Forward! [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 17 May 1895

Forward! Dumas'hero, Dr. Gilbert in "AngePitou," says:—How easy it is to combat against walls of wood, of earth, of stone, of human flesh! But when, instead of founding, it is necessary to destroy ; when we see in the old order things that we are obliged to attack—walls of bygone, crumbling ideas ; and that behind the rains even of these walls crowds of people and of interests still take refuge; when, after having found the idea, we find that in order to make the people adopt it, it will be necessary to decimate that people, from the old who remember to the child who has yet to learn ; from the recollection which is a monument to the instinct that is a germ— then, oh, then, it is a task that will make all shudder who see beneath the horizon. I shall, however, persevere, for although I see obstacles, I can perceive the end, aud that end is splendid. It is not the liberty of this country alone that I dream of; it is the liberty of the whole world. It is not mere physical equality, it ...

EARLY CLOSING. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 17 May 1895

EARLY CLOSING. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—On behalf of the Retail Assistants Association, I must thank you for your timely article on Early Closing appearing in last week's issue of your valuable paper. You strike the key-iiote when you say, what is wanted *is not only expressions of sympathy, but practical help and support. Knowing that your paper has a large circu lation amongst the workers, I venture to hope they will profit by the advice tendered in your editorial, and render the practical help that is so necessary at this juncture by refraining from purchasing themselves, and by using their influence to induce the members of their household to do likewise. The great bulk of the shopping that is done 011 Saturday night is done rather from choice than from necessity. I maintain that there ie no necessity for late shopping, and tbat the habit is du« to the selfishness and thrift lessness of too many of our women folk, who would do well to turn over a new leaf in this matter, and commence ...

MICHAEL DAVITT. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 17 May 1895

MICHAEL DAVITT. The Reception Committee upon whom devolved the duty of giving a fitting welcome to Mr. Michael Davitt, are to be congratulated upon the complete success of their arrangements. ^Nothing could be more spontaneous, more loyal, or more genuine than the welcome winch everywhere greeted the famous Irish patriot, whose coming has been so long and so anxiously looked for by his fellow countrymen, and by reformers of every nationality in Australia. Tlie very heartiness of the welcome left no room for that effusiveness wliich is sometimes so offensively in evidence when some n jtable of another class visits us. Mr. Davitt came, not as a prince by the accident of birth, and with no other claim to a princely title, but as a prince among men by vir tue of the possession of some of the rarest gifts of .Nature, a splendid intellect, a manly presence, and a self-sacrificing zeal for the welfara of his fellow-men. This latter characteristic lias been the dominant feature of his lift*...

Gambling in Land. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 17 May 1895

Gambling in Land. The resolution proposed at the late Anglican Synod held in Goulburn condemn ing gambling in land is a straight shoulder hit for many of our metropolitan pillara of the church whose weakness for a sure thing in the way of corner lots is only too well known. The Canon in the plainest possible way expressed his opinion that the with holding of land from use for speculative purposes was the great primal cause of social misery and industrial depression, and as this is the first official expression of opinion on record by any religious body on the subject, it ought to become historical. If there were more men of Canon Kings mill's stamp in our churches, there would be a widespread movement in the direction of attending divine service, on the part of the " lapsed masses," who, if the truth were known, have more frequently " been left" by their spiritual guides than volun tarily lapsed from the old faith. Some years ago a monster anti-gambling de monstration was held in Sy...

People's Column. EFFECTIVE VOTING. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 17 May 1895

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.] EFFECTIVE VOTING. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—When I was iii Edinburgh a year ago there was a School Board election. By means of the cumulative vole rigidly exer cised in favour of the single candidate nominated, by the independent Labor and J Socialist party, Mr. Alexander Dickenson : was elected, and I think be makes an admirable working member. His paper on " Truancy," in the Labor Chronicle is full of good sense and insight. On the 2nd April this year there was an election for Parish Councils in Edinburgh. Instead of the city being taken as a whole, as was the case for the School Board, it was divided into twelve parts, returning each two or tbres representatives, but no cumu lation of votes was allowed. For the School Board the ratepayers mig...

Dave Hargrave's Mission. CHAPTER XII. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 17 May 1895

Dave Hargrave's Mission. [By Harry J. White.] CHAPTER XII. London—A busy day—An old acquaintance —A little bewildering—Winsome & Co.— An eccentric landlord—Not a paying monopoly — The business — Wanted, a faultless ship and a virtuous skipper— Grief must have its vent—Mutual testi monies—On the way to see the Captain. London was busy—in fact, when is the great commercial hive and entrepot of the whole world not busy ? Assuredly it will be a bad sign when such is the case. On this particular busy day, though, it was exceed ingly hot, and the surgiug throng of workers and idlers alike funied and perspired, com plained, or indulged In profanity, as the spirit moved them. Decidedly it was a drinking day, whether at the bar counter, the friendly gingerbeer barrow, or even the welcome street fountain; the whole popula tion seemed to be imbued with a spirit of imbibing, for the rattle of the glass on the counter and the ceaseless clatter of the metal mug bespoke the parched throats...

THE HON. G. C. HAWKER. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 24 May 1895

THE HOJST. G. C. HAWKER. The death of tlie Hon. G- C. Hawker, which occurred on Tuesday afternoon, creates a gap in the ranks of South Australian legislators which it will be diiliculb to fill. Mr. Hawker did not belong to the laboring class; he was indeed a capitalist and a large land holder, and for this reason it might be supposed that the opponents of monopoly would be rather glad than otherwise at his removal. But Mr. Hawker was first of all what Burns has described as the noblest work of God—he was a man, and an honest man—straight and true in his every transaction. When he saw that a certain course was right he took that course, fearless of (he opinions of friends or foes, and careless of personal or class Jnte rests. He was a man of intensely sympathetic nature, which even the possession of immense wealth did not crush out or deaden, and his numerous benefactions were bestowed without any ostentation or any desire for popular j applause. As a politician iic was always regard...

THE PRICE LIBEL CASE. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 24 May 1895

THE PRICE LIBEL CASE. A good deal of capital is being made by the " law and order" party out of the alleged kindly action of the plaintiff in the late libel case, in offering to let the defendant go free on mating an apology and paying costs. It is as well before the public arrive at a verdict with refe rence to the matter that the whole of the facts should be taken into consideration. We cannot, of course, dispute the verdict of the four " good men and true," who found it necessary to salve the wounded feelings of Mr. Parsons by awarding him damages to the extent of £100. This, we presume, is strictly in accordance with the immaculate laws under which w e are governed, and any suggestion of class prejudice, or an attempt to crush a political opponent, would therefore be wiong, and we make no such suggestion accordingly. It is, however, a popularly accepted fiction that a man should be tried by a jury of Jus peers, and Price was not so tried. Another popular fiction of British and c...

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE : MAY 24, 1895. THE HOSPITAL BOARD. If some of the members of the Hospital Board had not already given ample evideuce of their unfitness for the posi tion they hold, they hare now fully supplied what may have been lacking in this direction. The public who have taken the trouble to read the report of the meeting of the Board held on Friday last will, we think, fully endorse this statement—that is to say the portion of the public who are actuated by motives of humanity, and not merely by class prejudices. The Board have set an example of insubordination and iniprsc" ticable obsti\?pei\msness which cannot I but have a very marked ami prejudicial influence upon their own subordinates. With reference to the request by the Government that the recommendation of the Commission with regard to the ap pointment of two lady [members should be carried into effect, the conduct of the Board was very far from exhibiting that self-respect which was claimed to be the leadi...
