People's Column. SHOULD CAPITAL PUNISHMENT BE ABOLISHED. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 16 August 1895

People's Column. [We do not hold ourselves in any way responsible for the opinions expressed in the "People's Coluinu," the object of which is to provide facilities for the free discussion, within reasonable limits, of matters of public interest.] SHOULD CAPITAL PUNISHMENT BE ABOLISHED. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—Observing the above question heading a column in your issue of the 2nd inst., and being anxious to obtain all available infor mation on the subject, I proceeded to read the correspondence above the signature " M.D.," but I confess the amount of infor mation I derived therefrom was exceedingly small, and I feel persuaded that I shall require to read or *hear a much fuller state ment of the case to enable me to arrive at a decided opinion on the subject. With some of the propositions contained in that letter I agree, with others, and with the reasoning adopted, I entirely disagree. Undoubtedly the execution of a murderer by the State is an act of retaliation ; it is life for life, or...

Universal Depression: ITS CAUSE AND CURE. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 16 August 1895

Universal Depression: ITS CAUSE AND CURE. {A Lecture delivered before the Australian Natives' Society, by tbe Hon. I). M. Charleston, M.L.C.). ( Continued.) The work is undertaken, navvies and others are set to work ; at the end of the week or month each receives for the services he has rendered in the construction of the railway by throwing up embank ments, &c., the estimated value oi his services. This is paid hiin through the agency of paper-inoney in most cases. With these notes of representative value they procure from the controllers of wealth the things they require to maintain their standard of living. In this manner the surplus stocks find consumers. Our capitalist employers, through this system of co-operative capitalism, hand over their stores of surplus wealth to the men engaged in the new enterprise. To keep up with the demands of those so employed and con suming, say the 3,000 men available for that purpose, the employers ■find it necessary to keep their machin...

THE NEW ORDER. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 16 August 1895

THE NEW ORDER. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—Nearly nineteen hundred years ago, when another civilization was developing monstrous inequalities, when the masses everywhere were being ground into hopeless slavery, there arose in a Jewish village an unlearned carpenter, who, scorning the orthodoxies and ritualisms of the time, preached to laborers and fishermen the gospel of the fatherhood of God, of the equality and brotherhood of inen, who taught his disciples to pray for the coming of the kingdom of heaveu and earth. The college professors sneered at him, the ortho dox preachers denounced him. He was reviled as a dreamer, as a disturber, as a communist, and finally organised society took the alarm and he was crucified between two thieves. But the word weut forth, aud spread by fugitives aud slaves, made its way against power and against persecution till it revolutionised the world, and out of the rottiug old civilization brought the germ of the new. Then the privileged classes rallied again, ...

OBSCURE MARTYRS. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 16 August 1895

OBSCURE MARTYRS. They have 110 place in storied page, ]So rest in marble shrine ; They are pasted and gone with a perished age— They died and made no sign, But work that shall find its wages yet. And deeds that their God did not forget, Done for their love divine— These were the mourners, and these shall be The crowns of their immortality O, seek them not where sleep the dead— Ye shall not find their trace ; No graven stone is at their head, No green grass hides their face. But sad and unseen in their silent grave— It may be the sand or the deep sea wave, Or lonely desert place ; For they needed no prayers and no mourn ing bell— They were tombed in true hearts that knew them well. They healed sick hearts till theirs were broken, And dried sad eyes till theirs lost light; We shall know at last by a certain token How they fought and fell in the night. Salt tears of sorrow unbeheld, Passionate tears unchronicled, And silent strifes for the right— Angels shall court them and earth shall...

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE: AUGUST 16, 1895. THE STATE ADVANCES BILL AND THE PUBLIC PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 16 August 1895

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE : AUGUST 16, 1895. THE STATE ADVANCES BILL AND THE PUBLIC PBESS. The fight over the State Advances Bill continues with, increasing vigor, the principal centre of operations having during the past week been shifted from the House of Assembly to the public platform, while the columns of the press still teem with letters on the subject. Judging from the feeling manifested at the numerous meetings held in the suburbs, public opinion in favor of tbe measure is growing stronger day by day, although this is carefully suppressed by the papers opposed to the principle. The suppression of a mere opinion, however, is not of much importance, no matter how strong the evidence may be in support of that opinion. But when important facts having a direct bearing upon a question of such vital moment are suppressed and distorted so as to make the worse appear the better reason, and to give an entirely false impression of what has occurred, the public have room for complaint...

Poetry. THE COMMONPLACE SET. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 16 August 1895

Poetry. THE COMMONPLACE SET. Should you meet us some day in the city, A man, early old, grave and gray, And a quaint little maid, scarcely pretty, In faded, old-fashioned array, With hardly a-glance you would pass us, And straightway forget you had met We two of the great struggling ariny— The commonplace set. Her scarce subdued childhood still lingers In bearing, in look, and in tone, And close in her small gloveless fingers She tenderly presses my own. And we look in the wonderful windows. And, somehow, are wont to forget We belong to the ranks of a toiling And commonplace set. When the sunset lights up the great river In the gold gleam we stand, I and she, And watch the swift current which ever Flows on to its guerdon—the sea ; And we try to imagine we, likewise, May reach a fair future—and yet, How small is our chance of promotion, The commonplace set. Sometimes I am tempted to wonder If, given a chance and a start, Away from the tide which beats under The bravest and stoutest o...

THE FRANCHISE EXTENSION BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 16 August 1895

THE FRANCHISE EXTENSION BILL. The fact that the Hon. Dr. Campbell lias decided to support the Franchise Extension Bill redounds to the credit of that gentleman as an honest politician, and at the same time inspires the hope that the Bill may become law. Since his election in 1891, Dr. Campbell appears to have changed his views somewhat with reference to this question, but when before the electors on that occasion he spoke so definitely and so strongly in favor of Upper House reform that he feels himself bound in honor either to carry out the policy then indicated, or to resign his position in the Council. He has accepted the former alternative, and will vote for the Bill. We do not know what Dr. Campbell's present views may be, but it is certainly creditable to his sense of honor that he has decided not to allow those views to interfere with the implied pledge he gave to the electors by whom he was returned that he would support the reforms which the Bill seeks to bring about. It wi...

Democratic Societies. The • Democratic Glcb.—at the Demo cratic Club on Sunday, August 11, the Hon. G. McGregor ill the chair, Mr. J. Hutchison gave an address on " The Youngest Democracy." He briefly referred to the eloquent address lately delivered by the Hon. J. L. Parsons, entitled " The Oldest Democracy," and said that while adorning his tale that gentleman failed to clearly point the moral, which ought to be the aim of all educational lectures. The question which concerned us was, how are we as the youngest democracy ? He regretted to say distrust, discontent, and jealousy had not entirely disappeared. Some misconception existed as to the constitution of the United Labor Party through the gross misrepresen tation of Mr. Proud and two or three others, whose utterances seenied calculated to cause division. The - Labor Paity was the political bulwark of the democracy, and its strength lay in its broadness. It welcomed every man and woman who was prepared to abide by its constitut...

The State Advances Bill. A SUPPRESSED REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 16 August 1895

He looked upon it as a measure of -such im portance that it should be carefully dis cussed and considered by all. By the tone of the advertisement they might suppose that this Bill was something that he did not support while on the hustings two years before, but he would remind them that such was not the case. He then advocated the extension of our Saviugs Bank into more of a national institution in order to extend its usefulness and give its depositors greater security. So much had been said and written about this subject during the past few weeks from various stand...
