THE STRAIGHT WIRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 16 April 1892

THE STRAIGHT WIRE. [By Central.] 'My Lords and Gentlemen,' said the great English finance minister in the House of Lords during the Napoleonic wars, ' to ? levy a direct tax of seven per cent, is a dan gerous experiment in a free country, and may invite revolt, but there is a method by which you can tax the last rag from tlie back and tlieslast bite from the mouth without causing a murmur against liigli taxes, and that is to tax a great many articles of daily use and necessity so indirectly that people will pay them and not know it ; tlieir grumbling then will be of hard times, but they will not know that tlie hard times are caused by taxation.' ' We know what Unionism has . accom plished in trade matters. It has forced numerous reforms in connection with all in dustries, has even influenced legislatures, and- the stamp of its moral force is seen in our laws. Tom Rose, M.P. for Argyle, says the ' vote for thrift ' is the ' ' governing of one man's brains by another man's pocket.' Th...

WHY IS THIS? [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 16 April 1892

WHY IS THIS P When the land is full of workers, B,usy hands and' active brains. When the craftsmen and the thinkers Feel about them binding chains-; When the laborer is cheated Of the Avork his hands have wrought, And the thinker, vain of logic, Sees that reason comes to naught ; When the forces men have harnessed And have trained to do their will, Ought to leave no homeless people And no hungry mouths to fill, N Have but proved themselves the servants Of the i shrewd and selfish few* And the many haAre but little For the work they find to do ; When the labor of a million Goes to swell the gains of one, As the serfs of ancient Egypt . : Starved beneath the burning sun ; / When the schemer and the sharper . Hold the wealth and rule the land, Using up the thinker's brain force, Mortgaging the craftsman's hand ; When the many shear the sheep. And the few secure the wool. And the gallows claims its Aictims, And your costly jails are full — . Then the men who dreamed of progress And the ...

The spectacle ofyfchousands of idle men in a rich country like Australia is a disgrace to Australian democracy. Not only have the Governments of the colonies proved their utter incapacity for dealing with the great . question of the age, but they have displayed a lack of sympathy with , the masses, and .have made their burden greater and their lot worse.

BOURKE BREEZES. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 16 April 1892

BOURKE BREEZES. ' Sandy' writes from Bourke : — ' Willis, M.P., complains of misrepresentation ! He has turned turtle so many times over the unemployed and tne Labor Bureau that he hardly knows which side he's. on. It's some thing new, though, for him to complain of misrepresentation. . It's generally the other way. He slanders and maligns without end those who may happen to look under the slight film of humbug, miscalled by Willis democracy, and under which he hides his innate crookedness. The exposure of his attempt to swamp the Bourke district — al- ready filled with idle men — with a crowd from Sydney, at less than the rate of wage usually ruling up here, has called forth his bitterest venom ; but his own defence shows his true character more plainly than any denunciation could possibly do. His fulsome compliments to the workers of the Western district are so * intermingled with denunciations of the un employed of the remainder of the colony as 'wretched loafers and tag-rag and ...

LAWYER BEST AND THE YOUNG PATRIOTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 16 April 1892

LAWYER BEST AND THE YOUNG PATRIOTS. At Fitzroy, last Thursday, Messrs Best and Tucker in addressing their constituents, ap pealed to them not to be misled by those horrid Trades Hall agitators. Lawyer Best, who was living sumptuously during the time of the deplorable distress in his constiuency through want of employment, was asked if he expected the workers vote, after having neglected them at a time when they so urgently needed assistance. With the usual lawyer effrontery he replied in the affirma tive, and at once commenced to pervert the truth by telling the audience that if they desired to restore prosperity they must ex clude agitators of the Fleming stamp from the colony. Your humble servant mounted the. platform, which was fully occupied by members of the Young Patiotic League, in cluding ' youths' averaging in age some thing between 40 and 70. Amongst them .were usurers, landlords, .lawyers, capitalists, parsons, doctors, and policemen, besides the lpcal flunkies. I was fac...

COMMENTS ON THE P IT. ADVERTISEMENT. Whitely JCing, Secretary of the P.U., sends us an. advertisem ent, and a money order for £1 16s to pay for it. Of course we accept P.U. money every time, and carry out, our share of the contract by inserting their ad.

We don't sell our opinions for the price of an ad., even .from the high and mightv wool kings of the P.U. Of course the A.S.U. is going to ?loyally abide by the terms of the Conference Agree ment, and we hope the other party will do the .same, which we verv much doubt ; ' but sending an ad. to the Union -'paper doesn't sweeten us over, and make us forget the fact . that while they are continually trying to rub into us this so-called ' freedom of con- . tract' business, they are doing all they can to get the whole of the shearing engagements into...

A large and influential de putation of citizens waited upon Mr. Shiels to induce him to alter the date, and Mr. Meudel, one of the founders of the Patriotic League, stated that lie supported the altera tion on the ground that the additional holi day would paralyse business for the week, and brokers and clients on' the Stock Ex change would suffer serious loss.

THE FEDERATION BALLOT. An Explanation. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 16 April 1892

THE FEDERATION BALLOT An Explanation. In accordance with a resolution of last A.S.U* Conference, a ballot is now being* taken all * through Wagga branch on the question of whether or not, the whole of the Labor Unions throughout Australia shall fede rate. As there i& some misunderstanding -among members as to 'the aims and objects of the ' proposed federation of labor, this is written m explanation. In the first place, members are asked not to confuse federation with amalgamation. The question as to whether the A.S.U; shall amalgamate with the G.L.U. is to be sub mitted to the members of both unions during next shearing season, but has nothing what- ? ever to do with the subject of federation now being voted on. ? In regard to federation, those who have not studied the scheme which was adopted at the Ballarat Congress by delegates repre senting all the principal labor unions - in Australasia, frequently make the mistake of thinking that if we all federated that any one union...

But the monaker of this Registrarin Pharmacy at ' ' Auld Reekie, ' ' put me in mind of the fact that Bob could an swer some very grave questions concerning some deaths that took place in July last.

NATURAL WAGES IN AFRICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 16 April 1892

In the primitive condition of man ? his first aim Avas. liow to live with the least possible exertion. This he could do by the expenditure of a few hours' labor a day ; and, as a matter of fact, the native races of Africa at the present time are able to sustain life by working on an average of about -two hours per day. That they do not fare badly I can personally testify, having been several years amongst them, their diet- consisting of maize, which is cooked in a variety of Ways, pump kins, sweet potatoes, wild fruit, honey, Kaffir corn, eggs, milk, and a native decoction made of Kaffir corn fermented, which they drink.
