FREMANTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 June 1915

FREMANTLE. Although the membership has not in creased to any marked extent the in fluence of the I. WAV. is growing week by week. For the last three weeks we have conducted large successful meetings, Fellow worker King holding the crowd interested for aii hour and a half each meeting. The sales of literature and 'Direct Action'' have been very gratifying from a financial and educational point of view and generally speaking, sales continue to increase with growth of propaganda meetings. The Slociahsts are still indulging in chin wagging over nothing in particu lar. They 'cut no ice' these days. The I.W.W. is the only body that de livers the goods, because it believes in doing things. Best wishes from rebels in the West. N. JEFFERY. But it doesn't seem he can. His Worship : A question I'd ask you — it might sound grotesque — Why aren't these dear children — say — er — Chidleyesque ?

MORE WORK FOR THE SEAMAN'S OFFICIALS. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 June 1915

tMORE WORK FOR THE SEAMAN'S OFFICIALS. (It seems that overworked, boss loving- officials will have some more apologising and crawling to do round the boss' back-door to ex plain what they are going to do with the crew of the 'Victoria.' We must remind the officials that if thev carry the chuckina-out business to its logical conclusion, that there will be no dividends for them, and then they will have to fall back on their best friend, the shipowner. — Ed.) Heavy fines were imposed upon several members of the stokehold crew of the Huddart-Parker steamer Victoria, when the vessel was ?l Napier on Saturday last. The Vic toria, which reached Auckland yes terday morning from Southern ports, arrived at Napier on Satur day afternoon, and was to have sailed for Gisborne at 7 p.m., but in consequence of three stokers and trimmers being locked up for unseemly behaviour ashore, l'ic steamer was delayed for several hours. It is alleged that while the men were ashore they assaulted Constable Nig...

I 'believe in making a 'hell of a row' so that there will be no necessity to make a row in hell when Satan tries 'Direct Action' on his victims. I believe that whosoever will be a man and bo honest at the same time will have to commit suicide, because he won't be wanted. - I believe that the average plute will have no chance of going to heaven, because the necessary condition, as laid down in the 'good book,' which those who desire a. celestial abode will have fo fulfil, is thinness, so that they will be able to pass through an eye of a needle.

When the landlord comes for his rent (for letting you live in your country), and you have none to pay, when he has you evict ed, and you lind that the work house is the only place left lor you, when your children cry for bread, or when in desperation you steal a loaf for them, and you are given three months' hard labor, when on coming out of prison you lind every man's hand against you, when you — But why go on?

Human Rubbish as Heroes. A Mack. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 June 1915

Human Rubbish as Heroes. A Mack. 'Presumably every self-governing country has power to deport persons who are considered undesirable for whatever reason, the only obstacle be ing that the other country may object to 'Human Rubbish' being dumped on its shores, as England may object to receiving the trouble mongers whom the Cape proposes to deport thither.' We all remember the occasion that produced the above vitriolic exudation from one of our Sydney morning pap ers. Early in 1914 when the workers were fighting against capital they were Hu man rubbish when they were being shot down and deported they were trouble mongers and industrial nuis ances. But how different is the cry to-day, when they are fighting for capi tal to assure them a greater share of the world's markets. Now the workers are 'Heroes of rhe Dardanelles,' 'Our Heroes,' 'Our Brave Soldiers,' etc. One would scarce think if possible than our masters' opinions could change so completely in a short twelve months; but then t...
