LABOR AND POLITICS IN MAORILAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 10 September 1892
LABOR AND POLITICS IN MAORILAND. [By Arthur Rae.] Some few weeks ago I received a cable message from Mr R. Sleath, Secretary of the Barrier Miners, asking me to try and raise funds for the assistance of the Broken Hill strikers. I was in another part of the colony when the telegram arrived in Christchurch, but immediately on receipt thereof I com municated with the Trades and Labor Councils of Auckland, Wellington, Christ church, and Dunedin, urging upon them the necessity of defending this stronghold of Australian Unionism against the attacks of the ' Freedom of Contract' fiend. I have received replies 'from. Wellington and Dunedin, the former stating that the request will be at once laid before all afiiliated societies, while .the latter has merely acknowledged receipt of my letter, promising to advise further after next Council meeting. Auckland and Christchurch have not ? vet . replied. ? ' . . . ; , ' \ .?While on this topic I may say that Trades Unionism in New Zealand is at a...
SMOKE HO! [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 10 September 1892
SMOKE HO ! The Sydney Sewerage Miners Union has been merged into the G.L.U. Knights of Labor Assembly started at Ballarat (Vic.) last week. Name — ' ' Eureka Home. ' In N.S.W. Parliament Reid pro mises to move a vote of censure on the Ministry, but hesitates before attacking- them in the absence of the Premier. Meantime, Parkes shakes his riiane, arid roars at Reid to go on with the jjicnic. Melbourne iron trades dispute settled by arbitration. Employers wanted to terminate the agreement entered into Oct., 1891. Deakin, M.P.,\decreed that the agree ment should not terminate until November next. Boyd, the .first squatter to take up land in the Dehiliquin , Riyerine district, had a hankering for cheap and reliable labor. He went over to the islands on a recruiting expedition, but, alas, the kanakas — who also had a hankering — ate him. This was in the fifties. Maoriland Minister for 'Works M'Kenzie has afforded Murrumbidgee Rae every assistance in obtaining information respecting vill...
THE TROUBLES OF A REP. (To the Editor of the Hummer.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 10 September 1892
THE TROUBLES OE A REP ? ? (To the Editor of - the Hummer.) ; Sir, — Shearing operations commenced at Bringagee on August 6, and in accordance with the usual custom a representative was appointed to look after the interests of the Shearers Union and several other matters of small importance. Unfortunately (for 'tis a thankless office) I was appointed rep., and in due course received from the Hay agent a . . bundle of official documents, together with a Un hook of instructions setting forth the duties- - of a ' Rep.,' and a certain line of procedure to be observed, bo lar, so good., llie theory ? ; is magnificent ; but he whose task.it is to transfer the theory into practice sometimes has a hard lot. Well, I commenced my ' duties by requesting members in tones of dulcet sweetness to renew their tickets, and . - , hinting at the.- same time that I would b& approachable amongst a pile of parched br^; ^ , official documents in the southern corner of „ the hut from 10 a.m. to 3 p....
SHEARING ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 10 September 1892
SHEARING ITEMS Seventy men over at the roll call at. Mercadool, and 200 more passed the shed the first week of commencing. Queensland Bush- workers are stick ing to the. Barrier men splendedly. Queens land doesn't forget a good turn. The miners were not backward during the bush strike. Many Shed Reps, in Wagga Branch write regretting their inability to collect ' ? 1. £ ? j.i t- ? ? _ ? ? ' ? ? , ,i uiuuji lur in -parri^r uiiijers owing zo tne continued wet weather. They promise to help all they know how when the weather clears. Tooralie knocked off: on Friday through inability to bring their sheep in to the shed. The men report that thousands of dead sheep are lying about the yards and woolshed paddock. There are 160,000 sheep still unshorn on the run, and* the manager says, that it will be impossible to re-commence shearing except a heavy fall of rain comes. There is a report current that Dun lop will be compelled to follow suit unless the rain comes quickly. The men at this statio...
THE BARRIER LOCK-OUT. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 17 September 1892
THE BARRIER LOCKOUT I am in receipt of some scores of letters re the Barrier lock-out. Some of our correspondents suggest arbitra tion and conciliation, others Govern mental interference, others nation alization of the mines, others a thump ing tax on the unimproved value of mineral and other lands. Others again talk Pittsburg and dynamite, and others suggest a general strike of air (/lio ?:-.*;?» vi-feei's- in ???—Australia-- .. -.until ... things are settled. We cannot print all these letters, but those -who sug gest arbitration and conciliation I would remind that everything in that line has been already tried, but the directors flatly refuse to arbitrate. The Government answer the request for Parliamentary intervention by sending up a few hundred police ' to preserve law and order ' and the military are getting the Gatlings ready. The Labor Party in Parliament are powerless owing to the split in their ranks, and a tax on land values cannot be secured because half the alleged dem...

