Death of Mr. Dougald Gillies. [Newspaper Article] — People — 18 May 1901
Death of Mr. Dongald Gillies. A little work, a littie play, To keep ua going— and so good day. A little warmth, a little light, Of love bestowing— and bo good night. A little fun to match the a arrow, Of each day'a growing— ana so good morrow. A little trust that wlier we cie We reap oor Bowing — and so good-bye. Du Matteiee. On Monday last-. 011 a green hillside ia . the little ' G of; tea-acker ' adja cent to tbe township of Tintenbar, the remains of onr old friend and comrade Dougald Gillies were laid W the lap of mother eat th. Great soggy-looking clonds chased each other across the sky, the branches of the tall irfes tha'', surrounded the little plot of cleared groand tossed and swayed in the wind, and the earth at onr feet was soared and. goddeu with nMnso-.nal rains. It was a dreary, dispiriting scene ; and yet, with the heavens above us, and the wild, free wind sweeping over hill and mead, there was a dignity and grandeur about it when one re membered that, ere long, each of...
Cause and Effect. [Newspaper Article] — People — 18 May 1901
Cause and Effect. Parson Boyce, of the 'N.8.W. Alliance,' in an electioneering manifesto which he is endeavoring to get into tbe press free of charge, says : ' Remembering the 2 ,000 c. nvictions for drunkenness every year, four-fifthB of them of distinct individuals, the great snm wafted in drink, and the manifold evils in other directions, on which I need not now enlarge, l as'- every one who loves his country to make this great, question (social option) the primary one. There is none so im portant before the State to-day ! May there n -w be stenuooB en deavors if a self-sacrificing kind to win a decided triumph for soberity, good order and righteousness. Thousands oi homes would be blessed by such a victory. A host of families, with a mnltitnde of suffering li tie children, wonld be made happier, and many lives would be saved from wretchedness and utter rnin. Or, to use the words ot' England s greatest poet, it would ' turn the winter of their disc ntent to glorions summer'' If t...

The Socialist Attitude Towards Races. [Newspaper Article] — People — 18 May 1901
The Socialist Attitude &nbsp; Towards Races. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; When the thoughts of great men fall into the hands of little men a mess is the inevitable result The Socialist or proletarian movement is international ; this is a profound thought dropped from master lips. Unable to understand this thought,, there are those who deny all na tional inherited feelings. Man, the &nbsp; best of us, the firmest in the humane principles of our great cause, still is man, and flesh, and apprehension. We are apt to love our own child ren, our own homes, just a little better than we love others' homes and children. I'll confess to you that, to me for instance, the word 'America' associated, as ' it is, with the earliest remembrances of my child hood, and woven in the nursery tales of the deeds of her sons, and of the surpassing beauty of her sceneries, awakens within me a feeling that no other country's name can awaken. We must count with t...

Capitalist Conspiracy In &nbsp; South Africa. &nbsp; Mb. Arthub Maekham, M.P. for Sotte, speaking in the House of ?fifmmnriB laflt month, commented strongly on the action of Mr. &nbsp; Chamberlain in putting on the &nbsp; South African Concessions Com mission a representative of 'Wern- &nbsp; her, Beit and Co., otherwise Eckstein, who he had no hesitation &nbsp; in describing as a gang of common thieves and swindlers. Mr. Mart &nbsp; in ban said he felt so strongly on the matter, and had such evidence in &nbsp; his possesaion, that he had no wish &nbsp; to shelter himself under his Parlia &nbsp; mentary privilege ; he was prepared to stand an action for libel. When tje Commission arrived at Cape town it was met with by Mr. Van Hulstein, the solicitor to Wernher, Beit and Co., who was appointed to represent the Imperial Govern &nbsp; ment at the sittings of the Com mission as adviser.

What Democracy is to Destroy. [Newspaper Article] — People — 18 May 1901
What Democracy is to Destroy. Always heretofore revolutions have meant merely some wider &nbsp; distribution of privilege, more top hats and togas, and that 10,000 instead of ten should mulct the multitude. But now at length it has been decided that the multi tude should not be mulcted any more, and this resolution, adhered to will turn the world around and set the foundations of society on &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; new and hitherto undiscovered bases. The bottom fact of social philosophy, ranging wide through literature, the amenities and courtesies, religion and fine arts, is an economic fact. The books and pictures, the etiquettes and rituals, are what they are, accord ing to the terms of the settlement of the bread question. And this, not because flesh is God, but be cause God is flesh, Now the broadest, the basic facts of the old world, which democracy comes to destroy, is that it has got its bread with injustice. The old...

Socialism is the philosophy of the Proletaire. / We (the upper class) will do anything for the poor man's relief — anything but get eff his back. — Tolstoi. Socialism is not the creation of a scholar's b ain ; it is not a thing called into beinc bv a roval nrrinr. by an Act of Parliament, or by tbe sword --f a general ; though eaoh of these, and all else that make up the life of the past have contributed to make Socialism. Socialism is ne cessity. Every shilling spent in the pro pagation of Socialism will bring in the long run a thousandfold re ward. A British soldier, under orders to proceed to South Africa, went mad and killed all hia children bnt one. The enormity of the crime in which he was ordered to participate probably turned hiav brain.

