CIVIL SERVANTS AND POLITICS. TO THIS EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 14 June 1895

CIVIL SERVANTS AND POLITICS. TO THIS EDITOR. Sir—In the Advertiser of the 6th inst. I notice that the Government have framed a new regulation respecting the Civil servants and. politics, which says that officers are ex pressly prohibited from taking any part in political affairs whilst on duty, otherwise than by the exercise of the franchise ; also any officer who uses for political purposes information gained by him in the course of duty shall be summarily dismissed. Now, sir, the latter part I thoroughly agree with, for no officer should divulge departmental secrets ; but the former part of the regula tion should be strenuously opposed by all fair-minded men, as it will unjustly treat all those servants, such as the police in country districts, and marine servants, and others, who are liable to be called at any time night or day to carry out their respec tive duties, while those officers in the city offices who have their regular hours will have privileges denied to the country of...

DESTITUTE MATERNITY CASES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 14 June 1895

DESTITUTE MATERNITY CASES. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—Whilst quite understanding tlie sympathetic indignation of your correspon dent, "Blanc," as expressed against what she terms the " inhuman custom," es tablished at the Destitute, of allowing medical students to be present at the maternity cases of tlj3 poor women who seek that asylum as their only refuge at such times, I still think there is auother and more cominonsense side of the matter which must not be overlooked. The whole question hinges upon this -In the medical, as in any other profession, theoretical knowledge is of little use if not supplemented by practical experience. It is a fact, and rightly so, that doctors gain their first practical surgical experiences in the public hospitals, under the guidance of older and abler men. Thus it happens that medical student A, after attending case B, carries on to case C certain practical experience, which before was mere theoretical knowledge ; thus case C benefits directly by the studen...

Passing Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 14 June 1895

Passing Notes. Should a Judge be an activc participant in party politics ? This is a question which the Hon. A. A. ICirkpatrick wishes to obtain some information upon. If one of the Supreme Court Judges is a contributor to a paper whose sole mission is the con servation of the privileges of wealth, how can he hold the scales of justice with an even hand when a matter affecting these privileges depends upon his decision ? Surely our Judges at least should hold themselves free from party strife, and let others fight the battle of monopoly versus manhood. * * * * The finding of a poor unknown, worn-out, starved, and dying tramp in North Adelaide on Sunday is a sad commentary on the well-to-do appearance of the city generally^ and on the social system which makes such an event as this possible. The poor ol I tramp may have been improvident, and may have missed opportunities of enriching him self at the cost of others, but he was human, and in this City of Churches and of. wealth he was ...

Merrie England. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 14 June 1895

Merrie England. Mr. Robert Blatchford, the author of " Merrie England," publishes in the Clarion the following letter received from a Welsh Congregational minister: — "Glantivy House, Newcastle Emlyn, Carmarthen shire, April 10, 1895. Sir—I have just read your 4 Merrie England,' and am de lighted with it. Upon many points it seems to me that I myself have spoken in it. I am a Nonconformist minister. I have preached many of the ideas contained in your book, but you have opened my eyes upon many more. Shall I translate it to the Welsh papers? It will be light and solace to my nation. I will trauslate it well. I love the book, and am a good Welshman. We have only weekly papers in Wales. I will translate a chapter every week. I kuow some of our editors will only be too glad to get it. Will you consent ? Thank Heaven for these ideas; they will be the salvation of the world. This is Christianity. The Christianity of to-day is ' other-worldli ness.' We want to change all this. Let us help ...

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE: JUNE 14, 1895. THE POLITICAL WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 14 June 1895

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE : JUNE 14, 1895. THE POLI1IOAL WAS. If anything were necessary to convince the thinking portion of the community that a radical change in our political con stitution is highly desirable, the annu ally recurring debate on the Address in reply should furnish the missing evi dence. Anything more atrociously in sincere, hypocritical, and unfair than this annual war of words can with, diffi ! culty be imagined. Posing as the defenders of their country's rights, or as the would-be redressers of her wrongs, the opponents of the Government make the occasion the opportunity of pouring out all their political hatred, and too often the personal hatred consequent upon this, on the heads of the members of the Government. Nothing that has' been done by the Ministry during recess meets with any degree of approval, while many administrative acts performed with a fuller knowledge of the whole circum stances surrounding them than any pri vate member can have, and done with...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. We sha'l be glad to receive from secre taries of democratic aud Liberal organisa tions in all parts of tlie colony brief reports of p-ogress, either for our own information or for publication, as we may think desir able. All communications, whether in the form of reports or of letters for our open columns, should be brief and pointed, and must be verified by the name and address of the writer. "Richard Bowman," writing from the Destitute Asylum, says that a statement appearing in a recent issue of the 11<>rald with leferencs to the Duke of Cambridge never having been in a battlefield is in correct. Our correspondent says that the Duke commanded the heavy infantry at Alma and Inkerinan, aud that on the morning after Inkerinan he paraded the troops and told tliem the victory was won by the men, not by the officers. Well, we are glad to learn that this gilt-edged soldier did something in his time. " A Lady Elector of Gooiwa" writes as follows :—" Now th...

