THE BRITISH ELECTIONS. AFTER MANY DAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 7 December 1918
THE BRITISH ELECTIONS. I AFTER MANY PAYS. -'? . . ' i „ l.i r , ?' The English elections, which are fast approaching:,' mark, a new epoch in human historjr. ' Thip. is no mere struggle be tween political parties for place and pay. It is the harvest of years of patient cul tivation, of seed sown in the days when all was dark. It is the culminating result of ages fit endeavor, of life-times of work lone in far-off days. When we read the clear-cut challenge of the English Labor Party, which is throwing down the gauge of battle ih open daylight to that trinity jt evils, Militarism, Imperialism, and commercialism, the sudden splendor of 3uch an achievement makes 'the blood run hot and fires the imagination even of those who have grown grey in the fight. Set the men and women who are doing this magnificent thing tire not either supermen or demigods, but just plain, ordinary human beings.

THE LABOR MOVEMENT NOW AND HEREAFTER. : A NEW OBJECTIVE WANTED. FLIRTING WITH SOCIALISM IN THE PAST. THE WAR AND SOCIALISM IN EUROPE. BISMARCK HUGHES AND HOLMAN. SUGGESTIONS FOR NEXT CON FERENCE. The Warren -Undereliffe A.L.P. decided recently to move at next Annual Conference that the present objective of the Movement should be amended to provide for 'the social ownership of land, capital, and the machinery of production. ' ' The Marrickville Branch decided at its last meeting to move next Con ference to adopt 'a definitely So cialistic Objective.' These ' resolutions are indications of the strongly Socialistic trend of thought operating throughout the Labor Movement in this and other States. Li this regard it is .evident tliat the 'rank and file are getting ahead of their political leaders. Further proof oi this growing evo lution of the Movement is fount! in the preamble to the famous peaee proposals first adopted in this State and subsequently endorsed .ihroiigh- out Australia. ...
SOLDIERS AND WORKMEN. A CALL TO ARMS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 7 December 1918
SOLDIERS AND WQRKMEN. ACALLTdARBK. .

THE MEANEST THING ON EARTH. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 7 December 1918
THE MEANEST THING ON EARTH. We have all heard of the historic Mean Man Championship, and by a consensus of opinion it has been generally agreed that the meanest possible way to get current coin of the realm would be by stealing pennies out of a blind man's hat. It seemed impossible to think of anything meaner than that, tout some Sydney bar risters are just now putting up a new re cord, which leaves the purloiner of the blind man's coppers in the 'also ran class.' The case in_ point is the inquiry now going on in the Arbitration Co.urt with a view of fixing a minimum wage for shop girls. The girls, of course, are not accustomed to the tricks of Law Courts, and, being girls, feel a natural modesty about publicly discussing such questions as the cost of women's underclothing; be fore a male audience. . The legal Thugs who have been hired by the bosses. are tak ing full advantage of the girls' embarrass ment, and are putting them through a cross-examination which amounts to ab solute t...

AUSTRALIA'S WAR LOSSES. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 7 December 1918
AUSTRALIA'S WAR LOSSES. Senator Pratten, lecturing before the Enfi&ld Methodist Church on Monday last, the 2nd inst, according to the 'S.M. Herald,' made the following statement:— t „ ' 'In actual killed, Australia has lost one In six of the troops sent oversea, Canada has lost one In nine, and Great Britain has lost on* in. ten,' These figures are significant, and bear out the statements made in last week's isstte. showing that our losses, relatively to population and absolutely, exceeded those of Canada. The war-time profiteers of Sydney and Melbourne are almost beside themselves with indignation at the revival of the federal measure designed to make them fork PUt, -a share of their unholy gains. Especially ia** they mad at the retrospect ive nature, of the latest amendment of the Act. They ask Willie ^Watt to receiva'a^ deputation- on the. subject.

PATRIOTISM AND PLUNDER. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 7 December 1918
PATRIOTISM AND PLUNDER. I -The ^attention of returned soldiers needs .to* be sharply drawn to the wholesale loot of repatriation funds * by private land owners which is now going on under the pretext of patriotically offering their es tates for soldiers' settlements. The dan gerous practice of a Minister making what are practically private arrangements with landowners as to the disposal of their es tates for repatriation purposes and then submitting a long list of such arrange ments to Parliament for an 'Aye' or 'No' vote must stopped, although very soon there will be no repatriation funds left. Many years ago, when the Carruthers Government tried to incorporate the same idea of private arrangements &n their* Closer Settlement Bill, a member who knew what he was talking about cynically remarked, 'I would not trust the Arch angel Gabriel with such power, let alone a Minister for Lands.' Mr. Ashford is now exercising the very powers which Parliament at that time wisely .refuse...
