THE COMING ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 31 October 1891

? ? The battle of New Unionism is not to get any fancy or 'Utopian Bystem immediately put-into-operationi — It is— for—the acknow- — lodgment of certain undeniable facts and the adoption of principles which will enable the OUUC bU W»H.t3 UUUVIU1 ui buj pniviuuuu industry whenever that is demanded in the interests of aruTbv a majority of the people. It is said that the New Unionism is Socia listic and aims at the overthrow of represen tative government. What is representative government but the outward form which gives -expression— to theHidea-:- * * That th« people nhnnlrf pmrara ?' What the new unionists quarrel with is not the idea, bulb the form and- expression which they say are inadequate to carry out the idea. Therefore they aim, not at the overthrow of representa tive^ovemment,— but-on-the-oontrary seek ? the only means whereby it can be made to give true expression to the principle on which it is supposed to exist, namely : the sovereignty of the people. With this object in ...

? LABQIM WlffiCS.~ WORKERS' POLITICAL ORGANISATION^ MEETINGS.* I South Brisbane : Wednesday, October 28th at   every alternate Wednesday at Old Mechanic — Institute, Stanley Street; 8pm     Parliament— doing nothing interesting to Labour.           The American capitalists of whom Revf , Buchanan is so proud can still give the     Patriotic Leaguers points, New York bankers have raised several million dollas! to break up the Americal Labour and Farmers' Alliance party by putting political   confidence men among them.

LAND SETTLEMENT MOVEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 31 October 1891

LAND SETTLEMENT MOVEMENTS. The Alice River settlement still holds its own, thanks to the fidelity and public spirit of its members, who have bravely thrown their outside earnings into the common fund. The Government has not yet proposed to Parliament to advance it the capital re-   quested, although the Government backed and voted for a cement bonus which would have swallowed up for ever nearly double the money asked as a loan only by the settlers. Millions for the millionaires and not a stiver for those who want to settle the land. Among other land settlement movements on foot is that conducted by the Co-operative Irrigation and Mercantile Society of Austra- lia, Limited (Head office: 49 Queen-street, Melbourne), a company which has the back- ing of W. G. Spence, president of the A.S.U., general secretary of the G.L.U.A., and till lately general secretary of the A.M.A. The July circular states that three southern irrigation colonies are on foot and that other similar d...

THE "CHEAP AND RELIABLE" AGAIN. Queensland Warned of New Moves Afoot To Swamp in Labour. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 31 October 1891

-fB^^^P-ftHIHlftlABtE^AGAttlr feueenslaad Warned of New Moves Afoot To Swamp In Labour. That the champions of 'freedom of con tract 'are determined by hook or by crook to get the Labour market entirely under their control, the attempt to palm Booth's scheme off on the colony showed conclusively. But Booth's scheme was only one string to -their bow. Private intelligence received by the being teken to re introduce Asiatic Labour on an extensive scale. It is not desirable at the present time to do more than give- the warning but this may be taken as absolutely authentic. If anybody is fool enough to ?doubt it, he will very soon be convinced of ? bis folly by hard facts. ? But not only is Asiatic Labour being ar ranged for. It would also seem that Ameri can Coloured Labour is being worked up for a descent upon Queensland, by emissaries of that Organised Capitalism whose unscrupu tousness was shown during the recent great strikes, particularly the last. - — At any rate, the .-Central— La...
