CORRESPONDENCE. NATIONALISATION OF LAND INCREMENT. To the Editor, "Labor News." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 24 May 1919

CORRESPONDENCE. I NATIONALISATION OF LAND INCRE '^ MENT, To the Editor, 'Lalior JTews.? Siri— t would like to reply itf^ae few i^oras -as possible to the v^y feljjperate 'and reasoned criticisms by yoiur three ebr .respondentB, Mr. A. G. Hule, 'P.W.H.,' and 'Mortmain,' on my proposal for the appropriation l-y the Slate of the future Increments on all alienated lands. ; Mr. Huie describes as 'amazing' my contention that there exists a moral bar 'to the adoption of Henry George's pro iposals to confiscate existing land values, 'and asserts that 'George did not propose to take any man's land from him.' This is technically true, but in essence and in fact, as George admits,1 his proposal to confiscate its value amounts to the same thing. He wouia Jeave the landowner hi6 tille deeds but nothing else. According to Knibbe, ihere are in Australia to jdey 581,241 persons owning blocks of land from £10 to £600 in value. Most of these men have paid their hard-earned money , for this land eithe...

Spelling Reform [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 24 May 1919

Spelling Reform One of tlie most necessary social re forms of the present age is spelling sim- r plification. The adoption of something ap- , proaching the phonetic system would save kn average of two years on the school life of each and every English-speaking child. - ' mere is no question of the value of our childhood's days for acquiring know- ~ - | ledge. If, therefore, we could make five i years' education produce * results equal .. to what now requires seven years, this would enable every boy or .girl to escape . much of the drudgery and useless worry they now endure. It. would also relieve ? teachers of an enormous amount of veaca- ' tious, soul- worrying work, and' leave both pupil and teacher with sweeter tem pers and more time for better things. ] To obstinately ? retain our present con- — I fused and obsolete methods of spelling : when* a better method could be quite easily devjsed is about 'as idiotic as it *' would be for a person possessing a sharp knife to persist in ...

The Capitalist Press. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 24 May 1919

The Capitalist Eress. ^ Labor readers are familiar. with the de-- -: j nunciation of the capitalist press,- but-, very few of them realise the full depth t o ' j its depravity. i. '\ j It is commonly assumed that the capi- ^j talist newspapers fight just as honestly j for their party views and ideals as Labor j editors do Cor- Labor principles. The man in the street with no very strong party leanings says, 'You are both alike — your Labor newspapers are just as *| extreme and biased on the one side as j the Tory journals are on Che other; in j fact, if anything' the average daily news paper is the fairer of the two, as it, does at times publish democratic .articles, while your Labor newspaper never has a good word for the capitalist.' ; j The reply to that is not to set up any claim for perfection in the Labor 'press, j but to point out that it has weH-defined | principles and ideals, while the capitalist j press has none, excepting those based ?? I purely on self-interest. ' I Whil...

Organised Labor of Organised 1 In the columns of that highly technical publication, -the -American 'Journal of In-' dustrial and Engineering Chemistry,' and j 'in the more popular pages of ''Current History,' . and other high-class American magazines, are to be found the ghastly details of a stupendous crime which sliculd startle iiit.o activity the slumbering collective conscience of the whole human . race. It was the far-flung boast of the 1 representatives of 'Big Business' in America that the very best business luains were at the disposal of the Ameri can Government for war purposes and l li.it 'efficiency' was the watchword of t)ie great war organisation. EFFICIENT MURDER. ; The signing of the armistice prevented , the actual practical application of 'Big Business' methods to modern warfare, but ti:ere is no room for doubt as to the dreadful efficiency of 'The Campaign of Preparedness.'

POINTS FOR PADDINGTON. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 24 May 1919

r!*5-b i*'^iiW'30S:;£u^-- vr*:* ?;. . -.; -^fi^^^^m^g^f^ : '' : By ONE WHO KNOWS, V ...Of course, as. is usual before an elec-. tjon the anti-Labor forces are peddling :nice promises to woo the elector — Captain 'Carmichael with his housing stunt and his education scheme, and Holman and Co. with their home-made Bolshevik braying and State catch-cries. Capt. Car should be judged more par ticularly so on deeds and not on proposi tions that may or may not eventuate as regards housing problems, although the 'hero Captain' may promise the electors of Paddington in common with others the ultimate possession of a glorified worker's mansion, all for a few shillings per week. Let us cursorily examine Captain Car michael's achievements in housing when as Assistant Treasurer some years back he had the Rocks resumed ai-ea under his control and administration. For instance, he informed members of the local Labor League that houses could not be let at less than 22/- to 21/- .weekly owing. to the ...

