Socialism Successful. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 14 June 1895

Socialism Successful, When a private company supplied water to Glasgow, Scotland, the water tax was fourteenpence to the pound of assessed valuation, and the supply was poor and meagre. Since the city bought out the water company, and supplies its own water, the tax has been reduced to sixpence, and the city furnishes 200 gallons of pure water for about one American cent. A private company used to charge the people 1*14 dollars per 1,000 ft. of gas. Now Glasgow owns the gasworks and gets her gas for 60 cents. Three times as much is burned, though the population has increased mean while but 25 to 30 per cent. Public health has improved and crime has decreased under the better illumination. Glasgow street cars in the hands of a private monopoly charg d twopence per mile. Under muni cipal ownership and operation the service has been improved and extended, and the charge reduced one-half. The companies used to work their men twelve and fourteen hours a day, but the city only works them ...

A Christianity for To-day. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 14 June 1895

A Christianity for To-day. The San Francisco Star has the follow ing :—It is a strong, clear, unmistakeable message that the Rev. Geo. B. Herron came to deliver, and right well has he said it. He is a theologian who teaches that to set one's self right with God one must get right with man. He is a religionist who believes that man's greatest religious duty is to the institutions of this world, and that no man will ever get into any better heaven than the one be tries to bring about on this earth. He is a Christian who believes that Chris tianity relates to citizenship as well as to the duties ordinarily called religious, and that the Christ spirit and Christ's ethics may be, and should be, carried into political and in dustrial affairs. He preaches and prays for a great religious revival that shall establish a truly democratic republic by securing pro portional representation, abolishing laud speculation, and ushering in a social co operative commonwealth. He holds that " the assump...

Prison Reform. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 14 June 1895

Prison Reform. "The old prison system," said Michael Davitt to a Melbourne interviewer, "is founded on harsh repression and utterly inhuman treatment. One of the worst features of it is that no prisoner during his sentence shall be allowed to speak to any other prisoner under penalty of punishment. It is a barbarous rule. It is a prolific source of prison offence without having any com pensating advantage or rational justification. I also protested against compelling a prisoner, daring the first ten months of his imprisonment, to spend it in solitary con finement, engaged upon hard, useless, and meaningless labor. I tell you" (this with great earnestness) " I have, during the time I was in prison, seen men driven mad by this abominable and inhuman system. I have advocated that rational industrialism shall be introduced into our prison system. By that I mean that prisoners should be put to useful industries, so that a man may know that he is doing good work and im proving himself, an...

People's Column. DEMOCRATIC UNIONISM. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 14 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.] DEMOCRATIC UNIONISM. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—Iu penuisg these few lines I have no other motive than to do gooi to my fellows. I will at once say that, as far as my obser vation goes, the various trade unions differ considerably in the matter of government. Some are more democratic than others, and I firmly believe that the more democratic a union is, the more solid weight it will have. To explain—say a union consists of any number of men, say 200, banded together on real live democratic lines ; not to study their own interests only, to the exclusion of all others, for that would be selfishness ; but to study their interests in relation to all other workers, and to oppose the imposition of unfair conditions or unjust remuneration. I take it that...

"The Democratic Ideal." [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 14 June 1895

" The Democratic Ideal." Miss Spence, in concluding her lecture on " The democratic ideal, the true Christian ideal," at the Wakefield-street Unitarian Christian Church, on Sunday, June 2, endeavoured to give some practical sugges tions for its better realization amongst the community. She said the idea of a civic i Church rather than many denominational ones was a modern democratic development. The religious spirit ought to pervade not only our Churches and our Sunday-schools one day in the week, but our homes, busi ness, and social relations, our municipal operations, our political responsibilities every day in the week, and all the year through. With all the changes brought by higher education and more advanced science, money was still too much the one thing needful in the civilized world, and in Aus tralia the recent reverses had rather inten sified the importance of money. The rich no doubt thought too much of it, but at pre sent the poor and the struggling could think of littl...

Gleanings. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 14 June 1895

Gleanings. The happiness of your life depends upon the quailty of your thought. —M. Aurelius. At Florence, Or., the entire new council, marshal, and recorder, are women. These are now 2,400 unemployed in the Newcastle district, of whom 1,000 are miners. If wrinkles must be written on our brows, let them not be written on our hearts. The spirit should never grow old. He who is false to present duty breaks a thread in the loom, and will find the flaw ■when he may have forgotten its cause. At Pullman, HI., 159 notices of eject ment have been served on tenants (mostly from employers) two to ten months in arrears. Goethe says :—" What is the true test of our character, unless it be its progres sive development in the bustle and turmoil, and in the action and reaction of daily life?" Much as worthy friends add to the happiness and value of life, we must in the main depend on ourselves, and every one is his own best friend or worst enemy. " Ifow what is first and foremost among the reasons...

ALIEN LABOR IN AUSTRALIA. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 14 June 1895

ALIEN LABOR IN AUSTRALIA. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—Mr. T. Ewing, M.P., in his graphic and condensed views on the above subject is right, wholly right, and the impotence of these colonies to hold their own against the concenttated selfishness of the Britisher is appallingly demonstrated by the utter ignoring of Australian interests in the treaty now being consummated between that Power and Japan, and exemplifies the incapacity of our Agents-General to view on a broad national footing the true interests of these colonies apart from that capitalistic class from whom they are selected, and of whom they are the true representatives. Their crimiual acquiescence to this treaty, which lays us open to an influx of Japanese surplus labor, and which we have no power to prevent, amounts to little short of high treason to the principle " Australia for Aus tralians," and every day we producers of the wealth of these colonie3 leave the reins of government in the hands of the moneyed class so sure are we...

Democratic Societies. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 14 June 1895

Democratic Societies. Barossa Political Reform League.— Mr. Henry Taylor lectured at Lyndoch on Thursday, June 6, under the auspices of the above League, his subject beiug " The Evil and the Remedy." About thirty geutlemen were present. The lecturer showed that the land laws were the root evil causing the present condition of the unemployed and pauperism. The remedy was the adoption of a tax on the unimproved value of land for State purposes, and the abolition of all other taxation. The speaker stated that the term "single tax" was a misnomer, in that the people were only appropriating for their own use the value which they had given to the land by their presence and industry, and which should justly belong to themselves. Several ques tions were asked and satisfactorily answered and a vote of thanks accorded to the lecturer. On Friday, June 7, Mr. Taylor lectured at Williamstown on " How free land will free labor." Mr. J. H. Trestrail presided, and the attendance, which was large, i...

PASTIME VERSUS POLITICS. TO THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 14 June 1895

PASTIME VERSUS POLITICS. TO THE EDITOR Sir—I do believe that the young men of this colony are going to let us women folk outdo them in our interest in politics. From all I can learn the apathy and ignorance among them is soinethiug to be ashamed of. IIow different it was in the old country. I well remember away b-ck in the forties, when the extension of the franchise in England included young men lodgers. It was called "the latchkey clause," and oh, what pride, what joy, they showed at being admitted to the franchise. Now, what do we see here, in this home of manhood suffrage? Iu the midst of a flood of literature, lectures, discourses, and debates on all sorts of subjects—why, our young fellows are almost entirely given up to the pursuit of pleasure and pastimes. What with bikes and balls, dances and dress, concerts and cricktt, and that bar barous game football, they have no time left for the consideration of higher matters. Pleasure-seeking in a reasonable way is per fectly lawfu...
