SCRATCHING THE SURFACE. [Newspaper Article] — People — 15 February 1902
SCRATCHING THE SURFACE. As idol seems necessary to the po pulace, and if one does Dot appear they generally make one. The workers, since in modern times they became somewhat conscious of their power, and gleaned a faint idea of their political power, have been played with, galled and flattered by so rue political 01 nm bo-Jura do who has been raised to a pedestal by their votes atid applaui-e, and have been miserably side-tracked. The proverbial stone has taken the place of the bread promised, asked for, and expected. Australia is strewn from end to end with political wrecks and burBted Utopians. Sioce the workers took politital action in this coautry some ten years ago, when they created ' Labor Parties,' every conceivable kind of 'social reform' lias been advocated on their behalf, and with the exception of a few minor measures, The People asks in what way has the burden of the workers been made lighter P Are tbeymore free economically and ind- atrial ly ; is life's outlook bright...

What is Slavery? [Newspaper Article] — People — 15 February 1902
What is Slavery? 'Tig to work and have such pay As just keeps life from day to day, In your limbs, as in a cell, For the tyrant's use to dwell. 'Tis to be a slave in soul And hold bo stronp control Over your own will, but be All that others make of ye. So that ye for them are made, Loom and plow and sword and spade, With or without your own will, bent To their defence and nourishment. 'Tis to see your children weak With their mothers pine and peek, When the winter's winds are bleak— They are dying whilst I speak. 'Tis to hunger for such diet, As the rich man in his riot Casts to the fat dogs that lie Surfeiting beneath his eye ; And at length, when you complain, with a murmur weak and vain, 'Tis to see the tyrant crew Ride over your wives and you. Men of labor, heirs of glory, HeroeB of unwritten story, Nurselings of one mighty mother, Hopes of her and one another, Rise like lions after slumber In unvanquishable number ; Shake your chains to earth like dew Which, in sleep, has falle...

NUTS. It is iust as easy to be heroes, as to ait the idle slaves Of a legendary virtue carved upon our fathers' graveB. — Lowell. . The workers are slaves to Capi talism beoause boary tradition has terrorised them into the sub missive belief that things can't be altered History and expe rience disproves this. Lowell's verse gave heart and courage to those fighting for the politi cal emancipation of the negro t laves The wage slaves of to-day can free themselves when i hey make up their minds 'to vote as a class for the col lective ownership of all the means of life. Therefore, be a hero in the fight for Socialism. Major-General Hntton won't have politics interfere with militarism — he says so.

THE COMING MAN. [Newspaper Article] — People — 15 February 1902
THE COMING MAN. The development of man has been one of the most interesting studies that the scientific mind has ever applied itself. His origin has been conclusively arrived at. Scientists aver that far away back in t he centuries past man was closely connected with ' an order of four-footed mammals, with short legs, and hand-shaped pre hensile feet, usually long arms with clasping hands, and almost always a prehensile tail,' which freely roamed the forests with no cares of the morrow to disturb their tranqnil minds. And un palatable though it be for the King Edwards, the Toby Bartons, the Reids, the *ees, and their ilk, to recognise in the chimpanzee and 'ourang-outang a semblance of their former selves, scientific researchers are emphatic on the point. And when the charac teristics of these modern men and their ancestors are compared, even the lay mind cannot but grasp the reasonableness of the conclu sions arrived at. Regarding the '? Coming Man ' an American scientiat, Professo...

The Cost of War. [Newspaper Article] — People — 15 February 1902
The Gost of War. The Boer war has cost the British so far the sum of 1,500,000,000. It is well to reduce this to a compre hensible sum, and no better way can be found than to express it in pro duct and wages. T'e working class is the only producing olass i it is the only class to whose energy and tireless labor sooiety owes its existence, the clasa that feeds and olovhes and sheltcs and transports the whole of civilised humanity, the GilaBs that furmeties alike the ne cessities of life — thia producing clasa mnst therefore necessarily furnish everything that the Boer war has cost. It has been estimated that each worker in a year produces 1,500 dollars in new values. So an immense army of 1 ,000 000 men have been steadily employed for over a year paying the devil's fiddler that is playing the capitalist tnne of death in South Afriea. The work ing class is the only wage receiving class. A worker receives on an average one-fifth of his product or 300 dollars a year. Then to pay this gr...
Compulsory Arbitration. [Newspaper Article] — People — 15 February 1902
Compulsory Arbitration. In King Seddon's land, the home of the workers' salvation and com pulsory arbitration, funny things are happening. Barney Wise told, when he returned from his picnio there, of the., glories of the patent strike preventer, how men working at gold dredging were receiving 9s a day and asked for 10s ; the bosses refused and sent the question to the Arbitration Conrt, which awarded the men os — a reduction instead of an increase. The latest case is the bootmakers, who have been fighting through the court, for the last two years for increases, each appeal turnirg out unsatisfactory. And now they threaten to come to Syd ney, and the bosses say they must close up as their profits are not suf ficient to keep the factory going. The bootmakers here have, the last two years, befen organising, have met the bosses, drawn up a log, and failed to agree, and now look to Barney Wise's court to fix things up With this new influx to in crease the number of surplus boot [ makers ...
