Labor and The I. W. W. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 5 February 1916

Labor and The I . W . W . (By F.H.) A real Labor Movement can aim at nothing less than Emancipation, and the securing to Labor of Labor's full product. The historical facts of social evo lution and of present-day industrial and social life tell us that whoever has economic power — whoever con trols Industry — controls the distribu tion o£ the product of industry, and therefore dictates the conditions of life for the great bulk of the people, The organised light of the Working Class must therefore be carried right into the industries. There we are away from the side-tracks, illusions, and false issues of politics, and are face to face with concrete issues and definite possibilities of rapid advance ment. Our struggle there must be for an even greater degree of industrial con trol, which means an ever-increasing share of the product. The I.W.W. is the only organisation which recognises these truths, and lays down a definite revolutionary programme in accord with them. Its Preamble pro...

Asitticklethmyfancy. TABLET 4. (By Ajax). It may interest (hose who believe in the gospel of 'Work' to know that workers are required to clear land and prepare homes for returned soldiers. The press suggests that people spend their week ends thuswise. Apparent ly, there is no pay or travelling al lowance, but motors will meet trams to lake the in— t— , J mean, patriots to work.

Labor Betrayed by It's Judas God. A. MACK. It is not conceivable thai the world can ever witness anything meaner o; more disgusting than the man who Litres a.s tLe frioud and ?champion ol the down-trodden, aud yet who takes advantage of' the confidence placed in him by his ignoramly helpless vic tjn-tf, and deliberately fastens him self as ti parasite upon their organi sations and sucks therefrom a life of luxury aud ease for himself, while itu.'v fester in the ubuse-s lie pretend ed he was out to destroy.

SPEAKERS', CLASS. The Speakers' Class has been re started at the Sydney Local. There is a pressing need for an everin creasing supply of able propagandists — fellows who can expound and ex plain the philosophy and methods of the I.W.W. and make more converts, especially on the job. There are plenty who have a fair understand ing of Industrial Unionism, but fail to make its principles clear to their mates owing to lack of practice in speaking and putting their case lo gically and concisely. The speakers' class aims at starting fresh ones on the road to effective speaking. It is held every Saturday at 7.15 p.m., at 230 Castlereagh-street. Don't forget that all Efficiency and Speeding-up schemes tiro put forward in the interests of the boss. You and he have nothing in common.

Chaos. BOULDER, W.A. Tbeir agreement having expired, somewhere in the vicinity of live or six hundred men ceased wood-cutting for the companies that have been sup plying the belt known as the Golden Mile, with fuel. They have not re sumed operations since the Christmas holidays, and are at the present time sweltering in iheir 'six by eights,' waiting for the secretary of the uuion with the magician's wand, to lead Ciaft Unions, here aud elsewhere, re main in a violent state of inactivity. Tbe conditions are deplorable. One of ibe chief shareholders was, up till recently, a politician, and had lucra tive railway contracts in the early bc-ciin days of this State, now has laige interests in the agricultural li'Ki. and is known for his kerosene Ismguage. Those that have been engaged in wood-cutting for any length of time, know the numerous difficulties that the toiler is up against.

A Game of Bluff, Up To Date. "GOOD BUSINESS." [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 5 February 1916

A Game of Bluff, Up To Date. 'GOOD BUSINESS.' It is safe to say that there is no country in any pan of the world ibat the war has commercially af fected less than Australia.

There ppv ta inlv i^ ili*.* vnTit inn in n,M-i-n ;?--. lines of merchandise, but generally sneaking, it would be no exaggera ? ion to assert that business is good. In particular lines trade is even better than it was before the war. As an instance of that fact we quote ihe words of Mr. James Chalmers, managing director of Farmer and Co., Ltd. That gentleman says: — 'Last year has been the most suc cessful one the firm has ever had.' The above is an extract from the 'Australian Traders' Weekly' of last issue, the weekly organ of the Aus tralian Traders' Association, which is ?published, by the way, at one shilling ; n copy— presumably to ...

We are invited to heave a few bricks after him, but why should we trouble? Billy Hughes has done us a good turn. Never before in the history of the I.W.W. has the Prime Minister of an important country devoted three con secutive public bpeecnes to advertis ing the I.W.W.: never before has such striking evidence been put be fore the workers {as by these .speeches of Billy Hughes) of the fear in the hearts of the capitalists of the I.W.W.. its policy and tactics; never before has the I.W.W. been gratified with such signal proof that £he work ers are at last beginning to appreci ate at their true respective worths, the I.W.W. man and the politician — the 'parasite' who relieves them of darkness and despair, and the politi cal saviour who cheats them of light and liberty in order to earn from his capitalist masters, values (in the form of large salary,...
