Ironworkers' Strike. WHEN, rafter the formation of j the Ironworkers' Assistants S Union, the proposal to strike far \ increased wages was brought f forward, it was opposed by the 1 Socialists in the Union, who \ held that there she aid only be a I strike when there waa a strong ] probability of being successful. | rne socialist iavors ine striKe at j the ballot-box before any other. ? The proposal to strike /was car- I ried, and an ultimatum to the I masters was ordered to issue. I That was done. I At that time, we pointed to the $ | satire on the boasted good condi- i tions (claimed to have been \ brought abont by the See-O'Sul- j livan Ministry) that compelled 1 men engaged in most arduous | and oitimes dangerous toil to I cease work in order to enforce a \ demand for a miserable seven- \ shillings-a-day wage.

Hordern and Labor. [Newspaper Article] — People — 20 July 1901
Hordern and Labor. 1 Hobdbeh s fire waa the subject of diaoosrion at last meeting of Sydney Labor Council. Hr. Vernon (Laborers), saddened by this event, moved : ' That the sym p«tby_of the Ck-onoil be forwarded to ' Mr. Hordern and to the relatives of Olegg,' who waa killed, and the woncers who were thrown idle.' Mr. Watkina (Typo.) seconded, and akid Hordern was a cood fellow : he gave a donation every year to the Eight-hoar Demonstration. Then the unmusical voice of Fakir Bavister (who ran as a candidate of the Lee Capitalistic Party at the recent election) demanded : 'What about the workers 1 They should go before Hordern.' He only sympath ised with them. Mr. Thorn (Tinsmiths) oppoeed the motion, and thought it a good thing if the fire had tbe effect of bursting up Hordern's monopoly. The more com petition there waa the better for the workers. He had worked for Hor dern, and dtnied that he waa a good employer, as tbe workers were just as me^oUeaaly sweated aa elsewhere.

How to acquire Property. [Newspaper Article] — People — 20 July 1901
How to acquire Property. A plan of Lord Penrhyn's slate quarry, drawn in June, 1703, shows .a wall dividing the Penrhyn pro perty from the adjoining Grown land. A portion ? of that land is still to be seen, but instead of being the dividing boundary between Lord Penihyn's quarry and the hole doe in the mountain side by the old freeholders it stands now in the middle of the Penrhyn quarry I An elucidation of this seeming miracle was furnished in a leading article of ' The Times ' in August 1849:— 'It is said that for the last fifty or sixty years Crown , property in Wale* has been looked upon as a legitimate source of political cor ruption. We take the ohargea as we find them when we state that within that period Crown property of enormous value in North Wales has been appropriated by private individuals, with t ie privity and connivance of Crown tenants, sheriffs of counties, lords of manors, stewards of lordships, bailiffs of hun dreds, and Grown officers, who were ex-offioio guard...

MAY DAY IN ITALY. [Newspaper Article] — People — 27 July 1901
MAY DAY IN ITALY. The first of May was celebrated in Italy with more than usual ardor, for it was the first May Day of the centnry that poets and socialists proclaim belong to the workers. Special illustrated numbers of tbe socialist periodicals were pub lished ; illustrated postal cards, some symbolical, some with the portraits of the members of Parlia ment, pamphlets, and leaflets, were distributed by thousands. It is the good custom . of the Socialists of Italy to have a fore noon leoture at the hall of one of the leading labor unions in the city, and to hold their afernoon festival in the suburbs, where there is a large restaurant in some green, shady country spot, with music and speeches in the open air. Among the May Day orators were Hon. Oddino Morgari at Turin, Hon. Flippo Turati and Hon. Pierto Chiesa at Genoa, Prof. Adolfo Zerboglio at Milan, and Hon. Enrico Ferri and Saverio Merlino at Rome. At this festival the Socialists had great caase for joy, in thinking of their rap...
