THE "WEEKLY HERALD." TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 16 November 1894

THE " WEEKLY HERALD." TO THE EDITOR. Sir—On paying a visit at the bouse of a friend of mine I picked up the Herald (the first I have seen), and on reading " Phillibuster's" notes re Christianity, I feel constrained to express my complete sympathy with bis remarks, and at the same time I wish to say that if future issues are equal to that of November, the Herald must be a 2rand success. —Yours. &c. W. G. LUMSDEN. Glencoe, Nov. 10.

The Wandering Jew. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 16 November 1894

The Wandering Jew. j The Sydney Worker gives the report of ! an interview between one of the unemployed and the winged Wandering Jew who occasionally drops in to the " Domain" to see how things are going on in the nineteenth century. It is worth repeating. "So there's no work, my friend," says the ancient Israelite. "No work and no wages," responds the other. "Ah," said the angel, " I comprehend. But why isn't there any work ?" " No demand for any labor. The bosses are all hard-up, so, of course, they can't employ many men." "Well," said the Israelite, "why don't you work for yourself. Surely you can get on without a ' boss,' as you call him." "Oh, so we could if we could get on to the land, but you see all the cheap land is so far away from market that it's no good at all. Freight comes too heavy." "But I saw any amount of good land lying idle all round Sydney when I came down. What's the matter with that ? And here the Israelite smiled the smile of one who feels assured that he ha...

Port Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 16 November 1894

Port Notes. The District Committee of the United Labor Party have made their selections for the coming elections of mayor, councillors, and auditor for the town of Semaphore. Mr. J. H. Lambert will receive the support of the party for the position of Mayor, this gentleman having satisfactorily served as councillor for Glanville Ward, and a pro minent labor man no doubt had considerable claim upon the party. Mr. Councillor J. J. Ashwood for Clairviile Ward, Mr. Cornelius H. Hains for Glanville, and Mr. J. J. Leadham, as auditor, will also receive the support of the workers. Whatever can be the matter with old Portonians? Are they going to allow their annual gala day to become a thing of the past? It is much to be regretted that only eight citizens thought fit to respond to His Worship's invitation to the Town Hall. We feel confident that the ratepayers will shake off the apathy that exists, and muster up in force at the next meeting of the Committee, and we shall yet see a gala on th...

United Trades and Labour Council. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 16 November 1894

United Trades and Labour Council. The usual fortnightly meeting of the Council was held at the Selborne Hotel on Friday evening. The President occupied the chair, and there was a good attendance. Several new delegates were admitted, and a large amount of correspondence was dealt with. Attention was called to the continued boycotting of the Herald, and the delegates were asked to do what they could to get the paper circulated in the town and suburbs. The Retail Assistants' Union and the Tobacco Twisters' Union informed the council that they were each prepared to assist the mining settlement scheme to the extent of £0.

SOCIALISTIC ARCADIAS. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 16 November 1894

SOCIALISTIC ARCADIAS. The -world boasts some four or five small communities which have so far realised the ideal of peace and comfort. Ia Europe the palm must be given to the Communes of the Canton "Vaud in Switzerland. This Canton is quite a Utopia, although it is run on the strictest business principles. Its basis is peasant proprietorship, and the industry of its people is divided between agriculture and small manufacture. Nearly every one is well off, and there are no paupers. Education is free, and there are also com munal estates, the rent of which is applied to the reduction of taxation. Everyone who will'work can live comfortably, and it is recorded that the Commune once paid a hopelessly bard case £300 to resign his communial rights and get out. The Island of Panaria, in the Lipari Group, north of Sicily, is equally fortunate. It owns neither lawyers nor prisons, and criminals and paupers are equally unknown. Norfolk Island, peopled by the descendants of the Mutineers of th...

New Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 16 November 1894

New Australia. Extracts of letter received by a friend from Harry King, Paraguay:—" Things are going on smoothly here, and work is pro gressing well. We have not lost any mem bers from this settlement (Loma Rogua) since Lane's party left. One man left the other settlement {Las Onejas) Smith-Barry, of whom I spoke before. ... At every meal there is always any amount of meat and sweet potatoes (I like the latter better than the ordinary Irish apple), and generally a" second vegetable—green peas, turnips, beans, cabbages (of which we have 12,000 already planted), and others. Bread we hare only twice a day, breakfast and tea, no great hardship you will say for a month or two till our crops ripen. . . , There have been two families re-admitted here lately that left with the first big split. Several others have also applied for re admission, but the consideration of their application has been put off for three months. I have read two of Hastings' letters to the 'Tiser.

The Bigotry of Politics. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 16 November 1894

The Bigotry of Politics. The bigotry and vindieativeness of politics is denounced by " Ouida." Crispi, she says, much loved by England, because he serves as a kind of watchdog over France, is a cruel and merciless man where politics are concerned; a red Revolutionist once; he has now turned to the Opportunist. It is his personal authority and malignity which have placed scores of men of high intelli gence and character in all the prisons of Italy, to suffer like common criminals, for the offence of having opposed his politics. De Felice {who is the most dreaded, and therefore the most persecuted of all) is shut up in a cell, 3 metres by 5, in the fortress of Volterra, in solitary confinement for three years; imprisonment and hard labor for more than a score of years are to follow. In this cell there is no furniture. The bed of sacking, let down at night, is drawn up by pulleys at dawn of day to the ceiling. The food consists of bread, one plate of vegetable soup, and a single pipkin...

Churehism and its Relationship to the Masses. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 16 November 1894

Churehism and its Relation ship to the Masses. It has always been the lot of reformers to be misunderstood, and as often as not to be made the target of senseless and bigoted criticism. And so we find to-day that an earnest section of the Church of Christ, who daily bear upon their hearts the burdens of the maltreated masses, and engage in an active crusade against evil, are met with rebuff from a majority of pastors and ex tremely orthodox religionists who regard any departure from custom, or alterative proposals as little short of schism. The Church, indeed, has been so long condoning injustice and wrong that it is hard to make its officers believe that any special call is needed to change matters, except by a strictly passive kind of opposi tion. In fact the teaching appears to be " that every man should be contented with the position which Almighty God has placed liim in." This, to my mind, is rank blas phemy, for God assuredly does not want to see the social and industrial rela...

Under the Crusher. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 16 November 1894

Under the Crusher. Usury is gradually depriving the small farmer of his acres. Says the capitalist—"You farmers had better look out or the labor people will tax you off the land." Says the farmer—" The labor people are a bit too sensible for that; the tax we fear most is that of monopoly, which cuts us in every possible direction— through the Banks, through the wheat rings, &c., &c," Fact of the matter is the " crazy" labor people waut to give free railways, State Banks, and plenty of consuming power to the people—every benefit in fact which would help the agriculturist. Interest, eternal interest, is the dreadful absorber of all the considered and uncon sidered trifles of city and country—the huge Moloch which swallows the profits of farmer, tradesmen, and labor. Interest is the one thing that makes complete idleness in the individual possible. If interest is a necessity, then sooner the State collars it and harnesses it up to the Government car the better. The peop...

CO-OPERATION. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 16 November 1894

CO-OPERATION. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—Your remarks last -week upon co operation are to the point, and I was very much pleased to read them. True enough, as you say, too little attention has been paid by Unionists in the matter, and the possi bilities to be achieved by the workers are illimitable, as you point out. Mr. Tom Mann, a prominent Unionist leader, is con stantly urging upon his followers the im portance of the subject, and the combina tion of the two forces, or, as I should say, a recognition by each other, a closer relation ship. Some few years back I was speaking at an inaugurating meeting at the Port in 1 connection with the opening of a co-opera tive store there, and it struck me then ; and I asked them why they could uot load and unload ships on their own account, without the intervention of a- capitalistic company. And I fail to see yet why. Only on account of the extreme difficulty there is in educating men up to a proper sense of their power and importance. I may say tha...

