On the Verandah Down the 'Loo. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 31 May 1919

: 4SJE*iOik /ft wjw$$ ri Down the 'Loo. Young Larrikin Larry goes whistling of ships, . . A vaudeville tune in the twist of his lips. O. jaunty his step, with his cap to one side, He swings down the street with a sailor man's pride. And low on the pavement, a child in her arms, Soft-humming of pantomime fairies' pink charms, Sits wee Mother Mary, her eyes like the sky When Summer is sowing her bluebells on high. The bells of St. Mary's ring 'Children are dear,' The ships at the quay bring the old coun tries near— ? And these call to worship, and these call to boys Who whistle of Life with a capful of joys. Young Larrikin Larry looks out on the sea With his eyes full of all the old waves' mystery. Of pirates and seamen and far lands he dreams, While over the harbor the happy sun streams. But back on the pavement young Mary chants low For fear she should waken the child she loves so; And good Mother Mary herself looking down Keeps a vigil of Love over Poverty Town.

RUSSIAN SITUATION. (From the Special Correspondent of the Australian Press Association.) PARIS. Mav 22. The Councilof Four this morning dis cussed the new situation in Russia, con sequent upon the Bolsheviks' refusal of the conditions of the Nansen revictualling scheme. A Bolshevist wireless message. to-day endeavors to suggest-that they did not refuse the terms. ? This is apparently an attempt to re-open negotiations. Kerensky and seven other members of the first Russian National Assembly and the officials of two other Russian Repub lican societies have issued a manifesto, protesting against the recognition of Ad miral Koltchak, and against Allied inter vention in Russia until it~ts 'asked by a Government willing to reconstitute the National Assembly.

A Daughter's Letter [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 31 May 1919

[?] Dear Mother, — I noticed that a writer in one of the daily papers lamented the wretched taste in home decorations shown by the poor. I can imagine the dear lady] with her head in the air and an aristo cratic sniff — her husband owns two ter races in the slums — poking into the ciowded home which is let on the princi ple of one family to one room, and looking at the prints on the walls. Shocking, shocking! Such dreadful tawdry things, so faded and brown, so altogether beneath notice as works of art! When slio spoke of them in scathing terms the poor woman v.ho rents the room felt too hurt to make' any reply. She did not say that the pic tures were of no interest to her, that she had neither chosen them nor desired them, that they were part of the misfit furniture of the house, and that she would be very glad to get away from them as soon as she could. No, she just felt crushed and ashamed and listened to the scolding on art by one whose ideas on the subject were quite as limited ...

The Hungarians point out that the, Rou manians if they 'conquer Hungary will turn against the Ukraine. * ?; ♦ * The foregoing cable news is probably about as reliable as similar stuff whicJf has appeared in' the press every day for months.

FOOTBALL. RUGBY LEAGUE. SOUTH'S FIRST WIN. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 31 May 1919

FOOTBALL. RUGBY LEAGUE. SOUTH'S FIRST WIN. An enormous crowd turned out to see a fine exhibition of Rugby League football at the Agricultural Ground last Saturday. The result of the game meant a great deal to Souths, and their victory was due to the efforts of their speedy back, division, together with Oxford's contribution to the score. He notched ten points. He kicked five goals in seven attempts. As antici pated in this column last 'week, Glebe's forwards always had the red and green pack zn band, but their backs did not possess the turn of speed exhibited by Hallett's men. Bolewski for a time* during ?the progress of 'the game kicked goal for goal against the brilliant Oxford. During the second half of the game the crowd was on its feet cheering the teams while the scores see-sawed. Both Harold Horder and Norman, by unpardonable mistakes, lost golden opportunities to add tries to South's scores. The final scores were: South Sydney, 18; Glebe, 14. *v * * * NORTHS OUTCLASSED.

THE MINIMUM WAGE AND RACE SUICIDE. WHERE ARE THE MORAL UPLIFTERS? [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 31 May 1919

THE MINIMUM WAGE AND RACE SUICIDE WHERE ARE THE MORAL UPLIFTERS? Some years ago 'moral uplifters' throughout Australia started an agi tation on the subject of race suicide. The aid of the Church was invoked, and many sermons were preached duly anathematising the heinous crimes of birth prevention and the destruction of pre-natal life. Strong representations were made to the Federal Government, and, as a result of all this agitation, a Boyal Com mission was appointed, which, in due time, produced a ponderous volume, copies of which are to be found in all our public libraries. Prance the Horrible Example. In all the discussions on this some what unsavory topic, France, with her traditional policy of a family of four, consisting of father, mother, and two children, was always held up to public execration as the hor rible example of a nation which had reduced the policy of race suicide to a fine art. To-day our New South Wales Wages Boards when consider ing the question of a minimum Aus...

fc- _ DELEGATES ATTENTION! While you are in Sydney you have an exceptional opportunity to have any de fective teeth attended. Recently a busy business man wrote a testimonial of my work. Here is what he said: 'EXCELLENT WORK PROMPrLY, PATIENTLY, PAINLESSLY DONE.' £ould he have said more if he had used ten times the number of words? Could you ask a finer recommendation than is expressed in those well-chosen six ex pressive words? He might have added: 'At fees that are fair, moderate, and within the reach of all pockets.' But he left that to me to impress upon you. If you fully appreciate that all my work is guaranteed to produce just such recom mendation as is expressed in the fore going I am convinced that you will feel that any work required in your mouth will receive the attention you desire only if done by me.

THE RETURNED OFFICERS' PARTY. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 31 May 1919

THE RETURNED OFFICERS' PARTY. We have had a returned Captain, a re turned Lieutenant, and a returned Chap lain vainly attempting to enter Parlia ment within the last few weeks, and, of course, eager to sacrifice themselves in the interests of the common soldier. Now what is the matter with letting the non-com., or even the full private, have a shot on bis own account? Think it over, Diggers, ? ♦ ? THE REASON WHY! An ordinary revolutionist wants to get rid of kings and kaisers. A Bolshevik feels that way to, but he also desires to get rid of the much more dangerous capitalist as well. . That is the sole reason why the Bolshe vik is hated, maligned, and suppressed by 'law and order,' land that is why I also am a Bolshevik, ' , ' REBEL.

GRANNY "HERALD" AND SOCIALISM. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 31 May 1919

GRANNY 'HERALD' AND SOCIALISM. 'Sydney Morning Herald' has been publishing a series of special antiSocial ist articles to prove that its adoption would be of no great advantage to any one, and especially useless to the working classes. One of the so-called arguments of tbe writer is, that if all the surplus over a fixed income was divided among all those wbofia - inooaao was feolosxr .±fa&. PlittlSOll^ mark, it would only amount to a few shil lings apiece. This is another variation of the ancient absurdity about the folly of 'dividing up' the wealth of the nation into equal shares. No Socialist ever proposed a 'divide-up,' but on the contrary an amalgamation of wealth. No one desires to divide up the publicly owned roads, streets and parka, nor the post offices or x-ailway lines, or any other collectively-owned asset. If all the people owned all the land and all the capital, and all the big mines, factories, foundries and workshops, no body would want to carry his share home...
