INDUSTRIAL TINKERING. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 28 June 1895

INDUSTRIAL TINKERING. |. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—Many of the pet schemes introduced into our Parliament, professedly for the good of the masses, would be really amusing were it not for the distressing fact that they have such a contrary effect. The latest addition to the long and aggravating list is the effort of the Premier to settle industrial disputes by conciliation, an effort as paradoxical in its priuciple as it was abortive in its application. I cannot look upon its dismal failure as a great disaster ; in fact, I doubt whether it would have proved of much general benefit to the worker, even if it had been the success its most sanguine supporters had hoped. But sucli ever recurring failures as this ought to prove to our legislators more than anything else the utter absurdity of continually tinkering with the industrial problem instead of striking at its root. These miserable attempts only postpone more radical reforms, and delay the emancipation of the worker. Mr. Hourigan who, jud...

ELECTIVE MINISTRIES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 28 June 1895

ELECTIVE MINISTRIES. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—I commend to your readers the Hon. J. A. Cockburn's article in the April number of the Review of Reviews, page 400, as it bears out your able leader of June 14 on " Political War." After pointing out how, under the present system, the whole political atmosphere of Parliament is vitiated by party feeling, how one section of the leading members strive to the best of their ability to carry on the business of the country, whilst another section is constantly prevent ing them, each section making the welfare of the community subordinate to tbeir respective ambition for the possession of the Treasury benches ; and that the exigencies of such warfare elevates loyalty to party into a virtue superior to that of fidelity of political principles, and is destructive to the true object of representative govern ment ; he goes 011 to show that "if Ministers were elected annually by the members of the House they would become the Executive Committee of the Hou...

How the £4,000 Goes. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 28 June 1895

How the £4,000 Goes. Some weeks ago the right Hon. A. W. Peel, now Viscount, retired from the Speaker's chair of the House of Commons after 13 years' service. He had been very well paid during those years, considering that he was quite an unknown man when he was called to the chair; nevertheless upon his retirement the Government moved that he be granted a life pension of £4,000 a year. Mr. Keir Hardie, leader of the Independent Labor Party, was the only man in the House to make the smallest complaint. He said that, while there was so much intense poverty in England, he could not think it was right to saddle the people with another burden of £4,000 a year during Mr. Peel's lifetime. He proposed a thousand reduction; aud not a man in the House would second him. I had been reading some of the state ments made in connection with the introduc tion of the bill to amend the Factories Act in England. I had been reading of lauudries where, under most insanitary conditions, women earned 8s. ...

While Justice Weeps. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 28 June 1895

While Justice Weeps. Framis Lester tells of a Polish lad of twelve years who was sent to the Chicago Bridewell for thirty days for stealing coal. He admitted bis crime, and could talk enough English to say that he stole coal. He served out his time, and then tramped home to his widowed mother. She was dead. He had stolen coal to warm her as she lay dying. Mrs. Lena Johnson, of St. Paul, Minnesota, was arrested and thrown into gaol for steal ing in order to keep her four children from starving to death. A wealthy New York girl, Miss. Sufferin, was arrested for shop lifting. Forty dollars worth of stolen goods were found in her possession, mostly jewellery and trinkets, concealed in her fur muff. The judge called this kleptomania, and she was discharged. If you are poor and take a loaf of bread it is stealing. If you are rich and steal a few hundreds it is kleptomania. If you are sharp enough to steal a railroad you are a great financier and business man. —Chicago Express. The South A...

Current Topics. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 28 June 1895

Current Topics. The Parliament.!— The whole of the present week lias been occupied in the debate on the Address in reply, and beyond the usual formal busiuess nothing else has been done. On Wednesday the Premier in timated his intention of bringing the debate to a close by a late sitting last night, other wise it is probable that the talk would have been extended o%'er the greater part of next week. A Farmers' Produce Company.—Messrs. Hammond, Turner, and Baker, farmers, of Mallala, have taken the premises at Medin die known as Long's Timber Yard, for the purpose of carrying on a Farmers' Produce Company.

Dave Hargrave's Mission. CHAPTER XVI. (continued). [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 28 June 1895

Dave Hargrave's Mission. [By Harry J. White.] CHAPTER XVI. (continued). " So at last," lhe heard Frank Ope say, for he it was who was standing over the other, "you have your wish gratified, only I am afraid the adventure has not come up to your expectations; you see you are now in my hands ; so you would actually murder me. Well, that's unlike what I heard was your boast in the "Welcome Nugget" the other day. It was reported you said you would fight me fair in open field." "And so I would, Ope," said the trooper, who was quite a youth, "and so I said, boasting fool that I was, but when a man is on the point of losing that which he has travelled miles, and risked his life for, why, maybe you'd do the same. I swore if any man could take jrou I would, singly, or that I would have a big fight for it." " And I suppose you reckoned on settling down on that five hundred pounds the Government offer, but you see it is not so easily got, is it?" said Ope. " Well, X should be a liar," replied ...

Poetry. THE VOICE OF TOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 5 July 1895

g ■ ' " . -1 Poetry. THE VOICE OF TOIL. I heard men saying, Leave hope and pray , ing* AH days shall be as All have been ; To-day and to-morrow bring fear and sorrow, The never-ending toil between. When Earth was younger mid toil and hanger, In hope we strove, and our hands were strong; Then great men led us, with -words they fed us, And bade us right the earthly wrong. Go read in story their deeds and glory, Their names amid the nameless dead; Tnrn then from lying to ns slow-dying In that good world to which they led ; Where fast and faster oar iron master, The thing we made, for ever drives, Bids ns grind treasure and fashion pleasure For other hopes and other lives j Where home is a hovel and dull we grovel, Forgetting that the world is fair; Where no babe we cherish, lest its veiy soul perish, Where our mirth is crime, our love a snare. Who now shall lead us, what god shall heed us As we lie in the hell our hands have won ? For us are no rulers but fools and befoolers, The great...

Says the Y.P. Plain Dealer:—"Ash is the politician who was going to reconstruct the libel law. Ash was then a journalist. He is now one of the six-and-eightpenny fry, and figured largely in the Parsons Bonython libel action—on the side of Parsons. We should imagine that the man to giggle at Magna Charta, or even " the man who didn't," would be preferable to the man who is going to do what he never dreams of doing. You can't make a fool the equal of a wise man. And though Acts of Parliament give all the rewards of sobriety and duty to the indolent, the thriftless, the foolish, and the vicious amongst us, no Acts of Parliament can level up the lordly loafer and aristocratic habitue of the Divorce Court to an equality with "the toil worn craftsman, that with earth-made implement laboriously conquers the earth, and makes her man's." Wo Act of Parliament can level up the nobility of the titled roue with lecherous leer whom one may meet at night in Piccadilly to the nobility of the " rugg...

The Labor Party. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 5 July 1895

The Labor Party. The Y.P. Plain Dealer, in its issue of June 29, has a vigorous article in dt-fence of the South Australian Labor Party, from which we take the following extracts : — All manner of absurd charges have been fermented and hurled at the Labor Party, which, by-the-way, has proved itself quite as intelligent a factor in the moulding of the destiny of the province, quite as respectable, and quite as sincere in the desire to do that which is just as any other party in S.A. politics. The Party isn't composed of the dregs of society. It's members aren't pro fligates nor uncertified bankrupts. Be their j fcults ever so voluminous, they cannot justly | be regarded as sordid place.hunters, and it was manifestly humorous for a politician of the standard of Ebenezer Ward to infer that they are a force of immorality and wrong. The wrong is a matter of opinion, but their morality (political or otherwise) isn't open to question, and, although there is plenty of political shuffling ca...
