Passing Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 12 August 1899

Passing Notes. Readers will recollect that not very long ago we drew attention to an article by Mrs. Virginia Crawford on women farmers in Belgium. The article attracted a good deal of attention, more especially as Mrs. Crawford advocated the establish ment of a farming college or school for girls in England. Many years ago Mrs. Crawford, who was then a very young and pretty woman, was divorced by her husband on account of Sir Charles Dilke. She afterwards joined the Catholic Church, and has ever since worked at social reforms, more especially concerning her own sex, and last year she had the satis faction of seeing a school for women farmers opened' in England by Lady Warwick. There is no reason why British- women should not become as clever as their French sisters in growing flowers and salads, keeping bees and poultry, and making cheeses. Embryo florists, flower and fruit cultivators, jam-makers, and bee-keepers are all represented at Lady Warwick's school. Students are studying ...

OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 12 August 1899

OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. (From our Own Correspondent.) Parliament opened with the usual ee^ and clatter. / The first question to engage the attention of the Souse was that of privilege, mentioned in my last, and as predicted, the Government won. The debate was entered into with vim and vigor, and some hard hitting was indulged in. Mr. Murray Smith brought the Premier to his feet when he sneered at him as the Bight Honorable Sir George Turner, K.C.M.G., D.C.L., P.O., "stuck o'er with titles and hung round with strings." This from a fellow belted knight was too much, so the gore of Sir George rose and he went for Smith. The next day Smith made the amende honorable and all ended in peace. In the future the Standing Orders Committee are to be consulted before any Royal Com missions are aDpointed to sit upon members for what they say in parliament. The motion was carried by 50 votes to 31. The Turner Ministry has put up a record, being the longest-lived of Victorian Minis tries. They assume...

HOW TO INCREASE THE CIRCULATION OF THE HERALD. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 12 August 1899

HOW TO INCREASE THE CIRCULA TION OF THE HERALD. 1. Take it yourselves. 2. Introduce it into your workshops, fac tories, offices, &c. 3. Mention it to your friends and recom mend it. 4. Get new subscribers wherever possible. 5. Let us know at once if you experience any difficulty in obtaining it. 6. Leave a copy at your hairdresser's. 7. If your present news agent will not supply you with it, get another one who will. 8. Get The Herald introduced into all clubs and free libraries. Although we have much to be thankful for, we shall never be satisfied until the Labor paper is read in every worker's home. Adopt the system of " one get one." Don't suppose that one copy makes no difference, because our already large circulation is entirely made up by ones. Don't get care less and, because the paper is progressing so rapidly, think 44 it is all right now." The more our circulation increases the greater the measure of good we shall be able to accomplish.

The health of the whole body depends upon the blood and the nerves. Therefore, a medicine that creates new blood, and supplies the necessary materials for rapidly rebuilding wasted nerve tissues, reaches the root-of many serious diseases. It is these virtues that have given ©B. WILLIAMS* PINK PILLS PALE PE©PLE their wonderful power to conquer disease, and caused the miraculous cures that have startled the scientific world. Thousands of cases have demonstrated that this remedy is an unfailing, specific for such diseases as bronchitis, consumption, Bright's disease, pneumonia, chronic coughs and colds, sciatica, neuralgia, rheumatism, influenza, locomotor ataxia, partiaL paralysis, St. Vitus' dance, nervous headache, pale and sallow complexions, and all forms of weakness in either men or women.

TOM AND JESSIE. [Written for 4'The Herald."] Teresa."] "Oh, mother ! that is capital," exclaimed Jessie, clapping her hands. "Now I will set the kettle boiling, and yon and I had better have a good cup of tea. Suppose we have a bit of toast with it ? That will be a change from, bread and treacle. Is there any butter or dripping left.?" "Not a scrap, dearie," said themother sadly. "I gave the last to the children for their tea to-night. Can you manage to eat it dry ?" " Oh, yes !" answered Jessie brightly ; "after all it is more digestible going to bed. And, mother, won't it be just delightful sleeping under those warm blankets ? It seems too good to be true to think that we need not lie awake all night shivering again. I don't care a bit what .1 have to eat so long as I can be warm. I would rather go hungry than cold any day." So the brave little soul with .cheery, loving words, beguiled her widowed mother's careworn, burdened heart till half her sorrows were forgotten, and an hour ...

