THE "DAILY TELEGRAPH" ON OUR PRUSSIAN PREMIER. HERR VON HOLMAN COPIES BISMARCK. MR. HOLMAN AND THE PRESS. IMITATING BISMARCK. PRUSSIAN METHODS IN N.S.W. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 16 November 1918

THE 'DAILY TEtfGRAPH' ON OUR PRUSSIAN PREMIER. HERR VON HOLMAN COPIES 613' MARCK. MR. HOLMAN AND THE PRESS. IMITATING BISMARCK. PRUSSIAN METHODS IN N.S.W The State Premier's scheme for using his control of official information to corrupt) and intimidate the press is not original/. The system he is now trying to introduce into New South Wales was established in Berlin by Prince Bismarck, and was used' by him skilfully and unscrupulously. Hia\ successors followed his example, but with out the ability that he, or rather his gifted lieutenant, Herr von Hplstein, displayed. The method was exactly that now used by Mr. Holman, who seems to bis slavishly copying bis Prussian model. Official' in formation was given out by the . Press Bureau in the WilhelmstrasseV but the amount doled out to the newspaper repre sentatives was graduated according to the official view of the attitude of the news papers towards the Government. If a newspaper was distinguished by the ser-/ vility of its leading a...

AMALGAMATED RAILWAY AND TRAMWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 16 November 1918

AMALGAMATED RAILWAY AND TRAMWAY. The Executive, at its meeting on Satur day last, formulated a number of reso lutions for the Labor Conference agenda. Messrs. McMinn, Thompson, and Buckley were appointed to confer with the Rail way Workers' Industry Branch. A.W.U., in regard to. a line of demarcation for or ganising. It was resolved to request the Government to appoint a Royal Commis sion of a non-legal character to ' in quire into the administration of the railways and tramways. Reports from the country indicated a revival of indus try in union affairs, and are hopeful for the future.- Some discussion took place on the pamphlet issued by the Board of Trade, relating to the self-government of industry. The opinion was expressed that the local proposals, claimed as the 'counterpart' of the Whitely Report, were a fraud and a snare for workers, and de signed in the interests of bogus unions. The general secretary reported on busi ness done at the Labor Council regarding the Government'...

PEACE AND REVOLUTION. A.R. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 16 November 1918

PEACE AND REVOLUTION. * While the cable news is too fragmentary and too contradictory at present' to be ?very certain about any details, two or tliree facts concerning the European Cen tral Powers seem to be beyond doubt. The first is, that peace has come too late to avert revolution, or it might be more correct to say that the revolutionary men ace compelled these Powers to sue for I peace. The second and most vital fact ?is, that the present revolutions are not merely political, as were many past revo lutions, but- go right down to bedrock economic conditions. A third notable fact is, that the movement is distinctly Re publican in character in every State af fected. Kaieers, Kings, Princes and Grand Dukes have all received sudden notice to quit, and doubtless their lands and palaces and huge fortunes will go back to the public from whom they have been stolen or cajoled all through the past ages. It mu3t not be supposed that these dras tic, far-reaching changes are entirely due to ...

PREPARING FOR—? WHAT DOES AMERICA WANT A HUGS FLEET FOR? TOKIO, 2/11/'18. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 16 November 1918

PREPARING FOR — ? WHAT DOES AMERICA WANT A HUGE FLEET FOR? TOKIO, 2/H/'18. ' The spectacle of America's democratic achievement and her transformation in 18 months from a pacifist nation to an ef-. ficient war Power is potently influencing Japan. Together with the downfall of Ger man militarism, it will affect the national policy, leading to an extension of political liberties; but the idea of aj League of Nations has received no supw port. Count Okuma says that peace is now in! sight, but this does not guarantee the per-: manent peace of the world. America mayj be in a position to dictate a peace ol righteousness, but Japan must be ever on, her guard and prepared for war or peace. The 'Asahi,' marvelling at the achieve ments of America's armies, discusses thai abolition of the idol of militarists — the' conscription system; whilst another jour-: nal regards the expansion of the American.' navy as paradoxical, and asks why America aims at becoming the greatest naval Power of the worl...

