On February 20, 1886, . I succeeded in form ing a Union in Longford (Tas.) Mr H. Molir- and others helped me ; and Ave also Avorked lip branches at CampbelltOAvn, Oat-v lands, and Haihilto n.

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 26 March 1892

The editor said to me the other day in the office, ' Ned, why don't you tell ns something cheerful and amus ing-like to drive away the blues ? I've got' em bad from over-work and worry.' And of course I couldn't do it, because a man can't be funny by trying ; he mig-ht as well try to lift himself up by his own bootlaces, or comb his hair with his hat on, in fact, A man might as well try to lock up his shadow and go out without it, as try to be tunny when he doesn't feel that way. It simpfy can't be done no how. TP TP There are some things that are not usually thought so, that are really very funny. Taney now this Conciliation Bill just under the consideration of Parliament. It doesn't seem funny, because a Bill is generally about as funny as a summons for debt ; but look at it carefully. # # # Capital and Labour, or Employers and Workmen, if you prefer that phrase, are like two huge armies standing face to face in a. long and bitter civil war. They wreck and ruin the whole country w...

A SERMON [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 26 March 1892

A SERMON, [By Demos.] Brethren, — One of the most deplorable features in the civilization of the nineteenth century is the ignorance displayed both by workers and governments of the first prin ciples of j ustice . Mankind as a whole, admit in the abstract the right of all living humanity to live, also admitting that every man who lives should work. Yet here right in this little island continent we find men and women clamouring for work, begging for bread. Were the Governments of these colonies based on justice such an anomaly would be impossible. Our rulers prate about justice, yet they deny it by their actions and legal enactments. What idea of justice has the man who informs workless workers that they must work for half a loaf if they cannot get a whole loaf ? What they earn or what they need is of no account. The mockery of life to a helpless, childless, half fed man ; the double misery of the married, workless, cashless, oftimes homeless father. Life we call it. Death is happine...

If you get a good wife, Which is hard I confess, ; There's not any danger — :;/ ..' Your life will be blest. -,.'.' Is marriage a failure ?

MELBOURNE MOVEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 2 April 1892

MELBOURNE MOVEMENTS . ? . ? ? ? % ? [By T.W.] Tbe._ principal item here, so far as the Press is concerned, is the Windsor tragedy, and it is astonishing the amount of sensa tionalism that has been introduced by the rival papers in their attempt, to cater to the morbid feelings of a section of the commu nity, who would, no doubt, be delighted to see someone tortured just to gratify what they are pleased to call, Justice, but which in reality is only a desire to - see someone suffer (guilty or innocent), so that the majesty' of the law (class law at present) is vindicated. If. the Press here would only take half the interest in ' the distressing situation of the poor people, and advocate as persistently and as strongly for, the powers that be to take some steps tor relieve the present difficulty, and keep useful people alive' as they do to 'hunt this Williams and others to the gallows, they would do the country some good. The law officers of the State are,, no doubt, quite competent t...

THE BARCOO ELECTION [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 2 April 1892

THE BARCOO ELECTION A revolt and nothing less ! A revolt against Territorialism ; against the whole system of land monox^oly and black labor slavedom in . Queensland is the election of Tom Ryan, late chairman of the Strike Committee of the . Queensland Bush Unions, to the Parliament of Queensland ; and the capitalistic press of the colonies know it. If the magnificent figures of Mr Ryan's majority left any doubts ' , upon the matter they have been removed by the ominous silence which pervades the Aus tralian press on the signal victory obtained by the Labor Party in the north of Queens land. If the reverse had been the result the exultant cry of victoiy would have resounded throughout the length and breadth of Aus tralia, and its echo would have been wafted over the sea to the Tory press of Eng land. But the Australian press have not, so far as I can see, even, attempted to'*' explain away the defeat of monopoly, or to inspire the dis-spirited with hope. ? s * # * ? ? ? . Those who ...

NEW ZEALAND. DISCOMFITURE OF THE USURERS AND LAND SHARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 2 April 1892

NEW ZEALAND DISCOMFITURE OF THE USURERS AND LAND SHARKS. The 'D.T.' and- other capitalistic rags howl about capital leaving the country owing to the big strike and the advent of the Labor Party into Parliament. We smile as we quote from the ' Tasmanian Democrat' the following letter f rom Maoriland : — ' ' You ask me to tell you -about the Government. Well, I can assure you the working*, classes are so busy grinning that they can't chew, tobacco — the juice runs down .their chins. One sempiternal smile illumines the face of Labor. The Government seem to do every thing that, were they our private and par ticular ' friends, we should most urgently re quest them to do. They have put on a land and income tax that, for the first time in the weary history of this world, has apportioned the burden of taxation with some degree of justice. Just one instance of how the thing works : Bell, who contested the Wellington election with M 'Lean, paid under the pro perty tax £2,000; under the Land a...

THE ROSEHILL RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 2 April 1892

THE ROSEHILL RAILWAY ? * — - ? [By Abthur Rae.1 A Bill was introduced into the Assembly two or' three weeks ago to enable a man . named Simpson to construct a railway, being* a continuation of the present Rosehill rail way for about twelve miles. The Bill was read a second time ; but the Democratic members rolled up in full force when the Bill was in committee, and, by de feating the first clause, squashed the measure altogether. -* * * Since that was done, the Labor party, who voted solidly against this attempt to H create another monopoly, and really caused M the rejection of the measure, have been m. subjected to a perfect torrent of abuse ? by the capitalistic Press of the city ; ? and. a day or two ago some interested indi- ' ? vidual sent all those who helped, to defeat I the Bill an anonymous circular abusing them I for what it termed their ' crowning- act of I folly.'' ? *- * * I Replies in defence have been sent to nearly ? allthe city newspapers ; but all of them have I re...

POLITICAL NOTES [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 2 April 1892

POLITICAL NOTES By Hank Morgan. When the Military Estimates were under discussion, a most scandalous state of things was shown in regard to the way in which money has been squandered in ever-increas ing sums on the ' ' Grlory, G-litter, and G-un- , powder Brigade.' - Incompetent officers, red-ochre riflemen, highly paid incapables away on sick-leave, half their time on fall -pa.y ; powder maga zines with roofs that leaked and doors that swelled till they wouldn't shut. Poorly-paid privates and swell- Imperial officers that knew little and cared less for the country they were supposed to serve and defend; More money spent with less results every year. Such . is the state of our boasted Defence Force. The retrenchers, backed up by all the Labor members, except two mis -guided indi viduals, blocked this little game ' the other night when they indignantly struck £50, 000 off the 'fire-low and lay 'em out' party of bayonets and bluster. The workers' representatives weren't likely to forg...

AUSTRALIAN SLAVERY [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 2 April 1892

AUSTRALIAN SLAVERY Parliaments in Queensland rim five years, instead of three, unless a dis solution takes place sooner. East year an, Act was- 'passed to inake all future Parliaments of three 'years duration, so as to bring, Banaland into . line with, all the other colonies. Therefore, ,, the. . ;last , : five-year. Par liament: is* -now-1 on- its' last legs ; and, after*'this ,. coming session, will expire in. a few months by lapse of time unless a dissolution is sooner forced. Let us look at the facts of the Black Labor Question in Queensland, and the position in which the Parliament and Ministry of Queensland stand in relation to that question. The employment of kanaka1 labor - in the sugai1 industry of that colony has been a burning question for years, and the terrible abuses which grew up round the recruiting business among the Islands, known as 'black- birding,' and in various other ways, at length led to a determined oppo sition to its continuance.1-,.
