HOW TO TAKE CARE OF A HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 October 1894

HOW TO TAKE CARE OF A HOUSE. To knock out the inside of a house, and stall leave the outer shell standing, requires judgment; and to have the interior look presentable up to the last day of tenancy, and yet to bring it to such an actual condi tion that the moment the furniture is out it will appear like the blackened wreck of matter, is a problem for a tenant's highest skilL To do the -worst for a house that can be done is an art which is given to but ninety nine tenants out of a hundred; but the hundredth man should not, therefore, despair of bringing his landlord out behind over the lease. The tenant should remember that lie can always be doing something. Let him scratch his windows with his diamond, or drive nails. If at times he is too weary for these active aggressions, let him lean his oiled head against the wall-paper and go to sleep. I have known tenants who, even if they fell out of bed at night, would contrive to loosen the plastering. Exercise your faculties in thinking o...

From the "Review of Reviews." [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 October 1894

From the " Review of Reviews." The New Zealand Land for Settlements Bill is a measure of great importance, and represents, perhaps, the high-water mark in what may be called " socialistic" legisla tion. The Bill gives the Minister power to spend £250,000 per annum in the compulsory purchase of large estates for settlement pur poses. The land is to be subdivided into small blocks and let on leases ill perpetuity, at a rental of 5 per cent, on its capital value. The Bill forbids any citizen owning more than 5,000 acres of pastoral land or 1,000 acres of agricultural land; within five miles of a city no individual can liold more than 500 acres. The Bill has passed the Assembly, and is accepted by the Upper Chamber as reflecting public opinion, and therefore entitled to become law. The number of men in South Australia classed as " primary producers," i.e., " engaged in cultivation, &c.," is actually less by 73 in 1S91 than in 1SS1, but a batta lion of females 632 strong lias bee...

Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 October 1894

Notes. [By Phillibustee.] Tlie Herald has been issued, and the hope of every democrat in South Aus tralia will be I am sure that its influence may be felt for good, near and far. May its shadow never grow less, say I. Its success or otherwise now depends on its shareholders, entirely. I say entirely, because the whole responsibility of management rests upon them, that ex cellent measure the referendum having been introduced into the government of the Company. They and they alone, on the one-man-one-vote principle, will be able to alter its policy or its management, and it will say little for their intelligence if they let influences creep in that will bring about failure. But no fear need be felt on that score. Every shareholder, however, must be prepared to sacrifice a little. Calls must be paid promptly, for it cannot be supposed that the sheet is going to pay its own way right from the jump. There is no jobbing office to feed its coffers, and its price has been made low to ensure...

An Experience. [BY ONE OF THE UNEMPLOYED.] [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 October 1894

An Experience. [By One of the Unemployed.] The unemployed difficulty it seems to me is becoming more and more acute, and is eating into the vitals of every kind of work, educated and uneducated. All classes of toilers are being made to feel the iron hoof of enforced and unprofitable idleness, or the terrible uncertainty and spoliation of wage earning. My own experience has been a trying one. But perhaps for the benefit of those uncharitable and prejudiced indivi duals who pretend to believe that dissipa tion is more or less the cause of individual distress, I may state that I am a teetotaller, non-smoker, and a regular attendant at a place of worship. Yet with all these virtues, together with a bundle of the most exceptionally good references, I have found that the best bind of engagement I can get is a few hours manual toil—to which I am not used — barely sufficient to keep the wolf from the door. Those to whom I have told my sad tale seem to think I»am an un grateful fellow for no...

Parliamentary Mems. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 October 1894

Parliamentary Mems. [By Gallery Max.] In spite of the stonewallers and of an almost unprecedented obstruction of the public business, the following statement shows that the present Government have done good work. First and foremost the finances have been ably managed, and this just now is the crux of politics in all the colonies. The ex penditure shows (allowing for the sum of £53,000 paid off the public debt in advance of the payment on that amount during the previous year) a decrease of £188,000 upon the expenditure of the Downer Government. It is many a long year since the departments have been run on such economical lines. This has required courage and experience in administration. The Country party know that no other combination in the present Parliament could have done such work in this direction. We have tabulated the pro posals of the Government as announced in the policy of June 27, 1893, and also those of them which have been carried, as well as other measures not specific...

