RACING. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 9 November 1894

RACING. In the Derby ten faced the starting machine. Dreamland started a warm favourite, but the son of Trenton could only get fourth position, The Harvester (Sheet Anchor—Springtime) being first from Mala chite and Bonnie Scotland. Destiny and Question cantered in with the crowd. The Maribyrnong Plate was won by Arihi (Malua—Discard), IJlue Cap second, Wallace third, Challenger fourth, Aurarla fifth.. The winner, ridden by Moran, gained a two-lengths verdict. The Coburg Stakes fell to Escapade (Chester—Episode), Taranaki and Pilatus being the placed horses. The " dead bird" that went the rounds of the clubs in town on Monday night was The Golden King, but the " whispered" good thing didn't come off. The Melbourne Cup was run on Tuesday, and resulted in a victory for Mr. \V. F. PurcUes' Patron, 9 st. 5 lb., by Grand Flaneur—Olga, Devon and Nada being in the places. Time, 3 min. 31 sec. Bruin was well up fourth. The winner carried his heavy burden in gallant style, and although an ou...

Sport and Pastime. CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 9 November 1894

Sport and Pastime. [By Tobo.] CRICKET. Last Saturday afternoon on the Adelaide Oval HindmarsU and Souths, Adelaides and Norwoods met. This was the first appearance of George GLffen against his old club, and the game was watched with much interest. Norwoods batted first, and when stumps were drawn the score stood at 202 for 7 wickets, A. Green heading the list with 47 runs. Giffen took 4 wickets, Delaney 2, Winnall 1. In the match Hindmarsli v. Souths the last-named started batting, and when time was called the score-board showed 6 wickets for 280. Bennett played good cricket for his 71; Dyer making 35 before a good catch by Holbrook caused his retirement. At the Kensington Oval Australs met the North Adelaides, and made 9S for 4 wickets, E. Peters making 52 out of the total. Claxton was most successful with the ball. Stoddart's English Eleven made a sad exhibition of a local eighteen at Gawler, on November 3 and 5. Batting first, the Englishmen scored 368 for eight wickets (Ward 11S...

Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 9 November 1894

Notes. FBy Cyn.1 The deputation to the Premier on the Employers' Liability Bill reminds one of the account of such an interview in "The Story of my Dictatorship." There is 110 doubt that Mr. L. A. Jessop showed the great weakness of such Acts of Parliament when he said that employers would simply have to insure the employes, and take the premiums out of wages. Again, would this Act protect any workmen in steam co operative factories where each employ^ is a , member of the Company. Do we not first want to make it optional oa the part of the worker whether he will work for himself or for another.

On the Wing. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 9 November 1894

On the Wing. The Times even admits that the Lords want reforming—wonders will never cease. The September number of the British Labor Gazette reports frovn New South Wales : —"Coal trade improving in August" —strange report that. Newsboy in Brisbane sentenced^ to six years in Industrial Asylum for stealing nine newspapers. For swindling a bank aud robbing women and orphans a man of society would get off with half that time. The New South Wales Government got over £20,000 from one will recently—nothing like your graduated death duties for getting at the wealthy. Miss Willard, the prohibitionist, is a real live champion of labor. Farmers pay their landlords in Great Britain £60,000,000 in rents—no wonder times are bad for the agriculturist. The corner lots in Babylon and Ninevah, which once had a fabulous value, are now worth next to nothing—population that in creases values.

On This Side and That. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 9 November 1894

On This Side and That. if 1 No term or iiiuendo seems to be too gross or ill-uatured for the ljibor me nber of colonial Parliaments. Alii wrongs political are laid to liis charge, and|to judge by the information supplied by; the press and league of the moneyed classes, they are responsible for every kind of evil imaginable —lack of employment, low price of produce, extra taxes, &e. Corrupt! dreadfully cor rupt ! and the country 'would be better without them. But workers are not going to believe these statements. The labor members were put in because the old order of Parliament was one-sided, and no justice was shown to the masses. As for corruption, pah! Why, only the other day, in Newfoundland, ten or a dozen members, including Premier aud other notables (not labor .[members), were unseated for their vile doings. The foulest mouthed, the most reprobate, the frothiest, emptiest debaters in our ' colonial Parlia ments are found in other circles than those of labor. It is ever...

