THE SONG THAT SHALL LIVE. DICK MACDONALD. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 28 December 1918

THE SONG THAT SHALL LIVE. The song that shall live through the future, That the Bast and the West shall heed, Shall be born of the souls of the nations, And writ that a child may read. It shall breathe not a word of hatred, Shall laud not quarrels of kings; Shall deprecate war and its wastefulness, And tell of the grander things. Not a dirge it shall be for the vanquished, Nor yet epic for the conqueror; They are still the bane of all nations Who sing of the glories of war, Who chant their songs and hymns of hate Where battle-hosts deploy, As of old they did by beleaguered Prague And the battered walls of Troy. Aye, it shall tell the world of a faith divine, Of a better and a broader creed; And shall first be sung on red -lit fields Where nations burn and bleed. It shall tell lof Love and Truth and Trust, And the loyalty that leads to home, As the epics have told of- the loyalty Of him who guarded Rome. Oh! the song that to-day the nations sing, Is writ on a crimson scroll, And was ...

AN APPEAL FROM LABOR IN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 28 December 1918

AN APPEAL FROM LABOR : IN ENGLAND/ ^ J''ew of .us 'appreciate properly the great set back that Australian Labor gave to', the International Labor Movement when it let W- M. Hughes go to England as a 'Labor' Prime' Minister. Still' fewer realise that he is still doing mischief as an Australian ' 'Labor' man! Scarcely any- appreciate the. .significance of . his appearance at the T.U.C.-in September; but he can only have gone there as a Laborite — bitter irony! Now, the writer lias received from a well-informed correspondent in England, who is closely in touch with all the Labor leaders, the following striking appeal: — It is essential that accredited A.L.P. representatives should be present as delegates to our Labor Party and to Inter-Allied Labor Conferences. This will ensure the final discredit of Hughes. He is rapidly declining in importance, but the presence of a real- delegate is required to give the coup de grace. In the presence of such accredited delegate no Labor body would a...

WHY DROP POLITICAL ACTION ? [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 28 December 1918

WHY DROP POLITICAL ACTHM Those' people who decry political action because of. its unsatisfactory results for get or ignore two solid facts. One is that industrial action has also been very largely unsatisfactory in the past, so that argument for abandoning the one would apply equally to both. The other fact is, that if the. Labor Movement was to unanimously abandon all political ac tion the other side would not do so, but on the contrary, would use its political power to curb, restrict, or crush indus trial action. As a matter of fact, indus trial action IS political action the moment it steps beyond .purely local and personal matters. Political action includes all things affecting the general interests of the community or any section of the com munity. Parliamentary . action is merely one method, but a. very powerful and im portant method of dealing with matters of collective interest. In Belgium a few years ago a general strike took place to secure political re forms, and partiall...

THE WILD FLOWERS OF FRANCE. STANLEY BRYANT, A.I.F. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 28 December 1918

THE WILD FLOWERS OF FRANCE. (By a Soldier in the Trenches.) The wild flowers are .blooming, And I send this bunch to you; So accept them as assurance Of love and friendship true. These flowers are gifts of Nature That I plucked on the advance In the eighteen Spring offensive On the war-worn plains of France. These flowers could tell a story If Nature made them speak About that Spring offensive And the Allied boys who sleep On every plain where battles Were fought in the great advance. The flowers are waving o'er their graves Oh the* war-worn plains of France. STANLEY BRYANT, ATF. Erance, October, 19.1&

PRIVATE BANKS AND TORY JOURNALISTS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 28 December 1918

PRIVATE BANKS AND TORY JOURNALISTS. Sydney 'Daily Telegraph' (23/12/ x8) has a sub-leader on the profits made by the Australian and New Zealand banks during- the current year. - The financial editor of the 'Telegraph' is a man -ffi great repute, but it doesn't require a man of genius to show that the article re ferred to is a weak attempt to apologise for the colossal tribute which these para sitic institutions levy upon the people. There are 20 commercial or trading banks doing business in Australasia, and their net profits for the year are £3,319,000, being an average return upon the capital invested of £14/12/- per cent. .. . The 'Daily Telegraph' writer refers to the fact that a good many people believe that these banks should be public pro perty and their profits g«t back to the people. This the writer thinks quite a one-sided view, because he says that their accumulated reserves and the premiums paid on some of their share capital means another 44 millions provided, and so re ...

