"Found Guilty." [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 4 February 1911
'Found Guilty.' — a_ ? .Mil. J. C. Watson's verdict in the case of the Gas Co. v. Kerr brands the gas workers' secretary as a drunkard, declares he was in capable of working on the night ho was dis missed, pronounces the gas strike to have been altogether unjustifiable, and is wholly in lavor ot trie Lias Uo. — so much so that the Gas Co.s head iur..n. Lukey, says : ' f am satisfied; comment is unueccsdary.' The secretary of Sydney Labor Council is, of course, also satisfied . The gas workers them selves are furious; they reckon they've, been let down with a. blimp. Meanwhile, tho Gas Co.'s directorsjiiave eulogised Beeby andCar inichael for their efforts to smash the strike. The Daily Teleympk compliinei.ts Watson, admits it was mistaken when it feared he might be biased in favor of the workers, and writes up his verdict a.s satisfactory. \\\ the meantime, Kerr carries the brand of shame for life; and the gas workers may rellcct on the simplicity with which, they surrendered an inv...
Capitalism and Consumption. Socialism the Remedy. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 4 February 1911
Capitalism and Consumption. Socialism the Remedy. BY THE SLAVE. The excellent paper on Tuberculosis read at the recent Science Congress by Sir Philip Sidney Jones presents some points of considerable interest to the student of capitalist society. The writer would like to emphasise the fact, however, that he has grave doubts concerning the originality of the worthy knight's effort, owing to the remarkable resemblance it bears to the treatise on the etiology of Tuberculosis in Osier's ' Practice of Medicine.' So striking, indeed, is the similarity that owing to the news paper reports of the lecture being rather abbreviated no injustice will be done to Sir Philip if we use Osier as a reference instead of the Sydney Morning Herald. : Irving Fisher, in 1908, estimated that the annual death-rate from Tuberculosis in the United States of America was 164 in 100,000 living, and that of those now alive 5,000,000 will die of the disease. Osier states: ' Tuberculosis is the most universal scour...

Development of Patriotism. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 4 February 1911
Development of Patriotism. BY J. BLUMENTHAL. Every nation when unhampered by outside interference enters into a cer tain cycle of progress. The periods of progress would in a natural way start with the amalgamation of tribes, the development of these tribes into petty principalities, to be followed by a division into pro vinces under a temporal or spiritual head, to be replaced by the federal form of government with its more or less sovereign States, and then the national cycle culminating to the unified form of government. These steps of governmental advancement have naturally their corresponding idees of what is known as the nation al spirit. Their full national develop ment expended, and their internal markets glutted, they extend by force or otherwise their sovereignty over weaker nations. This growth of empiie, as it is called, forms the spirit of imperialism —the highest development of the national principle that we know of to day. From economic causes, the ruling and governin...

Freedom's Martyrs. Kotoku. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 4 February 1911
Freedom's Martyrs. W ' ? '- — Kotoku. nv w.r.w. A storm swept over old Japan, And in its fury tore, From where it grew, a stately Palm, That leaves of triumph bore. And underneath the Southern Cross Ihe golden wattles sighed, When Austral breezes whispered how The stately Palm had died. Japan follows the example of Russia, America, England, Germany, France, and all other capitalist class-ruled countries by murdering the men and women whose pro paganda makes for human freedom. On Tuesday of last week Dr. Denjiro Kotoku, his wife, and ten other Socialists were exe cute:! by order of the Japanese Government after a farcical trial organised not altogether differently from the Wade-arranged 'trials' of the Broken Hill and Newcastle unionists. Needless to say, the world of Socialism rises in denunciation of the murders. Austin Lewis, speaking at Los Angeles, Cal., U.S.A., recently, said: '' These men and women represent the rising proletarian class of Japan. If it were in India it would b...

Josiab Thomas skilfully side-stenped the the postal workers on Anniversary Day. 10. Cross (secretary of tho Letter-carriers' Association), speaking on Jan. 2(i, .said the ' postal workers had regulations governing hours and conditions of labor, but they were so much waste-paper. Regulations concerning the health ol olhcers were never carried out. They had in this Stale letter carriers and mailboys whose hours of labor were such that arbitration Judges would not tolerate in any outside employment. Let ter carriers in some instances started their duties til o' a.m., and finished at midnight. Ten hours a day constituted a broken shift, but the department had extended it to 1 I hours. Ft was not in accordance with equity and justice. These men, owing to the late ness of the hour at which they ceased work, were rarely, in some instances, able to see their children from one week to another, ?while thev were often put to much expense and inconvenience by having to live at con siderable dis...

Do You Hear — You Liars ? I5V II. I,. I)KNKol(I). Twem'B Japanese Socialists and Anarchists executed for conspiring to the kill the em peror of Japan, proclaims' the daily press. Strangled by the hangman's rope! This in thu twentieth century — supposed to he the acme of all past centuries. And what for? Conspiring to kill,' states the daily press. But it is a lie — a class lie that we Social ists hurl back into the teeth of its utterurs. These martyrs did not essay to kill; their work was of the noblest — a work that will live in working class history, a work that made for the Social Revolution. Do you hear — you liars, who prostitute the truth in the interest of the class that does the killing? Their life's work was of the noblest that could command the en ergies of men whose blood leaps and whose hearts throb for Human 'Freedom. Their work was in the'.. interest of the down-trodden world's working class, the only class that is necessary to carry on civi lisation—the class that you...

