Solidarity. [Newspaper Article] — People — 15 February 1902
Solidarity. The circus of the B.L.P. had a second fight over the war last week and by 39 to 25 votes upset the 'sons of the empire,' and carried a mild anti-jingo resolution. Here's an evidence of the solidarity of the brotherhood : sir. jneenan commenaea one reso lutions to the conference on Christian grounds, if on no other. Let them be really what they professed to be on Sundays. (Hear, hear.) Labor men mast be against all war on principle. (Hear, hear, and dissent.) The capi talistic suppress served up information and arguments in such a form as to in flame the passions of the workers so as to use them for base ends. He would ask them to carry their minds back to '90 in order to appreciate the affection of the capitalist*' in whoae behalf they were now invited to shed their bloocu He had great respect for the men whe went to South Africa to take their chances, but he contended ik was bad polioy for Australia to send away the flower of Australian manhood to come back crippled.

The Federal Electoral Bill. [Newspaper Article] — People — 15 February 1902
The Federal Electoral Bill. When this bill was mentioned some months ago, The People drew attention to iffe reactionary provi sions, and since then it has been made still more restrictive in its scope. One adult one vote is to be, given, bnt its effect ib to be nuJWed by the complicated methjpds of elec tion proposed, A fancy scheme of proportional voting is to be intro duced for the purpose of mystifying and confusing the wor;- ing-class voters, and is being supported by the Bogus Labor Party in order to keep away opposition and entrench themselves. AIho the proposal, which first emanated from the B.L.P., of a money deposit of £25 from all candidates shonld they fail to obtain a fourth of the votes cast for the successful candidate. This is going back on whta they had to fight in the States, and which the workers made one of their' most in sistent demands when the last ves tiges of political restriction were abolished here. N--w it is reintro duced by the very men who owe their pos...

PEPPER AND SALT. [Newspaper Article] — People — 15 February 1902
PEPPER AND SALT. Pbofibsor Wood is feeling the full force of daring to have an indepen dent opinion about the holy and sa- ored working of the Empire infamy — ' eqnal rights for all men in South Afrioa ' ; he has oourageonBly de nounced the war, and the horrors of the concentration camps, and has rnn tool 01 tbe capitalistic class and his scholastio brethren. He haa stated his opinion courteously and intelligently, and has to pay the penalty of being hounded down,: The savageswho have been educated at the Sfate-subaidised university are shrieking for his expulsion and the capitalist dailies arc; demanding his dismissal. ' Freedom of speech^ and '? British fair play ' ! Shades of Hampden and Pitt. The pro fessor is probably an anti-socialist^ but .with some more experience of capitalism should change his views. After all, his experience is only to be expected ; the universities of the world are the nurseries of capital* ism and breed the cubs of capitalists and their flunkeys. Every ...

THE TAILGRESSES FIGHT TO MAINTAIN THE UNION. I n Monday next the Tailoresses. Union are requesting all its mem bers to observe rates and prices— the modicum of relief they fought:-, for during the past six months. The' advantages gained were certainly: nothing very extraordinary, but stilt a good advance on thefearfnl sweat-' ing conditions hitherto prevailing; | When all the difficulties existing j and the labyrinthine ramifications of the trode are considered, the state of organisation reached was remark able. The women and girls through all the stirring battle showed a splendid loyalty and solidarity, and all through the first Btage in the fight bad been won, and so it had — until the Labor Council took a hand and forced and weakened the posi tion aided by the capitalist press, and now tbe union is feeling the effects of their pusillanimity.

MEETINGS. MARX HALL. [Newspaper Article] — People — 22 February 1902
MEETINGS. MARX HALL. ' Povirtt ' was the subject ot Comrade A. Thomson's lecture on Sunday nighfc'lasfc. He said thai quite a large number of people were under the impression that un deserved poverty was an unknown quantity in Australia* and that the country was in such a prosper ous condition that no man or woman Tilling to work need be idle — if they wanted work it was easily dVifninaViln. Thn neonle who held this idea were absolutely ignorant of their surroundings. Poverty was prevalent right at our very doors and was clearly perceptible to the most casual observer. By poverty was meant a lack of the tbingB necessary to civilised society— insufficiency of decent food, clothing and shelter. Before high mental development can be poBBible it was essential that the material wants and desireB of a community should be satisfied. There was no hope for physical or mental development so long as : men and women were compelled to live in a state of anxiety and in security, struggling from o...

Key Note. [Newspaper Article] — People — 22 February 1902
Kev Note. Mankind in general care very little for forms of government, or ideal considerations of any sort; and nothing really Btits the great multitude to break with custom and incur the manifold perils of revolt except the belief that misery in this world or damnation in the next, or both, sre threatened by the continu ance of the state of things in which they have been brought up. ^ Bnt, when they do attain that conviction, society becomes as unstable as a package of dynamite, and a very small matter will produce the ex plosion which sends it back to the chaos of savagery. — HttxlbY.

Last week with a great flourish of trumpets the cables to the capit - list dailies announced the glorious news that the empire had concluded a treaty with J apan, under which the two nations hr.ve agreed to stand by one anothea whenever tho necessity for so doing arises. This is heralded forth ai being a masterpiece of di plomatic genius. Ru»sia is now al Irged to be ou' flanked, her march tlimnrrli o»ufc checked. and her des-gns on Manchuria car'ailed. The ' open door ' policy is to pre vail, and envions capitalist powers are said t.o be overwhelmed with this clever stroke of diplomacy. ^ ? Boiled down what do'S it all amount to, anyhow ? Well, simply this : That J apan has marvellously developed as a' capitalist state since her defeat of Chiua in the last war. Her ancient tradition^ customs, and former primitive industrial system are being rapidly superseded and wiped out by the adoption of more modern capitalist methods of pro dqptjpq. , Ab « aj;.bay...
