THE TREES IN CITY PARKS AND SQUARES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 18 November 1899

THE TREES IN CITY PARKS AND SQUARES. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—As the mouthpiece of the workers will The Herald kindly grant some space in its columns for the question: " Will the workers and their leaders calmly stand by and see themselves and their children de prived of the only bits of nature, the only •cool shade and shelter available for hundreds during the burning heat of the many long days of summer, by those who are supposed to have their interest at heart ?" Before me lies the City Council's and city gardener's report. I have heard of and seen the feverish haste in execution of the vanaalistic plans of the latter, and the only conclusion •one can arrive at is that the former can have only vague ideas of the functions of trees or plants, and of the difference of conditions prevailing here and in England or America, nor can have read or studied much of what has been written or taught about either -during the last quarter of a century ; while the latter, in addition thereto, has prov...

ENGLISH MINERS AND THE WORKMEN'S COMPENSATION ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 18 November 1899

ENGLISH MINERS AND THE WORK MEN'S COMPENSATION ACT. The thirty-seventh annual meeting of the delegates of the Northumberland and Dur ham Miners' Permanent Relief Fund has been held at Newcastle-on-Tyne. Mr. Geo. Parkinson presided, and, in opening the proceedings, said that when the society was begun four per 1,000 of the men and boys employed in Durham and Northumberland were killed by accidents every year. The fatal accidents had now been reduced to 1 24 per 1,000 per annum, a fact which showed increased vigilance, better manage ment, and more general intelligence and practical knowledge on the part of officials and workmen. The Workmen's Compensa tion Act had had a decided effect on the society. The owners' percentage last year were over £2,000 less than in the preceding twelve months, and they had notices from all the firms except one—which was doubt ful—that they could not continue to pay percentages. This would make a difference of between £4,000 and £5,000 in the income of th...

A UNIQUE LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 18 November 1899

A UNIQUE LETTER. Particulars were given some time ago in the public press of an ingenious attempt to extract money from the unwary by asking them to assist in the recovery of a buried treasure somewhere in Spain. It appears from a letter addressed to Mr. H. Cronin, the well-known draper and importer of Halifax Street, that the treasure still lies snugly in its hiding place. The letter, which, by the way, is addressed " England, " Australia, " Mr. H. Cronin, " Adelaide," came straight to South Australia, and reads as follows :—" Madrid, October 2nd, 1899. Dear sir—Having very good references of you, I take the liberty to propose to you a business, of which accomplishment depend the future of a poor girl and ours own. The events of the Philippine islands and my high grade in the army have gave me the ways for to get a fortune of 130,000 sterling pounds, which by specially circumstances I had to bury in the environs of that city.

STRAIGHT TALK. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 25 November 1899

STRAIGHT TALK. We Social Democrats are often accused of flattering the working classes. The mistake we make, if mistake it is, is in not flattering them enough. .Nothing pleases them better than to tell them that they are a fine lot of fellows, regular " toffs " ; better off than ever they were before, and so on. I know my own class, and I know that their worst vices are ignorance and the conceit which ignorance breeds. The majority remind me of nothing so much as a drunken man lying in the gutter with a broken head. If you leave him there he may die of exhaustion, cold and exposure, but if you venture to rouse him you will in all probability get abuse and blows for your pains. The drunken man prefers to imagine that he Is softly reclining on a bed of down; it takes a deal of trouble to convince him of the true state of his position. So it is with the majority of the workers. Prove to them to demonstration and with infinite pains that under present circum stances they are being robb...

HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY. THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 16. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 25 November 1899

House of Assembly. THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 16 The Commissioner of Crown Lands told Mr. POYNTON, that the leases for pastora lists would be ready this week. Mr. Catt, in answer to Mr. ROBERTS, said the Public Service Commission had made a progress report on the question of overtime on the railways, and he believed the Minister had given effect to it. They -did not propose to make another progress report this session on the question of the grading of the running men in the railway service. Other matters were being con sidered, and a report would be presented in due time, but it would not be for some months to come. The Attorney-General, to Mr. ROBERTS, said on May 13, 1899—prior to the appoint ment of the Special Board of Enquiry—the -Government commenced Ministerial or de partmental enquiry into the alleged irregu larities in the Police Force. Mr. ROBERTS asked—1. When Mr. R. IBinsley was appointed clerk in the South Australian Railway Service,' was he then the senior employ^ entitled to ...

