THINGS IN GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 6 August 1892

THINGS IN GENERAL [By Demos.] Sun-blessed, monopoly-ridden New South Wales, has lately experienced a first taste of the curse of Ireland, an eviction. Con Lindsay, the Socialist and earnest labor reformer, had his goods and chattels seized and removed without a moment's notice last week. He was £3 10s. in arrears to the secretary of a distress committee in Leich hardt. Upon inquiry I find the evictor was not a native of the Holy Land, although his acts do savor of Jerusalem. After all,, we need not wonder at the iniquity of it. Secre taries of charity committees were ever an unclean, inhuman lot. Yicle late cablegrams from Pittsburgh, U.S.A., a common soldier had the audacity to cheer the man who shot at Sweater Car negie's manager. The lawless 'law and order' push promptly caught him, and hung him up by the thumbs for half an hour. Surely humanity, manhood, and honor are dead, when so-called civilized nations treat the few men they have in that way, and permit things like Carnegie ...

Spence going- for Parliament — Dundas (V.) The Argus thus gives him a lift : — ' Mr Spence outside Parliament is comparatively harmless, inside he would be mischievous.'

KATHLEEN MAVOURNEEN. — ' — 1 ? ^ — ; ? . The recent visit of James Whitcomb Riley to Mr Crouch, conyBoser of the music of u Kathleen Mavourneen,'' who is now in extreme age living in poverty in Baltimore, inspires these verses by Mr Riley : Kathleen Mavourneen:! — The song is still ringing As fresh and as clear as the trill of the birds ; In world-weary hearts -it is sobbing and aiugiug In pathos too' sweet for the tenderest words. O, have we forgotten the one who first breathed it — O, have we forgotten, liis rapturous art — Our meed to the master ? whose genius be queathed it ? O, why art thou silent, thou voice1 of my heart ? Kathleen Mavourneen! — Thy lover still lingers ; 3?he long night is waning — the stars pale and few ; The sad serenader with tremulous fingers, Is bowed with his tears as the lily with dew ; The old harp-strings quaver — the old voice is shaking — In siglis and in sobs moans the yearning refrain — The old vision dims, and the old heart is breaking — Kathleen...

NOTES BY THP WAY By De. Wabre. Visiting Sydney the other day, methought, perchance, I may see the fruits- of good?, government. Well, so I did — destitution, ' ' poverty, misery, starvation, death. Yea, verily, our bleeding country sufferetli under a .. load of evils, and our good rulers smile and wot not. Charity covereth a multitude of sins. Even so, brother Capitalist Cop-all, that's true, aad as surely as death comes so are the starving citizens of Sydney bartering their birthright — Freedom — for a mess of pottage. Mr. J. Lyne was here the other - day, and gave his lot clean away. Was op posed to syndicating railways, but would build the lines first ancl sell the land afterioards. And, oh, ye gods and little fishes, G. R. Dibbs' reputation is built on the same stopping of land ^ sales. What a happy family. The obstreporous Kidd backs the miners, Fat-man Barton skulks behind law and order, Lyne trims re land, Copeland bull- t dozes a railway, and G. R., of that ilk, strokes his ...

DEPENDENT GLASSES AND FINCH OF HUNGER. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 6 August 1892

DEPENDENT GLASSES AND PINCH OF HUNGER. [By J. F.] When the lawyer and doctor take to dis cussing the labour question, and arrive at the conclusion that professional men, trades people, and farmers are substantially in the same boat with the wag-e- earners, it may be hailed as a sign of approaching union among the dispossessed classes against the common enemy and master of them all— the private landowner. , The hat sent round the country the other day for soup kitchen relief to the starving Melbourne multitudes, by persons who would sooner hang than give the poor justice, has fixed attention in an emphatic way upon the disgusting spectacle of thousands upon thousands who can find neither bread to eat or work to do, and this in the heart of a country that, so far as national resources go, stands among the very foremost places of the habitable globe. People indig fy nantly ask what is the matter with Victoria, where ten or twelve millions could easily subsist in comfort, not to say aff...

