Wastrel. [BY THE WHICH.] [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 October 1894
Wastrel. [By The Which.] The Country weakly journal asked a short time since, " Is Solomon the coming man ? I should have thought that a very little reflection on- the part of the conductor of that organ would have con vinced him that Solomon had already come, and come, unhappily for Kingston and liofi. members, to stay—until the next^ general elections, unless there is a previous dissolution of Parliament or Solomon. X do not know how it strikes other people, but it knocks me how a clever man like Mr. Solomon can give himself away as he does. His poses may 1 be picturesque, but they are not natural. If heredity goes for anything, he is masquerading; his forbears never assumed the attitudes he affects, and I, for one, sincerely regret to see him balancing upon a pedestal which he is fitted neither by nature nor instinct to adorn. Whatever there may be in store for Mr. Solomon in the dim and far-off future, no one who has read the proverbs of his illustrious ancestor, will accuse him...

Drama and Music. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 October 1894
Drama and Music. [Br Ariel.] At the Theatre Royal on Saturday night "Aunt Jack" made her final bow to a highly pleased audience. "Sowing the Wind" was staged ou Monday, and again the Brough-Boucicault Company have scored a complete success. The plot provides many opportunities to the performers of displaying their histrionic gifts, and in the third act the remarkable by-play of Mrs. Brough— her intensity of passion—seconded by Mr. Titheradge, thoroughly roused the house, and the curtain fell amidst enthusiastic applause. Mrs. Brough as Rosamond, Mr. Tithe radge as Mr. Brabazon played splendidly, and were ably supported by Messrs. Brough, Ward, Carey, and Darrington; Miss Rouier and Miss Noble completing the caste. " Sowing the Wind " has given Mr. Phil. Go atelier many opportunities to show his skill, some of the pictures being the finest I have seen placed on the Adelaide stage. Mr. H. M. Kennedy, the Elder scholar, says a London correspondent, is getting on most satisfactorily wit...
Editorial Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 October 1894
Editorial Notes. Hot far the landed genti'y will go ia trying to evade a fair proportionate share of taxation, may be gathered from tlie fact that during the fight which lias been going on over the Land Taxation Amend ment Bill, they have suggested all manner of schemes whereby their own slrins might be saved at the cost of others. # # # # They would ia the very face of public opinion and humanitarian principles re vert back to the " old hours of labor they would upset the existing educational system, which has for its object the abolishment of ignorance and super stition among the masses; they would overthrow the management of any State industrial department, even though by so doing immense loss should be occa sioned. and hundreds of honest men, with their wives and children, should be deprived of bread and butter. # # # # They are indeed feelingless and tyran nical where their acres are concerned, and light as hard over their lucre as a tiger over her cubs. Their land and money hu...
The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE: OCTOBER 26, 1894. INDUSTRIAL TROUBLES AND THEIR CURE. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 October 1894
The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE : OCTOBER 26, 1894. INDUSTRIAL TROUBLES AND THEIR CURE. We are evidently passing1 through a crucial period of our history, for never before was the relationship between labour and capital so strained. So acute, indeed, have the symptoms become, that nothing but a determina tion on both sides to confer and reason without any hampering pro visos, can be expected to inspire even a small amount of confidence in affairs social and commercial. Aud here, in justice to the labour party, it mast be acknowledged conciliation Las been offered time and again with out avail. How far and deep the gulf is that separates the two great factors of commerce can best be gauged by the report just sent in on the unemployed question by the Go vernment - appointed Select Com mittee. Naturally enough our leaning is towards suggested labour remedies, and here we think we must have the sympathy of every liberal minded man in the country. We surely cannot be blamed for refusing to s...
HERE AND THERE. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 October 1894
HERE A™ THERE. FBy Cyn.1 The controversy in the dailies over Mr. 1 Grainger's Brewers Monopoly Abolition Act ' shows pretty clearly that if carried it will largely remain a dead letter. I remember reading in the Australian (Star many years ago a very good article on the liquor traffic wbich was presumably written by Mr. Grainger, showing that the best way to ■ control the liquor traffic would be to make it a national business, and only last week the Sydney Bulletin in its leading editorial dealt with the question from the same stand point. This system has been occasionally advocated by a few South Australian Radicals, and finds favour with many who, while being utterly sick of seeing the un wary trapped into dens of drunkenness and vice for the benefit of a few superior land lords, cannot go the whole hog of prohibi tion. Will some labour member make a point of getting statistics to guide us as to the practicability of nationalising the busi ness. After our recent experiences of unf...
Parliamentary Mems. [BY GALLERY MAN.] THE TAXATION ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 October 1894
Parliamentary Mems. [By Gallery Man.] The Taxation Act. On Thursday afternoon, the loth, the Taxation Act Amendment Bill passed through all its stages in the Assembly. The opposition -which it has had to encounter has been of the most hostile character, and there has been an extraordinary amount of un necessary talk indulged in at every stage of its progress. Bearing this iu mind, and the little probability there was of "converting" any of the supporters who bad so unflinch ingly stood by the BUI, there was every reason to suppose that a very few minutes would have sufficed to enable the Govern ment to carry the third reading. The Op position had either miscalculated its strength or was bent on wasting further time—most probably the latter. At all events an at tempt to recommit the Bill, although it afforded an opportunity for more talk, failed on a division by 16 votes to 26. Thus only one more division remained to be taken to decide the fate of the Bill, so far as the House of Ass...
ORROROO OLLA-PODRIDA. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 October 1894
ORROROO OLLA-PODR1DA. [Br Arhska.1 A lecture 011 the somewhat involved subject of bi-metallisra was delivered in the Orroroo Institute on Saturday evening, 20th inst., by Mr. W. Copley. The atten dance was good considering the decidedly unattractive nature of the subject. The chair was taken by J. Jamieson, J.P., of Black Rock, President of the local Agri cultural Bureau, under the auspices of which the lecture was given. Mr. Copley spoke for over an hour, and adduced a mass of statistics of various kinds to prove the desirability of introducing bimetallism, pointing out the evils which had grown up under monometallism, and predicting a happy issue from our commercial troubles as the result of the adoption of bimetallism. One could not help wondering whilst he was speaking whether it would not have been just as easy to prove the opposite from statistics which he relied upon so implicitly, remembering the celebrated classification of lies by Theo. Hook, viz.—Lies, d lies and statisti...

