Our Institutions. THE SHEEP STATION. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 October 1894

Our Institutions. The Sheep Station*. The old and the new ! Ah, bless me, what a difference there is between the old order of sheep ssation and the new. I remember running a little shearing ex pedition over a score of years ago, and as I think of the round of coaching and camping experiences, the kind of relationship existing between the lads and the boss, and the nice little consideration in the shape of a cheque for services rendered, it makes me smile. The stations weren't mortgaged then, though, up to the hilt, and pastoral interests were promising. The country was good, wool a fair price, and wages satisfactory. The time of the squatter kings indeed—not bad sorts of fellows, either. But all that is altered. Those who made their piles sold out to others, who in their turn handed the profitable business to fresh hands, and so on, till tenants got hold of the acres who were bolstered up by banks and similar loaning institutions. A bad season to such men meant disaster (for had not...

Local Pars. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 October 1894

Local Pars. One hears such a lot said about democracy nowadays, and sees so many who profess to be democrats, that the easiest thing in the world would appear to be the running of a democratic paper, Strange to say, though this is a job that has always excercised the wits of those -who take it in hand, firstly because of financial difficulties, and secondly because of the lack of cohesion among demo crats themselves. Now, as a matter of fact, the Weekly Herald has made a very good start, and this in face of a good lot of opposition from certain quarters, not the least of which is to be discovered in the ranks of certain city news runners, who apparently have been advised to wash their hands of the new paper, and, of course., thereby settle its hash. Just so, but the Herald's hash isn't going to be easily settled, but in spite of the extraordinary strong ring formed by these two or three millionaires in paper, we intend to go right on. We still have some lusty-voiced and energetic ne...

AUSTRALIAN MUTUAL INDUSTRIAL UNION. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 October 1894

AUSTRALIAN MUTUAL INDUS TRIAL UNION. A new scheme is being prepared in N.S.W. which is to be called "The Australian Mutual Industrial Union." As soon as the constitution is completed it will be regis tered under the " Friendly Societies Act," and the work of enrolment will begin. Briefly stated, its object is fco insure its members against that worst of all material evils—want of employment, and therefore want of the means of earning a livelihood by honest industry. All persons—with, of course, certain obvious exceptions, male or female, may become members. Every member can hold only one share, and will be entitled to one vote. The entrance-fee is 2s. 6d.; the subscription 6d. per week. Until the funds amount to, say, £500, they will be invested in the names of trustees in the Government Savings Bank or in Govern ment securities. When the funds are suffi cient, they will be invested in any productive undertaking that can be shown to be of a remunerative character. And it is reckoned...

On the Wing. "The Country" is extremely afraid the Herald is going to shuffle off at an early uate.^ Any little thing in the undertaking line it would only he too glad to arrange for, of course. _ Surveyor-General Goyder received a nice little souvenir from his friends, the land-owners, pastoralists, &c.—one thousand guineas. Anything of this kind given to the smaller eivil fry would be deemed a tip. Criticism of the South Australian press very favorable to the Weekly Herald, with the exception of the Gauntry, whose opinion is, the reading matter is " pappy." Spiritualism unmasked. Liberal Political Association treated to a lecture on non-payment of members. The fashionable ball-room brings together the lights and shades of politics, as witness the grouping at the calisthenic entertain ment last Aveek at the Governor's residence.

BIG MONOPOLIES IN BRITAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 October 1894

BIG MONOPOLIES EN" BRITAIN. The Duke of Sutherland owns no less than 1,176,454 acres in Sutherlandshire, so that his Grace is possessed of nearly the whole county. Sir James Matheson owns 406,070 acres in Rosshire. The Daily News says that the £6,000,000 annually paid to owners of coal land is legalized blackmail. This is a strong com ment from the official organ of the Glad stcnian Party. How long will it be before the Daily News, or any other leading London daily, speaks in the same un measured terms of condeuination of all other forms of land rent? Land Reformers' Picnic. — To the Ladies' Committee of the Land Reform League belongs the credit of initiating and carrying out a very successful picnic at Go vernment Farm on Saturday last. This was a pleasant change from the propagandist meetings in the Albert Hall, and it was quite an interesting sight to notice the zest with which both sexes took part in " rounders," and how men, used to giving and receiving hard knocks on the platf...

