Alpine, N. S. W. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 July 1915

Alpine, N. S, W. » The l.W.W. bunch are doing good work round this part of the world. We have just had a visit from an organis er of the R W. and G.L. Union, and it was the fun of the world. Talk about logic! To what extent the navvies are de luded by their officials was plainly evi denced last Sunday. After an haran gue of over an hour, during which he eulogised the conditions we had gained, and the conditions under which we worked, the organiser wound up by paying a tribute to the officials of the R.W. and G.L. Union for the interest they took in looking after the welfare of the navvy. It was soft soap, and no mistake. He did not, in one instance, attempt to educate his audience to their posi tion, nor show how to get better con ditions for them. After a lot of palaver, questions were called for. F. W. McCue asked several important questions, but the organiser was plainly in a quagmire, from which he could not extricate himself. He seemed quite amazed at the questions; which indic...

FREMANTLE. Arrival of Organiser Reeves. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 July 1915

FREMANTLE. Arrival of Organiser Reeves. Arriving safe and sound, Fellow Worker Reeves was not long getting into harness. Equipped with 18 'Direct Actions' he made a raid on the fire men's aud trimmers' mess room of the Katoomba, and there handed our the dope. The half hour talk, however, might have proved abortive if ore gar rulous Irish bonehead had had his way, because he continually interrupt ed the speaker with such inane ie marks as follows : — 'Damned agita tors,' 'Ought to be put off the boat,1' 'What good do you do us?' etc., but the boys of the Katoomba are made of good material, and speedily put an end to the remarks of the vociferous slave, and, taking things all round, a great impression was made. In the afternoon Fellow Worker Reeves was bid 'Good-bye' by a few of the local boys, and then he entrain ed for Boulder. Best wishes to boys.— JEFFER.Y.

No Parliament. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 July 1915

No Parliament. I know, from the actual experi ence of living the life of a wage earner, that there are many work ers who believe; m and accept the idea of the One Big Union; yet liow to do without Parliament is a puzzle and a mystery to them. This stumbling block, this question must be met and explained to our bellow - siaves in clear and terse language of almost Biblical simplicity: All' reasoning is based on self evident truths. It is self-evident that nobody can fulfil two contradictory functions at the same time and place. A man cannot be hoth a black man and a white man at the same time and place: he is either a black man -or a white man. Nobody can be both a wageearn er and a capitalist at the same time and place; he is either a wageearn er or a capitalist. Parliament cannot both adminis trate and destroy capitalism at the same time and place ; it must either perpetuate or overthrow capitalism. Now, it is the, easiest thing in the world to prove that every Labor Government has...

The Dishwasher. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 July 1915

The Dishwasher. Alone in the kitchen, in grease laden steam. I pause for a moment, a moment to dream, For even a dishwasher th inks of a day Wherein will be leisure for rest and for play; And now that I pause o'er the transom1 there floats A stream of the Traumerei's soul-stirring notes, Engulft in a blending of sorrow and glee I wonder that music can r'each even me. For now I am thinking, my brain has been stirred, The voice of a master the lowly has heard ; .1 The heart-breaking sob of the sad violin Arouses the thoughts of *he sweet 'might have been'; , Had men been born equal the use of the brain Would shield them from poverty, free them from pain, Nor would 1 have sunk in the black social mire Because of poor judgment in choosing a sire. But now I am only a slave of the mill That plies and remodels me just as it will, That makes me a dullard in brain-burning heat That looks at rich viands, not daring to eat ; That lives with its red, blistered bands ever stuck Down deep in the ...

IMPORTANT NOTICE. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 July 1915

IMPORTANT NOTICE. It has been proposed by the mem bership of Local No. 2 that we, of the I.W.W., start a vigorous campaign for a six hour day. The object being 10 pay more attention to an agitation for a reduction in the working day, instead of confining our activities to generali ties. In commencing an agitation of th:s kind, we considered it necessary to communicate with all the units of the I.W.W. in Australia, with a view to getting the best results possible. While discussing this proposition, we decid ed to print a four page leaflet dealing with the question, and distribute them as widely as possible. The press Committee will take the printing of a leaflet in hand, and they estimate that they will supply Locals at a cost of about six shillings per thousand. We trust that this matter will re ceive due consideration so that we can have the leaflet printed and set In mo tion at an early date. Yours for the solidarity of the workers, F. J. MORGAN, Sec. Local No. 2.
