BEHIND THE SCENES. THE SLUMS OF SYDNEY "WORSE THAN WHITECHAPEL." [Newspaper Article] — People — 8 March 1902
IBBHIND THE SCENES. B . . ? I THE SLUM8 OF SYDNEY | 'WORSE THAN WHITE I CHAPEL.' I ? | Last week a peep behind pthe scenes of Sydr.ey's boasted Igrandenr brought to light some |of the most awful conditions under Iwbch it was possible to imagine Bhnman beings conld exist In Knocking contrast to the rich pala Ktial officps, warehonaes, and re Bfiidencea of the wealthy idlers »as viewed the dilapidated hovels ind insanitary Burronndings wherein ;he poorer of the wealth-prodnoing jlflss are compelled to vegetate. For years — nay decades — have these conditions existed, and time after time have' the Socialists en deavored to direct the attention of the apathetic citizens of thi* State to the great responsibility that rested upon the shoulders of every adnlt individual in the com munity. Bu- it availed little.

WAGE-LABOR AND CAPITAL. WHAT ARE WAGES AND HOW ARE THEY DETERMINED.—CONTINUED. [Newspaper Article] — People — 8 March 1902
WAGE'LABOR AND eAPITAL. By Karl Mari. WHAT ABK WAGES AKD HOW ABE THEY DETERMINED. — CONTINUED. Before gointr more closely into the relations between rapital and wage-work, it will be well to give a brief survey of those general rela tions which are taken into consider ation in determining the amount of wages. As we have seen, wages are the price of a certain commodity — labor. Wages are thus determined by the same law which regulates the price of any other commodity. By what means is the price of a commodity determined?, By means of competition between buyers and sellers, and the relation between supply and demand — offer and desire And this competition by which the price of an article is fixed is three-fold. The eame commodity is offered in the market by various sellers. Whoever offers the greatest advan tage to purchasers is certain to drive the other sellers off the field and secure for himself the greatest sale. The sellers, therefore, fight for the sale and the market among the...
"BE THRIFTY." [Newspaper Article] — People — 8 March 1902
'BE THRIFTY.' 1 he apologists of the Capitalist system advise the working class to be more thrifty eat less costly food, live in cheaper houses, don't drink, or go to the theatre, or have any amusement whatever. Don't waste money on books or news papes, make your own clothes, mend yonr own boots, etc ; put the money in the bank, and you will be well off: some day per ha b — a capitalist yourself. Joyful prospeot ! One of the favorite arguments and illustiations of the prosperity of the working claps, are the Savings Bank records and averages — an exploded theory long ago; bat it has been hashed up once more, and ' Ontis ' in the Telegraph gets home on the hoary fraud as follows : What a man Baves does not depend on what he gets at all. It is a well known fact that some men will save more out of one pound than others out of ten. And the more miserably the man lives the more he putB by. The Savings Bank is an economic grind stone, on which the lives of the workers are cruelly fretted ...
SOCIALISTS AND COMPULSORY ARBITRATION. [Newspaper Article] — People — 8 March 1902
SOd A! ISTS AND COMPUL I SORY ARBITRATION. Those who fight for principle never lose, though for the time being the thoughtless may think so. The politician's game is to sneer at rigid adherence to any determined stand made for a great truth, whilst admitting it may be theoretically perfect and ethically jut-t, but urg ing that it is too far off a consum mation to be practical!/ realised in our time. Therefore, take what the gods of Capital are willing to con cede — the rHst will come by-and-bye. Besides, it is a mista'-e to stand out against overwhelming odds. Go with the crowd; look after your self: don't worry ; the days of un compromising fighting are as dead as the alleg. d ' days of chivalry.' Such are some of the arguments hurled (the term is used advisedly) at the Socialists for their unflinch ing attitude against every side tracking measure and bogoa 'labor reformt' The s&&&$L'Fm People Btand aJo^&n^Sttiil? in inflexible opposition to the Com ...

COMMUNITY OF INTEREST. [Newspaper Article] — People — 8 March 1902
COMMUNITY OF IN' TEREST. Tn the Worker of 22nd ult. there is a leader on ' The Coming De pression : Can it be Averted,' in whioh the writer states that these periodical depressions first made their appearance after the introduc tion of labor-saving machinery, which machinery he admits to be mainly ' wage-saving ; ' he further acknowledges that the immediate cause of the phenomenon is the low purchasing power of the working class, that is to say, the low wages of the wealth-producing class. Now one would have expected that a person posing as a teacher of the working class, in trying to answer the question- 'Can it be averted,' would have tried at least to give his readers some idea of the basic cause of the misery, starva tion, and worklessness they are suffering and will continue to suffer from. But not the slightest refer ence is made to it. ' The reason is, either that he does not know it — in which case what a capable working class teacher he is ! — or he does know it, but is del...

An injustice ii being done in the case of a number of laborers work ing at the La Perouse Cemetery, if we are correctly informed. An ex Minister of the Grown, Francis Abigail, is in charge of the*n. In this instance the ' day-labor sys tem,' we emphatically assert, is not getting fair play TheBe social relations upon which the producers mutually enter, the terms upon which they exchange their energies and take their share in the collective act of production, will of couroe differ according to the character of che means of pro duction. With the invention of firearms as implements of warfare, the whole organisation of tha army was of necessity altered ; and with the alteration in the relations through which individuals form an army, and are enabled to work to gether as an army, there was a simultaneous alteration in the rela tions of armies to one another.
