THE "UNEMPLOYED" IN SYDNEY. Sydney, April 16. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889
THE 'UNEMPLOYED' IN SYDNEY. IBy Telegraph.! Sydney, April 16. It will be remembered that a short. time ago, In answer to continued clamor ing, between 100 and 200 unemployed were set to work at Shea's Creek reclaim ing works, therateB of wages given by the contractors being 5a. 6d. per day. Since then the number of men has been considerably augmented, until quite 200 were employed. Yesterday the men were Informed that they would no longer be paid by the day but at the rate of 6d. per yard, and in consequence they In a body threw down their tools and refused to work, claiming that they could not make sufficient to keep them in food alone. The work, which consists of making trenches 3 feet deep through soft swamp land, is not particularly hard, and the contractors believe that the men wonld do equally as .well, if tot better, by piecework. Indeed, some of them had themselves been wanting to be put on piecework. Later in the day a deputa tion of men saw* the Undersecretary of Works, an...
THE IRISH QUESTION. TO THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889
THE IRISH QUESTION. XO THE EDITOB F Sir — In the rambling statement by 'Unionist' re Mr, John Dillon's speech great Btress is laid on the reference to the prosperity of Belfast, which ' Unionist' quotes haB so increased in population, &c, though governed by the same laws as the rest of Ireland. What about the other districts ? He fails to describe the cause, and forgets to mention the condition of other cities in Ireland. Now, let ub take for example Galway aa it was and as it is. The following gloomy picture is from the 'pen of the special correspondent of the London Times: —'Galway though one of the oldest cities in Ireland, with a dwindling population num bering 13,€00, ia a picturesque old town going quickly to decay. Yet it eti.ioys 6very natural advantage which ought to insure it a wealthy and basy vitality. The harbor at slight expense might be made the finest on the western coast. The watetflow from the vast reservoir of Lake Corib with its fall of 14 feet might driv...

BIBLE BEADING IN STATE SCHOOLS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889
BIBLE READING IN STATE SCHOOLS. TO THE EDITOB. Sir — I am quite in sympathy with the views of your correspondent ' D. M. B.,' and can substantiate the fact as to the thoroughness of the instruction given in the scriptures in my native land, Scotland. The late Matthew Arnold, the greatest educationist of his day, in the following remarka shows that it is the people's question, therefore the people will have to settle it by acknowledging God's Holy Word and eivincr it the premier place in the day- school curriculum. Mr. .Arnold aaya :— 'Religions instruction, which politicians making or administering the popular school Eeek to exclude as embarrassing is a formative influence, an element of culture of the very highest value, and more indis pensable in the popular school than any other. Political pressure tends to exclude thiB element cf culture ; clerical pressure tends to give it a false character. The interest of the people ia to get a true character imparted to it, and to have it pl...

GENERAL CABLE NEWS. PFrom our own Correspondent.] London, April 17 The Agents-General have Bent Air. GoBchen, Chancellor of the Exchequer, a joint memorandum requesting him to introduce this session a measure dealing with the question of the Investment of trust funds In colonial stock.

EDUCATION WITHOUT RELIGION. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889
EDUCATION WITHOUT RELIGION. TO THE KDITOB. : Sir— The law has set apart a maximum of 25 of the 148 hours of the week for eecular education, and the clerics and those who wish to force their religious fads down others' throats are clamoring to have their wishes enforced in theBe 25 hoars ; no other time will suit them. A portion of that set apart for useful teaching must be given up to teaching their ideaB. Now if these people really wish to have the young educated in their rehgiouB ideas, why can they not use some of the balance of the week to do so themselves? No; this would involve some labor on their part, and eo their religion must be taught in school hours and by echool teachers. In times gone by the Church did all the teaching ; the State now doeB most of it, namely, secular teachiDg ; end the Church coolly aBks the State to do the religious teaching also. Whftt does the Church mean to do at all in future?— 1&m'&c- DEMOCRAT. Semaphore, April 11, 18S9.
REDUCTION OF WAGES AT MOONTA MINES. TO THE EDUCE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889
REDUCTION OF WAGES AT MOONTA MINES. TO THE EDITOB. bir— WhOst looking over your'most valuable paper of the 13& inst. I noticed a paragraph, to the effect that great indignation was caused on Friday when the manager announced that there would be a reduction in the wages, that tbe last rise would be taken off, and 10 per cent, beside. This I consider [to te an out rageous reduction, when all things are taken into consideration. I will admit *hat at the present time copper is low, but it is not so low as tc justify such a reduction as this. When copper was up to such a height how much benefit did the working man derive from it? I say very little to what he should have had. The mine was paying good dividends, and yet the poor working man's wage waa the same. This went on for some months. At last the men were raised 3d. per day — yea, sir, a whole 3d. — with copper still going higher, Things went on pretty well for a few months, and dividends were Etill paid,; The men thought tha...

