A Sketch by the Way. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 10 May 1895
A Sketch by the Way. It was a warm June morning, the sun slione genially, and the lark sang merrily overhead. The air was laden with the sweet scent of flowers, and the wind, creeping in at the partially opened window of the office of Messrs. Grabb, Filchett, and Kute, toyed lightly with the scanty hair on the head of Mr. Andrew Grabb, senior partner of the firm. The wind is no respector of persons, nor has it any favourites. It ruffles the few grey liairs on the hard head of the grasping capitalist ill the same playful spirit, and with as much tenderness, as it fondles the silken tresses of the most lovely maiden. But Mr. Andrew Grabb felt not the caresses of the wind, heeded not the sweet singing of the lark, the fragrance of the flowers, or the genial warmth of the sun. He was engaged in the pleasant occupation of casting up his balance at the Bank. The result was satisfactory, for he tilted back his chair, stuck his feet up in his favourite position on the table, lit a cigar, an...

Democratic Societies. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 10 May 1895
Democratic Societies. The Democratic Club.—At the meeting of the club 011 Sunday evening, May 6, Mr. Spears (Vice-President) occupied the chair, and there was a good attendance. Mr. J. C. Hamp read a paper 011 "Reform of the Divorce Law." Mr. Hamp advocated an enlargement of the grounds of divorce, so as to allow a divorce on the grounds of habitual drunkenness, desertion, imprisonment for a term of years, and lunacy. He stated that for years past divorce law had been in a state of stagnation, and its present back ward state was due undoubtedly to the atti tude of the Church, and to its association with religion. He contended that the pre sent system of judicial separation, by which the parties were separated but not allowed to marry again, was bad in every way, and directly conduced to immorality. It was very unfair to the injured party, and when ever such a state of things had come to pass as warranted a judicial separation being granted, it was only right that the marriage contra...

OUR CITIZEN WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 10 May 1895
OUR CITIZEN WOMEN. The splendid success attending the enrolment of woman voters throughout ! the principal centres of the province mast be a sore disappointment to the obstructionist party, who first declared that women did not want the privilege, then worked with all their might to prevent her from obtaining it, and now are fawning and flattering her with a view to secure her support. The first j argument has been amply refuted by the | women themselves before the Adult Suffrage Act was passed, and now they have followed this up in the most practical possible way by taking the earliest opportunity of registering j their names as electors. The number already registered exceeds the expecta tions of even the supporters of the principle, and in some electorates it is j anticipated that more women will be ; registered than men. Only in very few j cases have women positively refused the j franchise, and judging by the number enrolled those who have neglected the opportunity to legister d...

