A BLACK RECORD. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 4 January 1919

A BLACK RECORD. Melbourne 'Argus' (11/12/18), in a leading article, commenting on the Shaw Wireless sensation, states: 'Up to the present time the Federal Parliament has been entirely free from any suggestions of corrupt administration or political mal practice.' Probably it suits the 'Argus' to class the Jensen-Long affair as the first blot on Australian Federal politics, but the people of Australia are not likely to forget the stinking record of the Hughes-Cook 'Win- the-War' Government since it assumed control of Federal affairs. Take, for in stance, the suspicious action of the Go vernment early last year — the attempt to prolong the life of Parliament by methods which, to say the least, were extremely shady. There was the effort to turn a Labor majority in the Senatcinto a minor ity, which fortunately miscarried. There was the sending away of Long on a secret commission; the lightning- illness and resignation of Heady; the equally light ning appointment of another Labor rene ga...

CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 4 January 1919

CORRESPONDENCE. Sir, — It is good to see and hear so much indignation ?over the result of the recent finding of the Board of Trade re living wage for women workers. It is not very long ago since the press and the class to which Judge Heydon belongs were telling the women workers that they (the women) were the saviours of the nation for taking up the occupations of the men who went to fight the Hun, and now that the war is practically over the people who ap plauded these so-called saviours of the Empire are willing that they should exist on starvation rates. Judge Heydon him self was one of those to applaud the women for taking over the men's work. But, Mr. Editor, indignation alone will do nothing. We workers can froth at the mouth with indignation, but what does Judge Heydon and his class care? We must get into action. The women -will have to make their unions stronger; they will have to refuse to scab on men work ers, and demand equal pay for the sexes, not equal pay for equal wor...

RUSSIAN SAINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 4 January 1919

RUSSIAN SAINTS. 'Many foreign writers have been struck by the peculiar ardor which animates the Russians of all classes in their devotion to their country,' wrote Stepniak. And he continues: — I 'Well, I do riot know whether this is due I to the emotional character of our people, I or whether it is merely a reflection of I what is intensely developed under another I name within our masses. Among the pea I santry, in whose eyes their 'Mir' is their I country, the devotion of each individual I to the 'Mir' has been made the keynote of I social morality. They have learned to I exercise self-restraint in petty everyday I concessions and services to the 'Mir,' and I have risen to the sublimity of heroism in I their acts of self-defence for its good.

BRITISH ELECTION FIGURES. UNIONISTS ON TOP. THE FLY IN LLOYD GEORGE'S OINTMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 4 January 1919

[?] UNIONISTS ON TOP. THE FLY IN LLOYD GEORGE1® OINTMENT. Already there is apparent a big fly in tlie ointment of Lloyd George's election victory, and London papers are busy in pointing it out to those who have not de tected it for themselves. Figures for the Government side show Iftat there were returned: Coalition Unionists, 334 ; Coalition-Liberals, 127; Coalition-Laborites, 10; a total of 471, ?nominally to follow the leadership of Lloyd Geroge. Against this majority all other sections combined sent in only 236 members. What must strike everybody in con I sidering the compostiion of the victorious party is the fact that, bar 137, it con sists of Unionists, or, in other words, of the Conservative Party of Great Britain. Lloyd Geroge himself, who was once a Liberal of the Liberals, is among the 127 Coalition-Liberals, and, therefore, can count on only a declared and im mediate following of only 126, or of 136, If the so-called laborites nominally under his Manner may be regarded a...

THAT "LIVING WAGE." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 4 January 1919

THAT 'LIVING WAGE.' The Board of Trade has decided that 30/- per week is a living wage for our sisters in industry. Oh, sister mine, hast heard the joyful news, The glad decree that's floating through the air? In spite of all the base divergent views, The Board of Trade's allotted you your share Of earthly wealth; the pallor of your cheek Will vanish now you've thirty bob a week. What untold wealth, the mind can scarce conceive Its magnitude. Possessing so much gold The vanished joys you will at length re trieve, And jeer at want when you are growing old, Can store a little for a rainy day, ? And live .content on such a princely pay. The silks and satins dear to all your sex Shall all be yours, the opera and the play You shall enjoy, and nought shall ever vex The sweet tranquility of life's happy day.

