A CONTRADICTION [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 26 December 1891

A CONTRADICTION ? — — ? 'V ? -: ' Dear ' Hummer,' just aline or two to contradict certain statements pub lished in November ' A.S.U. Record' re myself and ex-agent R. Stevenson. Doubtless your readers may think the ' Record' the proper place to reply to ' Staunch Unionists' lie, but as I do not wish to recognise a paper that is supposed to be run in the interests of unionism, and not for the purpose of giving publication to such shallow minded complaints as 'Staunch Unionist' makes against us (for it is nothing but a dirty mean lie, which I am sure no thorough unionist would think of telling) I ask you to publish this denial. We admit not having obeyed the mandate, but we certainly do deny that he remonstrated with us about it, and that we said we would do as we liked. A man with any sense at all can see that we had no need to say such a thing, seeing that we were not answerable to him for our actions. We certainly were stopped and ques tioned at Echuca camp, and were will ing to st...

BOURKE NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 26 December 1891

BOTJRKE NOTES. (BY DONALD DEST:NTE.) The Bourke Labor League ' is booming* along spiffin. The branch started on the 28th November, with 60 members, and since that time has more than doubled its number. ? * * * ~ Committee busy drafting bye -laws suitable for the whole district, before the formation of divisions of the b.ianch all over the electorate. * * * Rather a difficult job to formulate a scheme for all the bush- workers to have a voice in the selection of candidates over such a large and scattered branch, but its got to be done, and it will be done somehow. * * * Billy Woods and Arthur 'Murphy are the only nominations for the secretaryship of the A.S.U. now standing. Tom White, Jack Parker (Narandera), Walter Naylor, M 'Don- ald, and others withdrew. * * * Bourke lads are glad to hear that Jack Parker has started that market g'arden at Narandera. We wish him. every success. There are plenty of openings all over New South Wales in the same line. Consider, ifc the only way of de...

SPEECH BY JACK M'DONNELL. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 26 December 1891

SPEECH BY JACK M'DONNELL. The official declaration of the poll of the Bourke election, on Monday, the 14th, was made in the presence of about 25 people only. Mr Waddell did not put in an appearance. Mr McDonnell, in returning thanks, said — 'I have much pleasure in thanking most sincerely those who supported me during the late contest. It does not diminish my gratitude to learn that I have not been success ful, nor am I vain enough to ?ascribe*! that -support which has been so gene- j rously accorded me to any personal I merit df~my~owii, but see in it only further evidence, if any were needed, of how deeply the workers of the dis trict are imbued with the spirit of unionism, and how strongly they are I convinced of the great necessity of al- 1 tering the present social conditions I under Avhich we exist. The laboivjl ml I party in this struggle have been 1 1 beaten not by their opponents but hy*w themselves. Divide and conquer I has ever been the motto of the op- I pressors, and ag...

AMALGAMATION OF A.S.U. AND G.L.U. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 26 December 1891

AMALGAMATION OF AS U AND GLTJ Our Bourke correspondent writes :-— The G-eneral Laborers Union have sent in to the head office for discussion at Conference a suggestiou that steps be taken to formulate draft of scheme for the amalgamation of the G.L.U. and A.S.U., with a view of submit ting it to the members of both unions for ap proval or otherwise. The order is certainly a rather large one, but not altogether imprac ticable. The working of the two unions are so intermingled, and there are so many points in common with each other that it seems al most an impossibility that both should be enabled to succed without some steps being' taken to bring about a unison. Besides, | as a matter of fact, the shearers are only en- I gaged at their particular occupation for five I or six months, and enter into direct oompeti- j tion wtth the members of the G-L.U. during I the remain dei* of the year.

THE PASTORALISTS' REVIEW AND OTHER THINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 26 December 1891

, THE PASTORALISTS' REVIEW AND OTHER THINGS. . ? ♦- ? ? In the August number of the * ( Pastoralists1 . Review,' after the leader writer had been charging the Shearers' Union officials with circulating falsehoods which it had taken the P. IT. secretaries all their time to refute, he remarks in even more elegant language than our own that ' ' the misery of these things is that for ten who observe the original statement fc -only one will acknowledge to seeing the con \l tradiction or denial.' hi Just so ! Now while it might not be fair - ' to claim all the virtue and veracity on our .side, yet most assuredly the Shearers' Union .as a body, and also its individual officers and members, have been falsely charged with . the perpetration of more crimes than any other trade union in existence. Actuated by prejudice, bigotry, ignorance, and class in I terests, our enemies have continually mis i represented, denounced, and oftentimes de liberately lied on platform, in the Press, and even in ...

