DEMOBILISATION. General Monash, in charge of demobilis   ing A.I.F. men, says it will take twelve months. Says he cannot hurry up be yond that for want of sufficient ships. He expects some 25 to 30 ships will leave     England between now and the end of   January bringing back 25,000 Aussies.     Other reports say that Britain is so badly in need of Australian produce and raw material that plenty of ships are of fering to freight it, and these can bring     Australian soldiers home.

AN ENDOWMENT FOR CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 28 December 1918

AN ENDOWMENT FOR CHILDREN. Sir, — I hail the advent of your paper as another to be put on my list for regular reading, striving, as I always do, to get at both sides of a question. And I trust I will be credited with an earnest desire for the greatest good of the greatest number, even though my views as to how this may be brought to pass may not always ac cord with the sentiments of your journal. I would therefore beg for your support for my proposal that serious consideration should at once be given to the question of how to make better provision for the children of the most poorly paid workers. I. want to do something for these children NOW, and cannot wait for the coming of any Co-operative or Socialistic Common wealth. These children, especially those that are members of large families, do not get suf ficient nourishment, are imperfectly clad and housed, and fail to obtain a proper start in life. . Now the only practical remedy I can see at hand to-day is to pay an endow ment fo...

THE CORANGAMITE BY-ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 28 December 1918

THE CORANGAMITE BY-ELECTION. Corangamite (Vic.) Federal by-election has resulted on the final count in a win for the Country Party candidate by a sub stantial majority, although the Labor can didate, J. H. Scullin, had a lead in number one votes of close on four thousanl votes. There were five candidates, representing Labor, Nationalism, Country Party, Inde pendent, and Returned Soldiers. The first count put the Returned Sol diers' candidate out, he polling the fewest votes. The second count dropped the In dependent out. The third count settled the Nationalist, and the fourth and final count transferred over 6600 Nationalist votes to the Farmers' candidate and only 177 to the Labor man. The preferential system of voting has, therefore, in its first practical test in Federal politics had the curious effect of putting the Labor man 4000 votes ahead on the first or No. 1 count, and leaving him almost the same number behind on the final count. - While this system works fairly well in a ...

SOME XMAS "WHIZZBANGS" FROM FRANCE. HOW THE AUSSIES JOKE IN THE FACE OF DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 28 December 1918

SOMEXMAS'WHIZZBANGS' FROM FRANCE. , HOW THE AUSSIES JOKE IN THE FACE OF DEATH. There are a good many 'Tassies' here, which causes much friendly banter be tween them and the lads from the other States, particularly those from , 'Our 'Arbor.' I enclose a few samples: — ? 1. Tasmania has been let down about a thousand feet below sea level to kill the codlin moth. 2. Tasmania has declared a separate peace, and all 'Tassies' must return home at once. 3. Tassyland has been torpedoed. 4. To my girl in Blighty: 'I am not a rich man. My estate is only a small one— about the size of Tasmania.' B. To South Australians: To grow pota toes on land which never has more than a heavy dewfall on it. Plant the spuds about a foot apart and between each row plant a row of onions, which will cause the spuds' eyes to water. 6. Three boats have been chartered to take the Aussies home, with a raft towed behind for the New Zealanders. 7. The latest furfy— (N.B.— 'Furfy' is A.I.F. for 'rumor') : The Dardanell...

THE CHILDREN OF THE POOR. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 28 December 1918

^THE€IfllflREN0FTHE *00R. In another column appears a letter from £r. Arthur, M.L.A. for Middle. Harbor, advocating an endowment of mothers for ' the support of their children. We do not doubt the excellence of the worthy doctor's intentions, and it is quite possible such a scheme would afford some measure of relief in a few cases, but it has some serious disadvantages, which Dr. Arthur fails to observe. He says, 'I want to do something for the children NOW, and cannot wait for the coming of any Co-operative or Socialistic Commonwealth.' No one wishes the Dr. , to wait for anything; let him on the con trary put all his energy and human sym pathy into bringing about the Co-operative ' Commonwealth, and he will be getting at 'the root of the evil which he deplores, in stead of frittering away his time and talent in dealing with mere outward symptoms of the disease. Here are a few of the disadvantages of the Doctor's endowment scheme: — 1.. It would mean more taxation, and it Is an axi...

