Current Topics. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 30 November 1894

Current Topics. One of the most outrageous slanders ever offered on -womenfolk is tbat persistently uttered by the anti-woman suflragist, viz., that the women do not want to vote. This is equivalent to saying the other sex is satisfied with present legislation, and that woman does not want to liave any hand in making the laws of the country, which govern her own life, aud that of each of her children. Slander, indeed i A party complains to us about the bad time tram horses have in Adelaide. We have a lively recollection of riding in a crowded car a few nights ago, when the poor brutes of horses had to be whipped into the collar from King William-street to Eugel's Corner, where our ride terminated. But the Directoi's of the companies appear to be soulless people, who only look upon hides and hoofs as something to knock dividends out of. Most of them, we expect, will, how ever, sign their names to the petition for securing Bible-reading in State schools. Tkuth is stranger thau fiction...

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE: NOVEMBER 30, 1894. ARB WE GOING TO HAVE SOCIALISM IN OUR TIME? [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 30 November 1894

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE : NOVEMBER 30, 1894. ARB WE GOING TO HAVE SOCIALISM IN OUR TIME P We hope that the above heading to this article will not frighten the op ponents of socialism away, as we have something particular to say to them more especially. Our purpose, let it be under stood, is not to force the socialistic doetrine on to any person* or to dogmatise overbearingly in our remarks, but rather to reasonably arrive at some logical conclusion in connection with the subject which we intend to treat. It will not be disputed, we think, that a majority of the opponents of socialism believe that the times do not call for any radical change in our social and political pro cedure. They are willing to admit that things are a bit out of joint, but the cause, they maintain, is to be found in the industrial unrest and distraction of confidence brought about by the de mands of the labor party. The liberty of the individual, according to their belief, must be regarded as sacred where t...

£3,000,000 Invested. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 30 November 1894

£3,000,000 Invested. Hugh McCalmont, of Abbey Lauds (Antrim), seven years ago left his nephew £3,000,000 to be invested for seveu years. On Tuesday last that nephew, Lieutenant McCalmont, (the owner of Isinglass) came into the principal and accumulations amounting to not niucli less than £4,000,000. Money breeds money, truly ! At the last Council meeting the desira bility of giving Corporation workmen a week's holiday annually was discussed, but it was asserted that to do so would entail too much cost. Of course it would, if all the men were allowed off at once. But very little additional burden would be placed on the ratepayer if the men were allowed an annual spell, a few at a time.

In the Crucible. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 30 November 1894

In the Crucible. What is the matter with the worltl to day ? The matter is that business is stag nant, and depression noticeable on eveiy hand. The reason is not to be found in any de crease in the earth's fruitfulness, but in the consuming powers of the people being so narrowed that it has become necessary to limit the supply. Thus producer and con sumer chafe and fret under the forced restriction, _ And who is it, then, that governs the pro ducing and consuming powers of the world ? Why, the world's money monopolists, for they hokl the means of exchange (money) hoarded up, and only so far as they distri bute that exchange can the consumption and production go on. " Ila !" says some capitalistic wiseacre, j "there's the rub. You cannot do without, the capitalist, after all.' To which we say ! " bunkum." We could do without the capitalist very well, or let us say mono polist. The thing we cannot do without is the capital, or means of exchange. If an earthquake were to swallow up eve...

LABOR CANDIDATE AND QUALIFICATIONS. TO THE EDITOR, Sir—How on eartn ao wie uiemuers or ttie Unions, who voted on the Conservative side in the recent plebiscite, expect to carry any reforms while they are so narrow-minded themselves ? Why, the very thing we are all striving for is to make society respect a man because he is a mm, antl not because he wears fine clothes, or even because he works with a hammer. The very men who are on our side for " truth and justice," and are prepared for self-sacrifice and hard work, simply because they love freedom and right, are ,tlie very men our Conservative brethren would shut out from representing them. What is more, these are the men that monopoly really fears. What a lot of educational work has still to be done! Broadmindedness is bound to prevail in the end, but it is a pity that reform should be hindered by some of our brothers " cutting off their nose to spite their face." 1 am, bir, «c., Let Theee be Light.

A Reply. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 30 November 1894

A Reply. A week or two ago the scrub poet of the Country offiec let himself go on the subject of " Poynton and his Lambs"—necessary to state this because so few people read the Country. A "lamb" replies as follows:— Although I'm not much of a poet, I don't feel inclined to let pass Such ill-natured rant, if I know it. So I'll answer the National Ass. I'll hope that next time he's snake-headed, As Poynton won't give up the ghost, To remember he's not so be "Ned"ed As to foolishly run from his post. The Country Ass. few, Sir, believe it, No matter how loud it may bray ; And few persons now ever read it, Though sent to them gratis, they say. It may be the Editor's mad, Sir, And thinks we're demented as well } Or maybe his logic is bad, Sir, For somehow his paper don't sell» Not one of us " lambs" ever buy it, You see, Sir, we think it's too thin.

HEAVY WHEAT BAGS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 30 November 1894

HEAVY WHEAT BAGS. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—Ail article appears in your last issue on the above subject* and also a letter signed " Fairplay." In the article no par ticular locality is mentioned, but I am in formed that wheat lumping does not provide continuous work even during the wheat season, and the average earnings, instead of being more than sufficient to maintain a family, is rather the reverse, even to those who enjoy a monopoly. The remarks of "Fairplay" are written with the evident desire of obtaining a fairer distribution of this work among the people of Port Augusta, but, Sir, although a laudable design, there would still be the same amount of labor unemployed; that is take the season through. What is wanted, Sir, is more work, and if it depended upon you we should get it, but although you cannot do this I desire to tVank you for your efforts on behalf of ns laborers. I am, Sir, &e., WORKER.

