THE CANKER WORM. Written expressly for the "Labor News" by MARlON GARNAM. No. III. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 15 February 1919

[?] Written expressly *|-r the 'Labor News* by MAB.IOK GARNAM, ' [ No. HL ' Worker,' you ask yourself what 19 *; wrong. Try how you will you make nfl effectual stride towards your emancipa^ tion.

Advice to the Public. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 15 February 1919

Advice to die Public. The Consultative Council of the medi cal profession in Sydney reported in De cember last:*1 All medical evidence goes to show that epidemics of the' influenza typ.e are' transmitted from one person to an other through the medium of the fine spray that is ejected from the mouth in ordinary speaking, as well' as in coughing and sneezing. There is further evidence that at least four layers of surgical gauze are necessary to prevent the ejection of microbes from the mouth in this way; therefore, the wearing- of a mask, covered by at least four layers,, Of gauze, would materially reduce the risk of infection. This mask must cover both nose and mouth, and must be boiled daily. If the influenza epidemic should break through the barriers the mask should be worn from the time the person wearing it leaves his home until he returns. .There is evidence that inoculation, though not of the same value as or nature of vac cination against smallpox,- diminishes both the risk of...

POLITICAL ACTION AND THE NEWER UNIONISM. By V. GORDON CHILDE. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 15 February 1919

NEWER UNIONISM. ., . -: ... uy. ??.:. By V.GORDON CHILDE. '. '-The One Big Union Movement owes its ., success, I suspect, very largely to quite legitimate dissatisfaction with the results of political action alone. Indeed, six years of Holmanism have shown the grave mis take made by the Labor Movement in .Australia in neglecting industrial organ isation and expecting everything from . the State. The O.B.U. marks an alltoo 16ng delayed revival of attention to the . former aspect. .Moreover, the splendid Preamble, instinct as it is with the ideal . of a true industrial democracy, signalises the enthronement of scientific Socialism . and the overthrow of the sentimental and £ servile Fabianism, which was, neverthe less, the best in Holmanismi Still, it would be a tragedy if the reaction lead to a neglect of political organisation. I, ' — too, came to Queensland doubting the pos sibility of achieving real progress through political channels. Four months' study of the work of the Ryan Go...

LABOR'S BATTLE-CRY. To the Editor "Labor News." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 15 February 1919

LABOR'S BATTLE-CRY. To the Editor 'Labor News.' Sir, — The suggestion in a recent issue that the Labor Party at the next elec tions should make its battle-cry the re moval of all taxation from incomes up to £300 is one that does not much appeal to me. It is only a few years ago when we had not only no taxation on incomes of £300, but we had no income tax at all, either State or Federal, and matters then were not much better than they are to day. Then, the idea put forward by your correspondent that taxation should be based on 'equality of sacrifice' seems to me to require adjusting. Would it not be much better to geT back and endeavor to ascertain a fair basis of taxation? In the municipal government of New South Wales the rates are struck without exempation, gradation, progression, or rebate on the unimproved land values in each area. la other words, a person pays in exact proportion to the value of land he holds, irrespective of its size, location, or shape. If he builds or improv...

CORRESPONDENCE. BLACK-LISTS. FREELY CIRCULATING. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 15 February 1919

CORRESPONDENCE. BLACK-LISTS. FREELY CIRCULATING. That black-lists' are circulated, by the Government, the Railway Commissioners and Big Business generally has been fairly widely known for a long time. It is, however, somewhat rare for such positive, unimpeachable proof to be adduced as that produced last week by the Secretary of the Boilermakers' Stfciety. Usually the bosses and their creatures hang on to such incriminating documents with leech-like tenacity, whilst all the time denying their existence. For illustration, the Chief Com missioner for Railways has all along de nied that lists of the men who went on strike were circulated among outside em ployers. The following cases constitute the strongest possible grounds for infer ring that Mr. Fraser is, well, a stranger to the truth :— Mr. I.L., a tramway conductor who was victimised for his audacity in ceasing work, 'applied for and was on^the point of engagement by a big drapery firm, when he was asked, 'Were you ever on the tra...

THE DEADLY MASK. To the Editor, "Labor News." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 15 February 1919

THE DEADLY MASK. To the Editor, 'Labor News.1 Sir, — I have read a good deal of the! correspondence which has appeared in the' daily press on this subject during the past fortnight, and have also discussed the matter with a great number of people. As a result, I have been forced to the con-: elusion that one portion of the community regards Mr. Fitzgerald as the very in-i carnation of administrative wisdom, whilst another portion holds the opinion; that he is the quintessence of administra-4 ' tive imbecility. There is, of course, an-! other section which has no jdefinitej opinion on this, or any other, subject. Having some spare time on my hands, and being endowed with that -fatal trait which killed the proverbial cat, I deter-: mined to make a tour of insnection fama. teur, of course) of some city shops.

