A Huge Success. [Newspaper Article] — People — 28 September 1901
flf Huge Success. i The Dramatic and 'Musical En tertainment which eventuated on Friday night of last week was, to say the least, a huge success. The Manchester Unity Hall was com fortably filled, and the audience was most appreciative. The first part of the programme consisted of a one act comedietta entitled 'To Oblige Benson,' and the characters were impersonated by Mr. A J. Shirley fMr. BenqoD, a barrister) ; Mr. J. O. Moroney (Mr. Trotter Southdown, his friend) ; Mr. J. Lewin (Mr. John Meredith, apnpil of Mr. Benson) ; Miss Elsie Lees (Mrs Benson) ; Mrs. A. J. Shirley (Mrs. Southdown). The characters were well sustained by the ladies and gentlemen taking part, and the rounds of applause that greeted them at intervals during the act was a guarantee that their efforts were well appreciated After a short interval, the second part of the programme commenced with a song entitled 'Out on the Deep,' by Mr. A Parkin, whioh was well received; Miss Levre's rendition of ' Flight of Ages,'...
KERNELS. [Newspaper Article] — People — 28 September 1901
KERNELS. Oh the occasion of the departure of five returned swaddies, who were again making for South. Africa, Ballarat ' Courier,' whose editor is a colonel, remarked : ' It is not a creditable thing to have to have to say that, in every case, in ability to obtain emnlovmeafc at. their former work is the oause of their return.' Of course, the cap italist press won't deprecate the faot that these men are compelled to revert to a profession of murder in order to live. Who said Anarohy ? The British capitalist howls loudly about patriotism when he wantB the fool Britisher to fight his mur derous battles fot' gold ! When he wantt ' make profits i 's alto- ' gether a different matter, and he employs the worker whose price is lowest. Following par from the ' Bulletin '' makes instructive read ing : ' The boys of. the bull-dog breed : The crew (lljof a British registered ship were last week prosecuted at Sydney for rioting. Two were Greeks, eight were of various other non-British nations (...
A Challenge to the Parsons. [Newspaper Article] — People — 28 September 1901
A Challenge to the Parsons. On Sunday evening last, the Rev. C. H. Talbot preached at Randwick Presbyterian Church on ' President McKinley and the Socialists,' and ' declared that the diabolical as sassinations whioh had stained the pages of the nineteenth century his tory were due to the doctrineB of Socialism. . . . Th§ tenets of tnat cnlt taught rebellion against I every authority, human and divine, on the grounds that the claims of supernatural religion were incon sistent with liberty and justice.' Mr. Talbot may have spoken what, because of an unfortunate lack of knowledge, he believed to be the truth, or he may have deliberately Btated a falsehood to uphold tbe class interests he preaches for The People challenges Mr- Tal bot to justify hiB charges, either on the public platform — where he will not Bpeak under cover of religious service privilege — or through these columns, or the columns of any other newspaper. If Air. Tal bot's charges were honestly made, he will not hesitat...

AT CAPITAL'S CAPITOL [Newspaper Article] — People — 28 September 1901
AT CAPITAL'S CAPITOL . On Wednesday of last week, the Honse of Reprehensibles adjourned I because of McKinley's death. | Tbe ponderous Toby Barton inflicted a monotonous harangue on his long- Buffering fellow-members, daring the course of whioh he emitted a shriek for the wiping-ont of the Anarchists. Sir William McMillan (Sydney's Knighted Sweater) said the Eng- 1 lish speaking people on the other Bide of the ocean, by a fanatical and dastardly act, had lost their constitutional ' ruler ' ; and then be went on to blame Providence for the crime. Chris. Watson seems to reckon, now be leads tbe Federal B L P., that he is licensed to make silly speeches and ape his capitalistic bosses. He told them McKinley was a man upon the lustre of whose name not even the fain teat breath cf suspicion bad ever rested. He hastened to offer a ' tribute of respect to the memory of a man who was a good citizen, a reliant soldier, and a patriotic statesman.' What will the American work ing-class — what ...

