Noble Ideals. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 27 May 1916

Noble Ideals. ' By ^'Ajax.'     The saintly "S 'merald," in its issue of   May '20th has a long leader on noble ideals. There is precious little in it anent noble ideals, but one could hardly expect lofty   thought from a paper that has consistent-   ly stood in low commercial ideals. The writer starts off with a sentimental story of a wounded soldier, who while waiting for the ambulance, thought of God, and   found a new way to prayer. The whole article is replete with references to God; indeed the '' S'merald' pleads piteously with its readers not to forget God and   spiritual ideas, and speaks tenderly of   Belgium 's noble King, who, according to Granny, lost everything except his soul. As this " hero" took refuge in Antwerp on the outbreak of war, and further bolted, to England with many carriages, horses and servants, without waiting to see if   his alleged impr...

The Source of Capitalist Power. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 3 June 1916

The Source of Capitalist Power. ; — ; — - — ♦- ? The injustice from which the workers suffer is essentially economic in character. It is not political; ? it : is -industrial in nature, .arising., from the simple. lact liiat. the master class exercise control and dominion over the vrork ei\= by their control of industry in their sec tional capitalist class interest. The capitalists ly lhink that they themselves have no power; uoi- indeed have they, nor can they Tiave, until they realise that they absolutely have all power, and can assert it quite successfully on the day they agree to do so. They will agree as soon as the mind fixes upon the simplicity of it all, and realises that the capitalist class possesses no power from itself and of itself, and that it simply dominates the workers by power given to them — the capitalists — by the workers. THE WORKERS RENDER ALL SERVICE..: to the capitalists as individuals and as a class The workers feed and clothe and house tlie capitalists, not...

Wages v. Earnings. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 3 June 1916

Wages v. Earnings. ? + — . The annual report of the Bethlehem Steel Company shows net 'earnings' of $23,672,000 lor 1915. It employs 22,064 people all told. That is, Bethlehem has 'made' $1077 per head for every one of its employes during 1915. That is all 'velvet,' all profits, all loot, swag — or call it what you will. It is the part with which the capitalist plays the game of 'dividing up.' It is what the workers made and didn't get, and what the capi talists get and didn't make. In 1914 Bethlehem 'earned' — to pros titute that 'noble Avord — §601 per man, in 1913, 9566; iu 1912, $405, and in 1911, §390. Now what, on an average, did the workers get? Xo figures are given.' But it is safe to say it falls far short of $1077 ; that it wasn't even a 'fifty-fifty split,' The chances are that it may not have been sixty-forty. Now watch for the fellow who tells you that labor gets 70, 80 or even 90 per cent, of the values it creates. He won't cite Bethlehem to you as an example, but you ...

'Evil Vapourings.' [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 3 June 1916

'Evil Vapeurings/ Thus the Melbourne 'Argus,' of May 18 :— Just before he le£t for London the Prime Minister referred to certain 'foul parasites' which sought to 'take up their abode in the vitals of their hosts and to speak in the name of the Labour party.' These parasites, for whom no other name has yet been suggested — probably because no better is possible — are still active. They have no settled home, but. like all other pests, seem to be dissem inat.ed by every evil wind. Usurping the titlo of workers, they scorn work as something only tor 'locis ana norses. Having, as Mr. Mugnes said, no nationality and no religion, they claim the world as -their sphere — no doubt be cause any particular portion of the earth would repudiate them and their detestable doctrine. The representatives of this cancerous growth in society are moving about Melbourne now, recommending shiftlessness and sloth to a people at present specially impressed with the duty and the necessity of conscientious wor...

CASEY ON THE BAND. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 3 June 1916

CASEY ON THE BAND. ? ♦ ? Since the days when a number of us, young rebels against peace and quietness, rent the atmosphere by squeaking through tissue-paper tightly stretched over pur loined combs, I claim to be an authority upon Bands. 1 therefore proceeded to give my friend VjclSL'.y U J.V5W jJUlllllilft ilUUUl IjIIU J-»clln.l MK, fore us. 'That man there — him with the baton, Casey, is the conductor. His job is to give the time to the band.' . . ' Six months' if. they stay too long on the bar; and three for not meeting the sergeant on the beat,' sez Casoy. 'See that little twiddley , instrument there? That runs up the scale, and coines in on the measure as though it had been merely around the block.' 'It's the weigh of it,' sez Casey . 'Now this big thrumpet here is more for the playing1 of the. accompaniments, ye understand?' 'Did ever you hear of the lady who saved her life by being a musicianer?' sez Casey. 'I niver did,' sez I.

I.W.W. Preamble. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 3 June 1916

I.W.W. Preamble. ? » ? . — The working class and the employing clafc? have nothing in common. ..There can be no peace so long- as hunger and want are found among- millions of working people, and the. few who make up the employing class have ail the good things of life. Between these two classes a struggle must go on until the workers of the world organic .IS a r.l.iSS. tnlcf- nns'spct.inn r\f tlm mrtli m.1 the machinery of production, and abolish the wage system. We find that the centreing of the manage ment of industries into fewer and fewer hands makes the trade unions unable to cope wiih the ever— growing power of the employing class. The trade unions foster a state of af fairs which allow one set of workers to be pitted against another set of workers in the same industry, thereby helping- 10 defeat one another in wage wars. Moreover, the trade unions aid the employing class to mislead the workers into the belief that the working-class have interests in common with their em ploye...

State Socialism. A POLITICAL CONFIDENCE TRICK. A. Mack. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 3 June 1916

State Socialism, A POLITICAL CONFIDENCE TRICK. A. Mack. The striking feature of our labour con ferences is the simplicity with which the - r, .-it bulk .of the delegates appears to be convinced that State control of industry is Socialism. They pass resolutions urg ing the Labor Government to nationalise this or that industiy, with the impression {hat: the wages system will crumble away and the bright paradise of the worker be realised. No doubt the intentions of 1hc.se delegates are good, but they are y.tuu fully ignorant of the real position, and lijiprar incapable of learning from ex perience, for if there is a working class anywhere which should refuse to be fool ed by the State Socialism cry, that branch should be in Australia. We have had years of State control ex perience and not in any case are the v.urkiTs in the State industries any bet ter off than those who grind out their lives for private profiteers. The tendency is in all modernised coun Iries for the Governments to co...

SOUTH COAST NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 3 June 1916

SOUTH COAST NOTES. A correspondent writes under date, May 20th:— The bricklayers working on the dupli cation of this line went on strike on Fri day, May 18th, for a camping allowance of 1/6 a day. Their award says that men engaged in Svdncv for country work are entitled to this pay, but local men are not. About 50 or 60 bricklayers are out, five of whom were engaged in Sydney, and get the extra, but for some time past, men applying for work at the Sydney office were told to come here and get put on, thus getting classed as local men. Their strike is a good example of craft unionism. The bricklayers' labourers can't work without the brickies, but arc making no demands for themselves, and the navvies are still working. The most urgent brickwork is about finished. Whereas two weeks back there were 3 or 4 culverts waiting for the bricklayers with a set of flagmen on each to slow trains down and flag them across. £21 a fortnight for culvert flagmen 's wages be sides delay to trains would...
