CHIDLEY'S CASE. PROTEST FROM MILDURA. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 April 1916

CHIDLEY S CASE. PROTEST FROM MILDURA. At a meeting of the rebels held here to day, 20th, the following resolution was carried, and duly sent on to the Minister for Justice: — 'That this meeting of 'In- dustrial Workers of the World emphatic ally protest against what they consider an act of injustice, and an outrage upon the rights and liberties of a fellow-citizen of Sydney in the incarceration of W. J. Chidley in a lunatic asylum.' 'They consider that the evidence of in sanity was insufficient to support such a conclusion. And, furthermore, that Chid ley, is a victim of a section of the medical profession, to whose interests it is to fos ter a state of sexual ignorance and dis ease, which Chidley, as a public writer and speaker has tried to combat. 'And holding the unshaken opinion that Chidley is perfectly sane, they de mand his immediate release.' At the usual 'Pleasant Sunday After noon,' held here yesterday by the A.W. U. officials (which by the way mostly consists of singing p...

Love of Liberty by Australians. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 April 1916

Love of Liberty by Australians. ? ? - T ? : ? (A. MACK). W. J. Chidley is still in Kemnore Asy lum. The fact that any man may be rail roaded because of his ideas is proof posi tive that conditions obtain here which will parallel anything in the way of des potism extant in any other country of the world, and the action of the authorities in incarcerating this man by underhand methods is a xlirect, impudent challenge to our ever boasted claim to be the free est country on the globe. In spite of all our brag about our love for Freedom, we see. the practices of the Spanish Inquisition and the French Sor bourne repeated on our citizens of the '20th century, and not a word of protest from, the great mass of the people. If we1 have any regard for human liberty why was Chidley ever allowed to be snatched up and flung into a mad-house? The fact is that in reality we who prate so much about our Freedom don't give a damn about Liberty ; we repeat , the different phrases as a child does prayers...

Labor and Love. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 April 1916

Labor and Love. jt is well-known 'to all that the A.W.U. pursues a policy of 'peace at any price,'1 .mil believes in settling industrial dis putes by arbitration rather than by the strike, but that- its leaders should be found endorsing the enervating aud dan gerous doctrine or love ana menasuip \o wards the boss; is i\ sure sign of decay. That working-class leaders should ev en listen to such . sentimental slush as 'love your enemies' should rouse all live working-men to action. To hear the class-war deprecated, and Jesus Christ morality extolled in these days of industrial turmoil, would be amusing if it were not so tragic. A Mr. Wash-bum, who has played a big part in A.W.U. affairs at Mildura, aud has been prominent in criticising the I.W.W., has just lately dished up some awful gut-rot, that must have made any live rebel within hearing1' vomit with dis gust. The revolution, according to this lead ing light, will never be brought about by a propaganda of hate. 'We must stamp out ...

APPLETON'S APPLE CART AND THE WHARFIES. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 April 1916

APPLETON'S APPLE CART AND THE WHARFIES. 'Bitter complaint was made by Mr. W. J.

Spasms [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 8 April 1916

Spasms By TOM BARKER. At the Police Court on my last appearance, the magistrate, Clarke, said that he was go ing to let me down light, lie presented me with a tine of. £100, or twelve months, for suggesting that the capitalist class of this country are gloating over the profits made during the war. A few months ago the part ners in a great Scottish firm were found guilty of actually supplying tlie Germans, through Holland, with several thousand tons of pig-iron. They got .six months. And there an- f.oinc of the biggest capitalists in Britain, according, to William Le Quex, making for tunes out of the millions of pounds of tea that have been shipped through Holland and Denmark into Germany. But, of course, they are the top-dogs. * * '? * * * Of course, the question of whether I will do the time in Long Bay resolves itself down ji;io a question whether the working class will aiicv.' the authorities to carry on this high handed business any further.

THE "DIZZY LIMIT" OF BLUFF. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 8 April 1916

THE 'DIZZY LIMIT' OF BLUFF. The Sydney Secretary of the I.W.W. was recently favoured with a visit from the police, who wished some information on the question as to who were accepting responsibility for - the 'Go Slow' propaganda. It appears that a week or two ago some exploiter attended j an I.W.W. meeting in the Domain, and Imagine his feelings on hearing a speaker on the , stump publicly proclaiming that he deliberate ly practised slowing down on the job. His sense of decency was so outraged, apparently, f that he rushed to the 'Sydney Morning J -, Herald' for sympathy and consolation. Sub- , { ?? sequently the attention of the Assistant Minis- j 4 'I ter for Defence was directed to his letter, re sulting ultimately in the above-mentioned en- ? , quiries by the police. 1 From a hint which the police officer dropped, j '.1 we gather that that elastic instrument, the , War Precautions Act, can even be set in j operation against those whose views on econo- J mics differ from those w...
