ADELAIDE DEMOCRATIC CLUB. MR. HOSKING ON "EARLYCLOSING." [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 26 August 1899

ADELAIDE DEMOCRATIC CLUB. MR. HOSKINGON "EARLYCLOSING." Mr. Jonathan Hosking occupied the lec ture platform of the Democratic Club last Sunday evening, taking for liis subject " Early Closing." Mr. W. Gilbert occupied the chair, and briefly introduced the lecturer. Mr. Hosking said :—If any here present will take the trouble to turn over the files of the Register for 1847 under date of March 4 they will read:—" It will be seen from an advertisement in another column that the shopkeepers of Adelaide are likely again to adopt the liberal or rather the just plan of closing their shops at an hour sufficiently early to allow their assistants some time and opportunity for religious and moral exercise, as well as that needful recreation which no person should be without. The early closing system is adopted, we see, in Hobarfc Town. Surely in a grand social and moral move ment Adelaide, the boasted capital of a free colony, will not suffer the metropolis of a convict settlement to be in its...

S.A. RAILWAY SERVICE MUTUAL ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 1 September 1899

RAILWAY SERVICE MUTUAL ASSOCIATION. A council meeting of the above was held on August 21. The president (Mr. D. H. Griffin) occupied the chair. Murray Bridge Branch wrote requesting the council to advise them in a case where the action of a member was opposed to the best interest of the association. The council instructed the general secretary to inform the branch that under rule 79 power was given to the council or branch to expel any member whose conduct was such as suggested. Port Adelaide Branch wrote requesting the council to take steps to have the dis ability removed under which railway employes labor, viz., that of having to resign prior to contesting a seat in parlia ment. The. council was of opinion that the resignation should be received on the employe being elected, and not previous to. The president and general secretary were instructed to interview the Premier respecting the matter. Adelaide Branch brought under the notice of the council a matter • affecting one of its ...

BARGAIN HUNTING. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 1 September 1899

BARGAIN HUNTING. [By J. Bowden.] In the light of recent factory inspectors' reports, together with The Herald's remarks on the sweating evil, it seems time a determined effort was made to check this terrible traffic in human misery. My latest Herald to hand has some pertinent remarks on the bargain-hunting craze. Undoubtedly it is one of the greatest obstacles in the way of bettering the conditions of factory workers and others engaged in the clothing and kindred industries, and unless some means can be found to bring home to those misguided persons who indulge, in bargain hunting the suffering it entails I fear the work of legislators and factory inspectors will be of little avail to check the sweating evil. The poor are by no means the only offenders in this respect. Comparatively wealthy people , are, in my experience, the greatest bargain-hunters, and it seems a difficult matter to awaken the conscience of this latter class. As regards the wage earner, it cannot be too strongly ...

HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY. THURSDAY, AUGUST 24. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 1 September 1899

House of Assembly. THURSDAY, AUGUST Mr. POYNTON asked if the statement reported to have been made by an hon. member of the Legislative Council, that the Premier had definitely decided upon a double dissolution, in the event of the defeat of the Household Suffrage Bill, was correct ? Was that gentleman authorised to make such an assertion ? Mr. Kingston said no one except a member of the Executive is authorised to declare the Government policy. After enquiring into the matter, he found that the report was incorrect. The Legisla tive Councillor referred to denied having made such a statement. The delivery of the Trepsurer's Budget speech and two speeches on the Household Suffrage Bill debate, which was adjourned by Mr. MacGILLIVRAY, occupied all the time of the sitting. TUESDAY, AUGUST 29. The Commissioner of Public Works told Mr. PRICE that matters in connection with the Glenelg Railway were nearer to-day than before.

