Open Column. Socialist Candidates. J. BLUMENTHAL Writes: [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 30 July 1910
Open Column. Socialist Candidates. J. Blumkntiial writes: The Labor Party now having taken over political control of the Common wealth, the Socialists should. profit by the glaring faults that have developed in this party's organisation. Speak ing to the average Labor member, f nn in f nvtMnxirm* ic: 1 11 in in/I in fv-»l \r of imioI* by the vast ignorance displayed by these gentlemen on matters of the most elementary importance, such as political economy, history and sci ence. This ignorance is reciprocated by the rank and file, and even if the Labor Party's objective was altered to the true Socialist one, it would have no visible effect, for any at tempt at drastic alteration, or forma tion of new laws and conditions, would receive a sullen protest from the Labor Leagues. Laborites not being educated up to the Socialist stand-point, they would not under stand or appreciate any revolution ary change made in their conditions.

An Offer to Pugilists. A wkix-known Sydney man lias for warded the following letter to Mr. \V. H. Wood,- Minister for Justice in the Wade Government: — ' Sir, — I am authorised by the manager of sev eral picture shows to offer you and Mr. Griffith a substantial figure if you will kindly repeat your recent encounter before the biograph cam era and grant the sole right to exhibit the same throughout the State of New South Wales. My friend de pires me to say that he fully recog nises the great draw a pugilistic com bat between a Cabinet Minister and a Labor Party leader would prove, and he feels confident that there would be no public objection on the grounds of the conflict being brutal; he in sists that all right-thinking people would rather welcome tho display of your actions before an enlightened and admiring crowd. I am further desired to say that my friend would' be willing to spring a much larger sum provided the fight lasted out say 20 rounds. An early reply would be esteemed a...

Murder! [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 30 July 1910
Murder! UY K.W.II. ' MuHDKit ' in large type is the heading of all capitalist papers when the assassin's knife or bullet takes the life of a unit in' the social organism, but of that con tinual .murder of men, women, and children in the factories and workshops and mines not one word. Their interests being the same as the exploiters of labor, not one word will' they print against the sweaters who live on the life's energy of the Avorkers, slowly murdering them . But one paper, The Ixteuxatioxaj. Socialist, stands out si glar ing contrast to those lying sheets. Its pages heave and swell with the history of human suffering. It shows how the worker is obbed, and the way of emancipation. It is the beacon light that guides the mangled victim of this system to a haven of rest. Its pages of truth reach not only throughout Australia, but across the waters to almost every civilised country of the world. When industrial trouble arises, its slogan is: 'The workers are always right ! ' ' But Tub...

Russia. According to the Jinlrh, nearly (5,000 Jews have been expelled from the KielY. They are mostly poor people; people of the work ing- class. Many of them are wander ing homeless and destitute on the outskirts of the* city. These proceedings, says the Timnn. are based on-'M. Stolvn'm's ?*ii*i»iilsi.r of .11)0(5. which allowed all Jews then in KiefV without legal right of residence to re main undisturbed. All .lews who can estab lish tho fact that they were illegally residing in Kieff in 1!)0(5 have been left' alone, but those who then had a legal right of residence are subjected on formal grounds to expul sion. Fresh batches of victims are marched out from the city each day.

Finland. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 30 July 1910
Finland. The crime has been consummated, and the assassination of the -nationality of Fin land is now an accomplished fact. Inter national' protests have been unavailing; the servile Russian Duma. — the base creation of Nicholas the Bloody and his fcllowcrimi nais— iias ngiu-neai leiny passcu we measure which destroys at one fell swoop the Consti tution, the autonomy and the popular liber ties of Finland, and places' the enlightened, free, and progressive people of that country under the iron heel of 'the savage, reaotioit ary,obscurantist despotism of the Romanoffs. No such -outrage upon humanity, no such crime against a whole people, has been per petrated since the partition of Poland. And in the case of Finland there have been none of the circumstances which served as an ex cuse in the' case of Poland, and have served the vita ends of despotism in innuine'rablc other instances. Finland was cjiiieL and law abiding; order was maintained; the. peace was unbroken. All classes were un...