Trade and Labor Unions. S.A. Tobacco-twisters' Union.—The tobacco-twisters' meeting was held at the Selborne Hotel on the 7th inst., and after the correspondence was dealt with, Mr. Chapman moved that all members should serve a term of office; 'the motion was adjourned. It was resolved that the Union, slionld withdraw from the eight hours cele bration committee. The delegates gave in their reports of the business of the Trades Council, and dissatisfaction was expressed for the way the Brewers Employers' Union had treated Mr. McAuliffe, one of their mem bers, who had been discharged for taking part in Union business, and a motion was carried—" That this Union protests against the action of the Brewers Employers' Union in connection with Mr. McAuliffe.

People's Column. PROFESSIONALISM ON OUR RAILWAYS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 16 November 1894

People's Column. PROFESSIONALISM ON OUR RAILWAYS. TO THE EDITOR. No resident engineer lias ever been appointed to so short a length of line as 100 miles, the average, as will be seen from the return previously quoted, being 261 miles with a maximum of 320, and a minimum of 167 miles, sidings being in cluded. As already stated his duties extend far beyond the receipt of pay-sheets and reports from district foremen -who, of course, take the whole responsibility in the first instance for the maintenance and safety of his road, but also is very careful to share it with the resident engineer as early as possible, -who again deals with it similarly with regard to his next superior in accor dance with the recognised rules of the service. I wonder what " M." thinks are the duties of a resident engineer of a rail way ; or, indeed, of any engineer, if Ms services are never required in the main tenance of the road, and if no resident pro fessional engineering supervision is required in the mai...

On the Wing. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 16 November 1894

On the Wing, Professor Behring promises a pre ventive against diphthera, typhus, and possibly consumption. Some people would sooner take the risk of the disease than the preventive. Holborn restaurant proprietors recently gave 500 workmen, who had been building a new annexe, a banquet. This is the kind of employer the world wants ; not the mere slave driver. Bishop Hawkins, the " Black Bishop," is dead. Born an American slave, he escaped to Canada, and rapidly rose until he became presiding Bishop of the Methodist Episcopal Church of Canada, which post he held up to his death. He was a lifelong abstainer. The latest craze on the Continent—to get a dagger like the one that Caserio slew President Carnot with. Thousand of orders given for same. Large Coal Trust being formed in New South Wales. This is the kind of thing which will hasten reform. When monopoly has finished its work the turning of the long lane will have been reached. A Cobar squatter says he has been ruined by " having t...

THE NEW LAND ASSESSMENT. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 16 November 1894

THE NEW LAND ASSESSMENT. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—The Government is making a great parade of a reduction of 25 per cent, from last year's assessment for the land tax, but I bear tbat in many cases the reduction is nothing like 25 per cent, and in my own case there is absolutely no reduction what ever. I am curious to know what principles the assessors adopt in fixing their values. Are they aware that the present price of wheat here is only one-third of what it was a year or two ago ? The unimproved value of my land is just down at move than I can get for the land with all the improvements added. —I am, Sir, &c. CONRAD N. WOkNUM. Lanra, November 8.

LABOR EXPORTED. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 16 November 1894

LABOR EXPORTED. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—It is plain to all that labor retained in any country is an addition to the wealth of that country. This being so, why is it that all wool is now exported in the grease ? Could it not be scoured here before being sent to foreign markets and supply a large outlet for the unemployed labor we have, and retain here the difference between the price of greasy and scoured wool in foreign markets, besides saving fully 30 per cent, in weight for freight, and with less chance of fire damp. It seems absurd that labor should be sent out ot the country when it is of such a nature that it can be equally as well done here without any loss to the owner, but a profitable gain instead, and a certain indirect gain, for wealth retained in a country is a direct gain to the whole com munity. It is unnecessary to send our labor away to other parts of the world, and it may be mentioned that this is only one of many outlets to labor which could be re tained here for the be...
