The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE: JULY 12, 1895. A LESSON IN DEMOCRATIC GOVERNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 July 1895

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE : JULY 12, 1895 A LESSON IK DEMOCRATIC GOVERNMENT. The address of the Hon. J. Langdon Parsons at the Democratic Club on Sunday evening "was a masterpiece of polished rhetoric and skilful argument. The admirable manner of the speaker won for him from the outset the goodwill of an audience naturally disposed to watch with more than ordinary care the utterances of a gentleman whose sym pathies were supposed to be in a direction opposed, at least to some extent, to the teaching and the belief of those to whom his remarks were addressed. No one, however, could possiblj find fault either with the historical facts dealt with by [ the speaker, or the method by which he ! arrived at his conclusions, looking, of course, at the matter from his point of view. It was, however, these conclusions which gave rise to the spirited discussion which followed, and even Mr. Parsons must fain admit that, beautifully con structed as his arguments were, when analysed they were sc...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 July 1895

TO CORRESPONDENTS. We shall be glad to receive from secre taries of democratic and Liberal organisa tions ill all parts of tlie colony brief reports of progress, either for our own information or for publication, as we may think desir able. AU communications, whether in the form of reports or of letters for our open columns, should be brief and pointed, and must be verified by the name and address of the writer. "John Mitchell, Jim.," writes a long letter iu reply to C. Butcher's question, '"What are the Socialists doing?" He agrees with Mr. Butcher's humane feelings aud desires, but asks, " Does it not seem time for reformers to drop the useless reference to the teachings of Christ, which so mauy harp upon, but which none of them even attempt to carry ou<", aud to teach the people that if they want to improve their position they must do it themselves ?

A CONTRAST. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 July 1895

A CONTRAST. The poor man, working long and late, Bemoans Ms fate; The w ealthy roll along in state, Honoured and great. The " humble" poor may slave and toil, (When work they've got) ; The rich man smiles, puts out his hands, And grabs the lot. The poor man's thin amd lean, and rags Make up his dress ; He pieks what'er is thrown to him, With thankfulness. But soon liis eyes he'll open wide, And then we'll see The death-blow dealt to pomp and pride— And misery ! —Justice.

Current Topics. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 July 1895

Current Topics. The Wheat Sack.—The agitation in favour of a reduction in the size of the ordinary wheat sack is being vigorously prosecuted in the north, and it may reason ably be hoped that it will be successful. There is no reason beyond that of slavish custom for the retention of the present size of sack, which has had the effect of breaking down the physical constitution of most of the lumpers who have been employed in stacking wheat at the railway stations during the past twenty years. We have received a copy of a paper read recently before the On oroo Branch of the Agricul tural Bureau on this subject, which places the matter very clearly, showing that, apart from tbe physical injury to the ineD, the grower is the principle loser by the present arrangement. It is proposed to bring the subject under the notice of the Corn Asso ciation, and the co-operation of farmers is asked for this purpose. Referring to this matter, the following letter has been re ceived by Mr. W. O. Archi...

Poetry. BATTLE HYMN OF THE WRONGED. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 July 1895

Poetry. BATTLE HYMN OF THE WRONGED. Br Hamlin Garland. We have seen the reaper toiling in the heat of summer sun, We have seen his children needy when the harvesting was done. We have seen a mighty army dying helpless one by one, While their flag went marching ou. 0 the army of the wretched, how they swarm the city street; We have seen them in the midnight where the Goths and Vandals meet. We had shuddered in the darkness at the noise of their feet — But their cause goes marching on. Our slavers' marts are empty, human fiesk no more is sold, Where the dealer's fatal hammer wakes the clink of leaping gold, But the slavers of the present more relent less powers hold, Though the world goes marching on. But no longer shall the children bend above the whizzing wheel; We will free the weary women from their bondage under steel; In the mines and in the forest worn and hopeless man shall feel His cause is marching on. Then lift your eyes, ye toilers, in the desert hot and drear, Catch the c...

THE LABOR PASTY AND THE PRODUCER. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 July 1895

THE LABOR PASTY AND THE PRODUCER. One of the most gratifying features iu connection, with, the work of the Labor Party is the fact that their efforts to benefit the producer are becoming more generally and more cordially recognised. Farmers are finding that, despite the unjust and unmanly aspersions of the paid agents of Toryism, both in the sub sidized press of the Conservative party and on the platform, the labor members and their coadjutors are the best friends the farmer has in the House. They find tbat instead of encouraging industrial strife they are seeking to prevent it; instead of attempting to injure the farmer to the advantage af the laborer, the represen tatives of labor recognise in the farmer one of the most industrious, most useful, and worst jpaid laborers in the colony. They therefore have done, and still con | tinue to do, all that is possible to make the condition of the farmer better. In I no part of the colony, and in no single instance where assistance could be...

GAWLER PLAINS IRRIGATION SCHEME. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 July 1895

GAWLElt PLAINS IRRIGATION SCHEME. TO THE EDlTOn. . Sir—A London telegram in the Register of July 1 states that this scheme will probably be floated 111 the autumn, presumably in London. In that case, practically all the fiuancial benefits derivable from shares would go to Loudon. Now, cannot we do better than that? Money is superabundant here —in banks, loan Companies, and private hands. Witness the recent floating of our Government loan in six minute3 ! Heaps of money is lying idle in our very midst, and, unfortunately, heaps of labour too. The carrying out of this great scheme would absorb a tremendous lot of labour, and it would profitably utilise a large amount of the capital now rusting or rotting away. The scheme in itself is a really good one, as proved by severe examinations, criticisms, and reports. It has received official sanction from the Government, and apparently will bear the closest scrutiny as to the feasibility, utility, and profitableness to both investors and set...

