DEPUTATION TO Mr. LANG [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Abo Call — 1 August 1938

DEPUTATION TO Mr. LANG The Aborigines Progressive Associa- tion was courteously received by the Leader of the Opposition in the N.S.W. Parliament (Mr. J. T. Lang) when the Executive Committee of the Association waited on him as a deputation, on 28th July. Letters had also been sent to the Prem- ier (Mr. Stevens) and to the Leader of the Country Party (Mr. Bruxner), ask- ing for an interview, but these gentlemen were not able to spare the time to see us. Mr. Lang carefully listened to our ap- peal, and asked many sympathetic ques- tions, concerning the plight of our people. He promised to watch our in- terests when the proposed new legislation   comes before Parliament. An immediate result of the deputa- tion has been the following two questions asked by Mr. Lang in the House, on the 3rd and 5th August : MR. LANG : Is the Colonial Secretary aware that because some of the Aborig- ines on the reserve at Peak Hill refused to accept meat they said was unfit for human consump...

Aborigines Progressive Association NEWS AND NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Abo Call — 1 August 1938

Aborigines Progressive Association NEWS AND NOTES. The Executive Committee has been carefully watching developments re- garding proposed new legislation in New South Wales. We are not skilful "lobby- ists", like the anthropologists and miss- ionaries who are pestering Members of Parliament, but we have done our best, through "The Abo Call" and otherwise to place the point of view of the Aborig- ines themselves before members of all parties. Splendid reports have been received from Singleton, Walgett, Collarenebri, Mungindi, and Moree, regarding the in- terest of Aborigines in "The Abo Call" and in the work of our Association. Our people are scattered all over the place, and we cannot easily reach them, hamp- ered as we are for funds to carry on our organising work ; but we have definite   proof that "The Abo Call" is travelling far and wide, bringing our message of hope and emancipation to the dark people. Aborigines at Tuncester (N.S.W.) complain that attempts have bee...

QUEENSLAND Royal Commission Needed [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Abo Call — 1 August 1938

QUEENSLAND Royal Commission Needed The Aborigines in Queensland are   joining their black brothers and sisters in N.S.W. and Victoria in protesting against the treatment under which they are forced to live by law. We, the rem- nants of our race, are appealing to the White Community of Australia, to force their Governments to alter their laws against us and to treat us as normal human beings. We are willing to forget the acts of injustice meted out to Abo- riginal men, women and children in the past. Our treatment by the Whites has been and still is a blot upon the fair name of Australia throughout the civilised world and prevents Australians earning good reputation abroad.     The Queensland Aborigines who are forced to the Cherbourg Aboriginal Miss- ion Station in Queensland are kept in a condition of semi-starvation, and so are mentally and physically depressed into a state which robs them of all ability and initiative. The whole atmosphere o...

What is our Fate? PARLIAMENT PROMISES NEW ACT THE COLOUR BAR AT COLLARENEBRI [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Abo Call — 1 August 1938

What is our Fate ? PARLIAMENT PROMISES NEW ACT Aborigines of New South Wales are anxiously awaiting the New Aborigines Act promised for the present session of Parliament. What will be our fate? Mr. Bruxner has promised "a New Deal". How will they shuffle the cards? We do not want anthropologists, clergymen, and police to "ex- terminate" us, as during 150 years past.   The following article describes actual conditions in a New South Wales township at the present time. THE COLOUR BAR AT COLLARENEBRI by a Traveller Collarenebri, on the banks of the Bar-   won River, is noted for what is called "The Blacks' Cemetery", a collection of graves adorned with broken glass and other ornaments. As a visitor to Collarenebri, I went to see this place. One mile out of town I stopped at the Blacks' Camp, which is a group of humpies made of flattened kero- sene tins and boughs. What I saw at the Blacks' Camp was so interesting that I did not go on im- mediately to see the C...