GLEANINGS. [Newspaper Article] — People — 28 September 1901
GLEANINGS. For while the tired waves, vainly breaking, Seem here no painful inch to gain, Far back through creeks and inlets making, Comes silent, floodingin, the main. And not by eastern windows only, -wnen aayiignt comes, comes m the light ; In front, the sun climbs slow, how slowly, But westward look, the land is bright. The more perfect the maohine of production becomes the further removed are the workers from the feudal persona] relations. The , more primitive the tool, the easier is the life of the toiler. The modern wonder-tool is a slave driver, than whom none in the palmiest days of chattel slavery plied the lash more pitilessly. Labor should not at this time rush to the West Coast. Both Queenstown and Zeehan are very dull ; and as speculation languishes the outside shows continue to shnt down for want of dollars to pay wages — ' Hobart Clipper.'

Newcastle Eight-Hour Committee. [Newspaper Article] — People — 28 September 1901
Newcastle Eight*Hour Committee. ? (From a Correspondent.) J Just Before the State eleotions Newcastle Eight-Hour Committee caused circulars to be forwarded to all parliamentary candidates, ask ing them to give ni pledge that if elected they would snpport a legalised maximum working day of eight hours. The replies were all in the affirmative- and were con sidered most satisfactory. Lately the same Committee sent tbe following motion to the McGowen party : — That the members of the Eight Hour Committee, Northern District, representing the following unions and labor bodies, viz. — Miners, wharf laborers, carters and lorrymen, Cas tlemaine Brewery employees, Bakers' Union, coal trimmers, Honeysuckle Point employees, journeymen tailors, Government Tramway employees, Government quarrymen.

