SWEATING THB BLIND WORKERS. ♦ THE DAILY - PRESS FIGHTS THE SWEATERS' BATTLE. FALSE STATEMENTS PUB. LISHED. The ' influential ' people who j ran the semi-charitable Sdney j Blind Institution are feeling the I effects of the agitation carried on I by the blind people, coupled with I the repeated exposures made in I these columns, ana nave called ia I the eervioFS of the capitalist daily I press to fight their ignoble battle I for them. And the daily preag, I which has never yet hesitated to I lie — when a He would benefit cap. I italist interests — has not hesitated I to lie magnificently in this cue. I But throughout the whole of the I matter published as an alleged I contradiction of the facts recently I made public by The People, and as I contained in a letter signed 'S. I Emery' in Monday's '?

Propaganda Work at Leichhardt. [Newspaper Article] — People — 2 November 1901
Propaganda Work at Leichhardt. A propaganda meeting was held in the above suburb on Saturday night last, a fairly large audience being present. Comrade G. Isaacs opened and drew attention to the fact that we were holding meet ings in the various suburbs, spoke on the want of organisation, and pointed out that the Socialists of the world were the only parties that clearly understood and gave expression to the! economic posi tion of the working class and the nature of the struggle for an existence. Comrade F. Drake briefly re ferred to the question of Federation, and showed that the stand taken by the Socialist Labor Party dur ing the Federal campaign was the correct one. Said that under the Constitution and the ' Br add 'n Blot,' £9,000,000 revenue would hare to be raised, and as neither Barton nor Reid wonld apply direct taxation it must come through the Customs. 'peaking of the capitalist system, he pointed out that under competition and production for profit the workers were being...

At the Central Police Court last week a witness, giving evidence concerning filthy language used by a ganger to a workman, said he was not very much shocked when he finnril t.hn Axnrpn.qimiK. Hfl had been twelve years on the Govern ment railways, a 'id such language was quite common Presumably, we suppose, because the patty bosses are the nominees of crooked poli ticians and reckon they have a license to use every filthy epithet in the vocabulary of ' civilisation !' Meagher typifies the incarnation and sublimity of hido bouud bras3 when he protests against Parlia ment being slandered. What would George Dean say about it 1 B.L.P. lost itself last week when the Estimates were truing through the State Pa'liameut?
AT CAPITAL'S CAPITOL. [Newspaper Article] — People — 2 November 1901
AT CAPITAL'S CAPITOL. '? I hold protectionist views,' B. L.P. Senator Biggs. Reprehensible Sydney Smith quoted from Frederick Engels, but didn't explain that EngelB (the Si-ciali-tj attributed the undesirable conditions contained in his extract to ttie ro- 1 cause or private owner ship in the means of life. Mr. Smi h was unscrupulous enough to endeavor to make it appear t.hit Engels * as denouncing protection. Following is the quote : ' Women and men enteebled, children deformed, limbs crushed, whole generations wrecked, affected with dise ish and iufirm ty, purely to fill the purses of the manufactu ers. Children seized naked in bed by the overlookers, and driven wi:h blows and kicks to the factory, their cloth ing over i heir arm*; how their sleepiness is driven off with blows ; how they fall asleep over their work ; children too tired to go home hide away in the wool in the drying room to sleep there, and could only be driven out of the t-ictory with straps; how many huadreds cam...
SWEATING THE BLIND. A PLEA FOR THE MANAGER LABOR COUNCIL'S OFFICIAL JOURNAL. RATS TO THE BOSSES. [Newspaper Article] — People — 2 November 1901
SWEATING THE BLIND. A PLEA FOR THE MANAGER LABOR COUNCIL'S OFFICIAL JOURNAL. RATS TO THE BOSSES. Sydney ' Worker,' official organ of the Labor Council, in its last issue, rats on the blind people as folio *8 A representative ef this paper visited the asylum in Boomerang street last Tuesday and waB shown over the entire premises by Manager Hedger. He also inspected the books of the institution, and these certainly did not bear out the statements pub lished in 'The Worker' of 5.10. '01. Therein the average earnings were stated as £38. That result was arrived at by dividing the amount paid away as wages during the past year by the number of inmates. It now aDDears that the number of workers now there is much over the average for the year, and that the women who live indoors are not paid wages, but in kind. Therefore the. calculation ' The Worker ' waB induced tu make was a misleading one. There appears to be no age limit when applications for ad mittance is considered. Of the latter ar...
THE DISHONESTY OF CAPITALISM: [Newspaper Article] — People — 2 November 1901
THE DISHONESTY OF enPlTALISM: One point of significance result ing from the newspaper ahriebing over the tariff should engage the attention of the wording-el -ss. Thn Sydney ' Daily TeUgraph ' has pointed out that, in anticipation of ttic federal tariff, for t' e last few months heavy importations have been made by the big firms so that the tariff mi^bt be evadfid. As soon a* the tariff wan announced, the different firms immediately added he duties (and proGc there on) to the price of the goods they had stocked some months before. This is a fair sample of capitalistic morality The menbers o1 these le*di- g firms are in many cases' shinitig lights in that church which is founded on the principle that they should do to others as they wi aid o (hers should dp unto them. The opportunity occurring they proceed at once to ' do ' the con j snming public, demanding from them the return of expenditure which has not been expended. While the head of one of the largest of thene firms is shrieki...
THE BOSSES' HOPE. IN THE TRAMWAY FIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — People — 2 November 1901
THE BOSSES' HOPE. IN THE TRAMWAY FIGHT. I When the tailoresses formalated their demands for batter conditions, and when there was a likelihood of the women finding it necessary to eea-e work for the purpose of secur ing better conditions, they dis covered ihut the bosses' hopes of de feating them were centred in the .SU.t. J ? : ? LI- vuui io ui a uuuiuci uj. uonpiuauio traitors to the working class move ment who deprecated their attitude, and led the employers to believe that the women and girls had no substantial backing. The tram way men are having the Rame ex perience. Their case is strong and their demands exceedingly proper. On Mr. McGowen's motion Parlia ment has decreed in favor of eight hours for all Government employees. Surely, if Mr. McGowen had been sincere when he tabled that ' motion, hecould hardly have thrown the weight of his influence — such as it is — against the men when before the Minister. His business should have been to force the Minister and Commissioners t...
STRIKES AND WAGES. THE "BULLETIN" BOGGED. [Newspaper Article] — People — 2 November 1901
STRIKES AND WAGES. THE ' BULLETIN * BOGGED. Thds, the 'Bulletin' of Oc tober 19 : — ^ The People, organ of tha Sydney Socialists, actually opposes the Com pulsory Industrial Arbitration Bill, because it will deprive the workers^ of 1 the right and power to strike. During strikes, it argues, the capitalists' divi dnnda cease, and this measure is a deeply-laid plot to prevent strikes. The little paper has got the revenge fever very badly— that's all. During strikes the workmen's wages — their dividends — cease also ; and tha workers have no reserve to live on, like 'the capitalists ; so ths workers wives and children suffer privations that those of their enemies never dream of, no matter how auccebsful the strike. Whatever victories Labor has gained by strikes have mostly been at such .terrible coat to the chil dren as to be hardly worth winning. In Maoriland the Industrial Arbitra tion Act has practically secured a minimum wage to every industry that has had the sense to organise and...

