The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE: NOVEMBER 9, 1894. BAD TIMES, THEIR CAUSE AND REMEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 9 November 1894

The Weekly Herald.! ADELAIDE : NOVEMBER 9, 1894. BAD TIMES, THEIR CAUSE AND REMEDY. According to recent utterances in high places the present bad times are attributable to the scarcity of money and the dishonesty of individual and associated finaucial institutions. Leaving- out the latter factor of uni versal depression, let us turn for a moment to the former. Scarcity of money! In its leading columns a short time ago Lloyd's declared that it was reported on good authority that nearly half the gold in the world was locked up in the Bank of England's treasury vaults. At first this statement appears to savor a little of the romancing order, but following up figures, and considering the reputation of the source from which the knowledge is derived, the truth becomes apparent that at least an enormous bulk of the world's money exchange lies practically locked up iu the great metropolitan financial institution. Such informa tion as this tends to take one's breath away, for it need hardly ...

Local News. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 9 November 1894

Local News. "Waiting for Christ to come," witli their hands folded, is what some Christian people are doing just now. They see signs abroad that convince them the last days are on us, consequently they must be ready. Very good resolve to be ready; but have they ever thought about the work which is to be done of a philanthropic and Christ like nature. If they have not, the sooner they begin to think about it and act the better. One thiug is certain enough, the Christ of every Christian will not be pleased to find his servants idle when work of the most important kind is waiting to be done. Honor to whom honor is due. To judge by reports in the press, Commander Cres well is the one to whom credit is due for bringing to light the disgraceful state of affairs existing in our lifeboat service. As a matter of fact, our sailor member, " Bob Guthrie," is the one to whom praise should be given, for lie alone is the man who has caused to be known the utter unsea worthiness of South Australian...

Editorial Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 9 November 1894

Editorial Notes. At present we lack capital in every j enterprise, and for the lack of that capital labor remains idle and the fruits ; of the earth, including all kinds of raw j produce for manufacturing purposes, are j not called forth. Monopoly has become : so exhorbitant in its demands for profit j that the use of money can only be J obtained at the expense of the continual sacrifice of the worker. In fact, there seems to be no linjit to the lust of monopoly, and it undoubtedly is the continuous demand for more, and yet more, that brings about the deadlock between labor and capital. Bad times. Of course we have had bad times, and shall continue to have them until a moral or more violent revolution takes place. At present our markets may be overflowing with grain, tea, sugar, and all kinds of produce, but unless the consumer has money to buy with, the stores must remain in bond, and the people go short. # * # * It is true the capitalist may buy a ship load of tea, or stack of whe...

SHORTER HOURS, NOT LONGER. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 9 November 1894

SHORTER HOURS, NOT LONGER. Tom Mann, speaking a few days ago on the unemployed, said " For many years, iu London alone, there has been, a vast band of some 100,000 men out of work ; including women and children, that means about half a million people. Now, I am a member of the Amalgamated Society of Engineers, one of the largest and strongest Trade Unions in tbe world. Here is its monthly report. 'There are some figures for you,' said the Secretary of the I.L.P., turning over its leaves. ' The society numbers 75,000 members. Of these, last nnnth 6,600 received out-of-work pay, not including the sick or superannuated. If these are in cluded, 11,000 men were on the funds. Now, what does that mean ? Simply that those who are in work must keep those who are unemployed. Every member of my society had in 1860 to pay 7s. 6d. per annum to keep men out of work. In 18S0 each member had £1 7s. 9d. to pay; in 1S92, £1 12s. 10Jd. A few years ago we thought these heavy payments were exceptional; ...

THE RESULT OF A STRIKE. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 9 November 1894

THE RESULT OF A STRIKE. Mv. Altgeld, the Governor, has issued a proclamation to tlie people of Illinois, asking them to contribute to the relief of the starving strikers in the town of Pullman, which he visited recently. The Governor says that over a . thousand families, or six thousand persons, four-fifths of whom are women and children, are utterly destitute. Nearly all the fanner employes of the Pull man company living in the town have been supported by charity during the last three months, but the Relief Society is now unable to get supplies. Governor Altgeld previously wrote letters appealing to Mr. Pullmaii, saying :—" It seems to me that your Company cannot afford to have me appealing to the charity of the State to save the lives of your old employes." Mr. Pull man, however, in reply, said " the old Jien refused to return to work when invited to do so, and their places have been filled by new meu, sufficient for all the work in hand." Mr. Altgeld thereupon replied, " I see th...

Under the Crusher. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 9 November 1894

Under the Crusher. The Banks aud other financial institutions own 130,79S,677 acres of Queensland for which they pay only about Jd. an acre. Forty-one families own at least one-fifth of freehold land in South Australia. When last heard of the little North Shore (Sydney) to Hornsby Railway had cost £298,000 for consti'uction and au airy trifle £'281,000, fov land resumptions. The line has probably improved the adjacent pro perty to the extent of fully £300,000, if not more, and under au efficient land value tax the whole of the aforesaid £281,000 should have been saved. Yet the North Shore line is not an unusual swindle in any sense—it is only a plain, ordinary swindle, and is pro bably, if anything, rather more usual than the average. —Richmond Gazette. There are 2,000,000, acres of land in Scotland laid out in deer forests, for the sport of those who have nothing else to do but spend the money tliat other people have earned. Twenty-one families own 2,4S5,169 acres of Victorian soil...

