THE TREASON OF IMPERIALISM [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 14 December 1918

if1 IMPERMi^ The 'Sydney Morning Herald' 1b pleased to hear that President Wilson is assured of a splendid welcome in Paris, but ex-i presses surprise and regret that .Frencfii laudations of Wilson are punctuated .with unpleasant remarks about British ' fin.*! perialism. The 'Herald' apparently doea not understand that exactly the same atti tude towards both President Wilson and Imperialism exists in England, and is there; being expressed at the present moment ia! even a more definite manner than by tho French Socialists. The 'Herald' proudly, points to the fact that the British throne' stands secure to-day whilst Imperial dy^ nasties are crumbling to ruin. That *S true, but no thanks are due to British IBM perialism 'for this state of affairs. It is only because the dangerous designs ot British Imperialists have been held in' check in England by the growth of demo-i cracy that the throne of England is sM cure — because it is not resting on ah Inw perial foundation. The Peace Confer...

N.S.W. ELECTORAL AMENDMENT. BILL GAGGED THROUGH HOUSE. OPPOSITION'S FRUITLESS PROTEST. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 14 December 1918

[?] BILL GAGGED THROUGH HOUSE. OPPOSITION'S FRUITLESS PROTEST. In the N.S.W. Legislative Assembly last Monday the Government, by the fre quent application of the gag, strangled all discussion of its Amending Electoral Act, and pushed that measure through its last reading. Throughout the comparatively brief time in which the bill ;was before the House there was a continuous volley of protest by the Opposition, which rightly claimed that Parliament was being given no opportunity to discuss, or even fully to understand, the proposals embodied. Among the followers of the Government only Member Bavin had courags or prin ciple enough to offer any protest against the Government's methods. 'In my opinion,' said Mr. Bavin, 'legis- lative methods of~this kind bring the Go vernment into contempt in the commu nity. These proceedings have done im measurable harm to the party.' At one stage In the gagging process Opposition leader Storey, with almost all his associates, left the House as protest ...

UNIONISM AND POLITICS [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 14 December 1918

UNIONISM AND POLITICS Cabled that the threatened railwaymen'0 I strike in England has been averted by the I Government conceding- their demand for j an eight-hour day, to commence from j February 1 next. This is a striking illus-; 1 tration of the wisdom of combining poll-- § tics with unionism. : S The pending general election in the Dis united Kingdom is so strenuous that- any big industrial upheaval would about smash the party machine in the . middle of the fight. In fact, 5t seems to us that the rail-* waymen could have got a darned sight more than they did only for the tremen-. dous haste of their secretary, Thomas; to keep sweet with Lloyd George and CO. at all costs. — Spartacus. ? ~ ? ? ?

RETURNED SOLDIERS AND SAILORS' POLITICAL LEAGUE. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 14 December 1918

RETURNED SOLDIERS AND SAILORS' POLITICAL LEAGUE. There was a large attendance of the Executive on Tuesday evening, and the following resolutions were carried: — 1. 'That this League demands the re lease of all men suffering terms of im prisonment for breaches of military law, and a review of all cases of a question able character by the civil courts. These men were tried and sentenced by courts martial, and many of them had seen, con siderable active service in the A.I.F, there fore we are of the opinion that they are entitled to more than ordinary considera tion.' 2. 'That the Commonwealth Government be requested to ensure that all men re turning; from active service are carried home in comfortable transports, and are not herded together like sheep and treated like criminals as the revelations in the Federal Parliament re the Barambah seem to indicate.' Members are requested to return mem bership butts and moneys to the Secretary to enable him to complete his annual bal ance sheet ...

A THOUSAND A YEAR-WHY NOT? MILITARY WASTE. III. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 14 December 1918

A THOUSAND A YEAR-WHY NOT? '.-; Military 'waste. - V In previous articles various forms of -' pasted, energy were dealt with, but so £ar no reference has been made to the extent to 'which military and naval ex- \ ? penditure cripples the national strength : and diminishes production of useful com modities. In war-time this is so self eviaent that it requires no proor, out me 'j&urdens borne by the nations in pre ' faring for war in times of peace are enor inous.

