Our Open Letter to Judge Heydon. i How It was Viewed by the Judge. Judge's Chambers, Industrial Court, Sydney, SI. 3.1 1. Dear Sir, — Some one has been kind enough to send to me a copy of The International Socialist containing your open letter to me. I have read it with great interest, and I write now to express my sincere apprecia tion of ttie fair and courteous tone of your remarks so far as they relate to me (and in deed I think throughout the letter) . Yours trulv, GHAS. C-. HEYDOX. H. E. Holland. ? The following resolution v as placed on the U.L.U. books at Renniark. and ordered to be sent to the press, and also to Labor- member Wallis: ''That this Union has no confidence in Chief Secretary Wallis, and we consider he is only a tool in the hands of the capitalist class, for his action in sending police to Ren mai'k. '' Wha1. the mover of that motion has got to learn is that Wallis is only one of a gang. It is the Parliament of S. A . that reflects the wishes of Capitalism. Parli...

Lock-out at Balmain. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 8 April 1911
Lock-out at Balmain. Thukk weeks ago the manager of the Bal main Colliery gave the miners notice that, after 21 days, conditioiis would be changed and a hewing rate of Is 6&1 would be in stituted. This was at once rejected by the men — it would have meant a reduction of about :--s (id a day. They offered to accept a hewing rate of 2s bd. 1 his the manager declined. A conference was held on Tues day of last week, when the miners were offered 2s OM per ton on condition they would accept the whole of the Illawarra award. This would have meant increasing the hours from 8 to f), reducing the wheelers from .Ss !)d a day to 8a Bd, and also reduc ing tin; shift men who were entitled to Us -Id. (At a previous conference the directors laid it down that the miners were entitled to a shilling a day more than the Illawarra miners because of the terrible depth and heat of the mine.) The miners were quite prepared to go on working under the existing conditions, but when they pre sented the...
France. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 8 April 1911
France. Durand's release took place at four in the morning. At that hour at which Diebles is in the habit of entering the cells of pris oners condemned to death, thatDurand was awakened, told he was free, and invited to dress. Durand was at first quite unable to believe the good news; he thought some trap was being laid tor him, refused to dress, and said he would not leave the prison till his old parents came to fetch him . This was the news given to a few comrades when they ar rived at half-past six at the prison. Some time later Durand and his friends proceeded to Havre. At Havre Station many hun dreds of comrades were assembled, and hun dreds of hands were stretched out to grasp Durand's. Among cries of ' ' Vive Durand ! ' ' the whole party started off for the Maison du People, where a special reunion had been ar ranged. Durand, in a few words which showed great emotion, heartily thanked all those who had worked for his release, and excused himself from saying more on account of...

The Class War at Renmark. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 8 April 1911
The Class War at Renmark. ftV K. .«. SPIM..UA.V. Nine women and girls and a boy were brought here from Mildura in drags by the Glowers' Ass., on Sun day, to do scab work. They tried to get them down by boat, but the loyal U.L.U. crew told the captain they'd walk ashore if the scabs came aboard. It is rumored that a Mr. Pickering — agent for Lord Ranfurly (late Governor of N.Z.), who owns the Delamore Estate at Mildura — had women working for 3s 6d a day. They struck, and got 7s. I am forwarding a seal) list; some of them are leaving here, and may strike other States. The employers gave constant men till March 27 to send in their names. A condition was that they re turn their U.L.U. tickets. Only weak-kneed worthless mules, who were never known to kick, would do this. Hundreds of casual workers have left here almost without a penny. These could have got the 8s a day for the season, but they stood out to en sure the constant men getting 8s all the year round. The majority have stood l...
Germany. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 8 April 1911
Germany. The Chancellor, in reply to an interpella tion by a Socialist member, has declared in the Reichstag that total disarmament is an impossibility. In the Reichstag, Ledobourand Noske de livered strong speeches, against the Naval Kstiliuitfis. I.erlnliinir -n\A ' tl-m «--»,.l-/»^^. of every land have the greatest interest in the prevention of war. The ar maments constitute an endless screw and do not abolish the danger of war, but intensify it. In order to abolish it, our patriotic duty is to fight against the jingoes in our own country. Only the limitation of the fleet can really diminish the danger of war, and we and our comrades in England are working towards that end, and that in the event of a war the right of capture should be abolished.' Ledcbour also strongly criticised Prince Henry's speech against the Socialists. Noske, after alluding to the shocking case of the stoker who was recently beaten to death, said he agreed with Erzberger (Centre) that England's fear of an a...

