Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 14 December 1894

Notes. fBv Phillibuster.1 I want to say something on " charity," all the more so since tjie Register the other day went out of its wa.y to hurl a number of insinuations and falsehoods at that party which is doing, and has done, more for true social reform than all the mere alms-giving relief people put together. The difference is the one section is satisfied to dole irregular charity out to chronic pauperdom, while the other, in addition to giving relief, works day and night to extinguish the necessity for relief. In effect the writer of the article referred to declares that those who are so wedded to the democratic charter are not usually found among the devoted men and women who minister to the wants of the sick and oppressed. Am I speak ing too warmly when I say that senti ment is utterly false ? I think not. It is the great host of the poor in city and country who help the poor—in mind and body. The mere organized offering of the well-to-do is as a drop in the ocean of aid given...

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 14 December 1894

TO TIIE EDITOR. Sir—I liked the remarks of "A.G.M." in the Herald last week, and they've set me thinking of another way iu which working women could help feacli other if we would only keep our eyes and hearts open, and agree to act together. Think for a moment, Sir, of the unnecessary torture inflicted oil women who serve in shops by having to stand—stand all day long, though at odd times, when not serving, they could just as well sit, and in that way rest their aching feet and backs, if their employers would only provide seats for that purpose. It isn't only the long working tout the long standing as well that causes the "pale faces and dead beat" appearance of this class of workiug women, who are victims of a custom as cruel as it is unnecessary. Much, too, could be said of the more direct injury caused to women's health by this constant standiug, but I know, Sir, that your space is limited. We all know the cut-and-dried objections offered by the employers—" Make the girls lazy; i...

Freeland. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 14 December 1894

Freeland. [Br Dr. Theodob Hertzka.] Some three centuries ago the science of political economy commenced with the enquiry—"How is it that, notwithstanding the enormous increase in our capacity for producing wealth, we dre not corre spondingly wealthy?" lliis question, in my opinion, underlies the science of political economy, although it is frequently lost sight of, and the lapse of time only seems to ao< centuate the difficulty of answering it. We all know how the working men have fought against the introduction of labor-saving machinery, how they still fight against it, and how it frequently results in driving men out of employment. Yes, we must acknow ledge that we are far from making the best use of the inventive talent of the age. Our present social institutions must be somehow at fault, and most of ns feel this. Can we put our fingers upon the fault? Has any one yet given a correct solution of the problem ? Certainly there has been no lack of effort. All kinds of sch...

" Labor Legislation of New Zealand." LECTURE BY THE HON. W. P. REEVES. A lecture under tlie ausp:ces of the United Trades and Labor Council was delivered in the Central Hall by the Hon. W. P. Reeves (New Zealand Minister of Labor and Educa tion) on " Labor Legislation of New Zea land," on Friday evening last. There was a first-class attendance, including a nuniber of members of Parliament. The President of the Trades and Labor Council (Mr. W. M. Green) was in the chair. The lecturer, who was enthusiastically received, remarked that there was a great resemblance between the Democratic and Conservative parties of South Australia and New Zealand. He had watched the struggle here, "which was much the same as that in his own country. He wanted to Take Exception* to Two Things which had appeared lu the daily papers. One was an important matter concerning his country, the other an unimportant matter touching himself. When he landed in Sydney a short time back he found himself in the turmoi...

Straight Out Talk. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 14 December 1894

Straight Out Talk. One of the hardest tasks in life is to <lo right. Let a mail mark out the path of honesty and righteousness, and pursue it, aud the chances are the only staunch sup porter and eueourager he will get will be his own conscience. The array against the man who seeks to do good is apalling iu its strength, and it is not to be wondered at that he feels faint and weary, and like throwing up tlie sponge occasionally. Iu the first place the whole force of monopoly and trading business is against such a man, because he is essentially hostile to the system which nourishes monopoly, and is day by day making it impossible to prosper in business of any kind unless one is prepared to lie —lie continu ally. It is a veritable age of lies we live in. Again, unless a man is prepared to do right according to the hard aud fast rules of denominationalism, lie must not expect much sympathy from the pulpit. If he shuns all denominations, and takes his own way, he becomes an ob...

