South West Africa. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 31 December 1910
South West Africa. Voi'iavi'ls is now in a Dosition to give de tails regarding the revolt of KalKr workers in German South West Africa, from which it appears that the Kaffirs were simply driven to desperation by the management of the railway -which is under construction.

Adelaide Register: Its Shriek. Onk issue of the dismal old Adelaide Register resolved itself into a prolonged squeal of 'murder' during the recent carters' strike, with an occasional threat that the capitalists would arm themselves and kill somebody if things didn't alter. The following: extracts are published, not because any one takes the Register seri «..o»j , i^nt in umci wiii people ouisiue oi Adelaide might have something to laugh at in their spare moments : ' Is South Australia a free British com munity, or has it become a dangerous hunting ground of mischievous and un-; scrupulous demagogues who ridicule aud' defy all laws which do not accord with their own perverted ideas?' ' Revolutionary Socialism has been in creasingly atrgressive, and the resistance of the Labor Party to its influence has visibly weakened.' [This is one little flash of truth in a great big flame of idiocy.] 'The industrial troubles now occuring are directly fostered by persons who are, mad enough to bel...

Smouldering Fires at Broken Hill. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 31 December 1910
Smouldering Fires at Broken Hill. IIY A HKVOUTTIOXAHV. Tiik working-class of the Harrier has again been betrayed by the alleged working-class party in the Council known as the Labor Party. A few years ago, this party decided to victimise some of .the militant unionists in the Municipal Employees Union. . The men bad kept this union alive, and thus be csime a menace to the Labor Party in the Council. The La-kr Party being the domin ating factor, then protested against being dictated to by these wage-slaves, so they de cided, not directly, but indirectly, to get rid of the revolutionary wing by means of vic timization. They were too cowardly to do it as a party, but did it through the Labor Mayor, Long, who politely dismissed these wage-slaves one Saturday. The union held a meeting that night, and unanimously decided to call all the employees out on the following Moncky morning. The employees responded splendidly to the call. Even the clerks in the office came out and made common caus...

Britain. The S.D.P. .special' effort hind' bad reached £-135 8s 7d on Noy! 19. . H. M. Hyndman sent the following letter '. to the editor of- the Pall Mall Gazette: — 'Sir,— I observe that you make it a very great point against the Irish Nationalists that Mr. Redmond has returned from his tour on the other side ot tne Atlantic witn ?200,000 dollars of American money. Would it not be of interest just now to tell us how many hundred thousand dollars of Ameri can money your proprietor, Mr. William Waldorf Astor, has 'subscribed to the Anti Socialist League and other reactionary or ganisations in order to influence English po litical opinion? In these cases, I take it, American dollars non olent.' Needless to say, the Gazette was silent. Justice prints an article by Ben Tillett on 'The Passing of David Shackelton,' the Labor member who recently accepted a well paid job from the Liberal Government.
The Passing Show. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 31 December 1910
The Passing Show. CONDUCTKl) BY OTUS. JIeckntlv the Killingwortli miners' lodge asked the Labor Government to provide re lief works in that district, the mine having onlv worked intermittently for many months and having been dosed down alto gether for two months, while the recent ex plosion there has rendered the resumption of woi-k a very remote possiDihty. The miners have homes in the district, and it is an im possibility for them to leave to seek work in other centres without .involving themselves and their wives and children in want and very great hardships. After having notified the setting apart of an infinitesimal sum for two local works, Labor-member Griffith proceeded to point out 'the anomalous po sition of a Government being asked to provide relief works for able-bodied men. while great public works are being hung up for want of labor, and while an almost univer sal demand is being made from all parts of the State for theimportation of immigrants to enable the industries ...

Sabotage. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 31 December 1910
Sabotage. 15 V AfSTIX I.KWIS. A -*ew factor is arising to complicate or perhaps to simplify the labor struggle. It has a slang French name, because it arose first in France in a practical form, and because there is at least one French paper, La Gnaw Sociale, devoted to its pro paganda. Sabotage is in brief the destruction of the property of em ployers by employees in pursuance of a definite revolutionary policy. Such property may belong to the Government or to an individual. All capitalistic property is indeed the ob ject against which the French anti militarists under the leadership of Gustav Herve direct their efforts. Soldiers are called upon to destroy the arms and the equipment of the Government, and to render useless the materials of war as far as they can venture to do so. They are di rected to lose necessary mechanical parts of the rifles and guns, and to throw out of gear the myriad me chanical contrivances upon the har monious relations of which the suc cess of any army ma...

Italy. The Italian Government has prepared a liill extending the franchise to all who can read and write, adding 1,51)0,000 voters to the electorates. This will still leave a great proportion of the people voteless. Capital ism prevents the workers from learning to read and write, and then penalises them be cause they can't read and 'write.

Insurrection Rather than War. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 31 December 1910
Insurrection Rather than War. I!Y CJUSTAV HEKVE, IN ' MY COUNTRY, IUGHT OH WKONU.' What is a country? For anybody who is not satisfied with words, or anjbody who wants to forget for a moment the fantastic definitions of a Country which have been taught him at school, a Country is a group of men living under the same laws ; because they themselves or their ancestors have been brought willingly or by force, more often by force, to obey the same sovereign, the same government. Patriotism groups men according to their land of origin, as decided by the vicissitudes of history; within every country, thanks to the patriotic link, rich and poor unite against the foreigner. Socialism groups men, poor against rich, class against class, without taking into ac count the differences of race and language, and over and above the frontiers traced by history. * *' * To the poor, to the crowds of lesser civil servants, small traders without credit, peas ants without capital, the propertyless mass and...
