THE WHITE MAN'S CHRISTMAS. With apologies to Longfellow's " Hiawatha." [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 31 December 1910
THE WriiTE MAN'S CHRISTMAS. With apologies to Longfellow's ' Hiawatha.' On, tlio luckltess, dreary ijiminiur, Oli, the workless, weary earnur! Ever searching, searching, .-uardiiiig Town to town he's ever inarching. ' Ever poorer, poorer, poorer— Ho is moving o'er the .landscape. Heru, there, like derelict drifted, Through the city, through the village Vainly walked he ever onward, ' Sought for work, or bread, and found n.uie Saw no hope tor wife and children, Save the horrors of the workhouse!' Oh! the wailing of the children: Oh ! the anguish of the women : Hungry was the air around thorn , Hungry was the sky above them;' While the shops wen brightly lighted Stored with everything they wanted, ' Waited they to be invited, Did they parley at the doorway: Waiting for a word of welcome! Looked with haggard eyes and hollow At the good things there before them. ' (.Jive to us, Mammon the Mighty!' Cried they with each voice uplifted: ' Give us food or we must perish.' Through the busy s...
Some Queensland Notes. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 31 December 1910
Some Queensland Notes. ? + ? BY H.L.D. The gevms of industrial organisation are quickening throughout the whole of Queensland; on every hand the workers are showing unmistake tible signs of unrest. During December a conference was lmlil at Townsville of the North, Cen tral, and Southern Queensland, for the purpose of bringing more into the line of action many industries that, although interdependent from a capitalist viewpoint, are each or ganised upon a craft basis. It was decided to have perman ently in the field of action an organ iser for each district. By this means many districts that were not previ ously organised will have the organ iser working among them, and in those parts where there were two or three organisers each working for his own craft union, there will now be one organiser working to consolidate all the workers. Still the anomalies of craft organis ation make themselves painfully manifest at every industrial uphea val. * * * Son:e twenty weeks ago the iron moulde...

Cancer: The Crab! [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 31 December 1910
Cancer : The Crab ! HY DAN' DEMOS. Tun zodiacal sign — Cancer, the Crab -is the emblematic sign practically adopted by the Colliery Employees' Federation as a result of the recent ballot for the presidency of the C.E.F. That is to say that the C.E.F. has decided to march backward. Peter Bowling, .Socialist, Industrial Unionist, and Fearless *\T*1i4-(t*t4- lino tiAfn-t rnian^-ofl miri ATi* David Watson, ex -professional pulpit punch er, and -Anti-Industrial Unionist, elected. This is as it should be. For several years past the Federation has been acting most inconsistently in electing as its head a man who possesses brains, courage, and deter- - urination; and who is consequently a So- j cialist of the deepest dye. He has been try- ' ing for years to prove, by precept and actual practice, that arbitration as applied to in dustrial disputes is a rank failure. But he has been casting his economic pearls before swine, who now turn and rend him. He has spent time and talent in endeavorin...
Socialist Fables. Napoleon Blenkins. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 31 December 1910
Socialist Fables. Napoleon Blenkins. BY W.K-W. Xai'olkox Blknkins had just got married and commenced housekeeping. As his name implies, he came of lighting, soldier stock, and each morning he scanned the paper eagerly for anv war news, or rumors of wars which might be looming on wit; »iui my puuns in uie euiioriai imagina tion. Early in his marital career he struck an editorial article on war and the promotion of peace, the writer of which asserted that the best way to promote peace was to be pre pared for war. The brilliance of this idea so filled the mind of Napoleon that he reflected long and seriously on it, and finally decided that the maxim which was good for a nation was also good for the family and the individual. No sooner had he grasped this idea, than he set to work to give effect to it. First, he had his back -yard and garden enclosed by a stone wall eight feet high. On the top of this wall he had broken bottles and jagged pieces of glass cemented, so that his neigh bors...

Open Column. Some Questions Answered. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 31 December 1910
Open Column. Some Questions Answered. Hahuy J .Pottkh writes: With reference to the article in Thk L\TKKN.\TroNAL .Socialist head ed ' A Constitutional Socialist,' and signed 'J. Blunientlial,' I would esteem it a favor if you could give me some information as re gards the following questions : 1 . Is Mr. J. Blumenthal the same gentle man who stood for selection as a candidate in the Labor Party's interest for the Went worth seat at the last Federal Elections? '2. Is it the same Mr. Blumenthal who en deavored to gain the P.L.L. selection for the Waverley seat at the last Federal elections? 3. If the foregoing facts are correct, does it not appear that Mr. Blumenthal would have been very willing to be an ' opportunist,' as he now terms Mr. Morrish, if only he had received the selection and endorsement of the Political Labor League? I think it is only right that the above facts should be made known. .J. Hlu.mkxtiial replies: The expected has happened! I am exposed! Like all base villa...

