Gee Whizz! [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 20 August 1910
Gee Whizz! I!Y II. 10. HOLLAND. In last week's issue of this paper we printed some utterances of Mr. Alban Clcc (of the. Meat Preserving Co.) and other eminent pur veyors of dead meat. Air. C-ee practically declared that he would sec that no fresh meat reached Sydney from his establishment.that he would absolutely refuse to employ any ot the Glebe Island strikers— in other words, he would pledge himself to blacklist and boycott them; lie wouldn't even let them work for nothing! This same Air. Gee has onc-J more torn himself aw-.iy from the grcasiness of his meat works and the weird fearsoinencss of the canned contraptions with which ho chases the reluctant com ol the Australian working class, in order that he might tell the Daily Telajraph that he has 'a rod in pickle' for the unionists, and that something sensa tional will be heard to-morrow morning. (This article is written on Tuesday, and will be in print before Mr. (.lee's sensation transpires.) It should be remembered that this...

John Paterson: Martyr and Teacher. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 20 August 1910
John Paterson: Martyr and Teacher. HY II. 1-. DKNKOIil). Mu. J. Pathksox, striko-bruakcr, and the pride and joy of tlio scab .section of the Labor Party, once again enters the arena, and makes his bow before the working-class.. This time it is not as a strikebreak er. This man in his time has played many parts. To-day he poses as a Martyr and a Teacher, who has been persecuted and reviled for his loyalty to the capitalist class — for be ing a faithful tool of Capitalism, and a defender of capitalist administration and law. Some time ago readers will remember, this cheerful twister was called upon to resign from his posi tion as representative of the Newcas tle coal miners on the Wages .Board, a position he held without the con sent of the Miners' Union, the coal miners being disgusted with his 're- presentation.' Paterson loves posi tion above all else, ami he was mad at being asked to resign. The result was that he howled to the daily pa pers that he was being deposed 'by disconten...

Broken Hill. An important debate is to take place at liourku Ward P.L.L. next Friday, the sub ject 1 icing ' The platform of the Labor Par ly versus that of the S F.A.' Xulty and Due are expected to take the Labor Party side, while it is likely that Vic. Coiran and O'linilly will defen.l the principles of the S.F.A. TlIK IXTIOIiXATIONAL SOCIALIST is jlist to hand, and the issue is splendid. The 'Open Letter to Cardinal Moran ' is bril liant — one of the best we have ever read, and it would be a good thing if the Interna tional!- could print thousands of it for circu lation. li'ecogniscd heads of the churches here are circulating statements concerning Ferrer and McCabu that can't be adequately described. ?'

S.F.A. News &. Notes. I Queensland. An Intenii'.tional Socialist writes from Chil' d.Ts: — ''There is little or no organization. in this, district. The ' agreement ' reigns su preme. As many as half-H-dozon different iigreei. lents are in force on the one job. The workers are split up into numerous little groups, each with its own petty interests to servo, and each, bound to the boss by its own particular color of papor-cliain — fetters not finite so clumsy as those employed by Gre gory Wade, but .rather more elective, be cause more subtle. A union with never a suspicion of class-consciousness, with its officials industriously engaged in doing no thing, and doing il badly, too; with ib- ap palling incohesiveness, and consequent in conse(|uen- e! Capital splendidly organised, elVective and conquering. A small army of ui employed swi.rming about the district, liunjry to sell the only bodies they possess, hit seemingly do not wan';, for things they do want, but do not possess. ...

Auckland or he transferred to Wellington ? Questions of tl'Js kind are to the fore, but can scarcely he said to be of vital importance to the workers. The daily press, however, devotes, as usual, a vast amount of space to the unimportant, and thus seeks to persuade the wage .slaves that, such questions as the above are of vital im portance to them. The trades unions have just concluded their annual con Terence, held this year in Auckland. A semi-Socialist resolution .._ or objective was adopted that is already being denounced by the press and politicians. The congress cannot be described as being at all sensational, or, indeed, wholly satisfactory from the Socialist point of view. Hut the rank and file will 'arrive,' nevertheless. As a result of Joseph McCabe's visit to this city there has been a good deal of correspon de...

Philosophy of Socialism Destructive Forces in Present Society. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 20 August 1910
Philosophy of Socialism — -♦? - - l!Y A. M. SIMON*. Destructive Forces in Present Society. With ix this economic stage and con sequent social development as within its predecessors lies the germ of its destruction and the foundation of an other order. Its economic organisa tion has developed the class that is to bring about its overthrow and to erect upon its foundation a society without economic classes. This coming rul ing class of which all will be mem bers is the present laboring class, the despised proletariat, the actual pro ducers with hand and 'with brain. At the close of the last century this class had just been driven in from t!ie fields by inclosures and out from the guilds by confiscations and, inter- 1 . mil upheavals. Deprived of the legal and customary protection that had hedged them about in their old rela tions, they were, almost at a single stroke transformed from individual producers into units of productive force, saleable upon a free labor mar ket. Their tools w...

South Australia. : I'.V it.s.r. :! During the last week the workers in j S.A. have further demonstrated the benefits to be do.'ivcd when thev take direct action and show their solidarity. On Monday last the Government road men employed .u. at Fowler's l-:iy downed tools and demanded : a minimum wage of Ns per day. The men were members of the I'.L.l*., and owing to the vigilance of the officials of the union, no men were sent up from the Labor Bureau or , any other source in Adelaide. After a few days strike the men's terms were conceded, ! and they returned to work. On Monday; last To men employed by the railway de partment at Gepp's Cross (near Adelaide) ceased work owing to the alleged bullying of ! a kind and kerristian foreman who sought to alter the hours of work fixed by the de partment (and to which the men had , agreed) so that lie could get 'io ''-hours work per week out of the machinery :used.

Pars from Other Papers. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 27 August 1910
Pars from Other Papers. Thk iron law of wages is much the sau:e as the rule of gold. Idleness is a crime when committed 'by a.' poor man. It is a virtue in the rich. A man may be respectable after he gets rich, but 'it is hard to.be decent first and then get rich. Why should a capitalist take what many laborers make ? That is the whole idea be hind Socialism. that the hearts of the masters 'and the heads of the Workers are made .of that article. Giving a Christinas dinner to the man who has been robbed does not square the matter. The. only thing that will fix it is to stop the roblicry. The capitalist system gives to the capi talist an ever-swelling stream of profits, and to the worker an ever-increasing mea sure of misery and degradation. The laborer's power of production is so great that a small minority serves' to 'sup- ply all the riotous luxuries of the ruling class. So it is that when these few have been selected from the great army of labor the rc*t are left to rot and starve...

Philosophy of Socialism — -♦- I!Y A. M. SIMONS. How the Change will be Brought About. Thk direction of the coining change ? being determined, the next vital question is as to the mannerin which it shall be brought about. On this point there is no room for. theories, 1 .schemes, plans or Utopias.

The wage system wiped out personal rela tions between employer and em ployees, and threw the laborers upon their own resources, develop ing independence, self-reliance and initiative. All this aroused in the laborers a consciousness of their class interests, relations and common brotherhood. At first this feeling was confined to trade lines, and the eft'ovs of the workers limited to endeavors to se cure better bargai...
