WHAT IS SABOTAGE? [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 September 1915

WHAT IS SABOTACE? During the last few days, the authorities and the press have been making a great noise about 'Sabot* age.' What is Sabotage? Sabotage is the most misunderstood word in the vocabulary of the working class. Even the Socialist on many oc casions side steD. and condemn it. Yet Sabotage is a potent, an efficient, and a silent weapon. Every worker should know what it means. There are three pamphlets procurable in Australia on 'Sabotage.' 'Sabotage,' by Emile Pouget, of the Confederation General du Travail, costs 1/1 post paid. 'Sabotage,' by Walker C. Smith, the editor of the 'Industrial Work er' costs 4d. post paid. 'Sabotage,' by Elizabeth Gurley Flynn costs 4d. post free. The three will be sent post free for 1/6 by the Literature Secretary, I.W.W., Box 98, Haymarket. N.S.W.

The Growth of the I. W. W. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 September 1915

The Growth of the I. W. W. . ? 4 ? The growing influence of the I.W.W. h.is Ijjen amply demonstrated by the daily press in Australia of late. Evpry morning and evening paper has had ar tii-k's or contributions deploring tile 'tresoncc of the I.W.W. in the in dustries. Some of the slimy politicians have gone out on recruiting platforms - (imlcmning the I.W.W. As a result of tin's advertisement the I.W.W. is growing, anu it t, muueuce is spread ing everywhere. Yet in spite of all the howls of the prostitutes, the meetings of the One Dip; Union continue to grow in size, :ui(l moreover, in spiti? of the incite ments to hooliganism by the Press and the rest of the flunkeys, every meet ing is well conducted, and scarcely an iiitir.jwt.ion is ever heard. More mem l)i-is are joining up daily, and from in il.i-aiions seen, the reaction after the H'nson of artificial patriotism will be followed by a tremendous growth in the I.W.W.

Great Discovery. Sub-Leader in "Argus," 19/8/15. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 September 1915

Great Discovery. Sub-Leader in 'Argus.' 19/8/15. The police authorities are to be com mended for hav-ing attempted to d:s cover who is responsible for the mis chievous placard propaganda of the independent Workers of tha World, an American anarchist body, which is seeking to extend its influence to Australia. All the police can ao, however, .is to prosecute for neglect to affix an imprint to each poster. There should be means of proceeding against the responsible persons which are likely to have a deterrent ettect. It is illegal to use telegraph posts for bill-sticking, and the city by-laws also prohibit the disfigure ment of the streets in this way. It is for the authorities to punish per sons, if they can he detected, who are promulgating these abhorrent doctrines. If action of this kind will not suffice, it would be well, in the interests of society, to make a law to stop the offensive conduct. Free dom of speech degenerates into li cense when it permits advocacy of the destructi...

N. Z. Troubles. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 September 1915

N. Z. Troubles. At the annual meeting of the Auck land District Employers' Association, the president, Mr. E. A. Craig, during his address stated that 'business dur ing the past twelve months has been very poor. In fact some businesses are being run at a loss. Wo have been hampered in our operations by a band of organised syndicalists, who openly advocate scientific sabotage as a wea pon of the militant minority.' So, it appears that after all the trouble that the Association took to lid X.Z. of the I.W.W., and introduce — with the aid of the Social Democratic politicians and their paper the 'Maori- land Worker'— the Workers' Educa tional Association with its 'scientific management' and 'national effi ciency' economics; that there are still a number, and a growing number at that, of working men who recognise that every means is justifiable, and im perative in dealing with the masters of bread. During the big strike of 1913, many nets of sabotage took place. Some of them were done by...

Asitickleth my fancy [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 September 1915

Asitickleth my fancy — — ? — » ? By Ajax. We hear much concerning efficiency from the lower orders, but not a whis per auent maladministration from above, indeed legislatures seem more concerned coercing individuals than the administration of things. Capitalism has produced an indivi dual type supposed, to be the beau ideal of to-day. This abortion called a captain of industry is bodily far in ferior to the ancient warrior chief. Socially he is of less importance than the feudal baron. Mentally he is not an intellectual. In every respect he compares unfavourably with the rulers ofthe past, liven the masses who ac   quiesce in the domination of a superior individual instinctively surmise this modern type fails to fit the bill. Even the workman sees that the capitalist owes his position to wealth and oppor tunity. Moreover, financiers belong to an effete and declining class. Notice how hysterical the commer cial press becomes over a few hundred soldiers lost in battle, ye...