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE—AIN'T IT ? [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 28 December 1918

WHAT WOULD YOU LIRE— AIN'T IT? Since the Germans threw In the towel the Allies have crossed the Rhine, and per medium of the cable this what they think of Fritz: — (1) If he welcomes the conquerors with a, cheery smile he is an unrepentant hog who was selfish enough to knock off fighting before the enemy had killed enough of him. (2) If he is calm and civil, but not over pleased at handing over his cities and other trifles to his antagonists, then he is a sullen and defiant foe with deep treach-: ery behind his passive demeanor. Even now be is preparing to spring at his hated foe in another 70 or 80 years at the latest (3) If he and his cobbers are loudly, arguing about their future Igrm of Go-*; vernment, and discussing in High German; or Low Dutch how many thousand years it will take to pay off their indemnity, then the country is t'split into fragments,' 'chaos' is on deck, and everything is any-* how, when not otherwise.

GERMANY'S SURRENDERED FLEET. WILSON ADVOCATES DESTRUCTION, AND GIVES HIS REASONS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 28 December 1918

GERMANY'S SURRENDERED FLEET. .' - ? . . ' t WILSON ADVOCATES DESTRUCTION* AND GIVES HIS REASONS. v- President Wilson's reasons for advocate ing the complete destruction of the sum rendered German fleet present a subject for much British reflection. In effect, his first argument is that sucK destruction would fae a great moral act,: His second argument is ona that bai more direct' material appeal -to his coun* frvmfin ? ' To divide the German vessels among the Allies would, he -says, give England; the lion's share, and thus compel U.S.A, to build sixteen more war vessels, in ad-s dition to its present naval programme,: in order to give it armaments equalling those of Great Britain. ' Pretty clearly, when Britain set before herself the task of annihilating German naval rivalry she failed to take stock of other possibilities. How, short of dis-: armament, is she going to meet the 'naval policy of U.S. A.'?

AN INTERNATIONAL PINKERTON ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 28 December 1918

AN INTERNATIONAL PINKERTtififv ASSOCIATION. The Pinkerton Association of' America is a very singular institution. It is in reality a trained standing army, equipped' with the deadliest weapons in the shape of machine guns and magazine v rifles, which is owned, controlled, and main tained 'by private corporations. It was first organised by a Major Pinkerton, hence the present name. This association attracted widespread public attention by the part it played in the great Home stead strike at Carnegie's steel works about 30 years ago. Carnegie had sent agents throughout Europe in .quest of cheap labor, and thousands of alien immi grants were being landed in America for the purpose of displacing American ar tisans in Carnegie's employ. The Pinker ton army undertook the task of convoy ing and safeguarding these extremely un desirable immigrants from an American Trade Union standpoint. A very serious clash occurred, ending in a pitched battle between the American employees at Car negie's ...

SENATOR LONG'S RESIGNATION. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 28 December 1918

SENATOR LONG'S RESIGNATION. Senator Long, of Tasmania, has re- ; signed his seat on account of the reflec- i tions cast upon his conduct in connection : with the Shaw wireless purchase. Repre- ? sentctive Jensen, from the same State, j who, as Minister for the Navjv was re- ! sponsible for the purchase, refused to re- \ sign his portfolio, and was eventually ! sacked from the Ministry, but has not re signed his seat as a member. In reviewing the action of Senalor^Long, one is forced to believe, that his resigna- i tion was not entirely voluntary. Under ? our Constitution there are no by-elections for the Senate, but any vacancies occur- j ring arc filled by a joint sitting of both i Houses of the Parliament of the State j concerned. If Parliament is in recess the State Governor makes an appointment with the advice of his Ministers. This being the case, and Senator Long being a member of the Labor Party, for him to resign while a hostile party rules j his State, is actually giving a ...

