BIRD'S-EYE VIEW. FROM SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 2 April 1892

BIRD'S-EYE VIEW . ? ♦ ? FROM SYDNEY. ' [By Tui.] We nre at the tag end of the Parlia mentary session, and members -generally are be-nnnino' to look forward to a restful recess. In some respects tho vacation will 3iave been well earned, for notwithstanding the croakings of the capitalistic Press, and the criticisms on the action of the Labor Party on a certain memorable occasion some months ago, a considerable amount of useful legislation has been put through the Par liii/mpnfa.rv mill. Amona' the measures passed in the Lower Chamber, the Trades Disputes and Conciliation Bill — which has been sent to the Legislative Council — is the most noteworthy. To what extent the Bill, - if it passes the other Chamber, will meet the requirements of the Labor Party and answers the purpose it aims at serving, it is difficult .at this stage to foretell. The discovery will ?come in good time. But the fact of the measure being passed gives rise to other ?considerations, and affords a lesson which the...

REFORM NOTES. A True Follower. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 9 April 1892

REFORM NOTES A True Follower. That the personal conduct of Jesus Christ is the best example in history is generally agreed ; and those who continually invite us to 'follow Him' are right so far as precept is concerned, but how about the example ? Do you know anybody, reader, that follows Christ ? *In our judgment the only man or woman who can essay to tread the stony path marked bv the bruised feet of the unselfish Nazarene is he or she who finds the true answer to this question : ' ' What would Christ say of the social problems of our times?' They who with clasped hands stand .gazing at the stars, or who subscribe liberally to build fine churches, or send money to the wild men of Borneo, do not by these acts alone prove that, their feet' are planted in the true path . Wh o is my neigh bor? who is my brother? Has he food and raiment ? These are true questions. Christ never filled an empty stomach or .covered naked, shivering* limbs with tracts and halle lujahs l—Sinmi/ South .

OUR SISTERS' COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 9 April 1892

OUR SISTERS' COLUMN Dear 'Hummer,' — 1 Some of us nre real glad to sco that one of our sex lias written a letter to your paper, and avc are resolved to follow ' Sewing Grill's' example and write just what we think ought to be known. There are four of us ' mates' — as you men call it— and as we term it when the missus isn't within hearing.,. Our missus is not a bad sort, but none of us care a great deal for her style. She has too much style, you know — that's why. ]STo doubt she thinks if she gives her orders in a pleasant tone of voice, ancl always says 'thank you,' she is doing all she possibly can be expected to do — with servants. There is no such thing as confidence between us, and all the time she doesn't forget that we are only servants. Not that we care about that much j Oh dear no 3 But at times one wishes the missus would be ? sort of mates with us, and not be everlastingly reminding us that we are paid to work, work, work, and obey orders,, and look pleasant, .and that its...

A WHITE CABBAGE GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 9 April 1892

A WHITE CABBAGE GARDEN. Hearing that white men were running a market garden near Narandera, and wishing to see if the barbarous white Australians could grow cabbages, carrots, turnips, etc. without the aid of cross-eyed 'Celestials, I made it my-rbusiness to discover the latitude and longitude of the aforesaid garden, the home of those venturesome pioneers. . I got there all right, and found our old chum Jack Parker and his -brothers, trim, hearty, and as well as ever.' Guess I got a shearer's welcome, and ever since I left, my horse has been praying for a speedy return. Redbank farm, as it is called, is beautifully situated on the banks of the Murrumbidgee, and is naturally an eye -sore and pain in the mind of the Chow-loving monopolist, and a source of joy and pleasure to all Chow-hating workers. Parker Bros, have several acres fenced and cleared, ploughed and irrigated, ready for the destruction of Ah Toy, Sing Lum and Co. They irrigate with an eight horse power engine, with pump...

TO OUR MATES IN ST. HELENA Strike up anew song1, a preen in praise of Our brothers entombed in the cold prison ? ^ . cell, For dreary and desolate now are the days of Our friends who for right did their liberty sell. - 'With no murd'rous knife were our martyrs provided: Is't a crime to champion humanity's cause ? Tor this they're arrested, chained, and derided, Condemned to long terms under obsolete laws. ... ? ?

Spreading liberty's light 'neath Australia's blue.

Our comrades will hear when the people are free. / ' ' W-W. Bourke, April 5, 1892. * '

LUCINDA SHARPE ON COLOR. Another Aspect of the Black Labor Question. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 9 April 1892

LTJCINDA SHARPE ON COLOR Another Aspect of the Black Labor Question. [Written for The Hummer.'] Ever so many years ago, so long ago that I don't venture to count the years, because, you see, it would show nie that I am grow ing* oldish, which none of us like to know, there was a girl in a village/! used to visit at who fell in love with a colored man, Desdemona and Othello over again. She was a go-to-meeting girl, and sang in the choir, and he was a go-to-meeting man, and sang ditto. He was,, a good-hearted man, too, and honest, and kindly, and hardwork ing, and friends with everybody. Never theless, when she began to walk out with him; her people looked glum, and when they were engaged old acquaintances became cold, and friends fell off, and in a vague kind of way it was held not to be right. Somehow, I felt sorry for her. Perhaps it' was sheer cantankerousness on my part there is a pleasure, you know,_in being with the under dog-— anyway, I got to talk when ever I met her, and fin...

