Labor takes no Alms. [Newspaper Article] — People — 4 May 1901
Labor takes no Alms. ? ▲ ? : ? * Andrew Caenegie, the Home stead killer of men, recently gavel 1000 dollars to the '' Labor organi sations that are rebuilding the Brooklyn Labor Lyceum,' and thereby ''made his peace with or ganised labor.' The official organ of the So cialist Labor Party, speaking in condemnation of the people who ac cepted the donation, declared : ' Labor can never make its peace with the Capitalist. No gift is there in the giving of a Carnegie to bay off the unflagging hostility for him in the campt of the Working Class. Labor will suspend hostili ties against Carnegie only when he, together with his class, has been totally overthrown ; when the in struments of production owned by them have been restored to the peo ple ; when he and his have gone to work and haveccased to pilfer their living from the toilers. Labor takes no alms. Labor is no scurvy dog that can be bought off with a sop.'
IN OTHER LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — People — 4 May 1901
IN OTHER LANDS. Socialist* in Saxony, Germany, won 279 seats in 149 cities and towns in a recent election. Socialists in Bulgaria have elected three members to Parliament. Fear not to be troublesome. All exponents of new ideas are. The jury in an English case, in which a train ran into a bus at a level crossing and killed two men, severely censured the railway company. % They thought that the gatekeepers had too heavy duties imposed on them, and that sufficient precautions were not takeYi to protect the publio. No di rectors will, however, be hanged. American Socialist Labor Party numbers 250 Sections, with member ship in good standing of 4,000.

Death of Mr. D. Gillies. [Newspaper Article] — People — 4 May 1901
Death of Mr. D. Gillies. Just as we go to press, we learn of the death of Mr. D. Gillies, sen., of Tintenbar — a good com rade and a brave worker for the Socialist movement. For nearly two years Mr. Gillies had been confined to his bed with an attack of paralysis, and his death was not unexpected. He was C3 years of age. We are sure every mem ber of the Australian Socialisb League and every reader of The PE0PL3 will sympathise deeply with Mrs. Gillies and the bereaved family, nearly all of whom are active members of the Socialist movement. Miss A. GillieB, who was to have represented Richmond River branch on the Conference, will not. now be able to attend.
Key Note. [Newspaper Article] — People — 4 May 1901
Key Note. The Socialist Labor Party is forged Id the furnace of tbe Ulass Struggle for the Class 8truggle. It is made for combat. Its powers can come into play only in the storm and stress of conflict. It is now, as nothing unto what it yet will be, until, the crisis, with which to cope it was born, shall have been reached and dominated by it to a successful issue— the overthrow of the system of Wage-Slavery.

Factories Legislation. [Newspaper Article] — People — 4 May 1901
Factories Legislation. Higgins, M P., Victorian pseudo democrat, proposes that State Leg islatures shall relegate their power to deal with this subject to the Federal Parliament. The proposal must be oppostd ; it simply means that so far as N.S.W. is concerned, there would be no advance on our antedeluvian factory legislation for many years to come, while it might have the effect of throwing back the position gained by workers in other States that is superior to ours. Tub People claims that by efficient factory legislation the lot of the worker under capitalism can be made a little more bearable, and for that reason it must be kept out of the hands of a conservative Federal Parliament, and dealt with in the more easily democratised State legislatures. In N.S.W. is wanted some of the best features of Victorian factory legislation, notably the institution ot the minimum wage in all callings (as well as a legalised Eight Hours Day). What is wanted is that other State legis latures be i...
MAY DAY, 1901. [Newspaper Article] — People — 4 May 1901
May DHY, 1901. This week beholds the. dawning of the first May Day of the Twentieth Century - the Socialist Century. And to-morrow (Sunday) the Aus t-alkm Socialist League will hold its yearly Demonstration and repeat its clear-voiced demands for the organi sation of the workers on class lines for the purpose of wresting the control of the political machinery from the non-working — the capita list — class. The men and women who have spoken for and who have organised the demon strations of the years that are past —the men and women who speak for and who have organised this year's demonstration — are ' the pioneers of the intelligent working class movement, in thiB colony. Standing at the Century's dawning, and looking hack over the work of the past, despite failures and disap pointments, and the slow grinding of the wheels of justice, they may, and they do, truly claim that their movement — the movement of the wealthless workers — has been at tended with a very large measure of succe...
A Happy People. [Newspaper Article] — People — 4 May 1901
A Happy People. It is, trnly, a nice little income that the King will step into. The toiling millions must feel a glow of pride to think that no matter how their rents may be raised at the bidding of unscrupulous house owners, no matter how much extra they may have to pay for coals, tea, sngar, and other necessaries of life, no matter hnar Dnanu Vi nrrr irregular, their employment may become, his gracious Majesty will be all right, 'this will be a great I comfort to them ia their struggle for daily bread. This will .buoy them up as they go from place to place seeking the work which is denied them ; contentment will re- 1 place their complainings, and they will be gratified to think they have a noble and virtuous monarch well provided for, a number of million aires, capitalists, landlords, house owners and State dignitaries beyond the reach of want, and a loyal and servile Houbo of people's represen tatives to watch carefully that any attack on the priviliges of these gentry is quick...
Government by Gang. [Newspaper Article] — People — 4 May 1901
Government by Gang. t Time was when England bad government by king, then it had government by nobles, later came government by ministers, later still government by party, and now we latest of birth, ' when chaotioal mixture has approached to a fixture' ar6 enjoying government by gang. The beauty of this form of adminis tration is that it calls for no prin ciples, no character, no honour, and li+tle or no ability. Everybody admits that. Lord Salisbury him self, the head of odb band, a family group of very sinister repute, openly deplores that no man of capaoity will join his particular gang. How could he P It is choked up with his sons and nephews and sons-in-law who pos sess all the arrogance of their 'boss' without a vestige of his erstwhile capacity. None the less the Cecil gang, like the hooligan gangs of south-east and north-west London, preys upon everything and everybody except where its depre dations are limited but not checked br another gang of similar ac quisitive instinct...