Northern Territory ADMINISTRATOR BELIEVES IN LASH FOR ABORIGINALS [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Abo Call — 1 August 1938

Northern Territory ADMINISTRATOR BELIEVES IN LASH FOR ABORIGINALS According to the Melbourne Herald of 8th June, 1938, Mr. R. H. Waddell, a former Administrator for the Northern Territory, believes in flogging as a deter- rent of crime. Commenting on a recent statement by Judge Wells at Darwin that flogging might be more suitable for nat- ives than imprisonment, Mr. Waddell said his 7 years as administrator had convinced him that flogging, if possible in front of the tribe, was the most im- pressive way of interpreting the white man's law to the Aborigines.

IS THIS SLAVERY? CHALLENGE BY A GULF SQUATTER QUEENSLAND MINISTER'S STATEMENT [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Abo Call — 1 August 1938

IS THIS SLAVERY? CHALLENGE BY A GULF SQUATTER QUEENSLAND MINISTER'S STATEMENT We have received from Mr. R. M. Watson, of Gregory Downs, Burketown, North Queensland, the following three items for The Abo Call : — The first item is from the Melbourne Argus of 12th January last — QUEENSLAND AND ABORIGINES Minister's Views. Brisbane, Tuesday.   If the Commonwealth can show that it will care for Australian Aborigines better than Queensland has done the State will hand over control without de- mur. This is the attitude of the Queensland Government, according to the Minister for Home Affairs (Mr. Hanlon) who has taken a personal interest in the Abo- rigines, and has twice visited their far northern reserves. "We are not concerned with the dig-   nity of officials or the advancement of anthropologists," he said, in discussing a report from Melbourne that the Com- monwealth Government soon would call a conference of Federal and State Min- isters to discuss the futur...

CAPRICORNIA TOCKY'S ESCAPE, AND LONG WALK HOME. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Abo Call — 1 August 1938

CAPRICORNIA TOCKY'S ESCAPE, AND LONG WALK HOME. Tocky is the tragic heroine of Xavier Herbert's great novel "Capricornia" — the "black-velvet" novel of the Australian North- ern Territory. One of the several great episodes of her life is her escape from the Aboriginal Compound at Port Zodiac and her long walk by the railway track to her home at Red Ochre (cattle stat- ion). Having (technically) murdered a man — unbeknown to anybody but herself — she thought she had been incarcerated in the Com- pound pending a charge of murder, but this was not so in fact. The extract below is from Chapter Thirty-two, and commences on page 530. Tocky continued to wash for the mat- ron, but instead of sleeping with the hundred bastards in the Halfcastes   Home was locked up at night in the mat- ernity section of the Compound. She   remained at the Compound for two full months, occupied mainly with laundry- work and with pondering over the change in her body and with brooding...

LAND LEASE SCANDAL IS A.P. BOARD ENTITLED TO LEASE ABO. RESERVES? [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Abo Call — 1 September 1938

LAND LEASE SCANDAL IS A.P. BOARD ENTITLED TO LEASE ABO. RESERVES? The Aborigines Progressive Association is investigating the legal position regarding the leasing of Aboriginal Reserves in New South Wales to white men for grazing purposes.   As far as we can discover, the Aborigines Protection Board is trustee for approximately 14,000 acres of land, reserved for the use of Aborigines in New South Wales. These Reserves are scattered through-   out the State, some being only a few acres in extent, and the biggest being Cummeragunja, a Reserve of 5,000 acres in the county of Bama, on the banks of the Murray River. With only a few exceptions, the Abo- riginal Reserves are poor land, of not much value to white men. Nevertheless, these Reserves were granted by Parlia- ment for the use of our people exclus- ively, and it was never intended that white men should have access to these Reserves for commercial money-making purposes. There are approximately 10,000 Abo- ...

