THE GOVERNOR'S SALARY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 July 1895

THE GOVERNOR'S SALARY. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—JLhe Premier s minute re Governor s salary has terribly offended Samuel Toni kiiison, but I dou't know why. I can't see anything more than a plain case plainly stated. We are only a handful of people, and why should we have a Governor imposed upon us at a high salary, even although he may have no knowledge of the colony 1 And if we do have such a one, I consider he should do as instructed by our Government. Our money pay his wages, and I can't see why he should complain as to the wording of any telegram sent away by our Premier. It would be a gross injustice if we were to accept whom the Crown chose, and pay him what the Crown considered enough, and allow liim to act as he pleased. If the Grown desires to monopolise his services, or prejudice his judgment, why are we taxed to pay him ? As for any of the home officials tossiug to the winds any com munication which came from the Premier of this colony, I should hope they would not be so rash, ...

THE APPOINTMENT OF JUSTICES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 July 1895

THE APPOINTMENT OF JUSTICES. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—As the editor of a democratic paper, perhaps you could tell me if democracy means the rule of the people. I am in doubt if it does. If so, all public officers should be elective. Our members of Parliament are, our District Councils are, our Justices of the Peace are not, our Boards of Advice only by the parents ; our Land Boards, aud the two members who are supposed to represent the farmers or people are appointed by the Go vernment. Our Justices of the Peace are appointed by the Attorney-General. This autocrat says in the Government Gazette he will not allow the people in the country to elect them themselves. After these men are appointed, mostly by influence they remain for life (one held the position for 50 years, I have heard). The injustice of this sort of thing is this :—In country districts the poor have 110 chance, as there are no reporters to keep the public papers posted up. If justice was not given in Adelaide some one would...

LABOR MEMBERS IN THE COUNTRY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 July 1895

T.AROT?, MTCVTRTCUR TTsT THE COTTNTRV. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—I am sure that every reformei', democrat, socialist, or any other'' ist" who has the welfare of the colony and humanity at heart, must feel deeply thankful to the Hon. G. McGregor, M.L.C,, and Mr, Hourigan, M.P., for the large amount of work they are doing in travelling and addressing meetings in the different parts of our colony, and the pleasure it must be to every demo crat at the wonderful success of these oft termed "faddists." There is not the slightest doubt they are removing a large quantity of dust (previously thrown) from the electors' eyes, and placing before them the true state of affairs, which, no doubt, rather surprises some of their hearers. Just a few words to your readers who have had the pleasure of hearing these gentle men, and can go with them (and I personally know many). Remember " unity is strength." Erect a living monument to their honour in your town by organising a society of workers and producers o...

MR. HASLAM IN REPLY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 July 1895

MR. HASLAM IN REPLY. TO THE 1SDITOK. Sir—In your last tw o issues you have done me the honor of devoting considerable space to discussiiig my public utterances, as alsD to the Hon. Mr. Kirkpatrick's criticism of those utterances, and to myself personally. With these facts I do not complain, for I recognise that public men, as also their sayings, have a right to be criticised. I do, however, claim from you, as from other public writers and speakers, that fairness which in these instances I consider have been sadly wanting. First of all, in your sub-leader of 5th inst. you say, referring to me, " He proceeds to prove his elegant assertion by a gross misrepresentation of what we said." You are, however, dis creetly silent as to where the gross misrepre sentation came in. As a matter of fact, in the instance you referred to, I read from the article in question in your own paper, and at the request of the reporters of "Hansard" passed them the article itself with the words underlined. Yo...

Dare was on his return journey to the diggings. There had been a warm part ing between the young outlaw and him self, and his mind was filled with thoughts of the future. After silently considering all the possibilities in con nection with the proposed escapade, his thoughts naturally ran in the direction of self. Surely the most romantic young lady would be satisfied with his measure of incident and adventure, at any rate his modest young affianced should be, for as such he certainly looked on Eva Berthoun now, and he smiled a self satisfied smile. Dave was decidedly growing vain. Fortune had showered her richest favors on him, and he told himself his part of their contract had been carried out; would...

