party (here, some member or members con tributing weekly, fortnightly, or monthly letters giving an exhaustive account of the condition of labour here. This, I think could be done without much diffi culty.

Spenoe and the Land Question. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 24 December 1892
Spenoe and the fraud Question. — Dear Workeb: I am glad that Mr. SpencB has taken up the land question and advises unionists generally to join forces in making it the first plank for the next election. It is the one 'question upon which all workers can agree. Socialists, Single Taxers, Free-traders, Protectionists, *.pA ffp^firftrinniHto, by one united effort can settle; it ror au nine, w use is necessary is to adopt the .broad ~ principle of the land for the people, and the following is in my opinion about the way in which it should be done: __ — irJTbat^no more land be alienated either by auction oils, conditional purchase, or ia any other way. 2. That all land now held by the state be classified, say, into mining, agricultural, and grazing areas— grazing land to be leased an nually, agricultural in blocks ot, lay, 1000 acne for the term of say five years at a cental equal to the interest upon its unimproved value; mining lands not to be leased at ill unless the conditions are sue...

A Case of Thrift. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 24 December 1892
A Case of Thrift. An elderly man strolled into the Worker office not many days ago and, taking a chair beside the editor,- drew from his pocket a couple of greasy documenbs. They bore the official impress of the Metro politan Freehold Land and Building Com pany, and the signatures of four directors ; and they represented more than a quarter nf a p.finfciirv'R 'thrift.' TTft p.n,mn out to Australia twenty-seven years ago.

The Able Man. Alter all it cannot be denied that he is the most able roan _ge__hftve—ggfcort of Griffith sycophants. An able man ! ay, that is he, And so, too, is the devil ; In hellthey toast ability At every impish revel. ' To each we give the praise that'6 his By hellish rule and custom ; But then, you see, the mischief ia That we can never trust 'em. Able ! Well, yes, he has the knack ; No doubt a man is duller Who cannot show that white is black, ? And black is not a colour. There's few could raise so loud a cry Of ' Queensland for the White Man !'

He changes like a weather-cock ; The two-faced Janus never Of consistency made such a mock ;— No harlequin so clever. He change...
Wanted, A Song. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 24 December 1892
Wanted, A Song. Strike us a chord of gold, poet ; strike us a golden chord ; Sing us a song of the people and a song of the risen Lord ; Sing us a song of the toilers, and a song of the Bons of man, Of their burdens and lamentations, sing forth as a ntoohet can. The heart of the age is cold, poet ; the soul of the age is dead — Slain on the altar of Mammon— the spirit of brotherhood fled ; The bounties of nature_are ample, the joys of the people few, And tike Church, that should battle for Justice/ turns coldly from the view. Sing us the golden song, poet ; disturbThe heavy sleep Of homeless men, and helpless men, and men with no charge to keep, ' Send, in the dire confusion, thy cadences eager and-faigh ; Sing and sing, brave poet, though singing for others you die. ?
