JONATHAN AND CONTRACT LABOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 2 November 1894

JONATHAN AND CONTRACT LABOR. The American citizen is very particular just now as to the quality of the emigrants allowed to land in the " land of the free." He has had his lessons about coolies and Chinese, &c., and prefers to profit by them. An emigrant writing from New York, says : —" Four alley-ways led along the building to desks, where were seated inquisitors who were to decide our fates. To these we were marched in groups. The inquisitors are capital linguists, and never seem at a loss to tell a person's nationality or speak to him in his own language. They were armed -with all sorts of information about us already, as we had to fill up an enormous document before shipping. We had to tell name, age, profession or trade, where we were going, how long we were to stay, who paid the passage, could we read or write, if married, if polygatnist, if we had 30 dollars, and so on. This was all tabulated, and the man at the desk put a number of these questions, and verified the s...

Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 2 November 1894

Notes. TBy Phillxbustee.1 A well-disposed man the other day expressed himself as fearful of the con sequences of starting the Herald. Said Jie—" If it fails we shall be in a worse state than before. The democratic and labour party will, indeed, have a bad time, and Unionism—well I don't lite to say what I think—if the little paper doesn't prove a success." Now, that man was both right and wrong—-right in inferring the bad tirae j our cause would have in case of failure, and wrong in imagining that the Herald having ouce started could be other than a success. The labour and democratic party of South Australia cannot afford to let their new organ go. It has already become a power in the land for good, an.l the feeling is general that it is the Herald that is going to prove the bul wark of land and labour reform in South Australia. What need to say more than the Country says to prove the worthiness of the Herald. "The paper is too ponder ous . . . and is a poor imitation of the provinc...

RAILWAY ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 2 November 1894

RAILWAY ACCIDENT. A collision, attended -with fatal results, occurred at Redfern (U.S.W.) between two passenger trains, at 9.30 on Wednesday last. The official report states that the accident was caused through a signal being mistaken by the driver of the Goulbuvn train, the result being a premature start and collision with the Parramatta train. Both engines and several cars on each train were damaged. Seven passengers, including Dean McCarthy, have died from injuries received, and about thirty-five others are still suffering more or less. The two drivers stuck to their posts, one losing his life.

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 2 November 1894

[to the editor. Sir—Concerning the intentions of the em ployers with regard to boycotting all Unionists and refusing them employment, the rumours you mention in a late issue are well worthy of the attention of all per sons, but especially of Unionists. I entirely concur with you in your evident desire for peace, and I will use my best efforts in the direction of peace ; but I cannot lose sight of the fact that hitherto arguments and appeals have been disregarded. Step by step the employers are carrying out the lines of a programme designed to serve themselves alone, and utterly ignoring the claims of any other class. Now, I take it that these people scarcely comprehend what the result must be. I would ask the public to look up the evidence which lias been put before them of the aims of those shallow - minded, unpatriotic fomenters, or at any rate, inducers of rebellion; for however much they may excuse or shelter themselves behind the law, the course they are pursuing may end badly ...

NEW AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 2 November 1894

NEW AUSTRALIA. The following letter lias just been received from Mr. John Mattson, New Australia, by a Portonian, who has kindly banded same to us for publication:—"Accor ding to promise I now write yoa a few liues to let you know how we have progressed since we left Port Adelaide. We took our departure on January 1st from Glenelg, and had head winds for a fortnight, then favorable winds to the Horn, which we rounded about February 10, then light winds to Monte Video, where we arrived about February 28, after a passage of fifty days. We lay at Monte Video for a week, and heard that eighty people had left the settlement, which news was confirmed when Mooney came down to meet us. He brought letters from Lune, the Chairman, to the effect that there had been great dissatis faction on the settlement, and any who had not thorough trust in him had better return, as now was their only chance of a free passage back in the Tar. We disembarked from the Tar to a river steamer, specially charter...

On the Wing. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 2 November 1894

On the Wing. Six Kanakas recently attackei a white fariiier and refused to allow him to pass through a gate with his cows—they're learning. Volunteers in the old land on the strike —twice now they have refused to strike their comrade's tents. Striking yet not striking. Judge A'B-ECKETr, of Victoria, declares that the way lawyers pile up their costs is enough to make the law stink in the nostrils of honest men. The Judge has been a long time finding that out. Doss-houses in Melbourne at 2s. per week. The people are gradually dropping down to the " jokes" of the capitalistic Press.

UNDER THE CRUSHER. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 2 November 1894

UNDER THE CRUSHER. Just a few words here with regard to the effect that wage-cutting has upon a com munity. A good many business men, I feel sure, have not given the matter fair con sideration, or they would take more interest in it. Last year a friend of mine was in receipt of, well say good wages, and with them was able to buy full and plenty from the baker, butcher, bootmaker, clothier, and every other tradesman, besides paying a decent rent. He was a contented man, and satisfied to live, and live honestly. Now for the change. Six months ago he was considerably reduced. The result was he had to keep down his expenses every where ; less money was circulated, and to that extent the trading community suffered. Bad enough, bnt a month ago wages were again cut with still more disastrous con sequences. Instead of paying up promptly B. got behind, and so far from putting by a little had to take out of the Bank what he had put in during the time he received good pay. Last week he was tol...