For Working Women. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 30 November 1894

For Working Women. A man and woman and their five children were recently brought up at the Brentford Police Court, England, by a sergeant of police, who said he found them in a ditch. They were all fast asleep. The night was bitterly cold. The children, who were lying huddled up together under a bush, had nothing over them. When he woke them up they trembled violently with the cold. The baby was in an old perambulator with a lot of old dirty rags under it, and *' covered" with an old pocket-handkerchief. All five were in a shocking state of neglect. He took the prisoners to the station, placed the benumbed little ones before the fire, and gave theiH=same hot tea.- They seemed to be suffering severely from the exposure. They were on the tramp looking for work. Bitter cry of a work girl and her sister— " After sitting and sweating to finish off five dozen pairs of gloves between both of U3, which took us a day to do, we were given 3d. each. This is not one farthing an hour. The forewo...

PROFESSIONALISM ON OUR RAILWAYS. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—In further reply to " M.," I have nothing farther to say except tlxat I simply gave him and tbe public the benefit of a few of the actual facts of the case from my own knowledge, and would just like to point out that engineers never undertake to attend to " merely nominal duties and responsibili ties also, that their professional qualifica tions are as well defined, and as much a subject for public regulation as those of any of the other learned professions, and that their subordinates and those to whom they are themselves accountable can always rely on receiving fair, proper, and honorable treatment at their hands, where duty has been faithfully attended to. 1 am, Sir, &c., VERAX.

MR. WOOD'S MOTION AND ITS RELATION TO THE FARMERS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 30 November 1894

3IR. WOOD'S MOTION AND ITS RELATION TO THE FARMERS. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—The management, condition, &c., of tbe S.A. Railways has of late been tlie sub ject of much correspondence, and certainly not without cause. The motion brought before Parliament by that true worker's friend (Mr. Wood) is of far more importance than most people consider it. For instance, what business man would employ a manager to manage his business and absolutely forbid his other employes to inform liiui of any mismanagement on the part of such manager; but would rather pay another (perhaps an intimate friend of the manager) a large sum to enquire into his actions and report on same ? Certainly, you will say, j no man outside an asylum. Yet this is precisely what we, the taxpayers of S.A., are doing at the present time. We, through our Government, employ three Railway Commissioner?, give them absolute power to do as they please, and forbid any of their subordinates, under pain of dismissal, to inform us ...

MUNICIPAL DUTIES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 30 November 1894

MUNICIPAL DUTIES. 20 THE EDITOR. Sir—Municipal organisation is a co operative society for tbe supply of common wants. It being sucli all parties concerned should be treated with equity and justice. Tbe police discharge the duty of defence which were formally left to the individual. The common sewers are in the hands of the State to carry away impurities in lieu of each householder. For the promotion of health, parks and reserves have been pro vided. The traras and the lighting of our city, as a public necessity, instead of being monopolised by private Companies for gain, will ultimately have to be provided by the public for the public. The London County Council, being alive to the necessities of the times, Lave made laws to minimize the practise of sweating by inserting a clause iu contracts of a " minimum wage for maximum hours," which is a system of protection which 110 freetrader could object to, and fair to employer aud employe.

STATE BANK AND PRIVATE BANKERS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 30 November 1894

STATE BANK AND PRIVATE BANKERS. TO THE EDITOB. " Then Samuel told the people the manner of the kingdom, and wrote it in a book." —Sam. x., 25. History repeats itself. We find by re ferring to the Evening Journal of the 17th instant, under the heading of "The Savings Bank,7' Samuel Tomkinson writes : —" It is possible for the Government to aim a deadly blow," So far I agree with him ; it does mean a deadly blow at the capita- ! listic system—a State bank. He thinks that j State functionaries who have no financial training, introducing a State Bank Bill means ruin to the colony. I think the Treasurer will be able to refute that. Our recent experience of banks in Australia shows them to be incompetent, or why re construct? But it is hardly necessary to say much for the Bill when it is condemned by Samuel Tomkinson. I will endeavour to show how railways, waterworks, &c., could [ be built without it costing one single pound in interest or cash. The principles of poli tical ecouoi...

Usury. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 7 December 1894

Usury. In olden clays the usurer had to cany on his nefarious trade in secret, without the assis tance of hired legislators, brass door-plates, and Ananias editorials. In the Middle Ages Lombards \vho traded in percentage for a proiit were hunted down like ■wild dogs as public enemies. Edward I. banged 280 Jew " bankers" in London alone. To-day, a Hebrew tirni of financiers occupy for all prac tical purposes Edward's throne. What gave strength to the reformation movement in Europe was the growth of usury uuder the protection of the church. Martin Luther in Germany, and Wycldiffe in EiigUyid, both condemned money lending for interest as immoral, unchristian, and worthy of the devil. Luther once said,' 'And since we break on the wheel, and behead highwaymen, murderers, and housebreakers, how much more ought we to hunt down, curse, and behead all usurers." Even to these days, in primitive communities, wheva ike human brain has not been poisoned by false doctrines, the trader iu money i...
