GOVERNMENT FOR THE PEOPLE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 13 September 1895

GOVERNMENT FOR THE PEOPLE. TO THE EDITOR. Sic—Labor is derogatory, labor is low ; to escape from the law of labor which every man is bora under is the sine qua, non of a man's intelligence; to live not on his own labor, but on the labor of others, is the par excellence of human wisdom. To leave to a favored few the exceptional advantages of acquiring the national land of the people, the means of production, and the wealth emanating from the joint labor of the working portion of the community, is the ultraism of the old school of beneficent statesmanship; so, like a savage, each man daubs on his warpaint, and enters the arena of life's battlefield fighting for his own hand, and the result is that in a community of one hundred we have one hundred antagonistic elements, with its natural waste of energy, talent, and useful ness, each striving to encompass the ruin - and the enslavement of his fellow. Such, Mr. Editor, is the outcome of the boasted intelligence of this the nineteenth cen...

HENRY TAYLOR AND THE UNITED LABOR PARTY'S POLICY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 13 September 1895

HENRY TAYLOR AND THE UNITED LABOR PARTY'S POLICY. TO THE EDITOR. "Sir — The letter forwarded to Mr. Batchelor, as Secretary of the United Labor Party, by Mr. fl. Taylor is a gem indeed. This apostle of freedom declines tq accept1 the risks attached to those who are to be : ballotted for by the -United Labor Party, and while trying to cover an ignominious retreat does not hesitate to try and stamp the Party and their thousands of supporters both in to\yn and country as meq and women approving injustice. Possibly it may be a case of "the grapes are sour," but in all charity let us accept Mr. Taylor's statement of his reasons for declining as correct. Now, Sir, this advocate of equal liberty, this opponent of all- restrictions, this supporter of just measures applicable to all, I had a chat with not long since, and during our conversation of course the single tax was introduced and debated. The policy of the Labor Party was also discussed and the chances of the democrats at the next el...

The Waste of Wealth. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 13 September 1895

The Waste of Wealth. An American, the son of an American millionaire and politician and a young man of 30 gave on August 1 a farewell dinner to his Paris friends in a fashion able restaurant of the Bois de Boulogne. One of the primary objects of this entertainment was to show that money was no object to the host. There were 22 guests. Each one was supplied by the host with a private coupe and pair to drive to the Bois and back. The dining room was decorated with flowers out of season, and luminous fountains playing upon large rocks of ice kept the air cool. The dinner, or rather gorge, showed splendid disregard of cost. There was none of the meanness of Europeans, who are not ashamed, even when wealthy, to make a dish do duty for a whole party. Each guest had before him a whole leg of mutton, a whole salmon, a truffled fowl, a basket of peaches, and a double magnum of champagne, besides bottles of fine wines. At dessert a bag was passed round, from which eacli guest was asked to dra...

FARMERS' UNIONS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 13 September 1895

FARMERS' UNIONS. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—Evidently the farmers have at last aroused from their apathy as to their rights, financially as well as politically, and are, I am pleased to see, starting unions respecting the disposal of their produce, thereby saving the many profits that go into the pockets of the non-producer, the middleman, besides accumulating large assets in the "way of stores, mills, ships, &c., which should be the property of the farmers, who are justly entitled to those assets as they are the pro ducers of the wealth that erected and built them. I would like to ask, in the name of common fairness, who is entitled to the wealth only those that create it ? It is an ad mitted fact that in the past the farmers have not received the results of their labor, which J contend they should receive, and they would have received them provided their produce had iu the past gone straight from them to the consumer, which would have saved the pickings of the middleman and his ri...

Dave Hargrave's Mission. CHAPTER XXIII.—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 13 September 1895

Dave Hargrave's Mission. [by Harry J. White.] CHAPTER XXIII.—Continued. Then we say again, no wonder it was a busy day. But what was the meaning of it fill? Why, it was the out-burst of a generous heart in gratitude for the pardon which had been received by his dear son Frank. His boy was a free man. There was a. great meeting of old friends and acquaintances, too. There was Mr. Winsome, who, at Ope's earnest solicita tions, had found time to run down from the city house; and then there was honest, rough, old Elias Smoker, of the schooner Waternymph, besides Dave and Bupert .Hargrave, and the prime mover, old Ope himself; and what a time they did have, to be sure, watching the differ ent phases of the charitable side of the poor of Newport. Then they all sat in council and finally agreed that Captain Elias Smoker was to bring Frank home in his beautiful little craft via Australia; Dare's sister, too, if she would come. It had been arranged so baeause Frank Ope, for some reason or an...

