AMUSEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 7 June 1895
AMUSEMENTS. Theatre Royal—Mr. George Edwardes' Company. "InTown," and "The Shop Girl.5' Bijou Theatre—Hudson's Surprise Party. Saturday last was the concluding day of the A.R.C. Birthday Meeting. Bad weather and big dividends will make the day memorable, but the Steeplechase was one of the bestracesover the "big sticks" seen on the Old Course for a long time, as the majority of the " leppers" stood up for the three miles. It was a pitiable exhibition to see a shivering child doing contortion acts on a piece of muddy carpet in the Derby enclosure. The " fun of the fair" is usually kept outside in other parts of the world, but in Holy Adelaide even the purse-trick man can ply his vocation with impunity in the reserves. Mr. A. O. Whitington has received very satisfactory nominations for the S.A.J.C. Winter Meeting. There are 17 in the Hurdles, IS in the Disposal Handicap, 11 in the Accession Handicap, 12 in the Steeple chase, 6 in the Junior Handicap, and 23 in the Farewell Handicap. O...
The Bimetallist Menace. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 7 June 1895
The Bimetallist Menace. What can be clearer, to those who will think out an economic aud a sociological problem, than the final futility of the bi metallism gospel. The irrefutable answer~to it can be put iu two plain propositions. First—Increase of currency can only raise prices in so far as it increases demands for goods relatively to supply. This is the simple solution of the strife between the theory that prices are determined by quan tity of money, and the theory that they are determined by more or less of quantity, or more or less of cost, in the relative supply of goods. The two theories are portions of the truth, the latter being the larger portion. But in our times increase in demand arises, aud can be promoted in many other ways ; and this one, in so far as it now operates at all, operates less and less powerfully, espe cially in the case of silver. But even sup posing this argument to be waived, supposing the bimetallists to be taken at their word, it clearly follows that...

Trades Unions and Machinery. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 7 June 1895
Trades Unions and Machinery. The " ignorance of the Trades Unions has grieved the editor of Kemp's Mercantile Gazette. These cruel organizations, it appears, do all they can to keep down the use of machinery, and prevent its super seding human labor as much as possible. And the editor is surprised at their " ignorance !" The fact is you see, that no one has yet thought it worth while to pro ject machinery for " superseding" this wise editor. His ideas doubtless could be con structed by machinery, but they might not be worth the cost of the machine. There fore our friend feels sure of his job, and— these things make a difference. If the "human labor" to be superseded by machinery were his, if he saw in the im proved machinery a competitor which might drive him and his children into the streets to starve, or his brave boys to a life of crime, and his girls to a business still more terrible, then he might see more wisdom in the "ignorance" of the Trades Unions than is at present dreamt...
Gleanings. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 7 June 1895
Gleanings. Envihonment and heredity makecharacter. No man is really free until lie lias dis covered Ms own absolute dependence. Every great achievement seemed, at first, an Utopian dream. "Nature knows nothing of rich men ; she bore us all poor."- -St. Ambrose. Mechanical devices now used in building operations have reduced the cost nearly 75 per cent. Individualism punishes offences against the purse much heavier than offences against the person. On* the 31st December, 1S93, the public debt of all the colonies (excluding N.Z.) was £18,226.000. Joubneymen bakers in Brisbane bave to work from 75 to 90 hours per week, and are paid at rates ranging from 3d to 7fd. per hour. The Bank of New Zealand is reducing all salaries over £200 by 10 per cent. The shareholders want bigger divvys. Individualistic parsons say "There must always be rich and poor." Socialistic agita tors declare "There need never be any poor." Labouchere says he regards a bimetallist as either a well-meaning person und...
The Study of Economics. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 7 June 1895
The Study of Economics. We are glad to observe that there is not only iii London but throughout the pro vinces a great and growing determination to understand and master the economic founda tions of socialism. This, indeed, is most encouraging, as the absence of such intellec tual enthusiasm among working Englishmen has hitherto been most depressing. It is high time that the workers should, even at the cost of a few hours snatched from their scanty leisure, learn thoroughly to compre hend the Marxian analysis of the capitalist system around them, any how to apply the constructive theories of scientific socialism to the facts of our growing society. At any moment any active Social Democrat may be called upon by our enemies to give an account of himself, to formulate our pallia tives or to show how and why it is that so long as the system of payment of wages con tinues, wage slaves and slave-drivers must continue to exist as warring classes. Every man who comes to the front is a trust...
