SOME FACTS. [Newspaper Article] — People — 22 February 1902
SOME FACTS. The classes, in order to success fully exploit the masses, have had to alter their methods from time to time. For a long period after tha Great Plague, laborers were scarce, and the method adopted was to fix wageB by law, and to forbid the worker to leave his parish. When the industrial revolution, consequent on ine mveuciuu ui wage-saving machinery, had fairly started, and the era of labor dis placement had commenced, workers were plentiful, freedom of contract was decreed and the policy of let alone inaugurated, under which the worker was at liberty to make his own terms with the boss, but, in order to prevent l\im uniting with his fellows and .making terms col wot© enacted. ; I ? '''v ? ?' ' We have now reached the era of in a u^rial combination and capitalist concentration ; and, in order to pre vent the enormous loss of profits they are continually liable to, by strikes, whether they are successful or not (the great Btrike in the English engineering trade of some fe...

Sold Again! [Newspaper Article] — People — 22 February 1902
Sold Again! .The Cheap Jack stands in tha market place, A-rolling his shifty eye, Twisting his plausible, wrinkled face, And pattering swift' and sly. You've seen him pause on his gaudy cart, Whsre bumpkins gaping stand, And practise his hanky-panky art With a quick and dexterous hand. He takes a purse in one hand, so free. In the other half a crown ; With his ' Watch ! there a no decep tion — see?' He cozens the foolish clown. For though the coin in tho purse may ring, It makes the poor yokel stare 1 To find, when he'B bought the tawdry thing, The half-crown isn't there. The candidate stands in the market place With promises bright as gold ; I You know his smug, persuasive face— His eloquence glib and bold. He handles his words with easy skill, Ab mountebank juggles with plates; And voters stand watching, agape and stiil, As over their questions he skates. - He promises this, and he promises that — He promises great and small, . ?

THE PLAGUE With Us Again. [Newspaper Article] — People — 22 February 1902
THE PLAGUE With Us Again. After all the blowing of trum pets by the See Government, at their triumph in wiping out the Plague, it has returned again, and as usual it is the working-class that nuffers. What else can be ex pected 1 — the rat-infested warrens they are satisfied to live in harbor the deadly microbe, and the filth they are surrounded with in their daily work makes them easy vic tims. J. he last visitation showed the horrors of the fceted dens and slnms the workers have to herd in. They are the sufferers ; but the capitalist class have sufficient influence to prevent any real, effective measures beini? taken to avert a recurrence of this filtb-disease. Factories and workshops des pite factory and other legislation — are insanitary and rat-infested ; yet we have inspectors with eyes which see not, health boards and munici- ' pal councils, all armed with suffi cient powers to compel observance of cleanliness and decency ; but it is not done. Why ? Simply be cause they are p...

Happy Miners. [Newspaper Article] — People — 22 February 1902
Happy Miners. A good deal ot sympathy has been at times extended to the Newcastle miners for abuses they suffer owing to capitalist brutality. Pictures of the horrible grinding they have to endure has been painted time and oft. Yet it all seems a mistake because the miners look upon these capitalist slave-drivers as. men and brothers, born from the same mighty mother, from the same grand stock — children of the, one empire, where freedom, love, brotherhood, ] justice and humanity are the privileges of the whole jnighfcy race. The miners are happy and contented. Alexander Brown, Dr. Robertson, Crowdace. Co operative Barr, and the Kings of Minmi, are their sworn brothers and friends Therefore, the miners stand for the empire against all comers, and are heart and soul for j the complete, absolute and entire Subjugation of the Boers, The mere mention of screw- sellar Brummagem Chamberlain will in - stantly cause their hats to be raised, and a radiance of glory suffuse their learned face...
Cricket and Capitalism. [Newspaper Article] — People — 22 February 1902
Gricket and @apitalism. Hobstbalia, when it is not agitated about preserving Joe Chamberlain's affairs iu South Africa, is either concerned about Tatts. sweepB or test cricket matches. Australians have in tense admiration for the cricket business.- They know all the technics ities of the game and swear by its exponents, Very rarely, though, has a member of I the working-class the time and ' opportun-ty to developo as a firat cli»BS criiketer. Like everything else, the institutions that control the game are dominated by the capitalists and only their pets and hirelings have a chance of coming to the front. Nine-tenths of Australia's loading cricketers are recruited from th? warehouses and offices ot the capitalist class, They are always against the workers, and help the capitalist every time a strike takes place, and when necessary have acted as special constables. The workers seem satisfied with the arrange ment, and applaud McLaren and Co. the ear ?' as they do -their fellow cov. f...
