WAR BOND DEPRECIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 8 February 1919

m Prom the recent operations on the Stock, Exchanges of the Commonwealth we are able to get a good idea as to the manner in which. the Federal Nationalist Government intends to protect the workers and their ?war-loan investments. When the workers were induced to take up war bonds they were assured by the Government that the bonds were gilt edged investments, and that they could not be depreciated in value. Because of this many workers who could ill afford to part with their small savings invested in Par Bonds.

THE LEAGUE OF NATIONS. BREAKERS AHEAD. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 8 February 1919

THE LEi^UE 0F NATM»IS, . i ' . ? ? r '??'.. : .-' ^- : \\-' .'?? BREAKERS AHEAD. The doctrine of self-determination, says that brilliant Roman weekly, 'L'Unita,' 'is- a heresy, and may prove one of the reefs upon which the whole League of Nations may be wrecked.' True democrats are urged to accept the dogma that the right of intervention is one which belongs inherently to the family of nations, and can be exercised by that family whenever conditions seem to require it. 'Many backward democrats have not understood that' if they.1 really desire to work effectively for- the League of Nations they must abandon without hesi tation, or regret the phantom of selfdeter mination and affirm clearly and resolutely that this war niust end the day of the old 'sovereign States,' which recognised no authority superior to their own, and re': garded as a diminution of liberty, and as a cause of war, any attempt on the part of one State to intervene in the internal affairs of another.' ?????? - . ? ,...

HOW WE SAVED THE EMPIRE. TOE WIN-THE-WARITES BAR GAIN FOR BILLETS. THE APPOINTMENT OF JUDGE COHEN. AGENT-GENERAL WADE. AND OTHER SMELLFUL DEEDS. Some two years ago Holman, and his Ministerial colleagues began to realise that they were losing their grip both on the Labor Movement and on the country generally. Their falsehood, deceit, and treachery, and their flagrant abuse of the {confi dence reposed in them had brought them into utter discredit among the 4no8t discerning members of their own party, both inside and outside pjF Parliament In fact their complete failure to carry out any. important planks of the Labor* Platform nad utterly disgusted die majority of Labor supporters, while their paltry and dishonest excuses only added to the general contempt in which* they were held.

The Deadly Mask. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 8 February 1919

The Deadly Mask. Perhaps it is too much to expect a little horse-sense, from a department pre sided over by 'J. D. Fitzgerald, but in spite of expert opinion, it must be pb Vious to anyone that the wearing of^a close mask when a person is in the. open air must be prejudicial, to health, and that the removal of it except In crowded places should be encourag'ed rather than prohibited. Every other person one meets is complaining of headache,, and no wonder; how can it,, be others wise, when .. one is forced to breathe', in a large measure, one's own breath over and over again? Life is ad mittedly made up of tragedy and comedjr — ^Bo Sydney life at the present time, al though containing novel features, is more or less consistent with that make up, bei.hg a cross between a funeral and a circus.

War Atrocities. YANKEE PLUNDERBUND. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 8 February 1919

War Atrocities. YANKEE PLUNDERBUND. ] In nearly every branch of industry in the United States profiteering/ 'due to inordinate greed,' has reached formidable proportions. 'The Federal Trade Com mission found that the profits made in some trades .were 'absolutely scandalous.' Chief amongst the war profiteers the Commission .placed the big meat packing concerns, which were said to afford the best — or worst— example. In its report the Commission states that one well known mea,t canning company realised a profit 'of 263 per cent. Another, the 'Armour,' is shown to have realised 'of- ficially' a' profit of only 27 per cent, In a year; but ' this is attributed to the fact that the company In 1916 Increased itm chare capital, from £4,000,000 to £20,060,000 -without a single dollar 5n ca'Bh being sub scribed. During the' three years 19lfc,. 1916, and 19 ;7.:.the five great. packing com panies pocketed, according to the report, £28,000,000 of profits, of which £24,006,000 represented war. g...

Subsequently he was 'pardoned, but later arrested on a fresh charge. The Dublin correspondent of the 'Daily News' states :— , x Sinister developments threaten Ireland, where action is imminent by both politi cal and industrial ranks and the repub lican movement. Battle cries will be raised for the re lease of the Sinn Fein prisoners and a 40 hours week, which will probably prove the rallying ground of three-quarters of the population. The Sinn Fein executive until Friday, night had the best possible reason for believing that the prisoners, of whom 30 out of SO are M's.P., would be imme diately liberated.
