GRIFFITH AND BOODLE. Donunolation by the Press All Round. THE VOICE OF THE PEOPLE AGAINST HIM. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 4 February 1893

GRIFFITH AND BOODLE. Denunciation by tbe Press All Round. THE VOICE OF THE PEOPLE AGAINST HIM. We do not wish to say anything hard of Sir S. W. Griffith: we have from the beginning supported him and his party, but his fate was in the balance when he was offered the Chief Justiceship ; had he gone to the country who can say but he would have received his dismissal from the political service of the colony. He be trayed his closest colleagues and 'strongest supporters. Reverting to his CairnB oration we read : ' At one time— I do not know whether I ought to be proud or ashamed of it or neither — at one tune I was recognised as the champion of men who -now won't believe a word of mine.' Apd ? these men he would have had to reckon with had he faced the music of the coming general election ; he would have had to account for the betrayal of his party and the sacrifice of his principles. Whether he could satisfactorily account for these feats we shall now never know, but we believe Jhhe voi...

Again the Unemployed Moved. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 11 February 1893

Again the Unemployed Moved. - Unemployed workers m Brisbane two or three daya before the ? flood — faced an 'agitation' against starvation rations and pauperism and, as usual, the Go vernment is criminally indifferent to the conditions that inflict this misery on the people. To be nearer the mark, the conditions are the result of the monstrous mugovernment of the ministerial ' heroes of civilisation' who simply run the oountry in the interest* of the banks and mortgage companies, and nothing that was proposed by the few charitably inclined speakers at the Brisbane Town Hill mating last week will stop it, or prevent it* recurrence with tenfold force eo long as the present system lasts. A committee was appointed consist ing of professional religionists and others to raise a fund which if the deluge hadn't come would at most only provide for 100 men. If £100 & week is subscribed, which is doubtful, after the first spasmodic effort, it was proposed : That no money should be paid...

THE DELUGE AND THE WAY OUT. What We Must Do to be Saved. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 11 February 1893

THE DELUGE AND THE WAY OUT. What We Mnit po to be Saved. 'One touch of nature makes tbe whole world kiu,' and one mighty frown on its tempestuous brow tumbles cities and sweeps entire oommouities from the face of the earth. Herculaneum and Pompeii were sealed up with a sea of boiling lava, and its flourishing citizens— rich in the arts spoilt by latter-day money -grabbing— enrolled with a crroan that has scarce died away though sent up centuries before Western civilisation had started to com pms the earth in its world-wide embrace. But a century ago, with an earthquake and overwhelming tidal wave, Lisbon was passed through the seething waters of a flood, and its inhabitants without a -mefiaentfr^wftraHig wrappedu^febeguggjiag shroud of death. And only three short years have passed since the Johnstown {U.S.A.} inondation and fire gave forth its awful tale of wholesale human suffering and loss of life. Not quite such a terrible calamity, but fearful beyond expression, has this week ov...
