THE HON. J. H. HOWE AND STATE SOCIALISM. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 2 August 1895

THE HON. J. H. HOWE AND STATE SOCIALISM. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—On the 26th iiist. the Premier and the Commissioner of Crown Lands visited Port Pirie by invitation from the Workers1 Democratic Federation, and addressed a bumper house on "Some Current Political Topics" and " Village Settlements" re spectively. Needless to say the lion, gen tlemen did infinite credit to their subjects and themselves, and received a well-deserved and more than hearty reception. They were accompanied by the Hons. Russell, Catt, and Howe, and our good friend, Mr. Smeaton. After the addresses in the Town Hall, a social was held in the International Hall, at which various toasts were honored, and some lively and interesting speeches were made. The toast of " The Parlia ment," to which Messrs. Russell, Catt, and Howe responded, is the one of which I wish particularly to write. Mr. Howe, in re sponding, said he was not a state socialist, and prayed to God he nevei* would be, be cause state socialism meant "killi...

THE BRITISH WORKING MEN. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 2 August 1895

THE BRITISH WORKING MEN. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—How great is the truism that the en vironments of a people form the characters of that people is exemplified by the results of the two important elections that have simultaneously taken place in England and New South Wales. An average English ■ workmen is a firm believer in " what is— j is right; let workmen be workmen, and lords be lords," and he will philosophically say " if I have no work, it is because there is no work for me." He is proud of those institu tions he has been taught to consider all that is excellent, and cannot realize that it is the action of those very institutions that reduces him to beggary. With a mind perverted with traditons, superstitions, and the other "itions'; that save hiui the trouble of calling on the dormant powers of his intellect by the obligation to think for himself, he will with the dogged obstinacy of his prototype, the bulldog, but with half his intelligence, wrap himself up in his dire stupidity an...

FRIENDS OF IRELAND. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 2 August 1895

FRIENDS OF IRELAND. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—I have read the Weekly Herald from its commencement, and I have frequently noticed letters therein signed "C. Butcher." Under the heading of " Socialists and Soldiers," lie wrote as follows in last weeks issue : " That the so-called Phoenix Park assassins had at least a country's wrongs to redress." Now, I don't know what country Mr. C. Butcher hails from, but if he is an Irishman, then he is a disgrace to the mother that reared him, and the father that gave him a name. He is no Socialist—if his opinions are Socialistic, then (Sod help humanity—or he would not write of " the semi-barbarous civilization in which we live" and at the same moment find ex cuse for the perpetrators of the most cowardly murder that ever disgraced the cause of Irish freedom. Let me tell Mr. C. B. that the murder of Burke and Cavendish did great and lasting harm to the cause of liberty, and none knew and regretted it more than the Irish National Party. As an Irish man, ...

THE SONG OF THE LANDLESS. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 2 August 1895

THE SONG OF THE LANDLESS. When Adam inherited Eden we know He worked every day for liis dinner; He delved in the garden and handled the hoe, An honest and humble bread-winner ; And the sweat on his brow as he turned the soil Was the sweat, my friends, of his honest toil. fie had nothing to do but to work and live, In the ranks of earth's toilers enlisting; No rent to pay aud no alms to give To such gents as we pay for existing ; And the sweat on his brow as he turned the soil Was the sweat we are told, of his honest toil. And we've tried to find out, but hitherto failed, When men buy the earth, how they hold it; For Adam must either have left it entailed, Or God must have privately sold it; For the earth is the Lord's, and the men who toil Are surely the men who inherit the soil. So what we desire is a sight of that will, That title-deed—God must have signed it; We'll always believe it's a swindle until Each landlord is able to find it; For the earth is the Lord's, and the men who t...

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE: AUGUST 2, 1895. LAW AND JUSTICE. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 2 August 1895

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE : AUGUST 2, 1895. LAW AND JUSTICE. The celebrated Reformatory case, which was concluded in the Supreme Court on Thursday, shows with remarkable clear ness how far removed a strictly legal decision may be from a strictly just one. It is well, perhaps, in this lawyer-ridden community, that such a case should sometimes occur, in order to arouse popular thought in the direction of these reforms which ages of red-tape and technicality have rendered so urgently necessary. The facts of the case are so well known that we need not refer to them at length. A girl who had been sent to the [Reformatory was subsequently boarded out, and her conduct being un endurable, she was sent back to the Reformatory. In receiving her again into the institution, Mrs. Holden, who bears the character of being a most humane and exemplary woman, com mitted her initial mistake. She should have absolutely refused to have taken the girl back without the necessary formality of an order, e...

