AN AUSTRALIAN REVOLUTIONARY. SYDNEY, January 4. Mr O'Sullivan, genera! secretary of the Railway Workers' General Laborer’s’ Association, in his report to the .sixth annual conference, severely criticises the action of certain organisations in refusing to work with enemy' subjects. ’Hie executive discountenanced tho action in the strongest possible terms as being a violation of'the spirit of unionism. It .might appropriately bo termed organised inhumanity enacted under tho guise of pseudo-patriotism. There was no room in tho ranks of unionism for a, display of racial spleen. A man’s worth a« a citizen and a unionist was not determined by bis nationality, any more than his religion or tho color of his hair. The President, iu opening the conference. stated that sooner or later all unions would extend their functions in tho direction of tho management of industry.
