A CRY IN THE NIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 25 February 1911
A CRY IN THE NIGHT. Wail, wail, wail, For the Meeting world goes down ; Into the song of thu poet pule Mixes the laugh of the clown. Grim, grim, grim, Is the road we goto the dead; Yet we must on, for a something dim Pushes the soul ahead. Where, where, where, Through the dust and shadow of things Will the Meeting Fates with their wild manes bear These tribes of slaves and kings? — Edwin Makkiiam.

Belgium. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 25 February 1911
Belgium. Several thousand miners are on strike in the neighborhood of Leige, in consequence of the new regulations on coal mines having been put into force. Thes! new arrange ments were elabora;ed in consequence of the new law 'regulating- -labor in the mines. The employers introduced some clauses which were injurious to the interests of the miners, without consulting those who were principally affected. . The miners protested; they several times asked the coal owners to co-operate with them in examining these regulations before they came into force. Their request was refused, and the employer* replied through the Gover.ior of the Pro vince of Liege that the regulations were not to be modified. The Miners' Federation of the Liege district decided, in view of the em ployers' attitude, that the strike should be supported by all unions of the Federation. The strikers of Montegnac, Grace and Bur teur came to Seurin, .where a demonstration was held. A melee between police and strikers to...

Germany. Prince Henry, of Prussia, in a speech called upon the soldiers to be readj' to deal with an internal foe that menaced the monarchy and the fatherland. He meant the Socialists. In the Reichstag, Ledebour demanded that Prince Henry should be censured for his speech, but the Chancellor declared that the Prince had said nothing that ought not to be said. During the naval debate in' the Reichstag the Socialists accused the Krupp family of making £2,840,000 clear profit in the last three yours by squeezing the district like a lemon.

Socialist Fables. The Highwaymen. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 4 March 1911
0 Socialist Fables. HD The Highwaymen. »Y W.U.W. A band of highwaymen once practised their profession near a great city. They were very successful for a few years, and amassed considerable booty. They had their points of honor, one of which was that they would never rob a poor man; so they attacked and robbed only the rich men who travelled their way. After a time the rich travellers raised a great outcry against the robbers, and the Government sent armed men to protect the travellers. The rich men and the police gave the robbers a very bad time, capturing some, shooting others and generally making the business unprofitable. The robbers held a meeting to discuss the position, and the Chairman of Directors, in submitting the annual report and balance sheet, concluded by saying that the ordin ary form of robbery of the rich had become very dangerous and unprofitable, and it had become necessary to devise some other way of carrying on the affairs of the Company. Various schemes were pr...
Open Column. The Blind Men. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 4 March 1911
ei Open Column. 1=1 ! The Blind Men. BY .1. H. COUBETT. Fkom what several people have told me, while trying to sell matches in front of 'Mark Foys,1' the public seems to have im bibed the idea that the unfortunate blind men on Sydney streets can not only claim till; iiivitiju jjuiioiwh, i/ut tfj guing tu LUC William-street 'Industrial Institution' earn good wages ' ' as well . In the Daily Tckyraph of 28th ultimo, Mr. H. Hedger, of that Institution, is re ported as having said: ' The blind workers are receiving good wages, and are living in comfort and happiness.' As the amount of good wages is not men tioned, such a statement in the public press is doubtless made to impress .the public with the idea that the blind employees of William-street are rendered hilariously happy by the considerable amount of com fort the 'good wages' the Manhedger says they are in receipt of enables thorn to pro cure. A blind ex-worker of that institution, who left it because he could not earn enough to s...
Women and Socialism. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 4 March 1911
Women and Socialism. ? ▲ ? BY SYDNEY PARTUIGK. The other day, at the Socialist Club rooms, Mrs. Monteriore said: ' Make a woman a Socialist, and you make a suffragist.' And I say: ' Make a woman a feminist, and you make a Socialist.' Wake a woman to true sex-dignity, that is to respect and love her own sex, and to de sire to see it treated with justice, and you indubitably wake the Socialist in her. She msy not know it; she may have only the haziest idea as to what the word Socialist implies. But if she has an an ounce of logic in. her composition she will reason her way into Socialism. Her main idea will first be — equality for the sexes. And then you have her. For all that remains to be done is to show her that Socialism is the only system which will remember that she is a human being as well as a woman, which promises her sex equal ity, and which, should it attempt to repudi ate its promise, would fall to the ground and no longer constitute Socialism. Any woman who has inquired i...
A LEAF FROM THE DEVIL'S JEST-BOOK. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 4 March 1911
A LEAf fROM THE DEVIL'S JEST BOOK. Beside the sewing-table, chuiiicd and bent, They stitch for the lmly, tyrannous and proud — For her a wedding-gown, for them a shroud; They stitch and Htitch, bir never mind the rent Torn in life's golden curtain*. Glad Youth went, And left I em alone with Time: and now if bowed With burdens they should sob and cry aloud, Wondering, the filled would look from their con tent. And so this glimmering life at last recedes In unknown, endless depths beyond recall; And what's the worth of all our ancient creeds, If here at t!;e end of ages this is all— A white face floating in the whirling ball, A dead face plashing in the river reeds? — Edwin Maiikiiam.

Polishing Up. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 4 March 1911
Polishing Up. ? v ? BY W.R.W. 8.M. Herald recently announced that 'Mrs. McGowen, wife of the Pre-_ mier, had gone to Moss Vale, where she will be the guest of his Excel lency and Lady Chelmsford for a few days.' This will probably make some of the Liberal women grind their teeth in secret, but they shouldn't be too jealous of the '' as cent' of the poor boilermaker's wife, for the Governor and his lady are putting in a bit of fine work iii taking the raw edge off the Pre mier's 'labor' principles. Mr. and Mrs. McGowen will become more and more liberalised, and the Gov ernor's good work will be apparent even to the most jealous dames of the Liberal Party. Besides Mrs. Mac. couldn't be expected to go with her husband into English ' ' sassiety ' ' without a little coaching, and her visit to Moss Vale will be of great educational value in developing the art of wearing the scanty clothing of the court ladies. There is a lotto learn before Premier Jim and his missus can bow and walk backw...