THE MONARO BY-ELECTION. PADDY SULLIVAN GETS "SORE." CAN'T TAKE HIS GRUEL. MONARO ELECTORS ARE "BOLSHEVIKS, RED-RAGGERS, GERMAN SYMPATHISERS, MADMEN, UNEDUCATED, AND ILLITERATE. BROOKFIELD'S A "DUCKY." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 14 December 1918

THE MONARO BY-ELECTION. PADDY SULLIVAN GETS 'SOR£.' CAN'T TAKE fits GRUEL. MONARO ELECTORS ARE 'BOLSHE- VIKS, RED-RAGGERS, GERMAN SYMPATHISERS, MADMEN, UN EDUCATED, AND ILLITERATE. BROOKFIELD'S A 'DUCKY.' This is the class of stuff Mr. Faddy Sullivan is serving up to the people of Gundagai since his crushing defeat last Saturday week. The extracts are taken1 from his paper, the 'Gundagai Indepen dent,' and show fairly conclusively that Mr. Sullivan doesn't think so much of the Monaro people as he tried to make us believe during the by-election cam paign. Here's what the 'Independent' says: — : 'Labor leader Storey sees 'the writing on the wall' in the result of the Monaro election. So does this paper, but from a different point to Mr. Storey. It sees in it a coming danger to constitutional government and the triumph of the Red Flag element. The spirit of revolution is in the air. The recent doings at Broken Hill, the hoisting of the Red Flag at a shearing shed near Cooma, and the gi...

THOUGHTS ON DEMOCRACY. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 14 December 1918

1TOUGHTS Ofl DEMOCRACY. Unity and continuity of effort atone cart' make democracy a reality. To .divide and to distract have keen the methods by which the forces of ' . reaction- have made democracy p. sham. Ho* fan the people in this or other capitalist countries make , themselves HUong enough to win the real control of their external and internal policy? If they cculd be brought to a realising sense of the danger of their situation, and the ur gent necessity of organising so effectively as to give real meaning- to the formal power which numbers possess, success would be theirs. But here we collide against another power of the reaction, Tho people, as a whole, have not the in telligence, the knowledge, and the persis tent will needed to make democracy ef fective for this great task. Why not? Nut because of any incapacity to think, to . learn, and to exert will-power in seek ing their ends, but because the circum jstances under which they live and work, and the arts of management of...

THE COLORING OF MARGARINE. EXPORTERS' RESOLUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 14 December 1918

THE COLORING OF MARGARINE. EXPORTERS' RESOLUTION. Under Commonwealth law manufac turers of margarine are prohibited from coloring their production, which, being made from various fats churned in skim milk, is naturally a white substance. The prohibition was expressly designed to prevent the obvious fraud of palming off on local consumers the artificial sub stance under the pretence of being butter. At Sydney this week a conference of frozen and canned meat exporters passed a resolution urging- that the prohibition should be rescinded, nominally in order that Australian margarine manufacturers may be enabled to compete in the British market; with other producing countries. The prohibition was the wise wovk of a Labor Government, and for that reason, and also because of the pull Capitalism exercises over its representatives in power, the odds are heavy that the prohibition wiil be annulled. All the same, it is incumbent on Labor to have its word on the subject at once. Federal members...

POLITICAL ACTION. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 14 December 1918

POLITICAL ACTION The value of political action can be gauged to a' very appreciable extent- by^ comparing the condition of affairs in, Aus- tralia during the past two or three years under Tory government with that prevail ing in Queensland under the administra tion of a Labor Government. . . People of all States are beginning to realise that there is only one decent State to live in, and that ia Queensland; and they realise that its decency is due en tirely to the sympathetic and humane manner in which the Labor Government has administered its affairs. The Queensland Labor Government has done its utmost to protect the public against the exploiter and the profiteer, and it has stood soundly and solidly for true democracy, without cant, hypocrisy or humbug. The position of Australia would be very much more satisfactory to-day if the af fairs of the Commonwealth had been con trolled by a sympathetic Labor Govern ment — and it is entirely the fault of the workers . themselves that such ...

