THE CENSORSHIP. Melbourne, November 26, 1918. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 7 December 1918

THE CENSORSHIP. Melbourne, November 26, 191& To the Acting Prime Minister, Melbourne, ? - Dear Sir,— r We desire to draw your'attention to the increased abuse of the censorship, which, in the case of some papers, seems to have reached its height since the signing of the armistice. Not only words ' or sentences, but whole articles, the trend of whose argument is objected to, have been struck out in papers which have not received such treatment in the past. Over and over again news that has ap peared in other Australian papers has been refused publication in ours. What we r-eally have in Melbourne is a censor ing of the already censored, a super censorship. Papers like the 'Argus,' 'Age,' Sydney '/Jaily Telegraph,' etc., with a circulation of hundreds of thou« tsands, have been ' permitted to publish 'what has been refused to papers like' ours, with a much smaller circulation. Such phrases as 'Against Imperialism,' 'For a CONSTRUCTIVE Peace by Negotia tion' have been struck ou...

ONE BIG UNION OF FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 7 December 1918

ONE BIG UNION OF FARMERS. -»?.-?. ? ? The farmers are as concerned as any other workers with better organisation.; I have preached the doctrine of one indus trial union for farmers for years—the one big union, advocated for other industries. The farmers are split into factions. Some are -supporting the Farmers and Settlers' Association, which is — and always has been — run in the interests of the squattersr G. I. Campbell, Trethowan, and Hunt are all station holders. See 'Herald' report on meat question. . : -These men have managed year after year to get hold of the farmer's leg. Jt seems amazing, but it is true. There are other so-called farmers' unions which pro fess to be non-party, but when the strike was on they joined hands with the F. and S.A. and the 'National' Party to fight the men who were lodging the only pro test they have against the m-ofiteer. I took care to put -the correct view be fore farmers within radius of the local district paper, and the appeal for 'loyal' wor...

SENATOR GRANT ON YOUNG AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 7 December 1918

SENATOR GRANT ON YOUNG AUSTRALIA. -? .'When; the Commonwealth Electoral Sftnienginent Bill was before the Senate, Senator Grant made an effort K reduce ? the qualify ingr age to 18. He moved:—* s 'That the words 'twenty-one* be omit ; ted with a view to insert in lieu thereof the word, 'eighteen.'' v IB ? -The amendment will meet with the a*p ~^m^~ -proval of a majority' of the electors, S- though not with that' of those who have ? always opposed the extension, of the B franchise. It was most difficult to obtain B the franchise for all adults of twenty-one B years of age, and it is not long: since — in fl New South Wales, at any rate— the own^ .B ers of property could record a vote in B '-?- every electorate in which their property B was situated. It was not unusual for a ? big property-holder to record votes for from twelve to thirty candidates. The elections were not then all held on the same day, which made it possible for such an elector to vote first in city and subur ban elect...

SOME QUESTIONS FOR LABOR.

In this connection It is worth while for .. the British workman and his wife to ask; themselves the following questions: — : 1. Will the trial and. punishment of the' Kaiser and his relatives restore any. lost British lives? 2. Will it dispense with the necessity d£ also trying the home-grown Huns who have been profiteering at the expense pt British flesh and blood? , ~ ' 3.

^STUDIES IN NATURAL HISTORY. THE SNAKE ANDfJfee MOUSE AND THEflpN. Once upon a tini-s on the plains of Riverina a field mouse ' was running around near an old dry, crooked horn of an ancient bullock, long since perished.

The trembling little animal, seeing too other means of escape, darted into the. old ham/and squeezed as near to the point as he could get. The baffled serpent looked ' at the horn from every point of view, and had almost decided to leave the district, when the mouse man aged, to, turn round, and, finding himself, safe, pC{t up -one little paw to rub his nose. The anake, taking this for an in-' «uit, became enraged,' and. swallowed the horn in order to capture the mouse, and colled up to let the horn .digest. This was a slow process, for verily that horn had been baked hard under the suns of many summers in a land of great heat. The mou...

THE CASE OF SISTER EGAN. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 7 December 1918

THE CASE OF SISTER EGAN. This is a case which demands the in stant attention of every man and woman in Australia, irrespective of class pre judices, sectarian, or racial differences. Sister Bgan was one of a band of brave women who went down to the North Head -Quarantine Station, at terrible per sonal risk, to hold up the barricade which is keeping back the dread pestilence which has swept almost every country In the civilised 'world except Australia. Despite every sanitary precaution, she caught the infection, and.- when she lay dying, being a Catholic, she naturally wanted the last consolations of her re ligion, a« understood by the Church to which she belonged. To a woman who had given her life for the community, nothing in Heaven or Earth which was humanly possible of accomplishment ought t0 have been denied. Any hesi tancy in granting- a dying woman's re quest under such circumstances was black ingratitude. Yet . some muddle headed and stony-hearted offioial person somewhere di...

WAR TIME PROFITS BILL. MELBOURNE, Dec. 11. In the House of Representatives the War Time Profits Bill passed the second reading stage. The war has been going full blast for four and a quarter years, and at length the 'Win-the-War' Government has got the above measure through the second reading stage in the House of Represen tatives. . It is confidently expected that if the same rate of progress is maintained the Act will be in force in time for the next war. Meanwhile the rumor that the Govern-' ment is to be prosecuted by its own party, as an Unlawful Association practising 'go-slow' tactics, has not been cons firmed. SPARTACUa 1

THE CASE OF SISTER EGAN. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 14 December 1918

THE CASE OF SISTER E€ AN. The facts of this case are 'aire&dy^will known all over Australia, but opinion^ differ ajs to whether the refusal of per-* mission to a priest to visit sick member^ of Ms flock is justifiable or not. Thd arguments against admission are—: 1. That if the clergy ofjme denomination are admitted others must also be admitted if they apply. Granted; but Protestants of various sects have, as a rule, no objection, to the ministrations of each other's clergy so probably the number of applicant clergy would be few. 2. If clergy may visit the dying, thenj why not a mother, wife, sweetheart, . Oil best friend? The answer is that where) the dying person is more concerned to. meet a loved relative than a clergyman,: if such relative will accept all risk®, that* too, should be granted, subject to-neces^ sary qualifications, 3. If this be conceded, the opponents ofs admission argue that the disease will conn stantly be fed with fresh victims, who, in! their turn, wi...

THE PNEUMONIA EPIDEMIC. HELD UP AT OUR DOORS. ITS RAVAGES ELSEWHERE. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 14 December 1918

THE PNEUMONIA EPIDEMIC HELD UP AT OUR DOORS. ITS RAVAGES ELSEWHERE. The Federal quarantine authorities have so far been most successful in preventing the spread into Australia of the pneu monia epidemic that has for some time been causing havoc in other countries. At various quarantine stations many vessels with crews and passengers are still detained. At North Head, Sydney, where the greater number of cases are quarantined there are many sick, and several deaths have occurred, but the proportion both of new cases and of deaths is diminishing, and the authorities are feeling more confident that they have the disease well under control. From New Zealand more or less re liable information states that the viru lence of the malady there has abated con siderably, that fewer deaths -now occur, and that some of the restrictions placed on business and on public assemblies are being removed. In Samoa the epidemic has caused very high mortality, a message received last week placing this at 21...
