AMERICAN S.L.P. TENTH ANNUAL CONTENTION. OFFICIAL REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — People — 17 August 1901
AMBRienR S.L.P. I TENTH ANNUAL CONVEN TION. OFFICIAL REPORT. I Wi are in receipt of the ' Proceed I ings of the Tenth National Conven tion of the Socialist Labor Party.' I This book is a remarkably interestng and instructive contribution to cur rent literature on the Labor Move ment. The late Popnlist uprising, the more recent ' Debs Movement,' the many Utopian measures that are flaring up, the hopeless grasping after ' something now ' that cha racterizes these efforts— all these features make the present period of the Labor Movement in America a critical one. The Socialist Labor Party does } not waste its energy in the vain straggle after ' something now ' Its mission, ia, rather, to educate the Working Class in the principles of Socialism to the point where thej. will march to the ballot-box as a class, annihilate tbe capitalist sys tem of production, with its useless i capitalist class on the one hand and i its drudging working class on the other, and proclaim the Socialist Repub...

LABOR VOICELESS. [Newspaper Article] — People — 24 August 1901
LABOR VOICELESS. We abily enough, the Federal Par liament is dragging oat its sittings ; drearily the State Parliaments are doing likewise. In all the legisla tures — Federal and State — the main characteristic is the almost complete absence of any intelligent attempt to voice the demands of the workers as a class. In the Federal Par liament, important measures have been discussed ; Forrest's Conscrip tion Bill has been before the Lower House, and also the Postal and Customs Bill. A Queenslander made a decent speech on the former measure ; on the latter no expres- j eion of working-class opinion has been given. True, 'Labor' men have spoken, bnt their speaking has been confined to a participation in the wrangle over the fiscal ques tion. And so it haB been with every discussion that has taken place ; speech making haB been lengthy enough, and mnoh time has been frittered away, bat the voice of honest Labor has not been heard within the Federal halls. In the N.S.W State Parliament th...
SWEATING IN THE CLOTHING TRADE. SOME POINTS TO BE NOTED. [Newspaper Article] — People — 24 August 1901
Sweating in the CLOTHING TRADE. SOME POINTS TO BE NOTED. As trade-unionists, railway ser* vice workers must' refuse to wear uniforms made under sweated con ditions. At the taiioresses' meeting last week, Hollis, M.L.A., said he had not previously been aware of the sweating conditions under whioh the women worked. Yet for years Hollis has been secretary of the Railway Union, and the nniforms made for the unionists in the rail way service are made by the sweated labour of these women. Hollis himself has worn the sweated-made clothing, yet believer troubled him self to discover whether the uni forms were made by union labour or not. Since The People made its first exposure of the false evidence given before the Victorian Royal Com mission, and the awful conditions existing in the clothing trade, quite a number of tbe capitalistic papers have taken up the cry, and are now out vigorously hnnting for ' copy.' Mr. Mark Foy has been inter viewed by the ' D T,' and ' ex pressed his sympathy ...
SQUELCHING FREE SPEECH, AT ISLINGTON. [Newspaper Article] — People — 24 August 1901
S&OBLeillNG FREE SPEECH, AT ISLINGTON. Several correspondents have wrkteu ns, sBkiag for advice con cerning the action of the Wickham Council in preventing public speak ing on the reserve, and one of tbe people concerned announces that they, defeated the Council 'by speaking from pri?a?e property within the park.' Now; the real position is this : — The Wickham Council has said that no public speaking shall take place in the park unless the cranky crowd who represent the 'Wickham property-owners in the Council ap prove. Czar-like, they are to be sole arbiters in the case. That was exactly the attitude the Mayor of Lambton took up some years back, tbe Council being evenly divided over , the matter. At that time the Mayor caused summonses to issue against the writer and another, and the case was heard before Magistrate Pay ten in the Lambton Police ^ourt, which wa- crowded to the doors. Mr. Millard, of tfie firm of Sparke and Millard, appeared for the Council, and we (tbe defen...
AT CAPITAL'S CAPITOL. [Newspaper Article] — People — 24 August 1901
AT CAPITAL'S CAPITOL 'Twab an awful climb-down that Barton and Co. had to do over those queer allowances; seems they reck oned that if 'twas right for Cham berlain's Government to loot in South Africa, there should be no very great objection to Barton's patriotic gang securing a little loot from the Federal Treasury bo re compense them for the enormous sacrifices they have been called to make in their brave determina tion to save this bleeding country— for the robber class. Thronghont the whole length of the dreary debate on the Conscrip tion Bill, only one decent protest was made from a working-class standpoint. Needless to say it came from Queenslander Charley McDonald, Incidentally, it might be said here that, if McDonald were not tied to the vacillating, treacher ous crew that calls itself a Federal Labor Party, he would be capable of genuine development as a work ing-class politician. As it is, his com pany damns his chance of useful ness. Watson's speech, previously re ferred ...

About Switzerland. (FOR THE PEOPLE.) [Newspaper Article] — People — 24 August 1901
About Switzerland. (For Tbk Pioplb.) The Swiss Referendum is a verj old institution. . It was in use under the oligarchic system in the 16th and 17th centuries, but became obsolete because the people declared the; didn't want it. In 1830, modi rn democraoy achieved permanent as cendancy in Switzerland, and sinoe that time almost all States (can tons) have adopted at various times the Referendum, which is, however, a term covering some 15 different legislations, but having almost all essential features in com* mon. The Initiative has a similar history. Both form now two of the most important institutions of Swiss constitutional, law, both federal and cantonal, except in the tmall bigh land cantons, where the citizens &nbsp; unite in open-air once a year in the &nbsp; ' Landsgemende,' and appoint the &nbsp; ' officials and judges, and act as a legislative body. In the other larger States, such a kind of direct democracy has never existed, and would be im possib...

Manifesto of the Socialist Labor Party. [Newspaper Article] — People — 31 August 1901
Manifesto: of the Socialist Labor Party. ZN ORDER to give praotical effect to the principles of Socialism through th« Ballot-box, the members of 4he Australian Socialist League have decided to enter the Political .field, recognising that only by this mean* can the working-class obtain ^f^oontrol of the Governmental machinery, and the alms of Socialism be realised. Hence, a new foroe stakes its advent into vylvl Australian Polities, standing only and uncompromisingly for the working-clssa. That new foroe is | ' TOB SOOIALIST LABOR PARTY. With the establishment of the Attttralhm Commonwealth, new industrial developments will take place— are even now taMng place, and the political and class divisions created by conflicting industrial and class interests will be more rigidly drawn ft»«m hitherto.

Cardinal Moran's Morality. Cardinal Mob ah, speaking at the, Father Timoney Testimonial If qe ting, said that he had had no sympathy with the v ar from the first, and had tried to prevent nAnnlp vnlnnfMrinff! nf. f.liA namn time, when Mbe Goveanment de cided upon sending the troops to % South Africa, he was bound to oo ' operate.' He opposed the war, apparently, ' because be considered it a war of plunder, but acquiesced in men being sent to participate in the plunder and murder business because the parasitic and unsorupn Ions See Government decided tbey should go. The logic of the Car dinal's morality, then, is that if the Cardinal unsuccessfully at tempted to prevent a number of his friends perpetrating a burglary, when they had . finally decided on the crime, his duty would be *? » co-operate. And, if he should en deavour to reason some others out of the determination to go in for a howling spree, when the spree was ' finally decided upon, the Cardinal would be ' bound to co-oper...