Trades Unionists Read. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 October 1894

Trades Unionists Read. At a large and influential public meeting recently held in Sydney Mr. Medway Day charged the Pastoralists' and Employers' Union with conspiracy of the most unmanly kind. He said "that he must ask the audience to go back for about five years, when a definite plan of campaign was agreed upon by the combination of capitalists known as the Employers' Union, the Pas toralists' Union, &c. _ That plan was pub -8§fedak4kg^iffie^sii since—and it has never 'been challenged. It read as follows:—" Plato to overthrow the combination of labour and Unionism for the universal advancement jf the workers. To obtain co-operation of the various Australian Governments with a view to enable the Australian employers of labour to enforce all or any agreed terms by force of arms. To enforce through Government, freedom of contract, by the force of law and order. The maintenance of high standard of wages as applied to shearers and others until such times as the Unions agree to r...

SYDNEY COMPOSITORS' STRIKE. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 October 1894

SYDNEY COMPOSITORS' STRIKE. The latest telegrams convey information that the Master Printers have decided not to entertain any overtures from the Typo graphical Society; they even go so far as to refuse to submit the matter to a Board of Arbitration. This course is much to be regretted, as the men all along have been anxious to have both sides of the question discussed. The facts of the case are that at the time the proposal of reduction -was first laid before the Typographical Associa tion the members were fighting a 10 per cent, reduction of the minimum rate at McCarron, Stewart, & Co.'s in conformity with a resolution from the Master Printers, February, 1893, to maintain the minimum, and it was considered almost hopeless to entertain a proposal of a reduction of 16§ per cent. The issuing of agreements to be signed by members (which is contrary to the rules of the Association) was the only intimation received. Con flicting statements as to the number of men out have been r...

Round and About. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 October 1894

Round and About. [By Mosius.] " One half the world doesn't know how the other half lives," says Spokeshave, or someone or other of the writers of quality ; while another scribbler, of the bilious sort, ventures an opinion that the biggest half of the people are knaves, or was it fools. A pretty kettle of fish surely! Still, my masters, there are some very good fellows abroad, and one of them I recently rubbed shoulders with, just tbe kind of man the world wants — something more than the ordinary " good sort of man" who is to be continually met with in valedictory and obit, notices. The sort of man rather that the world wants; but, nevertheless, won't have. Something paradoxical here, but its a fact. Poor old Blobbs ! The world has treated him very badly. Perhaps his mis fortune laid in his name ; even as he said, " it was quite sufficient for it to be men tioned to ensuve any hope that he had in all life's relationships, to be deferred even to the point of heart sickness." Yet the o...

United Trades and Labour Council. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 October 1894

United Trades and Labour Council. The usual fortuightly meeting of the Council "\vas held at the Selbornc Hotel on Friday evening, October 5. There was a good attendance of delegates, and the Vice President occupied the chair. Before commencing the ordinary meeting a special call of the Council was held for the purpose of confirming an alteration of rule 14, carried at the previous meeting, pro viding for the retirement every half-year of one-half of the members of the Parliamen tary Committee.

Meeting at Petersburg. LAND VALUES ASSESSMENT ACT, 1893. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 October 1894

Meeting at Petersburg. LAND YALTJES ASSESSMENT ACT, 1893. Fob some time past there has been a desire on the part of many of the rate payers in the Petersburg Corporation to bring the Land Values Assessment Act of last session into operation in that municipality. With this view a strong effort is now being made to obtain an early decision by the ratepayers, and as Petersburg will be the first Corporation in South Australia to attempt to give effect to the principle of the Act, viz., giving to municipal bodies, shculd the ratepayers so desire it, power to raise a part of their revenue by a tax on the un improved land values within their muni cipaiities, the experiment will be watched with great interest throughout the colony. Under the present system, if a man im proves his holding by building on it, he is immediately taxed on its increased improved value, and the better the house he builds, the higher his taxation. Several meetings have been held at which the matter has been freely d...

