Not nearly -one-half of them are oiganised at all And when the railroad corporations? froih motives of good policy make a concession to the engineers or con ductors, it is gouged out of the poor devils who work 'for a dollar a day and are compelled to submit.

Socialist Federation of Australasia. ......+ .... _... .. Principles and Policy. 1. Objective. Tun socialization of the means of production, dis tribution, and exchange. 2. Statement of Principles. The present form of Society rests on private own ership of the hind and the machinery (tools) of production. Tni! owners of most of the land and the machin ery of production constitute what is economically known us the capitalist chins. Hence the use of the term ,_ ' Tim capitalist form of society.' This form ot 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 tha» siistnins .society, while j|, is held in complete econo mic and industrial subjection to the capitalist class, which lives on the wealth produced by the working class. To enable the working class to wage the class war, it must be fully conscious of the wrongs in jlieted upon the worker;; by the capitalist clas...
Editorial Brevities. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 4 June 1910
Editorial Brevities. Fhienos of Comrade Tom Mann will be interested to know that a full size photo of him was in one of the March numbers of the Illustrated Transvaal News, and that every week a column has been devoted to his or ganising work. In one instance a lengthy report was given of his opening a new So cialist Hall, the first verse of the Red Flag appearing in print. By the accounts of this weekly paper, Tom Mann is devoting all his energy to the propagation of Industrial Unionism. Remember, you workers, that you are the producers of all wealth. Remember, that the wealth belongs to those who produce it. Remember, that you divide the wealth you produce with those who t;ike no part in producing it. Remember, that it is pure slavery to work for yourself and at the same time to make a living for those who do not work. Heinember, you workers, that it is your solemn duty' to destroy the system which enables those who do not work to live off tlio.se who do work — I'Jxchanye. Two hun...

Briefly slalcd, it is the right of the toiler to the free find equal use of the tools of production,, and the right of the producer to their pro duet.

The Workers and the Papers [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 4 June 1910
The Workers and the Papers IJY THE .IIXULKlf. It is absolutely indisputable, positively un deniable, that the position occupied, power wielded, and incomes derived, by the whole of the press of this State depend, either di rectly or indirectly, upon the assistance, toleration, and support of the great toiling masses. Yet it is said that the workers are intol erant and selfish. Surely there is nothing more needed to prove this to be a heavy old lie than the fact that the toilers tolerate and even sup port that portion of the country press which fawns on and flatters,' crawls before, cringes to, and ciiters for the sweater and tyrant, and which follows the lead of the broad heels of Capitalism, and clamors and cries for the jailing of oppressed working men who dare to demand the right to protect them selves against tyrannical taskmasters. By the beard of Mahomet, the workers are not very intolerant or selfish, neither sire they wrathful or vindictive; they are, on the con trary, slow ...
A CHILD'S LAUGHTER. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 4 June 1910
A CHILD'S LAUGHTER. All the bells of heaven may ring, All the birds of earth may sing, All the wells on earth may spring, All the winds on earth may bring All sweet sounds together; Sweeter far than all things heard, Hand of harper, tone of bird, Sound of woods at sundown stirred, Welling water's winsome word, Wind in warm, wan weather. One thing yet there is, that none Hearing ere it's chime be done Knows not well the sweetest one Heard of man beneath the sun, Hoped in heaven hereafter; Soft and strong and loud and light, Very sound of very light, Heard from morning's rosiest height, When the soul of all delight Fills a child's clear laughter. Golden bells of welcome rolled Never forth such notes, nor told Hours so blithe intones so bold, As the radiant month of gold Here that rings forth heaven. If the golden-crested wren Were u nightingale — why, then, Something seen and heard of men Might be half as sweet as when Laughs a child of seven. — Swixiwhnk

S.F.A. News & Notes. SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 4 June 1910
S.F.A. News & Notes. SOUTH AUSTRALIA. Ik judging individuals or groups by their nets is the correct thing to do, South Aus tralian Labor Party should conic in for some very severe criticism for its actions during the during the past fortnight. At the Trades and Labor Council meeting a motion was moved expressing deep regret at the death of the English king. A member of the Council who wanted to oppose the mo tion was rilled out of order bv a ' dmiini'.rsi. tic ' chairman. A further motion was then moved that the Council adjourn for a fort night through an 'exceptional cause.' When a delegate got up to ask what the ' exceptional cause ' was, he was howled down and not allowed to ask the question. The motion was carried, and the South Aus tralian Trades and Labor Council adjourned for a fortnight through an 'exceptional cause.' When in the course of time the history of the Australian labor movement conies to be written, this item will stand out prominently to proclaim what ign...

Tiik New York Call relates the following in teresting anecdote: — A little girl from an East End slum was invited, with others, to a charity dinner given at a great house in the West End of London. In the course of the mod the lit tle maiden startled her hostess and the aris tocratic company by solemnly propounding the query; ' Does your husband drink?' 'Why, no,' replied the astonished 'mis tress of the house. After a moment's pause the miniature querist proceeded with the equally bewilder ing questions: 'How much coal do you burn ?' 'What is your husband's salary?' 'Mas your hus band any bad habits?' ' Does your son go to work?'' ? ? ? By this time the presiding genius of the table felt called upon to ask her humble guest what made her put such strange ques tions. 'Well,' was the innocent reply, ' mother told me to behave like a la...
Militarism. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 4 June 1910
Militarism. JJY A.IAX. In view of the proposals of patriotic politicians to bring in conipulsoiy military training, it is well to glance at the experience of other countries, and see how this policy benefits the people. Militarism has been in the past eternally opposed to family life ami social welfare. Legislative measures have been prostituted to attain this end. Many other things were sacrificed. Education has been perverted to train the body while neglecting the mind. . Family life, and all that it implies in the ennobling of character has been sacrificed to conscripton in Europe. . Children are taught to emulate the Avarlike spirit of the Spartans, -who sacrificed eveything to militarism. The famous Spartan matrons sent their sons to battle exorting them to return with their shield or on it. Sparta decayed utterly because her family life was sacrificed to a brutal ideal. The lesson of history teaches that the human intellect is the governing factor in progress. As society ad va...

TO THE WORKERS. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 4 June 1910
TO THE WORKERS. AVoitKEits of Australia, why croud, ye like cravens, Why clutch at existence of insult and want, Why stand to be plucked by an army of ravens, Or hoodwinked for over by twaddle, and cunt? Think of the wrongs ye bear, Think of the rags* ye wear, Think of the insults endured from your birth; Toiling in snow and rain, All for the tyrants that grind yon to earth. Your brains are. as keen as. the brains of your masters, In swiftness and strength ye surpass them by far; Ye've bnive hearts that teach you to laugh at dis asters, , Ye vastly outnumber your tyrants in war.

Know. ye not, comrades, that ALL is your own ?? ?Rise in your might, brothers; bear it no longer! Assemble in masses throughout the whole land; Show these ineupables who are the stronger When workers and idlers confronted shall stand. Through castle...
