The Passing Show. CONDUCTED BY OTUS. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 22 April 1911
I The Passing Show j CONDUCTED BY OTl'S. A mas from America wandered into Tiik lNTEUNAXWJ«4XijSDi:i,VLiaT.^ijffice_ the jother. dsiy, and told how he had recently landed in Australia (he came by the Zealandia), ex pecting to find things humming for the working-man under Labor Party rule. At Toowoomba he struck a job — got it through an employment agencv, ana paici os ror u; bought the job, in fact. Wages, £la week and keep, on a station — Tall wood (a Tyson concern). Had to travel 25 miles or so west in a waggon to reach the job. They gave him an outhouse to sleep in, and planks to sleep on, without either bedding or bed clothes. After working five days he asked for some bed-covering, as he was beginning to suffer with the cold. They told him it was healthy for him to sleep like that. He replied that he really hadn't come there for his health, and if they couldn't give him better sleeping conditions he would leave at the end of the week. They refused to give him any covering, and ac...
RESPECTABILITY. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 22 April 1911
RESPECTABILITY. .1 went into ii meeting in the Town Hall, mul the speaker was saying: ' [ am a lover of forms and ceremonies; I would rather that the form were correct, and that the ceremony were imposing, than that the occasion were :i sincere one. I am the greatest liar in the world. I cause the betraying of women, and the. disown ing of families. 1 cause the churches to he tilled with hypocrites, And the adultres.s and her husband and her lover to kneel side by side at the high alter to eat the communion bread together. 1 cause a woman to live in one man's house, bearing meanwhile another man's children. I make the virtuous censorious; and the easy going, outcasts. I help the weakling to become the secret slave of Mrink or of morphia. 1 .subdue the strength of the strong, by diverting it into a hundred putty channels. I lie as a barrier between lover and lover. I dry up with dust all unoriginal minds. 1 ignore dirt, disease, rags, and poverty in gen eral. I am ashamed of hunger, ...
Incentive and Ideals. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 22 April 1911
Incentive and Ideals. IJY THK .-I.AVK. Evkky oyrituin of .society through which the human race has passed in the dreary ;prb-$ess of social evolution has 'created an ideal, the achieve ment of which has been the aim of the component units of that society. and the social efficiency of an indi vidual has been judged in a definite ratio to his success or failure in its realisation.. In the halcyon days of chattel-slavery, when Rome was ap proaching the zenith of her empire development, the leaders of those in trepid hosts who pierced their way into far-off Gaul and Britain and to the uttermost limits of the then known earth were the men to ?whom the homage of the nation was paid. Ciiisars and Scipios were the . objects of nation-wide adu lation, and Roman matrons in their day-dreams pictured the time when sons of theirs would emulate the ac tions of these heroic men. Feudal ism, too, paid its tribute of admira tion to the performers of martial deeds. The knight-errant, the cru sader, a...

Notes from Adelaide. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 22 April 1911
Notes from Adelaide. HY H.S.I.:.' Owini; to to the twisting of the manager of the Gem Navigation Co., the Renmark strike has spread to the boats on the river. During the early stages of the Renmark strike, Leishman, the manager for the Gem Co., gave his word of honor that the Co. would not carry any scab cargo to Renmark, but since the growers managed to transport the seal) pears to Adelaide, Mr. Leishman de cidod to carry scab cargo both ways for the growers. He said that if he did not the growers might charter a couple of boats themselves, and if they did this they would get a taste of the splendid profits the Gem Co. was making, and possibly start an op position company to run boats on the Murray. As soon as orders were given at Murray Bridge to load the Decoy with seal) cargo, the whole of the men employed as deck hands were called out; the men working on the wharves at Morgan and Murray Bridge also ceased work', as they refused to handle scab cargo or load scab boats, and the D...
Broken Hill. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 22 April 1911
Broken Hill. The Branch meeting was largely attended to-day. Election of officers resulted as fol lows: Chairman, J.J. O'Reilly; secretary, E. V. Cogan; librarian, J. Nolan; litera ture scretary, Ben Molir; vice-chairman, M. P. Considine; executive members, P. Lamb and Woods. Our open-air meeting last Saturday night was a huge success. Rancic, Bail, and O'Reilly delivered addresses. In the end, though, the chairman had to close the meet ing through- some unsober Laborites coming around and yelling at the speakers. In the midst of the jhriekers was a prominent Trades Hall official, who challenged the speakers to debate. Green in reply an nounced that he would meet any Laborite in Broken Hill who would come sober, and de bate Socialism v. Laborism. Green lectured on Sunday night, at the Socialist Party Hall, on 'The Social Pro blem: Its cause and cure.'— 7. :t. 11.

