" The Root of the Matter." [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 21 June 1895
" The Root of the Matter." The Australian Workman has the follow ing notice of Air. H. H. Champion's inte resting work 011 socialism recently published. We reprint the review because the book is now obtainable in Adelaide, and should be in the hands of every social reformer:— " Far the worst thing about Mr. Champion's book is the title. ' The Root of the Matter' on the first page of a sociological work gives the idea that the author has only one crank to his mental ma3hinery, and intends to find in total abstinence some form of taxation, Mahatmas, or in one or other ideas that afflict humanity, a solution of all economic and social problems. But a perusal of Mr. Champion's book proves that he is not so foolish as to imagine there is one root alone to the great tree of wrong and misery ; he has only made the mistake of allowing the reader to imagine so from the title he has chosen. 'The Root of the Matter' sup poses a young man, George Blake, to engage to read a series of papers befo...
The Wastes of Competition. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 21 June 1895
The Wastes of Competition, i Just think of sending a dozen men, representing a dozeu different firms, over the same territory to sell the same kind of goods. Think of one mail tryiug to build up a trade by teariug some other nnn's down. Think of the millions spent in advertising rival products. Think of half a dozen little stores in the same small town tryiug to sell the same line of goods, when one of them could do all the business and have plenty of time to rest. The tendency to work along the lines of least resistance, to do everything with the greatest economy of time and effort, is what builds up monopolies, trusts, and combines. And it is a wholesome tendency. It will go on until one big combination, including all the people, takes charge of these monopolised businesses. Bellamy was right. It is through the trusts that we are to reach the co-operative commonwealth. -Star and Kaiisan. The Commercial World, a London financial and insurance journal, has a highly eulogistic articl...

RACK RENTS AND SLUM DWELLINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 21 June 1895
EACK EEN1S AND SLUM DWELLINGS. The annual inspection of the city, which was undertaken by the Corporation, act ing as a local Board of Health, on Tues day, furnishes a good deal of food for reflection on various phases of our social system. From the published reports of the tour it would appear that the dwell ings in the poorer parts of the city are certainly not worse than they were a year ago. This is very satisfactory so far as it goes, but is not so satisfactory as ic should be. It will probably not be denied that most of the low-class hovels in which human beings have to herd, even in this fair city of Adelaide, are owned by wealtky people, who, so long as they can wring from the wretched tenants a rent far beyond the real value of the premises, are content to allow them to remain a blot on this modern and otherwise well-appointed city, and a menace to the health and morals of the community. It is becoming much more generally recognised to-day than it was even half a century ag...
Passing Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 21 June 1895
Passing Notes. [By Tempus.1 The following extract from a letter appearing in the Country last week shows that even the correspondents of that hard slielled Tory journal sometimes stumble upon the truth :—" The extreme selfishness and greed of the capitalist party, which has of late been exhibited, as compared with the active efforts of the Labor Party, leads me almost to the point of denouncing its policy. I know of scores of good nifcii whose services in propagating sound and moderate prin ciples would be invaluable to the commercial security of the country, but unfortunately they, like myself, are impecunious. The capitalists here seem to labor under the im pression that every one should bow down aud worship the golden idol they have set up." Just so ! The best men in the country are mostly impecunious, because they have been willing to allow their fellow mortals to live, while Moneybags, who has grown rich at the expense of his fellows, sets up a golden calf, which he expects all...

Poetry. LABOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 21 June 1895
Poetry. LABOR. No idle man has any right Of life's good things to be possessed, For all things that make being bright, Labor has drawn from nature's breast. We pay our passage o'er life's sea, By working hard and honestly ; And men by work unjustified, Deserve to sink beneath the tide. The clothes you wear, the bread you eat, Someone, be sure, has toiled to make, That idler's hearts may find life sweet, Some hearts of workers have to break. And every comfort, every meal, Yoo either earn or else you steal; Decide when next at food you sit, Whether you've earned or stolen it. Work is the only noble thing, And they who work in mine or mill, Tho' souls pull round, not compassing, Are for the work's sake, noble still. The men who sow and reap, the men Who toil with brain, and brush and pen, Or plough the wet and fruitful soil, These are the brotherhood of toil. The fool who sees in toil disgrace, Or thinks the work-worn hand a shame, He is an outrage to the race ; We trample on his very ...
The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE: JUNE 21, 1895. THE PARLIAMENTARY DEBATE. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 21 June 1895
The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE : JUNE 21, 1895. THE PARLIAMENTARY DEBATE. The long drawn out debate on the Address in Beply has produced but little that is new, and still less of important matter to justify the waste of time that it has occasioned. Sir John Downer, in a speech delivered in two instalments, and occupying an aggregate of nearly three hours, presumably said all that could be said against t*..e Government, but apart from the pleasure it affords the listener to hear an abli debater, the speech fell flat for lack of novelty. Every one knows as well as Sir John Downer does the history of the Hospital difficulty, of the appointment of the present Jiailway Commissioner, and of the pastoral question, the three most prominent indictments against the Go vernment, and their coustaat reiteration becomes wearisome, even in the hands of so accomplished a speaker as the nominal leader of the Opposition. The speech of the Premier, who followed Sir John, was of a different character, and...

