Poverty and its Cause. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 30 November 1894

Poverty and its Cause. A Port Lincoln correspondent writes :— " Irishmen especially, who have seen and suffered in the old land, Mill have no diffi culty in realizing these stern truths, and if they have not seen they will have heard or read of the black '47, the coffin ships, the' fate of Glenveigh, and later still of the brutal Giveedore evictions, the crowbar brigade, and of "the monsters which our monstrous system breeds," such as Clanric arde, described by the Times as ' a dis grace and a danger to the Empire.' Irish men, above all others, should be in the first fighting line for reform of a system which has made their country a reproach amongst the nations, and exiled thousands of their race from the land they love so well. The same conditions which produce such misery in Ireland exist here, and cannot possibly" have different results, if not checked' in time and finally uprooted. As a factor in the fight the Weeldy Herald should be supported tooth and nail by every true son o...

Democratic Societies. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 30 November 1894

Democratic Societies. Democratic Clttb.—At the Democratic Club on Sunday evening Mr. Tom Price, M.P-., replied to Mr. J. U. Symon's lecture, " How are we as a State ?" Mr. G. H. Buttery presided over a very good attend ance. He disclaimed that the forward movement appealed to men's selfishness; but, on the contrary, to the highest ideals of self-sacrifice. With reference to the fall of wages, they had not depreciated any more during the reign of the present Government, and if they had it would not be due to them nor to any of their legislative enactments. Mr. Syinon was very much like what Sir Jenkin Coles said of the pastoralists and others, " The fact was that people had got into the habit of hearing the Government and Parliament blamed for everything, in cluding the failure of pastoral pursuits, and they really believed it was true, without making careful investigation." The talk of wiping out Parliament and its legislation as the means of bringing about happinness and prosperity...

Trade and Labor Unions. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 30 November 1894

Trade and Labor Unions. S.A. Tyi'oghai'hicai. Society.—The ordinary meeting of Board of Management of this Society was held on Saturday, November 24, at the office, Gilbert-place, Mr. J. A. Morris (Vice-President) presiding, in the absence of the President. Corre spondence from various sources was received. The Secretary of the Australasian Typo graphical Union wrote, stating that the Sydney strike had been declared " off." The Eight-Hours Celebration Union balau'e slieet was the subject of some criticism, the payments in one or two respects being con sidered more than could well be maintained if an increase in the fund was desired, and it was decided to suggest certain alterations in the rules in the direction of curtailiug and adjustiug the expenditure. The Secre tary reported regarding two applications for id mission held over from previous meeting. The result of the ballot in connection with the United Labor Party, as given in the Weeldy Herald, was reported by the Secre tary. A...

The New Pastoral Bill. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 30 November 1894

The New Pastoral Bill. We are pleased to notice that the Govern ment have introduced • an amending Pas toral Bill. Ever since tlie passing of the Act of 1884, which allowed for payment for pastoral improvements, and which came into operation in 188S and has continued ever since, as the terms of the leases ex pired there has been, unfortunately for the State, a lamentable retrogression in the pas toral industry, and to-day the abandoned ruus in many parts of the colony are un deniable witnesses of the deplorable state to which this industry is drifting. Up to date the pastoral industry can claim to be classed as the most important industry of South Australia. The value of the products of this industry between 1846 and 1S93 represents in round numbers a money value of close upon £57,000,000 in excess of the total value of the product of any of our other staple indus tries. W e mention these facts to show that the importance of the pastoral interest fully warrants our legislature in do...

The Democratic Orators. MR. TOM PRICE. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 30 November 1894

The Democratic Orators. "A Stranger Within Your Gates." MR. TOM PRICE. On looking up the notice for last Sunday evening I found that Mr. T. Price, M.P., was to review Mr. J. H. Syinon's address, " How are we as a State V" but knowing that the reporter will deal with the lecture I shall pass on to the lecturer. Now, if I had any previous impression about Mr. Price, it was that he was a Welshman j how I got it doesn't matter here, but I hadn't listened to him five minutes before I began to prick up my ears mightily. The" con sonants were getting scant attention, but the vowels were rolling out with a rich, full roundness, and the a's and o's and i's taking on that quaint sweetness that can never be forgotten by an ear that has once loved their music. Yes, there was no mistaking the fact that the lecturer hailed from—say Yorkshire or Lancashire, and I at once began to shape a cute surmise with which I hoped to score a point on your columns, Mr. Editor, when my hopes were rudely shatter...

