TEAMS AND PROCESSIONS. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Daily Herald — 18 March 1910
TEAMS AND PROCESSIONS. To the Editor. Sir—By publishing this letter of pro test, you will be voicing the opinion, not of a few, but thousands, I was stand ing viewing the procession at the inter section of King William street and Run die street yesterday (St. Patrick'^ Day), and was utterly disgusted to see the trains dashing through the ranks of the procession, to the danger of men, women, and children, more especially the latter. Why these trams could not have remain ed stationary for half an hour I fail to see. The procession only took half an hour to pass a given point, and the thou sands of citizens have a perfect right to have sucli a concession, and .not have their procession spoiled by trams run ning through their lines. I understand the Eight Hours' procession was spoiled the same way. and if such is the case I hope the Eight Hours' committee will enter their emphatic protest, and have the trams stopped during the procession. And I sincerely hope that if lam in this city ne...
POLITICAL PERSECUTION. DISHONORABLE TACTICS. [Newspaper Article] — Daily Herald — 18 March 1910
POLITICAL PERSECUTION. DISHONORABLE TACTICS. The unscrupulous employer—and, un fortunately, lie is to be frund in every State'—resorts to numerous devices, with tbe 'bject of preventing jiis employes from taking .in active part in matters' of personal of public interest, when not exacUy in his master's service. We have hear! of the employer -ho declined to allow his workmen to sm> "&lt;■ during the" world Jg hours, stating that Thile the men were working for him he was entitled to •'■every breath in their body," and there fore itere was none'"left > ith which to puff ne fumes of nicotine, foueh an em ploy -r may be regarded . contemptible, but the employer that is I-serving of the utmost condemnation is surely the man who, by various means, intimidates his workmen—especially at election times. Sometimes, too, when an employe, who wishes, outside of liis work ing hours, to take part in or to hold positions of a social 01 public char acter the objects of which are to ben...
FINANCIAL AGREEMENT. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Daily Herald — 18 March 1910
FINANCIAL AGKEEMEKT. To the Editor. Sir—I wrote a letter to the "Register" a few dayo ago on the financial agree ment. They did not publish it, but it made them bite back in a leader of the 16th iost. I would lite yon to put before your readers the point I gave them They stated that "the power that puts it into the Constitution, can take it out," but I say how? . A referendum must be granted by a constitutional majority of the Federal Parliament, and I pointed out that the Young Australia National Partj' presented a petition signed by no less than 53,000 doctors praying for a referendum on the question of onifica- j lion, but it was not even allowed to go be-'I fore . the House. What possible hope have the people of taking the financial agreement out of the Constitution if the Government of the day or houses should be hostile. If are had the initiative to gether with the referendum, it would be differeut, but as we have not I ask your readers to think twice and think long before the...

OVERWORKED RAILWAY EMPLOYES. To the Editor. Sir—In your issue of the ttth insfc, ' under the heading o£ "Eightpence half penny an hour," you make a very oppor- 4 tune comment on the low pay offered by - the Railways JJepartment to » night watchman. This is not, the only? posi- - tion In the railways at wliich a low wage is paid. Take, for instance, porterswork- , ing oin the Gladstone, v-iysial Brook, and rtiinesTxOwn stations. They have to woii 9j hours for' ?/, and the w«rk is most % continuous and responsible, because these • stations are not worked with interlocking , gear in an up-to-date fashion. Shunting, signalling in trains, office work, and heavy goods shed work is their lot. Then also about every second or third week they Tiave lo take their turn at night duty, sometimes for 10 or jJ£ hours all night, i On this shift there is "illy one porter to } look alter the whole station work, issue#j tickets, attend to the block bells, &lt;5o the j necessary shunting /which ...

On Thursday morning the more active participants in the day's (proceedings were busily engaged at an | ; early hour completing the arrangements for the procession and sports, and it, must have gladdened their hearts, as it did those of thousands of spectators, to see ! that a clear, bright sunrise forecasted a delightful day.
