OUR SISTERS' COLUMN. THE WARS OF THE ROSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 3 September 1892

OUR SISTERS' COLUMN. THE WARS OF THE ROSES. Dear Hummer, . , In reply to Miss Scott, Secretary of the 'Womanhood Suffrage League, allow me to state that Mrs English is president of the .-Summer Hill Branch of the W.S.L., and hold ing suc:i a prominent position surely her views must be shared by a majority of the body who elect her, or if not there is some thing wrong in her election to such office, as her opinions should be representative of the general body. Many other members have expressed the very same views as Mrs ^English in regard to woman's work, there fore plainly showing they are not in touch ?with the people, and also that they know very little about them. Whilst saying this I have not the slightest doubt whatever that ?many — let me h@pe the majoritj' — areearnest, honest women who do know and have made ?a study of the mass woman and her require ments. Mrs Jackson is, I am certain, a credit to lier sex — a real womanly woman, whom I shall be very happy to meet. Mrs Haaci...

HENRY GEORGE ON COMPETITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 3 September 1892

HENRY GEORGE ON COMPETI TION. Dear Hummer, Our socialist friends seem to fall into some great blunders when they advocate doing away with . competition as a cure for monopoly. They admit that land monopoly is equally wrong, and yet in their speeches and letters to the Press we find them stating that competition is the cause of the nreafinf, unjust social conditions. I should think the true way to cure monopoly is by competition. They say further that no individual should own ^ Property' altogether. 'From each according to his capacity. To each accord ing to his needs.' This last seems to me that each should be guaranteed sufficient 'pro- perty' to supply his needs, and an admission thc\,t individual ownership of ' property' is right. The question is which is the true way to secure to individuals sufficient ' property' to supply his needs. Let us_ take Larry's digger, who unearthed the diamond. Sup posing the digger had free access to land, and the diamond, before it was unearthed, i...

ALAS FOR CIVILIZATION! [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 3 September 1892

V ALAS F0$ CIVILIZATION ) A sweet pensive face and its owner in V- mourning tripped to the workshop in the - city. ;Svery morning those eyes rose timidly to scan the crowd passing them. Only a we rk girl! Her worn gloves and needle pricked fingers held a paper of thin cut bread and butter. Butter is dear ; sometimes the little paper contained dry bread that sufficed for her day's need. Businessmen smirked at her. carriages passed her, but she pushed onward until a courteous lad with long strides walked beside her. They had known each other in this way for some time. But the city is reached at last, and before parting he begs her to meet him that night, not as a lover asks, but as a man asserting his right to protect her in the hour of her trouble. And they met. ?'???;[ II. .The roll and din of, the street is heard, but the incessant tramp has ceased.

COLOMBO PLAINS, TIRANA. ? ^ ? August 26, 1892. Deae Working Bee, — At a station, not 16,000 miles from Urana, two alleged wool-pressers, making for Narrow Narrow, and certainly from Victoria (probably free -passers), have engaged them selves at 7s 6d per week to cut scrub, and 'if you work well I might give you another half crown.' Their mate, a new chum, flatly . refused, but then he was a man, and a soldier. Yours, N. S. WALER.

HAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 3 September 1892

HAY. Dear Hummee, Since last writing we have had a splended fall of rain. The grass is coming on apace ; but, unfortunately, the caterpillar plague has made an appearance, the gronnd in some places being completely covered with them. Ulonga, the last big shed in ?' this district,' made a start. General laborers struck for 25s per week. They state they had just about won when five shearers signed for £1. If true, it's not a square deal. Anyhow, you'll hear more about it next week. Garwong shearers to Barrier Strike £17 18s 6d, G.L.U. £6 15s 6d, Willurah £4 6d. Other lists will be in this week. R.S.

GOONDOOBLUIE. August, 18. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 3 September 1892

GOONDOOBLTJIE-. Ausrust, 18. Dear Hummer, We started shearing here on the 7 th of this month. About 50 men too many when the roll was called. Rouseabouts signed for 25/-. Not many Union men among them, but all except one, whose name is WILLIAM HALLWARD, have joined since. I would like to see it in print. [We print it in capital style. — Ed.] He would not give anything to the Broken Hill miners or take a certificate of G.L.U. We made a very good collection here, £27 11s, all hands, except the individual abovenamed, giving something. * It is not the custom here for the manager to stop 3d per week out of the men's wages. Happy to say nothing like that done here. It is on the A. P. Company's stations where that is practised — at Noondoo, Yarranbah, and several others belonging to the same push. Lots of men on the war path up this way stopping here. They come in droves every night. Every shed in this part over crowded at roll call. OLD BOB. Yours in Unity,