One lovely morning, about a week after the "Ope festival," Dave might have been observed walling along the lumber strewn quays of the London Docks, intently regarding the long tiers of ship ping which lay in the stream and at the wharfs. Evidently he was seeking for some particular vessel. - At last he stopped, and his face lit up with a gleam of pleasure. There was no mistaking the trim and handsome little craft oppo site to which he ceased his peregrinations. As neat as ever, and not a trace of the rough usage she had experienced at the hands of old father Neptune. All was bustle about her, everybody was busy getting in stores —but for a different mission than ...

Passing Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 20 September 1895

Passing Notes. [By Tempus.] How delightfully consistent was the regret expressed by Mr. Gilbert, at the great corroboree of the National Ass. the other evening that the whole population of the colony could not be present to listen to the braying of himself and fellow-plutocrats, when it was deliberately decided to exclude every one whom the League thought did not agree with them. This is a sample of the innocent simplicity and the transparent consistency of this highly moral organisa tion. Other samples of the same sort were scattered plentifully throughoutthe speeches, andformed adelicious repast for the followers of the League. * * # * The Chairman, too, was equally consistent when he said of the Labor members that he acknowledged their " intelligence, industry, and fairness," and straightway exhorted his hearers to be on the alert lest these in telligent, industrious, and fair men should be allowed to rule ! Now, if these Labor members are what Mr. Duncan says they are, what can ...

Sir John Downer, who is fairly on the stump in opposition to the State Advances Bill, addressed a meeting at Mount Barker on Monday evening, but did not have a large audience. It is a fair criterion of public feeling with regard to the Bill that its advo cates are always warmly received by crowded audiences, while even the eloquent knight of Barossa is unable to draw a crowd in opposition. The S.A.N.R. Association annual rifle matches are now progressing at the Port, but they do not appear to attract so large a share of public attention as was the case a few years ago.

THE PASTORAL BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 20 September 1895

THE PASTOBAL BILL. The Hon. J. J. Duncan lias in the Council succeeded in adding to tlie Pas toral Bill a clause which though exceed ingly plausible in appearance may be very dangerous when. carried into prac tice. It provides that the outgoing lessee of Class I. country shall have power to receive from the incoming lessee the value of all improvements made during the currency of his lease, and that the Government shall be relieved from all liability for payment for water improve ments made in Class I. country. This looks on the surface like a concession to the Government, but really it gives an enormous power to the present lessee, and may have the effect of practically locking up the land indefinitely. The class of country to which it refers will almost certainly be required for subdi vision for the purpose of allowing farmers in the outlying districts to obtain a block for grazing purposes, thus enabling them to combine grazing with agriculture, which experience shows to be absol...

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE: SEPTEMBER 20,1895. "NATIONAL" HUMBUGS. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 20 September 1895

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE : SEPTEMBER 20,1895. "NATIONAL" HUMBUGS. ^The National Defence League has held its annual demonstration, and its leading lights have liad the opportunity of relieving themselves of their pent-up ardor for the well-being of the colony and its people. The report submitted to the meeting on Friday was of but little interest outside the select circle for whom it was prepared, and as portions of it have been suppressed from publication, it is necessary to deal with the colorless remnant. The principal interest lies in the speeches which followed, and in these the maze of fallacies, contradictions, and inconsistencies is so intricate that it is extremely difficult to unravel the tangled skein and reveal the true position. At the outset the Chairman asserted that the League had been misrepresented as having opposed the Women's Franchise Act, and declared that as a body they had deliberately made the question an open one. This is the way this precious organizatio...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. We shall be glad to receive from secre taries of democratic and Liberal organisa tions in all parts of the colony brief reports of progress, either for our own information or for publication, as we may think desir able. All communications, whether in the form of reports or of letters for our open columns, should be brief and pointed, and must be verified by the name and address of the writer. Letters intended for publica tion in the People's Column must reach this office not later than Tuesday. " A Wellwisher."—The Labor Party are doing all that yon suggest they should do, but they wisely see that it is folly to attempt impossibilities, and they therefore aim at accomplishing those reforms that are prac ticable rather than attempt what must at present at least end in failure. Active earnest support on your part will do more good than fault-finding.

The Power of Wealth in Elections. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 20 September 1895

The Power of Wealth in Elections. When Lord Salisbury, in a recent i speech, declared that the capitalists of this country were waiting to rid them selves of a Liberal Government before they offered employment to the un employed, the Liberal journals, of course, derided such a piece of palpable claptrap. But claptrap though it was—dishonest, disgraceful claptrap—Lord Salisbury knew what he was talking about, and that his words would go home to a large number of stupid and thoughtless people, who bow in abject submission before the rich. As filings are in this country— where the many possess little and are compelled to look to the few rich for tlie means of living—it is evident that the. few possess an e/wrmous power, for they have a lien over the services and means of livelihood of those dependent on wages. We are convinced that this power has been wielded with enormous effect in the elections now drawing to a close, and that, whatever other causes may have operated in favor of Tory...
