Toward the Light. [Newspaper Article] — People — 4 May 1901

Toward the Light. This old gray world is weary of the struggle and the strife, - The shell-torn fields of battle, and the waste of human life ; And the trembles to her centre at the bugles' brassy blare, She ahuddor* when the thunder of the cannon thrills the air. This o'.d grey world is weary of th e arro gance of might, Of wealth that binds men captive, and knowa no law of Bight, Of ini'iliona of her children born to miaery and toil — Bobbed by deeda and charters of their birthright to the aoil, This old gray world is weary of tbe igno* ranee that rules, That robs mankind of libsrty and makes men helpless, tools* She ia weary of intolerance, the bigotry that binda Ihe feet of searching Science, and the exes of Season blind*. But the list'ner at the portil of the new born Century hears A whisper' and a premise come dirfting ' down the years — The whisper of a promise— a prophesy of peace, W&en men shall live as brothers, and war's red wrath shall cease. The dreamer looks ia...

What We Want. [Newspaper Article] — People — 4 May 1901

What We Want. The Socialist demands concen trated and co-operative labor, the means of production, i.e., the capi tal, being public and collective property. Te-day we have collec tive labor and private ownership. This antagonism between the me thod of production and the system of ownership blights both produc tion and distribution. If the ma chinery of production is owned as collectively by the people as pro duction has to be carried on, then production wonld be many times larger, and, aB a result of the sys tem ot collective ownership,' distri- bution would be just. That's Socialism, and thai's what Socialists want.

A World Awakening. [Newspaper Article] — People — 4 May 1901

A \y0ri4 flwakeplng. 1 ' (6r Mat Dat.) ' Come with me again, said the Spirit of Inquiry, and I will show you a world awakening.' ' Is it like the world demented ?' said I. 'It is the same,' said he; 'come,' And again I followed him along the path of history ; again I saw the splendors of past civilisations ; strain I looked on Babylon the mighty and Ephesus the ancient, bui this time I caBt no longing lin gering looks behind ; the pomp of Rome, the learning of Athens, the mystery of the sphinx's countenance, could not now thrill me like the prospect of viewing a world de mented but awakening to a realisa tion of a better state. Again we came into the fierce light that beats upon the industrial strife of this toiling world ; the. fierce conflict for existence ; the clang of mighty machines; the Bweat and hurry of human mites in their servitude. Again I saw the splendid palaces, the luxurious ap pointments and pampered ease of the few, and the crowded noisome denB, the fevered, starvi...

Smash the System. [Newspaper Article] — People — 4 May 1901

Smash the System. It matters not, so long as the capitalist system prevails, how muoh (irodnction increases, aB far as we workingmen are conoerned. The fleecers of oor class get all the increase ; we don't get any of it, on the cou rary. onr thare, absolute and relative, becomes ever smaller. The thing now to do is to throw off our backs the capitalist leeches, who alone grow fatter by our in ? aroused production. The thing to now is to smash the Capitalist System with the 8.L.P. ballot, and rear the Socialist Republic.

Exchange and Surplus Values. [Newspaper Article] — People — 11 May 1901

Exchange and Surplus Values. All commodities have two values : one of their exchange-value, de terminable by the amonnt of necessary social labor crystallised in their production ; the other is their ntility. Thus, the exchange value of a coat may be £1, its use-value however, is something apart from tbat ; its use- value lies, say, in its quality to give warmth ; a loaf of bread may have for iM exchange value 2£d ; its use-value, however, is not measurable in money ; its nse-value consists in its quality to still hunger. So, likewise, has the commodity labor- power both an exchange and a nse-valuo. Its ex change value depends upon tie same condition on which depends the exchange value of a coat and a loaf ; its use-value, however, that which gives it utility and character — tbe same as heat with the coat, or food' with th - loaf — is that it YIELDS MORE WEALTH THAN ITS EX CHANGE-VALUE amounts to more than it costs. The c jai's UBe-valae is to give heat ; the loaf '« to still hnnger...

Imperial America. [Newspaper Article] — People — 11 May 1901

Imperial America. w ? Says the 'S.M. '.' New York correspondent : — President Hadley, of Yale College— curiously enongh, the college, by choice, of millionaires — is in a peck of trouble because he said recently in a casual speech that unless the ' trusts ' were curbed, we' should degenerate in 25 years into an empire. Of course, he did not mean an emperor, with sceptre and crown, but his enemies have chosen to think he did. and that comes to much the same-thing. The fact is, perhaps, that we are even bow living under Im perial institutions, for what else but an emperor is a ' boss ' ? The American boss, howerer, must be a be evolent despot ; he is forthwith deposed if his supporters think that somebody else will do appreciably better. . . ? But if I mpe ialism means now, as it did in the far-off time when the world was born, the arbitrary leadership of the man fit to rule, then his prediction is in great part already fulfilled. Personal rule is now disguised under the name of ' the...

At the Police Court there to-day, John Kennealy (65), a wood carter, was charged with assaulting his own daughter, aged 16|' years. The familv. consisting nf fchn fni-har twe daughters and three sons, live in a two-roomed House at Native Creek, beyond Bendipo.

The case against John Kennealy was dismissed, and the girls were charged with being neglected children.

Alle Samee Melican Man. [Newspaper Article] — People — 11 May 1901

Alle Samee Melican Man. It is not often that a labor strike occurs in China, but when it does the employer has a most expediti ous way of settling matters. A strike which occurred in Canton recently was settled by the em ployer in two hours. It occurred in a ' sum pan,' or native boat building establishment, where about eighty men were employed. They received the liber a re mnneration of twenty cents per day working from daylight in the morning until sunset. Even on this scanty pittance some of them actually saved money and started establishments of their own, At the time the strike took place rice, their staple article of ?' chow,'* be came very dear ; consequent'y the boat builders asked for a rai«e of five cents a day. The employer objected and at once laid tho cane before the mandarin. The em« p oyees in the meantime refused to work After hearing what the employer had to say, the mandarin at once gave him the authority to shoot all those who refused to work.

The men who speak for Trades Unionism in this S ate should make an effort to overcome their own ig norance, and fit themselves to fight for juefcer and more humane condi tions. Knowledge is power, and knowledge is requisite if the worker is ever to improve his position. Mere declamation and denunciation of employers is waste of energy. The Public Library is open and free toalL So long as the working class sub mit to a kingdom of hell on earth, the capitalists are willing to take ohances on squeezing into the kingdom of heaven. The answer of Socialism to the capitalist is that society can do withont him jnst as society now does without the slav owner and the feudal lord, both of which were formerly regarded as necessary to the wel being and even the very existence of society. — Pbof.

The Trust. [Newspaper Article] — People — 11 May 1901

The Trust. The Trust is not a matter of 'conscience,* it is not a psychic malady. Fact is, it i 4 no malady at all, any more than the in conveniences under which a woman, big with child, may suffer, can be said to be a malady ; — least of all a malady that needs ' conscience treatment.' The Trust is a hard evolutionary fact.. It ia, in the economic- political development of the land, the evolutionary climax that rends the veil 1 f the economic and the the/eon grafted political illusions with regard to the private system of ownership in the means of production. Furnished with the material facts and with that in tellectual rectitude that will not re coil before the inevitable conclusions, howevor much these may fail to chime in with one's habits of thought, the system of private ownership in the tools of produc tion could be and was forseen tcj be purely transitory. It could be and was foreseen that, with the dtv* lop ment of the tools, the ills inherent in such a system of ownership ...
