Parliament Dissected. MR. R. HOMBURG. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 9 November 1894

Parliament Dissected. MR. R. HOMBURG. More than a decade in Parliament, and still unclassified. Two weeks ago the Herald arranged members under the various headings of ultra and moderate Conserva tives and Liberals, but Mr. Hombnrg's was one of the only two names that found no place among them. Yet there should be reliable indications as to his position. Mr. Homburg is not a dreamer; he lives in the storm and stress of political action. When he reflects at all, it is usually after, not before the event; his tendency is to rush into action unprepared. On two occasions he has indicated no-confidence motions on the spur of the moment, and had somewhat ignominiously to back out of an inglorious fizzle. What is the explanation of his ambiguous position ? We have actions and speeehes by which a judgment should be formed, but they lead to no conclusion, the simple reason being that in themselves they are contradictory. Looking back a few years we call to mind the fact that no man has enter...

Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 9 November 1894

[Advt.] A slip of some newspaper, probably of November 6, 1891, came into my hand, which, naming a wrong man that applied, read thus:— SINGULAR APPLICATION. An amusing incident cropped up in the application of Mr. Thomas Polack to be al lowed to distribute certain tracts among the patients. Parts of a specimen tract were read by the Chairman amidst laughter ; it was entitled, " The Herald of the Millenium and a Sure Solution of the Social Problem," and dealt with such questions as the late Broken Hill strike and other labor problems in a fervent spirit. The request was de cliued. Very much obliged for this malicious and wilful misrepresentation of the pamphlet in question, which, besides beiug thus at tentively announced to the public at linage, shows by what faithful Government officials the self-governing people are ruled, because there is no Thomas in that pamphlet, but rather laughing Pharisees aud scribes in that announcement, who don't care a d for poor Judas Iscariot, or our ...

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

Port Notes. The s.s. Meeinderry returned to the Port on Sunday morning, after having been " piled up" on Flinders Island for over three months. People are anxious to know what arrange ments tbe Government have made for the erection of cool storage of butter and other produce awaiting shipment. Also how a local mercantile firm can manage to get a few " tit-bits" from the Government. For instance, the filliug up of part of the railway station yard at a cost of over £900, and no tenders called for the work ; the leasing of the Dockyard WbaJrf, at Glanville, under similar circumstances. So far the only candidates that have come to the front for municipal honors are Mr. C. R. Morris, who intends to contest the Mayorality with the present occupant, and Mr. J. W. Caire as Councillor for Cleave Ward. At the Semaphore things promise to be lively. The labor party have promised to support Mr. Councillor Haius for- Glanville Ward, but up to the present have made ho further recommendations. The ...

Drama and Music. [By Ariel.] At the Theatre Royal on Friday and Saturday last Syduey Grundy's drama, "A Village Priest," was presented to a delighted audience, and Mr. Titheradge received hearty congratulations from the entire house for his great impersonation of L'Abbe Dubois. On November 5 and 6 " Ti£e Sportsman" and " In Honor Bound" were played ; November 7 and 8, " The Second Mrs. Tanqueray." To-niglit "Niobe" (by special request) will be staged, to be re peated to-morrow, when Mrs. Brough makes her last appearance in Australia. The season has been a highly successful one, a state of things most encouraging to the promoters and most pleasing to the patrons of the drama. I join with the theatregoers of Adelaide in wishing Mrs. Brough a safe voyage home, knowing that many here will watch lier-career in England, and anxiously look forward to her early return to Australian shores. On Saturday last, under the guidance of Mr. Wiese, the courteous and energetic sec retary of the Allge...

HON. JOHN WARREN ON DEPRESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 9 November 1894

. HON. JOHN WARREN ON DEPRESSION. The Hon. John Warren, M.L.C., lias been giving Gawler a turn. To judge by bis most fervid utterances, as reported by the Register, things political must have taken a very serious turn indeed. The hon. gent has become frightened, and consequently has thrown himself in the breach. Honest old John Warren ! He is afraid the country is going to the dogs, and—but there, let hitn tell his own story :—" Even now the eastern colonies are suffering from bodies of lawless men, who are supported by the Labour Unions of South Australia. They travelled about the country trying to do their best to prevent the wool harvest from beina; reaped. They had burned woolslieds, fences, ships, and destroyed cattle and other property, but when captured by the police and proved to be guilty on the clearest evidence, juries were so corrupt or afraid that they would not find them guilty. We had no staikes of importance in South Australia, he was happy to say, but what was the a...