CORRESPONDENCE. THE "WAGGA ADVERTISER" ON THE JOB. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 26 December 1891

CORRESPONDENCE THE 'WAGGA ADVDRTISER' ON THE JOB. To the Editor. Sir, — One is always pained to hear of an old comrade going over to the ranks of the enemy, therefore it is more in sorrow than in anger I notice that the individual who grinds out the leading articles for the 'Advertiser' brought forth in last Tuesday's issue of that journal such an extraordinary article, so _ full of false deductions and fabrications that one, after reading it, could hardly help thinking that the editor must have either started out on his Christmas spree a week too soon, or he had eaten his Christinas pudding a week in advance, over loaded his stomach going to bed, and wrote it whilst suffering a recovery from a severe attack of nightmare. He calls his article 'The Freetrade Defeat', but he should have entitled it 'The Triumph, of Taxation through the Stomach and the Back ; ' to call i protection is surely a play upon words. He says ' ' The life blood of a country's internal trade is the prosperity o...

LAW AND ORDER. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 2 January 1892

LAW AND ORDER No matter what our enemies choose to W to the contrary the workers of Australia have much respect for law and order as the toilers of any other country, and any disrespect for authority shown by the great majority of Australians during a time of indus trial strife, or when they find the policeman looking the other way, may be accounted for in many ways. One is, that being naturally high-spirited ow ing- perhaps to climatic influences, they cannot brook coercion, especially when that coercion is exercised by a para sitical minority for the enslavement of the useful minority. And another reason for the growing contempt for 1 law and order, so-called by the mi nority, lies in the fact that the ad ministration of justice is in. the hands of the dangerous bloodsucking- class, 'who subvert the aims of the law to their own ends. They therefore not only possess the power to keep the law in motion and drive it where they like and. how they like, and use it as a Juggernaut ? to ...

BOURKE NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 2 January 1892

BOURKE NOTES (by doxald dixnte.) Being run for Parliament don't seem to have spoiled Macdonell for graft; any way he's wading into the Moorculta wethers, and turning- out his century, although he says 118 in the water bag is rather warm. ? ?!*. Jacky Dow is down at Tooralie again, and put up 187 last Tuesday. I hear that Gwynne, Gibbs, and several others are close up. The same complaint comes from there as from Marra, that anything over 110 in the shed is too warm for comfortable work. Marrar should cut out this week. a- i'c it Geo. Raucie and his mates are in from Kallara and are rounding on the Bourke talent for not putting Mac. at the head of poll. The Kallara boys put up -42 for Mac. against 9 for Waddell, so they are privileged to give the rest of us a turn. Never mind George, we will put him in next time alright. TheA.S.U. and G-.L.U. held a meeting of members last night, when the Shearers voted £50 and the Laborers £25 to assist the tailors. Teddie Thompson said it was best t...

THE PASTORALISTS' REVIEW AND OTHER THINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 2 January 1892

THE PASTOR ALISTS ' REVIEW AND OTHER THINGS. ? _ — The ' Review' is advocating a system of employers and employees combining in one association as a means of solving the Labor Problem. We oppose it, not on the grounds stated by the ' Review', viz.? that the 'paid agitators would lose their means of livelihood, ' but because in any Association of the kind, the em ployers will have the big end of the stick. % * * \ A. sick and accident fund and a guarantee of fixed employment would be merely powerful means of enslav ing the workers while deluding them with the hone3red title of 'free' laborers. -\* Vr Such a system would not be co operation nor profit sharing : but would simply be an insidious means of breaking up the Labor organisa tions, or rendering them quite power less to resist oppression on the part of employers. Every intelligent unionist must see through such dodgery, and refuse to be gulled. * * % In writing of the scarcity of men, the ' Review' advocates putting off lamb-sh...

SMOKE HO!! [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 2 January 1892

SMOKE HO ! ! Melbourne 'Age' says there is every prospect of a good year ahead. Good ! Who for I wonder ? The writer has just received word from a printer in , Melbourne, saying that the printers' wages are being cut in nearly every shop about 30 per cent. The typos, have decided to accept the reduction as to strike now would mean the immediate filling of the unionists places by 'free' type snatchers. The same pleasant state of affairs is the rule in nearly every other trade in Mel bourne ; yet the average newspaper man offers up thanks because the credit of the colony is good. * % & Sydney 'D.T.' says English investors wont't lend Australia any more money, be cause those labor members returned to Par liament have created a feeling of distrust ; which is queer considering that in no country in the world can such security for investment be given, and nowhere else can the investor obtain such remunerative interest. What a harmless bogie man to frighten grown up men with ! ! ! ...

