Sulphide Workers Sidetracked. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 25 February 1911
Sulphide Workers Sidetracked. ? ^ ? Day by day the workers are being provided with lessons that they must fling away the wages boards and arbitration courts of Capi talism. Recently the members of the Sul phide Workers' Union at Cockle Creek were forced to strike against certain tactics and pin -prickings by the Co. The union was making certain claims before a wages board, and, according to the men, the Co. employed a man named Mclntyre to go among them and procure names of those who would fight the Union on behalf of the Co. in Court. It was also alleged Mclntyre put on his list the names of unionists who had never authorised him to do so, and also that he used vile language in reference to the unionists generally. When the strike occurred, Mr. Beeby proceeded to pull the strings, but the sul phide men twice refused to give him an op portunity to work the strike-breaking trick. They also emphatically rejected the mana ger's suggestion that Mr. J. C. Watson should be called in as ar...

Pity the Poor Postal Workers [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 25 February 1911
Pity the Poor Postal Workers » v voianoit. It is the writer's intention in these articles to take the public of N.S.W. into his con fidence in order to comprehend the stirabout and discontent that is going on amongst all classes of workmen engaged in the postal services in the various States, more especial ly at the present time at the Sydney G.P.O. First of all be it understood the writer knows his book, as he is writing from within, and is thoroughly conversant with the facts as set forth . It only requires n, glance in the despatch and incoming mail room, also the general de livery box room, and parcels and letter de spatch sectionto see that the place is altogether too small for the growing business of such a large centre as Sydney. The sanitary con ditions for employees are inadequate for the number employed; then, also, in the pri vate box room, for early subscribers' boxes, the sorters are packed and jammed against each other in a way that would not be per mitted in a private...

The Wreckers at Lithgow. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 25 February 1911
The Wreckers at Lithgow. I?Y A IVKNACEMAN. A week or two back a number of miners working for the Hoskins' firm at Carcoar went on strike for a small increase in their wages — which were abnormally low. Later the furnacemen at Lithgow also struck. ' We are determined that in every case where the men strike in our business to call on the Law Office to prosecute them,' said one of the firm; and then he (who draws thou sands per annum) went on to say how ' ' we have gradually raised the pay of our men at the blast furnace from 7s to 7s 6d and 7s 9d. You will .see from this that as far as we are concerned the tony-desired Mecca of Ss per day of the labor people is within measureable distance of being attained, but this cannot be accom plished all at once.'

On Saturday last the furnacemen, fettlcrs, and moulders' laborers employed by the firms of Simpson and Sons and Metters and Co. ceased work, as cue firms ?'ainea ret used to pay the rates ruling in all the other factories in S.A. for similar work. When the secretary of the union waited on Mr. Simpson in reference to the wages, he was, informed that he (Simpson), refused to hear the secretary, but that ho would be willing to meet Mr. 11. P. Blundcll, M.P., as the men's representa tive — no doubt, remembering the able manner, in which Mr. R. P. Blundell 'settled' the previous strike at Simpson and Sons. At the request of the secretary of the union Mr. Blunddl wrote and informed Mr. ?Simpson, that although he was prepared to do all in his power to bring about a settlement, hu was not now the men's representative, tlvo secretary of the union filling that posi tion.

' My children,' said she, ' when f have pas ed away, you must ask your wealthy uneie,uapixai, ior assistance. .. ? In clue time the children went to parley with Capital.. As they gazed at his palace they were filled with awe; numberless ser vants busied themselves preparing for a great feast, and richly attired guests were arriving ..iiv flash cars.; They met Capital and briefly' stated their' case. ' 'I cannot help you,' he said; 'you cannot stop here. I want all I have got for myself. But, if you like, I will place you in one of my factories.' They agreed to this, and wore placed iiv a large woollen mill — one of the many factor ies controlled by Capital, who employed a vast horde of workers and grew fat on their misery.

Of course, the land and wealth of this country doesn't belong to the class to which nearly all the boys belong— the work ing class; and, of course, the foreign enemy is not half so dangerous as the eneinv within the gates. Our worst enemies' are already here, and are just now making the .loudest outcry against the foreign bogey. I don't say the foreign capitalist thieves are not dan . gerous; they are.
