Passing Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 16 August 1895

Passing Notes. [By Tempus.] The interest Avliich wealthy ladies con nected with the N. D.L. and the Young Patriots' Association are taking in their humbler sisters is truly pathetic. Their yearnings for the welfare of working men's wives, their children, and their husbands, is really marvellous. The astonishing feature of this new-found interest is that it is of such sudden growth. Only a few short months ago. before women had a vote, these same "carriage ladies" cared no more for their washerwoman and their charwoman than they did for a blackfellow, and not so much as they did for the " poor benighted heathen in foreign lands." * * * » How great the change effected by Women's Suffrage ! At the last general election it was said by the candidates who supported monopoly and obstruction that their wives would be demoralise,! I>y taking an active interest in politics, and that, there fore, they were compelled to oppose Women's Suffrage. Now that demoralisa tion must be complete, for ...

Current Topics. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 16 August 1895

Current Topics. Ourselves.—When the present editor of the Weeldg Herald took the position, he did so with the understanding that his per manent appointment would be subject to a plebiscite of the shareholders of the Co operative Printing and Publishing,Company of S. A. at the end of three months' service. That plebiscite has just been completed, the questions put to the shareholders being — "Are you satisfied with the present editor?" "Are you satisfied with the general conduct of the paper ?" Shareholders responded freely to the invitation to express their opinion, and wh<*n the replies were counted it was found that over 98 per cent, were in the affirmative. This result is of course extremely gratifying to the editor, whose sole desire has been to make the Herald readable and useful. The vote just taken seems to indicate that he has to some ex tent succeeded in this. The Herald is doing a good work, and its value is becoming more recognised week by week. It has not yet ...

Items for Women. INSTRUCT THE WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 16 August 1895

Items for Women. INSTRUCT THE WOMEN. By a majority of 22 votes to 5 tlie Tasmanian Assembly would give the same powers to women as to men in voting for the Legislative Council. This was the first demand made for women's rights in South Australia, and if it had not been for the .strenuous opposition of the Labor Party to a measure which would have increased not only the power but the social influence of the Upper ouse, this might have been carried. on'y aspect which woman's suffrage presents in England, is that of the limited vote only to be exercised by women householders. No married woman, unless possessed of property in ,Could have a vote by Sir Albert Eollitt s Bill. Adult suffrage which the women of South Australia owe to the Labor Party, is a purely democratic advance, and ought to work tor truly democratic interests. But it may be made to work in the contrary direction if agents, paid and unpaid creep into men's homes and take captive women, laden with, prejudices working upon...

Dave Hargrave's Mission. CHAPTER XX. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 16 August 1895

Dave Hargrave's Mission. [By Harry J. White.] CHAPTER XX. All further argument was put a stop to by the mud pilot bellowing down the companion way that the boat was berthed, and so once more Ope turned towards the old American and said in a ferrent tone, " Once again, old friend, thank you, and Lord bless you; I must leave you now," and shaking hands we left the old man sitting in a dazed kind of way on the couch in the saloon. When they were at the top of the ladder old Ope put his head down and sang out, " Hold yourself in readiness at a moment's notice. Captain Smoker, if you please, and consider the Water Nymph under our charter, sir, till you hear from us." There was a faint, hi! hi! from below with what sounded more like a sob than anything else, and as they stepped on to the dock from the gangway Dave's old patron turned to him and said, " and now my gallant young companion, its your j turn, but you I do not know what to j do with, for you are in a fair way to become swallowe...

MR. GLYNN AND THE STATE ADVANCES BILL. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 23 August 1895

MB,. GLYNN AND THE STATE ADVANCES BILL. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—As the State Advances Bill is looked upon with very great favor by all liberals, and especially the farming community, I attended Mr. Glynn's meeting at the North Adelaide Institute on Monday evening, 19fch inst., to hear him lecture against the Bill, and I was very much disappointed indeed to find that a man of his undoubted ability should draw so largely on his imagination to support his contention that State interference in banking, as set .forth in the Bill now before the House, will end in disaster. I have heard Mr. Glynn before, and I have read his utterances on public matters, aud always thought he was a man who would in his place in Parliament go for that which was best for the general good, irrespective of who introduced it. His lecture, I consider, was more of a pi«ee of special pleading for the banking and money lendiug fraternity than a fair criticism of the Bill; in fact, he did not refer to more than three or f...

