Current Topics. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 7 December 1894

Current Topics. Would it not be better i£ some of those great employers who advocate bursting up unionism altogether, would pause a little and ask themselves what gain will actually be derived from suck a procedure. Without unionism the present competitive system and continued mechanical advancement must end in a most disastrous conflict be tween labor and capital, or a sinking of the working classes to a proletarian level. The latter alternative will never be sub mitted to iii such an age of learning as the present. With unionism of labor, we main tain that if capital is only reasonable, and will apply its best intelligence, a solution of the most harassing industrial troubles can be solved. We say most emphatically it will pay capitalists not only to stay the r hands from bursting up unionism, but to assist in perfecting the organization, gaining the con fidence of members, and seeking by every means in their power to bring about better aud sounder commercial and industrial rela t...

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE: DECEMBER 7, 1894. HOW ARE WE AS A STATE? [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 7 December 1894

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE : DECEMBER 7, 1894. HOW ARE WE AS A STATE P Mr. Symoii tlie other day at a certain Conservative meeting entitled a lecture which he delivered, as above, and pro ceeded to answer the question asked in a manner that led many thoughtful men and women to think he was acting pro fessionally in the interest of the National Defence League. The lecture was any thing but a masterpiece, and left the impression upon many of those who heard it that Mr. Symon, whatever his talents might be in law quibbling and pleading, was totally out of his element among political questions. As a matter of fact most of the time occupied . by Mr. Symon was taken to throw dust in the eyes of his hearers, and stones at the labor and democratic party, a pastime, which, though diverting to a certain class of unreasoning Conservatives, does not reflect much credit on a mind like that which Mr. Symon may reasonally be supposed to possess. His arguments were, stupid and schoolboyish, ill ma...

Women's Column. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 7 December 1894

Women's Column. Port Adelaide can lay claim to a variety of institutions, but tlic most novel is that ! lately inaugurated by a number of women, j and named the Australian Women's Masonic Order, the objects being the email- • cipation and elevation of women. The Herald gives them its blessing, and hopes : they will continue to prosper. ! I have always based women's right to the 1 franchise on the democratic principle— ! government of the people, by the people, for the people, because I fail to see how this j principle can be applied in practical govern- j ment unless the whole, and not part, of the j people help to make it. To exclude half the \ population, that is the women, and call it ; government by the people is a contradiction of terms. " If women had the franchise they would vote conservative," is a favourite cry of the ; anti-suffragists ; but the assertion is outside the evidence of fact. Democracy sits en- ' throned in the hearts of the people. Their heads may think and pl...

THE PASTORAL BILL. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 7 December 1894

THE PASTORAL BILL. TO THK EDITOR. Sir—The speech of Sir Jenkiu Coles on this Bill is worthy, as I have no doubt it has received, the serious consideration of the labor party. The proposal to allow present lessees to surrender in order to obtain their holdings at reduced rents seems especially dangerous. I assume the labor party desires only that Crown lessees, pastoral or agricultural, should pay to the state a fair rent for their holdings. What is a fair rent ? A fair rent is one measured by the market rate for produce, leaving a sufficient margin to cover wages of labor and supervision, and profit to cover interest on capital and insurance against risk. If this definition is assented to, it is clear a fair rent could not be a fixed rent, but a rent ascertainable only by and dependent upon the average price of produce from year to year. It is clear that a rent fixed for a, long term of years when produce was exceptionally low, would not be a fair i*ent. It is clear also that to all...

People's Column. YOUNG AUSTRALIA. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 7 December 1894

People's Column. YOUNG AUSTRALIA. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—The question is often asked, " Why do not our young men take more iuterest in politics ?" The answer is not far to seek. There is no society which young men can attend, to discuss and hear discussed the questions of the day. We have, it is true, our literary societies, but it is very seldom that questions of a social or political character are there discussed, and when they are it is but seldom the young members are able to take part. What we want is a society to which no one above he age of, say, twenty-one or two shall be admitted as members, so placing all on a more equal footing and encouraging all to take part. Sir, if you will use your influence in starting such a society, I believe the cause of reform would be advanced, and it would confer a boon on the young men of the city and surroundings. I am, Sir, &c., YOUNG AUSTRALIAN.

CONCESSIONS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 7 December 1894

^CONCESSIONS. TO THE EDITOB. {Sir—We are continually hearing a cry about concessions to tlie producers, what ever that may mean. If it means to the struggling farmers, I, for one, would like to know where it comes in, and I would like Mr. Foster and others when they ask for concessions to name the class and persons, and not alwaysx'aisethecry of "producers." The concession that I refer to now is the reduction of freight to the country chaff merchants, and which I look upon as a gross piece of injustice. One chaff merchant in Adelaide has purchased 100 tons of hay near Mallala at 24s. in the stack. The carting will cost from 10s. to 15s. per ton, which queans 34s. or 39s. cost per ton. Now, what chance has hp $o compete with the chaff merchants abo^ Gawler and Freeling, who get their hay at from 20s. to 25s. per ton, and get their chaff carried for a mere song on our railways. The Commissioner says there will be no loss. That is nonsense ; and the producers, i.e., farmers, will make ...

