HUMANITARIAN POETS (No. 3). WILL CARELTON. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 16 December 1899

HUMANITARIAN POETS (No. 3). WILL CARELTOK [By "Curlew."] Among the most popular recitations that are given by amateur elocutionists are those that are selected from the works of Will Carelton, one of America's poets. The cause of their popularity is evident to all who possess any knowledge of this poet's works, for standing out clearly and prominently in his poems is his intense humanitarianism. He sings not of dukes, lords, countesses, or even fairy legends, but of the horny-handed sons of toil, and transfers his readers in thought to the experiences of the producer with his joys and pleasures and his work and anxieties upon the wide-reaching plains of America. The fault which one critic found with an early volume of Tennyson's poems— 4 * That there was too much of the draw ing-room about them"—cannot be found with Will Carelton's poems, as he takes us in fancy to the homestead of the back woods' farmer and reveals the lights and shadows of farm life in language simple yet sublime....

THE QUEENSLAND LABOR MINISTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 16 December 1899

THE QUEENSLAND LABOR MINISTRY. After the great maritime strike, when the workers began to understand that their only hope of constitutional reform lay in parliament, and their leaders determined to imitate the tactics of Mr. Parnell, and form in both Houses of Parliament, in all of the Australian colonies, a Labor Party that would vote solidly by majority in caucus, few people thought that within a decade Queensland would see the formation of a Labor Ministry. Nevertheless such has been the case. The Dawson Government lived it is true but for a few days, nevertheless it was born into the world of politics. The Labor Ministers were sworn in, and the following men formed the first Labor Cabinet:—Premier and Chief Secretary, a miner; Home Secretary, a seaman; Minister of Lands and Agriculture, a butcher; Minister of Mines and Public Instruc tion, a seaman; Minister of Railways and Works, a miner; Attorney General, a lawyer. Our enemies may smile because Labor Premier Dawson was defeate...

For not buying the Wifejsome of Myei»s & Co.'S Cork Linoleum op Oilcloth, if you only scrubbed your room once you would quite understand what a tedious and back-aching job it is, and would folly appreciate why the wife wants Cork Linoleum laid on her floors, so that she may be able to do away with the scrubbing-brush entirely.

PROVIDENT SOCIETIES AND INDUSTRIAL WELFARE. ,„Mr" aw.

THE NEW MINISTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 16 December 1899

u THE NEW MINISTRY. The new Ministry, the third in as many weeks, followed the example of its predecessor by stating its policy without asking for the usual adjourn ment. It was recognised in both cases that it was inexpedient at the end of a session to have unnecessary adjourn ments, but in that of the Solomon -combination the haste to get on with, or wipe off the notice-paper, "the business of the country," they com mitted political suicide; whereas the Holder Ministry expresses its policy in a few words through the Attorney General in the Legislative Council, "Go on with the business on the notice-paper." Solomon, in his lack of wisdom, desired to listen to the arguments of members for and against various important measures which had been introduced, and then, during recess, he and his colleagues would consider what action the Govern ment should take—a week-kneed and outrageous policy that no respectable parliament could for a moment tolerate, so at the earliest moment the Minist...

OUR CANADIAN LETTER. THE TAX ON LAND VALUES. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 16 December 1899

OUR CANADIAN LETTER. [From our Own Correspondent.] THE TAX ON LAND VALUES. As this subject is in. practical polities in South Australia, your readers may like to kaow hove single tax progresses here. Well, the single tax movement is inert in this province, and in Canada generally so far as I know; apparently from the im possibility of doing anything in a legislative way so long as our present method of voting exists, and with it the present state of party politics. Much educational work has been done. There is a strong undercurrent of opinion against the taxation of buildings and improvements, and a strong minority would vote in favor of single tax in this city. But the impossibility of accomplishing anything practical in the way of legislation throws a wet blanket over all propaganda. There is a point up to which the enthusiasm of a new cause wiil carry educative effort, whether any realization is in sight or not, but after that point is reached the movement must lag unless there i...

HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY. TUESDAY, DECEMBER 12. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 16 December 1899

House of Assembly. TCTSSDAY, DECEMBER 12. The Premier expounded the policy of the new Government at length, Mr. Solomon vainly " kicked against the pricks," and Mr. Glynn complimented the Labor Party on "sticking to their guns up to the present." The Commissioner of Public Works told Mr. HUTCHISON that he would see that watertaps were provided at the West Terrace Cemetery between the gates and the Catholic portion of the burial ground. The Treasurer, in reply to the same mem ber, said that the police had - no statutory rights to boards of enquiry, but as all other civil servants on the fixed list enjoyed that privilege the Government thought it only right to extend it to the suspended detec tives, upon whom certain reflections were cast by the late Board of Enquiry. The board would be appointed this week, and the detectives would have an opportunity of cross-examining any of the witnesses who gave evidence against them. No legal assistance would be allowed. A solicitor would not be ...

LABOR MEMBERS IN PARLIAMENT. LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. TUESDAY, DECEMBER 12. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 16 December 1899

LABOR MEMBERS IN PARLIAMENT. Legislative Council. TUESDAY, DECEMBER 12. Our Labor members had perforce to adopt a listening attitude while the Attorney General was announcing the policy of the newly-formed Holder Administration, and took no share for the time being in its subsequent criticism. Mr. GUTHRIE secured the debate on the second reading of the Workmen's Compen sation'Bill until next day. The second reading; of the Land Values Assessment Bill was carried and the Bill was passed through its committee shape, and the Council adjourned. WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 13. The early part of the afternoon was taken up by an erratic speech from Mr. Ward, in the course of which he, as usual, was called to order by the President. The so-called speech was chiefly noticeable because of his frequent allusions to the policy and actions of the Labor Party anjl the display of his profound ignorance - of the subject upon which he was enlarging. On the Labor members interjecting he appealed most patheti...

THE JUDGMENT ON SOLOMON. Life's a jest, And all things show it; I thought so once, And now I know it. —OLD EPITAPH. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 16 December 1899

THE JUDGMENT ON SOLOMON. Life's a jest, And all things show it; I thought so once, And now I know it. —Old Epitaph. to the editor. Sir—Oh, dear ! Oh, dear J My sides are aching from laughter. For once Mr. Solomon is right. His life as Premier was short and merry—the shortest and funniest on record ; only seven days from start to finish, from entrance to exit. Merry indeed ! He puts it too mildly. His whole Ministerial exis tence was a howling farce. How he must have enjoyed it! Who but he in sueh a*" brief span of life could have expounded two policies—one for each House? And such policies! Who ever saw such food for mirth ? On various measures members were to be " afforded an opportunity for debate," so that Ministers might steal their brains and ruminate over the results in recess. Minis ters had no policy on any particular subject, or if they had in one House they had none or a different one in the other. A £20 household franchise was to be proposed* but not just now, and if alte...

To Correspondents. "Billy Khan," Wallaroo Mines.— Thanks for your cleverly-written letter. It is to the same purport as many others we have received, and the spirit of all of them is the same, as well as in thorough accord with the opinions we have expressed in our columns as to the action of the gentleman referred to. But we hope you will agree with us, that now the incident is over, although by no means forgotten, it would be both unwise and unkind to " keep the sore open " Let up hope on the contrary that it will be soon completely healed. Signs are not wanting that increased ex perience will bring along with it better sense and a greater respect for the solidarity you speak of.

DRUNKENNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 16 December 1899

DRUNKENNESS. At what ages do people get drunk ? An English compiler takes the arrests for 1897 and tells us something on the subject. From him it would appear that the total number of persons proceeded against on the drunkenness charge during the year named was 193,276 and as the figure for 1896 was 187,258; the dear old mother land does not seem to be mending her ways. Now, as to the ages of the bibulous persons. . We read :— No record is kept of the ages of those proceeded against by way of summons, but of the 168,398 persons who were convicted, 110,739 were taken in charge, and the ages of these being given enabled the following statement to be made out. There were no convictions under 12 :— Male.