A PLEA FOR THE RAILWAY REPAIRERS' CHILDREN. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 23 August 1895

A PLEA FOR TI1K RAILWAY REPAIRERS' CHILDREN. TO THK EDITOR. Sir—The educational privileges enjoyed by residents in populous districts do not extend, to the railway linemen and their families in outlying districts, and I wish through your columns to put in a plea for these people. While travelling recently from Bordertown to Adelaide through the desert I had plenty of opportunity of seeing the effect of this neglect. Some of the line men have families of from three to eight in number, and up to 12 and 13 years of age, and these children have never been to school. Iii speaking to some of the parents I found that they were anxious to give their children an education, but some of them are but poorly educated themselves, and in any case they have but little opportunity for teaching tlieir children after their own work is done. Some of them said they had applied to be removed to some place withiu reach of a school, but their request had not been granted, although in one case at least the ...

THE BREWERS' EMPLOYES AND THE BREWERS' MONOPOLY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 23 August 1895

THE BREWERS' EMPLOYES AND THE BREWERS' MONOPOLY. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—In reading the report of the proceed ings at the meeting at the Brewers' Em ployes' Union, I thought the members of Parliament present at that meeting might well cry, " Save us from our friends." When will working men of the type of some of the speakers at that i»ieetu]<? learn that by such action they not only bring discredit on themselves, but are retarding the noble work that our Legislature have in hand, namely, the restriction of those evils that hang like a millstone round the neck of pro gress, and eventually the abolition of all monopolies 1 I have no desire, nor is it necessary for me to enter on a long con troversy regarding the evils of this parti cular monopoly; that it is an evil is recognised by every thoughtful man and woman to-day, and being a fact it requires no argument to establish it. My qbje'ct iij writing this letter is to protest most emphatically against my fellow working men being...

People's Column. [We do not hold ourselves in any way j 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 I public interest.] THE PORT LABOR TROUBLE. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—I beg a small space in the Herald for the purpose of offering a word or two to the lumpers, perhaps showing how the present labor trouble may be got over without difficulty, and in a progressive manner. It appears to most right-minded and reasonable ! lookers-on that the employers will not agree to any offer made by the workers ; on the contrary by their actions collectively they have used the pruning knife fairly well, especially Saturday work where they have nipped Is. 9d. out of six hours' work, which in my humble opinion is scarcely fair on the part of more than one party on the fat side, who by their influence ought to stand by their old mates and always remember that it was something mor...

THE CONVICT SHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 23 August 1895

THE CONVICT SHIP. " Another shipload of convicts is on the way to New Caledonia."—Cable. Unhallowed carrier on the sea. Darksome nimbus encircles thee On thy course to earthly Hades, Where latent virtue rots and faides In outcasts of humanity. Angry waves may rage, winds blow, Mocking the throbbing hearts below Of caged humanity within, Born to a life of shame and sin, Deep quaffers of life's cup of woe. Misfortune's children on life's wave, From inbred crime no hand to save; In competition's battle foil'd, In the struggle battered, soiled ; Hence to perdition's gloomy grave. Hail glorions day when such shall end, When man to man shall be a friend, The rich man's right to grasp for more, Robbing the poor of earth's good store, To fallen angel's fate descend. Uplift the weak, maintain the strong, Banish oppression, vanquish wrong, Poor fallen brethren in the strife Lead kindly on to purer life, And freedom which to men belong. Border Town. " Jasper.'

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE: AUGUST 23, 1895. THE BATTLE OF STATE ADVANCES TO FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 23 August 1895

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE : AUGUST 23, 1895. THE BATTLE OF STATE AD VANCES TO FARMERS. Thebe are a number of important measures before Parliament at the present time which deserve more than a passing notiee, but the State Advances Bill so completely overshadows them all in the public interest that it is exciting that this, and the unfair opposition to which it has been subjected, must be our excuse for again referring to it. The Herald has during the past week been stigmatised both in Parliament and by the evening echo of the Register as a party I organ, but we may fairly claim in our advocacy of this truly great national i measure to rise above all parly considerations. Our first duty is to I advocate justice for the great body of the people who have hitherto been so much neglected by the representatives of wealth in their capacity as the lawmakers of the past, but we are fully conscious that the welfare of the workers depends upon the welfare of the producers, and we therefore a...

Poetry. THE EARTH IS THE LORD'S. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 23 August 1895

Poetry. THE EARTH IS THE LORD'S. On the front of the Royal Exchange, London, is " The earth is the Lord's, and the fnlness thereof." "The earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof They have carved it in letters of stone On the mart where the modern pirate stands, Plotting to seize in his soft, white hands The harvest the poor have sown. " The earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof," And the poor are the Lord's great care ; But His priests' great care is the pirate's soul, For their prayers are bought with the heavy toll That is wrong from the toilers' share. *' The earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof Yet His people that delve therein Are the muzzled oxen, faint with blows, Who. starving, tread out the corn for those That neither toil nor spin.

The reforms you advocated were always for the country's welfare, and it is to be hoped the share holders will render you all assistance in your work; also that my fellow-farmers and other producers will do all in their power to circulate such an excellent organ.