Labor Arcadias. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 9 November 1894

Labor Arcadias. Now that so large an amount of public interest is centered, in village settlement schemes the time may not be inopportune to draw the attention of Parliamentary and other representatives of labor as to what is going on at certain rural arcadias of a more pretentious order. Some years have elapsed since, with considerable blare of trumpets. Press laudation, and Governmental conc3ssion, certain special settlements were estab lished under company auspices within the ; respective boundaries of South Australia an l Victoria. With the question as to whether promotory effort lias achieved reward or failure in the dual enterprise under notice it is proposed to deal only in kind. If the unsatisfactory, not to say degrading, conditions under which men toil at the aforesaid settlements can be taken as an indication in the matter, they are without doubt the most dismal frosts to be found upon the face of this con tinent to-day. The brief detail of a few naked facts, easy at corr...

THE NORWICH PARLIAMENT OF LABOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 9 November 1894

NORWICH PARLIAMENT OF LABOR. We have received some communications from the old land about the great auDual parliament of labour, held recently at Nor wich. Among the chief questions discussed were the Eight-Hours Bill, employers liability, the lot of the agricultural laborer, the land question, co-operation, factory laws, and payment of members. JoLua Burus and Tom Maun especially appear to have been in rare fighting trim, and treated their hearers to some grand bursts of rough oratory. We extract the following :— "Just before the close of the second day's proceedings Mr. John Burns gave us one of his terrific philippics in his best slogging style, which brought down the house. The object of his attack was on this occasion Government employes who black] egged after their day's work was done. He instanced postmen especially, who, lie declared, often blacklegged amongst the poor waiters at rich men's tables, and he once more caine down heavily 011 the journalistic-sweater and blaekleg...

Labor Notes and News. Swedish workmen threaten a general strike if Government do not grant com plete adult suffrage. New Yoke and Plattsburgh starting daily workmen's papers to help unemployed. A New Zealand squatter, who wrote for " police protection," received the following reply from the Police Department:—" Sir— Your letter re police protection for Benmore Station during shearing time has been duly submitted to the Hon. the Defence Minister, who has directed me to inform you that from enquiries made it appears that if there is any disturbance it will undoubtedly arise from your injudicious action in arranging with an Oamaru shearer now in New South Wales to bring over sixteen shearers from that colony, and therefore in this matter you must take the responsibility of your owu actions. But the Police Department most distinctly decline to bring about a quarrel between shearers and employers, and there fore you must not depend upon the department for protection under those circumsta...

UNEMPLOYMENT. [Lecture by Mr. J. A. Hobson, M.A., on "The Causes of Uemployment," from Fabian News for October, 1894.] [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 9 November 1894

UNEMPLOYMENT. [Lecture by Mr. J. A. Hobson, M.A., on " The Causes of Unemployment," from Fabian JYtics for October, ] S94.] The lecturer began by remarking that labour is looked upon as something dis agreeable, yet many persons are ever taking endless trouble to seek it. Unemployment is a real and^ terrible evil, though it is not easy to obtain accurate statistics regarding it. Amongst the middle classes, perhaps^ one-half of the persons described as pro fessional men are virtually unemp'oycd. Amongst the poorer folk there is in Eist London, according to Charles Booth, a whole class B, numbering 100,000, who are abso lutely superfluous. The wealth they crc ifce and consume could advantageously be bjth created and consumed by other existing persons. This class amounts to 11£ per cent, of tlie population. Taking skilled trades, the unemployed have \raried frj.n 2 to 10 per cent, during the past seven yexrs, and we may take 6 per cent, as a fair average. Less organized workers are pro ...

