The Sucked Orange. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 11 June 1910
The Sucked Orange. 15 Y A.) AX. Thk laws. relating to patents and in ventions in Australia are very lax and make the poor inventor an easy prey to the rich capitalist. . It is so in nearly every country. In England many clever inventors die poor/ Richard Koberts invented the self-acting mule and other ingen ious, improvements in machinery. Dr. Smiles in his biography says: ''Many have profited by his inven tions without even acknowledging the obligation f which they owe to ?liim.'J . They liave used his brains arid copied his tools, and the 'sucked orange' is all but forgotten. An other clever man, David Musket, caused an extraordinary expansion of trade by his discovery of Black Band ironstone in Scotland. Me also invented a process of applying Neil son's Hot Blast to anthracite coal, and, at one works alone, this resulted in the saving of £20,000 a year. Mr. Musket never received anything for his ingenuity. Another unlucky inventor was James Beaumont Nielsen, who pa tented the Hot...

Hughes and the Vend. UV U.K. II. Whkn it became, necessary, in the interests of local Capitalism to. throw-Mr. Peter Bow ling and others into jail, Mr. Wade hastened to make a new statutory law to ensure that they should not only be jailed, but that the Court should have power to award them SIX TIMES the vicious punishment hither to deemed sufficient by both Coercionist and Labor members for unionists who dared to jeopardise the interests. of the Profit-makers by striking. In order to make doubly sun; that the .offenders against Capitalism should get a. full measure of the Law j ' pressed down and running over, they levelled charges based on their 'industrial Disputes Act,' but as the punishment in this case could have only amounted to two months, they called up from the dead centuries the judge made common law of England, and this they brought into application with the N.S.W. Industrial Disputes Act, and thus made it possible for the judge to indict any sentence up to LTK13. The re...
A Thornhill Lees Man on life in Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 11 June 1910
A Thomhill Lees Man on Life in Australia. An English paper prints the following: — A well-known Thornhill Lees man, who has recently returned from Australia, after an absence of eighteen months, strongly con demns the emigration scheme. The gentle man in question, prior to leaving England, was a glass bottle worker, and while in Aus tralia he followed the same trade, and also coal mining and other occupations. Asked if he would advise emigration to Australia, he emphatically answered in the negative. ' The advertisments in the newspapers only show the smooth side,' he added, ' and if people could come home for the same fa re us they are taken out for they would becoming back in boats full.' He says the Austra lians would rather see anyone than an Eng lish boy or girl. The cities a re overcrowded, and there is not work enough for their own people, and work could only be procured up country. Girls were sent to stations twenty or thirty miles from their nearest neighbors, and- they wer...

Socialist Federation of Australasia. Principles and Policy. 1. Objective. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 11 June 1910
Socialist Federation of Australasia. Principles and Policy. 1. Objective. Thb socialization of the means of production, dis tribution, and exchange. . . i 2. Statement of Principles. The present form of Society rests on private own ership of the land and the machinery (tools) of production. The owners of most of the land and the machin ery of 'production constitute what is economically known as the capitalist class. I lence 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 complete econo mic and industrial suhjection 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 ilicted upon the workers by the cnpifalistclass; and it. must org...

VICTORIA. i-lr. Archibald Strong lectured at tlu Party rooms on Wednesday of last week on Anatole France, Hermann Sudermann, and Bernard Shaw.' . The Socialist Co-operative Store shows a profit of £74 7s Sd for the last half-year. It is said that the store has at last sur mounted, the greatest difhoul ties which beset its operations, not the least of which were mu u.iuuiinious siauuers circulated against it. This week's Socialist is to publish a reply by 'Dogmatist'' to the criticisms of his pamphlet, ' The Materialist Conception of History.' Last Suciali.il contains a fine contribution from the pen of Hugh Swindley on Socialist tactics.

S.F.A. News & Notes. SOUTH AUSTRALIA. i . ? l*.1 1 \ ? 111* . 1 at a meeting oi tne rarty neiu in tne Trades Hall to consider proposals for the forthcoming conference to be held in Mel bourne it was decided that Comrades H. L. Denford and V. J. Riley be Adelaide's re presentatives. The action of the Trades and Labor Coun cil carrying a motion of condolence at the death of the King and of adjourning for. a fortnight without giving those who wisheP to speak in opposition a chance of doing so was severely condemned.

