PROPORTIONAL REPRESENTATION. ITS PROBABLE EFFECT ON THE LABOR MOVEMENT. A REVIEW OF THE NEW ELECTORAL BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 11 January 1919

PROPORTIONAL REPRESENTATION. ITS PROBABLE EFFECT ON THE LABOR MOVEMENT. A REVIEW OF THE NEW ELECTORAL BILL. By J. P. OBBORNE, M.L.A. f During the concluding session of Par liament a measure of electoral reform jpras introduced by the National Govern ment, ostensibly -with the object of break ing down the rigid machine system of party politics. It is proposed to do this by abolishing single electorates and sub stituting for them a number of divisions in the metropolis, each electing five mem bers, and a number of country elector ates, each to be represented by three mem bers. A close investigation reveals the fact that this new system is more likely to accentuate than reduce machine politics. .Under the present method a member is yery often elected for a constituency by virtue of his possession of a substantial personal following. We had an illustra tion of this during the election campaigns of 1910. In the Federal election of April, 1910, the majorities for the Labor candi dates wer...

CORRESPONDENCE. JUSTICE FOR THE SEWER MINERS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 11 January 1919

CORRESPONDENCE. JUSTICE FOR THE SEWER MINERS. Sir,— I have been trying for years to get justice done to the men who do the work of sewer constructions for Sydney. The health of the inhabitants of a large city is conditioned to a great extent by its possession of a satisfactory system of sewerage, and the men who bring such a system into being are entitled to the grati tude of the people who benefit by it. Es pecially is this so in the case of Sydney, for excavating underground in the Sydney sandstone is one of the most hurtful occu pations that a man may engage in. Any one who works for any length of time at sewer construction will almost inevitable suffer physically, will generally have his life shortened, and will sometimes after a more or less prolonged period of ill health and suffering, die of tuberculosis of the lungs. _ If men are prepared to undertake this very necessary labor for the welfare of the community, the community in its turn should prove its appreciation of the sa...

THOUGHTS ON DEMOCRACY. VI. THE NEW ECONOMIC SITUATION. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 11 January 1919

THOUGHTS ON DEMOCRACY. ? . vi. THE NEW ECONOMIC SITUATION. One of the most subtle defences of Con servatism has been the modern notion, sedulously sown, that democracy was a process so inevitable and predestined in the evolution of society that no clearly conscious and purposive direction was re quired. The dissipation of this delusion should be one of the chief services of this war. 'Democracy cannot be brought about by a drift or tendency of unconscious pur pose; ft needs conscious organisation and direction by the co-operative -will of in dividuals and nations. Until this co-operative will lias been created and made effective, it must con tinue to remain an open question whether democracy is possible. The method of this conscious operation of the human -will is, therefore, the issue of first practical importance. Now, though the necessity has been pointed out of organising the democratic will so as to attack not one or two, but many points in the vicious circle of reaction, this ...

NEW JUDGES AND THE LABOR PARTY. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 11 January 1919

NEW JUDGES AND THE LABOR PARTY. The 'Sydney Morning Herald' (9/1/1*)' ;; openly condemns the appointment ot' Speaker Cohen to a judgeship on the;' ground that 'he has not a high standing at the bar,' Later on It says: 'Mr./ Cohen is eminent in politics.' A boy or' a blackfellow sitting on top of a hill would . be in a still more eminent position. The greatest Ananias in politics' -or journalism, who knows Mr. Cohen personally would blush with shame to assert; that he was eminent in any sens© other than that he sits in a high position in the Speaker's chair. The present writer was in the Parlia mentary press gallery when Cohen was Chairman of Committees, and he was too' stupidly Tory to be commonly fair tb' political opponents. He may have im* proved of recent years, for there was plenty of room. In straight, classical Australian, Speaker Cohen is a big, fat blob, who would never ; have risen above the position ot a coal-' heaver only for money and luck. Nevertheless the 'Labor News'...

ORE BUYING. HOW THE MINER IS BOSSED. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 11 January 1919

ORE BUYING. HOW THE MINER IS BOSSED. 1 Amidst the vast number of commercial fectivities characterising our present-day civilisation few, if any, are of such a com plicated nature as that of ore-buying-. In hoary ages past, when the Phoenician ore-buyer visited Britain and traded with the woad -painted savage of Cornwall for tin oxide scratched plentifully from the rocky gorges, he made enormous profits. .Verly likely the Mediterranean civilisa tions ot that day paid him a profit of 1000 per cent, or more lor the black sand which cost at. first hand a handful of glass beads and a few cheap hatchets and knives. It was then a one-sided bargain in which the ignorant savage thought he outwitted the ore buyer on receiving valu able manufactured articles in exchange for rubbish — dirt and sand scratched out of the earth. But things are slightly altered to-day. The ignorant savage is replaced by a thinking, fairly educated miner, who can figure out a good many of the complicated values pert...

