57 HOURS—25 BOB. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 22 April 1916

57 HOURS— 25 BOB. The following from the Glasgow 'For- iivr!' of Feb. 19 is interesting in view of iho tall tales going the rounds of the capi talist press as to the high wages paid to munition workers in Great Britain: — '(Mi the 10th iust., a man, called Win. Barbcur, applied to the Glasgow Munitions ?'Tribunal for a. clearance certificate from Messrs.

A YELLOW STREAK. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 22 April 1916

A YELLOW STREAK. There is a picture at pi-esent being shown in Sydney called 'The Yellow Streak.' The initiated are aware that the term is Yankee slang for a streak of cowardice. One part of the 'movie' shows a highwayman de claring that he always made things hot for those who 'showed yellow.' There may be something in the highwayman's philosophy. The world would be much better off without cowards. But this is not an advertisement f r\t- n r»i nf n -*-a clinii- TMinvn ic a. i^/m 11+-. 4-j'\ fhn story. There is a magisterial beak in Sydney who must have seen that picture. An alleged 'man' appeared before his beakship a few days ago belonging to an alleged organisa tion called the 'I.W.W. Club' (no connection with the I.W.W.), charged under the War Precautions Act with prejudicing recruiting. The surroundings of a Police Court was evi dently too much for this — 'man.' At all events, he 'saw yellow.' With a piteous and contemptible whine he pleaded to the beak that he did not belong to...

BROKEN HILL NOTES. Propaganda meetings were held here op posite Post Office in Argent -street on Fri day and Sunday evenings last with consid erable success, although heavy showers of rain caused us! to cut short our meeting- on Sun day evening. F.W. Paul Freeman gave an other lecture on Economics last Sunday at 11 a.m., which was followed by a speakers' class. These meetings are being , held every week, and anv worker in Broken Hill is in vited to attend. At the ordinary business meeting held last Sunday afternoon an Agitation Committee consisting of F.Ws. Triffit, Trenwith, and Williama was elected to organise the propa ganda activities of the Local, so we hope soon to see the Barrier circulation of ''Direct Action' going up by leaps and bounds.

There are some sheds to finish shear ing, and they will all fall into line. It was decided to ask the transport workers' coop eration at meetings held here and Barcal diue. There has been a bit; rainfall here during (ho last week — from iive to nine inches. T3ie weather has cooled off considerably, and from experience I know the poor little fly, a pesL (o all of us at ordinary times, is going to help us considerably in. the sheds, as there is more than 12 mouths' wool on the sheen.

Spasms [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 22 April 1916

Spasms By TOM BARKER. 'The Empire has found a Man.' So says the ''Daily Mail' about the microscopic Billy. They might have added, 'and Australia has lost a Squib.' * * * * John McLean, of Glasgow, has been sen tenced to three years' hard labor under the Defence of the Realm-Act for prejudicing re cruiting, etc. And yet in Germany. Lieb necht is allowed to make the most outspoken statements about the Gprman Government. and their conduct of the war. Whether 'British democracy' (whatever the hell that is) will ultimately conquer 'Prussian kul tuv' is a matter of conjecture, but it is- quite evident that British militarism is quit,: capable of outdoing even the German va riety. At the next election, the Labor Party ir. N.S.W. is going to have to fight for its life. Betwixt the secession of the Trade Onion Party, the petrol scandal, and my own case, their difficulties are going to be many. If the Quarter Sessions Court uphold the magistrate's decision it will h? the duty of al! members a...

Fellow-worker King left for Melbourne last week in connection with Barker's case, ;i.nd encouraging reports have been received with regard to prospective meetings there.

A resolution, condemning- the action of the authorities was moved in connection with the conviction of Barker- Evidently the officials of this or ganisation, if thej7 can avoid it, have no in tention of even indirectly censuring their scab President, Little Billy, who was in the first place responsible for the War Precau tions Act.

Great Britain. I.W.W. (BRITISH) BULLETIN. The following Bulletin has come to hand from the general secretary, British Adminis tration : — In future a monthly Bulletin will be is sued to locals on the lines of.' the American Bulletin. From various causes the organisa tion was in a very bad state back in Octbber ias-t, chiefly owing to the apathy of the G-E.B., the general officials and the mem bers themselves. At the end of October an emergency meeting was called and the whole organisation overhauled. New \G.E.B. and omemis were appointed, uiu.

The Steel Trust Murders The circular letter published below is one just received from Youugstowu, Ohio U.S.A., in connection with the arrest of David In gar, a member, of the i.W. W.

When they got through with the paid job they came to Youngstown to do, three union working men were dead, twenty more labor rebels had bullet wounds on their bodies, and somewhere over 1,000,000 dollars worth of property lay smoking- in ruins.

The 'Worker' and Slowing Down. The following appeared in the 'Austra- lian Worker' of April 13: — F. G. Ayres, of South Australia, seems tu be greatly perturbed because 'The Wcrk . er,' in a recent article, took N.S.W. Assis tant Railway Commissioner 'Jklilne to task for lecturing some of his employees when they had the temerity to protest against speeding-up. F. G.

This I paper hasn't, and never did have, any faith I ih sabotage.

I.W.W. Preamble. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 22 April 1916

I.W.W. Preamble. The working class and the employing class have nothing in common. There can be no peace so long as hunger and want are found among millions of working people, and the few who make up the employing class have all the good things of life. Between these two classes a struggle must go on until the workers ot me worm uib-''-'- as a class, take possession of the earth and the machinery of production, and abolish the wage system. We find that the centreing of the manage ment of industries into fewer and fewer hands makes the trade unions unable to, cope with the ever-growing power of the employing class. The trade unions foster a state of af fairs which allow one set of workers to be pitted against another set of workers in the same industry, thereby helping to defeat one another in wage wars. Moreover, the trade unions aid the employing class to mislead the workers into the belief that the working-class have interests in common with their em ployers. These conditions can ...
