Socialism and Invention. [Newspaper Article] — People — 21 September 1901
Socialism and Invention. Under Socialism everything would sink to one dead level of mediocrity in consequence of at | tempting to give practical effect to the theory of ' to everyone accord ing to his needs,' instead of re warding -all in proportion to the services rendered. Above all there would be no stimulus to iudustry, no incentive to invention. That, at any rate, is the idea put forward by the average opponent of Social Democracy. He seems to imagine that everyone is rewarded for ser vices rendered to-day« and that the ma-i who invents some laborre ducing machine, or some lifesav ing apparatus, or anything which is . of service to mankind in any way, benefits both himself and his fellow-creatures. How far this is from the truth is proved by the in namerable' instances of inventors dying in want and misery. The ' Daily Mail ' the other day had the following: 'Willie Would have died in the seventieth year of his age on. September 28, 1821, and his remains are interred in St. Hil...
SWEATING THE BLIND WORKERS! AT SYDNEY INDUSTRIAL BLIND INSTITUTION. [Newspaper Article] — People — 21 September 1901
SWEATING THE BLIND I WORKERS! I AT SYDNEY INDU8TKIAL BLIND INSTITUTION. The statements by Mr. Hedger, recently appearing in the public press, would make it appear that the blind toilers at the above insti tution were very well treated, and had not a very great deal to com plain about. The following ac count of theconditionsaurrounding the blind people who work for this ' charitable ' establishment supplies a rather bitter remem brance of Bellamy's water tank, and the drops sparingly sprinkled oat to allay the discontent of the thirst-stricken people whose labor had filled the tank to overflowing. A BLIND WOBEEB'B STATEMENT. 'I am a chair caner and halter maker'. I work from 8 a.m. to half past 12 p m. We are supposed to have one hour for dinner ; but I don t have any dinner hour. I only hive a bit to eat, and then start again, so that I won't lose too much time. We work up to 5.15 p.m. winter months, summer months to 6 p.m. The average weekly earnings is about 13s 4d for chair canir...
It Didn't Worry Him. [Newspaper Article] — People — 21 September 1901
It Didn't Worry Him. When Mr, Watson, leader of the Federal Bogus Labor Party, was covering Sir W. M'Millan with the slime of silly eulogism last week, it didn't seem to occur to him that the object of his fulsome adu lation was an ex-member of the Ministry that wrecked the mari time nnions of '90, that read the Hiot Act, and bludgeoned the strikers at Circular Quay ; that converted the non-union clerks and counter-jumpers of Sydney into special constables. Neither did it seem to worry him that Sir Wil liam was the head of Mo Arthur's great female-sweating firm in Aus tralia. What's the good of bowl ing about ' social oontamina' ion ' through mixing with colored races it' the M'Millan class are to be al lowed to degrade the women workers into a condition of slavery, almost as bad as, if not worse than, the slavery endured by the blacks ? M'Millau would fight to the death a legalised ei^ht-hours day and a decent minimum wage for the women— and yet, because he gets off a few frothy wo...
The Reign of Anarchy! [Newspaper Article] — People — 21 September 1901
The Reign of Anarchy I j Tuesday's '? D.T.,' which con ' ained so many columns of righteous indignation concerning the assassi nation of MoKinley, printed the following with no word of protest whatever : Trooper Ted Stewart, serving with the Fifth West Australian Contingent in South Africa, writing to his father, Mr. John Stewart, of Berry, from Middleburp, under date July 24, gives some details of the British operations. He says : — ' We had a two months' trek from here to Elandsfontein, and it only took us eight days to return, so you can see we covered a good scope of country. We burnt a great number of farms, and brought on goodness knows how many families' On our way we passed through Ermelo, and smashed the town up generally. All sorts of shops and public buildings were looted, and con tents destroyed, and later on 1 believe the place was burned. It was almost a pity to soe such 1 things as pianos, organs, and mirrors smashed. One chap went into an hotel where there was a huge...
OPEN COLUMN. An Appreciative Visitor. [Newspaper Article] — People — 21 September 1901
OPEN COLUMN. An Appreciative Visitor. I was a visitor at the social reunion of the Australian Socialist League, held in Marx Hall, and I want now to record my impressions of that function. Well, in the first plaoe, the at tendance was up to the ustaal standard of Socialist gather ings of i hat description, viz., a full house of intelligent, well-behaved young people (and of course, elderly people also) who all seemed to thoroughly enjoy themselves, both as regards the musical and material portion of the gathering, and also with the intellectual por tion, as provided by Mr. Thomp son ; and this is the portion I wish to say a word or two about I sat listening to that gentleman during his brief discourse, and I think I then heard some of the beet sentiments I have ever listened to. When Mr. Thompson started to talk, the very first thing he said was that he did not come there to do any individual any good, bnt simply to do himself good ; and then he went on to show how, ac cording to So...

