NEW PUBLICATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 19 December 1891

VNEW PUBLICATION. ? a ? \ ; Received the first three numbers (if the Victorian Railway Gazette , m monthly journal commencing Sept; 1st. The Gazette is an older, bigger, and better paper than the Ilummer ) and we couldn't, give it higher praise than that. ? The Railway Gazette is the official I organ of the Traffic Unions of Tie- J toria. It advocates federation, but not amalgamation of the various sectional unions in the service, and has a vigilant eye on all mattery of interest to members. We suggest one improvement — give a word or two on union matters outside the narrow limits of the double line of ster1-; js. The Gazette sees the ' cat' alright I in regard to the land question and in regard to threatened reductions in wages it very sensibly asks if railway men are to be paid by results, why not be credited with all the railways earn ? It goes 011 to show how not only the building of railroads, but every cheapening of transit by means of lower fares, or otherwise, adds to the va...

One Man One Vote. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 19 December 1891

One Man One Tote. [From our Melbourne Member.] ? A meeting of the citizens of Richmond (Vic.) was held in the Town Hall on Monday evening for the purpose of discussing the one man one vote question. The hall was crowded to excess, and on a motion being put affirming the principle of one man one vote the unanimous voice of the people went up in favor of the measure. The motion carried was as follows: — 'That this meeting is of opinion that the amendment of- the Legislative Council on the Constitution Amendment Bill, giving double voting power to land owners, is a serious menace to the equal political rights of the whole people, which, if adopted, would constitute legislation of class distinction and power, resulting in the domina tion of the legislature by the representatives of wealth and property, with consequent class legislation and rule.' Mr. W. Trenwith, M.L.A., made a rattling speech, but during its delivery a white headed old Tory, who ought to have known better, kept making ...

THE CRY OF CAPITALISM [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 19 December 1891

THE CRY OF CAPITALISM The November number of the Australian Mining Standard , published . in Sydney as a trade journal, is no doubt an excellent one, but ' when it attempts to criticise political matters it shows its ignorance, and the class bias of the speculators behind it. Commenting on the New Zealand imaginary depression, withdrawal of capital, and all the other bogies trotted out to frighten folks, it pro duces a fine sample of the common variety of capitalistic claptrap by blaming all this trouble on the Labor Party in the Maoriland Parliament. AJ.1 the alleged depression really amounts to this : that if a band of brigands had been in the habit of black-mailing all the people of a village, and the villagers at last got tired of this game,* and formed a Defence Association and resolved to pay no more tolls, trade would begin to get bad — -for the brigands. If emboldened by success, the De fence Party commenced to demand the return of some of its stolen goods, some of the robbe...

An Essay on Scabs. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 19 December 1891

? ? ? r An Essay on Scabs. [By Old Hank.] Scabs are also known as 'rats,' ''blacklegs,' ' white- wings,' and other names too numerous to mention, and too red-hot to hold in the naked fist. They are all of the same breed though, and if you run their pedigree back in the station stud-book, you will find that they, are all descended from Meanness, by Ignorance out of Funk, with a strong strain of that bad tempered old sire, Money-Grubber, by Selfish ness out of Hypocrite. Their employers don't think much of them, but they have lately re named them ' free '-labourers, just to amuse them and insult the Unionists. It doesn't matter much, because white-washing a fence of *box-sapling3 won't, make it into iron-bark. Not to any alarming extent it won't. Any decent Unionist who calls a scab a ' free '-labourer ought to get six months for perjury; but by the time we pass that law all the scabs will be food for the crows. If a rose by any other name would smell sweeter, then I would strongly fa...

