MAY WOMEN VOTE/AND IF NOT, WHO MAY? The drunkard may vote. Though he may live on his/,, wife's earnings, neglect his children, and disgrace humanity, he is a man.

LUCINDA SHARPE ON THE FAMILY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 2 July 1892

LUCINDA SHARPE ON THE FAMILY. ? ♦- ? - (Worker.) There was a .time in my life- — which liasn't been a particularly long one either— when I got somehow to look upon a family .as a kind of unnecessary luxury. . I'm a little bit, ashamed to say it; but still it's a fact, and it's no use hiding facts— is it? It wasn't my own real self, I think, for like most of the rest of us I always loved little children with my whole heart, and never was so happy as when I got to have ?one of my very own. But all- around, me I used to hear people say how much happier you were without a family than with one, and how much better a little family was than a large one, and then they'd all figure L ik up and' compare things, and all, that, you know, until I actually believed myself that ii family was a nuisance, and that you could be ever so much happier if you hadn't one, -or at most a lone chick or two. I've out .grown that now, though, and I'm all the better for having outgrown it, believe me. What made...

HENRY GEORGE ON COMPETITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 2 July 1892

HENRY GEORGE ON COMPETI TION. . ? ♦ ? Dear Hummer, — ^ Larry Petrie protests against the charge of having stated that the community makes all goods, and now confines his assertion to this — that the community makes the ' sur plus value.' But his illustrations are still directed to show that the former assertion is correct. If Stevenson would not have in vented a locomotive unless the community wanted it, it is equally clear that no en gineer would make locomotives, unless some body else wanted them. If, then, the in vention belongs to the community and not to Stevenson, then the locomotives belong to those who want them, and notv to the man who made them. And what, pray, is surplus value ? Is it the difference between the wages of the men who . make goods and the value of the goods themselves ? If so, it is clearly stolen from the men who made the goods, and belongs to them andv not the community. If they make the goods, either the whole value of them is their pro perty or nothing. ...

OUR SISTERS' COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 2 July 1892

OUR SISTERS' COLUMN. [By R. S.l People say women must not have a vote for fear of bringing quarrels into the home ! Well, if anything has ever caused quarrels in the world it has been differences of re ligion. And if husbands and wives can agree to differ on religion-, can they not agree to differ (if they do differ) on politics without squabbling ? If you like beef, and your wife likes mutton, need you quarrel about it? Every free subject has a right -to his or her opinion on any subject. * * # Of course, women will make mistakes and vote wrongly sometimes. But we all learn by our mistakes. An honest mistake is better than apathy and indifference, and this is the attitude of many women now towards the affairs of the country. How can a country be patriotic - unless the women are so? Let them sympathise with their husbands, in - spire their lovers, teach their children — Patriotism. , * * * What does it matter if a woman here and. there has no time to vote ? At any rate, she will be ...

A RENEGADE [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 2 July 1892

A RENEGADE Dear Hummer, I have always been on the side of shearers and workers generally, erroneously thinking they were very hard done by, but on inquiry I find that their hardships have been very much over-stated, and I begin to see that I was mistaken, and am coming round to Mi . Abbott's views.. Erom inquiries winch I have made of the daily routine of station and farm life I believe that there is nothing ob jectionable in it whatever, and as the good old. adage runs, ' 'early to bed an early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise,' no reasonable man ought to object to the ^fol- lowing standing orders (especially with a £1 per week and rations thrown in) : Rise at 3 a.m. and get the horses in to feed them ; then at daylight start ploughing ; finish at dusk; then have refreshment, and cut chaff for horses two hours ; let them go at 10 for the night. Then, I believe, the man has the , rest of the day to himself for mental im provement, etc. What more The best book for women ...

"ON THE WALLABY" IN TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 2 July 1892

' - '' 'ON THE WALLABY' IN TASMANIA. — ? ? ♦ ? , [By Arthur Eae.] I reached the city of Launceston after a twenty-three hours run from Melbourne. The trip was uneventful. The scenery is too familiar to most of you to need descrip tion, and as time is brief and spaco limited I will content myself with giving my first impressions of Tasmania from a political and social standpoint. Here let me say that while disgusted with the ' ignorance and ' ? self-conceit displayed by' the average .British globetrotter, who assumes the right and 1 ability to dictate to the people of every colony in which he may spend a few hours just how the people ought to govern them selves and spend their own money, it is a different thing altogether to publish one's .first impressions of things seen and heard. I make no pretence of being a heaven-sent' genius, who can untie every knotty question which may be puzzling the, natives, neither .have I the combined wisdom of Solomon and Moses, nor the ability to run ...

NOTICE TO ADVERTISERS Anyone who wants to do honest business can advertise in the ' 'Hummer.' We have no room for the greedy speculator or mono polist, the quack or the schemer. No paper can run straight for the people and hit every fraud and lie that exists which has to depend upon the favor of its adver tisers ; and the ' ' Hummer' ' means to be in the fore -front of the Labor Movement while it intends to run honest till it runs down. For these reasons we cringe to no one for advertisements ; but all the same we ask Unionists to support their own paper by patronising those who advertise in it. The ' Hummer' is the only truly coopera tive weekly newspaper in Australia (except ing the Queensland Worker) and all profits go towards its improvement. The 'Hummer' office is a recognised Union office . The only one in the Riverina. For terms apply to the MANAGER.

HERE AND THERE IN THE BACK COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 2 July 1892

HERE AND THERE IN THE BACK COUNTRY. [By 'Paroo.' From a reliable source I glean that the number oftFree Passes issued to Bourke, since the establishment of a Labor Bureau up to date, tots up over 1000. And still they come. As early as March last a petition containing over oOO signatures protesting against any more free passes being issued to this district, was sent down. Of this number some 200 - were unemployed. But protests were un availing. Later on we find that those en gaging through the P.U. office, Sydney, for the shearing out here, were supplied with free passes upon production of Whitely King's , engagement receipt. And, mark you, the majority of those who so engaged were not short of a few pounds, being able to pay heavy coach fares to thiie outlying sheds. Yet those men are being* franked over our railways whilst hundreds of men who depend solely upon the shearing season are wandering about in a state of semi starvation. # # . In this matter the nefarious designs of the P...
