A PLEA FOR OPEN PLAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 21 July 1910

» A PLEA FOR OPEN PLAY. A letter has been, sent into the A.J.C. requesting that open play be recognised between the governing 'body and the Associated Racing Clubs.1 - This mean's; that jockeys and trainers registered by the A.JiC. will be allowed to ride and train ponies, and as a similar arrange ment. is ? no,w_ in vogue.;? in -Melbourne, at Wren's courses, there is no reason why similar conditio'ns should not prevail in Sydney. It would help associated racing considerably, and bring' it on a level to: what is was years ago w,hen all the pro prietory suburban clubs raced both horses and ? ponies. There is a scarcity of capable' jockeys just now at the associ ated meetings and the inclusion , of the ' registered ' jockeys wo\ild be greatly appreciated by the race-going public. ; ; ? ? ? ? ♦- ?

PRIME MINISTER FISHER ON THE NEED FOR LABOR DAILIES. ; ? . - ' ' ? -♦— ? . - . .'«-... I wotild like to say one word with regard to our position as »- - Party to-day.

GERMAN LABOR CONDITIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 27 July 1910

GERMAN LABOR CONDITIONS. It may be remembered that recently a party, which included, a number of repre sentatives of Trade Unions, went across to Germany from England under the aus pices of the British Tariff Reform League, to study ;the conditions of the workers in that'_country and to ascertain whether the protective, tariff of Germany. had any bearing on the alleged prosperity of G«f man workers in contradistinction to the admitted poverty and hopelessness of the workers in freetrade Great Britain. Mr. W- Pott/ whose impressions and opinions are. recorded hereunder (as. printed in the London ' Clarion ') went, he says, as a Socialist — that is to say, an independent observer, and one Avho 'believes that, nei- ther freetrade or protection holds any decided - advantage for the workers. He wrote as follows: — ' As you are aware, lam a Socialist, hold-' ing. :- no brief for either protectionist or freetrader. - A$ between the English workmen and the German, skilled arid unskilled, I ...

DROPPED OUT OF THE RANKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 27 July 1910

DROPPED OUTOFJHE RANKS. Many members of the A.W.U. . in Vic troia and the Riverina will'- regret to hear of the untimely death, on July 6, of James Stevenson, of Raglan,, near Beaufort, Vic toria. Of the three brothers who fol lowed shearing for many years, Andrew, Jim, and Bob, the latter, who is now farming near Coolambn, is probably the best known, as he put in- several years of strenuous and successful work as an organizer in the early fighting days. Jim Stevenson also did some organizing. work for the old Creswick branch one season, and was a very capable man, but preferred to be in the ranks. He was one of the first to. join^ the Union when David Temple started organizing in. the Riverina in 1S8G, his.\ticket being one of the first twenty-five issued, and he remained a member to the day of his death. It is no flattery of the dead to say that in all the ? qualities that go to make a level-headed, manly man, a .loyal Union ist, a kind husband and father, and a faithful friend, J...

WILCANNIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 27 July 1910

WHCANN1A. Rep. D.e Grey reports that Salisbury called the roll on July 1; a good team of old-time hand-shearers. Like all the sta-' tions out this way, Salisbury has suffered heavy losses. Murtee is to start about the end of the month; at present they' are busy planting vines; I hear. .100,000 are. to be planted as an experiment. This opens out a new industry for this part, and yet with all these possibilities our Wade-Lee Government will . not give us a railway. We hope they 'won't be able to obstruct after the election. Complaints coime in from White Cliffs that men who are away shearing 'r are Ueing struck off the roll. Some of them -are only a f ew ? miles out, -and nearly all are still in the electorate. Is this one of the Reform dodges? Harry Wilson, a well-known river man, ^died in the local hospital.

THRESHING MILL HANDS. AWARD IN NEW ZEALAND. The award delivered .in May last as a result of an appeal by the Canterbury Agricultural employees to the court of Ar bitration in New Zealand was as here under. The men preferred payment by the hour, and claimed Is. 3d. and found; the employers favored the piece-work rate, and offered 10s. to 12s. per 1000 bushels. The award was a compromise. Day wages were fixed at Is. per hour (minimum). Piecework. — Wheat or barley, 13s. per 1000 bushels; oats, 11s. per 1000 bushels. Bagsman to be paid Is. per 1000 extra. Preference to Unionists was granted. Award to operate from September 1, 1910, to September 1, 1912. During1 the pi'ogress of the case Mr. Justice Sim said the court would not fix a maximum rate. The men would not be obliged to work at the minimum fixed if they did not like it.

TO THE TEACHER IN THE BUSH. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 27 July 1910

TO THE TEACHER IN THE BUSH. Dear Worker,— The present- deplorable condition into which the Government of this State has fallen is strikingly illustrative of the danger of entrusting the management of a country to a body of individuals whose vital consideration is to benefit the class to which they belong at the expense of ?? the general mass of the people. Never before in the political history of ^ N.S.W. has the legislative decency of a ' Cabinet been so infinitesimal, or the re liance on 'the servility of its parliamen tary majority so colossal, as to calmly occupy the portfolios of State while lack- ' ing the moral courage to defend their alleged actions, or to refute the accusa tions* .of political 'corruption with which their opponents daily charge them, viz.: That the Ministry makes it a pertal offence to cavil at the wages paid by vends in which Ministers themselves are financially interested;- that it violates the first principle of Magna Charta, by deny ing the right of tri...

THE LABOR DAILY HOW SHALL IT BE OWNED? [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 27 July 1910

THE LABOR DAILY HOW SHALL IT BE OWNED? Some ? members have been inquiring whether it is intended that the proposed Labor Daily shall be based upon shares issued to individuals or whether it shall be Union-owned and controlled. The answer is that it will be Union owned and controlled. To give the other Unions a chance to come in it is imperative that the1 scheme shall be based upon company lines. Com pany law requires that a certain number of persons shall join together to enable .a company to be formed in the first in stance. To comply with this law it has been decided that a certain number of approved persons may come in as founda tion members. The total amount of cash they may pay in only amounts to £100 out of a total of £100,000, and the voting power is based on the money paid in, so that it should be clear they will not have the slightest power to influence .the con trol which the Unions, for whom are reserved the £99,900 worth of shares, will have over the paper. Each foundati...

THE EARNINGS OF SHEARERS [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 27 July 1910

THE EARNINGS OF SHEARERS j A skiterln-a Sydney court reeentlyat- I tempted to cover himself with glory by I claiming -that six years ago he could deal I with 150 to 160 sheep in a clay, and could I earn at shearingup to £S or £9 per week, j Of course the daily papers took up the! parable, and even the ' Pastoralists' Re- I view,' which . knows better, used the J statement to dilate on the enor mous earnings of shearers, and to claim that the rates should be reduced, It is a pity that some men's tongues take charge of them, when they get a bit, out of bounds. _ That man, if lie had been cross-examined at all, would have had- to admit that if he earned £S or £9 one week he might not earn ex penses the next. And it is this factor of uncertainty which helps to make the shearing rate what it is. We know very well that a man- may sometimes put up a good score when the ewes and lambs come in, but we know also what a time he has with the wethers, to say nothing I of the rams, and the wet we...
