The Socialist Press in Denmark. [Newspaper Article] — People — 28 September 1901
The Socialist Press in Denmark. The Sooialist press in Denmark has 17 newspapers or publications, which have 75,000 subscrib?rs ; there is also a weekly statistical review with 10,000 subscribers. At Copenhagen there is the ' Social Demokraten,' which has 42,000 subscribers ; it was founded in 187 1 by Louis Piv, with a capital of about £300, It prospers and return j about £1,600 profits a year. All profits are devoted to the work of propaganda, as tbe shareholders i receive no dividends. The editor, manager and some of tbe workers are elected annually, the writers receive about £3 a week and the editor £4 4s a week. The 16 pro vincial papers all belong to the company owning the ' Social Demokraten ' ; they are managed by a local committee, bat there is an appeal to the central oommittee. All these 17 papers are dailies, and it may be said that one-fourth of the population of Denmark reads some Socialist paper or other. There are also weekly and monthly publications, and these, with...

BINDING LABOR WITH BRUTAL CHAINS. [Newspaper Article] — People — 28 September 1901
BINDING LABOR WITH BRUTAL CHAINS. i Unwaveringly ana persistently we have fought Mr. See's capitalistic Arbitration Bill from its inception, because, understanding the scientific basis of the working-class move ment, -®e recognise in this Bill an attempt — with every promise of success — to lesally bind tbe limbs of or* anised lab -r with cast-iron enactments in the interests of the Capitalist Class In past articles we pointed out that tbe workers possessed two weapons — the Ballot and the Strike — with which to fight their way to industrial emancipa tion. Of these weapons, the Strike is certainly the le ser ; and yet, withal, it is at times a most potent | weapon. Present-day politics are devised on capitalist lines, because the majority of the workers do not yet understand their own economic position ; and because their parlia mentary representatives reflect all that lack ofknowledge thatcbaracter ises their constituents. A minority of tbe workers — mainly those whose acquired wor...
NON-UNION BREAD. CHEAP BREAD MEANS CHEAP LABOR. [Newspaper Article] — People — 28 September 1901
NON-UNION BREAD. CHEAP BREAD MEANS CHEAP LABOR. Recently the N.S.W. Operative Bakers' Association', after a deter mined effort, 1 succeeded in bringing their organisation up to a sufficient standard of strength to demand from the employer's a rate of wages and a working-day that meant a considerable improvement on the old conditions. Nearly all the master-bakers are now working under the new conditions. A few, however, are determined to fight ; the union and pei-pet.uate the old sweating conditions. Socialists and Unionists generally ate asked to n6te tte following list of Non Union Bakers published by the Operatives' Association : G.

WOMEN'S FRANCHISE BILL. [Newspaper Article] — People — 28 September 1901
WOMEN'S FRANCHISE BILL. The speeches of the Legislative C' uncillors on the above Bill cover some 33 pageB of ' Hansard,' but only one of the Councillors re vealed any deep knowledge of what is vaguely described by the profes sional politician as the ' woman ' ernes' ion. 3 The speech of the Hon. Benjamin Baokhouse, lifted from ' Hansard ' and printed below might truthfully be cited as the only clear note sounded during the whole of the debate in the House of Landlords : 'The Hon. B. Backhouse: I should like to give some reasons why I intend to vote for the second reading of the bill, but at this la^e hour 1 will be brief. One of the arguments used in this disussion against the extension of the fran chise to Wi-men is that it will mean the degradation of women. We have, however, already degraded women, and it is 'nly fair that we should give them an opportunity of redeeming themselves. In Victoria 16,000 women are working in fac tories instead of attending to their home duties. As a...

The Real Anarchists. [Newspaper Article] — People — 28 September 1901
The Real Anarchists. 'To Bucceed, war must be carried on earnestly, persistently, in the white heat of rage. You must hate your enemy, and be relentless.' '? What should be our moral pur pose ? The concentration of all our energy, all our anger, and all our hatred.' — *' Review of the Week' (church paper), April 14, 1900 ' There are mamby-pamby in dividuals in our midst to-day who think to build by pen and intellect the New Jerusalem in England's green and pleasant land. He who would learn to love must first learn to hate ; and the man who would shrink from using shot, shell, and bayonet, is a poor fellow who would become extinct by the operation of the law of the survival of the fittest.' — ' Church Times,' Decem ber, 1899. And one plausible parson has said that McKinley's assassina tion was due to the teachings of Socialism This paper never did have any love for John Norton or his un clean rag. But wouldn't it be just as well if George Black left it to some other social purist to ...

