Broken Hill. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 29 October 1910
Broken Hill. The former membership of the Barrier Socialist Group was practically boycotted off the Barrier. Of the original members there are only two or three now left. But the growth of Socialist knowledge proceeds apace and the splendid work of Tmk Intkiixatioxai, Socialist besrins to imicmco resu'i.«. On Saturday evening, at the Criterion Hotel, a meeting of the revolutionary work ing-class element of Broken Hill was held, and it was decided to reorganize the Barrier branch of the S.F.A. .J. J. O'Reilly was elected chairman, and E. V. Cugan secre tary. It was decided, if possible, to imme diately procure a mom and start, an econo mic class, and also to sell literature at union meetings. Unfortunately, we shall not lie able to hold open-air meetings just yet, on account of lack jf speakers. There is a big den land for wage-slaves here just now, and any of our comrades who can speak, and who arc unemployed, might do worse than come this way, if they are able to do the laborious w...
The A.S.E. and the Labor Party. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 29 October 1910
He A.S.E; and the labor Party. Phior to the recent elections inN.S.W., tli,. A.S.E. sent to a ballot the question of strik ing a levy on members to support two A.S.K. men who were running as Labor Party can didates. Out of a 2000 membership only 2(-7 voted, and of these i.6i were lor tne levy, and 130 against. The executive, on the casting vote of the chairman, decided to en force the levy, and the result is that discon tent inside the A.S.E. is seething almost tn the point of disruption. Many member? positively refuse to be. coerced into' paying into the funds of a middle-class political party. One member has sent the following clear-toned letter to his branch executive: 'Secretary, No. 3 Branch, A.S.E. — Sir. — Re levy for supporting Labor candidate. A. B. Dawson and E. R. Whereat, I desin to give notice that I cannot as a Socially logically support, either financially or other. wise, the candidature of any Labor member. '1.

The Telephone Tangle. H. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 29 October 1910
The Telephone Tangle. BY ONE WHO KNOWS. II. The conditions of the male attendants are quite as bad. The staff is insufficient, and at the present time TEN YEARS. of days in lieu of holidays worked are owing to. the staff — that is, for working on Sundays and holidays. There is an insufficiency of plugs — only ten pair to each 100 subscribers, so that at most only 20 per 100 can be accom modated at one time. And the public- blame the attendants for inattention when they make calls. Another grievance of the senior male at tendants is that they cannot get away to the workshops when their turn comes for promo tion, as there are none of the juniors capable of working junction board positions, and the seniors are kept on the board, although the Commissioner will not increase their salaries above £110. He classifies the work as that of 'boys.' To overcome this difficulty, fitters were taken on, and examinations held for junior fitters at £(-0 per annum (28s per week) , ages l'i to 21 years...
Bernard Shawisms. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 29 October 1910
Bernard Shawisms. Eveky genuinely benevolent person loathes alms-giving and mendicity. : Home is the girl's prison and the woman's workhouse. Civilisation is a disease produced by the practice of building societies with rotten ma terial. .' ' ' ' We are told that when Jehovah created the world he saw that it was good. What would he say now? The conversion of a savage to Christianity is the conversion of Christianity to savagery. Those who admire modern civilisation unsually identify it with the steam engine and the electric telegraph. Those who understand the steam engine and the electric telegraph spend their lives in trying to replace them with something bet ter. Decadence can find agents only when it wears the mask of progress. In moments of progress the noble succeed, because things are going their way; in mo ments of decadence the base succeed for the same reason; hence the -\yorld is never without the exhilaration of conte.mnomrr success. If the wicked flourish and the fittest...

During the Bundle-street strike the Govern ment gave their consent to a. virulent at tack of Wadcism in its worst form. On the Itfth ins'ant, when the 'scabs had just started work, the police persistently endea vored to cause trouble amongst the strikers. Bv sneers, bv pushing and 'elbowing the men, and by various other methods, the/ tried to enrage the strikers into committing some offence to justify the tools of capitalism in arresting them'. The strikers were suc -TE?fnl in getting -seven of the scabs not to start work, and this 'evidently annoyc-lsuch friends of Master as the police have always proved themselves to be. At noon when the scabs were beaten, as they could not get carters to cart the necessary material, and had to cease work, the contractor and the police evidently decided on some revenge, Hence, instead of the. scabs being conveyed the ...

THE TWINS. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 5 November 1910
THE TWINS. Know ye the fate of (lint unhappy Twin Who, to liis brother bound by dually tie Unseverable, woke one day to find That brother dead, and felt himself alive? And how, in frightful company with Death, He died of an unutterable fear? There be two other twina of ancient race, Body and Mi. id, bound by like fatal tie; Ordained to walk through life with equal step, And under pain most horrible condemned. To leave the world together, even as They entered it. AVoe to the longer-lived! Woe to the Body when the Mind haa fled, Poor helpless clod, that knows not where to turn! But worse the fute of the imperious Mind, Born to create, to soar, and to command, That wakes one day and finds its brother dead, And calls upon him vainly to arise; Bound to a corpse, it feels the thrill of life. ^ ? — EciiUNK Lku-Ha.mii.tox.

Authority. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 5 November 1910
Authority. nv a.iax. 1-lmiKiiTO the history of mankind lias been the record of the dominion of a few; individuals over the many. In all ages.and'in all countries -we find the predominant feature of social organisations. ' Institutions' and per sons sometimes trading under the name of religion or the divine right of kings have set up as the supreme dic tator of man's actions and thoughts. The individual from the cradle to the grave is taught obediem e to authority in every sphere of life until one is led to believe this universal law of authority is a natural one and as .un changeable as the laws of the uni verse. Authority rests on the. ownership of social utilities, and has -nearly al ways been upheld by mental and physical force; .and, so unnatural and artificial is this law that we find, in all ages men have risen in rebellion against the domination of man. From a scientific standpoint, individual authority is in direct con tradiction to the laws of nature; and man alone of all t...
