'Vive Anarchy'
E.J. Brady

(first published as, eg. in the Australian Workman'; later published as 'A vision of the Future', e.g., in the (Brisbane) Worker' March 7, 1891.

Early on a republican and literary-bohemian, he became known in later life for travel books and poetry before returning to labor writing and communism in the 1930's.

In the period 1890-92, the evidence suggests that he dabbled in revolution, dynamite and conspiracies and then became either a police-spy or, at best, a reactionary reporter damming what he had once believed. The reasons for the change appear to be an exaggerated ego, disillusion with labor-leaders and domestic upheavals.
