PEACE OR REVOLUTION ? [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 2 November 1918

[?] There are many reasons for the belief that the war will soon be over. In the first place,' winter is fast 'approaching1 in' the other hemisphere, and' all the peoples pf every European country, war-wears'; half-starved and famished with the cold, are suffering mental anguish in dread of another war-winter. In the second-place, all the belligerent countries are feeling the economic and financial strain of this colossal conflict, which is using up the material wealth of the world to an ex tent without parallel in human experience. The result is that scores of millions of people are feeling the lack of sufficient food, clothing, and fuel to an almost in tolerable extent. The cost of commodi ties has risen so high that to many thou sands they are Unobtainable in sufficient quantities to sustain life, and the very old, the young and the weak are literally dying of starvation, while millions more are feeling the pinch _pf hunger, and the ever-present dread of worse to follow. It canno...

'Labor -may be likened to a man who, as he carries home his earnings, is way laid by a series of robbers.

THE "NATIONALISTS" AT LOGGERHEADS. AND THE "HERALD'S" WAIL ALSO THAT PAPER'S BELATED ADMISSIONS. BRIGHT PROSPECTS FOR HONEST ELECTORS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 2 November 1918

LOGGERHEADS. \ AND THE 'HERALD# WAlL £ ALSO THAT PAPER'S BELATED ADMISSIONS. BRIGHT PROSPECTS FOR HONEST ELECTORS. The 'Nationalists' in the New South Wales' Parliament must in these days he leading something of a cat-and-dog life. Whatever artificial unity originally ex isted among the 'fortuitous or casual con* course of atoms,' which won to power by profuse political lying and misrepresen tation, they are to-day pretty clearly forming different combinations. The re cent party ballot regarding proposed elec toral reform made that 'fact pretty ob vious. The more recent differences over the question of controlling the meat trade are further open evidence. And the press god-mother of the 'Win- the-War' Government is moved to wail - ings and rebukes; also to amusing want of logic and quaint disregard for gram mar. . After touching on the conditions of 1014, 'S. M. Herald' continues: 'Since that time we have insisted that there should be no parties during: the war. . . . The Australian...

VIEWS OF SIR JOSEPH CARRUTHERS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 2 November 1918

VIEWS OF SIR JOSEPH ' CARRUTHERS. The Hon. Sir Joseph Carruthers; I am taking a side in this case which I know may not commend itself to many hon. members, perhaps the majority ' of this House, who like myself are in favor of what is termed the loyal section of the community. I have no sympathy what ever with those to whom my hon. friend the Solicitor-General ? referred who are charging the Government with introduc ing ,this bill for some* political purpose. I appreciate, too, the sincerity^ of Mr. Hol man, the Premier, in this matter. There was during the course, of the debate in the other place an interchange of person alities quite aside from the merits of the bill, and disfiguring to public life. I say at once that I have been a supporter of the National Government, that I have been a supporter of Mr. Holman since he has been at the head of that Government, and I appreciate what, he* has done in the interests .of the welfare of the State. I can only..- regret that he has introdu...

FREEDOM AND PERSECUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 9 November 1918

FREEDOM AND PERSECUTION, j It is not a disgrace to have been in , prison. The bird of freedom has always been a jail -bird. In aU great crises the place to look for the redeemers of the race : is not in the palaces of religion or the palaces of justice, but in the prison cells or on the road thereto. Moses had to flee from the Egyptians. Socrates died in a cell. Christ was made a. convict because ' he was a friend of the people, r*\i was ? crucified as the first preacher of demo cracy. Washington and Jefferson had so much contempt of court that they would have been hanged if they could have been caught. In the history of progress tyranny, . has always been the turnkey, liberty al- i always the convict.

LABOR. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 9 November 1918

LABOR. I've builded your ships and your railroads. I've worked In your factories and mines, I've builded the roads you ride- on, fve crushed the ripe grape for your wines. I've worked late at night on your garments, I gathered the grain for your bread, I built the fine house that you live in, I printed the books you have read. 30: I've linked two great oceans together, I've spanned your rivers with steel, I built your towering skyscrapers. And also your automobile. Fve gone out to wrecked ships in the life boats. When the storm loudly cried. for its prey, I've guarded your home from marauders, I have turned the night into day. Wherever there's progress you'll find me, Without me the world could not live; And yet you would seek to destroy me With the meagre pittance you give. * To-day you may grind me In slavery, Tou may dictate to me from the throne; But to-morrow I throw off my fetters, - And am ready to claim what I own. I am master, of field and of factory, I ani mighty and you a...

CANADWN TRADE UNIONISM BIG INCREASE IN MEMBERS. ATTITUDE ON CONSCRIPTION. ? . \ ' '*? The latest official report of. the Can adian Labor organisations shows a re markable increase both in membership and activity of the Canadian Trades Unions, which seem to indicate that the Canadian workers intend in the future to remove the stigma at present attached to that country of being the worst organ ised class of workers in the modern in dustrial world. The figures herewith quoted are taken from the annual report on 'Labor Organ isation in Canada' for the year 1917, pub lished by the Government Department of Labor, Canada. For the year 1917 nearly all the more important' trade union organ isations operating in Canada, show sub stantial gains in membership, the increase for 20 organisations being 30,720. The total membership in Canada at the close of the year for all classes of trade unions was 204,630, comprised in 1974 branch unions, a total increase for the year of 44,223 in membership, a...

VERSES BY ROBERT BUCHANAN. IF I WERE A GOD LIKE YOU. If I were a God like you, and you were a man like me. If from a throne omnipotent I ruled all things that be, Tidings of light and love I'd send as far as thought could fly. And one great hymn of happiness should sound from sky to sky, And on your brow my gentle hand should shed the saving dew,. If you were a man like me, and \ were a God like you. If I were a God like you, and you were a man like me, And in the dark you prayed and wept and and I could hear and see, The sorrow of your broken heart would darken all my day, And never peace or prjde were mine till it was smiled away; I'd clear my Heaven above your head till it was bright and blue, If you were a man like me, and I were a God like you. If I were a God like you, and you were a man uxe me, Small need for those my might had made to bend the suppliant knee; Td light no light in yonder Heaven to fade and disappear, Td break no promise to the Soul, yet keep it to the ear!

THE BOLSHEVIKS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 9 November 1918

THE BOLSHEVIKS. I treat with great reserve the rumor that Miliukoff and the leaders of the Cadet Right have come to an agreement with the Germans, though it ia not tin impossibility. I know Miliukoff, and though 'his Imperialism— amounting al most to Pan-Slavism — makes him a dan gerous friend of ours, and though some of his colleagues are far more German than British or democratic in their senti ments, and would associate themselves with the German Militarists rather than with Russian Socialists, I doubt if the time has come for them to show their hands. .But the drift and the. danger are there, and the only thing that can be said with assurance is that our present Go vernment will avoid neither the one nor die other. Meanwhile, we seek to obscure the disastrous effects of our policy to wards Russia by accusing the present Government there of being German tools.