Lubricities of the State Legislature. [Newspaper Article] — People — 28 September 1901
Lubricities of the State Legislature. The Capitalistic Arbitration Bill was banged through the I ower House last. week. Mr. W. P. Crick was the Min ister in charge, and his leadership of the House was both elegant, and dignified, his language refined and courteous, his tone conciliatory and gentlemanlv to the last degree. Frinstance : Mr. Orick proceeded to allude in disparaging terms to the appointment to the Supreme Court Bench of ex- Judge Foster. Mr. Carruthers : He was a good Judge. Mr. Crick : A good humbug. Mr Cohen, rose to a point of order. Mr. Crick : What 'is the matter with you, Fatty 1 Mr. Ashton called the attention of the chairman to the language em ployed by the Minister for Lands to wards Mr. Cohen. (' Hear, hear.') Mr. Crick : Well, I'm sorry to have called him Fatty. Mr. Ashton thought that the Minis ter should withdraw the offensive ex pression, and apologise to the House. Mr. Crick : I am quite certain that Mr. Cohen did not take it in the same sense as the dism...
PEPPER AND SALT. [Newspaper Article] — People — 28 September 1901
PEPPER AND SALT. Nothing more helpless and im potent can be conceived than the politicians who claim to represent ' Labor ' in this State. Their ig norance of the most rudimentary principles of working-class econo mics was am pi j shown daring the I debates on i the 'Gompnlsorr Ac I ceptance of Capitalist Conditions.' I Not one of them gave evidence of any deep knowledge of the fact that the cause of low wages, sweat ing, long hoars, and general misery, in the private ownership by the capitalist class of all the aonrces of life. Lawyers Want and Pilcher threaten to go the ' whole hog,' and give the people ' Socialistic legislation.' Surely this terrible threat from the lap-dogs of Cap italism must have made the old Landlords and Capitalists in the Council shiver. A brilliant worker could wipe the floor with either Want or Pilcher. who are both press-boomed politicians. Want is a bully and a braggart. All the ' Socialistic legislation ' they are howling about won't interfere with the...
THE CLASS WAR [Newspaper Article] — People — 28 September 1901
THE GLASS WAR I Judges are reckoned by fakir politicians and gullible innocents to be extremely impartial persons, whose one overwhelming desire is to ladle out pure and unadulterated justice for a trifling consideration of some golden thousands per annum, with an Old Age . pension that amounts to 5U per . cent, of full pay rates. The intolerant section of the community, who understand the class war, declare that judges springing from the capitalist class, act almost always nnder the in fluence of their class interest* and environments. The other day in Victoria the trustees of an estate of a girl with L260, subject to the condi tions of a will, made application for permission to Bpend L80 in pro viding her with a musical and general education. The girl didn't belong to the ' wealthy lower orders,' and Judge Madden, in refnsing the application, said ' the world was infested with women who wanted to be governesses, ohiefly with the object of deeming to be more respectable than , they...
Let Him Ask. [Newspaper Article] — People — 28 September 1901
Let Him Ask. B. R Wise : ' Nothing seemed simpler to a business man than the term value The value of an articl was what he could gat for it, but let him ask himself whence this value came ' Yes, let him ask himself, and he will fiud that under normal conditions the necessary social labor embodied in the com modity is in its valne. It is surplus value produced by labor and appro priated by the capitalist in the form of profits — rent, or interest — that enables the capitalist olass to live, and keep the parasitic brood of writers, artists, scholars, politicians and lawyers, who chloroform the workers with speoious arguments and false conceptions. S.A. Council passed the Snow tramway Bteal in one day. Upper I Houses are very useful as a check on hasty legislation.— 'B. Truth.'
So Say We. [Newspaper Article] — People — 28 September 1901
So Say We. The ' Sunday Times ' says : 'Perhaps this anaemic, perpetual portfolio evolution is to be the recognised par.iamentary plan of the future, bat we confess to a hankering after clear-cat lines, the solid ranks, the vigorous debates, and ttie rea-oorpusclea virility ot the good, old-fashioned party sys tem.' And so say we. When the Socialist Labor Party reaches the Parliament, there will be olearcnt class-lines, and solid ranks. Virility and honesty in tbe service of the working-closs, recognising that that there is no machinery but party that can organise opinion and interests, and translate them into action at tbe ballot box, and thence into enactments in the Parliaments of tbe State and Commonwealth.
TANGLED THOUGHT. AT THE TRADES HALL. [Newspaper Article] — People — 28 September 1901
tangled thought. AT THE TRADES HALL. At the last meeting, members of Sydney Labor Council protested against the method in which the Ironworkers Assistants' TTnion had 1 acknowledged donations to the recent strike fand, and a resolution was carried asking the anion to submit a revised balance-sheet, and also requesting that the Iron workers' Executive should meet the Executive of the Council to amicably discuss the matter. During the evening Mr. Forning moved that the Council express its. sympathy with the American people in the loss they had sustained by the death of McKiniey. He said McKinley was a rattling good man for the workers. Mr. Quinn seconded, and was Hnderstood to say that the cause of the trouble was the foreigners who went to America from despotic conntriep, and imagined they were going to be oppressed in the land of freedom just as they had been op pressed in their own countries. So they started out to shoot Pre -idents and other such high game. He thonght it was their...

Wanted Virility. [Newspaper Article] — People — 28 September 1901
Wanted Virility. Hbnrt W. Lucy, in his London letter to the ' S M. Herald ' writes: 'The first Parliament of the new century, still in its lustiest youth, is in a very feeble way It seems, if prorogation does not come soon, the House of Commons will die of inanition.' This capitalist soribbler fails, or refuses, to recog nise that it is in , a feeble way because there is no effective opposi tion, the result of no diversity of interest among tbe members. Con servatives and Liberals were wittily defined by a Spanish General. ' Conservatives,' he said, ' are great robbers and thieves ; Liberals are great thieves and robbers.' The House of Commons will be come virile when the workers return class-conscioas Socialists, demanding the abolishment of the brutal capitalist system and the erection — in its place — of the just and humane Socialist Co-operative Commonwealth.
