LABOR'S BATTLE CRY. A SUGGESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 18 January 1919
\mms battle €§&« A SUGGESTION. -By C. H. LLOYD.) The struggle of Capitalism to shift the great new burden of war taxes on to the people will, therefore, mark a new era in fiscal poli tics. In this struggle organised labor must take a hand. For the main- ' ~ tenance of a high standard of public expenditure on socially produc tive services, and the issue of trie methods of taxation by which the ever-growing public revenue is to be obtained, are of fundamental im . portance to democracy. The above quotation is the concluding paragraph of the article entitled 'Thoughs on Democracy, 'VI.,' which ap peared in the last issue of 'The Labor News,' January 11, 1919; and, as the. ex pressed opinion of one of the world's leading economists, it may well serve as a text for a few remarks, and a sugges tion regarding the methods of taxation in the future. During the past four years the' majority or people' were so intensely interested in 'winning the war' that they had abso lutely no time ...

WAR LOANS AND REPUDIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 18 January 1919
WAR LOANS AND M REPUDIATION. To repudiate a just debt is dishonorable; in fact, is no different in principle to plain thieving, only a little meaner. To be compelled to pay a debt you do NOT owe is thieving on the part of the fellow who bludgeons you into doing it. Let us not therefore try to settle this subject of war loans by abusing each other, because hard names prove nothing-. This war was supposed to be fought to save us all from destruction, slavery and entire confiscation of the national wealth, public and private, by an all-devouring enemy. Of course I have no proof that this was so. but as all our leading men with inside information said so, they^at anyrate can not dispute their own statements now the war- is over. To ward off these frightful dangers nearly sixty thousand good Australians gave their lives, over a quarter of a mil lion risked their lives, tens of thousands oi whom lost their limbs, their health, their eyesight, or their reason, and the majority suffered inc...

RETURNED SOLDIERS ? * . .... SYKES'S CRAWL8OME REQUEST. ?» ? . ANSI FULLER'S READY RESPONSE. That section of returned soldiers who last week appealed to the New South Wales Government for preference in em ployment in waterside work are presum ably gratified at the claims and offer ad vanced by their spokesman and the re sult their appeal achieved. And yet let them consider cold facts. Their secre tary, F. Sykes, sought, first absolute pre ference, or, alternatively, preference co equal with that extended by the Govern ment to the so-called 'loyalists,' persons better described by well-known and well merited unionist terms. That is to say, Sykes, for .his organisa tion, agreed that its members should be classified with men for whom all unionist workers express honest loathing and con tempt, and fo'r whom they have coined class names that fit them like skins. And' Sykes went further. For his or ganisation he gave the Government a pledge that if it did what he asked his1 associates wot...

THE COMMUNITY AND THE BABY [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 18 January 1919
THE COMMUNITY AND M BAGi ; , j .... ^ __, (Alfred Russel Wallace in his great work 'Social Environment and Moral Reform', makes a special point, of the bankruptcy of science as applied to the physical laws of health, when science is confronted by' diseases caused by an unjust and un scientific social system. He takes as an illustration the enamelling trade of Eng land, which is almost entirely carried on by female labor. He shows that the clearest evidence was supplied to the Brit ish House of Commons that this industry is carried on under conditions absolutely disastrous to motherhood and infant life. Physiological evidence, based upon the most careful, scientific .. investigation was offered showing .that the chemical fumes airfongst which Jhese^English women work not only acted as. a .corrosive upon the' tissues of the lungs of the workers* but that these poisonous fumes destroyed the delicate tissues of the human body, and made it impossible for women working under such conditio...

WILLIAM MORRIS HUGHES. 'TRUCULENT,' 'EGREGIOUS,1' 'SWASHBUCKLER.' :We are not hearing very much of late regarding the Erime Minister of Austra lia, chief of a team of politicians of whom it is alleged that sometimes some of them tell the truth— by. accident. The follow ine scathine criticism of 'Australia's calamity' from an article in that high class journal, the 'Atheneum,' gives an idea of what sort of an estimate has .been formed in some influential quarters in England of the 'Duke' of Warwick. To quote:—: ? 'But the greatest enemies of the human race to-day, the greatest traitors to the cause of democracy in this country, and indeed the world over, are those who, their judgments having been warped by the war, misread its lessons, and urge the people of this and other countries along the road of materialism and mili tarism. Their only policy is to out Prussia Prussia, and to convert the world alternately into a feverish race for wealth and a bloody scramble. The most pro minent ...

THE COMING PEACE CONFERENCE. POSSIBILITIES AND PROSPECTS. AMERICAN PUBLICIST'S DOUBTS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 18 January 1919
THE COMING PEACE .., CONFERENCE. ^POSSIBILITIES AND PROSPECTS. AMERICAN PUBLICIST'S DOUBTS. Writing of 'The End of the War,' be fore that end was in. sight, Walter E. Weyl, an -American publicist, foresaw possibilities that have in no way been rendered less possible by what has since happened. 'A few months or years,' he said, 'will see their various Excellencies travailing by boat and train to some capital in Europe, prepared to settle the acrid con troversies of the war and decide in coun cil room and lobby the fate of the world. There may be all sorts and kinds and varieties of Excellencies^ 'For the most part, however, unless the democratic elements in the various na tions prevent it, these peace representa tives are likely to be of the approved dip lomatic type, the aged, bemedalled, chilly, narrow, and conservative Excellency, very gentlemanly, very astute, fundamentally stupid.

ITHE WORKERS AND THE EMPIRE ' !':' .' .' ..'?... . . no. i. ; .; By ADELA PANKHURST WALSH. ^ If we take the Capitalists' position first; it is a simple mater to see that the policy of Imperialism suits them fully. It is, indeed, -essential to a continuation of the Capitalist' system. .. President Wilson's '?'League ? of Nations' would, for this reason, be certain to develop into a su perior- Imperialistic autijoritj', in which the Imperial claims of the Emperors of Business -and Finance will be adjusted, and their power buttressed by an inter national army, provided by the working ? classes of all countries. Under the Capitalist, system, when profit is the aim of those who, being in possession of the means of life, control production, the organisation of agricul . ture and industry has been developed to a high , pitch. In spite of . wilful and care less waste and conservative methods the productive powers of, mankind have de veloped in a tnaryelloustway. . New lands have -.been disc...