A Column of Clippings. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 31 December 1910
A Column of Clippings. Takt, of America, recently advised against making jails too comfortable, last there be a temptation to the poor to break into prison. A pessimist is a man who tries the game and gets beat at it; an optimist one^who rakes in the stakes. The real democratic party works for actual democracy, ieven for industrial democracy. Where is it? 'Civilisation' is a thing that produces larger armies and bigger guns than the world ever saw. ' Civilisation ' is a plan by which luxury exists — for the few, and hard work — for the many. Many men had rather work a year for their masters than five minutes to free them selves. „ Where is Harry Orchard? (asks the Appeal to Reason) . Was he let out to work up that Los Angeles Timas job? ' Civilisation ' is' the good news of hell on earth and a good time when you escape. The man who works gets a part of his product. The man who shirks gets the rest. The 'sacred ' rights of property are now spelled ' scared ' rights. Away with masters...
THE TOP OF THE EARTH. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 7 January 1911
THE TOP OF THE. .EARTH. This is a. song of the folly of man, who grqpes in the depths below. He digs deep down as far as he can, in the bottom-most stopes of woe. With the pick and bar and the fuse and drill he is gouging sadly now; He is chasing quartz for the hungry mill in stead of the useful plow ! With his air-compressor and timbered shaft he is sinking down to hell ; Oh, the ways of man, they are surely daft, and as cracked as an old tin bell! For the Top of the Earth hath a golden store that awaiteth the gatherer's hand; But the same old batteries clank and roar — hear the curse of the angry Land? They are sinking still or. a hundred fields, from the Towers unto Southern Cross; And they sink in vain for the ancient yields and they find but the same old loss? They are hoping hopes of a splendid lode, with a yard of gold per ton. But the devil guffaws in his warm abode, for he knows that the fields are done ! He can hear the picks on the roof of hell as they struggle with winze...

The Masters of the Bread. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 7 January 1911
The Masters of the Bread. kvKKvwiiKHK men, women and children stood in the market-place crying to the Mas ters of the Bread to take them to be their servants, that they might have bread. The strong men said, 'O Lords of the Bread, jiel our thews and sinews, our arms and our legs; see how strong we are. Take us and use us. Let us dig for you. Let us hew for you. Let us go down in the mine and delve for you. Let us freeze and starve in the joreeastles of your ships. Send us into the hells of yoUr steamship stoke-bolds. Do what you will with us, but let us serve you, that we may eat, and not die!' Then spoke up also the learned men and scribes, and the lawyers, whose strength was m their brains and not in their bodies: ' O Masters of the Bread,' said they, ' take us to be your servants and to do your will. We are fine in our wit, how great our know ledge; our minds are charged and stored with the treasuries of learning, and the sub tlety of all the philosophers. To us has Mi.i-.ii ^ven...
Germany. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 7 January 1911
Germany. An important victory has been gained at Breslau (local elections), where six seats have been captured in addition to the two already in the possession of our Party, while two more comrades are in the second ballots. In Frankfurt our Party has bad great suc cesses, eight Social-Democrats being elected; eleven Social-Democrats are in the second ballots. Our total vote was 1 7,000 as against over 20,000 votes polled by all the other parties together. The Socialist Weseineier, in Brunswick, has just entered upon the eight months' im prisonment to which he was condemned for offending Ministers in connection with the street fighting in January last. The Work men's Choral Society sang in the courtyard of the trade union headquarters, and Wese ineier made a speech from the window. On the following day, when he left the town, a procession about 10,000 strong filed past the dwelling of the Minister Rossmann, with cries of ' Hoch !' for Wesemeier and 'Pfui!' for Rossmann. On November ...
Spain. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 7 January 1911
Spain. ,1 he high hopes that were centred in Cane lejas, when he took over the Ministry, have not been realised. He has allowed himself to be influenced by the military party. ' It was they,' says Fabra Ribas, writing in I Huiiuinitc, ' who made him prevent the meetings which were to be held all over Spain m memory of Ferrer. It was they who pre vented ? illSt as Under the. M:ilir:i Mmiat™ ? the Socialist and Republican demonstrations against the new campaign being prepared for in Morocco. It was they, again, who had Professor Pvejers, of the Madrid University, imprisoned for daring to criticise the vices of the military caste. Now they arc taking from the young militant Socialists and other liter ary men the liberty to say what they think of the reaction which dominates Spain under every Ministry. Five of our young Madrid comrades are in prison for having partici mtcd in a meeting held lately in the Barbieri Theatre, Madrid. And several journalists, as for instance the Socialist, C...

How to Make Socialists. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 7 January 1911
How to Make Socialists. Oi;u reader.-- may sometimes do good service when articles appear in Tin-: Intukxatiosai. Socialist of special interest to particular suc tions of society, by purchasing a few extra copies ai.d posting them to persons directly interested. Articles are frequently appear ing which affoctsome particular section, and it would make, a mighty difference in a short time if eacli section affected had its interest aroused and quickened in this way. At pre sent much of our effort does not tell tu. the extent it might, but in the way suggested everyone might help in making Socialists. The silliest, stupidest old 'lie ever circulated for sonsation-inongering purposes and to awaken an immoral jingoism was tho fake about a plot to dynamite King Billy of the Barwon's fellow-monarch, George. The yarn was evidently fabricated to divert at tention from tho Bolton and other massacres on tho industrial field; but it was altogether too feeble a He. In saying farewell. to the prin...
Reflections on Yuletide. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 7 January 1911
Reflections on Yuletide. HV A.I AX. )\ hktiikh the legend of Christ is founded on lacl or fa bio is immaterial. One thing is certain. Pulpit-pounders in all ages and chines have taken advantage of the fact that mankind throughout the dark ages of slav ery and misery has stumbled blindly towards ti»e goal of human freedom buoyed up with the hope that a redeemer would arise and usher in tho day of universal happiness. Whenever any radical economist has come to fulfil the churchmen's prophecy, they have always been the first to denounce him as a dreamer; yet they assiduously preach the dream of a Saviour, well knowing no indi vidual can bring tho masses out of bondage. Thus the seed of superstition is sown, and we find that after centuries of dismal failure on the part of orthodox Christianity, the old-time platitudes are prated and the poor exhorted to take their sorrows to the Lord in prayer. The ancient superstitions and customs connected with Christmas (including the star that shon...