Throw Quack Physic to the Dogs. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 30 November 1894

Throw Quack Physic to the Dogs. A correspondent sends us the following translation from a continental paper. It is interesting reading iu these times when one js being continually pelted with capitalistic sentiment about the subject's liberty, and other quack nostrums :—" The Corporation of Bonbaix, a town in France, has erected a public dispensary, where all medicines are told at actual cost price. They give the following reasons for their action :—' There is nothing more detestable than the power aiul liberty given to the individual to speculate on the illness of his fellow men, by selling him the means by which he may be cured at extortionate prices, and as the majority of the workers are not in a position to properly care for themselves or their families in case of illness—they not having money enough often for the baker—it is the duty of the Council to care for the lives of all citizens,'"

Anniversary Meeting, to be held on December 2S, are due at the A.R.C. office, Currie-street, and Haydon's Racecourse Agency, Melbourne, not later than 4 p.m. on Thursday, Decem ber 6. In reference to the riding at the last Mel bourne Gup meeting, writing under the heading of "Our Jockeys," in the Melbourne Sportsman, "Sterling" lias put the case very plainly, and shows that the only way to remedy the present dearth of good horsemen is the establishing of a riding school at Flemington, and the proper apprenticing of the lads to trainers. He states :—" Never in a very long experience in Australia have I seen the riding so generally bad; never before have bumping, jostling, and purpose less interference been as rife as during the meeting just ended. Even our older and well-tried horsemen seem to have lost the form they once possessed. It is almost cer tain that five out of every ten licensed ...

English Railway Men in Congress. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 30 November 1894

English Railway Men in Congress. There was 110 mincing of matters at the Railway Men's Congress at Newport (says Reynold's), each of the resolutions being passed almost unanimously. They were of ail advanced character, approving of the principle of an eight-hours day, direct re presentation in Parliament, and payment of tlieiv representatives in the House of Commons. It is only by staunch adherence to these resolutions that the conditions under which railway men labor can be im proved. They work seveu days a week, receive only six days' wages, and plate- ■ layers are continually in danger of losing their lives owing to non-protection whilst at work. But the Amalgamated Society of Railway Men is one of the strongest and best organised Trade Unions of to-day, and it has decided to reform the existing dis advantages which make the lives of railway employes scarcely worth living. Serfdom is the rule of the road, in order that shareholders shall receive a good dividend. An end must come ...

The Tramway System of Adelaide. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 30 November 1894

The Tramway System of Adelaide. TBr Fidius.1 When the present tramway system was in troduced into the City of Adelaide some seventeen years ago the citizens thought they had adopted a means of locomotion that would entirely supersede the antiquated and despised cabs formerly in general use. To-day it would seem that the old-fashioned cabs are again greatly in demand in some quarters, and that our tramways are not looked upon by those who have to patronise them as unmixed blessings. Complaints have been loud and frequent that the tram way system does not meet with approval, and that some radical change is urgently demanded. By some people we are told that the trams are dirty, and the conductors dirtier ; by others we are informed that the j trams are slow anil over-crowded; others tell us that the fares are too high for street traffic, and that the cars do not run suffi ciently often. There are other complaints, but these are the principle ones. Now, let us consider the subject quiet...

On the Track Towards Freedom. No. 4.—PROGRESS OR REACTION. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 30 November 1894

On the Track Towards Freedom. [By "Bmtey."] No. 4.—Progress or Reaction. It is easier for a public writer to criticise his enemies than his friends. Yet if he would be true to the highest instincts of journalism and to his own self-respect, he must not hesitate to point out serious mis takes made by his comrades if he holds that such errors are injurious to the cause of pro gress. Such I hold is the blunder made by the United Labour Party in the recent ple biscite, when by a majority of 1,291 to 994 they decided to narrow the field of the choice for future Parliamentary candidates, thus excluding many "outside Democrats," and confining their choice strictly to persons " eligible to become a member of a trades and labor society, which trades and labor society is also eligible to become affiliated with the United Trades and Labour Council." Quiz condemned the vote as a crab-like action—a step backwards. The N.D.L. organ chuckled audibly, and said that it would lead to there being two ...

Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 30 November 1894

Notes. TBt Phili.ibusteb.~1 What a funny world, we live in ! The London County Council is hastening on reform, and as a consequence a corres pondent of the Register wants to hang a few of its members; and the Country also would like to bind them to the stake, or something worse, because some body writes by the English mail— [ " matters political and social hastening us on to chaos." The latter wheezy organ of the South Australian capitalists ; plays a plaintive kind of melody on these | two strings of correspondence, and pre tends to see in the future general poverty and the gradual melting away of capital. Thank God, labor, honest labor, cannot be melted away. But I suppose tlie genial old buffer who drives the quill for monopoly prefers j a class of portwiney, white-waist-coated individuals whom members of a certain London City Committee (recently well i advertised) well represent. The Court a little while ago granted £350 for the opening expenses of the City of London school for ...

LOGIC, ACCORDING TO THE N.D.L. CHAMPION ORATORS. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—Ibis is about the style of -it:— " Pigeons aud poultry are birds useful to mankind. Therefore to injure birds is to injure mankind. Hawks, kites, and crows are birds; therefore to curtail the privileges of hawks, kites, aud crows, and otherwise interfere with their vested interests, is to injure birds, and consequently mankind, to such an extent that not only will the pigeon aud poultry business be utterly ruined, but * confidence will be shaken' to such an extent that geese will cease to lay golden eggs, and hawks and other enterprising and iudustrious pigeon fanciers will be re luctantly compelled to fly from an ungrate ful country (of course taking their capital with them) where &c., &c., &c., 'the lion roareth, and the whangdoodle niourneth for its firstborn.'"
