MEETING OF RAILWAY EMPLOYEES. an Appeal Board. the practical eve-sight test. ax unanimous vote is favor. On Sunday afternoon last a meeting of railway employes, under the auspices of the Enginemen, Firemen and Gleaners9 Associa tion, was held in the lodge room at the Town Hall, Petersburg. There was a large attendance and Mr. J. McEntee presided. AN APPEAL BOARD. Mr. G. W. Ward, President of the Asso ciation, in .introducing ihe subject of an Appeal Board for jail way men, which matter it is proposed to bring before intending candidates for parliamentary honors at the forthcoming elections, mentioned what had been done in Victoria and New South Wales to establish such a Board, and in proof of the need of a similar one in South Australia cited a few cases of what appeared to be miscarriage of justice that had come under his notice. For the information of the meeting he then read a copy of the amended Act now in vogue in Victoria, and pointed out that the composition of that Board was...

TOM JONES TO HIS FRIEND, PAT MUBPHY. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 25 February 1899

TOM JONES TO HIS FRIEND, PAT MUFPHY. Dear Pat—It is very encouraging to get a word frojn you, but, like most people who live up country, you are annoyingly inquisi tive. I don't know. Things have the appearance of being a bit mixed in the Labor Party just at present, but all will come right before the next elections. I have great faith in the cumulative common sense of the Party, and, like the little girl in the poke bonnet who drops a War Cry over my back fencc, I keep believing. Our common enemy, the National Ass., is very close as to what candidates it is going to run, and all parties are acting like the crack wheelmen at the bike sports, hanging on to each other's wheel; none willing to do the pacing. So the state of things is very slow, and we shall probably see some brilliant sprinting when the last lap-bell is sounded. I shall be better able to let you know my opinions on election matters in a week or so. Whilst organised parties are mum, it is very interesting to watch indiv...

Archbishop O'Reily at Home FIGHT TO THE DEATH FOR A CAPITATION GRANT. CANDIDATURE OF COUNCILLOR DENNY DEPRECATED. £10,000 CLAIMED FOR CATHOLIC SECULAR EDUCATION. [AN INTERVIEW BY OUR SPECIAL REPORTER.] [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 25 February 1899

Archbishop O'Reily at Home FIGHT TO THE DEATH FOR A CAPITATION GRANT. CANDIDATURE OF COUNCILLOR DENNY DEPRECATED. £10,000 CLAIMED FOR CATHOLIC SECULAR EDUCATION. [An Interview by our Special Reporter.] At the foot of the hills at Glen Osmond is Archbishop O'Reily's country residence, built of red brick, which so glistens in the sun and so makes one's eyes smart that it is impossible to look at it long enough to decide upon its style of architecture. A grove of olive trees somewhat softens the harsh effect of the vermilion-colored building, but one is glad to escape from the outside garishness into the inside peace and quiet, and to follow a demure-looking servant into the little ante-room in which His Grace receives visitors. Here a small table and some chairs with upright backs invite attention, but behind these are a sofa and an armchair, evidently not meant for distinguished visitors. A few sacred pictures hang against the walls, but one looks in vain for the "Lives of the Saints...

TRADE AND LABOR SOCIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 25 February 1899

TRADE AND LABOR SOCIETIES. Federated Building Trades' Union.— This union met on the 13th inst., Brother Main, the newly elected president, in the chair. Correspondence was received from the honorary secretary of the U.L P. re lating to finance, and which caused a deal of discussion, the prevailing opinion being that the central body should have definitely risen the annual sustentation to equalize respon sibilities of all the members of the Party. It was decided, however, to respond to the appeal of the central body when the audit was completed. Reports.—Brothers Brooks and Hofmeyer reported proceedings of Trades and Labor Council; the large corre spondence received there took up much time. Brother Seager, delegate to the U.L.P., reported that the central body were alive to the importance of the coming elections, and were giving details earnest consideration. Brothers Symmons, David son, and Robertson reported progress of the conference on factories and labor legislation. A committee...

Social to Messes. Carpenter axd O'Malley. — Messrs. Carpenter and O'Malley's social at Goolwa seems to have been a great success judging by the reports which have reached this office, and must do a great deal towards •cementing the Liberal and Labor votes of that district. A contributor sends the following enthusiastic account of the gathering :— The hall was over crowded on Friday last. The Mayor of Goolwa (Mr. A. Dowland), who ls a great supporter of the present members, presided. The room was splendidly decorated by the ladies, who are determined that they will get their members returned if possible. Crowds eame from all parts of the district, and it was the most successful, social •ever held here. When the King spoke the cheers rang through the hall, and Mi\ Carpenter had a grand reception, which is a proof of the good services they have rendered to the district. The programme lasted till twelve o'clock, friends from Wentworth, N.S.W. (Mrs. Martin and Miss Long), Misses Johnston...

