Z_J^oue Jyf r jeas. Of the 13,000,000 workers in the United Kingdom oaiy about 2,OUU,000 have jet managed to combine to better their condi tion. These workers annually produce wealth amounting to €1,350,000,000. Out of this the landlords take as rent £220,000,000, Of the JaaUnce only £500,000,000 gets to the workers, £350,000,1*00 more being tweattd by the profit-mongers in various ways. The non ? workers altogether get about £ar»o,ooo,ooo. Sib John Ooust doesn't seem to agree with General Booth.

LABOUR IN POLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 9 January 1892
LABOUR IN POLITICS. The Boxing Day ' Labour in Politics ' demonstration at Brisbane was not a great success. It is very clear that holiday making days are not a pond time to talk politics in. Some 600 -members of the various Labour political or ? ganisations — marched jL4Gwh -Queen-street, ' with bands and banners and pageants, in cluding a funeral celebrating 'Slippery Sam's' political death, which latter has strangely roused, the wrath of mayor, corpora tion and Government, __who must all be pretty thin-skinned. Another show was the big loaf M'll wraifli promised and the soup-kitchen kettle the workers have got. Some 3000 entered the Exhibition grounds _ where sports, side shows and dancing— no intoxicant sold anywhere and all drinks 3d. — made Iht* time fly till 4, when Messrs. Trenwith, Rae and Fitzgerald, Southern - MM.L.A., orated toah enthusiastic crowd in vllt) ujjcii air, — ? Two successful Labour meetings -have been held since Christmas at the Centennial Hall, Brisbane. On...

- ^Mi EDITORIAL Mi. One would imagine that after the manifest .intention of the Q.S.U. and Q.L.U. annual .meetings to avoid conflict with the pastora lists, some little change of front would be shown by the latter also. Instead of this, a ggross misstatement has been circulated to ^ |he i effect that shearers' camps are being formed oh the Peak Downs with the inten -tron of preventing by force the emnlovment or free labourers' and of renewing the violence 'which it is alleged -was charac teristic, of last year's industrial -struggle.

LOWELL'S "HUNGER AND COLD." [The cablegrams announce that the peasants in &nbsp; the famine stricken districts of Russia are pillag- ing in armed band' and that the Government is unable to suppress the starving freebooters. James Russell Lowell's famous poem is particularly apropos of this state of affairs.

In conjunction with the preparation of a state ment and balance-sheet for presentation to those societies who during the Pyrmont Laundry strike, and since have so nobly assisted their Sisters in toil and revolt, I deem it my duty to return thanks also to many members of other trade unions, to thn rmhfin nnri tn on I- RvmnkthiaerK emiArallv for 'tEe moral and pepuniary support tendered on behalf of the laundresses of this city, , I avail myself of the opportunity to say that the direct result of the Pyrmont strike has been the putting into practical example of the- pure co operative principle with unqualified success.
