MR. HUGHES. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 23 November 1918

MR. HUGHES. Amid the storm of the world's rejoicings the thin voice of 'our Mr. Hughes pipes out something about Australia- being dis satisfied, -or not being represented some where; or words to that effect. In the general maelstrom of a whirling world it may be that nobody on the other side of the earth is really ' taking any notice of the little man/ The Northern Hemis phere may not know he is there,' in 'fact, but in case anybody over in Europe has leisure or inclination .to listen to him, it is just as well to say that Australia is hot greatly concerned about him or his objections to the peace proposals. Aus tralia*, in a large way, is not intent on counting commas and on taking points like a pettifogging attorney; Australia is: content to trust the Allies to the fullest extent; and Australia will certainly not cry out before she is hurt Mr. Hughes is either wholly mistaken in bis fears, or is considerably too previous and too tact less la expressing' them.— 'Evening News,1*

LABOR TROUBLES IN W.A. TROUBLE ON WHARVES. SOLDIER-LABORERS ASSAULTED. Fremantle, 16/11/'18.

LAND MONOPOLY STILL CONTINUES. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 23 November 1918

LAND MONOPOLY STJLL CONTINUES. While the present Government pretends to be particularly anxious to settle the returned soldiers after returning from the war, it appears that they are more desir? ous of ? giving the best land to some of their friends, and leaving the worst land to the returned men. A specific instance would be the case of a recent purchase by the New Zealand Land Company (?) wherein about 5000 acres of some of the finest river flats in the State, and in close proximity to a railway, has been granted to this company. This land is capable of producing pota toes equal to anything in the State per acre, and a good deal of it is suitable for growing lucerne. All electors of Monaro who believe in bona fide closer settlement should vote solidly for Bailey, the Labor candidate, and assist settlers and soldiers to get suit able land that is at present being grabbed up by the' land monopolists. :

THE MONARO ELECTION. THE LABOR VICTORY LABOR LEADER'S VIEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 30 November 1918

THE MONARO ELECTION. . THE LABOR VICTORY LABOR LEADER'S VIEWS: Mr. John Storey, ^commenting on the result of the by-election, said that it was a great victory, and, taken in conjunction with the recent very substantial diminu tion in tho National majority in the Upper Hunter, was 'the writing on the wall' for the National Party. The Pre mier made a desperate attempt in. this contest to buttress up his dying cause, and he was assisted by practically the whole of his Ministers, but with the result that the Labor candidate obtained an even larger majority than Mr. Miller, who was always able to count upon a substantial personal following, independent of party. The National speakers took advantage of the signing of the armistice to misrepre sent Labor's part in the war, and its policy generally, but the poll showed that the people refused to be misled. The Monaro electorate was devoted largely to farming and grazing, and contained comparatively few people who were ordinarily de scribed ...

WISDOM. FROM THE WRITINGS OF COL. ROBERT INGERSOLL, ORATOR AND AGNOSTIC. THE CHURCH LOOKS BACK. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 30 November 1918

WISDOM. FROM THE WRITINGS OF COL. ROBERT INGER8OLL, ORATOR AND AGNOSTIC. THE CHURCH LOOKS BACK. The Church is, and always has been, incapable of a forward movement. Re ligion always looks back. The Church has already reduced Spain to a guitar, Italy to a hand-organ, and Ireland to exile. « ? ? ON WAR. We hear the sound of preparation — the mu^ic of the boisterous drums-r-the silver voices of heroic bugles. We see thousands of assemblages, and hear the appeals of orators; we see the pale cheeks of wo men, and the flushed faces of men. We see them part with those they love. We see them all as they march proudly away under the flaunting flags, keeping time to the. wild music of war — marching down the streets of the great cities— down to the fields of glory. We go with them one and all. We are by their sides on all the gory fields, in all the hospitals of pain — on all the weary marches. We are with them in ravines running with blood. We are with them between contending hosts, unable t...

Canada has a popu lation of 8,500,000, as against Australia's 4,800,000. Canada is only 'about onequar ter the distance from Europe compared with Australia. Not only did Australia contribute more men absolutely, but on a population basis her contribution of man power was neariv twice that of the Dominion. . '

ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 30 November 1918

ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. Q.: Is Australia the most democratic country in the world, as it generally claims to be? A.: This is a question scarcely ad mitting of a simple 'Yes' or 'No.' In -- some respects Australia is undoubtedly * in the lead. It is the only continent on : earth where complete voting: equality exists without distinction of class or set. These political powers have not, however, been as largely availed of as have more restricted powers in some other coun .tries. That is taking the vote as an imple ment, it has been neglected and misused .through the common vices of ignorance and laziness, but there are signs of an awakening intelligence. In Switzerland and in some of the States of North America the popular Referendum and Initiative are in active Use; while, in Australia, this most demo cratic of all political instruments is only talked about. The Recall has also been adopted in some States and cities of 'America, In Australia all the States have anti democratic sec...

WHAT UNIONISM HAS ACCOMPLISHED. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 30 November 1918

WHAT UNIONISM HAS ACCOMPLISHED. If we want to trace the effect of any social factor' of world-wide importance in human affairs, we must look past the ebb and flow of individual lives to the great gulf currents of thought and en . deavor. Perhaps the best illustration of . a triumph of Unionism is to be found in . era and our own. During the Napoleonic : ' area and our own. During the Napoleonic jtvar unorganised Labor in every country, ? and especially in England, was in a con dition of actual -slavery. No provision whatever was made for the dependents if soldiers and sailors, and the wives ind children of the men in the trenches ind on board the battleships were the ab tolute prey of the great manufacturers. In. England, especially, enormous fortunes were made by exploiting human flesh and blood to its uttermost limit, and on one *ver said a word about profiteering. The tate of the orphan children of the fallen was to pass into the bands of' merciless - commercial taskmasters', who...

SEiiraiv it is nnt that Mr. Rutherford is gifted with super-intelligence gleaned from his smattering of the history of the Roman Empire, and that he sees in the member for Cook some reincarnation of that age?
