Democratic Societies. The Democratic Club.—There was a large attendance at the Democratic Club on Sunday evening, when Mr. J. M.

THE LABOR PABTY AND TAXATION. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 30 August 1895

THE LABOR PABTY AND TAXATION. The question of the adjustment of the incidence of taxation is one that cannot be longer delayed, and the decision of the Labor Party with reference to the Budget proposals of the Government is an important step in this direction. It is now almost universally agreed that direct taxation is the fair method of raising Tevenue ; the system of Customs taxes for revenue purposes is perhaps the worst. It falls with greatest severity on those least able to pay, and the vrorst feature of it is that no one knows just how much he does pay, or liow much of his contribution goes to the State, and how much to the middleman. The policy of the Labor Party is to make taxation direct, and to remove from the necessaries of life the imposts with which they are at present burdened. This would be an immense relief to the poorer plasses who use these necessaries, as they would not only be freed from the Customs duties, but also from the intermediate profits on these duties c...

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE: AUGUST 30, 1895. THE FINANCIAL POSITION. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 30 August 1895

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE : AUGUST 30, 1895. THE FINANCIAL POSITION. The fact that the financial year ended with a. deficit closely approximating to £100,000 has cast a shadow over the political situation during the past few days, and for the moment even the State Advances Bill is lost sight of. The occurrence of a deficit of even the amount stated is not a specially alarming circum stance per se, especially when it has long been known that sucli an event was inevitable, but its gravity lies in the fact that it has occurred despite the most rigid economy, and the most careful hus banding of every available source of revenue. It brings very forcibly home the fact that the depression tinder which we have been laboring has been the most severe the colony has ever experienced, at least since the early days of the gold fever. It does not, however, warrant the alarmist attitude adopted by a section of the city press, or the statement that "South Australia was never before so near to a f...

People's Column. RESIDENT ENGINEERS ON OUR RAILWAYS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 30 August 1895

People's Column. I [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, withiu reasonable limits, of matters of public interest.] RESIDENT ENGINEERS ON OUR RAILWAYS. TO THE EDITOR. | Sir—Seeing that our financial year has ended with a deficit and the Government are applying themselves to the work of re trenchment and economy, may I be per mitted to point out where a saving of some £5,000 per year, cau be effected. I refer to the amount paid yearly for engineering supervision on our railways, which amount is set down at £6,S48 per annum. Now, Sir, I maintain that the greater part of this large amount could be saved without in any way imperilling the safety of the travelling public or the efficiency of our railway management. At present we hare a staff of some seven or eight resident engineers with some twenty-three or twenty-four assistants, at a cost of nearly £7,0...

Passing Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 30 August 1895

Passing Notes. [By Tempus.] How difficult it would be for the little weekly trumpet blown by the National Ass. to malign and disparage the Labor Party if only it were compelled to adhere to the truth. Truth, however, is by no means a strong poiut of the organ of capitalism and obstruction ; in fact, the less of truth there is in its reference to the Labor Party the more freely it can pour out its abuse. If truthful it could not be condemnatory, and as its special mission is to damage the Labor Party it cannot of course afford to be truthful. * * * # Last week it accused the Labor members of using imported cement for the building of what it calls their temple, because it could be got for a penny or two a cask less than the local article. This is about an equal admixture of ignorance and falsehood, and so does very well for this particular paper when dealing with the Labor Party. In the first place the Labor members, as Labor members, have nothing to do with the building. In the secon...

Current Topics. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 30 August 1895

Current Topics. Labor Members in the Country. —On Saturday last the Hon. G. McGregor and Mr. Archibald, M.P., Visited Sutherlands, and addressed a meeting of residents in the evening. Mr. Willis presided, and Sir Jenkin Coles and Mr. White, M.P., the members for the district, were both present. Although the weather was excessively wet and boisterous, the room was crammed to the door, many people having travelled dis tances of eight and ten miles to be present. Sir Jenkin Coles having dealt with the State Advances Bill previously, the visiting members addressed themselves to the same subject, Mr. Archibald dealing with some of Sir Jenkin's criticisms of the measure. Sir Jenkin Coles explained the position he had taken, and Mr. White declared himself as opposed to the Bill. Mr. McGregor followed, and spoke pointedly and strongly in favor of the Bill, the meeting being very sympathetic throughout. A vote of thanks was passed to the Labor members for their visit. On Sunday evening Messr...

INDIVIDUALISM v. COLLECTIVISM. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 30 August 1895

INDIVIDUALISM v. COLLECTIVISM. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—If man's chief purpose in life is tlie pursuit of happiness, how comes it that which is most antaganistic to that pursuit should hold sway over mankind ? Is it not to be attributed to the fact that men who have acquired the right to teach mankind the precepts of the Christ and true govern ment neither comprehend the meaning of the one or understand the basis of the other, and so land us iuto individualism ; that a a life of individualism forcing many to work for one, and the one ever seekiug his own happiness and welfare at the expense of the happiness and welfare of the others, engenders not happiness, but strife. Each unit bent on promoting his own happiness sets every other unit in opposition, and results in continued warfare. The exigencies of mankind liave enrolled the people into vast communities, into nations of which col lectivism is the motive power, but indi vidualism steps in and divides the nation into oppressors and oppr...

