France. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 26 November 1910
France. The Socialist Party and the Coop erative Societies of France have issued a poster with the heading: ' La Cherte des Vivres ' (the clearness of food), in which they denounce the capitalist regime and its crises, and point out the enormous rise wlucn has taken place during the last year in the prices of the most necessary articles of food, and also in rent. They point out that the return of such crises can only be prevented by a Socialist state of society — when the people shall possess their own means of production — but, in the meantime, they demand that certain measures should at once lie taken, such as — purchase of. corn organised by the State and municipalities; State monopoly of the mills, refineries of sugar and alcohol, which would be able to regulate the market. They urge the workers to hold meetings everywhere demanding the suspension of duties on corn, wine, etc. ; the application of the laws on forestalling and on speculation; the suspension of taxa tion on the mo...
International Notes. Finland. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 26 November 1910
International Notes. ! Finland. A xiTMUEH of ex-police officials, who, under Bobrikoff displayed tlioir talents as spies, have lately returned to Finland in order to claim from the Finnish Senate ' compensa tion ' for the 'losses ' they suffered when driven out of the countrv in mOn. Tin. Senate did actually allow the police-rascal a considerable sum as compensation. It now transpires that this action was initiated by the Czar. As the Senator, General Markow, admitted in a conversation with a journalist, the gracious' Czar has issued an order that all who suffered through the general strike of l!)0o should now receive compensa tion. It is evident that the Czar knows how to make use of situations to the ad vantage of his most faithful allies.

Juliou.s Wezosnl, the Russian revolutionist and editor of the Lettish Socialist paper Prolela reals, has just managed to escape the fangs of the Czar. For some time the. Rus sian Government has been attempting to get him extradited on the trumped-up charge of stealing Russian Government notes. Our American comrades carried on an active campaign all over the United States against his extradition, and the Czar's tools eventually wore forced to abandon their quest. State Secretary Bostroin, of Washington, reports thirteen branches organ iseil witli 149 members during the month of August, and nine locals with 122 members thus far in September. The membership in the State has increased more than 400 in the last six weeks. Karl Liiebkncuht was due to arrive at H--- bo...

Invasion and Defence. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 3 December 1910
Invasion and Defence. I!V A.IAX. Thk capitalistic press is endeavoring by gross exaggeration lt» inoculate public opinion wifh the necessity of ' defence.' Long columns showing our utter helplessness in the face of the teeming millions of Asiatics a tew days steam trom U UK country (which we long ago pawned to the international capitalists) is their best argument for cultivating an inter national spirit of friendship in Aus tralia. The Christian papers breathe race hatred and all uncharitableness against the foreigners, and tell us it is German}', Japan, or China who will invade Australia. These are the only three possible invaders, so I will briefly deal with them. Before any power can successfully invade this 'great and glorious country, 'England's naval supremacy must be overthrown. As England, both numerically and strategically, holds a commanding position over Germany, and. as England will also have the help of our tinpot destroy ers, wo need not worry on this score.

£40 an Hour! » ? HV HAWUM. Mu. Wakd, more generally known as Lord Dudldy, must be a perfect genius — his intellect must be burst ing with the pressure of ideas.

Club wiis read protesting against the new regulation in the Defence Act, inserted by Senator Pearce, giving the Minister for Defence power to order permanent men to take the place of strikers. 'he Socialists present moved a motion protesting against this regulation, the Laborites bitterly opposing it. Ultimately the motion was defeated by the chairman's casting vote. The next clause, dealing with compulsory military training, was responsible for a heated discussion. One of the AntiMili tarists moved: 'That this Committee emphatically protests against militarism in all its forms.' The Laboritcs strenuously defended militarism. The president became very wrath, and left the chair to speak against the motion, and in a wild and whirling manner, hurled charges against the 'Reds.' Mo shrieked that the Socialists were fanatics...

L\ reading the reports which appear from week to week of the activities ol the Social ist Parties in Australia and throughout the world, the thought has occurred to me that New Zealand— the baby nation — should be represented in its columns, lest the idea should grow amongst readers of Tiik Lntkh ?natioxai. bouiAMST outside of New Zealand that Socialism was either unknown here or that it was in a very weak state. T must first tell you how .nueh Tiik Tn tkhxatioxai. Socialist is appreciated here in Auckland. It is liked by all who read it, and its circulation is increasing, and we be lieve will further increase as it becomes bet ter known. Socialism is tiik topic in Auckland at the present time.

It is talked about at meetings of Masters Federation and at Trade Union Conferences, and it is talked about very...
