ROUND THE SHOWS "THE SQUAW MAN." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 7 June 1919

f round ?m sjrairt (By JAKE SIDDONS.) ; ;^ ' : ?? 'THE SQUAW MAN.' ? Allan Wilkie, who appeared as the young captain In 'The Squaw Man,' re viyed at the -Theatre Royal on Saturday night, while ^ failing to please his audi ence as well as ;the; original hero, Charles iWaldron, nevertheless gave a Stirling ?- Jjerformance, ?-' 'Wilkie's elocutionary ? methods are liable to annoy one at times, as the falling away- of his supporting star's voice does; but, otherwise, both lie and^Miss Hunter-Watts have sufficient . dramatic force to carry a season through. As Nat-U-Ritch, Miss Hunter- Watts was quietly forceful. ? Her willowy figure1 lent charm to the part. The support was generally good. Messrs. Ha'rcourt and fteville. as the Indian chief and interpre ter, gave exceptionally good .perform ances; and little Nancy Stewart, as Hal, was a delight. Next Saturday 'The Sign of the' Cross' is to be revived. Theatre goers will probably associate this with Maude Jeffries and Julius Knight, Wil J...

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER PUBLIC LIBRARY OF N.S.W. Corner Bent and Macquarie streets. SOME INTERESTING BOOKS. CRAPSEY, A. S.: "RISE OF THE WORKING CLASS." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 7 June 1919

mmmSBSbsm PUBLIC LIBRARY OF N.S.W. Corner Bent and Macquarie streets.' SOME INTERESTING BOOKS. .CRAPSEY, A. S.: 'RISE OF THE WORKING CLASS.' The author considers that the two most ' significant of the social changes of to day are the destruction of the family as the industrial unit and the rise of the working class, and that these two all important- changes make the continuance of the old order impossible and compel a reorganisation of society. We are even now, he says, in the control of a 'revolu- tion far more reaching in its consequences than any that has occurred since the passage of the higher races of men from barbarism to civilisation.' In this work the effort is made to pre ' sent these two salient facts of present history, i.e., the dissolution of the family and the rise of the working class, so that J.he reader can fully grasp their import and regulate his thinking upon the con sequent reorganisation in accordance with these facts. The first chapters present a quick sur ve...

From an Address Delivered Before the Working Men's Institute at Camberwell. For observe what the real fact is re specting loans to foreign military Govern ments, and how strange it is. If your little boy came to you to ask for money to -spend in squibs and crackers you would think twice before you gave it to him, and you would have some idea that it was wasted when you saw it fly off in fireworks, even though he did no mischief with it But the Russian children and the Austrian children come to you, bor rowing money, not to spend in innocent squibs, but in cartridges and bayonets to attack you in India with, and to keep down all noble life in Italy with, and to murder Polish women ^nd children with; and that you will give at once, because they pay yotf interest for it. Now, in order to pay you that interest, they must tax every working peasant in their do minions; and on that work you live.

War's Aftermath. THE WORLD'S GRIM HERITAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 7 June 1919

War's Aftermath. THE WORLD'S GRIM HERITAGE. ~The wars of the ? Romaii Empire, con- j tinned through centuries, wiped out the! flower of the race, and the result is seen j to-day in the Italian people, descendants of the old Romans, foreshortened by a span as compared with their far distant forebears. The Napoleonic wars, with their years of martial murder, with their gigantic | sacrifice of the young men of the coun i try. left France with a race that was I inches lower, still is inches lower, than the race of Frenchmen of the eighteenth century. ? Dr. Saleeby has scientifically examined the facts and given the results, and his investigations and statements are accepted unchallenged. ? But the wars of the past were as child's play to the war that now awaits its formal conclusion. They were mere bouts of fisticuffs, 'push' brawls, to the titanic holocaust that raged over Europe from mid 1914 to the end of 191S. In the wars and battles of the past there were death and filth and outrag...

Extremists and Extremism.

What rot! The 'Mail' is either a de liberate liar or an absolute ignoramus. ; Every one at all prominently associated with the building up*of the great Trades Union organisations and the Labor Party in this country, as in all other countries where approximations thereto are in existence, was an 'extremist', in his or her day, and Avas so branded by the 'Daily Mail' class of paper and the em ployers and their political henchmen and ?mouthpieces.

At one country railway refreshment room ran by the Commissioners, the lady in charge gets the enormous salary of 29/- per week and lodgings. In return for this munificent salary she not only has to prepare the menu for passengers' break fasts; she has also to look after the quar ters occupied by the staff. Further, as the supplies mostly come from Sydney, in cluding half carcases of meat, she has to cut this up into joints, and act generally-: as butcher, housemaid, and maid of all work.

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

^n ? — — ? Labor's Battle Cry. To the Editor, 'Labor News.' Sir, — I read with much interest the ar ticle by C.H.L. in your issue of the 24th ultimo on the above subject, and am of opinion that ht3 arguments are sound. No matter what segment of the political horizon we scan we find the great ques tion of finance overshadowing all others. The war has entailed immense financial responsibilities, and they must be met by the people best able to pay, and particu larly by those who unscrupulously pro fited and still profit by the war. The battle as to 'who pays the piper' must be fought on either the floor of Parliament or on the public platform bet ween, the forces of Labor and those of Capital, and this battle cannot be long delayed. It would no doubt suit the National Party to appeal to the country on a multiture of questions, and, with the assistance of the capitalistic press, create such a dust that the main issue would be obscured, and by this method obtain a new lease of power from...

Ore Buying. VI. BISMUTH. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 7 June 1919

Ore Buying. BISMUTH. The two pillars 'which support the Ig noble edifice of commercialism, are: 'Buy cheap; sell dear.' 1 As regards the miner — the producer of jores — it is the first, the 'buy cheap' of Jthe ore-buyer, that affects hh»; and that shark does buy cheap, with an audacity that almost paralyses belief. .Ned Kelly himself could not have done it with more brazen 'effrontery. The stable commercial value to the miner is the productive cost of his ore. But, on the other hand, if the ore-buyer can get taht ore for half its value he gains 100 per cent, on his bargain, and con siders it 'good business.' Circumstances aiigiu. even compel uie iiiuuuuei iu o«u iur jne-quarter the value, then the buyer gains 200 per cent-, and, naturally, calls it 'very jood business.' But even such 'very good business' as this does not satisfy the * greed of that 'gentleman.' -He wants the metals for nothing, and, strange to say, he does get' some of the most valuable at that astonish ing figure. ...
