A Minister for Bad Smells. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 22 February 1919
A Minister for Bad Smells. While Health Minister Fitzgerald is issuing all sorts of decrees and regula tions to preserve the people from the rav ages of ' 'flu,' he point-blank refuses to take any action to remove one of the worst stenches in the whole metropolitan area. Out at.Marri'ckville there is a high brick sewer shaft, which has been allowed to noison- the air for a radius of a pnnnle of miles for years and years. Either through faulty construction or because no very wealthy people live handy, nothing effective has ever been done or attempted. Two or three, hundred yards from this sewer ventilating shaft an even worse and more disgraceful menace to. the public health is permitted to exist. Here .a night soil depot is in daily operation on a small triangular piece of ground surrounded by a -board fence. . ? . ? On one, side qf, the fence Js a factory employing^ a ' number of men and boys v/ho have to suffer the cleansing of the pans under their very noses. ' On the other side ...
A Grateful Country. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 22 February 1919
A Grateful Country. Conditions' revealed by the Sardiaia, in quiry wilt perkaps not astoais3i those who remember how 'oux soldier tooys' were tossed back from South Africa at the con clusion of the Boer War. The case of the transport Drayton Grange, subsequently more or less hushed up by a Royal Com mission, recalls the awful experiences of several thousand Australian troops who were packed like sardines in an old tub that could only t-e described as a float ing death-trap. But Britain's treatment of even her most heroic .soldiers has been a scandal for centuries, and, as an in stance of this, a year or two back there, appeared a small paragraph m an obscure corner of a London newspaper stating that Stacftpoole, V.C, who, besides that coveted distinction, had won seven other medals for conspicuous bravery, had passed away in an English workhouse. The only re cognition that a grateful1 ' country had given him was a yearly outing in the Lord Mayor's Show. Lot us dig up, in support, an...

The 'Flu. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 22 February 1919
Hie 'Flu. Pray, note the proclamation Re this inoculation ' . ? That is issued to the doctors by the mighty B.MJC ; If the vaccine cost you nix,' Just charge them ten--and-six, We are out to make the boodle, so make the people pay..- ' And God bless Willie Watt, Who presumably forgot The nature of the scourge that was ' . knocking at our door; Hp was' ousy robbing kids, «. So we doff to him our lids, For we'll reap a tidy fortune from the pockets of the poor. What matter if they curse?

In the- reaping' they will find; Mure tares within the harvest than they really bargained for. Of course, 'tis understood. It's an ill wind blows no good. To guard against the 'flu we must wear a germ-proof, mask; Without the slightest cause Up goes the price of gauze, And again we grin and bear it and pay whate'er they ask. They prey on people's- rfeed, And all are -mt to- bleed...
THE BOSS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 22 February 1919
lot DUiJO* A fine fellow our boss, and it came as a revelation to me to learn what an. 'in- terest he takes in our welfare. It. hap pened thus: A few days ago a couple of workmates and I were seated enjoying our few minutes', spell at midday. We had finished, lunch and my mates were discussing the pros and cons of the O.B.U. I was eagerly devouring the pages of my bible ''('The Worker'). It was slightly on the chilly side, and I had donned my coat. In the lapel .of ~my. coat I wear a button with a' red flag, and the letters 'O.B.U.' on it. ' Along came the' boss. .He was passing, heard part of the argument, and on coming closer had noted the paper and the button. 'What's the argument, boys? *The O.B.U. is it? Well, surely to goodness you men don't favor' a hare-brained' scheme, like that. Why, the promoters are only on the make. They have their eye on the good, fat billets, and what will you fellows get out of it? Nothing! You'll have to pay the piper, and everything will be in a st...

Russian Women* . It ia nothing new for the daily papers ;to contain cabled statements ot Russian atrocities, some at them most gruesome and revolting in their details. - On Tues day morning: -18y2/'t9) the Sydney dailies .contained- a statement under big head lines that tbs Soviet of Kronatad* had de creed all women, between the ages of 17 and 32 ta be puttie property, and a whole Jot of objeetlonabte details of the method of operating- this eoauaxan- ownership were gives.. Kronatadt fe: a Wg seaport and naval statieiv and in all prebabfitty the only foundation for this story win be found hereafter to be regulations concerning the control of immoral women.