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.] WHAT ARE SOCIALISTS DOING ? TO THE EDITOR. Sir—Has it ever come under the imme diate uotice of your readers how the arro gance of capital is 011 a par with its impor tance : how the sunineness of the toiler has allowed the domination of that which he creates to become his master? Iii these days of rapid evolution of thought such questions are bonnd to force themselves on the attention of the thinker, and through them to the men of action. It has often times and again occurred to the writer that it is not thinkers—they are essential as propounders of thought and searchers of evils to their i-oots—but actors, men of singleness of purpose, of indomitable perse verance ; men like Bonaparte, with minds capable of grasping, and courage capable o...

Poetry. EARTH WORMS. [WRITTEN FOR REYNOLDS'S NEWSPAPER.] [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 July 1895

Poetry. EARTH WORMS. [Written fob Reynolds's Newspaper.] He is not as good as a king— The man who's tilling the soil, Yet he home doth the harvest bring— This bondsman of Nature's toiL He is "bumpkin, thickhead, and clod," The lowest in all the land ; He was made, like a horse, to plod, And is as a grain of sand. He may love and hate, but it's not Worthy of even a thought; He may die like a rat, or rot— This wretch that his God has wrought! He's worthless—quite worthless, of course— No need to pity or sigh ; So soon as he can, perforce, He finds that its best to die ! 0 ring the bell with a ding dong dell! Laugh and be merry again ; Justice and Truth are drowned in the well, And Labour must end in pain ! She is not as good as a queen— The slave of needle and thread ; She's of " no importance" I weeu— The woman who earns her bread. She's common and vulgar and low, And paid with a paltry wage ; She's merely a cipher, you know— A super, on life's great stage ! Her eyes may bum and lips...

Sweating in New York. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 July 1895

Sweating in New York, The Assembly Committee appointed to investigate and report on the " sweating" system in New York find the following promising condition of affairs:—1st—That there are abont 70,000 persons employed as sweaters, very few of whom are women or children. 2nd—That out of 385 cloth ing manufacturers all but fifteen have their goods made up in sweat shops. 3rd —That when the goods are made up they generally lay for some time in the rooms occupied night and day by the sweaters. A case was instanced where scarlet fever broke out in a sweat shop, and the cloth ing then in the sliop had to be removed before the fumigation was made by the Board of Health. The trades in which sweating is principally conducted are the manufacture of clothing, artificial flowers and purses—those trades which generally do not use machinery. What reduces the laborer to the condition which the name implies—a sweater—is that, instead of one capitalist being on his back, he must carry four. These a...

Gleanings. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 July 1895

Gleanings. Give your tongue more holiday than your hands or your eyes, says a Turkish proverb. Woman coal-carriers at the Lisbon docks receive Is. 3d. a day; male coal carriers 3s. 4d. The Liverpool (Eng.) Municipal Council has decided to municipalise the electric light of tlie city at a cost of £400,000. A Melbourne boot manufacturer asserts publicly that 40 per cent, of the light work of the boot trade in that city is made by sweated labor. An agricultural laborer in India is sup posed to receive 3d. a day, but in general his wages are not so large. The income of the Prince of Wales exceeds £140,000 a year, yet he probably never in his life did one day's productive work. England can always boast of having one million persons who are either paupers in workhouses or criminals in gaol. A democratic Government would pro tect all citizens equally. A plutocratic Government oppresses the many for the enrichment of the few. I have left the individualist camp with regret, just seeing its m...

Universal Depression ITS CAUSE AND CURE. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 July 1895

Universal Depression ITS CAUSE AND CURE. (A Lecture delivered before the Australian Natives' Society, by the Ho:i. I). M. Charleston, M.L.C.). When one" hears of industrial depression the thought of over-supply of wealt'i is conveyed to the mind, rather than the im pression of insufficiency for the world's requirements. This at first seems para doxical. for surely auy thinking person would say, " If there be wealth oa the one hand, and needs on the other, there should be no diminution of trade, nor want of activity in exchange, if those in need were given opportunities to p oduce and facilities for exchange." Among the many wise things King Solomon of Scripture fame said, we find the following beautiful ex pression :—" There is that scattereth and yet iucreaseth; and there is that with holdetli more than is meet, but it tendetli to poverty." These words are most sig nificant, and possess great interest to all political economists, especially at this period of development in the " Ma...

The Waste of Princes. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 July 1895

The Waste of Princes. The total sum set aside for tlie enter tainment of the Shakzada, Nasrullah Elian, eldest son of the Ameer, during his stay in England is £50,000, and of this amount £4,000 will go to pay the rent of Dorchester House, which, it was expec ted, might perhaps be occupied for six weeks on and off if the health of the oriental visitor stood out against the somewhat trying hospitalities of England. His Highness is said to have brought i over presents to the value of two lakhs of rupees (£30,000), and according to Eastern etiquette he must receive an exact equivalent. In India these exchanges of munificence are made to balance to an anna in the Governmental ledger, but in England the system does not work so well. Most of the prince's gifts are personal offerings to the Queen, members of the Royal Family, and other illustrious personages, so that they will pass out of the cognizance of the India Office. A great quantity of the Crown plate was brought up from Windsor Cas...
