The Aim of the Modern Socialist. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 21 June 1895

The Aim of the Modern Socialist. The aim of the Socialist Party is not the subdivision of property, whether capital or land, but the control of it by the representa tives of the community. The aim of the modern socialist movement is not to enable this or that comparatively free person to lead an ideal life, but to loosen the fetters of the millions who toil in our factories and mines, and who cannot possibly be moved to Freeland or Utopia. For the last two generations we have had social prophets, who, seeing the impossibility of at once con verting the whole country, founded here and there small companies of the faithful, who immediately endeavoured to put into prac tice whatever complete ideal they professed. The gradual adoption of this ideal by the whole people was expected from the steady expansion of these isolated communities. But in no single case has this expectation been fulfilled. Most of these isolated colonies outside the world have failed. Some few, under »nore favourab...

Pity the Poor Capitalist. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 21 June 1895

Pity the Poor Capitalist. Mr. Hiram S. Maxim, of the Maxim Nordenfelt Gun Company, has been giving his views of British labor and capital. According to him the English capitalist finds that his money brings him better returns in giving employment to foreign workmen than to his own countrymen. In plain English the British workman will not work cheap enough to please Mr. Maxim. He says that a' woman in France for 6d. an hour runs six machines where the English mechanic for Sid. or Is. an hour only runs one. Mr. Maxim tells some fancy stories of how strikes are caused and why. Anyone acquainted with the workings of that aristo cratic body, the Amalgamated Society of Engineers, will know how likely that body is to be induced to strike " in order to give notoriety to a few professional agitators." Really what Mr. Maxim is anxious to insist upon is that Englishmen must do more work for less money. Otherwise how can the English capitalist compete with the foreigner 1 But the foreign workma...

Labor Under Socialism. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 21 June 1895

Labor Under Socialism. The French Revolution, after giving the coup de grace to the feudal system, resolved itself into a political truraph for the com mercial class, placing the bourgeoisie at the head of the State. The result proved for the workers merely a change of masters. The evil principle of exploitation of labor was left untouched. The coming Revolu tion will find its expression in an economic and a social change, - and will abolish the capitalist system and all its forms of ex ploitation. Thus the coming change will be the most momentous in the world's history, for its triumph means the economic emanci pation of the worker, and, we may add, also of the capitalist, who is but a creature of the products he produces. The worker will be freed from the anxiety of seeking subsistence for himself and his family, and will commence to educate and train his mental and artistic faculties for that new life which is destined to place bim on a higher and nobler plane of existence. The e...

The United Labor Party [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 21 June 1895

The United Labor Party The dailies are frequently pretty well filled up M-ith information respecting the doings of the United Labor Party, a good deal of which, especially that appearing in the Register, is pure guesswork. The latter journal published on Saturday last a number of details in connection with the method which will be adopted in selecting candi dates for next election, all of which are purely conjectural, though they are based on the system adopted prior to last general election. All that has been done by the Central Committee of the United Labor Party up to date has been to decide that a general plebiscite of the whole of the mem bers of the various organisations connected with the Party is to be takeu with a view to selecting candidates, who shall be ready to contest any districts 011 behalf of labor if requested by the Party to do so, either at the geueral elections of 1896 or at any vacancy whi h may arise. As a preliminary to the taking of a ballot the Secretary ha...

An Object Lesson. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 21 June 1895

An Object Lesson. "Suum Cuique," in the Bunyip, contri butes the following :—" In a certain district in South Australia an industrious farmer settled and rented some land which belonged to an absentee owner. He worked hard— the farmer, not the owner—and improved the property, and as a consequence at the end of the term his rent was raised by the local agent. Still he did not care to break up his home and go elsewhere, so he sub mitted. He still worked hard, and further improved the place, while his return was just a bare living. At the end of the second term the rent was again elevated, and the tenant for the same reason as before sub mitted to it. But the rent is now more than he can pay and get a living, and he has to draw upon a small legacy which was left hiin. One would think this individual had a thorough detestation of landlordism, and would be anxious to do all l^e co.uld to deal with its evilsj but strange to say he was a member of the same branch of the National Defence Le...

