On Friday of lajt week, Premier See, of this State, received a depu tation of 'Labor representatives, both in and out of Parliament, wi h certain suggestions a* to the solu tion of the unemployed problem, which they say, is growing more serious every day.'

They all aat in statesmanlike dignity, as beoarne their exalted positions, whilst the ' representatives of Labor ' pre sented their patent for ' polving ' the ' unemployed problem ' as fol lows : , Mr. A. Cameron, president of the Sydney Labor Council, addressed him self largely to the necessity of calling Parliament together soon. From re ports, it appeared to him rather un likely that the recess would be a short one, and all the time the unemployed ranks were being swollen by fresh arrivals.

PROPAGANDA. WAVERLEY. On Wednesday of last week the monthly meeting was held. There were two speakers and the audience was a large one. Two enthusiastic ultra-lingoes in theorowd provoked an expre-sion of opinion from a large majority of those present tbnt the said Jingoes were not only matting inemseives ridiculous, due that their conduct belied their pro fessed admiration for the freedom claimed to be given every individual under the flag The economic position of the workers in every country, it was pointed our, was similar, and in no country were the workers free — beyond being free to choose between starvation, or of working for the olass that exploited them of three fourths of the products of their labor.

That Picnic "Orator." [Newspaper Article] — People — 29 March 1902
That Picnic ' Orator.'1 At the Day Labor Picnic, a loud voiced, ignorant stonemason called ' Lemon,' acted in such a way to wards the ' Minister for Works ' as i to-ettcrstj.penal'8cicwita5isVop:the,toraa of his life. He delivered what one daily paper called an ' Oration ' — (capital 0, please) — all about him self, and nothing about day labor until the end or the 1 Uration. (Capital 0, please ; when you write about orators always use caps.) He dropped into poetry — beg par don. dopgerel — which de:cribed the loner-Rufferine and patient E. W. O'SullivaD, Minister for Works, as 'The King of Labor.' The Min ister repudiated the lpud-voiced sycophant and bis silly doggerel, and sheeted home some facts to the creatures who crawl to obtain jobs. . ?

Equal Opportunity for All [Newspaper Article] — People — 29 March 1902
Equal Opportunity for AH Some of (he building trade unions are almost rent in two over the question of day labor. One-half of the members, who are in the em ployment of the Government, are strongly in favor of a system of transference from one Government job to another ; or, in other words, they desire to be appointed oivil servants. The other half of the union demand 'equal opportunity for all,' when men are wanted by the Government on day-labor jobs These assert— and that truthfully — that this can only be got by a sys tem of rotation, every member get ting his turn. Rotation would kill ' stone-dead the dealers in religious, politico], sooial and Freemason in ? fluence. And would also, to some extent, get rid of the favoritism of the managers and foreman. The large section wanting to be'trans ferred from job to job are display ing but a unionistio ?spirit ; in faot, their aotion is worse than black lesrGrinsr.

NOTES & COMMENT [Newspaper Article] — People — 29 March 1902
NOTES & COMMENTS When you go to the polling booth you go not to arbitrate, bnt to en force your will. * Vested rights cannot stand against natural human rightji.— - Lincoln. Human rights are always oonsti tutional. — Chakles Sumner. * A ' fool ' in revolt is infinitely wiser than a philosopher forging a learned apology for his chains.— Kossuth. ? The time is past for arbitration, this is |he period for revolution — a peaceful revolution at the Ballot Box — which will change the work ers' relationship to the land and tools of production, make them the collective owners, as they now are collectively the operators. We would then have a Co-operative Commonwealth. * Religion is something that reBta back upon and grows out of the economic conditions that make life itself possible : it is something that has found a different expression in every economic period of human history. ?

MEETINGS. MARX HALL. [Newspaper Article] — People — 29 March 1902
MEETINGS. MARX HALL. ? x ' Some Social Fallacies ' formed the subject ef Comrade Kumeisea's i lecture on Sunday night last. The lecturer said that there were so many social fallacies in society to-day that to enumerate a few of them would be a considerable tax am time, so that his remarks moat necessarily be confined to some of the most glaring ones that daily present themselves. Socialists were frequently met with the ear easm that Socialism was claimed to be the care-all for j the ills that haman flesh was err to, bnt So cialista only claimed that a change \ in the economic conditions will re move all the effects that have their origin in the economic conditions pre vailing under capitalism. A fal - lacy that was prevalent among the more superstitions portion of society was the idea that famine, plague, depression, poverty, sickness, and other social ills, were due to the wrath' of Providence, and this oon oeption or fallacy was the outcome of a complete lack of economic know ledg...

Kev Noe. For the structure that we raise . Time is with materials filled, Our to-days and yesterdays Are the blocks with which we build.
