HOW TO ABOLISH THE HOUSE OF FAT. MORE WAYS THAN ONE. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 22 February 1919

HOW TO ABOLISH THE HOUSE OF FAT. MORE WAYS THAN ONE. In our last issue some reasons were given, why the State Legislative Councils , should be ahdfjahe$.

THe Patience That Wins. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 22 February 1919

The Patience That Wins. The cabled statement that Foch entered into the ? armistice ._ arrangements with great reluctance may or may not be true. It is quite possible that, as the cables claim, he was at that time capable of delivering a knock-out blow which would have enormously increased the miseries of the German, while, of course, causing a proportional amount of orphans' tears in France, England, Australia and else where. Wilson's determination to secure the speediest possible ending of the conflict caused the suspension of bloodshed and the consequent prolonged blowing of tin trumpets in Sydney. But the people who helped to make the war, though satisfied then, profess to be disgusted to-day. The simple humanity which, while administer ing a licking, refuses to further kick the defeated when he is down, is unknown to these folk. The longer the war continued tho longer the profiteering would go un checked; and any horror or suffering on either side was, in their view, justified ...

FOR PROFIT OR USE WHICH? [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 22 February 1919

©F& USE WHICH? ' The cause of unemployment is the; . private ownership of the means of life. As - long as this cause remains so long will there be thousands unemployed. ? * * When- slavery was rife throughout the world, the master owned the worker and bought and sold him afe goods. The Capitalist master does not trouble to own the worker. He owns the job. And the worker pays him for the privilege of 1 being allowed to live. And yet many workers are opposed to Socialism. . ? * ? The average man to-day has little time for anything but getting a job and holding it when he gets it — and he's lucky if he holds it. The human race cannot make much progress towards an ideal society under such conditions. ? ? * In the new social order which is coming: 'after the war,' less labor and more leisure must be insisted on by the work ers. The body and soul-destroying re sults of long hours of toil' are now recog nised. It is our common experience that men and women 'have no time' when re qu...

A Political Chameleon. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 22 February 1919

A Political Chameleon. Beeby, N.S.W. Minister for Labor, who joined the body-snatching brigade with such enthusiasm at the time of the con scription referendums, has been posing as an anti-conscriptionist and anti-militarist, etc. He is at present taking a rest from his Ministerial duties, and Incidentally, also, a trip round the world at the expense of cue long-suirermg taxpayers oi jn.s.vv. On his arrival in New York he, like all peregrinating politicians, felt it abso lutely necessary that he should tell Americans just what Australia stood for. Speaking in reference to the Pacific Islands, he said: — 'Australia's real concern was for a peace which would lead to the abolition of conscript armies, progressive disarma ment, and the prevention of future . eco nomic wars.' Truly a fine sentiment; but coming1 from a man who has proved himself a conscriptionist and Prussianlst'. of the worst type— simply empty words. Right here it may be asked, in view of the * increasing virulence of t...

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

Returned Soldiers and Unionism. ' The 'Returned Sailors and Soldiers* . Ship and Wharf Workers' Union' is an organisation not quite so big as its own name, but it is reaching out. for more members by circularising their fellow 'Diggers.' j They say In this circular, which con^ tains the address but no name of any offi-, cial, that they 'are not a scab union.' : .,, . 5 Well, if so why are they given a guar antee 'of plenty of work' by the Oversea Shipping Companies while old and tried wharf laborers, whose sons and brothers fought and died at the Front, are shut out? What of their own statement, 'At pre-'' sent there is a shortage of labor, and only returned soldiers can get a working disc'? Is that square dinkum? Also, is there any instance on record where the organised employers give one organisation prefer ence over another unless to serve their own greedy ends' by using those prepared to do their dirty work for the Judas re ward of a few pieces of silver? ?' .

IL While I repeat that I hail with en- ] thusiasm the advent of the new movement, I feel that he would be but a poor student of our own history who could regard it wholly without misgivings. The very fervor of the idealism inspiring its pro moters is a danger. It walks confessedly somewhat in the clouds, but we Austra lians, in common with other branches of the Anglo-Saxon race, are painfully prac tical people. To the rank and file, I sus pect, . the project will ' commend itself chiefly as a more economical and efficient weapon — as indeed it is — ror wresting from the master class higher wages and better conditions. But if these alone are the objects of the mass of ' its constituents, ; the new organisation, for all its paper strength and solidarity, will forget its ideals in the struggle for those very- palliatives which its preamble condemn...

