The Public Debt of Australasia. [FROM THE "BARRIER MINER."] [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 29 March 1895

The Pufelie Debt of Australasia. [Fkom tue " ])Auuii:i: Minsk."] Hie public debt of Australasia is in round figures nearly two hundred millions. At the eiid of 1S91 (we were then ceasing our bcrrowiug policy) it was £192,060,327. Upon 60*17 per cent, of this the interest is 4 per cent.; upon only 27 per cent, is it less than that. Reducing the entire debt to a 4 per cent, basis, we would owe £189.134,819. The anuual interest charge is therefore 4-7,565,000. That is in respect of the public debt only, and probably nearly twice as much is represented by private debts— loans, &c., to banking institutions, mort gage companies, local institutions, and the like. These latter debts do not usually carry a fixed rate of interest; but the money is invested, immediate realisation would be exceedingly d JFicult in most cas s, imme diate repayment cannot therefore be made, and hence the lender can really command at least a maintenance of the original rate of interest, notwithstanding the...

Dave Hargrave's Mission. CHAPTER VI. (continued). [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 29 March 1895

Dave Hargrave's Mission. [By Harry J. White.] CHAPTER VI. (continued). The two young people were out together for the last time, and as the young squire accompanied them the old housekeeper thought there was no harm, especially as she knew Dave was to go that day, for old Ope was expected with the trap in the afternoon. But it happened the young squire left them, and they were by themselves. A rather dangerous position, the old lady would have said, if she had seen them. They both looked a little downcast as they sat on a rustic seat under the shade of a beautiful big beech tree. The day was warm, and every thing seemed to whisper joy to the ear of   Dave. This was his last chance of opening his heart to his fair enchantress. "So I suppose we shall lose you altogether, Mr. Hargrave?" said the young   lady.   "No, oh no ! a thousand times no ! but   why call me by that name ? Call me Dave,"   he said. " Do you know I wo...

" Don't forget to let us know when you start for Australia, Dave, and we'll come and see you off," said young Berthoun. "I wish I was going with you." " Take care of yourself, my boy,': said tlie squire, " andi if at any time I can be of ser vice ta yo.u, let nie kuow." Dave wished sincerely he could take him at his word just then He shook hands all round, and his hand lingered a moment in Eva's, and a parting shaft from eye to-eve told more thau words to, the young couple. Then there was a crack of tlie whip, and the next instaut Dave -was driven from the pl...

Political and Socsal. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 5 April 1895

Political and Social. "History shows that Conservative men have never achieved great victories, either for good or evil. Why, then," should labor organizations seek for Conservative leaders, only to be patted on the backs by the enemy, monopoly aud monopoly's organs? 'God give us true men and radical ones,' should be the cry of labor, rather than ' conservative and weak.1"—Journal of the, Knights oj Labor, U.S.A.

HOMING. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 5 April 1895

HOMING. [By WlIITKCHAl'liL DiCiv.] Now a little advice re boxes for sending birds away. I would never send two birds in one box, or compartment, especially if both belong to the sinie loft. I have known them wait for each other. I have seen two birds cramped in a small box not large enough for one. The result is, after several hours' travelling, when tossed they can scarce rise. When a bird is taken out of its box each wing should be stretched open, and the beak wetted by dipping it into a bottle containing a little water. I have known good trusty birds settle and get trapped for a drink of water. My box for sending birds away contains three, compartments, lOi in. square, with four 1 in. round holes in the front of each, a slide on the top of each com partment secured by a wire, the carrying handle in the centre slide. The flyers of South Australia are at a disadvantage when sending birds by rail. Often the station master, knowing nothing of handling pigeons, and caring less, will d...