A LAY SERMON. [BY ONE OF THE PEOPLE.] [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 9 November 1894

A LAY SERMON. [By One of the People.] We are always heariug complaints that the Church is gradually becoming divorced from the people. The fears of eminent luminaries of light and learning that the growing tendency of men to care for the good things of this world is fast depriving them of the possibilities of attaining happi ness in the world to come, are continually reiterated again and again from the pulpit and the rostrum. The warnings of these very good and learne.l men, when viewed by the ordinary individual who does not stop to think for himself, are accepted in that placid spirit of obedience which from time immemorial has always been taught by the Church. But what common sense is there in teach ing that heaven is of necessity something entirely separate from this life? Such teachings were never diffused by the Great Master Himself. No college training or examination in theology is necessary to grasp the meaning of the simple teaching of the lowly Nazareue :—"Seek ye first th...

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 9 November 1894

TO THE EDITOR. Sir—Re letter signed " M.," I have felt impelled to reply to the same, being a member of the engineering profession of long standing who is thoroughly acquainted with the state of afiairs as regards the subject matter of the letter in question. There is undoubtedly an evil existing which permeates the whole of the depart ment responsible for the engineering of the lines, but it is not anything like that imagined by "M.," who is in error as regards many of his statements. The interests of the engineering profession are entirely opposed to such an organisation as that of the present engineering staff of the Railway Department. Again, we are not paying £10,000 per annum for the present Resident Engineers, &c. According tc a return (No. 148/93) laid before Parliament in November, 1S93, £6,900 is the total for the engineers, their assistants, and the clerical staff, including all allowances, &c., and no material alteration has occurred since that date.

People's Column. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 9 November 1894

People's Column. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—My only excuse for sending you these few lines is that in your widely circulated paper amongst the very people we wish to .meet, some may be induced to remember the lot of the shop assistants, and cease to do evil and learn to do the right thing by shopping before six. The assistant behind the counter is differently situated to most other toilers, because he has to do directly with the general public, and if the great mass would consider for a moment, and complete their purchases early, shops would close earlier, and consequently the hours of labour in retail establishments would be very materially reduced. There is 110 necessity for shopping late. If people would only realize that there is a positive loss to them selves in buying under the gaslight perhaps they would then discontinue this pernicious habit, for after all it is only habit that has grown out of an old-time custom, when wages were always paid late on a Saturday, and wives were compel...

ITEMS FROM DIFFERENT SOURCES. WHY THE RODONDO WENT DOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 9 November 1894

ITEMS FROM DIFFERENT SOURCES. WirY the Rodondo West Dow Scene. — A "furnished room;" shirts littered about in various stages of comple tion ; two girls working away for dear life at machines; a needle snaps. First Girl—Curse these shirts ! That's the third needle to-day. Second Girl—What's the use of swearing. I believe it was the way you cursed that order for Coolgardie that made the Iiodondo sink. First Girl—Very well, I got uiy wish then, and I hope every man who wears one of these shirts will have bad luck, and get hung. The girl struck wide and missed what she intended to hit, viz., the middle man, not the working man. It is a strange coincidence, when one comes to think it out, that hun dreds of girls and women are being crushed to death in the sweating mills making shirts for 3d, or 3Jd. each for which their equally crushed brothers in mines aud workshops are made to pay 3s., or even 4s. each. There's a big slice out of the centre of the loaf, and who eats it ? The middle man...

Odds and Ends. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 9 November 1894

Odds and Ends. Says Reynolds:—"Astor, the American millionaire, who thought his money would make him an aristocrat in this country, is much to be pitied. He has engaged on his newspapers and magaziues here a number of the impecunious sprigs of the nobility, with the view of making the acquaintance of their families, and thus secure an entree into society. But these youths, who are not even called upon to do any journalistic work, take their salaries and laugh at the tuft-hunter. Astor is an absentee landlord. Nearly all the population of Manhattan Island pay him rent for the privilege of living there, but he spends the money in this country. His tenants are holding meetings in order to call the attention of Congress to the question of absentee land lordism, as exhibited in the person of poor, hunted, and despised Astor. " Populism will drive capital out of the country." Very well; let it go. Labour will remain, aud labour is the creator of capital, and when it has do use for the mon...

TO THE EDITOR. Sir—I am very pleased to see tliat the sale of the Weekly Herald still continues to increase. About a couple of weeks back I was afraid it was going to be the other way about, and that is why I sent you the sug gestion for making it pay in my last, viz., to use as a last resort. I must say that I think you are quite right about its being rather ponderous to operate ; but in regard to what you say, "If the Herald goes under, with such a following as it has, it deserves to," I must say that I hold quite a different view. Did the Voice deserve to go under ? Most decidedly not. Yet it had to succumb, owing to financial difficulties. Aye, and with almost the same readers and supporters that tbe Herald has. Then, again, you say "the Herald's strength lies in its present price." Now, I do not wish to bother you with any unnecessary words, but will remind you that in some parts of the paper you demonstrate the fact that one of the chief supports to a paper accrues to it from ...

TO THE EDITOR. Sir — Co-operatiou as a remedy for " sweating" has much to recommend it, but it is not wide enough to cover the whole -question, and still leaves it possible for the I factory owner to step in with his pruning I knife of profit. Some of us, who know where this knife cuts sharpest, think that a minimum rate of wage to be paid to the actual worker should be fixed by Govern ment, and any factory, or intermediary person, found giving out work below sucli rate to be heavily fined. Against this the democratic party will doubtless cry, " We don't want the Government to fix wages, we want to fix them ourselves." Quite right, too; but alas ! the democratic millenium exists but in the future, and in the mean time workers are being done to death ty the inhuman system that prevails, which the Government existing in the present could prevent if it would. Let us, then, have half a loaf of justice; it will help to keen us alive till the new order arises to give us a ivliole one. -I ...

The former would like to see mortgages exempted, and the latter at any cost would like to see the Bill thrown out.
