Early Closing Legislation. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 July 1895

Early Closing Legislation. The Barrier 3U,ner makes the follow ing sensible observations on the early closing question:—■" It is a cheering sign to those who have been constantly com bating the doctrines of the individualistic and laissez faire schools to find two Governments, differing so radically in their political tenets as those of Sonth Australia and Queensland, bringing forward early closing Bills. It is, at any rate, an indication that the spirit of humanitariaaism is gradually prevailing over that of commercialism. In both colonies it is proposed to apply the principle of local option, which seems to be a good one in such a case. In Victoria, when the first act of this kind was passed by Mr. Deakin, the Conser vatives contemptuously termed it "'grand motherly legislation"—a phrase which might be applied to every effort on the part of the Legislature to look after the people and their wants. It is true that the measure was largely a failure in Victoria, but this was chiefly ...

A thief is a great financier who fails. - Was rent a property more saered than any other ? To him the property in labor was a more sacred property than any right to the soil could be.—John Bright.

Men in the Mackay district are work ing for farmers cutting engine wood for sugar mills at the low sum of 10s. per week and tucker. How is it possible to keep a family on such a screw?—Eagle.

Passing Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 July 1895

Passing Notes. [By Tempus.] The Rev. J. Robertson, M.A., discoursed on Sunday evening on the subject of woman's place and power in the community. In the course of his remarks he ventured— apparently with some degree of hesitation— into the realm of politics, but carefully guarded his utterances by the assurance that party politics should not be touched. With the exception of one point the sermon was of a very negative character through out. That point was that the franchise v/as not a privilege which woman should use or not as she chose, but an absolute duty which she was bound to discharge. * * # * With this exception the whole discourse from an educational standpoint was disap pointing. The preacher appeared to be under the impression that the franchise was a thing that was to be feared rather than cherished, and that it would be necessary for women to be extremely careful lest they lost by their newly acquired privilege some other privileges of which they were pre viously possess...

Universal Depression : rT ITS CAUSE AND CURE. (A. Lecture delivered bef ?rc the Australian Natives1 Societ3', by the Hon. i>. M Charleston. M.L.C.). (Continued.) This new feature in the industrial evolu tion of society marked the second step towards civilization and justified the adop tion of exploitage. But when the produc tiveness of labor reaches the point of sufficiency to meet all the demands, of man's animal nature and the requisites "for high, cult are exploitage of man by man is no longer necessary to civilization, but becomes a positive obstruction to further progress by preventing men from fully utilising their energies and the industrial knowledge they have acquired. The truth and force of this assertion is most apparent, when we con sider that under the domination -- of ex ploitage the masses cannot obtaiu from the controllers of production more of what is produced than the competition for laborers among the employers, "or hirers of labor, compel them to give, which. ...

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE: JULY 26, 1895. WOMEN AND POLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 July 1895

The Weekly Herald. ; . ADELAIDE : JULY 26, 1895. WOMEN AND POLITICS. Thebe is 110 doubt about the intense earnestness of the Tory Party- in tlieir efforts to secure the support of the newly enfrariehised women voters at the next general election. For this purpose they have admitted women, to membership of what is termed the National Defence League, and to the younger branch of that association known as the Young Patriotic League, and they are. now energetically working to increase ; the membership of these somewhat deerepid bodies by enlisting women into their ranks. Some of their methods do not appear to be quite honorable or above board; at least, this maj be said of the methods of some of their members, although possibly tie officials of the bodies referred to would not admit their responsibility in regard to these methods. The Sydney Bulletin^ wTiicIi lias a Habit of speaking very much to the point, refers to the matter as follows :—" The wives of the Adelaide plutocracy have al...

Current Topics. Early Closing Concert.—The concert at the Town Hall on.'Saturday evening, in aid of the early closing movement, was fairly well attended, despite the very inclement weather. The front seats were, however, but poorly patronised. The programme was a very interesting one, and included con certed numbers by the Adelaide Glee Club, solos by Miss Florence Fowler, whose vocalisation was extremely pleasing, and by Miss Laura Carigg, who was equally suc cessful, besides other, vocal numbers, all of which were well rendered.