The Trades and Labor Council held a special meeting to consider the revision of the rule book. A motion was moved that no union be granted alliliati...
Finland. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 18 June 1910
Finland. The elections in Finland have resulted in an accession of strength to the Socialist Party, as is seen from the following figures giving the number of members of each party returned to the Finnish Diet at the present election, and at the one previous: . JLU1.U.. IVVI. Social Democrats - S(5 -S0 Old Finns - - 42 . o!) Young Finns - - 28 24 Swedish Peoples Party 20 24 Agrarians - - 17 11 Christian Labor Party 1 2 200 200 The successes of the Socialists and Agra rians place them in the positioii of outnum bering all the other parties put together. Fifteen women have been elected, as against 10 in the last Diet; but the number of women members belonging to the Social Demooratic Party is exactly the same as before, viz., nine.
Great Britain. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 18 June 1910
Great Britain. Justice, of May 7 contains a glowing ac count of the great May Day demonstrations held in London. Justice points out that Ramsay McDonald, paid .member of Parliament, and also na tional secretary of the Labor Party, did not find it at all incompatible with cither of those ollices to accompany a Labor Party delegation to Germany 'specially on behalf of the Daily New*.'1 Will Tliorne, in tne riouse oi commons, asked Churchill if he was aware that two de tectives from Scotland Yard stand at each side of the turnstiles at Harrold'sStores when the employees are leaving work; and if he intended preventing detectives from Scotland Yard being used by this firm inside the Stores ? In the Commons, Keir Hardie gave chap ter and verse of foul outrages committed by the Indian police on women and men. It appears that one woman died in prison, and her torturers have never been brought to justice: Hardie declared that when the po lice are proceeded against they get extensive leave of...
Switzerland. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 18 June 1910
Switzerland. The elections for the Cantonsrath in Neuenbcrg took place on April 2/-, and re sulted in a gain of four seats for our party. Altogether 23 Social-Democrats were elected, 03 Radicals and 2(5 Conservatives. The municipal elections in Zurich took place on April 2.1. In the third division the Social-Democrats had an undeniably large majority; and they again elected comrades to the 4!) seats in the great SUultrat. In the other four divisions the bourgeois party were in the majority; they also exclusively elected persons from their own ranks. In the small Stadtratthe nine sitting members, among them four Social-Democrats, were re-elected. In Winterthur our party lost one of their scats, that of Walter, who was defeated by 3,07(5 votes to 2,4(5:5. His neu tral attitude as chief of police during the strike in the building trade brought upon him the revenge of the whole bourgeoisie, who voted against him as a punishment.
A Plea For a Crisis. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 18 June 1910
A Plea For a Crisis. IIV K..J.K. Inmjsthiai, organisations are spoken of as though they 'wore of a fixed quantity, having always been in the state they are in at present, and as though they had no future outlook. This is far fiom being correct. Unionism has gone through a period of evolution, and is still undergoing the same process. While this growth is taking place Unionism is always on the verge of a crisis. Unionism that has been an economic factor in the development of society has in the past always been in imminent peril of destruction; The same is true of it to-day. To be a force in economic development Unionism must take its place in the struggles of society ; when it ceases to do this it has out grown its usefulness. Trades Unionism has. been alight ing force which grew with the wage system. Those trades and callings which did not organise to protect themselves against the rapacity of the employing class soon sank into the ? most wretched slate of degradation.1 As far back ...

Before the age of the glacial flow, or the earth was a blazing sun ; A inillion worlds in embryo, yet nothing there seemed to Iw, Save a shimmering, shining, .shifting glow like waves on a liery sea. A million ii'on.s came ami past— it seemed in the LW111IV 111 illl UJU Vapor-covered, green and vast, a giant Mars whirled by; I caught a glimpse of bubbling sea, as the vapor upward swirli'd, The voice, of an i arthquake roared at me, and 1 knew my own good world. Then all was dead, it seemed, and white and cold, and silent all ; Till a hlsizing orb Hashed on its light, and shivered the funeral pall. I saw tlie glaciers melt away, the trackless ice-lields pass ; The rocks show out in the light of day, and soon. the green of the grass. Then step by step and age by age, even and night and morn, I saw the countless battles wage as the many tin ngs were born; Manifold group Kuceeedinggroup— wondrous forms they were— Eac...