Labor Notes and News. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 2 November 1894

Labor Notes and News. A becent strike of women in Vienna caused an investigation to Le uiade, which elicited the fact that one of the workpeople in the factory had laboured daily for twenty three years, and had never received more than Is. 2d. a day. If the reported plan of the mining and other proprietors to swamp the labor market proves successful, the Governments should counterbalance the evil by settling the surplus workers on the soil. We cull the following from the Queens land Worker as showing that the labour journals are no more the senseless demagogic organs they are represented to be than the labour-leaders are loud-mouthed and self seeking agitators :—" ' Let there be a build ing up of kindly relations on an enduring basis,5 remarked the Courier last week in a leading article dealing with the close of the bush strike. The Worker is prepared to subscribe * Amen' to that sentiment. Imme diately after the commencement of a quarrel combatants say liarsh and bitter things whic...

Odds and Ends. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 2 November 1894

Odds and Ends. The Woman?s Voice, au able literary exponent of woman suffrage and other reforms, can be got at 47, Sydney Arcade, King-street; four shillings per annum. Sats the Sydney Worker :—" The nearest approach to a labour Church in the colony is found at the Protestant Hall, where the Rev. Philip Moses has just completed half a year's service. The attendance always fills the large hall, seating nearly .2,000 people ; and the whole expense is defrayed i by a copper collection, Mr. Moses giving his i services absolutely free to the movement. The subjects dealt with by Mr. Moses em j brace all the phases of our social, political, and home life, the central argument being | that until we reorganize the State upon the great truth of the Fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man no real success can be attained.

Reading the Sphynx. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 2 November 1894

Reading the Sphynx. [By Ebob.] We are told in certain quarters that the state of discontent and unrest among the industrial classes of the present day are due to tile influence of agitators. If this were so it would be hardly worth noticing. There is something deeper and more profound at the bottom of it than a mere superficial cause. This is the kernel of the complaint. That know ledge has greatly increased, man's wants hare been greatly multiplied, and the productive powers of the community Lave been enormously developed, but there has not been the corresponding advance in wages. Education has caused the workman to read more and develop his thinking powers. The universal feeling among them is that they do not receive their fair share of the fruits of their labour. Not a few say—" That they are being robbed of what justly belongs to them. They might live as well as their fathers did years ago, but why should they be asked to do so? Necessary wants have multiplied, and society deman...

AMONG THE POOR. THE COREST MAKER. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 2 November 1894

AMONG THE POOR. The Corset Maker. It was on a tramear eastward bound, and on a garden seat on the roof, I had for com panion oue afternoon a slight-built, delicate girl of about seventeen years, though the lines on her face already began to indicate premature old age. We had cleared out from the noise and turmoil, stench and profanity that abounds about the shambles at Aldgate, and were nearing the more salubrious and respectable quarter of Mile-End, when, on glancing at my fellow traveller, to my surprise I saw that her eyes were brimming with tears. Suddenly the young person dropped a neatly-rolled parcel from her lap, which gave me the desired opportunity of picking it up, handing it to her, and striking up a conversation. She was a corset maker, who lived with her mother and a younger brother, and she was lamenting that she could not purchase some trifling delicacy for the latter, who W£tS ill. " Instead," she said, " of paying me for my work, they've sent it back to be altered,...

On the Track Towards Freedom. No. 4. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 2 November 1894

On the Track Towards Freedom. [Br "Bluett."] No. 4. In my last article I said that " Land, Labor, and Liberty" were the three great essentials for settling the unem ployed problem. Before proceeding further it will perhaps be well to state what I mean by the terms—land, labor, and liberty. They are simple words on the lips of every glib-tongued orator, and within the vocabulary of every school boy, and yet I think their full meaning is not apprehended by one man in a hundred, and least of all by the average legislator. Tennyson, taking a little flower in his hand, once said : "Ah, little flower, but if I could under stand what you are, root and all, And all in all, I should know what God and man is." Man himself is sometimes spoken of as a mierocosm, and so is the smallest worm or the tiniest beetle. Each is not only a tiny mirror in which the. scientist may behold the creation and the physical laws which govern the universe, but it has a definite relation to the whole creation, and...

Our Institutions. THE COLONIAL FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 2 November 1894

Our Institutions. The Colonial Fabm. Very few institutions are perhaps more familiar to us than the Colonial Farm. Some people have relations tilling the soil, some have been on the job themselves, some are acquainted with the agricultural area through Parliamentary channels, and some, the less respectable of the company, by means of loan and interest inongering. I've been there myself, and can therefore speak with authority. I've stretched liiy hired legs under the deal of the big agri culturist, laid them down to rest in the mechanical department of the " cockatoo," and hurried 'em out on the fallow land of the " grass-parrot" on more occasions than one. The above definitions will, I think, give some idea of the three most noticeable grades of proprietaryship. Let me extend a little on each. I haven't much to say with regard to the big farmer. He is generally a man who by sheer luck, favourable seasons, and indomitable per severance, added to the aid extended by a paternal Governm...

NATIONAL DEFENCE ENTHUSIASM. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 2 November 1894

NATIONAL DEFENCE ENTHU SIASM. Mr. Hogarth, the travelling lecturer of theN.D.L., made an attempt to dose the Semaphore people with some of his insipid remarks on the subject of capitalistic politics at the Town Hall on Friday last. Circulars were addressed and posted to many tax payers without avail. According to our correspondent the meeting was a perfect farce, lacking everything that goes to make up a third-rate gathering. The attendance was so attenuated, in fact, that the lecturer had to excuse himself, and shut up the show. Some of the Liberals who received the circular did their best to get a meeting, i as they were anxious that the people should know what tact'cs were puraued, and what statements were made by the N.D.L. emis saries. According to the figures quoted by their officials there ought to be some hun dreds of National Defence Leaguers and " Young Patriots" in the Semaphore, and no doubt there are hundreds on their rolls. But it is, of course, well known that clerks ...