TO THE EDITOB. Sir— It was with feelings the reverse of pleasurable! that I perused 'J, Good's' letter, I notice that he Bimply mak«s assertions, but not being able to prove them he wisely re frains from the attempt. Does tb&gentleman consider that Bible-reading is such a benefit 2 If he does, Iinust Bay that £ differ feomhim, as I think it is of little or no ubb. The erentle aaan, although a grandfather, has not' lived long enough to discover that the gospel of Christ consists of cauBes to be Bet up, and which if set up will produce the effects which Holy Writ says shall tollow. There are plenty of Bible .readers in our . gaols ; men who were instructed in the Bible- reading schools of the past, Mr. Good asserts that tie children have ' no moral teaching, but are trained to be lieht. trifling, vain, silly, and frivolous, and their minds are steeled agamat anything sacred and poisoned against all that is good?' This includes all and sundry engaged in fee work of teaching, an...

COMPARISONS ABE ODIOUS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889
COMPARISONS ARE ODIOUS. TO THE KDITOB. Sir — I have noticed from letters you have published with reference to the Fort Augusta shooting case that there is a growing deter mination on the part of South Australian man hood to vindicate the rights of a married man to protect the honor of his family. I was glad to see that Mr, M. W. Green bad the courage to express his opinion upon the subject, but when he compared the social purity cf the mother country and also that of Victoria with the evil state of this colony it appeared to me that there was much verdancy about Mr. Green's ideas of the world aa it in reality ia, and that it would be well to throw a little light upon the subject. I should be sorry to damp the ardor of men and women who are justly indignant when they Gee ' villany triumphant,' while thoge who have the manliness to raise up a standard against social evil have to snfler defeat with all its consequences. My observations carry me back to a time before Sir Robert Peel had...
THE HOMESTEAD LEAGUE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889
THE HOMESTEAD LEAGUE. TO THE EDITOB, Sir — A great deal has been said and written by friends of the working man about settling the people on the land. An idea has occurred to me which if carried out would be the means of enabling many a man to take a working man's block. No man can take up one of those blocks without a little money, and the Govern ment, -though aBked time after time to lend £50 or £100 at a little interest to enable him to build a house and prepare his homestead, have refused. Mv idea is that the Homestead - League should try and enroll 1,000 members, the admission fee to be 6d. each, and the con tributions to be 1b. per week. The benefits to be £50 per member; the £rat £60 to be given one month after 1,000 members are enrolled. The society would thus be enabled to place four members per month in homesteads which they might reasonably look upon as their own, for they -would have them with right of purchase or to re-lease them. The mode of giving the benefit to be— t...
LOSSES BY FLOODS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889
LOSSES BY FLOODS. TO THE EDITOB. Sir — Thelat6 floods have caused heavy losses to many persons, probably losses that they can ill afford to bear, and that may cripple them for Borne time to come. But no one will deny that all the damage done throughout the colony will not amount to 5 per cent, of the benefit in money value that will be derived by the whole community during the ensuing nine Or ten months. Now- mhiln T rliiiiLrtnxntn, «« . . --- ? --? '-???-» — UIVKJ^^UVID VU principle of 'knocking at the Government door' for every little thing that is wanted, it has occurred to me that under these circum stances it would be a fair thing to expect the Government to render some assistance to those who have IobI by the floods, which at the same time have bo greatly benefited the country generally. I have no doubt private liberality will do something, and I would suggest that a general subscription be started, which the Government might be asked to subsidise pound for pound. In the distr...

"HONESTY IS THE BEST POLICY." TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889
' HONESTY IS THE BEST POLICY.' TO THE EDITOB. . Sir— The above eomewhat hackneyed phrako has a wide .application. It has occurred to me in connection with some recent events, and some also of older date, that the Baying is especially applicable to mining affairs. How many ''swindles' have been * put upon the market during the last 12 months 2 and how many mining ventures, though not exactly swindles, have been represented in far brighter colors than was warranted, so that bitter dis appointment has resulted? We have not .had many cases bo groBS and glaring as the ''Great Northern,' and the taint of that .will no doubt stick to those persons most prominently con nected with it, until they realise that ' honesty is the best policy.' How few of all the hun dreds of persons who dabble in mines, or rather in mining shares, do so with the genuine deeiie of developing the mines them selves. Is it cot rather with the view of realising a speedy profit, and the bigger the better 2 I could nam...
