THE IMPENDING BY-ELECTION IN PETERSHAM. To the Editor, "Labor News." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 18 January 1919

THE IMPENDING BY-ELECTION IN PETERSHAM. To the Editor, 'Labor News.' Dear Sir, . Many charges have been levelled against ie Nationalist party by its opponents, Mid also by its adherents, insincerity, and want of faith -being the defects for 'which they are alleged to' toe remarkable. There is now, however, an opportunity for the -Nationalist pai-ty to show that they are not unmindful of the interests of ' the people. ?.!??? Briefly, the position is the State roll, upon which the Petersham by-election will be fought, was- compiled early in 1917. The police are now collecting the roll for the new re-distribution scheme. Peter sham is only a pocket borough, and the police will finish' their work in the next day or two, if it has not ajready been com. pleted. It should be quite possible for the Elec toral Office to compile a complete Supple mental Roll from the work of the police, It may mean a little trouble; it may fmean k slight departure from ordinary redttape .methods. A special Re...

"RECONSTRUCTION"—THAT BLESSED WORD. HOW IT CAN BE DONE. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 25 January 1919

WORD. 1 '?'I HOW IT CAN BE DONE. .. It is difficult these days to {tick up a magazine, or a newspaper, without see ing' a headline in large type wherein the word reconstruction does not appear. Members of Boards of Trade and Manu facturers' Association are freely quoted on this great problem of recreating so ciety, and the clergy are not far behind with their offering towards the solution Df the problem that is taxing the minds 3f men and women that have any ideas as to the way the world is travelling. We have seen in the press during the last week or two where the general manu facturing interests are very anxious for some evidence of a successful marketing of the particular product which they are interested in. Those interested in the building trades are also seeking a re vival of activities in the erection of build ings, and it would appear that the lum bering interests and those interested in the building, trades are agreed on the necessity of building homes for working men.

The Perfected Man. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 25 January 1919

The Perfected Man. .A Great Sculptor made a beautiful Image in clay. But -when it was finished Necessity pressed upon it and Toil beat it down. Famine, pinched it and Tyranny hammered it, and Monopoly cast it out from the place which the Sculptor had ordained for it. It lay in the kennel, rejected and un clean. Theology passed by «n the other side and said: 'See how depraved it is— *t is fit only to be cast into the lire.' But Love lifted the linage up and wept over it And as her tears fell upon the day It softened in hw arms, »o -that the smoothes oat the bruises with her hands. Then Justice set it again in its pl^pe, and men said: 'Behold, It was made in the {mag* c£ ^Gttfi*' ;,,,., ; :.

Redemption. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 25 January 1919

Redemption. God sat upon His time -Ignoring throne. . . . Blown from the void, a myriad roar of prayer Hurled like vultures' bodies through the air. Prom far forgotten worlds, whose watch fires shone Dimly from thousand-century-distant zone Rose the deep wail of universal Care. ... The kneeling angels trembled in despair And their struck harps immingled in the moan. One after one the reeling flames expired; Worlds dropped, suns flared a final in long; J The shriek of prayer grew thin and high. .... His head God bowed; all Heaven rocked dizzily, time-tired. —Dim as a, star at noon.- a Rebel's song flamed through the roar— :'The worlds shall live!' -God said. — ErneBt J. Hopkins.

Russia from Within. WHAT AN EYE-WITNESS SAYS., [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 25 January 1919

Russia from Within. WHAT AN EYE-WITNESS SAYS. , Almost every day our -paid press sup plies us with a list of 'atrocities' in Rus sia, so much so that we are at times almost persuaded Into believing that Petrograd and Moscow are by no means healthy locali ties to visit. It is refreshing, however, to note that recent visitors to Russia on their 'return do not bear testimony to any of the awful 'atrocities' which find a ready space in our paid press. Mr. I. Fineburg, a member of the British Socialist Party, visited Russia some five or six months ago,- and on his return to England gave his impressions of Russia after nine months of Soviet rule. He says : 'Preconceived notions of the appearance of a great city during a revolution, to gether with the lurid tales of English press correspondents, increased one's as tonishment on entering Petrograd. The town presented a strikingly normal ap pearance. At the station tried guards are at the entrances and exits. Outside there is little on the s...

THE HYPOCRISY OF THE PROFITEERS. SHOUTING "PATRIOTISM" AND ROBBING THE PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 25 January 1919

THE HYPOClBY OF THE PROFITEERS. SHOUTING 'PATRIOTISM1? AND ROBBING THE PEOPLE. For the past four years and a half the press and pulpit, the .teacher and preacher, the picture and school house, have given, the same message, prayed the same prayer, and hoped the same hope, longed and waited for the day of Allied Victory. The long wished for day is here, the world of the Allied nations is de lirious with joy; victory is written large in letters of blood and sorrow. Millions of men, innocent of -wrongdoing, just entering man's estate, not particularly anxious to' kill or be killed, have poured out their lives on foreign soil to 'crush autocracy,' militarism, and 'the power of conquest,' and to 'liberate enslaved peoples.' Noble and worthy ideals sacred to all mankind, but the sole possession of no particular nation or people. This, war, one of the crudest, bloodiest, and most diabolical in the history of mankind, has left the Allies triumphant. The victory gained, said one of our papers...

