THE MARITIME STRIKE OF 1890, AND THE TRADES AND LABOR COUNCIL OF N.S.W. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 28 May 1892

THE MARITIME STRIKE OF 1890, AND THE TRADES AND LABOR COUNCIL OF N.S.W. Dear Hummer, Ever since the defeat of Union Labor by Capital, and Blackleg Labor, in the ' Big Strike' of 1890, there has been a strong dis position among our enemies to blame the N.S.W. Trades and Labor Council for that defeat. Nothing else can be expected from our opponents, who are always ready to . j ump on the underneath dog, and an}' lie does duty for them. That's only human nature. I suppose, and there's a lot of that in most of us. What I complain of, though, is the fact that some ill-informed professing Unionists take up the same cry, and there ? are one or two members of the A.S.U. — men who ought to know better — who lay all the blame of the ' Shearers' Call Out' upon the fact that Ave were affiliated Avith the Trades Council. Now,- tliis is. not true. If it were so, it Avould be mean, coAvardlv, and ungenerous, to round ;.upon the : Council for committing errors of judgment. But Avheii it is utterly ...

THE NEW UNIONISM MR. W. G. SPENCE AT BOURKE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 28 May 1892

THE NEW UNIONISM MR- W- G. SPENCE AT BOURKE Mr W. G. Spence addressed a largo public meeting* in Bourke on Mondajr, 23rd inst. Mr Thomas White was voted. to the chair, and briefly introduced the speaker, who was .accorded a most enthusiastic reception. Mr Spence : The great social forces ferment ing humanity are . in active operation long before their existence is felt 01* becomes pro minent. The New Unionism of Avliich he intended to speak to-night had been working under similar conditions, but it was only lately that its principles had been openly .advocated. Those who had written most of it were meii who knew the least of the principles it enunciated, and it was full time that those who approved and believed in its power for good to try and expound the principles they advocated. It was gradually dawning on the great masses of mankind that the days of' strikes and labor conflict^, the only weapon ?of Old Unionism, was past, not that it could be truthfully asserted at any time that...

MELBOURNE TRADES COUNCIL CRIES "MORE PROTECTION" (??) [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 28 May 1892

MELBOURNE TRADES COUNCIL CRIES 'MORE PROTECTION' (* ?) [By J. W. F.l It is obvious that poverty in Melbourne is more widespread than ever — an evidence that protection neither lessens nor prevents it. And yet the Trades Hall Council last Friday evening carried a motion calling for a public meeting to consider ways and 'means for rais ing the tariff. The bootmakers had the tariff raised excessively about four years ago, and the trade, to which I belong, is worse now than ever. Wages have decreased, sweating prevails, and in some factories the ' ' boss' makes what terms he likes with the operatives. And still they ask for more protection. It is absurd to imagine that an increased tariff will give any praotical benefit to trades men. They want .protection against the unjust system of boy labor so extensively practised in Melbourne and elsewhere. The tendency of any tariff is to build up monopolies, centralize the population, and increase competition. I believe the Council knows this, b...

A VISIT TO ST. HELENA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 28 May 1892

A VISIT TO ST. HELENA. ? ♦ ? [By Abthur Rae.1 Saint Helena is the penal establishment of Queensland for long-sentence male prisoners. It is situated on a rather low, rocky little island in Moreton Bay, at the mouth of the Brisbane River. It would weary your readers to relate a full account of the difficulty I had to get permission from -the Hon. H. Tozer, Colonial Secretary of Queensland, to visit our shearer mates who were sentenced to three years imprisonment 011 that little convict-island by the notorious Judge Harding, during the great Queensland Labor struggle of last year. I went up to Brisbane Labor Demonstra tion last Christmas time, and tried my level best to obtain permission to see our fellow Unionists, but without avail. You see there were some pretty rough and bitter things said- during the demonstration, and some cruelly- true cartoons of the members of the Ivanaka Ministry, and of course poor old Tozer felt a bit sore about it. I hadn't said anything personal to put m...

