VICTORIAN STATE COAL MINE. MEN DISSATISFIED WITH CONDITIONS. Union Secretary Penalised [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 21 July 1910

VICTORIAN STATE COALMINE. MEN DISSATISFIED WITH CON DITIONS. Union Secretary Penalised Though no actual industiial outbreak occurred at the Powletf, V., State coal nrne, the men resumed work dissatisfied with the terms forced upon them, and a condition of seething discontent has pre vailed ever since. The hewing and other rates, autocratically fixed by the general manager (Mr. Broome), weio altogether too low to admit of anything like a fair wage being earned, and the experience of the workers when back at the mine soon proved this. Although all the men were not put off during the time ven tilation was being proceeded with, a large proportion were. The work of ventila tion occupied a much longer period than was anticipated, and the consequence was that many men began to feel the pinch of straitened circumstances. There was a good deal of humbugging delay about j making the rates dec.iderl upon available,! and. when they were finally produced there was a stand-and-del'ver attitude as...

page twnty°One: CONDUCTED BY Norman Lilley. O. HENRY. :* TliG American story-writer ' O. Henry ' ' William Sidney Porter) died in New York last month under an operation, aged 43. His short stories liad great vogue,' and deserved much of it.' Among- his oc cupations before he became a professional I writer were those of cowboy, shepherd, - i merchant, photographer, miner, and drug gist. He gleaned from all of them for his stories. The gentle -reviewer has com pared him to Dickens and Stevenson. It : is hard to find any resemblance to Stevenson further, than a New Arabian Nights type of plot here and there. Stevenson had too much . regard for style '' (that is he lost vitality- in striving: after . it) ; 0. ITenry had too. little. Pie shows scant likeness to Dickens other than in ? gathering characters from all quarters ; and revelling in their peculiarities. But tlie way of the revelling is different; it i&'that of a sophisticated^ American of ? tb-day, telling his story .'ve...

After we had fraternised a little, he told me that he and his wife, by sleeping in the passage outside their one room, were able to let their bed sometimes for three pence, and if they could get two to sleep in it, for fivepence* a night. His wife was able to make a few pence by 're plenishing his barrow for. a coster, while ?he himself generally managed to pick up twopence halfpenny to threepence by minding children ^for their mothers out side this particular house.

BRITISH SUFFRAGISTS IN SYDNEY. CORDIALLY RECEIVED BY LABOR COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 21 July 1910

BRITISH SUFFRAGISTS IN SYDNEY. CORDIALLY RECEIVED BY LABOR COUNCIL. f ? Miss Muriel Matters and Miss Tillard, members of the National Executive of the British Women's Freedom League, were prsent at the last meeting of the Labor Council of New South Wales, and were cordially welcomed by the President, Mr. E.. Farrar, on behalf of the Council. In the course of his remarks Mr. Farrar said that long, before women had gained the suffrage in Nqw South Wales, the Labor i'arty had always supported their right to political. equality with, men, and had fur ther stood out for their industrial equality also, in as. much as a plank in the Party's platform had always been equal pay for equal work, irrespective of sex. Labor in Australia was in complete sympathy with the struggle that women in Great Britain we're at present carrying on, and confi dently looked forward to its eventual suc cess. Personally, he was certaih that when they had won the political rights they sought the result would be an...

PUNISHING OF SCHOOL CHILDREN. ARE TEACHERS BRUTAL? [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 21 July 1910

PUNISHING OF SCHOOL CHILDREN. ? ♦ ? : ARE TEACHERS BRUTAL? Dear Worker, — As a most enthusiastic and, I hope, consistent Laborite, may I be allowed to make some remarks in reference to-1 a paragraph contained in the criticism by a Worker contributor (25/5/'10) of the article entitled 'Australian Citizens in the Marring,' whicli appeared in the 'Lone' Hand ' for May ? . I only -propose to use the one para graph as my text, but the matter, I be lieve, ig one which 'calls for extended comment. The Labor Party, which I have sup ported in season and ' out of season throughout my politically articulate exis tence, stands for ' justice for all and privilege for'none'; and it is in the in terests of justice and humanity that I write this letter. 'With a space-saving elision, this is the paragraph to which I refer: — ' (6) Pun ishing children for physical defects.

DISTRICT NURSING IN THE BUSH. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 21 July 1910

DISTRICT NURSING IN THE BUSH. A ? ~ ;« In Adelaide the scheme, has not yet taken much hold because, say ^he nurses ;; there, 'we have a district nursing of our own, and do not want a second.-'. Well and good. But: how far does, this : go, 'and whom ;does it benefit? Does it : reach, as far and as completely as the one proposed Cor all Australia? Further, it I the present South Australian method and management is good, it may' be taken as a model, and both schemes, merging, be come one. It is only a small thing, ser viceable to the few, useless to the many —a sort of private nursing combine — that needs to fear to become Australian and national. Fremantle. paying formerly £200 to the hospital for its eases, has this year voted its money to the maintenance of a local' district nur.se — with good results to the town.
