Sport and Pastime. CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 October 1894

Sport and Pastime. [Br Toko.] CRICKET. The annual meeting of the South Aus tralian Cricketing Association was held on Monday evening in the Banqueting-room of the Town Hall, Sir E. T. Smith in the chair. The cricket season of 1893-4 on the whole has been a successful one, and the committee believe that the visit of Mr. Stoddart's team will give a great impetus to the game in the coming season. The erection of a press-box is now a certainty, and many other neces- ! sary improvements will be noticed when i the ground is opened to the clubs for | practice. In Sydney last Saturday Garrett, playing for University v. Sydney, made 68 before Turner bowled him. The latter took 5 wickets for 42 runs. In Melbourne in the match South Mel bourne v. Williamstown Harry Trott scored 119, helping to bring up the total to 396 for his side. Williamstown could only respond with 97. I am indebted to " Batsmau," of the Sportsman, for the following :—" I dropped across Jim Phillips in the M.C.C. office la...

£300 NOT WORTH A PENNY. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 October 1894

£300 NOT WORTH A PENNY. To the man who has put all his eggs into one basket, the breaking of the bank is like the crack of doom. Here is a good story concerning a depositor in the now* defunct Metropolitan Bank of Melbourne. He had heard rumours of the approaching collapse, and fled into the city to withdraw his deposit of £300. The teller met him with an affable smile, and paid him in the bank's own one-pound notes. If he had asked for gold the establishment would have closed there and then. As it was he went on his way rejoicing. He had got about two miles on his way home when the horrible thought occurred to him that if the Metropolitan burst the Metropolitan notes were just as valuable as brown wrapping-paper. There was no time to get back before closing time, so he rushed to the nearest branch bank and tried to open an account with the alleged assets; but the branch blankly refused them, and he was left standing in the street with £300 worth of valueless notes in his palsied ha...

Miscellanea. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 October 1894

r Miscellanea. If ministers of "religion would bare the great body of workers believe in them, they must demonstrate 'that they take a little more interest " in the problems that affect their social and industrial welfare. With all the powers of production which South Australia possesses, the wonder is that there is so much poverty. Let those who are bewailing the fate of the Voice comfort themselves with the thought that Medway Day still lives, and Is carrying on his work as actively as> ever in another colony. Send in your sporting fixtures and news, and don't forget the ads. Let every one who calls himself a demo crat support those who support the Heralds advertising columns. Banks have demonstrated pretty clearly of late that in the interest of the people a State Bank is absolutely necessary. The land and labor questions are in separably bound together. No "drunks" reported in the Herald— at any rate until the law allows us to expose the "cause" as well as the effect. It is e...

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE: OCTOBER 12, 1894. THE ADDDITIOUAL TAXATION PROPOSALS. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 October 1894

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE : OCTOBER 12, 1894. THE ADDDITIOUAL TAXATION PROPOSALS. Taking everything into consideration —and that means a great deal at this particular time of rabid class opposi tion in political circles—it may be said with a reasonable show of truth, that the Government have exercised a decent spirit of fairness in their new taxation proposals. Certainly it would have been more pleasing to have had to chronicle the taking off some of the burdens of the masses rather than the laying of fresh ones on, but then it must be remembered that the present is hardly a fife time for abolishing Customs duties. The inexorable demands for interest, which the money-lenders in the old country periodically make must be attended to, and the masses have rather to congratulate themselves on the fact that the Government have shown impartiality in putting on the extras. Large landowners certainly should be the last to cry out about taxation, for no other marketable commodity has benefi...

Odds and Ends. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 October 1894

- 1 Odds and Ends. ! The National League for the Abolition of i the House of Lords (says Reynold's Weekly) was fortunate in selecting September 2 for the people's demonstration in Hyde Park" against the Peers. It was the finest of the. very few fine days we have liad this month, and there is no doubt that the bright sum shine contributed largely to the success of the gathering. In point of numbers it did not come up to the last Legal Eight Hours Day Demonstration, hut, considering the hurry in which it was organized, and the very limited funds at the disposal of the promoters, it was really a magnificent de | monstration. Estimates vary a good deal as to the number of persons present, but it is safe to say that when the resolution ! calling for the abolition of the House of Lcrds was put fully 60,000 hands were held up in support of it. But the importance of the occasion cannot be gauged by the atten dance, inasmuch as the gathering was in the nature of a delegate meeting. A large n...

Boiling Oil. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 October 1894

Boiling Oil. It was in the year 1850, we were bound from Glasgow with a general cargo to Singapore. Shortly after we left the tail of the bank the ship was found to be making a deal of water, the pumps had to be attended to every two hours in ordinary weather, and in bad weather we had to keep them going more or less all thfiwatch ; but, notwithstanding these disadvantages, we were fairly happy, all aboard being young men excepting the skipper, who was a real old Western Ocean packet-rat, and as fine a seaman as ever trod a deck. All went along well enough, and nothing, happened to break the monotony of a long sea voyage until we had crossed the south east trades. It was on a Friday evening, tea was over, and the second dog-watch set, when a light on the port bow was reported to the skipper, who was on deck. As it got darker the light appeared to grow brighter and larger, and ultimately it was agreed that it was a ship on fire. Few landsmen can actually know what meaning is attached...