PARLIAMENT'S DELAY [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Abo Call — 1 September 1938

PARLIAMENTS DELAY As this number of "The Abo Call" goes to press, the Aborig- ines of New South Wales are still anxiously awaiting the New Abo- rigines Act promised by the Stevens-Bruxner Government. Mr. Bruxner in his policy speech promised "A NEW DEAL FOR ABORIGINES", but he did not say whether it would be a better deal than the old one. We hope for the best and fear the the worst. The Government seems to be delaying in introducing the new Act and the "cut-and-dried" scheme of anthropologists, missionaries, and other interfering persons for a new Act to put us under the heel of the University and the Churches will now meet with severe opposition.   We have aroused the sympathy of the white community, and   many members of Parliament are now awake to the dangers of handing us over to a new Board, which would "protect" us no better than the old one. What we ask is ABOLITION OF THE ABORIGINES PRO- TECTION BOARD, and we ask for FULL CITIZEN RIGHTS FOR ALL ABO...

THE SCOURGE OF T.B. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Abo Call — 1 September 1938

THE SCOURGE OF T.B. When the white men first came to Australia, thousands of our people were wiped out by measles and the common cold, which, in their primitive state, were unknown among our people.   Today, the dread scourge of T.B. is raging among Aborigines throughout Australia, and is taking heavy toll in New South Wales. Our people inherit strong physique, but cannot contend against the poor food which the white man's charity, and benevolence, and official "protection" allows. Rations are : 8lbs of flour, 2lbs of sugar, ¼lb of tea, ¼lb of baking powder, and 1/- worth of meat per week. On this ration many thousands of Aborigines have starved to death on Government Reserves, their constitution weakened to the point where they fall victims to T.B.   Since the Aborigines Progressive Association started to stir up the Govern- ment, the official ration has in some places been increased by addition of 6- ozs. jam, 4 potatoes, 2 onions. We would like to see Mr...

Family Endowment Deductions. WHY ARE THESE MADE? [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Abo Call — 1 September 1938

Family Endowment Deductions WHY ARE THESE MADE? The Aborigines Progressive Association is taking legal advice on   the questions of deductions made by the Aborigines Protection Board from family endowment money due to Aboriginal mothers. Evidence was given before the Select Committee of Parliament, last year that such deductions were made, the money being used for the purpose of building additions to huts for Aborigines on Gov- ernment Reserves. The question which arises is whether the A.P. Board is legally entitled to make such deductions from family en- dowment money for any purpose whatso- ever. We do not doubt the good inten- tion of the A.P. Board's officials in thus attempting to finance structural additions to huts from the money due to Aborig- ines for child welfare; but nevertheless it seems to us to be an arbitrary action by the Board, which should be brought before the notice of the Commissioner for Child Endowment. On our reading of the Aborigines Pro- tecti...

Queensland's Protection ABORIGINES' DEATH PACT Father and Son. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Abo Call — 1 September 1938

Queensland's Protection ABORIGINES' DEATH PACT Father and Son. In last month's "Abo Call" we pub- lished a statement by Mr. R. M. Watson, a North Queensland grazier, to the ef- fect that Aborigines have been drowned in attempting to escape from Palm Island and other settlements off the coast of North Queensland.     We have ample evidence that Aborig- ines of Queensland are terrified of be- ing taken away from the mainland to islands off the coast, particularly Aborig- ines from the far inland, who have never seen the ocean. The Queensland Government's policy of segregating Aborigines on ocean islands is one of the most callous policies ever put into effect by an Australian Government in pursuit of the policy of extermination by "protection". The Queensland Government uses its coastal islands for lepers, criminals, and inebriates, and also for Aborigines, the intention in every case being the same — namely to get rid of pariahs by placing them far away from...

"The Abo Call" Important Announcement [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Abo Call — 1 September 1938

"The Abo Call" Important Announcement   This issue of "The Abo Call" will be the last regular monthly issue of this newspaper, which, after having been issued for six months, will now suspend publication temporarily. The issue of a regular monthly Aborig- ines' Newspaper has involved financial loss, owing to the difficulty of distribut- ing the paper among aborigines and the public. Until such time as the Aborigines Pro- gressive Association is on a stronger footing, numerically and financially, it will not be possible to conduct our propa- ganda by means of a monthly newspaper. It is intended, however, to continue the propaganda, by means of a series of pamphlets and booklets, the first of which, to be entitled THE CASE FOR THE ABORIGINES, by J. T. Patten, is now in preparation and will be publish- ed shortly.   As soon as the Government of New South Wales shows its intentions to- wards the Aborigines by passage of the new legislation that has been promise...