MELBOURNE MOVEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 9 April 1892

. MELBOURNE MOVEMENTS [BrA.-J. S.] Young Patriotic Leaguo held a fearfully ? turbulent meeting in Richmond Town Hall this night week. ' Several of their champions confessed they were very ignorant on po litical matters, having spent their spare time in seeking pleasure ; but each and all of them gave us to understand they were to be saviours of Australia, and they also had a cut in at what they were pleased to call the ' so-called Labor party.' One of their speakers gave us to understand their prin cipal object was to 'restore confidence.' He forgot to say in whom: He could not - have meant his own society, because it is principally composed of lawyers, and no one, bar their clients, were ever foolish enough to place any confidence in them, and the arrival of the bill of costs is generally a signal to shatter that, little confidence. Another speaker told us his society welcomed all classes — the navvy as well as anyone else. Perhaps they think the navvy will come in handy to dig the...

JIM TOOMEY'S "BIG HOT WORDS." [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 9 April 1892

JIM TOOMEY'S ' BIO HOT WORDS.' Dea:r 'I-ImprEJt,' — Those men aa4io are supposed to be leaders in the Labor movement, Avho have been ?using what you call' big hot words,' seem to me to be injuring the Cause by their stupidity. Such statements as Jim Too mey is reported to have made last week at a meeting- of the Trades and Labor Council are of a character likely to put back', any true reform indefinitely, and, therefore, should not be indulged in by men holding the position he 'does. The great majority of Unionists repudiate those statements, and deny that Topmey . had* ;.'any authority for making them. If they Avere, as reported, it is the duty of the Unions to call upon him for an explanation, and if such. explanation is not satisfactory he should .be removed from a position whiclp. ? he evidently uses to blow his own flute, caring not whether lie injures the. Cause so long as he draws' atten tion to the mighty Jim Toomey. This Toomey, at. the late A.S.U. and G.L.U. Con ferences o...

SMOKE HO!! Monaro squatters talk of importing* cheap labor to take the place of their ordinary hands. The banks are putting on the screw. * * # ?What made the incidents of the French Revolution so unexpected and of surpassing brutality was the fearful social contrast of the classes meeting each other in combat. And now compare the contrasts within our modern society. ... Is history to repeat itself, or will a safet}7'- valve prevent the social system of the nineteenth century from ex ploding ? — K. of L.

NOTES FROM VIC. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 9 April 1892

NOTES FROM VIC Dear Hummer, — That well-known Free Labor Station, Eurambeen, Vic, owned by Beggs, has been visited by three fires during the last two years. The first that occurred was supposed to have been caused by Arthur Rae or Ste venson, as they were in the district at the time. A second one visited them a 'few- months ago, and as there Avere no A.S.U. agents about, suspicion at once fell on a union shearer in the neighborhood. A re ward of. £100 was offered, and a detective engaged to bring the culprit to justice, but this had not the desired effect. The affair remained a mystery till a few weeks ago. . Now hold your breath boys while I tell you. A station hand was caught red-handed at a stack of, straw. He was given in charge, and when' brought before the court, admitted having caused the third and also the two pre vious fires, and got four years for his trouble . But that was nothing; compared to the shock Beggs got. When he heard the adniis% sion he almost collaxDsed, espec...

BOURKE BREEZES. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 9 April 1892

BOUKKE BREEZES. [By Hyphen.] Jack Brown was reading the report of the Royal Commission on Strikes a few days ago, and didn't he buck when he came across Webb's statement that 314 was the total number of sheep raddled- at JGlfera in '82. ' The blanky L — — — ,' says ? Jack, ' why he run over 500 sheep on me that year with out waiting to count 'em. I s'pose that's how he arrived at the total ; j List counted the few he took the trouble to raddle, and didn't bother about the hundreds he run without either raddling or counting.'

That was the sole crime of the eleven men killed in Arkansas. And yet this is said to be a free country.— Philadelphia Frew. ?.'' '

Economy and careful administra tion were the watchwords of the present Ministry. Yet Ave have an Appropriation Bill representing an expenditure of eleven millions to cover the government of this . peaceful young community. That would not be so much of itself but for the glaring fact that in a time of great depression the expenditure on the Civil Service has been largely added to for no good reason !,what ever, and the Government, notwithstanding their promises to the country, have charged to Loan Yote a number of works of a dis tinctly unproductive character.