RACING. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 October 1894

RAGING. Un iuesday afternoon the JLown Mall banqueting-room was packed by a miscel laneous gathering of sporting men, the occasion being the disposal of Mr. John Crozier's racing stud and stables at Glenelg. But as far as actual business was concerned, the proceedings were a complete farce, the crowd being evidently of the over-cautious, or, most likely, stone-broke persuasion. I am glad that Mr. Crozier's retirement from the turf will only be temporary, and hope that on his return he will have another horse as good, if not better, than the once popular idol, Vakeel. Owing to the inclement weather on the 6th the S. A. Tattersall's Club meeting had to be postponed to Saturday afternoon, and all things being favourable there will be a good attendance on the Old Course to morrow. Racing starts at 1.45, and the following are my selections :—Hurdle Race— Blacklock, Barter. Selling Race — The Gardener, Harold. October Cup — Lord Grenville, Hamlet. Handicap Steeplechase —Strike, Prosper. J...

Poetry. SPREAD THE TRUTH. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 October 1894

Poetry. SPREAD THE TRUTH. Brave the auger of the wealthy! Scorn their bitter, lying spite! Tell the Truth in simple language, when yon know that you ave riglit! And they'll read it by the slush-lamps in the station huts at night. I have seen the People's triumph in the visions of my dreams; It is pictured by the camp-fires, down the lonely western streams, And the teamsters talk about it as they tramp beside their teams. Write the truth in simple language, and you shall not write in vain I Sing a ringing song of freedom, and you'll hear the same refrain Where the horsemen ride together, far across the western plain. Write of wrongs that you are hating with the grand old burning hate! For the lonely digger reads it when the western day is late, And he marks it in the paper he is sending to his mate. Spread the Truth in simple language when you feel it in your breast ! It will reach the far selections in the wild Australian west, Where the buskmen yarn" together on % sunny day of rest...

WHAT HE THOUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 October 1894

WHAT HE THOUGHT. The wearisome monotony of the school room is sometimes enlivened by the comical notions evolved from childish brains. A schoolmistress tells the following from her experience:— " The scholars I had were most of them farm labourers9 children, and some of them were a little slow of comprehension. One day, in geography class, I explained at great length all about the cocoanut-tree. I noticed that one of my urchins looked in credulous, and so, when he slowly put up Ms hand at the close of the explanation, I asked him what he wanted. With an ex pression of great anxiety on his face, he asked:— "'Doegcocoanuts really grow ou trees?' tc' Why, of course, Jacob,9 I answered. * Where did you think they grew ?9 " * Why,' 6aid he, gravely, * I thought the paonkeys laid'em,'"

Something About the Drink Question. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 October 1894

Something About the Drink Question. 1 j After all, what a grand tiling it is to have a free-spoken Press—honest and sturdy. No trouble about giving offence either to this class or the other, religious or secular, clergyman or brewer. Such a privilege I believe the people have got in the Weekly Herald. Hence I take this opportunity of chipping in on that much-mauled and mis understood drink question. 1 am net going to heave at it though in any bigoted way, but am just going to gather together a few thoughts and get them put in cold type, for readers to do what they like with—read or reject. I must confess till lately I was very severely prejudiced against the question, and became so aelf-opiuioned that I really would not argue with tha*.other side at all. However, I am wiser now, and consequently ready to acknowledge I made many erro neous deductions from the arguments of the teetotal party, to which I belong even now. Yes ! I am an abstainer, and for that matter would like to see ev...