SPORTING NOTES NOTIONS [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 22 February 1919

m^ j^BK^g^^^^^ Af/n-iosf^ I A rather smart trick was played not ?so long ago oi^ a well-known firm of ? horse salesmen! A certain shrewd battler ? ''got wise' to the fact that a racehorse I of which he entertained a very high opln jion could be purchased for a hundred ' r.otes. He, himself, owned a- rather good looking, but useless, prad, which a few benevolent friends were feeding. He wanted the other horse badly, but all the -money he could rake up was twenty-five. go he prepared his 'meal ticket' for the H&Jeyard; introduced himself to the firm lend placed a1 reserve of £100 on it. A pal came along, bid the reserve, paid a de posit -with the owner's twenty-five notes, ' and arranged to pay the balance and take .delivery of the horse next day. Shortly [after the sale was thus effected the I owner dropped in at the office. 'Excuse [ me, Mr. So-and-So,' said he, 'I'm off to f Wagga to-night.

KNOWLEDGE^B POWm PUBLIC LIBRARY OF N.S.W. Corner Bent and Mapquarie streets.) H. G. WELLS AND OTHERS,— THE GREAT STATE. It is remarkable how few there, are Amongst all classes of people in Australia who read anything beyond their daily newspapers. They are dependent on these for the opinions expressed by advanced social thinkers, and are often entirely ignorant of what such thinkers really mean, and what groups of reformers adopt as their cure for evils existing in the pre sent capitalistic state of society. The Australian Labor Party has suffered most from ignorance and deliberate distortion of its alms, and Is more ; interested than its opponents in advocating a wider snd clearer knowledge of social conditions and opinions of advanced thinkers. Many authors have written books in order to describe an ideal comraunis=ti3 so ciety, to present the main outline of a new social regime which alms at secur ing the highest welfare of all mankind.

Correspondence. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 1 March 1919

Correspondence. Sir,— It is alleged that the Meat Board of New South Wales is on the verge of entering into another secret contract for the supply of rabbits to the Imperial Go vernment. This seems strange in view of the fact that certain firms to which were allotted the greater portion of the 1918 contract by the same Board nave not- yet com pleted their quota, and in some cases, I hear, are negotiating for the cancellation of the non-fulfilled portion of that con tract on the grounds that it would entail a serious monetary loss. It is also strange that the small firms of packers and exporters who faithfully fulfilled their obligations in the last con tract are being kept strictly in the dark in respect to the Board's movements* There should not be any further secret arrangements between the Meat Board and a few favored exporters. Every effort should be made to en courage the rabbit trade which, in conse quence of its importance as a food sup ply, and the avenues of (employment it ...

The following extracts from the 'New Statesman,' London, shows the increase1 of the annual income, and at the same time indicates to whom the increase has gone: 'The annual income of the United King dom has increased from 2000 million pounds to 4000 million pounds.

BARON EMMOTT, speaking in the House of Lords on the present industrial struggle in Great Britain, said: 'He was convinced that the TOTAL EXCESS PROFIT uaid to the WEALTHIER CLASSES did not exceed ONE HUN '. DRED; MILLION POUNDS (£100,000,000). On the -^ther hand, WAGES had doubled, and the WORKERS WERE RECEIV ING between SEVEN HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND POUNDS AND ONE MILLION.

Forestry Department and the Capitalists. To the Editor, "Labor News." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 1 March 1919

Forestry Department and the Capitalists. To the Editor, 'Labor News.' Sir,— I quite agree with your CofTs Harbor correspondent that the Forestry Department capitalists are making hay while the sun shines. Down on the Hast ings and Manning Rivers,, and on the Eastern ranges, the wholesale grabbing of timber is so exciting that people are asking the cause for depleting the forests. The only answer is: 'The Labor Party will soon be in. power. Let them plant more trees; it only takes sixty years for them to mature.' For this great national loss we have to pay three imported men, com missioned from Old England, £3000 a year. Australians were not good enough, not even soldiers. During the inquiry before the Federal Commissioner recently it was shown that the timber capitalists refused to sell timber to everyone, and their pro fits were something near 300 per cent, thanks to the Forestry Department giving them every access to the people's pro perty. Manning River. . ? H. KENDALL.
