FROM THE GALLERY. IMPRESSIONS OF A PARLIAMENTARY VISITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 14 July 1910
I r ri u ivi ihe UALLtKT. IMPRESSIONS OF A PARLIAMENTARY VISITOR. Upon entering N.S.W. Parliament House, one of the first things to strike a person is the bitter tone and air of vindictiveness between some of tlie Government and Op position members. Even, unassuming members like the newly-elected Mr. Mina han, who is tlie very embodiment of modesty, glares wildly across the chamber and shouts a protest against some Minis trialists' callous remarks. And at the first opportunity the member for Belmore poured out an impassioned address anent several glaring injustices. Mr. Cochran, for Darling Harbor, also wears a vicious, not to say dangerous ex pression, and did not fail to 'speak his mind' when a chance occurred. One of the most polished speakers in the House is Sir J. Graham, who, early in this session, was made use of by his chief to endeavor to smooth over sundry Minis terial offences. - While I was there he in cautiously ventured to mention the fatal 13th of April, which caused ...

THE "PILLAGER" SCRUB. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 14 July 1910
THE ' PILLAGEI? ' SCRUB. NCE upon a time, in this State, the polite way of consigning an enemy to Tophet was to tell him to go to Booli gal. Nowadays the phrase runs, 'Go to Pilliga Scrub.' Of course, our present Ministers of the Crown, being mere con ventional creatures of vested interests, and consequently incapable of expressing an original opinion on any subject, in any language, do not use this picturesque form of consignment note, except, perhaps, in private. _ On the contrary, they advertise Pilliga as a sort of settlers' paradise, and i are doing their level best to induce selec tors to take up land on the shores of the ' Shining River.' The only shining river in the vicinity of the Big Scrub is the Namoi, and it only shines with the shine of a chain of dry waterhoies, except in the brief flood season, when it becomes a huge mud-colored octopus stretching forth its shining arms and gathering cattle and sheep and dingoes and homesteads and fences into its mights* maw. To be s...
THE FARM WORKER. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 14 July 1910
THE FARM WORKER. SYDNEY ' Evening News ' the other day made a frantic appeal, not on behalf of the farm worker, who wants it badly enough, but of his master: It must be remembered that the ma ! jority of Australian farmers are them ! selves only struggling for existence, and that a few bad seasons would wipe them out. Thus they cannot be expected to pay any excessive wage that might pos j sibly be imposed by an arbitration court | or wages board. That implies that wages boards are in the habit of imposing excessive wages. It would be interesting to know where th6 ' News ' finds its poor, oppressed farmer. No doubt he is fairly numerous among the rack-rented tenants in the old-settled dis tricts, but they do not try to pay wages as i a rule. Perhaps the type may be found j pretty well represented among the people j who have been so freely paying from £5 j to £10 an acre for Premier Wade's closer j settlement farms. We know that most of : them were quite unimproved except for 1 fencin...
THE SENTIMENTAL STANDPOINT. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 14 July 1910
M ♦ ♦ M THE SENTIMENTAL STANDPOINT. AUSTRALIA, in her aspirations to be ; able to at least strike a blow in her : own defence in case of invasion, or attempted invasion, has had to listen to ; some weird lecturing. When it wras first : proposed to: institute a system of univer- ! sal military training' certain superior ! people tried to turn the project down by shrieking that it was ' un-British'; it was 'conscription'; it was, in short, every thing that was bad, and not to be thought of. When the idea of an Australian fleet was first propounded the same superior people poured an ocean of contumely upon it, and wanted to knonv what the British | fleet was for, if not to protect Australia. ! Australians, in fact, were urged to be a j nation of loafers and spongers on the ] good old Ma Country in the matter of j naval defence. Also Australians were j solemnly warned that they were treading j the path of disloyalty, and if they didn't j pull up in. time they would assuredly j tumble ov...

TROUBLE THREATENING AT POWLETT. MINERS DISSATISFIED WITH THE RATES OFFERED. Determined Attitude of the Men. Melbourne, Wednesday. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 14 July 1910
TROUBLE THREATENING AT POWLETT. MINERS DISSATISFIED WITH THE RATES OFFERED. Determined Attitude of the Men. Melbourne, W,ednesda3r. . Unless an amicable arrangement is. ar-j rived at, industrial trouble is likely, to en-' , sue at the State coalmine. Mr. Murphy, ; secretary of the Union, came to Melbourne for the purpose of making important in quiries regarding the position . of ; the workers. He says tlie men complain that general manager Broome has not. treated ess them with' a reasonable amount of fair ness, making promises to announce ( the rates, then failing to do so. This has caused irritation which, when the rates were made known, became intensified ow ing to the low price. There is plenty of expert evidence forthcoming amongst the men, showing that the rates made by the manager are unfair, particularly in view of the fact that the coal is in most cases hard to get out. The men are determined to stand out against the rates, and demand one shilling more for hewing, a shilling...

A NORTH COAST INIQUITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 14 July 1910
A NORTH COAST INIQUITY. Alstonville is midwajr between Ballina and Lismore. It is head of the shire of Tintenbar, the chambers being in the town. There are a petty court, bank, two big stores, and a few smaller tradesmen. Everyone is prosperous, and Hindus em ploy white men, which is a disgrace. But to come to mv muttons. The two big stores give their employees practically no holidays, not even the public holidays. The employees begin work at 8 a.m. and leave off every day 9 p.m., 10 p.m., or later. . This is the iniquity referred to above. The member for the district is a Minister of the Crown, and prides himself on being a member of the Government which got the humane Early Closing Act. I think if Tihe~ Worker was to take up our cause some justice might be done us. Our Alstonville Butter Factory is also the only factory on the North . Coast which works on Sunday. As these con ditions exist, amid such signal prosperity, I think I am justified -in classing them as iniquities.— Graft...
