Working Class Electors. HERE IS A GUIDE FOR YOU. [Newspaper Article] — People — 29 June 1901
Working Glass Electors. HERE IS A GUIDE FOR YOU. The worker has rightly learnt to regard tha capitalistic press as his bitter foe, and when a thing is ad vertised and supported by that press, it's time he grew suspcious. Now, Thb People asks the working class to note the difference in treat ment meted out by that press to the Bogus Labor Party candidates I and the Socialist Labor Party can niaares. in ore, snai wniie in many instances the bogus labor Candida a is reported even mora fally than the Lee-See candidates, that the S.L.P. are suppressed in every way, and in spite of the fact that that press was inf -rmed of the electo rates the S.LP. were contesting, they for weeks bave kept the names of the S.L.P. candidates ont of their list.

The Workers' Share Diminishes. [Newspaper Article] — People — 29 June 1901
The Workers* Share Diminishes. The fact is that the wage* of labor have not risen to meet the increase in the ooat of liying. -We sea great commercial prosperity in the land, high prices for our products, a largely extended trad* abroad. The int ernational balance-sheet is greatly in our favor. But the very fact tnat prices are high makes it more difficult for working men to live ; ifc operates in the same way aa a re daction of wages. Now comes the protest of labor, the demand of liv ing wages to correspond with the cost of living. Labor's proportion ate share diminishes ; capital finds its share increasing. It is not needed for consumption, and so new factories are built and more goods purchased for workmen who cannot buy them; goods are heaped np. Then comes a ciash. During the season of depression society sup ports the poor, capitalists become relatively reduced, and surplus | goods are consumed, and things get so far righted that business starts up again, but always in such a w...
Collapse of Capitalism. FORESEEN AND FEARED BY THE NON-SOCIALIST. [Newspaper Article] — People — 29 June 1901
eollapse of Capitalism. FORESEEN AND FEABED BY THE NON-SOCIALIST. t Competition is now everywhere of the keenest, and oheapiess of production the primaiy object. The result is a race in which no com petitor can absolutely win, but one I in whioh all must in process of time utjcome exnaoBieo. ror mere is no fixed goal to be reached ; the goal flies before the runners, and the first in the raoe cannot avoid j ultimate collapse. In each coun try manufacturers compete among themselves, while tkey compete also I with their foreign rivals. Constantly improved machinery enables a larger output of less cost to be thrown upon the market, with the obvious effect now distressing everybody, of a wtll-nigh universal glnt, and a growing cheapness never before witnessed. In ihe'meautime, profit® ou capital and wages of labor are tending to the vanishing point ; aud the only question is, bow long will it be before that point is reached, ... .

a soeiALr success. THis WOMEN TRIUMPHANT. Wheh Dave Carson, Socialist and grafter, undertook to organise the women with a view to making a big effort to raise funds to aid the So cialist fight, there were not a few who predicted failure for the venture. Twaa said the women couldn't— or wouldn't— be organ ised. But Carson's energies are not limited to bill-sticking, nor are the? solely utilised in the direction of plastering Mr. Power's aggres sive supporters with good paste. Besides David bad the assistance of Bcaasi.

THE RESULT. [Newspaper Article] — People — 6 July 1901
THE RESULT. Socialists have no need to despair because of the small vote recorded in favor of the S. L. P. candidates on Wednesday last.' Trne, the vote was not bo large a% we bad anticipated; yet we Socialists are never defeated. We advance; we attack. Each succeeding attack brings ns nearer to oar ultimate goal, previously, we had in State politics no recorded vote. Now, the polling shows that- in Darling ton we bare a principle vote of 80 ; in Newtown- Cam'perdown, 24; in Lang, 34; in Wallsend, 185 ; in Waterloo, 60. That vote has been recorded under circumstances that were anything but favorable to the S. L. P. We entered the field at the eleventh hour, when every Bogus Labor candidate 1 had been selected, and when our enemies were in the thick of their campaign The Bogus party were nob slow to charge as with coming to 'split' the ' Labor ' vote, and many well meaning people, in their economic ignorance, while looking approv ingly in the direction of the 8.

As Neill spoke, the crowd con tinued to grow in numbers, until the Sooialist audience was the largest and most solid in the Do main. And again and again they applauded the clear and uncompro mising utterances of the veteran Socialist fighter, who concluded a fine speech with * peroration that called forth tbe u stinted applause of the ...