A USURY PREVENTION BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 12 August 1899

A USURY PREVENTION BILL. It is with unfeigned pleasure we learn that a Usury Prevention Bill will shortly be introduced here by a prominent member of parliament. Such a Bill can meet with no opposition, because no politi cal party can deny that the loan offices and. loan agents, in Adelaide charge a "day light-robbery" rate of interest. We have, it is true, had no select committee here to enquire into the money-jobbing business,     but the report of the select committee of the Victorian Legislative Council on   usurious money-lenders lies before us,   and we search its pages in vain to find things one-half so bad in Melbourne as have been lately brought before The Herald's notice. The Victorian Select Committee thought 30 per centum per annum exorbitant. Here from 10 to 250 per cent, is charged for loans made to ignorant persons in a necessitous position. The persons who go to the Adelaide loan and discount banks are, as a rule, q...

INTERCOLONIAL LABOR FEDERATION. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 19 August 1899

INTERCOLONIAL LABOR FEDERA TION. A meeting of employes in brickyards, gas works, and tanyards was held at the Lady Daly Hotel, Hindmarsh, on Monday evening, August 14. The meeting was called by the Trades and Labor Council, the special object being to afford an opportunity for all who attended to hear addresses on the Intercolonial Labor Federation scheme adopted at the conference held in Brisbane in May last. Mr. J. Hosting (hon. treasurer of the council) occupied the chair, and there were also present as visitors the delegates to the conference—the Hons. G. McGregor and R. S. Guthrie, and Mr. W. J. Strike (past president of the council)—and Messrs. F. S. Wallis (hon. secretary of the council), G. H. Buttery, and A. E. Donnelly. Mr. Strike spoke on the desirability of Intercolonial Labor Federation, and was followed by Mr. G. H.

THE ADELAIDE PAWNSHOPS. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 19 August 1899

THE ADELAIDE PAWNSHOPS. (By our Special Commissioner.) It is necessary to have had some experience of the Adelaide loan offices, wrongfully called " loan and discount banks," to appre ciate the pawnshops. At the present time there is no law for the loan office, conse quently it is " neither fish, flesh, fowl, nor good red herring," and even those extreme persons who desire to do away with the police, prisons, and capital punishment will agree that although laws cannot make people good they prevent a great deal of wickedness. Of course there are excellent loan offices and loan agents, and these people will, I am sure, appreciate a law for the prevention of usury in South Australia. When an Act to amend the law as to pawnbrokers was passed here in 1888, 1 am told that it was welcomed by the better class of pawnbrokers. Previous to that Act being passed there had been no fixed rate of interest for pawnshops, and consequently pawnbrokers charged what interest they liked. Now the law bin...

LABOR REGULATION LEAGUE. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 19 August 1899

LABOR REGULATION LEAGUE. On Sunday last two lectures were delivered under the auspices of the Labor Regulation League. In the morning Mr. Theo. Gum lectured on " The unemployed" at the Flagstaff, Port Adelaide. Councillor Cooper presided over a good attendance. Mr. Gum said the army of unemplot ed, which existed in every country where modem machinery plays its part in the work of production, is nature's own protest against the unnatural and foolish idea that the fullest use of machinery can be reconciled with the em ployment of the whole of the workers at long hours. He said the remedy for the evil was the compulsory shortening of the hours of labor by the State in a ratio to the advance in mechanical invention. The true function of machinery is to shorten the hours and increase the wages of the workers, but at the present time it destroys the happiness of the very class whose burdens it was invented to lighten. Mr. Gum showed very clearly how a compulsory eight hours day could be b...

HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY. THURSDAY AUGUST 11. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 19 August 1899

House of Assembly. THURSDAY AUGUST Mr. HUTCHISON presented a petition from shop assistants of the metropolitan area in favor of the Early Closing Bill. Mr. ROBERTS asked if the Govern ment would assist the private enterprise of the unemployed in their search for work ? Mr. Jenkins said it would be almost impossible to do that without the authority of the House. He believed there were very few unemployed searching for work. Mr. Holder, in reply to Mr. ARCHI BALD, said he was pleased to see that the Chamber of Commerce had reversed its decision as to the graving dock at Port Adelaide, and now supported the Govern ment. As it would facilitate the action to be taken later he would obtain a report from the Marine Board as to the best site for the proposed dock. In reply to Mr. PRICE he said the amount authorised for the construction of a new iron jetty at Port Darwin was about £80,000. Mr. Jenkins, in reply to Mr. CONEY BEER, said he had received no further report from the sanitary engin...
