N.S.W. LABOR CONFERENCE. TRIALS OF STRENGTH BETWEEN OPPOSING SECTIONS. PROPOSALS FOR NEW OBJECTIVE AND TO ALTER MODE OF ELECTINQ EXECUTIVE DEFEATED. (Reprinted froiti 'The Australian Worker.')

Social Unrest and the New Social Order. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 14 June 1919
[?] The above topics, are the subjects -& ^ v.-orld-wide discussion just now, -apd the 1 publication of t\.a Australian books dea! ii.g respectively with Social Unrest and the New Social Order should attract' mucli interest in Labor circles. The work on 'The New Social Order' is from the pen of Professor Meredith , Atkinson, of Melbourne, arid is intended to form a text book for the use of students enrolled in the Workers' Educational As sociation. The Professor is to be con gratulated on having definitely broken away from some of the tenets of 'the dis- - mal science' which have for eo long beeu1 accepted as orthodox economic doctrines. As an example of the Professor's' heiesjr private property in land Is described as 'the most harmful, tyrannical and least necessary- of all forms of property.' This indicates a change of heart, Indeed, for time was when for a University Pror fessor to speak other than reverentially of the sacred British institution of free- - hold would hav...
Clear Thought. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 14 June 1919
^?'?' ;':'j: Clear Tb^gfe. ' '.'. '=' ' ' .;-:.: ?!''?'? ?''I' ???-'? 37': -s . ? »? . ????* . .:. This, dissertion on the four 'cracies*- is penned with an aitfi of inducing greater clearness of thought, and more exactness in expression. Forceful writers on political subjects sometimes mar the penetrating power of splendid arguments, and blunt otherwise unanswerable logic to futility by confusing these three terms, 'artistoc- racy,' 'oligarchy,'' 'plutocracy.' Being adapted Greek words, the mean ings do not lie on the surface, as would be the case were they of purely English origin. Therefore, discrimination is neces sary. The simplest and most easily accessible authority is perhaps 'Sullivan's Spelling Book Superceded.' There we find amongst the list of Greek roots: Aristos, the best, the noblest; Oligos, a few; Plutos, wealth; Demos, the people; Cracos, rule, governing pow'er. . Armed with this simple, little, explana tory vocabulary, it is self-evident that: 1. An -Aristocracy (...

An Afttennafh of the Freen^ Agitation.; VANCE MARSHALL ARRESTED. The case' of Paul Freeman has caused ' an outburst of spontaneous Indignation an. ' . the part of the public perhaps previously, unprecedented in this State. So great did the demand become for hie removal from the s.s. Sonoma, on which ship he had been so long marooned, . so unswerving was the popular deter mination to put an end to the hideous stupidity exhibited by a pig-headed mili tary, that the Federal Government was compelled to bend the knee to the in sistency of the demand. But now comes the aftermath. .- On the evening of the 4th instant, at the com pletion of a meeting addressed by Mrs. Adela Pankhurst Walsh, T. J. Smith, M.L.A., and other representative citizens on behalf of the seamen on strike, Vance Marshall, who had acted as chairman, was arrested on a warrant by1 an army of ten detectives and two G.M.P.

EDITORIAL. THE LABOR CAUSE AND THE ELECTORS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 14 June 1919
EDITORIAL. THE LABOR CAUSE AND THE ELECTORS. The Capitalist press is persistently at tempting to utilise the differences be tween Laborites on questions of method to show that a Labor Government would be . a very unsafe body for the average elector to entrust with power. Standing as these newspapers do for a policy of financial drift, Jingo Imperial ism, big military and naval expenditure, and Reactionism generally, they endeavor to retain power in their own bands by magnifying Labor differences. The fact that the alleged Nationalists are at sixes and sevens among themselves cannot be concealed, because some men with influence persist in writing to the press to point out the bungling Incom petence and dishonesty of their own lead ers. The fact, however, remains beyond dis pute, that the Nationalist party has no constructive policy which it dare disclose. The piling up of further taxation, the continued support of the profiteers, and the constant rise in the cost of public services, ...

SANCTUARY. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 14 June 1919
SANCTUARY. I haunt its peace alone. By pools where quiet rushes swing I lie, and hear the young airs sing In low and tender tone A melody of dreams earth-blown From some cool Heaven-spring. And always He is there. Beneath the olive leaves He turns; And, as my woman-spirit yearns To thoughts His chosen share, A flambeau lights my fallen hair, And through the darkness burns. O mystery of Sleep! About that sanctum of the Blest To which I drift from Love's white breast, The spirit waters creep; And, sinking in them far and deep. Fearless as God, I rest. ZORA CROSS. The Sydney police went to considerable trouble last -week-end~to round-up a num ber of two-up players out in the Bondi sandhills. ~ The A.I.F. played this game everywhere, but no John Hop has pluck enough to attempt the. arrest, of the whole army.- .Presumably the police don't know where the principal clubs in Sydney are, otherwise, of course, they would raid these establishments and save the well-to-do citizen from losing a ...

The half-time scores, 17 to nil in favor of Easts, were the result, of, clever passing bouts by Easts' speedy back divi sion. The 'Dales made matters very lively in th£ second spell, and it looked as though they would overrun the Tri colors' total. The tit-bit of the match was Hughes's clever try, when he ran trickily through the Tricolors' backs, and crossed over. 'Waly' Messenger brought down the 'house' with six goals. Final scores: Easts 27; Annandale 12.

BALMAIN STILL UNDEFEATED. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 June 1919
BALMAIN STILL UNDEFEATED. The Rugby League Grade competitions were advanced another stage last Saturr day. Influenza disarranged the forces of several of the teams. Glebe and Norths were the greatest sufferers of the effect of the epidemic. Nine players of the re gular Glebe team were put out of. action. Nevertheless the Reds - put up a good game against the readers, and' had they played ''-with more vim and snap in the closing stages Balmain would have suf fered their first defeat.; It was expected that with a full team, which usually takes the field, Glebe .bad an excellent chance of. bringing the leaders down 2 points in the competition tabled J The ..^lab'^maM^ rather disappointing.' The showing jex-i hiblted i»y the 'Mains was poor. J. Craig, who filled the full-back position in place of Lyie Wall, played . well under the cir cumstances. Followers of ther 'Mains are so used to seeing good work by Wall that any other, player who may be put jn his place is' subjected to strong cr...
