Justice for Mooney at Last. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 8 February 1919

Justice for Mbdney «t Lastv ' ? Information which has just reached; 'The Worker' would indicate that at' last there ib a gleam of hope for Tom Mooney — the victim of perhaps the greatest frame-up the, modern world has ever' known. For two and a ' half years Organised Labor has fought for Mooney — saw him condemned to die on the scaffold, saw his hanging postponed on no less than four different occasions, saw him finally saved from the gallows t-nly to end hit days in a felon's cell. To-day, following on the intervention of the Wilson Government, it would seem that' the Mooney fight .is -entering upon its last stage, and that ere long the jail gates wUl swing clear, and allow Tom Mooney to, walk unfettered, and. breathe the air of freedom once again. From time to time 'The Worker' has supplied the people of Australia with ex clusive Information of ^ala most remark able case; exposing the villainy of the capitalists in San Francisco in their de sire to crucify the American Worklng Ola...

How to be a Good Citizen. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 8 February 1919

How to be a Good Citizen. Come to think of it, it is very easy to be a Good Citizen — and, if you want to, to. get your name into the social columns of the Highly Respectable Papers. Briefly here is the recipe: ?. Denounce the spread of Bolshevism (and, of course, you needn't necessarily know what Bolshevism means. In fact, the less you know about it the more you are justified in denouncing it.) Point out that Capital and Labor ought to be reconciled, and that, if the workers produced more for the Boss, they would get more for themselves. Explain — forgetting that this somewhat contradicts the preceding paragraph — that the workers ought to be satisfied with their lot. -The explo/ters have the lot, and the workers have what's left; but, aftyhow, that's only a detail, and it would be Bad Manners to mention it. Indeed, tio 'mentio'n it would prevent you from being a Good Citizen!) Denounce, in nicely chosen language, those forces which are Jeopardising Na tional Unity, and are Strivin...

THE WAR—AND AFTER. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 8 February 1919

THE WA^-AND AFT£R- War consumes not only the material wealth of civilisation and the finest man hood of the race; it paralyses the impulse towards social progress and spreads black despair in the hearts of men and women devoted to great causes. It destroys the hope of social betterment and blocks every project jof reform. — Arthur Henderson. # # ? When we hear from the lips of the un thinking that this is the ilast war, let us remember that the conditions which make war inevitable remain. Our civilisation is founded upon production for profit,; upon robbery of man by man. This fact is behind the endeavor to secure wider markets, and the consequent jealousy of Capitalism develops until arms are re sorted to and war with all its horrors is. entered upon.— 'Maoriland Worker.' ' # ? # It is clear that the closer the study of the negotiations which led to the world disaster, the more impossible it is to put the blame entirely -upon the shoulders of any one European State; and the more th...

AUSTRAUAN LABOH PARTY. (DRAFT COPY.) STATE Oft NEW SOUTH WALES, i EXECtrHYE REPQRT. STATE PARTY. (Continued from last issue.) The records of the year just concluded chow clearly that the Labor Party had a particularly busy time in opposing . measures introduced by the National Go vernment. At the beginning of the year the Government pretended to* despise the (Opposition because of its numerical 'weak ness. The Party consists of thirty-two members all told; 'but of these two, Messrs. Dunn and O. Cann, were on active eer , vice, and a couple, of others, including' £he late C. Fern, were prevented from participating in the Parliamentary con flicts by virtue' of ill-health. One can readily understand that in a House' con- stituted of 90 members, it is somewhat ;-difficult for a fighting force of some twenty-eight members to make its pre sence felt, nevertheless it became apparent, before the close of the session, that the Government found it necessary to respect in no small degree the b...

Martyrs of Socialism. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 8 February 1919

Martyrs of Socialism. Karl Liebknecht shot! Rosa Luxem bourg murdered! If the information in the cables of our daily newspapers is correct, the assassins of the ruling class have indeed dealt In ternational Socialism a staggering blow. It is a hard matter to set down words sufficiently appreciative of these two giants, in -world Socialism. For Karl Lieb knecht and RoBa Luxembourg are char acters far too big to write about. Only dimly can we comprehend the majesty of these two martyrs, whose memory to day stands pre-eminent before the world. Whatever may be said of them by the enemies of the world's working class mqyement at this present, history in the future — written when man's pen is no longer tipped with the gall of hate and murder-lust — will record, ever so poorly, it is true, what the world's workers owe to these two noble characters. Our enemies may sneer to-day in the intoxication of their temporary triumph, but in the future, when the memory of to-day's so-called great men...

Boilermakers' Troubles. A GOVERNMENT BLACK-LIST. The following facts may interest your readers: — First: We have been out after an in crease in wages, and, having had two ex periences of the Industrial Court delays in getting what we desire, we decided not to have anything to do with that tribunal, so we started to interview the emDloyers. with the result that they themselves made an application, and offered us lid. per hour increase, making: our minimum rate 1/91 Per hour. Not considering this satisfactory, we decided to try other means, with the re sult tliat our members refuse to work either overtime or night shifts. We ,were taken to Court for illegal taking part in a strike, although we work 83 hours per day. But just because we ask for an increase, and refuse to work until we get it, we are found guilty of il legally striking, and fined £100 and £5/5/ costs. How is that for being1 free men, when we are compelled to work overtime after our clay's work is done, or be mulcted in ...