The Passing Show. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 4 February 1911
| The Passing Show, j COXDUCTKI) ISY OTirs. Tub spirit of revolt against conscription is already finding some expression. A jingo meeting at North Sydney, at which the Chief Justice and Edwards, M.H.R., and Cocks, M.L.A., endeavored to orate, was practically spoilt by a large number of young' men wno will nave to train under conscription. Cocks was not allowed to speak, but he got a chance to threaten the interrupters with what conscrtption would give them in the way of discipline. A chap named Taylor and Lieut. Dakin also tried to speak some, but without success. When the audience roared its resentment at the conscription details as presented by himself , the Dakin man got very wild, and shouted angrily: 'Perhaps it's na well that you have your fling; YOU'LL GET VERY LITTLE OF IT LATER ON ! ' ' Which wsw a somewhat swift, way of intimating that the victims of conscription will be ground under the iron heel after June. The audi ence unanimously said: '(in hon!'' and the meeting coll...

The Science Congress. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 4 February 1911
The Science Congress. DY W.R.'W. Ox January 9, the Science Congress com menced its sittings at the Sydney Univer sity. Notwithstanding the fact that for weeks before the event the congress had been advertised by various notices in the press, the average reader did not regard it as of much importance. Sydney's men or weaitn were not, present, at the opening in any imposing number, probably being concerned with affairs more directly connected with finance and money making. From their standpoint, men of science and invention are all very well in their place, which is to find out something which will cheapen the cost of production by superseding laborers with machines, and then selling it to them to be used for their especial benefit and against the rest of the community. Beyond this, they arc of no special benefit or interest, and the profit makers don't need to attend Science Con gresses to secure the results of.scientists' or inventors' labors, for they are the only ones who may buy ...

South Australian Items. Lksi.ik Hoi'K (a strong supporter of the Labor Party), Tom Johnson, J. J. O'Reilly, J. Parker, W. J. Travis, and a number of others who were prominent at Port Pirie during Harry Clarke's residence there, have written to the Adelaide daily papers, in dignai tly repudiating the mean and coward ly lie of A. G ? 'Roberts, M.H.R., that Clarke scabbed at Port Pirie. An honeft man would have apologised long ago, but Roberts, while making no attempt whatever to prove his, 'statement, unscrupulously repeats it, and feebly says that ' O'Toolc told me so.'

CLEAR THE WAY. The crest and crowning of all good, Life's final star, is brotherhood; ./?' For it will bring again to earth Her Jong-lost poesies and mirth; Will send her new light on every face, A kinclv Dower uuon the race. And till it comes we men are slaves, And travel downward to the dust of graves. Come, clear the way, then clear the way; Blind creeds and kings have had their day; Break the dead branches from the path, Our hope is in the aftermath — Our hope is in the working men, Star-led to build the world again. To this event the ages ran ; Make way for brotherhood — make way for man. — E. Makkham.

Socialist Fables. The Bees and the White Ants. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 4 February 1911
0 Socialist Fables. 0 The Bees and the White Ants. r,Y w.is.w. A swaum of bees once made a nest in the hollow branch of a tree, and commenced industrially to lay in a stock of honey for the winter and their young brood. They were very successful in their efforts, and were bumming merrily at their work, when they were suddenly shocked to find that some white ants had also taken up their residence in the tree, and were eating their way from near the roots up towards whore the bees had their nest. As the ants grew in number, and ate more of the tree, the latter commenced to wilt and wither in an alarming way, and at last the bees could see that if the ants continued their depredations the tree must fall, and thus ruin the home of both the ants and the bees. The bees interviewed the ants, and pointed out the danger of continuing their present evil courses, and said: 'You are eating the life out of the tree, and are thus not only destroying it, but you are destroy ing our home and your o...
A Barrier Doctor and Other Things. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 4 February 1911
A Barrier Doctor and Other Things. BY A REVOLUTIONARY. The tramway employees threatened to strike on Monday of this week. About five weeks ago the secretary of the Tramway Union w rote officially to the manager of the Silverton Tramway and submitted schedule of wages and hours with demand for increase of one shilling and shorter hours. To the Employees' disgrace, they have been working over 48-hours a week, so they asked for a 48-hours' week and time and a quar ter for overtime. The manager ab solutely ignored their claims, and didn 't even have the courtesy to re ply, thus refusing recognition of a union that could, if it understood its own power, paralyse Broken Hill withm.twenty-four hours by suddenly ceasing work. But these tramway wage-slaves thought it would be wrong to cease work without giving notice to the'r masters. Well, no tice was given to the effect that if their demands were nc t acceded to, they would cease work at twelve o'clock on Monday night. At the meeting on Mo...