A PROMISE UNREDEEMED. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 15 February 1919

A PROMISE UNREDEEMED. Sir, — When the Federal Government passed that most humane piece of legis lation known as the 'Maternity Allowance Act, every person charged with a desire for the development of a virile, pure blooded nation was loud in acclaiming the wisdom and humanity of those responsible for its creation. There were a few, of course, from whom it evoked cavil and cant, and a puerile and cynical criticism. These people in their captious arguments in opposition to the bill referred to it as a Bangle Bonus, and inferentially declared 'that it would ulti mately prove the price of many a woman's virtue. These people to-day, as then, rather than do anything that would alle viate human suffering and avert the anxiety of those to. whom Australia looks to keep her cradles filled with pure blooded Australian babies, would, un abashed, prostitute the powers with which tbe people have entrusted them in their efforts to keep the doors of Australia ajar to the promiscuous immigration of ...

Muzzled Misery. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 15 February 1919

'- IMuzzled Misery. The idjo{ip law compelling the wearing of masks in streets and. ^ther open spaces is bringing along a crop of protests, and causing, an even bigger crop of head aches. Naturally, the mask, thick and close enough to stop germs, which are so small that a thousand of them could 'play cricket on the point of a needle, also stops the ingress of fresh air. It also catches the spent and foul air breathed out of the lungs, which is full of dead matter and living germs feeding upon it. The conse quence is that inhaling too little oxygen and exhaling too little of the poison gas (carbonic acid), headaches and sickness result * - a ? ? -j» GROG AND COMMON-SENSE. Some doctors are quoted in support of alcohol as a valuable drug in the treat ment of influenza. The writer is not a doctor, but 'is quite prepared to believe the statement may be correet. If so, then no stronger argument could be given for not using any form of alcohol as an or dinary, beverage. No one with ordinar...

The Deadly Mask. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 22 February 1919

The Deadly Mask. For a few days it appeared as if a little horse-sense had pushed its way into the heads of our tin-pot political Kaisers in Sydney. Modified rules were issued by the Health Department, allowing citizens to decide for themselves (in a measure) when it would be wise to take In a cargo of oxygen by dispensing with the deadly germ-breeder— pro-tem. On a street or any public place where plenty of fresh air, and few, if any, people were about, a humble citizen of the gar den variety was to be allowed to exercise his own judgment- as to whether he was either subjecting others to the risk of in fection or taking that risk himself. This modification was issued on Friday night, but by Sunday our imitation Prussianists had taken fright at their own horse-sense and practically rescinded the, relaxation order, by issuing, urgent instructions1 to the police to keep their eyes wide open for anyone doing such a sensible thing as breathing fresh air. 'Twas ever thus, the weaker the ...

Generous (?) Railway Commissioners. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 22 February 1919

Generous (?) Railway Commissioners. On December 23 last an armed and masked robber attempted to hold up the Western mail, and was beaten off after a desperate struggle by Driver James Whelan and Fireman Dave Gorry, who were, of course, unarmed and taken by surprise. Railway Boss Fraser and his colleagues have now recognised their 'courage and devotion to duty' by the splendid reward of restoring their back . pay which they' forfeited for being on strike in 1917. This amounts to about £4 for Whelan and a little over £2 for Gorry. As these men had honestly earned this money before they ceased work the rail way bosses are only restoring the men's own money, of which they were unjustly plundered. . It is safe to say that If they had been a couple of scabs they would have re ceived a big cheque apiece and an illu minated address from the railway auto crats. It Is even safer to say, however, that if they had been scabs they would never have done such a plucky thing. ? ' — ? m- — Up at Sco...

Returned Soldiers and Unionism. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 22 February 1919

Returned Soldiers and Unionism. Sir, — A circular which speaks for itself is now being distributed amongst returned men in the hope, probably, that some of them will be gulled into joining up with the scab union and helping to fight mas ter's battle against the workers through out Australia. ... A few suggestions by a returned soldier may not be out of place, and possibly will help some of the boys to make up their minds to do the right thing in this critical period of Australia's industrial history. ' Regarding the promises made from re cruiting platform's for you to enlist, no surprise need be expressed at them being broken as readily as they were made, as history , is only repeating itself, and re turned men are now receiving the treat ment that has ever been meted out to all soldiers when their job was done! Let the boys look the question squarely in the face, and realise what is the ca'use of the present slackness in the industrial field. The present so-called Nationalist Gover...

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER PUBLIC LIBRARY OF N.S.W. Corner Bent and Macquarie streets.] NATIONALISATION. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 22 February 1919

|H|i|^^»g; PUBLIC LIBRARY OF N.8.W. Corner. Bent and Macquarie streets.; NATIONALISATION. Recent world events have awakened a new zeal and demand for an industrial democracy. Nationalisation is often sug gested as one method of approach to this goal. The suggestion of nationalisation of land, industries and capital recalls the ideals of Edward Bellamy, expressed in bis famous novel, 'Looking Backward,' in which he pictures the City- 'of Boston In the year 2000 under a system of so called 'nationalism.' Bellamy's plan was called nationalism because it pro ceeded by the nationalisation of indus - tries, including the mun legalisation and State control of localised .businesses, to a complete provision for the employment and maintenance, of all. the people. ,The economic principle of 'nationalism', de veloped in America into a political move ment; with regard to the Nationalist, pro gramme for introducing their ideas, Bel lamy wrote in the 'Forum,' March,. 1894: 'Nationalists would prep...
