A PESTILENT DOCTRINE. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 25 January 1919

A ISSTILENf DOCTRINE. An Australian judge has recently de livered his soul of an ex cathedra state ment to the effect that the.. idea that any citizen may under any set of circum stances be justified in breaking a statute law is 'a pestilent doctrine.' Unfortunately, there are some problems — and this is one of them— which cannot be disposed of in any such offhand and airy fashion. The writer once- had the privilege of taking part in a friendly dis cussion on this very point, in which dis cussion Sir Henry Parkes, the greatest of ?e&\ Australian constitutionalists, was the principal spokesman. The argument was started by a casual and truly characteristic remark by Arthur Rae, that 'the only thing to do with rot tenly unjust laws was to break them, and to keep on breaking them till they were repealed.1' Parkes did not deliver any diatribes about 'pestilent doctrines,' but in a very kindly fashion he gave us a flawlessly logical statement concerning civic duty to statute law f...

The Comedy of the Federal Capital. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 25 January 1919

The Comedy of the Federal 'Capital: It was stated in the Federal Parliament' ,the other day that the houses and roads at Canberra were being allowed to fall into a state of disrepair. Mr. Watt on the same occasion remarked that he .was not averse to the building of a Federal capital in due time, and that was not. likely to be for some years after the war. Subsequently in reply to a deputation, the Cabinet de cided thajt nothing was to* be done at present. When the subject of the great city was first seriously introduced the estimate was that it would be built and everything in full swing in three years. More than that time was exhausted in the squabble of the territory. Then commenced the long series of picnics in connection with, the choosing of the site, and the disputes and debates concerning it that made it a laughing stock throughout Australia. Almost every representative in Parlia ment after Parliament deeemed it neces sary to make a personal inspection of the place. There wer...

THE TWO PEACE CONFERENCES. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 25 January 1919

THE TWO PEACE CONFERENCES. Whilst diplomats, war lords, and com mercial representatives of divers vested Interests are meeting at Paris to wrangle about future financial problems and ( spheres of commercial influence, a real Peace Conference is sitting at Berne, in 'Switzerland.

THE CANKER WORM. No. 1. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 25 January 1919

THE CANKER WORM? ,Wo. 1. (Written expressly for 'The Labor News' by MARION GARNAM.) In, this land of alleged democracy, -where the working cias'ses have actually had their own Parliament, where they .have trades unions, industrial courts, arbitra tion, fair. , rents ' courts'', and kindred bodies working'' on their behalf, one would ex pect to find good working conditions, rooa homes, good wages, and plenty of j'ood, wholesome food. If I said, instead of the above conditions prevailing, that the laboring masses of Sydney are existing on a semi-starvation fashion, none, only the workers them selves, . would believe me. ' Yet, it is un fortunately an absolute fact. The living wage has been fixed at £3. per week. Now- et us' see how far this amount will go to wards providing twenty-one meals per week for a man, his wife, and three child ren. Of course, we must not lose sight )f the' fact that the landlord comes first, jo we will deduct 12/6 per week for him (which is, of course, less t...

"Wise and Unselfish Government versus Revolution." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 25 January 1919

'Wise and Unselfish Govern ment versus Revolution.' Sydney 'Daily Telegraph' (15/1/19) in a long leader on the disruption in European countries and elsewhere, and the possible spread of 'Bolshevism' to Australia, con demns some of the crooked and question able actions of the political party it sup ports, and winds up thusly: , 'What we want here is to prevent such a conflict breaking out. This calls FIRST OP ALL FOR WISE AND UN SELFISH GOVERNMENT. It is only by PROVING THEMSELVES WISE AND UNSELFISH therefore that the National Government now in power can expect their supporters to keep them there.' ' If the existence of a 'wise and unsel fish Government,' drawn from the ranks of the 'Win-the-War' motley crowd now fai power,- is all that keeps Australia from a Bolshevik Revolution, then even the 'D.T.'r must feel that we are, on very thin ice indeed; and our future prospects most gloomy.

The "Sun," Any Old Day: "Why Are You There, Girls?" [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 25 January 1919

The 'Sun,' Any Old Day: 'Why Are You There, Girls?' It would be more logical to ask, Why do not the boya get some intelligence? The position is very amusing in many ways, and tragic in others. It appears while the boys went away to fight «for their country the dear, kind master em ployed girls in place of the soldiers, and now they ('the boys') are returning the girls cannot see their way clear to. give up their jobs. Of course the boys are annoyed. Who would not be? The sol diers blame the girls because they will not walk out— :so that they can walk in. It is not the fault of the girls— 'they have to live the same as other people' — but it. is the old gang, who promised the sol diers all kinds of things when they went to the Front; and, like all their promises, always fulfilled. Eh? It's no use screech ing, 'Why are you there, girls ?'= That Sj, cuts no ice with Fat; it only makes him smile. .Until the soldiers recognise their : .position, which is just the same. as the opposite se...

Labor's Battle Cry, ., £300 A YEAR, TAX FREE. . To the Editor. 'Labor News.' . Sir, — The suggestion of your contribu tor, C. H. Lloyd, in your issue of the 18th inst., on the above subject, is moat timely, in view of the declaration of the Com monwealth Government that the financial outlook is most serious, and that it is their inteption to substantially reduce the re turn of surplus Customs revenue to the States. Of course the financial outlook is serious. It could not be otherwise, and must be grappled with at once by the Labor Move ment, or we shall be saddled before we know where we are with some scheme, by the so-called National Government, which will be as safe for the profiteers as sad for the proletariat. My idea is that a committee of the smartest financial men of the Labor Move, ment should be at once appointed. That these men be entrusted with the duty of thoroughly investigating the financial pos sibilities of the country, and evolving a clear-cut, concrete scheme, base...

GREAT PARIS CONSPIRACY. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 1 February 1919

(MTfWCTmiWi It is becoming clearly apparent that the much advertised scheme for establishing a League of Nations is only a device for inaugurating a new world-wide Imperial ism of a much more dangerous character than the old regime. The present irre sponsible coterie of plutocrats and mili tarists now meeting in Paris actually pro pose to. complete all their arrangements for a new delimitation o! Europe with out admitting any representatives from neutral nations. No more impudent sug gestion was ever put forward by any Imperial conqueror at any period of the world's history. The most deeply wronged of all peoples during the world war have been the people of the neutral nations, who have been mercilessly crushed by both sets of combatants, and to exclude these wronged people from a conference which is suposed to be devising ways and means to secure a world peace, is abso lutely the most unjust idea that could possibly be devised.
