Profits and Cheap Labor. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 June 1919

Profits and Cheap Labor. It is gratifying to know that the Indian mill workers are rebelling against the abominable factory conditions and the low wages prevalent. In this connection it is interesting to note that the forty-two largest mills in India have made immense profits during the -war. In 1914 their net profits were {823,000, and in T5?17, after paying Income Tax and Super Tax, they amounted to no less than £4,306,000. These 'profits have* becu earned by the payment of wages of a few pennies per head per *av.— Philip Sn« ,' .

THE WORLD'S UNREST AND THE LORD'S PRAYER. SUMMARY OF AN ADDRESS DELIVERED BY MR. FRANK COTTON AT THE FRIENDS' MEETING HOUSE, SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 June 1919

fHE WOlUi)?S IMRSSt AND THE LORD'S PRAYER. SUMMARY OF AN ADDRESS DELIVERED BY MR. FRANK COTTON - AT THE FRIENDS' MEETING HOUSE, SYDNEY. No single piece of literature is more widely known, at anyrate in the Western ?world, than what is called 'The Lord's Prayer.' Long before any official collec tion existed of what are known as the Canonical Scriptures, this petition, and the story of The Good Samaritan, were handed down, as were the old Norsk Sagurs;' from parent to child, by oral re petition. For the reason above stated these fragments of sacred literature prob ably rank amongst the most authentic of any of the historical records ? of the per sonal sayings of X2hrist. This petition is so essentially a human document that it appeals universally to man as man, not because it forms part of so many forms ' of ritual, but very often in spite of ' that fact. So, distinctly human is this document, that when exactly 'the same sentiments are expressed in unconven tional and unorthodox terms...

My idea in submitting this proposal ? was to induce the Government to take over the Cobar copper and gold mines, in the interest of the people of the. State. I therefore submitted a compilation of figures showing, the value ? of -. gola and silver contents per ton of copper won from these mines for the years 1916-1917.

An Impossible Scheme [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 June 1919

An Impossible Scheme The Paris scheme tor a League of the Allied Great Powers is a challenge thrown out by Imperialism to International De mocracy. The peoples of the world at least have not endured the horrors of nearly five years of war under the belief that the sacrifices and sufferings were for the inestimable gain of securing per manent peace now to accept a scheme which maintains in a more aggravated and powerful form all the evils of -alliances and groups which have cursed the world in the past. The Draft Scheme is a prp posal not one whit better than the pro posals of the Hague Convention.' Under this .scheme five Great Powers are .to dominate the world without any Parlia mentary or Democratic. control. An almost impossible condition has been laid down ? for the admission of neutral and enemy: nations to the League, namely, a two- 1 thirds vote of the body of ; the delegai^c; of the present Allies. The proposed l League is an offensive travesty of vji.*^ League of Nations. A...

Keep Your Eye on Gompers. Those of our readers who 'have noted the curious activities of Mr. Samuel Gom pers in regard to the International So cialist movement will be interested in the following paragraphs from a Socialist Press Service, which reached us from Chi cago recently: 'The Radical elements in the American Federation of Labor have started a cam paign to repudiate the Gompers-Russell 'American Alliance for Labor and Demo cracy,' organised for the purpose of put ting the Socialist Party out of business under cover of the war mania.

Freedom or Speech in America. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 June 1919

Freedom of Speech in 'America** ^ -. The champions of freedom of speech aiidt freedom of the press do not seem to under-t . stand that the enemies of their cause arei entrenched in the judiciary. v-' It is a curious fact that' the members of the minor or inferior judiciary, State and Federal, are on the whole less friendly. to the constitutional right of freedom of speech than are the higher courts. Thus for many years the inferior Federal judiciary used the writ of injunction as a means of abridging the right of the workingmen peaceably to assemble and ' petition the Government for a redress of grievances, ? i President Wilson put an end to this ' evil, at least in its gravest forms. But ' the fact that the lower- Federal judgea . had to ge^t a cue from the Executive illus-: ' trates a different evil altogether. The : friends of freedom of speech should heed it. The lower Federal judges show a Oigr], position to consider themselves the agents of the prosecution when certain kinds o...

.Profiteers Fear State ? Competition. ?/ At the National Industrial Conference on February 27, the Minister of Labor thoughtit necessary to enter a defence of the Government's action in selling out the people's factories to private capitalists. The 'Times' report runs: — 'Many people were anxious to use those national factories, operated by the Govern ment— (hear, hear} — and they believed that the factories could have been used to give employment to many people- now out of work. The matter was very care fully considered by the Government, and was dealt with without any prejudiced point of view on either side. There was no preconceived opinion that the State should no operate the factories, but every thing was given consideration. The main point before the mind of the Government was whether such a step would really' give employment. The consideration which ultimately weighed was that their only chance of expediting matters at the pre sent, time was to restore confidence to private e...

MILITANTS AT THE TRADES HALL [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 June 1919

MILITANTS AT THE TRADES HALL After leaving the Conference, the mili tants and their supporters Journeyed to the Trades Hall, where the position from their point of view was discussed. Mr. S. A. Rosa, in the course of a lengthy address, dwelt with the discontent that had evidenced itself at .Conference. - He stated that the tactics adopted by those in control of the Movement to-day savored too much of. Tammanyism, and would have to be stamped out if Labor was to again become & live force' in the country. He added that the militants were, op posed to such tactics, and intended to fight those responsible for underground engineering and wire-pulling.

H. Lambert), and proceeded to declare the Conference open for busi ness. There were angry protests from a section of the delegates, it being contended that as the returning-officer's announce ment of the new executive had not been officially made to Conference, Mr. Willis should be permitted to act as chairman as he had been doing in Mr. Lambert's ab sence. Mr. Bramston, however, refused to submit. Then disorder broke, loose, and for some time there were hoots and groans, mingled with cheers and shouts. Protests were shouted from all parts of the hall, and the climax was reached when the militants, gathering up...

Billy's Manure Heap. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 June 1919

Billy's Manure Heap. Hughes has made quite a number of angry speeches about what He calls Aus tralia's claim to th* Island of Nauru, In the Pacific. The principal point about this island is that it contains a large de posit of fertiliser, In the shape of phos phate rock. The Germans annexed this {Eland from the Polynesians, and a British company leased the phosphate deposit from the Germans. When war broke out we did a little more annexing, and took the Island from the German landlords. Billy wanted this island very badly— and so did the British company, who, of course, like the Russian. Bolsheviks, wanted to get rid of their landlords and stop paying rent. After many protracted discussions the matter was referred to Lord Milner as arbitrator, and he has decided that Australia is to have a 'mandate' over this piece of territory on condition that the British company re ceives a few millions in hard cash for their rights. A 'mandate' over a manure heap, with that sort of a string tied...