SOCIETY FOR THE STUDY OF CHRISTIAN SOCIOLOGY. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 9 November 1894

SOCIETY FOR THE STUDY OF CHRISTIAN" SOCIOLOGY. At the usual weekly meeting of the above, held at Jackman's Rooms on Thursday, November 1, Mr. W. Guthrie delivered an address 011 the " Lord's Prayer." Mr. C. Proud (Vice-President) occupied the chair. The lecturer i*eferred to the article by Morrison Davidson on that subject, and admired him for the plain and unmistakable position he had taken, that God was the common Father of all, sustaining a living interest in all his creatures, and that the Bible contained His revelation to men. Christ's prayer, the lecturer remarked, was a model for all his followers in all ages, but even yet its full significance had no- been realised. What a deep and far-r jaehing truth was embraced in the first clans3 Our Father." The Father of all, not of one sect or party, or of certain favoured individuals, but standing always, and to all men, in the relation of a loving and bountiful Father. A true conception of and belief in that fact would change the wh...

CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 16 November 1894

CRICKET. The niatcli South Australia v. England commenced on Friday in splendid weather. The Englishmen batted first, and knocked up 476 runs, the principal scorers being Brown 115, Stoddart 66, Ford 66. Giffen took 5 wickets for 174, The field ing was very loose, easy chances being missed. South Australia responded with 3S3. Darling played grand cricket for 117 before being bowled. Lyons is not in form yet, but Walter Giffen played with great confidence. George Giffen gave a scientific exhibition of the game, making 64; but Dyer showed wretched form. Harry Blmman played a plucky innings, and Clem Hill stood his ground like a veteran, scoring a valuable *20. Peel took 5 wickets for 69. The fielding was not first class. It seemed strange to see men like Stoddart and Ford stopping the ball with their feet. In their second innings the Englishmen were disposed of for 130. George Giffen bowled splendidly, taking 6 wickets for 49. South Australia secured a thoroughly deserved victory by 6...

Late Correspondents. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 16 November 1894

Late Correspondents. Alfred Sibly -writes:—"As one of those whose wish is that the Herald should be a power in the laud, I offer a few thoughts. You said in one of your issues that if the Herald failed with such a following it deserved to fail. I hope it will not deserve to fail. I am with W. H. Hardy—I say that the Voice failed, but it never deserved it. It did a grand work for such a small paper, but working men do not always know their best friends, or do not support them. Now, Sir, every working man that is in work should take one copy ; then the Herald will not fail. Why, the city and suburbs could manage 10,000, if they spend a little of their energies in supporting this paper. They often want to know how we can alter the state of things which are so bad at present. I say one way is, support a paper in which your aims and wishes are expounded, and in which they can express their ideas on all questions. Why is it that so much prejudice exists in the country against the labor pa...

Mr. Tomkinson: HIS "PSTRIPTIC AND UNSELFISH" ACTION IN REGARD TO THE BULLION ACT. [BY A NATIVE.] [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 16 November 1894

Mr. Tomkinson: His "Patriotic akd Unselfish" Action i it regard to the bullion act. [By a Native.] It will be recollected that when gold was discovered in 1S51, there was 110 mint in Australia, and consequently no mechanical or legal means for turning the gold into legal tender. The banks and other gold buyers took the full advantage of this cir cumstance to run the price of gold down to 52s. an oz., its real value being about S2s., I thus robbing the digger of about 30s. an oz. To do tbis they, in many instances, only issued notes in exchange for gold, not even giving the coined sovereigns for the rough gold. This scandal became so great that the mercantile community of Adelaide petitioned the Governor to convene the Legislature to take the facts into consideration, and to pass an Act to do justice to the diggers and save the colony from bankruptcy. This was done, the famous bullion Act of 1S52 was passed, the colony was saved, and the : Governor's action upheld by two Colonial Sec...

