A Shameful Case. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 6 September 1895

A Shameful Case. A case lias occurred in Birmingham (says the Labor Leader) harsh, enough to make us despair of humanity. Margaret Wright, a widow, was sum moned for not sending her child, aged eleven years, to school. The woman has four children. She has to be at work at 8 a.m., and so cannot see her children off to school. The children have to look after themselves, with the result that the eldest plays the truant. The mother for wages gets seven shillings per week, which is augmented by three shillings from the parish. The rent is three shillings per week, leaving five persons to live on seven shillings a week. The poor woman, undefended, was fined ten shillings, or fourteen days* " hard labor," and, being penniless, was removed heart broken to the cell. Next morning a missionary who happened to be In court visited the " home," and found the four poor mites in bed in the deserted house, without a scrap of food. He then returned and paid the fine, and so re stored the mother to he...

Eight Hours' Day. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 6 September 1895

Eight Hours* Day. It was most unfortuiiate for the Eight Hours' Union that the usual date for holding their demonstration fell this year on Sunday, and that in consequence the carnival of labor had to be held on the following day. Sunday was a perfect Spring day, bright, cool, and in every way enjoyable, but everyone connected with the Eight Hours' festival read on Saturday with a good deal of apprehension the ominous statement of Sir Charles Todd that a storm was rapidly approaching from the west. Monday opened gloomily, and it was feared that before the grand procession had finished its course rain would have fallen. No one, however, appeared to realise that instead of rain the city was in the course of an hour or two to be enveloped in one of. the most distressing duststorms experienced for many years, and that the pleasure of the occasion was to be so completely marred by this cause as subsequently proved to be the case. As the hour for assembling approached the fact that the da...

A Minimum Wage. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 6 September 1895

A Minimum Wage. Says Michael Davitt i—" I am thoroughly iu favor of the minimum wage, and you will be interested to know, and I am sure you must already be aware of the fact, that the strongest advocate of the minimum wage is His Holiness the Pope. The unfair distribution of the wealth which labor, land, and capitalism combined produces from year to year in Great Britain shows the great injustice done to the first and the greatest of these factors, labor, for while capitalism, in cluding interest and superintendence, walks off with about £500,000,000.worth of this wealth—while landlordism in agricultural rents, in ground rents, and in mineral royalties obtains some £250,000.000 of this • wealth; the 25,000,000 of wage-earners in Great Britain, without whose labor none of it could be produced, received between them only about one-half of the whole. It is, therefore, manifestly a question not only of justice, but of morality, to see that the principle of the minimum wage should obtain...

The Risks (?) of Capital. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 6 September 1895

The Risks (?) of Capital. We are continually being told that the big dividends, interest, and profits on many capitalistic ventures are only fair recompense for the " risk" run by capital from non-paying speculations, accidental losses, etc. These i>ame gentlemen, how ever, quite ignore the " risk of labor," and would stare aghast at the impudence of the men who asked for a sufficiently high wage to cover his risks. Here are a few facts concering the goldmining industry in the sister colony of Victoria. Out of 27 Branches in the A.M.A. of Victoria, 18 Branches total a membership of 5,799, of which. 1,675 were injured more or less seriously, and some fatally, during the year ending December 31,1894. In six of the other nine Branches which do not give their membership, 557 accidents took place in the same period. Adding a proportionate number to the total membership, we find that out of less'than 8,000 miners, 2,232 were injured in one year, 28 being killed outright and 76 others v...

Is this True? [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 6 September 1895

Is this True ? An American paper, The People, gires the following, as the opinion of a large manufacturer as to the labor people of that country. South Australian workers should read the accusation and see whether it applies to them :—" A willing slave is no more willing to have the shackels struck from his limbs than the working people are to lift a hand in .be half of their rights. Some of their leaders howl and try to arouse them. It's all wind. Nothing will come of it. One half deride the rest, and hence will remain helpless. Look-at their votes; that tells the tale. They want masters; they do not desire to, -be- free. All we have to do is to snule^zfoiie and kick the other. The fact of the matter is, they think they are helpless. It is bur duty to make them believe it. An empty stomach, and naked back, is our argu ment. This is all we . need in order, to remain masters. With all their growling during the secret meetings, next day they are first to discredit their leaders, who w...

FOOTBALL. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 6 September 1895

FOOTBALL. Sep. 7. Adelaide Oval—Norwood v. North Adelaide. Alberton Oval—Port Adelaide v. Natives. The racing on the opening day of the S.A. J.C. Spring Mteeting (Monday last) was of a high order. Although the weather was dull, the attendance was very satisfactory, the enclosures being crowded. The totali zator carried £11,05S for the day, against £ 1G,SS5 10s. last year. Mr. David James's filly Auraria easily won the South Australian Derby in the capital time of 1 min. 43i sec. She has now undoubtedly proved herself the best three year-old in the colony, and fit and well will win the V.R.C. Derby for her straight-going owner. The Harvester's Derby (V.R.C.) took 2 min. 40i sec., Bonnie Scotland's Derby (A.J.C.) took2min. 44sec. Grand Flaneur, Nordenfeldt, Ensign, and The Admiral all took a longer time than Auraria to accom plish the mile and a half, and disparagers of Trenton's brilliant daughter should bear this in mind. Princess of Wales ran a inuch-ini proved filly in the Morphet...