LEGEND OF GAMMON RANGE. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 October 1894

LEGEND OF GAMMON RAJtfGE* Iii a station up North, you'll please to believe, Where blacks are not wild, but in liartnony live; Where the kangaroo hops in an ordinary way, And the squatter has lost hia absolute sway; Where birds are not songless, nor flowers without tint, And specks in the quartz don't invitiugly glint; Where the sky is not clothed in poetical hue, Nor the minder of stock wears shirts that are blue; Where chops that are grilled, and black fellows sware, With damper so hard are equally rare; In fact, where one looks seems everything queer, And, according to books, topsy-turvy appear, There's a terrible snake—such a monster 'tis said ; A gum tree but offers scant shade for its head, So the natives all say, and they of course know, For the place where it dwells they're willing to show In a range called the Gammon—110 gammon or fuu They find in the name, nor attempt e'en a pun ; But down in dead earnest they say there's a snake That a few years ago swallowed up a whole la...

Dr. Jefferis on Socialism and Trades Unions. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 October 1894

Dr. Jefferis on Socialism and Trades Unions. We are extremely glad to find that the charges recently made against ministers of the gospel, concerning their indifference to questions affecting the social life of the people, cannot with justice be sustained. At the various religious Conferences held religious teachers devote some attention to existing relationships between the various i sections of the community and between the individual and the community. Of course many of the opinions expressed at the gatherings referred to and in the pulpit are altogether at variance with the aiiU3 and ambitions of this paper- This, of coarse, we do not object to. Hostile, honest criticism is welcome; anything is better than the indifference which once characterised the attitude of the Church as a whole towards what is known as the social or labor movement. What astonishes us, and what in many instances we have to com plain about, is that many of our leading clerics consider themselves qualified t...

Round and About. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 October 1894

Round and About. [By Momus.] "We met—B. and I—positively I refuse to tongue-tangle myself any longer -with. that saw-backed appellation of my old friend—outside tlie market, and after a few minutes' consultation, got on the war patli. The evening was a gentle, pellucid Vinrl of thing, that must have made the hearts of the simple, trusting young couples who meandered down past the park lands glad. In marked contrast to the rainy, sloppy Saturdays preceding. The stars shone out, and the lights on the front doors of the pubs too, for the matter of that, in a way that put the Cor poration gas lamps to shame, and altogether left the impression on any one who knew anything about it that Wragge had arranged with the gentleman who manufactures the weather, for a small parcel of his very best. We had barely turned into the market when a small boy in knickerbockers set up a yell, and began pointing his finger at something in the road. Our eyes, of course, followed the course indexed, and I co...

UNDER THE CRUSHER. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 October 1894

UNDER, THE CRUSHER. We're a mortgage-ridden people, there can be no doubt about it. In fact, if the com munity goes on pawning its factories, churches, pubs, shops, and land at the present rate, there will soon be nothing left on which to raise the wind outside of the throttling ring of the usurer. There is one consolation, however, when the last estate has been passed through the maws of the Moloch, every other class will join in com pelling disgorgement. Perhaps the better plan would be to save what we can even now from the monopolists' capacious swallow. One way suggests itself to me, viz., by nationalising as much as we can. Of course I can hear the old wail of "freedom" and "liberty of the subject" from the other side, and, in fancy, see the political sandwich-man on the warpath ; but, as a matter of fact, it cannot be denied that the State is a better master than the individual. If too much influence is brought to bear to thwart an effort of this description, why then let the ...

Nationalizing our Duties. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 October 1894

Nationalizing our Duties. fBs" Commune Bonum.] I suppose, broadly speaking, it is the duty of the community to support all who, from causes beyond tlveir con trol, are unable to support themselves. If a person meets with an accident, is disabled, and cannot work, the community cannot decently ignore such an individual, nor allow him or her to starve or to go with out clothes because he or she is unable to earn either. The same thing may be said if the inability arises from sickness or from old age. When we consider how many people there are, both old and young, of whom it may fairly be said they are unable to pro vide for themselves food, clothing, or shelter, and that all these cases of helplessness, if not duly and properly attended to, are so many evident witnesses to our callousness as a commuuity. I think we cannot examine too closely into this matter in order to determine whether any guilt attaches to us for carelessness or indifference. There are the insane, the blind, the de...

