PAYING FOR THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 4 January 1919

PAYING FOR THE WAR. Great prominence was given during the British election campaign to the demand that Germany should pay the whole cost of the war, on the ground that she was the aggressor. If that argument stands good then it must cut all round. Germany started fighting Belgium, France, and Russia. Great Britain declared war against Ger many. Italy declared war against Austria, and later on against Turkey and Germany, although at the outbreak of the war she was actually a partner of Austria and Ger many as a member of the Triple Alliance, and was offered important concessions by her two partners to continue neutral. Roumania remained neutral for half the period of the war, and finally declared war against Austria and Germany, al though offered terms by them to keep out of the conflict. Portugal early declared war against Germany; and America, as everyone knows, came in in 1917. Taken altogether, more nations butted in against Germany than were attacked by that Power. Consequently ...

THE PRICE OF WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 4 January 1919

THE PRICE OF WAR; The official Publicity Department of the Northcllffe press recently secured an inr terview with the well-knoW Eugeriist, Dr. Saleeby, with the view of ascertaining his views of the' 'effects upon the people of the Central Powers of the Allied block ade, from a biological standpoint. The interview was considered an emi nently satisfactory one, and Dr. Saleeby's conclusions were given the widest pub licity which the Northcliffe corporation could command as a triumphant example of a successful win-tlte-war policy. They deserve yet wider circulation ; they should be translated into every language and put into the hands of every woman in the world. If the perusal of that dreadful document did not cause present or potential mothers of men to revolt against future militarism in all lands, then no message from Heaven or vision of Hell could induce them to do anything. - Dr. Saleeby says: 'If German parents of to-day are mal nourished, or underfed, or semi-stai'ved, or pois...

SIMONOFF MUST NOT GO TO JAIL APPEAL FUND. As already notified, an appeal on be half of Peter Simonoff is now being made.

No title [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 4 January 1919

Why is defeat after defeat written in the pages of trade union history? Be cause the workers, organised on craft union lines, have proven too weak in the fight against their bosses, organised In one solid body. Then why place further reliance on the weapons of olden days? One of the most amusing things about Capitalism is the little storekeeper who imagines he is working for himself and that he is his own boss. The capitalists set the price on what he buys, and com petition, controlled by the capitalists, sets the selling price. The little profit that the big capitalists allow him to make are his wages. He is nothing more or less than a distributing agent for the big capitalists, and they are content to pay him his wages disguised as profits.

THE BRITISH GENERAL ELECTIONS. HOW THE VOTES WERE DISTRIBUTED. A POSSIBLE EXPLANATION. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 11 January 1919

THE BRITISH GENERAL ELECTIONS. HOW THE VOTES WERE DISTRI BUTED. A POSSIBLE EXPLANATION. A correspondent forwards an analysis of the votes cast at the recent Bi'itish elections showing the percentage of votes to each candidate returned. As will be seen they differ so widely that either the figures must be incomplete or the redistribution of seats must have been a piece of colossal gerrymandering. Of course under the ordinary system of voting1 in vogue in the United Kingdom it is quite possible at any time for a minority of votes to return a majority of candidates, but in the present instance the discrepancies are so enormous that some explanation not yet to hand is re quired to account for them. The figures* 'are as follows, omitting fractions: — ? Asquith Party (old Liberal gang): 37 members elected; number of votes polled, 1,300,616, or an average of 35,151 votes to each member. Labor Party: G6 members elected; num ber of votes polled, 2.237.175; number of votes per member, 33,896....

IMPERIAL FEDERATION. WHAT IT MEANS TO AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 11 January 1919

IMPERIAL FEDERATION. WHAT IT MEANS TO AUSTRALIA. There is every reason to tear that the - Tory triumph in the recent British elec ? tions will renew the danger of Imperial . Federation being- imposed upon the . British Dominions. The presence in Eng .. .land of Hughes and Cook or Pearce will materially add to that danger for Aus tralia: Unless universal disarmament is agreed upon at the Peace Conference, i' 'Which is unlikely, all the old evils of mili tarism will be maintained, ' u Imperial Federation would mean an ' Imperial army -and an Imperial navy. ;E3ach portion and dependency would be ?fcound to supply its Quota of men and ; guns for the army and its quota of ships .'Jtor the navy- Also its quota of hard cash : jfor the maintenance of both. ? .'

THE "HERALD" RELATES THE MORALITY OF BIG BUSINESS. THE MEAT TRUST AND THE PLUTE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 11 January 1919

r THE ' HERAID .«? RELATES THE MORALITY OF BIG BUSINESS. THE MEAT TRUST AND THE PLUTE PRESS. -FROM THE 'SYDNEY MORNING HERALD.') It has been asserted, and * again and [Wain denied, that the Chicago Meat Trust I Is operating in Australia. If the asser tion is true, the fact is of outstanding im portance to all of us, not to the consumers only, but to the producers as well, because the Way of trusts is to fight for a monopo ly, and when a monopoly comes between producer and consumer the result gener ally is that the consumer buys at high .prices, and the producer sells at low prices. A commission which was appointed l-y the United States Government to in auire into the working of the Chicago JMeat Trust and its ramifications de livered its report in August, and that re port was summarised in a recent number of the 'Westminster Gazette.' The com missioners observe that the difficulties j)Ut in their path compel them to present a report Which' is an understatement rather than an oversta...

