BOXING. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 June 1919
BOXING. Tommy Uren outfought Barney Thomp son, of Victoria, at the Stadium on Satur day night, the referee intervening in the 19th round to save Thompson further punishment. The loser fought a good, game, uphill fight, but Tommy carried too many guns for him. # * ? Eddie McGoorty, whose double defeat by the late Les. Darcy placed the seal of fame on the young Australian champi6n, has been clearing up most of the old-time champions of England. Petty Officer Curran, Bandmaster Rice, and several others have fallen victims to the hefty Eddie's famous right and left swings, and the chances are that Eddie is now well in line for a full house affair with Georges Carpentier. . * * ? A New York telegram to the 'Herald,' Paris, in April last, stated that Jack Britton, who recently won ? the world's welterweight championship by knocking out Ted Lewis, fought twelve rounds with Bryan Downey, of Columbus, at Canto, Ohio. The newspaper decision was a draw. Downey floored the champion in the eleve...
Why Not Co-operation? COST OF LIVING. SOLDIERS WANT DISCOUNT. PROPOSED COMPANIES' STORE. BROKEN HILL, Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 June 1919
Why Not Co-operation? COST OF LIVING. SOLOJERS WANT DISCOUNT. PROPOSED COMPANIES' STORE. BKO1CBN HILL, Saturday. At the last meeting of the Chamber of Commerce the secretary of the Broken Hill sub-branch of the Returned Sailors and Soldiers' Imperial League wrote ask ing that discount. should be allowed on all purchases made by returned soldiers. The secretary of the Chamber pointed out that he had been informed that some Of the shops in Adelaide allowed as much as 10 per cent, discount on purchases by soldiers, but that many of the firms did not allow any discount. One of the members of the Chamber raised the point that it was likely that the practice would be abused, and that returned soldiers would become purchasing agents for their friends. Eventually it was decided to inform the Sailors and Soldiers' Association that the members of the Chamber were in full sympathy with the suggestion, ana that it had been referred to the individual asso ciations affiliated with the Chamber, an...
WORLD'S. LIGHTWEIGHT CHAMPION. LEONARD AGAIN BEATS RITCHIE. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 June 1919
WORLD'S. ^LIGHTWEIGHT CHAMPION. LEONARD AGAIN BEATS RITCHIE. Benny Leonard, present world's light weight champion, and Willie Ritchie, former holder of the title, have met and fought again. Facing each other as wel terweights, and with no other pugilistic honor at stake but the glory of victory, Leonard knocked out his titular prede cessor in the last minute of their eight round return engagement at the Newark Snortsmen's Club. ' . Forty seconds before the final bell, and after he had been knocked down twice for the count, Ritchie was hanging helpless on the ropes. Referee Slim Brennan promptly stopped the bout to save him from further punishment. Brennan acted wisely. To have permitted the match to continue, even though Ritchie might possibly have sur vived those last forty seconds, would have been countenancing a brutal exhibition. The Californian man was 'in'; utterly de fenceless. He was but a mark for Leonard's punches, and Leonard was bat tering him mercilessly. Ritchie was sa...
A Daughter's Letter [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 June 1919
&i&t I Dear Mother, — Isn't it amazing how some girls will keep on wearing low blouses despite the onset of winter and the numbing threat of pneumonic influenza? I saw a pretty little thing In the tram yesterday. She was one of the lo\vblous_eandsilkstock ing brigade, and was shivering miserably. Because she couldn't afford a fur coat j she was braving the bitter westerly in the j neat little frock that had served her all ! summer. Sometimes I think a vigilance | corps of matrons would save a lot of ! serious illnesses and lives by accosting ! these young things and sending; them : home to dress suitably. In many homes j poor old 'Mum' has no more authority j than the young man who iK-lm-rs tlio ! bread. i How the prices of coals' huve .??oart.'il! ! The other evening one of the big shops i advertised a limited number of coats : (previously priced at a handful of guineas) 1 at something under four pounds each. It \ stirred the suburbs like a declaration Of war, and i...

ROUND THE SHOWS "GOODY TWO SHOES." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 June 1919
I RflfUND THE SHdWS \ CB? JANE SIDDONS.) 'GOODY TWO SHOES.' The big J. C. Williamson panto, is still drawing well at Her Majesty's. The music is tuneful and the dialogue has to get to the point and be quick with it, so that spectacle may be piled on spectacle. May de Sousa ia very piquant as principal boy, and the humor of Stigant, as dame, carries the show. Stigant has an extraordinary number of old lady mannerisms, and uses them cleverly, so that you presently, for get that he is only a comedian fooling. He reminds the present writer of a dear old dame 'down in Victoria, — though the dear old dame would be furious if. she thought she resembled a. pantomime, scarecrow in any degree. There is something pathetic in the way lie dodders into a bathtub and whoops exhaustedly when helped out. Maggie Dickinson's dancing is always a delight, and the playgoer is fascinated by the artistic completeness of the Kirchner scene. Fred Walton, as the Toy Soldier, is the essence of silent comedy, a...
The Fleet That Went Away. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 June 1919
The Fleet That Went Away. The return of the Australian fleet is naturally a matter for both official and national jubilation, but the question re mains unanswered: Why did it go away? That fleet was brought Into existence for a definite national purpose — the patrolling of Australian waters and the defence of Australian shores in the event of war. Yet soon after the outbreak of war oc curred our fleet for some unexplained reason left its appointed post—to patrol the North Sea. This was a hard and dangerous duty, as it involved keeping watch over the great British dreadnoughts as they lay at anchor in various, harbors, and screening them against the attacks of fast enemy torpedo boats and submar ines: Important as this work was it ought not to have been, beyond the resources of the British Admiralty without our as sistance. In the absence of the Austra lian fleet from the zone wherein it was originally intended to operate, many things occurred. A tenth-rate armed enemy merchant craft...