Daley (Lawyer and boss's son), who 'represents ' the Gipps workers in the State Assembl , re cently drew attention to the fact that a wharfltborer named She bang, had beome insane as the result of a fall down a ship's hold, I and that his wife had been sold up for rent arrears amounting to £8 8s., the sale realising 1 9s And that's how the workers are likely to be treated while they ler. ihe bosses represent them in Parliament. j Sydney ' Shirker,' the ' Labor !

THE LAW AGAINST THE BAKERS. A "BLACK" BAKER FIGHTS THE UNION. [Newspaper Article] — People — 2 November 1901
THE LAW AGAINST THE BAKERS. A '? BLACK ' BAKER FIGHTs THE UNION. Laws made by the capitalist class and administered by the capitalist claps are queer instru ments, as the Bakers' Union would appear to be finding out Last week Albert Rice Williams was nrnaentif-pil far Jiavin/v the establishment of J. E. Ross, of Young-street Annan dale. Ross is a member of the Muster Bakers' Association, and that body entered into a sole Tin agreement with the Bakers' Union to work certain hours, and pay fixed wages ; and, to render such an agreement possible, the Bakers' Union decided that it would call its members out of any establishment selling bread at less than 2jd. This waB agreed to by the Master Bakers, including Mr Ross; Eventually Ross reduced his selling price to 2d , and the j Union, in accordance with the terms of the agreement, called out the defendant. The magistrate ruled that the agreement was not legally binding on Ross, since it had not been made with the defendant personally. Ac...

Protestant Hall, — eastlfereagh Street, Sydney. MONDAY NEXT. H0V EMBER T Dnder the Auspices of the Australian Socialist League a . PUBLIC MEETING Will be held as above. ^Subject: WHAT SOeiALISM IS ? The following Resolution will be moved : That in the opinion of this meeting the present capitalist system subjects the workers to a life of wage-slavery, and degrades them to the level of merchandise. This wage-slavery being due to the Private Ownership of the land and the tools of production, the Socialist parties of the world demands that th$ land and tools of production Bhould be collectively owned and .operated by and for the people. So far, Socialists have advocated constitutional action through the ballot-box for the realisation of their objects. This : motion also directs attention to the unpardonably ignorant assertions made by men who should know better, that Anarchy and Socialism are identical ; and that assassination of prominent individuals ?? is the outcome of Socialist tea...
