Advertising [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 30 April 1892
THE HUMMER IS THE PROPERTY OF THE UNIONS, And is conducted by the Members for the Members. NO PRIVATE INDIVIDUAL Has tlie slightest interest in the Hummer, as we think it is about TIME WE KNOCKED OFF SUBSIDISING PRIVATE MONOPOLY. EVERY unionist 1 ould SUBSCRIBE to the paper, V' -v and thus , IMPROVE HIS OWN PROPERTY. THE HUMMER Is the smartest Co-operative Labor Journal in the colony. Those who supply the news are in touch with the Labor movement, and understand all about it. THE HUMMER has a wider circulation than any other Co-operative Lab6r Journal in New South Wales. The 'workers never' did and never will obtain any benefits from the paj^ers owned by wealthy syndicates and controlled by the capitalistic class, as such papers are run solely for speculative purposes, and conse quently the interests of advertisers and the monied class are always well guarded, independent of principle or policy, and the interests of the workers are silently ignored or mis represented.

BIRD'S-EYE VIEW FROM SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 30 April 1892
BIRD'S-EYE VIEW FROM SYDNEY. [By Tui.] Premier Dibbs is making active: prepara tions for a trip to the old' country, and there is much speculation as' to what his 'little game' is, so to speak. What is lie going to England for ; in fact Mr Toohev (one of the 'disappointed ones' of the protectionist party) tried his level best to pump tlie Pre mier in the House anentthat same— without much effect ; and since then a goodish bit of wild and 'fanciful speculation has been in dulged in with regard^ to the probable 'movements' or performances of G. R, D. when he gets, there. Among the. shrewd guesses was one — based on the usual authentic information — that he was going to float a new bank, Nobody has yet suggested , that his mission is to import ad ively company of ballet girls, or a new kind of circus ; or that lie is going to confer Avith General Booth on the subject of assisting some of the 'submerged tenth' of Old England to these smiling shores for the purpose of assisting in some A...
LABOR IN OTHER LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 30 April 1892
LABOR IN OTHER LANDS. ? : ? : ' i As we go to press American exchanges are to hand up' to March 24. The Tjabor papers teem with evidence that the life-blood of the . workers is being drained' bv the ' damnable-, dominancy of the dollar.' ?. Organised monopoly is preparing to use force against the people. 32,000 , Pinkerton assassins arc armed with the best rifles and 'revolvers, and shoot the strikers' down in , the interests of 'law and order.' The Reading Combina tion is seeking to control the entire anthra cite coal output of America. Boodleism is rampant, and the profit-mongers' are vio lating the constitution, of every State in order to further rob the people. ' The railways are run for dividends, and 35,359 employees have been killed or injured in one year. The tariff question is used by the exploiters as a wedge to keep the workers from thinking about the abo lition of monopoly, and all the time strong and earnest men avid women are steadily organising, organising, organising...
A DOG IN THE MANGER POLICY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 30 April 1892
A DOG IN TKE MANGER POLICY. Dear Hummer, — In a letter from a Vic torian correspondent occurs tlie following passage: — 'Dad' says the opposition to Black Labor is a dog in the manger policy.' . I'd like to know on what ' Dad' bases his opinion. Perhaps he would justify the return to slavery as practised in former days. If 'so, of course, there is no more to be -said. But. I would ask ' Dad' if the community benefits by the introduction and employment of these Kanakas ? Those who support the movement say it is the only manner in which the sugar-growing industry can be saved from total annihilation. Its opponents deny this in toto, arid, anyway, . say it is better'to let- the sugar trade go to Hades than bolster it by such riieans.' It has bee.u proved that 9.0 .per cent, of the Islanders do not understand the terms of their engage .ment. They live at home in the Islands in a state of . -perfect contentment, having plenty of the necessaries of life, and it is well known are not. in t...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. Sweating in Holy Adelaide, the City of Churches. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 30 April 1892
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. Sweating in Holy Adelaide, the City of Churches. On Tuesday last (April 13) some little light was thrown upon the sweating system as it exists here by Mrs Elizabeth Rogers, of Brompton,. before the Shops and Fac tories Commission. Mrs Rogers lived by taking in needlework, and was working for , the sweaters—' men who got the work from the shops, cut it out, and gave it to her to make.' The shops gave 6s a dozen to those who cut the stuff, but she had 'to make the shirts complete and ready for the warehouse at S^d eacli. It took her eleven hours to finish a dozen shirts, and she got 4s for them, out of which she had to pay 6d for cotton. The sweaters could make 18s a day, and she was forced to accept their term?, as the factories woutd not give the work direct. She some times worked from 7.30 a.m. till midnight and 1 o'clock. Of the girls slie herself em ployed one received ,9s and the other 6s per week ; button-holers were paid 2s 6d a week for the first three months...

HANK MORGAN ON THE VICTORIAN ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 30 April 1892
HANK MORGAN ON THE VIC TORIAN ELECTIONS. The General Elections which took place in Victoria on Wednesday, the 20th April, are, I suppose, the most mixed up and confused in their outcome of any that ever took place in any 'Australian colony. The papers on all sides claim a victory for their particular views. The Conservative Argus and the wobbling Age, and ? the few real Liberal papers in the country, as well as the . one Labor journal, Commonweal , all profess to be tolerably well .satisfied with the pro gress of their parties, and the triumphs of their respective candidates. It is rather. a good kind of election that suits all parties, and, so far, it cannot be called unsatisfactory, . excepting to those fourteen defeated ones who lost £50 deposit each, and to the flat-footed individual who resigned his seat in ' the Council to try for one in the Assembly and fell in the soup for both . * & . ? * ? To an intelligent outsider, who didn't back anybody for a cent, but who yet ...
THE BULLETIN CRIES EUREKA! [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 30 April 1892
?THE BULLETIN CRIES EUREKA! After for years advocating land value taxation, then swapping' the doctrine for a vague theoiy of Land Nationali ' sation because it discovered Henry George wasn't a Protectionist, ; then going bald-headed for State Social ism as a refuge from the questionings of those who w7 anted particulars oi its Land Nationalisation scheme, the Sydney Bulletin rises to remark that neither Socialism nor Land Nationalis ation are possible at present, and finding the Protection that it has wet nursed for a decade doesn't burst up big estates or cause any better distri bution of wealth than the bogus Freetrade of the S. M. Herald , the Bulletin 'goes nap' on the French plan of dividing every man's pro perty at his^ death equally between all his descendants. It is claimed that this will burst up the big estates effectually, and cause poverty to dis appear as if by magic. N No doubt it would ; so wTould an earthquake or a comprehensive tidal wave, and those forces are just...

