The Griffilwraith. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 28 January 1893

The Griffllwraith. We saw the deficit increase Whiie fat years shook with laughter ? We heard the squatters cry ' Police !' And marked what followed after ; ? We watched the working man grou- thin— The syndicator hearty ; We saw the curses nutter in, And knew the Blunder Party. We see Lucinda trips take place With coals the country pays for ; The great1 rob arbitration case We watch and count the days for ; ' The lawyer feeds, |mor Queensland bleeds Like pigeons ac eGarte ; We see the crop, we saw the see is, And know the Plunder Party. O, if there yet remain a spark Of honesty within us, 1 If brazen perfidy and dark I Corruption cavnot win us, I The huckster of our votes- will find, I Who sold us in the mart, he ? 1 Can never sell a people's mind 1 And his the Under Party.

THE EDITORIAL MILL. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 28 January 1893

THE EDITORIAL MILL Glassey hit the nail on the head when he told the small farmers of Kenmore the -?ther day that if the Labour Party were returned to power they oould not make as great a mess as the two so-called great parties of the State had made. In a sense of course it depends upon tha rtoint of view from which one looks at things. In all countries the workers are in a vast majority. In this country the majority is supposed to rule. The workers' point of view is therefore theoretically, and perhaps constitutionally the only one that counts ; and certainly from the workers point of view it would be a sheer impossi bility to subject the country to a more shameless course of misgovtrnment than the last few years have witnessed. We can tbeoriBe as much as we like, and the murawe theorise the more obvious it is . that * radical change in the administration of affairs oould only be a change for the better. In this instance, however, we have something more than theory to build upon. W...

But the notion that between Camp bell and Fitzgerald there lies bo much as a reasonable comparison is in itself suffi ciently alarming. Mr. Fitzgerald is what without any disrespect may be called a 'mongrel' Labour man. When he eon tested the Bulimba election against J. R. Dickson there was some reason in supporting him. He came forward as a Radical in oppo sition to a man whose interests were notori ously Conservative ; and if only to put Dickson out of Parliaments it ^as-thought worth while to try to put Fi...

Personal experiences in the sheds, on the mines, or at sea are often of more general interest than those to whom they occur are apt to imagine.

One of the greatest public meetings ever held in Toowoomba took place on Wednes day, Jan. 25th, in the Assembly Hoonjs, under the auspiceB of the Workers' Political Association. Mr. Glassey was to deliver an address on the present political situation. Business was to start at 8 p.m., but long before that hour it was impossible to gain admission. ^Fhe body of the hall is capable of holding 800 and the gallery 150. Both parts were literally packed. The Mayor (Mr. Fogarty) presided. Amongst those on the platform was Mr. Martin, late of St. Helena, to whom a very hearty wel come was accorded. He emphatically denied that the cause of the depres sion was due to the late strike or the action of the Labour Party. He asked those present to remember their mates still in gaol, and promised that when they came out— without begging for mercy— they would be stauneher unionists than ever.