REFUSED OWN MONEY To Take Health Trip [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Abo Call — 1 September 1938

REFUSED OWN MONEY To Take Health Trip We reprint the following lengthy article from a recent issue of "The Northern Guardian" (Queensland) : In dealing with the Aborigines, whites indulged a sense of humour in the early days of North Queensland settlement. Traps were set with poisoned flour ; "nigger" hunts were a popular pastime ; a handful of sugar, a pipe of "baccy" se- duced the native women ; syphilis ; T.B. ; and alcohol decimated a virile, indigen- ous people. Some policemen and their black troopers played tricks on the local "boys". One black was handcuffed around a sapling on the Russel ; and perished from thirst when his captors forgot to ride back for him. Gins and piccaninnies were brained with snider butts. Out West the wealthy squatters drove the natives from vital water-holes and hunting grounds. The North West was tamed ; great herds established ; great tribes eradicated. Cruelty More Refined   Cruelty to the Aborigines was then crude ; today it is more ...

Window Dressing at La Perouse [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Abo Call — 1 September 1938

Window Dressing at La Perouse The Aboriginal Reserve at La Perouse, near Sydney, contains well-built houses, with water laid on, and other modern conveniences. The Aborigines of La Perouse make a fairly good living by   fishing (some having their own boats), and by selling toy boomerangs and souvenirs to tourists. For this reason, a number of well- meaning white people in Sydney have formed the impression that all Aborig- inal Reservations are similar to that of La Perouse. The truth is, that there is nothing like it anywhere else in New South Wales. Everything is done by the Government to make La Perouse into a "model" Reservation, or "window-dressing" ex- hibit, so that the people of Sydney, and overseas visitors, may receive a favour- able impression of the treatment of Abo- rigines in New South Wales. An example of this "pampering pol- icy" at La Perouse is the fact that un- employed La Perouse "inmates" may ob- tain white man's unemployed relief wages ; but when we...

MASSACRES IN VICTORIA HORRIBLE STORIES OF EXTERMINATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Abo Call — 1 September 1938

MASSACRES IN VICTORIA HORRIBLE STORIES OF EXTERMINATION. The following terrible stories of massacre of the blacks in the Port Phillip District (Now Victoria) are related by JAMES BON- WICK, formerly an Inspector of Schools, and well-known historian. The extracts are taken from his books, "The Wild White Man And The Blacks of Victoria", published in Melbourne, 1863. The accusing finger of history is pointed at White Australians, and today the Aborigines, the remnant of a murdered people, ask that this cruel persecution shall cease. The conflicts between the whites and blacks of Port Phillip have not been so bloody and constant as in the neighbour- ing colony of Tasmania. Our natives were a gentler race than the curly- headed Islanders. Still, a sad tale is to   be told of aggressions and murders in the olden times.   If the settlers can tell of stolen sheep and slaughtered shepherds, the natives can also rehearse a tale of seduction and murder. Mr. Protector...

CAPRICORNIA THE ADVENTURES OF NAWNIM [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Abo Call — 1 September 1938

CAPRICORNIA THE ADVENTURES OF NAWNIM We publish this month another extract from Xavier Herbert's great Novel of North Australia, CAPRICORNIA, which won the Commonwealth Prize this year. (Book published by The Publicist Publishing Coy., 209a Elizabeth Street, Sydney. Price six shillings). The following extract tells how NAWNIM, the halt caste son of MARK, is brought from his birthplace on Flying Fox Island, and sees the wonders of white civilisation for the first time. Mark was tired of Flying Fox and trepang. It was his plan to set up a new camp on Chineri Island in the Tikkalalla Group and to fish for pearl-shell on the shallow banks that lay between there and the Dutch East Indies. It was for the purpose of raising money to buy a diving-outfit that he was trying to sell the electric power plant. He was beginning to despair of ever being able to sell the plant, when he met a man named Jock Driver, who owned a cattle-station called Gunamaiah, situ- ated on the Melisande River. Jock ...
