CHANT OF LABOR. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 24 September 1910
CHANT OF LABOR. O, heavy is tlii: burden your shoulders long Imve borne ; Oil, weary art- the ways you trend, ami sharp your crown of thorn ; You march along, forlorn of son};, with sob of sti fle I weeping^ And 'nippier seem the i|uietdcad, who, after work, are sleepint:. Hut -till, for you the future waits; foryou the sun rise glows ; For you, at last, the wilderness ahall blossom as the rose. In d ys to Ik; you shall lx- free, and neigbor with his neighbor, , And friend with friend, shall celebrate emanci pated labor! Oh, wake, wake, wake, The future beckons bright! The long dark night is sweeping past, And the morning will Jkj light. — Aauox Watson.

Mental Dynamite. Or Little Lessons to Learn. iiy -; rcoiti ; i-: ii, kikki'atkick. Lesson Ten : What the Socialists Want. .Before stating what the Socialists want, let. me remind yui: 1 . That despotism is wrong, and that, logically; any politically despotic society should be RECONSTRUCTED with the po litical despotism left out. 2. That despotism is wrong, and that, therefore, any industrially despotic society also should be RECONSTRUCTED, with the industrial despotism left out. 0. Capitalism (the present CLASS-labor 'system) is an industrial despotism — the despotism OF AND BY A CLASS. 4. THEREFORE, the Socialists seek the RECONSTRUCTION of society with the in dustrial despotism left out; and, hence, The Socialists Propose: To reconstruct society industrially on the plan of mutualism, as follows: 1. The social ownership of the means of production. 2. The social control of the means of production. o. The production of goods primarily tor social service of all, instead of primarily f...

Broken Hill. ,. The De Bavay works is becoming a' slaughter-house for wage-slaves.

Subject: ^ ) License. A pa rson'(Hev. Har- ris) upheld the dignity of the temperance reformers, and Noonan (local publican) the brewery interest. Statistics and authorities in galore were quoted by both sides, but the trail of Plunder was over it nil . Gray criti cised both sides severely, and told them that the real cause of the misery and drunken ness of to-day was the private ownership of the means of wealth production. Ho de clared that if they destroyed the octopus that forces men to toil under intolerable condi tions in order to gain bread to live, the evil of drink would pass away. The parson, in replying, was very wroth — and very unfair. He became excited ...

What Shall We Do? [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 24 September 1910
What Shall We Do? HV DANDKI.ION. .By the treachery of the Labor Party in '.he Federal Parliament in making it compulsoiy to give our sons up to the capitalists to be trained to mur der, we. the Socialists of Australia, are laced with a very serious problem which must be solved in the near fu ture. As International Socialists we are naturally opposed to murder, either retail or wholesale; and, be ing opposed to war, we cannot allow ourselves or our children to be forced to take up the infernal implements of war even to secure titles for the traitors who now mislead the work ers of Australia. We must, to be consistent, continue to cultivate international sentiment as opposed to the stupid and mischievous national sentiment fostered by the corrupt 'Labor' gang. We must still re gard the workers of the world as our comrades and friends, no matter which portion of the planet's surface they work and suffer in. We must still maintain that the real enemies of the workers are always found at...

The Political Criminal. P.Y .1. liU'.MKXTIIAl,. 'The prison for.politiwil dissentients corresponds to i\w stake for religious dissentients.'

The fear of honest criticism and the exposure of fallacious doctrines has so moved the reigning class, by fear of the conse quences of the awakened masses taking control of the governmental mach...

S.F.A. News &. Notes. South Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 24 September 1910
S.F.A. News & Notes. South Australia. JJY II. S.I1. Tiik Railway Laborers' strike is settled, and the men have won right out. They knocked all the fight out of Honest John Verran, and won without the assistance of that fountain head of the absolute sectional unions, the Trades and Labor Council. The final set tlement was arranged between the delegates from the U.L.U. and the Ministry. The T rales and Labor Council was entitcly ig nored in the matter. The fight has done grand educational work in the ranks of the workers, and they are now fast learning that it is useless for them to take the advice of political oppor tunists and their papers about voting at the ballot box until they are first organised on the industrial field on a class-conscious basis. The ranks of the Labor .Party have been so shaken that various individuals are now throwing the blame upon poor old honest John, and saying that it was his stupid ness that caused all the trouble; but they ovcr .look the fact t...
A Slaughterhouse Sweatshop. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 24 September 1910
A Slaughterhouse Sweatshop. HV II. I.. PKNTOISI). Thk average trades unionist, in tlic various craft unions, is crying ' Peace, Peace ' — at any price. He imagines that so long as he can fix an agreement with his master for allegedly better conditions, it is alright with the rest of the world. Once having fixed this agreement, he does not care a brim stone spark how his fellow-unionists in other occupations fare. Through this failure to recognise that the interests of all workers in all industries are identical, sweating in its worst form thrives and flourishes in every calling. This sweating prevails in industries whether an organisation of workmen exists or not, thereby proving the impotence of trades unionism. In the meat industry one section of the Slaughtermen's Union recently struck work on account of the masters trying to force Worse conditions on them than previously existed. This section took the only action that was possible to defeat the masters; yet another section of th...

An Open Letter. To the Workers of Every Country, irrespective of Sex or Age. r.Y v. I-:. i'isAiii:xi«). Won k Kit! Who art thou? What art t.iuu? human being, animal, bird, reptile, inject, or some other creature? Already 1 have lived many years. - Every day I see thee; but know not who or what thou art — a living being, a machine, or what not.

Amongst them I cam. ot find thee. Where art thou? Answer 'me 'when I call. Tell me who and where thou art. I have had a dream, a dreadful dream, of miserable huts, hunger, distress, faces thin and white through lack of food, cripples, children and grandparents dying of starva tion, youths and maidens, in the absence of employment, selling their bodies for bread, fathers wandering in search of work, and even begging, for the support of sick wife or family. In my dream 1 asked: '...

'' My sou.' said be, 'you have linisbed college and you mint m;ike a show at least of gelling busy. Let me explain to you ;i, few fundamentals. Here 1 have a bundle of sticks.

He tried and tried to break the sticks, but could not. 'See bow easy it is,' said the old man. taking the sticks, cutting the cord and breaking them one by one.

A Column of Clippings. That is the gravamen of the charge which can be justly brought against Spain — that the trial of Ferrer was no trial; that ho may have been guilty or may have been inno cent, hut that nothing was proved. — Specta- tor. ? The execution of Sonor Ferror is a crime, and a stupid crime. Tt boars an ominously close resoniblanc to those deeds of blind and unscrupulous panic that history has 'marked as the forerunners of revolution. — The Nation. , ? Pluck,' said the financier, 'is the secret of success. ' Well,' interrupted the shabby man. 'I'll give you 10dol. if you'll teach me your method of plucking.' Government by injunction is strictly in line with the capitalists' conception of libert.N which, of course, means liberty for the capitalist, and slavery for the worker. Socialism is the conservator of justice, the promoter of human destiny, and the safe guard of human rights. England is agog because a relative of the king has printed a- book in which he sees Social...