IF I WERE KING. Ir I were king, Most any little king in Germany, Where rises now the Boche democracy And courtiers came to me and whispered. 'Sire, We've lost the war, the fat is in the fire,' Would I then wait, when all things -were kaput, The dull thud of the democratic boot? No, sir, I'd certainly do no such tiling If I were king. If I were king1, And flying stones made. havoc of the glass Of my front windows, would I be .an ass? Would I gird on my forefathers' great sword . ? ! And face the canaille? No, sir, by thfj Lord! Would I within my blazing palace die? . . : No, I would not. Would I the mob. defy? Not on your life, there'd be no posturing If I were king. If I were king, And all my subjects, fired with beer and hate, Said, 'You old blighter, you must abdi cate,' Would I reply, 'I hold by right divine My crown, my missus, jewels, clothes, and wine, I will not to you baseborn rabble bow,** Would I say that, with head erect?

LEAGUE MEETINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 16 November 1918

LEAGUE MEETINGS. The usual weekly meeting of 'the Wbol-^ lahra Branch of the A.L.P. was held att the League Rooms, 111 Hargreave-street, Padding ton, on Monday evening, the 41b, inst. ? The president (Mr. J. P. Dannaher) oc cupied the chair, there being a good at-: tendance of members. A resolution was adopted condemning the economy, preached, and the extravagance practised, by the Holman Government in the squan-i dering of the taxpayers' money on Mr.; Beeby's tour to America, together with' the building of a luxurious touring car,; at an enormous expense, for the Commis sioner of Railway's joy-rides, whilst the working-class community have to should der the intolerable burden of extra taxa tion in increased railway freights and tram fares.

SYDNEY MUNICIPAL COUNCIL ELECTIONS. APPEAL FOR FUNDS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 16 November 1918

SYDNEY MUNICIPAL COUNCIL ELECTIONS. APPEAL FOR FUNDS. Labor is making a supreme effort, in the interests of the citizens, to capture the Sydney Municipal Council. The 'National' machine, with all its re sources of money, organisation, and vested interests, is in the field in oaler that the direction of Sydney's affairs may still, re main in the despoiling and extorting hands of its representatives. A change is needed. A progressive and democratic policy is required if Sydney is to take pride of place amongst the cities of the world. With gas monopolies, ferfy monopolies, food distributing monopolies, and every sort and condition of boodling practices thriving unchecked, there is one, antidote only, and that is LABOR IN POWER, which will result in the distribu tion of food supplies through municipally owned markets and depots; the lighting of Sydney's homes with municipal gas and electric light at cost, in lieu of exorbitant monopoly prices; the municipal ferries and the passing of t...

FREE SPEECH. MR. HALL'S TWO VOICES. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 16 November 1918

FREE SPEECH. MR. HALL'S TWO VOICES. If it were not so tragic, it would be amusing to observe the gyrations of that 'would-be-if-I-could-be' strong man, David Robert Hall, Attorney-General and sundry other things in the 'Cashional' Government. Just after the smashing de feat of the last referendum, when the con ecriptionists were engaged in the pleasant and easy pastime of beating their joss, 'Little Davy' waxed indignant at the re strictions imposed by Hughes on free speech. In the course of a press state ment, Mr. Hall made some interesting disclosures as to the alleged understand ings arrived ' at ' during a meeting with Hughes, at which J. C. Watson, H. La mpnd, Holman, and other soolers were present. It was well understood that this maudlin 'sympathy' with the demand for free speech was merely a case of 'Codlin's your friend, not Short.' This is now Verified, by 'the action of Holman, Hall and Co. in forcing througn a Sedition Bill, which is more tyrannical and drastic than ever...

