LABOR POLITICS IN WINNIPEG—CANADA. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 19 August 1899

. LABOR POLITICS IN WINNIPEG— CANADA. The workers of Winnipeg have come to a most important decision, viz., to run a direct Labor candidate for a seat in the local legislature. The Voice, which is a weekly newspaper run in the interests of the working classes and endorsed by the Win nipeg Trades and Labor Council, gives a report of a large and enthusiastic meeting to consider the matter of direct Labor representation. One of the speakers in the course of his speech said:—" Hitherto the workers had voted one against another. They suffered alike under unjust conditions, they worked together and did most things together except vote together. Everything had been promised if they would support this party and that party, but the result was ever the same. The workingmen are now all over getting together, and the parties are trying to meet the condition, and are making a very poor fist of it. He referred to what was being done in other countries. Are we in Canada to lag be hind ? Neither in...

THE FACTORIES AND SHOP ACT. THE CHIEF INSPECTOR'S 1898 REPORT. AMENDMENTS SUGGESTED. STRONG REMARKS AS TO THE CHINESE. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 19 August 1899

THE FACTORIES AND SHOP ACT. The Chief Inspector's 1898 Report. amendments suggested. strong remarks as to THE chinese. (From the Melbourne Age.) Seldom, if ever, has the chief inspector of factories presented a more interesting or more important annual report than that for the past year published yesterday afternoon. Some of its more striking features have been . anticipated partly by the Brunswick speech of the Chief Secretary, and partly by the statistical portion of a recent article in the Age. The review of the operations of the factories Act during the past year given in the pages of the report, however, elaborates in detail all that Mr. Peacock stated, and provides in addition a mine of most interest ing material to the student of social politics. STATISTICS. The report opens with a survey of the statistics of the factories registered in the colony. An increase of 666 is reported as having taken place in 1898 over 1897 in the number of employes in the factories—the in crease b...

A Model Life Insurance Company — The Insurance Times of New York, in its issue of May, 1899, writes as follows under the heading of. " A model life insurance company " :—" Copies of the fiftieth annual report of the Australian Mutual Provident Society reached New York on May 24. This splendid company, which is an illustra tion of everything a life insurance company should be, is older than nearly all of the American companies. Evidently life in surance made an early start in Australia. And it was not a false start Our enter prising neighbor to the south of the Hawaiian Islands has been free, to a great extent, from the imbecilities that have afflicted the life insurance system in the United States. The business has been kept in the hands of educated men. The impossible has not been attempted, and the result is very gratifying to all concerned. The annual meeting of the members of the society was announced to be held in the Hall of the Young Men's Christian Association, at Sydney, on...

WESTERN AUSTRALIAN NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 19 August 1899

WESTERN AUSTRALIAN NOTES. [From the Labor News, August 1.1 Do we, the workers, as a class, understand our conditions ? Do we, as a class, know what we want ? These queries at first blush seem absurd, but could they be truth fully answered in the affirmative ? How many of those who are workers, wealth pro ducers, if given an opportunity, could point out " a way out" of the industrial problem ? Further, how many of us thoroughly graBp the fact that our conditions in life constitute asocial problem! Judging by the apathy manifested amongst us to suggestions and projects for improving the condition of labor, it would seem as if a large number preferred the Egyptian suffering of long life wage working to agitating for obtaining the full reward of industry. There is no valid excuse for ignorance, because there is plenty of reform literature within reach of everyone, the perusal of which will cause an intelli gent worker to realize the present'and prospective conditions of labor, which are...

OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 19 August 1899

OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. (From our Own Correspondent.) The building trade has revived. For the last few months things have forged ahead, and now there is a mild boom on. In different parts of the city new buildings are replacing the old. The drapery firm of Ball and Welsh, whose establishment is in Carl ton, have erected a magnificent warehouse in Flinders Street, city, for the use of their customers. The building and grounds is estimated to cost over £60,000. There was a rush for employment in their new place, and over 1,000 applications were received for about 180 billets. Mothers were to the front with their girls, offering their services for nothing and thanking them for taking them. The firm had to placard the place— " No more applications received." The large firm of " Universal Providers" are about to erect further premises at a cost of £57,000. This firm holds a winter fair, at which the gentle public are assured "Bargans are the order of the day." " Slaughter," " Tremendous," ...

JEWS AND BRITISH TAILORS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 19 August 1899

JEWS AND BRITISH TAILORS. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—Being a reader of The Herald, I send you this cutting from the Manchester Sunday Chronicle, July 2, thinking it might be of interest to other readers. I am, Sir, &e., H. GRUNCKLEE. 187 Jeffeott Street, North Adelaide. EXTRACT. "The members of the Jewish Tailors, Pressers, and Machinists' Association, who have previously expressed themselves in full sympathy with the tailors on strike at the Co-Operative Wholesale Society's Works at Broughfcon, Manchester, held a meeting in the Club Room, Mary Street, Strangeways, yesterday afternoon. Nearly 300 members were present, and they adopted a resolution pledging themselves to support the workers on strike, and strongly condemning the action of the directors in refusing to give an audience to the representatives of the strike committee. " And we wish," concluded the resolution, "to manifest once for all that the Jewish workman will not be made a tool of by any employer or firm in order to ...

