CENTRAL EMPIRES. TREADING THE PATH OF REVOLUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 9 November 1918

[?] TREADING THE PATH OF REVOLUTION. (By NORMAN R. FREEBERG, m the Queensland 'Worker.') ; The workers and soldiers of. the Central Empires are treading the path that leads to revolution. The propaganda of the Bolsheviks, aided by the anti-war feeling and the war-weariness of the majority of the people, has* had its effect. Each day brines the nvscholocrical moment hearer, and there can be little doubt that the Big Change is not far off. ... So far we have been allowed to know the truth — probably because the revolu tion will affect our^'enettiy' — but there are little straws which show that . there may be an attempt, when the time comes, to crush the German workers and support the Junkers and Capitalists, just as was done — and still is being done — in the case of Russia. ' It is difficult to work the scattered threads into a neat fabric, but the evi dence is overwhelming in support of the' contention that revolution is growing.. Turkey has requested an armistice, and is undoubtedl...

POINTS FOR MONARO ELECTORS. By GREG. McGIRR, M.U* 'WOOL PACKS.' The National Party has allowed the pre sent jute gamble to such an extent that it can be truthfully and accurately de scribed as a hold-up of every man who shears sheep. Vote for Bailey and help to break up the combines which are rob bing the farmers and the workers alike. # # # THE PASTURES PROTECTION BOARDS. J. Bailey stands for the total abolition of the Pastures Protection Boards. These useless institutions are a tax on the small farmers. They favor the large squatters. Their return to the Boards is brought about by men who have 4000 sheep having four votes, while the small man has only one vote. No wonder the small farmer is per secuted and prosecuted by the Rabbit In spectors. ? ? * wny are reiurnca soiaiers ana settlers sons refused even special leases on stock routes?

THE VOTE ON THE SEDITION BILL. (To the Editor, "Labor News.") [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 9 November 1918

THE VOTE ON THE SEDITION BILL (To the Editor, 'Labor News.') Sir,— -In your issue of October 12 last you published the division in the N.S.W. House of Assembly on the second reading of the Sedition Bill. As my name was hot in the list on the side of the NoeB, or members who voted against this nefarious bill; also as you were good enough to add an addendum, that you were prepared to await an explanation from those of the Labor Party whose names were absent from the list before commending them, I will be obliged if you will in fairness to me publish the following explanation for the benefit of those who do not knew me, as any explanation, to those who do know me and know the attitude I have taken towards this measure from the time of its introduction would be superfluous and un necessary. This bill was introduced on August 28 last. I then spoke against the introduc tion of the bilL See 'Hansard,' No. 21, page 995. I again spoke against the sec ond reading.

S0LD1M MUCH PROMISE, LITTLE PERFORMANCE. The so-called Repatriation Bill just passed by the Federal Government re peals ah Act of the same kind passed about two years ago. Th« first Act sev up a Board of Repatriation Trustees, with the Prime Minister as chairman. The new measure simply abolishes the Boani of Trustees and its chairman, and sets in its i place Senal -!? -Millc-n i as chairman, i-.nd a -Repatriation Commission to ]-e ap pointed. After two years' experience and enquiry, after limitless promises to sol diers and dependents, the Government has not incorporated one idea or principle in an Act. The interests of our returned soldiers and soldiers' dependents will be subject to the good will and pleasure of Governments as they come and so. OPINIONS OF GOVERNMENT SUPPORTERS. ?The Bill did not satisfy one 'tiollury member of Parliament who has- taken sr.-y interest in repatriation.

LABOR AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 9 November 1918

LABOR AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT. In the very first Labor platform ever' drawn up in Australia two Municipal planks appeared. The first was a de claration in favor of all Municipal rates being raised from unimproved land values, and the second was an affirma tion of the desirability of the extension of the principle of the community as em ployer, through the medium of local self governing bodies. The Municipal taxa- j tion'of land values is now in force almost ! everywhere, but the socialisation of Municipal institutions has yet to be ac complished. Organised Labor has had to face so many gigantic tasks that some important points have been temporarily overlooked. The natural and logical se quence of the principle of equal civic rights, as expressed by the formula of universal suffrage, ought to have been one qualification and one electoral roll for all purposes, civic and national. Our present Municipal franchise is a relic of the dark ages when property was every thing, and flesh and blo...

