SOCIALISM IN AMERICA. "Looking Backward" Bellamy-on the Political Outlook. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 3 September 1892

SOCIALISM IN AMERICA. ? -^ 'Looking Backward' Bellamy. on the Political Outlook. In view of the recent labor troubles in America the following article by Edward Bellamy in the Xorth American Review will be read with interest : — Where is now that easy complacency over the social situation which so recently was the prevailing temper of our people ? Economic discussion and the debate of radical social solutions absorb the attention of the country and are the preponderating topics of serious conversations. Economic papers have the precedence in our periodicals, and even in our purely literary magazine they crowd the novel and the. romance. Indeed, tlife nov#l with a socio -logical motive now se,tsiirthe literary fashion, and a course 'in political . economy has become necessary to write 'a & successful love story. It is not so much the increased volume of economic discussion that marks the growth of Socialism as the fact that its tone is chiefly given by the adherents of the ne...

THE BROKEN HILL LOCK-OUT. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 3 September 1892

THE BEOKEN HILL LOCK-OUT1. The mine-owners have thrown open the mines, and exhort the misguided miners to return to work, and all will be forgiven. The' miners don't return worth a cent. A few miserable blacklegs have gone in, bub nob sufficient to keep up a respectable smoke in the chimneys, -b uuds for the assistance or the miners are coming in splendidty, and the Union co-operative stores arc the only ones doing any business. In all probability an effort will soon be made to get a number- of blacklegs in. If the women of the Barrier go for the ' free laborers' again, the Go vernment will be asked to send the military up ' in order to protect life and property' — that is, the mine-owners lives and property. The miners, of course, have no property, and the lives of the workers and their wives and daughters do not count for much in these ' freedom- to-starve' times. The fire low order will be given, and if the women don't stand aside—well they will be shot down we presume. Then the ...

SYDNEY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 3 September 1892

SYDNEY NOTES. Dear Hummer, — The rogues and wise men have again as sembled in Parliament, and the very credu lous have already begun to count on better times. Poor fools ! History has failed to- educate them. What unbounded faith they must have ? Parliaments, in the past, have ever been cumbersome and hurtful. And the best r;of modern Parliaments, that of New Zealand, is cursed by the interference of the Upper House, and while such iniquity lasts, legislation for the people is d — ned. Jersey's latest speech contained no reference to the Broken Hill strike. Which ib about what the workers may expect from the ' ever bleeding' Barton and renegade, Sir George Richard. I happened to hear a more or less; public man at a lecture the other week kind of round on the women workers of Broken Hill for the part they are taking in the strike. He said that he did not believe in praising the women for their action. To my mind, they deserve all the praise they get ; but the men should be rounded on...

NOTICE TO ADVERTISERS. Anyone who wants to do honest business can advertise in the ' ' Hummer. ' ' We have no room for the greedy speculator or mono polist, the quack or the schemer. No paper can run straight for the people and hit every fraud and lie that exists which has to depend upon the favor of its adver tisers ; and the ' ' Hummer' means to be in the fore-front of the Labor Movement while it intends to run* honest till it runs , down. For these reasons we cringe to no one for advertisements ; but all the same we ask Unionists to support their own paper by patronising those who advertise in it.

A WORD TO THE FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 3 September 1892

A WORD TO THE FARMERS ' Somersault' Dibbs told his constituents last year that, he did not believe in any other form of taxation than that which could be im posed ' throiigh, the stomach and the back.' He also objected to a land value tax because it would be an additional burden on the far mers. As showing how much our titled Premier knows about the matter, we reprint the fbllowi \.g from an exchange : — *' The average burden imposed- by Customs duties amounts to £20 per annum for a family of five. Under a tax of threepence in the pound on unimproved land values this could be entirely .douy, av/ay with.

SMOKE HO! [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 3 September 1892

SMOKE HO It is rumoured that Bob Hobbs, of Woorooma fame, has died in the Balranald hospital. 'W. Lane started out on his organ izing tour in connection with the New Aus tralia Co-operative Scheme on August 23rd when he visited Hughenden, from which place he intends to work his way south. When gents.(?) fall out honest men are likely to' get their own. Billy Crick (self-styled Labor member) and Jack Norton, ? of Truth newspaper have dissolved. Crick calls Norton a damn scoundrel, a villain, etc., and swears if ever he (Crick) can get Norton away in a quiet place he'll smash him.' Seems awfully like the pot calling the kettle black. The manager at Clare engaged a married couple named Strange in Sydney to work on the station. They went up by train to Hay, but refused to walk from there to Clare. A summons before the Hay magistrates resulted in Strange being sentenced to one month's imprisonment. The Full Court has, however, quashed the con viction, and Strange is proceeding against th...

Re the Row Over Sending the £1 Deposit for Pens. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 3 September 1892

Be the Bow Over Sending the £1 Deposit for Fens. Deab Htjmmeb, — This act of indiscretion has done more harm to our cause than most members are aware of, inasmuch as it shows Whitely King's push how easy it is to shake the unanimity of our members in a time of depression and struggle for existence. Unitv of action, if not of thought, is the very basis on which the security of our union depends. Therefore, I suggest that loyal members will do their best to enforce a fine on all members for the above offence, the money to go to the Broken Hill Strike Fund. It has been said by some members that they were advised to send the £1 by the officer in charge of Gonlburn Branch. If that is the case that functionary knows nothing of the principles of true unionism, and,on the production of the necessary proofs, should be made responsible for grossly mis leading the members in his branch. Trusting you will find space for the above, I remain, yours in unity, C. M'Crttddbn. August 25, 1892.

SHEARING ITEMS Advices from all parts of the Eive rina give glowing accounts of the recent; rainfall. J. R.

A number of the 'unemployed' took up their quarters near the woolshed at Yarrabee the other day.' They refused to take any notice of the boss, who requested them to leave. The Narandera police were sent for. The men were dispersed, the police have returned to Narandera, and quiet is again restored. Thus is the glorious and good old 'move on' clause enforced, and those who have no abiding place in wide Australia must travel on footsore and weary. Serve thorn right !
