Wheat or Flour—Which? [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 1 March 1919

Wheat or Flour— Which? Reams of paper have been covered with nk over the ? question - whether wheat should be exported in bags or in bulk; This scribe has grown a bit of wheat in two .States, but does not pose as an sxpert on this vexed question. The point that seems om infinitely more importance is why we should export any wheat at all, either in bags, in bulk, or otherwise. Of course we do not wish to keep our surplus wheat rotting in stacks or feeding weevils and mice while men and women and little children in other lands are starv ing for lack of bread. What I have asked again and again is, v/hy not grind our wheat and export the surplus in the shape of flour? We already export some flour, why not export more? There can be no great difficulty in keep ing flour in good condition on fairly long; sea voyages, because I remember when neither New Zealand nor Australia grew enough wheat for their own requirements. In those days steam sti^s were very rare, and sailing vessels brought f...

Engel's Remarkable Prophecy. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 1 March 1919

Engel's Remarkable Prophecy. Frederick Engels, the collaborator of Marx, uttered a prediction in the year 1887 as to the results of a European war, and it seems that we are well on the way to realise it. 'From eight to ten millions of soldiers will engage in mutual slaughter, and will swallow up the food stocks of Europe as no swarm of hosts has done before. The devastation of the Thirty Years' War will be pressed into three or four years, and will spread over . the whole continent. There will be famine, epidemic and a general brutalisation both of armies and peoples called forth by extreme want. It is' absolutely impossible to foresee how it all will end, and who will come vic torious out of the struggle. Yet we may ba sure of one ihing, and that is: a general exhaustion, will ensue and'^khe conditions for the final victory of the working-class will be established. Per- 1 haps the war will forc6 us to take a back seat for a while, and -deprive us of posi tions we have conquered. Bi...

The City Council. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 1 March 1919

The City Council. It was understood that the Lord Mayor! (Alderman John English) would be able to take the chair at the meeting of the Sydney Municipal Council on Tuesday, evening last. However, he was, unfortunately, again too ill to attend, and. owing to the ab-: sence of a couple of other supporters when the meeting began, our opponents,' having a majority, put Sir Allen Taylor, the big timber magnate and arch enemy ofi Labor, in the presiding position. It is regrettable that Labor, having secured control of the municipal functions of the city, should have its- programme held up by any laxity on the part of the Labor contingent, 'whose numbers, being; so nearly even, leave no margin for ab-4 senteeism.

Moral Support. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 1 March 1919

Moral Support. Lloyd George, during the Peace Confer ence discussions, let a particularly dis reputable cat out of the diplomatic bag in a, most incautious manner. When the question of intervention in Russia was under consideration the British Prime Minister said that a formal declaration of war against the Russian Revolutionists was out of the question in the face of strong -public opinion in England against such a step. Then he went on to say that although Britain was not formally at war with the Soviet Government of Russia, yet a large sum of English money has been expended in furnishing ''arms, ammuni tion and moral support' to the antiRevo lutionists. The supply of arms and am munition can be taken for granted. Brit ish armament makers have always been ready to do business with any customers who can pay for implements of destruc tion, but the 'moral support' item is a most interesting one. Unfortunately there will never be a balance sheet'issued show ing the precise details of ...

Preference to Fat. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 1 March 1919

Preference to Fat. While believing that preference is the one thing worth fighting for when re lated to employment, it is another thing when preference is given to one set of voters to the detriment of another sec tion. Last week it was desired by those conducting racing in the 18ft. class to hold a benefit race to assist a number of supporters from Queensland who were stranded owing to the plague. Permis sion was asked and obtained from the powers that be to hold the fixture. On applying to the ferry company for steam ers to carry patrons intending to witness the race, the sailing men were told that they had instructions to cancel all steamer engagements. This led to a depu tation to that blubbery individual who, by one of destiny's kinks, is in charge of Health matters in this misgoverned State. In the meantime the two toney yacht clubs which have the handle 'Royal' as a prefix to their respective titles were in a fix; they, too, were denied the use of steamers to entertain their ...

in Memoriam: Thomas Atkins. "HE DIED FOR HIS COUNTRY." [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 1 March 1919

In Memoriam: Thomas Atkins. 'HE DIED FOR HIS COUNTRY.^ Comrades, what was 'His Country'* For which he fought and died? Did he -own farm or homestead On fertile country side? Did his country offer him learning In her shrines of classic lore? Did she assure him leisure To garner his mental store? As a child, had he food and shelter While thews and brains grew strong? Or had 'he to work as men work Who fight in the struggling throng'? Why should he' die for a country Which bought in the open mart' His labor, his whole life's effort. His body, mind and heart?. , - Comrades, he was a hero! He fought for a Hope, for a DreamJ He died for an 'Ideal Country,' For the land of the Poet's theme. He died because Kings are fighting JPor what they call 'Balance of fbwer'; But the People must hold that Balance! , . And he died for that Day and that HoW, r-pora. B. Monteflore, in British 'CalL'