The Editor "Direct Action." [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 September 1915

The Editor "Direct Action.'" Fellow-worker, — Per medium of "Direct Action" insert this motion passed at a fully representative gathering of the Boulder Local, No. 6, of the I.W.W., duly moved, seconded, and carried. "We demand, in the name of the working-class, a fresh and impartial trial of our fellow-worker, Joe Hill, now lying in Salt Lake City jail, Utah, and incarcerated at the be- hest of the capitalist-class of Ame- rica, for a crime of which he is en- tirely innocent. Until this request for a new trial is granted, we, the working-class of Australia will in stitute boycott of all American goods." Workers of Australia, take notice ! (Sgd.) M. SAWTELL, Sec., Treas., Local No. 6, Boulder, W.A. Now that the winter is over, and the worst season is passed, it is up to the organisation to clear off the forty pounds owing on the Press.

Our Labor Party. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 September 1915

Our Labor Party. The Labor Government is on the verge of passing a bill to protect the contractors against loss due to the un steady condition of the market. If a contractor 'puts in a -tender 'for a job based upon current prices of materials, and if during thfi -time required to complete the contract- materials should increase ton per cent., they can recover the loss by making an application to a Judge of the Supreme Court. It seems strange that the Labor Ministry should be so eager, to protect the capitalists against loss due to the unsteady nature of a war-disturb^J market, without at tho same time dropping a hint to the effect that the workers should be protected from an increase iu the cost of living. Up to Id ate nothing has happened iu the dir ection of increasing wages. Evidently our dear Labor Party have forgotten that the workers are bound down by contracts that extend over a period of years, and that the wages they are to receive for this long period arc based 011 prices ...

Melbourne Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 September 1915

Melbourne Notes. Tho Local here is just now becoming a forco to bfi reckoned with, especially by the capitalist press. The 'Argus' has devoted much space on it's front pages to advertising the I.W.W.. which they describe as an Anarchist body establishing itself in Melbourne, and urges that free speech should be denied us because we advocate the smashing of the existing order. The 'Age1' also has yelled with righteous indignation at the audacity of the I.W.W. telling wage slaves to go slow on the job. They describe us as 'An evil movement.'' Our thanks' goes out to the editors of both the yellow jour nals for their statements, which are , mostly true. Wo regret having lost the invaluable services of F. W. Hancio. His energy and devotion to the movement will !-& hard to replace, but our loss .will be Sydney's gain. F. \V. Kelly, late of Adelaide, lias conic back to harness again after a brief spell, having had a lot of trouble with his throat. F.W. Alf. Wilson has arrived back...

Barker's Arrest. Prussianism Right Here FIGHT IT ON THE JOB. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 September 1915

Barker's Arrest, Prussianism Right Here FIGHT IT ON THE JOB. 'Thoso whom the gods would des troy, they first make mad.' The rul ing class of this country, and by that we include those human abortions known as 'Labor1' Ministers, are rid ing lor a ran. The latest outrage, to be written in j- letters of fii'e in the annals of the so ralled Labor movement of this country, is the arrest and imprisonment of the editor of this paper for the heinous crime of calling upon the capitalist class to set nn example, to their slaves and go and fight in the trenches. The presiding magistrate, true to his class, this instinct, and his training, marked - his appreciation of the unparalleled enormity of this offence by refusing to grant bail ; and with that characteristic .! lovo of justice so common to capital ist henchmen, punished the offender , before trial by remanding the case for eleven days. ;.

A Union Man. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 September 1915

A Union Man. '.Are you a union man,'' said a .smiling young lady to an applicant for work at one of the Commonwealth offices in Sydney last_ week. 'Yes, all nsy iit'e,' indignantly replied the horny handed* son of toil. -''Will you show nit* your card. jj-Jease*?' ejaculated tie smiling damsel, playing with', 'her pen. ??J. have, not got it with me,' said the jobless slave. '-'It is in my swag.' 'I'm sorry, -: replied the registration dork, 'but I cannot put your name down unless you produce a card.' The i-udo man then nsked the Miss if she had a card, but the question remained unanswered. Another slave then presented him self for examination. Before be had time to prove his loyalty to the prin ciples of unionism, lie was tapped upon the shoulder and asked to remove his hat. Thinking that ho would need si cool head to got through the ordeal, he shifted his lid and stood under the electric fan. His pockets then spewed U2') a bundle of union cards, all sizes and colours.

Trouble and Strife. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 September 1915

Trouble and Strife. Trouble, strife and discontent exist here at Canberra, and the local craft union seems incapable of dealing with disputes that arise. The tactics of the union are obsolete, and are not unlike those of a quack doctor who prescribe-.. for liis patients on the principle, that if they get bettor they pay him well, if they die their heirs pay double. Most of the workers favour the idea of aendingi deputations to the boss and telegrams to politicians. This idea is played out, and should give way to scientific methods which the I.W.W. is endeavouring to promote amongst the boneheads. Don't rely on the ballot box and politicians ; you will never get anything from them except talk. Liberal and Labour are both tarred with the same brush, as you will see by a telegram, which the local secretary of the R.W. and G.L.A. received from the Minister for Home Affairs. How it came about was like this: The secretary wrote to Archibald tailing him of the victimisa tion taking place. ...
