From Our Own Correspondent. Sydney, July 9,1891. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 25 July 1891

From Our Own Correspondent. Sydney, July 9, 1891. The labour party-held a caucus meeting last Saturday night (July 4) to transact general business and select a leader. As some difficulty cropped up in determining the actual strength of the party, Messrs. Hou^hton, Cotton, and George Black were appointed a committee -to examine the cre dentials of the 36 members whose names appear on the roll, and so arrive at the netual ^enisnc nuinber. Considerable time jffiftsjoccupied also in explaining the position of affairs to the country members so that the necessary solidity and oneness, without which success is so uncertain, might be ob &ined. rWith this — preliminarv ^business hanging around in the way an adjournment was- inaHe^^iH^Mond ay next, when it is reasonably Expected a leader will be selected' There are various rumours ^afloat cSncerninc: the leadership, but anybody who knows any thing at all' abnut it fancies the choice will fall on George Black, who by possibilify^ind ge...

THE VOICE OF THE PULPIT. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 25 July 1891

THE VOICE OF THE PULPIT. Thus Cardinal Gibbons, the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Baltimore, U.S., in the North Atnerioan Review for April :— - _ The economic conditions in the United-States are fast approaching those of England. The homes of the poor are more marked by destitution -and aqnalnr; fchft tight, nf hpnvpr) jb h^tng nlosefl littt trom~mi6era,ble tenement ronn\ anfj^^jo; flesh and blood are becoming tuore ^beap and bread more dear; the welWeing of the oar horse IB more soucitoceiy watoned than that of the driver.

THE EDITORIAL MILL. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 25 July 1891

T THETDITORlflnittT^ Sir S: W. * Griffith, wincing under the iitunistakeable manifestations of public disapproval of the stand taken by Govern ment and Parliament upon the motion for enquiry into the recent labour dispute, said at Gympie that :— In his view there wai» no Parliament in 'Aiistra- ? lia more anxious than that of Queensland to do all in its power to remove all existing grievances or hindrances and to enable every man to do the best be oould for himself.

Our Minority Parliament. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 25 July 1891

Onr Minority Parliament. ? The Government's Crown Land Act re peals the desirable survey before-seleetion conditions of the 184 act, and makes a specious pretence of assisting oo operative settlement, by providing practically that the Minister for Lands may at his discretion permit the residence fenh~that~oneisettlBr : — plus in over sue uiuumuui r«nuieuut)rwuuireu by fiwrto count in on the residencBiraaiificai tion of another selector.

THE VOTE OF THANKS DEBATE. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 25 July 1891

THE VOTE OF THANKS DEBATE. The other night I got the blues and tried to smile in vain, I couldn't chuck a chuckle at the foolery of Twain ; When Ward and Billings failed to bring a twinkle to my eye, I turned my eyes to Hansard of the fifteenth of July.                     I laughed and roared until I thought that I was growing fat, And all the boarders came to see what I was laughing at;         It rose the risibility of some, I grieve to state — That foolish speech of Brentnall's in the Vote of Thanks debate.         Oh, Brentnall, of the olden school and cold sarcastic style!
