People's Column. A SUGGESTION TO THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 5 July 1895

People's Column. [We do not hold ourselves in any way responsible for the opinions expressed in the "People's Column," the object of which is to provide facilities for the free discussion, within reasonable limits, of matters of public interest.] A SUGGESTION". TO TITF. PniTnp Sir—Most students of social economy have devised schemes to relieve the distress of the workers, so please allow me to write a suggestion. We find by history the guilds obviated pauperism in the middle ages, and assisted in steadying the prices of labor, which is now partially regulated by trade unions. That beautiful Royal parasite, Heury VIII., got an Act framed for the confiscation of the land and property of the guilds, those of London excepted. It was after the death of Henry VIII. that Somerset procured this act of robbery, which was a fatal blow to the English labor. Where is a better opportunity than in this country for the trade unions to follow in the footsteps of the guild ? For accomplish ment let ...

Passing Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 5 July 1895

Passing Notes. [By Temp us.] The Rev, J, W. Piatt treated his congre gation On Sunday evening to a hotnily on polities, but the effort was not a brilliant suceessj Most people have had quite enough j of the debate which has occupied nearlya month in Parliament, without wishing to have a rehash of it from the pulpit, more especiallly as Mr. Piatt does not appear to be specially well-informed on political matters outside of the newspaper reports, which everyone else as well as himself has had an opportunity of reading * * * ° # When Mr. Piatt said that "seventy or eighty tnen had been striving for three or four weeks to do nothing, and had succeeded admirably," he did not state the whole truth. ^ 1 11is would have been more nearly approximated if he had said that an im potent minority had succeeded in blocking the progress of the country's business for that ^ time, because the rules and usages of the South Australian Parliament permit this system of time-wastiiag.

KNOCKABOUT HANDS AND THEIR WAGES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 5 July 1895

KNOCKABOUT HANDS AND THEIR WAGES. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—The agreement for knockabout hands for the coming shearing season provides that the men shall be paid 5». per day during the season, and be provided with rations " at prices not to exceed cost with 10 per cent, and cost of carriage added." If through accident, sickness, or other un avoidable cause, a man has to leave before the completion of shearing he shall pay 12s. 6d. per week for his board and lodging, and if he is discharged he shall pay 15s. per week. Taking a very favorable view a man would not likely make more than five full days per week, and take the shearing to last six weeks and the man to travel 100 miles for the job it would pan out something like this:—Six weeks5 mess and cook's account at 12s. 6d. =£3 15s.; one week's food while travelling to the station and home again, 8s.; boots and clothing used or partially spoilt by tar, grease, wear-and tear, &c., £1 ; matches, tobacco, medicines, and sundries for se...

WHAT ARE SOCIALISTS DOING? TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 5 July 1895

WHAT ARE SOCIALISTS DOING ? TO THE EDITOR. Sir—It is now some 1,900 years since that Premier of Socialists gave Socialism its basis of brotherly love, yet the present state of society is far worse than when He came and associated Himself with the interests of the poor and taught the world that the poor and the helpless should have the first con sideration. He was Himself a toiler, the associate and advocate of toilers, and well it would be for our leaders to follow the foot steps of their Founder and make the cause of oppression their first consideration while they have the destinies of the people in their hands, or an outraged humanity may forestall their pacific intentions by means all Socialists must condemn. Capitalism knows or thinks that it has the toiler under the whip, and that whip is power; power to starve theji into submission, power to shoot them down if they resist; and this is the civilisation of the nineteenth century, brought about by the prostitution of that Sociali...

State Pensions for Aged Workers. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 5 July 1895

State Pensions for Aged Workers. The London Spectator of April 13 says " The Government of France has been the first to adopt a plan for granting State pension to aged workpeople. A scheme was adopted by the Chamber on Tuesday, under which a pension will be granted to workmen who have subscribed for ten years j to benefit societies, raising their allowance ] to a maximum of 365fr. a year. This is j considered the alimentary minimum below which it is useless to allow pensions. The Socialists resisted, maintaining that all laborers were entitled to help in old age, and not merely laborers as had subscribed to friendly societies; but ultimately they gave way, and the Bill was allowed to pass without a division. The credit vote was only £80,000 a year, which must be below the liability incurred, and the Socialists are in glee at what they consider the admission of their principle. Apart from the figures which we profoundly distrust, the vote seems to us a denial of the Socialist princip...

