STROGGLBS OP A BRITISH JODSNAL I' Uses, ' a bright little British monthly, has become defunot for financial -reasons, -and Mr T.-D. ' Benson (the editor) writes the Bon. Benjamin Backhouse, M L.G., as follows oonoerning the causes that led np to the final abandonment of the publication : 'It was with extreme regret that it was given - np. The chief reason was the trouble that I have had at home for Bome 18 months past. Mrs. Benson broke down with nervous depression. I my- elf broke do*n twice daring the 12 months with hemorrhage of the lnnga. At the beginning of this year all my six children broke the monotony with an attack of whoop ing congh, and Mrs. Benson be came correspondingly worse. In addition, business was causing me aome anxiety, and I felt I had a« mnoh as I could carry without the anxiety of 'Uses.' As to the financial part, I have carried it practically from the beginning. I knew it could not pay when I started it, and the annual loss haa been between £40 and £50 to me...

Japan under Capitalism. [Newspaper Article] — People — 10 August 1901

Japan under Capitalism. The Japanese Socialist ' Labour Wot Id ' for May contains a pitifnl account of the system of girl slavery which has followed the in troduction of the faotory s stem of Western civilisation into that coun try. The writer deals specifically with the case of some 15,000 women and girls who are employed in the silk industry in the prefec ture of Nagano, which is noted for its silk.- E ch factory engages from 50 to 500 hands. In order to get cheap workers, the masters em ploy the meanest artifices to obtain girls from the rural districts. The farmers are deluded by glowing stories of good wages to sign con tracts handing over their daughters to the agents. The girls are then shipped in gangs like African slaves, and brought to the factory to complete the contracts. Brought to the factories the girls are subjected to horrible con ditions.

LAW-BREAKER CROUPACE. AND THE BURWOOD COLLIERY. GOV. WON'T PROSECUTE. [Newspaper Article] — People — 10 August 1901

[?] AND THEBURWOOD 5 - COiLIERY. GOV. WON'T PROSECUTE. THE Coal Mines Regulation Act Amendment Act has been on the Statute! book of this colony for quite a number of years now ; and it is an historical fact that, whether Mr. Sydney Smith, or Mr. 'Joseph Cook, or Mr. John Lionel Fegan, or Mr. John Kidd, occupied the departmental chair, the Act has at all times been shamefully maladministered. For some three years the 1p w - or rather that portion of it affecting the owners — was deliberately sus pended to suit the convenience of people whose wealth and class position alone saved them from prosecution. The pretensions of administering the Act that were made from time were only made because of the constant demands of the C.E.F., backed up by the repeated attackrof The PEOPLE. Three years were allowed to elapse before the owners were compelled to erect proper weigh ing appliances ; and now, alter five years, at a number of col lieries, and more notably at the Burwood Colliery, the law i...

THAT MINIMUM WAGE. [Newspaper Article] — People — 10 August 1901

THAT MINI WC1W WASB. At its meeting o£ last week Syd ney Labor Conncil had before it a letter from the kindred body in Sonth Australia, requesting par ticulars concerning the amount paid by the N.B.W. Goverment ment as a minimum wage. It would appear that over there they are endeavoring to have a minimum wage fixed, and are foolishly using N S.W. as an il lustration of the prosperity to be secured by a move in this direc tion. There is, however, a dis pute between a Mr. Roberts and a Minister as to the amount paid here. And Mr. O'Sullivan has written over to the effect that the Government here is paying a minimum of seven shillings Mr. O Sullivan's statement is made to the workers of South Australia for a purpose, no doubt ; but it is not altogether a tribute to Mr. O'Sullivan's veracity that within seven days of the time that a copy of his letter was before the Labor Council, Mr. Wise should tell a Sydney Chamber of Commerce gathering that the N.S.W. mini mum was not 7s, but 5s.

Did Mr. Wright Speak the Truth? [Newspaper Article] — People — 10 August 1901

Did Mr. Wright Speak the Truth ? Not even Mr Wright's offer to give the Tailoresses' Union £10 should prevent the members of that body from enquiring into tho statements, made on oath by Mr. Wright before the Vic. Bojal Commission.

SWEATING ON THE WHARVES. BY N.S.W. GOVERNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — People — 17 August 1901

SWEATING OR THE WHARVES. ? ? ? I BY N.«.W. GOVERNMENT. IP onr issue of October 7, 1899, . we dealt strongly 'with the system cf sweating imposed by the New South Wales Government on the men working as ' watchmen' on ^ the Sydney wharves. At that time the watchmen were directly employed by the Government. and our exposures and strictures resulted in Several small conces sions being made them. Now they work nnder the direction of the Harbor Trust, and their work ing day is spread over TWELVE HOURS. As they work Sundays and all holidays, their week consists of M.hours for which they receive 49s — and because they are in re ceipt of this amount it has been argued that they receive the 7s a day minimum, although.it only amountB to 7d per hour. Even this is an improvement on pre vious conditions, for, previous to our '99 exposures, the rate of pay only amounted to 5£d per hour. Another concession which re sulted from our efforts at that time was the granting of six weeks' holiday each yea...
