No title UNION DEADLOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 31 May 1919

Tramway Amalgamation. UNION DEADLOCK. A deadlock has arisen in regard to the proposed -amalgamation of the Tramway Traffic Association, and the Tramway Em ployees' Union. ' . A meeting of the members of the Traffic Association was held on Wednesday, and they were of the opinion that under the. proposal foramalgamation the election of. executive positions would be monopolised 'by. the persons nominated by the Tram way Union. The Traffic Association, it was considered, would not have sufficient representation to protect the interests of its members. It was further decided that the proposed ballot should be postponed. The members were not in favor of amalgamation untiess it provided for equal representation \ of the.- two organisations on the executive committee. It h? proposed to hold a further con ference between the representatives of the* two organisations. One body is composed of the men who struck in 1817, and, the' members of the other body either didn't strike at all or went ba...

A Study in Capital Value. II [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 31 May 1919

A Study in Capital Value. IL Before considering the method of attack upon capital value, it is necessary to care fully consider the class of result aimed at. The position is as follows: Exploitation and capital value are linked together. Which is cause and which effect? Again, in which form is the working class going to feel the benefit: an increase in money wages, or a reduction in the cost of living? Without going into details and discussing the advantage of an attack upon the high cost of living rather than upon an increase in money wages, the former is taken as thr- more satisfactory for many reasons. It may be as well at this point to show how this increase in the purchasing power of money without a drop in money wages must result from the elimination of the non -producer. It can be effected by no other means, although we are told by the powers that be that only by Increasing the total production will the working class be hotter off. It is just because it pays the worker better...

Now is the Time. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 31 May 1919

Now is the Time. Tlie seamen's strike automatically in volves the wharf laborers, who thus be come parties to the dispute. It is, there fore, up to the wharfies to seek some im-' provement in their own , lot, and for wharfies and sailors to stand by each other until both secure their demands. Since the 1917. strike there has been np peace upon the wharves, where the best unionists have been systematically starved and boycotted by the employers, aided by the dirty underhand tactics of the strike-breaking State Government. 15he opportunity should certainly be taken to wipe out the scab unions, as was done in Fremantle recently, and thereby secure 'peace with viotory.' If this be not done now it will require doing later on, and, therefore, necessitate two strikes where one should be suf ficient to clear up the whole waterfront. Wo do not advocate any injustice being done to any man. Let the settlement provide for returned soldiers, for so-called 'loyalists,' and for any others who so d...

Russian Notes. THE HED TERROR. Last week we published an extract from the memorandum presented on March 19 1 to the United States Government l-y the' credentiutled representative of the Soviet Republic, Air. I*. A. Martens. In the same memorandum Mr. Martens says: — . | 'One of the. most frequent allegations fcns been that the rule of the Soviets is one of violence and murder. In this con ? nection I want to call your attention to ] the following; passages in the note sent to : the President of the United States on December 24, 1918, by Maxim Litvinoff, on behalf of the Soviet Government in Jlussia. '. - . The chief aim of the Soviets is to secure for the toiling majority of Russian j people economic liberty, without which j political liberty, is of no avail to them. For eight months the Soviets endeavored to realise their aims by peaceful methods without resorting to violence, adhering to the abolition of capital punishment, which abolition had been part of their pro gramme.

Retirement of Organiser Andrews. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 31 May 1919

Retirement of Organiser Andrews. After a strenuous period extending over nearly 29 years in an official capacity, Mr. Jack Andrews has severed his official connection with the Australian Workers' Union, consequent on his appointment to the Board of Trade. Jack started his official career in the A.W.U. when this mammoth organisation of to-day was fighting hard for its very existence as a Union. Its present position, in the industrial world, operating as it does from the Gulf of Carpentaria to the Southern Ocean, and embracing over 100,000 workers, is due to men of the Andrews type, wbpse organising abilities and faith in their cause saved it from disaster in its infant stage. Jack Andrews was one of, the stalwart band who assisted in defeating the de structive designs of the boss-instituted and boss-ridden bogus Machine Shearers' Union .in its endeavors to wreck the A.W.U. And in other directions he was untiring in his efforts for the betterment of the conditions of the bush worker. ...

Labor Wins. Hear the cry! Home and dry! Poor Billy is suffering for his sins. Both Bill and poor old Car. Are really on a par.

'~- Labor's flag will not drag In the gutter when once the fight begins. 'Twill proudly lead the way To a brighter, better day. Labor rats are out now to save their skins. In Paddington they see Their future destiny, They know the cry will be 'Labor Wins!' To tlie tray! pon't delay! Though the vultures sardonically grin, Their smiles will turn to moans Beneath their crumbling thrones, They will all be submerged up to the chin 'Neath Democracy's wave, And we'll plant on their grave, 'Exit the plund'ring knave, ? Labor Wins!' RUFDS.

' A Red Flag Victim. - A case of extreme hardship is being taken up by Southern unionists. It is in regard to Mrs. Rickie, who was sent to jail in Victoria for a month for flying the Red Flag. The facts of the case, as outlined by-F.1 J.-Riley in a communication to the 'Workeri' are that ,Hrs. Rickie was sen fenced some' time'&go, but the sentence, was suspended to allow^ her to enter a hospital in order to undergo an operation. The operation was performed, but^he is still very weak.

