A Column of Clippings. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 7 January 1911
A Column of Clippings. Tjib disfranchisement of women is an in heritance from barbarian war. Charity organisations and poor laws had no existence in primitive society. What is the study of Socialism but the study of human society — of civilisation and of man in his relation to it. Socialism will promote a higher moral ity. The enfranchisement of men is only par tial, for neither men nor women are given any voice in the management of the indus tries where they are employed. Socialist propaganda is reaching the sub merged masses who have never been trained to think, never tried to think, and never wanted to think. Tiider the present system, hardly any one can gain except by the loss or disappointment of one or many others. In a well-constituted community every one would be a gainer by every other person's successful exertions; while now we gain by each other's loss and lose by each other's gain. ' Each for all, and all for each.' There can be no despotism until some one can be bribed ...
Labor and Capital. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 14 January 1911
Labor and Capital. A. now years ago, in the wilds of New Mexi co, I was staying at a small hotel situated near some extraordinary springs of water. Tremendous volumes, boiling hot, issued from the bowels of the earth, and invalids from all over the West came into this wilder ness to bathe in the health restoring waters. A few old inhabitants hud piped the water on to the soil, and a few acres of barren desert had thus been turned into fabulously rich soil. One evening the director of a great rail road presented to me a plan by which we lioitldmake 'millions. Mesaid the soil there abouts was perhaps the most productive .in the world, and all it needed was water. He suggested getting hold of the springs and us 'ing them as sources of irrigation so that thousands of acres could be brought under cultivation. In order ' to get labor' he suggested ob taining the co-operation of the rail-roads and advertising all over the country and Europe thai fiee farms would be given to all who can i e...

Books, Magazines, and Papers. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 14 January 1911
Books, Magazines, and Papers. The R.P.A. Annual for 1911 has an article by Joseph McCabe on ' The Secret Philo sophy of Mark Twain. R- S. Ross, in the Jiullclin: 'The Bomb,' by Frank Harris, by some caprice of letters, has won but little notice, though published in 1908. To me it is a remarkable novel. It purports to bo the autobiography of one of the Chicago anarchists of 1886 — the one ?who threw the bomb and escaped. The real inwardness of agitatory phenomena has never been depicted better. 'The Bomb' clutolics at you. It is all sombre. It is proletarian pathos and tragedy. It is pri meval in its background of social savagery. There is no laughter in the book, but there is love and a man's titanic struggle against the elemental force of desire. This week the Sydney Literature Depart ment has a now pamphlet — ' Mental Dyna mite'— ready. It will be sold at 2d. retail, and brandies will be supplied at a whole sale rate, with special terms for large orders for propaganda purposes. Th...

Belgium. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 14 January 1911
Belgium. On the opening day of Parliament the So cialists demonstrated against Clerical rule and plural voting. Many thousands marched the streets singing revolutionary songs, with cheers for equal suffrage and demands for the dissolution of the Chamber. There were banners everywhere. When the royal car riages came along the faint cheering of the loyalists was drowned by the mighty voice of the people with cheers for equal suffrage and cries of ' Dissolve! dissolve!' They smoth ered the king's carriage with printed leaflets bearing their demands. Inside the Chamber the king had a remarkable experience. The Socialist deputies greeted him with stormy cries demanding dissolution. Several times he attempted to speak, but the tumult made this impossible. At. last the king succeeded .in. reading, his speech; in the course of which he was1 repeatedly interrupted by the Social ists.-
From India's Coral Strand. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 14 January 1911
From India's Coral Strand. Last week's cables brought news from India that the young Hindu scholar and agitator, Savarkar, had boon sentenced to transportation for life, while the whole of his property is t-t be confiscated; one of bis comrades, Chandavarkar, is to be trans ported for l.r- years; and '!') others arc to undergo term.s of imprisonment that range from six months to seven years! This is British freedom, you know. Britain's rule — that is, the rule of British capitalism — in India is one unbroken record of rottenness, of tyranny and of shame; and there is probably little of it that is iiioiv. shameful than the persecution anir brutal treatment of Savarkar. Savarkar was arrested in England un a charge of sedition — 'there never was any suggestion,'' says Justice (London), 'that he was guilty of other than a political offence.' He was ordered to be returned to India, and was subjected to outrageous treat ment on the steamer on which he was placed a prisoner. At one stage o...
Russia. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 14 January 1911
Russia. Several thousand students, male and fe male, demonstrated in St. Petersburg against capital punishment. An infantry regiment and some Cossacks forced the. crowd back into the neighboring streets. The mounted police drew a cordon across the streets lead ing to the Nevski-Prospect. The crowd dis solved gradually, which was partly owing to the fact that the students from the Wassil jevski quarter could not get through to join the others. Later in the day a student fas tened a black flag, bearing an inscription : 'Away with capital punishment!' to a newspaper kiosk. Many such flags were carried by the demonstrators. In several places the police charged with drawn swords and forced the crowd back to the Nicolai Station. Outside the Anitschkoy Palace the demonstrators sang : ' Eternal Memory,' and a funeral march was played.
Japanese Socialists Sentenced to Death. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 14 January 1911
Japanese Socialists Sentenced to Death. Last week's mails brought word that Dr. Denjiro Kotoku and his wife and 21 others had been found guilty by the courts of. Japan of ' plotting against the imperial family,' and sentenced to death. The Iiilernntionnl Social i.sl, llcciew (Chi cago) says: ' Denjiro Kotoku is a man of high edu cation who has devoted himself to popular ising Western scientific and - Socialist ideas in Japan. He has translated the works of Karl Marx, Leo Tolstoy, and Peter Kropot kin into Japanese. Comrades write that the charge is wholly false, and we may well be lieve this to be trim,' as Dr. Kotoku and his colleagues are scientific thinkers who realize that the present-day ills of the working class are due, not to individuals, but to the capi talist system of exploitation.' From the Freedom Group of Anarchists, London,, the following appeal is sent to u.s for insertion in The Tntkiinationai. Social ist: In the name of humanity and inter national, brotherhood, we ...

