The Passing Show. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 13 August 1910
The Passing Show. COXIJUCTKJ) BV OTCS. Mr. McGowkn admits tliiit he doesn't com plain about Gregory Wade stealing his po litical clotlies — says it's ai compliment. ... ' Once people thought the Ltiborites were wild theorists,' said Mr. McGowcn; 'now they took their ideas.' That's because the economic interests back ot each is the same. A decent party finding that any part of its policy was sutliciently fraudulent to invite the theft of it by Leg-Irons Wade would lose no time in doing the Judas trick .with, a' stout piece of rope. Soobio, M,L.A., toid a Phillip electorate , audience the other night: 'Wade has bor rowed the Labor Party's garments, and is wearing them to-day, )m//«Z and unashamed.' Some people thought Mr. Soobie had made si bull, and several daily papers hastened; to joke about the mixture of his metaphor. But there was no bull, and the. metaphor was alright.

MAGDALENE: HER BUSINESS. ? . + _._ — She walks in tlm shady by-ways, Or by the city square; The groat earth's rustless highways ' Have known her everywhere; A won uui no man pities, Watching within the night, The victim of the cities She preys upon their might. She loiters in the alley, And scans the p;uwmg tltronjr; She answers jest and sally , When drunkards pass along; : But staring grimly after She curses in the shade Their ribaldry and laughter, And tremble;!, half afraid. Oh, you who prate of kindness And His loud praises fcing, lia/.e when you shed your blindm.* On this poor, wounded tiling; This form tlnit lurks half-crouching I-y Virtue's gates hard-slammed — This woman tilinij/x slouching Among the nliriujx dimmed!

Glorifying a Murderer. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 13 August 1910
Glorifying a Murderer. ]JV II. K. IIOIiliAXI). Sydnkv Labor Council has done some queer tilings in its day. Over a, year ago, the International Socialists asked that the Council should hear a lec ture from ]\Ir. Scott Bennett on 'In- dustrial Unionism.' The request was turned down for the one and only reason that the International Socialists were opposed to the middle class Labor Party. Only the other day, a sim ilar request from the I. W. W. Club met with the same fate. But, while the Council won't hear work ing-class lecturers on working-class subjects, it joyfully opens its doors to lecturers from the Master Class. One such is Professor David, and recently he delivered a lecture on 'Mexico ' ' to the Council delegates. A daily paper reports that Professor David paid a high tribute to the ability of President Diaz. ' 'He said that during his 30 years' rule the President had lifted Mexico from an ordinary tur bulent Central American Republic to a high position amongst the world's n...

International Notes. Germany. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 13 August 1910
International Notes. Germany. J. B. 'Askew writes in London Juxlicc, of July '2: To show the fright of the bour geoisie on account of the successes of the Social-Democracy an election in the Wur teniberg constituency of Canstatt was at first put off till the end of August on the plea that the agricultural workers and the pea sants could not vote before on account or the harvest. This decision to delay the election aroused such a storm that the Wurtomberg Government has now discovered that the peasants will be able to vote all the same if the election comes in July; and they point out at the same time that this will put an end to the great and dangerous excitement . which is being aroused by the election in that constituency. At the |last election in this constituency the National Liberal won with JS, 787, as against 15.4SS for the Social ist. It will be interesting to see how the election goes. I may say Canstatt, which lies quite close to Stuttgart, was the place of the great inter...
LIFE BATTLES. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 13 August 1910
LIFE'S BATTLES. Some batt'e.s we arc called to tight With comrades cheering on, With certain victory in sight; , But sonic, we light — alone; And though the one we cannot share Is oft the hardest fight, A martyr's courage makes as dare When fighting for the right. When traitors turn and cowards flee The forces of the strong, And leave us with tin- enemy To fight a cruel wrong, The. thought that fire makes iron steel, That hard blows make it bright, Slakes heroes of us when we feel Were fighting for the right. AVhen, too, lit length the ' light that failed ' Leaves desolate life's track, A star thought by the mind unveiled Will win our courage back, 'Twill bring a glow into the cheek, And make our dull eyes bright, To know that though oppressed and weak We fought hard for the right? — Locisa Lawso.v.

The Slaughtermen's Strike. Will Wade leg-iron the Bosses ? ?Foit nearly -lU years tlio .slaughtermen at Glebe Island have been paid weekly wages. The employers recently determined to sub stitute piece-work rates, and lixctl these at 2!-s per 100 for sheep, whereas in the coun try the price is 25s per 100.

Towards Human Freedom. Chattel Slavery. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 13 August 1910
Towards Human Freedom. BY. .!. It. W I I.SOX. Chattel Slavery. When we read of undent Egypt, most of us can hardly realize that it was a slave-owning empire, and that the Pyramids, which make travellers pause and wonder, and which were built centuries ago, and have seen the rise and tall ot empires, were built by the labor of slaves extending over many centuries. Students are also acquainted with ?the slave civilisation of Greece and Rome, of the; wondrous work done by. the armies of slaves under the di rection of men of genius who were themselves slaves, and we are re minded that Homer, the great poet of antiquity, and ^Esop, the famous fabulist, were both slaves, while the Roman roads — traces of which still ? exist in Britain and on the continent — were the work of the slaves of the Roman Empire. The slave civilisation lasting inany centures, Europe came to be divided into two classes — Freemen and Slaves, the slaves of the chattel slave period, like the wage-slaves of the twenti...
