STRAIGHT AUSTRALIAN NOT CONSCRIPTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 15 September 1910
[STRAIGHT AUSTRALIAN NOT CONSCRIPTION. I|i|pT* HE Defence proposals of the Austra llllj A tralian Government do not include |pj|iconseription in tlie sense in 'which that fefpvord 5s used iit connection with European iif li armies.:. The difference between compul !f fJIsorv enrolment and conscription is that I the latter provides for compulsory resi ||| deuce in barracks and continuous training ft for a number, of years, 'whereas tlie Aus |j|| traliair 'Labor .-proposals are tq compulsqrily j#-; enrol all fit persons and train them for 'a || i comparatively few hours- per year in the f|| interests of the country's defence. Therein H lies a vital difference which frees the Aus Sl tralian defence system from all the de I served condemnation that is inseparable ||| from old-world -conscription. In spite of III this fact a Labor contemporary recently ijf condemned the Federal Labor plank of a pB. citizen defence force and attributed all the Iff evils of conscription to it. This is rathe...
"IMPROPAH." [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 15 September 1910
'IMPROPAH.' A CTING- JUSTICE FITZHARDINGE * * sat upon a legal bully in the Central Criminal Court^on Thursday in true board ing house fashion. The bully had, in the words of the Judge, ' subjected a witness (an upright and decent girl), without the slightest foundation, to a highly improper attack when in the box endeavoring to do her duty in bringing a miscreant to jus -tlce.' An unjustifiable attack is, either in or out of court, 'highly impropah'; but why does His Honor allow this kind of thing? He didn't stop it, neither did he peremptorily condemn it. Perhaps it isn't etiquette to interrupt one of the Law's gentlemen; or perhaps His Honor had in mind his own unregenerate days, when he fought for his fees with much the same weapons. The stock-in-trade of all law yers doesn't materially differ — 'break dowrr the witness's testimony or break-up the witness,' is one of the trade maxims. They can attack and brow-beat witnesses With little fear of Bench reproof. Great advocates have...

RANDWICK DOINGS. Some fast gallops were recorded at Randwiclc towards the end of last fweek. The outside part of the course proper was open on Thursday last,, and Maltine ran a mile in 1.46, finishing well, so she must be coming on very nicely. On Saturday she only spurted,' as she held an engagement later in the day. Gold Lace ran a fast half mile on Thursday and Saturday, and is doing as well as could be desired.

CAULFIELD CUP BETTING. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 15 September 1910
CAULFIELD CUP BETTING. Prince Foote has paralysed speculation on the Caulfield Cup, and it is hard to get a quotation, but he is seven points shorter than Hoax, who is not at a very long price. Eyeglass is being backed . fairly well, and others asked for ar© Flaxen, Britain, Sequarious, and Sen tronus, but nothing is wanted hardly but Prince Foote. No liberties are taken with him for the Melbourne -Cup, for which he is a Ijetter favorite than Tra falgar, Comedy King, Alawa, Duke Foote* Blairgour, and Beverage, who follow in that order. .

COMPOSITORS & OPERATORS' APPEAL. DISMISSED BY INDUSTRIAL COURT. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 15 September 1910
COMPOSITORS & OPERATORS' APPEAL. DISMISSED BY INDUSTRIAL COURT. Judge Heydon delivered judgment last / week in the Industrial Court on the ap- ; peal of the employees against the award of the Printing (Compositors and Opera tors) Board. Regarding the claim that apprentices should not be allowed to learn ?to operate until their seventh year, his Honor said this was asking too much. What the machine operators asked was practically that they should be protected against apprentice competition, whilst the hand compositors should bear the whole brunt of it. It must be left to the em ployer to teach an apprentice in what was the most efficient and convenient way ac cording to the means existing in his office. Regarding the second claim, that machine operators' hours should be expressly fixed at 42, he thought it was a case of men asking that they be paid a higher rate for any hours worked over 42. It was there fore merely a question of overtime, the men seeking to have 42 hours in ...

THE ROOT OF THE EVIL. MOORE ANNOUNCES A GREAT DISCOVERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 15 September 1910
THE ROOT OF THE EVIL. MOORE ANNOUNCES A GREAT DISCOVERY. One A. H. Moore, who is president of the Sydney Employers' Association, has, after terrific intellectual effort and ex tensive prospecting, got right to ' the root of the evil.' The 'evil,' in Moore's opinion, is the absence of liumble defer ence to the opinions and dictates of em ployers on the part of the beastly working clawss. He did not put it exactly that way, but called it. ' want' of respect for law and order.' Wade's law and the em ploying class's order. The ' root ' is ' the over-indulgence of parents nowadays.' This is ambiguous, but Moore's ' further remarks cleared things up some. What he meant was that Australian children are given too much rope. Some of his hear ers had a hazy memory -of having heard that before. Still, they listened respect fully and with increasing attentiveness; probably they had never been Australian children; Then Moore maundered on. 'The average Australian child was in clined to be precoci...
