LABOR AND EMPIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 12 October 1918

LABOR AND EMPIRE. I am a working man. I have been a working man—or, at     anyrate, a working human being—for more   than sixty years. During that time I have seen the Em- pire grow larger and larger. I remember when we added millions of square miles to the Imperial possessions in Africa. I remember when we took over Egypt. I remember when we took over the South   African Republics.   But I never remember any of these vast additions to the Empire making any dif- ference to me.     While the Empire has been growing greater and greater and richer and richer,, my condition has remained the same. I can't remember my boss ever coming to me and saying: "I say. Smith, we've added Egypt to our possessions; here's five bob a week extra."     I don't remember any boss saying to any worker: "We've taken over a couple of republics in South Africa, so your wages have been doubled"...

OUR BIG TREES. AN INTERESTING REVIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 12 October 1918

OUR BIG TREES. AN INTERESTING REVIEW.                   From time to time inquiries are made   regarding the height of Australian forest     trees (writes "Kola" in the "Age"). The claim has been made, and persistently,   that in Victoria we have the tallest trees in the whole of the world. This claim has been made time and again. It was first made officially by the late Baron   von Mueller, who was a great botanist,   but also a very credulous one. The baron     became passionately attached to his adop-       ted country — Australia; and he proclaimed   far and wide, that she had trees which   were immeasurably higher than those of   any other country. In Seeham's "Journal of Botany,' in ...

MISCHIEVOUS NONSENSE. Most old ma Tims are juat raw buncomUe. Consider that familiar piece of piffle: ''Be good and you will be *apny.' There are thousands and thousands of good' souls whose lives are crowded with misery. One ought to bergood, certainly; but being good is not an infallible sign that one will be happy -under a system that deals so largely In the opposite thing.

There are thousands and thousands of honest toilers who so to bed early from sheer fatigue after -a.

GOD AND THE UNIVERSE. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 26 October 1918

COD AND THE UNIVERSE. He sits on a gilded throne above And bends with eager gaze To watch the worlds Ho flings in spacg Spin on in mystic maze; To spin, and whirl, and interior. In endless courses whirled, ' And one , of . these tops— of a God that spins-^: ^ Is a ball that we call the world: And on it are- beings — countless ones— Made in the image of God; And they, too, go on in weary grinds Beneath the endless rod. Lo2 tears enough have flowed from each To water the earth he trods. And pains enough have women borne To mother a race of Gods; Yet millions hold their tiny babes With wearied, frightened eyes. For sounds are piercing in their ears . Of unfed babies' cries! And lifted hands have fallen Hmp— - No answer comes to prayer; And heads are bowed, and shoulders drooped. No pity anywhere. And rags are wrapped to shield from cold, And Love itself lies dead; And Youth has buried all its hopes And hearts are weights of lead;. And heavy feet drag on to work The toil-worn body's wei...

WHO DOES THE WORK? STIRRING SPEECH IN U.S. SENATE. In a speech in the United States Senate, Mr. McKellar, of Tennessee, surprised some members of that sedate body by at tacking the fiction that captains of indus try build ships and produce war muni tions. He said: 'We speakers, we Congressmen, we newspaper writers, we hired men in high places who spend the people's money as captains of industry exclaim at the top of our voices that we build these ships. What a travesty upon truth! 'Labor builds those ships. It is Labor that In sweat and grime and mud digs the raw materials from the bowels of the earth. It is Labor that burns, toils and sweats at the furnaces and at the forges to make' these raw. materials fit *or ser vice.

AN ORDERLY REVOLUTION. WHAT LABOR IS ACCOMPLISHING. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 26 October 1918

^yft^ji^y^*isa^-^-tf3re-t»^^^ WHAT LABOR IS ACCOMPLISHING. Revolution is. a word of evil omen. It calls . up a vision of. barricades in the streets and blood in the, gutters. No re Bponeible person, however determined he or she may beb to effect a complete transformation of society, can contemplate such a possibility without horror. It is impossible to say what the future holds, but many of ue believe that mankind is so. weary ot violence and bloodshed that if the coming social revolution necessarily involved armed insurrection it would find no general sanction. To the British people in particular the prospect of a period ot convulsive effort of this character is wholly without appeal. Revolution in this sense is alien to the British character. . Only in the last re sort and as a final desperate expedient have the people of this country consented to employ force to attain their ends'. There have been times, of course, when the active, opposition or dead inertia of the .ruling classe...

A NEW POETIC GENIUS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 26 October 1918

A NEW POETIC GENIUS. Some little time back Mr. William Webster, Postmaster-General, unex pectedly revealed more than a spark of poetic genius by writing a verse concern ing the virtues of .a pint of hot water in purifying the stomach, kidneys, bWdder, and gall. . ? ' -m Encouraged by the hit he made, Mr. Webster got to work In real earnest, and wrote & poem which seems destined to live as Jong as Australian literature— and per haps longer. The poem alluded to was inspired by the opening of the Postal Institute In Mel bourne.' Here is the first- stanza (some .people would call' it 'the first verse,' but when a Really Great Poet writes a verse it is 'a stanza'): . . : Tdfday! To-day!
