TIMOROUS T1NTIN* NABDLATIONS. AT THE TRADES HALL. On Thursday, of last week, Mr. Morris (of the Glassblowers) fore shadowed trouble in his trade unless a definite settlement was arrived at by Monday n,ext. COACHBUILDEBS' CONFLICT. Tlia r nnaoViVinililara mnnrfced trouble at Pople's establishment, where the employees had joined the union, and were now demand ing 48 hours' work, instead of 54. %s heretofore. They were simply asking for reduced hours, not for increased pay, and the employer was willing to concede the eight hours' day, but wanted to reduce the wages proportionately, said wages now ranging from 30a up wards. The union executive had waited on Mr. Pople, but had been told to '? get,' and had the door slammed in their faces. Mr. Moroney moved that the Council give its moral support to the Coachbnilders, and that the officers of the Council wait upon Mr. Pople in connection with the trouble. The motion was' seconded, and the Coachbnilders' delegate said he understood that in...
THE SWEATING OF THE WAITRESS. THE HOURS SHE WORKED. A COURT CASE. [Newspaper Article] — People — 2 November 1901
THB SWEATING GP THE WAITRESS. THE HOURS SHE WOUKED. A COURT CASE. At the Contral Police Court on Friday of last week. Inspector Bonarius (of the Labor Depart menb) summoned Frank Taverna, a restaurant keeper, of 615 George-street, Sydney, for having worked two waitresses more than 60 hours a week, which is the duration of the working week be' e volently decided by a paternal government composed mainly of sweaters and slave-drivers and fleecers of human sheep. The only difference between Taverna and the multiplicity of other proprietors of both cheap and costly eating-houses is that Taverna allowed himself to b found out, while the others escape, principally because the employees are terrorised by the fear of being blacklisted — and consequently by the Fear of Want — into contract ing out of the provisions of the Act. 'I his is a condition of things the Hotel and Restaurant Employees Union might alter very consider ably with a little effort. Whether that effort will be made remains t...

TRAMWAY WORKERS. BEFORE SYDNEY LABOR COUNCIL. BOGUS LABOR PARTY FOUND OUT. COUNCIL DOES THE COR RECT THING. On Thursday evening of last week a deputation from the Tram way Employees Union told a tale to the Labor Council that might have surprised the ordinary well meaning fool who is prepared to still believe that the Bogus Labor Partv led bv Mr. McGowen is capable of honest or intelligent effort on behalf of the workers. But the incident was not surprising to the people to whom the history of N.S.W, Labor movement is an open book. THE WORKERS* CASE. Mr, D. McLeay, president of the Tramway Union, after explain ing what had already been done and what were the Tramway men's plans f-r the future, said that mem bers of the union felt that the labor party had not used the power they possessed in the State Parliament, and the nnion had practically been ^ forced to bear the burden of extend- . ing the system to the railway and tramway service. The union had approached the Minister for Rail...

GERMAN SOCIALISTS. GROWTH OF THE PASTY IN THE PAST FEW YEARS. The following article is from the j New York ' Tribune,' and while it j gives no indication of the changes &nbsp; which are going on in the German &nbsp; Social Democracy, it does give a passable presentation of the party as it must appear to one who views &nbsp; it merely from the standpoint of ftiA Drusnfaf/tfi ? Wiesbaden, July 30. The recent election for the Beichstag at Memel-Heid^rug was a most significant example of the rapid increase of Socialism in Germany of late years. Since the elections of 1898 the Socialist vote haB increased 50 per cent in the district of M emel- 1 eidtkrug ; this is only the latest instance of the growing power of the . Collectivist part ' in Germany. The Demo cratic-Socialist party is to-day the strongest political party in the &nbsp; empire Its power has continually increased in the last thirty years. &nbsp; At the general elections for the Reichst...

Isaacs presided and opened with a short address, after which Comrade Batho took Hp the run n'ng and was attentively listened to. Comiade Drake spoke at some length on the federal tiriff. He pointed out that, notwithstanding the Barton tariff would reduce the standard of living of tbe workers who had no surplus, it was what they themselves had asked for when they accepted the Federal Constitution Bill with the Braddon Blot. Despite the fact that Free trade T?eid was loud in professing to Btand out for the poor worker, and wanted the Barton Tariff re jected, he was not more sincere than was Mr. Bart n in the workers' interest. They were both the mouthpieces of the capitalist class, and were out to guil the workers as they had done in the past. If the working class wished for improvement in their condi tions, they themselves must per form the work. They must f...

Knowledge of the facts of our economic environment to-day ; knowledge of the econo mic conditions of the pant npon which is built up a sound theory of economic development in the future. It was this knowledge of past development and the con ditions existing in his time (over 50 years ago) that enabled Karl Marx to foretell with su...
