The Study of History. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 21 January 1911
The Study of History. — * — IJV W.H.W. Loud Chkij-isi-'ord, speaking to the N.S. \V. school teachers, declared that 'he regarded it as of supreme importance that the community should possess a sound historical knowledge.' He thought the teachers should take the children's thoughts back to Alfred the Great, who first formed the fleet of old England, and point out that it was the iieet of Elizabeth that destroyed the Armada, that it was Nelson at Tra falgar who crushed the hostile coali tion, and that one of the things they knew in these modern days was the advantage of straight shooting. But they CGuld remind the children that it was archery that won Crecy, Poi tiers ar,d Agincourt. A fine view of history the children would get from such direction, and one with plenty of red slaughter in it. And after the teachers were tired of dilating on Alfred the Great, and the doings of- the ileets, and the sailors and soldiers, they might study the life of the Great Christian king, Henry the Ei...

Social and Statistical Science. Notes on Papers read at the recent meeting of the Australasion Association for the Advancement of Science. It really seems a pity that papers such as were read on Jan. 11 in the Social Science section of the Australasian Association for the Advancement of Science could not he read in the evening, when, presumably, a larger and more representative audience might be secured. They dealt with questions of extreme interest to every citizen ; and the discussions following the reading of mich Daner would have been much more vi tal if the views of those representing the various classes of which society is at present composed could have been heard. But the wage-owner has no chance under existing conditions of attending scientific discussions, or of hearing and weighing the views of scientific experts; and it might be a matter worthy of consideration by the organisers of these annual meetings whether one even ing should not be set aside for the scientific discu...
International Notes. Germany. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 21 January 1911
International Notes. Germany. Tun trials of the men alleged to have taken part in the Moabit riots in Berlin at the end of September have been sentenced, one to 'Hi years imprisonment, another to a year and six months; the rest to terms varying from one to nine months. The Court reported that the police far exceeded their powers. The Landtag election in Reuss j. L. has ended in a great victory for the Social Democrats. In the first six districts in which the result was known they had cap tured five out «.f six seats, and were to take part in the second ballot for the sixth. The Social-Democratic vote has increased by 2000 since. last election. The General Commission of German Trade Unions has agreed not to receive any English workmen's deputation unless they bring a written introduction from the English General Federation of Trade Unions. This measure has been found necessary, in view of the way in which many deputations sent to Germany by the English employers carry on their studie...

Booted and Ready! What the Gas Strikers Just Missed. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 21 January 1911
Booted and Ready ! What the Gas Strikers Just Missed. Last wjok the Sydney gas workers downed tools to compel the re-instatement of their secretary, who had been pimped upon for week*, and finally sacked by the Co. ?The Co. alleged drunkenness against the secre tary; the union investigated, and declared the man had been victimised by the Co. for his unionism. Never before did a body of strikers occupy a position1 so strong. The Gas Co. was unpopular for many reasons; it has now to face the - opposition oi a rival (electric) lighting concern run by the City Council. \n fact, the, Gas Co. was wholly at the mercy of the unionists — who must have won right through. Tin! inevitableLabor-inemborseainoon the scene — Lawyer Beeby and lion. .Minister Carinichael. As soon as the Socialists read that the politician was on the job, they said: 'It's settled.' It was. When ' the gas workers struck, their demand was that the victimised man should lie taken back un conditionally. Mr. Beeby's soul r...
MY DREAM. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 21 January 1911
MY DREAM. fFoil'TlIK InTKIINATIOXAI. SoCI.WJsr.l HV II. 10. HOLLAND. a My dream is of Life's greater glory, | Tho depths of its fathomless deep: f'Tlie wind -wafted song of its story $? That's crooned for the workers who weep. 1 Yea!, Life with its joy of all toiling, fiwi'fit, rest, earth's cool and its calm: Black shades of the Night-time recoiling When Daylight comes laden with halm. TheDay-dawn, with rose-wreaths of splendor, Shall light all the lands of the free, When Science, unshackled, shall wend her Glad ways by the hills and the sea. 0, I dream not of glory that glistens Through folds of some star-spangled scroll, Dream never a throned God who listens Where Heaven's mad music may roll. My dream is of Life' a larger glory, The heights of its measureless steep: The thunder-crashed roar of its story That wakens a world from Us sleep.

