Obituary. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 July 1915

Obituary. ? « — - — - My the hist mail from the Far East, wo received the sad information that Comrade Sifo of Die Chinese Anar chist Communist group, and editor of the Chincpo-Esperantist paper, 'La Yoco do L'l'opolo,' lias passed away in Shanghai hospital. Comparatively affluent ui his earlier days, his revolutionary and advanced ideas reduced him to poverty, and his work for international working class understanding and the dangers attach ed to a revolutionist's life in China, shattered his health, and he developed consumption. Being practically penniless., and the movement buin^ financially embarrass ed, he was obliged to go into the low est grade section of the Shanghai hos pital. In that grade., the doctors pay but little attention to the poorer pa tients, and in a fow short weeks Sifo passed away. Comrade Sifo was probably the first revolutionist- to place before the Chin ese workers the principles of the Indus trial Workers of the World. Although an exponent of ideas that be...

Liverpool Dockers. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 July 1915

Liverpool Dockers. King Albert of Belgium is the rich est monarch in Europe.

J he bulk oi: lus wealth, as is well known, is held in the resources of liol tfiaii Congo, notorious for the infam ous atrocities perpetrated on the na tives. 'It would be much better if the Chancellor of the Exchequer, instead of associating himself so much with the Stigjrijj.scs, would go down to the coun try and have straight talks with work ing incMi, telling them what was ex jjKcted of them and how they were to do it.'

Brisbane Doings. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 July 1915

Brisbane Doings. Splendid propaganda meetings are being held here, and signs of awaken ed interest are manifest More and more, as we see the concentration of capital aud the trustification of busi ness going on around us, are we con vinced of the inadequacy of craft un ion organisation and methods.

Fellow Worker Birch lectured on Sunday evening m the hall on various 'isms,' and among others touched on Socialism, Communism, Anarchism( and Industrial Unionism.

Bedcord's Bloomers. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 July 1915

BedcorcFs Bloomers, Under the caption 'On the Scrap-heap,' the 'Bulletin,' 29/4/15, J devotes more than two columns to a passionate plea for more popula- j tion. A registry-office proprietor calling himself Randolph Bedcord is j the writer. j Alarmed apparently at the. falling-off in his business— the people j who seek work per lneaiuin of registry offices, having nearly all gone « to die war — Bedcord howls frantically for a further supply of cheap ? fS and docile labor. Alter reterriug admirably to the methods adopted by i the ruling ciass of the Middle Ages in dealing with recalcitrant workers, jS and liiciuemaily deploring the advance of sanitary science — presumably % because it makes the upkeep of the working animal more expensive, and j enables vhe weak or delicate worker to cling to life a while longer — 1 Bedcord proceeds to rake Europe with a line toblh-comb in search of | a suitably servile class of labor. 1 .fasaing over tocandiuavia, Denmark, Great Britain, and France, ...

The Prawblem Sawlvers. Dedicated to the W.E.A. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 July 1915

The Prawblem Sawlvers. ? ? ? 9 ? Dedicated to the W.E.A. His pink fingers are so pretty, And he has a bright and witty Lofty brow ! Seems to think that we are slight ing All the wrongs we're really right ing, And that he does all the fighting — Telling how. In his condescending manner He adopts the worker's banner And his own ; He descends into our gutter, As we sweat for bread and butter, Saying things we COULD NOT utter, All alone. While we work, he does the grunt Always he for glory hunting, Large or small. Has there been a row? — he led ii Some wise word? — old High-Brow said it, And he always hogs the credit For it all. When we speak it is with terror, Lest an inadvertant error, He detect. Count the foibJes he abolished, All the gods he has demolished — And his language is SO polished And correct! Yet I'm sure our friend so scathing, Loves our movement — as a play thing, New and rare. He delights to solve each puzzle, That our common brains befuzzle, And to pry his yellow muzzl...

The I.W.W. Preamble. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 July 1915

The I.W.W. Preamble. ilie working ciass and the employing class have nothing in common. There can be no peace so long as hunger and want are found among mil lions of working people, and the few who make up the employing class have all the good things of life. Between these two classes a struggle must go on until the workers of ohe world organise as a class, take possession of the earth and the ma chincry of production, and abolish the wage system. We hnd that the centreing of the management of industries into fcwei and fewer hands makes the trade unions unable to cope with the y ever-growing power of the employing class. The trade unions foster a jS state of affairs which allows one set of workers to be pitted against another set of workers in the same industry, thereby helping to defeat . '; one another in wage wars. Moreover, the trade unions aid the employ- ; ing class to mislead the workers into the belief that the working class \ have interests in cominon with their employers. ...

The Fear of the Dark. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 July 1915

The Fear of the Dark. The belief in warlocks, witches, and other malign beings invented by the ruling class of bygone generations as a salutary check to the aspirations of the workers, dies hard. In England withcraft was first dis tinctly made a capita] crime by James I. Nor was the popular fear of the dark a mere epidemical frenzy. Three uiousaiKi persons were lawfully'- ex I't-uterl during the era of the Long Par liament. Harrington, commenting on tli-? statute of Henry VI., relating to witchcraft, estimates the number of those put to death in England on this charge at thirty thousand. Of those boiler], burnt, or dragged asunder with out the sanction of the infallible crea ture of the long oars, history is silent. As late as 1716. according to the 'Quarterly Review' of that period, a woman named Mrs. Hicks and her daughter agrd nine, wove hanged at Huntingdon for 'selling their souls to the devil, and raising a storm by pull ing off their stockings, and making a lather of soap.'

AN ARISTOCRATIC PANIC. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 July 1915

AN ARISTOCRATIC PANIC. In all recent issues of the capi talistic press there are printed state ments made by the squealing para sites that infest the British nation. Most of thft titieA fi-snids. wlin Hra.w incomes that would be better spent 0;i pig raising, are frantic in their demands that every wosker, willing or hot, should be forced to the front, obviously for no other reason than to defend these thieving reptiles, with their purchased titles and stolen wealth. The incredible meanness and cold-blooded egotism of these dis | tortions of humanity must surely j soon fill every worker with disgust and result in a revolution that will display all capitalists and the system they nourish under. Meanwhile, it I is a pleasure to know that these lord I bT parasites are suffering from a fear I of being robbed as unscrupulously I as they have robbed all others weak | er than themselves. I They realise that German success would mean their reduction to the level of society occupied by the co...
