REFORM NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 13 February 1892
REFORM NOTES In France and England the politicians find themselves forced to recognise the right of labor to a. will in the management of public affairs. The French Premier, De Freycinct, is forced to acknowledge that his government'* tenure of office is conditional upon his retaining* the confidence and sup- ? port of the labor representatives in the Chamber of Deputies. In England the opposition knows that it cannot hope to succeed except it can rally to its support the working-men, while the government realizes that if it loses the labor vote its days are numbered. It is said that Lord Salisbury, realizing this, has determined to give labor representation in the Cabinet, by creating a new portfolio of Minister of Labor. It Avill be Avell with America if the mono- , polists surrender their pri Alleges in season to preArent a social revolution. Prop the heavens Avith justice and they will not fall. Make law the synonym of equity and there f Avill be peace. — Gcovf/o C. Beech er. Ou...

"NOT RESPECTABLE." [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 13 February 1892
'NOT RESPECTABLE' BY MARTHAGUY. I often wonder your fine ladies and re ligious people don't feel ashamed of them selves. Every chance they get they tell us poor girls who have to work for a living that we ought to go to church, and lead virtuous lives, and be respectable ! Respectable and virtuous, forsooth ! It's all very fine for them to talk about virtue, but if they had to work like Ave iuive, fourteen hours a day in the factory for 1 os a Aveek, and pay 1 2s 6d for their board, and live in a stuffy place Avithout a single thing to brighten up the feAV hours we liaAre to spare .from sleep, I don't think they would be Airtuous and respectable any more than most of us are. We don't knoAv any of these goody - goody people who would take us for an occa sional trip down the harbor, to giAre us a chance of breathing the fresh air. And, naturally, Ave Avant to get aAvay out into 'God's -sunshine sometimes, and we long for a sight of the sea — -the great, Avild ocean, which always looks...

Addressing a meeting recently in Wales, Mr Ben Tillett said : ' ' He was not very old either as a teetotaller or anything else, but he had lived long enough to know that the drink traffic was the curse of the country ; lie had lived long enough to know that in his work as a social reformer that one of the greatest obstacles to be removed was the appetite for drink. He believed that if working men and working women were to give up drink they would increase their wages, but, above that, they would improve morally and physically as well, and they would also increase in that spiritual wealth which made a man or woman bend cheer fully to the task on earth, looking beyond to the future of felicity. ... I hate the drink for a thousand reasons. My life was made one of misery, one of want, one of which I felt the sharp pangs of hunger from the age of seven till I was a young man, owing to the drink. It robbed me of a mother's care, and sent me out on the world a waif at the age of seven. Bec...

GENERAL LABORERS UNION OF AU STB AL ASIA. Report of Executive Officers for year endine December 31, 1891. TO THE MEMBERS. Gentlemen, — In submitting this brief review of the progress made during tlie past year, we congratulate you on the measure of success achieved. In the majority of dis tricts the Union is now thoroughly estab lished, whilst in others it has obtained a .footing, and is certain to move forward during the coming year. In judging as to our success, members must remember that Unionism has been spmewhat under a cloud, and was, therefore^ without tlie aid to suc cess which popularity undoubtedly gives. Unionism lias been upon its trial. Members' principles have been tried by the severe fire of adverse conditions. The result has proved that working men see in Unionism a power for good, and, in spite of severe trial, have stood by each other and by Union principles, proving by deeds of noble self-sacrifice that their faith in the ultimate good Avhich unity of purpose and ...

NOTICE TO ADVERTISERS Anyone who Avants to do honest business can adArertise in the ' Hummer.' We have no room for the greedy speculator or mono polist, the quack or the schemer. No paper can run straight for the people and hit every fraud and lie tha t exists Avhich has to depend upon the fa.Aror of its adArer tisers ; and the ' ' Hummer' ' means to be in the fore -front of the Labor .MoArement . while it intends to run honest till it runs doAvn. For these reasons Ave cringe to no one for adArertisements ; but all the same we ask Unionists to support their own paper by patronising those who advertise in it. The ' Hummer' is the only truly coopera tive weekly neAvspaper in Australia, and all profits go toAva.rds its impiwement. The ' Hummer' office is a reeog'nised Union office .« The only one in the Riverina. For terms apply to the MANAGER.

MEETING OF CAPITALISTS AND LANDLORDS, SQUATTERS AND THIEVES. First Robber : A neAV danger is threatening our old-established institutions, and the sacred right of property in land. Second Robber: Speak out, comrade — to Avhat do you allude ? * First Robber : That confounded Hummer is tiwing to inculcate thorns which, if alloAved to spread, Avill lead Avorking men to be lieAre that : they: have ' a, perfect right;J to livo without paying blaclduail, in the shape of rent, to us. Third Robber : Well, that is a inost heinous offence, and is just Avhat I pre dicted Avould be the result of compulsory educa tion. It appears to me that these working men wiH get the notion into their heads that the due reward.. ? of 'every laborer is the full value of what lie produces, and tha't if they get ' one man one Tote' their next move will be to „ assert that the land of every country belongs to the people of that country collectiyely, and not individually , that they . can live by their own exertio...

FOR THE HONOR OF THE FLAG [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 13 February 1892
FOR THE HONOR OF THE FLAG . ? These Australi ail' ctflonies are ' under the British Flag.' The British Li oil, who is an imported article (for the climate won't grow a real indigenous lion) still rears up on his hind legs, and claws hold of every inch of the earth's surface within his reach. He has had, and exercised, the strength ' ' ? c-- and brutality of his kind, and having accumulated more than he can use or ' V '/ govern, his greed is proving*' his ' weakness. The kingdoms and colonies, the forts and islands — 'bought, borrowed, \ or stolen from weaker nations— form : v a hotch-potch medley called the M British Empire, on which they proudly '.g&y 'the sun never sets.'

Jack: ' Well, so they are.' Jim : ' It's all very well for you to skite about liberty and that sort of thing, but I have been reading' up a bit lately; and I find that instead of being free Ave are slaves com pared to what people were. 500 years ago. The only freedom we have is to starve.' Jack : ' How do you make that out ?' Jim : 'Well, you see I got hold of a book called ' Work and Wages for the last 600 Years,' and I find that although the land only yielded eight bushels to the acre, a man could earn enough money in England at that time by working two hours and a -half a day to buy food enough to live on for the day ; or, put it another way— by working 1 5 weeks he could live comfortably for the rest of the year on the wages he earned in that time.'

LOYAL SYMPATHY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 13 February 1892
LOYAL SYMPATHY A Victorian exchange has the following 'Eae, M.P. for Wagga, sat alone in opposi tion to the New South Wales Parliament 'when tlie House was Irving to work up tlie dreadful and pass a wa.sl.iy 1 expression oi condolence' with, the Queen and the Prince and Princess ot'\- ales, because it lias pieaseu Providence to alllict the ' Rile' Family by removing the 'Juke ' of ClArence and Avon dale up to the vicinity of the great white throne. Many papers have seen lit to hurl their wrath upon Rae for his conduct in this particular, but it might strike the' un prejudiced judge that lie had quite as much right to withhold his sympathy from Iler Gracious as had his fellow members to bestow their commiseration and tears, and it is at least something to. his credit that he did not play the hypocrite and pretend to feci awfully cut up about a matter that concerns him very little. The case against Rae is not that he refrained from feelinr/ sympathy, but that he refused to express sym...
