Spain. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 14 May 1910
Spain. The Spanish Government intends to begin a fresh campaign in Africa about the middle of May. The Socialists in accordance with the resolution of Stuttgart, have already taken their stand against the Government, as they did before the campaign at Melilla. El Soriaiixta affirms that if blood is to be shed and money wasted in a. new folly in North Africa, the country should rise as one man against the promoters of this crime. It advises the workers to prepare to sweep away those who are trying to reproduce the horrors of the war in Melilla. Pablo Igle sias, in the Vhhi Social ixta, after having made an estimate of the probable costs, say a that the whole country is hostile to the war. He says the working class will protest as it did before, and will follow, this, course with energy, without fear of persecution, even having recourse to a general strike if pro tests in the press and at public meetings do not suflice. If the peaceful strike does not attain its object, the workers wi...
Revolutionary Unionism [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 14 May 1910
Revolutionary Unionism JJY EUOKXK V. DKBS; Speech Delivered at Chicago, Novemlier l'o, WO.') ; Revii-ed by the Author and Re-issued SeptemlRT, UWU. The unity of labor, economic and po litical, upon the basis of the class struggle, is at this time the supreme need of the working-class. The pre vailing lack of unity implies lack of class consciousness ; that is to say, enlightened self-interest ; and this . can, must and will be overcome by revolutionary education and organis ation. Experience, long, painful and dearly bought, has taught some of us - that craft division is fatal to class unity. To accomplish its mission the working class must be united. They must act together ; they must assert their combined power, and when they do this upon the basis of the class struggle, then and then only will they break the fetters of wage slavery. We are engaged to-day in a class war ; and why? For the simple rea son that in the evolution of the capi talist system in which we live, soci ety has...
Nearly 100 Hours a Week. The Cab Drivers in the Mud. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 14 May 1910
Nearly 100 Hours a Week. The Cab Drivers in the Mud. Last week the Wages Board declared wages and conditions for the Cab Drivers. There are some, of course, who will say that the award is a good thing for the cabbies — but the cabbies are unreasonable enough not to think so. It has been the boast of the Labor Party and unions supporting it that we have practically achieved the eight-hours day in Australia. This award fixes the hours for drivers of horse-cabs at NINETY- 1 ONE and SEYENTY-EIGJ-1T for| alternate weeks (so as to give every second Sunday oft). This means an average of EIGHTY-FOUR AND A HALF J-IOUHS PER WEEK, and the pay is to be 4()s per week, or' LESS THAN SIXPENCE PER HOUR. — a magnificent wage surely for an occupation that is both ardu ous and dangerous. ? ' While the cabby's remuneration is to be less than, sixpence an hour, he is' to be docked for lout time at the rate of one shilling ]-cr hoar ! ? So that if a cabby' loses, ' by default,'1 40 hours! in a week, lie ...

\ Germany. ;:,| The workers at Kiel struck for half-a-day ||jii protest against the Prussian Suffrage Bill. :^:: The employers punished them for this ' dis .ff. obedience ' by locking them out for throe f days. The police, of course, broke up the ;£ demonstration, and several persons were |; arrested. I A conflict occurred between bvukling-trade | strikers and blacklegs at Norhausen, Sax | ony. The police took sides with tin- non I unionists, and charged the strikers with drawn swords. (i On March 18, multitudes visited the Cemetery of the Martyrs' and placed wreaths on the graves of those who fell at the barricades on March 18, 1848. So great was the crowd that many hundreds were unable to get into the cemetery. The number of wreaths was enormous, and almost all the wreaths bore inscriptions which reflected directly on the fight for universal suffrage in Prussia. The police assembled in large numbers. In addition to those present at the Cemetery, practically every house in the neig...

The Madness of Mr. Wade! [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 14 May 1910
The Madness of Mr. Wade! — -+. — At the Clifton Police Court on Thurs day of last Aveek, before Mr. Elliott, P.M., Mr. .John Curtis, a miner, was charged with 'using insulting lan guage within the hearing of persons in a public place.' Over a month ago Mrs. Lynch and H. E. Holland visited' Scarborough in response to a local invitation, and addressed a public meeting on the subject of Socialism. Tn the course of their remarks, they both attacked the Wade Government for its brutal ity in connection with the recent strike, and Holland moved a resolu tion demanding the release of the strike prisoners. This motion Mr. Curtis seconded, and in the course of his remarks said he hoped the day would come when the unionists would not be frightened by a few policemen — or a few paltry policemen. Shortly afterwards, he was served with a summons for using insulting lan guage ! The case was adjourned on two occasions, but on Thursday finality .was reached. Mr. Curtis pleaded not guilty, and severa...
France. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 14 May 1910
France. The soldier Amirault, who has been in prisoii for some months on a charge of anti militarist propaganda, has at last been re leased. The railway workers are demanding a commencing minimum salary of 1,-S(X) francs annually for the lowest grade of workers, or five francs a day, a working day of ten hours, a weekly day of rest, and adequate old-age pensions.

Street righting has occurred between the military and the strikers. Owing to a report that soldiers had killed a striker, trains were stopped and vans were ovur t turned, while strikers armed with stones, 1 bottles, and pieces of iron, welted the dra ft goons, who rode down the strikers.

Socialism: what is It? UY .1. H. WILSON. .Somkonk lias said tliat of all the hooks in the world, the Bible is the most widely read and the least understood. In a sense the same is true of Socialism. Men use the word gliblv who scarcely comprehend its real . .... i 11 Ii ,.i ... 1 - meaning. Others condemn an n Maims tor and yet could not tender a definition if asked tn do so. While among the clergy, who an ever a drag on the wheel of progress, the word Socialism has of recent date hecoine quite popular. Vet, in spite of the fact that the Socialist is ahroad, and that Socialist literature is to he found in every village and city of importance, there are hundreds who still ask, What isSocwlism? The worker asks the question hecause he has heen told that it means comfort for him and his class; the husiness man asks the question because he has heen told that it means confiscation; and the girl in the modern factory (or sweat simp) hecause she has heen told that it means the breaking up o...

Thk Httlo northern European country, Den mark, with fully 2,000,000 inhabitants, can rejoice in a healthy, growing SocialDemo cratic movement, the history of winch I, as requested, shall endeavor to outline. The oricin of the movement dates back to 1871, when the struggles for liberty m France re-echoed through the countries ot the world, and the foundation of the move ment was. at once socialistic. In conjunction with the Socialist organis ation formed in London in mm, called the Internationale, a Socialist Wnrkingman's Union was started in the metropolis of Den mark, Copenhagen, with several branches— so-called Trade.sseksion.s- -the present I radcs Unions.

The King. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 14 May 1910
The King. nv h.k. ii. Tub King is dead ! LONG LIVK THE PKOPLE! Thkre is'always sorrow when Death's grim shadow falls across the threshold of a home ; and we need not say that we Socialists sympathise with King Edward's family in the matter of their bereavement just as we would extend human sympathy to any other bereaved family. The Socialist movement has never had any quarrel with the late King as an individual. Like all the rest of us, he was the creature of his en vironment. Possibly he was quite as good as that environment would permit him to be. But we do not join in the general frenzy of fulsome lying that at this sfcige^ fills the pages of every newspa per one takes up. Some one has said that Half the lies of this lying race Are written on stone in the burial place. It's safe to say that a fair number are printed with large black headlines, alongside of turned column rules, Avhen a king dies. The King is essentially the figure head of the prevailing system. : The prevailing sy...
