The Dudley Mine Disaster. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 2 April 1898

The Dudley Mine Disaster. Some one inquires why so hurried a movement was brgun here on behalf of the sufferers by fire in Gippsland and not a cheep has been heard as yet on behalf of the bereaved widows and children of the miners entombed in the fatal mine at Dudley. Gippsland is part of a colony which could raise ^7000 in a fortnight for the relief of their distressed fellow-colonists, besides sending food and clothing; the Gov ernment being asked and apparently willing to devote a very large sum to repair the roads of the devastated dis trict and thus, no doubt, enable many of the people to <-am lheir own living, as, being a somewhat sturdy race there, they prefer to do. If there is one class of [rersons more than another that requires assistance, and prompt assis tance too, it is the widows and orphans of miners. Mostly, niiners are poor, very poor, because usually improvident, but also because they do a great deal of hard and dangerous work for small pay, and this th...

Tlie Home. Tho Standard of Motherhood. Woman's peculiar opportunity for ac complishing a. certain good work in this world ihas not boon clearly seen nor adequately lived up to. The one possi bility which has been hers alone she has never thoroughly appreciated. The one special function which the senti ment of the past (and much of the senti .uient of the present) has seen fit to relegate to her as her only excuse for existence, she has not justified—that is, to 'bring into being and mould tlhe char acter of the future .race. That this, the ever present fact, ihas been so little an ideal, is proven in the types of hu manity that exist .to-day, and agaJhst which the cry is raised as violators of our social order. ■ The importance of the mother's mission, in its wide sig nificance, lias certainly not been real ised as it-miglit be, and as it could 'be.