SHEARING ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 17 September 1892
SHEARING ITEMS. Buckingbong Shearers resolve : — ' That the £1 deposit for shearing pens be not paid in future, but if any guarantee is required certificates be forwarded.' G.L.U. men at Wunnamurra sug gest that a black list of those who won't join be published in the Hummer. That is a a last resort, and it is to be hoped there will be no occasion for such extreme measures. Surely men will not allow capitalism to squeeze them harder than at present when they cln emancipate themselves so easily by standing to their mates. The station owner, boss of the board, and Mat Kelly, shearer, at Butherwah write contradicting the statement made by W. Connors, in a late Hummer, to the effect that Kelly got his pen in anything but a square manner. The owner says Kelly never wrote him at allj Kelly says he did not know of a place being Ikept for him, and the manager avers that Kelly got his pen in a straight forward manner and that W. Connors is all wrong. Sorry we can't publish our corres pondent...
LABOR AND POLITICS IN MAORI LAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 17 September 1892
LABOR AND POLITICS IN MAORI LAND. [By Aethub Rae.] Labor Minister W. P. Reeves ran his Workmen's Lien Bill through Committee in nine minutes the other day. I will give a brief digest of this bill in my next. An amendment of the Factories Act lias passed its second reading on the voices. It gives greater powers to inspectors to prevent sweating and the employment of women and girls in unhealthy dens. Conservatives said it went to far ; but Labor Member Buick said it didn't go far enough as it did not provide for the inspection of shearers' and station huts. Buick was quite right. A Weekly Half-holiday Bill has been passed through the Lower Chamber. It provides for a half1' .holiday for all shop employees at least once a week, but leaves every city or municipality to fix the day most convenient within their .respective boundaries. The Land for Settle ment Bill passed its second reading by 45 votes for to 8 against. It provides for the purchase by the government of private estates, sub...

ANTS IN THE BILLY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 17 September 1892
ANTS IN THE BILLY We see the Central Australian, the Willis-owned Boju*ke_jcajp^_has spvoriil.f-;«io. — ~Trs?reTreTi~nrat the printing of the local branches of the Shearers' and Laborers' Unions is being done at a scab office. This is to injure the Bourke Union officers for political opposition to ' 'Willisism.' The fact that the work is being1 done at this office gives us the more gratification in denying* their assertions. Its a pity the writers of the letters to the Central Australian, who are so persis tent in their abuse of the Bourke Union offi cials would not publish their names. It wouldn't look well though for it to be gene rally known that the authors are made up of an Afghan camel agent and a hired literary assassin and champion mud-slinger, -who is openly accused of having betrayed both the Labor Parti/ and the National Ass. The workers should simply ignore such men as these, who, under shelter of a nom de plume, belch forth the columns of abuse to which they have not th...
A TERRIBLE TALE. More About the Great American Strikes. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 17 September 1892
A TERRIBLE TALE More About the Great American Strikes. By Alaeic in the Worker. The first scene of the first act of the drama known as ' Caesar's Column,' has been played in America. I have already de scribed the battle at Carnegie's works, and more recent mails prove that the description falls short of the stern reality. As the barges containing1 the Pinkerton thugs lay in the river, unable to get along-side the wharf, they were subjected to the most merciless f usilade probably ever recorded in the annals of his tory. It rnav be premised that these barges had been built for the occasion and roofed in with thick plates of solid steel. They were fitted with breech -loading' cannon calculated to maintain ' law and order ' at any cost. The strikers had two cannon, situated on opposite sides of the river, throwing projec tiles 101b weight. These were fired every minute, but the shot rebounded harmlessly from the armoured decks and sides of the barges. Then long* pipes were attached to ...
A CORRECTION. TO THE MEMBERS OF THE A.S.U. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 17 September 1892
A CORRECTION To tits Members of the A.S.U. In the reports of last Annual Conference a memo, was published with reference to Mr. Mooney's balance-sheet. Through ajmisunder standing with the printer the memo, in question was somewhat wrongly worded, inasmuch as it -would appear that no balance-sheet what ever had been received from Mr. Mooney. Such, however, is not the case. Mr. Moonev did supply a balance-sheet in the first case, but the copy of same got mislaid and he was then communicated with for a fresh copy. The remarks contained in the memo, as to Mr. Mooney not sending balance sheet, though repeatedly written and wired to for same referred to the second copy asjeed for. The memo, has since been extracted in jus tice to Mr. Mooney. D. Temple. Sec. A.S.U. Deae Hummee, Kindly publish the above apologv. It is not quite correct, but because I believe it is about the best I will get without much trouble and inconvenience, in the interests of unionism I accept it. J. Mooney.
