POINTS ; FOR A. W.U. MEMBERS FROM BOURKE BRANCH ANNUAL REPORT. Bourke Branch membership exceeds 11,000, an increase of 900 on last year's figures, and nearly 8000 on the figures for 1904, when Mr. White first took up the secretaryship. # * * The A.W.U. is on the rising tide; make tlae most of it, so that when the ebb comes 3'ou will be the better prepared. . . .

OTHER PEOPLE'S VIEWS: AN OPEN COLUMN. THE STATE WASPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 27 July 1910
OTHER PEOPLE'S VIEWS: AM OPEN COLUMN. THE STATE WASPS. Dear Worker, — * The States Spites Premiers are still grumbling and growlins over the Labor Government's financial intentions in re gard to the States. But- what would they have? Fisher proposes to give the States the 25/.- agreed upon at the Premier's Con ference, also to comply with the spirit and letter of the other provisions of that Conference agreement, wherem the Pre miers pledged the States to pay £600,000 towards the estimated Federal shortage. It would now appear that Wade and his fellow Mites want the Commonwealth to let the States off that £600,000, paying the 25/ per head without any deductions whatever. For cool cheek this just about attains the limit. All things considered, the Stages Muddlers may consider them selves very lucky to get the 25/ per head. Personally, the writer thinks the Austra lian Government should not give them half-a-crown per head until they abolish their Legislative Councils. That a Labor Gov...

THE FEDERAL TERRITORY AND ITS PROSPECTIVE VALUE [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 27 July 1910
THE FEDERAL TERRITORY AND ITS PROSPECTIVE VALUE Dear Worker, — ? Now that the Federal Territory has been finally decided upon, it will not be out of place to discuss its possibilities and future value to the Commonwealth. First of all, the Federal Capital should . be laid out on a magnificent5 scale, with wide streets and broad boulevards en circling the proposed city, with squares, parks, etc., and certain parts should be restricted to public buildings, churches, , and costly residences. The whole area should be sub-divided into town ''allotments of a quarter acre each, in suburban lots of from ' one half to two acres, and outlying lots of five acres and upwards. After reserving all the area necessary for the Federal build ings and institutions of public benefit, parks, etc., the remaining ? allotments should be offered to the public, say on a . 50 years' lease, at a fixed yearly rental, the said rents to fie adjusted every 10 years in proportion to the increased value of the area,...
RISKS WE RUN. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 27 July 1910
RISKS WE RUN. Dear Worker,— Owing to the very iarge number of filthy food cases before the courts of late, and which in every instance have been met simply by the infliction of a paltry fine, one is prompted to ask whether, some stronger condemnation of the law is not called for than the usual imputation of asinind qualities. Is it not nearly time that people realised the cruel inconsistency of the laws under which they live in N.S.W. at present. Take the Coercion Act, which is de liberately aimed at the poorer section of the community. Under about 30 headings, 12 months' jail, without trial by jury, is the punishment for .either attempting to better one's own lot or helping others not able to help themselves to do so; while under another law, dealing with the relativeiy rich manufacture of impure food, we find paltry fines are considered quite sufficient in every case for expos ing the community to the risk of whole sale poisoning, which strikes me as about the most callous and cow...

GARINBA P.LL AND A.W.U. AGEHGY. Dear 'Worker, — As a member of the Australian Work ers'-' Union from its infancy up to the Rresenf I respectfully ask a little space in. your widely-read journal to 'fully ex plain .my own and. the position of others connected with the Carinda P.L.L. and A.W.U. agency.- ..Our x-easons for not join ing-the recently-formed P.L.L. in Carinda are purely our objections to Donnohy, the organizer. In 1907 Billy Smith 'was A.'W.U. agent here, when Donnoll3r called a meeting to ask Smith why he should not resign his position as A.W.U. agent, seeing that he (Smith) had worked in the early nineties 'where a Chinese cook was employed. The very time this meeting was called Donnolly was 'boarding at an hotel where a Chinese cook was then em ployed, there being another 'hotel where a Chinese cook had ne^er worked. Smith resigned, and another meeting was- called by Donnolly to fill the vacancy. This man even objected to the meeting being held in Smith's hall, which h...

SHEARING IN THE TRANSVAAL 'SQUATTERS' AND SHEARERS. Senator Buhrmann,- a- . Boer excom mandant, who is now assisting to rule, the country tho British dispossessed him' of, , is at present^ visitor from the Transvaal to 'Australia to buy stud sheep, so that' South Africa may. in the near future be- v come the serious rival of .Australia in the world's^ wool trade. Interviewed ori the question of labor supply for the pas toralists in the Transvaal, Senator Buhr mann said that they have difficulty in getting labor unless they have 'squat- ters.' -The term there has: a different significance to what is attached to it in Australia. ' Squatters,' 'or- ' pluckcrs,' in the Transvaal are mostly natives who go and settle on the land with the 'con- sent of the owner. In return for this great privilege to live on their oyvn*'s©il the natives give services to the white, owner. The law limits 'the number of^ such squatters.
