Bernard Shaw Says: [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 18 March 1911
Bernard Shaw Says : Alcohol makes life bearable to millions of people who could not endure their existence if -.they were quite sober. All religious organisations exist by selling themselves to the rich. Whatever can blow men up can blow so ciety up. Tin1, history of the world is the history of those who had the courage to embrace this truth. The truth formulated by William Morris, that '' no.' mini is good .enough' to be an other man's master,' is true also, of na tions; You cannot 'cheapen women in the mar ket for industrial purposes without cheap ening them for other purposes as well. When we cease to do, we cease to live. Fine manners and fine words are very cheap. Every dream is a prophecy; every jest is an earnest in the womb of Time. A 'loyal' Irishman is an abhorrent phenomenon, because it is an unnatural one. When you vote, you only change the names of the cabinet. When you shoot, you pull down governments, inaugurate new epochs, abolish old orders and set up new. Pity! the...

The King Again libelled. By the Lord Mayor and the City Librarian. Tiik other day Edward Mylius was sent to jail for a year for alleging tlu.t the king had contracted a morganatic marriage with the daughter of Admiral Seymour, whom he discarded later for his present wife. The Sydney City Council, through its municipal-library, publishes the same state ment with a- cheerful disregard for the possi bility ot things; ' In a book called 'Alaska' (D. G-4 is how it is catalogued), printed in 11)09, and issued on Oct. 2-1, Nov. 1S, Dec. 8 of last year, and, Jar.. IS, Feb. 14, and Mar. S of fcliis year, to various - borrowers (and the issuing of it constitutes publication under the law), the author says, on page 14: ' It is said' that the woman who should have been Queen of England, lived near the city, of Vancouver a few years ago. Before the death of his elder brother, the present Prince of Wales passionately loved the young and beautiful daughter of Admiral Seymour. His infatuation was r...
Is It Right? [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 18 March 1911
Is It Right? IJY K..I.R. Thk total revenue of the Mount Morgan (Queensland) Company for the half-year ended Nov. oO, from all sources, amounted to £484,754 ; to meet depreciation in plant and machinery the sum of £24,706 was set aside, leaving a total of £460,048, out of which was paid £21(5,254 for wages. Thus more than half of the earnings of the work ers engaged b.v this company lias gone away in the form of rent, interest and profit. It can be safely said that some three thousand men are employed by this company at Mt.

International Transport Workers. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 18 March 1911
International Transport Workers. According to the Weekly Report of the International Transport Workers' Federa tion, the Danish ship-owners are doing their utmost to create trouble. In spite of three wage increases, many of the lower grade employees on the Italian railways only receive a daily wage ol two livre. The Genoa branch of the Syndical ists has already threatened a strike. A procession and demonstration which it was ' proposed to hold in Rome was prohibited by the police. A critical stage bus been reached in the afl'airs of the dockers in Finland, which may result in a big strike. Negociations are proceeding with the employers.

India. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 18 March 1911
India. ' 'Apropos of the recent ' riots ' in Bom bay, when the Worcestershire Regiment was successful in murdering some fifty natives (these, are 'official1' figures), comrade Tuohy, of Kensington, sends us the follow ing extract from a letter he has received from a' friend in that city: .... No newspaper men were there, so the news '?? papers ouiy puunsu niuiu tuc yuiiw. iinu military authorities told them — viz. , ' ad ' mirable restraint of soldieir. while being pelted with stones.' But we know a man who was there. The stone throwing was done by excited boys and youths under twenty, and the stones only fell at the feet of the military. Our informant says he ii was struck with horror when the soldiers 1 knelt down, without any apparent reason, || 'and poured volley after volley into the f: crowd. And they did not fire low. The ' police say they did. But it is a curious '; thing that all the killed and wounded have got bullets in their heads, breasts, and stomachs. ' — Justice.
Mustn't Say "Wage-slave." Arthur Griffith Objects. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 18 March 1911
Mustn't Say 'Wage-slave.' Arthur Griffith Objects. BY K. V. COHAN. AimiiTit Giukkith recently wrote to Barnett, secretary A.M. A., deploring the action of the Barrier unionists in using the word wage-slave. Some time ago the Combined Unions received a communication from Griffith, requesting the aid of that body to help the Government to pay the fares of the unemployed from Newcastle and the South Coast to the Harrier, as there was al leged to be a scarcity of workers on the Barrier, and the Government would require men for Umberumberka. Tlie Combined Unions replied that there were sufficient wage-slaves here, and some of the miners were desir.ius of changing from underground to Umberumberka. Griffith, in reply, in dignantly and contemptuously sneered at the word 'wage-slave.' This was to be ex pected from the man who said in Sydney yrmio time iimi: ' Then; are 110 claSSRS in society,' and he 'stood for the interest of all.'' For the interest of John Darling, who wrings thousands fro...

The War at Renmark. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 18 March 1911
The War at Renmark. BY K.S.S. Iiik fight goes on. The employers' dele gates have returned from Melbourne — like- wise Murphy and Brand. The politicians have been doing some queer wire-pulling. The local rag, the Pioneer, came out on March 4 with some scare headlines: 'The terrible gospel of class hatred,' 'The lamo-iiKe uaie — au vises unionists to cluvy scabs — And they do it.' 'Total destruc tion of the dried fruit industry threat ened,' and so on. Summonses are coming in fast. Special detectives and police (SENT ALONG BY THE LABOR GOVERNMENT! do you hear, you Labor Leaguers?) are arriving; and the police, having nothing else to do, are insolently ordering the citizens not to block the footpaths! They say that the rea son for this is that a certain J.P. (who is also a scab grower) was drunk, and as he passed along someone called out 'Scab.' Dale has been served with a summons — to appear this Friday, but the case will not be heard till about Wednesday week. I have been told that t...

The Passing Show. CONDUCTED BY OTUS. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 18 March 1911
j The Passing Show. ; CONDUCTED BV IYTVH. . Thk departmental regulation prohibiting the railway workers from knowing the details of the meetings of the Railway Superannuation Board is one of the most insolent, and at the time most stupid, bits of work yet per formed by a department bossed by men who are egregiously stupid. The railway workers should witnaraw tneir representatives irom the Board until such tire e as the anomaly is rectified — and if it can't be rectified any other way they should think out what effect a 48 hours' strike would have on those who are determined that the common working class shall not know what their bosses are doing with their interests. N.S.W. Government prosecutes a Federal Labor-member, who objects to secrecy re the Railway Superannuation Board; and a Fed eral Minister of the Crown wires : ' Bravo, -: ? Brother Catts. If you need either bail or . boodle, wire. There should be no secrecy, ? which is only the germ of both conspiracy and piracy in publi...
THE MAN UNDER THE STONE. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 18 March 1911
THE MAN UNDER THE STONE. — . — ^ Whkn 1 see a workingnuin with muuth.s to feed, Up, day after day, in the dark before the dawn, And coining home, night after nigh , through the dusk, Swinging forward like some fierce silent luiimal, 1 see a man doomed to roll a human stunt' up an endless steep. He strains it onward incli by stubborn inch, Crouched always in the shadow of the rock. See where he crouches, twisted, cramped, mis shapen'. . He lifts for their life; The veins knot and darken — Blood surges into his face . . . Now he loses— now he wins — Now he loses — loses — (God of my soul!) Ho dlgi- his feet into the earth — There s a moment of terrified effort . . . AVill tliu huge stone break his hold, And crush him as it plunger to the gulf'.' The silent struggle goes on and on, Like two contending in a dream. — Edwin Maukham.
