CORINTHIAN, W.A. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 30 October 1915

CORINTHIAN, W.A. The secretary of the local at Corin thian writes under date 11/10/15:— 'We had a bumper meeting here on Sunday night. FAY. Boggis {an Italian) spoke on Industrial Unio nism for over an hour in his own lan guage to a large gathering of his countrymen; also F.W. MacMillan spoke for some time on the class struggle, with the result that we pro cured several new members. The only disadvantage we are suffering from here at the present time is not hav ing any literature of the I.W.W. in Italian. Italians are going to play a big part in the struggle for better conditions in this part of Australia. I myself will stand responsible for two pounds worth of Italian pamph lets if they can be obtained.' (Italian I.W.W. pamphlets Lave been ordered for some time from U.S.A. by the Literature Secretary of Sydney Local. All required will be forwarded to Corinthian when Uey arrive here. — Ed.) Spence, Postmaster-General and ,1 President of the A.W.U., is beginning i to show himself in ...

Sydney. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 30 October 1915

Sydney. 1 The usual week-end meetings re- 1 suited, in good sales of the paper, as I well as literature. A large crowd He- 1 tened in the Domain 'to.. -Fellow-work- 1 er Larkin, despite opposition fr«™ 1 the 'cold teaites,' who opened up close by on the early closing of bars Ted Leggett, an organiser of the Lon don Carmens' Union, at present in Sydney, being on board the Orsova, also addressed the crowd in the Do main. Leggett is. a refreshing excep tion to the average type of trade union official, and though he may not see eye to eye with I.W.W. on all details, he seems to be an out and out direct actionist. We hope to hear him in the hall on Sunday evening next. Glynn was the speaker for the hall in the evening on the subject ot Industrial efficiency. Several new members were enrolled.

Melbourne PROTEST AGAINST WAR PRECAUTIONS ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 30 October 1915

Melbourne protest Against war pre cautions ACT. I attended the above. protest meet ing, and only one speaker dealt with the real weapon necessary in a fight for liberty. He stated that we had never yet enjoyed true liberty. The basis of political liberty rests on eco nomical freedom. That is the only way to obtain freedom of speech and press. The workers being disorgan ised on the economic field could not fo^rce any resolutions regarding politi cal fredom. , The capitalist class could afford to ignore and laugh at the puny efforts of resolutionists. The cases of Com rades Jackson, Quinton, Mandeno, Leslie and Bosch proved the useless ness of resolutions. Tom Barker's poster case proved the effectiveness of organised sabotage behind resolu tions, forcing the dismissal of his case in ten minutes. While organised pro test was good, and played its part as an advertising medium, organised ac tion was the joker to clinch and win the game. Freedom of speech and press is necessary in the cl...

Who said "Ca Canny" PATRIOTISM v. PHTHISIS. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 30 October 1915

Who said 'Ca Canny' PATRIOTISM v. PHTHISIS. -I.E.. in ' Solidarity '' says: ? 'The danger of habitually work ing overtime is dwelt upon by Uie British 'Medical Journal.' in dis ??ussinjr Hie returns given in the Vv hite Paper concerning 'Particu- lars _ of Time Worked in Week r.muijg AJ)nj ltJ} JUJrK Among* Shell Workers.' According to the report, nearly 10 pvr cent, of the workers Avcre working eleven hours a day for a seven-day week. ThMy-six per cent, arc working ten or more hours a day for seven clays a week.

BLATCHFORD The Chameleon. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 30 October 1915

BLATCH^ORD The Chameleon.. London 'Herald,' in a recent issue, says : — Fianklv, -we must put our backs into tho h.-ite business if we are to slop this ??nervathijf 'brotherhood' nonsense. In a monthly periodical, the 'Spur,' I notice a column article in praise of Hie Germans. Listen to this:— ''Die German love of hnmn ic Q° poignant and as deep as ours, and the English home and the German home are the same thing, . . Let any open-minded Englishman stand for an hour in a German crowd, and try to pick out the English. I have tried and felt completely baffled. . The Germans, indeed, I feel sure, are nearer to the English and Scotch than the Americans are; they are more like us; closer akin.' 1'oisonous, isn 't it? But that is not all, bless you! The writer, after a sidelong glance at the French, who are 'different,' goes on to say: — 'The Germans resemble the Eng lish in their national pride and con dence; they look successful. They are solid, stubborn, diligent, master ful, and good-...