Current Topics. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 2 August 1895

Current Topics. Homes Rent Free.—The Stair-Bowkett Societies, as introduced into South Australia some eighteen months ago by Mr. T. S. Carey, are doing a splendid work for the wage-earners and oilier thrifty persons. The number of these Societies in the colony is 11, comprising a total membership of 3,1S1, holding an aggregate of 6,5S1 shares. Up to June 30 the sum of £17,400 had been appropriated amongst 86 members. The present gross weekly income approaches £370. These figures show that most grati fying progress has been made during the past half-year, the figures at December 31 last being as follows Societies, 11; mem bers, 2,645; shares, 5,658; appropriations, 30 ; amount appropriated, £7,500 ; weekly income, £300. It will be seen that already as many as 86 families have been put in the happy way of dismissing the rent man and the interest collector, and inquiries made of these families show that they like the change immensely. {We have not made any inquiries of " the other fell...

Poetry. TWO PICTURES. THE PLUTOCRAT'S SOLUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 2 August 1895

Poetry. TWO PICTURES. The Plutocrat's Solution. The masses struggle to nprise — Keep them down ! Jveep them down ! Fear not their frantic threats and cries, But firmly keep them down. Their words are naught bat frothing yeast, They still stand, lauib like to be fleeced, And if onr army is increased We'll safely keep them down. These lawless mobs of unemployed— Shoot them down 1 Shoot them down J If anarchy we would avoid, Hire men to shoot them down. The lazy ingrates would not touch The wages "scabs" are glad to clutch — Outside the pale of law are such, To shoot the vermin down. Wages are surely much to high— Cut them down! Cut them down ! Think " what a dollar now can buy !" Don't fail to cut them down. The scum from Europe's southern shore Is floating to our very door— Just what they'll work for, and 110 more, We'll pay—so cut them down. The Labor Unions rise in power— Crush them down ! Crush them down ! They're growing stronger every hour— Make haste to crush them down ! Buy up...

A Disappointment. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 2 August 1895

A Disappointment, [Bt J. l., in "The Wobkee."] As I lay dozing under the sliade of some leafy gumtrees I was aroused by some one calling out, "Hello, old fellow, you seem to be tating it easf." On looking up to see wlio so rudely disturbed my siesta. I recognised Bob Sanders. He was riding, and led an old grey, on "whose back "was piled a huge pack. Bob was noted for having the largest swag of any man on the plains, for if there was one thing he dreaded more than another it was cold weather, and especially sleeping cold at night. That accounted for the large swag, which re sembled a hawker's pact more than an ordinary bushman's outfit. " Oh, yes," I replied in answer to Bob's query, " a fellow may as well take his ease when he gets the chance. It seems as if you mean business. Surely you are not going to start on the wallaby on Sunday?" "No," he replied, "I am not going on tramp this time. I got a job of old Wurzel, the cocky." " I didn't think Wurzel was putting on extra hands." "W...

Gleanings. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 2 August 1895

Gleanings. The best religion is to do good! The best happiness is to do good! The best work is to do good! If you keep to the right the world will come to you. The right is bound to win. Educate, organize, wait. Failure after long perseverance is much grander than never to have a striv ing good enough to be called a failure.— George Eliot. Ait this mammon gospel of supply and demand competition, lasses faire, and devil take the hindmost begins to be one of the shabbiest gospels ever preached.— John jELwslein. The one great cause underlying indus trial antagonism, the world over, can be traced to the granting, at the hand of governments, of special privileges to capital, and the restriction or absolute denial of those natural rights belonging to labor. It seems to me that every child of nature is entitled to his share of the land, and that he should not be compelled to beg the privilege of working the soil, of a babe that happened to be born before him.—Ingersoll. If labor is to be l...
