SALMAGUNDI. [Newspaper Article] — People — 15 March 1902
SAL.MAGUNDI. The Scottish and New Zealand Investment Company are realising their estate, that is to say the? are selling to another company or indi vidual capitalist. They have de cided to reduce the subscribed capi tal from the present £500,000 in 100,000 shares of £5 each, £1 paid, down to £75,000 in the same num ber of shares of 15s each, folly paid. Some people with narrow horizons would say this was a case of capital leaving the country. But it ib only a deal between capitalists — nothing more ; the capital is still in the country, and the workers are prodncing more daily. Capital is a product of Labor. The Industrial Arbitration Act is an instance of a capitalistic legis lature killing trades-unionism bv enabling the non-unionist to get all the benefits wpn by the nnionist without contribatinga single shilling or an hour's thought to the winning of same. * The trades-unionists who refused to work with non-unionists in the past are compelled, if they register under this Act, to...
CAPITALISM'S EVER PRESENT PROBLEM. [Newspaper Article] — People — 15 March 1902
CAPITALISM'S EVER. PRESENT PROBLEM m — Thb unemployed have recent]; been attracting attention again. That we have such a body in N.S.W., with a beneficent O'Snl livan disbursing public funds and« ' Labor Party ' as ' the real Government of the country,' seena passing strange. The daily prea nas, or course, uttered itself, on tbe question, perhaps the most candid being the ' S.M. Herald,' which says : — ' The sensible way oat of the difficulty and the only solution! that Has yet been found for the un employed problem is that persons who are, unnappily for themselves, out of work should willingly ac-J cept a living wage.' From tliis ill is to be inferred that the unem-l ployed consists of men and women! who demand something more thail a ' living wage ' before th»f mCl undertake work. But what, is il living wage ? The ' Herald' evil dently places it somewhere beloil 7s per day, as previously the artidtl states that agriculturists and pastol ralists cannot afford to pay ttaJ wage. How f...

Day Labor Handicapped. [Newspaper Article] — People — 15 March 1902
Day Labor Handicapped ? ? ? ?The day-labor system is — or ought to be — a superior system to the contract system of the past. The people should under day labor t bridges, roads, or railways con strncted by day labor ought to be the best of their kind. What I want to ask is are they getting this class of article at near the same cost? We doubt ^it very much. The system is being heavily han dicapped by incom potency and over Hupervisiou. It requires two, three, four, and in some cases five, men to do the work that one man did under the conrract system. Of cour.e the men under the contract system may have been o . erworked ; but we doubt any man's ability to do three, or even two, men's work. And for that reason we assert that the day-labor system is being heavily handicapped by too much and incompetent supervision. In some future issue we may give a few casett to prove our assertions. !'otato-man See says a 'Building Act'1 will be introduced uext ses sion of State Parliament, and amon...
AUSTRALIAN AND THE NEW HEBRIDES. [Newspaper Article] — People — 15 March 1902
HKSTRHLia flNO THE NEW HEBRIDES. ? « ? Last week a mild political sensa tion was caused in Australia bv the bombastic announcement that an arrangement had bpen made by the Federal Government in connection with its 'sphere of influence' in the Pacific. Th» following rutting from a capitalist daily puts the position thns : A FEDERAL COMPACT. How to countermine the field of French influence in the New He brides ? This question and the larger one of foreign encroachment in the Pacific Islands has reached an acute Btajje. For years the British settler in the New Hebrides has languished under crushing disabilities as com pared with the French resident, with the inevitable result that the foreigner outnumbers him now in the propor tion of three to one. For years past Messrs. Barns, Philp and Co. have practically sustained on their own shoulders the trade with these islands, but the Federal tariff has had the effect of bringing raati-erg to a deadlock, and in. the meantime frantic efforts a...

Nine-tenths: A Personal Matter. [Newspaper Article] — People — 22 March 1902
Nine«tenths: A Personal Matter. We have received the following from an esteemed correspondent : Sir,— I have just been reading an account of the opening of Technical College, Goulburn, and I paused at the following1 utterance of Mr. Ash ton, M.P. : 'If the foundation of a great and enduring nation were to be laid, the result must come not of legislative but of personal effort. . . . Technical education waa nine-tenths of it a personal matter.' Now, Sir, surely on reflection Mr. A^hton would reverse this, and say nine-tenths of the question were the altering ot the conditions by par liament, making it possible to seeare to all educational advantages— let him reflect how impossible ic is with the poverty and wretchedness ex isting that the many can take ad tage of scientific culture ; and let him remember that a high, yes the highest authority, declared it was impossible for any mighty works to be performed then because the con ditions favoring such were absent. Let Mr. Ash ton as a l...
SALMAGUNDI. [Newspaper Article] — People — 22 March 1902
SALMAGUNDI. Australia is said t'i be gifted with all the riches that nature could endow. Its mineral re sources are boundless ; its lands i the most fertile ; its beauty spots ] the envy of the world ; its sun- I shine the brightest, and its people | the freest. And tbe average wages paid to the men who sweat and toil in developing its natural re- . snurses is recorded by its statis- j ticians as being under 32s 6d per i week ; thousands, yea, tens of thousands of . its citizens are de barred from earning the meanest existence, and aimlessly tramp its city streets and country roads in the vain endeavor to sell them selves into bondage for an hour, day, week, or year ; its lands are owned by an infinitesimal portion of its people ; its beauty spots but act as scenes to cover from view the horrible, dirty, filthy, poverty stricken state of things that they surround ; its slums are said to be infinitely worse than those of Whitechapel ; its people are the veriest of slaves and ar6 econ...

Waterloo Branch. [Newspaper Article] — People — 22 March 1902
Waterloo Branch This branch held its fortnightly propaganda meeting at the corner of Raglan-street and Botany-road on the 11th inst. Comrade Proud officiated as chairman. In his opening remarks the chair man referred to the class struggle, and pointed out that the Socialists were fighting the system of capi talism and not the individual, and in attacking the system the indivi dual had to be reckoned with at times. Comrades Isaacs and Neill were the speakers and both spoke at length on the class struggle going on in society to-day. It had been discovered that no spiritual freedom can be achieved or mainteined ex cept by the realisation of economic freedom Private property in the natural resources upon which all men depend, and private property in the wealth which all men pro duce. means nothing less than traffic in human flesh and blood. Starving in the presence of walled lip and plentiful food supplies is but a monument to the capitalist order. ' Members are reminded of the meeting ...