BARKER'S CASE. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 30 October 1915

BARKER'S CASE. The following letter just received from the General Secretary of the Canterbury (N.Z.) General Labourers shows how militant labor in New Zea land views the action of the N.S.W. Labor Government: Trades Hall. Christchurch. October 13th, 1915. Mr. F. J. Morgan, Sydney. Dear Comrade, Enclosed please find an order made payable to yourself for £3 towards the Barker Defence Fund. We know Brother Tom, and we know the good work he is doing. We regret that things are no different under Labor administration than under Liberal or Tory administration. We congratulate you that your little rag should call forth a special Act of the Parliament of this country to prohibit your coming here. We are not now allowed to receive the paper 'Direct Action.' We expect to see the Bible barred before this war is over. The people are in hysteri cal mood. In common language they liave the jumps. So many of them have got friends at the front, and the reports being so bad from that quar ter, they a...

The Cavel Case. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 30 October 1915

The Cavel Case. Nurse Edith Cavell, an English nurse in Belgium, was arrested by the Germans and charged with espionage, found guilty, sentenced to death and shot. That is, if the press reports are correct. We sincerely hope that it is not another '?stumer' like the alleged capture and holding of Hill 60. Anyway, warfare Is not conducted upon a sentimental basis, and the sooner the blubber and lamentation end of the bull-dog breed realise that, the sooner they will be able to wal lop Germany, Austria and Turkey. It is a dreadful thing for a woman to be shot. It is a dreadful thing for a man to be shot. But such is war, the outcome of the inherited imbe cility of the race, and their apish animal forebears. The greater part ' of the race have really never left the shadow of the jungle. Espionage is a dangerous busings, the penalty is death. Those who go into the business, know the game that they are playing. The shooting of spies has not been confined to ihe Germans or their allies. M...

Workers! Enlist Today. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 30 October 1915

Workers ! Enlist Today. ? ? » — - I By J. H. Beecbam. I It would be well if the working ? c1'- ses of Australia and the BrHi '? H Empire generally were to carefully ? analyse the utterances, and study the I individuals who are so loudly ad ? vorrting the enslavement of the work B ing-class by conscription. Are these ? individuals actuated by a love and B deep regard for the Empire, or are ? they more vitally concerned about il- ?? lilching from the workers the liard ie ^m named improved conditions of labor d- ?? -.vh ifh the workers have had to fight [J. Hj for e\ery inch of the way? I venture :d ?£ to say that the latter is their real g- fl| motive. The advoates of conscription -b Hjj are chiefly men over military age, or 1- ^B men with something to lose, either is .?» wealth or position. Their worry and '1' fl| anxiety for the defence of the Empire bT S| is caused by fear, that should the war n~ B& be lost, their wealth or posH-.oi.s H m'SIU be in danger. To secure safety ...

UNCONSCIOUS HUMOR. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 30 October 1915

UNCONSCIOUS HUMOR. The new 'war regulations' con tain a clause which says: 'No person shall print or publish. . . any document which incites, encourages, advise, or advocates violence, lawless ness, or disorder,' etc. The I.W.W. papers, 'Solidarity' ; and 'Direct Action,' have been pro hibited in N.Z. because, it is alleged, | they advocate sabotage. * An official demonstration of hand grenades, charged with Sabulite, was was made at Fort Dorset on Thurs day, and was witnesed by the Hon. J. Allen (Minister for Defence), Brig- \ adier-General Robin (Commandant of the New Zealand Forces), and other war experts. The grenades were i thrown by Capt. Thring between two ;, trenches about thirty feet apart, in one of which ten dummy figures of wood had been placed. The figures were smashed to splinters by the grenades, which, in the opinion of the military authorities, caused such a concussion that any men who were in the trench would have been incapac itated by the shock alone. — Daily pre...

It is interesting to noto the mark ed effect of I.W.W. propaganda on the master class.

I. W. W. Preamble. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 30 October 1915

I. W. W. Preamble. I ? o ? ? The working class and the employing class have nothing in fl common. There can be no peace so long as hunger and want are fl found among millions of working people, and the few who make fl up tbe employing class have all the good things of life. B Between these two classes a struggle must go on until the B workers of the world organise as a class, take possession of the B earth and the machinery of production, and abolish the wage B system. S We find that the centreing of the management of industries into j fewer and fewer hands makes the trade unions unable to cope with j the ever-growing power of the employing class. The trade unions I foster a state of affairs which allows one set of' workers to be j pitted against another set of workers in the same industry, thereby I helping to defeat one another in wage wars. Moreover, the trade I unions aid the employing class to mislead the workers into the belief I that the working-class have interests in common...