FEDERAL STEAMER BUNDARRA. MAIDEN TRIP BREAKDOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 28 December 1918

FEDERAL STEAMER BUNDARRA. j MAIDEN TRIP BREAKDOWN. Per cable of Sunday last Australia wad informed that its American-built freights steamer Bundarra broke down on her ; maiden trip, and had to return to Victoria, B.C., for repairs. The Bundarra is one of Billy's bargains and if her qualities are such as are evi' denced by the early breakdown of Jiei - machinery, she must be dear at any prices Her predecessors of American construc tion have already cost a lump for repairs, and indications arc that all vessels of the line so far afloat are striking ex amples of marine jerry-building. j One of the main arguments advanced for the retention of the German Pacifl* possessions is that if returned to tucii pre-war owners they would, ,:as-^naval ;, bases, constitute a standing menace t-J Australia; The Japanese statesman^ Marquis Okuma, is reported to agree thai;g$ Britain should keep- German Papua aiiS^ the Bismarck Archipelago, and to claim.# that Japan should do likewise with' tiisg Marsha...

INFLUENZA AND ITS MORTALITY. GREATER THAN THAT OF THE WAR. PERHAPS THE PENALTY OF FOLLY, [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 28 December 1918

IWi^ALJtY, GREATER THAN THAT OF THE WAjffc PERHAPS THE PENALTY OF FOLLY, A cable from London reports that it has been estimated that within three months the epidemic of pneumonic influenza caused 6,000,090 deaths, and has therefore exacted a greater toll of human lifo than over four years' war. Tlie computa tion is probably within the facts, and moreover the ravages of the disease are : by no means terminated. But there is a bigger possibility to /be ' considered. Is it not probable that the present plague is one of the indirect effects of the war? The medical world is by no means agreed regarding the special ? micro-organism that is the prime cause of most of the deaths. Professor D. A. Welch, of Sydney, de scribes it as appearing' to be 'a new variant (in other words, a new strain) that has made its appearance within a well-'* known bacterial group — the strepto pneumo-coccus group,' which is literally Greek to the non-medical reader. During the war, men* were killed -and': bodies...

THE WAR LOANS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 28 December 1918

l^W£^M:VB^=r: To begin with, the method of raising the . loans is entirely wrong, - and it would almost appear that, powerful influences^ had been brought to bear by the huge fi nancial concerns to use the method adopted in order that the people would be for generations tied down economically. Had a reasonable amount of considera tion been given to the matter in the in terests of the nation as a whole there, is no doubt that the existing svntem would never have been adopted. Anyone who has given the slightest thought to. the subject of . finance piust admit that money 'has been largely super seded by a system of credits drawn against actual assets; such as your, residence', shop, factory, or indeed any other asset. Therefore to issue bonds against the asset for the purpose of conducting a war was clearly the duty of the federal Go vernment. The simplicity of such proce dure and the ignoring of it by those in authorityis to be wondered at as Sorae thing. approaching- the marvellous. ...

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

PARS. Now that Judge Heydon has fixed a   minimum wage for adult women, what's the matter with the women meeting to fix a maximum wage for Noah's Ark judges? —Spartakus.         Judge Street and Judge Heydon have   both recently been kind enough to remind me that the fact that they wear horse hair on the outside of their heads is not conclusive evidence that they have any horse-sense inside of them.—Spartakus.         Judge Barton, of the Commonwealth High Court, lectured at the Sydney Uni- versity Club recently on "Justice, Not Ven- geance." The beginning and middle and end of his talk was that Germany must be made to pay for the material and moral devastation wrought by the war. If it could be postulated that everything alleged against Germany by her late antagonists is completely true, the Judge's conclusions might be regarded as sound enough. But, as ...

