THE PROBLEM OF IMMIGRATION. IV. Influence of Immigration on the Labour Market. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 1 May 1908
THE PROBLEM OF IMMI G RATION. 'IV. Influence of Immigration the Labour Market., ALT. n the .'arguments regarding the econo'mlq gain tq this country through Immigration proceed from the stand point ot the production of wealth, They ignore the character and social Influ ence of the- immigrant, and content themselves with -showing the advantage of having command of tills Increased labour force, which Is furnished us free of charge l>y other countries. Too often, also, they pass over a second ? question, which, from the purely econo mic standpoint, deserves consideration. That Is: What effect has this constant Immigration- on the labour already here?-on Its wages, its standard of living, and its contentment? Tills ques tion is 110 less.important than the pre ceding one-in fact, In- many respects It Is more important. For the first is merely a question of liiore or less rapid growth in material wealth, which, iu the present condition of Australia, is a matter of minor importance. But ...

How Inscots Speak. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 1 May 1908
How Insoots Speak. !Are insects dumb? They are, says Dr. Henry M'Cook, if wo tliink of 'languago 'ns a vocal medium for con voying thought and emotion from ono individual to others. For insects have no true voico, nor organs of speech such as bolong to "articulate speaking men." Thoy also lack the means of uttering tho'cries that charactoriso birds and brutes. But if we take language as simply an understandable medium for express ing emotions, insects are thus endowed. Thoy oxpress oinotioris by bodily ges tures. And mimetic languages, though far more limited, is not less intolligiblo than vocal specch. Indeed, argues our authority, a glance of tho oye, a move ment of tho hand, a shrug of tho shoulder, a stamp of tho foot, a toss of tho head, may betray in mail the truo thought or feeling', even when spoken language is used to conconl it.