Hands Off Russia! [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 June 1919
Hands Off Russia ! Up till now the capitalist attempt to strangle the Russian Revolution is riot proving very successful (says London 'Herald')- As swiftly as it is put down in one place it spreads to another. And if our capitalists really attempt to destroy it at Petrograd and at Moscow then they should be solemnly warned that such ac tion would be the surest way of setting the revolutionary fires ablaze nearer home. There Is no desire for armed re volution in Britain. No humane man wishes to see machine guns and Mills' bombs and massacre in Whitehall — nor at Versailles. Everyone would prefer that the revolution should come through the mind and the ballot bos and by orderly constitutional means. But organised Labor must not allow British soldiers to be killed in Russia at the bidding of financiers nor Russian workers and wo men to be starved at the dictate of money lenders. The war with Germany is ended. There must be no further war with Rus sia. All our expeditions in Russia must...
As the Sun Goes Down. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 June 1919
As the Sun Goes Down. It was early morning. The mists rolled up the mountain slopes, and the dewdrops flashed back the light of the sun's first low level rays as we met, full of hope and enthusiasm, to rear the Temple of Free dom.. 3F 5F W The site was rough and uneven, and at one point a little spring, choked with rub bish, had formed a green stagnant pool. We talked loudly of the noble work we had undertaken, and of how the rays of the setting sun would gild the topmost , pinnacle of the glorious temple — and the sun rose higher in the heavens.. - * * * Then we grew eloquent over the fut- j ure splendor of that Temple. We began to I argue over whose name should head the j memorial roll of. the builders, which . could be preserved within its walls . through uncounted ages yet to come. We \ became hot and angry and talked of ; framing regulations to prevent the des- j cendants of one builder claiming prece dence over another, when in the days to come great processions should march u...

Another Labor Man Gone. DEATH OF JOHN BURNS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 June 1919
Another Labor Man Gone. DEATH OF JOHN BURNS. Jack Burns, a well-known militant La borite, secretary of the N.S.W. Division of the Federated Ironworkers' Union, and a younger brother of George Burns, ex member for Illawarra, died on Wednesday morning at half-past seven from pneu monic influenza. The deceased was a persistent and ag gressive fighter for Labor ideals, and had been a delegate on the Labor Council for some years. He leaves a widow and three children. Widespread regret will be felt through out the Movement for the loss of a good, straight fighter, and universal sympathy will be extended to the family in their sad bereavement.
DEMOCRACY. II. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 June 1919
DEMOCRACY. n. - Democracy — from 'Demos,' the people — is best defined as 'Government of the people, Jjy the people, for the people.' Its aitn should logically be: 'T\\e greatest good of the greatest number.' Camouflage or political hypocrisy, ?which is the strongest supporter of pluto cracy, ranks as the worst foe, the greatest curse of democracy. Class government of all shades and var ieties masquerades in the name of De imoc'racy. Plutocrats and other selfseek ing leaders of the classes are ever en deavoring to persuade the people that they are legislating for the good of the many ?when, in reality, they are sadd'ng the masses with burdens for their own or their class aggrandisement. Such sham democrats, while pretending to work for the good of the nation are, all the while, Bimply feathering their own nests at pub lic expense. Discrimination, stern, relentless dis crimination is necessary on the part of Demos, if the State is to be guided clear of the class-biased traps, and the...

Many a demobilised soldier cannot get bock his old work. Yet he must live, so ronst hie family. Many cannot find any . where to live in Paris at prices they can pay, W at any price.

'Certainly no one imagined that the * home-coming of the laurel-crowned soldier ?would be like this. : 'And meantime every post brings heart rending letters from men in the French Expeditionary Forces in the East and in Russia.

A Study in Capital Value. V. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 June 1919
A Study in Capital Value. v. Socialism teaches that the surplus value Is divided into Rent, Interest, and Profit, and it is advisable to examine What effect the creation of a National Reserve would have upon these forms of ex ploitation. The question of Rent is easy to under stand. Rent is simply a premium offered for a better site than the nearest one available for nothing. Of course the present system of Govern ment control of unaiienated land, but put ting an artificial, value on it, thereby keeping people off it, has made rent higher than it would otherwise be, but that Is a detail. Interest is not so simple. It is of two forms: First, the income received in the form of profit from the ownership of capital, called implicit interest, and second, the income paid as a straight-out payment by a borrower, the' ownership of the security being exchanged for the time being for the lender's cash. This is known as explicit interest. It is obvious that a man being able to buy a rental inco...
UNLUCKY NORTHS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 June 1919
UNLUCKY NORTHS. Norths, with practically a second grade team, filed on to the ground to meet Western Suburbs. North Sydney suffered through the effects of the 'flu. From the kick-off it was'; evident that Norths did not have a look in. For the vanquished, Taplin stood alone as a player. His effec tive tackling repeatedly prevented scores. Wests crossed over 11 times. Barney Macpherson converted 9 of 10 tries scored. McCauley failed to convert the remaining try. Macpherson kicked several goals from difficult angles. Final scores: Western Suburbs 51 points, North Sydney nil.
