"An Ordinary Working Man." [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 24 December 1892

'An Ordinary Working Kan.' How often do we hear the expression: An 'ordinary' working man, 'just an ordinary working man.' Jesus Christ was an ordinary working man, and to-day men resembling Him go to work whistling or singing with baskets of tools on their backs. An ordinary working man is one of the best works of creation — a man in God's own image. The expression^ ' An ordinary working man-' is one that a man may well ftml nrrmrl nf vvlipii ho him tinhliinc tfiArfrnA when he known that he can always obtain work at fair wages, and his employer doesn't expect rsore than a fair day's work. But how when the 'ordinary' working man is pitched out from an hotel or left in the gutter helplessly drunk ? The ordinary working man is then scarcely worth looking at. The world is crying out for intelligent working men. Not men who can be bought and sold for liquor, who lose their reason iiFlfauor, or wjtjo cjaim it as a glorious privilege to have an^MScasional out burst. Tyrants have to be fou...

HEW AUSTRALIA [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 24 December 1892

NEW AUSTRALIA The S.A. JPiondr, in a leading artiole upon the New Australia , MovemeBl, says : It looks attractive and somewhat feasible at first glanoe, but examined closely we are bound to say that, for our part, we doubt both its practicability and necessity. There is too much of the ' cut-and-dried ' system ^bouTr^tfew^AiiBtralia^1 — Society is ~ar growth, an evolution. As is the case with the individual so with society; given the opportunity, each must work out its own material salvation. We do not believe in the system of state-regulated socialism that 'New Australia' undoubtedly would be. It tends to tyranny, uniformity, stagnation, and death. We believe in plac ing mankind on the same and at the game time, a safe platform or foundation, and then allowing a natural growth to ensue. Any system of co-operation, if desired, must then be purely voluntary, and allow freedom' to the individual JCtmuat not be regulated by officials. If it is so regulated, tyranny in its many forms w...

THE EDITORIAL MILL Christmas makes me angry, I try to think of what it ought to be and can onljr ranember what it is. Your festival is a mockery. God, if he be honest, hates it. Christ, if he is indeed the poor man's friend, will curse you for it With your careless holidays and your special Christ mas numbers, you outrage the sense of decent men. xne very goose, roasted ana served with apple sauce on the rich man's table, quacks^n protestation as that rich man lays his dull brains on the pillow of his bed. Not that the rich man is more selfish than others. His digestion is Weaker— that is all.

The Political Auction. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 24 December 1892

The Political Auction. A Correspondent writes : A delegate of the Pastoralists' Associ ation wrote to one of his partisans just after Labour's triumph in the stronghold of the pure merino, that he was going to run as a Labour candidate lor a Darling Downs constituency, as the Labour ticket was BeeBringly the winning one. He was about to issue a manifesto declaring in favour of -©ne-mfin-oae-VGtej the- eight-hour day, the land tax, and every measure of -the— advanced party. But the , Bulimba and Musgrav© elections brought rejoicings to. the Griffil wraith, and then the aspiring candidate told his friend that it was lucky he had not been in a hurry with the mani festo, as the majority of the electors seemed to be what Carlyle calls fools, and tbe old shibboleths were_good enough to. go to the polls on for another (?eneral election at least. Judas himself was evidently of the same opinion at the time, but his anxiety for the £3500 a year grabship seems T» in dicate that he is not so su...

GILBERT CASEY WRITES: [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 31 December 1892

GILBERT CASRT WRITES : As my paflsions and desires are to me, so all men are to Humanity. When I understand myself, when I understand the evils of my nature, when my animal passions and desires, hopes and fears are subordinated to my higher or better nature, then and not till then will there be peace and happiness within me. Suffering and pain are Nature's warning. They are the signs of .our ignorance ; they are the beacons that warn us of danger. If we heed them not we rush headlong to destruction. Suffering is the key to true knowledge. No man can know like the man who feels. -— Sympathy gives us greater understanding than books. Humanity is to-day being scourged by its passions and desires, its hopes and fears must be subordinated to its higher and better nature. Humanity is being taught as the individual is being taught that the gratification of any particular passion or desire is injurious unless its exercise is regulated by a due regard for the whole of which it forms a part. ...
