OUR SISTERS' COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 30 July 1892
OUR SISTERS' COLUMN. — ^ Dear Hummer, — You have a big heart for the-men. Please spare a little for the. weaker portion of humanity. I don't know, whether being a 'hummer,' you have a sting; anyhow, if you have, choose your patients carefully— bee stings are painful, you know. Men speak about 'only a woman,' but I'm right down glad to be one, and, what is more, am going to try hard to show them that women can be vevv useful to thfivn. and win their respect also. Girls and women have not had much chance up to now. Their education has been neglected — being only women has not been good for them. Men have recognized this fact at last, and are willing to own them as sisters and co workers. To this end then we will. aim. The Australian Workers Union is to be an accomplished fact. Just picture the good that must result when all Avorkers embracing skilled and unskilled labor of both sexes are united. Strikes against sweating in narrow, dirty lanes, in ill- ventilated rooms, and lots of oth...
THE BROKEN HILL STRIKE [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 30 July 1892
THE BROKEN HILL STRIKE Secretary Sleath purchased a share in the Proprietary mine, so he will have a say in future shareholders meetings. The Ballarat miners donate £500, Moonta miners £200, and the Bendigo men have agreed to levy themselves Is per week while the strike lasts. Donations are rolling in from all parts, and the employers newspapers give strong evidence of the fact that the assistance being rendered the Barrier men by other Unions is greater than the mine -owners bargained for. The miners still demand an unconditional conference. The owners promise to con sider a conference if the Union pickets are withdrawn from the mines. All the efforts made by the townspeople to promote a settle ment of the difficulty have proved unavailing. The miners show that the Proprietary Company is losing £100,000 monthly. They also point out that not more than 400 men could be engaged under the contract system at ore stoping, and if piece work reduced the earnings 2s per day the total saving...

Why Women Should Vote. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 30 July 1892
Why Women Should Vote. [By R. S.] Sisters, it never hurts an innocent-hearted woman to know of evil — ignorance is not innocence. It will never hurt our garments to go to the poll and vote for a good man. We shall never lose our refinement because we try to do something for our country. The vilest back slum does not stain the soul of a woman who goes there to nurse the sick. Idleness, scandal, dishonesty 'are, the things that blacken souls. The Government teaches that a boy ot 21 can help to make the laws of the country, but his mother can have no hand in them ! His mother ! — whom every boy, as a rule, feels is superior to himself ! And why is this ? Just because a boy is of a different sex — that is the reason. Is it not a reason to be ashamed of ? We were not made to be man's property — we were made to be his helpmeet in all things, and to lead him to be the best he can. We women have a lot of power over- men, and it is generally our fault if things are bad. So let us believe all...

AMERICAN POLITICO-INDUSTRIAL PROSPECTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 30 July 1892
AMERICAN POLITICOINDUS TRIAL PROSPECTS. Mr A. Cridge, of the San Francisco Star, sends' us the following by last mail : — Cleveland has just been nominated for President on the first ballot by the Demo cratic Convention at Chicago by 614! to 218£ for all opponents. It, therefore, seems opportune to consider the Presidential nomi nations so far made in connection with politico-industrial prospects. The outlook for the interests of labor is anything but promising. President Har rison, who was recently re- nominated by the Republican Convention, has done next to nothing, as President, to forward or oppose anything in the line of labor legislation. As U.S. Senator, he opposed Chinese ex clusion. As President, he never did any thing to help exclude them, and was in different in insisting upon the exaction of laws enacted to that end. On financial questions, he was thoroughly with the monopolists. On two points he is entitled to - some credit. There has been for some years a scheme to tur...

BRIEF REPLIES ''Nomad' (Queensland Border) : Re ceived ; will use later on . . . . ' Ivanhoe' : Will publish your article next week .... J; W. F. : Yes ; the New Australia scheme is practically a big earnest try for a better social state than it is possible to inaugurate here. Owing to ignorance and apathy con ditions get worse faster than the reforming agency, under present methods, can operate. Those who do understand the problem, or think they do, propose to set an example in absolute mateship. If the world doesn't profit by the example, so much the worse for the world— that's all . ...'