HOW TO GET RICH. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 21 June 1895
HOW TO GET RICH. Mary had a little land, The soil was very poor, But still she kept it on her hand, And struggled to get more. She held her land until the day The people settled down ; Till where a wilderness had been Grew up a thriving town. Then Mary rented out her plot (She would not sell you know), But waited patiently about, For prices still to grow. They grew as population came, And Mary raised the rent; With common food and raiment now She would not be content. She built herself a mansion fine, Had luxuries galore; But every time the people came She raised the rent some more. " What make the land keep Mary so ?" The common people cry. ''Why, Mary owns the land, you know," The knowing ones reply. Ani so each one of you might be— Wealthy refined, and wise— If you had only owned some land, And " waited for the rise." —Clarion.

[We do not hold ourselves in any way responsible for the opinions expressed in the " People's Columu," the object of which is to provide facilities for the free discussion, within reasonable limits, of matters of public interest.] SOCIALISTIC VILLAINY. TO THE EDITOR. Sir — There arc many who sneer at socialistic ide is as the impracticable aims of mere dreamers. Socialists, tliev say, would dispossess the capitalist or moneyed specula tor of a just privilege ; they are portrayed as meu who would disturb society. Well, these people who disclaim and anathematize have every right to their say, but they ought to beep to the truth. These rabid sticklers for the old order have their regular scribes who delight to pose as friends of the fanner ; they are so foud of him that really they would rather no one else should help him. They will do anything for him, and out of a pure heart will lend him money or buy his wheat, and will never desert him. Of course, they act on sound...

Dave Hargrave's Mission. CHAPTER XVI. (continued). [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 21 June 1895
Dave Hargrave's Mission. [By Harry J. White.] CHAPTER XVI. (continued). Although the rough fellows spent their money so recklessly, they would have the best talent procurable, and woe to the landlord if he tried to foist some cheap imposter on them. Yes, this hall, Dave saw, was the true magnet and load stone, with its fashionably dressed bar maids, some of whom wore hundreds of pounds worth of jewels on their persons, jewels which sparkled and flashed in the gaslight and helped to make up the great attraction to keep the hardy toilers and heavy drinkers in good humor. For the ordinary rough digger this false paradise appeared too tempting; he might get away somehow from the other bar, but once in there amongst so much that was gay and fascinating his fate was sealed, and the chances were ten to one if he wasn't manipulated till he ran out of all his cash he had then to give place to others, and if he grew obstructive there was plenty of willing liands (at the smile and beck of the ...

A PROPHECY. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 28 June 1895
A PROPHECY. In tlie winds of tbe night are singing The storms of coming years, And the dark of the sky is ringing With corses, and groaas, and tears. And loud is the mighty throbbing Of the nation's giant breast For groping millions sobbing In Labor's hopeless quest. There are children and women crying For shelter and for bread— There are bodies of strong men dying By the bodies of strong men deid. The spirit of freedom is weeping— Hie Lord of the world is sad— The Right of the Earth is sleeping While the wrong with Hell laughs glad. The pain of the Laud is growing— The woe of the land is deep— Oh ! who hath the wind been sowing, That these should the whirlwind reap ? The sun and the stars arc hidden With the smoke of the storm's black breath, And the false o'er the true liath ridden In a chaos of night and death. 0 God ! 'tis a dream, and we're waking From this nightmare of pestilent greed To the light of the white day breaking On the soul of the people freed. Hasrt Walker, iri Kan...
Poetry. A LABOR SONG. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 28 June 1895
Poetry. A LABOR SONG. Wake you! wake you ! men of Labor; Most you slumber though you toil ? Side by side with one another, Neighbor holding close by neighbor— What shall stay you, what shall foil ? Tally ! tally! hark the echo Rings across the interspace ! Rings above the fields made fallow, Sweeps above the harvests yellow, By the sweat from Labor's face ! Can you hear it? Ever ringing O'er the level roofed town, Where you build the stately mansion For another man's expansion, While your walls are crumbling down ! listen ! listen ! sons of Labor ; Harken, barken while you toil— Should you dare, your rights protesting, Should you deem it worth the breasting, Naught could stay you, naught could foil! Wake you! wake you ! men of Labor ! Cease from foolish sleep and dreams, God has made us man and brother, Strong and weak to help each other, Neighbor keeping step with neighbor Till the eolaen morning gleams. Matthew Hu^t.