Michael Davitt. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 10 May 1895
Michael Davitt, Mr. T. P. O'Connor furnishes the follow ing graphic sketch of Michael Davitt, as lie appeared in the House of Commons during the debate on the Home Rule Bill in 1892:— " On an assembly which had been jaded and almost tortured by this tremendous display it was Mr. Davitt's fortune to come with his first speech in Parliament. For hour after hour he had sate very still with deeply-lined face, but with a i-estless and frequent twist of the heavy dark moustache that spoke of the intense nervous strain to which this weary waiting was subjecting him. Davitt is a man whose face would stand out in bold relief from any crowd of men, however numerous or remarkable. He lias a narrow face, with high cheekbones, and the thick, close, black whiskers, beard and moustache make him look almost as dark as a Spaniard. The eyes are deep set, brilliant, restless in infinite lessons of hours of agony, of loneli ness, and torture in all the million hours which filled up his nine years of en...
Poetry. THE LANDLORD'S PRAYER. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 10 May 1895
Poetry. THE LANDLORD'S PRAYER. Lord, keep us-rich, and; free from toil, For we Are honored holders of Thy soil, Which Democrats would fain despoil With glee. O Lord, our fathers got the land For serving men whom Thy right hand Had chosen to be great and grand As kings. Tho' ta'en by stealth we're uot to blame; Thou know'st O Lord, it is a shame To say to us of titled name Such things. Lord, let us live in wealth's content, And peace. Lord, we are by thy mr.rcy meant To rule mankind and make our rent Increase. The birds that baunt the moors and hills, The fish that swim in streams and rills, The beast that roams as Nature wills, We own. E'en, Lord, the minerals that lie Beneath the earth's periphery, Belong to us—Thou knowest why Alone. Lord, on the ragged rabble frown, For they Are foes to us, Thy Church, and Crown; Lord, bear Thine arm, and grind them down To clay. O Lord, our God, we make their laws, Which they reject with wild applause; Be Thou a buckler to our cause And caste. T...
Industrial Competition. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 10 May 1895
Industrial Competition. The badness of trade, the severe winter, or the peculiarities of our competitive com mercial system—or all of them together, are answerable for a ghastly amount of misery and want. A deputation informed the Mayor of Birmingham the other day that there are 40,000 people on the brink of starvation in that town, and that there has not been such destitution there for fifteen years. Then a Yorkshire paper states ia so many words that "there are 11,000 men, women, and children destitute in Hartlepool at present." When you have added these cheerful items to the fact that one London Coroner held inquests on between sixty and seventy people, who had died from the effects of cold and hunger in one week, you will be in a fit state of mind to hear that it is proposed shortly to give notice of a 10 per cent, reduction of wages in the cotton factories of Lancashire and Cheshire. If you will also add to the total the state ment of Professor Woodruft—who has just returned fr...
WHO ARE THE ANARCHISTS? TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 10 May 1895
WHO ARE THE ANARCHISTS 1 TO THE EDITOB. Sir—My reply to the above question is:— Those rich or privileged persons in the world who coolly look on and see the numbers of the discontented increasing, and who, know ing there are unequal conditions breeding and producing this discontent, still say it's all nonsense, or, at any rate, it's no concern ol theirs; whose motto is " everyone for himself," or, " look after number one who teach their children the same diabolical doctrine; who ridicule the idea of the brotherhood of man, and contradict God to His face, and say its humbug ; who, know ing full well that in the so-called civilized nations there are countless numbers of men, women, and children ill-lodged, and either without work or else overworked, badly clothed and half-fed slaves, many of them being driven to crime, despair, and suicide, many compelled to accept a sort of inter mittent relief, a partial reprieve from im mediate starvation, but whose days are being shortened, and wh...
SOCIAL LIFE IN CHINA. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 10 May 1895
SOCIAL LIFE IN CHINA. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—In your issue of 3rd inst. I see an extract from the Times of (Jorst's lecture oil " Social Life in China." He mentions a land tax as being the only tax in China. I suppose he means the only direct tax, as we read of Customs dues at their large treaty ports. Meantime the tax or rent of 6d. to Is. 8d., say average of Is. per acre, seems very hie;k for a country in which labor and produce have both such a low rate in money value as compared with European countries. I have no references to statistics of wages and living, but should imagine would at least equal Sd. to lOd. an acre rent here. Even here, taking a high average value for our country lands, 2s. per acre would cover all our Government requirements. am, Sir, &c.,
"MR. BUTCHER'S CONTENTION." TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 10 May 1895
MR. BUTCHER'S CONTENTION. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—Has "A Learner" ever seen high intelligences prolific, or a Hodge without a numerous progeny ? It seems a law of nature, but is the outcome of the subjuga tion of the animal in man to his higher attribute. Zeno, the Phoenician, founder of the Stoics, insisted that education is the true foundation of virtue, for if we know what is good we shall incline to do it, whilst every appetite, lust, and desire spring from imperfect knowledge. "Our nature," he says, " is imposed upon us by fate, but we must learn to control our passions and live free, intelligent, virtuous in all things in accordance with reason." As a matter of fact the Stoic3 did so live, a lasting monu ment to the teachings of one of those philo sophers that " A Learner" by inuendo tries to deprecate. But the Stoics were not Christians whose " leisure classes" live in brutish indifference of all outside the pale of their appetites, lusts, and desires, due to imperfect knowledge, ...

