WAR PRECAUTIONS AND WEEVILS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 26 October 1918

WAR PRECAUTIONS AND WEEVILS, We have been officially Informed that such portion of the .404,000,000 bushels of wheat taken possession 'of by the Wheat Pool as has not been consumed locally, or exported, is still in safe custody. The official figures show no allowance whatever for loss or depreciation, and this omission is explained by a further official statement that any losses have been abso lutely Infinitesimal. It is definitely stated that, in the case of the New South Wales 1917-18 wheat crop ot 33,750,000 bushels, that the loss is less than One-tenth of 1 per cent. Further, we are officially told that ' in rare cases where wheat has been damaged -by the attacks of mice or weevils the cost of cleaning, providing new bags and re-stacking under absolutely vermin-proof condition, only amounts to 3Jd. per bushel, exclusive of freight. Of course we' believe all this— we have to. As Mr. Holman says, 'The way to keep out of trouble is not to talk,' there fore' sensible citizens do not...

IN DEEP WATER. SEDITION BILL AND PROPORTIONAL REPRESENTATION. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 26 October 1918

[?] SEDITION BJlUL AND -«OPORT4ONAL REPRESENTATION. * ' The strenuous efforts of the New South Wales Government to justify' th* assump tion of its title of a^ ^^'Win-the-War' .Go yernment is apparently 'getting it into very deep water. If Mr. Holman is able to secure the final passage Oi'*his Sedition Bill through the Legislative Assembly, then the curious position will arise that while a 'person may :be-eligible- for, election to the highest Legislative honor — thait is, to be eligible to le&islate for the entire Commonwealth— under Mr. Holinan's peudo -measure he cannot sit for the im maculate Assembly of- New South Wales. It has remained for Mr. Holman to prove the inaccuracy of Euclid's axiom, for clearly Mr. Holman is. demonstrating that the 'part is greater than its whole.'' __ ? Another mirage- that is being' chased by the 'Win-the-War' Government's sup porters is that of proportional ? represen tation. The claim that this system will purify .elections and elevate the...

THE COMING OF THE MONEY TRUST. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 26 October 1918

THE COMING OF THE MONEY TRUST. Recent* developments in- England and elsewhere make it fairly obvious that, apart from being made 'safe for demo cracy,' the world is also going to be made 'safe' for the Money Trust.- In short, a scheme is now under way by which the Money Trust will effectively corner the world's wealth. A series of bank amalgamations have recently taken place in England and else where. According to the London 'Na- tional News,' of July: 21 last, no less than £1,208,000,000 worth of capital, re serves, and j, deposits — seventy-five per cent, of the total of all the joint stock banks of England: — has been placed under the control of five managing directors. Since then the Money Octopus has gath ered other smaller fish within its ten tacles, and doubtless the process will go on until the whole of the wealth, real or otherwise, . has been padlocked for safe-' keeping1. ' The object of the establishment of a monopolistic Money Trust ca*ii be seen at once. ? The Money Tr...

SLAVERY—NAKED AND CAMOUFLAGED. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 26 October 1918

SLAVffiY-NASED AND CAMOUFLAGm Civilisation as It has been known up to the present time is neither more nor less than human slavery. All of its achieve ments have been attained solely at the expense of the unpaid toil, sweat and agony of human chattels driven to their tasks either under the lash direct or by means of other equally effective methods of compulsion. The «o -called splendors of ancient empires, their hanging gar dens, their pyramids, their- magnificent temples, were brought forth by chattel slaves driven under the lash without hypocrisy, pretence, or camouflage upon the part of their masters. There was no pretence made of recompense or payment. All -was cold and calculated brutality, undiluted by any pretence of spiritual solicitude or tiumanitsrian impulse. It was slavery in the raw, plain, blunt, ana unmistakable; ^ -? . The slaves 'were driven in production', and the masters revelled in* the products brought forth. The slave toiled to feed, cl«the, and house his maste...

THE SHADOW. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 26 October 1918

THE SHADOW. Nineteen sad, sleepless centuries Had shed upon the dead Christ's eyes Dark blood and dew, and o'er them still The waxen lids were sealed chill. Drearily, through the dreary years, The world had waited on in tears, With heart, clay-cold and eyelids wet, But He had not. arisen yet. Nay, Christ was colS; and colder still The lovely shapes He came to kill Slept by His side. Ah, sight of dread! Dead Christ, and all the sweet gods dead. He had not risen, tho' all the world Was waiting; tho', with thin lips curled, Pale, Antichrist upon his prison Gazed yet denying. He had not risen; Tho* every hope was slain save Him, Tho' all the eyes of heaven were dim, Despite the promise and the pain, , . . He slept — and had not.risen again. Meantime, from France's funeral pyre, Rose, god-like, girt around with fire.
