Passing Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 2 August 1895

Passing Notes. [By Tempp Touching the recent fracas in Victoria square, a correspondent supplies me with the following, under the heading of " Law anorder":—Will you allow me to draw your attention to a "strike," or rather a series of " strikes" which has lately taken place. The " strikes" to which I refer took place in Victoria-square on Monday morning. In the interview with the instigator of the "strike," the Premier "gave ear" to at least one weighty argument, which, how ever, he succeeded in rebutting with argu ments still more weighty and more forcibly delivered. Indeed, so forcible were the Premier's arguments, that the originator of the "strike" at length endeavored to " shift his ground," but the Premier's " Early-Closing Movement" stayed his wanderings. At this stage the Sheriff wished to introduce " compulsory concilia tion," but for once the Premier objected to the enactment of the measure. So strong was his objection, in fact, that it took three able-bodied men to convin...

Adelaide Democratic Clj?&—A demon stration was held on l^Oiiday evening 011 the occasion of opening Kae new premises of the Adtlaide Democratic Club, the spacious hall being crowded. Among those present were the Mayor of Adelaide, neatly all the Labor members of Parliament, aud about 200 ladies. The new home of the Club is in Pitt-street, off Franklin-street, and near the General Post-Offiee.

For the convenience of mem bers and strangers the Club will be open all day, and the committee give the free perusal of English, American, and colonial news papers, likewise writing materials, while temperance refreshments can be had at cost prices.

NURSES—SWEATING! TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 9 August 1895

NURSES—SWEATING TO THE EDITOR. Sir—There is no nobler calling than tliat of a nurse; but, alas, the reward attached to tie cxereise of this self-sacriticing pro fession is a very poor oue. Let us see what the existence of a nurse in Adelaide con sists of -.—There are two classes of nurses — the Adelaide Hospital nurse aud the nurse in private hospitals. They begin in each case as probationers with a pay of 5s. per i week; second and third year, I believe, < 7s. titl. per week. After generally four, sometimes only three years, the best of them become " charge nurses." They earn ■ 17s. 6d. per week in the Adelaide Hospital, and only 12s. 6d. or 15s. in private hospitals. Their working hours are simply cruel, and average at least lOi hours a day every day in the year, every Sunday and every holiday included. They work during fourteen hours per day when on duty, and their off-time is so little that they average 10§ hours every blessed day in the year! If this is not slavery, ...

WOMEN AS LEGISLATORS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 9 August 1895

WOMEN AS LEGISLATORS. TO THE EDITOR. feir—in your able leader ot tne zbtti mt. you remark—"It looks as if the truest chivalry is born unto the world once more among the lowly." I wish it rapid growth, but must recognise the fact that there is a strong antipathy on the parts of many of the workers against women, in politics or women as legislators; the one word as excuse would be pseudo -clepsis, a false vision, from the fact that by education they have been misled, for both at school aud church we are told in the beginning Eve was only au after consideration, and in the ten commandments woman is in the same category as the ox and other domestic animals. Then they will ask you, " What do women know of politics?" Did a boy know how to swim before he entered the water, or did our Labor members under stand tlie economic questions as well before they entered into political life aud settled down as students 1 I say no, and when you read such lectures as those delivered by the Hon. D. M. C...

People's Column. THE PUBLIC SERVICE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 9 August 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 PUBLIC SERVICE. TO THE EDITOR. •sir—±t wouia oe a great blessing to tne whole of tlie public service if there were more men of Mr. Archibald's type in Parlia ment. I can fully endorse that eentleman's statement when he said there were about one-fifth in the public service mere buffers. He could have said one-fourth, and then he would not be wide of the mark. This matter of old age retrenchment is similar to the unemployed question—it will have to be met sooner or later—so it will be judicious of the Government to take this retrenchment business up with as much expedition as pos sible, so that the service will be in a thorough state of harmony instead of being one seething mass of discontent as at present. | It is most unfair to the juni...

Poetry. BACK TO THE LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 9 August 1895

Poetry. BACK TO THE LAND. "The earth is the Lord's and the fulness j thereof," So saith the Book iu a verse of the Psalms; But the lords (?) of "old England," for reasons of pelf; This truism squelched, without trouble some qualms ; Said they in full meeting in time long gone by, " The earth is the lords', not the Lord God's on high!" The land they divided by might not by right; Then called in the lawyers their claims to secure, They established a Church, God's purpose to blight, To sanctify robbery and humbug the poor. But times are now altered, and people pro claim, "The earth is the Lord's, not of Tom noddy' fame J" Mark the apostrophe! observe how 'tis altered, And mark the blasphemers who God's word profane; Their chamber is gilded, with blood 'tis bespattered, Arise in your manhood and blot out the stain; Proclaim to the masses both by voice and by pen, " The earth He hath given to the children of men!" Up, men from the people! "in God's image made" Not less than the lords, by...

Items for Women. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 9 August 1895

Items for Women. The evidence of the Dean case is remark able in one respect. The names of women who lead immoral lives are freely use ', and even the'r conversation reported without comment. But when a cabd river when giving evidence was about to mention the name of a man who visited the house under discussion, the stern command, " No names, please," came from the President. Is it not a fact that every "fallen1' woman must imply a "fallen" man? Why not the same law for both ?—Women's Voice. Hetty- Green, supposed to be the richest woman in the world, owns twelve millions worth of railway, telegraph, and other stocks, and in fifteen years more, if she has luck, she will turn her twelve millions into twenty-four millions. The virtue of this woman is that she is thrifty. She lives on £2 a week all the year round, and works hard in a room at the rear of a bank, for which she pays no rent, transacting the enormous business that fa'ls to her. Our colonial fat inen insist that one vote be...

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE: AUGUST 9, 1895. THE FRANCHISE EXTENSION BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 9 August 1895

The Weekly Herald, ADELAIDE : AUGUST 9, 1895. THE FRANCHISE EXTENSION BILL. The Bill now before the Legislative Council, having for its object the altera tion of the qualification of electors for that Chamber, is one of the measures which common fairness demands, and we therefore hope that it will become law during the present session. If passed it will do more than any measure that has preceded it to allay the popular feeling against the constitution of the Council, and will make that body more realty representative of the people of South Australia than it can possibly be under the present circumstances. Under the existing system the owner of a freehold of the clear value of £50 is entitled to registration as an elector, and the holder of a lease of the annual value of £20, or of a house of the annual value of £25, has the same privilege. Tiie man who holds a Government lease of less than £20 annual value is, therefore, excluded, although he may have improved his holding to any ext...
