THE GUMBOWIE WATERWORKS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 5 April 1895

THE GUMBOWIE WATERWORKS. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—It is scarcely right to allow the general body of workers, or those who take an interest in their welfare, to be misled or belied by the actions of a few unprincipled persons, who have no other thought but for themselves. Therefore I would like to say a few words in reference to a letter which appeared in the daily papers last week com menting upon a paragraph published in your paper a fortnight since which you ex tracted from the Burra News. Now, Sir, the Burra News knows perfectly well what it says, and I am sure can support all it said in report to the Gumbowie works, as I can if necessary. The eleven men who signed the epistle in question are those who have been culled out of some forty who have been engaged on the works from Burra, and no less than six of them are single young fellows who have been kept on in preference to married men with families, and for no other apparent reason than that they have become somewhat of favorites with...

Dave Hargrave's Mission. CHAPTER VIII. (continued). [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 5 April 1895

Dave Hargrave's Mission. [By Harry J. White.] CHAPTER VIII. (continued). " I would sooner have been riddled with bullets than have lost the pleasure I found at the big hall over there. It has been an event of my life." The old man looked sharply at him. " Error I'm thinking, ye mauc. I sup pose you'd sooner stay behint if ye was but brave enough to say so."' " Stay behind! no, you don't know me yet; why, I'd sooner work my passage at the lowest billet aboard." " Arrah, bad luck to me, it's knowing ye better than that I ought to be, but are you sure you haven't got a sore heart with the young lady yonder!" " Ah, now Hope, I may feel the parting a litble, but I am looking forward to better times." " Well, we must hope so, at any rate, but it's no bad friend ye've got when ye have the ould tinker at your back, gossoon. But where is old Tom, I wonder," he added, looking round. " ISTow then, my ould slow coach, where have ye stowed that ould car case ? Are you going to kape us here in th...

Poetry. ODE TO MY BANKER. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 April 1895

Poetry. ODE TO MY BANKER. Who, when in business I began, Discussed iny every scheme and plas, And seemed the kindest sort of man ? My Banker ? Who used to know me on the street, And would my coming kindly greet Whene'er with liim I chanced to meet ? My Banker ! Who thought my sphere I should extend And gladly would " the needful" lend ? Who was, indeed, my warmest friend ? My Banker ! Who paid each cheque and met each bill, Then urged on further outlay still: Said "Look to me for what you will My Banker! Who saw afar the coming storm ? Who bade me sign a printed form ? (It was, of course, " the merest fonn") My Banker! Who, when depression *gan to lower, Forsook me in that evil hour, Yet had me safely in his power ? My Banker! Who, now the clouds more darkly loom, Calls me into his private room, And fills my very soul with gloom ? My Banker! Who, that had erstwhile talked and chaffed, And at my cautious fears had laughed, Now growls about my overdraft ? My Banker! Who nought of form...

Bootmakers' Union Smoke Social. A very enjoyable smoke social in con nection with the Bootmakers' Union was held at the Selhorue Hotel on Saturday evening. There was a large attendance of members and friends, and Mr. C. B. Brann {President of the Union) presided, amongst those present being Messrs. J. A. McPkerson and F. W. Coney beer, M.P.'s, and repre sentatives from the Journeymen Butchers' Union, Journeymen Bakers' Society, Fur niture Trade Society, Typographical Society, and the Co-operative Boot Manufacturing Society. A splendid programme was pro vided, but the principal item was the presentation of illuminated addresses to Messrs. Harry Barnett and Thomas Hawker, who until recently have occupied prominent positions on the Executive of the Union, the former having acted for ten years as General Secretary, and the latter for fifteen years as Treasurer. In proposing the health of Messrs. Barnett and Hawker, the Chair man referred in complimentary terms to the excellent services ...

The Credit Foneier in Russia. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 April 1895

The Credit Foneier in Russia. The Credit Foncier system as it exists in France in connection with advances upon farmers' land is, says the Paris correspondent of The Leader, exceeded in Russia, where monetary assistance is furnished even upon the security of the farmers' produce. The State's bank loans money on grain, flax, rape seed, and kindred produce, as set forth in the statutes. The bank lends money either directly to the cultivator or to re sponsible intermediaries. The products— grain, &e.—which is the pledge of material guarantee for the advance, can remaia j either with the borrower, with a Government j official, or in the magazine of a society, the latter based on the collective responsibility of the members; the produce can also be stored in a granary owned by any publie body, or it can be lodged in a warehouse belonging to the bank itself. The applicant fills up a paper, setting forth the amount he requires to borrow aud the nature of the produce security. If gr...

Thrift of Sailors. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 April 1895

Thrift of Sailors. Sailors are not quite so improvident as tradition represents thein. They do not squander all their money at any port their ships may happen to touch at. Prom a return issued by order of the House of Com mons, it seems that w ithin the past seventeen years considerably over two millions and a half sterling out of wages earned by seamen have been transmitted either through the post-office, local marine boards, or Board of Trade offices, to relatives at home. Of that sum £195,630 was sent between April 1, 1S93, and the end of March, 1S94. The total amount paid in the United Kingdom on money orders sent by sailors in tbirty eight years was just £12,608,690, and over £355,000 was paid in the twelve months ending March 31, 1S94. The seamen's in vestments in savings banks amount to some thing very near £85,000 a year.

Democratic Societies. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 April 1895

Democratic Societies. On Sunday evening the Hon. R. S. Guthrie, M.L.C,, occupied the platform at the Democratic Club, his subject being, " Oar Sailors." Previous to the lecture Mrs. Zadow sang " The Lighthouse," and it was well received by those present. The lec turer, in his opening remarks, said he regretted that the Queen's assent had not been obtained for the Navigation Act passed last session. In fact, nothing had been heard of it since, and it was only reasonable to infer that the reason why it had not been assented to was because it was in advance of English legislation. Under the English navigation laws a seaman was allowed 70 cubic feet of space to live aud sleep iu, while a convict in our prisons had 300 cubic feet: of space to sleep in, and during the last forty years 110 improvements had beeu made to better the conditions under which the fire men worked in the stokehole, and it was the nearest approach to slavery he hai ever seen. The engineers in control were, under the...

Gleanings. Ik the spring elections now proceeding in America the Republican party in the Wes tern States of the Union have succeeded in returning every member they nominated, thus sweeping the board. The former cor cupt administration in Chicago ljas been wholly defeated. A great sensation has been caused by the discovery of another suspected case of leprosy in Queensland. A European, aged 55, who has been for twenty-five years in the colony, and who latterly was engaged in mining, recently arrived from Norman ton with the object of becoming an inmate of the Dunwich Benevolent Asylum. He was sent to the general hospital, where the doctors declared that he was suffering from leprosy. Queensland's pet black labor scheme is already yielding a rich harvest of disease and crime. Questioned on his return to England with regard to his alleged description of Chicago as a pocket edition of hell, Mr. John Burns gave thig version of the incident:—"A gentleman asked ma what I thought of Chicago...
