The Tannery Dispute. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 April 1895

The Tannery Dispute. The Conciliation Board met for the third time on Wednesday, when three more wit nesses were examined, and the report of the arbitration in reference to the strike which took place in connection with, the tanners and curriers' trade in 1890 was put in. The report was discussed, and we believe an almost unanimous decision was arrived at. Mr. Dowie was not present, and had not attended any cf the Board meetings. The report of the Board was drafted, and it was decided to meet again yesterday afternoon, for the purpose of finally adopting it, when it will at once be placed in the hands of the Attorney-General.

General News and Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 April 1895

General News and Notes. Beware of bogus " working men" corre spondents of Conservative papers. Grand weather for the holidays, and every one who had the means appeared to enjoy themsel ves. Cholera has broken out iu Mikadoland, and the Japanese Court lias had to shift its quarters. China is said to have accepted the Mikado's terms of peace. Another nineteenth-century illusion dis pelled. China was thought to be im pregnable, aud a menace to Western civilization, but progressive Japan has walked all over her. Progression is the order of the day, both east and west. Parliament may be the brain of the people, but federation is a work of the heart as well as the head {says the Commonwealth), and to gain the confidence and the enthu siasm of the citizens it must be the work, not of their rulers, but of themselves. Russia opposes the cession of any terri tory on the part of China as one of the con ditions of peace. Afraid of having her passage to the east blocked. Newfoundland is to be ad...

People's Column. THE CURSE OF COLOURED LABOR. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 April 1895

People's Column. THE CURSE OF COLOURED LABOR. TO THE EMTOB. Sir—Leprosy is in our midst—that con tagious, loathsome disease that sets science at default —and it is only a question of time before it overruns this hitherto favoured continent, for it matters not how pure our surroundings may be, it works its silent ■way, and the fonr white lepers of Queens land may be the forerunners of thousands, and although doubtless the mischief may have been done, yet I would press upon the Government the urgent necessity to adopt instant measures to place an embargo on all Queensland sugar imported into our midst, and stop its further importation, and also minimise the risk by buying up and destroy ing all not yet consumed. There are no greater tea-drinkers in the world than we Australians, and the knowledge that the sugar so needful to the enjoyment of that highly requisitioned beverage may have passed through the hands of the leprous kanaka, and consequently contain the baccili of leprosy, requ...

" After," she said, "reading Mr. Parsons's summing-up of subjects necessary for us women to be well posted up in before we were to be considered capable of exercising our franchise, I set about interrogating my masculine acquaint ances (who are electors) for enlightenment, but they one and" all seemed as much mystified as myself, and I had to fall back on my daughter, aged twelve, who came home from school saying, * Schoolmistress says you read these books, and you will soon know as much as Mr. Parsons, and pet-baps a great deal more, for the future thoughts of women will be how best to secure to all the equal rights of all to life, liberty, and happi ness, and we will have to do the acting while the men do the talking, and it seems to lue, mother, from what schoolmistress says, that's all...

" Well, my dear young man," said the captain good humoredly, "if yoa do such deeds you must put up with the conse quences," for he could see the lad was getting surfeited with so much flattery ; but you had better go down to my cabin.

HOMING. HOUSING OF FLYERS. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 April 1895

HOMING. TBt Whitechapel Dick.] Housing of Flyers. Much of the success of flyers depends upon the proper housing of tlieir birds. The pigeon house should occupy an elevated position, should be kept clean by lime-whiting, warm in winter, and cool in summer. The real practical pigeon faneier will build a proper loft, or dorma, say 30 ft. high, erected upon two pillars, in such a position that he can sit up in it, and view his birds coming home from almost any direction. This can be done in the following manner :—Two pillars as above stated firmly fixed in the ground, and stayed, &c. Obtain a strong case, 6 ft. by 6 by 2 ft. high ; cut a 2-ft. hole in the bottom, or sufficiently large to allow you to get through and look out over the top. Board up all round this hole, cutting a hole into every nest box, covered by a slide, that you may clean out the nest or examine the young oues. Thus you will have your nests all opening inside this 2-ft. square. The nests should be in the uppe...