The Cry of the Dreamer. [Newspaper Article] — People — 25 May 1901
The Cry of the Dreamer, I am tired of planning and toiling In the crowded hives of men ; Heartweary of building and spoiling And spoiling and bnilding again. And I lo- g for the dear old river Where I dreamed my youth away, For a dreamer lives for ever And a toiler dies in a day. I am sick of the showy seeming Of a life that is half a lie : Of the faces lined with scheming In tbe throng that hurries by. From the sleepless thought's en deavor I would go where the children p'ay For a dreamer lives for ever And a thinker dies in a day. I can feel no pride, but pity For the burdens the rich endure ; There is nothing swoet in the city But t.he patient lives of the poor. Oh, the little brands so skilful, And the child mind choked with weeds, The daughter's heart grown wilful And tbo father's heart that bleeds. No, no ; from the street's rude bustle, From the trophies from mart and ' stage, I would fly to tbe wood's low ruBtle And the meadow's kindly page. Let us dream as of ydre by the ri...
His Reward. [Newspaper Article] — People — 25 May 1901
His Reward. A young Irish soldier wrote from his South African death-bed to his fianc& : ' British soldiers are dying here in thousands, not altogether with Boer skill, but with hunger and disease. Ear'y in the campaign i gotthecalfof my leg blown off. - till, I had to march 300 miles, sleeping out at night, living on two biscuits a day, with some coffee, and no milk or sugar, lhe blood was oozing out through my bandages. I pleaded to be sent to the hospital. I was going to 'be court-martialed, and told my rotten superiors it was to fight they wanted me, not to rest. On the day we captured gallant Gronje I lost three fingers on the right hand and had my left arm broken by a Boer bullet. Then 1 was huddled with thousands more into open trucks, and left in hospital, where mortification set in in my leg As for my band, it never was dressed by a physician The sufferings and moanings in this cattle shed, as wo called it, would be SIOKBNINQ T - B1LATE Suffice it to Say the smell f...

The Troth. Come, then, let us at least know what's the Truth. Let us not blink our eyes aad lay We did not understand : old aee or vouth Benumbed our strength and stole our tight away. It is a lie — j ust that, a lie — to deolare Tbnt Wages are the worth of Work. No ; they are what the Employer will* to spare To let the Employee sheer starvation shirk. They're the life-pittance competition leaves, The ieast for whioh brother'Il slay brother. He who the fruits of this hell-strife re- 1 / ceives, . I He is a thief, an assassin, and none other* It is a lie — just that, a lie— to declare That Bent's tbe interest on juBt gains. Bent's the thumb-screw that makes the worker t-hare With him who worked not the produce of his pains Bent's the wise tax the human tape-worm knows. The fat he takes ; the life -lean leaves. What is the Landlord, then, do we sap. pose? He is the model of assassin- thieves. What is the trick the employer then con trives f How play my lords '.heir brilliant roles ? T...

Deaths from Starvation. [Newspaper Article] — People — 25 May 1901
I Deaths from Starvation. The annual return relating to deaths from starvation within tbe County of London shows that 68 .persons have been certified by coroners' juries to have died from lack of food during the year of our Lord, 1900. All soits and conditions of people are included in the list, from Joseph Boyce, Borist aged 94. who died from ' exhaustion accelerated by self neglect and want of sufficient food,' down through Hannah . Corder, Btreet hawker, aged 86, who died from ' exposure and want,' right down to George King, aged five months, whose death is certified to have been'due to ' exhaustion from improper and insufficient food.' he return does not make pleasant reading That 68 human beings should die in the wealthiest city in tbe world from lack of bread and water would be a terrible fact in itself, but it is known that these cases certified by coroners' junes form but a very small proportion of the actual number of deaths due to starvation. Tear by year this return is pr...
KERNELS. [Newspaper Article] — People — 25 May 1901
KERNELS. Ex-M.L.A. Stephen (better known as the ' Botany Bunyip ' ) is going to' give Dacey a run for the State seat. In tha absence of a Socialist candidate, intelligent working-class voters will be disfranchised. ' Scotty the Winkler ' tells the ' Bulletin ' : The Tasmanian soldiers were an overload for the steamer on leaving Launceaton. and ...1 ? ? ? iuiod mauo u uttuuBSHry to leave 70 behind. So they were left behind for three days, ax their own EXFBN8B. Next pay-day (yesterday) those 70 got three days' pay less than the others, for being left behind. That's the way to encourage citizen soldiers. Cne of them told me this. He looked sober, and seemed to be a man who could tell the truth if he had it about him. The Socialist Labor Party is the fighting vanguard of the working-class army. Its life is contained in the strength of its activity. It can never retreat. ' Forward ' is its battle cry. Botha is credited by the capitalist press with having told his followers mnny fairy tal...
