OURSELVES. [Newspaper Article] — People — 27 April 1901
OURSELVES. AFTER careful thought, it has been decided to reduce the size of Thb People to four pages demy folio. This step is made neces sary by financial circumstances, I accentuated by the expiration of a number of advt. contracts. The quantity of reading matter will not be in any way dim-nished, standing matter will be dispensed with, and a substantial saving will be affected in cost of paper and machining. Public Works Committee has de cided not to recommend the con struction of waterworks at Umber umberka Creak, Broken Hill. Does this mean Brokenhillites must still take the risks that follow the drinking of dirty stagnant water, because the construction of water works by the Government wonld in terfere with private profits ? Wear your red rosette on May Day. ' I painfully reflect that in almost everyone, if not in every one, of the greatest political controversies of the last fifty years, whether they affeoted the franchise, whether they affected religion, whether they affected...

Unquestionably Socialism aims at a revolution. It offera no apology therefor. Neither does it seek to dodge the point in the least. When told, as we are often told, that a physical clash must and will ensue, that enthroned Capital will no more abdicate than enthroned Landlord ism, ie. Feudalism, did. Socialism acknowledges the soft impeachment ; it frankly acknowledges that it means to go the logical length of the line, and that, the peaceful me thods of civilisation having been ex hausted and Capitalism having ap pealed to the ' last resort,' Social ism will unquestionably pu sue its foe on that field, too, and squelch Capitalism there. It is, according ly, in no dogeful vein that Socialists insist, however, tpon the fact that 'revolution' does not necessarily inolude force or bloodshed, and, furthermore, that not a few of the changes implied in Socialism are infinitely less 'subsereive* than oertain folks afiect to believe. The composition of what goes loosely by the name of 'Gove...

'Tis all in the Dignity cf Labor : By the collapse of a sand cuttiog at Randwick one man was killed, a id another narrowly escaped.

Rather spiteful, isn't it: ' iio invitations to the State concert will ' be issued to those who have refused to assist the oit zen's committee in the matter.' But it's one way of getting at people who are so beastly vnlgar aB to want payment for entertaining Royalty. ' British capitalists are spending £10,000,000 in steel and iron worka in Canada. The works will give employment to 10000 persons.' Provided always that the employ ment of the 10,000 persons (men, women, and children ?) will result in giving substantial profits to the syndicators.

About Common Property. [Newspaper Article] — People — 27 April 1901
Abont Common Property. Cain was the first man in the world who divided the common property in the eai-th by enclosures and landmarks. So says Josephna. When the workers of Australia vo e f-r their own class, we will be able to record the name of the last . man in this part of the world who pnt up a fence to divide the earth. The land must, and shall, be the property of the whole people. The machinery, tools of production must, and shall, be the property of the whole people. There can bi no trne freedom for 80 per cent of the people, unless that 80 per cent take possession of the land and tools. Vote yonrself into the ownership | at the Ballot Box.

Capitalist Development. [Newspaper Article] — People — 27 April 1901
Capitalist Development. The largest farm in America, and probably in the world, is situ ated in the sonth western part of Louiaana. It extends 100 miles north and west. It was purchased in I883 by a syndicate of northern capitalists, by whom it is still operated. At the time of its pur chase its 1.500.000 acres was a vast pasture for cattle belonging to a few dealers in that country. Now it is divided into pastures, stations for ranches existing, every six miles. The fencing is said to have cost aboub 500,000dols The land is best adapted for rice, sugar, corn and cotton. A tract, say half-a-mile wide, is taken, and an engine is placed on each side. The engines are portable and operate fonr ploughs. By this arrangement 8t- acres are gone over in a day with the labor of only three men There iB not a single draught horse on the entire place, if we except those used by the herders of cattle, of which 4 there are 16,000 head on the place. The Southern Pacific Railway runs 36 miles throug...

You hate a large party of the boodlers you name, You nate them but vote for them al ways the same. ^ You hate to be cramped in a financial way And you hate, giant frauds going on day by day, You curse in your soul the corruption 'you blame, You ourse it and vote for it always the same. You long for good laws and prosperous times, And you want to see boodlers sent up for their crimes. You want more reforms than we've space here, to name, But you never will vote for them always the same. You hope for a change and you pray for relief. And you swear you will bring all these -. schemers to grief, Then you march to the polls, put blockheads .to shame, And your vote goes for boodl...

Wku tfei ttflrken shall Wake In their Might. 1 .. When the workers shall wake in their might, ... All the workers of brain and of brawn ; When they stand for the strength, of the right.

How Long ? [Newspaper Article] — People — 4 May 1901
How Long ? j There is scarcely any doubt that news has been kept back which had it been published, would have diverted public attention from the royal pageants. Meanwhile, Lord Kitchener is utilising his enfoiced leisure bv burning and destroying homesteads and other Boer property, thus creating public feeling antag onistic to our countrv which assuredly we shall one day suffer from. We ask once more the question so often asked already — How long shall we bear all this patiently and submissively 1 — 'L ay light.'

The Glass Straggle. [Newspaper Article] — People — 4 May 1901
The Glass Straggle. ' We, as a class, have to wage a bitter war against the ruling class ; it is a war of extermination. The capitalist class, as a class, must be exterminated. Their class exist ence is incompatible with the emancipation of the proletariat, ihe liberty of humanity. For the pre sent this war finds its expression in the various political contests. And what do these contests mean ? They mean that we class - conscious workers endeavor to seize every public position that the proletarian ballot can capture, in order to use it as a point of vantage for pour ng the withering fire of Socialist criticism into the camp of the capi talist parties, and routing them from other positions of public power, not for the purpose of holding and ad mini: tering those positions for such slight benefits as may be incident ally gained by this means ; but for the pnrpose of using them as levers to overturn the whole of capitalist society. We know well that the capitalist parties will fight u...

In Capitalist America. [Newspaper Article] — People — 4 May 1901
In Capitalist America. Carroll D. Wright has been declaring that the condition of the American worker of to-day is 50 per cent, better than that of the worker of 50 years ago. The New York ' Daily People ' has this ti say about the condition of the American worker of to-day : To-day the average workingman uhh Hiupioymenc lor seven monens in the year, and he, statistically, receives 6dol. a week. To-day. with a population of 76,000.000, we have over two mil lions tramps, We have over 5,000.000 men out of work. We also have a few million Filipinos who can pluck the agile cocoanuc from the vine, and rejoice in a full evening dress of a pair of cotton suspenders. While he is doing it, he incidentally enters into competi tion with the worker in the United States. Then 75,000 children are sold by the orphan asylums every year. There is a well-organised traffic carried on in these unfortunates. Here in New York, and the same condition prevails in other large cities, the tenements districts...