Sweating in Melbourne. SOME TYPICAL CASES. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 6 September 1895

! Sweating ia Melbourne. SOME TYPICAi CASES. The subject of " sweating" in tlie various trades is again coming- promi nently before the public of Victoria. The following are a few of the well authenticated facts which the Melbourne Herald thinks should bring the question well home to the people:— In the clothing trade girls and women are making vests throughout, buttonholes included, for some houses at 6d. each. Another firm pays 4§d., without button holes. Usual trade price, 3s. for the com plete work. A skilful and experienced tailoress told a Herald representative the other day that at 6d. per vest, without button holes, she could earn 9s. per week by working full twelve hours a day, and only stopping for a few minutes to eat a bit of bread and drink a cup of tea. JNo time to waste in preparing meals. Consequently, at 4|d. per vest, without buttonholes, a skilled tailoress could earn 6s. 9d. per week of 72 hours, under the same conditions. Making pockets in fustian trousers, doub...

Gleanings. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 6 September 1895

Gleanings. TfiotrBtBs, like babies, grow large by nursing. Evebt age has its problem, by solving which, humanity is helped forward.— Seine. Every man has in himself a continent of undiscovered character. Happy is he who acts the Columbus to his own soul. The sale of alcoholic beverages is con trolled by the Swiss Government. Last year it made over 1,000,000 dols. by this monopoly. To live a man must either wort, beg, or steal; and the fun of it is that those who neither work nor beg mostly fare the best. Of all the thousand enemies that lie ambushed along the journey of human life, there is not one that does not shrink and cower before a clear intellect, a potent will, and an honest intent. The man who does the work seldom gets rich. It is the man who forestalls his fellows and jumps their claims who becomes the millionaire, by mairing them work for him. A selfish man not only defrauds society of its due, and so becomes an enemy of his country, but that he also cheats himself out of...

Democratic Societies. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 6 September 1895

Democratic Societies. The Democratic Club.—There was a crowded attendance at the Democratic Club on Sunday evening, including visiting legislators from Victoria and New South Wales, the lecturer being Mr. W. A. Tren with, M.L.A., the leader of the Labor Party in the Victorian Assembly. The Hon. G. McGregor, President of the Club, occupied the chair. Mr. Trenwith's subject was " Some Political Necessities of the Times." In the course of a vigorous and able speech he traced the history of the evils which at present afflicted society, re ferring to the condition of the masses, which had given rise to the Bread Riots in Hungary and Coxey's Army in America, and described the condition of the people in England and France, showing that similar conditions were not wanting even in Aus tralia. They should strive to bring about such a condition of things as would render it impossible for earnest willing workers to starve, by introducing legislation in "the direction of State Socialism. Several...

The Petersburg Branch wrote, stating that twenty-four members had joined at the last meeting of that branch, and it -was expected that a large number would be proposed for membership at liext meeting. The branch also informed the Council that Mr. Good ridge, Yiee-President, who was leaving the district, had resigned, and that Mr. Stead man had been elected in his place. Terowie Branch wrote, informing the Council that owing to removals, the result of the Com missioner deciding to have the transferring of goods done by contract instead of by the department, they had lost a number of their members. Thanks were expressed to the Chairman and Secretary, Messrs. Batchelor and Adams, for their efforts to have the work of transferring goods continued by the department.

Current Topics. Political Meeting at Gladstone.—A correspondent sends the following :—" As has lately been the practice in other dis tricts the members for Gladstone have been addressing their constituents. A good re ception was accorded them in the Town Hall, Laura, on Friday evening last. The Hon. A. Catt, who is now regarded as our Liberal .member, spoke at length on the State Advances Bill, to which,, according to Mr. Howe, lie bears some material relation. Mr. Howe also spoke on this and other subjects, stating his intention to amend and liberalize the Bill in Committee. He strongly opposed the proposed New Zealand treaty, and warned his audience of the 'State Socialism that was rampant in many parts of the country.' No questions were invited. Votes of thanks-to the mem bers and the Chairman closed a very orderly meeting." Baro?sa Political Reform League.— A correspondent writing from Williams town on Saturday last says:—" Mr. E. H.

LABOR LEGISLATORS. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 6 September 1895

LABOR LEGISLATORS. The Hon. C. C. Kingston paid a graceful and well-deserved IrHiute to the Labor Party when speaking at the Eight Hours' Demonstration on Monday. He said " he would be ingrate indeed if he did not recognise with gratitude the serrices and honest work done by the Labor Party. Industrious and intelligent, never wasting their time on aught but the business of the country, devoting their best energies to the practical matters of the State, the Labor Party undoubtedly afforded a striking example to other sections of the House." It may be said that this was merely an empty compli ment, inspired by the occasion, but fortunately the history of the Labor Party affords ample confirmation of the truth of every word of the Premier's eulogiuin. From their first entrance into politics they have set an example of conscientious attention to duty that is worthy of all praise. This example has galvanized other sections of the House into something like active life, and indeed has call...

Passing Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 6 September 1895

Passing Notes. [By Tempcs,] I AM strongly disposed to risk the frowns of Mrs. Grundy and write upon a subject which Is none the less important because it is not perfumed with ottar of roses. Mon day's Register supplied us with the informa tion that the shamefully mutilated body of a woman bad been found packed in a box and deposited in a populous S37dney suburb. The indications pointed to the work of a colonial "Jack the Ripper," and proof was abundant that the hand of the murderer was accustomed to his devilish work, but beyond this nothing was known. * # # # Tuesday's papers supplied the key to the mystery, and the sickening details shed such a lurid light upon one important phase of our social system that to keep silence would be to invite the very stones to cry out. The unfortunate victim was not a prostitute ; if she had been she still would have been human; her initial mistake had been that of thousands of her sex in every class of society. She had permitted her sexual instinc...
