The Labor Party's Victory. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 22 October 1910
The Labor Party's Victory. HY II. I-:. HOLWAXI). (Atop.ek 14 has conn.' and gone, to the doleful music of the tolling of the death knell of thu Log-Irons Party of the Past and the tintinnabulations that acclaimed the triumph of the Leg-Irons Party of the Future. The Labor Partv in the State has its MA JORITY. For the better part of 20 years eveiy charge levelled by the Revolutionary Socialist*, every de mand that the Labor Party should make some show of justifyingits claim to be regarded as of the working class, has been met with the wail: ' What can we do while we're in the minor ity. Give us a majority, and then we'll show you.' Through 20 years the Labor Party has struggled to wards the achievement of that ma jority. To secure it, every working class principle has been abandoned or subordinated to the interests of the small exploiting class. The tailoresses were Hung to the sweating wolves to placate Hordern and the manufactur ing interests; the coal lumpers were deserted in a fo...

John Verran: Strikebreaker. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 22 October 1910
John Verran : Strikebreaker. Ox October 13, anniversary of the murder of Ferrer, a curious scene was being enacted in Rundle- street, Adelaide, metropolis of the State of South Australia, which has for its premier John Verran, vJornisn miner and Christian man — leader of a La bor Party Government. The laborers employed by the Neu chatel Asphalt Co. had demanded from the Co.'s manager, A.. B: Woolf, ax icxtka siiihLixG per hay, and their request had been turned down in one swift, insolent act, the Woolf mar; telling the honest workers that they were acting in a most unmanly fash ion. The men affected were, of. course, members of the United Laborers' Union — which seems to be the one union left in South Australia with a courageous kick in it. For several days the job was hung up ; but on October 14 some half-dozen (more or less) industrial derelicts were pressed into the service of Woolf. aid when they turned up to commence opera tions it w?s noted that the Labor Government had sent q...

Labor Party Methods at the Barrier [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 22 October 1910
Labor Party Methods at the Barrier ? * ? : BY A KEVOU--T1ONAKY. \ A huge crowd assembled in Argent-street on Saturday night to hear Mr. Kelly lecture on 'Socialism' from the Grand Hotel bal cony. But the lecture didn't eventuate. Noonan, the proprietor of the hotel, objected. The local Miner had printed an article from a Sydney correspondent accusing Kelly of being brought hero by the Liquor Associa tion and saying that the Liberal Party had no knowledge of his departure from Sydney ; so Kelly was simply allowed to repudiate the statements of the paper, fand in trying to do this he received a rather warm time from the crowd l-elow. After Kelly had gone, the Reds took pos session of the balcony, and told the crowd things about Socialism. Jack Flynn spoke first, and told them Socialism was the only 'way out,' The straTT-hat push hooted and jeered, and standing prominently among the shriekers we noticed Frani: Harvey, P.L.L. mayor of Broken Hill. Flynn stood to his guns, and reminded t...
The Telephone Tangle. I [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 22 October 1910
The Telephone Tangle. BY ONE WHO KNOWS. I The telephone, though a compara tively recent invention, has entered so largely into our commercial and social life that to the business world it is now quite indispensible. Never theless, unless deprived of its use by a strike of the wage-siaves that work it, the 'public' \vV\ never realise its value and necessity. From a wages point of view the telephone worker is the worst-paid individual in the community. The telephone came into practical use in Australia about the time of the great industrial upheavals and bank ing crises, when those engaging in. the industry were glad of any em ployment, and there being no scale of wages to go by, a bare existence wage was then accepted, and has since become the standard. The telephone was first introduced to Sydney as a private venture by the Stock Exchange. Its utility being proved, the Postal Department de cided to take it over and v ork it as an adjunct of the Telegraph Depart ment. There are matte...

Evolution of the Class Struggle (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 22 October 1910
Evolution of the Class Struggle NY WILLIAM II. XOYHS. - (Continued. ) We find noiv that even among those who grant that the system of capitalist produc tion has produced this distinction 'of classes, there are many' who believe, like Hubert Owen, that evils are to be overcome by means of a. universal understanding mid agreement among men. Once the truth and beauty of communal ownership be known, both classes will unite in establishing the new order. The thought will father the wish and the wish will beget the ability. For the sake of enlightening mankind as to the wonderful beauty of the new social order, Owen created New Lanark, in. Scot land, beginning January I, 1800. He saw as clearly as anyone that the cause of present social evils was the result of the existing economic system. He remarked that the ?2,o00 people who worked for him — ' my slaves,' as he called them — produced as much actual wealth for society as barely half a century before it was possible for a' popu- lation o...

Lesson Seventeen : A Last Word. IF financially you belong to the working class, and Socially you belong to the working, class, and Industrially you belong ,to the working class, and Historically you belong to the working class, and In habits you belong to the working class, and In opportunities you belong to the work ing class, and Practically you belong to the working class, and In destiny you belong to the working class, Then— Logically you — at least you — belong or ganically to the Revolutionary Socialist Party committed to those doctrines that will set you free. . We must think like men and be free or we must surrender like slaves (and union or non-union, strike or no strike) lje fore ever starved into submitting to the tyranni cal program of Capitalism.

Mental Dynamite. Lesson Sixteen : Why International Socialist Party Members pay Monthly Dues. The workingmen must be taught — (a) What their industrial wrongs are and (b) How to right those wrongs. This teaching must go on ALL the time (before and after elections) till millions of workers unite in a party of their, own class for the triumph of their own class. This consist campaign of education in volves a constant expense. The workers must pay the expenses ofthe workers' party. But the workers can't pay in big sums. They can pay in small sums. If they do pay regularly in small sums the party can go head with a steady campaign of educa tion.

Evolution ofthe Class Struggle BY WILLIAM II. XOYES. (fjonlinucd.) :?? ? . ? A:s for tlVe 'English working mini, 'always , .something practical' is his- motto, and with a true self-preservative spirit, he has built up his wonderful trade unions.; They have served their purpose, and so far as they have fostered deep fraternal and co-operative feel ing they illustrate what I have said above that 'just in proportion as the advantage of each is involved in the advantage of others, just in that proportion egoism gives place to altruism.' Trade unions are of great value to trade unionists, but their lack, now com ing to , be appreciated, is. their inadequate recognition, of the solidarity of -the- interests of. all workers. When we hear of the wonderful success of 'British trade \mions, we need to remember, too,'' that they are an ' aristocracy of work ing men,' comprising only one-fifth of the total number of workers, while in London alone 100,000 persons are supported by the 'poor rates...