HENRY GEORGE ON COMPETITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 6 August 1892

HENRY GEORGE ON COMPETI TION. Dear Hummer, Mr Hirsch is rough on yours truly in his last, yet I venture to hope that he is out of it, more especially regarding the ' shallow literature.' To my mind, Mr Hirsch fails to grasp the situation thoroughly. I do not think that I ever hinted that a man should not receive what he has produced ; I only object to him receiving what he has not pro duced. Suppose B. is a digger, and during his digging he unearths a diamond. Well, he has been a fortnight delving before he found it. The price of that diamond is the cost of iiis labor. He did not make the dia mond ; it was there waiting for someone to find it. I can scarcely make out how Mr Hirsch can find sufficient temerity to assert that production for use is a shibboleth. We only produce for use nowadays, but our in fernal commercial system adds a fictitious price to many commodities which would be more generally used were they exchanged at cost price. I hold that thie simplest and easiest way t...

SHEARING ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 6 August 1892

SHEARING ITEMS Toulby Station, Brewarrina, started shearing* on Tuesday, July 25th. The Laborers at Curragh sent in £3 6s for transmission to Broken Hill. Casterton Branch (V.) has appointed R. F. Wallis as Penola agent A.S.U., and Pat Power for Hamilton. A.S.U. President Spence informs us that Mr D. Temple, General Secretary, has decided not to stand for re-election. Gundabooka cut out on Monday after three weeks shearing, and the twenty odd . men brought up from Sydney for shed work are slung out to help swell the crowds at Dunlop and Winbar.' Scone shearers nominated Mr W. G. Spence as President A. S.U., Langwell and Rae, M's.L.A., as Vice-Presidents, Thos. 'Williams, M.P., as Treasurer, and D. Temple, Secretary. Langlands, manager Gundabooka, says the laborers were intimidated to join the Union. As if the men, even if they did come from Sydney on free pass, wanted to be told the second time that they had been used by the P.U. as instruments of tyranny and op pression. Anyway, th...

PLURAL VOTING AND POLITICAL CORRUPTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 6 August 1892

PLURAL VOTING AND POLITICAL CORRUPTION. The subject of 'One man one vote' is of such importance and the ignor ant and selfish are so persistent in their opposition to this fundamental prin ciple of political justice, that it cannot be too often insisted upon by every lover of liberty and fair-play. In New South Wales as in most other countries possessing representative institutions, there are many stringent and elaborate regulations to prevent bribery and corruption. It is true that all these laws have met with the determined opposition of the Tories, at all times and in all countries; and even now they are looked upon as a beastly nuisance , by 1 'the wealthy lower , orders' generally. Nevertheless the growth of political morality has caused all parties to agree that gold should no longer possess the power to purchase a passport to the political Paradise ; hence the purchase and sale of votes is now punishable as a crime against the common interests of the nation. It appears to me,...

THE SWEATER. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 6 August 1892

THE SWEATER. ? + ? (From Com monweal, Eng.) The man who controls the bodies and sonls Of his fellows because they are poor, Who sweats all his wealth from woe and ill health, And steals all their pitiful store. A wolf with man's face, he's a foe to his race, The helpless and weak are his prey. He never will mend until we make an end, And drive the cursed sweater away. Not much do we get, however we sweat, Our masters their profits will make. And then for the rent, we must be content, The landlord shall most of it take. The children and wife must scramble through life, Be thankful to eat when they may ; Be always half fed, and go hungry to bed, Till we drive the cursed sweater away. Though they can with pride in carriages ride While we go on foot in the mud, It is we who provide, while whatever betide, We don't get enough of good food. Indeed we deserve to suffer and starve Until we no longer obey ; But rise like a man, and do all that we can To drive the cursed sweater away.

THE BROKEN HILL LOCK-OUT [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 6 August 1892

THE BROKEN HILL LOCK-OUT The miners have now been out nearly five weeks, and no signs of a settlement of the dispute. All hands are staunch, and Unionists every where are sending along the dollars. No attempt has yet been made to introduce black labor. Melbourne and Sydney unemployed resolve not to take the places of the strikers. Secretary Sleath received an ovation on his return from the shareholders meeting in Melbourne, where the directors put up Lawyer Purves to squelch him. Purves evidently believes in Freedom of Contract — outside his own Union. The Union stores are proving a success, and the butchers who shut down on the miners have fallen in the soup. The Labor conditions at the mines are suspended until the 15 th of the present month. It is alleged that the Hon. R. C. Baker, of S.A., actually wired to the Sydney directors of the Central Company urging them to re commend the New South Wales Government the arrest of the 'ringleaders' on July 7 last. Some of his own ' push' h...
