Women Chainmakers of England. [Newspaper Article] — People — 15 June 1901
Women Ghainmakers of England. It is now some ten years since pub ic attention was directed to the slavish conditions of the wo men chainmakers at Ci-adley Heath, yet all the outcry has brought them no betterment, '? he women are all practically home workers, carrying orf' their operations in a shop situated at the rear of the cottages, fitted with smith s hearth, bellows, and an anvil chain The links are hammered out and moulded by means of an 'Oliver,' a very heavy hammer worked with the foot. *ome of the women are skilfu and rapid, but the more delicate workers can only labor a few hours a day, and have the greatest difficulty in eking out a bare existence. As there is no agreement as to working hou s, the hammers can be heard at any hour of the day or night Women seventy years of age often com bine their energies with those of their married daughters in blowing the bellows, heating the iron, or driving the 'Oliver.' And now further reductions have forced them to strike to the num...

NEILL AT DARLINGTON. Candidate John Neill opened at Darlington on Wednesday night last, and despite the bitter cold the audience was good. The chairman (Batho) opened proceedings precisely at eight o'clock, and soon got the meeting in full swing. Oandidate Neill directed the atten tion of the workers to the dependent position they occupied under present conditions, and outlined! the develop ment from Slavedom to Serfdom, showing how the producer had. ever been the victim of the non-producer. There existed in society to-day two classes, those who worked fur wages, and those who loafed on profits, and the latter class by virtue of owninf the machinery used in production, and manipulating the machinerv of Go vernment, dictate the terms and conditions under which the great maw of humankind shall produce the ne cessaries of life.

British Financial Situation. [Newspaper Article] — People — 15 June 1901
British Financial Situa* tion. The facts and consequences of the financial situation ceafced by the Budget are thus set forth by the ' Daily News' : 1. The national debt has again leapt up to over peven hundred millions. 2. The limit of profitable taxation has been reached on most articles subject to Custom and Excise duties. 3. A reversion has been made to the obsolete syste n — which Freetrade and the French Treaty killed — of export duties. 4. A. great article of universal popular consumption, which has been free of duty for more than a generation, has been subjected to a heavy duty. 5. The Transvaal War is ad mitted to cost more than donble the Crimean War, and an attempt to subdue two little farming Republics has impo-ed a heavier strain than the final effort to smash Napoleon in Spain. 6- No limit can J be placed either to the cost or the duration of that war. 7. No proximate or likely con tribution to that war can be ob tained from the goldfields of the Trausvaal.

' Ten years is a long time, James. Still we're aware that some people are easily satisfied. The People was gratified to learn that ' Mr. MoGtiwen disclaimed my responsibility for the presence of the Duke.' A dispute occurred between the Lion and the Lamb. They decided to arbitrae 'When they had fin ished arbitrating the ' lamb was inside. That's how it'll be when the workers and the capitalists — the robbed and the robbers — arbitrate. And Mr. McGowen 'put it to every honest man 1o say if there was a more honorable and equitable way of ending disputes.' The Socialist Labor Party is...

BOGUS AND GENUINE. LET THE WORKING CLASS ELECTOR CONSIDER. [Newspaper Article] — People — 15 June 1901
BOGUS AND GENUINE. LET THE WORKING CLASS ELECTOR CONSIDER. Three are a number of electors who, at a first glance, are likely to condemn the Australian Socialist League for putting forward candi dates at the coming election in elec torates that are being contested by '? The P.l.L.' So far as members of that organisation is concerned, the organised Socialist movement has been at no pains to conceal its views that that body has forfeited all claim to be regarded as the defenders of working olass interests. FaotB in proof of that view have been advanced olten, and if further proof is required, it is furnished in the stupid, mendacious, and cowardly speech of Misleader Mc Gowen, delivered last week. The Socialist movement is justi fied, and has no compunction, ther^ fore, in opposing their candidates, and, by placing before the working class electors genuine I abor cancli. dates, give tbem the opportunity of consigning traitors to the obscurity they have earned. At the same i time, the S...
