International Notes. What Will Happen to Mexico. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 29 April 1911
International Notes. What Will Happen to Mexico. President Poukihio Diaz intends to have Mexico under martial law. The clause of the Mexican Constitution which provides lor the suspension, in ease of lawless movements, of the personal guaran tee, is to be put into operation, says the des Dutches. Henceforth, death is to stalk redhanded, and anyone suspected of being friendly to, or supporting in any way, the insurrection arie.-\ will meet with the maximum penalty. They will shot. And still the ollicial Mexican representa tives abroad deny that there is any serious trouble in their country. The United States authorities, however, know better, and the speedy mussing, of troops on the frontier as well as the cruising nf the United States warships along the coasts of Mexico give cause for serious con sideration. What is going to happen to Mexico. If the revolutionaries proceed as they have been doing not much time can elapse before Mexico will be. entirely at their disposal. The .Govern...
THE SOCIAL REVOLUTION. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 29 April 1911
THE SOCIAL REVOLUTION. — + Hahk, Hakk! a Hound like throbbing tides That break in awful thundor! A Giant o'er the mountain? .strides, ; And wakes the- world to wonder. Jlis robes are dyed with blood-red stains, As far lie flings his clanking chains. 100 long neia last thereunder, He rends his bonds asunder. Beware then, puny tyrant-lords, __ Who earth's broad lands encumber! No place is here for idle hordes, No room for useless lumber! For Labor bursts from noisome HelJ Of grinding toil to sound your knell ; Invincible in number, He rouses from his slumber. Stern Justice, from her ancient throne, Has bid this sleeper waken, And seize again upon his own, By crime and violence taken . Like sap that surges t'ward the light, He leaps from black inglorious night. Yea! he, the God-forsaken, The solid earth hath shaken. Unbar, ye everlasting gates! With privilege encrusted, Corrosive greed and cankerous hates Your solid bolts have rusted, Nor can the hosts of Mammoth stay The Victor on his...

A BEAUTIFUL VISION. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 29 April 1911
A BEAUTIFUL VISION. 1 see a world where thrones have crumbled '.'arid where kings are dust; the aristocracy of idleness has perished from the earth. I see a world without a slave, man 'at last is free; nature's forces have bv science been enslaved. Lightning and light, wind and wave, frost and fire, and all the secret subtle force of the earth arid air are the tireless toilers for the human race. I see a world at peace, adorned with every form of, art, with music's myriad voices thrilled, while lips are rich with words of love and truth; a world in which no exile sighs, no prison er mourns; a world where labour reaps its full reward, where work and worth go and in hand; where the poor girl trying to win bread with the needle, the needle that has been called 'The asp for the breast of the poor,' is not driven to des perate choice of crime or death, of suicide or shame. I see a world without the beggar's outstretched palm, the miser's heartless stony stare, the piteous wail of want, t...
THE GENIUS OF LIBERTY. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 29 April 1911
THE GENIUS OF LIBERTY. 'It does not matter that the Creator has sown with stars the fields of ether and decked the earth with countless beauties for man's enjoyment. It does not matter that air and ocean teem with the wonders of innumerable forms of life to challenge man's admiration and investigation. It does not matter that nature spreads forth all her scenes of beauty and gladness and pours forth the melodies of her myriad tongued voices for man's delectation. If liberty is ostracized and exiled, man is a slave, and the world rolls in space and whirls around the sun a gilded prison, a doomed dungeon, and though painted in all the enchanting hues that infinite art could command, it must still stand forth a blotch amidst the shining spheres of the sidereal heavens, ;md those who cull ironi the vocabularies of nations, living or dead, their flashing phrases with which to apos trophize liberty, are engaged in perpetuat ing the most stujjendous delusion the ages have known.

The Socialist Federation of Australasia Principles and Policy. 1. Objective. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 29 April 1911
The Socialist federation of Australasia Principles and Policy. 1. Objective. The .-.ocialisation of the means ol produc tion, distribution, and exchange. 2. Statement of Principles. The present form of Society rests on pri vate ownership of the land and the machinery (tools) of production. The owners of most of the land the maeh incrv of production constitute what is econo mically known as the capitalist class, uence the use of the term, ''The capitalist form of society.'' This form of ownership divides society in all countries into two distinct and opposing classes ? the capitalist class and the working class. The working class produces all the wealth that .sustains society, while it is held in com plete economic and industrial subjection to the capitalist class, which lives on the wealth pro duced by the working class. To enable the vorking class to wage the class war, it must be fully conscious of the wrongs inflicted upon the workers by the capitalist class: and it must organise...

Working-Class Politics. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 29 April 1911
Working-Class Politics. hv i-:r- ; kx k v. m;r.s. We live in the capitalist system, so called because it is dominated by the cap italist class. In this system the capital ists are the rulers and the workers the subjects. The capitalists are in a de cided minority and yet they rule because of the ignorance of the working class. oo long as me wurnci^ .nc 'iviutu, economically and politically,, they will re main in subjection, exploited of what they produce and treated with contempt by 'the parasites who live out of their labor. The economic unity of the workers must first be effected before there can be any progress toward emancipation. The interests of the millions of wage work ers are identical, regardless of national ity, creed or sex, and if they will only open their eyes to this simple, self-evident fact, the greatest obstacle will have been overcome and the day of victory will draw near. The primary need of the workers is industrial unity and by this I mean their organization in...
