Marine Board are admitting that they have been asleep in the past, and are now asking the Government to keep them posted with shipping legislation, that is being pro moted elsewhere. " What spor...

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 2 November 1894

TO THE EDITOR. Sir—"Aristides," in your issue of 19th, seems to imply that Mr. Henry George, " the prince of modern political economists," damaged the cause upheld in his world known and appreciated work, "Progress and Poverty," by his Adelaide lectures, and that " still further mischief was done to the cause by a small band of sincere but mis guided land reformers." How patronisingly he speaks of them. He also seems to imply that the Register and Mr. Sellar managed things much better. While thanking them for what they did in the past, I don't think either are perfect examples of consistancy and loyalty to the cause mentioned. As to the " mischief doneif the fact that there are now about a score of persons throughout the colony who understand and appreciate the teachings of Henry George for one who knew anything definite about them before the lectures were given, is an indication of the amount of mischief done, then " Aris tides" is perfectly right. But I would ask mischief to whom ...

People's Column. [Letters must be condensed, and to the point.] PROFESSIONALISM ON OUR RAILWAYS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 2 November 1894

People's Column. [.Letters must be condensed, and to the point.] PROFESSIONALISM ON OUR RAIL WAYS. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—la "view of wliat has lately tran spired in oar House of Parliament regarding the working of our railways, may I be per mitted to point out an evil that undoubtedly exists, and which is permeating the whole of the service, and by so doing show the public that the railway service as now organized is in the interests of the engineer ing profession exclusively. At present we are paying some £10,000 per annum for a staff of resident engineers, who have abso lutely nothing to do, as any practical rail way man knows. This staff of engineers could be dispensed with, and the money applied to paying the interest on our debt, without in the least interfering with the efficiency of the railway staff. The Railway Commissioners in their annual report the other day say that such a change as indi cated above would prove disastrous to the colony, but broad assertion is no argument, ...

Local News. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 2 November 1894

Local News. The Country wants newspapers to be carried at a farthing postal rate. If what an old farmer tells us is true, the Country would be better pleased if the Govenment carried around newspapers for nothing. He says, " Our people get 'em sent gratis, you know." Of course, then, it presses hard on the Country to give the paper away and find the stamp as well. We asked for suggestions, and there's no mistake about it, we're receiving them pretty freely. Well, we are glad to get them, only we must be excused for not acting upon them all. Some people suggest more light I reading ; some more heavy. Some would like to see a page of jokes avid others a tlivee colunm sermon inserted weekly. " The land question " is the sole cry of a goodly number, and "No single tax" the hysterical shriek of still another party. But with aJl the various opinions and multitude of well meant counsels, we are not going to lose our head, but intend just to pilot our little labor and democratic craft throu...

Drama and Music. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 2 November 1894

Drama and Music. [By Akiel.] At the liieatre Koyal 'Lacly Wmdemere s Fan" was played for the last time on Tues day evening, " She Stoops to Conquer" holding the boards on Wednesday and Thursday. To-night and Saturday " A Village Priest" will be produced. Oliver Goldsmith's old comedy, " She Stoops to Conquer," has given the Brough Boucicault Company another opportunity of showing the versatility of the members of the combination. Mrs. Brough made a charming Miss Hardcastle; and Miss Romer, as Mrs. Hardcastle, played a difficult character without exaggeration, her scenes with Tony immensely amusing the audience. Mr. Brough kept the house in a continued simmer of laughter all the time he was on the stage, and the character could not have been better played, for this clever comedian never descends to vulgarity. Mr. Titheradge, Mr. Ward, Mr. Borrington, and Miss Temple, all deserve conimeudation ; and in the subordinate parts Mr. Carey, as Dig gory, stood out prominently. Miss Hardcastl...

Editorial Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 2 November 1894

Editorial Notes. Unionist co-operation will work reform in a far more permanent manner than strikes. Imagine 12,000 Unionists wharf labourers who each pay 2s. per week for one short year, into the common fund, what happens? Why, their combined capital at the end of the twelve months amounts to over £62,000—the price of a small line of coasting steamers. Again, let a like number of colliers put 2s. each per week into a common fund, $nd in the course of a year they could buy up the controlling interest in two or three collieries. What then can be done i» twenty years. This is startling—no doubt about it. =* * * * Again, here in Australia what is to stop •a dozen able young fellows, who do not mind roughing it, from putting their savings together and taking up a block of country and stocking it ? Nothing, I say; tliey could manage to build up a profitable. concern with little risk. If they could live comfortably as their own masters they would be doing more, pro bably, than if they wer...

