BLACK LABOUR AND THE FARMERS. A North Queensland Farmer on the Colour Question. TO THE EDITOR: [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 28 May 1892

-MACK UOQUB ^D4HHA8MEfiS A Worth Queensland Fanner on the Colour Question. -TO THB EDITOE : -. Sir—As a North Queensland-fanner I should like to address a few words to your readers on the coloured labour question. The presence of the black and yellow agony in the 'North in such considerable numbers has almost entirely eliminated the white farmer. The Hon. A. S. Cowley whilst touring in the North a few months ago remarked that 'on all the farms he visited he saw but one white man working and even he was --working with several blacks' [vide Queenslander report). Of those few of us left a large minority, though perhaps once ' white' meu, dis heartened by the uphill tight; are now thoroughly ' black,' and hope for nothings 'better 'than 1o~see 'such a~ quantity of coloured labour imported as shall enable them to make a rise out of the increased value of their land and then clear out of the colony leaving posterity to figbt it out. — I 4ieed -hardly— tell— yea that what— are ? termed the...

BYSTANDER'S NOTEBOOK ? *_ ? . Deeming has been hung. Whereat all ' those ^vho have _* touch of the Deeming bloodthirat are rubbing their \ deeming hands and smacking their lips ; hcxg. whereat also from press and pul pit rises the solemn chant — ' This will he a warninff.' And vnt t.tmi-A ian't the slightest doubt— to any who jook-at life broadly and at man as a social animal —that Deeming was mad and that the jubilant ..-have been jnbilating -over the dying writhing of a wretched madman and that the solemn fools who talk of warning are -stirring up the mud of a growing mania which won't settle down through gallows . traps. This Deeming was as mad as a hatter and none the less mad because there was method in his madness. — From every egotistic act of his, and every egotistic speech, and every egotistic thought, mad ness gleams. From his strange brutality, his ucconsciousjying, his variable Tiature, ? bis utter misconception of his position, wit ness rises for him which comforts us w...

Editor's letter Box. Dennis Lin,ehan, Brisbane : All right : we'll agree to disagree ; it's probably good for us all that we don't all think alike.

THE CARDINAL AND THE AGITATOR. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 28 May 1892

THE CARDINAL AND THE AGITATOR. Some months ago a letter sent by Cardi nal Moran to Secretary W. H. McNamara* of the Sydney Unemployed Committee, was largely reprinted by the press through out Australasia. The reason of this re urintinsr was simply that the cardinal went out of his way to belittle the unem ployed agitation and to grossly insult McNamara, who was for years secretary of the Australian Socialist League. For equally good reasons the reply the cardinal got was smothered by the free and inde pendent press to such an extent that it has only just come to hand. Whether it was a 'fair reply and entitled to reproduction by those who reproduced the cardinal's tirade, readers of the Worker can judge. Here it is: TO CARDINAL MORAN : Sitr- As you have thought fit to severely condemn the great majority of the men whom I lately represented as "professional unemployed, the aim of whose leaders is to bring discredit on the cause of honest   labour, and whose endeavour it i...
