Open Column. Is the I. W. W. Necessary? [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 17 December 1910
Open Column. Is the I.W.W. Necessary ? H.-L. DiONKi.ni) writes: Thin question lias arisen many times in the political organisa tions of the Socialists?, .and 'has been freely debated in many eongresses throughout the world. That it has met with strong oppo sition is well known, mainly bemuse it in volves a reconstruction of the present form of economic organisation of the working class, and also on account of it purely eco nomic character. A section of Socialists believe that the working class organised as a political move ment with a revolutionary aim, and the federation of our existing form of economic organisation (trades unionism), is all that is required to bring about better conditions and ultimately the social revolution. To answer these one need only point Ml the many Socialist Parties and the Federa tions of Trades Unions now existing through out the world. In France, Germany, Belgium, and Fin land we find that as soon as the political movement became powerful it grew less ...

Labor Party will jail the Strikers. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 17 December 1910
Labor Party will jail the Strikers. A Sydx'kv Labor Council deputation ap proached the Minister for Labor on Monday with si request for certain amendments in tie Industrial Disputes Act. Mr. Beeby's reply is worth preserving. He insisted that the unionist.*, the wage- workers, must ' give their loyal adherence to the principle of settlement of industrial disputes by the tribunal established ;' — which tribunal is bossed by the employers' representatives — ' rather than by the strike,' and he pro ceeded to say: ' In the working out of any such scheme there must be penalties provided against those who took part in strikes, and penalties to compel the carrying out of awards. The Government regarded the penalties provided in the 1JI00 Act as, in the main, sufficient, but there would be an additional one. If an organisation was deliberately breaking the law, and if a strike was tak ing place outside the scope of the Act, then any organisation having the benefit of the Act could not suppo...

An Incident at Sydney U.LU. A 'United Lahorkr' writes: Don ald Macdonell spoke for nearly an hour and a half before the U.L.U. on Nov. 28, taking up much time that might have been more profit ably utilised. He was there to talk tne u.L/. u. men into taicingat least one share in the projected Spence Lamond daily paper. Macdonnell's attitude was one of bluster. He said this was a time for straight-talking, and he would hit hard; after which he rambled along to accuse the 70,000 metropolitan unionists of not doing their share in the matter of the new paper, and to tell them of all the money the A.W.U. had spent on po litical organisers, whose work had resulted so gloriously in getting some of said organisers into Parliament, 111 1 '111 1 '¥ T T ¥' T 1 1 ana men, ne saia, tne a. yv.u. inut even voted £1000 to help the New castle miners, who he knew were fight ing a useless fight.

Italy. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 17 December 1910
Italy. I he eleventh annual con lercnce or the Italian Socialist Party was held at Milan during the last week of October.' The first item of importance was as to whether or not the order of the day f lioiild be reversed. Turati was to open a discussion on 'General guiding principles of politi cal action,' which would include a whole series of questions. The intransi gents moved that Turati's speech bo post poned until after their reckoning with the past actions of the .Parliamentary group. Turati opposed this motion violently,' and it was subsequently lost, the representatives uf ()')!() members of the party voting for, and uf 1 1 ,S&S against. The intransigents did not vote quite solidly for their motion and the so-called discontented Reformists' voted with the other Reformists. Logical and justifiable as the demand for the 're version was, it did not really make much difference' in practice,, as the discussion 'opened 'by Turati was capable' 'of' being widened to every pos...

They asked for high prices for the belts, and the poor wretches in the sinking boats clutched their purses and stared aghast at each other. They grumbled at the prices jlemauded, and contended that the crew of the life-boat should be compelled to sell them at a fair price; but the owners of the belts said that would be ' confiscation, robbery, and .Socialism.' The,re was a big crowd on shore, and when they heard the argument between the wrecked people and their rescuers, they be crjuo terribly excited, and waved their arms, and shouted a lot about 'inhumanity,' 'g...