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE: NOVEMBER 2, 1894. CO-OPERATION. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 2 November 1894

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE : NOVEMBER 2, 1894, CO-OPERATIOK. The subject of eo-cpsration has re ceived far too little attention attlie Lands of Unionists in the past, and jet it is not too much to say that in its practice lies the solution of many labour difficulties. When Unionists awake to the possi bilities of co-operation in connection with industrial and trading relations they will find a power in their hands before which individual monopoly will have to take a back seat. But their co-operative schemes must be on a sound economical basis. To band together with a view of getting adequate strike pay in case of hostilities with, capital cannot be regarded as a blight stroke of genius. There is some thing infinitely better for co-operation to do than this. No truer statement has ever been made than that by Glacier— " If a fraction of the money spent un availingly on strikes were devoted to combined political and industrial effort the difficulties and disabilities under which labou...

Parliamentary Mems. EMPLOYERS' LIABILITY BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 2 November 1894

Parliamentary Mems. [By Gallery Max.] EMPLOYERS' LIABILITY BILL. The Register declares the Employers Liability Bill to be a crowning specimen of folly and unfairness. This is in keeping with everything else the Register says of late. There is only one side to the capitalistic paper's politics now, and one does not require a pair of doubly powerful magnifying pebbles to distinguish it. In introducing the above mentioned Bill, South Australia is only coming into line with the most modern legislative efforts ill the cause of reform. As ably pointed out in the Advertiser of a few days ago, the very clauses about which the Opposition is making so much ado were agreed to by both Commons and Lords in the old land, and the "liability" measure, similar to that introduced by the Kingston Government, was lost to the people simply because the Commons would not accept an amendment from the Lords providing for contracting outside the provisions of the Bill. With everything else the Lords were sat...

Trade and Labor Unions. S.A. Tobacco Twisters' Union. — A meeting of the above was held at the Selborne Hotel oil Wednesday evening, there being a good attendance of members. A circular was received from the Secretary of the Communistic Mining Company, ask ing what amount the Union could grant them. It was decided to loan them £5. Tickets were received from the Brewers' Employ^' Union, for a concert to be held in aid of the wife of a deceased member. It was also resolved that an advertisement be inserted in the Weekly Herald for one quarter, and great surprise was evinced at the boycott that had been put on the paper, and members promised that unless their newsagents sold the Herald tliey would not buy any other papers from them. A motion was tabled that the Society withdraw from the Eight-Hours' Celebration Committee, because of the manner it is carried oil, and farther discussion was adjourned till the next meeting.

DEMOCRATIC CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 2 November 1894

DEMOCRATIC CLUB. Mr. T. Price, M.P., lectured on "The River Murray and Village Settlements" at the above club on Sunday evening. The Vice-President (Mr. Matthews) occupied the chair. There was an excellent attendance. Mr. Price explained that the village settle- ment scheme as now carried out was in no way opposed to the spirit of the system of encouraging homestead blocks, but it had evolved an immense amount of good in the matter of an over-provided labor market. The Government of the day had attempted to meet the unemployed difficulty in two ways—first, by providing partial employ- ment on the deep-drainage works, and later on by encouraging the village settlements. Personal inspection of the settlements had satisfied him that they might be best de- scribed as an effort to reclaim by industrial influences a section which lies below the real body of self-supporting labor, unem- ployed because it was superfluous, and by some considered eminently worthless. After treating his subjec...

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 2 November 1894

TO THE EDITOR. Sir—In reference to a point that is now often raised, namely, as to success of tbe Weekly Herald, I wish to state that I have grave fears that it may go under, owing to financial difficulties, like that outspoken advocate of freedom, The Voice, which pre ceded it. It is with the idea that these difficulties may overtake the paper that I wish to offer to you the following proposi tion :—Suppose that a small sheet of paper (which could be called " the return sheet"), and about the size of an ordinary handbill, were issued with every number of the Weekly Herald. This return sheet could contain a few choice remarks on the main questions of the day, printed on one side of the sheet only, and the paper might be red or some other attractive colour. The price of the Heralds could then be raised to twopence each, and this return sheet would only make a fractional addition to the expenses of the paper. But any one could then get the Weekly Herald for one penny if they wished to...

Cycling Notes. FBy Dunlop.1 The race meeting to be held on the 24th of this month on the new oval at the back of the Exhibition is expected to be one of the most successful ever held in Adelaide. There are no less a number than 136 entrants for the different events, including the cream of South Australian riders, and Don Walker, the crack Victorian. The new track is now finished, and those desirous of doing so can train thereon on payment of 2s. 6d. per month, or £1 Is. per annum ; tickets to be obtained from Mr. Owen Smyth.