THE BLUE LAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 11 January 1919

THE BLUE LAKE. I have journeyed far across the world, Known other lands than these, Through foreign wilds have wandered far, Have followed Fortune's shining star Beyond the tropic seas. Aye, scenes of grandeur I have known Upon this splendid sphere; Yet, midst the fairest scenes that grace This teeming earth's God-lifted face, I call the Biu.-j Lake peer. When down its dreamy depths I gaze Strange thoughts encompass me; I wander in a world afar, A world where silent rivers are, And reach a silent sea! No seabird sweeps its waters blue, Its shores unscathed by storm; No breakers drive at close of day Against grim cliffs of granite grey— Its waters lie in Nature's norm. Aye, Nature's hand in the ages past Fashioned a wondrous screen, Suspended sheer from the farthest ledge, Athwart the rock to the water's edge, In radiant gold and green. Nor writer's pen, nor painter's brush Hath rendered a picture true Of those mystic waters sparkling bright Under a glimmering, shimmering light; Star...

THE GOVERNMENT AND RETURNED SOLDIERS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 11 January 1919

THE GOVERNMENT AND RETURNED. SOLDIERS. It would appear that the Federal Go«! vernment intends to remain true to its reputation for non- consideration of the pledges it has given. The spectacle of hundreds of returned soldiers marching the streets asking for employment seems to be more than a reflection upon .the Re patriation Department— that expensive in-, stitution brought Into being with a Min-( ister in charge for the purpose of avoid ing such spectacles. The Government is now reduced to favorably considering such inhuman proposals as dismissal of all alleged eligibles in order to give work to the returned men. At any rate, the Government, true to its instincts, desires to give the people of Australia a positive illustration of the determination to make the workers pay and provide work alsc for the returned soldiers. At the same time millions of pounds are voted for th« specific purpose of giving a full' and dig nified recognition of the sacrifices that these men have made for t...

WE KNEW IT MUST COME TO THIS! [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 11 January 1919

WE KNEW IT MUST €0M§ TO THIS! The Labor Movement was informed -by a know-all daily press that it blew out its own brains when it hunted Hughes, Hol man, Pearce and others from its ranks. Every presumptuous poll-parrot who hadn't two opinions Of his own on any subject to rattle in his brain-box bought this penny-wise opinion from the penny press and glibly retailed it as if it were a spark of divine wisdom emanating from his own massive intellect. The fact that we of the Labor Move ment had been associated with these men for long years, in some instances for nearly a quarter of a century, and knew something of their quality, was not taken into account. We stated that in regard to many of them we had long_ recognised their de fects, selfishness and meanness in some, ambitions in others, egotism in still other, trickiness and unreliability in most of them. We showed how they had used the Movement for their own selfish ends, or had utterly failed to recognise in their actions the fundam...

CORPORAL MURPHY ON TOUR. i Corporal C. H. Murphy, secretary of U.S. and S.P.L. and of -the- A.L.P. Execu tive, has arrived in Brisbane after a two-, weeks' tour of the N.S.W. Northern Rivers on behalf of the A.L.P. He addressed hugo meetings at Tamba, Ulmarra, Brushgrove. Ha r wood. South Grafton, and two In Grafton city, outlining the policy, of the Labor Party on repatriation,, land, and education: also severely criticising1 and expressing the Insincerity of the HoN man Government in its treatment of re turned soldiers. His addresses were attentively listened . to, and the speaker was heartily applauded throughout, which is a good indication ot the altered attitude of the public towards the movement in such a notoriously, antl-: Labor electorate as the Clarence, and' is a' good augury for the future success of Labor. The Mayor of Grafton. Lieut. Williams and Mr. Ager.and others severely criticised Corporal Murphy from the platform antf through the press, accusing him of dia loyalt...

ESPERANTO. THE O.B.L. AND THE O.B.U. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 11 January 1919

ESPERANTO. THE O.B.L. AND THE O.B.U. The one big language, Esperanto, for the One Big Union makes the interna tional movement yery easy for the One Big Union. Without a universal lan guage the position of the workers 'as a world organisation' would be futile. Just imagine a meeting of world delegates, speaking their different languages, why that would be a most ridiculous meeting-. But with a knowledge of Esperanto, the position would be reversed. Instead of chaos we would have just the opposite, intelligence. Delegates from every land would be able to meet and discuss world problems with the greatest of ease. Es peranto has laid the foundation of true internationalism. It has brought together' on one common platform a majority o£ the nations speaking one language.

A ONE BIG UNION PHILOSOPHY. Sir,— The '6.B.U.' is a co-operation founded through the industrial necessity — Protection. Protection from the parasitical pirate of trusts, syndicates, and combines. Protection from these Bacchante carni vals of despotic governments. Epirons these — these caterers of class sentiments by class commandments who sit in their cocooneries and spin webs of virulent legislation— gotten from books. These birds: we know them by their manure. See;-— there in their bug-eaten seats. See! How they perch. There, Hope Is a liar, and our faith ex- | hausted.

MR. CATTS AND THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 11 January 1919

MR. CATTS AND THE WAR. Sir, — Re Mr. Catts's alleged reply to my criticism of his speech in the Federal Parliament on the A.L.P. War Ballot. Mr. Catts quite failed to comprehend the full intention of my letter, which was meant to be friendly in its tone, and was intended for the benefit of the Labor Movement, and, incidentally, for the bene fit of Mr. Catts. The mere fact that he is a member of Parliament is of no moment, so far as his liability to criticism is concerned. The man on the stump, the woman worker, the canvasser, and the seller of literature are all indispensable agents in making the existence of the member pos sible, and should command the same ap preciation and respect. My criticism was an endeavor to ex amine the fundamental principles of tho Labor Movement and to find any recog nition by Mr. Catts of the historical dis covery of Karl Marx, who gave to the Movement its true scientific position by demonstrating the necessity of the 'class struggle.' I certainly fail t...