The Public Service Commission.— The above Commission have held their first meeting, and appointed the Hon. J. V. O'Loghlin (Chief Secretary) as chairman and Mr. H. E. Batchelor secre tary and shorthand writer. We question whether the appointment of the repre sentative of the Government as chairman is wise, seeing that the enquiry is to be devoted to the conditions prevailing in the Government service and the necessity for alteration in the Bill brought forward by the Government last session. The chairman has to conduct the enquiry, and has very considerable influence on Com missions, and already there is a feeling that the Ministerial bias is too strong on the part of the Commission as a whole for a satisfactory verdict. Now is the time, however, for public servants to wake up and arrange that their grievances and desires shall be placed before the Com missioners in a definite and practical manner, and we hope the organisations concerned will take the matter up thoroughly.

The President of the Trades & Labor Council. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 25 February 1899

The President of the Trades & Labor Council. Mr. W. J. STRIKE. Mb. W. J. Strike, whose portrait ap pears in our issue to-day, is the new president of the United Trades and Labor Council of South Australia. He was born at Moonta in 1867, so that he is not yet thirty-two years of age. He was educated at the local State school and at Mr. Parsons' grammar school. After leaving school he was engaged for some time in business with his father, and on his father's death he continued the business for some time, but finding things some what slack he determined to remove to the city. Here he took a position in the waterworks department, and for the past sixteen years he has remained in the employ of this department. Mr. Strike may be said to have inherited an interest in the Labor movement, as his father was ah active sympathiser with the men in the great labor troubles on the Peninsula, and though he lost materially by this he was content to have been on the side of humanity and right...

THE HERALD. ADELAIDE: FEBRUARY 25, 1899. THE GENERAL ELECTIONS. The near approach of the important day when our readers mil have to record their votes is impressed upon us by the meeting of parliament next week, when, after the Government have submitted for the consideration of hon. members a short Bill authoris ing the holding of a referendum on the Commonwealth Bill, as amended by the Premiers' Conference recently held in Melbourne, and the said Bill has been disposed of in both Chambers, the Legislative Assembly will be dis solved by Her Majesty's representative. Then will begin the electioneering campaign, which necessarily precedes the elections of members for a new parliament; then will come the strife of tongues and clash of diverse opinions so confusing to electors who wish to see and do their duty. Bitter re criminations will be indulged in by Liberals and Conservatives; federation will be used as a stalking-horse by the monopolists; and that political scape goat the Labor ...

FREEDOM OF CONTRACT. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 25 February 1899

FREEDOM OF CONTRACT. Aii important appeal case was tried before Lord Justices A. L. Smith, Cliitty and Collins in the Court of Appeal, England. A workman in the hat trade brought an action for wrongful dismissal against his employers and was awarded by a special jury two hundred and fifty pounds damages. The employers appealed. Their solicitor stated that in August last a strike took place and all their workmen with the exception of the plaintiff went out. After the strike was over, they, in February, 1895, entered into an agree ment with him that they would retain him in their service for seven years, and that he would only be liable to dismissal for neglect of work. The agreement also provided that the plaintiff should not associate with trade unionists, and at that time the defendants appeared to have been the only non-union hatters in the kingdom. On December 1, 1897, while waiting for work to do, the plaintiff went into a publichouse and had a drink with a man named Oaten, a me...

To find employment for 700 men is a poor record, and the Government ought to be ashamed of itself. Of course we do not know who " C.F.E." is, and cannot vouch for his statements about the thirty men sent to Bundaleer ; but whoever he mdy be, he is tight in thinking that it would do some of the gentlemen at the head of the departments good to know what it is to tramp far and beg for bread ; there is too much starch about them altogether. No doubt it is true, as they so often tell us, that some of the men who enter their names at the Bureau are worthless, some drink, and some shirk work. But there are many who do none of these things, and it is not the desire of the community that one man who is able and willing to work should remain idle. The elections are close at hand, and the unemployed should take advantage of the time that is approaching to roll up at public meetings and insist on all candi dates considering the out-of-work problem. Judging by the letters on the subject which ha...

Passing Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 25 February 1899

Passing Notes. Some heart-rending stories of girls em ployed in Adelaide shops have reached us. One girl, who has sole charge of a small shop in the centre of the city, receives 6s. a week for working from 8 a.m. till 6 p.m. She pays 2s. 6d. a week for her room, and the remaining 3s. 6d. is all she has for food, clothes, and soap. Another girl working in a similar place receives 6s. 6d. a week. The latter lives on bread and milk. Neither of these girls gets a square meal unless invited to a friend's home. Yet they are expected to be *ivirtuous." Their employers say that it is impossible to compete against the big shops which now sell a little of every thing. The owner of one shop works at his trade, and his wife looks after the children and the house. The girl in this shop is supposed to add to the family income by taking care of the capital invested in the shop, and if she received more for her work the owner could not cover her wages and the rent and make a small profit. The Defen...