It was for the purpose of serving his old friend at home that he had made up his mind to take advantage of the circumstances which had overtaken him. He felt tbat he had already stayed too long in the brokers' office; and it was with this determination he jogged along on his steed lowards the Tanges. Never had he ielt so free, as he traversed the open country, or yet so buoyant and happy; to think that at last he could write home and say he was seeking for Frank. His experiences for the next four days were varied, the customs and hospitality of the scattered ...
THE EASTERN WAR AND WESTERN USAGES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 17 May 1895
THE EASTERN WAR AND WESTERN" USAGES. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—When the Germans tried to cripple France with a war indemnity of £200,000,000 and the loss of Alsace and Lorraine, the powers were passive, Germany was too strong, and the undertaking too costly, and France was a Republic. Japan in like manner conquered China, brought her to submission, and ratified a treaty holding possession of the positions her heroism had obtained for her, and now these Western nations coalesce to debar her from reaping the fruit of her victory. Are these capi talistic governments afraid that a natiou with the education, enterprise, aad aptitude for absorbing the wealth of the many to the exaltation of fthe few7, by their push, deter mination, and manufacturing proclivities, might endanger European commercial interests if allowed a permanent footing on Chinese territory ? But whatever the cause there it stands out clear in its incongruity, the alliance of three powers who were never yet known to forego the ...
MR. BUTCHER'S CONTENTION. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 17 May 1895
MR. BUTCHER'S CONTENTION. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—As a learner I must thank Mr. Butcher for his courtesy in trying to instruct me, hut I must confess to a feeling of disappointment with his letter, inasmuch as he has failed to prove the correctness of any one assertion made in a previous com munication. So far as his quotation from Zeno goes he might as well have quoted i Confucius to prove the correctness of his I theories. One would be as valuable as the j other. I challeuge Mr. B. to prove that it | is enough to know the good to do it. Even the Stoics lamentably failed in this. That their doctrines were good no one doubts ; that they lived right up to them no ODe believes for an instant. At Mr. Butcher's attack on Christianity we can smile. That Constantine is responsible for the doctrines of the Trinity is too amusing to be taken in a serious vein, but is surely one of Mr. B.'s little jokes. Moreover, when Mr. Butcher asserts that each sect in Christianity is busy "damning" the other...

Poetry. WANTED. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 17 May 1895
Poetry. WANTED. Someone to enact the speeches, Which roused as to nobler deeds; ■ Someone disowning distinctive caste, To shame the old-tune creeds. Seers presage the glorious future, But live it before our eyes ! In words you have dubbed us your brother man, Does your heart turn to us? Within us rise Feverish longings and wilder dreams ' Of a good time coming, when love of the race Shall raise to honor, and pride of place Be a relic of barbarous days. Will truth then dominate action ? Will right be revered as right ? Will the worker, under the arch of heaven, Lift mien as noble, and eye as bright, As the leisured earl, in his stately pile, With the dower of ages diglit? We are heart-sore, sick and weary, Our faith oft waxes low ; Pray God to cheer us before we droop, And our heads in the dust we bow. April 27, 1S95. —Mignonette.
What Socialism Means. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 17 May 1895
What Socialism Means. "We publish the following dictionary definitions for the benefit of sqme of our capitalistic friends:— Worcester's (edition 1890)—" The science of reconstructing society on an entirely new basis by substituting the principle of asso ciation for that of competition in every branch of human industry." Storinonth's (edition 1S85)—" A system which has for its object the reconstruction of society on the basis of a community of property and association, instead of com petition, in every branch of human industry." The Century (edition 18S9)—"Any theory or system of social organisation which would abolish entirely or in any great part the individual effort and competition on which modern society rests, and substitute for it co-operative action, and would introduce a more perfect and equitable distribution of products of labor, and would make land and capital, as the means of production, the joint possession of the members of the com munity."
