Editor's Letter Box. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 25 February 1893

Editor's Letter Box. Tbuth : We don't know whether ex mayor Watson donated any of the £600 allowance from the ratepayers money to the .Flood Relief Fund. He nor any other mayor should get such allowances, then he wouldn't be able to have high jinks with it or be expected to donate it. The eldest surviving son of Baccarat Neddy, commonly known as Prince George, is captain of an English warship that doesn't carry a chaplain, so the roistering youth fills the bi]l,'and the Pall Mall Gazette solemnly informs its readers that : His favourite hymns appear to be such well known ones as ' Nearer, my Goa, to Thee,' ' O God, our help m ages past.' ' I heard the voice of Jesus say,' 'Jesu, meek and lowly,' 'Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty,' and Keblc's morning and evening hymns. These and others he had been wont in his boyhood to sing at home with his brother and aisterB, to his I mother's accompaniment on the piano ; and therefore to him, as to «o many others of ua, the I

That Vampire Cartoon: A Verdict Against the Government. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 25 February 1893

That Vampire Cartoon: A Verditet Against the Government. The appeal against the fine of £50 in flicted upon the Worker for the publica tion of a cartoon alleged by the authorities to be indecent, was heard by the Full 'Court yesterday (Friday) and resulted in a^ complete triumph f -r the paper and an equally complete and very humiliating de feat of the Government, at whose iaetiga tion the proceedings were taken. Mr. Edwin Lilley, instructed by Mr. Thynne, appeared for the Worker and Mr. Dick son for the Crown. .The case was not argued in all its bearings. The first objection — a technical objection — taken by the Worker to the police magistrate's decision was fatal, and it was not neces sary to go any further into the matter. The judges were against the magistrate from the start, and although the Worker's counsel was thus precluded from entering into the merits of the cartoon itself, the fact that the Full Court, after a long and studious examination of the picture, re frained from...

INDIVIDUALISM AND COMMUNISM. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 25 February 1893

INDIVIDUALISM AND COMMUNISM. It epeaks volumes for the broad catho licity and tolerant spirit of the Queensland Labour ^?arty in -theoretic-matters; whilst evincing its unity in respeot to immediate practical reform, that the late and the present editor of the Wobkbb should have submitted to its readers a friendly state ment, each from his own point of view, upon the rival merits of Individualism- and Communism— two social theories usually considered as 'being at the opposite poles of social greform. Following the usual oourse in this matter the two systems are treated as being mutually exclusive ana destructive of each other. This appears to me a mistake. The position taken by Mazzini — the soundest) thinker that has yet sprung from Modem Europe — appears to me far truer. I believe with him that 'each has torn a fragment from the banner of the future and declared it to be the whole.' It does not seem to me that there Is any necpiwary nontraflint.inn hnftwi^n Individualism and a tru...

Why ! How comes w that im menBQ numbers of men and women are in sufficiently fed and clothed, so eager to find taskmasters, and so driven by them that neither desire is left nor opportunity vetopment of moral or intellectual attri butes? The world has not become barren, and men have not grown weak. We grow twenty blades of grass where our, fore- fathers grew one. A man's necessities are not greater than they were five centuries ago out widened knowledge enables a man to-day to produce twenty times as -much as a man could then.

BANKS AND BOODLE. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 25 February 1893

BANKS AND BOODLE. ? The sworn quarterly returns of the eleven banks (not including the land or lottery banks) doing business in Queens laud, ure truly worth study by all who are interested in watching what they are at pre eentpQweries* to prevent, the wholesale and steadily increasing plunder ot this down trodden country. The marvel is that in tipite of the lontr-nnntin'ied and dr^ftry de pression of trade, the almost universal in solvency t and the degrading poverty which is becoming fiendishly familiar to so many thousands of our workers, this life destroying drain can still be continued and at ever increasing rates. In a recent issue -fe^was shown that inl8'J2 tMB-colqHy~6x~ ported no le«s than £4,189,000 in excess of its imports, no benefit whatever accruing to the producers of the wealth represented by chat enormous amount, and no return of any kind being received by the colony as a whole.

BYSTANDERS' NOTEBOOK [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 25 February 1893

BYSTANDERS' NOTEBOOK — guJer cover of replying to straw oorrea nondents, that are created only for the ^ purpose of knocking them prsT and down again, Tuesday's Cou chloroform, rier artioVe is a laboured and abortive attempt to cloak over the imbecility and utter incapacity of *hn ftnvM-nmeut. First the Q. N. Bank and the Government deposit of two million is glossed over by some allusion bo a State bank and a. lot of stupid twaddle about the issue of paper money. Following that comes a gingerly defence of the fat salaried civil servants; brought up by half a column of senseless chatter on the evils of Government loans— in the abstract : not, of course, on the last one that has actually been floated. But the full force of the chloroform bottle is put onto the demand for a proj-erty and income tax, which the pinny eheet says is 'only another name for ttbberv.' Had it stopped there it would haw been alright, and the Govern ment and property class would have been satisfied, but lest the...

ILLEGAL LAW. What the Indecent Advertisements Act was meant to apply to. Discussion on the Passing of the Bill. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 25 February 1893

ILLEGAL LAW. What the TnHiMtanfe- AdvortUomontg Aot was meant to apply to. Discussion on the Passing of the Bill. In the face of the Government prosecu tion of the Worker, the fine -inflicted by P.M. Pinnock, and the Worker's con tention that the conviction was illegal law, quite apart from the technicalities brought out by Mr. Thynne, to be heard in the Full Court, it is necessary to show exactly what the Indecent Advertisements Act was meant to apply to, and what the legis lators themselves said in passing the bill into law. W. F. Taylor introduced the bill and said T Certain advertisements are declared by the clause to be indecent. I will not read the clause ; it speaks for itself. It is to a certain extent a departure from the Acts I recited, because it defines in dear terms what is meant by the term ' Indecent.' Here, however, is the clause, showing what it defines, taken from Hansard : Any advertisement relating to syphitisi gonorrhoea, nervous debility, or other complaint or ...

THE EDITORIAL MILL. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 25 February 1893

THE DITORIAL MILL So our opponents reckon on making political capital out of the floods. Because in Queensland some men are so mon strously rich that without the smallest self-sacrifice they could hand a cheque for a thousand pounds to the Relief Com mittee, and are in fact putting their names down for here and there an odd hundred. whilst individual workers in the Labour Movement opla only afford to subscribe a few shillings (which they do for the moat part anonymously), the representatives of Law and Order are asserting more loudly than ever that the 'bloated capitalist' u the poor man's friend. Could anything be more abaurd ? Such people have really no right to live in an Age of Reason. Their true plane in history is on the threshold of Civilisation. They belong to an Age of Credulity. Amongst the canals of ancient Egypt, at the festival of Thebes, where the industrious farmer hailed the Dog Star as the harbinger of a plenteous har vest, or some three thousand years later, in the...
