Brutal Braggadocio. [Newspaper Article] — People — 31 August 1901
Bratal Braggadocio. This is how Trooper N. V. Cameron writes from Standerton, South Africa, concerning events in -: connection with the Plnnder War: — ' Every house we come to, «kiak« .all the ooonnants on the waggons, and burn the place down. We have had a very rough time of it,bot we don't go short of tucker. Se^ns coming into camp with a gooaetiedon in front, and a fid racking pig behind t We get five biscuit* per day for bread, and sometimes a pint of floor. It is great fan cooking at night. Wood is scarce, there not being a single tree growing in /his part on the oountry So we waltz into a house and pnll oat chairs, pianos, wheel barrows, or anything we can get for, firewood. You see, dampers don't taste too. nice cooked in ques tionable ashes. It is a terrible thing to Bee the .things we have to barn in the houses — lovely pianos, harps, and other furniture; while pgpr old mother Boer blubbers a«r$y in Dutch, and the kids howl their heads off.' This is the sort of -.'hero we a...

They Were There. At - the mass meeting of the | Tailoresses' Union, held re cently at the t Protestant Hall,' Griffiths and Hollis, Ms.L. -*-., were among the speakers. - To allay the icaio ui DutuD \Ji uui 1 I iouuD| ttuu think we strayed off tin track, an explanation is necessary.

We have asked Mr. Speaker to s'ate the particular ob jections that apply to us, and don't apply to other weekly papers. The Tighe's Hill Salvation Army has admitted the right of the Coun cil to veto its meetings on the Islington Park, and has applied for a permit, which has been granted for one month.

WHY SHOULD WE PARLEY WITH THE FOB. [Newspaper Article] — People — 31 August 1901
WHY SHOULD WE PAR LEY WITH THE FOB. On Friday evening of last week , at theS £duey Masonic Hall, whither he had been called by some of the freaks of the ' Labor ' movement, Mr. E. W. O'Sullivan indulged in heroics to an extent ihat was ex travagant — even for Mr. O'Sullivan I he Works Minister wsb renlvinB to the toast of ' The State Parlia ment,' and seized the opportunity to sing the praises of that nnhappy combination called the Se eGovern ment. He claimed that all his own efforts were prompted by 'a sincere desire to help humanity in its time of need and distress.' The trades* unionists present cheered Mr. O'Sullivan's utterance, but didnl pan se to consider that their ' need and distress ' always finds its ger minaing spot in the private owner ship of the means of life — a system developed and upheld by the class the See Government stands for ; and that only with the downfall of the Capitalist Class — i.e\. the Sen Government Class — will the need and distress of humanity disap...

Serious complications threa tened over the question of whether the New Gninea steamer, Merrie England, was Federal or State property. So far war has not been declared. Strained relations exist, though, between Federal and Leperland 'statesmen.' Qoinn, M.L.A., wants an Aot that will compel newspaper writers to sign all articles. Thb People is prepared to have all its articles signed, because it has nothing to hide. John Norton has backed down to Eden George.

Killing the Day Labor System. [Newspaper Article] — People — 31 August 1901
Killing the Day Labor System. ' The present Government are responsible for the appointment of more political deadbeatB to (at billets than all previous Govern ments. The/ are killing the day labor system by political jnter ference. (Instead of the managers or foremen en&rasrin&r or discharging men, they are compelled to accept the men who have had the ear of a member of the Ministey, or a mem ber who supports them. The so called labor members are up to their necks in this kind of political patronage. Mr. McGowen talks non-interference with one side of his mouth, and . urges the employ ment of his own constituents with the other. Australian hoodlums have been getting in some mote work in Capetown. Certainly the big Aus tralian cities benefitted when their scum element was drawn off for S' Africa plunder purposes.

The Misfortune of being born a Woman. On Sunday evening last, despite the very inclement state of the weather, there was a large attend ance at Marx Hall to hear N.

UUUU| and said that we, in N.S.W., also had a comic paper — published daily in King-street. True, onr penny comic had no ideas of its own, and even its humor was published at second and third hand. Mr. Thom son bad once said of the ' D T,' that itB main object was to make profits, and he admitted that, fiat the ' D.T.' also existed to uphold Capitalism — and it lived on the pennies of the workers, the male portion of whom had votes. As an upholder of Capitalism, there fore, the ' D.T ' bad to be foaght by the workers.

Unionists and Arbitration [Newspaper Article] — People — 31 August 1901
Unionists and Arbitration I I Mart trades unionist* favor Mr. Wise's capitalistic Arbitration Bill, which is intended to take from the workers the power to strike. Unionists who understand the economic basis of the Labor move ment repudiate the bill, and this irritates the economically ignorant fraternity. Mr. Peter Strong, of the Tailors ? Union, and who claims to be ' a unionist of 40 years' standing,' is very much upset because all union ists ate not prepared to surrender the industrial movement into . the keeping of the capitalists. Speaking in the Sydney Labor Council on Thursday night last week, . Mr. StroDg said that there were men in Sydney who pretended to be unionists, bat they were opposed to the compulsory clause in the Arbitration Bill. * A Voice : Name.

He Mast Go. [Newspaper Article] — People — 31 August 1901
He Most Go. How is it possible for the British farmer, untutored in modem busi ness methods and living perhaps in a remote country district, to com pete against lmrsreand capable or ganisations P He is a mere unit against a big army. His produce may be of the best possible qiality, but he can only sni'ply it in uncer tain driblets, whilst- they deliver it by the hundred tons. We speak of augmenting our home grown pro duce, so as to oust the foreigner, but until we first bring into play the potent factors of organisa ion and combination our efforts will be vain. — ' Chamber's Journal.' The small farmer, like the small manufacturer and shopkeeper, must disappear owing to lack of capital, in other words they are being super seded by a fitter system, which Sooialism — a fitter Bystem still — will in the near futnre supersede.
Net Socialism. [Newspaper Article] — People — 31 August 1901
Net Socialism. Tiros the President of the Vic torian Chamber of Manufacturers: ' The movement had arisen ont of a humane feeling, but the legislation went far beyond the intentions of the people.' (The people, of course, being the Manufacturers.) ' They merely desired that sweating should be abolished, but an Act was brought in which was nothing but pure Sooialism,' No, sirrah, it is not pure Sooialism, but ,-tupid labor legislaion — an effect; cause, the lack of eoonomio knowledge. Pure Socialism will not restrict the actions of your class by legis lation, but will abolish the system whioh enables your class to live on the products of the wage-earner. There will be no need for your class when pure Socialism operates. -The land, the factories, and workshops, and all the means of transportation will be owned by the whole people, and operated by them, and the pro duct consumed by them. What a calamity that will be 1 Abundance for all, leisure for all.

He said if this was true it wonld furnish something new in the annals of labor history.