ANTS IN THE BILLY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 19 December 1891

ANTS IN THE BILLY When we sit all around the camp 'fire Telling yarns, steep, witty, or silly, The boys exclaim to the champion liar, Mind the Ants crawling into your Billy. * * On the motion of censure on Thursday right Dr. Hollis asked some interrupters to have a 'little patience.' 'I shouldn't like to be a 'little patient' of yours said Gus Miller of Monaro. Tom Rose, of Argle, wanted to show his knowledge of Scripture by warning the Free traders that they could see ' ' the writing on wall' as Belshazzar did at the feast, only Tom said Nebuchadnezzar, and of course everybody thought he would get turned out to grass like that Hebrew hero. * * *? Arthur Rae said some people had been bitten by 'the mad dog of protection' and got the ' fiscal hydrophobia, ' but he thought the best protection for the the farmer was to give him irrigation and cheap carriage to market, tax the big absentee city landlords and bank shareholders to pay for it, and find work for the people at the same time....

NOTES BY A SPECTATOR [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 19 December 1891

NOTES BY A SPECTATOR. Nearly a thousand persons paid for admittance to the Cooma Show Grounds. Thete were of course a few complimentary tickets, but not many. You know the workers don't bleed any other class for their sports, and then carry themselves in on the dead-head racket. V ?Si- Harry Burgess was strongly in evidence as Marshal of the procession. He seems to have a weakness Monaro, and at the ball he appeari . to have a good grip of the ' subject.' j* „ ? ? ? ? ? 0? n4* Jim Moonev, the Wagga Chairman, was shearing about 20 miles from Cooma, and couldn't attend the De monstration.

SMOKE HO : ' Benclenine .still shearing, and the lads hope to cut out before Xmas. All the shearers have paid up but only eight of the shed hands so far — mostly old geisers — who are lifers on station. The weather has been bad, but the cook, D. Smith, is up to dick. * * Burrrbogie cut out at last. At this place a partiality for chows has been displayed. The management have just discovered that , the Chinese cook at the homestead is not an jr., unmixed blessing. One of the manager's ?sons is somehow connected with the trouble, f and its a lovely yarn altogether. * * J Dr. Hollis, labor member for Goulburn, made a capital speech in the House last week on taxation of land values, and argued that plank 1 3 in Labor Platf orm showed where the workers proposed to get the revenue from all right. J. D.

SHEARERS' DEMONSTRA TION AT COOMA ... — ? Shearers, Laborers, and members of Friendly Societies turned out in force Yesterday, at Cooma. The old t / c ' Wagga A. S.U. banner, . which has done yeomen's service all over the colonies and was mounted on a lorry, the new banner of the Monaro Labor Union, upon which Australia's national flower, the waratah, is con spicuous, and the beautiful emblems, of the various Friendly Societies well displayed, created a magnificent sight. As the procession marched through the principal streets of the town to the music of a good brass band, many and loud were the cheers accorded those taking part in the first labor demon stration inaugurated on Monaro. Jack M 'Donald and Jim Sullivan were the lion. sees, and were mainly responsible for the arrangements of the show. Altogether the demonstration, includ ing procession, atheletic and shearing contests, was a comple success. The ball at night was attended by seventy five couples, who danced and made merr...

A POET (deceased.) ? New Zealand possesses more news papers in proportion to the population than any country in the world. It also possesses more legislative machinery ; than is required to run the whole of - Australia. * * * The « Sacred Seven' of West Aus tralian polities, the jokers who do all the legislating as well as own the country, have things pretty much their own way, as the two principal newspapers in Perth are practically the mouthpiece of the Government.

The union men reported directly they started. Jim Farrell rep. Peter L. (Hillston) : If he cannot retain his seat without blacHegging on his party he will be shearing next year. The 27 agreed to abide by the rule of the majority on the. censure motion, and the voting was 15 to 12. Seven . of the minority then broke their pledges. Do . you call that union ? Napper (Oondoblin) : Anyone can nominated but it is folly to do so unless members know that they are not jumping out of the panfry into the ashes. The fact of the man being opposed doesn't prove that even a strong minority are dis satisfied with him. In all probability it is a a case of ' fools rushing in etc.' In the the case under notice, considering all the cir cumstances, some good reason for the change should be stated. His action ...