Dave Hargrave's Mission. CHAPTER XVIII. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 July 1895

Dave Hargrave's Mission. [By Harry J. White.] CHAPTER XVIII. " There's no doubt about that being Hankey's gang, they are a lawless set; but thank goodness if they take to the river and leave my traeks alone. If they made over this way it would be a case with me. I met two of them once, and they had the cheek to ask me to join them. I feLt a mind to slioot them and hand them over to the Government, for two months before they had shot two policemen in cold blood. They were both armed, and although two to one, I believe I could have captured them had I shot one straight away with my revolver. But as it is, I should not wonder if the troopers were not scouring the country about the hills," said Ope. " JSTo, I believe it is as you said, they have taken the other direction," replied Dave. " Well, I suppose I should have to leave if they did come here." "Where would you go to?" asked Dave. " Oil, bless you, I could easily take a trip across to the river myself. Why, my dear boy, that is no...

THE CHURCH AND THE PEOPLE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 July 1895

THE CHURCH AND THE PEOPLE. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—Can it be wondered at that so many, especially our poor, neglect attending a place of worship while the clergy are so apathetic as to their temporal welfare ? To my mind they would be doing a greater Christian work if tliey would set about elevating the masses socially first, instead of preaching so much empty theory, or at the same time keeping their eye well on the collection plate, which appears to be the god of the Church in these days. It seems most absurd to pay clergymen high salaries to tell us that which we can all read out of ' a sixpenny Bible. I would ask, " Did Christ receive a high remuneration for preaching to the people ?" No, he mingled with the poor aud did all his preaching without fee or reward, and died a martyr. I question if there would be found many martyrs in the Church to-day if the necessity arose. It would be well if our clergy were to follow more in his footsteps; they would soon find their congregations incr...

THE MAN OUT OF EMPLOYMENT. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 July 1895

THE MAN OUT OF EMPLOYMENT. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—I shall be for ever indebted to you, as will all the " right-thinking portion" of the community, if you will find room in your columns for the eloquent pleading by, mark you, a leading lawyer of Southern California. I commend to Sir John Downer and all his Conservative, obstructive clique, and to the stupid party of stagnation with which he identifies himself, the stirring appeal for " the man out of employment." I also hope the man out of employment will get his wits together and consider well why he is out of employment, and how only he can get into employment. How would it bs, I wonder, if men were allowed to employ themselves ? How would it be if men were not allowed to monopolise God's earth, and charge their fellows for the right of access to the storehouse 1 Well, it strikes me there would mighty soon be a change, and that there would be jobs running after men instead of men after jobs. Yes, and the change is coming, despite the d...

SOCIALISTS AND SOLDIERS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 July 1895

SOCIALISTS AND SOLDIERS. TO THE EDITOR. 1 Sir—The hired assassins of the English speaking race call for a word of condemna tion from all Socialists, inasmuch as that they of their own free will sell their ser vices to the murderous exigences of warfare, thus entailing entering into a struggle of death with fellow men with whom they have no grievance, in a cause where they have no sympathy or any voice, the true object of which they too often know nothing about, and for which they can reap no material advantage either for themselves, their off spring, or their class. It shows even in the " enlightened" days a phenomenon illustra tive of the degrading influences of the semi barbarous civilization in which.we live ; it would be more reasonable if • those large owners of wealth, whether in land, houses, factories, or banks, joined together to de fend their holdings by force, for they could claim consistency, as they were upholding by force those rights that were obtained by force; but t...

