Student or Learner
Would you tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expressions in bold in the following sentences?
You know, the ones that have baths split insults at the ones that haven’t, instead of helping them to get them – and call them the Great Unwashed (Well’s “The Fool of the Gods”)
the great unwashed = the mob. the rabble, the vulgar herd
Thank you for your efforts.

I noticed a couple of typos in your question.
Should it be spit rather than spilt?
The writer was H G Wells, not Well, and we generally cite authors and their books without an apostrophe+s so your bracketed source should read (Wells, “The Food of the Gods”)
