Among other donations the Exe cutive have to. acknowledge the snn of £5 from one of our most sincere friends and workers, as a Xmu gift. The holidays prevented thii acknowledgment earlier, though our friend knows how fully we ap preciate his kindness.

LOOKING FORWARD. [Newspaper Article] — People — 11 January 1902
LOOKING FORWARD. Boldly predicting Freedom's sway, Th e Future's page 1 scan with glee. — Beeanobr. No party in Australia can face the future with such confidence as the party of Socialism, for to us the Future belongs. No other party has, during the past 12 months, made such advances as we haue made ; no other party has spread its principles to the ex tent that we have done ; and no other party has inspired the same amount of confidence. That this is so is duo to the fact that we are a fighting party — a party that does not engage in poli tical or industrial warfare for tbe purpose of securing positions of ease and remunerative jobs for indi viduals. but a nart.v with a hioli ideal which is never lost sight of by its membership. . * ? ? As we have fongbt in the past, so we shall fight in the future, fortified and strengthened by the experience gained with each succeeding ad vance. And if our . enemies-^th^ o^lfenst+olass and tBeir^fifiUifnl' ? henchmen, the Fakir element in both po...

Ready for an Upheaval. Should the workers of the world make up their mind to throw off the inoubus of those drones called 'kings' and ' emperors,' those per sons have taken precautions to avoid pauperdom or the horrible ne cessity of having to ' work ' for a livine, as the following clipping fivwin an AmamnftTi aTA^flnfrp aVlrrara * &» WUA ~T ~ ? 1 ?- ? 1 W^W..t-.UC^ W UUV If 0 . A hundred odd years ago our gieat and good friend King George levied a war against this country that he might subdue the colonists and levy upon them a tax for his own benefit and that of his court. He was unsuccessful, as history tells us. But the gentleman and bis successors were not content, and so they set about to accomplish by another process what they had failed to accomplish by force. They col lected much revenue from their al ready conquered subjects — many of whom had made much money hy ' trading ' with the colonists — and with this fund the kings of England invested in American enterprise...

BOUND WITH CHAINS. [Newspaper Article] — People — 18 January 1902
SOUND WITH CHAINS. w ? Caritle was right. The class to be trembled at is the stupid section of the working class that will not see. 'Tis (hat section that Labor has now to thank for the galling chains (in the form of theArbitration Act) toac Dina its industrial body. And Labor, now that the chains have been rivettod, is just beginning to awaken to the truth of the situation. The So cialists' -protests against the first principle embodied in the measure — that of legal recognition of the capitalists' right to their Social Stealings - were disregarded by the great bulk of the Trades Unionists and scouted by the leaders of Fakirdom, who were also prepared to — and did — accept without ques tion the Constitution of the Court, which provided for two capitalist and one Labor representatives. Ac cording to them no judge of the Supreme Court conld ever be biased. The Bill became law solely because Mr. Wise used the bogey of So cialism to scare the Landlords in the £ ossu Chamber ; he assure...
SOCIALISTS RESIGN FROM SYDNEY LABOR COUNCIL. REFUSE TO SIT WITH SMOODGERS FOR THE CAPITALIST BOSSES. [Newspaper Article] — People — 18 January 1902
SOCIALISTS RESIGN 1 PROM SYDNEY LABOR COUNCIL. REFUSE TO SIT WITH SMOODGERS FOR THE CAPITALIST BOSSES. Ami the Tailoresaes had re signed from the Council, Mr. J. 0. | Moroney arose and formally an- i nonnoed his resignation. Be also had to obtain permission to speak. In. justice to himself and the Union ne represented, ne saia, a statement was necessary from him as to why he resigned from the ' Council. Kver since he could be a unionist he had been connected with the Conncils at the Trade Ball, and had loyally supported trades unionism on every occasion. He had been accused of being an emissary of the Socialist movement on that Council, and it had been said that he had acted in that capacity there. Now, that was not true, as all Socialists were not at all enthusiastic about his connection with the Council. It was said he had had more resolutions carried there than any other delegate. If that was so, they invariably arose ont of the business, and they were carried because delegates b...
Tailoresses' Union. [Newspaper Article] — People — 18 January 1902
Tailoresses' Union. ? m - ? On Tuesday evening last, the above nnion held a mass meeting at Marx Hall, &t whinh reports were submitted concerning reductions in log prices. It was unanimously re solved to insist on log prices being upheld, and that members should refuse to accept reductions. Depu tations to several employers were arranged. On Tuesday mprning, Mesdames Eenna, Upton, and Robinson and the president of the Union waited on Messrs. A. H. Wright and Co., and placed the union's deoision be fore the principles, The reply given by the firm was most unsatisfactory, and during the half-hour allowed for luno'i Mr. Holland addressed the girls out side the faotory, and advised them to refuse to- accept les* than log prices. Every girl was prepared to cea-e work if necessary. On Wednesdaj morning the girls were locked out at this fac tory, and one woman was told not to come there again for work as she was suspected of having made complaints concerning the attempted reduction...
How the B.L.P. Lies. [Newspaper Article] — People — 18 January 1902
How the B.L.P. Lies. Thi following (from Barrier 'Truth')iBa fair sample of the meanness of the B.L.P., and its un scrupulous press : Sydney tailoresees are now trying to disintegrate the Labor Council, nuiwu 19 as aw»m-u aa lu la liUgtaWM. Ul. Tfce tailoressea were badly advised in the recent difficulty by Holland and others. The Council saw things in their real light and gave tdvice, which though it was not palatable, was cer tainiy wiser and more practicable. It was entirely owing to the action of timately settled on terms which were fairly satisfactory. The Socialist Laague, too, is anxious to oust the Executive of the Council. This is merely an array of some Socialist* (not of Socialism, by any means) against common sense. The Holland clique Beam to be indiscreet, tactless, rash, and irreconcilable. Sydney tailoresses have never en deavored to disintegrate the Labor Conncil. ?» The bad advice tendered to the tailoresses was to the effect that they should not c mcede freedom of ...