AUSTRALIA'S STORY DAILIES [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 16 November 1918

AUSTRALIA'S TORY DAILIES The cables which have been transmitted to the Tory papers from overseas have been for the most part a mass of contra dictions and inconsistencies, particularly those which purport to give some idea of the development of working-class move ments, whether in Allied or enemy coun tries. The accounts of actual military opera tions which are permitted publicity may be as nearly accurate as the conduct of the war will permit; but the history of social development, as published, is so consistently contradictory that only by the exercise of considerable care and in genuity can one arrive at anything like a fair appreciation of the facts. The events which have taken place in Russia since the overthrow of the mon archy have been misrepresented in an obviously atrocious fashion, and in nearly every issue 'The Worker' has had to draw attention to the manner in which the cabled 'news,' as it appears, is made to contradict itself. Sometimes the cables get themselves into ...

CO-OPERATIVE TRADING. A QUESTION FOR THE LABOR MOVEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 16 November 1918

COOPERATIVE TRADING. A QUESTION FOR THE LABOR MOVEMENT. An interesting article, written by C. Coupe, for the purpose of influencing working1 men and women to support the Co-operative Store, established by the Victorian Socialist Party, has recently come to hand, and it lays stress upon the necessity for an extension of co-operative trading by the workers to the fullest pos sible extent until such time as social peace shall be achieved by the utter defeat of the 'black hand forces' of Capitalism, and the establishment of Socialism. Whilst striving for the advent of Soci alism (says the writer), and whilst seek ing to promote working-class solidarity, may we not, at the same time as the struggle for existence inherent in the pre sent social system compels us to seek in creased wages, seek also to make our hard-earned wages 'go as far as possible'? Surely, there can be only one answer, and that an affirmative. Then let us consider co-operative trad ing as a means to that end. Co-operat...

"AUSTRALIA'S SHARE IN THE WAR." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 16 November 1918

'AUSTRALIA'S SHARE IN THE WAR.' Laborites who wish to be up-to-date should at once make sure of getting a copy of the above little pamphlet, which is selling fast, and will be of historic value when it is out of print. It is an eye opener on our financial commitments, and shows how the workers are shouldering the rich man's burden. Order through your League at half-a-crown a dozen, or if you can't shake up a lazy secretary write direct yourself (threepence per copy, cash or stamps with order) to P.C.

HOLMAN SLANDERS LABOR AGAIN [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 16 November 1918

HOLMAN SLANDERS LABOR AGAIN Talking at Queanbeyan the other night, Premier Holman gave yet another exhibi tion of the unscrupulous nature of what serves him for a political mind. After spreading himself on the necessity of increased production which would be entailed in Australia by war expenditure, 'How,' he asked, 'could this country pro gress if the policy of sabotage were al lowed to hold sway with a section calling themselves the Labor Party?' Now, every Labor man knows that sabotage neither is, nor ever has been, the policy of Australian Labor. Holman knew he was implying a lie when he more than suggested that the Labor Party had ever countenanced sabo tage. He knew that the A.L.P. stood, and stands, for political action; yet he had no scruple against misleading any among his hearers who might be as ignorant as he supposed them to be. Since the day when he openly apos tatised to the side of the capitalists, Hol man has sunk lower and lower, almost daily. He may regard flagrant...

GERMANY AND RUSSIA. A REMARKABLE PARALLEL. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 16 November 1918

GERMANY AND RUSSIA.. : A REMARKABLE PARALLEL. l. When the Russian revolutionaries forced Czar Nicholas Romanoff to abdi cate, Prince Lyoff was appointed Premier.; When the German people forced Kaiser Wilhelm Hohenzollern to abdicate, Prince Max was put in charge as Chancellor. 2. When the Russian revolution had time to get a footing, Prince Lyoff stepped down, making way for Kerensky, an. elo quent but weak Socialist working with the middle-class capitalists. . When the Kaiser finally cleared off the stage, Prince Max made way for Ebert as Chancellor. Ebert is a member of the Majority Socialist Party led by Scheider man, which stands in with the middle-class capitalists of that country. : * * * 3.

