EIGHT HOURS DAY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 9 September 1899

EIGHT HOURS DAY. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—I intended writing you on this sub ject before the celebration, but seeing your comments prior to that occasion thought they were sufficient to rouse or shame into energy the utter indifference displayed by those for whom all past and present agitation and honest work has been put into the movement for establishing eight hours for labor. They failed to do so, and I, in common with many who sympathise with the movement for upraising the too long downtrodden, can no longer remain silent. Here is a national holiday, proclaimed and held throughout the length and breath of the land to celebrate—what ? We are in the throes of a great struggle for an amendment of the Constitution. Why ? To emphasise the principle that eight hours is the extreme limit at which it is reasonable to ask the laborer to graft, and the Household Suffrage Bill to enable the will of the people to be carried out. A holiday granted to celebrate the event, and what became of those w...

SENSATION AT LAIRG. A SUCCESSFUL VENTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 9 September 1899

SENSATION AT LAIRG. A,., 'There is little if any exaggeration in all that has been written and said of late about the bard times experienced asthe result of a succession of bad seasons, general tightness of the money market, &c. < We find a £qw short years have brought about an evolution as unappreciated as unexpected. " In' the good old days," we are told, " one could not help making money, everything turned to, gold," but now that times are so bad, and what was the Tule 'formerly is the exception, it comes as a reliefand pleasure to hear of a successful venture. . It' was, therefore, with a keen taste for the'work that our reporter, catching the interest centred in Mr. William Gunn's good for tune, hastened to pay that gentleman a call at his residence, Lairg Station. It was at once evident that Mr. Gunn was delighted at the change in his life which the last few months had wrought, for, as he said, " Nothing will please me better than to give you the information...

OUR ROLL OF HONOR. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 9 September 1899

OUR ROLL OF HONOR. Mr. LACY ROGERS. This week we give the portrait of another active and consistent worker in. the cause of Labor. Mr. Lacy Rogers, the secretary of the Operative Masons and Bricklayers' Society, is a native of South Australia, and was born on July 29, 1860. His father was a contractor and the son had in consequence every opportunity of learning the trade of a bricklayer under his watchful eye. It was some eighteen years ago when Mr. Rogers first identified himself with the Labor move ment, and he has belonged to the Masons and Bricklayers' Society about sixteen years. He was appointed treasurer to this important body in 1890 and held the position for two years, when he was chosen as secretary, a post which he has filled with con spicuous ability until the present time. During the whole period of its existence he acted as delegate to the Building Trades Council, worthily representing his society thereon. He is a delegate to the Eight Hours Celebration Union, and was ...

Passing Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 9 September 1899

Passing Notes. Last week we drew attention to what boys ought not to do and be, and no sooner was the ink dry on the paper than Alfred Howard's brave conduct came along to illustrate the sort of behaviour we would like to see boys imitate. Alfred Howard deserves the Victoria Cross, for he is made of the stuff Mr. Fitchett wrote about in " Deeds that Won the Empire." A good deal has been said against boy tram conductors, but it would appear that some of them are quite equal to their position, which is not only to open and shut doors, take fares, and see that passengers are comfortable and well behaved, but also to show the stuff Australian boys are made of when " stuck up." Alfred Howard told his story very simply at the detective office on Wednes day, the 30th ult. He said that he was . on the Marryatville car at 8*30 p.m. the previous night, and while coming down Dequetteville Terrace a man jumped out of a dark place between Angas and Wake field Streets and sprang on the steps. A p...

LABOR REGULATION LEAGUE. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 9 September 1899

LABOR REGULATION LEAGUE. Mr. Tbeo. Gum lectured at the Flagstaff, Fort Adelaide, on Sunday morning, on "Effective Voting " Mr. Willis presided over a fair attendance of workers. The lecturer said there were four distinct stages in the evolution of parliamentary repre sentation. The first stage was that of formal representation. based upon despotic rule, as where a despotic monarch, in order to give a show of parliamentary representation, •divides his empire into districts and himself appoints men to represent them. The second was minority representation based upon minority rule, such as we have in the Upper House of our parliament. The third was majority representation based upon majority rule, such as we have in the present House of Assembly. The fourth and final stage was proportional representation based upon democratic rule. Mr. Gum showed very clearly that the present system of voting was all in favor of the Conservative party, because Conservative politics 'were necessarily un...

