THEY AGAIN CONDEMN THEMSELVES. THEY HAVE TAKEN SEVERAL NASTY DOSES. AND THEIR GORGE DID NOT RISE. [Newspaper Article] — People — 22 June 1901
THEY AGAIN CONDEMN, THEMSELVES. THEY HAVE TAKEN SE VERAL NASTY DOSES. AND THEIR GORGE DID NOT RISE. ' The PB 'PLB t as not minced matters in its condemnation of the Bogus Labor Party, bnt we have never published anything more damning of them than the follow ing fiom their own mouthpiece (Sydney ' Worker.' June 15) : The Leichhardt League has recently selected a Mr. Wm. Niland, a Grafton youth who studied the law in Crick's office, and who is now in business for himself. He at once dispensed with the League's secretary and established his own secretary in the committee rooms which he took. Then, without consulting the League, he asked John Norton to come out and speak for him. This Norton did last Mojiday in the Leichhardt Town HalL On thiB occasion, this would-be Labor member charged the Federal and State Labor Parties with being guilty of every crime in the calender except those he has patented for his own per sonal use. At the conclusion of a tirade of vulgar abuse, the alleged La...
Repudiated! [Newspaper Article] — People — 22 June 1901
Repudiated ! Recently the shining lights of the dying ' P. LL.' wrote to tbe daily press boas'ii g of the thou sands of unionists 'who supported them.' A nasty comment on their assertion was that ho ion of the Sydney Labor Council last week when, after one delegate talked about raising £1000, the assembled delegates refused to vote a m dest 'fiver' to this alleged ' Labor Parry.' Letter received at ''The People' office : ' Please accept the enclosed postal note for 5s as donation to cam paign fund. Every little helps. Pioneers advance, Fight for Liberty, . Onward, bravely onward, Conquerors we shall be. Yours truly, Anontmods.' J.J P. Danaher, whose name ap pears in connection with 'Biigh Labor League,' was at one time Harry Foran's chief lieutenant, w hy don't they put Foran out as a 'Labor' candidate at once. Mr. J. F.

"Everybody is Workers." [Newspaper Article] — People — 22 June 1901
'Everybody is Workers.' The sense of this is about as good as the grammar. It is attributed to Edden, --M.-L.A., by Sydney ' D.T.' We leave the grammar alo e, and confine ourselves to Edden's meaning. It should be in structive to the Newoastle miners. It is go d to know that the directors and the shareholders of th ' A. A. Company ; that J. and A. Brown, that all the c -al barons a e on the same level as the man who hews the coal, and so Mr. Alf Kdden feels quite at home when h s leaHer annouu-eB that 'we are legislating for the whole community.' New castle miners will be pleased to know that there is no narrow in tolerance about Edden, and as 'everybody is worker*,' he »ill safeguard the interests of the coal ba^onB equally with those of the miners. That is wh it the miners /oted him intp Parliament for, no doubt. But perhaps we are doing Edden an injustice e forgot to explain that while some of his con stituents are w irking for others; the r st are engaged in working the others. ...
THE STATE AS AN EMPLOYER. A BIG EXTENSION THAT SHOULD BE DEMANDED. [Newspaper Article] — People — 22 June 1901
?. THE STaTB AS RN EMPLOYER. a btg extension that SHOULD BE DEMANDED. The People recently dealt with the qaestion of foreign competition upon Australian coal production, especially as it effaced the hewing ; rate paid to the miner. As a step towards remedying existing condi tions, the desirability of building a greater demand tor coaun tne nome market wa- urged, a demand that the State should own and work coal mines to sopply its own require ; ments being advocated as a move in . that direoti in. While the State ownership of a coal mine would probably mean better conditions for the miners 1 there employed, it would not neces roily follow that the coal for public reqairem nts would be appr ciably f increased. B it, as was pointed oat 1 last week, the public, in the running 'of their railways, is the largest ooaBumer of coal, so it must be that t»ie Railway Department is the i l&rgeat use of iron and steel in s Australia. It is the practice now to show that conjointly wish the...
To Save the Bogus Party. [Newspaper Article] — People — 22 June 1901
To Save the Boqus Party. At last week's meeting of the Sydney Labor Council, Delegate Bunting returned to the attack on beh ilf of the Bogus Lab -r Party. He asked the Council to prepare a list of candidates to be end ?rse'l by the Council, and a parliamentary committee was appo nted to report at next meeting It will b« inter esting to watch the Council's action in this matter. If the Council en dorses the Borus Labor Party's candidates in the metropolitan con stituencies, it will stand in the unique position o' having given its support to non-ui ionistsand against U'iioni--ts. All the Socialist Labor Party candidates are unionists — all their opponents are non-unionist ?, and some of the latter are members of c pitalists organisations, pledged to reduce wages and increase profits. What will the Council do ?

The Iron Strike and a Socialist Secretary. At the meeting of the Sydney Labor Council ot' .'une 30, J. O. Moroney was absent, being at Wall send, spreading the light of Social ism.

AT CAPITAL'S CAP[?]OL. [Newspaper Article] — People — 22 June 1901
At CAPITAL'S CAPI OL. Op those labelled ' Labor,' C. McDonald appears to be the only one- with any 'go ' and decisi n in him, but he gets little support from others so labelled. His record in Queensland bars him from the lea dership of tie orowd he's with — it's too independent and straight to suit a gang of frauds and fools. The confusion prevailing among 1 the ' unanimous ' Bogus Labor 1 Party can be judged by the action I of those Bogus abor Senator-* (in- | eluding their 'leader') who are | anxious to ' uphold ' the Senate I as having co-ordinate po« era with the House. A party claiming to demand that a people be self governed would be solid and nnited | in whittling away the power* of a S Becond and ' conservative chamber f with the view to ultmately wiping I it out of existence But these | people call it a ' vic'ory of demo- J cracy' that the referendum was i permitted to the Australian people * to accept the Federal shac^l-s, i without realising t hat. if tl ey intelli- | gen...

THEY RESIGN THE TISK. The Government that was going to get the support of the labor men in the next parliament must in the first place be prepared to give them com pulsory arbitration. Cpoud cheers.) Compulsory Arbitration was one of , their tew bemaihiq fishes-. Tbe words are those of Mo Go wen, M.l. A., as reported by tbe S.M. H of Jane 8. 'I he smal capitals are Thk People's. If the socialist Labor party re quired any justification for its ex istence apart from the economic construction of society, it is found in those words of 'the -leader. of an alleged ' Labor Party, ' for in them is to be read a clear expre sion that capitalistic society as we know it to day is always to be, that no efforts should be made to overthrow it and substitute juste' conditions, and that' the only thing to do is to pass measures of an ameliorative character. The words, too, ' one of their few re maining planks,' shows that Mc Goweh's confreres consider that nearly all ameliorative measures have been ...

How the Bogus Ron their Show; ? The following is no cri tioism from a Socialist source, but is the testi mony of a member of the F.L. L. : ' Mr Wm. Johnson writ, s from Oi ange to say that there has been no P.L L- there for three ye- rs, and that when the Secretary of the A.W.U. recently call- d a meetii g, only l7 a' tended, of whom two were under acre. Mr. Johnson de ni-s that the selection of P.L.L. officers was fixed up L the first place there was no League, in the Becond place, when formed it had only nine members, and so the choice of officers wis limited. Mr Johnson took the secretaryship, as no else would, but even at the call of circulars and during the Federal excitement, 15 was the maximum attendance aud five the miuimum. Mr. Johnson states that it is locally rumored no one will leave Sydney to organise Labor at Orange, because Newman is too good a man to borrow from.' — Sydney ' Worker.'
