FREAKS AND FRAUDS. [Newspaper Article] — People — 1 June 1901
FREAKS AND FRAUDS. Anything does for a Bogus Labor Candidate now. The Phillip Labor League has selected ' G Vern Barnett' as its candidate. Who is he ? Well, he draws teeth for a living, wears a top hat and a frock coat. Thb People knows no more of him, bnt con gr»w mtes tae Bogus crowa on tne 'tone' of their candidates. As predioted, that august body, ' the P.L.L Executive,' have taken Botany Dacey to their bosom without his retracting his repudia tion of the party that appeared in 'D T.' recently. He is duly en dorsed as a 'Solidarity candidate.' A very ragged and threadbare Banner will trail in the dust at Waterloo.

The House of "Proputty." [Newspaper Article] — People — 1 June 1901
The House of ' Pro* pntty.' Lee, ,See, and Co., dealers tn quack politics, are both out with proposals for constitutional reforms. Each agrees that the number of Ms.L.A. must be reduced, and that necessarily something must happen to the 'other place.' Lee pro poses to make it elective ; See pro poses an elected convention to con sider this and other constitutional matters. Both proposals must be strenu ously opposed in the interests of the working class. The Labor move ment in Australia has always de clared for the abolition of the Upper House, and that demand has re ceived strength by the establish ment of a Federal Parliament. Constitutional history teaches that howevor many chambers may con stitute a country's legislature, each ohamber becomes representative of one particular class or interest antagonistic to the other cham bers. French history gives us a clear instance of this in her assem blage of the Ntates-General, and one of the first acts of the '89 revo lutionists of the T...

GLEANINGS. [Newspaper Article] — People — 8 June 1901
. 1 GLEANINGS. i ? ♦ The bankers of England are not alarmod at the increase of the public debt. They profit by it and the working men pay the bills. Don't imagine that enthusiasm will keep the Socialist movement going. It takes money to pay the bills. The workingman must jrork out his own salvation. If he waits for the politicians to act he will still be wait- , ing when Gabriel toots his horn. rne people wbo declare that no one would work under Socialism are. the very ones who would have to work under that system, *nd t bat's where it hurts. The chattel slave was forced otr the auction block, but the wage slave has to fight with his fellows to get the chance of mounting it. There is work ahead for the grand army of Socialism. It will be no child's play to overturn capitalism. There is work ahead, and there is work right now. After witnhssinf the performances of the troops of the civilised world, around Pekin, the Chinese might perhaps feel like sending a few mis sionaries to Europe...

A Storm in a Teacup. [Newspaper Article] — People — 8 June 1901
- A Storm In a Teacup. .Such wai the phrase used by a delegate who bears a strong facial resemblance to Broken Hill Fergu son, during a discussion by Sydney Labor Council a week ago.. The organising committee had reported at a previous meeting that it had tried without su cess to organise the tin canister makers into a union. The men were afraid that, if they ever attended a meeting their iota would be lost The lordly boss these worke* s make profits for is none otber than jam-seller Edwards, elected by the workers of South Hydney to the .Federal Parliament. Mr. Edwards has not a reputation as a philanthropist, nor yet is he regarded as ever likely to debauch the workers by paying them high wages. If common report is true, Mr. Edwardg' establishment pays very low wages, and the Organising Committee of the Labor Council had written to this gentleman, ask. ing his serene permission to form a union among the men who manu facture his tin canisters. He was : also asked if he ''had any ob...

We proclaim the class struggle, and fight as a class for the overthrow of capitalism. W ith only mental and muscular force, Labor is a commodity, to be bought and sold in the np«n market, like any' other article ot capitalist comm...

Fifty years ago there was not a man in the -.world worth fifty mil lion dollars Tht re was only one nan in the TT S. worth five millions, there were not five worth a million.
