STRAIGHT AUSTRALIAN SOME FRIPPERIES OF GOVERNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 28 July 1910
STRAIGHT AUSTRALIAN SOME FRIPPEEIES OP noVERNMENT. « 'l THEN the progressive legislation ^ ▼ which is now tightening its grip upon the affairs of the States, throws the estimates for the up-keep of State Go vernors into the Parliamentary waste paper basket, Australia will save appro ximately £33,000 per annum. The- com bined salaries of the six State Governors total- £23,750; the maintenance of Go vernment houses and staffs brings the total up to at least a similar sum. For the privilege of providing a job to a member of the British aristocracy New South Wales pays about £8000 per an num; Victoria, £7380; Queensland, £5000; South Australia, £4300; Western Austra lia, £5300; and Tasmania, £3400. This is the bare living cost, for in various ways these administrative ornaments are the cause of considerable additional expense Then we come to that gilded parapet on the legislative rooftop, the second cham fcer. Although the political chairwarmers known as Legislative Councillors give the...
SIX STATE EXCRESCENCES. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 28 July 1910
SIX STATE EXCRESCENCES. *T* HE problem ahead ,of Labor, in all * six States, is that of shifting the obsolete Legislative Councils. It is a pro blem whose solution is imperative. Either the Labor movement must break down the Fortresses of Fat, or else those citadels of anti-Sosh. will stop the Labor move ment. We can take our choice. Any policy otlier than that of complete aboli tion is one of suicide for the party. Hold ing firm control of the Federal legislation works, and confronted now with splendid opportunities for upsetting Conservatism in the States, the leaders and= the rank and file of the Labor movement must de vote the whole of their energies to the smashing down of the six Chambers of reaction and coercion. To attempt any thing else is to simply waste time. The fact that the New South Wales Legisla tive Council is a nominee body, and that a Labor Government could swamp it with fresh appointments signifies nothing. New South Wales is only a, portion of Australia; only on...
THE GREAT FRENCH REVOLUTION. PETER KROPOTKIN'S BOOK. AN APPRECIATION AND A VALUATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 28 July 1910
THE GREAT FRENCH REVOLUTION/ PETER KROPOTKfN'S BOOK, AN APPRECIATION AND A VALUATION. Gustave Le Bon has insisted that psychologically the essential distinction between the English and the French is that the English seek liberty and the French seek equality. Peter Kropotkin's book may be presented as strengthening the view. It is Equality's epic — the re cord of Equality's grandest experiment., It is unlike any previous 'history of the Great Revolution, though, indeed, Belfort Bax's vigorous monograph may be claimed to be its legitimate forerunner, and Car lyle's cinematographic masterpiece its re lentless ballast. -It would probably be safe to add that Kropotkin's book must here after rank as the indispensable companion of all other histories upon the subject. For this work is as new in its treatment as it is unique in its position. It is the economic side. of the Revolution. Its 600 pages, divided into 68 chapters, are chiefly utilised in establishing the fundamental difference be...
MR. A. F. BUCKLEY. SELECTED LABOR CANDIDATE FOR WALHALLA, V. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 28 July 1910
MR. A. F. BUCKLEY. SELECTED LABOR CANDIDATE FOR WALHALLA, V. The death of Mr. Albert Harris, for many years representative of Walhalla in the Victorian Assembly, has led to the election on July 29 for a new member for the district. Mr. A. F. Buckley, the selected Labor candidate, has entered upon a vigorous campaign, and is being assisted by members of the Parliamentary Labor Party; Miss Mulcahy of the Wo men's Organizing Committee, and Mr. P. W. McGrath, also lending1 aid in the fight. Mr. Buckley, it will be remembered, eon tested Flinders in the last Federal cam paign, and gave a very good account of himself against Mr. W. H. Irvine. Jacobins. This club 'had none of : .the power and revolutionary initiative' with which modei'n political writers endow it. The very persons composing the mother society in Paris were chiefly well-to-do middle-class men. How could they guide the Revolution?' T}hey were never a centre of action, were 'pretended leaders.' who thought as little as other ...

NEW YORK BETTING r RESTRICTIONS. The new law preventing betting- of any kind on the New York courses comes into operation on September 1. Referring to the subject in the London 'Sports- man,' ' Vigilant **.'.' recently wi'Ote: — ' -Th« law against oral bookmaking, or making bets w-ithout 'writing them down, is ap« parently to be enforced not by arresting the offenders, but-by coming down on -the racecourse proprietors and sending them to jail, and presumably the'word^of police spies is to be accepted that bets* have been made by word of mouth on. the race, tracks or on the lawns or stands, and in the enclosures..

KISSING THE BIBLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 28 July 1910
KISSING THE BIBLE. The dirty custom of kissing 'a court Bible has at length come into such general disfavor in Australia that in New South Wales and' Tasmania bills are before Par liament to abolish it. In the former State it. is ororiosed that oersons being: sworn shall hold the Bible in hand and swear by the name of the Deity. In Tasmania, if the bill is passed, the utterance of the words ' I. swear ' as a preliminary to evi^ dence will be sufficient. In Western Aus tralia, under the Evidence Act of .1906, the Scotch form of oath has been brought into use 'by the police magistrate at Perth. In. this the witness raises his right hand, jand repeats the. formula, 'I swear by Almighty God to tell the truth, etc.' .The ancient formula of an oath is, it will be observed, maintained' throughout, though, there is little . doubt., that precisely as exact and correct eyidence', .would be given . if ' the whole ceremony were abolished and the offence of giving' false testimony in a witness-b...

ESCAPED PRISONER'S INGRATITUDE. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 28 July 1910
ESCAPED PRISONER'S INGRATITUDE. At Parramatta Quarter Sessions on Monday Walter Edwards, a carrier and :coal merchant at Leura, was charged with being an accessory after the fact to the escape of Victor Greentree from the Ka toomba lockup. Greentree, who had been re-arrested, gave evidence that, though a stranger to Edwards, the latter, after being told of his escape from the lock up, had fed, clothed, and shaved him, pro vided him with money, shaken hands with him, and wished him good luck. Green tree said he gave information to the police because he thought Edwards had given him away. Edwards' defence was that he had thought Greentree wrong in his mind, and did not believe he had escaped from jail. He had not shaved Greentree. The jury found accused not guilty. Greentree, who had been in custody on charges of breaking and entering, and committing various acts of theft, pleaded guilty to these and to breaking out of the lockup, and was remanded for sentence.

Trades Hall 'Comments. Reference to the Richmond tragedy was contained in a resolution Avhich was sub mitted, to the Melbourne Trades Hall Council by the executive at last Thursday night's meeting as follows: — 'That this Council, on behalf of the workers, ex presses its profound sorrow at the appal ling Richmond railway accident, and offers to the relatives of those who were killed, as well as those who were injured, its heartfelt sympathy, and it urges that the Government institute, without delay, an exhaustive public enquiry into the cause of the shocking catastrophe.'
