THE SOCIAL DEMOCRAT A SOCIALIST COMPOSER AND HIS ART. [Newspaper Article] — People — 15 March 1902
THE SOCIAL DEMOCRAT A SOCIALIST COMPOSER AND HIS ART. Oh a calm and beautiful Sunday evening early in Jane we gathered together, a few kindred souls, round the hospitable board of two brave and beloved comrades, whose trium phant love-joy we shared, even as we recently had shared the sorrows of their Gethsemane. The life and : bouI of our little party was a big . Russian musician, whose genial ; - humour and almost boyish enthu siasm affected us all. A man of distinguished appearance and bear ing, his face bore the unmistakable stamp of genins ; it seemed to be perfectly familiar to me, yet I could not recall where I had seen it be^ fore, and in vain did I tax my , .''' men ory - perhaps some picture, half-forgotten, had been recalled and only dimly recognised. '* Play us something, Bronnoff,' said someone, when the meal was ? over and we were gathered in the modest drawing-room. ' .Yes, do ! Play us something of your own,' we urged in unison. Brounoff rose without the sligh test tr...

WAGE-LABOR AND CAPITAL. WHAT ABE WAGES AND HOW ARE THEY DETERMINED.—CONTINUED. [Newspaper Article] — People — 15 March 1902
WAGE'LABOR AND CAPITAL. Bt Earl Marx. WHAT ARE WAGES AWD HOW ABE THET DETERMINED. — CONTINUED. We might show from another point of view how not only the supply, bnt also the demand, is de termined by the cost of production ; but this would lead us too far from our present subject ? We have just seen how the fluc tuations of supply and demand al ways reduce the price of a commo dity to its cost of production. It is true that the precise price of a commodity is always either above or below its cost of production ; but the rise and fall reciprocally balance each other, so within a certain period, if the ebb and flow of the business are reckoned up together, commodities are exchanged with one another in accordance with their cost of production ; and thus their cose of production determines their price. The determination of price by cost of production is not to be un derstood in the sense of the econo mists. The economists declare that the average price of commodi ties is equal to the co...

A Clear Statement. [Newspaper Article] — People — 15 March 1902
fl Clear Statement. The mo't important truth that he who calls himself a Socialist must recognise sooner or later is that Socialise is a working-class movement. It is not a great pre conceived humanitarian movement having for its express purpose the up-lifting of civilization ; by the es tablishment of economic justice that must follow as a matter of course. But the revolutionary Socialist is not an altruist as the term is generally applied. He is merely fighting for his interests and the in terests of hia class. He sees that by the evolution of industry a pro pertiless class has been produced. Although having produced every thing, this class is robbed of it all, except that portion which the capi talist class gives back in the shape of wa --s, just sufficient to sustain life and perpetuate the species. Socialism, then, is fcl-e awakening of a class to tlie consciousness that it is being robbed, and shows a way in which they can gain control of the public powers in order to legis la...
SLINGS & ARROWS. [Newspaper Article] — People — 15 March 1902
SLINGS & ARROWS. Capitalism makes cowards of the working class ; they find themselves hemmed in its meshes, afraid to speak or act for fear of losing their job. Nothing but work — work ; as no work means starvation for them selves and their families. Yet the class they slave for and keep by their labor are continually insulting them. Last week at Goulburn the local bench was wrestling with some of the problems of the Early Closing Act — that wonderful measure of salvation — when the following jibe at the workers was made by one of the bucolic beaks : , The Police Magistrate said it ap- I peared to him that the Government were now legislating against every thing but laziness. They did not now legislate to make men work, but not to work. — o — When will the workers be men enough to kick against the brass bound impudence of the capitalist class and their jackals ? In no country in the world do the workers toil harder than in Australia. They have opened up the conti:.ent from en...
Federal Electoral Bill Fraud. [Newspaper Article] — People — 15 March 1902
Federal Electoral Bill Fraud. . ? * ? The Senate is allowed to play with the Federal Electoral Bill to fill in time till the tariff bill reaches them, and of course on the chance of getting it. through. The People has repeatedly drawn attention to the inequalities of this fraud of a measure, and the gross betrayal of the working clans by the Bogus Labor Party in introducing — they were the first to bring it forward — a money deposit of £25 from all candidates who do not poll a fourth of the votes cast. So far not one of the creatnres who ' represent ' Labor in the Senate has raised hia voice against it.- They also support the ' proportional voting' fraud— ''in order to ensure the rights of minorities.' Now this is all bun kum, and they know it. No kind of fancy voting is go;ng to help Labor — or else would Barton and Co. favor it ? Brace Smith and M'Millan are advocates of it suffi cient in itself to damn it at once for every worker with brains and horse-Bonae. For Labor there can b...
