SMOKE HO!! [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 16 April 1892

SMOKE HO.'! '50,000 pottery hands on strike in Stafford' shire, England. * * * ? The Pastoralists' Union is advertising with the object of inducing shearers to engage through the P.U. office. It is hardly neces sary to inform A.S.U. men that this is only a dodge to get all, the engagements into the hands of the squatters' agents, which isn't good enough by a long way. . # # # There isn't any sense, or unionism either, in giving' your money to the P.U. to take care of and drau: interest on your earnings; while the members without a spare pound get no work. * * The Mayor of Macdonaldtown, a suburban municipality, moved the otheir day that the name of that borough be changed to ' Erskineville.' In seconding the motion Alderman Anderson said the proposed change would benefit property holders by adding at least 5 per cent, to the* letting value of their properties. I didn't think there was such a big ' divvy' in a name as that ; but if so, as about 95 per cent, of the people haven't any ...

COURTS OF CONCILIATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 16 April 1892

COURTS OF CONCILIATION Boaiids of Conciliation and Arbitra tion have now been established by law for the settlement of disputes be tween employers and their workmen in. New So\ith 'Wales A short time ago I offered some re marks on that subject which were not meant to disparage the probable use fulness of such institutions, but merely to point out that their establishment was an admission that modern society was divided into two hostile factions, and that as these boards are to be purely voluntary in their action, the law has only told these two rival armies how to do what they . always could have done at their own will and pleasure without waiting for any legal permission. However true those views may be, and I do not think they can be refuted, it seems to me that man is a most in consistent and curious animal. He is fond of 'law and order' I suppose, and rather enjoys making a law to compel himself to do what he has been longing to do all his, life but couldn't, just because he had...

ANTS IN THE BILLY. The Yellow Agony in America. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 23 April 1892

ANTS IN THE BILLY The Yellow Agony in America. The House of Representatives (the People's Chamber in the United States Congress) has passed a bill to totally prohibit the immigra tion of Chinese into that country. The bill was passed by a large majority, and, there fore, it is not expected that the Senate will oppose it. There are about 400,000 Chows in the United States, and it has been proved that their competition has reduced the aver age Avage of almost eArery occupation from 10 per cent to oO ancl even bU per cent, wnue the social evils and vices they foster are simply appalling in their extent. Of the 400,000 Chinese residents in the States about half of them are in the one State of California, while from 30,000 to 60,000 are in its capital city, San Francisco. Now that America is closing her doors to the yellow agony it is bound to make an attempt to fasten itself upon Aus tralia, and Ave will find that the €100 poll tax Avill not be sufficient to stop an influx of that most ...

THE LABOR PARTY IN VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 23 April 1892

THE LABOR PARTY IN VICTORIA. As our readers will observe in our telegraphic column, the Labor .'Party in Victoria have been fairly success ful at the elections, twelve straight ' out- -Labor, -men. having been returned. It is rather disappointing to learn that men who have been for years connected with organising work should place so' little value on organisation in connection with political matters. From private-- advices we received some weeks ago we learned that the Labor men were spending more time in ' barracking' for a seat than in solidifying the Labor vote, and a word of warning was sent along to our Melbourne mates. . Evidently the warning was disregarded, and Labor has only twelve representatives in the Victorian Parliament instead of at least double that number. How ever, it is satisfactory to learn that the cause of Liberalism is still to the fore in Victoria, and that the ' Na tional Ass.' advocates of the dual vote have received a facer. The Shi els Ministry evidently ...