PARLIAMENTARY MANNERS AND MORALS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 5 July 1895

PARLIAMENTARY MANNERS MORALS. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—Some years ago I read Carlyle's " Life and Letters of Oliver Cromwell." I •was much struck -with Lis earnest desire to have a " Godly Parliament." I thought of him the other day in reading the account of the goings oil in the Legislative Council. If he could have been there to listen to a really able gentleman squabbling over what seat he should occupy, and holding forth on his own dignity, he would have wondered what all that had to do with the transacting of the business of the country. But Cromwell's Puritan ears would have been still more shocked had he been in the Assembly when a member was called to order for the use of profane language. At the same time several other members were simply "nagging"' at each other. But let me be just. He would have seen also a few earnest men fearless and outspoken (perhaps too outspoken for their own good) who are the very salt of the earth in that House. I ain a country woman, living at a good d...

"Well, now, if you are satisfied, Dare, I will enlighten you as to a por tion of the latter part of my past career." It was Frank Ope who spoke thus in answer to a question put by Dave after they had finished their meal. They were both comfortably ensconced on a pile of well-tanned skins. The flickering fire from the expiring embers in the little Stove, together with the light from a lamp at the other end of the cave, brought into bold relief the different inequalities and projections of the rocky walls, and at the same time left the recesses and cavities in a sombre shade, thus giving the whole scene, to Dave's imagination, & "peculiarly weird appearance. " The last time," Frank c...

A Lesson in Parliamentary Manners. [BY THE BOY IN THE GALLERY.] [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 July 1895

A Lesson in Parliamentary Manners. [By the Boy in the Gallery.] On Tuesday, July 2, the House of Assembly very properly adminstered a severe snub to Mr. Solomon, theloqmcious member for the Northern Territory. Mr. Honey will, of Messrs. Birks & Co., foolishly and liasti'y cast some undeserved reflection? oil Parlia ment. These were addressed to an Adver tiser reporter, and as a result were published, having presumably escape 1 the editorial eye. Thereat Mr. Solouiou waxed wroth. The suggestion of rogues finding their way into his select company was too much for his immaculate soul. To think of the House beiug referred to as a refuge for the destitute or insolvent, or anything of that sort ,w;s a little too much. " Privilege!" " Privilege f' he screeched, though some people do not seem quite to know what privilege means. Poor Mr. Honeywill had expressed sorrow in the same paper in which he had offended, but this was not suffice. "Off with his head !" A Daniel come to judgment...

HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 July 1895

House of Assembly. In the Assembly a large amount of busi ness has been partially dealt with. On Tuesday the Commissioner of Public Works, in answer to Mr. MacGillivray, said it was the intention of the Government to take legal proceedings against Mr. J. Davey for having in his possession property that evi dently belongs to the Government and which he cannot properly account for, and because of the possession of w hich he has been dismissed from the Government ser vice. In answer to Mr. Archibald he said the Railway Commissioner will be asked to personally enquire into the charges laid against Mr. Gambliii, of the Ways and Works Department, Glanville, by W. Groves and J. Hollow, if further evidence is forthcoming; and in reply to Mr. Wood he said the Government know nothing of any refusal to pay compensation due to Government employes who having worked piecework are not considered eligible, although their names have not been re moved from the books of the department.

The People and Business. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 July 1895

The People and Business. Why should liot the people do their ovva business ? Why should great industries— such as can be made to pay—always be reserved as happy hunting grounds for the enterprising capitalist? Why should the State be expected to put up with Fat Man's leavings and be content to set up institutions and manage them only when there is no profit to be expected from them ? W.e are told that the State can't do business. Innumerable individuals, each working alone, can do business, and make a success thereof. They band themselves together into companies, and often do better still. Then the companies coalesce into rings and trusts, and the bigger they are the stronger they grow and the more they make. Yet their friends want us to believe that the strongest and broadest company possible, a real Democratic State, must fail in business. A truly Democratic State—i.e., the people, is the only honest ring, the only trust worthy trust, the only clean pool. It is the only big instit...

State Socialism. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 July 1895

State Socialism. In Maoriland the province's biggest bank went down on its knees to Dick iSeddon and the Labor Party last winter and wept and begged and prayed for help, or else the shutters would go up next Monday morning. And burly, big-fisted Dick gave the help. But the Maorilanders don't mean to let their bank play fast and loose with the country again. The State appoints the bank's chair man and auditor now, and keeps a veto up the Treasurer's sleeve. Thus the Maori landers have let their State go into bankiug. Well, they cannot make more of a mess of it than their private capitalists made. More over, the State is used to doing business over there. Twenty five years ago it started a life insurance office. In spite of all that private enterprise can do for outside Insur ance Companies in touting, canvasssing, puffing, and blowing, the State beats tliem. at their own. game. Maorilanders for their numbers do more life insuring than any other nation in the world, and their national...