THE HERALD CRITICISED. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 30 August 1895

THE HERALD CRITICISED. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—For the last few weeks I have taken a copy of the Herald, and by careful reading have come to the conclusion that it is a good sound paper. The social and political opiuions advanced have long been mine, and frequently in public advocated. I strongly approve of your outspoken views on woman's suffrage and the State Bank, and bave also hearty sympathy with your decided expo sure oE the petty meanness and unrighteous ness of the wealthy class. Hit out straight; cry aloud, and spare not, and the country's best men will be with you. Now, I am going to find fault with an article in your last issue. I allude to the comment on tlie American Government in sending ships of war to China for the purpose, as you say, of forcing the gospel upon the people by these means. I am not aware of any instance where this has been done siuce the conquest of Mexico and Peru. The avowed object of sending the above-named ships was not to compel the people to accept t...

THE MENINGIE DISTRICT COUNCIL. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 30 August 1895

THE MENINGIE DISTRICT COUNCIL. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—The balance-sheet of the Meningie | District Council for the year ending June j 30, 1S95, shows under the heading of " mis cellaneous expenditure" legal expenses £95 ISs. 6d., the income for the corresponding period being £1,056 ISs. Id. Comparing this with the combined law costs of four other Councils, viz., Kennion, Belalie, Mitcham, and Clinton (£22 lis. 8d.) this is undoubtedly an excessive item. Naturally the largest portion of this amount was ex pended in the futi'e attempt to recover a part o£ the money embezzled by the late Clerk, and supposed to be covered by his guarantee policy. The Council was advised by its solicitor that it had a strong case against the guarantee society, which, how ever, successfully resisted payment without the matter being brought into Court. Solicitors presumably are entitled to live, although the necessity is not apparent to everyone, so perhaps it is better that they should wring their sustenance ...

THE POLICE FORCE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 30 August 1895

THE POLICE FORCE. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—I notice that the Government have at last taken one step in the right direction by calling on all officers and men over the age of 60 to go before a Medical Board for ex amination as to their fitness for duty. It is only reasonable to suppose that after a man has attained sixty years he is to a great extent both mentally and physically weak, so it is with the old officers in the police force. They may be able to do a little light office work fairly well where there is no physical exertion required, but just put them to do a lot of long journeys on horse back, or to encounter strong powerful burglars and other disorderly characters, it would soon then be seen whether they had the faculties that every policeman should have. The country cannot afford to keep office policemen only, considering the state of the finances, neither should the Govern ment be a destitute asylum for old servants. I contend it requires very little physical or mental ability ...

Dave Hargrave's Mission. CHAPTER XXII. (continued). [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 30 August 1895

Dave Hargrave's Mission. [By Harry J. White.] CHAPTER XXII (continued). He could only talk at intervals, and in a spasmodic way, but yet he seemed pos sessed and animated with a fierce desire to speak. In fact, to look at Lis wasted sunken features, it seemed almost a miracle lie could speak at all. All .earned to be of the opionion that lie %l&^eliiious,-but catching hold o£ Ope he tried to pull him down to his pillow, saying in an audible whisper, " It's about Frank, your son, I am going to tell, and I want it all took down on paper, so that maybe it ain't too late to let the wrong be righted; but I believe ye'll curse me, Ope, good as you are; but xdind listen to it all, and then do what you like." Poor old Ope's face underwent a curious change. He looked perplexed; in fact, as lie told Dave, he was com pletely puzzled.

Items for Women. A TEST. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 6 September 1895

Items for Women. A TEST. Some time ago, in a collection of British pictures exhibited not a hundred miles from Adelaide, there were a few representing the same, or part of the same woodland scenery. They portrayed it at different seasons and from various aspects; they also doubtless showed how unlike or distinctive were the mental impressions which the same land scape produced on several individual artists. I gazed on them with much interest, and longed, as only an English woman can, for a peep at the old land. But one had for me a deeper significance. The painter had studied his subject in the forest for months, and, sheltered only by a hut, had worked assiduously, even when the weather was so cold that his materials froze while being used. This devotion to truth in his art tells its own story. The moral is obvious. The object for which we work and plead—the emancipation of labor—has been described for us from various different aspects, and depicted in glowing tints; we' have vowed...

The wind in the meantime had abated, and a shower served to lay the dust and clear the1 atmosphere. During the afternoon a large gathering assembled in the concert room iu the Eastern Aunexe, when a long programme of toasts and speeches was disposed of, the proceed ings lasting till nearly six o'clock.

The ceremony of laying the foundation stone having been completed, the procession was at once formed, and proceeded on its difficult and disagreeable journey in the face of a terrific duststorm, which by this time had filled the streets with blinding clouds, and made pedestrian exercises even under the inost favorable circumstances a most difficult and unpleasant task. The rjute was the same as in previous years, and all along the line of inarch the streets were crowded with thousands of people, who patiently bore the disagreeable surroundings in their desire to witness the greatest pageant of the year. Every doorstep, window, balcony, and parapet seemed to be thronged, and the paths on either side of the street were densely packed with the ex pectant multitude. In the course of the march several of the splendid banners of the trade societies were torn to fragments or otherwise damaged by the strong gusts of wind, which ■ rendered progress extremely difficult through...

THE TRADES HALL. Punctually at ten o'clock the Hon. W. A.

He explained that Mrs. Kingston had been invited to lay the foundation-atotie not only because-she was the honored wife of the Premier, with whom the workers had been associated from his boyhood, but because that lady had by her personal kindness won the love and esteem of all with whom she had come into contact, and because women in the future were to take a more active part in political matters than in the past. He personally thanked Mrs. Kingston for having consented to lay the stone, and briefly traced the history of the Trades Hall movement {particulars of which, together with a description of the b...
