THE COURAGE OF RIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — People — 1 March 1902
THE eOURAGE OP RIGHT. To speak the truth is n' t always pleasant; current philosophy teaches the suppression of veracity as the better way to travel the path of life, thereby avoiding much incon venience and worry. Everything is for the bent in this beat possible capitalist Rociety. Let us patch dd thing-s a bit, salve oar con sciences a little, bat do no hing to unnecessarily incommode ourselves, nor any i hin^r likely to affect our own material welfare. From the capitalist cIhrs, and its apologists in press an i pulpit, all this callous in difference and cynicism is logical and t.i be expected From men of the working-class, men who claim to represent and express the views, desir. s and aspiratiot s of labor, three things -are essential — know, ledge of t he workers' economic position in socie'y, hones'y of pur p 'se, mid conrage to fight uncom promisingly for that class alone.

MEETINGS W- ' MARX HALL. f\ ' On Sunday night last, Comrade £?' Drake occupied the platform and |v ! discoursed upon 'Social Contrasts.' £ Be dwelt upon the position of the Working class and the capitalist :-~A . olass in society. The contrast was clearly pointed out In times of drought, famine or plague the rioh f:.-': non-producing class invariably cleared the conntry, whereas the . ' poor * producing-class were com pelled to remain there, and either become victimB of the pestilence or : fight it down. Dealing with the workers' eco f nomio position it was shown that, aeoording to Coghlan, Government 5 statistician, the workers, as a class, |v consumed the whole of their wages siv; consequently they possessed no fi surplus. Taking tbe returns for v the five years, 1894-99, in this J;?, State.it was shown that out of Jf' 76,838 persona who died, there were bnt 9,49? who left propprty, £/' , which was valued at £19,5 0,000.

The C.S.R. Co. and their Black Slaves. [Newspaper Article] — People — 1 March 1902
The 6.S.R. Go. and their Black Slaves. A cobrwspondent in the ?' Wes tern Pacific Herald,' Suva, writes concerning the importation of a number of Parsee slaves as follows : ' I don't think the C.S.R. Co. is going to pay any higher divi d°nds on account, of the imported Tndian skilled labor just yeb ; but at the same time f would advise those of your readers who hold shares in the Company to hang oil to thpm like grim death, for I am confident that, when these men are properly drilled into their business the shares will go np in value like srreas°d lightning. Tn the mean time, it would not be a had idea for the Company tn supply every Parana mechanic with a caBe of Wolff's Schnapp?, free of cost, of course, to take that ' tired feel ing ' out of them. After having: cured them of this complaint, I am sure that, with a little patience, they conld then be taught to be real useful. The Company, cer tainly, deserves that, that these men should turn out a great sue cess, for it must have c...

E Holland spoke, and dealt with : ^ii«Sn the emnloyment of soliool children of ... tender years- in- -factories* workshops. Comrade Holland also ^ pointed out to the large andience ?? present that the South African war ) was caused by the same class that ' caused all the misery and depres- ^ sion the world over, yet the workers . were always ready to do its bidding. At present they were yelling for the Boer's blood; while their own mothers, wives, sisters, daughters, had their womanhood degraded and their lives debased in grinding out profits for the class now ruling the ? destinies of the Empire.
