Labor Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 April 1895

Labor Notes. A BALMT of Newcastle miners has re sulted in favor of a general strike. A Labok Bureau to assist women to find employment has been established hi New Zealand under Mrs. Neil], a factory in spector. Sevents' men in the New South Wales Works Department are to be retrenched, and a large number in the Postal Depart ment. More unemployed. The Metropolitan Board o£ Works, Mel bourne, have decided by 17 to 15 " That a minimum rate of wage be paid in connection with all contracts let by the Board." The Miners' Federation of Great Britain proposes to inaugurate a purely labor paper in that country, as neither Liberal nor Tory newspapers give the workers justice during disputes. In the days of John the Baptist if a preacher preached the whole, unsoftened truth, and applied religion to practical life, they cut off his head. In these days they cut off his salary. The new plan is as efficacious as the o\d, and avoids funeral expenses. The following regulation has been gazetted by th...

General News and Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 April 1895

General News and Notes. The Queensland kidnapping cases have ended in a verdiect of " Not guilty, but don't do it again." The black " boys" who liave been brought from their islands against tueir wisli are to be taken back at the cost of the charterers of the vessel which brought them. The Irish Land Bill h\s passed its second reading iu the Commons without a divi sion. The London bankers are combining to form an Anti-Bimetallist League, which makes it appear that there is some good in bimetallism. Bridget Cleary has been burnt to death for witchcraft in Tipperary. Education has not yet had ail opportunity of doing its full work iu Ireland. The Kingston-Turner controversy with reference to the proposed ifew Zealand treaty forms a very interesting display of official slanging, but it is not likely to result in a largely increased feeling of friendship between the colonies. The \oung Patriots, who were per* sistcutly opposed to woman's suffrage, have resolved unanimously, and with muc...

Current Topics. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 April 1895

Current Topics. Another Libel Action.—Yesterday pro ceedings were commenced at the instance of Mr. J. L. Parsons against Mr. T. Price, M.P., and Mr. J. L. Bonython, proprietor of the Advertiser, to recover £490 damages in respect to certain statements alleged to have been made by Mr. Price at the historical Mitcham meeting, and published iu the Advertiser. Our Public Schools.—There is a great deal of dissatisfaction among public school teachers with reference to the eternal system of cramming insisted on by the department iu order to secure satisfactory results—on paper. The life of some teachers is little better than slavery. We hope to have something more to say oil this matter shortly. The Hospital Commission.—The pro ceedings of the Royal Commission appointed to enquire into matters counected with the Adelaide Hospital are creating an extra ordinary amount of interest, the public attending in large numbers every day.

New Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 April 1895

New Australia. The following extracts are made from a letter written from New Australia by Mr. Frank Bilks (formerly of Adelaide), and dated from Colonia Cosmo :—" 1 cau assure you our highest expectations have been gratified. We managed to get good land just in time to clear the trees roughly off eaough to get crops in for the coming year (1S95.) These crops are now coming on well, vegetables we have in abundance, and in a month or two will be living on our own production entirely. The maize {which stands S and 9 feet high), mandioea, beans, aud potatoes all give promise of yielding heavy crops. As for meat, we've all turned vegetarians, and find we cau live and work just as well without the meat. At preseut we have half a dozen bullocks to spare; we're killing one a month. We have a good supply of milk, and maizemeal takes the place of oatmeal. To say we shall soon be reduced to the level of the natives is the same as if somebody was to say that you people in Woodville would soon ...

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE: APRIL 12, 1895. OUR AIMS. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 April 1895

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE : APRIL 12, 1895, OCTfi AIMS. With the present issue the Herald enters upon the second half-year of its existence, and although its career so far has not been entirely free from trouble, we are glad, to say that it is steadily gaining ground, and asserting its claim one of the factors in moulding public opinion and leading public thought. With the present issue, too, a change has been made in the occupancy of the editorial chair, and some apology is due to our readers for the shortcomings that will doubtless be noticeable as a result of the hurried work necessit ated by this change. The gentleman who has recently occupied the position of Editor has carried out his j duties under %ery great disadvantages, I but with a degree of success that will be gratefully acknowledged by all who are interested iu the welfare of the journal. We hope to be able in the future to maintain the high standard of excellence already attained, and to follow the excellent example...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 April 1895

TO COM! ESPOND ENTS. We shall be glad to receive from secre taries of democratic aud Liberal organisa tions in all parts of the colony brief reports of progress, either for our own information or for publication, as we may think desir able. All communications, whether in the form of reports or of letters for our open columns, should- .be brief and pointed, and must be verified.by the name aud address of the writer. We have received a communication on the " New Social Era," which is too long for insertion, but from which we may make ex tracts as opportunity offers. Another long letter, by "A. L.," deals with a subject which we think it would be unwise to dis cuss at present, although to a large extent we agree with the writer's views.

THE NEW GOVERNOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 April 1895

THE MW GOVERNOR. Tnfc Government and people of South Australia have been subjected to a dis tinct and unqualified insult in connection with the appointment of a new Governor. It will be remembered that some time ago a request was made by the Govern ment for "an early intimation when any fresh vice-regal appointment is contem plated, in order, if so desired, that the matter may be again submitted for Imperial consideration." The object of this was to prevent any aristocratic dunderhead who might be in need of a lucrative situation from being foisted upon us. Later on Mr. Playford, acting upon instructions received from the Government, requested the Secretary of State for the Colonies to allow His Honor Chief Justice Way to hold the position for a considerable time before another appointment was made. The object of this was to save, in the present depressed condition of the public finances, as much as possible of the cost connected witli the Governor's position. Both of these requests...

