Passing Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 7 June 1895

Passing Notes, FBt Tempos. 1 The ultra Conservatives had a day out on Tuesday. All. the forc-s of the National Defence League, the Young Patriots, the Independent Country Party, and every other organization having for its object the blocking of the wheels of progress snd the conservation of the privileges of wealth were present. Mr. Jessop, who has done so much for his country in damning its credit in the eyes of the world, had a free fling at demo cracy and socialism, Mr. Symon launched his thunderbolts at the head of his pet aversion, the Premier, and sundry students in the school of obstruction said their little say and were duly applauded by their more experienced teachers. Altogether they had a high old time, with not a single opponent to mar their enjoyment, and no Tom Price to interject awkward statements as to how things ax'e done outside the banquetting room. * * * £ _ But what did it all amount to ? Was a single sound argument used, or a single fact stated to show that the...

THE BANQUET TO THE LATE RAILWAY COMMISSIONERS. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 7 June 1895

THE BANQUET TO THE LATE li AIL WAY COMMISSIONERS. Ehe banquet to the late Railway Com missioners lias come and gone. It was a brilliant assembly of plutocrats, repre sentative of the full force of the National Defence League, the obstructionists aud the malcontents of the plutocratic party. It consisted of men who have " a stake in the country," and who have been en deavoring to strengthen their stakes and lengthen their cords until the whole of the opportunities of wealth production had been roped in, but who have been checkmated by a Government represent ing the great mass of the people, who did not attend the banquet, and who have no sympathy with its objects. The ostensible object of the gathering was to do honor to the three retired Itailway Commissioners, but its reaL purpose was to elevate Mr. J. H. Smith to the posi tion of a martyr, aud to brand the Premier as his unprincipled and cold blooded persecutor. Messrs. Hill and Weill were present, it is true, and their names were...

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE: JUNE 7, 1895. THE OPENING OF PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 7 June 1895

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE : JUNE 7, 1895. THE OPENING OF PARLIAMENT. Parliament was opeued yesterday with the usual ceremony, and in another column we publish the viceregal speech, embodying the agenda of business for the session. As previously indicated, there is nothing in this of a starfclingly novel character, but nevertheless it con tains sufficient matter of a highly useful description to occupy the attention of legislators uutil the recess. The an nouncement that the estimate of revenue will not be l-ealised will not cause any surprise. Every one knows the pecu liarly trying time the colony has expe rienced during the past year, and every one will be prepared for a more serious failing-oif in revenue than could reason ably have been expected a year ago. This, however, need have no depressing effect ill view of the evidences of return ing prosperity which are now visible on every hand. For the present the most rigid economy must be the order of the day, and perhaps it is jus...

People's Column. THE LATE POLICE ENQUIRY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 7 June 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.] THE LATE POLICE ENQUIRY. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—I was much pleased to notice tliat Councillor Kelly, of Mount Gambier, spoke out strongly at the last meeting of the Mount Gambier Corporation respecting the late polica enquiry, also with reference to -the Justices who waited on the Commis sioner of Police regarding the officers. It seems to me their action in this case is in consistent, as they lielong to a class of gentlemen who are always crying out for economy to be carried out in the Govern ment service, and whenever any extrava gance is brought to light, especially when it affects the higher paid officers, they raise a mighty cry that the expenditure is abso lutely needed. But if it was to take one shilling off a day laborer the public wou...

THE NORTH ADELAIDE ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 7 June 1895

THE STOBTH ADELAIDE ELECTION. The election which. is to take place in the North. Adelaide district to-morrow to fill tlie vacancy caused by the lamented death, of the late member, the Hon. G. C. Hawker, is to be something like the "triangular duel" so graphically de scribed by Captain Marryatt. The candidates are Mr. R. G. Bastard, the well-known lessee of the City Baths, Mr. P. McM. Glynn, and Mr. W. H. Wadey, two popular lawyers. A week ago it looked as if Mr. Glynn was to have a walk-over, but at the solicitation of numerous friends both Mr. Bastard and Mr. Wadey enteied the political arena. To deal with the claims of the candi dates is a somewhat invidious task, inas much as each is a popular man, and each has a clean record. The first qualifica tion we only mention because popularity, deserved or otherwise, is undoubtedly in a candidate's favor; the latter, however we regard as essential. A man may be popular, but if his record is not clean we should be disposed to leave him ou...

THE DESTITUTE MATERNITY CASES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 7 June 1895

THE DESTITUTE MATERNITY CASES. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—Just a small space in your columns to denounce the debasing aud inhuman custom established at the Destitute in con nection -with lying-in women. Was ever conduct more vile tliau that which, recog nising the utter helplessness and misery of a woman in her most painful extremity, sanc tions a lot of young ghouls in the shape of medical students to witness an operation which any woman with a particle of modesty necessarily affirms should be of the most private nature ? Why any respectable male doctor exposes his patient at such times as little as possible. There, however, in the Destitute, because a woman about to become a mother is criminally poor (for to be poor is a crime nowadays), every detail of her labor is lie!d up and enlarged upon for the benefit of a lot of sucking surgeons. Thank God for the woman's vote, I say, which assuredly ■will alter matters of this kind. And shame to the responsible heads who bo far forget the duty th...

