From this report the following is taken :— It is not too much to say that in the past too 'little heed has been taken to the doings of the — ^— annual Labour Congresses held in these colonies. , They have been looked upon as mere junketting expeditions ; but the congress just cjosedjsan_ exception to this rule, and for downright good work ic has never been excelled.

THE EDITORIAL MILL. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 16 May 1891

THE EDITORIAL MILL   The Townsville contest resulted, for Labour, in one of those defeats which in themselves are victories. The voting showed : Browne— Capi- italism 806; Ogden - Labour 633. That is to say, in the very stronghold of the Northern syndi-       cates, in the face of plural voting, worker dis- franchisement and necessarily incomplete Labour organisation, the combined capitalistic parties only saved the seat by the skin of their teeth, The heart-felt thanks of every unionist and union-sympathiser in the country are due to our       Townsville brothers, not only for the way they cast their ballots on behalf of the chosen stan-   dard-bearer but also for the patient preliminary   work which such a vote proves. It is harder now to poll one vote for Labour than under a   fair electoral system it would be to poll three, though even as thingsa re t...

Scheme of Federation Adopted by the Ballarat Congress. PREAMBLE. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 16 May 1891

Scheme of Federation Adopted by the Ballarat Congress. PREAMBLE. It is desirable for the maintenance and fur- therance of unionism in Australasia that a defi- nite federation of labour unions shall be insti- tuted, which Federation, while leaving to each individual union or local aggregation of unions   full self-government in their own particular affairs, will be a means of securing unity of pur- pose and action on all general matters and for facilitating the mutual cooperation of affiliated unions whenever necessary for the common wel-   fare. With this end in view the accompanying   scheme of Federation is submitted by the   Seventh Intercolonial Trades and Labour Con- gress, held in Ballarat, Victoria, to the labour   councils and labour unions of Australasia.

FOUR YEARS TOR AGITATING. The Government's Coercion Pill That ? Doesn't Seem to Work. The conclusion of 'Tihe W- ^ofisptf acy^' cases at Ro^kharnpton pn Wednesday week last was a bit of a surprise, as after the juryliad hung tor 36 hours it was reasonable to expect that it_ seriously disagreed. Btowever, Harding's humour seems to have Joeen too much for the gentlemen of the jury, ana hnaily they said that twelve ot th^ fourteen, were 'Guilty,' with a unanimous recommendation to mercy. This recommenda tion was attended to by the gentle judge as might have been expected : he gave the prisoners ftwtr yqwra n.pianp— three years hard laoourand to find sureties for good behaviour for another.

PRIVATE CAPITALISTIC POLICE. The squatters, or rather Organised Australian Capitalism, was not satisfied with modern law, so~throiifh~Tts sub-couttmitteeT^the Griftitlrtk$=~ vftrTiTYiPwtj it, mired up an obsolete George IV. statute. In the same way it is not satisfied with modem methods of keeping the peace, not even though the said methods cost £1500 a day. Ac cordingly it is reviving the hired bravo or' bully or retainer habit of feudal times and enrolling what it terms 'commissionaires ' as a species of private police. Just what these ' commissionaires ' are in tended to do may be gathered from what the organisation they are modelled on, the Pinker ton, police, does in America.
