WAR WEEDS AND BLOSSOMS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 7 June 1919

WAR WEEDS AND BLO88OMS. Strange weeds and flowers, .unknown in France for sixty years or more, are bloom ing from the battle-torn soil. The shells ploughed very deep and old seeds have been brought' up to the surface. The same is true in a larger and deeper sense of the war's work. It has brought **i» *?-§£ strange weeds to grow in the fertile hu- *?&§ man soil. Something of the callous in-j'^ difference which marked the years when.';l|| the sword was always ready to leap from'^J| the scabbard is here and there to bjp seen, aw something of strutting . military pride ln_il| the .thing that matters least, sometbing^^ of menace and boast that might well haYe^li been buried forever under the wreckage *||| and waste of the agjes.

HOW TO REACH THE PROFITEER. THE WAR DEBT AND THE COST OF LIVING.—A WAY TO EASE THE BURDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 7 June 1919

HOW TO REACH THE PROFITEER. THE WAR DEBT AND THE COST OF UVING.-A WAY TO EASE THE BURDEN. : ' . ? — if.:- ? i Very shortly we will be facing our war indebtedness and our financial position generally, and while prices ere soaring higher and higher, and in consequence the cost of living reaching a point unbearable, not only to the poorer .section, but to all those not classed as rich, we should seek the next step to ease the burden. The finances of every country have been revolutionised. Men talk in thousands of millions who before the war scarcely spoke of hundreds of millions, and now that the slaugh ter is over and peace is before us, one of the problems resulting from the war and directly and intimately af fecting the people in their daily lives, not only in this generation, but also in the next, will be that dealing with the National Debt. ' This problem is not nierety of na tional, but of international, signifi cance, and when peace comes it will be the burning question of the h...

A.L.P. State Conference. What promises to be an intensely in teresting and, possibly, momentous con ference of the Labor Movement in this State will open in the Trades Halt, Syd ney {Room 27), on Saturday next, June 7, at half-past two in the afternoon. Having been postponed from Easter owing to the influenza restrictions, It is possible that some country branches may find it Impossible to get delegates with sufficient time to attend, but there is no doubt of the gathering being suffici ently large to be lairly representative of the Movement. : As the Special Interstate Conference, representing all Australia, will meet is Sydney immediately after the State Con ference concludes, the determinations of the State body will be of great import ance so far as they may tend to affect die decisions of the supreme body.

THE LIVING WAGE AND RACE SUICIDE. To the Editor, "Labor News." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 7 June 1919

THE LIVING WAGE AND RACE SUICIDE. To the Editor, 'Labor News;' Sir, — I read with pleasure your article, 'Minimum Wage and Hace Suicide.' I have looked upon the fixing of a minimum wage based on a family of four as a re flection on our legislation. In addition to the bad effects men tioned in your article as a result of this short-sighted policy, we have the lives of many young wives ruined by attempting to limit their families. This is not to be wondered at, the parents realising that to bring children into this world, and then to be informed by our learned judges that only two of those, children can be provided for, is quite a reasonable excuse. No doubt this small family allowance prevents many who .would marry under reasonable conditions from entering married life. How such an -outrageous system should exist in our country without protest from all those disguised clergy who raved against the decrease of our birth rate a short time ago is beyond reason. I placed this matter sever...

On the Verandah THESE LITTLE SOULS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 7 June 1919

tyMMfemditB THESE LITTLE SOULS. t The Dream-child sang all day in the ?Woman's soul and at night, when the Man came home from work and the two sat by the fireside, she saw it In . the dancing shadows and heard its voice sing ing like a far-away brook in Fairyland. Sometimes, when the Man was away at work, she tr.lked to it and shyly she would tell him when he kissed her at night that it had learned to walk that day or had made its little mouth into a word and the word was his name. The Man ever bold tender arms about the Woman. .Sosne day, it seemed to them both, the Dream-child would come home and they would be childless no more. It was that thought which always brought the tears to the Woman's eyes; but the Man wiped them away, and felt then how near the Dream-child was. Through all- the years they were childless, but the Dream-child grew into their lives until it took posses sion of their souls, and even the angels of Heaven scarcely lmew whether the Man and Woman were childless,...

