THE FATHER OF NEW ZEALAND LABOR LEGISLATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 28 July 1910

THE FATHER OF NEW ZEALAND LABOR LEGISLATION. Keir Hardie described Mr. Edward Tre gear as,' the sweetest and noblest soul in the Dominion.' The description is par ticularly applicable from, a worker's point of view, and will meet, with, the approval of every worker in this country. No man has done more for the worker in New Zealand than has Mr. Tregear, : both in his official and private capacity. ??-? His work for Labor has all along been quietly and earnestly performed, and without the slightest ostentation on Mr. Tregear's part. On that account much of the credit for our Labor legislation, due for the most part to him, has baen given t3 others. He is really the Father of most of the New Zealand Labor laws. ' In spirit' and 'in EDWARD TREGEAR. prvA-cipie, if not in effect, they are repre sentative of Mr. Tregear's aims and.ideas, arid reveal his untiring 'energy, and desire to better the conditions of the workers in their own time. Mr. Tregear assumed control of the De partment of...

BIG PROFITS AT MILDURA. WHAT THE FRUIT INDUSTRY RETURNS. A GROWER QUOTES SOME STRIKING FIGURES. SWEATED LABOR RATES STILL PREVAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 28 July 1910

BIG PROFITS AT MILDURA. WHAT THE FRUIT INDUSTRY RETURNS. A GROWER QUOTES SOME STRIKING FIGURES. SWEATED LABOR RATES STILL PREVAIL. When, at Mildura, members of the Mil dura Worker's Union put up a fight to secure very moderate -wages, they were met with the cry that the fruit-growing industry could not stand the rates that were demanded. Sweating prices had been paid previously, and the greatest opposi tion was shown by many to paying what the Union asked. Growers wanted the fullest protection for themselves in their line of business, but desired free-trade in Labor. The Worker has always main tained that tthe profits made at Mildura were high, and that decent wages could be paid to adults without child labor beiner brought into the field to still further swell the banking accounts of growers. On the question of the returns which some people get at Mildura, it is always interesting to get reliable information. On board the Orvieto, which left Australia for London recently was Mr. Le...

In Winter you naturally expect the usual epidemic of COUGHS, COLDS, BRONCHITIS, INFLUENZA, WHOOPING COUGH, and the many other troubles arising from damp and chill.

This carelessness or Avorse has existed in other cases, and full inquiry is called for. ? The pamphlet may be had from the office' of the 'Daily Post,' Hobart; Id., or posted 2d

THE BOOKS OF O. HENRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 28 July 1910

THE BOOKS OF O. HENRY. _ The following books were published for the lately- deceased American Sydney Porter ('O, Henry '), whose style of Avrit ing AA'as roughly summarised last week: — Cabbages and Kings, 1904. A romance of a South American republic. The book takes its title from ' The Walrus and the Carpenter' in LeAvis Carroll's ' Through the Looking-glass': ' The time has come,' the Walrus said, ' To talk of many things: Of shoes— and ships— and sealing-wax — Of cabbages— and-kings ...' Which suggests the disconnected Avay of the telling. ' There is little consecutive ness' along the Spanish Main,', says O. Henry. ' Things happen there intermit tently.' That is hoAV they happen in his book, Avhich he describes as 'this tropic vaudeville.' But there is enough plot to keep them together. Wire-pulling and boodling are regular things in- the repub lic of Anchuria. A sample , event appears in these comments on a change of presi dent.: 'It's a glorious thing,' said Cronin, half jestin...

SYDNEY'S WHITE SLAVES, SHOCKING TREATMENT OF WOMEN WORKERS. AN ORGANIZER'S STARTLING REVELATIONS. CHINESE EMPLOYERS. PAY BETTER THAN EUROPEAN, The Women's Organizing Committee of the Labor Council of New South Wales has for some weeks past been carrying on a vigorous campaign for the more effective organizing of the women' and girl workers of Sydney and suburbs. In the course of their work the ladies actively concerned 'have gained intimate know ledge of numerous cases of the grossest kind of sweating. In an interview with Mrs. Dwyer, Factory Employees' Dele gate and a member of the Women's Or ganizing Committee, a- representative of The Worker was given some instances that will serve to illustrate the 'conditions that obtain among that large class of women and girls which finds, employment in doing home needlework for the manu facturers of -women's clothing. 'Take blouse-makers, for example,' said Mrs. Dwyer, ' and consider their earn-, ings. .There' are/.iri general, two classes o...

CO-OPERATIVE WORKING CARRIERS. A MASTER CARRIERS' GRIEVANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 28 July 1910

CO-OPERATIVE WORKING CARRIERS. A MASTER CARRIERS' GRIEVANCE. A deputation from the Sydney Master Carriers' Association asked Premier Wade on Monday to restrict generally the work ing hours of the trade. The deputation stated that since the award of the wages board had fixed the working hours of em ployees a number of men previously em ployed by master carriers had formed co operative concerns, which carried goods at all hours. This was unfair competition with master carriers, who had, when car rying on business after 7.30 p.m., to pay overtime. The Premier, in reply, said there was no doubt that the hours of the award should apply to all engaged in the business. It would be rather drastic to limit the delivery of goods to a certain time; and he Avould rather try to bring all competitors under the same conditions. Those present received this announcement with, applause, but nobody asked the Pre mier whether he meant that the would try to extend the time for which employers can work t...

The Master Builders' Association of Sydney, at a meeting held on Tuesday last{ engaged in a discussion on an alleged present dearth of building arti sans in New South Wales. It was stated during this talk that fa number of me chanics were on their way out from Eng land, whereupon one member of the asso ciation expressed a hope that these would prove more competent than men who had already arrived^ The speaker neverthe less was of opinion that the association 'ought to do something- to get a proper supply of mechanics,' and went on .to say that stonemasons especially were very scarce. Another member advocated writing to all the trades journals in Eng land stating the wages paid in New South Wales, and ' pointing out the scarcity of mechanics in every branch of the build ing trade.'

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. WORK AT LAST. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 28 July 1910

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. WORK AT LAST. The debate on the Address-in-Reply, which has occupied a fortnight of Par liamentary time, less one day, was by means of two late sittings brought to a close on Wednesday night. Some of the Opposition were anxious to keep it going ^111 next week to enable one of their mem: bers. who was absent, to take a hand, but the Premier was determined to get it finished on Wednesday, and announced that the sitting would continue until the debate was closed. This brought a speedy close, and a number of~bills were immediately introduced and read- a first time to enable the second reading speeches to be got under way on Thurs day. The debate, as predicted, was abso lutely resultless, except in that a fort night of the most valuable part of the session was wasted. The Government now, however, have a clear course, and they propose to push forward the work with all possible speed.
