I' 6ii' what takes place this year may de I jierid the whole future of the Labor Move I inent, and, to my mind, if I may say so, it 1 may be marred as easily as it may be :made» The signs of the times are not- one !whit the less ominous because they are 'at the same time so dazzlingly roseate. I for one am as full of fear as I am' of radiant hope. So much depends upon this year's events 'as to whether /Labor shall march from triumph to' triumph or be de ceived or trapped or bludgeoned into the continued upkeeping' of exploitation and oppression?

The Pharisee Again. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 8 February 1919

-The Pharisee Again. , Sir.-r-In the course of a -characteristic leader you state that 'there are still some Labor men in Parliament who are con tinually apologising for their creed and par£y.' If I Judge, the! Labor members accurately, they will be in no way .per turbed at your endeayor to impale some of them on' the end of your fountain pen. You'h'ave been so long posing as a' person of qui'te superior political 'morality that your ^hidings h^ii'e become a little bit monotonous. At the same time I may reasonably ask you to' be a little more definite in making your charges. 'The tinie to be brave is now,1' as you say, and so is it time for a brave man to be either .explicit in his criticisms or to. have the decency to hold his tongue. There are not many Labor ' members, and actions of theirs which may come within the ambit of reasonable criticism cannot be . so numerous that clear information concern ing the point of offence cannot be given. It is apparently a. congenial task to yo...

"Liberty." LLOYD GEORGE BRAND. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 8 February 1919

«ljberty.' LLOYD GEORGE BRAND. . Lloyd George, speaking before a joint conference of robbers and robbed in Lon don, eulogised the workers . at 'home 'for securing the most complete triumph of liberty in the world's history.' . You 'will take special note of the word 'Liberty' as here used, friend worker, and then we will continue with Lloyd's address. He goes on to speak of the cost of living, and declares that 'The' Govern ment is deliberately' of the opinion that the wages must be maintained at the pre sent standard pending a reduction in the cost of living.'- , Herej'ou have the whole of this man's .idea of 'Liberty'.' in a nutshell. The workers during the war, owing to sky high cost of living, were receiving wages sufficient to buy the usual poor food, poor clothing, poor bousing, cheap Entertain ments, and in return they received this brand of liberty. What Lloyd, mean's is just tliis: When- the cost of living goes down the wages will go down to the level of . being sufficient ...

CANNIBALISM AND COMMUNISM. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 8 February 1919

CANNIBALISM AND COMMUNISM. When any great common calamity over takes any section of the human race, the' sheer instinct of self-preservation com pels a resort to communistic . methods. This is true, whether in the case of a bush fire, an earthquake, or a sudden and terrible outbreak of disease. Thfire must be some deep-rooted human instinct un derlying this, fact, involving the recog nition of an unchangeable natural law which everywhere and always produces the same result. Side * by eide with the social phenomena of a reversion to com munistic methods in face of a common danger, evbry.such crisis fn human affairs always shows also that whilst the com munity as a whole moves in* the direction of communism, some individuals always seize the opportunity of a common danger as an opportunity for personal profit at the expense of their fellows in distress. This is sheer cannibalism — an active re version to primitive savagery — a preying upon, the weak by the strong and the un-. scrupulo...

Sir Samuel Griffith. Knibbs declares that there are ? only 381,668 persons in Australia who are earn ing: £106 a year, or £3 a week or upwards. That leaves 1,760,000 adult persons who are earning less than £3 a week, and out of that number 316,000 are receiving less than £1 a Week. Yet it is proposed to give the Chlet Justice of Australia nearly £5 a day for doing nothing, in order that he may die in extreme comfort, at a time all hope will be remote, though tens of thousands die in extreme discomfort. . . .

Soldiers' Union. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 15 February 1919

Soldiers' Union. It is reported that the proposed Re turned Soldiers and War Workers' Indus trial Union of Australia is being formed to fight for the rights and privileges of returned soldiers and war workers. It is not a strike-breaking machine — does not believe in Btrikes — but Is up against Trades Unionism as at present constituted. THe convenors and main supporters are Labor deadbeats who scabbed during the Big Strike, conscriptionista and patriotic Jingoes -whose whole creed is opposed to Labor, who did not care a damn who won the war so long as they accumulated huge profits at the expense of the workers. They are loyal, no doubt, but their loy* alty is confined to their own selfish in terests. When the day dawns that men, subjected to oppression and ill-treatment, are afraid to strike, Australia will take a back seat amongst the progressive na tions of the world. No, comrades, you have had hard, bitter experiences fighting the battles of these patriotic curs, and sorely you a...

LABOR'S POLICY. THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 15 February 1919

LABOR'S POLICY. THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. The abolition of the State Upper ~ House, known as the Legislative Council, has been the first plank of the Labor Party's platform for more years than most men can remember. The failure by the McGowen and Holman Labor Governments to make the slightest move towards carrying out this standing mandate of the Movement became a grave scandal years ago. Various reasons or excuses for inaction were made. There can be no doubt that the Party generally was equally respon sible with the Ministry for its do nothing policy.. The very existence of the Council is such a corrupting influence in politics that the indig nant resentment at its powers of ob struction felt by the Labor candidate rapidly cools down to easy tolerance when the candidate becomes a mem ber of Parliament As time elapses this toleration grows more mellow and kindly, until at length the one time radical destroyer of special privilege begins to see valuable points in the House of Fat, an...

"CATCH THE THIEF!" [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 15 February 1919

«$mmm&mmM When man first stood up in the primeval forests of the world, with the forces of nature dead against him fri|his struggle for existence, he had but one means of preserving himself and his race. The means was labor. He had to toil for ail! he got; and the moment he ceased- to toil he went hungry and cold. ? ' By combining with two or £hree of his fellows, however, he contrived to reducie the amount of labor necessary for a bare living; ahd; finally he carried the ' co-1. operative idea so far as to be' able, through a primitive ;form of unionism, to secure some moderate comforts and even occa sional luxuries. ?? ? ? ? ? Then arose the thief. One among the workers of the original clan ? discovered that it was easier to let others work and take by stealth what they had obtained tahn to do work himself. He tried it,, got caught in the act, and was soundly trounced by his intended victims. He pretended to work; but spent a long time in thought. Then he evolved new plans...

Melbourne reports state' that Gunner Yates, M.P., Labor representative for Adelaide, and Private Friend have been placed under military arrest and are to appear before a court-martial for an al leged breach of military discipline aboard the transport Somali. It is up to the authorities to cease treating soldiers like dogs by providing humane conditions and decent food for them aboard transports, and then there will be no need to arrest men like Yates and Friend. The air is thick with reports of the ill-treatment our returned boys are at present subjected to, and it is up to the Government to remedy the trouble. After all, returned men are a second ary consideration so far as the National 'Win-the-War' jingoes are concerned. Petersham electors should think hard ar,d vote Labor. CECIL MURPHY.
