Co-Operative Mems [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 7 December 1894

Co-Operative Mems. Tue co-operative question is taking a firm grip on the workers of all countries just noiv. In England, perhaps, the strongest efforts are noticeable in connection with active co-operation. In every trade the help-one-auother system is beiug introduced, and it is a healthy and good sign of the times undoubtedly. Sheffield Shears and Australian SiUiAKEiw.—The Sheepshearers' Society in Australia is a strong organization that has been prominently to the fore during the last few years. The Sheffield Co-operative Manufacturing Society is a less-known com bination in this country that recently wrote to the stronger society at the antipdoes re questing that they should look to the origin of the shears used by them in the pursuit of their occupation. At a meeting of the Shef field Trades Council, held last week, Mr Wild (secretary of the Wool shear Grindens' Society) announced that he had received a letter from the secretary of the Sheep shearers' Society iu Australia to t...

Late Correspondents. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 7 December 1894

Late Correspondents, " Constant Header" writes :—" I think if some better arrangements for independent runners were made in Port Adelaide the circulation of the Hp redd would receivc a considerable impetus in the right direction. I asked a runner for a Herald the other day. ' Haven't one, sir,' was the reply. As this was the third time 1 had failed to get a JJerald, after asking for it, I questioned the lads, and they very reluctantly told me they we/e not allowed ' to call' the paper. Asked why, they replied, ' they were told if they did it would spoil the sale of the other papers, and would not pay so well.' Asked why they did not carry tlieni, even if they did not cry them, the answer was—' Oh ! he only gives us three or four now, but when they first came out we used to get about three dozen each.' The expression on the lad's face stated plainly, ' See here, mister, we'd carry 'em, and cry 'em out, too, only we're not let.' I presume the ' lie' mentioned to be a news agent." [Thi...

Here and There. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 7 December 1894

Here and There. It is amusiug to hear such old de ceivers as Messrs. Toinkinson, Symon, aud Warren dramatically asking where our sturdy yeomen, are, and where that hottest independence and freedom, about which John Bull was once so proud, has cleared off to. Where, indeed ? Let us try to unearth the sturdy yeoman and the honest freedom and independence. The former, it strikes we. after being' sub jected to the cares of the gentle-minded landlords and reconstructed banks, arc to be found in the workhouses and desti tutes of Britain and the colonies. As for the latter—well, charity has pretty well killed all that ever existed outside the iuauor house. In a few more years, when competition has brought us to the extremes of wealth and poverty, inde pendence will need to be wiped out of the dictionary so far as the worker is concerned. Truth is we are getting surfeited with charity. It is hurled at the masses on every side. We arc fast hastening on to an age of pauperdom. As a matter of ...

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

Notes. [br Phillibtjstek.] Abraham Lincoln, President of tlie United States, once said :—" You may fool some of the people all t!ie time, and all of the people for -some of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time." Mr. Tomkinson, I am afraid, thinks he cau fool all of the Savings Bank depositors all of the time. But can he P That's the question. First of all he wants to make people believe that the Savings Bank, in its present state, is safer tliau the Savings Bank with a State guarantee. The man who believes this must be gone in liis " upper" with a vengeance. At any time under the present system the de positors might lose their money, but with the State at the back of the Dank, funds would be absolutely as safe as it is pos sible to imagine them to be, and while there was a Samuel Tomkinson in tlie land, or an acre of land belonging to Samuel Tomkinson .or the State, deposi tors would be safe. Perhaps Mr. Tomkinson wants to create a scare aud get Savings Ba...

Trade and Labor Unions. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 7 December 1894

Trade and Labor Unions. The tobacco-twisters held their meeting at the Selborne Hotel, and amongst the cor respondence was a request from the Bakers' Soeiety that two of their members should attend the meeting and lay before the society the position of affairs in their trade. Their request was complied with. A letter was received from the Fremantle Union, and it showed that the trade was in a good con dition. The delegates to the labor party reported that, the party had agreed to the penny subscriptions for election expenses, and members were warned to see that their names were not struck off the rolls. Mr. Hyland brought under the notice of mem bers the arbitrary nature of some of the clauses of the Licensed Victuallers Bill before Parliament, especially those clauses relating to persons being found on the pre-: mises after hours5 whether friends of the publican or not, and lie hoped that it would be struck out of the Bill.

The Church and its Duties. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 7 December 1894

The Church and its Duties. It becomes harder aii<l harder eacli day we live to define the duty of the Church. No polities, no social questions, nothing, in fact, that has the slightest relationship to every-day life is to be tolerated iu the boundaries of the Church. This seems to be the verdict of too many professing Christians, who look upon tlieir -w ork as complete in nursing their pastor, and their pastor's work as complete in nursing them. A round of preaching, liynm - singiug, bazaars, Sunday school treats, and nicely distributed kid-glove charity seeuis to be the orthodox Church's aim. Many we know to-day who will read the Bible to an outcast, and take soup, &c., to the destitute poor of their own congrega tions, but yet consider it altogether beyond their proviuce to lift their voices against the dreadful leper spot of prostitution, or to move in the remedying of other similar social evils. Is this religion ? We say no; at any rate, if it is, it is hardly...

New Australia. ? Extract from letter dated August 14 (Paraguay), from one of the Adelaide group :—" Last evening after tea mother aud I paid a visit to the piggery aud fowl farm, about half a mile away from the village. It is kept by a man named Butter worth, who came from Broken Hill. He has a wife and three children with liim, and seems a per fectly contented man. He told me this was what he had been looking for for thirty years; that he had recovered his health siuce he camc ; also he enjoys his work and his food ; that it is a grand country ; that the soil will grow anything. But he docs not believe in the ordinary method of gardening; he believes in making the ground produce its much as it will.

Pickings from the "Country." [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 7 December 1894

Pickings from the " Country." The Couniry is getting a regular riddle meree, a sphynx, ov anything else hard to understand. Or is it going mad? The latter we should think to judge by the rabid attack it weekly makes upon all aud every thing opposed to its way of thinking. It bites savagely at the Advertiser, snaps at the Register, shows its teeth at the Herald, worries the Stock Review, and in fact is as varied in the mode aud manner of its opposition as an old mongrel on a good sized ant heap. The red-eyed critter has even gone for Mr. Stead—" as a man we loathe." Method here, though in its madness, because Mr. Stead is a humanitarian who has done more to choke monopoly than any other man living. Fancy the Country talking like this:— " The absurd and ridiculous folly that a poor struggling farmer, who works sixteen hours a day for a bare starvation, should pay all the taxation, while a fat Jew, with j liis money bags and bis diamonds, should pay nothing at all, is beginning to be t...

There's, some mighty blunder, I'm beginnin' to wonder If farmers come under the rulin' of God ; It ain't right and proper that the toilin' clodhopper, Should be cheated of harvest, after tillin' the sod. Hav<l earth and hard heaven, the years they are seven, Since with children and wife I rented this farm; She came from the city, my wife, she was pretty, She has toiled for me since •with the strength of her arm. Twelve years of true wedlock, and luck at a deadlock, Till here this hot even, I look on the land, See the oats all a-dyin'—flags red, and tops dryin', Afore they are ripe, withering up as they stand. See the wheat all red-rusted, the vile varmin clustered On blade, ear, and stem, on the whole of the crop; The dread caterpiller, no corn for the mi...