THE HON. W. HAS LAM AND WHITE SHIRTS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 July 1895

THE HON. W. HAS LAM AND WHITE SHIRTS.. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—Mr. Haslam, iu the Herald of July 19, writes:—"I obtained the prices they paid for making white shirts, and they assured me that they paid 30s. and 36s. per dozen, and 6s. per dozen extra for dressing and ironing." I take it that 30s. is the minimum amount paid, and work out the following little problem :—The reward to labor for producing this article of apparel is 2s. 6d., calendaring 6d. extra=3s.; the cost of material and merchant's profit, say 2s. Hence the bottom cost at which white shirts can be produced, based ou Mr. Haslam's excellent authorities, can be nothing under 5s. each. How comes it, then, that men's white shirts may be purchased from the merchant and manufacturer at about 3s. each? Some one has blundered. Has not Mr. Haslam sold at a profit men's white shirts at much less than he would have your readers believe is their prime cost ? He is an acknowledged expert in the values of softgoods, and 1 thiuk is too a...

People's Column. THE STATE ADVANCES BILL. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 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.] THE STATE ADVANCES BILL. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—The Treasurer is to be commended for his plain exposition of the calutnnics of the opponents of the State Advances Bill, who fear that a limit is about to be put upon the heartless extortion of. the banking fraternity. Colonial banking history of late years has clearly shown that these institu tions have not been conducted by men with more than the average of honesty or intelli gence, and their records show nothing specially deserving the respect of the com munity. Many persons suffered by the reconstruction business, and I suppose this was the outcome of the' "sound financial business lines" we hear so much about. And yet we are told their operations ought not to be interfered with; and the Sta...

The Power of the Mass. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 July 1895

The Power of the Mass. Whatever represents most perfectly the power of organization, tlie power of the mass, the power of feeling that each stands for ali, mast impress the mob upon the sidewalk as an ultimate dictator. Each soldier feels himself great because he belongs to that which is greatness incarnate, and can bear down all opposition. But as I gazed upon this martial scene my thoughts were of another army that, from curbstone to curbstone, marches along the streets of our great cities in these days to the music of a new hope. They are the captains of industry, the master work men, the chiefs of the brotherhood, the great disciplined, unified, ballot-batal lioned army of wage-workers, who are sure to wiu because they are not now cach one out with his shooting-iron to seek his own sweet will, and fire at random, but are marshalled by millions into a militia whose guns are ballots, whose bullets are ideas. A generation will not pass until the ungloved army of whom " G-od said, s...

A MILLION MILES FROM HEAVEN. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 July 1895

A MILLION MILES FROM HEAVEN. I do not like to hear him pray On bended knee about an hour, For grace to spend aright the day, Who knows his neighbour has no flour. I'd rather see him go to mill And buy his luckless brother bread, And see his children eat their fill And laugh beneath their humble shed. I do not like to hear him pray, " Let blessings on the widow be," Who never seeks her home to say, "If want o'ertake you, come to me." I do not like such soulless prayers ; If wrong, I hope to be forgiven, No angel wing them upward bears ; They're lost a million miles from heaven.

Poetry. LABOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 July 1895

Poetry. LABOR. No idle man lias any right Of life's good things to be possessed, For all things that make being bright, Labor has drawn from nature's breast. We pay our passage o'er life's seas, By working hard and honestly ; And men by work unjustified Deserve to sink beneath the tide. The clothes you wear, the bread you eat, Some one, be sure, has toiled to make, That idlers1 hearts may find life sweet, Some hearts of workers have to break. And every comfort, every meal, Yon either earn or else you steal; Decide when next at food you sit, Whether you've earned or stolen it. Work is the only noble thing, And they who work in mine or mill, The' souls pull round, not compassing, Are for the work's sake noble still. The men who sow and reap, the men Who toil with brain and brush ana pen, Or plough the wet and fruitful soil, These are the brotherhood of toil. The fool who sees in toil disgrace, Or thinks.the work-worn hand a shame. He is an outrage to the race, We trample on his very n...

All true trophies of the ages Are from mother-love impearled, For the hand that rocks the cradle, Is the hand that rocks the world. Blessings on the hand of woman !
