BOXING. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 7 June 1919
BOXING. Albert Lloyd retained the heavy weight ^1 championship of Australia after his con- ' 1 test with George Cook at the Stadium -m 1 Saturday night. The contest was con- | eluded in the fourth round, when Coott M blundered badly by swinging a right iow j| on Lloyd's body. The blow brought Lloyd M to the boards writhing under the ettects 4£ of intense pain, and the verdict was: m Lloyd on a foul. The contest up to tfee J| moment of the accident was a stirring one. 1 and the fans were naturally somewhat S disappointed at the sudden termination ot# 1 what promised to be one. of the most ? strenuous battles seen for many a day.

Presbyterians and President Wilson. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 7 June 1919
Presbyterians and President j Wilson. | Bathetic bit of drivel from the 'Re- ligious' column of the Sydney 'Daily Telegraph' of 3/5/19: 'Dr. Wilbur Chap man,, the evangelist, when speaking in Montreal shortly before he died, related an incident which occurred at a meeting/ of American Presbyterians, at which Pre sident Wilson was informed that the Pics byterian Church was- ready to do any thing he wanted, and' every other Church would do the same. When the menage was delivered to him the President, wifh tears in his eyes, replied, 'Gentlemen, you g ask me what you can do. Maintain the spiritual life of your Church at flood- * tide.' ' . S Though President Wilson's religious Kink \ seems to be more or 1 ;ss abnormal, we see no necessity for his tears in the instancd related. . Wilson, it is evident, -is, like a , great many more who make Pharisaic pro- . fession and parade of their 'Christianity,' ^ like Kaiser Bill in particular, a pious \ fraud.

The Industrial Full Court (Mr. Justice Edmunds and: Judges Rolin and Curlewis op. the Bench) on Wednesday, March 26, gave an important judgment in the case'' of the Gas Employees'' Union' against H.

The judgment of ttyji Coui t, * which was unanimous, stated that the ; union proceeded against McLaren for sub scriptions. The Chief Industrial Magis- J trate dismissed the case, and the union then brou_ght an appeal. The facts weie j that McLaren joined the union when it , J was registered as an industrial union.

The Commonsense of Communism. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 7 June 1919
v^' iphe Commonsense of . . - -'? '-.' ? Communism. ??? ?- Spite of all the horrors and the imbe j* -? cilities of war — the stupid squalid | scramble for plunder now going on at the aJleged Peace Conference — the crimes of ? \ commerce and the brazen impudence of j profiteers, the human race is steadily but f surely moving towards Communism. This at the present moment may seem an in credible statement, but when we get the Wood and mud of the last few years out . of our eyes we shall ' see many things clearly that are hidden from us at pre sent. We have been so deafened by the beat ing of war drums, the yells of ecclesias tical dervishes, and the shrieks of the 'Mad Mullahs' of Imperialism that we have not been able to hear the low, sweet voices of the world's saints and sages. But the era of blood and mud and plun .tler will pass away, and then humanity in the mass will be able once again to take a sane view of the basic facts of human life and history.

The Re-Birth of Russia. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 7 June 1919
The Re-Birth of Russia. The Russian people are patient and brave. They have an idealism that we have not, a brotherliness that we have not. In some ways they are nearer in disposi tion than we are to that ultimate Freedom which democracy intends. , ?SVhen the Russians build for Freedom they will not merely copy our Western work! They will fashion, out of their distinctive life, stones of more than one new kind — stones not less precious than our best. No 'Im- perialistic' bias or institution will mis direct their work. ~The Russian people are not Imperialistic. What Russians call 'Imperialism' has not been absent from Russian politics, but the 'Imperialism' of Russia has not been an energy of the na tional character. It has been something engendered within Tsardom — that 'thing apart' — which has now gone for ever. It seems probable that Freedom will make her the voice of the world's common - weaL — C. Hagberg Wright, LL.D., in 'Contemporary Re%'iew,' April, 1918. — ♦

; Postal ^Scandal' RETURNED SOLDIERS DISMISSED.: ABSENTEES ON ANZAC DAY. On April 25 the Deputy Pontmaster General addressed the returned soldiers who were temporary employees in the luncheon room, G.P.O., and informed them that provision would be made to relieve them on Anzac Day. This promise was confirmed by the Acting Prime Minister in a public state ment, to the press on the day prior to the celebrations. A number of employees in the Mail Branch were informed that their shifts had been altered so as to per mit of taking part in the gathering. In other branches the returned soldiers were allowed the full day off. The re turned men were so indignant at their treatment that they held a meeting, and carried a resolution that, in view of the non-fulfilment of the promise given by the Acting Prime Minister, and the discrimina tion between the soldiers employed in the Mail Branch and the other branches of the service, they would take the day off to do honor to their comrades who had m...

