SYDNEY PROPAGANDA. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 13 November 1915

SYDNEY PROPAGANDA. Outdoor meetings and sales of literature were exceptionally en couraging during last week end. Mrs. Lynch lectured in the hall on Sunday night, the subject being 'Women and the War.' The hall was crowded and remained so during the somewhat long dis cussion which followed. The at of Wednesday evenings remains well up to standard, and it is to be hoped that the numbers will increase in the future. Those who have aspirations to educate others must first of all educate themselves, and these classes are useful, inasmuch as points of view are brought for ward and discussed which are not thought of in personal study. ? ^ ? Labor Governments are getting head over heals in debt to the big financiers and the capitalist class. Yet some foolish people believe that institutions which are financ ed by the bosses are capable of benefiting the worker. Class antagonism would be im possible if it did not have an economic foundation. Class wars and class hatred will therefore only b...

The "Cockroach" Exploiters. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 13 November 1915

The 'Cockroach' Exploiters. A feeling possessed by many workers is that if their employer works himself, especially if beside his employees, at whatever work is being done, he should be treat ed with more consideration, and not be grudged a little additional effort when such is required to facilitate the 'work in hand. This illjudged generosity aids flip small --.anit.alist in his strug gles toward a position as an employer on a large scale, and helps to keep in exist ence what is called the lower mid dle class, which as a body is the most unscrupulous of exploiters. The master thieves, by cunning flattery, fool the smaller thieves into a belief that the interests of the millionaire and the middle class are identical. The attitude of the struggling employer to wards the workers was well shown in the recent New Zealand labor troubles. The small em ployer should be treated by all workers as one of their worst enemies. The would be capitalist who, like Mahomet's coffin is sus pended be...

Tramping the Ganger. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 13 November 1915

Tramping the Ganger. Writing from Platelayers ' Camp, East- West Railway, a cor respondent informs us, under date 29/10/ '15:— Felloiv- Worker, — l myself have been spreading the propaganda since we have been here, and we have made a good many converts who will call at the locals first time they reach Adelaide or any oi ine amer cities. We are up against a supervis ing engineer named Cook, who recently came from Queensland. Following are some of his tactics since he came : — Platelayers were doing a mile and a half a day with 90 men; when we reached Tarcoola he re duced the distance to threequart ers of a mile, with 60 men to tracklaj', lift and pack and straighten same with 33ft. rails. Then 40ft. rails were introduced, and he wanted us to put in anoth er ten chain with 6 extra men, but we woke up to his game. With 6 men extra, he would get, with the 10 extra chain, a mile of road laid with 48 men, lifted and straightened every eight days, while in West Australia end they were layi...

CHILD VAGRANCY. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 13 November 1915

CHILD VAGRANCY. Attorney-General Hall ex presses his solicitude for the 'charitable public' who are imposed upon by juvenile beg gars. Hall is shocked at the fact that a child re eently brought up in the Child drcn's Court had the sum of 11s lOd in his possession, obtained by \\otrmrnr in t.Vip st/PAf-t.c On a would think that a sterling 'so- cialist ' and democrat, such as Davy claims to be, would set about doing something to remove the cause of child vagrancy instead of issuing a warning through the capitalistic press against unfortu nate and helpless children. HaU knows, or should know, that whe ther the rublic are 'imposed' upon or not will not alter the un I^riymg causes of youthful vag rancy. The fact, by the way, tha'; it is uecessary to call public attention to such a state of affairs is a queer commentary upon tbe boasted welfare of freedom lov iti£ tnn cemocratic Australia fur which Hall and other patriots ask the workers to shed their blood. Surely no German would want to...

I. W. W. Philosophy and the Law. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 13 November 1915

L W. W. Philosophy and the Law. Frank P. Walsh, Chairman U.S. Commission on Industrial Relations, writes in the tenth anniversary num ber of 'Solidarity'. — Among the thousand witnesses who have appeared before the Com mission, two stand out prominently before my mind's eye. One is Wil liam D. Haywood, the rugged intel lectual, witn nis racimy 01 puras ing, his marvellous memory and his singularly clear and apt method of illustration. The other is George H. Speed, who spoke of the aims of the I.W.W. and the woes of the itinerant worker /while before ;the Commis* sion in San Francisco last August. Haywood testified before the Com mission for about three hours. In that time, through questioning and in recall, he was dragged forth and hack upon an exhaustive examina tion of the history of the Western Federation of Miners. There was before me a history of the organi sation. Throughout the questions, Haywood answered, never once miss ing a date, a number, or deviating in the slightest de...

Eureka Veteran's Views. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 13 November 1915

Eureka Veteran's Views. By '.Old Eureka,' W.A. The cartoon on the front page of your issue of Oct. 9th is a well de served and stinging taunt to trades and political unionism throughout Australia, and is fully justilied by the wretched failure to abridge the work ing day by even one hour during m. forty-three years mentioned by you since the first Eight Hours' Proces sion in Sydney. The institution of the Eight Hour Day in Victoria dates fully a decade further back according to the dale on the Eight Hours' monument in Spring Street, near Parliament House, Mel bourne. During this lapse of time, fully over half a century, nothing has been done to shorten the time of the working day, despite the facts jf the everin creasing number of the unemployed, the precarious tenure of those wi have a job, the constantly increasing completion of the wage slaves, aim the logical necessity for shortening the period of the working day, as the only means of absorbing the surplus labor which by its inc...

Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 13 November 1915

I. W. W. Preamble. I ? O ? 1 The working class and the employing class have nothing in 1 common. There can be no peace so long as hunger and want are I found among millions of working people, and the few who make I up the, employing class have all the good things of life. 1 Between these two classes a struggle must go on until the I workers of the world organise as a class, take possession of the fl earth and the machinery of production, and abolish the wage I system. ? We find that the centreing of the management of industries into .1 fewer and fewer hands makes the trade unions unable to cope with I the ever-growing power of the employing class. The trade unions ? foster a state of affairs which allows one set of workers to be ? pitted against another set of workers in the same industry, thereby I helping to defeat one another in wage wars. Moreover, the trade ? unions aid the employing class to mislead the workers into the belief ? that the working-class have interests in common ...

The Hen C. W. and Others. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 13 November 1915

The Hen C. W. and Others. The National Council of Womon, which, by the way, is composed of our wives and women folk of our very 'best people,' has outlined a scheme for the natioanl registration of tne. women in Australia, so that they may have 'a cohesive organisation will ing to uphold the present ratca . f production and manufactures, auii to continue the various callings rects sary to the maintenance of the State.' This should be most encouraging news for the women at present engag ed in production and manufaUurts. Mrs. Potts Point, Mrs. Mcsman and other N.C.W. ladies, will no doubt give effect to their effusive loyalty and exchange places with them for a while. 'Production, manufacture and the maintenance of the State' have always been something which the workers, male and female, have beeii left a monpoly of, and it is pleasing to see that the N.C.W. has arrived at the conclusion it is time its mem bers and its class done something useful. However, we doubt their good intentio...

THE LABOR SHORTAGE BOGEY. |fv! A. E. Stewart writes from Coola- ;, man under date 2/11/15: — There are six Rebs camped here . waiting for a master. We considered 1 it advisable to acquaint you of the state of the Labor market here, as -| there is no possibility of harvesting starting for a fortnight at least. A few of the cockies are cutting a little hay, but they are not employing any men, and at the present time there are about 100 men camped here, and 150 camped around Junee Junction, and nearly the same number at Gan main, ten miles from here; also on the Temora line there are hundreds I of men waiting to find a master. : We would like to see these facts made public, in order that the lies printed in the capitalistic press, claiming a shortage of labor, may be contradicted. We understand the bosses' move, and it would be advisable for anybody coming up here to secure a job and their fare from the Farmers' and t : ?, Setters' Association before leaving; |'| by all means secure th...

I like abuse of the sort; but am forced to the belief that your con tributor, 'Flaneur,' is an idiot, and is unable to read the spirit or the letter of a man who knows his job as I know mine. Yours, etc., RANDOLPH BEDFORD. Sandringham, Victoria, 3/11/' 15. ('We confess that neither 'the spirit nor the letter' of the above is quite understandable, so far as we are concerned, however, perhaps our 'idiot' contributor, 'Flaneur,' may make something out of it.— Ed.)

Strikes in Sydney. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 13 November 1915

Strikes in Sydney. Following upon the settlement of the Coal Lumpers' Strike, which re sulted in some substantial conces sions, the brewery employees struck for higher wages during the latter part of last week. Notwithstanding the scabbing unseparable from the present form of organisation, brick layers, narnfintfirs plfiptririnns c-to employed by the brewers, remaining at work, there is every indication at time of writing, of the brewery employees winning a complete vic tory if the spirit of solidarity con tinues amongst themselves. The bosses have already made an offer of an increase all round on the pre sent rates, which has been turned down by the strikers. It is an en couraging sign that numbers of bar men ami barmaids have joined the strike, though not at first concerned in the dispute, and have seized the opportunity to put forward their own demands. The strike would have been set tled in the workers'- favor by this time, if the spirit of Industrialism prevailed, and all hands...

The Reward of Loyalty. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 13 November 1915

The Reward of Loyalty. According to English newspap ers, the Munitions Act recently passed has established a sort of industrial feudalism in the indus tries. No worker engaged in munition making can leave his employment for any reason with out first getting the consent of special tribunals appointed to deal with such cases. Out of eight mi such applications recently made in one day to one of these tribunals in London, only six wore granted. One worker made his applica tion on the ground that he was offered bettor wages in a similar munition factory, but was inform ed that the Tribunal 'had to consider other things besides wages.' The unions which consented to abolish union 'restrictions,' that is to forego the few concessions so bitterly won in the past, dur ing the period of the war, will it we may judge from these facts, get more than a bellyful of 'pat- riotism' in return for their loyal ty before the war is over; and when the workers awake to the dangers threatening them, the un...

WHY WORRY? Live On Weeds. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 13 November 1915

WHY WORRY? Live On Weeds. October-November issue of 'Stead's Review,' gives us some insight as to why the German food supply has been kept up, notwithstanding that the coun try 's imports have been practical ly cut off. Scientific investigation and ex periments in chemistry have shown that with the aid of a cer ium luriiuzer, rucuiiwy uis«ovt;r od, agricultural products can be increased enormously. German chemists have also discovered that many weeds, previously regarded as noxious and baneful, can pro vide a nutritious food after und ergoing more or less inexpensive treatment. In these days when economy is so loudly preached to the workers, the future of these discoveries will, no doubt, be watched with interest by the capi talist class of all countries. Wken the workers accustom themselves . to living on weeds, what a glor ious paradise this old eartk of ours will be for the espWife're.
