SYDNEY MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS. POLLING DAY, MONDAY, DECEMBER 2. LABOR'S CHANCES BRIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 30 November 1918
[?] POLLING DAY, MONDAY, DECEMBER 2. LABOR'S CHANCES BRIGHT. ' The election of aldermen for the Syd ney Gity Council takes place next Mon , day; December 2, and, from the encour aging accounts to hand, Labor stands an excellent chance of being represented l-y a majority in the new Council. Every voter must vote for TWO can didates or the ballot paper will be in formal. In every one of the ten con tested wards there are two Labor can didates running, and there is no excuse for any loyal Labor supporter splitting liis or her vote. It is to be trusted that; no personal preferences or prejudices will $ lead any one to forget their duty to the cause, they profess by allowing any per sonal consideration whatever to over ride their sense of public duty. The following are standing in the in terests of Labor in the various wards: — BELMORE. Alderman J. English and Mr. P. V. Stokes. BL1GH. Alderman J. Farrell and Mr. Chas. Bridges. CAMPEROOWN. Alderman R. D. Brampston ind Mr. Chas. Scott. COO...
ONE BIG UNION AND RETURNED MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 30 November 1918
ONE BIG UNION AND RETURNED MEN. (From 'The Worker.') It appears; according to the capitalistic press and certain members of the Nation alist party, that the One Big Union move ment has committed a great wrong in addressing a Manifesto to Returned Men, urging upon them the necessity for organ ising to secure their rights. Labor's enemies characterise the manifesto issued as 'a cunning appeal to the passions of the returned men,' and hope that they will take no notice of it — in other words, that they will not organise to secure the fulfilment of promises made to them in the past. There is every reason why the returned men should immediately set about organ ising themselves against the vested in terests of this country, ready to take ad vantage of their present position for the purpose of exploiting them. For unless the returned men take steps to force the recognition of the pledges made to them prior to enlisting for foreign service, it is very certain that they will find themselves ...
THE SYDNEY CITY MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS LABOR ATTACKS VESTED. INTERESTS. THE "BUSINESS MEN" ARGUMENT. LABOR'S OPPORTUNITY. THE WILL TO WIN. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 30 November 1918
THE SYDNEY CITY MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS LABOR ATTACKS VESTED, INTERESTS. THE 'BUSINESS MEN' ARGUMENT. LABOR'S OPPORTUNITY. THE WILL TO WIN. The Sydney daily newspapers are rais ing the old cry tbat the management of . » huge concern like the Municipality of Sydney requires the services of the best bueineas men available. The implication . is, of course, that Labor candidates lack business ability and experience, and that the -whole administrative abiliy of the community is concentrated in the /Nationalist -candidates. ThlB paper does not decry business ability, but there are several points ?bout It on which a little plain speaking may lead to a little more dear think ing: on the part of the municipal elec tors. Big- business men, even -when Itonest according to commercial stan dards, which are not over-high, are very apt to devote all their business abilities ?to their own special interests and pro jects,; leaving only the fag-ends and rem nants of their mighty intellects for pub lic af...
UNDEMOCRATIC DEMOCRACY. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 30 November 1918
UNDEMOCRATIC DEMOCRACY. Under our system of Government, which is practically the same as that of Britain, the majority, party in Parliament chooses one man as its Leader. He goe6 to the Governor and tells him all about it, and the Governor then commissions the Leader to pick. a team, or to pretend to do so, for. as a matter, of fact the team has been chosen some time before. The Leader submits the list to . the Got veruor, who says , 'O.K.,' . or words to that effect, and they are all sworn in as Ministers of the Crown. After this things go on much the same as they did before they began to be different. If on. of the Ministers gets out of hand and tries to run away with the waggon, or jibs and lies down in the shafts, or isn't willing to lend his boss a hundred or so when badly needed, the head serang gives him the spear,' and sends him up to the office for his pay, including dirt-money, and that's the end of the section for him. He seldom has many sympathisers, be cause there are p...
WHY FRUIT IS DEAR AND THE GROWERS POOR. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 30 November 1918
WHY FRUIT IS DEAR AND THE GROWERS POOR. Fruit-growers are a class of primary producers who run more constant risks of disaster than a soldier does of bullets. Their products, being highly perishable, are at the mercy of uncertain and fluc tuating markets. Being tender and easily injured, they are readily destroyed bv thunderstorms, hail or wind, birds, in sects, scales, grubs, blight, or fungus. Like the poet Gordon, the growers are dis posed to say, 'The troubles of life are many, the pleasures of life *re few.' ? ? ? These disabilities require organisation and State assistance to overcome, not merely in the interests of the growers, but for the health and well-being of the whole community. With the exception of the Yanco settlers and a few other small irrigation shows, no class has been so long and shamefully neglected as the fruit-grower. One reason for this has hitherto been that the vast majority of orchardists were the most conservative class on earth, and would have rather vo...

KARL LIEBKNECHT. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 30 November 1918
^^^.^^mm;'r It is cabled that Karl Liebknecht has openly advised the German people to over throw the Bourgeoisie Socialism of the new Chancellor, Ebert, and adopt Bol shevism on the Russian plan. . . ... Karl Liebknecht Was the Socialist leader in the Reichstag' (German Federal Parliament) before the war. When the war broke out he alone refused to vote for the' expenditure on war. and de lounced the war as inhuman and criminal, arid opposed it with, all his great ibility and undaunted courage. One Socialist ^comrade, Ledebour, stuck to him and voted with him. Then the Serman Government sent 'him to the Front in active service, but still he opposed the var, and, when occasionally allowed off to ittend the sittings of Parliament, he con sistently fought and voted against the war credits, and denounced the whole ghastly business with an indomitable courage unequalled by any politician in my land since Pym and Hampden defied the tyranny of King Charles Stuart over two hundred years ago ...