The Levelling-Up Question. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 14 June 1919
The Levelling-Up Question. Not long ago a Judge of the Industrial Court had a bit of an argument with the Secretary of a Union about the levelling of the skilled and unskilled worker, and, in conclusion the Judge told the Secretary that he would not allow the 'picker-up boy' to cut into the wages of a skilled worker. An argument between an Industrial Judge and a Union Secretary is of little avail, but the new principle involved has a good deal to do with some of the workers' welfare. As there is a motion to that effect in the agenda of the P.L. Conference now sit ting, and a controversy is bound to oc cur about it, the capitalist press has directly and indirectly alluded to the sub ject. ' One paper, in a leading article, used the old exploded argument, and one other, In a report under the heading of 'Interesting Speeches.' Of course, all this is to give. a clue to the moderate in and out of the Movement how to argue on the new idea. Let us analyse the levelling up— not down — of th...
Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 14 June 1919
Note*. In view of the Nationals, the recent V.R.C. Birthday meeting is of more than passing interest In the York Hurdle. Race, Explorer (11.0) won easily by nearly three lengths from Katwyck.- On this run this son of Kenilworth and Tilga is rather well handicapped in the G.N. Hurdles. Explorer was bred in this State, and, in the ownership of C. S. McPhillamy, won the last race at the Hawkesbury meeting some months back. With Ex plorer out of the~way, Katwyck rather comfortably accounted for the Marl borough Hurdle Race on the second day. In the Hopetoun Steeplechase Sir Prim accounted for The Aisne by a length and a tialf. In the Prince of Wales Steeple chase, on the second day, The Aisne again was beaten into second place, but Lumut was his victor this time, Sir Prim not competing. In the Buckingham Welter Percolator, by Comedy King — Watershoot, going out at 33 to 1, beat the favorite. Froth and Bubble, by half a neck. Over a year ago Percolator won a race at Rand wick in similar ...

? .....:...??. - .- ';-.^ r;vi/-.-. -?-- - ?- ?--?'. — V :! ' (By JANE SriJDONS.) THE SIGN OF THE CROSS. Allan Wilkie's stock season at the Theatre Royal so far has proved so suc cessful that each week has seen an im provement in the size*of the audience. The opening night of 'The Sign of the Cross' saw a packed house, and Allan Wilkie was an imposing Marcus, Sydney has seen a lot of handsome actors as Marcus, but Mr. Wilkie was quite acceptable, and knows how to wear the Roman costume's. Mis:* Hunter- Watts, as Mercia, brought back memories of all the lovely Mercias we have ? had, including Maud Jeffries, the beauty of of all. Mercia is a colorless sort of part, but Miss Hunter-Watts made the Christian . girl very appealing.

FOOTBALL. BLUES WIN THE DOUBLE. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 14 June 1919
FOOTBALL. BLUES WIN THE DOUBLE. Fine weather, together with enormous crowds, greeted the meeting of the New Zealand and New South Wales represen tative footballers. The Rugby League should feel gratified at the size of the crowds that witnessed the games on the Sydney Cricket Ground on Saturday and Monday last. By one or two newspapers, the first tussle was characterised as dis appointing. It must be remembered that the game was a hard one and also that the visitors had had to submit to quarantine regulations in Victoria, which did not enable them, to reach Sydney until Thursday of last week. When it is con sidered 'that the local team was picked from clubs at present playing the best football seen here for some time, and in great fettle, it was necessary .for the sup porters of the code not to expect the best from the visitors.. The game was spec tacular and exciting. The tries scored by the flying Horder will live long 1n the memory of those who witnessed his mag nificent play. Th...

[?] Dear Mother,— [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 14 June 1919
^jftt Dear Mother, — Ruth Law, the American flying woman, is going to make an attempt to cross the Atlantic in an aeroplane. It seems strange to find women prepared to try almost everything that a man will do these days. There is hardly a limit to the daring of some girls in feats of athleticism; and those Russian fighting women, with their closely cropped hair, going right into the thick of the battle, make one think of tales in the old romances. StilL I think a good many of the feats undertaken by women must be a mistake. The open-air occupations in England during war time were very likely all good. That a girl should plough or take tickets on a tram, or dig in a garden, seems well enough as long as the hours and conditions are reasonable; but the big athletic trials in volve a bodily test to which no woman should voluntarily lend herself. I may be old-fashioned, but -I do not think that is woman's true line of progress. No, I think it is really in mental work that we can help the...
V.R.C. Grand Nationals. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 14 June 1919
V.R.C. Grand Nationals. The weights for the V.R.C. Grand Na tional Hurdles and Steeplechase saw the light on Wednesday. The adjustments are on a lower scale than usual for the race over the battens. Snub heads the list with 11.8, and as that weight or over has only twice been successfully handled since 1881 this New Zealand gelding has not been exactly thrown in. Kinlark, who has good form to recommend him, has 21b. less to carry, and at that is well taken care of. The pick of the top weights seems like Lord Nagar at 11.4. He won very easily at Randwick recently with 21b. more, and if started in his best form should account for all those above 10.7. There seems a wide difference of opinion between the V.R.C. and the A.J.C. handi cappers in regard to the merits of Lord Nagar and his stable mate Montauk and Graphone. The former adjuster asks Lord Nagar to concede 191b. to Montauk and a pound more to Graphone, while in the A. J.C. Hurdle Race won by Lord Nagar he was only conceding 21b...