Result of the English Parish Council Elections. [FROM THE MARCH "REVIEW OF REVIEWS."] [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 5 April 1895

Result of the English Parish Council Elections. [From the Mabch "Review of Reviews."] Mr. Richard Heath, in the Contemporary Review, attempts to give us some trust worthy figures as to the result of the Parish Councils elections which were held through out England last December. He laments, in common with all those who have bestowed any attention on the matter, the imbecility with which the newspaper reports were managed, in consequence of which he is only able to give returns as to the occu pations of the new councillors for more than one-seventh of the parishes in England. ONLY A SAMPLE SEVENTH. He says:—41 The tables of statistics in this article are thus confined to those returns in which the occupations of the new councillors were given. However, they amount to 929 out of the 7,260 parishes in England and Wales electing Councils. Twenty out of forty-two English countics and Welsh divisions are represented; the counties chiefly unrepresented are those in the North of England—Yor...

Visit to Happy Valley. On Wednesday morning the last Hon. G. McGregor, M.L.C., and Messrs. T. Price, M.P., and I. MacGillivrav, M.P., paid a visit to the new reservoir which is in course of construction at Happy Valley. On arrival they went in search of Mr. Mann, the Resident Engineer, who, however, had gone to Clarendon, but no time was lost in finding Mr. O'Logblin, to whom the party reported themselves.. They were shown over the works by this gentleman, as also the water tower now in course of erection near the embankment. This piece of masonry is nearing completion, and looks very substan tial. The embankment is gradually nar rowing, but has still to be carried up con siderably higher. The party noticed that, taking the whole of the works, considerable progress had been made since their last visit about twelve months ago, and there ap peared to be a better spirit of contentment amongst the men than formerly.

Poetry. THE LANDDORD'S PRAYER. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 5 April 1895

Poetry. THE LATSTDDORD'S PRAYER. Lord, keep us rich and free from toil, For we Are honoured holders of thy soil, Which Democrats would fain despoil With glee. O Lord, our fathers got the land For serving men whom Thy right hand Had chosed to be great and grand As Kings. Tho' ta'en. by stealth, we're not to blame ; Thou know'st, O Lord, it is a shame To say to us of titled name, Such things. Lord, let us live in wealth's coutent, And peace. Lord, we are by Thy mercy meant To rule mankind, and make our rent Increase. The birds that haunt the moors and hills, The fish that swim in streams and rills, The beast that roams as Nature wills, We own. E'en, Lord, the minerals that lie Beneath the earth's periphery, Belong to us—Thou knowest why— Alone. Lord, on the ragged rabble frown, For they Are foes to us, Thy Church, and Crown ; Lord, bare Thine arm, and grind them dowi To clay. O Lord, our God, we make their laws, Which they reject with wild applause ; Be Thou a buckler to our cause And...

The Late Mr. George Clarke. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 5 April 1895

The Late Mr. George Clarke, By the death of Mr George Clarke, which occurred on Thursday, March 28, at Nor wood, after a short i.lness, the workers of the Adelaide Goods-shed lost a real friend. During the sixteen years that he held the position of foreman of the goods-shed he has had many men working under him, and to each and all he has been a true friend. Unlike many who, when thej^ rise to a position above their fellows, look down upon those whom they have passed 111 the race of life, he was always kind and con siderate to those under him, always treating them as fellow-men and equals. He never presumed on his position to treat thein as creatures of an inferior order. He was always ready to meet his fellow-workers in any way he possibly could. If any thought they had a grievance he was always willing to assist them to the utmost of his power in obtaining redress, and always ready to advise them as to the best way to proceed in the matter. His dealings with his fellows were alway...

The lecturer briefly reviewed the history of the labor colonies in Germany, which were started to provide work for the large number of men out of employment, and up to the present time they have not paid their way, nor have they been a success in providing work for those in want of it, and the class which takes advantage of them are such that the respect able mechanics will not associate with. Mr. Charleston then spoke of the work that had been done by the Royal Commission which was appointed by the Legislative Council to seek into the causes of the unemployed difficulty and report. The Commission decided not to call any one before them to give evidence because of the expense, and instead to write to prominent men and public bodies requesting them to give their opinions o...
