Life and Labor. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 24 May 1919

Life and Labor. Of all wastes, the greatest waste that you can commit is the waste of labor. 'What!' You perhaps think, 'to waste the labor of men is not to kill them.' Is it not? I should like- to know how you could kill them more utterly — kill them -with second deaths, seventh deaths, hun dredfold deaths?^ A is the slightest way of killing to stop a man's breath. Nay, tlie hunger and the cold and the whistling bullets — our love messengers between 'na- tion and , nation — have brought pleasant messages to many a man before now; orders of sweet release, and leave at last to go where he will be most welcome and most happy. At the worst you do but shorten his life. You do not corrupt his life. But If you put him ,to base labor, if you bind his thoughts, if you blind his eyes, if you blunt his hopes, if you steal his joys, if you stunt his body and'' blast his soul, and at last leave him not so much as strength to reap the poor fruit of his tfeif adatloi; *bu£ s^i^rP^U ?S&^M3...

On the Verandah WHEELS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 24 May 1919

[?] WHEELS. I think there is nothing more fascinat ing in the world than wheels — all manner of wheels, grey and brown and rusty and shining,' small and large and slender, that roll on iip and down the streets. From ray office wiudow I sometimes watch them, drawn by their grind and wind away from work an instant; and the old trolleys, the cars and. carts rumble strange rhythms to me, half -intoxicating. Imagine being intoxicated by the noise of a city street! ' '? But the wheels call up so much to my mind. From the wheels of the drays to the wheel of the great green world itself is but a span, while one dip into the well of Memory brings visions of all the by gone wheels — indeed, all the wheels of the world. » Roman chariots, with their loud whip ping drivers; the rumbling tumbrils of red Paris; the artillery carriages of Flan dors; the capitalist's car; the. baby's go cart in the park — all these rush at a flash oC memory down the city street and color the working wheels that pass...

'the writings of those economists who have endeavored to deal ?with, their subject from the point of view of the proletariat.

Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 24 May 1919

Notes. Since Cobi won the Higlweight Handi cap at Randwick on Saturday last a num ber of sporting writers have become em phatic as to the fact that he either won or at least was second in the final race at Canterbury the previous Saturday, when, to the amazement of the public, he ? was not officially placed. It was un- , doubtedly a glaring mistake, just as glar- . ing as that made by the same judge at Kandwick in connection with the placing ; of Panacre instead of Sydney Damsel — a mistake, by the way, which cost the A.T.C. , about £7.00. Judges who can't see straight , are anything but popular, and if this sort ; of thing goes on the public will be clamor- - ir.g for the appointment of an official op- ; tician. ' ; Jockey Meddick (Sweet Rosaleen) seemed i to be afraid of winning the Sires' Produce ' Stakes too easily, and occasionaly looked \ round to see i£ anything was coming. He certainly got all he was looking for when Millieme happened along, but it is just possible that the ...

WHO PAY THE TAXES? To the Editor, "Labor News." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 24 May 1919

Wtfb ^PAV THE TAXES? To the Editor, 'Labor News.' Sir, — In reply to Senator Grant re taxa tion, or, to give it its proper name, con fiscation, the statement that no matter how or in what form taxation is imposed the wpjFkers have to pay it, is a cold, hard fact, an undeniable truth that cannot be side-stepped. The reason why this truth is not more generally realised is because of the exist ing delusion that taxation is paid .with money, whereas it is not. You cannot eat money, neither can you make clothes to wear out of it nor build houses with it. The workers pay all taxation, but they do not pay it with money. They pay it with their eweat and blood and lives. Taxation first creates and then maintains an army of loafers and parasites. Every increase in taxation increases this rray, and, paradoxical as it . may seem, but none the less true, every addition f to this army of loafers an3 parasites creates the need for further taxation. This army cannot. pay taxation, because' as they ...

A Different Thing. 'I suppose you're hungry,' a maiden said To a gent, who'd been out all day, Riding around the farmers' homes To buy up their wheat and hay. 'Oh, not at all, for the folks I met Were remarkably kind and good. You have splendid neighbors around you here; They treat one as white men should.' With mocking laughter the girl replied, 'You think they are alright men, But you put up a swag and go tramping about And see how they'll treat you then.' — J.H., in 'The Worker.'

Who Really Governs? [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 24 May 1919

Who Really Governs? Bernard Shaw, in his play entitled, 'Major Barbara,' sums up the present social conditions in a splendid manner, more especially the relationship existing between the worker, the politician, and the present form of government. Undershaft, a munition manufacturer, says: 'The Government of your country; I am the Government of your country, I and Lazarus. Do you suppose that you end half a dozen amateurs like you, sit ting in a row in that foolish gabble shop, can govern Undershaft and Lazarus? No, : ? fay friend, you will do what pays us'. You (will make war when it suits us, end keep peace when It doesn't. You | Will find out that trade requires certain 'measures, when we have decided on those measures.

Tasmanian Elections. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 24 May 1919

Tasmanian Elections. (From our own Correspondent.) No fewer than sixty candidates are seeking to save Tasmania by jostling- tor the thirty Assembly seats; which of course means that on the morning of June 1 (which will be the morning after the night before) thirty patriots will find themselves free to travel on the railway trains by buying a ticket, even as you and I. The report to. the effect that Tasmania hoped to defray the whole cost of the elections out of dropped 'sinkers' now needs modification. The first rosy report was based on the rumor that some sixty five candidates intended to nominate for the thirty miserable little £200 a year jobs now vacant, in which event the State Treasurer would have been justified in preparing for a whole netful of easily-: earned revenue. At least ten £25 forfeits were distinctly 'visible in the offing, and the State Treasurer wore a wide antici patory grin for several days on end. After nomination day the grin was less ex pansive, but it is st...