Returned Soldiers and Their Treatment by the Nationalists. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 1 March 1919

Returned Soldiers and Their Treatment by the Nationalists. A meeting of protest against the treat ment now being meted out to returned soldiers has been convened for Sunday, March 2, at 3 p.m., in the Sydney Domain. Many prominent Labor leaders will ad dress the meeting. The war has been won and the services of the men are no longer required; hence the reason for the change in the methods adopted regarding those men who have risked their lives and limbs in the defence of liberty and democracy. The general public have long been noted for the shortness of their memories, but the scandalous manner in which returned soldiers are now being treated should arouse them to a sense of their responsi bilities towards these men to whom Aus tralia owes so much. The conditions under which men are now being shipped by the authorities back to Australia, many of them still suffering from the effects of wounds received on the field of battle, call for the strongest protest. Also the methods of quaran...

[?] Big Robbery. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 1 March 1919

m^mm mp^c Big Robbery. i In earlier Sydney days a brilliant band \-t robbers made a hole under the Bank jot-New South Wales and nearly succeeded in extracting the contents. At a still taore remote period the gallant Colonel tBlOod put the crown of England under his arm, walked out of the Tower of Lon tfldli with it, and was only arrested when halfway tat^^^sUojp^witb the glitter i lnifeprize. Theft, if attempted on a bis enough scale, has a splendid look. When Morgan stole the city of Panama from the Spaniards, and looted it to the last gold safety-pin, even kings sat back and laughed their applause. But none of these jexploits compare with the great robbery of Australia through the incidence of the Federal Income Tax. The question is, how much of the poor man's savings will the Confusion get away with before it is arrested at the polls? i And that's the pretty mess of shame and misery and big dividends for individuals ithat Billy Hughes would ask White Aus tralia to father. i .. * ...

No Compromise. LIEBKNECHT BEFORE THE WAR AND AFTER. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 1 March 1919

No Compromise. LIEBKNECHT BEFORE THE WAR AND AFTER. . - When the war' was- on, jtfae press, of Capitalism showed how the autocracy of Germany had imprisoned Dr. KarJ.,Lieb knecht on account of his persistent and consistent anti-war attitude and riv&u- tionary propaganda. The press told you uuiniuuy mat LiiebKnecht was the leader of the real 'dinkum'» Socialists of Ger many. It even eulogised him on account o' his stand for principle. You read part of his speeches in the German Reichstag, where he condemned the Kaiser and the Imperialists of Germany. He attempted to show the workers that they had no thing to fight for, and called upon all the workers in the trenches to stop the war and go home. The press at that same period showed you, and correctly, too, that the men parading under the guise of So cialism, such- as Ebert and Scheidemann, were on the side of the Imperialists, and had deserted, the workers and their cause. This was true, quite true. THE JINGO'S MIND CHANGES. T...

Who Plotted the War? [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 1 March 1919

Who Plotted the War? Lloyd George declared at Newcastle on Tyne that: 'Unless someone is held re sponsible for the war, which has taken of the best of the youngr men of Europe, it will mean one justice for the- wretched crjmmal and another for kings and em perors. Whoever plotted the war and out raged international law and humanity ought to be held responsible.' They ought! Let us therefore begin straight away. First of all we must have a tribunal, international in character. The jurists must be chosen not from either side; they must beneutrai, and must be men of unimpeachable charactejv-therg are such. Then the accused must be placed In the dock. It goes without say ing that the Kaiser must be thereF/ but he must be supported by others, perhaps not less guilty. Nor must the indictment be confined to royalty. Royalties are bad enough and useless enough, but as a rule have not the brains to be mischievous. They are usually puppets in the hands of diplomats who pull the strings and se...

Deregistered Unions. AN IMPORTANT JUDGMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 1 March 1919

Deregistered Unions. AN IMPORTANT JUDGMENT. An important case affecting the liability of members of Trades Unions which had been deregistered to pay their subscrip tions was decided last week. The Full Bench of the Court of Indus-' trial Arbitration, consisting of Judges Ed munds, Rolin, and Curlewis, unanimously decided that members must pay up and look pleasant. The case was brought on by Claude Thompson, General Secretary of the Amalgamated Railway and Tramway Ser vice Association. This Union was de registered under the Arbitration Act for taking part in the Big Strike of 1917, but continued to be a Union under the Trades Union Act. George Young, a signalman, was sued by the A.R. and T.S. Association for arrears and judgment was given for the amount; claimed. Although several points were raised by . the defendant's counsel, the Court did not even call upon the Union's counsel to address the Court.