HENRY GEORGE ON COMPETITION [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 30 April 1892
HENRY GEORGE ON COM PETITION (Reprinted fmm the Y. Standard. J W. W. Head, Secretary of the Shearers. Union, writes me from Wagga, New South Wales, saying : Dear Sir, — Socialism of the State or Bellamy brand is spreading- here, and the only thing' Single Taxers have to offer as an argument against their doctrine is an admission that the single tax will and must necessarily bring voluntary co-operation and less governmental machinery— less rule, or - more law and less force — anarchy of a sort. Of course there is no great fight between them', as Socialists admit the pooling of la,nd values is the first step towards reform ; but they set as much value on the nationalisa tion of banks and capital as that of the land, and 'want to start right away to nationalise those things which we believe are not in. their nature monopolies, and which would . iiot be monopolies if land values were taken by the people. In short, they do npt believe in competition, and want to abolish it right uway. I...

NOT A CRIME—A DUTY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 7 May 1892
NOT A CRIME— A DUTY. This is how Pioneer, the Single Tax paper of South Australia, winds up a- scathing article on- the, action of the Queensland Government in forcing the Kanaka Slave Bill through Parliament in direct opposition to the will of the. people, and which was the greatest' outrage ever perpetrated by Parlia ment on a presumably free people : — If after this the Q/nfifinsln.nrl wnvlrflvs r)f-fpi-min'o +./?» effect, by appeal to the bullet, what has been denied, them by the ballot — if they .take their stand, rine-armed, to ' warn off'3, black -labor- bearing ? vessels from our northern - coast — who will hold the action wrong and unjustified? For our part, if political, matters remain changed, we do most firmly ( hold that such a course will be not only justi fied, but may come to even an imperative neces . sity — a duty to' the national life— first,. by Queensland, and behind her, of Australia. The words of the philosopher, Patrick Edward Dove, may well' be recommended t...
NOTES FROM CRESWICK (VIC.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 7 May 1892
' NOTES FROM CRESWICK (VIC) [By Clarence. 1 * Organising work in connection with th'is Branch of the General Laborers' Union is progressing very satisfactorily. Some forty district agents have been appointed through out the various centres of the- Branch, most of whom report that the workers generally are joining freely. The female labor is also being organised. Several of the sex have applied to the office to be appointed agents, sf.n.f.ino' f.bn.f. f.lifliv sh rvrvmn/kpsi . fan. .n.vfi wfllina1 and anxious to join the G.L.U. A big future is aliead for the G.L.U. in Vic, as the workers of, all sections are throwing, in their I lot with us, knowing that it must' ultimately be the strongest Union in the colonies. The recent election for the Legislative Assembly, through mismanagement, was not nearly the success it should have been. Labor candidates were brought out in oppo sition to true Liberals, who have advocated our cause, and two candidates in the one interest contested seats wh...
THE STRAIGHT WIRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 7 May 1892
THE STRAIGHT WIRE. [By Central.] ? Glebe Labor League protests because Labor '\r.is not considered in Lagislative Council appointments. Deeming; 'said^at his trial that he had been found guilty by the newspapers before being tried, and that the public had been so stuffed with lies of a sensational character that they 'would' ' lynch 'Hini' without hearing any evi dence at all if they had the chance. 'The papers must be sold, and the bigger the lie the bigger the sale, '' says Deeming. And the statement (apart from the merits of the case) is remarkably near the truth. Some don't like being told the truth even-by a mad murderer, so the Age promptly comes out with an article more bloodthirsty than ever, scouting the 'instinctive criminality'' de fence setup by the prisoner's counsel -with learned and lofty scorn. Wonder what David Syme knows about instinctive criminality, anyway. ? We hear of Union men (some of them, officials too) who have lived so. long in an atmosphere of bigotry an...
LUCINDA SHARPE ON THRIFT [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 7 May 1892
LTTCINDA SHARPE ON THRIFT ? ♦ ? (Worker.) I recollect, when I was quite . small, a neighbor who was thrifty. He was so thrifty that he wouldn't even go to sleep in, church, 'cause then he'd miss his money's worth, he being* one of the .pillars and sub scribing' to the parson. He' was so thrifty that if anybody was at. his house - he'd ; put the clock back an .hoar or two to avoid asking 'em to stay to. a meal. Thrifty! Thriftv isn't a circumstance to it. He bought a suit of insurrection clothes, for his first, wife to be 'buried in and wouldn't marry . a second time' because - the ? lady he fancied for the second struck in favor 'of going to the circus as a treat on the festive bridal day. . .Now, I call that man pretty thrifty, don't you ?? , ' But he wasn't happy, ' not the least little bit. By. the way, perhaps you don't know what resurrection clothes' are. ' 'Well, resur rection clothes are cut on jthe_.p'attern of the beautiful white shirt fronts commonly called ' dickies, ' al...
