ABOUT WAITERS. [Newspaper Article] — People — 23 February 1901
about waiters. While the Professional Musicians' grievances were being discussed at the last meeting of Sydney Labor Council, it was pointed out that many men occupying Government positions, ac cept evening engagements as waiters to the detriment of those men who have to depend on this work f°r a living. Apropos of this, Chas. OUey writes The People : Government employees draw ing their regular good salaries, were taken to fill poste other functions aa waiters etc. at the Commonwealth banquets, to the exclusion of men who were out of work and in need of em ployment. Mr. U' »um van, wnen on the opposition, moved the adjournment of the House for a Tery similar reason. Maybe Mr. O'Sullivan win give now an explanation. Let it be known also that a messenger employed by the Federal Premier, the Hon. E. Barton, P.O., can be_ seen working as waiter at Government House at nearly all functions to the exclusion of others that are in need of work ; and, during the Commonwealth show, one man, wh...
SWEATING ON RAILWAY WORKS. [Newspaper Article] — People — 23 February 1901
SWEATING ON RAIL' . WAY WORKS. According to statements made at the last meeting of Sydney Lebor Council, the Railway Com missioners are paying blackleg rates only to the men working as painters in the service, and in some cases are employing ordinary laDorera co ao painters worK. This is apparently one method of making the railways commer cially successful. It means cheap ness. The Painters' Union re sents it, however, and wants union wages paid on all railway work. One of their delegates asserted that right throughout the railway service there was a huge system of underpaid labor. Tlie Com missioners deny that the painters are being under?aid, but are nevertheless willing to see a depu tation about the matter. In a future issue The People will have a .little to say about this question. ' ? While the bourgeois world of capitalism continues and the bourgeoisie rules, so long are all states neoessarily class States, and all governments class govern ments, serving the purpose and inter...

INDUSTRIAL NOTES [Newspaper Article] — People — 23 February 1901
DTDUSTKIAL NOTES (By OllAR.) . Sydney Wharf-laborers' Union ' is absolutely bossed by its secre tary, Fakir Hughes. Every time a member speaks to a motion. Hughes springs to his feet, and insists on making a speech. He completely ignores the rule pro viding for members to speak once only to the motion. Mr. A. Wilson told the Sydney wharf-laborers that the men on the Hunter River Co.'s Sydney wharf could never be regarded as unionists while they worked for 60 hours a. week for 48s. Devine brought down the house at the wharf-laborers' meeting by coming down heavily on Hughes, M.P., for having advised Sydney men to accept 48s for 60 hours, and Newcastle men 40s for 48 hours. — 0— JJU/UgUW 1U1UU1D nuu wwuwo held a conference last v^eek, to discuss, the demands of the for mer.

The Sydenham Railway Smash. [Newspaper Article] — People — 23 February 1901
Th# Sydenham Railway - - Smash. The People does not belong to tthe sensational - mongering fraternity, but it certainly does hold that the fullest inquiry ahould be made into the late Sydenham catastrophe. And thai - inquiry should not be a ' departmental ' one. It should be conducted by a competent court that would include at least one member from each branch of the Railway Service. The allegations of J. H. Oarruthers should be fully gone' Into — not that The Pboplb would place any particular value on statements made by Mr* Oarruthers— and it should also be considered whether the engine was not altogether too light for the: train it was drawing; Whether the men in charge of trains are not absolutely forced to risk their lives by the harsh ness of the conditions imposed upon them with regard to ' mak ing time ' ; whether the fact of a light engine drawing |i heavy train, and being driven at a high rate of speed, may not have been the real cause of the dimnter ?. whath«r tha vonth wh...
