SMOKE HO!! [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 20 February 1892

SMOKE HO!' ? — Truth, the Sydney rag Avhich runs the King of Liars for first place, gets on its re versible tail to jump on relief Avorks, and sings the praises of G. R. Dibbs for his candour in telling the unemployed that he would not find them work at the expense of the many. G. R. D. reckons the unemployed the few. But that turnstile and exRepub lican, the Premier of Landlord -ridden NeAV South Wales, omits to consider the few. Yet, alas ! too many who live on the workers feed their dogs on them, build their mansions with them, pay their servants, give then balls, and clothe themselves, wives and children, all at the expense of the majority, and yet that small, but greedy crowd, never work. Dibbs will do anything for that lot, but nothing for the unemployed would-be worker. Boys, don't forget that the third member for the Murrumbidgee says the man who refuses to work for less than seven -and - sixpence per day is a dang'erous character, a socialist, &c. Reckon the ' socia...

OUR SISTERS' COLUMN. How Do You Like It? [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 20 February 1892

OUR SISTERS' COLUMN. ? ^ ? ? How Do You Like Itl Three million women and children earn ' their own living in this country because their husbands, and fathers cannot earn ? enough to support their families. And their number is increasing every day in the year. The fact of a full-grown Avoman earning her own living lias nothing degrading about it- but when she cannot get enough Avages for her labor to support her in decency and is obliged to ?'supplement' her earnings in other AATays, then it is time to OArerturn the Avliole system that reduces a Avoman to such a strait. This is a heartless age, taken as a Avliole, Avhen a merchant can offer a Avoman 16s a Aveek for her labor ; she is required to dress decently, and she must also have a shelter to sleep in, food she must also liaAre. W e Avould like some of these same merchants to divide 16s into room rent, clothing and food, and see Avhether they would like their OAvn daughters to receiAre the same com pensation, and be obliged to li...

THE LABOR BUREAU. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 27 February 1892

THE LABOR BUREAU. ; ? Tut Bibbs Government has insti tuted a Labor Bureau, to talte the \iLij employed away from the city and tlump them down ill the country. I I say unhesitatingly that no worse |blow has ever been struck at the I Bush Unions than this State Labor jAgencY is ^certain .^o^a^(^auilo§s. it; is wiped out, - or handed over to the lUnions to be worked by them for the 'regulation of Industry, j To fetch the Employer seeking j workmen to the Laborer seeking )work, is its avowed object; .but ^ a ' i i l ament's glance will show that its real effect will be to bring down wages fully twenty-five per cent, on the average. Mr. Dibbs. no doubt, means well ? but in his usual bull-headed fashion tries to get rid of the unemployed ia the City by hunting , them into the country under false pretences of find ing them work. He might as well try to cure the rabbit- plague in the Western District by scattering' the - animals all over the country. Tlie A.S.U. and G-.L.U. sent a joint dep...

REFORM NOTES FROM OUR EXCHANGES. Marching On. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 27 February 1892

REFORM NOTES EROM OTJR EXCHANGES. ? ? Marching On. The number of agitators who brought 1 about the fall of feudalism, and, later on, J the abolition of chattel slavery, was much smaller than the number of men now de manding the abolition of capitalism and wage-slavery. Why, then, should not the Labor movement succeed at an early day ? On Julv 3, 1 776, the masses of the American people never thought of the rights of man as proclaimed by the Declaration of Inde pendence; on July 13, 1789, the masses' of the people of France never thought ef/the possibility of storming the Bastile. To-day there are millions who not only are imbued with the principles of the coining revolution, but also know how to carry them into reality. When will the tocsin sound ?

N OTICE TO AD VERTISERS ? Anyone who wants to do honest business can advertise in the ' ' Hummer. ' ' We have no room for the greedy speculator or moiio-^' polist, the quack or the schemer. No paper can run straight for the people and hit every fraud and lie that exists which has to depend upon the favor of its adver tisers ; and the 'Hummer' means to be in the fore-front of . the Labor Movement while it intends to run honest till it runs down. For these reasons we cringe to no one for advertisements ; but all the same Ave ask Unionists to support their own paper by patronising those who advertise in it, _ The ' ' Hummer' ' is the only truly coopera tive weekly newspaper in Australia, and all profits go towards its improvement. The ' Hummer' office is a recognised Union office. The only one in the Riverma. For terms apply to the MANAGER. CAKRINGTON HOTEL, ' ^p, — ? ? ? - - ..... „ __ MRS BRQtjE, Proprietress.

GOVERNMENT LABOR BUREAU OR LABOR AGENCY FOR THE EMPLOYERS' UNION WHICH? [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 5 March 1892

GOVERNMENT LABOR BUREAU Oft LABOR AGENCY FOR THE EMPLOYERS' UNION WHICH? The value of the above to the Employers must be admitted by all ; that it would be equally so to Avorkers if run on a fail.' basis is also evident ; but it 'must be confessed that all tlie evidence at present points to it as a huge scheme on the part of a Conservative and Capitalistic Go vernment to assist the Employers in crushing Unionism by supplying, at the cost of the country, free labor to take the place of those who refuse to accept work except at a -fair and ' equitable rate of wage. The Pyrmont case is one in point, but a still more - glaring -instance occurred near Bourke a few days ago, when a station manager, failing to obtain locally a number of men at a rate of wage lower than that current in the dis trict, immediately wired, the Bureau for a supply, and of course the ne cessary hands were sent up without question, either as to the number of unemployed in the district, or the local rate of wages ....
