But just M soon as the bosses combine into larger concerns we. might as well try to spit at the moon as to beat them with the boyeot or the strike. They'll wallop us every time.

SPLENDID TACTICS BY FERRY WORKERS. STRIKERS WHO WON. [Newspaper Article] — People — 16 November 1901
SPLENDID TACTICS BY FERRY WORKERS. STRIKERS WHO WON. Eably on Sunday morning the profit-making operations of 'Major' Randel Carey and his friends were suddenly paralysed in the ferry boat service by a, determined strike for eitner increased wages or shorter hours for the deck hands and fire men workiosr on the Manlv boats. More than a month ago these workers applied for an increase of £1 per month, or failing that a re duction in the number of hours they worked. Few people are called upon to toil for a longer period in each week than are the ferry workers ; but their appeal in this direotion met with no satisfactory answer, and, with the King's birth I day celebrations only a day off, they determined to make a stand. Holiday season is the time when profit-grinders in the ferry-boat line reokon on making a haul, and their consternation can better be 'imagined than described when they, found the Manly boats motionless at the wharves — and two holidays likely to slip by in the meantime...
A Vision. [Newspaper Article] — People — 16 November 1901
A Vision. In the winds of the night are singing The storms of coming years, And the dark of the sky is ringing With curses and groans and tears. And loud is the mighty throbbing Of the Nation's giant breast T?n»- nvnninor millinna anhhino In Labor's hopeless quest. There are children and women crying For shelter and for bread — There are bodies of strong men dying By the bodies of strong men dead The spirit of Freedom is weeping — The Lord of the world is sad — The Right of the Earth is sleeping While the Wrong with Hell laughs glad. The pain of the land is growing — The woe of the land is deep - ? Oh 1 who hath the wind been sowing That these should the whirlwind reap ? The sun and the stars are hidden With the smoke of the storm's black breath, And the False o'er the true hath i ridden I In a chaw of Night and Death. j ? ? ' ? ! O God 1 'tis a dreem, and we're mak ing From this nightmare of pestilent greed I To the light of the white day breaking On the Soul of the people freed.
OPEN COLUMN. Tramway Workers. (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — People — 16 November 1901
OPEN COIjUMN. Tramway Workers. (to THB EDITOR.) Recently I noticed in one of the Sydney daily papers, that the Tram way Employees had waited on the Minister for Railways, also the Commissioners, regarding their hours of labor yet without any satisfactory results, and we have it in black and white that Mr. Mo Gowen had this bill (eight hours for Tramway Employees) passed through the House of Parliament. Why has it not become law ? Why deprive the men of the few honrs of recreation or rest ? I say while all this hanky panky business ? Something darn rotten somewhere, and sorely its not on the part of the men. There's a screw Ioobo somewhere. One would most naturally expect that Mr. McGowen would see to this, and fight the matter out for the men at all hazards. He went into the House for that purpose, then why not oarry it out ? He tabled the Bill and he is the party to see it ont Let me state there is no Union ism in this sort of business. Let the matter be again brought before the Ho...

He said the people had been ? tailed together to hear the Social ' iite' answer to the baseless charge that Socialism and Anarohy are lynonomous terms, and that the logical outcome of Socialistic teach ing was violence and assasination, ; «nd that the best answer to and refutation of these charges was to ' tell the people what Socialism really was and what the methods of Socialists really were. - Anarchists he Baid believed in ; voluntary co-operation without re r gtrictions ; they believed the evils of to-day spring from restrictive laws and theref...

"WHERE WE STAND." [Newspaper Article] — People — 16 November 1901
' WHERE WE STAND.'. Ok Sunday evening* at Marx TT»1I, Mr. A. Thomson lectured on the above subject, General Trea surer Clark be.ng in the chair. ? ? The bulk of those who spoke for the workers didn't seem to stand anywhere particularly, said the lec turer. This was so in the case of the trade-union leaders and also in that of the elected Parliamen tary representatives. In the va rious State Parliaments here no member had ever spoken clearly on the working-class question. They didn't seem to know where they had come from, where they now stood, or where they were going to. A journalist who had once used the Socialist movement as a stepping-stone had said that the A S.L. was all generals and no followers. That was so, and that was one of the places where the Socialists stood. The Socialists wanted to build up a system of society in whioh every man and woman would be able to add their quota according to their ability. That was the kind of democracy that they wanted. They did not want a ...
FROM SOUTH AFRICA. [Newspaper Article] — People — 16 November 1901
prom SOOTH aFEiea. O. M. Barlow is in receipt of a letter from a friend at Pietermarifz burg, Natal, dated October 8, from whioh the following items are taken : This colony of Natal is looking forward to great advantages from the conquest of the k epublics. It in boned that a Dart of the territory of each will be lopped off and added to this colony. Why this should produce any great excitement if it took place— which is rather un likely — cannot be readily under stood, exoept perhaps on the prin ciple of the Imperial policy of 'British expansion.' The local idea of a big colony is only the im perial idea of a big empire. This colony is quite large enough at pre sent for many timeB its white popu lation. But it has a very con siderable population of coolies and Kaffirs. Indeed, Natal is rapidly becoming a black man's country. Indians are simply pouring'in under the Indian immigration law, and although supposed to be returned to India on the expiration of their agreements, it seems no...

MECHANICAL FORCES OF REVOLUTION. [Newspaper Article] — People — 23 November 1901
MEeHANienL FORGES OP REVOLUTION. In the Glasgow Exhibition may be seen many striking illustrations of the growing universality of manufacture. A notable instance is that presented by the Machinery. Hall, where some of the latest specimens of machine and engi neering tools are exhibited. There is a very fair display of British made tools of this olass, but they are very far indeed behind the Amerioan exhibit, in which is shown every type of machinery necessary for produoing all kinds of meohanioal plants. In the field of so-called labor-saving machinery there is no doubt that America holds the first place, and the reason for this obviously lies in the high wages whioh have prevailed in the states. Where wages are high the tendency always is to im prove the mecban cal appliances so as to do the work with as little labor as possible ; not, of course, in the interest of the laborer, but in the interest of the employers, who have no particular desire to save labor, but every desire to sa...