Lubricities of the State Legislature. [Newspaper Article] — People — 12 October 1901
Lubricities of the State Legislature. The Capitalistic Arbitration Bill, framed to destroy trades-unionism as an effective worbing-class wea pon, was before the House of Landlords last week The fact that the union demolishers regard the Socialist movement as the greatest factor to be reckoned with was freely advertised Mr. Wise read from the ?' S. M. Herald,' a report of the A.S.L. meeting held on September 8, and quoted a portion -of the resolution carried there. He endeavored to frighten the Capitalist opponents of the measure by declaring that since tbe Socialists opposed him they most recognize that they were al lying themselves with the Socialists. An effeminate person named i Cnllen hoped Mr. Wise would not ' pretend that this was not a 'Social- istic ' measure. The unscrupulous^ I ness of Mr. Wise was quite equalled by the unscrupuloasness of the landlords who opposed him. But the sensation of the debate was found in Mr. Wise's admission that ' everything the Socialist Party ...
BLIND WORKERS' TROUBLES. ANOTHER PLEA FOR STATE CONTROL. CHARITY BRUTALISED. STATEMENTS FROM THE BLIND. [Newspaper Article] — People — 12 October 1901
BLIND WORKERS' TROUBLES. ANOTHER PLEA FOB STATE CONTBOL. CHARITY BRT7TALISED. STATEMENTS FROM THE BLIND. With a Vigor that is both un abated and creditable do the blind workers of Sydney carry on their just protest against the conditions imposed on ~ them by Sydney's snobooraoy. STILL THKT COME. Since the publication of onr pre vious articles, we bave visited and also have been visited by some of the blind men. The first of these complains that he and others worked at the show groan da, daring the visit of the Duke of York, and noeived absolutely no overtime, notwithstanding that their work was performed daring the holidays. The teachers and others are said to have been paid for their overtime, though. Another grievance is the list of questions blind people are asked when seeking admittance to the in stitution. For instance, the appli cant is asked why he or she seeks to enter the institution — a qnestion that would, to an oatsider, appear to be superfluous. Then the appli cant is o...
FOR THE WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — People — 12 October 1901
PGR THE WOMEN. On the same day that the Federal Tariff — with its forced increase in the workers' cost of liv [ ing — came into operation in our I Capitalistic Commonwealth, the i organised wemen workers of Syd ' ney tailoring trade, presented to tbe employers a statement of the prices they will demand for their labor on and after Monday, Octo ber 21. rhose prices are, it ia true, a vast increase on the brutally low rates hitherto paid, and it is quite within the bounds of possi bility that the employing class will endeavour to ignore the increased cost of living and to persuade the women that the Statement soars too high altogether.. Now, as a matter of fact, even if the women secure the prices detailed in the statement, their conditions will still bs far from desirable,- and sweating will still exist in the clothing trade, for those new prices will, after all, only make possible for women workers a moderately bare subsistence Aa the rates now stand, in some of the estab lishments ...

About the Labor &om* missloners. ? ? o— ? . Some time back, Mr. Moroney moved that tbe Labor Council ask the Minister for certain information concerning the labor Commis sioners. The motion was amended to request Mr. Han Smith to get the information ; and on page 178 of 'Votes and Proceedings, '' the following appears : ' Mr. Sleath (for Mr. Samuel Smith) asked the Sec retary for Public Works : — (1) What are tbe names of the Labor CbmmiEsioners ; (2) What are the duties they perform ; (3) What powers are they invested with ; (4) How many meetings are held per week, and what fees do they each receive ; (5) What salary does the Chairman receive ; (6) The amount paid in fees to each Commissioner since his appointment ; (7) Is the Labor Bureau controlled by the I Commissioners; (8) Has the staff I of the- Labor Bureau been reduced or added to since tbe Commis sioners took control.

Socialist Picnic at Coogee. [Newspaper Article] — People — 12 October 1901
Socialist Picnic at @oogee. The Socialist Picnic eventuated on Monday last at Coogee. A dozen of the comrades made an early start, and secured a favorable spot on the Coogee Heights, and each succeeding tram brought comrades and friends, and the red flag floating proudly on the breeze guided them to ti e pic nic ground. . Cricket and other games wore indulged in by old and young, the concertina and accordion accom modated those who felt inclined to dance on the tnrf. When spread-time came it was demonstrated that the Socialists do not believe in fasting, the young sters made their presence felt at this particular time. All present enjoyed the outing, and it may be said that the ' discoutented ' sec tion of this vast community know how to make the most of bad con ditions. Whilst always ready to kick against existing obstacles, they manage to find time also for re creation. Fully 150 comrades and friends attended this impromptu,, picnic, while a crowded house at Marx Hall in the eveni...
