SAID MY SOUL: "IT IS A LIE." [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 24 December 1910
SAID MY SOUL: ' IT IS A LIE.' I i.ooKHD from out the grating of my spirit's dun geon cell, Ami I saw the life-tide rolling with a aulle:i angry swell, And the battleships were riding like leviathans in pride, And the cannon shots were raining on the stormy human tide: . Then my soul looked up to God with a woebe clouded eye — .Said the world, ' This is from heaven;'' said my soul, ' It is a LIE.' I looked from out the grating of my spirit's dun geon cell, And a sound of mortal moaning on my reeling senses fell, And I heard the sound of lashes and the clank of iron chains, And 1 saw where MEN were driven like dumb cattle o'er the plains. Then my soul in anguish wept, sending forth a wailing cry — Said the world; 'This comes from heaven;' said my soul, 'It is a LIE!' I looked from out the grating of my spirit's dun geon cell, And I heard the solemn tolling of the malefactor's knell; And I saw the frowning gallows reared aloft in awful gloom, And a thousand eyes were staring at a fello...

Ferrer's Modern Sbhools in Mexico. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 24 December 1910
Ferrer's Modern Sbhools in Mexico. TRANSLATED KKOM THK SPANISH 1!Y 1-. W. MONTliOMEKY. It will soon be a year since Francisco Ferrer died, assassinated by the ene mies of civilisation at Montjuich, in Barcelona. The rationalistic schools founded by him closed their doors in obedience to the brutal command of the Spamsn trovernment. ana nis books— sources of .ideas and healthy knowledge — were burned by fanatics. Only a few copies were saved, and these we have kept with the hope that new editions might be printed to endow the schools that already are beginning to be formed through the efforts of various groups of Mexican workers. When I had news of the crime of Montjuich, a great desire impelled me to protest, but not in the declama tory manner which, having been re peated at every attempt of despotism, has become useless and may be re garded as the dashing of sea-foam against a granite cliff. My protest was that of action. I proposed then to the workers of the Mexican race the estab...
The Fathers of the Church. On Private Ownership. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 24 December 1910
The Fathers of the Church On Private Ownership. Tn Kin-: were no half measures about some of the '' Early Fathers.' Their authentic expressions on the question of- private ownership are still written up, that even the modern rich man and prelate may read. ? To the Christian Congregations -of .'Aus tralia we commend a few quotations from biii; i.i..ii;niiiy.-- in tiiu omuls; ? \ St. Basil said: The rich man is u thief. This is straight off the mark. St. Basil deserved to be canonised. Me had the courage of bis opinions at least. St. Chrysostom observed: The rich a.re robbers; better nil tinny* trcre in common. . , What has his grace the Lord Bishop to say to this? And here is a nut from St. Clement for the Dean of Newcastle to crack: fni'/uili/ alone lias created 'private property. If he can get round St. Clement's defini tion of individual ownership, or over it, or under it, by any ecclesiastical reasoning, how is the good man going to face Saint Ambrose who goes further and asserts...

m Halfred's Soliloquy, nn BY DANDELION. If anyone ivfnml tu be a subject of the British Empire, the sooner he (jot nut of it the better.

' When T look back upon this truck My weary feet havo rounded, And call to mind times left behind, I fairly feel astounded. How one so shy could climb .so high And still continue rising, Whilst better fail, or go to jail, Is simply most surprising! It must be pluck, or may be luck, Or kind predestination; Or Destiny! It cannot be My worth or education. Or can it be Democracy, With minds confused as Babel, And labor leagues with dark intrigues Adore the 'Labor' label? Eureka! Yes, I must confes...

MAHMOOD, THE IMAGE-BREAKER. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 31 December 1910
MAHMOOD, THE IMAGE-BREAKER. Old events have modern meanings; only that survives Of past history which finds kindred in all hearts and lives. Mahmood once, the idol-breaker, spreader of the Faith, Was at Sumnat tempted sorely, as the legend saith. In the great pagoda's centre, monstrous and abhorred, Granite on a throne of granite, sat the temple's lord. Mahmood paused a moment, silenced by the silent face That, with eyes of stones unwavering, awed the place. Then the Brahmins knelt before him, by his doubt made bold, Pledging for their idol's ransom countless gems and gold. O'old was yellow dirt to Mahmood, but of precious use, Since from it the roots of power suck a potent juice. ' Were yon stone alone in question, this ?vviilllri rtlfJtiUf) mii -\rnll '' Mahmood said; ' but, with the block there, . Imy truth must sell. ' Wealth and rule slip down with Fortune as her wheel turns round; He who keeps his faith, he only cannot be discrowned. 'Little were a change of station, U ss of l...
