The vice-president congratulated the members on the good prospects for the coming season, though, according to ad vices from London, it seemed «that they must be prepared for a lower price for their wool. The A.W.U. Claims. 'Yet, in the face of this probability,' Mr. Oakden continued. ' the Australian Workers' Union are making fresh de mands upon pastoralists, involving ah immense additional expenditure. These demands include not only heavy increases of rates, but also' the limitation .of shed hands' work and the imposition of many harassing conditions.

HOW WE BEAT M'PHERSON. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 13 July 1910

HOW WE BEAT M'PKERSON. Out West late in the eighties I waa I shearing at a station, I .And my penmate was- old 'Gately'— a I most notable hard .case — I Who, between his jokes and laughter, I would hold a conversation I With. another hard-shelled shearer, who 'was known as Jimmy Brace. ' That season sheep were very poor, and musrterers had trouble To 'bring the ??flocks . in fast enough to keep the hands at work, For each man could shear his hundred, and some well nearly double; I was drummer at the century, and was called the Sudden Jerk. The board was square and roomy, and the boss (we'll call McPherson) Was a bustling kind of super, and per haps his greatest fault I Was the. vay he tried to- keep us back with threatening and cursing; . ?? Had we deeded l?im not one of us would earn our grain of salt.

SHEARERS' HUT AS LECTURE HALL. A UNIVERSITY MOVEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 13 July 1910

SHEARERS' HUT AS LECTURE HALL A UNIVERSITY MOVEMENT. The University Extension Board at Sydney, looking round to see where~it can put in some beneficial' work, has hit on the idea of sending lecturers to the stations during shearing time. Our ex perience of the -board's work in Sydney, at the Trades Hall and elsewhere, leads us to at once express the opinion that the lecturei's will be gladly welcomed and that their work will be. appreciated. At present the idea is that the lecturer should stay at a station for a' week, arid deliver three lectures in the evenings. The subjects will be chosen by the shear ers from a number which dach lecturer will be prepared to . deliver, and will in1 elude . lectures o'n agricultural . subjects, veterinary science, health, and hygiene. The expense, if if is not borne by the; shed or the station where lectures -are delivered, will be met by the board— tins by way of a beginning, and in the hope that those concerned will see that the work has value, a...

THE P.U. POW-WOW. ? The pastoralists of N.S.W. have held ?' their annual confab; . and, as usual, have .; vented their annual grumble on the wages ?paid to shearers arid shed hands. Fur ther, ^they ..-. declare that ., they intend to move to have those munificent . wages reduced. But the A.W.U. has not. been idle during the past three years; and ' the pastoralists will find themstelyes check mated when the little game is played ber fore the Arbitration Court. ? ? ?? ? 1 : * ' The vice-president complained that the increases demanded would amount to in terest at 5 per. cent, on; £30,000,0000. It Is well for trie pastoralists* that they can talk so airily in millions, and it seem ingly hurts that the workers who build up this capital should claim the right to a small percentage of it. It is astonishing how a foolish phrase - passes almost as indisputable truth. Take, for instance, the phrase that 'the shearer Is the best-paid worker in Australia.' ?Even city Trade Unionists repeat thi...

THE POSITION IN HEW ZEALAND. Mr. M. Laracy, General Secretary of. the New Zealand Shearers and Woolshed Em ployees' Association, writes:— The position here is.' still 'unchanged.' I know :??? of no men engaging under the £1 per 100, and, in fact, I know of no employers who are Offering less. But men should be careful . in making engagements to have a clear; understanding that thV price for shear ing is to be £1 per 100.' The shed hands; case: (Canterbury), comes before the Conciliation Council on.1 Juiy 27, at Timani.

JOIN THE RURAL WORKERS' UMION.

TASMANIA^ BRANCH. '- Wintor has set in with a vengeance, and all tlie low-lying districts in Tas mania, have been flooded, the rivci's being unable to cope with the rain. On the East Coast lambing has started, and the cold, wet weather is playing havoc with the ewes, as well as the young lambs; Farmers who have not been lortunate enough, to get their sowing done early find it impossible to get on the land, and fear by the time the land is dry enough to work the season will be too far ad vanced to put seed in the ground. One of our large landholders 'in the Ouse district is going to. build new ac commodation for his employees this sea son, and sent, along to the A.W.U. office, for information as, to . air space, etc., which was pi'omptly supplied.

THE LABOR DAILY HOW SHALL IT BE OWNED? [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 13 July 1910

THE LABOR DAILY HOW SHALL IT BE OWNED? Some members have been inquiring ?whether it is intended that the proposed Labor Daily' shall be based upon shares issued to individuals or .whether 'it shall be Union-owned and controlled. The answer is that it will be Union - owned and controlled. To give the other Unions a chance to come in it is imperative that the scheme 'shall be based upon company lines. Com pany law requires that a certain number of persons shall join together to enable a company to be formed in the first in stance. To comply with this law it has been decided that a certain number of approved persons may come in as founda tion members. The total amount of cash .they may pay in only amounts to £100 out of a total, pf. £100,000, and the voting power is based. on the money. paid in, so that it should be clear they will not have the slightest power to influence the con trol which the Unions, for whom are ' reserved the £99,900 worth of shares, will ha\;£ over the paper.

RAILWAYS AND TRAMWAYS AWARD. TWO CLAUSES ULTRA VIRES. Judge Heydon on Men's Holidays. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 14 July 1910

RAILWAYS AND TRAMWAYS AWARD. TWO CLAUSES ULTRA VIRES. Judge Heydon on Men's Holidays. Some time ago the N.S.W. Railway Commissioners applied to the Industrial Court for leave to appeal against two clauses of the award of the Railways and Tramways Wages Board, judgment on which was delivered last week by Judge Heydon. The . first clause was No. 14. which provided that after 20 years' ser vice a porter snouid, on the certificate of - the railwa}' medical officer, be entitled to ^ one month's leave on full pay. Regarding this, his Honor said that neither the court nor any board liad any real juris diction to compel either side to make a present to the other. Leave to appeal against clause 14 must, therefore, be up held, and as the case had already been fully argued, he would amend the award by striking out that clause. The second clause to which objection was taken was No. 15, which provided that a porter on the permanent staff, when - compulsorily retired through no fault of his own, ...
