IN MEMORIAM. (C.V.L) [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 16 November 1918

IN MEMORIAM. (C.V.I.) Ring out, wild bells, to the wide sky, The flying cloud, the frosty light; The year is dying in the night; Ring out, wild bells, and let him die Ring out the old, ring in the new. Ring,, happy bells, across the 6now;' The year is going, let him go; . ; . Ring out the false, ring in the true Ring out the grief that saps the mind, * For those that here we see no more; Ring out the feud of rich and poor, Ring in redress to all mankind. Ring out a slowly dying cause, And ancient forms of party strife;' Ring in the nobler modes of life. With sweeter manners, purer laws. Ring out the want, the care, the sin, The faithless coldness of the times; ? Ring out, ring out, my mournful rhyme* But ring the fuller minstrel in. Ring out false pride in place and bloo* . The civic slander and the spite; Ring in the love of truth and right, Ring in the common love of good. . Ring out old shapes of foul disease; Ring out the narrowing lust of gold; Ring1 out the thousand wars of 61...

THE POST OFFICE BELLS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 16 November 1918

THE POST OFFICE BELLS. (By CECIL TURNER.) The brlle, which, of all others, may most fitly clair:- to bt the belj.s of New «omh Wales, were rung on the Sth iijst. for the second lime since they were hung, and reminds us that they are inscribed with Tennyson's words: — 'Ring out the old, ring In the new, Ring- out the false, ring in the true.' I append a few ef the verses of that transcendent poem, 'In Memoriam,' from its 106th canto, in the hope that you will republish it in your columns. Written apparently at the time of a new year, it refers first to the dying year, then to the expression of personal loss and grief which comes to us all through the death of our loved ones, and thence to the clarion appeal: — : 'Ring out the feud of rich and poor, Ring in redress to all mankind.' Then, to the things most needed to ac complish that noble end, first the 'dying cause' of the 'feud of rich and poor,' our economic system and its chief support and mainstay 'party strife,' pleading for 'no...

CHILDREN ON DAIRY FARMS. INTERSTATE COMMISSION'S REMARKS. A RUN OF "IFS." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 16 November 1918

CHILDREN ON DAIRY FARMS. INTERSTATE COMMISSION'S , REMARKS. A RUN OF 'IFS.' In its report on the prices of farm pro duce the Interstate Commission has some thing to say regarding child labor on dairy farms. But any value its remarks might have had is negatived by the hypothetical form in which they are cast. 'If,' it says, 'the public insist on cheap butter and other farm products, and if that cheapness ' can be obtained only through the employment of young child ren, the blame for harsh usage does not rest solely upon parents or employees.' As somebody in. Shakespeare 'says, there is much virtue in 'If,' so let'a few more$e added to those of the Commission. If 'the public insist «n cheap butter,' their insist ence has' quaint result'. ... In Sydney metropolitan area house-: holders who don't relish mere cow-oil necessarily have their butter delivered at the door. And there they pay the 'cheap1* price of J/8 per lb. for it. . If, with their product retailed at 1/8; dairy farmers are...

THE HIGHENDEN BEER STRIKE. HOW THE LAW-AND-ORDER CROWD OUT-HUNNED THE HUNS. WORKERS THREATENED WITH DEATH. WORKERS' WIVES KICKED IN THE STREETS. HOW THE GREAT DAY ? LIE NEWSPAPERS SUPPRESS THE TRUTH ABOUT 'NATIONALIST' HOOLIGANS A NO HOW A LABOR GOVERNMENT STRAIGHTENS THINGS UP. (By ONE WHO WAS THERE.) Some little lime ago we read among our Interstate telegraphic news that the workers of Hughenden, a far-western pastoral town in Queensland, were having a 'beer strike.' The ordinary reader naturally thought that the thirsty workers -vere kicking against rising* prices, and the incident was soon dismissed from their minds. The actual facts are extremely interest ing, as showing the utter callousness and lawless brutality of the employing class when their own financial interests are at stake. It also throws a side-light on the utterly biased and unreliable character of our daily newspaper press, which care fully abstained from letting the public know the truth about the discreditable c...

SOCIALISM IN OUR TIME. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 16 November 1918

SOCIALISM IN OUR TIME. A few years ago to advocate 'Socialism in our time' was denounced and ridiculed as the final folly of demented demagogues, 'it might be all very well in another five hundred years when men have become thoroughly civilised and enlightened,' said the wise old Tory editors of the infallible organs of fat and fatuousness; 'but,' said they, with the stupendous wisdom of a hundred Solomons, 'it's against human nature as at present constituted, and won't work now!' Well, if those old whiskered wisehcads ' are still on deck, they will notice that this Socialistic system has been working over a year in Russia in spite of foreign enemies and a numerous brood of home-grown traitors.- It is now getting an active start in Austria, Hungary, Bulgaria, and right through the late mighty Empire of Germany, whose Kaisers, Kings and Dukes are scurrying for shelter like frightened rabbits. It also appears that the establishment of Socialist Republics In Berlin, Bavaria, Saxony, Wu...

