THE LADY FROM LONDON [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 14 January 1893

THE LADY FROM LONDON When Miss Shaw, the lady correspon-   dent of the Times, was doing Queensland she spent some time with Squatter Hopkins (notoriously one of the best hated   pastoralists in the country) at Portland Downs. One afternoon in company with her host and the shed overseer she visited   the shearers' mess. The lady's style and dress gave rise to some amount of curiosity   amongst the men, to whom she ... to have opened her mind with the habitual frankness of a tourist. They invited her to a pannikin of tea. She said it was 'most beautiful.' Then hearing that       there was a union organiser on the station expressed her wish to have a chat with him. Drake Wood was doubtful about the utility of talking Labour to a lady who was receiving so much attentionfrom the   other side. However, in the end it was arranged that she should drive down to the shed again in the evenin...

NEW AUSTRALIA MOVEMENT. Another Woman on New Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 14 January 1893

NEW AUSTRALIA MOVEMENT. Another Woman on New Australia.   There has been a good bit said and written about the way men should look at New Australia, but nothing much about how women should look at it, which is hardly the thing — is it?— seeing that women are in it, too, and must be in it to a very considerable extent if it isn't to atop short never to go again after the first generation, if not sooner. Well, I'm in for one, and if any can tell me why I shouldn't be I'd like to hear from them at once. Maybe you've read, in a book not com- monly read nowadays, of a squatter named Job, who had boils and three friends who came to comfort him. Between the boils and the friends I fancy poor Job must have concluded that the boils were the lesser evil. Anyway, I've got various loving friends, of the Job's comforter per- suasion, who go out of their way to look me up and, after bringing the conversation round to New Australia, to hold up their hands in pantomimic sympathy and to...

Down the River-Down the I.O.U. (With a p[?]logi[?]s to the original Christy Minstrels.) [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 14 January 1893

Down the River— Down the I.O.U. ( With apologies to the original Christy Minstrels.) In consequence of the representations of Sir Thomas McIlwraith, director of the Queensland Meat Export Company, Sir Thomas McIlwraith,   Colonial Treasurer, has lent the company £12,000 from the Brands Act Trust Fund.] O the river is up, but the cash is down, and the spec is a losing one ; There are woeful faces in Brisbane town, for credit is nearly done ; " Come, cheer up, boys," hear the chair- man bawl, "you've the Treasury at your backs, 'Tis true it is empty, but, hang it all ! we'll pop on another tax." The strings are pulled — he winks his eye, puts his finger to his nose, 'The figure works — he slaps his thigh — and you know where the money goes ! Down the river, down the river, down the I.O.U. —     That is where the money goes ; workers may look blue ;     All the way to Torres Straits they've got no work to do. Business thr...

A Pilgrim in the West. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 21 January 1893

A Pilgrim in the West. See yonder line of famished beasts In search of scanty water ; The splintered hoof but onward hastes 'Midst burning stones to clatter. The sunken eye the wild dog frights ; The panting sides so hollow Will scarcely feed the carrion kites On ragged wings that follow. No limpid pool to quench your thirst Lies cool in gum trees shadow, But scorching winds and blinding dust Your fainting footsteps follow. No pastures green by silver stream, No ehady groveB invite them hither ; Here death and desolation grim Seem to abide for ever. ~ How well the scene resembles here The track of toiling man : A hopeless -view, a scalding tear, ' And — life ends where it began. Pooh Jim.

A few years back (pays the Nord Aus trtilijtckr. Xf.it.fuui) Kbw Zealand was in pretty nearly the same critical position as at thi6 moment our so rich and yet so poor Queensland.
