BOURKE BREEZES [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 4 June 1892
BOURKE BREEZES Deae, Hummer, We are all really sorry i he Executive Council of the A.S.U. has refused permission to the Wagga Branch to enter into co-operative contracting. T6 is now 18 months since a ballot of the members was authorized on this question, ' and it is a standing disgrace to the other branches that Wagga was the only one which carried out its duties in this respect. The ballot in that Branch was declared in favor by an overwhelming majority, and how, in tne face of this, the Council can justify its refusal. remains to be seen. Its a problem wh^ch will have to be faced at some time, and I am of the ' opinion that it would ' be good policy in any case to allow the Wagga Branch to make a start. Yes,' of course it is possible % they, might fail in the first attempt ; but such a failure, by showing the delects, would only direct, the way to ultimate success. Anyway, axmrt from that, I for one don't like the' idea of punihhing one branch for the negligence of others. Its ju...

HENRY GEORGE ON COMPETITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 4 June 1892
HENRY GEORGE ON COMPETI TION. Dear Hummer, Bob M' Cook is on the warpath, and I cal culate he has dragged a mighty lot of wool over his eyes, to say nothing of the fog which enveloped his mind when he asserts that the community do not create the value of implements of production. Reckon rail ways, ships, and machinery are the result of population. Certainly they would be value less were the population of the world limited to a few families. Edison's inventions would never have been known had there been no miners, no boiler-makers, coal lumpers, builders, bricklayers, butchers, bakers, sea men, and other laborers of every grade and calling. Honestly, the wants and needs of the inhabitants of the world created Edison and every other inventor, also poets, novel ists, economists, etc. Just here I want to assure Bob M'Cook that I mentioned inven tors particularly because I have a notion that a few more inventions will see the light, dud I don't risk the inventions to imagine that they ar...

ITJCINDA SHARPE ON 'PLACE- MENT.' If you've ever had the toothache, you ought to know the meaning of ' nostrums.' The first body you meet says that St. Bar tholomew's Oil Avill be a sure cure, and the ' next -feels hurt if you don't put a piece of cat-skin in your boot, and another one- sug- gests cooked onions as a poultice, and others won t be satisfied until you have made yourself blind witli pinches of snuff or sick with a piece of tobacco — and still your teeth keep on aching, and will stick to it until somebody happens to, let you know ?that as long as you're well otherwise your teeth won't bother you a little bit, andthat the real cure is to get your liver into working ?order, and to loose your corset strings, and not wear tight boots. When you've tried that, and found it work like a charm, it suddenly dawns on you that to try to 'cool 'boiling water without taking it off the fire is an easy thing compared to trying to ease :an ache Avhile .' the cause of the ache is at work ...

HENRY GEORGE ON COMPETITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 11 June 1892
HENRY GEORGE ON COMPETI TION. Dear Hummer, Larry Petri e, to whom I send greeting, is quite right. It is the community and not the individual laborer that makes all goods. ' ' The wants and needs of the inhabitants of the world,' to use his own words, 'make' everything. . Consequently, the loafing sun downer and the loafing landowner stand on the same level as the industrious worker. They all have the same wants and needs, and as these wants and needs, and not labor, make everything, they all are equally entitled to the result of the workers' labor. Therefore, I have resolved to do no more work. Why should I, seeing that my wants and needs remain the same, .whether I work or not, and that these will make all things which I do want ? That labor, the — individual labor of individual men, makes everything, is one of the exploded' fallacies of a degenerate civilization. All men can be idle, and yet all will have ^everything they want. Hurrah for Socialism, and the coming Revolution — wi...
THE LAND FOR THE PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 11 June 1892
THE LAND FOR THE PEOPLE . — w ? The following is an extract from Arthur Rae's manifesto to his constituents : — 1 ' ' In this connection I would reply to the ac cusation levelled at me, that I ain guilty of the crime of being a ' Single Taxer,' by saying that although. the assertion is not true, it is either blind malice or ignorant prejudice to attach- discredit to a mere word, and condemn doctrines without attempting to refute them. The 13th plank of the Labor Platform on which I was elected demands—' The recog nition in our Legislative enactments of ,the natural and inalienable rights of the whole community, to the land — upon which all must live, and from which by Labor all wealth is produced — by the taxation of that value which accrues to land by the presence and needs of the community, irrespective of im provements effected by. hunian exertion.' Great, as are the reforms to be advocated by the Farmers' Conference, they will only be partial in effect and of temporary benefit u...
MELBOURNE NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 11 June 1892
MELBOURNE NOTES- I [By J. W. F.] I Three hundred starving women, with babies in arms, paraded through the streets of Mel bourne last Wednesday. One lady, a heroine, speaking to her. sisters, said: ' Conie put ! Show yourselves! Don't be ashamed! Your little ones are 'crying for bread which you cannot supply. Some of your children are without clothes or shoes, and you keep them in doors. Watch them slowly starve to death. Why ? Because the fear of shame terrorises and prevents you from openly demonstrating to the world that, you and yours are very much in need. ^Sisters, I know,' she said, ' it, is hard to be poor, and let the world know it, because the world frowns on poverty. But think! Your little ones are dying! They Want, nourish ing, and you shut them up. What do you do ? Listen ! You slowly mnrder those children whom you love dearly.' These women then proceeded to the Age office, and gave three groans for that capitalistic sheet. Then the police began to bustle the helpless wo...