Jaoan. A meeting was recently neld in London to protest against the death sentences passed on Dr. Denjiro Kotoku, his wife, and 24 other Japanese Socialists and Anarchists. Their offence was ' plotting against the Imperial family,' but this is merely the pretext for an attempt to crush out the working-class movement- in Japan.
A Cry from Mexico. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 14 January 1911
A Cry from Mexico. A lettek to The Lntku.vational Socialist from Los Angek's, Cal.. U.S.A., reads:' 'The shocking exposures of slavery, peonage, and political oppression in Mexico have called Forth an earnest protest from tens of thousands of people. There' is a widespread demand, in the narneof human ity, that something be done,: -and' -done quickly, and some have gone so far as to suggest armed intervention as a mean.; for putting a stop to the infamy. 'According to our information, Mexican slavery is only made possible, by. the mili tary despotism of Diaz, and this despotism is kept in power by the aid- of American capitalists and, the government of United States. By its persecution of Mexican poli tical refugees, and by its threat of interven tion in case of a serious revolution against Diaz, the United States has exerted a vital influence for the perpetuation of Mexican slavery. 'Three times during the last, two years the United States Government has' rushed an army to the Mexi...
India. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 14 January 1911
India. Savakar has been sentenced to transpor tation for life, and his property is to be confiscated. Chandavakar to transportation for 1 ') years; three others to 10 years each; and 2-ii others to terms of 'imprisonment varying from six months to seven years. In India the Jinglish capitalist has his path made clear for him, is given preferen tial, .treatment. To this the native capital ists have replied through their nationalist movement by advocating amongst other things a boycott of English goods. And to day the swadeshi, or boycott movement, is a most powerful instrument in destroying English trade with India and and in encour aging the native capitalist. In every town in India — in every town in the whole of the East — mills, factories, and workshops ;ire being built, machinery is being imported, native companies are being formed, and so:-n all the hellish horrors of capitalism, as we know them in this black Babylon of London, will hold sway there.— To.u Qiteluh., in,7n» tice.<...
The Cabmen Up Against It. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 14 January 1911
The Cabmen Up Against It. — * — BY H. K. HOLLAS 0. Most men recognise that the horse is fast slipping towards the scrap-heap. Many cab-drivers see the inevitably of things in this direction; some don't. But just at this stage the cabbies are up against the Labor Party — their own party — over the question of the humble driver of the horse and the wealthy owner of the taxi. The driver of the horse-cab is in a precarious way just now. He has to compete with the taxi — and the taxi is in the hands of big companies with money and influence behind them. The Napier Co. — the octopus of them all— has a capital of £200, 000. It is a London concern. Then there are Turner and Barrie, and the Sydney Taxi Co., and the others. One day, perhaps, the Napier will gobble the whole of the others up. That they have influence, even w'th Labor Parties, was demonstrated, the cabbies say, when the wealthy taxi owners' petition, with less than 50 signatures, was presented to Donald Macdonnell, Labor Chief ...
The Passing Show. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 14 January 1911
j The Passing Show. , CONDUCTED BY OTUS. Adelaide postal workers want three com missioners, instead of one, to boss them; they also object to proportional grading of telegraphists, fixed salary limitation, reduc tion of positions from clerical to general di vision, and other things. Mr. Patrick, of the Postal Assistants' Union, told the Labor member who is chief boss of the big sweatshop that ' the present retrenchment was unjustified and unwar ranted. The only conclusion to be arrived at was that the commissioner was introduc ing a system of sweating unparalleled in the history of Australia, or was proving himself incapable of estimating the postal assistant's duties.' Mr. Thomas was also told that, provided certain things were done, 'the officers would probably wait till February 1.' Other requests were for general division, night and day staffs, work with less broken time, increase of wages for all .officers, re tiring room, and better accommodation for the mail branch, a chimney...

NOW! ? 4 ? In spite of all tin*, follies of the day, In spite of wrongs tlmt cause the strong to fear, The truth is ever gaining wider ground, The love for all, grows stronger year by year. We view the wrong with deep regret, and yet. We know that evil shall not always reign. More live the Christ-life now, than e'er before. More heed the sound of suffering children's pain. Then trust, my soul, nor be dismayed by wrong, For rest assured that good shall conquer ill, Yet cee that thou with patience day by day Work for the right with all thy strength and skill. — VllTOK GAGE KlMlIKKT.
