TROUBLES FOR THE LADIES. [Newspaper Article] — People — 30 March 1901
TROUBLES FOR THB LADIES. Probably few among my reaaere will have much occasion for repin ing, bat the fashionable ten thou sand of Belgravia must be sadly put out at tbe Berious news which comes from Paris, where the ladies' tailors (male and female) have come out on stnKe, and wnere me mil liners are threatening to take sym pathetic action, One can imagine the distress of Lady Gwendoline and the dowager at the thought that the new gown may not be hoine in time, and how kindly they will think of he ill-bred working men and women who dare to strike for better wages. But seriously, the men and women employed in the trade in Paris mean to better themselves. They are demanding an eight-hour day, with ten franca fixed wage for men and six francs for women. Beallv, if t-uoh demands were for mulated by EngliBh dressmakers, they would have tons of politioal economy showered on the to to prove they wore driving the trade out of the country.

The Only Alternative. Reid the ridiculous said at Bed fern last week: 'To the workers who are protectionists from convic tion I would say ^his : If you want to see new industries established in this country, » by should not the Government ofAus'raliastartthem? Why should the Government not employ men in factories, then they wouia not nave to pay tne middle men manufacturer? Ton would be able to get a fair deal from the State. If it is a good thing for in dastrie3 to be established at the public expense, then I say that it is a good thing for the Governm nt to start them itself.' But he did .'t mean it. He was speaking in a working-class ceitra —a place the Socialists bave been stirring np, and he will resoit to an? dodge to get votes. - The only party standing for tho 'alternative' is the Socialist Labor Party — a party which has sprung from the wot king class, a party which is of the workers and for the workers, a.l the time.