"The Man Out of Employment." [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 July 1895

" The Man Out of Employ ment." Ia the course of a recent address at Los Angeles, California, Clarence A. Miller, a well-grounded Single Taxer, and one of tlie leading lawyers of Southern California, spake in this eloquent way of the man out of employ ment :—" The most significant figure of our times is the man out of employment. Yesterday he was regarded, if regarded at all, with alternating pity and con tempt. To-day he is regarded with concern. To-morrow he may be regarded with terror. On your way home to-night some of you will see coming out of the. shadow of a building or an alley, a man —abject, unkempt. He will- not venture to stop you.—he will walk along with you, and in a subdued voice and cringing air ask you for the price of a night's cheap lodging or a cheap supper. Who is he ? The man out of employment. You have i seen him before. He has called at j your offi<se—he has been at your kitchen door; you have seen him in crowds I before the bulletins of employment ...

THE NORTHERN TERRITORY. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 July 1895

THE NORTHERN TERRITORY. The report of tlie Northern Territory Commission, which was laid before Parliament on Tuesday, is not likely to lead to; any very satisfactory solution of the many difficulties surrounding the successful development of that distant, portion of the province. So far as the agricultural interest of the Territory is concerned, the chief obstacle appears to be the curse of land monopoly. The very first cause of the present unsatis factory condition of things :i§ stated in" the report as followsMost of the township blocks and agricultural lands within forty miles of Palmerston were 1 bought from the Government in the first instance by speculators, who demanded excessive rents or prohibitive prices' from those who were willing to utilise them." This is the old, old story which seems to be at the very root of the - social stagna tion experienced in the Territory as else where. If the land within this forty mile radius had been let by the Govern ment of the day at a m...

WOMEN AS LEGISLATORS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 26 July 1895

WOMEN AS LEGISLATORS. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—Now that females have been nomi nated as candidates for Parliament, you hear a number of different opinions as to the advisability of extending that privilege to them. If Ave consider the conditions of women and their claim to equal rights and privileges we should adopt the method of Socrates of disregarding all positive know ledge and throw ourselves on the resources of a shrewd observation of human nature. We at the same time should not neglect to inform ourselves of the existing systems of philosophy as they are understood and taught, and should not condemn an idea until we have given it a fair consideration. We shall find that women are best treated where the highest moral feelings are most cultivated, aud among barbarous nations they are given very little consideration. Take China, for instance, where they have very little choice of their own. If women wish to vindicate their natural rights and demand absolute freedom, they must free the...

Dave Hargrave's Mission [By Harry J. White.] CHAPTER XIX. (continued). " Well, mate, how is it, any news ?" Dave said, accosting Iiim. "Yes, I hare news, partner, but I hope to goodness it will be the last time you go away like this, for I reckon what ever your business is, it is causing a little anxiety; why, it would seem as though all your relations belonged to the constabulary, and they had suddenly, one and all, become mindful of your valuable health," his partner replied. "Why, what do you mean," asked Dare anxiously. *'I mean just this," replied the other, "if.you had committed a murder they could -not hare made more enquiries; why, I verily believe the whole of the police camp has been down here after jou, and the wonder is they haven't seen you coming in: I suppose they are too busy at the races; that villianous young cub you had with you before I bought in has been at their heels all the time; whatever the mischief is, he's at the bottom of it you may depend."

SHOULD CAPITAL PUNISHMENT BE ABOLISHED? TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 2 August 1895

SHOULD CAPITAL PUNISHMENT BE ABOLISHED? TO THE EDITOR. Sir—In capital punishment the State sets a bad example to the whole community. It sets the example of retaliation. It matters not whether the avowed object is retaliation or not; if the State judicially murders a criminal, the retaliation is an accomplished fact. If we are to have practical Christianity, the State should certainly set the example in all matters. In this matter the State should endeavour to stamp the idea of re taliation out of the minds of the community, and not encourage and perpetuate vindica tive feeling by setting the example of capi tal punishment. It has been said that " revenge is sweet." This is a big brother of many another lioary lie. The fact is that revenge is useless, senseless, and bitter. " Forgiveness is the only sweet revenge." This by the way, but everybody knows that revenge breeds crime, and I ask you, Sir, whether the example of vengeance is not also likely to breed the same offspring. A man...
