Boiled Ministers. [Newspaper Article] — People — 25 May 1901
Boiled Ministers. Documents have been found in Pekin which show that it was the intention of the Chinese to boil the ministers alive. Let us forget the fact that in dyeing, smelting, soap boiling, and chemical works we boil many men, because we want to be indignant at these Chinese who were going to boil the ministers Does it not call for a blow that jnust be struck at the heart of thu Yellow* Terror, prefeiably at some convenient port, a city that can be looted, or in a fertile portion of the land ? Does it not call for a wink from Manifest Destiny, and a nod from Expansion ? Boiled ministers, cold boiled ministers, bard boiled ministers ! W e must shudder at the thought, and get ready for an increase in our Asiatic force. — 'Weekly People.' j
How Comes It? [Newspaper Article] — People — 25 May 1901
How Gomes It ? How comes it that reforms for the workers as reaspnable as this of an Eight-hour Day Bhould have to be fought for so strenuously and agitated for so ong ? It arises from the fact that Labor, the pro ducer of all value, the source of all wealth, is a Commodity. The worker is forced to go out into the market and sell the only thing of value he possesses, and that is his power to work, or in other words to create values. Brought into conjunction with the tools or ma chinery provided by the capitalist and with the raw product, he creates a commodity of a definite hind whose value in the market is determined by the amount of labor required to create it. It has been computed that in the first three hours of a working day of nine hours the laborer recompenses the capitalist for the wages paid him. I he remaining six hours are de voted to the production of profits for his master. J he more work the capitalist can force out of the laborer, the more value the worker creates, an...

They gave Him what he Wanted. [Newspaper Article] — People — 25 May 1901
They gave Him what he Wanted, A monkey sat on a cocoanut tree : in his baud he held a leaf with some charcoal marks upon it. A troop of monkeys started to climb the t'ee to gather nuts ; the. leaf-tnonkey halted them. ' Hold on,' he said, ' I 'own this tree.'* The monkeys smiled. ' Ihis 'eat is my title aeea, conferring on me ownership from a dead monkey, and empowers me to collect rent ' The monkeys grinned. ' I only intended to collect four nuts a day from you for the privilege you enjoy of gathering nuts ; but ' — The monkeys laughed . ?' Because it rained so nicely and crops will be excessively large, I am compelled to charge you six nuts a day.' The monkeys ha-ha-ed at him as a great huoiorist, and started again to climb the tree. ' Hold on !' he cries, ' I'm in earnest ' Thej frowned. ' And if you don't pay me in advance, I'll — ' They scowled. ' Dispossess you, and you cannot again come to this tree.'

Getting Mixed. Things are getting more mixed every day Broken Hill way. Quite recently two candidates were se lected by the local labor people to contest the comparatively soft seat recently held by Thomas, and that represented by Labor rat Ferguson j,wno is in cne neiaj. JBiach of the selected caudidates wanted to run for the soft thing, and one of them suggested that the matter should be decided by ballot. It was, how ever, decided by the local executive and now the msu chosen to fight Ferguson won't take on the job at all.

I Law and Order. I ? * ? : The advocates .of law and order' in Montana, have arrived at that stage of law and order known as personal violence, says the 'Weekly People.'

LABOR AND GROVEL. SYDNEY LABOR COUNCIL TALKS. ITS HORROR OF THE RIDICULOUS. [Newspaper Article] — People — 25 May 1901
LABOR AND GR3VEfL. i SYDNEY . LABOR COUNCIL TALKS. ITS HORROR OF THE RIDICULOUS. On Thursday of last week, the Sydney Labor Council had a little light and color infused into its rather drab deliberations. The Council is not remarkable for any profound l- nowledge of the basis of the labor movement in its economic aspect. Its members utterly fail to grasp the nature of the struggle j confronting society. A mild delegate with (under the circumstances) the somewhat ironicial name of Bunting, startled his co-delegates by moving : 'That this Council expresses strong disap proval of the expenditure of public money 1 pon street decorations, and is of opinion that the opening of the first Federal Parliament of United Australia should be marked by a lasting memoiial worthy of one of its most prosperous States.' Mr. Bunting raised his voice againBt the ginger-bread stuff stuck about the Btreets, and said he voiced the opinions of thousands in con demning it, and all the grovel now being indul...

