Generosity (?) [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 15 February 1919

Generosity (?) Is it possible that there can be any foundation for a rumor which has gained currency in the city during the past few days, that some firms have granted their employees a fortnight's holiday on full pay, on the condition that they agree to forego their weekly, half-holiday for the rest of this year? This would work out an follows:—; : Half -day holiday for 46 weeks . . .23 days! A fortnight on full pay ? 12 „ Balance against employee .. 11 days 'How we got eleven days' service for nothing' would be a neat way for these generous gentlemen t«. put it, if it is true* .

AUSTRALIAN LABOR PARTY. .--.-? -DRAFTCOPY.J STATE OF NEW SOUTH WALES. ' '- '.?'.?? ' ' m ? ' — — — ' ? i ' EXECUTIVE REPORT. MUNICIPAL. Concluded from last issue.) The Municipal Council Party's work for the term just ended has been of much ad vantage to the workers. It is true that only 10 of a Council of 26 were pledged Labor .men. Nevertheless, by , the pre sentation of a solid and determined front, the Party was largely responsible for much beneficial legislation. The election of practically a Labor majority .of the. Council on December 2 was the recog-. nitioh by the citizens of the necessity for an intelligent and progressive. govern- ment of the city's affairs. The first test of strength was decided by the election^ of the Lord Mayor, which resulted in the election of the nominee of the Labor Municipal Caucus. _, ' This victory of Labor opens a wjde field for useful work in the . interests of the, citizens.

Ore Buying. PARALYSES PROSPECTING. (The first article on this matter appeared on January 11, 1919.) II. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 15 February 1919

Ore Buying. ? , PARALYSES PROSPECTING. (The first article on this matter : appeared on January 11, 1919.) J Tr. '' . Mr. Frank Prospector and his . mates spent six months in fetching water races from ' the winter show -fed Croajingalong Mountains, in excavating a site, and, erecting their little four-stamper battery' and water wheel. The old man then put roughly through a few loads of his bismuth wolfram ore, getting a little over 1001b. of concentrates. This was sent to the Sydney ore buyers, really as^a test sample. The stuff assayed 24 per cent, tungstic acid and 19 per cent, bismuth metal. That, if separated, should have brought in £2/14/- for the wolfram. The 191b. bis muth in the residues, when sold to the London bismuth agent in Sydney, would : realise 6/6 or 7/- per lb. metal. Take the lowest price, 19 times 6/6, we get £6/3/6.

Open Confession. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 15 February 1919

Open Confession. When Socialist papers warn the toil ers to take little heed of the wild stories about Russia that come through the cables, it might reasonably be supposed that they are indulging in partisan advice. That this is not so any student of the cables knows. The cables, particularly on Labor mat ters, are not only, unreliable, but most times are chockful of misrepresentation, not to say cold-blooded lying. It is pleasing to show, as .has been done on many occasions, that the capitalist papers themselves admit the lying. The latest in this connection is a mes sage which came through last week mixed up in the Peace Conference messages. . These are the words: 'The situation in Russia is terribly complicated by the ab sence of reliable information.' Notwithstanding that declaration, the same, cable service on the same day in dulged in a lot of lies about the Bol sheviks, and there is no reason to sup pose that there will not be aa uninter rupted continuance of such messages. ....

THE WAR—AND AFTER. RETURNING SOLDIERS AND THEIR WIVES AND CHILDREN "TREATED LIKE CATTLE." MELBOURNE, Feb. 9, 1919. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 15 February 1919

THE WAl^AI^^Mfc RETURNING SOLDIERS AND THEIR WIVES AND CHfLDREN' -:: - Y ?-' 'TREATED LIKE CATTLE.' ' MELBOURNE, Feb. 9, 191$. The Miltiades arrived yesterday and in cluded in the total' of about 600 souls on board were 69 soldiers; 20 of whom are bound for Sydney, 360 soldiers'' wives and dependents, and some munition workers. 'Go and look where we had to sleep,' said one of the girls aboard. They al leged that the sleeping; accommodation was deplorable to a Segree. The cabin was a dingy, stuffy apartment between decks in the after part of the 'ship. The bedclothes were of the coarsest descrip tion. There was1 'not the slightest attempt at privacy of any kind'. Many of the women say that they would have '-starved if they had hot bought meals from the first-class stewards. They paid £23 for their passage, 'and 'these additional meals cost them about f L a week extra, MELBOURNE, Feb. 10, 1919.

THE SCIENTIST AND THE FAKIR. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 15 February 1919

THEMilTlSt AND THE k Professor Kirk, who in -his day was a very distinguished scientist of Edinburgh University, once said: 'Always intelli gently carry out the directions of your medical adviser — when they do not con flict with your common Bense.' This is a very sound, practical piece of advice, which is. sorely needed to-day? when Australia is threatened with the universal and inevitable aftermath of war— 'the pestilence that walks in darkness.' It is in times like this that the scientist and the mere Takir stand revealed. The scientist is always open-eyed, always ready and eager to ascertain new taats — always seeking -*elow all outward pheno mena the underlying natural law, and al ways ready to conform to that law. The fakir, on the other hand, merely repeats incantations and shibboleths which he has learned from some other fakir, and he is absolutely indifferent as to whether those incantations and shibboleths do, or do not, coincide with observed facts. When our medical scien...

For Women. ARTIFICIAL BABY-FEEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 15 February 1919

For Womefi. ARTIFICIAL BABY-FEEDING. The patent food adulterator will tell you that the hiilk from the cow was made for the stomach' of a calf, and that 'cooked' milk is indigestible. . If the mothers would only pause to think a bit they'd get wise to the fact .that the tinned milk curse is simply 'cooked cows' milk,' with the addition of various foreign ingredients, never by any chance intended by nature for the stomach of a newly-born child. The late Professor Budin, of Paris, in troduced the method of feeding' children from birth with undiluted cow's milk, and he got most satisfactory results! , It has been proved beyond doubt that the following is as near as science can get to the human article, and it can be prepared quickly and at a, fraction of the cost of 'the preserved rubbish: — : Up to Two Wfeeks Old.— Milk, one table spoonful; water, three tablespoonsful; lime water, two teaspoonsful; cream, half a teaspoonful; sugar, half a teaspoonful.

A Healthy Rebel. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 15 February 1919

A Healthy Rebel. » — — A Balmain medico, Dr. George Fox, has flatly refused to wear a mask, stoutly affirming them to be extremely dangerous to health, particularly in lowering the power of resistance to disease as a re sult of the continuous re-breathing, the discharged air and dead matter emanating from the lungs. He was committed for trial and offered bail, which he refused, and straightway drove to Long Bay Jail to await his trial. Subsequently he 'ap- * plied for bail and was released, .after spending a night or two in prison. The/ doctor relates that as soon as he landed in the, cells he was .forcibly compelled to wear a mask, and he therefore accepted bail, as outside .he could refuse the adorn, merit at his own risk. ? Incidentally, the doctor says his 'treat- ment during his short sojourn in prison was so, inhuman that, if typical of the system generally, ^ he can only regard it ' as a disgrace to civilisation.
