Tells Its Own Story. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 April 1895

Tells Its Own Story. In 1880, of all tlie farms ill the United States, three-quarters were tilled by their owners; in 1890, only two-thirds. The proportion of hired,farms had in ten years risen from 25 to nearly 34 per cent. At this rate, in twelve;, or fifteen years, the tenant farmers will outnumber those who own their homesteads. In our cities (says an American paper) the comparative number of homeowners is much smaller; and it is smaller in the largest and most developed urban com munities. In New York, landlordism is almost universal, only 6 per cent, of the resident families being proprietors of their dwellings. In Boston, the percentage of tenant families is 82; in Brooklyn, 81 ; Philadelphia, 77 ; Baltimore, 74 ; Washing ton, 75. In Western cities the figures are very similar, Chicago showing 71 per cent, who rent their homes; St. Louis, 80; Minneapolis, 69 ; and San Francisco, 69. For the whole country the 1890 census shows that of nearly thirteen million families a little ...

The Unemployed in New Zealand. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 April 1895

The Unemployed in New Zealand. The New Zealand Govejpment has decided (writes the Dunedin correspondent of the ; Melbourne Argus) to enter upon a large and comprehensive scheme, involving consider able expenditure, with the view" of finding work for the unemployed, and at the same time settling them on the land. The idea is to proceed with important road works to open up land for settlement. In the first instance preference will be given to married men who are prepared to settle down with their families on suitable blocks of land con venient to the road work. These men will be employed part of the time on the road works, and part of the time on their own land. The timber on the blocks, instead of being destroyed is to be utilized by the erection of the Government sawmills to cut out blocks to supply timber to the home and Australian markets, these sawmills being, as far as possible, worked on the co-operative principle. Married men prepared to settle at once will receive four days' ...

' rjUBBER must supersede leather for l> boot soles where it can be afforded, because rubber lasts about three times as long as leather, and is infinitely more com fortable, the softness giving the wearer the feeling of walking on pile carpet as well as imparting a pleasant elasticity and buoy ancy. Boots sold from £1 Is. downwards, and shoes from 18s. 6d. downwards. One pair of soles with judicious patching where most worn, will outlast an ordinary pair of uppers. Half-soles at 6s. per pair.

Wealth and Penury. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 April 1895

Wealth and Penury. " That wealth and penury , advance hand in hand, that the stately, sumptuous man sion implies the lowly, desolate hovel, was long ago noted. We may rehearse the babble of the accredited political economists till our brains are addled and our eyes be nighted, and still the fact remains that so long as one man shall be authorised to draw an income say $100,000 per annum from the cultivators of a township for the use of the naked earth they stand on, to be increased as power shall dictate and need perforce assent, so long must the reward of the labor expended thereon be meagre, and its sub sistence scanty and precarious. So long as the millions whom God has doomed in the sweat of the faces to eat bread shall be con strained to solicit of others the privilege of so doing, and to propitiate a land-owning class by such share of their products as cupidity may exact and necessity must con cede, the increase of population will be paralleled by the depression of labor and t...

The State Board of Conciliation. THE REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 April 1895

The State Board of Conciliation. THE REPORT. The following is the report of the State Board of Conciliation with reference to the tannery dispute at Hindinarsh: — The Board met at the Supreme Court house on Tuesday, April 9, all the members being present, and also on Thursday, April 11, Wednesday, April 17, and Thursday, April 18- Altogether ten witnesses were examined. Mr. A. Dowie declined to appear before the Board, questioned its jurisdiction to enquire into the difference between himself and his employes under the circumstances, and requested to be heard by counsel in support of his contention. The Board held that they were precluded by clause 7S of tlie Conciliation Act of 1894 from complying with such request. The stand taken by Mr. Dowie materially in creased the Board's difficulty; but as neither party to the dispute was registered under the Act, and as the enquiry was in stituted in the public interest only, in accordance with Part IX. of the Act, and not at either party's...