BEFORE THE STORM. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 10 September 1892

BEFORE THE STORM. [By Ivanoff.] The skies are blue, the sun is bright, and beauty reigns supreme ; The cloudis arc fleecy, grey and white, the sunrise like a dream. Words could not deck, or canvas hold, a picture half so fair, But list awhile — a song, not joy, but sadness - fills the air. Oh, God ! I hear the groans of men, the ana-uish of their orv Proclaims that Want is prowling round, and Hunger is hard by. I walked the street, I saw a face where Hunger left its seal. I further roamed and saw a crowd, their ? forms the same reveal. \ I saw big windows rich Avith food, and, will I tell it you ? .?'?'??? I felt inclined to lead that mob to go the doorAvay through. And then the bitter knowledge came — these men know not their, worth ; They sprung like Aveeds on rankest soil, and wrong proclaimed their birth. Their 'manhood crushed, their hopes de . stroyed— oh ! ^vhat the cruel cause ? 'Twas man's injustice unto man, the cursed system's laws. The system that denied them work, thoug...

MORE TROUBLES OF A REP. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 10 September 1892

MORE TROUBLES OF A REP. W. J. Wilson, the Rep. at North Yanco,. * sends to Wagga office for tickets for about one-third of the members of that shed. This is not good enough by a long way, and it is. to be hoped that the North Yanco men will, try and emulate those at other sheds who are paying up to a man. The unfortunate Rep. is evidently very, tired for he says i 'The amount I now send you is the last that I hope I will ever collect as a shed rep It is the first time in my life I ever held such a high office in a shed, and I will take all sorts of care it will never occur again.' One can't help feeling sorry for this chap, but seeing that he has religiously deducted 10 per cent, on contributions, which, by the way, is not allowed in Wagga Blanch, he ought to just wake them up to a better time. Now we know there are some good men at North Yanco, and, despite the dispair of the Rep. , we hope to hear a better account later on.

THE STRAIGHT WIRE. (To the Editor of the Hummer.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 10 September 1892

THE STRAIGHT WIRE. (To the Editor of the Hummer.) Sir, — Under above heading appeared a letter from D. Cameron,. Louth, published in your issue' of 20th inst.., and as The Hummer is acknowleged to v be a , representative paper of the A.S.U., I claim the privelege to take exception to some of tlie views expressed in that letter. In penning this, I am setting myself a task anything but congenial to my taste, but having read ' the straight wire,' it appears to me . your correspondent's wire is strained on very crooked lines. In Jus iirs b paragraph, lie says : ' HJvery worker who thinks for a moment must come to the conclusion that there is no possible chance to survive against the combined forces of Capitalism without the complete solidarity of Labor, which can only be brought about by each worker becoming thoroughly alive, to his own interests.' He advises solidarity of Labor, and straightway inserts a wedge to split Labor more than it would otherwise be. Passing over his re-, marks ...

NOTES BY THE WAY , By De Warre. Some one, I don't know who, has said 'the law is an ass,' and I. fancy the same truism will apply to the Government. What strikes me as one of the most ' charming' features of the workers is their utter blindness and crass stupidity.'

OUR SISTERS' COLUMN. Dear Hummer, — It just struck me you. might forget such a person ever existed if I did not write you again, so here goes. Town^ and country should hold communication with each other —mutual benefit, and that sort of thing, you know. I suppose you know Surry Hills. . Well, 'there is a widow, with four or five children, re siding- there. They take in washing, and do up shirts, and try as hard as possible to live respectable. But sickness would come.

FEDERATION OF LABOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 10 September 1892

FEDERATION OF LABOR. - It is not necessarv to enter into a lengthy treatise on the merits of a complete system of organization and of education in all labor linatters. We all recognize that it is only the lack of these two essentials which hamper and delays the progress .Ave would desire to make towards a complete emancipation of all Avorkers. The absolute necessity of- some central executive to guide and direct large labor movements Avas never more apparent than during the great sirike of 1890, and it is to the lessons learnt then, the experience so dearly bought, that Ave are indebted for these proposals to federate the whole of the Labor Unions of Australia. We have learned that so long as a single man remains untaught and ignorant of the true meaning, the true aims and intentions of Unionism, so long as the monopolists can divide the Avorkers of the country into factions one against the other, so long and no longer will they be enabled to hold on to their ill-gotten gains, and c...
