South Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 November 1914

South Australia. Fellow-worker O'Neill has re lurned to Adelaide from the Milli cent Forest district in the south east of the State. Owing to him handing out the One Big Union goods, and posting stickers all over the place, the boss tried to silence hiir &.\ giving him an easy job at planting. Needless to say it did not have the desired eiieci. oeeiiit; liiuli wis- uiu uul stop O'Neill's tongue he was given a more constant and arduous job with a shovel. He acted up the mottoes on the stickers, which lell the worker 'Not to be a Boss's Man'' ; 'Go Slow and Live Longer'; etc. The ganger could'nt stand this, but he wouid'ni blow up O'Neill, so he went to the 'head serang,' whose name is Kayser, and asked him to compare the way that the I.W. YViie was working, with the way that the A.W:U. Mr. Blocks were going. The 'head serang' came to see, and he evidently thought that the power of his eye would have the effect of making the slave work quicker. But, alas! Instead of catching u...

The I.W.W. are getting in the dope in the cockey country. * * * There was no meeting on Sun day, the i8th, in the Domain, on accont of the wet weather.

Fellow-worker Reeve addressed a large meeting in the Domain on Sunday, while at night in the Hall, Mrs. Katz delivered another very interesting address, which was followed very closely by the large audience, and which aroused an animated discussion. * * * The sales of literature also were very good, as also were the paper sales.

West Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 November 1914

West Australia. Having got particulars of the I.W.W. from an anarchist friend of mine, 1 decided lhai it was the thing and took to ihe idea like a duck (o water. Since (:ien I have been thinking hard, and writing to all the militants to get them to join the organisation. I have been fairly successful, and in conjunction with others we will tor n a local in Fremantle at an early date. We ruckers here don't get a princely salary;, nnd mv last half easer went towards supplying the local with literatuic, so I can only offer services which, after all, is what is needed- As for as I can judge the local is an assured faGi, and the membership will grow, for 1 know a good few of the militants. As 1 get in touch with these I will preach the gospel. The boss on my job would chuck a seven if he knew that one. of his slaves was rebelling against the order of tilings. In all probability I'll gel fired in the long run for propagating anti- capital istic theories. 1 believe in the Class War, the Ma...

"German Atrocities" and Others. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 November 1914

'German Atrocities' and Others. Much is being heard of German atrocities at the seat of war. Rape, murder, and torture are the order of the day in Belgium ii the cables are to be believed. Details are dwell upon by the jingo press, and editors vie with each other in ex pressing horror and indignation at all sorts of nameless barbarities, and pouring forth their maledic tions on the perpetrators. The charges against the Germans may or may not be true; but even if true, they pale into insignificance in comparison with some of the crimes of Germany's enemies in the not very remote past. The natives of the Belgian Congo, for instance, could tell some queer stories of the "chivalrous and humane" behaviour of the Belgian officials and soldiery. The same papers that are now shedding Peck- sniffian tears over the woes of Bel gium were but a few years ago comparatively silent when some de tails leaked out of the inhuman and fiendish treatment of the late King Leopold's slaves in Central Afri...

Adelaide Doings. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 November 1914

Adelaide Doings. The plain speaking1 about the war thai has been indulged in by our speakers, and the appreciation of the same byi the large audiences, has apparently got thte goat of the master class in the Holy City, for the bulls have been paying particu lar attention to our propaganda meeting's of late and they have been busy with books and pencils taking notes ol the speaker's remarks. A few weeks ago Fellow-worker Kelly had his name taken by a bull with the appropriate name of Crow ley, who also attempted to procure tlie names ol other speakers from the above fellow-worker. Needless to say they failed, as the bulls were told to do their own dirty, work. Last Saturday week the bulls at tended as usual and when Fellow worker H. Clarke offered to sell a paper to Crowley, he was told by the 'cop' that he did not need a paper, but that he would get Clarke when he got on the bCfc, When Clarke mounted the box Fie paid some attention io the bulls and told them plainly that the l.W'.VV...