PROMISED BLESSINGS. ' ' When you are promised any good thing In the not quite definite future it Is well Xo put it down In black and white, bo that .when the time comet to olaim redemption there can be no dispute about the terms. , Well, the world was promised many good things on* condition that we 'won ' the war,' and a* these promises were re seated again atod again for four long, aweary years by tnen then In power, and still in power, they can be, and should ce, honored.

SUNDAY EVENING LECTURES. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 4 January 1919

SUNDAY EVENING LECTURES. The weekly lecture of the Labor Party, held in the Trades Hall, Sunday, Decem ber 22, was addressed by the Rev. F. T. Walker, organising secretary of the Men's Own Movement. The subject of the ad dress was 'The Class Struggle and the Prince of Peace.' Mrs. Jarvis rendered musical selections.. Mr. Walker, in opening his address, pro claimed his deep interest in tho Trade Union Movement. For the last 12 years he had taken a profound interest in the history and the workings of organised Labor, both in the industrial and the po litical field. To his mind the class strug gle is a universal fact. The~ class struggle is a project of the Labor Movement. The Labor Movement is like a tide coming in. With the coming of the tide some dirt may come with it, but nevertheless with the rising tide comes the great fresh water. Occasionally the leader or leaders may shunt the Labor Movement off the true track, but ? the moral of its funda mental principles will bring it bade ...

LABOR SELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 4 January 1919

. LABOR. SELECTIONS. Sir,-rAU Laborites, -save the oppor tunists, the impressionists, and probable renegades will, I. feel sure, concur with the suggestion advanced by /'Spartakus' that pre-election selections*' should be abolished. .All too. long have we tolerated the selection ballot, which is not calculated to provide us with the candidate of the highest merit, and has frequently caused bitter estrangements between supporters of Labor whose unified and vigorous efforts are requisite to success. The sooner we realise that merit should be the foremost qualification for all posi tions In the Labor Movement the better it will foe for all hands. No man who is prepared. to trust those whose trust he; himself invokes will object to being P^tgH^^ -the Jjroadest franchlse^he votes of the people in the electorate he is solicitous to represent. In the writer's opinion it would not be inimical but rather would it be beneficial for Labor if 20 candidates contested each electorate. So long as ...

BRITISH GENERAL ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 4 January 1919

BRITISH tfflERAL ELECltti, The progress results of the British' elec tions show a huge triumph for ' the Coalition forces jn Great Britain and a. similar triumph for the Sinn' Feiners in Ireland. The .old Liberal Party, along with Up leader, the late Prime Minister Asqui'h, lias been wiped out of existence. All the leading Laborites, Pacifists, and Radicals have been defeated, inchiO.ing such well-known men as Philip Snowden, Ramsay Macdonald, George Lansbury, Jowett, Chiozza Money, and many others?. On the other hand, all the political hum bugs, renegades, side-steppers, jingoes ami Kaiser-killers have been returned to Par liament. Among this mixed crowd we notice the names of Pemberton Billing and Ben Tillett, Horatio Bottomley and Havelock Wilson, Lord Cecil, Winston Churchill, Austen Chamberlain, and Car son, with of course many others equally well known. Like our own 'Win-the-War' National ist election of 1917, this has been a purely emotional election, in which sober reason in...

THE ONE BIG UNION. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 4 January 1919

THE ONE BIG UNION. Sir,— Organisation is the keynote of success. Industrial economics is an evolv ing science that needs collective enthusi asm, but without co-operation — organisa- tion — ideals can never be attained, and distant peaks must beckon in vain. This State to-day fails utterly to per form its duty to us — the industrial workers. The One Big Union is inevitable to con strain the force that is opposed to our freedom — our justice — in 'the use of wealth for the good of all people.' To-day we workers stand hypnotised and rust to death in poverty by those sick with the power of wealth. I say deliberately that individually we are weak, collectively we are dead, with our animation frozen stiff by the subtle machinery of a class system; with ex tortionate taxation 'kissed to sleep' by useless commissions; with a Board of Trade that absurdly determines a mini mum wage to create wealth without maxi mum. I say the One Big Union is a scientific necessity based on organised knowledg...