LABOR MEMBERS IN PARLIAMENT. LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 16. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 25 November 1899

XjABOR members in parliament. Legislative Council. THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 16.

DEATH OF MR. J. HANCOCK, M.P. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 25 November 1899

DEATH OF MR. J. HANCOCK, M.P. There are few trade unionists in South Australia, or indeed any of the adjoining colonies, who are not familiar with the name of John Hancock, and there are thousands who knew him personally. It is with great regret we have to announce that after an illness of several months duration he died on Wednesday last. He leaves a widow and a large family to mourn their loss, and an enormous number of personal friends whom he had attached to himself by his genial manner. As a trades unionist, it is safe to assert that no man in Australia was better or more favorably known. For years he has been the secretary of the Typographical Society of Victoria, and in that position showed a capacity for business and a grasp of detail rarely possessed by one man. As a politician he was a thorough Radical, and had the courage of his opinions which he gave expression to at all times despite the fierce fire of adverse criticism he had frequently to face. As a man he was manly ;...

This and That. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 25 November 1899

This and That. [Bt "Ra. I listened attentively to Mr. Williams on Sunday last when, at the Botanic Park, he acted as the mouthpiece of the Free Trade Association in replying to a previous leeiure by the Hon. Mr. McGregor. Mr. Williams appeared to me to be virulently opposed to protection and to be blind to everything save single tax. Personally, I think we have matters of far more importance to dis cuss than the abstract one of freetrade or protection. I think it was Mr. Ferguson, M.P., of N.S. W., who said that so far as the actual worker was concerned it was only a question as to whether he preferred being boiled alive or roasted alive. But it may be as well to inform Mr. Williams that Ger many is taxing herself to supply England with cheap sugar and that England is pro testing that she would rather be without it and pay a little more for her own. The reason for this is that if she consumes Ger man sugar in preference to her own she will be providing purchasing power for the worke...

THE FIRST OF DECEMBER. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 25 November 1899

THE FIRST OF DECEMBER. The first of December, when it does not fall upon a Sunday, is a day set apart in the province of South Australia for the election of municipal members. How long it will continue to be so is question able, as from a study of the speeches of hon. members in the Legislative Council it will be seen that there is a great desire in some quarters that the elections shall be held on the first Saturday, or some Saturday, so that electors may have the same privilege of voting on that day as is given to them in regard to parliamentary elections. However, this year, no matter what parliament may decree, the elections will be held on December 1, and this being understood it may be well to urge all ratepayers who have the interests of true reform at heart to be up and doing. If success at the polls is to be attained it can only be done by hard work and self-sacrifice, and we urge our readers not to think so much of themselves as of the great cause. The special committee of...

THE FEDERAL PARLIAMENTARY LABOR PARTY. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 25 November 1899

THE FEDERAL PARLIAMENTARY LABOR PARTY. It would be difficult to exaggerate the importance to the workers all over this continent of the intercolonial conference of Labor members suggested to be held shortly after Christmas. Men like Mr. Symon, Q.C., who would fain have us believe that they possess a pocket edition of the British Empire, and that they alone care for " Queen, Empire, and Union Jack," will not like it. Others who have pretended that an underground understanding has already been arrived at by the various Labor Parties in the various colonies will object to it. But it is likely to take place nevertheless, for without it the representatives of the workers cannot possibly draw up a platform acceptable to New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, South Australia, and Tasmania, and probably also Westralia; and the Labor members who are chosen to contest seats in the federal parliament will have to go to their constituents with a programme not sufficiently considered1 by their f...

OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 25 November 1899

OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. (From our Own Correspondent.) The Bakers' Society some time ago determined to hold a series of out-door demonstrations for the purpose of enlist ing the public upon their side. They think that if the claims of the union master bakers are advocated, and the public asked to give their patronage to . those who are paying the minimum wage and giving the eight hours, it will help both. Their second demonstration was held on Saturday, the 18th inst., at Col lingwood. All necessary arrangements were made, and a big turnout was the result. The procession was headed by the Bootmakers' Union band, the society men marching in their white caps and aprons, carrying torches, and turning night into day with colored lights. After traversing over two miles of streets they halted upon a vacant block of land next to the Town Hall, where, from a lorry, Messrs. Barker, Billson, Colchin, and others addressed the meeting. The fol lowing resolution was carried unani mously :—" That th...
