THE FLYING SWAGMEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 4 August 1910

THE FLYING SWAGMEN. It is alleged that on April 13, Western swagmen voted 20 times each for certain Labor candidates. O hoary-headed Swagrnen — Old vet'rans of the track! O grim brigade of bagmen That haunt' the roads Out Back! Your fame has spread from Widgee Beyond the far Paroo; And from the Murrumbidgee' Come tales concerning you. You hold the lonely outposts For Labor, and it's crook To hear the yarns about you That drift to Muswellbrook! 'Tis said that you — grey Swagmen — (From Riverina's climes) Last 'lection voted Labor, Each one, a score of times! I know the polling places Are miles apart, also I've witness'd bagmen's races Where slow men raced the slow; And if at places twenty You called, you must 'a' 'flew '; So bagmen — hoary Swagmen — I raise my hat to you! I plainly see, in fancy, The Swagmen on the ' go ' Upon the tracks, where Clancy Went drovin' long ago. They voted first at Riley's ' Old Budgeree ' Hotel; And thence they sped instanter To vote- at 'Deadman's Yell....

LAY OF THE LAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 4 August 1910

LAY OF THE LAND. During the first six months of this year ' 1000 square miles of prickly pear land have been taken up for settlement in Queensland. Most of the land has been taken up on the frontage of the prickly pear infested territory. # * # A number of cattle in the Yingerba^ district, Roma, Queensland, have died as a result of poisoning, and it is believed to be due to cyaniding by 'possumers.

An endeavor is being made by the Trades Hall Council executive to bring the' Shop Assistants' Federation and the Grocers, Tea, and Dairy Produce Em ployees' Association together. The latter body was at one. time affiliated with -the Trades Hall Council, but some three years agq.it got. into, financial, difficulties.

MR. MURRAY AND THE WHITE WORKERS. REPRESENTATION ON WAGES BOARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 4 August 1910

MR. MUREAY AND THE WHITE WORKERS. REPRESENTATION ON WAGES BOARD. ' : Premier Murray, as Minister for Labor, was to have received a deputation, from the Whiteworkers' Union . last . week in protest against the constitution of the wages board. But he was too busy. . The deputation . wanted to have a few plain wprds with him. He had appointed three workers' representatives on the wages board .who were considered by the union to' be unsuitable. A petition had been prepared protesting against these persons' names being gazetted, and the Union were under the impression that it had to be lodged ' by ' a certain date, whereas it had to be put in 'before' a certain date. Mi1. Murray would not then countenance the petition, hence the deputation. There were present- — Mr. G. Dupree (vicepresi dent of the Trades Hall Council), Mr. J. Munn (secretary), Mrs. Powell, and Mrs. Felstead. They saw the acting inspector of factories (Mr. N. Stephens), who pro mised to see what could be done to give the...

Several grievances of engine-men on the railways were considered at the annual meeting of the grand council of the Vic torian division of the Locomotive Engine drivers, Firemen, and Cleaners' Associa tion, which concluded its sittings in Mel bo.urne a few days ago. Mr.' C. Kane, the president, occupied the chair. A large number of . calls for subscrip tions are made from time to time on mem bers of the association for the relief of others who are disabled, and consideration was given to the -adoption of some scheme that would obviate the necessity of per sonal individual appeals. It was generally thought that .c-with some. .slight amend ments the. practice adopted in West Aus tralia might be resorted to. This pro vides for the deduction of a certain sum from wages, which is put to , a common fund.- A committee was appointed to go into the question, and report at the next meeting of the council. Complaint was made that the depart ment ...

NORTHERN MINERS' BOARD. MR. PATERSON NOT TO BE REMOVED. He Threatens to Make Revelations. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 4 August 1910

NORTHERN MINERS' BOARD. MR. PATERSON NOT TO BE REMOVED. He Threatens to Make Revelations. As was expected from the tenor of1 his remarks when the matter first came be fore him, Judge Heydon refused the ap plication of the Colliery Employees' Federation for the removal of Mr. Pater son from the Newcastle Collieries Wages Board. In dealing with the events lead ing up to the appointment of Mr.' Pater son, his Honor said that a member of a Board was a judicial and independent officer, and the dismissal of any judicial functionary was very serious. Be cause a class he represented had lost con fidence in him, it was, in his opinion, no reason why he should be dismissed. After reconsideration of affidavits and argu ments, he had concluded that no suf ficient case had been made out to justify him in investigating Mr. Paterson's con duct to ascertain whether he had been guilty of misconduct and prevarication. 'Without saying,', continued Judge Heydon, ' that . in no case would I hold such an...

VICTORIAN LABOR ITEMS. The new rules of the Butchers' Em ployees' Federation have been passed by the Federal Registrar (Mr. A. M. Stewart). Mr. C. H. Andersen, the secretary, is hav ing 10,000 copies printed. The Queens land branch has ordered 3000 of these. After some pretty hard fighting on the part of the employers on the Ham and Bacon Trade Wages Board, the minimum wage of £2/5/ a week for 48 hours' work has been fixed for unskilled bacon work ers. This is a considerable improvement on the wage paid in some establishments. Under the broadened constitution of the Electrical Trades Union, all electrical workers may now become members. An organizing meeting of those outside the Union was held last week, when 30 car boners, or lamp trimmers, decided to join. Following on the increase. of wages to bricklayers in Geelong, bringing them into line with those in Melbourne and Bendigo, the builders' laborers have given the Master Builders' Association notice that they must be paid the Mel...