THOUGHTS ON DEMOCRACY. VIII. NATIONALISM VERSUS INTERNATIONALISM. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 25 January 1919

THOUGtrrS ON DEMOCRACY. ? ? . ... ??'? ? vin. ' ?. ? %- . ' - .. H ? ; ? NATIONALISM VERSUS INTERNATIONALISM. The 18th century may have pushed cosmopolitanism too far. The 19th century reacted with equal exaggeration to nationalism, and the 20th century is an era eT NATIONALISM RUN MAD.— Zan&wiU. This great struggle between the forces of democracy and those of the capitalist oligarchy will not be permitted to appear 80. definite in its outlines as it is here V present^. For if the people could really get to feel and understand how much iB at stake, such feeling and understanding ?would vastly strengthen that subtle and imponderable element, the conscious will to. victory. An accurate instinct of class eelf-defenee ?will, therefore, lead the re actionists to do all that is possible to obscure the issue, and in particular ; 'to pretend that they are not fighting against democracy or for the defence of class power and privilege. Their most conr ecious tactics, have been long fo...

The Spartakus Policy. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 25 January 1919

The Spartakus Policy. The Berlin correspondent of the 'Daily Express' sums up the Spartakus' policy e«s follows:— 'To carry on tne class'*struggle against the bourgeoisie f.until,.government by and for the working class is established. . 'The class struggle must be carried on until a proletariat Government has been established everywhere in the world. 'The immediate aim is to seize all food, disarm the police and soldiers, except the proletariat soldiers, and replace the old administration l-y supporters of the pro letariat; also to establish a tribunal to try those guilty of causing the war, in oludi^g the sx-Kaiser and. the ex-Crown Prince, General Ludendorff, General Hin denburg, .Admiral von Tirpitz, and all counter-revolutionaries.

U.S.A. and Prohibition. PROBABILITIES AND PREMATURE : CONCLUSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 25 January 1919

U.S.A. and Prohibition. PROBABILITIES AND PREMATURE : CONCLUSIONS. I X.: According to a report regarding life! on the troopship' Somerset, recently ar-i rived at Melbourne, a soldier on one occa-! 6ion paid £12 for eight bottles of beer, and on another occasion a bottle of liquor! was bought for 30/-. Link up that statement with the fact that U.S.A. has now declared, by a ma-i jority of States, for total prohibition, and a glimmering is gained of what may Hap-i pen when thirst like unto that of the' Somerset soldiers rages throughout the great Union. Partisans and prophets of the Trade to New South Wales already predict vast consumption of methylated spirits in U.S.A., and practically uncontrollable sale of sly and very bad grog. ' Well, we'll see, or hear. If breaches of ? . ? the Prohibition statute are. put down by; ~ imprisonment long- and hard, without thiaj option, the bootleggers, moonshiners, and: dope-fiends may at last find themselves up against something too hot for them....

Just as the Labor Movement is under'* mined, and its 'solidarity' destroyed, po- litically and industrially, by sectional fad4 dists, who, while they agree on broaS principles, quarrel unceasingly as toj methods, so it would appear the- same' deadly principles are to be applied to th$! press operations of the Movement.

THE ONE BIG UNION AND THE LABOR DAILY. SUGGESTIONS OF CORRESPONDENT. HOW TO RAISE £200,000. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 25 January 1919

THE ONE BIG UNION AND THE M LA6GR DAILY. SUGGESTIONS OF CORRESPONDENT. HOW TO RAISE £200,000. 'Barb' writes:— The One Big Union Conference plunges solidly for the amalgamation of all craft unions -into one industrial organisation. Why? Because the delegates realise that the divided wortfcer cannot make much headway. The fact is published, to' the world at large through the medium of a daily capi talistic newspaper! Why? Because^ even advanced thinkers, such as delegates to such an important con ference as the Workers' Industrial Coun cil ought to be, have yet failed to realise that the tnoat powerful vehicle of educat ing and organising the worker is a Labor, daily newspaper. According to the scheme for the O.B.U., adopted by the New South Wales Union Congress in August last, it is stated that there are 237,714 registered trade unionists in this State!' Yet the Labor Movement still lacks its daily. Resolutions affirming the class war be tween workers and the employers are cor rect, ...

SOLDIERS AND UNEMPLOYMENT.

Reasons against the job remain obvious - and abundant, and no plausible ?words can conjure away their validity. ,The fact that Pearce, in commandeering berths aboard the Marathon 'for himself, liis family,' and his staff, causing the can cellation of several passages previously Jbooked by others, has excited just indig ffijL. nation.