Democratic Societies. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 7 June 1895
Democratic Societies. Hindmabsh Democratic Association.— Mr. E. A. Anstey delivered an address at the Hindmarsli Institute on Sunday last on " Effective Votiug" to a fairly attended meeting of the above Association. He dealt with the injustice of the present system, giving many telling illustrations of liow un justly our present electoral system worked. Effective voting was eminently democratic in principle, for it secured proportionate re presentation, giving to every section of the community an opportunity to be represented in Parliament, without destroying majority government. An election was conducted to illustrate the mode of voting and counting the votes, which proved of great interest to those present. Many questions were asked, and a hearty vote of thanks tendered the speaker, whose services should be sought by other societies, as this reform is very urgently needed, and no better advocate could well be found than Mr. Anstey, who has taken some trouble to make the system eas...
THE APPARENT AND THE REAL. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 7 June 1895
THE APPARENT AND THE REAL.! TO THE EDITOR. Sir—The exposure of Mr. Glynn, who was forced to drop tbe lion skin aud show him- ! self iu his own natural species, thus losing the support of the Labor party for tbe more precarious but congenial one of the National Ass., is to be received with feelings of regret not unmixed with pity. He has— unintentionally of course—passed as a friend to democracy and an ardent supporter of land nationalisation ; tbe former is now un masked, the latter to be yet put to the proof. His case, however, stands out in such bold relief as an object lesson for the apparent to the actual, that I feel con strained to supplement it by one other illustration, to correct a public fallacy and put the saddle on the right mare. You, Mr. Editor, quoting from Chambers' Journal, tell us " that seventy citizens of the United States possess amongst them an aggregate wealth of §2,703,000,000." Some are in clined to visit the sin of the extortion of this immense sum from the...
United Trades and Labour Council. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 7 June 1895
United Trades and Labour Council. The Council met at the Sel! orne Hotel on Friday evening, 31st ult. The President occupied the chair, and there was a good attendance of delegates. The Secretary of the Eastern Provincial Council of the Aus tralasian Labor Federation (Sydney) wrote, inviting the Council to send representatives to attend a conference of delegates from District Councils of the various colonies, as also from the various Miners' Associations which are at present unattached to the Labor Federation. The purpose of the conference is to establish the General Council and to devise the best means of giving practical effect to the scheme of federation drawn up by the Ballarat Con gress, and if necessary to amend or rescind any of the provisions of that scheme that may be found to be undesirable at the present time. The conference will commence in Sydney on June 11. It was resolved that the letter be received and referred to the Parliamentary Committee for consideration, but th...
Evolution or Socialism? [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 7 June 1895
Evolution or Socialism? The war in tli of enthusiasm with which most Socialists glow is a sufficient reason for the liaste with which they seek the accom plishment of their desires. They are filled with compassion for the many whom they see suffering under evils, which certainly attend and are to a great extent caused by the present social organization. Feeling this, they are apt to press on their schemes with greater earnestness than discretion. They are ready to arrive at a full-blown Socialist state by revolution, and refuse to consider whether the same end may not be more surely attained by evolution. In this they are unwise. An evolution which appears to be making for Socialism has been j making really rapid progress. Many statutes | will be found to have been passed during this century which have a really Socialist ten dency. Without reference to the Poor Law Acts, which date back to so many years before, and are a survival in the present of certain social tendencies in the pa...
Alien Labor in Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 7 June 1895
Alien Labor in Australia. Mr. T. Ewing, M.P., has an article in the last number of the Commonicenlth upon "the alien." He argues that Australia is placed at a severe disadvantage in dealing with the exclusion of aHens, from two circumstances. First, Queensland is still a slaving State, and out of harmony witli the rest of Australia upon the black labor question. Second, Great Britain has entered into a treaty -with Japan securing certain material trade conceasions. If Aus tralia were to exclude Japanese such exclusion would come into collision with the British treaty. If the Japanese are not ex cluded, they will swarm over the continent as soon as the war is over, and firmly establish themselves. The kanaka question will sink into significance compared with the larger danger. Once allow the Japanese a footing, and their exclusion would become a cause for wai' with Japan, and Japan, apart from Imperial interference, could bombard every Australian capital within a month. These argumen...
Starr-Bowkett Societies. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 7 June 1895
Starr-Bowkett Societies. West Torrens Starr - Bowkett Society".—An appropriation meeting in con nection with the above Society took place on Friday evening at the Hindmarsh Town Hall, Mr. J. Reed in the chair. The chairman stated that the Society now numbered 356 shareholders, representing shares to the extent of £72,000. A ballot was then taken and resulted in Mr. W. J. Wolman, of Southwark, becoming entitled to a loan of £200, repayable without interest by instalments extending over ten years. Norwood Stabr - Bowkett Building Society.—We beg to call attention to the notice announcing the first annual general meeting of this Society.

Port Adelaide Starr-Bowkett Societf. —It is announced that the first annual meeting of the society will be held in the Friendly Society's Booms,...