Capitalism's Trail of Blood. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 8 April 1911
; Capitalism's frail of Blood. I /'V ;/' blood be the price of all your imilth, flood God! we have paid it in full! Nink men have been killed in the mine uf the Pittsburg and Buffalo Coal Com pany, East Cannonsburg. A quantity of loose slate fell on a gang of workmen. While Albert Riley was engaged in blast ing at Terowie (S.A.), a piece of fuse ig nited some gunpowder lying near, and Riley was seriously burnt about the face and body. Percival Oughton, 17 years of age, em ployed at Poole and Steele's ironworks, Bal main, was placing a belt on a revolving pulley when his arm got caught. The whirling wheel flung the lad round and round, and each time his legs were Hung against a wall. He was not extricated until his arm gave way at the elbow, and he fell to the ground. His arm was torn oft' at the elbow, his leg fractured, and hisbudly badly bruised and shaken. Christian Nelson, wharf-laborer, working at Darling Island, was caught on the knee by a hook used for lifting wool, and sever...
Vancouver. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 15 April 1911
Vancouver. The coal companies in all the districts have been shutting down many of their mines, or large sections of them; and what the next move may be is not hard to fore see by the Socialist. As to wages here, they are nearly double those in the old country; but, on the other hand, the cost of living is also double that at home. Ladysmith and Nanaimo are both rep resented in the Provincial Parliament by Socialist members, and we hope |to have a member in the General Parliament at the next election. The European vote is very strong here, and is almost solidly Socialist, more especi ally the Finlanders. They have a splendid hall of their own, and do some very active work. — Justice.
China. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 15 April 1911
China. Sonic considerable time ago the Kaiser had a bad dream. :; In this dream he pictured a wild, resist less horde of yellow men pouring into Kuro]-c ?from the East, just as the Goths and Vandals descended on old Rome from the North, destroying our works of art and culture, and laying devastating hands upon all things we hold sacred, and leaving the scene of Western civilisation a howling wilderness. ? Naturally, the dream considerably upset him, and obsessed him for a long time after wards. Probably some remnants of it still flit occasionally across the camera obscura of his curious mental vision. But to the great mass of white folk there is a yellow peril far more formidable than any imagined by Wilhelm II. The possibility of a Chinese Invasion of Europe is at best very remote. The neces sary military organisation and general know ledge of the art of warfare is lacking to begin with, and as the virus of modern capi talism percolates more and more into Chinese economic, social, ...

Civilised Savages. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 15 April 1911
Civilised Savages. HY W.il.W. Tiik noisiest New Year's Eve the city ever knew never approached anything like the noise which accompanied the launchm-.' of the H r.-it wan-hip put together in Australia.- ff.M. Ifmiltl. How very closely we are related to the primitive savage, in spite of our boasted civilisation and all the vaunted signs of progress, could be seen in the noise and rattle amidst which the Warrego was launched. Savage man always accompanies any ceremony with the greatest pos sible amount of noise. A coiro borree of Australian aboriginals is fairly noisy ; a Chiuese New Year is a'period of ear-splitting racket; and Hottentots, Kaffirs, Arabs, Hindoos, and Indians generally create an awful din at any important function or public ceremony. We feel amusement and a kind of superior interest in the noisy cere monies of the savage, and we excuse him with the thought. that he is but a child wIig never seems to grow up to manhood, a school -boy with his love of din and racket.

Notes from Renmark. »Y K.S.S. The Renmark lJi-»iexr (a paper which gives loyal support to the em ployers as against the fighting II.LU.) has arisen in wrath or sorrow- or some other old thing to Hing a. couple of columns of reproof and invective and other choice manu factures at I HE iNTKKNA'riONAL So oialjst. The incident that stirred the 'possum in the Pioneer was re ferred to in your last issue. The Pioneer prefaces its determination to reach out for our scalps in this way: Mr. Spilhuan the other night rounded off a fervid address with a denunciation of the Pioneer, with its ' miserable mutterings ' and ' contemptible statements,' and concluded with the assertion that it was not a workers' paper, it was a dirty paper. ... In order that the crowd might have a standard of comparison whereby to guage the worthless ness of the local rag, Mr. Spillman held aloft a printed sheet which he described as a real 'workers' paper,' and for which he solicited subscribers. It was a copy of The ...
