AUSTRALIAN POLITICAL LABOR EXECUTIVE. STATEMENT RE BALLOT ON PERTH CONFERENCE RESOLUTIONS. MELBOURNE, VICTORIA. ? That this Executive, on behalf of the industrially and politically organised workers of Australia, desires to record its pleasure at the prospects of an early ces sation of hostilities between the great nations, and the establishment of an early peace on the most immediately practic able basis, and view with satisfaction the knowledge that the adoption of Labor's peace policy has brought about this re sult.

THE BLEATING OF BILLY. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 16 November 1918

THE BLEATING OF BflXYr In addition to 'acting the goat' on numberless occasions in ? Australia, Hughes, for the last few months, has been talking on every subject under Heaven to select gatherings of noble lords and ladies in London drawing rooms. He has been showing what General Foch ought to do to win the war, explaining to President Wilson on what lines America should be run, and proffer ing financial advice to the British Chan cellor of the Exchequer. The British are a long-suffering race, and, because no body talked back, Billy was under the mistaken impression that the whole Em pire was stricken dumb with reverential awe at his vast and varied wisdom. At last everybody's patience was exhausted, and the Manchester 'Guardian' reached out a large unfeeling hand, placed Billy across its knee, arid spanked him good and hard with the back files of the Aus tralian Worker. Everybody laughed, and the little Welsh windbag squealed dismally under his, castigation. The re sult of this epi...

NORTHCLIFFE ARITHMETIC. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 23 November 1918

NORTHCUFFE 'ARITHMETIC. Some remarkable 'dope' literature is appearing in the 'Sun' just now about the British election. We are told that there are nine hundred candidates in the field, and of these at least six hundred are pledged supporters of the Coalition Party, led by Lloyd George and Bonar Law. This leaves only three hundred candidates to represent the bash Party, the Labor Party, and the old Liberals, led by Asquith, a statement which looks wildly improbable, especially as we learn from another, and a much more reliable quarter, that the Labor Party alone have four hundred and fifty selected candi dates. But the absurditities of the Northcliffe 'dope' are manifest in the very statement published. There are SIX hundred constituencies in the United Kingdom, and, if only NINE hundred candidates were standing, there must be three hundred uncontested electorates. That half the constituencies in Great Britain should be uncontested is a thing which has never occurred in history, and...

:'~:'?:^ M^ A general meeting of the above League was held on Tuesday, 19th inst.. at Mac donell House, the President, Mr, W. A. Gibbs, presiding, a large attendant* of members being present . Reports show th^at the affairs of the League are progressing, and returned men are freely linking up, which' shows that the activities of the League are being appreciated. . Considerable discussion ensued in con nection, with the action of the Govern ment regarding the manner in which' the services of men in camp, who have volun teered, are being dispensed with, and it was decided that a strong protest be made against the methods adopted. Many men who have enlisted left good jobs to offer their services to their country In its hour of need. Many of these men are married, with families to support, and now when the need for their services no longer exists they are thrown out to shift for themselves as best they may, some with* out even a decent suit of clothes to garb themselves with, and at a t...

JUSTICE TO THE MEXICAN. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 23 November 1918

JUSTICE TO THE MEXICAN. Despite all the attempts of interested parties to stir up trouble with Mexico, oar relations with the republic to the south of us continue friendly, and every day brings added proof of the ease with which goodwill may be established between two nations. In the 'Outlook' of May 31 Daniel Gregory Mason told his readers that our soldiers have been learning things about the average Mexicati person. That individual is by no means the horrible looking thing that the cartoonists of in terventionist x papers used to paint him. 'The soldiers have learned in Mexico,' Mason -tells us, 'that the average Mexican civilian ' ,is^ not a bloodthirsty wretch stained with all the crimes for -which. the bandit Mexican is famous—that the Mexi can civilian, especially the peon and the small farmer, is ordinarily a simple minded, good-humored child of nature.' Those same papers that give you moving picture ideas of the Mexicans fail to tell you about the Government ' wonders worked...

tmmw i^SCONTENL SOME OF THE REASONS FOR THE DISCONTENT IN THE TRAMWAY SERVICE. ' „? . The failure of the Government to honor the pledges given by Mr. Hughes (Prime Minister) on behalf of the New. South Wales Government, and contained in a statement made in the Federal Parlia ment, immediately following the Governor General's Recruiting Conference, viz., 'To restore everybody and everything to t^ie status quo' (pre strike conditions) 'and never mind whether Labor does anything or not' towards recruiting, 'Hansard' 31, pages 4107-8. Had that pledge been observed all unions would have been re-registered, about 100 victimised men would have been restored to their positions, the seniority list would revert to its old posi tion, and the harmony which the Governor General desired' could have, to a great ex tent, been restored.

THE COMING PEACE. Mr. P. C. Evans, -General Secretary of the Australian Labor Party, states: — Now that the armistice has been ^signed and the way opened for the securing1 of a permanent peace, there dawns the possi bility of sanity reasserting itself, and the people of Australia will perhaps realise that this first instalment of peace has been secured by .negotiation. No matter what the particular terms or conditions may be, the great outstanding' -fact is that hostilities have ceased, the awful slaughter has been stayed, and in its place men -have assembled, round the table to talk and negotiate the terms of peace. The leaders of the great Austra lian Labor Party feel that had not -base poetical ipart^' Intrigues and hrtereets in-?; tervened, their counsels would have nreVr ' vailed long -ago, and the lives, of million^ of 'human beings have .been spared andr, '? much ? devastation and despoliation pre vented.

'THIRST FOR' PUBLICITY. 'CONTEMPTUOUSLY IGNORES SIR JOSEPH COOK. ?*When Mr. Hughes arrived in England he was afraid he 'would be regarded by the public and the press as a failure, and that he would be virtually ignored. He was afraid that he wpuld find the repu tation he had so miraculously achieved on his previous visit two years ago^ as^ a great statesman fit to lead the Empire had been blotted out by his lamentable record in Australia during the two year3l interval between his visits. Immediately after »his arrival in London he began a series of provocative speeches, in order to direct attention to himself and aseertfvn where he stood. He found, to his delight, that' the English public for the most part were prepared to accept him at the old valuation.

LABOR LEAGUE FOR THE YOUNC. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 23 November 1918

A LABOR LEAGUE FOR THE TOUNC. Sir, — During the past month corres pondents to the Sydney 'Worker' have been emphasising and advocating the ne cessity of a league to teach boys to under stand social and industrial problems. This suggestion is certainly a very excellent one, and it should be given very serious consideration by all Laborites. Of course we all know what humbug is rammed down the youngster's throat at school, and that his knowledge of the Labor Move ment on leaving school is not worth a farthing. The A.L.P. must step in where the schools^have failed. It such is started I am confident the boys would respond in great numbers. When the lad is old enough to enter the various A.L.P., Leagues he would have a fair knowledge of the situation to -learn, but find the debates at the Labor Leagues and the text books much 'too hard for -his understanding-. I might tell you that my boyhood was passed in complete ignorance of the war be tween Capital and Labor. When I reached manhood X...
