LABOUR FEDERATION. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 8 August 1891

:-tt8fflftnfE0ERA]iN, The employers' associations, the Patriotic League, the Tjapitalistic press, the Railway Commissioners, the squattocracy and pluto oracy and aristocracy generally — in fact Oapitalismin^whateTer-gaise or position we. way find it or its creatures — seem to attach the most extraordinary importance to break ing up the A.L.F. Certainly they are leaving nn atone unturned which may lead to such a consummation. Threats and bribes are being used by employers in dividually and collectively againit A.L.F. unionists, while the most persistent efforts are being made to sow dissension, excite recrimination and cause internal bickering in the_ A.L.F. ranks. In occasional in stances this plan of campaign has been successful, but that it can suoceed as a system must be recognised as an im possibility by all who know the spirit of the modern Labour movement. The Organisation of Labour is an absolute neces Httty under existing conditions and without^ the union of unions such orga...

MORE ABOUT CO-OPERATION. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 8 August 1891

MORE ABOUT CO-OPERATION. The Alice River co-operators are still struggling along under handicap caused by lack of funds. A recent letter says that after six weeks work "we have a real solid show—   vines, orange trees, guavas, a couple of mul- berry trees, pine-apples, &c, and in the kitchen garden 10 dozen rhubarb, over a couple of thousand cabbages, peas, schalots, beans, &c., &c. . . . I am convinced from the number of workers here who are thoroughly in earnest that if not a success the affair will die very hard and what worse will we be for having tried?" Permanent improvements include about 20 acres of clear- ing, splendid fences, large piggeries, and other structures. A petition from the Alice River c0-opera- tors has been conveyed to Sir S. W. Griffith in which they appeal to the Government for a loan of £50 per head to get the plant neces- sary to cure bacon, carry on other important industries and generally make good their hold on the so...
