OUR SISTERS'COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 21 May 1892
OUR SISTERS' COLUMN. % Dear Hummer, I was highly delighted with that article ? 'Lucinda Sharpe on Color,' wliicli appeared in the Hummer a couple of issues back. It is very clear to piy mind that the introduc tioii. of black breeds, otherwise known as * ' kanaka labor,' would prove fatal to Austra lians. Members of' Parliament who devote their time, for which they are handsomely paid by the State, to schemes for the enslavement of the people whom they take upon them selves to legislate for are not deserving of the respect of any woman in Australia. ' Respect indeed! What next! It's bad enough for our husbands, and sons, and daughters to have to compete with Chinamen and others, and our business people with. .Indian and Italians hawkers,-' without legal izing the introduction of a still more un civilized class. ? * ' ' ' * ? I was under the impressio n - once ? that civilization was the refining agency that _ drove from its presence everything that was opposed to progress, and that k...

THE TOILERS AND TILLERS SHOULD STAND SHOULDER TO SHOULDER. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 21 May 1892
THE TOILERS AND TILLERS SHOULD STAND SHOULDER TO SHOULDER. Mr C. A. Lindner, of the Burrumbuttock Farmers' Union, writes to Secretary Head as follows: — . - ? Dear Sir, — I am in receipt of your leaflet containing Wages Rates as adopted by the annual Conference of the General Laborers' Union. I think the wages' rate set forth there is very reasonable ; if anything* less had been adopted as a minimum standard, it would . have been no improvement worth troubling about. Whether an attempt' to improve them, will be successful will be a question of time. I doubt it under our existing social system because of the fact that capital (fictitious) is too well represented in our Legislatures as not to resort to wholesale immigration in case of seeing, their monopoly endangered by the . wealth-producers de manding- justice. But if those rates could be enforced, then I can only say the sooner the better, from a farmer's point of view, as well as from a wage -earners' . If the majority of my fell...

THE OASIS OF KERBERAH. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 21 May 1892
THE OASIS OF KERBERAH (By 0£d Brit.) -- . Ali Suleiman, the .great, robber chief, was growing old. For many years he had been the terror of caravans, whose slightest insis tence he avenged with cruel murder/ Though troops had been sent against hiiii again and again, and a large price placed on ' his heads he had baffled all attempts at capture. But now he was getting old and his courage was forsaking him.. Yet he did not like to re linquish his lucrative trade, and his - cunning brain had long brgoded over a scheme which ?should' give , him the plunder without risk. At last he was satisfied' with it, arid decided upon its execution. The next morning a messenger departed for Morocco, bearing a letter from Ali Suleiman to the Commander of the Faithful, which announced his humble submission . and . the despatch of two camel loads of precious mer ?chandise in token of homage. In return Ali ^Suleiman craved forgiveness for his past mis deeds, and permission to guard future ?caravans agai...
HENRY GEORGE ON COMPETITION [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 21 May 1892
HENRY GEORGE ON COMPETITION Dear Hummer,— Larry Petrie, in his letter, says that George's reply to Secretary Head is decidedly mixed, because George holds that all un earned increment in land belongs by right to the people. It's my opinion that Larry has got mixed when he argues that, the com munity creates the value of the implements of production. Surely Larry knows that the real value of the product of labor is the amount of labor expended in producing' such articles as he mentions, viz., socks, boots, ships, machinery, railways, and in ventions. Why he particularly mentions inventions I am at a loss to know,, because railways, machinery, ships, and boots and socks are inventions. Any sur plus value or unearned increment which he says the community creates on socks and boots is due to monopoly of some sort, either in the production of socks or the distribution, and does not arise from the needs of the pro ducer. If the needs of the producer deter mined the price or value, then al...

M INERNEY ON THE JOB. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 21 May 1892
.MINERNEY ON THE JOB. Dbae Hujuiee, Looking over the provincial , papers, I discover that Mr J as. M'Inerney has been on a lecturing* tour, . presumably in the interests of the A.S.U.' But in my humble opinion it would;Jhave been better for the Union generally had he stayed at home; instead of making foolish and mis leading statements. However, I don't pretend to be his judge, so I'll ask you to print the following pars, clipped from the Yass Evening Tribune , Quean beyan Times , and Braidwood Dispatch , and let our members judge for themselves. In the Yass 3vening Tribune of May the 2nd, he is reported to have said : ' 1 He always de fended the men, and there had never been any friction between himself and the em ployers he came in .contact, with.-' . This is a different yarn to the one he pitched at Goulburn, in the course of which he publicly jumped on the victims of a time-honored pro secution conducted by a hanging Judge and pastoralist in the interest of Capitalism. And as for...
THE POLICE AND ELECTORAL REFORM AT HAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 21 May 1892
THE POLICE AND ELECTORAL REFORM AT HAY. The police at Hay are wide awake as the following from our Hay correspondent will show. ' The Revision Court will be held here on the 16th inst., and on the list posted up at the court-house appear as large as life the names of Pierce (P.M.), Adrian (C.P.S.), Smith (Sub-Inspector of Police), and several constables. A friend of mine asked the reason for this unusual proceeding, and was informed that' there was nothing in the Act which positively forbade their names ? being on the roll, though under the present Act they were precluded from voting. And as probably during next session of Parliament the new Bill giving the police a vote would become law, an interval of perhaps six months would be allowed for a fresh collec tion of rolls. If, during this six months, an election happened to come along, those hav ing their names on the roll though pro hibited from voting under the present Act could, they claim, record their votes under the provisions ...

SMOKE HO!! [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 21 May 1892
SMOKE HO!! Pastoralists Union says a shearer who hasn't got the pound to pay for a pen needn't pay it, but he must send references. How very kind ! They will get neither in any quantity. 4VV & Toganmain, on the Murrumbidgee, wants shearers to send £2 for a pen, and shear under the old station agreement. Toganmain boss and Bobby Rand have played lone hands right through. They are wealthy, but must eventually succumb to the rule of the Banks, and if another big fight should happen both will be found on the side of the squatters' ring. * # # The boss of some earth works near Wagga says that the days are too short to allow the navvies a smoke-ho.

MELBOURNE NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 21 May 1892
MELBOURNE NOTES. [By A. J. S.] At the Collingwood Workingmen's Club Dr. Strong lectured upon the 'Life and Teachings of Robert Owen,' the father of co-operation. The Young Patriotic Leaguers would have positively fainted had they heard the Doctor while he was quoting from some of the ablest English writers, who have laid bare in all its hideousness the systems and abuses upou which England's commercial suj)remacy was founded. Children working 10, 12, and 14 hours per day, and herded together like swine. But the patriots were at home roosting on their warming pans. * # as Last [Friday a deputation of workers waited upon the Metropolitan Board of Works to try and persuade the Board to insert a clause in the conditions of their contract prohibiting the employment of any but local labor.