THE LASHIONAL PARTY. To the Editor, "Labor News." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 7 June 1919

THE LASHIONAL PARTY. To the Editor, 'Labor News.' Sir, — A few weeks ago when the 'Labor News' was dealing with the flogging of the Tingira boys it referred to the Na tionalists as the Lashional Party. As that tantalising practice of flogging has been abolished as a. result of the out cry of horror then raised, the term Lash ioiial has fallen into disuse. In my opinion the term being so apt and expressive should be applied to the enemies of Labor at every opportunity. It should not be confined to the Tingira incident alone, for they have been applying the economic lash to the backs of the laboring classes ever since they assumed- the reins of office as a result of their cry of Winthe War. Tea, they meant to win the war, but it was the class war they meant. Can we forget the strike lash, or that lash from behind — Holman's Secret Memorandum? r ? What of the others? Why one would need' a catalogue to state them. Laborites will be partners in the guilt of the tyrannies perpetrated by t...

A Daughter Letter Dear Mother.— [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 7 June 1919

:&'JMkik Dear Mother, — . How people object to hearing their own words echoed from other lips! There was an American woman, a Miss Whittaker, here a little while ago, who was introduced into the very best Tory circles and heard the bitter condemnation of all things Aus tralian which is the small-talk of the sort of people the 'Sydney Morning .Herald' calls 'right thinking.' These people all try to be 'so English, don't-you-know,' and profess to despise all we are and all we do. Miss Whittaker, who wasn't very clever nor capable of seeing very clearly, just took it all in like a phonograph, and has been printing what she heard in American newspapers. The Tories are quite alarmed and are making no end of fuss about it. Why, it might spoil trade with the United States! The people there might get a false opinion of us — almost as false an opinion as the Tories have themselves. . , One thing Miss Whittaker said has given special annoyance. She declared that the workers of Austral...

NATIONALISATION OF INCREMENTS. To the Editor, "Labor News." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 7 June 1919

NATIONALISATION OF INCREMENTS. To the Editor, 'Jkabor News.' - .; Sir, — The 'Labor News,'- I feel sure, does not desire to fill its columns with a controversy' on a dead issue, Le.; the single, tax. I do not mean any. disrespect to Mr. Huie, whose consistency and persistency are worthy of a better cause. It was the Labor Movement which killed the single tax in Australia, and it certainly will never revive it. Nothing the critics of my proposal have said shake my conten tion that a tax on future increments (or even the nationalisation of the whole) is perfectly just and practicable and free from the element of injustice to honest investors, large or small.

To the Editor, "Labor News." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 7 June 1919

To the Editor, 'Labor News.' Sir, — Will you kindly grant me space to ceply to certain misrepresentations ap pearing in your issue of May 10 by your Kandos correspondent, which have been brought under my notice. Your correspondent, in reporting the proceedings of a public meeting of resi dents held on Sunday, May 4, for the purpose of taking precautions against the influenza epidemic, misrepresents the miners by endeavoring to place the re sponsibility of certain resolutions passed at that meeting upon the shoulders of the miners, but why they should accept the responsibility of resolutions passed at a public meeting baffles comprehension. The matter to which I take exception is the^unfair manner in which your corres pondent attempts to discredit the miners in the minds of the public. Your correspondent refers to the miners as acting the catspaw of the bosses and of haying more wishbone than backbone with his tirade of insults, and concludes by resurrecting that old and worn-out bog...

A Labor College. A LONG- WANTED INSTITUTION. The Sydney Labor Council, after dis cussion, unanimously approved the estab lishment in Sydney of a Labor college for ' the education of Labor men and women whose brief school days are long past and for the better training of the young who are to be Labor's future champions. Mr. Earaman, a comrade from Mel bourne, who was one of the originators, along with Maurice Blackburn and a few others, in establishing the Labor college in that city, gave an interesting account of the methods adopted and the progress made. ?The Executive of the Labor Council submitted a series of proposals setting forth the proposed scope of the institution and the methods for financing the lec tures and classes. A working committee has been formed to put the matter before all Trade Unions, affiliated and otherwise, and already most gratifying promises of support have been promised from various quarters. In this connection it may be noted that such of the newspapers ...

Christian Brothers' Jubilee. ART UNION POSTPONED. The drawing of the art union conducted by the Christian Brothers in connection with their Golden Jubilee Bazaar has been postponed until September 30. This jhange, which has been forced upon the Christian Brothers as a consequence of the relentless influenza outbreak, will be welcome news to all, especially to those nany friends of the Brothers whose suc ;ess in life is especially traceable to the nfluence of the Brothers at school. . From the educational or national stand point, the Brothers' appeal should strike ?esponsive chords in the hearts of all sec ions of the community. Besides render Ing a great service to the State by im parting secular instruction to Australian youths, they add that precious quality of joodness which makes for true citizenship.