ELECTION EXPENSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 30 July 1892
ELECTION EXPENSES. The Government of Maoriland, in its new Electoral Bill, has made a step in the direc tion of paying the election expenses of can didate^ by providing that every school-room or other building maintained by public, money shall be at the free disposal of every candidate in the order of application ; no candidate to have the use of any building twice until each applicant has had it once. We might do worse than insert this clause in thenext New South Wales Electoral Bill, the hire of halls being a big item in a poor man's expenses ; and why not improve on the idea by granting every hona-fule candidate a free railway pass while touring the elec torate ? This would be only just by placing the new candidates on a footing Avith old members, who retain their free passes for a month after the dissolution of Parliament.
HERE AND THERE IN THE BACK COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 30 July 1892
HERE AND THERE IN THE BACK COUNTRY. TBy 'Paroo.' Morton Plains made a start shearing last week. All Union men on the board. They have ordered half-a-dozen copies Hummer and same number of Workers weekly. Both papers will have a large circulation in this Branch when shearing is in full swing. Caiwarro representative, E. H. Clement, sent in last mail for 52 copies of the Working man's Paradise, and Currawinya rep., J. Mearing, ordered 15 copies. .John Miller's work has caught on, as predicted in these notes some time ae-o. i At Curragh Station there was some slight trouble last week, occasioned by the shed hands asking for 30s per week. After stand ing out for two or three days their demands were conceded, and shearing is again in full swing. The magnificent contribution of ,£40 0s 6d sent in by tne shearers and shed hands at Boorara Station, in aid of the Broken Hill miners, is the chief topic amongst the mem bers in town ., If the other sheds respond in anything like the same degree...
TWO TYPICAL STATION HANDS. A SKETCH BY 1.—THE MANAGING ROUSEABOUT. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 30 July 1892
TWO TYPICAL STATION HANDS. ? ▲ ? A Sketch by /J\ 1.— THE MANAGING ROUSEABOUT. What shall we say of a man who, after he has been about a year on a station, fancies that he is owner of the top wire of each fence and the corner posts of the stockyard ? What shall we say of him? Why, d — -n him ! This ishis description : Toolazyto wash his clothes, he buys new ones. Too ugly to take among the girls, he thinks dress will make up the deficiencv. But these are not his worst faults. Dressed in the brief au thority of a wood-carter, he bosses his helpers, and if they buck he gets them sacked. The colonial phrase is that he 'jackets people.' He can't discharge a man, but he can say he'd rather have , another man than Tom because he's no use at some particular game. He pokes his nose into everything. Like a child, he covets everything he sees. In the neighboring township it is ' We, Us and Co.' concerning the station. Away from the town he is perhaps owner, perhaps as I have classed him — mana...
SMOKE HO!! [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 30 July 1892
SMOKE HO n At Monaro road camps Gr.L.U. members are being actively enrolled. A Tillage Settlement Bill is half way through the Victorian Assembly, and despite the howls of a few reactionaries it will be come law. The intercolonial ±jaDor jfaper uon ference held in Sydney last week passed a vote of sympathy with the Broken Hill strikers, \ and pledged support. Anti - Monopoly resolutions were carried, and arbitration urged, in regard to the Barrier Strike at the. largest meeting ever held in Adelaide Town Hall, on Friday, 22nd inst. 'The weekly rehash of the daily hash of the Argus' is whatE. P. Nesbit called the Australasian at the big Adelaide meeting on last Friday night. Carnegie informs the Pittsburg (U.S.) strikers that he will re -employ them if they give up their Union. In reply, the American Unions organize a boycott, and the supply of coke to the mines has been cut off . The boy cott is proving successful. The cable says some anarchist shot Carnegie's manager, and the strik...

ANTS IN THE BILLY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 30 July 1892
ANTS IN THE BILLY 'Republican' Dibbs, of 'taxation through the stomnch and back' renown, has ? been created a K.O.M.G. Wonder if he took the bauble for the purpose of securing liis chances for the Murrumbidgee ? He managed to squepze in n bad third at List election, 500 behind Labor member E,ae, and a bout' 1,000 in the rear 'of ' Jimmy' Gormly. This result without the title. It will be interesting to- note how the K.C.M.G. -ship alters the figures. ' Gentlemen, I am a Republican !' says G. R. D. 'But you really must accept it,' wrote Her Gracious. ' And saying he would ne'er consent' ?
