EDITORIAL. SHANDYGAFF ECONOMICS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 June 1919

EDITORIAL SHANDYGAFF ECONOMICS. The suggested increase in the Federal tariff fills the mind of the Protectionist 'Sydney Sun' with dire misgiving. That journal has loudly proclaimed its faith in the Protectionist theory of salvation by tariffs on numberless occasions, when no particular issue was at stake, but pro posed actual legislation is quite another matter. The difficulty about any future, extension of the tariff from the 'Sun's' standpoint is, to quote its own words: 'The difficulty of protecting industries without killing the Custom House as a revenue producting Department.'' The Custom House ia a venerable institution and an object of reverence alike to al leged freetraders and protectionists. The abolition of the system of raising re venue by taxing imports would meet with the same strenuous opposition from the Freetrade 'Daily Telegraph' as from the Protectionist 'Sun.' THE LOGICAL CONCLUSION OF BOTH THEORIES. Yet, curiously enough, if either free traders or protectionist...

ROUND THE SHOWS "TRILBY." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 28 June 1919

I. ' ' ..''-''^ ?;'-'-? y ?''./' ' '?'? ????* n . (By JAl^SffiBONS.) 'TRILBY.' For' this week Alan Wllkie and Co prEr : sent an astonishingly even revival', of 'Trilby' at the Royal. It is twenty-three years since Reuben Fax, as Svengali, and Edith Crane, as Trilby, fascinated Aus tralia in the Du Maurier play which is now being seen for the first time by a new generation of playgoers.' Wilkie's read ing of the part satisfies-most critics— the ones who are not afraid to praise when praise is called for. The thrilling death scene, where the bearded mesmerist falls backward across the table is finely done; and Miss Frediswyde Hunter-Watts looks beautiful and pathetic- as the entranced singer who wakes from her dream to hear the cruel* hisses of the crowd. The sup porting artists of the cast back up their principals well, and anyone who does not know the studio play should endeavor to see it before Friday. 'The Midnight Wed ding' is to be revived on Saturday. It was a toss-up as to whe...

A Daughter's Letter [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 28 June 1919

[?] Dear Mother,— The cables have been kept busy lately giving us the outlines of several divorce suits in English high life. The divorce court touches homes in all grades of life; but the leisured classes seem to provide the most unpleasant cases. Perhaps you re member the hardworking little neighbor who used to do the cleaning for us years ago. She was always bright and cheer-' ful — always planning ahead for a secure and happy middle-age. We thought she had a wedding in view, but when you asked her when it was to be, she con fessed that she was working and saving up to get a divorce from the worthless man she had married as a girl fifteen years before. There was something admirable about her self-reliance and determination to cut free and live her own life. You rarely find that amongst the highly placed people who, with every wordly ad vantage, have wasted their opportunities for happiness. I am told that two or three of the girls who attended one of the big dances in Melbourne r...

BOXING. I [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 28 June 1919

BOXING. Tommy Uren (holaer) is to meet Jack Cole for the middleweight championship of Australia at the Sydney Stadium to night (Saturday). Frank Mancer and Pat Humphries will supply the usual ten -round preliminary. - Sid Godfrey, featherweight champion of Australia, defeated Bob Williams, light weight champion of New South Wales, at the Sydney Stadium on Saturday night. Godfrey won on a technical knockout half way through the 20th round. Williams boxed brilliantly, but lacked stamina, and in the last four rounds was completely outstayed. Harold Hardwick (Aus.), who a few years back won the amateur boxing- cham pionship of the British Empire, was de feated in the 12th round of a contest with Arthur Townley in London recently. The bout was staged as a preliminary to the Goddard- Beckett battle for the heavy weight championship of England. Jimmy Clabby is booked to again ineet Fred Holland on Saturday, July 5. Jimmy gained a points decision over Fred at Newcastle last Friday. week. At...

