Louise Bryant on Russia. 'When the Cossacks marched oh Petro grad to crush the new-born Soviet Go vernment, Louise Bryant, a slender young American girl, was one of the host that rushed out to drive them back. 'Red Petrograd must not fall,' they cried, and poured out to the city gates, men, women ? and children, poorly armed or unarmed, completely unorganised, to defeud the ?world's first social-democracy. 'When I saw that battle,' says Louise Bryant, 'I knew that nothing could defeat the Rus sian people.' 'I didn't want to lecture o.bout Russia,' she says, 'but when we few Americans who have been there returned to this country and iieard the lies that were ? being circulated about the revolution we had to speak the truth. We could not keep from it. I do not pretend to be unpre judiced about the Russian revolution. It is the greatest thing in the world. Could one have gone through the French Revo lution and remained neutral?' So Louise Bryant, formerly a war cor respondent behind bo...

Showers, heavy at times, fell at fre quent intervals in the city yesterday. Be tween the hours 'of 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. 63 points were recorded at the Weather Bureau. A RECORD. The total rainfall at Sydney for the pre sent month now stands at 2034 points (over 20 inches), whit^i is almost a record, for it is the highest 'amount recorded for the month of May since 1889, when 2087 points fell. .

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER PUBLIC LIBRARY OF N.S.W. Corner Bent and Macquarie streets. TWO NEW BOOKS. COLE, G. D. H.: "LABOR IN THE COMMONWEALTH." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 31 May 1919

pwg^^^ffi PUBLIC LIBRARY OF N.S.W. Corner Bent and Macquarie streets. TWO NEW BOOKS. COLE, G. D. H.: 'LABOR IN THE COM MONWEALTH.' ft . In writing this book the author writes, ? not of abstract Labor as a term in the ;? economic relation of Capital and Labor, ' but of indiivdual men and women, who, ]?'? taken together, form the vast majority of ; ?...- : the people in any Commonwealth. In Mr. '(.- . Cole's opinion the key to the industrial '? problem lies in the status of Labor in the .': . workshop and at its work. 'As long as :' the conditions of work remain such that ;? Lr.bor has to sell its man-power to Capi '' tal, eurrenderiog in return for a living ; ?-. wage all control over production or over the product, it is useless to talk as if the humanity of Labor were recognised. Such conditions are themselves the very denial of Labor's humanity.' It is for this, the humanity and Individuality of every single - member of the laboring class, that the author's plea is made.

'* The Case for the O.B.U.' 1 a review; r. ? .; We have receded 'The Case. for the O.B.-U.,' by Hi E. .Judd,-just published. . This \s a pamphlet of ..80 -pages,', printed at 'The Worker' Office, and on sale at siypence per copy. This work is one of , exceptional merit from the cogency of its arguments ex pressed in clear, simple, and convincing language. The declaration of principles and aims, known as the 'Preamble,' on which the Workers' Industrial Union (known as the O.B.U.) is based, is taken clause by clause, analysed 'and every claim made proved right up to the hilt. Numerous quotations are made and ac knowledged from American and European writers of world-wide renown on social and industrial problems. The political objects and methods of the new form of industrial organisation are fully explained, and the point is stressed of the absolute necessity for po litical power if only 'to secure and main tain such rights as free speech, free press, right of assemblage, right to orga...

NATIONALISATION OF LAND INCREMENT. To the Editor, "Labor News." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 31 May 1919

|-;NATIONAi.«SAriON OF tAND |2, INCREMENT. To the Editor, 'Laber News.' l^Sir,— Will you allow me to say, in an S jfeer to Mr. a! Griffith,1' that the crux of If, Me moral aspect of the land question lies |g 5|$t»Sther or hot the community has the ||j|iH»t^ta sell to any individual something ^^^feg^L f or jthe use, of all the'ihembers, ^^?Serjstan^ from -what Mr. Griffith-says in to-day's issue that he denies it having the right (though, '-of course, not the power) to do so.' How, then, I ask, can a right that does not exist;be transferred? It is important in my opinion to prevent moral confusion in our minds to keep well in view that there is an essential differ ence between land, the gift of God, and' wealth, the result of man's exertion. A one-time Premier of New South : Wales said he considered land merely as a com modity, to be bought and sold like any other commodity. But the Labor Party have riot, I believe, so far (in theory,' at any rate) given any countenance or sup port t...

THE WORKERS' PARADISE. To the Ed;tor 'Labor News.' Sir, — The following extracts should be of some interest to flag-flappers who have so much to say about 'liberty and free dom in dear old England': Evidence of the late General Booth over 30 years ago : ,444 persons are reported by the police to have. attempted to com mit suicide' in London last year, and pro bably as | many more succeeded in doing so; 200 died from starvation in the same period.' We have in this one city about 10,000 paupers, 30,000 prostitutes, 33,000 homeless adults, and 35,000 wandering children of the slums. There is a stand ing army of out-of-works numbering 80,000, which is often increased to1 100,000 by commercial depression or trade dis putes; 12,000.criminals:are inside Her Ma jesty's prisons, and about 15;000 outside; 70,^)00 charges for petty offences are dealt with by the London magistrates every year* The best authorities estimate that 10,000 new criminals , are manufactured per annum.

THE NATIONALISATION OF LAND INCREMENT. To the Editor, "Labor News." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 31 May 1919

THE NATIONALISATION OF LAND INCREMENT. To the Editor, 'Labor News.' Sir, — I have to apologise to Mr. Arthur Griffith, as I find that I was under the impression that the increment capital tax, according to .his scheme, would fall periodically, say, at the termination of leases or every five years as in the Eng lish system.- :??-?-?? : ? ? c But I would like to add that the idea of placing even 2 per cent, per annum, presuming that represents 50 per cent on the annual increment would kfter the first year cease to operate on any incre ment -f. or -some time to come. And this lor two reasons. First, the capital value of the land in~~question would fall by the capitalised ' value of the amount of tax paid. And, second, the balance of the capital value* would take a', severe ? slump, because' the 'forced release of land through the action of a 2 per cent, tax would* lower the economic rent itself, ' which is the basis -of the capital value. For example: Land having a capital value (u.cy....

EVOLUTION MID REVOLUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 31 May 1919

EVOLimON AND REVOUmON. (ISSUED BY THE LEAGUE OF GOOD CITIZENSHIP.] Over seventy years ago Karl Marx said : 'The workers have nothing to lose but their chains.' At that time, in the United States, the negro siave was still hunted with bloodhounds, and flogged lo death and sold away from his wife and children. In Russia the serf was still a chattel, almost an animal, and many years from hfs- emancipation. In France the second abortive attempt to establish a Republic had not even been made. Italy was still under the heel of Austria and of Bomfoa, and awaiting her Garibaldi. In England it was only a few years before that the working of children under ten in coal mines had been forbidden. In nearly every country education was confined to the well-to-do. Tbe Europe of that day Was as different from the Australia of this as night from day. Yet we are still told that the worker has nothing to lose but his chains. As man quietly accepts as a matter of course the good which he has gained in t...