GLEANINGS. I I- Xha portly, well dressed gentleman, those speciality was mortgages, rose to »ddresa the meeting of the unem ployed.

A Middle-class Squeal. [Newspaper Article] — People — 4 May 1901
A Middle-class Squeal. The action of British combined coal -owners in charging excessive prices for coal is causing some of the middle-class people (whose material interests are being affected) to squeal. A Birmingham manu facturer recently wrote to a local paper complaining of ' the irjury done to his trade and the country generally ' by such ' unscrupulous combinations' as that which exists in the coal trade, and advooating that steps shonld be taken by legis lation to control that particular trade. The 'Labor Leader' is simple enough to say that ' it is a hopeful sign when capitalists begin to advooate Sooialism for one trade in order to protect others, and it shows that economic developments are tending irresistibly in the direc tion of the goal to which we are looking forward.' Now, doesn't it rather show that the capitalist is an up-to-date individual who wants Lis class committee of management — the Government — to he given the power to see that his material inte rests are co...

NOTHING A WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — People — 4 May 1901
NOTHING A WEEK. The reserved decision in the case against Eden George, photographer, for employing a girl without paying wages, contrary to the provisions of the law, was delivered to-day in the District Court. The defence waa that the girl paid to be taught retouching, and could do as she liked. She was a , learner, not an employee. Owing to a doubt the magistrate dismissed the case. Eden George was proceeded against later for having paid no wages to Roslyn Robin, an alleged employee, in February. The prosecutors alleged that the girl Had worked in the ordi nary way, and received no payment. Defendant and witnesses sarore that the girl was merely allowed to practise retouching, and at the time of the al leged breaches of the statute was a pupil. The magistrate considered the crse for the prosecution sustained, and inflicted fines aggregating £3, with £3 18s costs. A stay of proceedings was allowed. — Daily paper. .

The Potato Man's Manifesto. [Newspaper Article] — People — 4 May 1901
The Potato Man's Mani» festo. Several columns of the daily press are necessary to contain the promises in this document. Most of it consists of vague statements as to the desirability of a number of things, in this respect being a fac-simile of all documents emanat ing from capitalist Governments. One or two of the items it is worth while to give prominence to, while others require severe scrutiny. For instance : WORKMAN'S HOLDINGS. With tho - bject of giving the working classes an opportunity of obtaining homes for themselves, we will in the vicinity of large centres of population, set apart a fair ar?a of Crown landa to be let in building bloeke, varying in size from an acre to twenty acres a -id let at a rental of five per cent, upon the value, upon a long tenure. Th's proposal in the main is a good one, and eventnally will be abso lutely necessary in the interests of the wage-earner.