Millionaire Methods. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 7 December 1894

Millionaire Methods. A good many particulars about the Pull man Car Company's methods were published in this country at the time of the late strike. Here is an item furnished by the Chicago Herald from the proceedings before tlie Labor Commissioners' investigation. Miss Jennie Curtis, formerly a seamstress in the repair shops at Pullman, stated her experience as a member of the committee that visited Vice President Wickes. In 1S93 she was able to earn 2 25 dols. per day. Wages had been cut, however, until on the day of the strike all she could earn was 73 cents a day. Miss Curtis stated that her father died owing the Pullman Company about 60dol. rent. "The company compelled me to apply a portion of my wages each week upon this rent," she said, "until I have paid all but 15doL I fear the company will never give ine a chance to pay this amount." The Chicago Herald gives full credit to this statement. It characterises the action of the Pullman Car Company as " seoundrelism of the worst...

Day Labor or Contract. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 7 December 1894

Day Labor or Contract. [By Cvn.] TJie great question for decision in the near future by the City Corporation is whether its manual labor shall be conducted under the contract system or by directly employed wage-eamers. To the great bulk of property owners the whole thing hinges on what will pay best, or which system will give them the maximum returns for the minimum cost. Human flesh is cheap, and there are always plenty to fill vacant places, and so long as the said property-owners and their imme diate offspring are removed from the possi bility of filling any vacancies that may occur, they will go for maximum results at minimum cost. As the vested interest National Ass. leaders are throwing tlxe whole weight of their unsweated corpulency into the scale on the side of contract and competition, there arc many who will be blindly dragged behind the asses' chariot, and declare in favour of privilege, monopoly, and sweat; but the intelligent man, who looks farther ahead, than to-day or...

WORKING WOMEN. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 7 December 1894

WORKING WOMEN. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—I'm right glad, to hear you say that you want the working women's pennies as well as those of the working men. I've been waiting ever since your paper camc out for a few words straight and direct to us women folks, and John, who brings the Herald home every Friday got mad once or twice because I didn't fuss enough about it to please him. " What's the use of being jealous, Martha," he would say, "you know very well when the Editor talks to us working men he means it for working women too." "That may be, John," I said, " but if I kissed the cat every time 'stead of you wouldn't you feel left out in the cold like, though, of course, you'd know I meant it for you?" John laughed, and said he   didn't see how Tib had anything to do with the newspaper. But you see, Sir, it's like this—women are queer critters, as you perhaps know—always a bit vain and liking to be taken notice of, and though we under stood you meant to do your best for us we w...

LANDLORDISM. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 7 December 1894

LANDLORDISM. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—Your strictures on the Churches are undoubtedly true. That they are not doing their duty to humanity is a fact as apparent it is regrettable. But is there not a danger that in our anxiety to criticise others we may possibly lose sight of the necessity for doing our own duty? Are the workers of this colony doing their duty ? It appears to me that if they took advantage of the privileges which they enjoy, the terrible system which entwines us and holds us in bondage would not last another decade. "What are unionism and unionists generally doing to abolish the primary cause of our troubles—that curse of modern civilization, private property in land? Are they not lethargic and indifferent to this question, and is not the fight against such a glaring iniquity left to a few land reformers, who generally are not members of trades unions? If this is at the bottom of our social and industrial ills (and who will deny such a self-evident truth) would it not be m...

Evolution or Revolution. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 14 December 1894

Evolution or Revolution. Sir. R. Wood, M.P., lectured before the Langhorne's Creek Literary Society on Satur day, Sth insfc. Subject—" Evolution or Revolution." After introducing himself by expressing delight at meeting so many ladies and gentlemen who were evidently taking great interest in social questions, tlie lecturer vividly traced social evolution up to the present stage, going back to tlie abuses prevalent in the early part of the present century, such as child labor in the cotton mills, employment of women in coal minss, and the wholesale displacement of hand labor by machinery. Speaking of the future for the industrial classes, Mr. Weed believes in shortening the hours of labor, and extending the blockers' system near all centres of population, so that meu could have homes of their own, occupy their slack time, and augment their earnings. Mr. Wood believes in the laud for tlie people, aud commented strongly against the further alienating of the fee simple of Crown lands. E...

Pickings from the "Country." [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 14 December 1894

Pickings from the " Country." Last week's issue of the Country was a trifle more lugubrious ill tone than usual, the " exposure" of the Stock licvh-jr evi dently having acted on the Sensitive tissues of our contemporary in a most irritating manner. The few crumbs of readable in formation we have, however, impounded for the amusement of our readers. After making a few grimaces at the women's franchise movement, telling the old old story about the " highly paid Unionist leaders" and supplying an antidote for poison, ye editor worries Roman history with a view of proving Mr. Poynton and New Soutli Wales shearers to be no better than pirates. A couluinn and a half of awful classical hokus pokus ends in a squib like fizzle of nonsensical questions about the wicked doings of them there wool clippers. A historic parallel between France in 179 and Australia 189, is hysterically written and treated by a system, of inverted reason ing, such men as Carlyle and Lord Chester field being ruthless...

Conciliation and Arbitration Proposals. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 14 December 1894

Conciliation and Arbitration Proposals. On Friday night last we had a few moment's chat with Mr. E. T. Scamniel, Secretary of the Exeter Chamber of Com merce, England. Very earnest indeed this gentlemau appeared for bringing about a permanent and profitable understanding between capital and labor. The Competition of Neighbouring Countries made it incumbent that some measures should be adopted, with a view of holding their own commercially. Various lines were being supplied to the colonies from Japau 50 per cent, under English priccs. The need, he thought, was urgent in the extreme for bringing about a better feeling between the two great industrial factors. He proposed a scheme for making conference compulsory as a means towards bringing about volun tary arbitration. The details of the scheme were somewhat extensive, but were, he thought, easily workable. He had already laid them before a number of employers and others interested, the result being a com mittee of enquiry. He also tu...
