Socialism and Liquor Question [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 17 September 1910
Socialism and Liquor Question r.v tiik slavi:. Tiik liquor question is essentially an economic problem. It is an integral part of the great problem of the just distribution of wealth, and there is no solution outside the solution of the great general social question. That drunkenness has certain defi nite economic causes is not difficult to uemonstrate. The poor man or woman, whose earnings are insuffi cient, to provide satisfactory food or clothing, who tries to cheat outraged nature by attempting to draw strength from the use of al coholic stimulants, is a victim of capitalist society. The laborer who fiees from his squalid home to seek light, warmth, andcompanionshipjn the hotel is the product of prevailing social conditions. If a worker should, by injury or illness or 'overproduc- tion,' be thrown on to the scrap heap of unemployment, and search in vain for weeks for another job, so that at last he is seized in the clutches of grim despair, or should he think of his future, and ...

I'm getting on in years, and I know what is before a. man who leaves the service to start life again; but, if I thought I couldn't get a living at something else, then, before I'd undergo another year of fiis slavery, I'd buy a revolver and blow my 1) ? brains out right here!'

Morality and 'Blind' .Justice: Samuel Hordern and Felix Booth, trad ing as Anthony Hordurn and Sons, were charged at the Central Police .Court with selling a preparation alleged to be magnesia which wasn't magnesia according lo law. The analyst's report showed that the lluid only contained 1. o:- per cent, of carbonate of magnesia instead of 2 per cent. The label on the bottle set forth that the preparation was of the greatest value for children, and also that it should be taken by women dur ing pregnancy. It was also -/.further pro claimed on the label that the fluid was in valuable as a pick-me-up after a drinking spree.

Bernard Shawisms. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 17 September 1910
Bernard Shawisms. No man can be a pure specialist without being in the strict sense an idiot. Do not give your children moral and religious instruction unless you are quite sure they -vill not take it too seriously. Better be the mother of Henri Quatre and Nell Gwynne than of Robespierre and Queen Mary ,Tudor. Criminals do not die by the hands of the law. They die by the hands of other mer.. Assassination on the scaffold is the worst form of assassination-, because there it is invested with the approval of society. It is the deed that teaches, not the name we give it. Murder and capital punishment are not opposites that cancel one another, but similars that breed thiir kind. When a man wan te to murder a tiger he calls it sport ; when the tiger wants to murder him he calls it feroc ity. The distinction between Crime and Justice is no greater. It is not necessary to replace a guillotined criminal; it is neces sary to replace a guillotined social system. There are no perfectly honorab...

Government carried by other unions had a, most encouraging effect on the men and an irritating effect on the Premier. The following lines, writer unknown, were sent to the secretary of the U.L.U. : '' Lie low,' they said to Verran, *' For your dignity's sake lie low! Let thkm light out the battle — To Oodnadatta go!' 'I'll go,' said their butt in his- Tolly, . With a most portentious frown, ' I'll teach them not to flout me When I bid the curs lie down.
