ORIGINAL LABOUR VERSES Printed to show the Tone of the labour Movement. THE MILLS OF GOD GRIND ON [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 9 April 1892
ORIGINAL LABOUR VERSES Printed to Show the Tone of the Labour Movement. THE MILLS OF GOD GRIND ON Though we live in lasting sorrow, Though we perish in our prime, Let us consolation borrow From the thought that all tbe time &nbsp; The Mills of God grind on. Aye, resistless are the forces &nbsp; That the Universe obeys ; We are driven an our courses By a power that nothing stays ; For the Mills grind ever on. &nbsp; With stern Revolutions wheel ; They will crush the cruel aggressor 'Neath pale Terror's bloody heel ; And still keep grinding on. Though injustice seems unending, And the gristing all too slow, &nbsp; &nbsp; Let us hail the doom impending On the causes of our woe ; For the Mills are grinding on. Though all progress seems to languish &nbsp; Though the masses moan with pain ; Yet believe, this toil and anguish Will bring forth a brighter reign ; For the Mills of God grind on. For the struggles in oar borders, The upheavals out...

LAWLESS LAWMAKING [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 9 April 1892
LAWLESS LAWMAKING &nbsp; &nbsp; Before the Address in reply was finished &nbsp; &nbsp; with Gannon started in with his resolution against permitting a judge to sit in cham- bers on cases where his son is counsel. Of course everybody knew not only that this was directed against Chief Justice Lilley but that Gannon only acted as the mouthpiece of others who have a grudge against the Democratic judge. Griffith &nbsp; &nbsp; opposed the resolution in a half-hearted way, while Morehead led the squatter faction to Gannon's assistance. Drake told Gannon he wasn't sincere when he moved the resolution in a previous session and now was simply being put forward by others. Nelson wanted to treat it as "an &nbsp; abstract question. Dalrymple, of course, backed Gannon against the noted enemy of Black Labour, which brought the reso- lution to 6 o'clock and talked it out. * * * The Address in reply, besides the friends and foes of White Austra...
LET JUSTICE BE DONE. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 16 April 1892
LET JUSTICE BE DONTB. Thebe Is plenty in the land If its lords would understand Their duty to the people in the glens where they were bora. There's barley for the ' breo,' There are herrings in the sea; There are peats upon tbe moor, there is grass There are kail yards for the kail, There's milk to fill the pail, And forms and crofts and pastures in the sha dow of the ben ; And assure as dark grows bright, When the morning follows night, The olans shall enjoy their own again I In the happy days of old, Ere the oruel greed of gold Drove justice from the hearts of the traders in the soil, There was earth to dig and ploagh, There was forage for the cqw, And meal and malt ana raiment for the Bonsof hones', toil. And it's ooming yet ere long When tlieright Bhall ding the wrong, And our rulers leurn that oattle are of less acoount than men. And the struggle shall be won, And JuBtioe shall be done, And tbe olans shall enjoy their own ftfeain I Ooibles flLtmuv

THE EDITORIAL MILL. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 16 April 1892
THE EDITORIAL MILL. — The-Bfaok Labour Bill has been carried^. The few MM.L.A. who remained loyal to their pledges considered even a show of re eistanos hopeless ; and for the three Labour men, with Glassey sick, to have attempted to raise a stonewall was decided by them to be uselesB. A more lawless deed the par liamentary world has never witnessed. A more barefaced piece of political trickery ? has never 4aeen more tamely submitted to by any people. Hard times have taken tb,e backbone out of Queensland, which shows that any tyrannical act is possible if the ruiiQg^ciass only waits its opportunity and is not troubled with fine scruples. The fruit pf twenty years' agitation, of two ap parent victories at the polls, of a bi? move ment which had for its object the preserva tion of Australia as a white man's land, has been snatched away by the unparalleled treachery of a Premier and the extra ordinary sycophancy of those elected to keep Queensland white. ? * _? _ ? ?
