'Truth' Trounces Trogolodytes PERNICIOUS POSTERS. Loyalty of our Legislators. The Doctrines of the I.W.W. Hon. J. D. Fitgzerald Challenges Pos ter-Pasters. To Preach Their Creed in any Work shop. What a fatal facility these politi cians have. If they would only act as strenuously as they talk, they might achieve something, that is, providing their actions were marked by some in telligence, a characteristic usually missing from their talk. Judging by a debate in the Legislative Council one night last week, the elderly occupants of that Chamber would appear to bo under the impression that the great war is to be won — or lost — by words. They worked themselves up to a pitch of fury over a poster that had been taokod up somewhere. They de nounced it as a document designed to militate against recruiting. We really cannot see what there is in the poster to create such consternation. It re minds capitalists, parsons, politicians, landlords, and newspaper editors that they are needed in the...

SYDNEY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 September 1915

SYDNEY NOTES. Uio propaganda oi this Local has been well sustained oi late. tstroet meetings have been very successful, and while literature sales have not been so good as formerly, the sales of 'Direct Action' are on the up-grade. As a result of the siily and foolish , attacks urjou the I.W.W. many queries have come to hand from various parts of the Commonwealth enquiring for in- U ' formation aneut this organisation. Thus do the politicians help to create tlie power that will deprive them of their nice easy billets. ilrs. Paul recently spoke in the Hall on 'Conscription' to a very large and 3 appreciative audience. Ou the following Sunday M. G. Victor Hugo lectured upon 'Astronomy and its relation to Human Struggle.' The lecture was very interesting, and evoked a good deal of discussion. It is within the realms of possibility that F.-W. King will visit the railway construction camps within tho next few days at Alpine, Picton, «tc. F.-W. Rancie will be up froni Melbourne, and plans...

BRISBANE. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 September 1915

BRISBANE. It is coming, it is coming, Farting crown and crashing throne ; And the workers march in triumph, Take possession of their own. Poets are usually optimistic. It must be consoling to the capitalist class of Queensland to know that work ers here have no intention at present of taking possession of their own. Things are not too good just now. Work is scarce, and many are being forced at the point of starvation to enlist, which is perhaps what- is in tended. Some of our fellow workers have gone North to the sugar. Conse quently we have lost several able speakers. Our Sunday evening lec tures are being temporarily suspend ed in favour of the Anti -Conscription meetings held in the Trades Hall. Good attendances are the rule, and strong feeling is manifest in Labor circles generally against any attempt to force an alteration of the constitu tion in favour of the master class. I.W.W. posters and stickers are be ing put to good use. Fine work is be ing done by general and literatur...

Australian Workers Attention! [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 September 1915

Australian Workers Attention! -? ?— ? v -???- It has been the curse of the Labor movement in the past that it has nev er realised, except in an occasional hazy manner, that the interests of tho working class of all countries are iden tical. In the future the workers will have to act as a class in order to compel the ruling class to coase their persecutions and tyranny towards members of their class. men of the working class army rotting within the gaols of the United States for organising and standing by the principles of their class jn the hours of struggle and strike. At Folsom Gaol in California, two men, Ford and Suhr, members of the I.W.W., are un dergoing a life sentence on a rigged ii]} charge of murder because they were instrumental in organising the workers on hop ranches two years back.

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

The I.W.W. Preamble. The working class 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 the world organise as a class, take possession of the earth and the ma chir- ery of production, and abolish the wage system. We find that the centreing of the management of industries into fewer and fewer hands makes the trade unions unable to cope with the ever-growing power of the employing class. The trade unions foster a state of affairs vah\ch 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 common with their employers. These conditi...

The propaganda m the sugar lields and mills of the North is beginning to have a very marked effect.

THE MIRACLE OF THE DOG'S TAIL. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 September 1915

THE MIRACLE OF THE DOC'S TAIL. Once upon a time, in the State of Vermont, there lived two peddlers of two different brands of salve. Both of these peddlers loudly proclaimed that his particular make of salve was the most wonderful salve in all creation. One day, in the market place of a bmall village, one of the peddlers, who owned a dog, cut off a piece of his I dog's tail, and, in order to show the I marvellous efficacy of his salve, ap I plied some of it to the stump of his I dog's tail ; with the effect that the dog I immediately grew his tail on again.