POLITICAL PILLS. Dispensed by the Premieb. The following extracts are from the speech j of the Premier in reply to Sir John Downer | qn Tuesday - j " Sir John Downer seems a curious com bination of a Parliamentary Achilles skulk iug and sulking in the Opposition teqt, and a political Mica\yber waiting for something to turn up on which he could possibly hang a no-confidence motion." " The Government visited Mr. Handy side's district, and they had the advantage of seeing that gentleman conducting himself at the village settlements in a way that gave them entire satisfaction. They had the pleasure of hearing Mr. Handyside at the village settlements singing " The Wearing of the Green," nqt once, but half a dqzen times, for the delectation of settlers to whom be was entirely hostile, and if member^ would take it fr®m him it was about five notes out. The performance was as ludic rous as if Prince Bismark had danced a fandango before a hostile Reichstag." " Members naturally expected when ...

HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 21 June 1895

House of Assembly. On Tuesday Mr. Hourigan asked if the attention of the Attorney-General had been directed to the practice amongst Civil ser* vants, especially in the Railway department, of attributing the placing of men on short time t° the action of the labor members. The Attorney ^General (Hon. C. C. Kingston) said his attention had not been called to the matter, and if it were he would take no notice of it. The Treasurer, in reply to Mr. Giles, said he had noticed the remarks made on the letting of the steamlaunch Lady Diana by Mr. Archibald on Thursday last, and he had called for a report from the Eugineer-iu Chief. That report stated that efforts had been repeatedly made since 1S90 by adver tisement and otherwise to sell or lease the Lady Diana and another launch. The Minister of Education, in reply to Mr. Batchelor, said he found that in refusing leave to a pro. and tern, officer, the remark had been made that under the Civil Service Amendment Act, 1894, the officer was not ...

A Wage-worker's Soliloquy, [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 21 June 1895

A Wage-worker's Soliloquy, The following admirable soliloquy ap peared in an American exchange :— " I am a printer out of work. It is the machine. I am a cigartnaker out of employment. It is the machiue. I am a carpenter. Weary, weary and hopeless I look for employment. It is the machine. I am a machine woodworker. Like the Wandering Jew, I go on for ever looking for an opportunity to work that I may find rest. It is the machine. I am a bookkeeper. From comfort in a home surrounded by my family and friends, I have gone out into the great highways, a beggar, for the right to continue to live in the way a human being should exist. It is the machine. Yes, it is the machine. The machine in the hands of the other man. And the cry of the unemployed goe& up, wailing and moaning, and the answering echo is ever the same—it is the machine, the machine of production and distribution in the hands of the few, aud the few permit operation of the machine only when it works the life out of ...

Gleanings. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 21 June 1895

Gleanings. Commen sense is not located in one's purse or pocket. Society does not owe every man a living, bat it owes every man an opportunity to earn a living. In Melbourne a woman gets 2id. for making a shirt, while a Chinaman gets 5d. for washing it. The working-man will be the " uuder dog " as long as he keeps voting the upper dog the offices. California is reported to be flooded with Japanese labor; no less than 10,000 Japanese having been employed on the farms and vineyards of that State last year. The breatli of slander may hurt a man's reputation, but can never affect his character. If that be upright and honorable no one can stain its purity or lesson the happiness which flows from self-respect. Nations do not live by what they export, but by what they consume. The local market is most permanent, profitable, and safe, and the local consumption depends upon the wage-earning power of every member of the community. Twenty-six thousand persons committed suicide in France during...

THE UNITED LABOR PARTY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 21 June 1895

THE UNITED LABOR PARTY. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—Three years ago we (the United Labor Party) were laying our plan of attack on the class legislation of the past, and we were very successful in returning eight good men to the House of Assembly, and one to the Legislative Council. We were then a United Labor Party. Last year we lost one seat in the Council and one in the Assembly through not being united. Now, as we are about to enter upon another campaign, let us as true men and women attend to our duty and remember the great cause for which we are fighting, namely humanity. This is the battle cry that has come right down through the centuries, but the Army of King Gold, led by that great tyrant class privi lege has often defeated us in the past. Every detestable means that could be devised has been used, and we may expect 110 better treatment how than in the past. I saw in the Worker an article that said:—"The capitalistic combination of oppression had been strengthened in Australia, a br...

We were there just in time to hear the chairman's address, and I was somewhat astonished that a man who is President of that political organisation known as the National Defence league was presiding for them. There was a very large attendance. I am sure they will feel flattered when 1^ say Itfiat they attracted about seven times as large an audience as the representative of the League attracts. There were a few of the League present, but not one of them had the courage to step on to the platform to oppose except the Secre tary of the Corcondo Branch (poor Mr. Thos. Gregory).
