A Bushman's Lament. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 1 April 1893

. A Bushman's Lament. I'm a bushman half -demented, not a towney discontented With the buBtle and the worry of the city's ceaseless strife ; But we've been misrepresented by poetic yarns invented, So I'm going to say a little 'bout this cursed country life. ? - For I've often gone a shearing and a drov ing, never fearing Of the dangers and discomforts such as flood and drought and blight ; I've gone sin.fc.ipg walls and ritwing1 in rough places out of hearing, Living lonely like a hermit, weeks to gether, day and night. Ah, that awful lonesome feeling over mind and body stealing. Bringing melancholy madness pressing down tbe soul like lead, Till I felt my brain was reeling, all my mental powers congealing, The whole world bo sad and silent that I wished that I were dead. Even Nature changed her seeming; the red sun with hatred gleaming, The bright stars, to me once glorious, scorned and jeered tne in my pain, Aria the fickle moon smiled beaming, while the birds went shrieking, screa...

Casey on Single Tax. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 1 April 1893

Casey on Slnfltt Tax. . Talking about Single Tax and Socialism, it seems to me that the Idea of gaining an improvement in the mere material con dition of men has done nothing as yet. Neither doeB it to my mind seem capable of rousing Any real enthusiasm or work. On the other hand the Socialistic ideal makes men enthusiasts erarv time. It is this spirit which makes trade unions and holds them together. It is this spirit which makes them fight and suffer as they have done during our industrial wars. The self-Baorince to principle displayed in the maritime, shearers' and Broken Hill strikes was due to tho spirit of association that is rapidly permeating those who suffer and endure in common and who will eeek and find their release in co-operation and com 'binalion. * Thexry^rf theSingle JFaxeris-^oefe^o the land.'

The Ito_le.Able Fream _^It is an old saying that «O_Tfcol makes many.' Some fools only «to»to_ themselves out onoe a year, on th is* or April. Others spread themselves over the whole three hundred and sixty* five days. Editor Campbell, of the . ,. Wettern Champion, is one ot these.

No charge can be too vile, too pninnwiuiu, nuu uusuru a» long as It IS directed 'against the Labour Party. All you have to do is to get a journalistic fool of this kind to swallow some silly concoc tion and the whole brood of fooh will follow- But the most surprising part of the whole business ie that the bulk of the people believe them.

A W*rd from Victoria. 'It is with a sad and melanoholy re minisoanoe of the late Victorian general elections,' writes Jack Smith of Beeefe worth, ' that I pen a few words of advice to my fellow workers in Queensland.' Mr. Smith's advice rdLates eliiefly to the im portance of deciding once and for all at the ooming elections the Question of one mau-one^VQie. ^Bitter reoollpcfeions prompt his letter, but he will be fflad to hear that there is so complete an agreement amongst tbe Labour Party itself and also amongst the followers of Sir Charles Liltov them selves upon the necessity for olncirg elec toral reform in tbe very fr-mt of the Radical programme— and keeping it there — that his warning is fortunately almost beside the mark. The fact in that we in Queensland have not had our oyes closed to the jugglery of Victorian nolitics.
