Deepest Depths of Poverty. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 3 May 1895

Deepest Depths of Poverty. A distressing case of privation came to light at South Preston, near Melbourne, on Thursday last. For some time past a man named George Dunbar and bis wife have been living in a house in High-street. They were evidently in straitened jireumstances, but kept their needs to themselves. How ever, their circumstances were divulged through a tragic accident. Dunbar, while nursing his only child, aged 14 months, at the door, let it fall, with the result that its neck was broken. It is said that the man was almost delirious from privation at the time. The house was found to be bare of both food and furniture, and the wife, who will soon be again a mother, was in a very weak state, and had not tasted food for twenty-four hours.—Barrier Miner.

The Whitewashes. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 3 May 1895

The Whitewashes. There was a certain district of a great English city where the drains were so bad that the people died of fever. The City Council, hearing of this, opened an extra ward in the workhouse infirmary, and posted bills in the slum court directing the people to keep their houses clean. The Council called this " taking vigorous steps to counteract the epidemic." Nevertheless, the people continued to. sicken and to die. Then there was an election, and in this district there were two candidates. One candidate was the retiring member of the Council. The other was a labourer who lived in one of the infested slums. This laborer spoke to the people. He said the fever was due to bad drainage, and that the only remedy was to improve the drainage. Opening an extra ward in the workhouse infirmary, he declared, was not a means of checking the sickness, but only afforded the sufferers improved facilities for dying. When he had gone away the retiring Councillor spoke to the same audien...

Gleanings. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 3 May 1895

Gleanings. To be respected labour most be powerful. To be powerful labor must be well organised. The latest rendering of an old motto :— "Do others, and see that they don't do you." The cultivated lands of the United States only occupy 289 acres out of each 1,000. The Edinboro' Municipal Council con templates starting a pension fund for its employes.

How the Wealthy Dress. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 3 May 1895

How the Wealthy Dress. Worth, the recently deceased Paris dress maker, recently said:—" My usual charge for an ordinary silk evening dress is from £50 to £75, but, of course, this sum may be considerably augmented by special trimming. I once made a Court gown, the train of which alone cost -£1,000. This was largely owing to its being covered with superb silk embroidery. One of the most expensive dresses I have ever made came to nearly £5,000. But of this sum all but about £300 went for the lace with which it was trimmed." Speaking of a young lady for whom he was making a dress, he said:— " The corset she was wearing cost £15 15s., a lace petticoat £30, her other under things, trimmed with real old lace, £25 the set, and the garters, with gold snaps, set with a solitaire" diamond, £60 the pair. So that the underclothing this young heiress wore of an afternoon represented nearly £150." And yet Hood's pathetic "Song of the Shirt" still represents a living reality. No doubt you get the ...

MR. BUTCHER'S CONTENTION. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 3 May 1895

MR. BUTCHER'S CONTENTION. TO THE EDITOB. Sir—In your last issue Mr. Butcher con tends that "as intellectuality increases so sensuality decreases." I would like to ask Mr. Butcher for historical proof that his assertion is correct. With the increase of intellectual strength among the ancient Greeks, was there a corresponding loftiness of tone and purity of life ? Were the in tellectual giants of ancient Athens remark able for the purity of their lives ? As an enquirer about these things I would like Mr. Butcher also to prove that increased leisure makes for a longer and nobler purity of life in the average man and woman. In numberless instances the leisured class are the most dissolute of any. One more ques tion and I have finished. Can Mr. Butcher prove that the improvement in many of our laws and customs is owing to intellectuality or leisure ? I do not think that he can do anything of the sort. Mr. G. L. Brace, in "Gesta Chrisfci," shows most conclusively that Christianity has bee...

OUR PASTORAL ESTATES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 3 May 1895

OUR PASTORAL ESTATES. tn tor Rnirmi Sir—It caanot be to the interest of the community that pastoral country should be unoccupied; so, as the land belongs to all of us, the sooner it is occupied the better. Each individual has a claim to an equal share of any benefits which as landlords collectively can be derived from the letting j or the using of such lauds advantageously. There are three classcs from which the community as landlords can select their tenants—the independently affluent, the moderate capitalist, and the ever-ready but moneyless speculator. Now, the affluent man would be quite independent of the banks, could take up enormously large blocks, would have every chance of success, and could employ a large number of hands. These are all good points, but after all such a man don't want, or I mean he ought not to want more. When he has sufficient, and if he is affluent and dissatisfied, he must be degenerating, and when we take into con sideration the fact that the richer the...

The Anterooms of Hell. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 3 May 1895

The Anterooms of Hell. When we read of fearful weather in the Atlantic—and the weather has been fearful indeed this winter—how few, even of the workers, think of anybody but the pas sengers, or at the furthest the officers and sailors. Yet it is safe to say that none suffer more at such times than the engineers and stokers. Horribly cold and dangerous as it is on deck, it is, if anything, worse still in the stokehole. And what a pittance these slaves get who toil in that hell below hatches to drive the "greyhounds of the Atlantic" across to New York and back at twenty knots and more an hour ! There are more wages-slaves where they come from, so what if now and then a few of them get "overheated," or practically roasted to death ? Nobody cares, any more than any body cares for the poor creatsres who are poisoned in our factories or murdered in our coal mines. They are all food for capital, and if they weren't tortured and butchered capitalists couldn't become millionaires, landlords ...

STATE AIDED CO-OPERATION. TO THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 3 May 1895

STATE AIDED CO-OPERATION. TO THE EDITOR Sir—Protection has had its day and is played out, and new countries need the advent oi new methods, and the method that is gaining ground amongst the higher intelligencies of our colonial communities is one tha«fc while enabling the toiler to obtain the means of existence and the enjoyment of life, yet obviates the fast growing curse of the age, the centralisation of capital, and thst is "a liberal monetary assistance to co-operative companies of toilers." I have always laid it down as a fixed principle that when private enterprise with its capital is inadequate to achieve an important under taking, then it becomes the duty of the Go vernment, and as the former have proved their utter incapacity to develop the resources of the country, and utilize the wasted power of labor, then the time has arrived for those gentlemen on whom devolve the stability, the prosperity, and the development of the countries over which they exercise the powers of gov...

THE SCHOOL BOARD ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 3 May 1895

THE SCHOOL BOARD ELECTIONS. The School Board system is not a success for various reasons, aud is not likely to be under present conditions. Its .hyjn-jd character is a relic of the old days, which are little more than a memory in South Australia, and is entirely out of place in a democratic community. The functions of the boards are so restricted as> to render their operations practically useless. Half a dozen grave and reverend seigneurs meet together once a fortnight, or once a month, as the case may be, to consider the cleansing of an outhouse, the fixing of a waterpipe, or the spread ing of a load of gravel. Their delibera tions result iu a recommendation to the department to carry out or not to carry out the work, and are duly docketed and pigeonholed, aud there the matter ends until some further recommendation is made. With all its faults, however, there is no reason why the system should not be carried out in its integrity while it exists, and until it is superseded by som...