A DEPUTATION TO THE PREMIER. | j ABOUT A STATE CLOTHING I FACTORY. - [GOVERNMENT will START I THE FACTORY. BUT WON'T PROMISE A I LIVING- WAGE. | PREMIER SEE! IN A CORNER. ? i Recektlt, the Tailoresses Union resolved to ask the Labor Council to arrange for a deputation to the Premier to draw attention to the sweating in the clothing trade generally and particularly in con nection with Government contract*, and to demand the establishment of ] I a State Clothing Factory. After a lengthy delay, the Labor Council was suddenly notified last Thursday evening that the deputa tion would be .received at 6 p.m. next day. The Counoil made an unsuccessful attempt to have the date and time changed, and the members of the TailoresBes' Com mittee were hurriedly sammoned, and the deputation was ' received.' The Council had arranged tbat the deputation should include dele gates from the ' P.L.L.,' and these were present, in addition to repre sentatives from the Sydney I abor Council and the kindred ...
Lubricities of the State Legislature. [Newspaper Article] — People — 21 September 1901
Lubricities of the State Legislature. When the Capitalistic Arbitration Bill was before the Assembly last week, Mr. Cohen moved to omit the ' common rule ' clause. Mr. McGowen held that the ' common role ' was absolutely necessary, but, in reply to an in teijection, said it was not abso lutely necessary all over the State, 'but with such limitations as the Court dictated.' Since the Court is to consist of two members of the Capitalist class, and only one from the workers' side, Mr. SlcGowen would appear to be willing to leave the application of this precious com mon rnle to the class that is Labor's natural enemy Mr. Hollis pointed outthat there was always a great danger of a strike faking place in the railway service with disastrous results. His argument was that to prevent the railway men from striking the ser vice Bhould be brought within the scope of the Arbitration Bill Mr. Crick emphasised the faot that the Bill would take from the - workers the power to strike. He thought it ...

HE WAS IN A HURRY. A DIALOGUE CUT SHORT. [Newspaper Article] — People — 21 September 1901
HE WAS IN a HURRY. A DIALOGUE CUT SHORT. Scene : Belmore Park. Salva tionist and Socialist walking through park. Salvationist (indicating man lying on grass reading paper) : That's a thing should be preven ted. Socialist: Why? Sa. : Because it encourages men to lie about and not look for work. So. : How would you like, after having tired yourself out tramping round all the morning, and having failed to get employment, to be de barred from resting yourself in tbe public park P Sa. : Oh, these men don't want work. There's plenty of work if they care to look for it. So. : Personally I know at least a dozen men anxious and willing enough to work, but unable to find it, unless, perhaps, in homes or other like institutions, where for a day's work they are given a meal and a bed. Sa. : That is the fault of the Go vernment in not finding work for the unemployed. So : It's rather the fault of the people in not compelling the Go vernment to utilise the labor of the workers on reproductive and...
The Bitterness of Truth. [Newspaper Article] — People — 21 September 1901
The Bitterness of Truth. , When the ringing notes of the war trumpet and the throbbing of the war drums awoke the echoes of the South African hills ; when the' red-coaled mercenaries of England's Robber Capitalists marched in mur derous array to the attempted conquest of a comparatively free people— and au eminently ' Chris tian people ; when tbe cannon bjomed, and shot and shell whistled and screamed, hurling destruction everywhere and tearing hnman bodies to fragments ; when the deadly lyddite spread its poisonous fumes and. choked the life out of stalwart, fearless men; when the fiendish bayonet charge was ordered and men and boys were thrnst through and through ; when a human brute related how he had forced his bayonet through the face of a Boer, and how he had placed his foot on his victim's neck and wrenched the blade out while the Boer yet lived ; when the flames kindled by the incendiarist leaped heavenward from the homesteads that it had taken well-nigh a century to estab l...

AT CAPITAL'S CAPITOL [Newspaper Article] — People — 21 September 1901
AT CAPITAL'S CAPITOL &nbsp; BOGUS Labor member Ronald &nbsp; oomplained, in the House of Repre- &nbsp; sentatives, that he 'had seen a &nbsp; sorry load of Afghans coming up &nbsp; from Port Melbourne, despite the &nbsp; assurance that they would be ex- &nbsp; eluded' ; and the Prime Minister &nbsp; explained that 'British subjects &nbsp; could not be exoluded by an Act of &nbsp; the State.' He had found that &nbsp; these Afghans were all British sub- &nbsp; jects, who could not be excluded &nbsp; under present conditions.' &nbsp; Mr Deakin delivered his care- &nbsp; fully-prepared speech on the tricky &nbsp; Immigration Bill. His most noted &nbsp; declaration was that a white Aus- &nbsp; tralia was to be the Monroe Doc- &nbsp; trine of the Capitalistic Common- &nbsp; wealth. He pleaded hard for the &nbsp; educational...
PERJURED PLEADERS FOR CAPITALISM. [Newspaper Article] — People — 21 September 1901
PERJURED PLEADERS FOR CAPITALISM. If there is one fact that stands out more prominently than others it is the readiness with which the mem bers of the Capitalist class lend them selves to the work of unscrupulous lying to uphold their class interests. Especially does this apply to the men who describe themselves as ' Ministers of the Gospel,' and never has the fact demonstrated itself more clearly them in connec tion with the killing of President McKinley. One preacher — the 'reverend ' George Campbell — last Sunday ''dealt with Anarchial Socialism,' and throughout the course of an address that did not disclose any deep desire on the preacher's part to cling to the truth, assiduously endeavoured to make it appear that the principles of Anarchy and Socialism were identical. Here is one' extract from the sermon : — « Socialists, with few exceptions, ig nored the immense progress which had been made in labor, wages, rights, and the strenuous efforts of the friends of mankind for their ...
