CHURCHISM AND ITS RELATIONSHIP TO THE MASSES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 23 November 1894

CHURCHISM AND ITS RELATION SHIP TO THE MASSES. TO THE EDITOR. Sir — I liave just read the article "Churchism and its Relationship to the Masses" in the last issue of the Herald. I must say that, although a Church member of some years' standing, I heartily agree with every word contained therein, and as I think it deserves greater publicity than it will enjoy in the pages of the Herald, I would suggest that it be reprinted in leafllet form for distribution among the many pastors and members of different Churches, who, unfortunately, never read the only organ in the colony published in the cause of humanity. I would undertake to distri bute 200 or more among Church members and parsons at the Semaphore, and if others did the same in their districts, I think we might fairly expect good results to follow after the spreading broadcast of the seeds of truth. I am, Sir, &c., WM. C. QUEST.

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE: NOVEMBER 23, 1894 SOCIALISM. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 23 November 1894

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE : NOVEMBER 23, 1894 SOCIALISM. Socialism belongs to that class of terms which unfortunately for tlie cause of reform can be elasticised and distorted to mean almost anything betwixt good and evil. Hence \vt have to-day men taking it as a groundwork upon which, to build auti-auarcliical arguments, rather than a basis upon which, to teach pure doctrines of humanity. Of course we know there are misguided men who advocate violent revolution and impossible Utopian schemes under the guise of Socialists, but is that to be deemed a justifiable reason for branding socialism, pure and simple, as the teaching of devils ? We think not 1 Socialism at any rate to us, and to all humanitarians, must in the first place be based upon l^Tew Testament teachings. We cannot recognise any other than Christian socialism, which necessarily must work for ordei*, aud not disorder, for right, and not wrong. But here comes the apple of discord. What is right and what is wrong r Unfor...

INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 23 November 1894

INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—Perusing some cuttings from Ameri can newspapers of a few years ago, I find the following reported of a great Press dinner. One of the leading New York journalists was asked to propose a toast, " The Independent Press." He stated there is no such thing as an independent Press, unless it be in the country towns. " You are all slaves! You know it, and I know it; there is* not one of you who dares to express an honest opinion. If you express it you would know before hand it would not appear in print. I am paid $150 a week for keeping honest opinions out of the paper I am connected with {New York Sun). Others of you are paid similar sums for doing similar things. If I allow honest opinion to appear in one issue of my paper, like Othello, my occupation would be gone. The man who would be foolish enough to print honest opinions would be out in the street looking for another job. The business of a leading journalist is to distort the truth, to lie...

HEAVY WHEAT BAGS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 23 November 1894

HEAVY WHEAT BAGS. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—I beg to bring under your notice the question of tbe weight of bags of wheat which arrive at Port Augusta to be shipped or stacked- The average weight per bag of a number of truckloads taken on the wharf a few days ago was 270 lb. per bag. This weight is simply killing to the majority of men, and breaks them down prematurely. It requires no unbiassed person to see a man toiling up a stack of wheat on a bot day for Mm to come to one conclusion, i.e., that it is cruel work for a man to do, and only fit for horses. Not only does the carrying of such a load break men down, but it gives a monopoly of work to a few of tbe very strongest men, v. ho practically rule the roost. When wheat has to be stacked they claim the very highest rate of pay, whilst their fellows who are not able to carry such loads for any time, are idle and unable to get a share of the work. The system is bad for employer as well as employ^. At present the employer pays the best pri...

John Burns on Railway Men and Wages. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 23 November 1894

Burns on Railway Men and Wages. The other day at Battersea John Burns gave an address to railway servants. He said among other things that but for their Unions tliey would be working on an aver age 20 per cent, longer hours, and receiving . an average of 3s. or 4s. less per week than I at present. The four Unions now existing had enrolled about 70,000 men in their ranks, and the foremost place among them was undoubtedly that occupied by the Amalgamated Society of Railway Servants. Having shown from their statistics the value of practical organisation and the immediate benefits accruing from regular subscriptions, Mr. Burns cited the speeches of railway Directors to prove that the companies bad as the result of agitation and organization on the part of the men, been compelled to pay three millions more in wages last year than they paid in 1S90, and this amount has been spread practically over the same number of employes. How much better, then, would it be for railway servants to subs...