PARS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 28 December 1918

PARS. Some people propose to survey an aerial route between Australia and Eng land, and P.M.G. Webster was asked last Sunday whether the proposal would ad vance the prospects of an aerial postal service. 'All I can say at present,' answered Webster, 'is that I have my eye on the matter.' If the P.M.G. really de sires to push 'the mat£er' along he can do more than keep his optic glued on it. He can write a poem around it. It is such a big 'matter' that only Webster is capable of giving adequate metrical expression to its possibilities. ? ? ? ' John Jellicoe, of Jutland, also of the British Admiralts', is to come to Aus tralia next year to report on naval bases and prospective sea-fighting generally. Nobody has mentioned what John is to get for the job, but it would be safe to bet that it will be more than many an Australian worker earns in his whole life. Seeing that the Allies and U.S.A. fought for the permanent establishment of peace, and that Germany is, navally at any rate, down ...

Chesterton has 1 an article under the above heading on the ' proposal of the Lloyd George Government ? to hold a general election about the end. ' -of the present year. ? He savs: 'We have hitherto refrained from serious comment on all the contro versies about a general election. And it is with some reluctance that we take it as a text, even after a formal announcement has made it seem to many journalists the mosti important e'vent of the present time. .gome hold that it is important to avoid an election; some that it is important to achieve an election; but ia truth they are both wrong. ' The general. election is not an important event. If we had to decide on the. proposal we should decide In the 'negative; but it is a thing not so much to toe negatived as to be .neglected. 'Intrinsically it is rather less important than-a Lord -Mayor's Show; and its squibs ?ace quite as damp and dead...

A NEW SOCIAL ORDER. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 28 December 1918

A NEW SOCIAL ORDER. The following extracts from an article in the 'New Statesman' give come idea of how British workers exist at the pre sent time; truly, they should lose no op portunity of singing 'Britons never shall be slaves': — : 'We must never forget the sound aphorism of political science that popular revolts, however seemingly causeless, arise only from real hardships, which fre quently fail to find expression in the de mands of those who revolt. It is not a question of whether or not the revolters are justified. What the statesman is con cerned with is explanation and causation, and the most efficient social reaction. It is his business to discover where the shoe pinches, and to take the necessary steps to afford relief. It is perhaps not with out significance that the engine-drivers struck primarily and principally in South Wales. When, nine months ago, Mr. Lloyd George sought to discover the causes of 'Labor unrest' it was in South Wales that the Commissioners found the ...

THOUGHTS ON DEMOCRACY. POLITICAL REACTIONISTS. IV. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 28 December 1918

MHJGHTS OR DEMOCRACY. -... ...' POLITICAL REACTIONISTS. .. ., * . . '* IV. : .' 3fc most countries the predominance in ?Humber and' in power of lawyer-politicians lias long been recognised as a grave danger. There is a general understand ing (hat many of these men push their . way into political prominence in order to get lucrative offices or professional busi ness. The directly-personal aims and am bitions of these men, and the unblushing effrontery vtrtth which as a body they have Always opposed and obstructed measures1 likely to reduce the work and the emolu ments of their profession, have long been an accepted commonplace of politics. But this open use of politics by lawyers for selfish professional ends is of far less im portance than the indirect support they render to the defence of improperly {Capitalism).

A DIRGE. We are the women and children Of the men that mined for gold; Heavy are we with sorrow. Heavy as heart can hold; Galled are we with injustice, Sick to the soul of loss — Husbands and sons and brothers. Slain for the yellow dross. They moiled like gnomes in the 'faces,' They choked in the 'fracteur'1 fumes, And your dividends paved the pathways That led to their earthly tombs. With Death in the sleepless 'night-shifts They diced for the prize ye drew; r And the Devil loaded the pieces — But the stakes were held by you. Yo have sown the wind, to your sorrow; They were the slaves of Need. Homes bad they for .the keeping. Children to clothe and feed! ,Ye paid them currency wages — Shall it stand to your souls for shrif: That ye bought them in open market For 'Seven-and-six a shift?' Ye alive sown the wind, to your sorrow; Ye have sown by the coward's code, Where the glimmering candles gutter, And the rock-drill bites on the lode. Ye have sown to the jangle of stampers, ? To the...
