THE WESTERN LAND BOARD. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 December 1918

THE WESTERN LAND BOARD. The Western Land Board consists of three Commissioners who administer the land laws over the entire Western division of this State, comprising some 80,000,000 acres, mostly pastoral lands let on lease bold tenure. The term of appointment was originally ?even years. ~ During the existence of the Carruthers Ashton Government it was seriously con templated merging the Western Land Board into a similar body to act for the whole State. This scheme met with such Strong opposition that it was eventually abandoned. Meanwhile the seven years' ' term expired and twice the Commission ers were re-appointed for a single year. On the coming into' office of the Mc Gowen Labor Government the Commis sioners, with some change in the person nel. wiM re-appointed fo? a further teiia of seven years, which expired at the end of 1917. The present Lands Minister Ashford again foreshadowed some drastic cnanges, and again a one-year renewal .of office was arranged pending consideratio...

PROPOSALS FOR NEXT A.I.P. CONFERENCE. WOLLONGONG GOES ALL THE WAY. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 December 1918

PROPOSALS FOR NEXT A.L.P. CONFERENCE. WOLLONGONG GOES ALL THE WAY. The resolutions for next Conference have been forwarded for publication. Their paramount importance justifies their careful study by all Laborites who realise that the present days' are pregnant with the future fate of generations yet unborn. To meet from all parts of this vast State and sit long nights in solemn conclave, to discuss and squabble over the usual trivialities which engage the attention of Conference, is about as sensible as it would be for a condemned criminal to worry about the fit of his clothes on the way to the gallows. (a) That the objective of the Party be the establishment of a state of social de mocracy, in which the entire means of wealth production shall be owned and controlled by the community of workers, industrially organised; (b) That this be the sole issue at future elections', In order that a clear ana de-. finite mandate may be given by the elec tor*, thus enabling the Party's represen...

A CHANGE OF HEART. THE PEOPLE AND THE POLITICIANS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 December 1918

A CHANGE OF HEART. THE PEOPLE AND THE POLITICIANS. The chief peril of the hour is an at tempt to restore the sham Parliamentary system after the war; to stage again the old pantomime scene, with its two paste board wings fronting each other. It is hard to realise this, because it is hard to realise a' strange* kind of dull impu dence which is the mark of the modern politician. He is brazen, and his brass does not even glitter; be is hardened more by materialism than cynicism. Just as he was shameless enough to make Rufus Isaacs Lord Chief Justice, even after the Marconi case, so he will be shameless enough to bring out the old party flags and badges even after the war. He is in sensible; and, above all, insensible to laughter. What we shall see, and are seeing, therefore, in the conventional capitalist press is an increasing praise of Parliamentarism. It appears simultane ously in both the -two types of fashionable paper, which we may define roughly as the type that pretends to- be ...

SYDNEY COAL LUMPERS' UNION. Mechanics' Institute, Miller's Point, 12/12/'18. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 December 1918

SYDNEY COAL LUMPERS' UNION. Mechanics' Institute, Miller's Point, 12/12/'18. Sir,— We are in possession of informa tion to the effect that news is being cir culated in the Newcastle .district and other mining and industrial centres that there is plenty of work in Sydney for coal lumpers. The men who are circulating this news are officials of the scab union, created during the recent strike by Beeby and the shipping companies. You are doubtless aware that since the industrial upheaval of 1917 the shipping companies have victimised the members of this Union, not one of them being al lowed to return to his former work. Owing to the scarcity of shipping the em ployers have been able to carry on with the scabs, but now that the shipping is likely to become busy the employers who are running the Port Jackson Coal Work ers' Union (scab union) are endeavoring to induce -men to join this employers' union by having reports circulated that the Sydney Coal Lumpers' Union has dis banded. On beha...

