The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE: MAY 3, 1895. THE LIBEL CASE. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 3 May 1895

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE : MAY 3, 1895. THE LIBEL CASE. So far as tiie result of the libel action of Wednesday affects Mr. Bonytlion, the proprietor of the Advertiser, it inay be regarded as eminently satisfactory. That the proprietor of a public journal should have been subjected to sucli au fiction is itself the strongest condemnation of the outrageous libel laws at piesent existing in this province. The paper gave with out comment or endorsement of 'any. kind a truthful and unbiassed report of the remarks of a legislator addressing his constituents, and for thus supplying the public with information jsJucli it is tl^e duly of a public journal • to provide, the: proprietor is subjected to the cost and annoyance of an expensive libel suit. It is true that in the present instance the defendant escaped by the merest techni cality, but this fact all the more strongly emphasises the necessity for an imme diate amendment of a law so obnoxious to the freedom of the Press, and to that ...

Poetry. THE LORD HELP THE PUIR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 3 May 1895

Poetry. THE LORD HELP THE PUIR. The wealthy reside in mansions aae fair, Where the music of birds fills the sweet summer air; Where fountain and stream sparkles bright and serene— And Sowers of the rarest enriches the scene. A® comforts are theirs that the world can supply— Neither heat, cautd, nor hunger can erer : Come nigh— Yet whiles their complaints for the sorrows j they bear Breaks the stillness of night—then the Lord ; help the puiri *Tis the fashion to praise np the men who in trade Either richtly or wrongly vast millions -have made; j These aire held np in books to the wondering earth As brilliant examples of tact, sense, and worth. But a sea of pinched faces bursts full on my | ■view, And the deep tones of anguish my heart pierces through; 'Tis the wretches who starve—that the proud millionaire ] Might flaunt his vast treasures—the Lord i help tfee pair! There's a fine creed propounded sometimes in oor ears— The rich are ca'd stewards—their wealth j - it appears Has been ...

RAILWAY VAGARIES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 3 May 1895

RAILWAY VAGARIES. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—If the following bit of information is any use to you, publish it. A few days ago a well-known gentleman, who often travels between Mount Lofty and Adelaide, had something like half a drayload of luggage I put into a first-class carriage at the former station, and then quietly got into another compartment, no doubt for comfort. Well, sir, I thought this was in striking contrast j to the case of5 a second-class passenger who j was getting into the 6.30 a.in. train some weeks ago with a 3-ft. spring blind-roller in hand, when a porter told him to go back and , get a ticket for it, and before he got back j the train had started, and the passenger had the choiee of waiting 4 hours and 25 minutes for the next train, or forfeiting Ms fare and walking home. Surely, sir, somebody has j more than their fair share of influence in the | management of our ©ublic works. I am, Sir, &c., H. B.

People's Column. [We do not hold ourselves in any way responsible for the opinions expressed in the " People's Column," the object of which is to provide facilities for the free discussion, within reasonable limits, of matters of public interest.] A WORD TO WORKERS. TO THR EDITOR. Sir—Truly the labor members and toiling classes need to possess themselves in patience just now. With their political opponents the motto is evidently " by hook or by crook." What with sham letters to the press, bogus meetings aud reports of societies, and boycotting extraordinary, the battle for freedom is uphill for the worker. A certain class evidently have determined to discredit the legislators who hsve been sent up from the " ranks." Let me ask workmen generally to examine history for the last few centuries, and they will soon find out that the toiling classes have presented the world with almost all the genius that has made for industrial*and inventive progression. Think of it, ye workers, and do no...

Dave Hargrave's Mission. CHAPTER X. (continued). [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 3 May 1895

Dave Hargrave's Mission. [By Harry J. White.] CHAPTER X. (continued). And this was the son of his old benefactor. Dave felt sick set heart. How he longed to find him out, and work bis deliverance from stich a fate as seemed in store for him. ^ He felt very down-hearted during the remainder of his journey; and when he arrived at bis destination he was glad to find a team and waggon waiting for the goods, which were in charge of a rough and ready West countryman. As soon as they had satisfied each other as to identity, the miner asked Dave in his broad Cornish dialect, if he had got the "specimens." <CI don't know anything about specimens. I have a number of bags of blacksmith's coal. See, the porters are putting them off the truck now." " Oh, I see! well, we'll shift the bullocks on a bit and load them on t© the waggon ; for we have a good few miles to travel yet, to the Albert Reefsaying which he took the waggon up to the platform ; and with the help of the porter soon st...

Freedom of Contract. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 10 May 1895

Freedom of Contract. There is no freedom of contract between a fastiug mail and a full man. The full man can wait; the liuugry man cannot wait. In the elder Dumas' famous romance, " The Count of Monte Cristo," the wicked banker, Daaglars I think was his name, is captured by a brigand chief avid held to ransom. Poor Danglars grows very hungry, and asks for food. He is told he can have food, but he must pay for it. He says he is willing to pay for it, and asks what the price of a fowl would be. He is told of some enormous sum —many thousands of francs. He angrily demurs, but he is politely told that it is all a matter for himself; he need not eat, and if lie does not eat he will not have to pay, but if lie decides to eat he must pay over the stipulated price. Now, that is not by any means an unfair illustration of what used to be called in the old days " freedom of con tract." A hungry working man, with a wife and children depending on him, applies for employment, and is told that he ...

People's Column. [We do not hold ourselves in any way responsible for the opinions expressed in the " People's Column," the object of which is to provide facilities for the free discussion, within reasonable limits, of matters of public interest.] WEALTH OF THE VILLAGE SETTLERS. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—There is a time fast approaching us ■when everyone's individual light to the use of the ]aud and the natural resources of the earth must be recognised above all other rights. The natural born right to the use of the natural advantages and opportunities of the earth is just as absolute and imperative as our natural right to remain on the earth, and cannot be separated from it. And these rights cannot be enjoyed without a system of prolific and equitable exchange, which must inevitably evolve into a non-interest bearing currency. But these things cannot be thought out or enquired into until we get over certain old worn-out superstitions, such as the superstition of the sacred rights of prope...