LABOR MEMBERS IN PARLIAMENT. LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. TUESDAY, AUGUST 29. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 1 September 1899

LABOR MEMBERS IN PARLIAMENT. Legislative Council. TUESDAY, AUGUST 29. There was a Very short notice-paper for the Council on Tuesday, btit the Hon. E. Ward occupied some considerable time by putting a question to Mr. Robinson as to what he said with respect to the Govern ment intentions at a recent meeting at Rosewater. The President doubted whether such questions ought to be put at all, but he saw that a rule of the British House of Commons bearing upon the point had some times been relaxed. . Therefore he would not prevent the question being put if Mr. Robinson was prepared to answer it. •Mr. ROBINSON hoped that the rule would be relaxed in order that he might reply to the questions asked. He thought that the rule was a good one, because if he chose he could make a speech now on the Household Suffrage Bill, and another when it came before the chamber. However, he did not propose to take advantage of the liberty afforded him. The fact that the reports in the daily papers were alike...

THE WILGENA GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 1 September 1899

THE WILGEN^ GOLDFIELDS. We have had an opportunity of interviewing Mr. John Brown, who has just returned from the newly discovered goldfield, and consented at our request to give the readers of "The Herald" the benefit of his ex perience. He was one of a prospecting party sent out from Adelaide Hinder a leader, and he left the city in J une last. He was only on the field beyond Wilgena to the west and north-west about a week, and during that time the party was unsuccessful in finding any trace • of gold. He informs us, however, that the country examined shows that granite, quartz, ironstone, quartzite, diorite, jasper, and opaline exist in appreciable quantities. The creeks are all hard-bottomed and encrusted with conglomerate. In his opinion the present find does not in any way warrant a rush, and he warns the public accordingly. The present find about which so much has been heard lately, is, he says, about a quarter of a mile from the Area Dam eastwards. It is an ironstone lode or...

INFECTIOUS DISEASES AND THE ADELAIDE HOSPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 1 September 1899

INFECTIOUS DISEASES AND THE ADELAIDE HOSPITAL. Many of our readers must have read in the dailies a report of an outbreak of diphtheria in the Adelaide Hospital, and the precautions taken in conse quence by the board of management. The " Register," it appears, interviewed the Chief Secretary on the subject of the decision of the board to refuse admission to the institution of any fresh case of infectious disease. The Chief Secretary in reply said that " he had been apprised of the resolution of the board, but he understood that as patients were leaving nearly every day endeavors would be made to find room for urgent cases brought for admission, while it was improbable that the less urgent cases, such as scarlatina and measles, could be accommodated." Neither of the dailies grasp the posi tion, and if the reply of the Chief Secretary has been accurately reported he, as well as they, require more information. The position is this . The only public hospital we have is too small—large an...

LABOR DAY, 1899. THE EIGHT HOURS DAY DEMONSTRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 1 September 1899

LABOR DAY, 1899. THE EIGHT HOURS DAY DEMONSTRATION. To-day will witness the twenty-sixth annual celebration of the official inaugura tion of the Eight Hours movement in South Australia. There are many claimants for the honor of being the first to introduce the system into Australia, and the history of the movement tends to show that some of the other colonies were considerably in advance of us. If this be so, we honor them for it. We have profited by their example, and have benefited by the self-sacrifice of their pioneers. This is one of the strongest reasons why South Australians so warmly welcome repre sentatives of the movement in the sister colonies. We owe them something, and do our best to refute the libel so often repeated that the workers are ungrateful. In the immediately adjoining colony of Victoria their Eight Hours pro cession is invariably headed by the old pioneers, who many years ago bore more than their fair share of the heat and battle of the day. The appearance of...

Labor Day (1899) Officials. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 1 September 1899

Labor Day (1899) Officials. ii li Mr. GEORGE BRAND. (President Eight Hours Celebration Union.) On Labor Day, 1899, it is fitting that our annual picture gallery should be headed by the Eight Hours Day chief official. Mr. George Brand, the president of the Eight Hours Celebra tion Union, was born on January 12, 1858, at Macclesfield, South Australia. He considers Hindmarsh his home, having lived there for over 36 years, and received the whole of his training, school, and work in that town. At 16 years of age he was apprenticed to the tanning trade. About the year 1884 he took part in forming a Tanners and Laborers' Union, and subsequently was sent as its delegate to the Eight Hours Committee, con tinuing in that capacity as long as the union existed. He also represented the society on the Intercolonial Trades Congress in 1886 in Adelaide. Mr. Brand took a prominent part in form ing the Tanners and Curriers' Union in 1889, holding the office of treasurer for five years, also the posit...