The Passing Show. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 21 January 1911
The Passing Show. j CONDUCTED BY OTUS. ])k. Bhachaki), the French Government's representative nt Wallis Island, wlio readied Sydney recently, bus been saying some scathing things concerning the missionaries of every denomination. According to an exchange, the doctor flashes a little economic light on past fights between the 'black- bird' traders and the missionaries, which are described (and rightly so) as always having been a fight between those who wanted the kanakas for slavery in Queens land and those who wanted them for slav ery in the islands. Beautiful churches and missionary residences bedeck the islands, and these have all been erected by the un paid labor of the native. On Sundays the islanders are compelled to go to church four or five times, but they must not enjoy themselves. They are not permitted to smoke, dance,- bathe, play, or exhibit any signs of joy. The priests have been getting most of the money for the copra, and the natives have been doing all the work. To bu...

Behold Rebellion's thunders crash and roll About thee, and her wakened lightnings rend! Vainly for succor unto Wall-street send, For Mexico sweeps out froir- thy control. Rise, Valle National ! Rise, Yaquin host!— Confront this cursed Anarch in the ghost. Ye. sl-'tightered patriots! . . Within her tomb, He thought that he i ad buried Liberty— But lo, the grave-stone heaves and breaks, and She Rises anew in her mortal bloom. — Harkv KuAri1, in l!u-. Ap/-mtl lo ltea.1011.
Law and Morality. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 21 January 1911
Law and Morality. .a. — _ I5Y .1. IJI.fMKSTIIAI..' Law is the concrete economic, ex pression of the dominant class, by which the said dominant class out laws its political and industrial ene mies.. So thorough is this class teaching of respect for the law that in the majority of social insurrections it is capable of overawing the work ing-class with the implanted instinc tive fear of law. Only when the workers are reduced by the direst economic necessity, when they are forced either to starve or rob, does the fully awakened instinct of self preservation overcome all obstacles, and, in defiance of the weapons of warfare, they hurl from power atone effective stroke the class which has oppressed them. Then they take charge of the reigns of government themselves, or some opportunists turn the legislative machinery into a stream favorable to a middle class. What was previously a legal crime . against ' law and order' is now a moral act, and what might pre viously have been a moral act is...

"Bowling's Downfall." [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 21 January 1911
' Bowling's Downfall.' Jonx Andkkson, referring to the Sydney dailies' jubilation over the defeat of Peter Bowling, by a Methodist, local preacher, says, 'inter alia: 'Bowling has no use for coal owners, sweaters, and other useless people, but the majority rejected him for the ' living-wage ' party. Then, what is a living wage? The smell of an oil-rag, por ridge without salt, the husks of the corn? One thing will stand to Bowling, viz., the truth. Minority or majority, his objective has been to educate the Avorker up to the fact that he must achieve his own emanci pation. His message has been that it is the cat's intererest to live on the mice. Be tween civil and capitalistic tyranny, Peter Bowling hits had more than one man's share of the stripes of Mammon and those who smoodge to Mammon; but his message stands. So long as, one man has to beg of another leave to toil, civilisation cannot be other than a sham.'

A Shearing Shed Complaint. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 21 January 1911
A Shearing Shed Complaint. Alk. Bkhxahd writes: 'I wish to draw your attention to the methods adopted by . the foremen at shearing sheds throughout Australia affecting working men under their control. These foremen pretend to he in favor with the men by running down the manager, thus gaining to a large extent the confidences of the men. The foremen, act ing in harmony with this confidence, get some of the men to shear a number of the sheep 'for practice and neatness,' thus wasting time. The foremen have their , meals with the men, and there convey to the men, in an indirect manner, their feelings towards them, blaming any action they may take: to the displeasure of men on to the . . principal. While I was shearing .in the Queanboj an district, a man on. a motor-cycle arrived at our shed, ai.d asked, the foreman for a job. The /foreman, wishingjto get. the contract finished', '.and thinking the new-comer was out'of the. .ordinary, having a inoto'r:cyclo, gave him a start. . He took h...

A Column of Clippings. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 21 January 1911
A Column of Clippings. Thk poor are by design. The laziness of the masters, not of the poor themselves, is be hind it. The capitalist is a great comedian. He never passes a labor law without a joker at tached. While poor criminals go to jail, the rich criminals go to England to see the corona tion. Poverty is the evidence of insanity: the insanity being in the system. The capitalist is a master. The man who is bossed is a slave. . Capitalism makes a few workers clothe, house, and feed the world, and keeps as many other ncoplc idle. If all worked and got the full product of their toil, there would be 'more than abundance for all. No man can serve two classes, any more than ho can serve two masters. Keep that in mind, you representative of the working class, when you feel inclined to vote for a representative of the capitalist class. He cannot serve you and capital at the same time. There is only one problem worth consid ering — the ending of exploitation. Charity is the skim milk whi...
