OPENING THE CAMPAIGN THE PROTESTANT HALL MEETING. A GREAT WORKING CLASS GATHERING. A SOLID VOTE FOR SOCIALISM. [Newspaper Article] — People — 23 February 1901
OPENING THE CAMPAIGN THE PROTESTANT HALL MEETING, A GREAT WORKING CLASS GATHERING. A SOLID VOTE FOR SOCIALISM. On Monday last, Feb. 18, at the Sydney Protestant Hall, the Socialist Labor Party opene d its first political campaign in Australia, thereby creating an en tirely new situation in the poli i.2~~ ? J* ? J. TT ? -A- biro ui viiiD uuuiineiib. Hereto fore the political battle has been1 generally' fought by two sets of capitalist politicians, and, who ever won, the workers suffered as a class. Then the intelligent working class man had no option bnt to vote for a representative of the capitalist class or disfran chise himself altogether. That has all been changed now, and every honest working-class man in New Sonth Wales, at any rate, will have an opportunity to vote for the principles of his. own class ; he will not now be com pelled to blackleg againBt his own interests on polling day.

Herein is given a clear reason why such undesirable people should be excluded, and. why ; the Socialist Labor Party makes ' such a demand. The socialist Labor party is the only party which can intelli gibly, and honestly, and earnestly voice the demands of the work ing-class. It being the desire of every worker to maintain and to raise his standard of living, it follows that every worker is op posed to anything that menaces the existing standard. The So cialist Labor Party is composed of that portion of the working class that recognises that the standard of living to fixed, raised, lowered, by that class of the community owning the means of ...
SOCIALISM. A paper read before the Albany Prees Club (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — People — 23 February 1901
SOCIALISM. — ♦ ? ? ? A paper read before the Albany Press Club By WILLIAM SCHOLL McCLURE. (Beprinted from ' The People ' Library, New York.) (Continued.) Socialism does not propose any portioning out of the wealth of the., country, share and share alike, nor does it have a vague expectation that if this were done, it wonld some how or other stay divided. On no other point is misrepresentation so frequent. Of such sort was the remark of Mr. Ingals, which recently went &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; uu, lugaiu, nuivu raunubiy woaii the rounds of the Press, to the effect that if the wealth of the na tion were equally divided, 'Within six months some men would be riding -in palace-cars, some in buggies, some would be on foot, and some would be sitting on the fence corners waiting for the procession to go on.' The only drawback to this brilliant epi gram is that it requires for its proper appreciation ignorance equal to that of the man who made it. True enoug...
