CHARITY VERSUS JUSTICE [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 7 May 1892

CHARITY rERSUS JTTSTICE. {Worker.) The people of Brisbane, are being asked to contribute towards clothing ' the half naked children ,., of the unemployed.' But - why contribute ?.. Why . always Charity and never Justice? Among the unemployed, are cattle men and sheep men, men who can weave and men who can plough, aucl.men who- can tan leather and make boots. Why not let them go; to work to clothe 'tlreir'o wii half-naked children, to feed their o\vu wives, and to be manly and independent workers* themselves ?? ?*? iff . ?*? This is why men cannot work and why children are ill-clad in the wintry weather, -and ill-fed all the time: because industry is carried on solely for profit and not for use. Unless it will profit the banks and syndicates in the first place, and the em ployers, who are really overseers, in the second place, men may idle and children starve while fertile lands lie untilled and , food stuffs rot in granaries for lack of a 'buyer. This is the wrong of wrongs, the wro...

THE RUSSIAN FAMINE WHAT TOLSTOI SAYS ABOUT IT. 'At this very moment that men, women , and children are starving, literally dying of hunger, have the merchants, the land lords,, the wealthy classes generally, mani fested . their boasted love in a tangible manner? Have they changed one iota in their luxurious mode of living? Have they waived, temporarily 'suspended, or even abated their demand on the ? people for that worse than Egyptian drudgery which dries up the very marrow in the bones of the workmen, and drags them down to the level of brutes on their way to misery and death ? Have they desisted f r^om ornament ing their apartments with treasures gathered from the furthest ends of the earth ? From banqueting like pagan princes?

THE MALTHUSIAN THEORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 7 May 1892

THE MALTHUSIAN THEORY. . In lecturing on The Working-man's Paradise, at the Centennial Hall, Brisbane, on Sunday last, Mr Wallace Nelson ventured on the debateable ground of Malthusianism. This is a question which so affects the very vitality of a nation, either favorably or unfavorably, that it is sheer madness for intelligent men and women to ignore it as they are doing and to permit the doctrine to creep into popularity unexammed and uncriticised. From, a national point of view it is sheer folly for Governments to import Kanakas aud lean towards State-aided immigration while the multiplying power of the population itself is being checked and, possibly, shaken. The arguments used by the .apostles of re striction by no means cover the whole ground, nor should they be permitted to have a walk over because their- opponents are afraid of open discussion, and only dare resort occa sionally to 'an- absurd, because necessarily ?futile, suppression. There is never anything for the seekers...

THE WORKINGMAN'S PARADISE ? + ? : ? THE LATEST ATJSTKALIAN NOVEL. [By J. L. Irving-.] When I heard some few months back. that my old friend, 'John 'Miller,' the editor of the Brisbane (Q.) Worker, was writing a book, I- fully expected- the work to be some thing out of the ordinary, but was by no means prepared to find it the masterpiece it ?really is. . ??-' In his prof ace the author states that his book is written to serve a double purpose : (I)'-' To assist the fund being raised for the imprisoned victims of the late shearing strike in Queensland, and ' (2) to explain Unionism a little to those outside it; and' Socialism a little to all who cave to read or hear, whether Uaionists or not. To; under stand Socialism,' the author, continues, ' is to endeavor to lead a better life,1 to regret ?the vile ness of our present ways, to seek ill for none, to desire truth, and purity, and honesty, to' despise this selfish civilization, and to' comprehend Avhat living might be.
