TASMANIAN ELECTIONS. VICTORY FOR ANTI-LABOR, A SECTARIAN BATTLE. HOBART, June 2. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 14 June 1919

TASMANIA*! EU2CT1ONS. 'VICTORY FOR ANTI- LABOR, A SECTARIAN BATTLE. HOBART, June 2. At time of writing it looks as if the Labor Party will get back from the elec tions with about thirteen seats against their opponents' seventeen. This is the best possible estimate, for a couple of Labor seats are depending on the nar rowest margin imaginable — a margin that may easily disappear altogether in the final allocation of the figures. In Denison the Liberals are only some 270 short of four complete quotas, and there are 350 absent votes to come in. iiiven lr mese aosem voies are uuom equally divided as between parties there is no certainty that Labor will secure three of the six seats, for it is possible that the final adjustment of surpluses and distribution of 'discards' will disclose sufficient ? 'cross-votes' or 'exhaust votes' to upset the precariously-poised balance and tip the scale in favor of the Liberals. Practically the same position obtains in Wilmot, where the margin by which ...

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER. PUBLIC LIBRARY OF N.S.W. Corner Bent and Macquarie streets. BALCH, E. G.: "APPROACHES TO THE GREAT SETTLEMENT." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 14 June 1919

KN9MFDGB®B PGWER PUBLIC LIBRARY OF N.S.W. Corner Bent and Macquarie streets.' 6ALCH, E. G.: 'APPROACHES TO THE GREAT SETTLEMENT.!1 This book gives an interesting account of the first steps towards securing a basis for peace, judged from the American point of view. It covers the period from De cember, 191C, to August of the following year. Being published before the signing of the armistice, the exact text of docu ments was not always available, and the author, was forced to use the version of the daily press. The book is divided into two sections. The first gives the history of peace pro Dosals, with contemporary criticism. It begins with the contents of the German peace note of December, 1916, immediately followed by that of President Wilson, ?which suggested that each belligerent na tion should state their requirements for peace, and offered American participation in a peace league. The American note produced a statement from the Allies as to their war aims. Next the President's a...

HOW TO REACH THE PROFITEER. To the Editor, "Labor News." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 14 June 1919

HOW TO REACH THE PROFITEER. To the Editor, 'Labor News.' Sir,— The article which appeared in the 'Labor News' last week (7/6/'19) under the above heading has been regarded by some people 'as a counter proposal to the suggestion that Labor should adopt as ja battlecry £300 a year tax free, with a graduated tax on all incomes over that Imount. This, certainly, must be incop rect; for the suggestion to make a 'levy pn wealth,' as pointed out in the article, fvas proposed and elaborated in England Ijy Mr. Pethrick Lawrence, in his book, ?ntitled, 'A Levy on Capital.' The idea ?as been taken up by the British Labor Jarty; the Fabian Research Society have ?lso gone into the proposal, and it was ?acluded by that body among a number If suggestions for dealing with the war lebts which were submitted by them to Bie British Chancellor of the Exchequer. ? How it could possibly be imagined that I was an alternative to the 'tax free' wggestion is inconceivable, as the graduT ?ed 'income tax? prop...

"WASTED WHEAT." To the Editor, "Labor News." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 14 June 1919

'WASTED WHEAT.' To the Editor, 'Labor News.' Sir, — Under this heading an evening daily had an article charging the Wheat Board with wasting over four million bushels of 1916-17 wheat. It is about time some more questions were asked on this subject. Here are a few more: Is it a fact— That the Government accountants have been unable to balance either the 1915-16 or the 1916-17 books? That the books of all the pools are in a state of chaos? That there is a huge deficiency? That the accounts of the four pools are so mixed up that they cannot be separ ated? That no one knows what the expenses really have been? That no one knows what the loss is, or will be? ' . That the State Wheat Office has been returning wheat scrip to farmers, which was held against advances^on the ground that they are* worthless as security for debt? That no bank will advance a penny - piece on wheat scrip? That there will be no more dividends on the first two and last pools, and only one more of threepence on the ...

Ore Buying. NATIONALISATION OF MINING. COMMON MINER. VII. OWNERSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 14 June 1919

Ore Buying. VII. OWNERSHIP. ' Said a well-known manager of a molyb aenite-bismuth mine: 'It is not in the production of these bi-metals that we find iifficulty. The real trouble is the get ting of a price anything near that ruling in the overseas markets where our pro 3uct is sold. The middleman constitutes Dur prime difficulty. He gets all the juice, with as much of the rind as he :hooses to take.' Those few sentences clearly express the real difficulty, not only of the bi-metal industry, 'but of all metal production throughout Australia. The nominal owner may be the miner, »r the party, or the company that is working and exploiting the mine — but in reality the middlemen price-fixers, sitting, spider-like, in their city offices, are the unfaltering dividend, reapers. Therefore, ihough not generally considered so, they ire the real owners. Should a mine prove exceptionally rich it may yield enough to give profits to joth sets of owners — the nominal owners in -whose name the mine i...

Titles. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 14 June 1919

Titles. As is usual about this time of the year, the Imperial '? authorities have*' 'scat- tered around. a few 'honors' for 'promin- ent citizens.' Lists are published.of names of people who- for the rest of their lives may, in order to gratify their vanity, place various letters before and after their names. , - ? ? The whole thing is so childish and silly that it would not be worth referring to at a'll but for the fact that it is interesting to note how snobbery and'smallmj.ndedness persist chiefly among those who manage to force their way into the positions of place, power, and pay. It may also be well to point out that the most effective weapon against idiocies of this sort is ridicule, and when a sufficient number of people decide to ridicule it, the silly custom will probably die of shame. As the immortal Tom Paine wrote a' hundred and twenty years ago: 'Titles are but nicknames, and every nickname is a title. / 'The thing is perfectly harmless in itself.but it marks a sort of...

The following extracts taken from an American piper bearing the name 'Re- construction' gives some idea of how the money power in that country is making preparations to further exploit the toiling masses of that country. Let us beware; similar methods ' will be attempted by Capitalism everywhere. The leaders of reaction have lost no time in declaring their interpretation of the meaning of Re-' construction. They have declared war on the President. They have challenged his efforts to restore the Government to the people, and with' the excessive wealth that they possess they say in substance: 'The ^var is over, and we intend to retake the Government for ourselves.