Willie's Way. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 24 May 1919

Willie's Way. 'Where is the great Labor Party?' cried Willie iHolman at Paddington. Whereat a loud and convincing voice shouted, 'Coming up the straight.' There is not much doubt that Willie felt the truth of the interjection. He has had a long run, but the game is just about fin ished. The partial defeat of his party at Petersham, coupled with the moral and real licking he is getting to-day, should set him thinking very hard. Unfortunately, Willie's thinking never ' raps 'in the direction of trying to make things better. He can fence, side-step, dodge, make excuses, and at times leap right over his own shadow, but in thinking qf these things he for gets the essentials. He has all the gifts making for popularity — a pleasing per sonality, a glib tongue, a general lightness and agility very charming' to the on looker—but the -one great charge against him in politics is that he has never done anything Trorth while. He' has had, 'and still has, tremendous opportunities, but' all he has...

? ? . . ? i^ . ' '? ? ?* ? ? Notes. Godby's team at Caulfield after a few weeks' spell at Baccbus Marsh. Shadow Dancer is a fine stayer, and is likely to be much in evidence when the Nationals come round. The New Zealand jockey, H. Gray, never rode in better form than this season. At the recent Manawatu meeting he rode in 11 races, winning 6, and up to May 14 he had won 74£ races, nearest him being C. Emerson with 491, and then B. Deeley 42 J. The steeplechaser Lord Cecil, who is owned down south, was sent to Melbourne last week. Publican, whose form was much below expectations at the recent A.J.C. carnival, is to have a little respite before being pre pared for the Spring campaign. His trainer, R. O'Connor, intends to send the horse to Windsor. Nightwatch has topweight (9.8) in the Birthday Cup, one and a half miles, at Adelaide on June 7. Ian 'Or has to carry 8.10, Anotto 8.0, and Anyhow 7.7.

lit, ||| The Newcastle Cup. The Newcastle Jockey Club will com mence its Cup meeting to-day (Saturday), and will finish on Wednesday. Kennaqu liair (3.13) has accepted lor the Cup, and will carry a stone more than anything else in the race. Thana, who ran a fair race In the Coogee Handicap at Bandwick, will have second top weight in the event, lOlbs. in advanc of Mount Alf, the third lioree on the card. Duke Alwyne, who has won this rce on two previous oc casions, may again have a chance with 8st., and Carbern (7st. 10b.), whose races at Randwick have improved him, should .not be overlooked. Amazonia (7st. 21b.) 5s sure to bo well backed, and will be suited by the distance. Lothian (7st. Gib.) was expected by his connections to do better at Randwick, and may be worth a tote investment in this race. On the 6st. 71b. mark, Rosewalk, who finished well behind Some Boy in the Canterbury Park Handicap a few weeks back, reads attrac tively. To finalise our fancies we like — Amazonia ? 1 Lo...

EDITORIAL. PADDINGTON BY-ELECTION. i ? ? ! | O'HARA'S VICTORY. i A WIN FOR MILITANCY. There is nothing very surprising in Iiabor winning the recent by-election. Labor has held the seat for some eight years, and Paddington being a working class electorate could be confidently relied uuon to give Labor a renewed majority. - At the same time there are two or three facts in connection with the contest de serving of mention. Owing tt- the electoral rolls being over two years old they are in a shockingly out-of-date condition. The, changes of residence among working-class tenants who have to follow their jobs are enor mously In excess of those ' among - the middle arid wealthy -classes who own their homes. ' . r ? . ??:.-.._ It is estimated that this cause alone accounts for several thousand disfran chised electors in Paddington. ? ' ~ ? The time between the resignation of the late member and the issue of the writ was so Indecently short that very few had any opportunity of getting on the...

KINGS OR SNEAKERS. To the Editor, "Labor News." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 31 May 1919

KINGS OR SNEAKERS. To the Editor, 'Labor News.' Sir, — The phrase, 'A king among men,' conveys the impression of a noble char acter, able and fit to rule. The true king is an aristocrat of aristocrats, or, as the French phrase so aptly puts its, the creme de la creme (cream of the cream) of humanity. It does one good to know and realise the nobleness of aim and character which invariably are associated with the real kings of men — the Christs, the Gautamas, the Knights of the Grail, the Hunyade Janos, the .Winklefrieds, the Tells, and hosts of other noble souls who scorned to do a petty action, and were positively incapable of harboring even a thought of meanness - or self seeking. Such are the kings«among men, and' the mere mention of that appella tion 'king' should call to mind the ideals and the doings of these and other such leaders of humanity. But what do we find? The press, even our own Labor press, seeks to sidetrack our thoughts by applying that semi divine term to the prof...