On the Track Towards Freedom. No. 6.—LIBERTY. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 23 November 1894

On the Track Towards Freedom. [By "Bluey."] No. 6.—Libertv. Liberty is dear to the heart of every free man, and is an essential of all true social progress and happiness. But what is liberty ? Aye, there's the rub. Is it neces sarily covered by "freedom of contract," which is often a euphemism for "freedom to starve ?" Is it fully involved in the so called freedom of trade, •which, through being based on private land-ownersbip, is sometimes only a method whereby the few captains of industry may the more readily exploit the workers? Or is it absolute anai-chism, wherein there shall be no government, and where each man shall do as he likes, regardless of the welfare of his fellows? Nay, is it even embraced in that so-called democratic system whose avowed aim is to secure the happiness of the greatest number, and which, in order to do that, oftentimes seems indifferent to the rights of minorities, especially if such niiuorities are too insignificant to be powerful in politics ? It seem...

Among the Stonebreakers. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 23 November 1894

Among the Stooebreakers. It was a piece of grim irony on the part of the Government to put the stoneeracking reserve at the back of the Destitute. Au occasional sight of that last residence of the pauper dead-beat should make the Sagging hand grip the hammer with fresh determina tion and vigor. So I thought as I strolled down to the spot on Saturday morning last to see how the nappers were getting on. Two brawny-chested fellows were inter viewed, one with only one arm, and the other with the flour dust thickly sprinkled about his locks. The stone-napping was finished where they were, and work was confined to running the plank with loaded b,arrp,w§ 31* incline of ah>ou$ § ft. iijto a truck, a dis tance of about 100 to 150 ft. ■ No light wo^k ! " Awkward enough for n>e, sir," said the one-armed man. " I came down a cropper yesterday. You see I am afraid that some day I shall fall and not be able to disengage •' my hook' from the handle of the barrow— in which case I might receiv...

The Two-faced Law. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 23 November 1894

The Two-faced Law. Ia view of the recent Parliamentary gambling episode and the raid on the small turf commission houses, the following cut tings from the Age come very appro priately :— settling over the V.R.C. Spring meet ing proceeded satis factorily at the Vic torian Club yester day, the ring having considerably the best of the deal. There were no very large winners over the Mel bourne Cup except Mr. Purclies, the owner of Patron, and lie ordered in some champagne when his settling had been completed, and seve ral toasts were hon oured. So far no heavy defaults are spoken of, either among fielders or backers, but, as is usual when the bal ance is against backers, settling pro ceeds slowly.

Let us be Sincere. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 23 November 1894

Let us be Sincere. If ever there was a time when the,-world needed reforming that time .is now^JiVitli the Banks stretching their octopus paws over all the land and oyer every in dustry. With monopolistic .and criminal accumulators of wealth — other men's wealth — occupying high public posi tions, and the virtuous and fair-minded crushed under authority, and with justice prostituted in Court and street, it jis'surely time for men to hand themselves together, not for self-protection only, but for the divine purpose of cleansing the entire social structure as far as Australia is concerned, freeing it once and for ever of cant, political jobbery, and one-sided laws. Sincerity rightly directed can accomplish almost anything; it can overturn empires, and sweep statutes and rotten decrees away like magic. But minus sincerity, and all the loud talk, and the threats, and the massing of men is futile. One intelligent man, fired with truth and good desires, and made enthusiastic by sincerity ...