Churchism and the Working Man. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 October 1894

Churehism and the Working Man. What is tlie reason that ±lie working classes, generally speaking, take so little interest in religions matters to-day? This is a question often asked by Christian professors. Let me try to answer the question. Firstly, the toiler is hard worked days^ of the week, and is very apt to Tiewthe^serSttra as a pure day of rest. Then, again., he is too often rendered indifferent and callous to religious obligations by the conduct of those who pose as Church members. On every side he sees so-called worship brought down to the level of a mere fashionable custom, lifeless so far as its best traditions are concerned. Neither is he slow to observe on every hand costly and luxuriant edifices erected on borrowed money, every stone of which so far from belonging to the Almighty is mortgaged to some usurer who spends the interest—provided by tea meetings, special services, bazaars, collections, christy minstrels, and dozens of other modes of raising the wind—in riotou...

A PRAYER FOR LANDLORDS. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 October 1894

A PRATER FOR LANDLORDS. The following " Prayer for Landlords," from the "Primer, or Book of Private Prayer," needful to be used of all Christians, authorized and set forth by order of King Edward VI., might be commended to Aus tralian land-owning classes :—" We heartily pray Thee to send Thy Holy Spirit into the hearts of them that possess the grounds and pastures of the earth, that they, remember ing themselves to be Thy tenants, may not rack or stretch out the rents of their houses or lands, nor yet take unreasonable fines or money, after the manner of covetous world lings, but so let them out that the inhabi tants thereof may pay the rents, and to live and nourish their families and remember the poor. Give them grace also to consider that they are but strangers and pilgrims in this world, having here no dwelling-place, but seeking one to come; that they, re membering the short continuance of this life, may be content with that which is sufficient, and not join bouse to house, and...

THE AMERICAN SUGAR TRUST. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 October 1894

THE AMERICAN SUGAR TRUST. The trust was formed ill 1887, and its present financial head is Henry O. Have meyer. All the sugar refineries, twenty in number, are included in the trust. It, therefore has no competitors in tlie produc tion of refined sugar, and as Henry O. Have meyer testified in Washington, can and does regulate prices in the whole country at its pleasure, as it is " protected " by the tariff of half a cent a pound on refined sugar, to which must be added an eighth of a cent for natural protection. Thus the trust can raise prices five-eighths of a cent above that of sugar refined in foreign countries, before the latter can come on. The combined daily capacity of these twenty concerns is 49,400 barrels a day. We do not know the average weight of sugar in eaeh barrel, but think it will not average less than 200 pounds, which would be equal to 9,8SO,000 pounds. Call it 10,000,000, and at half a cent a day that represents a possible extra profit by the tariff of five milli...

Charles Bright at the Baptist Church, Nor wood, on Sunday Evening, September 30,1S94, [Published by Special Arrangement.] " For I have given you aii example, that ye should do as I have done to you."—St. John xiiL, 15. At the opening of this chapter ne are told that Jesus having loved His own which I were in the world, loved them unto the end. My brethren, that does not simply mean that the friendship which Christ formed with these men, His disciples, at the com mencement of His ministry, was continued up till the present, and that it lasted till the end of His earthly life. But it means that He loved them perfectly, that He gave out the whole of His heart's love to them, that He loved them unto the uttermost, that in spite of all their ignorance, their weakness, their imperfections, their sins, and their backsHdings. His heart was so bound up with them that He loved them utterly, and gave every expression he possibly could of His love. ...

Editorial Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 October 1894

Editorial Notes. Many happy returns of the day ! An old and felicitous style of wishing one well; and we in conjunction with numer ous well-wishers and sympathisers echo the time-honored sentiment on this the birthday of the Weekly Herald. Our little journal has been ushered into light; under the most auspicious circumstances,   everything connected with its nativity having been of a satisfactory and en couraging nature, and given a fair amount of practical support by those who profess to believe in the principles which it advocates its life should neither be short nor profitless. The Herald is going to run on liberal lines, and we hope it will soon earn for itself the re putation of being a democratic organ of the first water—fearless and outspoken. We intend to champion the cause of the people, and throw our whole weight on the side of humanity and the progressive movement. Our actions will be taken in the aggressive against systems rather than individuals, though whe...

THE MARKET PRICE OF WIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 12 October 1894

I THE MARKET PRICE OF WIVES. —h In the earliest times of purchase, a woman was bartered for useful goods,.or for services rendered to her father. "la* obis latter way Jacob purchased Rachael atftL her siste Leah. The price of a bride in British Columbia and Vancouver Island varies from twenty to fifty pounds' worth of articles In Oregon, an Indian gives for her horses blankets, or buffalo robes; in California shell-money or horses; in Africa, cattle. A poor Damara will sell a daughter for a cow ; a rich Kaffir expects from three to thirty. With the Banyai, if nothing be given, her family claim her children. In Uganda, where no marriage recently existed, she may be obtained for half a dozen needles, or a coat, or a pair of shoes. An ordinary price is a box of percussion caps. In other parts a goat or a couple of buck skins will buy a girl. Passing to Asia, we find her price is some times five to fifteen roubles, or at others, a cartload of wood or hay. A princess may be purchased for...

CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 October 1894

CRICKET. Last week good-hearted and sterling cricketer W. Delaney joined tlie ranks of the benedicts. He is a member of the Adelaide Cricket Club, and has always worked hard for his side both with bat and ball. I still have a pleasant recollection of his plucky stand against " the flower of English bowling" with his club mate Bernie Serymgour, when they were sent in first to bear the brunt of the attack in the match South Australia v. Lord Sheffield's Eleven. I am sure every South Australian cricketer will join me in wishing him " a long double innings." Richardson, the Surrey bowler, who has a place in Stoddart's eleven, first saw the light at Mitcham. the little Surrey village where the Australian teams always have their first practice before playing matches. In 1892 his average in all matches was 13'54; 101 wickets, 1,367 runs. In 1893, playing for his county, his average was 13*57 ; 184 wickets for 2,449 runs. He was selected fo play for England v. Australia at Manchester in 189...