STRIKE IN THE IRON TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — People — 25 May 1901
t strike in the iron TR*DE. I Consternation reigned in Sydney 'business' circles when it became known that the Ironworkera' Aa nstants were determined to stand to their demand for a minimum ' wage of a modest seven shillings 3 day — a demand that was met by I the management witn a curt re '? fasal, occasioning -a prompt Btrike. Daring the reign of the Damn ; Chicago Dibbs ministry, whm ; bauks were crashing, and 'trade' was bad, causing the profit-makers ; to ftel the pincb, ironworkers wages generally were reduced, and the : men employed at Mort's Dock sub J mitfced to a reduction, having a pro mise that when 'trade became brisker' they would receive the old f amount. It was one of those fre ? qaent instances of the gullibility of ?' the workers as » class. They tamely submitted to a reduction '? because 'trade was bad,' and when ; trade improved, only a few men were given back not the amount of : the reduction, but a portion of the ; . redaction. When the remainder ? applied for t...

A WARNING NOTE. [Newspaper Article] — People — 25 May 1901
A WARNING NOTE. The People would like to warn the Ironworkers' Assistants that they are taking a false step when they tie their handB by pledging themselves not to make farther de mands for such a lengthy period as . twelve months, or for any period at , all for that matter. The business . V. of unionists is to recognise the class 'H nature of the straggle in which j they are now engaged, and to base their actions on that recognition. The ironworkers are Bellers in the 'labor' market, and by the exigen cies of circumstances they are com pelled to go forth at intervals seek ing men who will consent to be come purchasers of their commodity, Laboring Power. Laboring Power is the only commodity tbe toiler has to sell. It conaii-ts of ahe marvel * Ions energies stored within the hu man frame ; it is, in fact, the laborer's life. And when, in the open market, he offers , this — his life — for sale, his main object is to secnre the very highest price ob tainable. To aid him in lifting the ...

The Bureau and Scab Labor. [Newspaper Article] — People — 25 May 1901
The Bureau and Scab Labor. An Ironworkers' picket told The People on Wednesday last that it was a well-known fact that , Ma .ti ger Franki, of Mort's Dock, had applied to the Labor Bureau for men to fill the places of men on strike, and that the matter had been referred to Mr, E. W. O'Sollivan who had intimated that men could he obtained from the Bureau pro vided they were paid the rates de manded by the strikers — viz^, seven sh Uinga a day It is doubtful whether this is quite correct, for the j ijawi vuicau jo uijuci vuc wupiuj of thp Minister for Education and abor, .'and therefore is out of the scope of Mr. O'riallivan's depart ment. But, if Mr. Fran*i has been notified to that effect by any de partment, the action Bhonld be re sented—and very strongly resented — by the united Labor bodies. Jt is well-known that when tbe ob ject is to defeat organised labor, employers will always pay — for the time being— high wages to scab labor, and tbe unionists demand in every intelligently-...
Tied to the Anchor. [Newspaper Article] — People — 25 May 1901
Tied to the Anchor. A paragraph is now going the rounds of the press to this effect : ' A large ship was in great danger of sinking in the Atlaniio Ocean, and the captain ordered the. passen- gers to tie themselves to anything they thought would keep Jthem afloat. Amongst the crowd of pas sengers an Irishman was heard to exclaim that he would tie himself to something that was big enough whi'e he was at it. Fortunately the ship survived the storm, when ; it was observed that Pat had tied himself to the anchor .' And it strikes Thb People that tbat is just what the ' Labor ' poli ticians of thiB country have. done. In spite ot many protests, they em barked on the rotten old coffin- ship of Capitalist politics, and now she is slowly sinking in the deep blue sea of Human Progession, and the bally fools have tied themselves to tbe anohor, and they're going down with her.
RESURRECTED! [Newspaper Article] — People — 25 May 1901
RESURRECTED ! Now is tbe politicians' winter of discontent made glorioas summer— for a brief period. Now is the season when the rats of Labor come forth from their holes to . root in the rotten refuse heaps of capitalist politics for the decaying morsels that are food and life to them. Of this tribe is Andy Kelly, who was wiped out by the labor voters of Denison in '94, as a re ward for his treachery in betraying labor in Parliament. After having been driven ont of the labor move ment, Kelly went to 'Wyalong, where he kept a pub., and, in due time contested the electorate as a 1 rotectionist. Needless to say, he was again defeated. He now keeps a pub in George-street, Syd ney, and has been selected as the ' Labor Candidate ' for Denison. The crowd ^behind Kelly iB a choice lot, and if there is either honesty or intelligence Lft aftnong the workers of Denison, they will bump this first political scab on their class, and give him a chance to devote ample time to his beer shop.