FINANCIAL DISHONESTY A CAUSE OF BAD TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 9 November 1894

FINANCIAL DISHONESTY A CAUSE OF BAD TIMES. Let those who so glibly talk about the doings and carryings on of the working man in connection with the shaking confidence of colonial capitalists read the following few remarks by the leading London weekly, and they may then perhaps be tempted to attach blame where it is aue, viz., to financial rottenness and dishonesty :—" The Bank of England is said to have half the gold of the world locked up. . . . The millions above the ordinary reserves which arc hot lying in the coffers of the Bank, in a time of confidence would be circulating freely, and would be employed in the payment of wages and in the purchase of commodities. This idle gold means idle hands and hungry mouths. Thus the whole community suffers, more or less, from the panic caused by men of the Jabez Balfour class. The mis chief they do cannot be measured by the misery of the victims whom they have directly plundered. The Governor of the Bank of England does, indeed, iucline to ...

Round and About. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 9 November 1894

Round and About. [Br Momus-3 Let me see, the particular part of my narrative to be continued was that dealing with the Dutch auctioneering business. I think I mentioned that a gentleman of the hammer was in the wild throes of excite ment, attempting to gather a crowd. I see him now standing on a piano case, with his "splendid assortment" of Brummagem ware, appealing to the sympathy of the passers-by, praying that they would "just have a look not necessarily to buy, oh no ; only to hare a look. And by dint of holloaing, smiling, bowing, and wildly gesturing, he gathered the people round. Now was the time to see the diplomacy of the fellow. Easy enough to get a crowd, but the trouble is to keep them—quite different, you see, to that business about catching and cooking the hare. Two bush men made a move outwards, but the adroit salesman had 'em. " Hi! Mister ! just a moment !" He or she who hesitates at a moment like i this is lost. They turned, and in answer to the suave and oily requ...

Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 9 November 1894

Notes. [By Phillibuster.] There's nothing succeeds like success. Coming through the town recently I saw outside a tobacconist's shop the following intimation hung up in "black and white" :— Tips Is. each. Paris and Bruin last week. Cup and Derby. Truly I thought as I strolled on the community is greatly made up of " tom phools." Credulity pure and simple (mostly simple) is the factor that allows half tl»e world to lire on its wits, and very poor wits at that. Tips are always a most risky form of commodity in which to speculate unless they be of the same kind as those generally dropped into the hand of genial and comfortable Civil servants—for services of one kind or other (mostly the other) received. The next thing we shall most likely hear of will be the opening of a tip shop by the Sporting Editor of the Herald, who, so far, lias made some very good guesses at winners. ' As a matter of fact I could guarantee to do the trick myself with a few bits of paper and the help of the kiddi...

Extracts from Minority Re port of Labor Commission (Great Britain). Sweating.—That employers who give out M'c.'k to be done off their premises should be held legally responsible in the same manner as a factory owner for the sanitary con dition, hours of labour, education, &c., of the persons thus employed.

Notes from the "British Labour Gazette." [BOARD OF TRADE ORGAN.] [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 9 November 1894

Notes from the "British Labour Gazette." [Board of Trade Organ.] The keynote generally sounded In the September number is depression. Nearly every trade reports lack of employment. About 56 changes in wages made, and 11 in horn's. Of the former 45 were increases, affecting 3,900 persons, and 10 decreases, involving 14,530 persons. About 1,000 workers were affected by reduction of hours. Paupers.—The numbers relieved in one day in the middle of the month were for August, 312,762; and for July, 30S.671. The increase compared with the figures for 1S93 is 9 per 10,000, the rate for that month being 205. Generally speaking the harvest has been a good one for the agricultural labourers throughout the country, both as regards wages and employment, owing to the heavy yield, and the inability to use machines where the crops are laid by the storms. At the Norwich Congress there were in aggregate 372 delegates, representing 1,080,545 members. Of these, 91'4 per cent, were from Kngland, 6*4 per...

He was soon re-arrested. A doctor in the Argentine Republic has been killiug off a number of people with cholera germs—experimenting. His last feat was to poison himself, and save the hangman a job.