Mmm! mz^r OJean Ships and Others. According to their own yarn, the New South Wales Ministers are glad to wel come a clean ship -when one is declared so by the Health authorities. The people of the Stale feel Hke that, too; but, Lord, I 'what will their welcome be for a clean .IBreaiier-ship when one comes along! You often hear it discussed nowadays whether Wade or Hohnan had made the worse showing; and, curiously enough, 'the feel iag seems general that the old leg- iron manipulator was better than the modern ? master of fence. You always knew what I .Wade was; but Willie is painted to look ? like nothing-in-particular in a sea of eter ? nal sham. I ? ? ? ?

Holman, a Jerrymanderer. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 22 February 1919
Holman, a Jerrymanderer. According to the capitalistic press Hol man is resting at Mt. Wilson, and he is expected to return to Sydney fully pre pared to face his enemies of the Labor Party at the forthcoming elections. What's wrong with Holman? What is the nature of his illness — if any? Is it not a cloak to gull the public an* hide from the electors the real reason for Holman's holiday? Reports are ' circulating to the effect that the 'Knash' Premier is busily occu pied at Mt. Wilson recasting the elec torates to meet 'Knash' requirements at the next elections. . On his return the scheme will be banded to the Electoral Committee for its. formal assent, and then issued as the result of their deliberations. i The whole scheme is worthy of that arch-political jerrymandering traitor, Holman, and his hypocritical gang of flag-flapping supporters.

Nikolai Redivivus. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 22 February 1919
?» : '' . . — ' — Nikolai Redivivus. The poor old Russian Czar Nicholas, who has been murdered several times, and each* time in a different way, and also his wife and daughters, who - on some occa sions have been murdered with him, and sometimes on their own, are once again alive and well. Nikey is said to be imprisoned in the Kremlin, the famous Royal palace, in Mos cow, in which Napoleon camped the night the city was fired by the inhabitants in 1812. Mrs. Romanoff, otherwise ' the Czarina, is about 40 miles away in a mon astery, keeping house with her several times murdered daughters. To give a new turn to this serial Dead wood Dicker, it is added that Lenin, the ferocious Bolshevik leader, has promised to give Nickey back his throne when he has finished exterminating the middle class or bourgeois. Quite recently it was stated that Lenin and Trotsky had quarrelled, and Trotsky had Lenin put Jnto clink, Possibly Lenin and Nickey got into the same prison and struck up a friendship. ...

THE CANKER WORM. ? jffTrlt'ten expressly for the 'Labor News' by MARION GARNAM. No. IV. Man's inhumanity to man! What a 'world of meaning is expressed in these few words. What a pity that this shouW be when one little touch of sympathy could make the whole world kin. It is the willingness of the worker to obey the call of the capitalist that keeps us where we are. If Fat very often had to do his own dirty work it would not be done at all. But there is bo need for Mm to come in direct contact with disagreeable things, the pooiv underpaid marionette will do it. The bailiff will, for 6/- per day, strip a wor&ar's home of ali it possesses in' the interest of Fat. The hangman, for the sake of a few pounds, will draw the belt oh all and sundry.

IMPERIALISM AND INTERNATIONALISM. ??...?..'..'-. - ?-'?? .'??—.-;??,-?- ? ' '? ? ?-?.'' :';?# Whilst . the proposals' that armaments, should be cut down, that secret treaties should be abrogated, and the business of munition making taken out of private hands will meet with the general approval 9f International Socialists, yet the great est vigilance needs to be exercised to pre vent Imperialists just now using interna tional phrases to cover imperialistic de signs. If the above-mentioned reforms are to be accomplished by a fraternity 6f free nations mutually agreeing to these safeguards in order to prevent future wars, all will be well— but if even these highly desirable things, which all Social ists approve of, are to be gained only by the setting up of a new dynasty, in the shape of a few super- nations forming a world trust, then there is the greatest danger that a new Imperialism may come into being which will make real demo cracy impossible. .