MUNICIPALIZATION OF TRAMWAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 9 September 1899

municipalization of tramways. Now that a majority of the shareholders of our principal train company have decided in their own minds to sell their rights to a foreign company, it is as well to remind them that we, the public, have also rights, and we intend' to conserve them. We want all trams, whether run by horse or electricity, to be in our own hands, either by the muni cipal authorities or the Government. That it is profitable municipal trading is proved from the following cutting from an ex change :— The Glasgow Tramways Committee are to be cordially congratulated on the step they took on Wednesday in deciding to recom mend to the corporation an increase of Is. a week to the wages of the general traffic staff comprising drivers, conductors, horse keepers, car-cleaners, and others. This will involve a total annual outlay of £5,300, but fortunately, the department can afford it. The committee have simply followed what must have been felt as a general opinion that the working staf...

OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 9 September 1899

OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. (From our Own Correspondent.) Allow me to congratulate you upon your splendid Eight Hours number ; it is tip top, and should be a welcome guest to all workers. The photo, gallery is most interesting, the faces of the old warriors are cheering, and of the new, hopeful. One must acknowledge that the Labor movement is helped wonderfully by having its leaders and workers reproduced in the lifelike way The Herald has done. The biographical sketches are good intro ductions, and will convey to the outsider the fact that he can trust, politically, men of the stamp therein set forth. One feels a pardonable pride in and for their Party by those who compose it. It's not their respectability nor their numbers, but their sterling honesty, their unswerving attachment to principles that is winning, and will yet win, greater concessions and create better conditions for humanity. The potentiality of the Labor movement is yet to be fell. We are but sowing for others to reap. Mos...

VALUABLE ADVICE TO CLEVER YOUNG MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 9 September 1899

VALUABLE ADVICE TO CLEVER YOUNG MEN. The young men of to-day are the old men of to-morrow. It is to them that we must look to to take up our work when premoni tory symptoms of an approaching dissolu tion attack we elders. Knowing that they must take up our work, and having given them out of the wealth of our experience the best start in the way of progress, we feel that the danger of " swelled head " has yet to be overcome by them in order that they may be better fitted to fight the good fight. It is for this reason alone that we append the following *' Advice to a Graduate," given by the Burlington Hawk eye :— Remember, son, that the world is older than you are by several years; that for thousands of years it) has been so full of men smarter and better younger men than yourself that their feet stuck out of the dormer windows ; that when they died the old globe went wagging on, and not one man in ten million went to the funeral or even heard of the death.

CRAZY PATCHWORK. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 9 September 1899

CRAZY PATCHWORK. Teresa."] I dreamt I was wandering through the streets of a very beautiful city. The buildings were composed of a translucent material resembling the pearL The inhabi tants all looked bright and happy, and I saw no signs of sickness, poverty, or even old age. I could not help being struck with surprise at the noble appearance of the men whom I met. Such a mixture of manly strength and dignity, combined with beauty of feature and nameless frankness and purity of expression, I never remembered seeing before except in the faces of very young and lovable boy children. I saw a fine-looking building bearing the inscription of " Women's Society of Mutual Improvement and Psycho logical Research." I felt a great desire to enter, not unmixed with a certain timidity and shame, for I noticed how shabby and dusty I looked, and I thought to myself what an odd contrast I must present to the bright looking denizens of this wonderful city. However, as no one seemed to heed or even s...

THURSDAY, AUGUST 31. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 9 September 1899

THUBSDAY, AUGUST 31. Mr. CONEYBEER said he wished to make a personal explanation. A few days ago he pat a question to the Minister of Education concerning a school in East Torrens. Unfortunately, in picking up his paper he read the wrong name—Marryat ville school instead of Burnside. He extremely regretted that he had mentioned the wrong name, because the Marryatville school was in an exceedingly good condition, a new building, well managed ; and he was sorry to say that the Burnside school was just the reverse. Mr. ARCHIBALD asked the Attorney General whether he was aware of the delay business people of Port Adelaide were put to in connection with the Local Court work. One day last week the officer was absent from the court from 10.30 a.m. until 3.30 p.m. He was a very diffident gentleman, but of course he could not be in two places at the same time. Would the Attorney General take steps to provide better facili ties for the transaction of the ordinary business of the Court? The At...

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 6. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 9 September 1899

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 6. The Treasurer told Mr. ROBERTS that arrangements had been made with the master or agents of the ship Pathan, from which a Chinaman escaped at Port Pirie the previous week, that he should be caught and taken away at the earliest possible moment. He had been captured, and he be lieved would be taken away that afternoon or next day. The Minister of Education informed Mr. CONEYBEER that the schoolmaster at Burnside School paid his own house rent.. He understood that the reason for his moving from the house near the school was not because it was not fit for habitation, but that it was not large enough for his family. The Attorney-General, in answer to Mr. HUTCHISON, said the candidates who at the last two general elections failed to send in returns of their election expenses were:—General elections, 1896—West Ade laide, Charles Beer; North Adelaide, Charles Tucker; West Torrens, Benjamin Gould ; Yorke's Peninsula, James Hugh Sin clair ; Northern Territory, Frederi...
