Russia and the Peace Conference. NO REPRESENTATION. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 25 January 1919

Russia and the Peace Conference. NO REPRESENTATION. The Peace Conference is pretty evi dently not to be a meeting of representa tives ^of all the lately warring nations. The Bolshevist Government of Russia is, apparently, to have no admission. . Britain, we were told last week,' is merely willing to hear what 'Lenin and other Russian Governments have to say about the future and what they propose and what they seek,' but this not within the Conference. Already some organisa tion calling iteelt the 'Council at the Rus sian National and Democratic Control' advises that 'any compromise with Bol shevism would be capitulation to a worse scourge than German militarism; *? and the Allies have probably invited that opinion. j. But if Russia, whose Government of 1914 was the main factor in precipitating general war. is barred from representa tion, the decisions of the Conference can of course be in no way binding on the Russian people. What then will follow? Conjoint; coer cion of Russia '.'b...

Care of State Children. IS EVERYTHING ALL RIGHT? SOME REASONS FOR DOUBT. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 25 January 1919

Care of State Children. IS EVERYTHING ALL RIGHT? SOME REASONS FOR DOUBT. Quix: Recent ' controversy between Catholic Archbishop Kelly and Minister of Education James regarding the control of State children had a purely sectarian aspect. But there are other and perhaps more important relations in which the welfare of such children may also be con sidered. For years past it has been spasmodically charged against the boarding-out system that it occasionally fosters child slavery, that children are sought from the de partment by persons who wish to profit by the labor of those infants, and are then worked most exactingly. As often as charges of this sort have been voiced the department and the board in control have assured the public that they are not true, and that all is exceedingly well both with those wards of the State and the. system that controls and cares for them. But many doubts remain, nevertheless, and, on the whole, with much reason. Children boarded out with persons liv in...

Settle the Question Right. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 25 January 1919

Settle the Question Right However the battle Is ended, Though proudly the victor comes, With flaunting Hags and neighing nags And echoing roll of drums; Still truth proclaims this motto In letters of living light. No question is ever settled Until it is settled right. Though the heel of the strong oppressor May grind the weak in the dust, And the voices of fame with one acclaim May call him great and just; Let those who applaud take warning And keep this motto ia sight, No question is ever settled Until it is settled right Lei those who have failed take courage, Though the enemy seem to have won; If he be in the. wrong, though his ranks are strong The battle is not yet done. For sure as the morning follows The darkest hour of the night. No question is ever settled Until it is settled right. ...... O men, bowed down with labor, ' O women, young yet old, 6 heart oppressed in the. toiler's breast And crushed by the power of gold,. Keep on with your weary battle Against triumphant might...

PROGRESS OF BOLSHEVISM. 'WHAT IT MEANS TO THE WORLD.—A NEW EVANGEL. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 25 January 1919

PROG^S OF BOtStffiViml 'WHAT IT MEANS TO THE WORLD.— A NEW EVANGEL. For those who follewe'd the various stages in the Russian revolution there_is now great interest derivable from even the imperfect news1 which 'reaches Aus tralia from Germany. Just as in Russia an attempt was made to wrest from the people results achieved by the overthrow of . Imperialism, so in Germany there has been, and is still, desperate efforts, to turn the revolution there into a mere change of Government without any essen tial alteration in . past Governmental methods. ? Privilege, reactlonaryism, capitalism, and the bourgeoisie generally tried in, Russia to seize and. hold the reins of -power to . the exclusion of ? Socialistic de- mocracy.

Speaker Cohen's Judgeship. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 25 January 1919

Speaker Cohen's Judgeship. ' All the Sydney newspapers are strong in their condemnation of the proposed appointment -of Speaker Cohen as a Dis trict Court Judge. Possibly the press has decided that for sanitary reasons this corrupt Government must be buried, as the hot weather has made the effluvium more dangerous to the public health than the influenza plague. If the combined daily press has come to this conclusion Cohen's -appointment would probably suit them as a peg to hang the Government on, as well as or better than anything else. If the silo contracts, or the resumption of costly estates for soldier settlement, or any one of the other score of things which might be mentioned, were chosen, then a good deal' more might be' stirred up than the, newspapers themselves would care to see. Consequently ' they ' concentrate ' on the comparatively minor sin of appoint ing a big, 'fat,- stupid Speaker to be a fat, stupid judge, to be* paid a' big, fat salary1 by. a leanr'stupld public' ...