PROPORTIONAL REPRESENTATION. A LOST OPPORTUNITY. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 December 1918

[?] A LOST OPPORTUNITY. This paper is not enthusiastic about any proposed ? electoral reform, ' because we want a complete change — that is, a 're- volution' in all the forms and objects of government. Nevertheless anything which makes for simplicity, elimination of waste, and the scrapping of inefficient moss grown methods has its value -as clearing away obstacles to still further and deeper changes. Proportional voting is a scientific toy elaborately devised to please grown-up children. ? The idea that it will abolish all the evils of our present political system, and lead to the choice of pure, brave, honest, cap able, incorruptible legislators, endowed by Heaven with the desire and the ability to hand out the millennium in chunks, is simply a harmless form of lunacy. As, however, mankind has always been obsessed with, a belief in the high moral value of the things it least understands, proportional voting may fill the bill for a time without doing much damage. When nations' have...

OUR POLITICAL SYSTEM. WHAT OF THE FUTURE? [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 December 1918

mm pffliicAt sYSiffl; WHAT^F-THE FUTURE? ; When the true function of political- ac tion is recognised- and adapted to modern needs,, the present system of representa tion of. geographical districts will be swept out of existence, and industrial interests substituted for areas. Another great change will certainly be the adop tion of the principle of electing dele gates to Parliament to carry out cer tain work entrusted \w- them, just . as we now elect delegates to conferences' on all kinds of matters, such delegates resum ing their ordinary avocations when the business referred to them has been dis posed of. v At present members of Parliament, par ticularly Labor members, are frequently proved guilty of betraying the class which placed them there to protect and advance their interests. This is more the fault of the system than of the men. A toiler elected to Parliament is lifted by his own class out of their own ranks into another class, the bourgeois or middle class, and he associat...

SMASHING THE UNIONS. STEEL WORKS TACTICS. By Z.N.V., in Newcastle "Argus," 13/12/'18. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 December 1918

SMASHING THE IJNttJNS. STEEL WORKS TACTICS. By Z.N.V., in Newcastle 'Argus,' 13/12/JS. ?The Broken Hill Proprietary Company fe now getting in its fine work. It hates the idea of the wage slaves having any Choice. There must be only one organisa tion, and that the 'association' which per .-:? petually basks in the smile of the com pany. In these days it is not popular to drive slaves with a whip as in ye olden times, but there are equally effective methods of keeping the modern wage slaves in subjection. Owing to the activities of different or ganisers, and to the fact that the workers employed in the compound are beginning to see that the bosses' union is extremely detrimental to their interests, men are looking askance at an association which they realise is designed by the master class as a model for the mills and factories of the Commonwealth. Indeed it is said that recently there have been about 200 withdrawals. It is good to think that when workers -discover that they have fool...

BRITISH ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 December 1918

BRITISH ELECTIONS. The British general elections took place on 'Saturday last, December 14. The cables give no results, but state that the count won't be made for a fortnight, until the soldiers' ballots from abroad can be counted with the home-grown product, i As Mr. Dooley, the American philoso pher, told the late President Kruger ot South Africa, it doesn't so much matter, who does the voting as who does tfe$ counting. Under these circumstances Lloyd George's prospects of success look par ticularly rosy. , BPARTAKUS. ,

THE REASON. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 December 1918

THE REASON. The 'Economist' (August 24) explains the importance of the military expedition to Baku and unconsciously gives the ex planation of Allied aggression against Russian workers: ' 'The oil fields of the districts produced in 1S15 451,900,000 poods of oil. This fig ure was reduced in 1916 to 379,000,000 and in 'March, 1917, the average daily output,' was 758,000 poods. This district is far and away the greatest oil field in Russia, and, obviously, control of it is a war asset of some magnitude. The reduction in yield may be wholly or partly due to war rea sons. The aggregate paid up capital ot British companies engaged in the Cau-: casian oil industry is £21,665,878. Not less than £40,000,000 of Allied capital has been invested in the industry. It may easily be seen why Germany and' Turkey (and the Allies) were anxious to get hold of this rich property, and it is a matter tor; congratulation that it has slipped mt «f their hands. Germany has lost boti. the Caucasian and the R...