The Truth about the Labor Party. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 22 April 1911
The Truth about the Labor Party. BY .1. BLUMKNTIIAI,. (Omlhnvil.) Thk present system is based on the. private ownership of the means ;:of production. From this private ownership, with its corresponding effects of exploitation, competition, sweating, etc., we get the present principle of monogamic marriage, laws to preserve the interests of that private ownership, and the whole of what goes to make our worst of pos sible systems. The law of surplus value is the corner stone of Socialist economics. Marx, the discoverer of this law, showed that the difference between what the laborer produced and what he received constitutes surplus value. This surplus is divided up into rent, interest, and profit. As to the class struggle: The world must resolve itself into two classes— the possessing class and the dispossessed class. Consequently, there must be and is a constant straggle going on between these two classes. Says Marx and Engels in the Communist Manifesto: ' The history of all hitherto...

Renmark Notes. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 22 April 1911
Renmark Notes. Some of the growers, including Pickering, Pitt, and others, who were a hit hilarious, wore lit Saturday's U.L.U. meeting, ar.d did a little interjecting. When they, tried to tangle Spillman up. lie raised, glass of water to his lips, and retnaked: ' You growers ought to drink this kind of stuff.' 'The crowd saw tlio point, and cheered accord ingly. The interjectors were rather discon certed. Orders weru given to the police to pre vent the workers from going on the wharf. This was done to prevent, the l.'.L.li. from reaching its own mcnihcrs. The wharf is publicly owned; and CorponW Pnnton (who lives \\\a, line house built and paid for by the people, and who receives a good salary, and whose young son ncnn\ not have been sent scabbing) has been blocking people going on to the wliarf, and if they said they were going by the boat, Pan ton would call to the shipping Co.'*; ottieisil to ' get this man. a ticket,', etc., as though he (Pan ton) were the paid servant of the C...
Holland. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 22 April 1911
Holland. Six Socialist members of the Dutch Sec ond Chamber and eight representatives of the Socialist group in the Belgian Chamber met at the Hague, and agreed on a resolu tion to the effect that the fortifications of Flushing represented no interest either for the Low Countries ~-r for Antwerp, but that the Socialists ought to do their best to frus trate this plan, which would be only favor able to third parties, and which would be a pietext for the growth of militarism in Eu rope. The Copehagen Congress resolved, in con nection with this nfflffter: ' The Congress, recognising the fact that during the North Sea Conference pressure lias been brought to bear upon the Dutch Government by the German diplomats to propose new arma ments, protests against this infringement of a great power upon the autonomy of smaller nations with the object of forcing them to jom in tneir own continued increase ot mili tary expenses, and proclaims the solidarity of the proletariat of all countries on th...
Peace versus War. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 22 April 1911
Peace versus War. ! -*?? ' ,'Speak.ing at Summer Hill recently on ' Peace versus War, ' Dr. Zillmann said, inter alia, that 'War was? utterly abhorrent to the spirit of modern industrialism, and in the next industrial iriumph war will be made impossible. Just as the last great industrial triumph had given us not only the sovereignty of -1.he worker, but more especially the sovereignty of the worker with brain power, so the next great onward in dustrial movement will be in the direction of the inter national brotherhoood of labor; , and then the age of professional militarism will be over. Certain phases of orthodox Christianity had engendered the war spirit. That bloodthirsty war hymn, 'Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war,' had done much to sow the dragon's teeth of sanguinary strife by familiarising the mind with the glory of war ideals. One section of ^sectarian Christianity had adopted the whole framework and show of the , military ' army,' and it only v anted to give ...
