O'Sullivan Saves the Country. [Newspaper Article] — People — 11 January 1902
O'Sallivan Saves the Country. Tucker Hill is in full swing. Strong, able-bodied men are wheel ing Band, on the old-fashioned principle — a sheer waste of public money. They are supposed to be making a 'roadway to extend New land-street, Waverley. We are strong believers in the day-labor system, but sooner or later Tucker Hill (whioh costs five times more than it could he done for by contract) and some other Government day labor jobs, must seriously endanger the principle. No country can long stand paying twioo and three times wbat a job is worth in the open competitive market. Under So cialism men will get wbat tbey pro duce or its value. If the men on some of the Government day-labor jobs (Tucker Hill included) got what they produced, or its .'value, they would get but little. The politically appointed loafer must be shifted, if the day-labor Bystem is to be a success. This was cabled from London last week : Your Commonwealth is a sounding brass tinkling cym bal,' says Dr. Parker t...
PEPPER AND SALT. [Newspaper Article] — People — 11 January 1902
PEPPER UNO SALT. We would ask the Minister for Pnblio Works why it is necessary before a man can get employment on a work being carried out by day labor, to call at some public depart ment and sign a book. To sim plify matters would it not be ad visable to give the foreman on the works power to engage men and discharge them on tne same lines as the individual contractor does, holdingthe foremen responsible for the success of the system P No self-respecting foreman likes the present system, nnder which they are told by politically appointed work men that they cannot discharge them. We wonld suggest to the foremen On Government day-labor works that they refuse to allow the politician (' labor ' or otherwise/to foist men on to tbe works they are in charge of.

',They ehoiiId; Pensions Act is only the will of majority of the people.- enforoeil through the ballot box. - An Act of Parliament is orystallised will, or. desire, or demand, or opinion.

COWARDLY BRUTALITY. SHOCKING OUTRAGES ON WOMEN. REVELATIONS OF A COURT-MARTIAL. [Newspaper Article] — People — 11 January 1902
COWARDLY BSD' TflLLITY. SHOCKING OUTRAGES ON WOMEN'. REVELATIONS OF A COURT MAftTlAL. (From the ' Weekly Freeman ' Duhlin.) England's .infamous methods in attempting to crush out of exis tence the brave little Republics of South Africa are well understood in this country, where the re membranoe of somewhat similar atrocities in 1798 has not by any means faded from the national consciousness. We give our readers this week particulars of a court-martial trial held at Pre toria in April laBt, which are a fair sample of tbe methods whioh are strengthening the resistance of the Beers. The full official report of the proceeding thereat has been placed in our hands, and there is absolutely no question of its en tire accuracy. It is a most damn ing indiotment — this cold unim passioned record of naked facts, told under solemn oath by the simple-minded wives of Boer farmers ; and in once sense it is to be regretted that the interests of public morality will not permit of the evidence of thes...

To Trades Unionists. [Newspaper Article] — People — 11 January 1902
To Trades Unionists. We would suggest to the Trades Unions that they devise some sort of examination into the fitness of the individuals who are canvassing for their votes as persons capable of adjudicating in a Court of Arbitra tion on their behalf. The men who have no knowledge of the economic position or tne worKing class, or the history of trade unionism (and I there are many such in high places in the union and labor ranks) are unworthy persons to place in such a position. The worker wants no subtle 'thimble-rigger ' as his re presentative, but a clear-headed, well-informed, capable, determined class-conscious man of his own class, who will not fear the frowns of tbe two reps, of the capitalist class when he cuts a swath wide and deep through their class deci sions. Don't, we say? elect any man who has lived on trades unionism, but get the man who has lived for trades-unionism. The class met on Sunday morn ing last, F. H. Drake in the chair. The consideration of ' Gronlund'a Co...

KERNELS. Trades-unionists who uphold the capitalists' War for Gold in South 'tfiS^gunk 'Sf'Chaniberlaih s'ttoBber Class are to be turned on the union ists now on strike at Lord Penrhyn'E slate quarries in Wales. Of working-class children born in London 50 per oent die before reaching the age of five years. Johannesburg 'Star' has resumed publication under the editorship of Mr. Moneypenny — one of the most unscrupulous tools of the Rhodes - Chamberlain gang. 'Twas Money penny who flsd in haste from Jo hannesburg when the war com menced. Johannesburg 'Witness' declared that he went disguised as a wet-nurse. Kipling has got 'em again. This time it's a shriek for conscription. The Boer fighting force never amounted to more than 30,000 Aotual British losses amount to more than three times that number. Sydney's employing class are so well satisfied that the capitalist Ar bitration Act is going to work out in their favor that an effort is to be made to drag the tailoreases before the court...

PHOTOGRAPHIC. Sam Smith. ''Labor' M.P., Justice of the Peace, and (self styled) ' Australian Plimsoll,' might be described as one of the .va- most cunning tricksters in AuBtra ban politics! He bas no knowledge of the economic position of the working-class, but possesses a boundless assurance, a tremendous conceit, a laughable capacity for - posturing, and a fathomless affecta tion of wisdom and power. Self JntereBt he places before everything else; and, not satisfied with his present exalted position as State M.L.A., he aspires to the dizzy ' eminence of the Capitalist Arbitra 1 toon Court as ' Labor ' Arbitrator, k At present he receives £300 a year ; I bnt the Job on which his eyes are r now fixed carries with it £750 a year. And the workers are asked j[ to leave their cause in his hands, the while be is paid to sit with his ? frood friends, the capitalists. Mr. Smith is one of the men who longht for Hordern against the yjtailoresses, and he used his influence Ho prevent the Seame...
Rev. Robjohns on the Wrong Track. [Newspaper Article] — People — 11 January 1902
Rev- Robjohns on tbe Wrong Track. Riv. Jjeonard Robjohns, M.A., late acting-warden of the Mansfield House Settlement, London : ' The great need to-day in their large cities was that some of their wealthy and cultured people — who had fled from the crowds, and gone to the more healthful and beautiful suburbs to live — should come back again and live in the city, and help their fellow men there to live true and honest lives. This was wbat Christ taught, and it was the only way of redeeming the world from destruction.' Not at all, sir. The need of to-day in this, as in all other conntries, is that the working class understand their economic position. Given that, redemption of the world is assured. The workers who already under stand their economic position are acting at the ballot box, and every week their numbers are increasing, and any attempt of a clergymen or ohnrch to stem that understanding by bringing back to the slums the men who uphold a system that created the slum, the crimi...

THE enPITHHSTS' BREVIARY. From ' The Religion of Capitalism,' by Paul Lapajujue. L THE NATURE OF THB GOD CAPITAL. 1. Hearken unto the words of Capital, thy God 2. I am the man-eating God ; I seat myself at table in the mills, factories, mines and yards, and feed upon working-men. I transform their substance into godly Capital. I am the Unsolvable Riddle. My substance is eternal, and yet it rests upon perishable flesh ; my strength is derived from human weakness. The inert force of Capital is the life force of the workingman. 3. I am the Immeasurable Spirit of the civilised world ; mjf body has innumerable forms and is) manifold. I live in and pervade everything that is bought and sold. 1 am ac tive in every article of merchandise; none has, besides me, any separate existence. 4.

Man sees, feelB, smells, and tastes my body, bat my spirit is finer than other, and is still, less comp...