BEWARE OF THE PLAGUE. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 December 1918

BEWARE OF THE PLAGUE. The pneumonic-influenza plague exists in Fremantle, West Australia, where, as in Sydney, it is confined to quarantine. Owing to its deadly character, particu larly in large, congested populations such as that of Sydney and . its environs, and the possibility ot its escape from the quar antine area, the people are strongly ad vised to be inoculated as a preventive measure. Inoculation is performed free of charge at several depots within the metropolitan area. It is not claimed that inoculation en-, tirely prevents infection, but that it ren ders any attack much less malignant, and therefore more. easily cured. All those concerned deserve every credit for keeping the plague within the quaran tine area, and for gradually overcoming its virulence. The saddest features of the outbreak are that many of the soldier-victims had re turned after long service abroad and were stricken down almost within sight of their distracted relatives, who on account of the infectious ...

LEAGUE MEETINGS. CENTRAL BANKSTOWN BRANCH. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 December 1918

LEAGUE MEETINGS. SSSi CENTRAL BANKSTOWN BRANCH, The above League, held its usual 'fort- nightly meeting on Thursday evening, the 12th inst, in Mr. S. Davis's room, South Terrace, Bankstown, and was again favored with a good attendance. Three new members were accepted. It was resolved — 'That the Canterbury State Electoral Council be written to re commending that the Labor League at Reyesbyr (which, has. become, extinct) be re-established, as it would greatly streng then the Labor Movement in the East Hills district.' : ,The long-standing: question of property creating a nuisance from slop water, etc., has at last reached a definite point by the receipt .of a communication from Geo. Cann, M.L.A., forwarding copy of the Local Government Act, which empowers the municipal council to deal with this matter. The question of proportional represen tation was lengthily discussed, and it was decided that Mr. A. G. Huie be invited to address the League at an early date on this subject. The adjo...

A MAD AND INFAMOUS PROPOSAL. "What shall it profit a man (or a nation) if he gain the whole world and lose his soul?"—The Bible. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 December 1918

MR. JOHN STOREY. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 December 1918

MR. JOHN STOREY. Mr. Storey's record as leader of th«i State Labor Party is another instance oH a man's displaying unexpected, qualities ofl - leadership when the opportunity arrives^ When he took control of the Party, the! Labor team in Parliament was -sorely de-4 pleted in numbers. Later on it 'was Yein-«? forced chiefly by men inexperienced in Parliamentary work, some of them, in fact* having never seen the inside of Parlian ment House till they came to take their* place as members. The Movement at thai time was 'groggy,' having been unable toi find its feet after the disruption conse-i quent on the conscription question. Many;, inside the Movement were more willing to criticise than to help. Mr. Storey's path.' was soon impeded by many awkward pro-: blems, which might have taxed the re-: sources of a much more experienced leader, yet at the end of the second session ho emerges with a greatly enhanced prestige amongst friends and opponents alike.

THE LIMITS OF SELF-DETERMINATION. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 December 1918

THE LIMITS OF SELF* DETERMINATION. When President Wilson- introduced the prindiple of ; self -determination for small nations' into international politics he either delivered himself of a pious plati tude or asserted a self-evident ethical truth. Pious platitudes have always been most useful counters in the game of poli tics whether of a local or an international character, but ethical truths are mental and moral high explosives. - Tom Paine introduced an ethical, truth concerning equal human rights to life, liberty, and happiness into the original American Declaration of Independence, with most disastrous subsequent results to vested interests in chattel slavery. American politicians have been trying ever since the Declaration, of Independence to reduce the ethical truth referred .to dawn to- the limits of a pious platitude and have only partially succeeded. The difficulty about Pious platitudes even ia that some people take them seriously, which always leads to trouble; The old Bu...

STUDIES IN NATURAL HISTORY. No. IV. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 December 1918

STUDIES IN NATURAL HISTORY. No. IV. Jtiew Zealand is noted for the enormous number of rivers and mountains it pos sesses. They are cause and effect, be cause the high mountains store the win ter's snows which more or less slowly dis solve through the summer and autumn, s, and are really huge reservoirs feeding the creeks and rivers which spring from their sides, The islands, ate long- -aW relatively narrow, which causes the majority of the rivers to be short and- swift. Consequently few of them are navigable very. far from their mouths. New Zealand Is also noted for the scar city of animal life and fresh water fish, indigenous to the country, and for the re markable way in which nearly air im ported animals and fish flourish and mul tiply.
