THE MILK OF THE COCOANUT. RUSSIAN DEBTS. The London 'Economist' of May 26 has the following: 'Considerable anxiety is being felt in France as to whether the Government will honor the .Russian loan coupons due for payment at the end of the current Half-year. Since the Bol shevik regime suspended payment of in terest on: Russian bonds seven months ago the French Government has- assumed the burden, but it has been intimated that the April coupon waB the last that will be so .honored.

MINISTER JENSEN GETS THE ORDER OF THE SACK. BUT WON'T ACCEPT THE HONOR. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 14 December 1918

MINISTER JENSEN GETS THE ORDER OF THE SACK. BUT WONT ACCEPT THE HONOR, Some weeks ago a report was circu lated that the purchase by the Common wealth Naval Department of the Shaw Wireless Company's plant and workshops at Randwick had somewhat of a fishy smell, not on account of the nearness of the works to the Pacific Ocean, so much «p the price paid being in excess of the value. ? In plain English It was alleged that the late Father Shaw (who died just a week after the transaction was completed) re ceived an enormously greater price for the works than they were worth, and cut up several thousands of pounds among- those who had the political pull to get the Mini ster to make the deal. Mr. J. A. Jensen, Minister for the Navy, feeing that his integrity was in Question, asked his colleagues to relieve him from bis portfolio until an inquiry could be held, to fcbow where he stood in the matter. Ttolt Inquiry has been held, and the re . port of the Commission shows that £65,000 wa* banke...

JENSEN, THE STICKER. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 14 December 1918

JENSEN, THE STICKER. Jensen 'has always been a 'great sticker. When Hughes turned conscriptionist anA Jensen didn't, he still stucK to the Hughes Ministry. When Hughes wired from Sydney to hlB colleagues in Melbourne to .pass a new regulation disfranchising military default ers, an Executive meeting was held under the Vice-Presidency of Senator Gardiner, and he, Russell, Higgs, and Jensen de cided to turn down Billy's proposal, Mi Jensen stuck to his mates in this very proper decision. ? Later oh, when Hughes and the Gover nor-General met in ! Sydney, and decided to have a little Executive meeting to do this darksome deed on their own, they required another Minister to make a quorum, and wired Jensen to come along. Jensen- thereupon decided to stick to his chief and his portfolio, and did as he was asked. ? i Finally, on the Shaw wireless purchase, which all must admit is an exceedingly sticky subject, Jensen, as late Minister for the Navy and now Minister for Cus toms, decides to s...

WHICH HORN OF THE DILEMMA? [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 14 December 1918

WHICH HORN OF THE DILEMMA ? The German ex-Kaiser is held to be re sponsible for the war because as an abso lute autocratic ruler neither Parliament nor People could say him nay. If that be true then it is a quite logical and understandable position to make him pay. It is also said that the German PEOPLE were backing up the Kaiser, approved the war, must be held equally responsible, and therefore compelled to pay the cost of the war. Considering: (a) That the Kaiser tould do as he chose, and isjthere guilty of start ing the row and should be hanged; -b) that although the Kaiser was omnipotent the. People were also omnipoent, and al though any one of them publicly denounc ing the war was jailed, fined, or shot, yet they need not have joined in the war. Of course the fact that they were conscripts, and would be shot for refusing to serve In the Army, is clear proof that they were all-powerful and should therefore be made to pay the cost of the war they were driven to engage in.

THE VENEREAL DISEASES ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 14 December 1918

THE VENEREAL DISEASES ACT. The New South Wales Government put through last week a Venereal Diseases Bill of a nature that, so far as it goes, commends itself to all who have the health of the community at heart. FollOwing'the example of other States, New South Wales at last insists upon notification, and if that provision is car ried out as it should be great good should result. In one respect, however, the measure falls short of what it might be. It makes no provision for the direct education of the people on the extreme seriousness of the more common venereal complaints. On account of the hush-it-up policy that has prevailed so long, there are many persons who know next to nothing on the subject. There are, for instance, thousands of youths and men — to refer to one sex only —who, in their ignorance, regard gonorr hea as a comparatively trivial local ail ment, and are profoundly ignorant of its far-reaching constitutional effects and consequences. As prevention is better than cure...

IMPERIALISM. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 14 December 1918

IMPERIALISM. To worship at the shrine of Imperial Federation necessitates a blind, unthinkT ing acceptance of all the suggestions of the disciples of the cult. It is impossible for any man who gives even most cursory examination to the subject to do other than reject the whole proposition. Imperial Federation springs -rom the Imperialist ambitions of the English Capi talists who desire to see the Empire ruled from Downing-street in the interests of the Big Financial Interests of the United Kingdom. Democracy in such an atmosphere would wither and die right away, and autocracy would flaunt its brazen arro gance to the world. And yet the advocates of this greater autocracy do not lack in pertinacity. Imperial Federation would strangle any attempt of the working class to overthrow the system' which holds them in thraldom, and repression, quick and final, would be meted out to the militants of the move ment who desire to see the power of the people in. the various. dependencies broad en...

A JUDICiAIrSCAtfpAL The..:recent inquiry .by , the Board of Trade,, presided over by Judge Heydon, is one of the most scandalous proceedings which' has ever been perpetrated upon the people of New South Wales,- , ; The salary of Judge Heydon- is £1500 per annum, or nearly £30 per week. Each of the other members of the Board re ceives £760 per annum, or over £14 per week, and this gathering of, official no bodies, ' numbering (to our shame be it sad) alleged Labor representatives, sol emnly discussed for several days the quality and cost of working women's hats, boots, dresses and underwear with a view to finding out the lowest weekly sum on which, they could subsist and sustain suf ficient bodily strength to create a constant crop of profits for their employers. No self-respecting nation would tolerate such an outrage upon the most useful class — the workers of the community. Let us for a moment consider the main facts.

THREE JUDGES GO OUT. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 14 December 1918

THREE JUDGES GO OUT. Three N.S.W. Judges, having reached the 70 years age-limit, are due for retire ment, and after enjoying good screws for many years get 12 months'- leave of ab sence on full pay before technically step ping-off the stage to enjoy their Wg pen sions. - ' Of course, if any person has rendered the community good service he or she ought, long before ^reaching 70 years of age, be able to live in leisurely comfort the re mainder of their days. There does not, however, seem any sound democratic reason why this should apply any more to judges than to coal lumpers. In fact, while a judge gets £20 to £30 per week, with short hours and long holidays, he is infinitely better able to save enough for his old age than the hard grafter with the casual job. Also, he is much more likely to live to old age than the useful toiler who takes more risks In- a week than a judge takes in a life-time. The three judges listed for retirement are Heydon, Docker, and Fitzhardinge. So far as t...
