"H. G. Wells, in 'The Time Machine,' has conceived a civilization in which the workers of the world, whom he calls the Morlocks, live and work underground, while the intellectuals, who dominate them, inhabit the earth's surface. There is a continuous class struggle between the two, Mr. Welsh compares the miners ot the present-day to the Morlocks of Mr. Wells' world. In this story The Morlocks are unofficial secret organizations within the Trade Unions whose purpose is to stir up revolution. Their activities in the great miners' strike bring disastrous results".