On the Track Towards Freedom. No. 8.—MISS SPENCE AND EFFECTIVE VOTING." [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 14 December 1894

On the Track Towards Freedom. [By " Bluey."] No. S.—Miss Spejtce and Effective Voting." Can any good tiling come out of College Park ? or, indeed, out of South Australia ? I am led to ask the question, because no notice seems as yet to" have been taken in j the Adelaide dailies of Miss 0. H. Spence's | recent pamphlet containing a report of her address at River House, Chelsea, the home of Mrs. Westlake, the daughter of the late Thomas Hare, the founder of the system of effective voting. A copy of this report has been placed in my hands, and as Miss Spence is expected in the German mail steamer next week, I thought a few lines as j to the progress of the movemeut would be welcomed by Herald readers. Perhaps the dailies will wake to the same fact when they hear that among the company present to hear Miss Spence's address were quite a bevy of titled ladies and gentlemen, includ ing Lord Rothschild, the Right Hon. A. J. Balfour, M.P., Leonard Courtney, M.P,, j Sir John Lubbock, Sir John...

WAS IT QUITE AN ACCIDENT? TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 14 December 1894

WAS IT QUITE AN ACCIDENT TO THE EDITOK. Sir—Or was it a singular coincidence, or were both the reporters of the daily journals at the same instant of time stricken by Providence, with a sudden total deaf ness, when the Hon. Mr. Reeves, of New Zealand, made one of his most important statements to the audience in the Central Hall on Friday evening, the 7th. inst ? I did not take that statemeilt down in writing, but in effect it was as follows :—" The recent victories obtained by the liberal party in New Zealand were due to the combined efforts of all the liberal, labor, and demo cratic organizations and individuals in the colony. They could not have been gained by the Trades and Labor Unions, or any other body alone." It is queer that in the leading article of next day's Advertiser the Editor does give a shadowy indication that he had heard something of the kind, though his reporter was deaf (in sympathy, perhaps, with the fiegusterr man.) The wpprenxio Vfiri is often a more dangerous...

Women's Column. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 14 December 1894

Women's Column. Says the Cent ury : — " Ten years ago the United States census revealed over 500,000 women engaged iu agricultural labor, 900,000 were beuding over wash tubs, or scrubbing floors on their hands and knees, 62,000 more were reported as common day laborers, and of the 500,000 at work in corn ami cotton fields 22,000 were 00 yearn of age and over. Fifty-six thousand of the sex assumed to be lacking in physical force were practical farmers and plauters, and 15*2,000 were toiling in cotton, silk, and woollen mills. Whether or no hoeing, digging, and tending machines be more or less arduous than wearing a uni form and doing duty on street crossings is au open question." It is about time women had a say iu politics. Says an exchange :—" There is a special kind of female who haunts auction sales in the hope of being able to buy things at about a third of their value, not I'eally be cause she is in want of the articles, butsimply because they're cheap. The husbands have a hard...

QUEER JUSTICE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 14 December 1894

QUEER JUSTICE. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—The capitalistic Press of New South Walea, Victoria, ami South Australia are fairly revelliiig in the severe sentences passed by Chief Justice Darley upou the Momba aud Kallara shearers. Admitting that these meu during times of excitement in a disturbed portion of the country did not exactly control the exuberance of their feelings, which were strongly provoked by the action of "scab" laborers, the remarks of His Honor when sentencing the prisoners were far more calculated to provoke a breach of the peaee than were the actions of the men. It would appear from the Judge's sensational statements that the outlying portions of the co'ouies are kept in a con tinual state of lawlessness and insurrection owing to the conduct of an organized baud of Union laborers. Wliereas, as a matter of fact, in a majority of instances it is well known that the Unionists depreciate any extreme measures, and not uu frequently are goaded to commit lawless acts by the actio...

I am glad to hear that H. E. Gully, who met with an accident wh'le training, is progressing favorably towards recovery. The Adelaide racing contingent have returned from Melbourne, and most of them complain of bad. luck with falls, &e., and. it is very evident that the track on which the Austral is run is not the most suitable.

CULPABLE CARELESSNESS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 14 December 1894

CULPABLE CARELESSNESS. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—Almost every day the daily journals chronicle deaths by drowning, many (I might say most) of which are preventable. The paragraphs are full of twaddling com miseration, and no doubt are considered good "copy" to make the rather dreary pages interesting to those to whom gossip is as the breath of their nostrils, but never a common sense suggestion do I see whereby the shockiug waste of life might be at least diminished. No bcdty trap lias yet been in vented as effective as the ordinary under ground water tank, and older cliildreu, and even adults, are occasionally drowned in them ; all through want of a small grain of " hoss sense" or through sheer indifference and indolence. Of course, no one thinks that his little one is going to tumble in, and, as for the others, " let their parents look after them." A triangle formed of three thick deal boards nailed together, nearly the diameter of the inside of the tank, and left floating therein, would...
