The Recruit. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 May 1915

The Recruit In tattered garmeuts, scathed, stained, and worn — Homeless and friendless; destitute, for lorn ; His heart embittered by the slights he bore, While begging for his bread from door to door. -Men turned to shun him as he shuffled by. Or gazed upon him with unpitying eye. And not one door, in all that country side, ~ At his approach, in welcome opened wide. In all the world not one small spot on earth To call his own. The land that gave him birth Had naught to heap upon him 1. abuse ; For such as he HIS country had no use. Then times were changed ; t'was when ? HIS country's pride Was humbled. And to him she'd flung aside She turned with troubled face, :r do vncast brow ; She said : My son, your country needs you now. Thus, kindled by her call, at once there burned Within the heart of him whom she had spurned, A flaineof filial ardour and with speerl. He turned to help her in her hour of need. And then, at last, a place for him was found — A little spot, on earth— BEXEATH ...

BOULDER NOTES. Propaganda going along quietly hero. The local lias been reinforced by a few good rebels from the back country. The leading capitalist on those fields, -Mr. Richard Hamilton, president of the Chamber of -Mines, ha.s been paying the LW.W. a bit of attention. He advises the level headed workers to take no notice of the I.W.VV. agit ators. Of course we understand this. -Mr. Hamilton wants the industries of the world organised in the interests of a fow rich meii. The I. \V.\Y. wants the industries of the world organised in the interests oi' the whole of humanity. This is what the class war is about. There is a big bread line hero now. The. sale of humanity goes on in the same -open and .shameless way. When are the workers going to revolt ? 35vcry member is asked to bo sure and turn out to the Sunday afternoon meet ings. Don't forget the liieraturo and lib rary. M.SAWTELL.

Capital's Education as a Working Class Drug. (A. Mack.) 'If the drums of Revolution Rolled their thunder in the street, Would your hearl be swift to answer With a glad, exultant beat? U ihe Red Flags of the People Streamed above the marching van Coii'd you drive a blade lor Free dom ? Would you desire to be a man?'' — J. K. MeDougall.

BOULDER NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 June 1915

BOULDER NOTES. Propaganda still going on. We have been able lately to hold meetings in Kalgoorlie. Tbe timber men working in the Great Boulder mine took 'Direct Action' the other day. Tbe men bad a grievance with the boss about being allowed to knock off in time to nut their tools away. The boss would not give the men any decided answer, so the men left the tools where they were work ing. iNext morning two wen? nred. I no rest of the timber men when they heard this, pulled out in a body. Misleading union officials then stepped 111 and told tbe men that 'they had done wrong in striking.' Anyhow, the whole affair finished up iu a win for tbe men, be cause they took 'Direct Action.' Of course had the timber men been edu cated in revolutionary working class tactics, they would have gone to work and 'Sabotaged'. Timber men have the best chance of any to use 'Sabot- age.' Anyhow, the most significant feature about the whole affair, was that from the general manager, 'Dicky Hamilton,' to t...