POLICE PROMOTION. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 7 June 1895

POLICE PROMOTION. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—Duriug my travels through the colony I hear a great deal of dissatisfaction expressed by the police generally respecting promotion in the police department. I know from my own personal knowledge that several constables have been continuously in' the force for over twenty years, and have always borne a good character and done their duty efficiently, and still L am told they are only first-class constables, which to my mind is very unfair. Why do not the Government face the matter straight, and insist on all members of the force that have attained the age of sixty years retiring, similar to the Victorian rules ? It matters not there whether it be a superintendent, inspector, or constable, he has got to retire on arriving at the age of sixty. As the rule works all right in the sister colony, I do not see why it could not be applied here, and therefore put a stop to so much dissatisfac tion. As far as I can hear there will never be that harmony betwe...

THE NORTH ADELAIDE VACANCY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 7 June 1895

THE NORTH ADELAIDE VACANCY. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—I think too little importance is attached to tliis coming election by tlie liberal and labor parties. Although a general election is in the near future, that is no reason why the democrats of North Ade laide should be dormant. Many just measures may be introduced this session which no doubt will require a vote from the elected member. Too much cannot be done to advance the democracy so stoutly upheld by the majority of Australians, and now we : have an opportunity to try and place in power the man who is most righteous in our eyes. I only know of two candidates who have a chance of gaining the seat, Mr. Bastard and Mr. Glynn, and we should find ont which of these gentlemen's politics agree : with ours. But we are quite alive to the fact that the intelligent voters have discern- j ment enough to know who will faithfully serve them. I am very much afraid all will not muster at the poll. That is the reason I trouble you, sir. Trusting my f...

A STATE NEWSPAPER. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 7 June 1895

A STATE NEWSPAPER. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—I am about to tread on very delicate ground, but if my idea could be carried out the advantages accruing to the whole com munity would be so great that I rely on your patriotism to ventilate it in your esteemed journal. It is forced from me at the present time from reading the following item in the Weekly Herald:—" One of the Sydney papers has offered its comps the alternative of a 20 per cent, reduction in wages or the linotype." Can any one believe this to be the act of the Editor, but rather the outcome of those who rule the Editor. Is there any Editor who would attach his signature to such a notice if he was a free man, and if the Editor is not a free man how can we have a free Press ? We know how the truth is suppressed or distorted out of all shape to suit the interests of those who rule the Editors, and how these much vaunted "public educators" have descended into a means to exalt the interests of a class to the betrayal of the interests ...

Current Topics. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 7 June 1895

Current Topics. "Fireside and Camp-fire Song and   Story."—Mr. Harry J. White's little book recently published by Messrs. Webb & Son, Grenfell-street, under the above title, is   thus spoken of by the Review of Reviews:— " This is a modest volume of rhymes, which, if they do not always rise to the level of poetry, have real music in them, and are always sane and wholesome in teaching. Mr. White, perhaps, has only a faint gleam of that magic ' light which never was on sea or shore,' but his mastery of language is striking, his range of sympathy wide, and his thought usually clear and true. Aus tralian readers ought to encourage Aus tralian writers, and we sincerely wish Mr. White's little volume of poems a very wide circulation." A Working Men's Mine.—Referring to a paragraph appearing in a recent issue with reference to the proposed working men's mine at Rhine Villa, Mr. R. Wood informs us that he is anxious to secure 400 shareholders at £1, payable...

Dave Hargrave's Mission [By Harry J. White.] CHAPTER XIV. (continued). " You see I must have some definite port to go to, cnless you let Mr. Winsome know as to sailing orders," said the seaman. " Well, is there not some port you could call at for orders ? You see, it will depend a good deal on Frank himself." " Oil, yes, I can go into any port you pleass. I think Sydney would be the best to call at." Well, let it be Sydney, then. Tm writing out to Dave this mail, ami I will tell him to meet you there ; and then you mast make all arrangements to suit him. I'll leave all m ycur hands. You don't want to be hampered with a lot of conditions in a voyage like this. And as soon as you have made up your mind when and how to get the lad .aboard you can go to the place appointed, embark him, and then, Captain Smoker—my dear friend—take him away to New York as fast as your favorite little vessel can travel. I know there's no need to tell you to be careful, for you know what a freight you will ...

New Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 14 June 1895

New Australia. The following letter has been received by Mr. Banbrick from a settler at Las Ovejas, Paraguay :—" We are getting on very well here now since the full constitution was declared. Lane acted tyranicaUy. He was Czar, and used his autocratic power so long as the people submitted. Lane the writer and Lane the man were two distinct in dividuals. He left us with forty-five fol lowers and took tip land miles away from us. He has supreme control for seven years ; six of his members left him. I hear that they are living very hard, but if they only stick together long enough they will overcome all difficulties and ultimately succeed. Several of our members have left likewise, most of them being of that nomadic class we so well know in Australia. They cannot settle down to steady graft for two or three years, but want to realise on their labor at once, and have a burst. The percentage of back blockers here are a failure. They have no true conception of the movement, and not enough...
