Italy. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 18 June 1910
! Italy. | Says Justice of May 7: The second ballot ? at Altona was to have been fought last week between our comrade Salvemini and a Min isterial opponent. But the ollicial bodies exercised such shameless corruption in their support of the Ministerialist candidate that at last Salvemini, in utter disgust, withdrew from the candidature when he found that it would be impossible for anyone to vote for him without interference. He issued a cir cular informing the electors of this step. The Ministerial candidate Yalenzani has thus been allowed a walk over. The con stituency is notorious for its bribery and its arbitrary methods.

Sweating the Servant Girls ! The Archbishop's Domestics. A complaint reaches this office as to the treatment of servant girls in the employ of the Anglican Archbishop of Sydney, Dr. Wright. There are three girls employed at at the . Deanery where the Archbishop tem porarily resides — a cook receiving £26 a year (10s a week), a parlor-maid reciving £24 a year (about 0s 3d a week), and a housemaid receiving £22 a year (about 8s (id a week). There are seven persons in the Archbishop's family, makinga household of ten to be attended to by these three domes tics. It is safe to say that l()s a week is the most sweated rate paid in Australia for a first-class cook in any household; and the same remark applies to the other domestics. These girls work SEVEN DAYS A WEEK notwithstanding the Scriptural injunction which lays on the Archbishop the responsi bility of keeping holy the sabbath day and working neither bis ox nor his ass, lii.s man servant nor his maid-servant, in its sacred hours.

Members of the International Social ist Party mustered in strong force at the rooms on Saturday afternoon to Avelcome the eminent scientific lec turer, Mr. Joseph McCabe. The room was appropriately draped in red. H. E. Holland presided, and, in an interesting and felicitous speech, introduced the guest of the afternoon; He stressed the importance to the Socialist movement of lectures such as Mr. McCabe had just concluded. Mr. McCabe, on rising, met with thunderous applause. He said that he had spoken in many cities in England and in Europe, but no where had he met so many long suffering listeners as in Australia. Looking back 0000 years they found contrasts of wealth and poverty, hap piness' and misery, sunshine and shame, and it was much the same to day—the millenium had not been reached, and he held that man's great 'duty, before he left this world, was to see, as far as in him lay, hap ...