PRISONERS OF WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 14 December 1918

PRISONERS OF WAR, The incompetence! or callous neglect of the military authorities is shown by the complete absence of newa concerning the fate' of Australian prisoners of war in Germany, The most harrowing tales of the treat ment of war prisoners by the Germans are permitted to appear in our daily papers day after day. They are said to Have died in thousands through cruelty, neglect, bad food and cold. Jt is said that they are wandering over the French and Dutch borders ragged, gaunt, verminous, famished and tuberculous, and are dying by the wayside from starvation and dis ease. We have no means of testing the truth of these statements, ana the anxiety and suspense to careworn wives and mothers is pitiable in the extreme. We are told from time to time that so many officers and men have arrived in England from Germany prison camps. - From the commencement of the war un til the present some 450 casualty lists of killed, wounded, sick and captured have appeared in the Australian paper...

THE END OF THE SESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 14 December 1918

THE END OF THE SESSION. On Wednesday, December 11, the N.S.W. State session came to an end immediately after the withdrawal of the private enter prise Ashtonfields Railway Bill. Premier Holmanr in extending an in vitation to the Opposition to join with the -Government in a little farewell social function, Labor Leader John Storey curtly refused on the very proper ground that as Holman had. recently described his opponents as 'wild beasts,' they, the Labor Party, declined to accept the Government's sham hospitality and hypocritical profes sions of goodwill. Subsequently the Labor Party met in the Party's own room and had a little quiet jollification. The chair was occupied by J. Osborne, member for Paddington, and several neat speeches were made eulogis ing their leader, John Storey, for his strenuous fighting qualities and unfail ing geniality under the most trying cir cumstances. Songs and recitations were also rendered and much appreciated, and the gathering dispersed about 11.30 ...

THE LABOR TRUCE. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 14 December 1918

THE LABOR TRUCE. It has been charged In a certain cla&3 of newspaper in the United States— and several individual members of the recent American Labor mission to Great Britain and France have hinted strongly in the same direction—that Arthur Henderson does not express the correct view of the organised working {people in tjaking a) position opposed to the George Govern ment and favoring an ending of the poli tical truce that was supposed to exist by & Ibtso majority in the recent London conference of the Labor Party, How true these charges are may be inferred by the result in a special election held for mem ber of Parliament in a Northumberland district just a few days before the London conference of the Labor Party. Although the district is strongly working class, the Liberal and Conservative Party bosses completely ignored the workers, as has been their custom elsewhere, and agreed upon ft candidate. There upon Ebenezer Edwards, -a miner, announced his candidaoy, an...

CASE OF N.S.W. WEW SERVICE BOARD. MEMBERS RESIGN. . SACKING BILL ABANDONED. HOLMAN'S CHARACTERISTIC STRATEGY. Holman's campaign against the N.S.W. Public Service Board is over. With a bill before Parliament to em power the Government to remove the members of the Board, the latter were given an opportunity to present their case through counsel at the bar of the House. The case was presented accordingly, and Holman, with his finger on the pulse ot his party, detected grave symptoms. The Opposition he knew was solidly against giving any power to dispense with the services of the members of the Board without full discussion and investigation. On principles of justice it was determined on a serious fight. For that alone Holman probably cared little. He was no doubt prepared to apply the gag as often and as unscrupulously as he had done during the debate on the Elec toral Amendment Act. But the attitude of some of his own fol lowers put him in a hole; and after the adjournment of the Hous...

HOLMAN'S PROMISES AND THE UPPER HOUSE. THE CAMPERDOWN WARD. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 14 December 1918

HOLMAN'S PROMISES AND THE UPPER HOUSE. THE CAMPERDOWN WARD. Premier Holman fulfilled his promise to re-enrol the Labor candidates for Cam perdowh in a truly. Holmanesque manner. He passed the necessary Bill through the Assembly very promptly and allowed his friends in the 'Upper' House to just as promptly throw it out with a dull thud. When will the people realise that one of the worst evils of the two -chambered sys tem of legislation is that it offers a pre mium to crafty and insincere politicians to keep their promises in the letter and; break them in the spirit? Time after time Ministers and members of the Assembly are faced with the necessity of intro ducing or supporting legislation which they detest. This they do with a great show of democratic, sincerity, .while giving the quiet tip to their friends in the Cham ber of Assassination to strangle the un welcome offspring without mercy.