Proportional Voting and the Political Outlook. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 31 May 1919

Proportional Voting and the Political Outiook. - AH sorts of surmises'are being rumored about among all parties as to the proba bilities in connection with the fate of the new electoral law. In some Nationalist quarters there is known to be grave dissatisfaction with the probable outcome of the new distribu- tiOn of electorates, and those who are afraid of. dropping their bundles would rather drop the new Act. However, the Nationalist Party pinned its faith and its fate to the proportional system, and now finds it a mighty difficult proposition to get back to the 'as-you- were' position. The Act provides that the new redis tribution, if not objected to- by Parlia ment, comes into operation automatically at the end of June. The working of the Act is, however, left almost entirely to regulations, with out which it would be a dead letter. These regulations must first be laid be fore Parliament, which can amend or re ject, or may simply waste time in talking about them. ? If rejected, P...

Seamen's Strike. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 31 May 1919

Seamen's Strike. The Seamen's Union is on strike in! Queensland, Victoria and New South Wales. Their demands are for a six-hour j de,y, a rise, in wages from £12/5/- and i £14/5/- to £14 and £16 per month, with 3/- per hour for overtime, improved bed ding and eating accommodation, compen sation for injuries sustained in their work, and compensation to relatives and depen dents of those who die from such injuries. It is reported that the South Australian Branch refuses to join in the strike. It cannot be fairly argued that there] is anything unreasonable in these de mands, judged by the wages paid to work ers on land. - . A seaman's life is easily twice as dan gerous as the average shore job), in addi tion to which he is .cut off from all ? the comforts of home and all the1 pleasures and amusements of ordinary civilised life ashore. . . .

What the Municipal Labor Party is Doing in Sydney. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 31 May 1919

What die Municipal Labor Party fs Doing in Sydney. Readers of the 'Labor News' are aware that the City Council general elections of December last returned an equal number of Labor and anti-Labor aldermen, but the election of the. late Alderman John English as Lord Mayor gave Labor the casting vote on all important party divisions. This advantage was, however, soon lost by the lamented death of the first Labor Lord Mayor, and the election in his place' of a Nationalist whose casting vote goes for Toryism on all crucial questions. It must not be imagined, however, that the Labor aldermen have been idle or with out influence. . ? In a recent interview with Alderman W. H. Lambert, Chairman of the Finance Commitee, some interesting particulars were obtained of the recent activities of the Party. At the last meeting- of the Council (20/5/'19), on a motion emanating from the Labor Party, the working hours of the ashmen in the electric power house were reduced from 8 to 6 per day without an...

Repatriation and Patriotism. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 31 May 1919

Repatriation and Patriotism. The following items of information, culled from the columns of the Nationalist press, should prove of special interest to returned soldiers: — The Government is prepared to make large and liberal purchases of estates for repatriation purposes. ''Landed patriots who have holdings . to dispose of will re ceive gilt-edged 41 per cent. TAX FREE bonds in exchange for their properties. Mr. Ashford is making a tour through the districts of Coonamble, Gilgandra, Dubbo, Wellington, and Orange looking for patriots who want to escape future taxa tion. Mr. ' Ashford's private secretary has patriotically resigned his post, and will in future devote his undivided attention to professional land agency. A substantial increase in the amount of land available for repatriation purposes is confidently 'expected' in the hear' future.' The only tiy in tne political oinunent pot appears to be the fact that hundreds of patriotic- real estate agents zealously canvassed for the N...

The Concentration of Industry. WHY THE WORKER MUST ORGANISE. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 31 May 1919

i^lie Concentration of Industry. WHY THE WORKER MUST ORGANISE. (By WESTRALIAN.) Whether the scheme propounded for the scientific organisation of -the working class is adequate or otherwise is no rea son why workers should refuse to have anything to do with ideas of Big Unionism. Perhaps the most brilliant exposition of tie position of the workers, compared with the position of the few in society * who constitute the capitalist class, that has ever been presented to the Trades 'Unions of this country is the Preamble of the Workers' Industrial Union of Aus tralia. No matter how the capitalistic -owned newspapers may denounce it as treason able or false, the fact remains that it has never been proved to be wrong, for the particular reason that it cannot. It is right, and Capitalism knows it is right, and that is why they are fighting it for all their worth. They have adopted many and various ways to discredit the O.B.U. ? through its Preamble. They say that it is taken from the I.W.W. ...

FOOTBALL. BALMAIN OUTCLASS SOUTHS. HOROER'S GREAT RUN. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 7 June 1919

FOOTBALL. BALWA1N OUTCLASS SOUTHS. HOROER'S GREAT RUN. An enormous -crowd, numbering in the vicinity of 20,000, attended the Sydney Cricket Ground- tojw'itnees the game be tween Balmain and South Sydney Rugby League' teams, which was played in glorious weather. Excitement ran high during the whole -of the game, and a great exhibition of the code was given. It was expected, in view of Souths' improving play, that the 'Mains would have to show their hest form. The hopes of the Red and Green supporters were very soon: shattered. Within the first fifteen minutes of play Balmain rattled up 13 points to nil. As the result of clever work by Harold Horder, Shcelian crossed over just before half-time, when the scores were: Balmain 13 to 6. Shortly after the interval Harold Horder gave an exhi bition of his speed. Running from his team's 25, he toeat the opposition, and scoi-ed' a clever try, *which was ? not con verted. For. a time Souths' play im proyed, tout the 'Mains soon broke through a...