MODERATION AS A POLITICAL CREED. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 25 January 1919

MODERATION AS A POLITICAL CREED. ; Moderation in language and gene ral conduct is most coinhiendable, but moderation in politics does not and cannot really exist. The divisions between political parties are either pure humbug or deep realities. 'Where individuals or parties differ on vital principles, moderation is the parent of compromise, and compro mise in polities denotes merely the cowardice or the greed of those who adopt its methods. Their assumed 'moderation' -is in reality the sur render of principles for the sake of votes. They either desire to gain of fice, or if in office to stay there, 'by doing as little as possible for the elec tors and as much as possible for themselves. No principle can ever be put into operation with any prospect of ''suc- -v cess, excepting 'by those whose belief - in it is founded upon a knowledge of what it involves, and their courage is equal to the task of seeing it through : to its logical conclusion. When big issues are at stake, the greates...

AUSTRALIA AND THE GERMAN COLONIES. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 25 January 1919

AUSTRALIA AND THE GERMAN COLONIES. 1 The following extracts are taken from an article under the above heading in the -'London 'Atheheum' of August, 1918, con tributed by that journal's Australian fe , ? presentative. — 'It is impossible ror England to realise the length to which the censorship ,and general repression of speech have gone in Australia, and so those who have old . fashioned 1914 views as to the future 'of ' the German colonies either cannot or dare not 'make them public.

(To the Editor, "The Labor News.") [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 25 January 1919

(To the-Edltor, 'The Labor News.') Sir, — Mr. C. H. Lloyd, in your issue of the 18th instant, suggests' '£300 a' year; tax free,' for LaboT's war cry at the inert elections. ' The suggestion is opportune. The war is over, and the profiteers' bump ing harvest is -almost reaped. . These friends of the Win-the.-War Party in moBt cases have their stocks overloaded, this being the outcome of anticipating a 'long war' and a 'long robbery.' They are very anxious to unload now, as commer cial travellers will admit; and, with be. lated Indents now on the water, the cer tainty of much competition at low prices In the near future gives the worker his chance to hit back by adopting Mr. Lloyd's suggested 'war cry.' During: the four long years of war these profiteers passed all their taxes on to the worker. They also were encouraged by the Win-the-War Party to charge high prices. The Nationalist Party introduced a war profit tax. Say SO per cent, was paid of that as taxes, and the war profit was ...

A White Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 25 January 1919

A White Australia. Considering how ? long 'A White Aus tralia' has been its -watchword, this coun try ought to be pretty well bleached by now; but it is far from being as white as the frequent reference to that policy would lead a stranger to suppose, if the policy were strictly honest, there would be more openings to-day for the returning soldiers who have to get a living from the soil. Market gardening is almost wholly in the hands of Chinese' iri' every State, though one patriotic daily was bemoaning the fact not very long ago that these cabbage raisers were becoming fewer on account of the old men dying off, and others being prevented by the Allen Restriction Act from filling their places. This suggests that the vegetable Johns are all patriarchs, but actually one sees more young bloods about than old. However, the -alleged shortage, it was asserted, male vegetables more expensive than formerly. As a mat ter of fact, Quong Foo and Long Jang are not cheap — except, in their mode ...

LLOYD GEORGE ASTORY LEADER [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 25 January 1919

? - ? ' -i ?' ' -M 'There has probably never been a mo ment in English politics when . the situ ation has been so tangled and confused. The erstwhile leader of English Radical ism is now* the Prime Minister in a co alition, predominantly Conservative in character. 'Meanwhile, official Liberalism not merely stands aloof, but actually refused a' position in which agreement with its former champion could have been reached. His domestic programme in no wise savors of boldness or of novelty. It seems, indeed, more like an off er of con-' cessions than an attempt, as is the case with the Labor Party, courageously to face the fact that we have already passed to a new era. Upon 'the problems of de mocracy in industry, upon the kind of taxation that is necessary to pay for the war, on- the development of higher, and particularly adult, education, Mr. Lloyd Geroge refuses to raise any hopes. The strength of his position lies rather in the weakness of his opponents than in his own powers. 'The...

"Labor's Battle Cry." (To the Editor, "The Labor News.") [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 25 January 1919

'Labor's Battle Cry.f* (TO -the Editor, 'The Labor News.') ' Sir, — In these days, when the minds of so many of our leaders eeem almost wholly engaged In chasing political will, p'-the- wisps, what1 time the profiteers are settling both hands deeper and deeper .into tn-f pockets of the people, It is hopeful to find ''The Labor News' publishing constructive suggestions, such as 'those contained in recent articles, ?'Thoughts on Democracy' anrt 'Labor's Battle Cry.' 'n To those who missed it, I strongly com mend an article on the new economic functions of the State, which is, I gather, fro'm the writings of one of the world's leading economists, evidently a Socialist of great capacity and apparent sincerity. 'If,' he says, 'the common people are to have any power over their national and moral destiny they MUST obtain the MASTERY OF THE -POLITICAL STATE.' Thoroughly convinced of the reasoning surrounding this deduction, I am all the m«re pleased to welcome the concrete proposal, made b...