A Veteran Pioneer. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 19 August 1899

A Veteran Pioneer. Mrs. JANE BROCK. The subject of our illustration this week is one of a class whom we delight to honor, viz., a lady who has borne the brunt of the battle of life, and having arrived at an advanced age can command the love and esteem of all who know her. Mrs. Brock was born in Bristol on September 4, 1813, two years before the battle of Waterloo. Her father was for thirty years secretary of the Cordwainers' (boot makers) Society, and she, as a child, used to deliver the notices summoning members to the usual meetings, and, probably owing to the doctrines she imbibed at an early age, her sympathies have remained with trades unions ever since. She arrived in South Australia in company with her husband and two children in the ship Mary Ann in April, 1849, and after a twelve months' residence in Adelaide proper she removed to a cottage in Queen Street, Unley, where she has resided ever since. About a year after her arrival in the colony she lost her husband, and, to he...

EIGHT HOURS DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 26 August 1899

EIGHT HOURS DAY. Labor will pass another milestone on the road to emancipation next Friday. The twenty-sixth anniversary of the Eight Hours movement is near at hand, and, as usual, an energetic com mittee are hard at work arranging all details and making the provision which long experience has taught them to be necessary—to make a big display and entertain a host of friends. Although it is a mistake to suppose that the eight hours system is universal in South Australia, we may fairly claim that we are advancing. The public mind is. fairly satisfied as to the absolute necessity of limiting the hours of labor, and parliament has by resolution endorsed public opinion. But even in the Government service the system is not carried out in its entirety, for we constantly see allu sions made to the excessive hours worked on Government railways. It takes a long time to stamp out any established evil, but with the united efforts of trades unions, backed up by the Labor members in parliament, a...

THE HEALTH OF THE PREMIER. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 26 August 1899

THE HEALTH OF THE PREMIER. It is with great concern we learn that the health of the Premier is not all that it ought to be at present. It is no secret that for some time past Mr. Kingston has been overworked. His medical adviser ordered him a com plete change and rest before the general elections j but the Premier is not an amenable patient, and instead of resting in the way the doctor con sidered imperative, he has been piling on work at a furious rate ever since he was returned to parliament. Federation being disposed of so far as concerns this colony, the assent of the Queen being a foregone conclusion, Mr. Kingston went full tilt against the Opposition with the proposed changes in the constitution of the Upper House; and in spite of those illus trated journals whose sense of humor seldom goes further than the bridge of the Premier's nose, and a grin borrowed from the Cheshire cat in "Alice in Wonderland," he sits square in the saddle for a dissolution of both Houses of Parliamen...

Let liars fear, let cowards shrink, Let traitors turn away; Whatever we have dared to think That dare we also say. —Jambs Russell Lowell.

To Correspondents. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 26 August 1899

To Correspondents. " H. F. Bates," Hog Bay.—Is it worth while to open up the matter again by inserting a letter which another paper refuses to publish ? Can any good result ? We think not. The evidence is very con tradictory, even when given on oath. Would a newspaper controversy elicit the truth? Again we think not. "J. Paisley," Tailem Bend.—Yours appears to he a hard case, but the correspon dence is altogether too lengthy for our columns. Judging by the legal opinion, you are unable to proceed any further, because—1. The amount is under £5 ; and 2. That the time has expired within which you could appeal. If you knew that the justices were related to the defendant, and had reasonable ground for supposing that the fact of such relationship would bias them, you should have protested at the time, and if your protest had been ignored you might have put the case before the Attorney-General.

Passing Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 26 August 1899

Passing Notes. Dr. Wigg tells us that the success of modern surgery is due less to improved dexterity on the part of the surgeon than to the recognition of what "dirt" really means, and he goes on to say that clean liness in the dairy both before and after milking should approach as nearly as possible that observed by the surgical nurse. If reader desire to see what the latter is they have but to visit the Chil dren's Hospital at North Adelaide and ask Nurse Hill to let them see the theatre there. She will explain to them the con nection between germs and dirt. By-the way, the nurses at this admirable place now have two hours off duty every after noon, and their health has improved and their happiness been increased by this beneficial change in the nursing arrange ments. The nurses of the Children's Hospital are nearly all very young, and some time ago we drew attention to the fact that their hours on duty were much too long. At the present time they get up at a quarter to 5 and beg...