SYDNEY UNEMPLOYED. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 28 May 1892

SYDNEY UNEMPLOYED. Dear Hummer, Poor scarless, invisibly bleeding- humanity ! Such are thousands of the starving1 un employed resident in Sydney — or do they call it ' ' starvation point' — in this year of our Lord 1892 P Money is tight everywhere ; the middle class and workers as usual feeling it most acutely. Bastard freetrade is out, and bastard protection is in, yet misery is grow ing', unless a fall in the price of bodies to let is an evidence of prosperity. On Sunday last Geo. Black, M.L.A., lec tured in Leigh House on village settlement. He held his audience from first to last, and gave all who heard him a valuable lesson on the ? land question, and closed his address, amidst tremendous applause, with a magnifi cent peroration on the dangerous good for nothing, bar evil, Upper House. You can bet ten cents to nothing that the days of the House in question are numbered. Soon the People will be their own Upper House, if the workers are true to themselves. . , - Objections of the...

History repeats itself. Tiberius, the Roman agitator, spoke thusly to those from Avhom the land had been stolen by the wealthy : — ' The wild beasts of Italy have their caves to retire to, but the brave men Avho spill their blood in her cause haAre no thing left but air and light. Without houses, without any settled habitations, they wander from place to place Avith their AviAres and children; and their generals do but mock them, when, at the head of their armies, they exhort their men to fight for their sepulchres and domestic gods ; for, among such num bers, perhaps there is not a Roman avIio has an altar that belonged to his ancestors, or a sepulchre in Avhich their ashes rest. The priArate soldiers fight and die to advance the wealth and luxury of the great ; and they are called masters of the world, while they have not a foot of ground in their possession.' The same thing applies to day, exactly. -

BALLOTS AND BULLETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 28 May 1892

BALLOTS AND BULLETS. Dear Hummer, A Sydney scribe in an article in the Yass Tribwic on the Labor-Day meeting in Sydney Domain on the 1st inst., says : — ' Even the possession of a rifle, honestly come by, im plies the exercise of industry, self-denial, and thrift.' This is quite true, and he ad vises those who talk about ' one man one rifle' to. knock off - their grog, tobacco, etc.', and stick to tlieir next job long enough to save the price of a rifle. Now, that's iust the best advice I've struck for a long time. It may be seditious, but that's his fault, not mine. Our Tory Governments all over the world tell us that the only way to preserve peace is to be ready for war. If that is so, remember that what is good for the swarm is good for the bee, and if we had a rifle apiece we might get more justice without using them, than with all our votes. Any way, ' peace with a rifle' isn't such a lop sided game as war without one, and I'm going to get ready for a long and prosperous peace ...

OUR SISTERS' COLUMN. Deae, Huaotee, — 14 ' - , ' Don't you think it is about time we women had ai Union ? - ' About a month ago,1 in Sydney, two hard working respectable girls 'of my acquaintance were pretty hard up.' 'They had been ,o tit of' employment for some time, and although they haunted the registry' offices day after day they could not get employment: 'At first they were a little particular in trying -to get situations at the same place, but' soon found it wise to take anything- that turned up. However, after waiting sonie time, they managed to get the offer of places together at Waverley: ' ' They at once accepted, and, having paid the registry man, they started out for their new home with only two shillings between them. 1 But you can imagine the surprise of 'those young women when, on arrival at their destination,' they were quietly informed by the mistress that she had, on private recommendation', engaged two ser vants that day. She would give them a note to the registr...

MELBOURNE NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 4 June 1892

MELBOURNE NOTES [By J. W. F.] The. Single Tax League held its annual at the Coffee Palace, Bourke-street, last Mon day night. The President (Mr Max Hirsh) delivered an eloquent address, and referred to the widespread destitution, and the thou sands of men unemployed as being deplorable. He showed that taxing land values would abolish poverty, break down monopolies, and speedily bring about equity. He also spoke of the progress of the Single Tax movement, and remarked that the Labor Party had adopted the taxing of land values in its platform . The League had organized branches in the suburbs ; also a letter- writing corps had been formed. Mr Hirsh was re-elected President amidst loud applause. * # * Dr. Maloney moved a motion in the House the other evening that all interest over 10 percent, go to the State. There was no seconder.