Parliamentary Mems. [BY GALLERY MAN.] [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 23 November 1894

Parliamentary Mems. [By Gallery Max.] Legislative Council, November 15. Taxation discussion. An amendment to exempt mortgaged land was lost. Mr. Ward made himself {more conspicuous than usual, if that were possible, by the singularity of liis conduct and language. House of Assembly, November 15. Oil a motion to sit on Fridays 22 members spoke—most of them on the subject of un desirable long-speaking. Only after a windy two hours was it agreed to sit as asked from November 30. The Pastoral Bill was advanced a stage, after which the Adult Suffrage Bill was discussed, Tom Price, the genial man of the Fouse, treating members to a piece of warm and unconventional advocacy on the side of women. Second reading of Mining on Private Property Bill passed. Legislative Council, November 20. After some acrimonious discussion on the Taxation Bill divisions were taken which resulted in the defeat, by 14 votes to 9, of the amendments to alter the exemption of £5,000 and to apply the tax to land " n...

An Effect of the Eight Hours Day. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 23 November 1894

Effect of the Eight Hours Day. Mr. Brunner, M.P., of Brunner, Mond, aiid Co., lias been speaking ou the Eight Hours Day. At tlieir works in November, 1889, the chauge was made with a drop of ten per cent, in Avages. In January, 1891, 1 the reduction in wages was abandoned. After four years' experience it was found that the cost per ton in wages was not more than in 1S89. (Applause.) He believed that part of the improvement was due to grater efficiency of the men and part to improvement in plant. Cost of maintenance was increased; but lie could say for himself and for his colleagues that, looking at the results which had ac crued, they none of them grudged the extra CQ§t, Jokes—" I say, ole chap, you don't look up to the mark—what's wrongXJp with the boys last night, eh R.obixso>"—" I was—twins, old man !"

Trade and Labor Unions. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 23 November 1894

Trade and Labor Unions. S.A. Bookbinders' and Machine Rulers' Society".—The seventh half-yearly meeting was held at the Prince of Wales Hotel on Tuesday, 13th instant. There was a moderate attendance, and the President took the chair. Owing to the depression of trade it was decided by ballot that the sub scription should be reduced to threepence per week, and the Mortality Fund dispensed with. The balance-sheet ami report was read, and showed-that the Society was both financially and numerically iti a very sub stantial and progressive state. It was decided that the Society take up five shares in the S.A. Co-Operative Printing Society, and the members were urged to purchase regularly the Wccldy Herald and to solicit their friends to do likewise. It was sug gested that one of the members of each shop should solicit orders for the. Weekly Herald, and probably it may be effected.

People's Column. PROFESSIONALISM ON OUR RAILWAYS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 23 November 1894

People's Column. PROFESSIONALISM ON OUR RAILWAYS. TO THE EDETOK. Sir—Permit me to reply to your corres !»ondent " Verax," who lias in a very long etter championed the cause of railway resident engineers, and charges me with being in error in many of my statements. Taking "Verax" statement that £7,983 is all we pay for engineering supervision on our railways as correct (which I do not) then that is an enormous sum to pay in return for services that are not required, and con sequently could be dispensed with. Your correspondent says I cannot be aware of the duties of a resident engineer, and proceeds to detail his various duties and responsi bilities in connection therewith ; but to be correct your correspondent should have stated that their duties and responsibilities are merely nominal and, as I pointed out in my last letter, the real responsibility is on the district foremen. My experience on the construction and maintenance of railways In these colonies extends over some thirty ye...

People's Column. ADULT SUFFRAGE. 30 THE EDITOR, Sir—I was very pleased with your article on " Adult Suffrage," in which you take for granted that the women's vote would be on the side of moral purity. Most certainly it would be. I am an old woman now, yet I hope to live to see female suffrage become the law of the land. But there is an im mense amount of ignorance and indifference to overcome. My occupation brings me in contact with a good many families. I regret much to see how many there are who do not seem to have an idea on anything beyond eating and dressing, and maybe pleasure taking. Now and then I meet with a bit of petty "home rule," in which the head of the household loftily gives you to under stand that his wife and daughters don't trouble themselves about any political matters. And they quietly accept the posi tion, so whatever mental ability they may have is frittered away on novel reading, dress, and gossip. There is yet another class of people, fewer in number, but mo...