RETURNED SOLDIERS DEMANDS THE GOVERNMENT'S BROKEN PLEDGES. IMMIGRATION AND UNEMPLOYMENT. THE PROBLEM AND THE WAY OUT. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 11 January 1919

RETURNED SOLDIERS' DEMANDS ' mm -? THE GOVERNMENT'S BROKEN PLEDGES. IMMIGRATION AND UNEMPLOYMENT. THE PROBLEM AND THE WAY OUT. A body of unemployed returned soldiers have marched through the streets of Mel bourne and interviewed Acting Prime Minister Watt with the modest request that all eligibles in the public service should be sacked and their jobs given to them; also that private employers should be asked to treat their employees in the same way to make room for returned sol* diers. Whether this proposal be carried out or not by the sort of Government now in power, possessing no fixed principles of. any kind, one can never predict with any. degree of certainty. In any case, the suggestion is an utterly discreditable one to all parties concerned. In turning down conscription most em phatically Australia pronounced with ' no uncertain voice that the quesiton of en listment for military service abroad, or refraining from so doing, was the inalien able liberty of the individual to de...

THE POWER OF THE PRESS AND THE ENSLAVEMENT OF THE PEOPLE. A GREAT AND A GROWING DANGER. HOW TO ESCAPE IT. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 11 January 1919

THE POWER OF THE PRESS AND THE ENSLAVEMENT OF THE PEOPLE. A GREAT AND A GROWING DANGER. HOW TO ESCAPE IT. Time was when some of the noblest speeches in the Engilsh language were made in defence of the freedom of the press. Heavy taxation and the most severe re strictions prevented the free expression of public opinion on matters of the most vital importance. Fines and imprison ment were inflicted upon daring editors and publishers who refused to be. muzzled by despotic laws, enacted by corrupt Go vernments. A free press was everywhere hailed as the palladium of British liberty, and as the most valuable medium of- popu- lar enlightenment upon public questions. After long and arduous struggles the battle was won, and an independent press triumphantly established on the battered ruins of despotism and prejudice. Alas! Modern developments of an all pervading conscience-less capitalism have made of the press, which was once looked upon as the exponent of Freedom, the facile instrument of...

?Sir, — On the 28th December you pub lished a letter from Mr. R. J.. Clarke,. Hon. Secretary, Oatley A.L.P., under the above heading stating that he 'had forwarded a communication to the Hurstville 'Pro peller,' which had promptly turned it ?down, evidently because he happened to be the Secretary of the local A.L.P.' As the proprietor of the paper I beg to state that his statements are absolutely false. Mr. Clarke forwarded two letters, ?- both of which were published, notwith standing his assertion to the contrary. His further wail that the 'Propeller' exists mainly to boost Mr. Ley, M.L.A., is also incorrect, aB the 'Propeller' was established long. before Mr. Ley thought of seeking Parliamentary honors. It natur ally follows that the doings of the local member, whether National, Liberal, Labor, or any other pedigree, will receive pub llcity in the papers published in his elec torate. No branch Of the A.L.P. has ever cent matter of public interest to the 'Pro- peller' which has no...

WHAT OF BOLSHEVISM ? GERMANY FIGHTS TO DECIDE. INTERVENTION IN RUSSIA. WITHDRAWAL OF THE ALLIES. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 11 January 1919

WHAT OF BOLSHEVISM? GERMANY FIGHTS TO DECIDE. INTERVENTION IN RUSSIA. WITHDRAWAL OF THE ALLIES. The cables in the daily press con tinue to show tremendous disruption in Europe with a steady growth of ^ 'Bolshevism' in Germany and Aus tria, and its appearance in every eouutry in Europe. The cables would make it appear that the Russian Bolsheviks are out with a resolve to conquer the world By force of arms. This is the limit of absurdity. The Bolsheviks are certainly out to con quer the world, but their weapons are not guns and bayonets, but IDEAS. Judging by reports they are mak ing very good progress with these new means of conversion, although they are being represented to us as even more fiendish murderers than the Hun soldiers were said to be a few weeks ago. One of the moBt significant items of cable news is that of the with drawal of America from intervention in the Siberian side of Russia. The previous withdrawal of Japan was announced some days ago, and now it is stated that ...

THE NEW STATE ELECTORAL LAW. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 11 January 1919

THE NEW STATE ELECTORAL LAW. The Labor Party has no complaint to make concerning the proposed new system of proportional representation for the for the elections of the State. Those who understand the subject know that this system is mathematically correct, atid that it is all that can be asked for. How ever, what the Labor Party fears is that the extremity of its opponents may cause attempts to be made to baffle or defeat the intentions of the Act and of its sup porters in the House. As I understand it the Act provides for the commission to have all its machinery in readiness, in cluding gazettal by the Governor, not later than June 30 next. No doubt the public does not recognise what is to be done if the work is not completed within the specified time. Inquiry at the Electoral Office would seem to show that the Go vernment has nothing to do with it, and that it is for the Governor to act. But every tyro will realise that he will be governed by his advisers, and will have very litt...

THE MOLONGOLO MYSTERY [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 11 January 1919

THE MOLONGOLO MYSTERY The solemn veil of official secrecy has been lifted and we are at last free to dis cuss the question of a town of mystery which some time ago was erected on the banks of the Molongolo River within the Federal Capital area. Some two thousand men were employed in this task, and a town capable of affording house room for about six hundred families was erected in the brief space of nine weeks. A sewerage scheme and an electric light system was installed during the same period. This piece of record town construction effectu ally disposes of the slander that Austra lian workmen are a decadent race af flicted with the 'Go Slow' disease. Since the advent of Federation Australian citi zens have labored under the delusion that the Federal Capital area was the property of the people of Australia and was under , the control of an Australian Parliament, but this seems to be quite a mistaken view.. No Parliamentary vote appears anywhere on our records authorising- this expen...
