Sydney's Fair. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 6 August 1910
Sydney's Fair. Tun rending room and main hall of tlio Chili was crowded with enthusiastic ladies on Saturday night. ? They were there in an swer to the committee's call for 40 ladies to assist at the Fair, Concert and Dance. It was worth while to hear the 'hum of voices discussing the costumes, followed by a si lence as of death as some serious problem presented itself, this in turn broken by a roar of laughter as the details of the stalls were being explained. One could only con clude that the Fair must bo a greater suc cess than any previous endeavor. After the meeting the ladies in their usual business like way got to work selling tickets, asking , for gifts, and collecting donations.

That there have always been rich and poor, propertied and property less, is one of the arguments of the nntf-Socinlist. To discover whether this statement is correct or not we have got to scan the history of the past. It is, therefore, with the intention of proving how fallacious this asser tion is, and also of proving that So cialism is the logical outcome of our industrial system, that I take up my pen. I shall endeavor to briefly and clearly outline the path traversed by humanity in the long march from savagery to civilisation. That the spe cial creation story of the Bible is un scientific and untrue is generally ad mitted by the scientific world; few who reflect on the rise of man now believe that he came into the world knowing how to provide food, clothes, weapons, and housing ac commodation after the fashion of modern man. When or how man came into the...
THINGS AN ARMY CANNOT DO. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 6 August 1910
THINGS AN ARMY CANNOT DO. Later in the debate Lord Crewc, replying for the Govern ment, fully recognised that there are some things which an army cannot be'expected to do. He' gave as an example something that occurred during the agitation for the Reform Bill of :1832. A great hiarclv of men was planned from Birmingham to London, which was to culminate in a colossal meeting on Hampstcad Heath, to insist on the passing of the Bill. The Scots Greys were then at Birmingham, and they received the order to rough-sharpen their swords. A letter was* written to the Duke of Wellington, stating that while the Greys would do their duty if outrages on property were committed, they would not draw sword or trigger on a deliberate public meeting, or kill the people of Birmingham for attempting to leave their town with a petition for London. SACREDNESS OF CONSCIENCE. Well then: we have it on the highest authority that the soldier's conscience is sacred; that there are things which no human being, a...
Lord Roberts on Conscience. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 6 August 1910
Lord Roberts on Conscience. Few things are mure surprising and disconcerting, in the current discussion of Compulsory Military Service, than the almost total disregard of what for many of us is the root of the matter: that to apply legal compulsion means to infringe freedom of con science, and to enter on what is virtually a course of religious persecution. CONSCIENCE IGNORED. Even in the Liberal press, while every kind of argument, military, political, industrial, is urged against Conscription, the interference with liberty of conscience is scarcely ever, mentioned. The average Member of Parliament hardly seems to recognise the existence, still less to understand the meaning of the deep moral repugnance to taking part in war which, to my certain knowledge, is widely felt by many of the very best of our people. 'The Quakers— oh yes, of course, we know they object to war, but they are cranks, and they only amount to a handful, who can easily be exempted if necessary, or put to some a...
S.F.A. News & Notes. SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 6 August 1910
| S.F.A. News & Notes. I SOUTH AUSTRALIA. HY II. S. CI.AItK'IC. In our work of endeavoring to educate the workers to understand their true economic position and to combine in one classcon scious industrial organization, we in Ade laide are ably assisted by the official head of sectional unionism in this State, the Trades and Labor Council, and also by the mis called Labor Government, who are continu ally demonstrating to the workers how ut terly useless their methods are. Recently the Trades and Labor Council requested the Premier to obtain from Czar Goodman of the Tramway Trust a substantiation of the charges he (Goodman) had made against ex-niotorman Lloyd, who had been sum marily dismissed from the service, or a with drawal of the same. At the last meeting of the Council a reply was received from the Premier staling that the trouble lay between Goodman and Lloyd, and as far as he (the Premier) could learn he was powerless to do anything in the matter. The Council ac cepte...

Joseph McCabe. An Open Letter to Cardinal Moran. NY II. K. HOLLAND. ) oui! Mminknvk,— The Revolutionary Social ists of Australasia were deeply interested in the recent, visit of Mr. McCabc; not because he happened to bean ex-priest of the Church of Rome; but, first, because he. came as the apostle of Science and the preacher of that Historic Materialism on which' all Socialist Philosophy rests; and, secondly, because he came to us fearlessly proclaiming his accep tance.:of all that the Revolutionary Socialists of Australasia, in common with the World's Socialist movement, -sti' -id for, v:\, the So cialisation of all the means of wealth pro duction ; and, thm'.ly, because he came to us as' the vindicator o!' Ferrer, and the historian to whom belongs the honor of having given to the world 'an unchallenged record of Fer rer's glorious life and work, and a scathing exposure of the murderous combine ofChureh and State that, hating Ferrer as Evil hates Light, and fearing the educational ...

Denmark. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 13 August 1910
Denmark. Copenhagen Socialists made use of the phonograph as a .slump speaker during a re cent election campaign. It was deaf to all interjections, and talked down all the row of Danish Fat. The United Woodworkers complain that two their members have been victimised for giving evidence against their employers be fore the Wanes Board. Sydney Labor Coun cil has decided to send a letter to the em ployers about the matter! That's about' the full measure of protection that sectionalism can give to the workers when they're victim ised. A demand for the immediate rein statcment of the victims, to be followed by the calling out of ALL the firm's employees in the case of refusal, would be the method of an ciTectively-organised union. The United .Laborers of South Australia have given some valuable object lessons ' in this direction quite recently. But why is the name of the victimising (inn with held ? The master minds of all nations, in all ages, have sprung into alllucnt multitude from the...

Spain. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 13 August 1910
Spain. A great Catholic demonstration,' alleged to have been organised from the Vatican, which was to have been held at San Sebastian on Sunday, was abandoned. The Spanish Cabinet has approved of a bill providing for compulsory -military service in the case of all Spaniards. I lie Church and .State arc engaged in a fierce struggle in Spain — a struggle in which great economic interests arc likely to be in volved, and which' may not only end with the dethronement of the Church, but possi bly with the loss of King Alfonso's billet as well. A delegation of Republican deputies visited the President of the Council and asked him to present to the Chamber an extended pro ject of amnesty, specially applicable to all the Spaniards who were expelled from Bar celona last July. -M.

The Tuesday following the strike of the 'men on t.hi-. ?TsliWt.ori nxnri track, Peake and Horn burg asked questions in Parliament re the exclusion of the press from the interview which Verran had with the representatives of the men, and also re a report of the men's meeting that appeared in the press. After the Premier had an swered them, Peake moved the adjournment of the House to draw attention to the mat ter, and he rated the Premier for allowing the. men l.o minutes of the taxpayers' time. The Premier, in a lengthy reply of an apolo getic nature, stated that the work would only last another three weeks, and that his action must not be taken as a precedent, and he incident...
Germany. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 13 August 1910
Germany. The Court of Appeal refused to quash the sentence of one month's imprisonment to which the editor of Vorwarlx was condemned in consequence of the 'suffrage promenade' on March (i. The Court, indeed, decided that the verdict was untenable in so far as it charged Barth with having organised the procession and open air meeting. But still the sentence must be upheld, as it was not only. pronounced on accountof this, butalso for the crime of inciting to disobedience against the law of association. Colonel Gaedkc, a well-known German writer, declares that Germany is marching to economic ruin and war through refusing to consider the limitation of armaments.