THE PASTORAL QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 April 1895

THE PASTORAL QUESTION. The timely utterance of tlie Commis sioner of Crown Lands at tlie meeting of the Australian Natives' Association on Monday evening was one of the most clear, forcible, and exhaustive exposi tions of the whole question of pastoral legislation in South Australia that his been made. Although the company was a representative one, and included several pastoralisis and others directly interested in pastoral pursuits, we cannot but regret that the statement was not made in a larger building and before a greater number of taxpayers, to whom the ques tion is one of Tital importance. Mr. Gillen shirked uo aspect of the question, but going back to 1883 he traced the his tory of pastoral legislation step by step, showing how concession after concessiou had been made and privilege after privi lege granted, right down to the Bill of last session, which was thrown out by the pastoralists themselves, because they still hungered for further advantages. The charge that the Gove...

SIGNS OF THE TIMES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 April 1895

SIGNS OF THE TIMES. TO THE EDTTOR. Sir—The time has arrived when all wage earners should pause and ponder a little over the industrial signs of the times. The inordinate greed for money, and the power and will to concentrate it is, I think, getting just a little too intense. The decay and j damprot of poverty and squalor caused by I financial scheming and capitalistic lnanoeuv- j ring, so long as it stuck to tlie levels of the i manual toiling class, called forth little ! sympathy or interest from the majority of 1 people (more's the shame), but now that the i same dauiprot is rising and permeating the finer classes of labor, and even the " pro- | fessions" and commercial enterprise, it surely is time that an examination into the cause of the all-depressing and corroding damprot should generally take place. The concentrating of money exchange, the dis- I placement of hand labor by machinery, the saving of wages, the flooding of labor markets, keen competition, &c., it seems ...

BETTERMENT OF THE MASSES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 April 1895

BETTERMENT OF THE MASSES. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—Just at the present the air seems full of the above theine. Organisations of diffe rent kinds are getting on the track in appa rent earnestness to better the condition of the masses, but notwithstanding all the schemes and opinions advanced, the fact remains that the condition of the masses is daily getting worse. The reason to my mind is not far to seek. Many well-intentioned philanthropists are spending their energies and the offerings of the cliaritable public in mopping up the drops and splashes of the submerged tenth and world-wide miserables, without concerning themselves about the fresh supplies which are continually being poured in at what may be termed the re ceiving end of the social cesspool. Popula tion is daily growing, and the struggle for life becoming keener and yet more keen, and I claim that the time has arrived when every honest man and woman must work with a view of extinguishing the supply. Soup kitchens, Government r...

POLICE INSPECTION IN THE SOUTH-EAST. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 April 1895

POLICE INSPECTION IN THE SOUTH-EAST. TO THE EDITOR, Sir—As the Government appear anxious to practice rigid economy where practicable, I will endeavour, with your permission, to show where economy can be used to a great advantage in the police force. There is at present an inspector of police in charge of the South-Eastern district, who costs the revenue approximately something like £510 per annum, which I make up as follows:— Salary of the inspector, £370; quarters allowance, £50 ; and say half the cost of one constable to carry out the duties as groom, &c., at £150=£75, and two horses for trap use costing say £14 per annum. As I under stand there are only tcn police stations and fifteen constables in the South-East, it will be seen the cost of the supervision of each station is a tax on the exchequer to the tune of nearly £51 per annum, which to my mind is most absurd. Considering that nearly every station in the district can be reached by train from Adelaide in one day's j...

Dave Hargrave's Mission. CHAPTER VIII.(continued). [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 April 1895

Dave Hargrave's Mission. [By Harry J. White.] CHAPTER III. (continued). Oh, hold yer tongue, it's small crying out yeu'd do if it was a gal instead of a boy if ye was only a bit younger," said Jack. " There, lay hold of my flipper, now heave oil! there you are, Mr. Ope, and its tliauk ful you ought to be this blessed night to me for having saved your life, and you to be abusing me in that style." " Saved my life is it, why, ye blathering old villain, I'll get you locked up for risking people's lives in tills old piece of furniture, let alone a brand new suit of clothes, and a plug of the best navy hard that the captain of the ship gave me; look at it, as wet as a sponge." " Oh, hold your tongue ; see how the boat is drifting down the stream, and there's the tug whistling too." " Well, then, pull, you old blowhard, and get the lad aboard in good time, for maybe the skipper's goiog earlier than he said ; and now Dave, my boy, 'tis little time we shall have together.

Poetry. THE KING, THE LORD, AND THE MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 April 1895

Poetry. THE KING, THE LORD, AND THE MAN. Come, listen, O my comrades, while I sing ' to you the song Of the King iu elder days, when the Commonwealth was young, The King by right of service in the nation's common yoke, The shielder, the avenger, the strong one of renowu; The King who by his kingcraft was the blessing of the folk, Whose deeds became him better than a sceptre or a crown. He was living, lie is dead, and we sing the song of praise For the honour of the King that was King in elder days. For the King, and for the Lord, the bread warden man of old, Who was strong with a man's strength, and not the strength of gold, Who was heartliniate and sharer with the people that had lack, Who wrought among his neighbours in the forest and the field, Who shed for them his blood in the battle and the wrack, A lord and not a lozel, with a mattock or a shield. He was living, he is dead, and we sing the song of praise, For the honour of the lord that was Lord in elder days. But now, my com...
