THE EDITORIAL MILL. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 30 April 1892

THE EDITORIAL MILL ? The Victorian elections can hardly be looked upon m a historic victory for the Labour forces ; bub neither can any tyut excited Patriotic partisans claim that Labour baa suffered a crushing defeat, j A vote numbering over a nftb ot tne vocal vote cast, some 40,000 out of some 195,000— plural voters included in the latter number —with a representation of one-ei&hth on the parliamentary total, a dozen out of 95, is not a stamping out of the Labour Patty which a year ago was barely born in buy of the Australian i dqloniei. Fairly pro-' portioned the 40,000 Labour voters should have secured twenty seats ; having to com bat not only plural votes but unequal ejeotoral districts they secured only eleven ; but even as tilings stand Labour has made good rts olaim ♦ - the voice in law-making which the self-oonstatuted rulers of men have persistently denied it.

The Police and Anarchy. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 30 April 1892

The Police and Anarchy. from hQSBQS-Fretiom ? The light which that organ of capUl taliam, the Chicago Herald, irthrdwing pn_ the recent police outrages in Chicago is extremely instructive. It appears that after the Haymarket meeting of May 4, 1886, some 300 of the leading capitalists of America met secretly to discuss the best means of ' stamping out ' Anarchy. .The notorious Citizens' Association was formed and 100,000 dollars subscribed in a few hoars. With this they secured the execu tions of November, 1887. A like sum was guaranteed to be raised every year for the use of ifae_pQlice and their secret -agents. Altogether nearly half-a-million dollars have been subscribed, although no balance sheet bavbeen issued. ~~ ? ^___^ Last October the capitalists began to get tired of this, and feeling sure that Anar chism was dead in America, ceased sub scribing. This was -a sad Wow-to those professional plot-hatchers, the organisers and managers of the Citizens' Association, and to the pol...

Professor Shelton on "Wet Day." [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 30 April 1892

Professor Shelton on 'Wet Day.' Pbofessob Shelton says innocently enough : ' ' Ab a rule it counts in the world's estimation greatly against a man to have reaohed middle life without having aooumulated some provision for 'the wet day' that ultimately overtakes all. Either he has been unfortunate or unthrifty, and people in practioe do not make nioe dis criminations between sufferers from ill-luck and bad management. It is a very pretty phrase, ' the wet day that ultimately overtakes all ?;' but it needs extending thus : 'overtakes all — those who live by wages or are knocked out 'by cut throat competition.' Were the professor as well up in economics or as familiar with the struggle to make both ends meet as he is with soils and crops he would know that the vast bulk of the people are always just earning their living and that if they fall below that they are practically wiped out altogether. Now, professor, is this not so ? Vanck's election committee have ex pressed hearty thanks to ...