Gleanings. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 April 1895

Gleanings. Ik the factories in connection with the London General Post Office the eight-hours system has been adopted. The Australian Workmen's Union has about 50,000 members. G. Spence is General Secretary* The best argument in favour of bi* metallism is the violent opposition it is j beginning to meet with from the money | lords of the world. The gross earnings of the United King dom is £1,500,000,000 a year. Of this, the workers who earn it receive under £500,000,000. In England alone more than £21,000,000 per annum is wasted in the promotion of companies that yield nothing but deficits to the shareholders. In England and Wales 830 women have been elected ias guardians of the poor, in cluding that " splendid pauper," the Countess of Warwick. The London County Council has a " Fair Wages Committee," whose duty it is to see that all its great army of employes are paid a living wage. : " Members who attend to their business in Parliament are entitled to be paid as people pay their cl...

GAMBLING, AND THE CRUSADE AGAINST IT. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 April 1895

GAMBLING, AND THE CRUSADE AGAINST IT. TO THE EDITOlt. Sir—This is a question there is little doubt will have to be debated by our legis lators within a brief period. A few days ago one of our daily papers published a very able leading article giving some interesting details. About the same time a leading weekly paper with a large circulation in all the colonies also dealt with the question, and special reference was made to the South Australian Totalizator Act, and to the ridiculous failure it had been from its infancy; also the incapacity of the authorities to gain a legal conviction against those persons who infringed it. One or two letters bearing on the subject have appeared intermittently, clearly indi cating, to my mind, that this question will be made a leading one at the next general election, if not during the coming session ; also that the pioneers of the Crusaders are silently preparing for the fray. The Crusaders, by the way, claim to have enlisted Lord llussell into the...

People's Column. WORK FOR WOMEN VOTERS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 April 1895

People's Column. WORK FOR WOMEN VOTERS. TO THE EDITOB. Sir—Now that women have a vote it is ■well to point out that there are more important questions to occupy their atten tion than the drink question. There has been, too much time, talent, aud money ex pended on an object which is after all but a side issue, and not the bedrock of which it is the natural outcome, and the moral influence of women will have a far greater power if exercised as a restraining than as a coersive influence. Knowing that prohibi tion is too closely allied to tyranny to enlist the cordial support of nine-tenths of man kind, let our womenfolks rather remember that as intellectuality increases sensuality decreases, that socialism by raising and purifying the environments of the classes ; by raising the standard of education ; by opening out the means for the enjoyment of intellectual pursuits will do more towards the suppression of inebriety than all the coersive measures of Auiaiica rolled into one.

The Difficulty in the Tanning Trade. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 April 1895

Allman (President) in the chair. The Executive of the Trades and Labor Council, including Messrs. J. A. McPherson, M.P., F. J. Hourigan, M.P., W. J. Roach, and W. C. Taylor were also present. The difficulty at Mr. Dowie's tannery was discussed, and it was resolved to refer the matter to the Trades and Labor Council, with a view of that body entering into negotiations with the Employers' Union for the purpose of arranging a conference and effecting a recon ciliation on the lines of the report of the State Board of Conciliation. The matter is now in the hands of the Trades and Labor Council, who have communicated with the Employers' Union in terms of the resolution of the meeting above referred to.

"WHO ARE THE ANARCHISTS?" TO THIS EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 April 1895

" WHO ARE TTTR ATtfAPHHTSTS ?» TO THIS EDITOR. Sir—1 attended the lecture on Sunday evening last at the Democratic Club to hear Mr. Archibald, M.P., on " Who are the Anarchists?" I must confess that I was greatly disappointed. In fact I went there under a misapprehension altogether, think ing that the lecture would be dealt with from the European standpoint, instead of which it was of local importance only. I have no desire to cavil at the manner in which the lecturer treated the subject (agreeing as I do with him in the definition laid down by Mr. Ruskin of anarchy, i.e., " the antipodes of order") as I agree with Mr. Archibald in the main. Still, it would have afforded me far greater satisfaction to have learnt something of the Propaganda laid down by the self-styled anarchists— assuming that they have one. Any informa tion on the subject that you or your numerous correspondents could give would be of great interest, I feel sure, to no incon siderable number of your readers, and e...