THE BURRANGONG (YOUNG) SEAT. LAMBING FLAT. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 16 November 1918

THE BURRANGONG (YOUNG) SEAT. The Burrangong District Council of the F. and S. Association on Saturday last met at Young and selected Mr. Luke R, Tierney as their candidate at the next State elec tions. The Burrangong National Associa tion also met at Young a few weeks back, with Mr. Holman as chairman, and also j selected Mr. John Taylor, Mayor of Grenfell, j as their candidate for the coming elections, i According to the dust that is being raised j by the two abovenamed bodies one would imagine that we are going to have a three cornered contest in Burrangong, but when we come to review the 'framing up' that took place prior to the last State elections, the case assumes a different aspect. Mr. Trethowan, who defeated Mr. Tierney by a very naiTow majority at the last F. and S. selection ballot, and, by the way, pledged by his party to Upper House abo lition, swallowed his principles for a seat in the much despised institution, in order to give way to Mr. Burgess, who also be trayed h...

WORKERS' UNION AND THE BOSSES UNION. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 16 November 1918

WORKERS' UNION AND THE BOSSES UNION. In the New South Wales Assembly on November 6 Mr. Davidson (.Cobar) aBked. the Premier if it were the intention of the Government to advise the Employers' Federation that the use of its funds for political purposes was illegal in the same way as the intimation had been made to the trades unions of the State. Premier Holman: 'There is absolutely no prohibition of any kind. If the unions wish to raise money for political purposes they can do so. The only thing they can not do is to take the money out of the subscriptions of members.' The Premier's statement was a good ex ample of the sort of bluff which serves in Parliament as an answer to an incon venient question. It takest no mental acuteness to perceive that a union's money, being the property of its mem bers, is just on the same basis as the funds of the Employers' Federation. The law permits the use of the latter for political purposes and prohibits the use of the former. Tet, Holman has the ...

' Extracts from that document, published in the daily press,- form instructive matter for the consideration of Labor. The Federation's President makes no bones about expressing his hostility to the One * Big Union movement. His remarks on that subject are thus quoted by Syd ney 'D.T.' and 'S:M. Herald': — 'For many years past there had existed in the ranks of official trade unionism a section which promulgated the ideal of a universal and perfected organisation of workers. There had therefore ' been launched the ambitious scheme for the One Big Union. There was no equivoca tion on the part of the Labor leaders.

GREAT BRITAIN WILL TRY NEW DEMOCRACY. SIX MILLION NEW VOTES AT NEXT ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 16 November 1918

GREAT BRITAIN WILL TRY NEW DEMOCRACY. SfX MfLLION NEW VOTES AT NEXT ELECTION. A measure which doubles at a stroke the parliamentary electorate, enfranchises six million women, provides for absent (and even proxy) voting by three million sol diers and sailors, redistributes seven hundred parliamentary seats, introduces a scheme of. proportional representation^ paves the way for a new balance of party forces, and, in short, throws open the floodgate for democracy in a great con servative nation — such is the British 'Re- presentation of the People' Act, which received the royal assent on February 6 last. Two years of war brought the advocates of woman's suffrage an advantage which no amount of agitation had ever won for them, namely, the backing: of the Govern ment; and a few months more carried their cause to a victorious conclusion which could hardly have been reached in a full decade of peace. Now that men were to have the suffrage as persons, it was more than ever difficult to wit...

SELECTIONS FROM THE WRITINGS OF JOHN STUART MILL. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 16 November 1918

SELECTIONS FROM THE WRITINGS OF JOHN STUART MILL. 1 He who knows only his own side of Uie Case, knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them; but, if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the op posite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion. If the cul tivation of the understanding consists in one thing more than in another, it is surely in learning the grounds of one's own opinions. DISCUSSION. Man is capable of rectifying his mis takes by discussion and experience. Not by experience alone. There must be dis cussion to show how experience is to be interpreted. Wrong opinions and prac tices gradually yield to fact and argu ment; but facts and arguments, to pro duce any effect on the mind, must be brought before it. The whole strength and value, then, of human judgment, depend ing on the one property, that it can be set right when it is wrong, reliance can be placed on i...

THE QUESTION OF THE MOMENT ▼- .... _ . . . ? ? ' ? ?????'?? CAPITALISTIC SYSTEM MUST BE ABOLISHED. It has been said that the only question of the moment is 'the winning of the war.' However true this may be, and however often it is said when questions as to the future crop up, does not take away the im portance of the questions that are to arise after the war is over. Neither should the repetition of the statement be allowed to side-track these most vitaJ questions. Go ing back to the status quo ante is im possible, and no one with brains would ever think of going 'back to pre-war con ditions after the conclusion of the war.

An American millionaire would give morev than that for a picture. He compares Hughes to Joseph Chamberlain.)