A CAPATILISTIC NEWSPAPER'S ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 16 November 1918

A CAPATILISTIC NEWSPAPER'S ADVICE. When the war is over some of the bel ligerent nations will be hopelessly bank rupt, and national debts will have to be written down remorselessly, either by ar rangements with the creditors or by re volutionary means. In Austria-Hungary people will not go on hopelessly and end lessly paying interest on the cost of a war which most of them did not want If the Governments of the Central Powers do not relieve the people of much, if not all, of their debts the people will relieve themselves of their Governments, and wipe the slate clean by means '' of revolution. But, as a matter of fact, the Governments of ALL BELLIGERENT COUNTRIES will find it to their interest to make a bonfire of the huge accumula tion of paper money, war bonds, and other promises to pay.— 'Evening News.'

THE MONARO FIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 16 November 1918

THE M0NAR0 FIGHT. Since the opening of the campaign last week, Mr. John Bailey, the selected and endorsed Labor candidate, has visited Jindabyne, Adaminaby, Numer alla, and Berridale. He met with splendid receptions everywhere, the ' meetings at Jindabyne, Adaminaby, and Numeralla being particularly large and enthusiastic. Labor is sure of very substantial ma jorities in these portions of the electorate. He left Cooma for Dalgety, Nimita bel, Holt'a Flat, Bibbenluke, Cath cart, - and the southern end of the electorate. He will return on Sunday next, en route to Jerangle and the Quean beyan and Braldwood portions of the electorate. Mr. Dooley addressed one of the largest meetings ever held in Cooma on Saturday night last. He dealt with the Labor policy generally, and stated that any man who did not vote solidly for the Labor candidate went back on the principles that their member advocated for the last thirty years. , Mr. Hogan, of Mr. Miller's committee, explained Mr. Miller's* reti...

"THE LABOR NEWS." To Secretaries of Branches and Affiliated Unions. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 16 November 1918

'THE LABOR NEWS.' To Secretaries of Branches and Affiliated Unions. Ladies and Gentlemen, I have to inform you that 'The Labor News' has been registered for transmis sion by post, and will henceforth be is sued regularly every week. Some branches have taken up the work of 'en rolling subscribers with enthusiasm, and are doing good work, but a very large* number have done very little, and some have done nothing. It is up to all to do their bit, as there is much need for more Labor journalism, and a very wide scope for its operations. The copies so far sent to you have consisted of 12 pages, but henceforth will only comprise eight pages, as was originally . intended. It cannot be too strongly emphasised that the x-igid and grossly unfair political censorship operates to pre vent much useful and necessary in formation being published. This cen sorship is tolerated by the big dailies because it does not hurt them very much. The lying and distorted news and com ments published by them ju...

WAR FINANCE. WHO IS PAYING? [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 16 November 1918

WAR FINANCE, WHO IS PAYING? Whilst -Mr. Moneybug and Mrs. ~r tail loom large in war loan lists and are held up for admiration by the plute press and extolled as desirable objects for emu lation on the part of the common garden order of society, it never seems to dawn upon them that the plain, ordinary people are doing practically the whole of the paying. How do the Napoleon's of Fi nance manage affairs? Duties are levied, not according to the taxpayer's ability to pay, or according to a sounder theory, but heavy taxes are imposed, on whom pray? — the arrogant wealthy who are waxing fat on the profiteering of the war games — not on your life! The duties go on to Bill Bowyang's bit of 'bacco, or glass of beer when he leaves his toil hot and thirsty; mum and the kids' all too rare picture show admission; on the ado lescent youth's letter to his ladylove; and on the shop girl's tram fare. It was sworn in evidence before the Board of Trade last week that an average working girl's tram fa...