People's Column. SHOULD CHURCHES BE EMPTY OR FULL. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 October 1894

People's Column. [Letters must be condensed, and to the, point.] SHOULD CHURCHES BE EMPTY OR FULL. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—The Rev. C. Bright preached at Norwood Baptist Church last Sunday evening on "The Forward Social Move ment." The church was crowded to excess. both aisles, entrances, and vestries being tilled by the expectant and eager crowd. The previous Sunday another high-salaried Baptist minister preached on the same subject, and his church, though more centrally situated than Mr. Bright's, was nine-tenths empty. And yet the upholders of unjust privileges and monopoly say the people do not want to hear the Gospel of Christ. They do, indeed, when they can hear it, and they honor the men who preach it fully and fearlessly. Mr. Bright's sermon was, I believe, quite "orthodox," and he never even mentioned the land tax; or, I think, not even the land question. When will those who have emptied our churches learn that live questions and living listeners •are better thau theological dea...

BIG ESTATES IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 October 1894

BIG ESTATES IN" SOUTH AUSTRALIA. Speaking of the " freehold" land at present held in South Australia by a com paratively few persons, Mr. Lake, M.P., at theBurraon March 23, 1893, said:—"At present there are 17 persons holding 1,129,988 acres, or an average of 59,584 acres each. There are fifteen who held 510,840 acres, or an average of 34,723 acres ; 26 holding 657,518 acres, or an average of 25,271 ; and 76 holding 1,074,129 acres, or an average of 14,2S3 acres. The grand total amounted to over 3,000,000 acres, or one third of the alienated lands of the colony held by 134 people." Deputy-Commissioner of Taxes (Spiller) informed Parliament on August 16 last that porsons or companies non-resident in the colony during the past three years owned one-eighth of the colony's land values, namely, £4,028,206. Doesn't this justify an absentee land tax ? - Forty-one companies, families, or indivi duals own 1,811,528 acres of "freehold" land in South Australia. These are the typical "poor far...

SOCIETY FOR THE STUDY OF CHRISTIAN SOCIOLOGY. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 October 1894

SOCIETY FOR THE STUDY OF CHRISTIAN SOCIOLOGY. At the usual weekly meeting, held on the 18th inst., at Jackman's Rooms, a paper was read on " The Churches and the Social Questions. The lecturer said the leaders of social reform contended that they were trying to bring about what was in accord with the teachings of Christ. The kingdom of righteousness, or right living, should be here and now. They taught as Christ taught—the Fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man. The real spirit of brotherhood was for the most part taught by the Church as a mere sentiment, and its worship was.too frequently a cold formalism, making a profession which was contradicted in practice. With many, religion was nothing more than a sentimental mysticism. True service was the service of humanity. Reference was made to the great Hebrew theocracy with its magnificent ritual, its priestly order, and its sacrificial rites. Here it was found that the prophets, or those who would be called revolutionists or ag...

BEING DEAD YET SPEAKETH. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 October 1894

BEINXt dead yet speaketh. : The fourth anniversary of the death of the Rev. Hugh Gilmore occurred on Wednes day, 24th inst., and it was thought no more fitting tribute to his memory could be shown and no greater pleasure given to the hun dreds who loved him in life as a pastor and Mend, than by presenting in our columns the following little collection of his tritest sayings:— Keep pure. Religion is love to men. I put Christ as the ideal life. ^Agnosticism leads to sensuousness. Give your attention to practical religion. Christ's goodness is not simply negative goodness. The curse of our present time is desultori ness. The better a man is the sooner he confesses | his faults. How little we touch the love of God ? | Indifference is not charily. Don't resist a truth because it goes against mere prejudice; or because you cannot harmonize it with your creed. Keep an open mind, and God will lead you to a fuller knowledge of His will. It is a most marvellous thing, I say, that in en—it wou...
