SEEN IN SOCIETIES.—I. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 1 March 1890

SEEN IN SOCIETIES. - I. THE RESPECTABLE MEMBER is an individual who declaims in and out of season that he belongs to what he is pleased to refer to seri-   ously as the artisan class, but which in his jocular moments he mentions as "the aristo-   cracy of labour." In appearance he is natur- ally very dignified. He affects white shirts, and is particular about his cuffs. He carries a cane, scents his curled moustache, and dis- plays a whole frontful of jewellery, as though     it were his sole claim to distinction. The respectable member has an overwhelm- ing feeling that he knows all about it. As he does not, he is a great and continuous bore to himself and to all with whom he comes in con- tract. He is well-meaning, and really wants not to make those to whom Providence has not been so bountiful uncomfortable in his presence, and it is painfully apparent in his   conversation with rough unskilled labourers that he wishes to be cons...

Let her flap and rise in therush of the eager air,   With the ring of the wild swan's wings as she soars from the swamp and her reedy lair.   Fling out the Flag! And let friend and foe behold, for gain or loss, The sign of our faith and the fight we fight, the Stars of the Southern Cross! Oh! blue's for the sky that is fair for all, who- ever, wherever he be,         And silver's the light that shines on all for hope and liberty,           And that's the desire that burns in our hearts, for ever quenchless and bright.       And that's the sigh of our flawless faith and the peerless fight we fight!       What is the wealthiest land on earth, if the millions suffer and cry, And all but the happy selfish...