THOUGHTS ON DEMOCRACY. REACTIONISTS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 4 January 1919

THOUGHTS ON DEMOCRACY. , REACTIONISTS. ' But these formal processes of thought are by no means the only or the most powerful Intellectual' and ctiiutionai sup ports of ' reaction. ? In our brief survey we saw from what various sources -the strength of militarism, was derived. We eaw now the spirit of btiihuritv and enforced discipline, the regimentation of the mind, and the con duct, implicit in our churches, our public schools, and our bureaucracy, recognised a kindred spirit in the ritual, the hier archy, the uniform, the route march, the submission of private will to higher orders, the austere etrenuousness of the eoldierly life, as presented to their sym pathetic imagination. Nowhere do mili 'tarism and war find a more wholehearted Support than among Christian ministers. This is chiefly due to two characteristics of the spiritual official. First, a high sense of order and uniformity; and, second, his intellectual, economic, and social conditions conspire to make him hostile to l...

A LABOR WOMAN'S POEMS. MRS. GILMORE'S LATEST BOOK. Of the Labor writers of Australia fe^» if any, are better known than Mrs. Marx Gilmore, and the publication of anothe^ volume of her verse, 'The Passionate Heart,' will be welcomed by those wh^ have been brought into touch with hefl through the columns of the Australian' 'Worker.' Mrs. Gilniore's connection;. with the Labor press goes back many years, and to a time when it frequently, cost something to be associated with thei Movement. She was the first woman, contributor to the 'Hummer,' as the fore-3 runner of the 'Worker' was called when first issued by the A.W.U., as its official sheet in Wagga, Throwing herselt whole-heartedly into the new Australian movement, she wrote largely for the' 'New Australian Journal' in Sydney, and, for the monthly 'Cosme' . when it was published in Paraguay.

HURRY UP! H.E.B., in "The Worker":- [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 4 January 1919

HURRY UP! H.E.B., in 'The Worker' :- Are the people of this great continent aware that they are governed by an Oligarchy? Do they know that Democracy Ls near its last gasp, and that Represen tative Government came to a suicidal end some little time ago? Australia's case is such that it really ought to appear as a suppliant at the Peace Conference, begging to be granted a. charter of freedom, and deliverance from the gang of gimcrack despots that is ruling and robbing the country without any just warrant, human or divine. When the Federal Parliament agreed to Willy Watt's demand, and passed the bill extending the duration of the War Pre cautions Act for six months, or until the signing of peace, whichever be the longer period, it DELIBERATELY BETRAYED THE PEOPLE'S TRUST, and reduced Australia to the political level of a Turk ish province, _ A handful of little-brained and long fingered politicians is now supreme throughout the Commonwealth. It is re sponsible to no one. It is subject...

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

1919. : The New Year has commenced ?with all the world on the tiptoe of expectation. V All thinking men and women are s wondering what the ending of the p great ivovjd war will mean for the |- future of humanity. Never before, i j it may be said with assurance, has it 'i:' been so widely and clearly recog nised that great human forces are behind every movement, which is seemingly the work of some leader or group of leaders, but in reality is due to causes, which had their origin generations or even ages before these leaders were born. Looked at from that point of view, the individual unit is of no more im portance in the scheme of things than is the 'twig floating down the cur rent of a mighty and impetuous river. In his vanity and egotism man oft times looks upon himself as having been specially destined by an over ruling Providence to create and guide a cause or a movement on be half of his fellow-mortals, when in reality it is the Movement which has pushed him to the surface and ...

ROYALTY AND DEMOCRACY Sydney "Daily Telegraph" devoted [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 4 January 1919

ROYALTY AND DEMOCRACY Sydney 'Daily Telegraph' devoted nearly a column leader on New Tear's Day to show how the intended marriage (with the King's consent) of the Princess Patricia of Connaught, a grand-daughter of the late Queen Victoria, to a 'Com- moner,' named Ramsay, was clear proof that the war had made the world 'safe for democracy.' It went on to disclose the awful fact that one result of this tremendous con descension on the part of Miss Princess Pat would be that at Court functions her dubby would have to tail in behind men like Andy Fisher, Joe Cook, and Billy Hughes because they had the magic tag 'P.C.' after their names and Ramsay hadn't. Australia will no doubt sympathise with my man who has to attend any function with Billy and Joe, whether he goes in Eirst or comes in at the heel of the hunt. But, anyhow, what is the 'Telegraph' giving us all this guff for? Princess Pa tricia is mighty lucky to get a husband it all during the present scarcity of eligi ble men. She is...