RACING. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 2 November 1894
RACING. Birksgate won the St. Albans Handicap at Moonee Valley last week, beating Sir George and nine others; Guardfish also scoring a winning bracket. The Rector fell in the Phceuix Handicap, but was well beaten at the time. Preston, by Robinson Crusoe— Blue Eyes, won the Moonee Valley Cup, carrying 7 st. 12 lb. The V.R.C. Derby will be run to-morrow. Dreamland is now firmly established at the head of the quotations, and judging by the way he is getting through his work I believe he will absolutely win the Blue Riband of 1894. Bonnie Scotland is another who will be thereabouts at the finish, and with Cobbitty continuing well he should get a place. Malachite and The Harvester have been heavily backed, the former being a strong fancy amongst the knowing ones. Chestermau is under a cloud, as he may be reserved for the Melbourne Cup ; still if he does go he is just the one to create a surprise. Summed up finally I expect to see the finish fought out between Dream land, Cobbitty, Bonnie...

Wreck of the Wairarapa. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 2 November 1894
Wreck of the Wairarapa. News has been received that the ss. Wairarapa was totally lost ou Sunday night last, oil the Great Barrier Islam), 60 miles from Auckland. Altogether 111 passengers and 23 sailors, including Captain Mcintosh, were drowned. The ill-fated steamer left Sydney on October 24 for New Zealand ports, and owing to lack of news relative to her where abouts, grave fears were entertained by owners and friends of those on board for several days past. Among the saved the following names are mentioned :—Messrs. T. Corbett, Sinclair, Chippendale, Peters, and Miss Bucklcton. The night on which the catastrophe occurred was rough and stormy and ex tremely dark, and the fear and excitement of persons.aboard rendered all efforts which were made to save life practically useless. Several boats capsized with all their occu pants, and numbers were washed off the decks by the rough sea.
The Shadows of City Life. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 2 November 1894
The Shadows of City Life. Mr. Stead's latest wort, " If Christ Came to Chicago," is one of his most brilliant literary efforts. With the fire of a true reformer and the courage which ignores threats and defies persecution, he lays bare in his work the civil and social foulness and corruptness of American life. Without any apology or senti mental excuse for introducing what some people may regard as rude or questionable reading, we quote the following from a chapter of the volume, simply bearing in mind that exposure of evils is the best method of bringing about redress, and that to the really pure all things are pure:—" Carrie Watson is a procuress. Business is carried on openly enough with carriages standing at the door at all hours of the night waiting for the "gentlemen" inside. Carrie Watson and Lame Jimmy, her violin player,- are a typical Chicagoan pair. Lame Jimmy acquired an unevitable notoriety this year, for at his annual benefit ball one of the best known police officers ...
