THE TRAIN OF DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 June 1919

THE TRAIN OF iferTHT' Under the above heading Rudolph Bukely writes in the American 'Red Cross Magazine' an account of the treatment of prisoners by the anti re\ olutionary party of Russia, headed by Admiral Kolchak, which explains many tilings. It explains 'why American troops in Russia flatly refused to obey the commands of their officers ; why French naval men have mutinied, and why the demand to cease inter vention in Russian affairs is growing in strength and volume in every country wherever the truth is known about this infamy. Not that the ''Red Cross' correspondent touches on any of the above points. He merely tells a straightforward story as an eye-witness of what is being done in Russia with Avhat Lloyd George calls 'the moral and financial support of 'the Allies. '' The 'Red Cross' corre spondent says: 'I have read many times of 'the Black Hole of Calcutta'.' I have been told stories of Russian prisoners returning from German prison camps wrecked by starvation and tubercu...

Scraps. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 June 1919

Scraps. 'Ricketty' Johnston, for the Blues, worked like a Trojan. He was responsible for the 2 tries scored by Newtown: 'Boxer' Russell made a great effort to cross over, but was. put out in the corner. Hughes, of Annandale, is playing great football. He should have been given A place in the 'Odds' team. Barney Macpherson took his goalkick ing boots with him on Saturday. The Burge brothers were absentees in the Reds' team. Their loss was a severe blow. Never mind, all being well, wait till the second round comes along, by 'Hobo' Cubitt the Tricolors' skipper, heads the list of trygetters with eight tries. Harold Horder, South's flying machine, has six tries to his credit,- and is closely j followed by 'Chook' Fraser, of Balmain, with five tries. Referee Tom McMahon will have charge of the big game to-day. ? The matter of providing corner flag 'posts of a material not likely to injure players is receiving the attention of the League.

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER. PUBLIC LIBRARY OF N.S.W. Corner Bent and Macquarie streets. "DEMOS"—THE MEANING OF RECONSTRUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 June 1919

KNOWLEDGES POWER PUBLIC LIBRARY OF N.S.W. Corner Bent and Macquarie streets.' 'DEMOS'— THE MEANING OF RECONSTRUCTION. ? This work contains eight essays re printed from 'The Athenaeum,' each es. say .being complete in itself, but the whole at the same time .forming an unbroken exposition of the anonymous author's views as to the meaning of Reconstruc tion. The author claims that the aim of the essays is not to formulate a recon struction programme, or to discuss the many complex problems with which the . country will be faced in the work of re construction, but rather to consider the real purpose of Reconstruction and some Df the things which such a purpose implies. Liberty, Freedom as against the Au thority of the past, is set up by 'Demos' as the purpose of Reconstruction, and these essays form a background for a pol icy based on such Liberty — they are, in fact, a criticism of the doctrines of Au thority, whether militarist or materialist. 'It is the purpose of Reconstruction to c...

Song of Labor. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 June 1919

Song of Labor. Out of chaos, out of murk, I arose and did my work; While the ages changed and sped, I was toiling for my bread. Underneath my sturdy blows Forests fell and cities rose; And the hard, reluctant soil Blossomed richly from my toll Palaces and temples grand Wrought I with my cunning hand. Rich indeed was my rewai-d — Stunted soul and body scarred With the marks of scourge and rod. I, the tiller of the sod. From the cradle to the grave Shambled through the world— a slave. Crushed and trampled, beaten, cursed; Serving best, but served' the worst; Starved and cheated, gouged and spoiled. Still I builded, still I tolled, Undernourished, underpaid, In the world myself had made. Up from slavery I rise. Dreams and wonder in my eyes. After brutal ages past Coming to my own at last. I was slave — out T am free! I was blind — but I can see! L the builder, I, the maker, L the calm tradition-breaker, Slave and serf and clod no longe., Know my strength — and who is stronger? I am don...

John Ruskin, Revolutionist. BORN FEB. 8, 1819; DIED JAN, 20, 1900. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 June 1919

John Ruskm, Revolutionist. BORN FEB. 8, 1819; DIED JAN, 20, 1900. By JOHX A. HOBSON, M.A. The genius - of John Ruskin shone through so many facets that it was easy for the comfortably placed and educated men and women who read his books in the dim Victorian age to miss his essential meaning. It was^made the easier for them because they had inherited notions abou t art and literature as belonging merely to the ornamental side of a well to-do life, and as disabling those who dealt with them from interfering in busi ness, politics, or other practical affairs. When the great '-word painter' of 'Modern Painters' and *'S/tones of j Venice,' with its eloquent eulogy of Turner and wonderful sermons on the nature of Gothic architecture, suddenly be took himself to denouncing the splendid prosperity which the new factory system was bringing to Great Britain, and the political economy which glorified the di vision of labor and competition that were its animating principles, it was only na tura...

