MANIFESTO. TO THE ELECTORS OF THE MURRUMBIDGEE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 18 June 1892

MANIFESTO — ? ? ♦ ? TO THE ELECTORS OF THE MURRUMBID GEE . Fellow Electors, — After a lengthy session, with the results of which you are all pretty well familiar, Par liament prorogued on the 1st' of April, and, as Premier Dibbs has gone to England, it is not likely to re-assemble until his return, the date of which is uncertain . Since the adjournment I liave been visit ing some portions of the electorate on a private tour of observation. I have not ad dressed any meeting as yet; believing it better to do so just before Parliament re opens. I am going to New Zealand for a few weeks to pay a long-promised visit to my parents and other relatives, and before going wish to acquaint you with the fact and give you a brief idea of my inten tions for next session. While on tliis subject I may say that I have a pretty intimate knowledge of New Zealand, and having letters of introduction to some of the leading men in that colony, I hope to gain much useful information concerning many politic...

The Toilers and Tillers! The Spoilers and Spillers! [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 18 June 1892

I The Toilers and Tillers! The Spoilers and Spillers 1 u The Farmers of America are fast realizing tlie fact that their interests and those of the wage-earners are bound up together; that rent, interest, and profit-mongering are robbing both classes alike ; and the Knights of Labor and Farmers Alliance have joined hands to, Overthrow them, and create a People's Party independent of both the old political parties, which, there and here, have been ' weighed in the balances and found wanting.' I trust that the Farmers Unions and Labor Party of New South Wales will eventually do the same, and, by mutual assistance, secure that justice which neither can obtain alone'. - M.L.A. Rue's Miirrumbidgee Mamjesto.

HERE AND THERE IN THE BACK COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 18 June 1892

HERE AND THERE IN THE BACK COUNTRY. TBy 'Paroo.' Great numbers of strange faces here this year, and not all white faces either. Charlie ' Tegart, A.S.U. agent at Collarendabri, says ' ' there are more men travelling about up there this season than he has ever seen before at this time of the year.' Yet the Labor Bureau still continues sending 'em on. One of the lads on Goohdabluie Station reckons Whitely King's ad., which he saw in The Hummer, was very moderate. He says Mr King should have asked for applicant's photo., and a true, history of his life, etc. The Wagga „Sec.'s ad. every. Union man . should act up to—' Unionism means that all members should have an equal chance of em ployment.' Arthur Rae's letter on ' Abbottisms, ' pub lished in a Bourke paper, is greatly admired. The ' ' Wingem' ' prophet should squirm .when he reads it. Awful unkind, though, to keep jogging his memory about ' that com- - mon shearer fellow,' Tom Williams. * * # AtBomba Station (Q,.) the gentle squatte...

THE STRAIGHT WIRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 18 June 1892

THE STRAIGHT WIRE. BY 'HELLO CENTRAL.' The event of next week will be the Farmers Conference to be held at 'Wagga. Most of the large farmers of Hiverina will be represented thereat, and a few small ones. It may be only a coincidence, but we gather from a, glance at the names of delegates who have been selected to voice the troubles of the farmers, that the land-jobber is to be very largely represented. Perhaps it would be a difficult matter to find selectors who do not make the use of selections subservient to the traffic in land. That the trading side of the business, therefore, should be very much in evidence at the Conference is not a matter for surprise. ?» #? * Our present lop-sided land laws offer, a premium to land jobbing, and the consequence is that the bona fide land users are altogether neglected, and the country generally is suffering from the evil effects of land monopoly to a greater extent than ever. 'What is the use of placing people on the land if the law and the pr...

THE FRESH AIR LEAGUE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 25 June 1892

THE FRESH AIR LEAGUE Ai ? ? . . It is not generally 'known that there exists in Sydney- — in fact, has existed for many years— a company- or syn dicate formed to buy up all the fresh air of the city .and suburbs, and sell it again at so much per cubic foot, the price ranging according to a variety of circumstances. Such is, neverthe less, the case. , The Company's shares are now very high, although they are seldom quoted on the market. lhe reason ox this is the fear that masses of the people who are too j-oor to buy sufficient air for their health and comfort would rise up in .revolt and effect a sweeping change if they once thoroughly understood the cause of the scarcity of fresh air. You see, the- Company is too cunning to mono polise all the air, or to sell what they do own by the name of air. That ' would look too much like robbery, because it is generally believed that air, being necessary to existence, it is the property of the whole animate creation. Water andtland, however, ...

HERE AND THERE IN THE BACK COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 25 June 1892

HERE AND THERE IN THE BACK COUNTRY. [By 'Paroo.' Hugh Langwell, M.P., left here on Sunday morning for Sydney. He takes with him a petition with about six hundred signatures — from all parts of the electorate— attached, asking for remission of the four months' ira prisoment to. be yet undergone by George Brown in connection with the alleged Byrock riot cases of last August. The reason set forth is that by keeping him in until the ex piration of his term, he would lose the whole of the shearing seasdn. George is learning the boot-making trade, and he bears an ex- ? cellent character. We all wish Hughie suc cess in his endeavors. * # # .

SOCIALISM. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 25 June 1892

SOCIALISM. / Dear Hummer, Does it strike you that the writer of the excellent leading article on ' Too Much Government,'^ in your issue of tlie 11th inst.y make's a straight case against the worst feature of Socialism, namely, its destruction of reasonable individual and industrial free dom ? 'The abuse of power by the Execu tive of the A.S.U. in regard to the Bourke and Wagga Branches, aptly illustrates what 7 may be expected to happen on a national scale and in a greater variety of particulars when all. industrial enterprise was reduced to Government control, and the State became the ? only employer. Granted Socialism could provide work and bread for everybody, yet seeing man does not live by bread alone, the benefit of getting fed would be dearly bought at the expense of liberty. Were there' no other remedy against the monstrous wrongs of monopoly, slavery, and starvation, one might subscribe to the tyranny of authority, in spite of its draw backs, as a relief from the still more...

Mr Jas. . M'Darra was in the ?chair. Mr Clark said it might, be asked why lie ?was there that evening, being a member of another electorate, to say anything to tlieni ' upon the political situation. However, he was there chiefly by arrangement' of his temperance friends, to whom he had pro mised to give a lecture. He was speaking to Mr Rae, one of the Murrumbidgce members, ?of his intended visit, and told him that if the workers of Wagga would listen to anything he had to say, he would be quite willing to take an extra day and address them on the political situation.

NOTES FROM MONARO. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 25 June 1892

NOTES FROM MONARO. [By Alpine.] Already the boys are leaving their nioun 'tain fastnesses for the lower country and early sheds, and by the general tone I think themselves, cuddies, and pack-sticks will be the first intimation of their presence on the stations. In some few cases letters may have preceded them, but letters only, and unless I .misjudge the lads very much there has been no ' filthy lucre' ' in the . shape of twenty shillings passed between them and tlie Lords of the Land.' # * *? Some of our chaps wrote to a large shed on the back blocks of the Lachlan for a pen and ? got the usual reply — to wit, plank down your ?stuff, \ or, in other words, .give us enough to gaol you with, if things don't go right. But the shearers wrote, to say tlieir Avord was 'their bond, and if the squatter did not take that he would get nothing else. * # At a meeting of stock-owners, held in Cooma last week, for the purpose of starting ?chilling works (Pratt, of Myalla, in the ?chair), it was p...
