Labor Accidents. [Newspaper Article] — People — 17 August 1901
Labor Accidents. An .employer had in his shop some flour belonging to another man. The flour became spoiled. When the time came for settling accounts the employer said : ' It is spoiled. I will not pay for it.' 'But, on the contrary,' replied the other, 'it was in your care ; if it is spoiled you must settle the bill just; the same.' And the law compelled him to pay' for it, . Now i he employer had a man in his care, a laborer, who worked for him in his faotory. A machine tore off an arm and knocked out an eye of tbe working man. The law compelled the employer to pay for the flour that was spoiled, but not for the workman who was disabled or killed. — ' Sampre Avanti,' Turin, Italy.

KERNELS. [Newspaper Article] — People — 17 August 1901
KERNELS. Sixty-three thousand children in the reconcentrado camps of South Africa constitute a portion of '? the enemy ' npon whom the ' brave ' British Boldiers are making war. Class-conscious clearness in a i workineman's mind will nroteot him against being taken in by traitors. He will quickly detect the cloven hoof even under the most seductive cover. He who who starts a fight must be manly enongh not to yell 'murder' when he gets the worst of it. 'Work ' is not the feature of the Working Class: Indeed, more and more of them are being thrown out of work with increasing fre quency. ' Work ' is the result of the feature of the Working Class. That feature iB the absence of the wherewithal to exert their labor power with. The feature of the Working Class is that, being stripped of the necessary capital on whioh to work, they are compelled to sell themselves into wage slavery,, where the bulk of the fruits of their toil goes to the employer. Owing to our removal, we are unable to dea...

High Panjandrums at Work. [Newspaper Article] — People — 17 August 1901
High Panjandrums at I Work. Whw the Domain is to Sydney the Islington Reset ve is to New castle and district, and for years meetings have been held there with out interruption. Some four years ago an attempt was made to stifle meetings in Liambton Park — bnt the Socialists took the matter no and made it a test question, with the result that the writer and another were prosecuted by the Lambton Mayor after a bitter fight in the council, where the Mayor's acton was only upheld by bis own casting vote. When the matter came before the Court, Magistrate Payten decided in favor of the Socialists on some five or six points, the principal of which was that the by-law under ' which the council prosecuted was ultra vires. Now, the trustees of the Islington Reserve appear to be de'ermined to make an attempt to demonstrate how ridiculous petty-minded people can be when they find themselves clothed with a little brief au thority. The following let ter, written last Sunday to the managing editor ...

No; he is fighting for fl the Stock Exchange, the great fl Anglo-Jewish mine-owners, the fl Hoodlams, Yahoos, and Hooligans 8 in the street, who have not the fl ghf at of a notion of what the war is fl about, bnt whose gross nature de fl lights in fighting and the other in fl stinots of wild beasts. — 'Rey- fl nolds's.' fl Silence and disaster. still in fl Soath Africa!

INTOLERANT TACTICS. (Adapted.) In the usnal practice of thought, under existing conditions, wherein every proposition submitted to us ia , open to the suspicion that it is in some way grounded in fraudulent economic interests of some one or some class, when discussing a ques tion of whioh little is known or which may be largely misunder stood, it seems necessary to first of all establish tbe credibility of the witnesn It almost invariably hap pens that when discussing Different phases of Socialist thonght and proposed practice with those who are imbued with the idea of finality of tbe present condition of existence and of industry, we meet with the shrug of the shoulders, the mild Btare or smile of incredulous amuse ment that --ayp, as plainly as words could express it, you are a member of the Socialist Labor Party and are therefore talking from a prejudiced point of view. We will admit right here that in a great many in stances of human thought this rea soning is perfectly correct....

WHERE THE GEESE GATHER. [Newspaper Article] — People — 17 August 1901
WHERE THE GEESE GATHER. £20,000 was the amount the Government was authorised to spend on the Commonwealth Drunk. £113,732 9s. 7d. (to 30th June last) is the amount expended. So Mr. Waddell told the House the other week. Of course, that is the offi cial amount. The actual amount would probably reach £200,000 if all legitimates charges were added. L383.443 2s. 5d. was the cost to N.S.W. of sending troops to par ticipate in the South African Bri gandage. Where did tbe money come from ? Why, out of the Con solidated Revenu®, of course. The governing clasy in this province only objects to money coming out of the Consolidated Revenue foij snoh purposes as free education. Killing and looting for profit is quite another matter. Mr. Waddell, in reply to Mr, Neil sen. admitted that the Railway Commissioners paid less than the 7s minimum, but pointed out that that Tartarean Trintnvirate paid ' the average rate of wages found to be prevailing in private estab lishments.' It was also pointed out...
