"THE WORKER'S" LATEST CRITIC [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 28 September 1910
'THE WORKER'S' LATEST CRITIC Some few weeks ago news reached us that a letter, making serious charges against The Worker management, had been received at some of the sheds. In response to a request made through The Worker we have now re ceived copies of this extraordinary docu ment. We were at first inclined to the belief that the letters were being circu lated as part of an attack upon the Labor Daily proposal, and that some clever schemer was behind them. But an ex amination of the handwriting has dis pelled that theory. We know the man. They are all the work of a poor crank at Forbes, who has forged various names, but whose own name is not attached to any of the copies that have reached us. The 'charges' are of the most i-idiculous character. for instance, the Managing Editor's salary is arrived at by adding to gether the total amounts appearing in the balance sheets for salaries to 'the whole clerical, editorial, and managerial staff! Among other absurd allegations is one that t...

SHEARING IN NEW ZEALAND. THE ARBITRATION COURT DELIVERS AN AWARD. BUT SHEARERS SOLID FOR £1 PER 100. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 28 September 1910
SHEARING IN NEW ZEALAND^ THE ARBITRATION COURT DELIVERS AM AWARD. r BUT SHEARERS SOLID FOR £1 PER 100. The Ncav Zealand 'Shearers and Wool ehed Employees' Unioft lias already de livered its policy, agreed to and supported - by the whole of its. membership through out the .Dominion, on the .question of the shearing -rate; that policy is .that' nb; rate is a fair rate unless its minimum is 20s. per 100.

The jjastoralists, jealous of the workers' grow-: ing power, ignored the request for a con * ference, and subsequently filed claims in the Arbitration Courts at Christchurch and Wellington, which represented a re duction on the current shearing rate, .which was 2'0s. per -100 at Wellington and 18s. per 100 -in...

LOCK-OUT OF SYDNEY SLAUGHTERMEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 29 September 1910
LOCK-OUT OF SYDNEY SLAUGHTERMEN. The N.S.W. Labor Council has circti larised all affiliated Unions asking financial assistance for the slaughtermen who are practicaly locked-out by tlie Glebe Island carcase butch/ers. The Council adds that its Executive, having: made careful investigation, is satisfied that the men are fully justified in refus ing to engage on piecework a.t Glebe Is- i land, and could not, on account of the antiquated arrangement of that abat toirs,- enter into such agreement without losing at least 20 per cent, of the wages heretofore received. T. A.- Field, of the Carcase Butchers' Association, . contests the latter assertion, saying that he can prove 'by undeniable faxts and figures' that piecework would not involve a loss of 20 per cent, to the men. It is a pity, if T. A. Field is so sure, that he did not publish his facts and figures, and not leave the public to accept his mere say-so that they can be produced. One thing is clear, else why any desire for change...
ELECTORS OF THE LACHLAN UP IN ARMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 29 September 1910
ELECTORS OF THE LACHLAN UP IN ARMS. Another scurry trick of the Immaculate AVade has been played, palpably with a purpose. Wade was never known to politically move without an ulterior motive primarily conceived to crush de mocracy, that hideous nightmare of every Tory. This time it was performed in the 'Laehlan electorate. Our information comes from Condobolin, and is from a re liable man of long standing in that com munity. It is to the effect that the j trusted returning-officer for the Laclilan electorate, Mr. Tasker, who has honorably performed his duties for the past eighteen j years without a bleinish, and in whom tlie electors of all shaxles of opinion could at all times place their most complete con fidence, lias suddenly been relieved of his office. It is suggested locally that Mr. Tasker was suspected of sympathy with the cause of democracy. That would, of course, be an unpardonable crime with, the leg-iron administration. But the outrage is further accentuated by tlie ann...

HOUSEHOLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 29 September 1910
HOUSEHOLD. If you have, good linen (table or bed) - take good care of it. Table cloths and napkins are specially liable to cut where they are folded, where the cloth hangs over the table edge, and 'at edges. Much of this wear may be obviated by the simple expedient of folding 'in four' one time and ' in three ' next time, repeating this chanee both sidewavs and endwavs. To move the line of pressure wear When you find places growing thin, cut an inch or two off a side and end and re hem. This makes a change of places, also of folds, and is as good for table napkins as for table cloths. Pillow slips should be opened at the end and refelled folded the opposite way. It -will give a seam in the middle of one side. But by this time the seam should be . soft enough not to matter.

There was a very enthusi astic gathex'ing to hear him. The; Mayor, Mr. F. Pinkstone, acted as chaii'man. Mr. Holman, on rising, was'.vgreeted with applause. He' referred to news that had been received of his opponent, .Colonel Ryrie, and he now felt sorry he had re ferred harshly, to him -at his (Mr. Hoi- -?- man's) fest meeting..

FOR THE BAIRNS. THE NINEPENNY FIDIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 29 September 1910
FOR THE BAIRNS. THE N1NEPENNY FIDIL.

And to the lintwhite's piping The many's the tune I play! One pleasant eve in June time I met a lochrie man, His face and hands were weazen, His height was not a span. He boor'd me for my fidil — ' You know,' says he ' like you, My father and mother were Irish, And I am Irish, too!' ' He took my wee red fidil, ?

BIOSCOPE PICTURES FOR CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 29 September 1910
— — -♦ ? BIOSCOPE PICTURES FOR CHILDREN. j Following up what already has ap peared on the 'Women's Page' on this subject, it may be noted that the Italian Government has framed a bill intended to suppress the exhibition of pictures likely to. have a bad effect on youth; the Government being of opinion that .unde sirable pictures have an influence in the direction of crime. All pictures- are to be subject to authority, and those not be ing either of an educational character, natural scenery, cities, dealing with art subjects, agricultural and industrial pro cesses, and events of national life, are to pay a special tax. No chifdren under 13 years of age are to be allowed at picture entertainments unless with their parents, and they are' under no circumstances ever to be employed in theatres dealing with them. The pains and penalties to be at tached to breaches of the Act when it be comes law are reasonably severe. For a first offence a- fine of £12 and the de struction of all objectio...
AN ELECTION TRACI-COMEDY. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 29 September 1910
AN ELECTIGH TRACI-COMEDY. Mi's. Brune Smighth rose from a perusal of her morning paper to attend to the call of the fishmonger. The lady never trusted the purchasing of the family fish supply to the servants, and she was just as par ticular about the rest of the family physi cal pabulum. That she had thoroughly di gested her morning paper proved the good soul was not so particular about her men tal bill of fare. She had swallowed and absorbed several columns of paragraphs and articles denouncing the Labor Caucus and lauding the Liberal ditto, only the papers did not call it a ditto. 1 But the particular thing that impressed Mrs. Brune Smighth was that she, as a Liberal woman, had to be up and doing. She commenced, after getting a supply of excellent fresh fish from the hawker, to deal out to him a supply of political 'stinking fish.' The fish man was busy, in a hurry, and abrupt. ' I always vote for the Labor man, mum!' Before Mrs. B, could ejaculate a sur prised 'Oh!' the fish man ...