IN THE FUTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 9 November 1918

IN THE FUTURE. H. G. Wells, in his latest book, 'Antici- pations of a World Peace.' says: After the war, if the world does not or ganise rapidly for peace, then, as resources accumulate a little, the mechanical genius will get to work on the possibilities of these ideas that have merely been sketched out in this war. We shall get big land ironclads which 'will smash towns. We shall get air offensives— let the ex perienced London reader think of an air raid going on hour after hour, 'day after day — that will really burn out and wreck towns, that will drive people mad by the. thousand. We shall get a very complete cessation of sea transit Even land transit may be enormously hampered by aerial attack. I doubt if any sort, of social order will really be able to stand the strain of fully-worked-out modern war.- We have still, of course, to feel the full shock effects even of. this war. Most of the combatants are going on, as sometimes men who have incurred grave wounds will still go on ...

INGERSOLL'S LAST POEM, [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 9 November 1918

INGERSOLTS LAST POEM. We have no falsehoods to defend—* We want .the facts ; Our force, our thought, we do not spend In vain attacks. And we will never meanly try To save some fair and pleasing lie. We will not willingly be fooled By babies nursed; Our hearts by earnest thought are schooled * To bear the worst; ? ' And we can stand erect and dare Ail things, all facts that really are. We do not bow before a guess, A vague unknown; A senseless force we do not bless, In solemn tone; When evil comes we do not curse Or thank because it is no worse. The jewelled cup of love we drain, ' And friendship's wine Now swiftly flows in every vein With warmth divine'; And so we love, and hope, and dream, That Jn death's sky there is a gleam. We love our fellow man, our kind — ? Wife, child, and friend; To phantoms we are deaf and blind, But we extend The helping hand to the distressed. By lifting others we are blessed. The hands that help are better far Than lipsHhat pray; - Love is the ever-glea...

The necessities of the present moment are:— (1) To create a new atmosphere. (2) To bring to bear new economic factors. ? . The atmosphere. To-day the general j public are quite unaware of any altera I tion in the situation. Business, pleasure, I and amusement, and ordinary interests go ' on quite as usual. 4.

THE NEW ERA. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 9 November 1918

the new mm By J. S. GARDEN. There is a n»W tonception of the eco nomic relationship of the workers to so ciety, to which the whole Organised Labor force is now visibly shaping. Beginning as a vague and indeterminate resentment of what it felt to be the in justice of its lot in life, it was destined by the inherent Qualities of the human mind, which is a, living intelligence and not a machine, to arrive sooner or later at a ciear aeiiniuon oi max injustice, steadily eliminating error and growing more comprehensive in its calculations towards the final emancipation of the worker. ? , The workers have followed their strug gle of human life In every way — Trade Unionism, political rights, the Labor Party. With each enlargement of its campaign the Labor Movement has come back again and again to the primary evil untouched, the essential Injustice still there, and the attainment of satisfying conditions of life always thwarted by some un grasped factor in the problem so far not taken into ...

ARE WE FIT FOR SOCIALISM ? [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 16 November 1918

ARE WE FIT FOR SOCIALISM? Many good earnest LauorlteB, who would like to see Socialism established, ^realising- that it is the only truly sane and fraternal system, are very sceptical as to Jts working satisfactorily. Recognising the greed and self-seeking propensities continually cropping up, even in our own ranks, the petty, mean am bitions, the quarrelling over, trivialities, and the many other frailties and vices ?'jriiich close acquaintance with each other reveal, men grow despondent, and ex claim: 'How could Socialism ever work yrith a crowd like this?' Now this point of view, although very patural, is quite a mistaken one. It is the present capitalistic system which has fostered and intensified these evil pro pensities of human nature, and so vitiated the moral atmosphere that all those or ganisations and institutions seeking to reform and benefit mankind are . them selves tainted with its corruption. ; It is not so much better men and ';kvomen that are required to make Socia...
