Workmen's Colonies. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 10 January 1894
Workmen's Colonies* Referring to the institutions in Germany known aa workmen's colonies, Mr. Drage, in his report on the German Labour Question, saya that they owe their establishment to the efforts made by Pastor von Bodelschwingh, between 1870 and 1880, to arouse general interest in favour of some provision for workmen out of employment. In 1882 the first colony, that of Wilhelmsdorf, near Bielefeld, was fonnded, and the number quickly grew until by the end of 1892 it had reached 25, which were scattered about in different parts of the German Empire. These colonies are supported by private benevolence j they are governed on certain general principles agreed upon by the directors, and the history of one is to a great extent the history of all. Able bodied working men who are out of employment find admission without distinction of creed, nor are discharged prisoners refused, since the aim of the founders of the colonies ib the reclamation of the inmates and the revival in them of t...

A STEP TOWARDS COLLECTIVISM. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 10 January 1894
A STEP TOTTABDS COLLECTIVISM. Commenting upon the arrangement reacted between delegates of the English colliery - ovTEers and delegates of the miner*, by which the sixteen weeks' strike was ended, the Lon don Spectator notes the appearance of I two facts. It will be remembered that the duration of the conflict was sixteen weeks ; that the industry of the whole country, so largely dependent on aregular supply of coal, was threatened ; that coal went up to famine prices ; that great privations were endured fey householders everywhere, especially by the poorer class ; that factories were closing or working half-time, and railways dif charging hands by the hundred ; that, though the miners were starving, they betrayed no intention to surrender, and tbafe a Bimilar un compromising spirit was manifested, on the employers' side. There waa a deadlock : the men averred that they could not live if the wage was reduced ; the employers insisted that resumption of work at the old wage, burdened ...

JJXD A. JDuI.O X JDJ Jla W »b. [Fkoh our Various Coerhspondents.] GRETA. ADDRESS BT ME. J. CONNOLLY. Mr. Connolly addressed a meeting of the general electors last night in Page's hall. Mr. McEwan (Mayor) occupied the. chair. The Chairman made a few remarks, and then introduced the speaker. jiir. uonnouy saia ne naacome uerore cnem again to contest at the next election. He was defeated last year by Mr. Scobie, owing, in his opinion, to the fact that that gentleman did not get a proper hearing from the electors of Greta. He knew both Mr. Gould and Mr. Burnett, who were going to contest this electorate, and he hoped they would both have fair play. He did not believe in the abolition of payment of members, but would be in favour of a reduction, from the Governor down-, wards. With regard to the victuallers' compensa tion, he thought that it should not have been brought before the House just; yet. He was a protectionist, but while there was so much toadyism in the House neither a f reetr...
NEWCASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 10 January 1894
NEWCASTLE. The weather broke yesterday evening, and rain has been falling (at times pretty severely) since then. The air is consequently much cooler, and blankets had to be freely used during the night. This morning showers continue, but heavy clouds still hang over our heads. The question of the water supply to the dairies which was raised at the Municipal Council meeting seems to have caused quite a stir amongst the various dealers in tho chalk and water mixture. Not so much however is the water ia doubt, but the real gist of the rising is that an erroneous assertion waa made concerning the want of inspection. From nil tho available information which we can obtain we are led to believe that these dniries are periodically and regularly iasfooted, but we are more concerned that the direction in which inspectors should move is in ascertaining how much water is added to make the milk so thin. If a limit were fixed as to quantity and not quality of the aqua impura perhaps all would be ...

ITEMS OF INTEREST. [ORIGINAL AND SELECTED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 10 January 1894
ITEMS OF iOTEKEST. [Original and Selected.] a oyaney morning paper a tew days ago raptur ously told its readers that the change which has lately been effected in the character and colour of the puggarees worn by the members of the Per manent Artillery, has triven officers and mpn n. distingue appearance, which has evoked the admira tion of all who have noticed the change. That meanB, if it means anything, that the officers and mon look like the common or feather-bed variety o soldiers to those who have not noticed the alteration in their head-dress, which alceration after all cannot be a very remarkable affair or it would needs be observed by all. The new puggaree may be a very fine thing or it may not, but what the officers apparently require most of all is a little ability Bhared among thorn, with new facings, 6tripas and borders. It is only the other day a vacant commission in the Permanent Artillery attracted bis candidates, of whom four failed most egregiously, and another who ...