Some Good Authorities on Woman Suffrage. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 16 November 1894

Some Good Authorities Woman Suffrage. "In the administration of a State neither a woman, as a woman, nor a man, has any special functions, but the gifts are equally diffused in botli sexes."—Plato. " I go for all sharing the privileges of the Government who assist in bearing its bur dens, by no means excluding women."— Abraham Lincoln. " Woman's suffrage is undoubtedly coming, and I, for one, except a great deal of good from it."—Henry Wadsworth Long felloio. " For over forty years I have not hesi tated to declare my conviction that justice and fair dealing and the democratic princi ples of onr Government demand equal rights and privileges of citizenship, irrespective of sex."—J. G. Whittier. " However much the giving of political power to women may disagree with our notions of proprietary we conclude that being required by the first prerequisite to greater happiness, the law of equal freedom, such a concession is unquestionably right and good."—Herbert Spencer.

Democratic Societies. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 16 November 1894

Democratic Societies. Hindmarsh Democratic Association.— Mr. R. H. Simons, of Echunga, lectured as above last Sunday evening, on " The Origin and Destiny of the British Nation." Mr. F. J. Hourigan, M.P., occupied the cliair. There was a fair attendance. The lecturer dealt with the present European outlook. Then referring to the various nations and cities of past ages, he said it was only natural that we should often ask ourselves the great questions. What is our destiny ? Are we destined to disappear from the proud position we hold to-day and become a wreck, as have the great Governments of past ages. With a view to answer these questions, he had gone back on history some 4,000 years, and found our origin as a nation centred in a Chaldean fire worshipper, and by the help of the various histories, our nation could be distinctly traced even 10 the present day. Taking up the dream of the Babylonian King, Nebuchadnezzer, the various portions of the figure in their relations to the Babyl...

ST. MAMMON'S CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 16 November 1894

ST. MAMMON'S CHURCH. 'Twas a lovely Sabbath morning, and the earth looked glad and gay, And the Church bells pealed out welcome in the old familiar way; Welcome, welcome, welcome, a gospel full and free, A message from their metal throats came floating down to me. Welcome, welcome, welcome, there's wel here for thee, A message from their metal throats came floating down to me. And I saw the silk-garbed madames to the doors of Churches throng, And the jewelled misses hurry with books of prayer and song ; And the broad-clothed gentry sauntered in their rings and chains and kid, With dickies white and stiff with starch, that hearts of mammon hid. And it's welcome, welcome, welcome; there's welcome here for thee, A message from the metal throats came floating down to me. And I turned and followed softly, and stood within the door, Till the motley, scented, jewelled crowd their mask of worship wore ; And I waited till the pastor, in his hand some flowing gown, Had bent his head and settl...

On the Track Towards Freedom. No. 5—LABOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 16 November 1894

On the Track Towards j Freedom. [Bv "Bluey."] No. 5—labob. Labor is a word to swear by —and some times to swear at. It is in everybody's mouth, and yet it seems to me sometimes that it is as little understood as a teething baby by a bachelor, or as a great sorrow by one who lias never felt a wound. The air is full of cries about labor. We have labor parties and labor churches, labor poets and labor members of Parliament, and last, but not least, we have labor newspapers. At any rate we have one labor paper in the Weekly Herald in S.A., and the Workers in the other colonies also worthily champion the cause of the laborers. Our Govern ments are supposed by the Conservatives to be under the domination of the labor party, and one of our poets has declared that " Labor—all labor—is honest and holy." Yet is there not ofttimes a good deal of cant about this worship of labor ? Does not th e labor poet sometimes apostrophise the very class whom he seeks to leave behind Kiugsley was not far w...

The Mayoral Feast. [Br One of the Crow©.] The proceedings at the Mayor's banquet on Wednesd.ay evening looked very like a put-up job in order to give the Premier and other city members a roasting in their own citadel. About 200 reputed capitalists (staunch adherents of the National Ass.), a sprinkling of high Civil service dignitaries, a few members of Parliament, and his Ex. the Governor (we beg his pardon for sticking him in last of the list) sat down to the spread. After the preliminary loyal toasts, Sir John Downer proposed "The City of Ade laide." Instead of saying anything about the city he launched into a tirade against the Ministry, the domination of muscle over brain (otherwise the labor party), and the tendency of modern legislation. His re marks were, of course, received with wild shrieks of delight by the National Ass. sec tion, and even the Chief Justice, who, up till this time appeared rather uncomfortable in Ms gorgeous apparel, relaxed, and gave expression to marked ...