THE CASE OF ARNOLD HOLMES. To the Editor, "Labor News." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 June 1919

THE CASE OF ARNOLD HOLMES. To the Editor, 'Labor News.'. Sir,— On Saturday, May 24, the late re spected Socialist, Luke Jones', was buried. On the following day an advertised 'Luke Jones Memorial Meeting' was held in the Domain, at which Mr. Arnold Holmes flew a red flag, half-mast, for three or four minutes, while the crowd sang two verses of the song, let the Crown thought fit to prosecute for this technical breach of the War Precautions Act. For mean, pettiness it would surely be difficult to find a parallel in the way of 'war prose cutions.' For this appropriate act in memory of Luke Jones Mr. Arnold Holmes is now in jail for a month. I take, the liberty of suggesting to you, Sir, that you give as much moral sup port to Mr. Holmes as you reasonably can, and at the same time show up the con temptible nature of our Government, which is full of the lust of arbitrary and coercive power.

Then and Now. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 June 1919

Then and Now. In July, 1912, Mr. Lloyd George, inter viewed by a representative of New York 'Outlook,' said:— v 'There are 2,000,000 idle rich in Great Britain, who lounge in clubs in London, walk the country with guns on shoulders and dogs at heels, to whom motoring and golf are the serious occupations of their lives, and whose sole business is to enjoy, themselves at the expense of the great multitudes living arduous lives, without sufficient -food, raiment or repose.' Now is it for these two million busy con sumers and their heirs that the weary mul titudes are so persistently being exhorted to increase production, or for themselves? Let the reader confess, too, that taking one thing with another, perhaps few ter restrial appearances are better worth con sidering than mobs. Your mob is a gen uine outburst of Nature; issuing from, or communicating with, the deepest deep of Nature. When so much goes grinning and grimacing as a lifeless Formality, and under the stiff buckram, no hea...

WHERE THE CHURCHES STAND. To the Editor, "Labor News." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 June 1919

WHERE THE CHURCHES STAND. To the Editor, 'Labor News.' Sir, — In an address given by the Mode rator of the Presbyterian Assembly, he stated that he believed a call had come to the Church and see where she stands in this new day and adjust herself to the need of the times. Does that mean that the time is now. ripe to preach and prac tise the Sermon on the Mount? And that it was a dead letter when the time was not opportune for it? All over the world the general run of ministers of the Gospel have placed na tionality before Christianity— they pro fessed to serve Christ. His commands are: 'Love your enemies,' 'Do good to those who despltef ully use youf ' 'Thou shalt not kill,' 'Sell what thou hast and give it to the poor,' 'Blessed are the peace makers,' etc. These commands have been ignored. If ministers thought they were impos sible orders to execute, well and good. They had a right to make their opinions known and refrain from pretending to follow Christ when His teachings were aga...

The Class War. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 June 1919

The Class War. Under the Socialist movement there is coming a tWe — and the time may even now be at hand — when improved condi tions or adjusted wages will no longer be thought an answer to the cry of Labor; yes, when these will be but an insult to the common intelligence. It is not for better wages, improved capitalist condi tions, or a share of capitalist profits that the Socialist movement is In the world; it is here for the abolition of wages and profits, and for the end of Capitalism and i the private capitalist. Reformed political; institutions, boards of arbitration between i Capital and Labor, philanthropies and privileges that are but the capitalist's gifts — none of these can much longer an swer the question that is making the temples, thrones and Parliaments of the nations tremble. There can be no peace between the man who is down and the man who builds' on-bis back. There can be no peace between the man who. is down and the man who builds on his back. There can be no rec...

MR. GRIFFITH PROTESTS. To the Editor, "Labor News." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 June 1919

MR. GRIFFITH PROTESTS. , To the Editor, 'Labor News.' Sir,— I have noticed from press reports that my name has (without any sort of justification) been dragged about the floor at the recent A.L.P. Conference. When a man is occupying a public position the electors (who pay him) have a perfect right to attack and criticise him as they please — it is a part of the implied com pact. But when a man is out of public life — even temporarily — he has a right, to claim an immunity from this sort of thing. From the published statements I am made to appear as having been endeavor ing to negotiate with the P.L.L. Executive for my re-admission. This is not true. I was illegally expelled by the A.L.P. Exe cutive for daiing ,to exercise my un doubted right as a free citizen to vote and speak as I thought proper on a great national issue. I broke no rule or plank of the platform. I had (as a- Labor man) as much right' to support the principle of compulsory ballot for enlistment as other Labor men h...

The ' Round Table ' on Bolshevism. There is an interesting article iu the | 'Round Table' (London) for March quar- . :-i ter on the Bolsheviks. It does not favor ??' 3 the Bolsheviks, of course, but on the 'M whole the article is fair, and many things :'^| are written very contrary to cabled ac«-',Sj counts.

We'd paint red instead of brown, Place a halo on a clown, , She steps in and turns it doflrti, It doesn't do to chide her. Yet one wonders, now and then, Why it is that working men, In their broods of nine and ten, Have daughters rich in beauty.