Poetry. THE BALLOT. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 14 June 1895

Poetry. THE BALLOT. What do you think a vote is for ? Something to sell for a dollar or more ? Something to cast as you're told to <lo ? Something to give to the wealthy few That are only as one to ten of you ? Don't rail at the rich; let your whining cease! The cause of your woes lies at .Labor's door; For the rich have only a vote apiece Till the poor man sells them more. Who sells his vote is both fool and knave! Worse; he is coward and thief and slave. Fool, since he sells his right to think For the price of a few days' meat or drink ; Whereas, did he cast his vote aright, He and his were victors in the fight. Knave, since he's false to the nation's trust; Coward, because he's afraid to thrust With the ballot's knife for Labor's cause, But helps with his vote to make the laws That bind his fellows in closer thrall. Thief, since he steals from the arsenal, Of Labor its best and keenest steel, Deserts the ranks of the commonweal, And fawns—the cur—at the dollar's heel. ...

EARLY-CLOSING. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 14 June 1895

EABLr-GLOSIiSG. The question of early-elosiug appears to iiave reached a very acute stage in the city, and more thau at any previous tiuie calls for legislative interference. It is quite evident that the difficulty cannot be settled by moral suasion, for although the large business iiouses are almost unanimous in their desire to close at a reasonable hour on Saturdays as on ether nights the fact that one holds out is suffieieut to render the efforts of all the others completely nugatory. The determination of Messrs. Martin Bros., of Burlington House, to keep their es tablishment open on Saturday nights after the ordinar, time for closing has undone in one act all the work that the friends of early-closing and reasonable hours of labor for shop assistants have been doing for several years past. In doing this Messrs. Martin are, of course, acting within their legal rights. So were the slave-owners of tlie Southern States of America when, their unfortunate human chattels were compelled...

THE DISTRICT OF STIRLING. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 14 June 1895

THE DISTRICT OF STIRLING. TO THE EDITOR. 3ir—Uur enemies are very active just now, aud very cunning too, and it will require careful watchfulness on the part of all true Democrats in every district of the colony to combat their cunning. At the present time an attempt is being made by some prominent members of the N. D. L. to divide the Hundred of Stirling West into three wards. A public meeting was called at the most favourable end of the hundred, a prominent official was there to propound the scheme, and what do you think was their plea?—decentralisation. Fancy the N.D.L. being in favour of decentralisation ! Of course not one word was said about introducing plural voting iuto the district, oh, no! Everything was in the special interest of democracy. A plan of the pro posed wards was described, when behold, it was fouiid that the richest part of the dis trict, with all the main roads, in fact, nearly all the made roads in the district, was divided into two wards, with a proposed re...

Dave Hargrave's Mission. CHAPTER XV. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 14 June 1895

Dave Hargrave's Mission. [By Harry J. White.] CHAPTER XV. (Continued.) With strange thoughts and wishes Dave pursued his journey on towards the belt of timber. Poor old Ope, how near might the dearest wishes of your kind heart be realised or liow sudden might the wheel of fortune turn against your poor outcast lad? All, forbid it, kind Providence. Have mercy on the poor misguided youth and save him from the hands of violent death. 'Twas thus our young friend mused till he came t> the creek with its prominent landmark of magnificent gums. Crossing over he found the track and trotted his horse briskly along until he came to the hut, and then after a little difficulty he picked up the pad, and in another quarter of an hour reined up opposite an old bush " shanty." Sure euough ! there was " The Fossil"—no mis taking hiin—he louked like stone itself, the c lor of granite and just as hard; and beside him, and around about, were a few hands from the different runs spend iug their cheque...

Democratic Societies. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 21 June 1895

Democratic Societies. The Democratic Club.—On Sunday eveniug, the 16th inst., Mr. C. Bastard de livered an interesting lecture on " The Education System." The lecturer treated the question from the point of teaching the children of all classes a standard elementary education. The speech recently delivered by Sir Jenkin Coles at Kapunda, in which Sir Jenkin advocated the resumption of the payment of fees, was criticised ; the treat ment of Boards of Advice, and the duties of the boards was dwelt upon. The lecturer gave his views on the Bible in State schools, and also drew attention to the various motions that were tabled in the House of Assembly to lessen the education vote. The lecture was interesting, and at the con clusion Mr. Bastard said that in his opinion every attempt to do away with free education was a menace to future democracy. A vote of thanks was carried unanimously after an interesting discussion bad taken place on the subject of the lecture. The Hon. G. McGregor will...
