LAWLESS LAWMAKING [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 2 April 1892

LAWLESS LAWMAKING When Parliament met on Tuesday last' it was promptly informed that the Griffle wraith Ministry intended to break its repeated pledges, to reverse 'the twice expressed verdict-of-the--country and to do tbat wbich all political morality, all con stitutionality and all regard for the dig _nitj^and honour r/* lawgiving forbade it to do. This announcement, read from the vice-regal chair, did not cause the ' honourables' to rise in their wrath and j Bummarily eject the Government from office. Not very much. The 'Liberals' sat in dumb acquiescence, while the ' Op position' smiled a 3tnile &a long as your ' arm. These precious lawmakers, who get 1 bo excitod at the ' seditious' utterances of ! the Worker and frothed at the mouth j over the pretended lawlessness of the bush j strike, calmly went back on all their promises and proceeded to use the Parlia , mentary power which they secured under ! false pretences— by pretending to be '\ White Labour men — ' to imperil...

AGAINST THE SLAVERS [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 9 April 1892

AGAINST THE SLAVERS I Everybody knows how the commercial press is attempting to gag the White Queensland cry. As stated in last week's Worker one Rev. A. C Smith rushed into print with an attack on Dr. Paton for his appeal to Australia against Griffith's burearcneu revival oi tne siave traae. 1 nis drew a reply from the Rev. J. S. Pollock, of Sherwood, which reply was refused pub lication by the Courier and Obgeriter, though they had both published Smith's letter. The reason given for the refusal was that 'it contains no new facts and no new arguments ; ' the true reason, as everybody must see, was that it opposed Black Labour, and these 'mouthpieces of public opinion' are playing for TJlaok Labour to win. However, here is Mr. Pollock's rejected letter, unabridged and uninterpolated : 1 ' To the Editor of the Evening Observer 'Sir, — It was with astonishment and pain that I read the letter appearing in your issue of 26th inst. signed A.
