HERE AND THERE IN THE BACK COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 6 August 1892

HERE AND THERE IN THE BACK (C0iTNTRY. fBY ' Paroo.V On Fr-iday night the committees of the Bourke tFnions met at the A.S.U. office to receive a deputation from the Early Closing Association re the refusal of . certain Bourke storekeepers to observe the Early Closing movement. After hearing those gentlemen, it was decided to appoint a representative from each of the Unions, in conjunction with one from the Association, to draw up a circular to be distributed among members, naming those stores that refuse to fall into line ; but before sending them out the storekeepers be waited on and requested to accede to the wishes of the Association, fail ing which they be black-listed. Messrs Cann and Edden, M's.P., arrived by train on Sunday evening. The Railway Station was crowded with people. The com mittee of the Shearers, Laborers, Carriers, Coaclibuilders, and Early Closing Unions were on the platform to welcome them. From the amount of interest shown on all sides, Tuesday night's meeting ...

OUR SISTERS' COLUMN. President Spence asks us to Help Organize the Women Workers. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 6 August 1892

OUR SISTERS' COLUMN. ? ^ ? President Spence asks us to Help Organize the Women Workers. Dear Hummer, — A word or two to enlist the co-operation of all our friends in helping on the noble work of placing women workers in a higher posi tion — economic, social, and political. We have made arrangements for enrolling them in the Australian Workers Union. This will give them the practical support of shearers and laborers. We now want all hands — officers of all Unions, District Com mittees, local agents, etc. — to take up the work and boom the women's section of the A.W.U. We are enrolling free, and where desired will accejA the 10s annual contribu tion in instalments of (say) one or two shillings per month. We have three or four women organizers at work already, and I am confident our sweethearts, wives, and sisters will show the sterner sex that they are true unionists, and fit to be the mothers of the coming race of Australians. They are ready to fight side by side with those who are s...

"KNOW THE RIGHT, THEN ACT THY PART MANFULLY." [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 6 August 1892

- KNOW THE RIGHT, THEN ACT THY PABT MANFULLY.' ? 9 ? Dear Hummer, — You are on fclie right track ; keep on hum ming in the interest of the largest, most useful, and worst paid class of the com munity, viz., tlie working class. And, by the bye, all honest thinking men are beginning to ask why there should be any other class ? ' He 'who will not -work, neither shall he eat,' wants revising tliusly — ' He who will do no useful work shall have no abiding place in a community of wealth-producers.' And it should be revised thus because it is a regular old parrot cry of scheming capitalists and heaven-born rulers that they work as hard, or harder, than the so-called working man. Well, sir, if there is any truth in their statement, and I quite admit there is at times, I nevertheless claim that it is work we could very well do without. And we should find that it would be very much to our interest if they struck work once and for ever. For even when they speculate in manufactures, etc., it is...

BALLOTS AND BULLETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 6 August 1892

BALLOTS AND BULLETS. Dear Hummer, The recent cables from America inform us that a party of police and ' Pinkerton' troops who attempted to overawe some strikers at Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, were set upon by the Unionists, who erected barri cades of steel rails, procured cannons and rifles, and defeated the Pinkertons, eventu ally escorting them away in safety after killing a few, and compelling the remainder to salute the Union flag. This result was brought about by the em ployers attempting to enforce ' sweeping reduction in wages,' so cablegramrners in form us. Anyway, it is about the best item of ' Labor' news we have heard for a longtime, in my opinion. The tragic ending of the strikers who were shot is better than lingering starvation, and the lesson taught to slave-driving employers and corrupt Go vernments is a startling one, and an unmis takable warning of greater deeds to follow. This is not the first revolt of the enslaved white iron-workers of Pittsburg, although it is the...

HENRY GEORGE ON COMPETITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 13 August 1892

HENRY GEORGE ON COMPETI TION. Dear Hummer, I had no intention to be rough on my old friend, Larry Petrie, personally. AH I wanted to do was to expose what seemed to me fal lacious reasoning. If anything I said has hurt him, it was entirely unintentional on my part and I trust he will pardon it. All the same, however, he must permit me ? to expose the mistakes he has made in his last letter. In one part of it he says ' I do not think that I ever hinted that a man should not receive what he has produced, ' and in another he advocated common owner ship of wealth on the plan ' ( from each ac cording to his capacity ; to each according to his need.' To me this is an obvious con tradiction. For if we take from anyone the least thing which his labor produces, whether according to his capacity or not then ' ( a man (this man) does not receive what he has pro duced.' Evidently Mr Petrie must choose either one thing or another. He cannot hunt with the hounds and run with the hare. When he has...

OUR SISTERS' COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 13 August 1892

OUR SISTERS' COLUMN. ? + ? Dear Hummer, Mrs. English, President of the Summer Hill Branch of the Woman's Sufferage League, lately made a speech, in which she stated that women in some countries carried the hod and were contented. By the style of her speech, it would appear that the lady would like to see the same state of things exist here. Surely any honest man or woman who ever saw a woman carry a hod would not care to see his mother or wife or sister climbing a ladder to the height of twenty feet or higher with a hod of mortar on her shoulder. In Poland many years ago numbers of women earned their living at this most distressing work. They wore short dresses and a scarcity of underclothing. Surely in this young country, with its democratic ideas, and the fair amount of freedom bestowed on women, we do not want to degrade our womankind thus. Carrying the hod, climbing the ladder, is not in her line, and it is but few, if any, would do either from choice ; and as yet there has not ...

Pittsburg (U.S. A:) miners still mak things lively, and the military are again called out. The waggon-builders in various parts of the States are effectively boycotting Car negie's iron.

HERE AND THERE IN THE BACK COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 13 August 1892

HERE AND THERE IN THE BACK COUNTRY. [By 'Paroo.' The movement in re the Early Closing is gaining ground rapidly. The only store keeper. who now refuses to close at 6 p.m., being the ' Wandering Jew.' To-night a procession paraded the main street, carrying the effigy of the manager ; which after being tried and condemned by the populace, was sentenced to be hanged and burnt ; which was carried out amid groans. The band at the same time played the Dead March. The following sheds have started since last writing — Glenariff, Brindingabba, Dumble, Cuttabulla, Milroy, Gnomery, Curraweena, and Warraweena. The latter had most of their shearers engaged through Whitely King, but at the roll call 16 were missing, and their places had to be filled with Union men : much to the chagrin of the manager, who is Chairman of the Local Branch of the P.U. Dunlop makes a start to-day (8th), this shed was to have started, according to Whitely King, first week in July, and the men engaged by him have been ...

AS OTHERS SEE US. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 13 August 1892

AS OTHERS SEE US The travelling correspondent of the Sunday Times thus talks about us. He is descanting on the dulness of the times in Wagga and says : — I came across but one man who was kept going from morning till night, and he was the secretary of the Shearers' Union and editor of that sprightly little paper The Hummer, which, as my readers doubtless know, is the official organ of the A.S,U. Arc EXCELLENT SCHOOL. Throughout the regular office hours Mr. Head's sanctum was thronged with shearers, who^ dropped in either for' the purpose of ob taining information concerning the progress of shearing* operations out back, the condition of the roads, &c., &c., or with a view of quietly talking over matters of public impor tance. I must candidly confess that I was more than surprised at the elevated tone of most of these discussions, and the rabid anti democrats who are wont to rave about the 'illiterate working classes,' and who reck lessly assert that the proletariat i...