The Blackest Lie. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 28 June 1919

The Blackest lie. Is it possible that the Bolsheviks are not quite . so black as they have been painted? (says the London 'Daily News'). At all events, I am glad to see in this week's issue of the 'New Europe' that the monstrous story of the nationalisation of women by the Soviet Government is utterly discredited. The 'New Europe' was the first paper in this country to publish the Bolshevik 'decree' that all women in Russia were to become common property, and the 'Izvestia,' the official organ of the Soviets, was quoted as the source of this information. The 'New Europe' admits that a serious mistake has been made; it withdraws all imputa tions, and further states that there is ab solutely no evidence connecting the Bol shevik Government with the infamous or der — the- text of which has been pub lished under flaming' headlines by most English papers. Will they follow the good example of the 'New Europe' and give oven the devil his due? ♦ ? Craft unions are exceedingly useful — usefu...

CORRESPONDENCE. THE LOST TUGGERAH. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 28 June 1919

| CORRESPONDENCE, i THE LOST TUGGERAH. As one wlio was present at the inquiry held into the foundering of the Tuggerah and listened attentively to the evidence brought forward, I am amazed at the ex traordinary finding of the Court. ? The evidence, according to the finding, proved conclusively that — 1. The Tuggerah left Bull! with both hatches open and the trimming of her eargo not completed. 2.. She had a list which gradually in .' creased owing to her shipping water in rough . weather, which necessarily found Its way below. This, combined with the fact that the cargo probably shifted owing to her not being loaded to her full ca pa«ity,' was the cause of six valuable lives befng lost. ; 'The whole cause of the trouble,' said the Judge, 'is trying to do too much in too ; short a time.' These facts clearly indicate ?'. crjminal neglect on somebody's part, and it is to be regretted that the Court re ' mained mute and indifferent to its duty of placing the responsibility, in the right...

Ecclesiastical Echoes. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 28 June 1919

Ecclesiastical Echoes. -By AN UNORTHODOX REPORTER.) ?Dearly Beloved Brethren, — We are watching the current of social events very anxiously at the present time and have dis covered that there Is abroad in the world a wide-spread belief amongst the working classes that they are not receiving quite a fair share of the wealth which they — in conjunction with the land-owning and employing classes — create. This belief j may, or may not, be rightly grounded ; it j is scarcely within our province to give any ' decision upon merely secular and ' material Questions. ! In the case of the ..English coalminers, however,- since public opinion seems un doubtedly on their side, and they have actually obtained many of the conces- : sions sought for, we think it may safely jfcne admitted, with some reasonable quali fication, that there was some ground for! dissatisfaction in their case.

THE WHEAT POOL. TO the Editor, "Labor News." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 28 June 1919

THE WHEAT POOL. TO the Editor, 'Labor News.' Sir, — Apparently the only people whose interests have suffei'ed as a result of the ? recent newspaper controversy concerning the quality of 1916-17 wheat are the unfor tunate farmers who sold 1JI16-17 certifi cates.' Though the market price for these certificates is at the present time about the same as it was prior to the 'scare,' the fact remains that values dropped about fifl per cent, after the first article appeared in the 'Sun,' and remained down long enough, it is alleged, to enable speculators ^to reap, large profits from settlements in respect to forwnrd sales. Certificates represented a fairly large quantity of wheat at the reduced figure, which meant a net return of about ljd. per bushel as against 2Jd., the present ?net value. Losses in this direction might have been avoided if the Government had issued :t balance-sheet. The publication oir the official valuation would have been of national benefit. A long period of time has ...

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER PUBLIC LIBRARY OF N.S.W. Corner Bent and Macquarie streets. NEW BOOKS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 28 June 1919

[?] PUBLIC LIBRARY OF N.S.W. Corner Bent and Macquarie streetSr NEW BOOKS. HENDERSON, A.: 'THE AIMS OF LABOR.' The purpose of this small volume is evidently to advance the social and politi cal ideals -which Mr. Henderson has at heart; at' the same time, it does not make any pretence of being a, complete, com prehensive, and exhaustive statement of the aims of British Labor, nor yet a finished work on Labor politics. It is rather a collection of articles written by Mr. Henderson in the early months of 1918 for various magazines, and now gathered together in book form in the hope that they may prove to be of some help to those who are interested in the Labor aims and Labor problems of to day. First of all, the Political Labor Move ment is discussed with the changes in methods of production, control of industry, management and distribution of labor, and the limitations upon the activities of financiers and capitalists which the war has undeniably brought about. These changes the autho...
