TfniEiiKiinn^ Gbntlekbm:— It having been decided at a meeting of the Associated Workers and Eleotora of the Mosgrave Distriot that I should contest the forthcoming election in the interest of the farmers and working men, I beg to lay before ing those views may meet with your approval and that I may have your support. The most vital queBtion, that of onemanono vote-and-one only, is at the present . moment agitating the minds of all the thinking portion of the human raoe. Here in Queensland thou sands of our fellowmen have No Voloe In Framing the Laura of the country, whilst others have a -doaemw more votes. It is a first priooiple of morality in politics that taxation and representation must never be dissevered. If no. vote, then no taxation ; if tax ation, then the vote. As regards Black Labour, I am Opposed to Alien Labour of any sort, Blank or Yellow. Most especially am I opposed to *lat-e labour.

BYSTANDER'S NOTEBOOK [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 16 April 1892

BYSTANDER'S NOTEBOOK ------♦-----       The criminal law is about as brutal a concoction of malice and hatefulness as could well be got together in this year of grace. It is brightened   by only an occasional gleam of   human kindness such as the   First Offenders Probation Act, which gleam, by the way, is reflected to us mostly when the mirror is held up to Jus- tice by that Buddhistic thinker, Judge Paul. The gallows, the irons, the lash, the solitary cell, the degradation of crushing sentences, all are part and parcel of the absurd criminal system by which we really fertilise the tendency to crime. Instead of recognising that those who offend against social regulations are driven to offend by causes outside of them- selves, even though inherited, we idiotically persist in treating such offenders as wil- fully wicked and in attempting to stop   others from imitating them by inciting fear of ...

AMALGEMATING THE BUSH UNIONS. Reports of the Charleville, Longreach, and Hughonden Meetings. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 16 April 1892

AMALGAMATE THE BUSH UNIONS. Reports of the Charleville, Longreach, and Hughenden Meetings. The great work of amalgamating the   Q.S. U. and Q.L.U. and of redividing the   Central District, A.L.F., into three dis- tricts, each practically occupied by a branch of the newly born Amalgamated   Workers Union has been most satisfactorily begun. The proposal of the Sydney con- ferences to amalgamate the whole of the   Australian bush unions into one, with self-governing divisions on the Queensland method has also found favour. The Charle-   ville delegate conference to be held in   May will have now but little difficulty in   bringing the movement to a close as far as   Queensland is concerned and in paving the   way for similar success re thelarger amal- gamation proposal which is practically only a continuation of the smaller one. All the meetings were held on Monday, Apri...

LABOUR IN POLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 16 April 1892

LABOUR IN POLITICS. Seventy-three Percy residents were     put on the rolls last week. More music for Hodgkinson.   THERE is some talk of a general elec- tion in July but everything will depend on   the time the Government thinks most suitable for hoodwinking the electors. This is how Bundaberg's member puts the Black Labour question : We acknowledge there is any amount of white labour, any amount of black labour in the district, but we have not the money to pay for it. We want labour we have not got to pay for. Very few blurt out the brutal truth with such frankness. The Melbourne mercantile class is as much opposed to the Victorian general elections taking place on April 20 as Morehead was to the Bulimba election coming off to his inconvenience. Zillmere electors met April 8 and de- nounced the Black Labour and the govern- ment's action by 100 to 20. The resolution was sent to M.L.A. Agnew, who backed the government just the same...

LILLEY; GRIFFITH; M'ILWRAITH. Anticipations of Government Policy and Possible Polities. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 23 April 1892

WtEY; GRIFFITH; MILWBAITH. Anticipations of Government Policy and Possible Politics. With the adjournment of the pledge breaking Parliament until June 7 comes a flutter of anticipations &s to probable moves on the political chessboard. The air is full of countless rumours, in whictrexpectation of an immediate dissolution is mainly noticeable by ite absence. Foremostly iu current political talk is the defeat Sf Fitzgerald in Bulimba. There can be no doubt that this has at once strengthened the hand of the Government and dampened for the time the spirit of the White Labour men, though the Fitz gerald vote in the populous corners of the electorate showed plainly how literally the Government relies on faggot-voting for ite dominance. Bulimba, which stretches from tue least settled bank of the Brisbane River to the far shores of Moreton Bay, is one of the most faggot-vote ridden of any of the electorates touching on the metro polis. _ Nevertheless, it would be worse' than idle -t...