FEDERATION OF LABOR [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 2 January 1892

FEDERATION OF LABOR -*? ? ___ ? The proposed amalgamation of the shearers and General Laborers, if carried out, would 'be a long* step in the direction of the only -federation worth having — a complete federa tion of labor. The shearers would un doubtedly sacrifice a little at the outset, yet the ultimate gain would more than compen sate them for any concession they may now be required to make. The wage earner possesses more power than all other classes put together, and by its use he could mark out his own course bn the world's chart and steer the State ship in whichever direction he liked. In a complete federation of labor this power is to be found. By its aid the wage -earner would be able to stop the machinery of the world in 48 hours, he could subdue kingdoms, prevent war, and place himself on such a level of indepen dence that would cause capitalist and royalist to yield to his dictation. And yet we find him willing to submit to all kinds of insults and unreasonable demands fo...

BANANALAND BREEZES. BRISBANE, Dec. 27. 1891. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 2 January 1892

BAN AN ALAND BREEZES (From our Special Correspondent). Brisbane, Dec. 27. 1891. A monster ' ' Labor in Politics' ' Demonstra tion was held in the Exhibition Grounds, yes terday. The workers rolled up strong and the procession was a sight to be remembered. The amusements provided were too numerous to mention and as enjoyable as fine weather and enthusiasm could make them. We had a big open-air meeting at 4 p.m., and Tom Glassey, M.P., presided. Messrs Trenwith (Vic.), Rae (N.S.W.), and other Southern Labor members addressed the im mense crowd, each speaker urging on the workers the necessity for political organisa tion. The largest and most enthusiastic . meeting ever held in Queensland concluded with cheers for Glassey and Hoolan (the only two Labor members in the Queensland Par liament), the Southern Labor members, Sir George Grey, and the Unionist Prisoners. The success of the Labor Party here at next election is certain, though strong* .and un scrupulous opposition from those who...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 2 January 1892

CORRESPONDENCE To the Editor. . Sir,— In regard to the Fiscal question which has caused a split in the Labor Party I do not see how any of the members of that party could consistently support the robbing pro posals of the Dibbs Government. 1 At the last general election it was certainly decided to sink the fiscal question in order to carry through the House those measures ot reform on which the country, and all political parties were practically agreed. It is well known that such men as Dibbs, See, and Lyne do not sympathise with the workers, and their so-called protective tariff is merely adding burdens to the poor in order that the land grabber and the monopolist generally may still go scot-free and continue to fatten on the wealth created by the whole community, of which they form the most useless portion. The proposal to settle the question of free trade or protection by a direct appeal to the people on the basis or every man one vote is the fairest and only satisfactory way of ...

THE GIRL I'D LOVE [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 2 January 1892

THE GIRL I'D LOVE I seek 119 lady proud and grand In silks and jewels arrayed, Who turns from Labor's horny 'hand, And scorns the name of trade, .But one with Nature's homely grace, And Virtue's honest pride, Who bravely keeps a woman's place Whatever ills betide. I seek not beauty — that has wrecked Full many a noble heart — Nor graceful curves by fashion deck'd . That certainly with age depart ; I scorn these not ! All gifts are good If rightly used and understood ; I seek for beauties that will stay ' ? When youthful charms have passed away. I seek no fairy fragile belle, Who leads the midnight throng, While pleasure casts her magic spell _ To waft the silent hours along* ; The song and dance I love full well To pass away life's leisure hour ? For both of these I would not sell The homely arts or earthly bower. I seek not wealth in her I'd love Of wide -spread lands nor hoarded gold, A kindly heart shines far above Earth ' s brightest gems or wealth untold, And should Dame Fortun...

A WARNING [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 9 January 1892

A WARNING ? . — *. ? Eight tliroiigli the length and breadth of Australia has rung out the cry for the political equality of every Austra lian citizen who can claim to be a man I - — simply that and nothing more. The feeling that flesh and blood should be represented in the councils of the na tion, and not senseless clods of earth, y or dead masses of brick and mortar, I has been growing in intensity for I many long years. Not alone the I toiling masses of the cities, who see I 1 their one vote swamped by the plural I votes of the property-holder, who rnul I tiplied his political power by enfran I chising shop and warehouse, residence I and factory, office and club ; but the I dweller in the bush had his greater R grievance in the fact that continuous I residence, which to him was often im I possible, was a necessary qualification I for the exercise of the franchise. So I from city slum and suburban cottage I men joined hands with the sturdy I miner, the wandering shearer, the I far...
