HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 5 July 1895

House of Assembly. In the Assembly on Tuesday, tlie for mality of presenting the Address in reply to the Lieutenant-Governor having been completed, the business of the session com menced. Mr. Solomon sought to have a published statement by Mr. Honeywill re flecting ou the Parliament read, but a majority of members preferred to treat the matter with contempt.

Pith of Parliament. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 5 July 1895

Pith of Parliament. The Legislative Council has not yet finished the debate on the Address in reply. On Tuesday the Hon. J. V. O'Loghlin con tributed a capital speech, in which the fallacies of the Opposition were ably refuted. The Chief Secretary followed, and took occasion to chastise Mr. Ward for his remarks reflecting on Dr. Cockburn. He said—" Those who had the privilege, the great privilege of the friendship of the Minister of Education, knew him as a man who was as pure as a man could be in every relation of life, one whose exceptional self control and well-regulated conduct marked him out from the common run of men as distinctly as did his great intellectual capacity." He neatly cornered the malcon tents who had made so much noise about the non-appointment of Mr. Smith as Rail way Commissioner, and said as it turned out Mr. Smith would not have taken the position at the salary, and as it was chiefly in favor of his appointment that so much interest was raised it might now be...

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE: JULY 5, 1895. PARLIAMENTARY REFORM. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 5 July 1895

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE : JULY 5, 1895. PARLIAMENTARY REFORM. At tlie last general elections, and at tlie Legislative Council elections held subsequently, one of tlie strongest points of tlie Conservative candidates was tlie excessive cost of government in Soutli Australia. It was pointed out tliat the sessions were about twice as long as were necessary lor transacting the business to be dealt with, and that the cost of clerks and other officials, printing, stationery, lighting, and "Hansard" reporting was enormously increased by this means. Some of the candidates who talked in this way were returned, and an expectant country looked hopefully to some effort being made by them to remedy the evils they so graphically portrayed. How completely these hopes have been disap pointed the records of the whole of the present Parliament will show. The party who complained so bitterly about the delay of public business have so con tinuously obstructed the work of Par liament and poured out ...

A Fragment. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 5 July 1895

A Fragment. fBr Mollusc. 1 It was morning, and although the sun bad just risen over the horizon men in some quarters of the town of Port Adelaide had yoked themselves fco the labors of the day. The orb of day had risen with accustomed glory, and all Nature seemed hushed as the king of light commenced his task of warm ing and reviving the earth. The landscape wore a garment of frost, and a delightful effect was produced as the new-born light glistened and glinted upon the moistened leaves of the mangroves and dense under growth, causing them to sparkle like myriads of diamonds. The hush of morning was broken by the coarse and bullying words of the hired sycophants who urged the lumpers on the wharf to further exer tions. As 1 stood watching the men strain ing like cattle in the yoke without murmuring, and heard the discordant notes of the bullies as with curses and oaths they ordered and threatened, I thought how long, how long, are men to be driven thus like whipped slaves and spoke...

A Strange Land. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 5 July 1895

A Strange Land. X journeyed in a strange land. I halted at the entrance to a grand estate, where broad lawns, winding paths, graceful trees, shrubs, flowers, fountains, and costly archi tecture bespoke great wealth. " Whose house is this ?" I asked a passer by. " That," said he, " is the residence of the Hon. Win. Grindem." " And at what does he work ?" I inquired, "that he can support so fine a home as this?" , " Work! why, he doesn t work, answered the man, in a tone of mingled surprise and contempt. " Does be steal ?" I asked. "Steal? No! he is an upright man, liberal, kind to the poor, zealous in the Church, and an honoured citizen." T "But whence, then, comes his wealth ? I psrsistcdt "He owns lands—mineral,_ timber, and farming lands, and many choice lots in the city yonder." "With title from God, the maker? " And he owns houses." " What do those who build them own ? " And stocks in railroads." " Then the men who work the roads must be enormously wealthy, since he who labors n...

United Trades and Labor Council. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 5 July 1895

United Trades and Labor Council. The Council met at the Selborne Hotel on Friday evening, June 28, the Vice-President in the chair. Delegates were received from the Tramways Employes' Association, the Journeymen Butchers' Union, and the Journeymen Bakers' Society. A lengthy discussion took place in connection with the position of the tanning trade at Hind marsh, and it was resolved that the Execu tive should attend the next meeting of the Tanners' and Curriers' Union and advise on a course of action to be adopted. It was also resolved as follows :—" That in view of the fact that Mr. Dowie refuses to have the dispute settled by the Conciliation Board, this Council considers it desirable that the strike should be declared off, and that the men at Reid's should accept the reduction for the present, and await the action of Parliament to so alter the Con ciliation Act of 1S94 as to compel employer and employed to meet and endeavour to arrive at a friendly under standing upon matters in d...

New Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 5 July 1895

New Australia. The following extracts are from a letter received recently by an Adelaide resident from Paraguay :—" La Colonia, Neuva Aus tralia, Paraguay, April lT, 1S95. Dear Old Friend—After a lot-of tossing about and many changes, bumping about by native carettas through a beautiful country, we landed at the settlement in eight weeks to the day, sound in wind and limb, and in the best of health. On arriving here I was agreeably surprised at the beauty of the country. I had heard many conflicting accounts about animal pests, Indians, &cM which I find must be taken with a grain of salt. With one exception I have neither seen nor heard anything more evil than the white man; this was an uncertain:growl which I heard in the middle of the night. As to the progress made here, I think con sidering the many changes and drawbacks which the pioneers have had to encounter they have done well. That they have made lots of mistakes and blundered many times I don't deny; but, when I tel...

"The Social Darkness and the Light Beyond." [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 5 July 1895

" The Social Darkness and the Light Beyond." "The Social Darkness and tlie Light Beyond" was the title of a lecture delivered by Air. C. Proud at the Adelaide Demo cratic Glub on Sunday evening. There was a crowded attendance. The vice-president occupied the'-chair. Mr. Proud began by. asking whether the social darkness of which, so much was heard was real or imaginary, and whether by studying its causes they might arrive at some method of improving the condition of most of those who at pre sent suffer through unjust laws and artificial restrictions. He then gave a.large number of illustrations to show that the gulf between Dives, the few, and Lazarus, the many, was becoming wider, while the un employed problem had already become the sphinx riddle of the nineteenth century—to to be solved ere long unless the whole social fabric were to be overthrown. He instanced the Pullman strike as showing what mighty issues might at any time rise from appa rently trifling causes, now that the pr...

THE EARLY CLOSING BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 5 July 1895

THE EAJBV? CLOSING BILL. The Government have lost no time in introducing legislation in favour of early elosing, tIie Bill having been introduced in the Assembly immediately after tlie close oiE --the debate on the Address in reply on Thursday. The Bill appears to have been carefully drafted, with a view to securing the object aimed at with as little inconvenience to the public as pos [ sible. The larger employers appear to regard it as a fair measure, while the leaders of the early-closing movement also:are,, satisfied .that it .will meet: their requirements. Itjis .probable that-some amendments will be suggested in the course of the debate on the second reading, but these will probably refer to details rather than to principles. For instance, it has been suggested that the central shopping district should be defined in the Bill, so as to prevent the possibility of the measure being made unworkable by one of the thickly popu lated electorates in the immediate vicinity of the city r...
