CRICKET. ADELAIDE OVAL. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 October 1894

Ckicket. Adelaide Oval. Oct. 20—Hindmarsh v. Norwood. " N. Adelaide v. S. Adelaide. Nov. 9, 10, 12, 13—England v. South Australia. Nov. 30, Dec. 1, 3, 4—Victoria v. South Australia. Kensington Oval. Oct. 20 —Austral v. Port Adelaide. Last Saturday, in stormy "weather, the S. A. Tattersalls Meeting was held. Although the elements were dead against out-door pleasure, the sport-loving community stuck to their posts, or rather umbrellas, and saw the day out. The racing on the whole was good, and no accidents happened, though the going was greasy enough in all faith after the Selling Race had been run. __ _ The first day of the V.A.T.C. at Caul field was very successful, splendid weather and a large attendance being the order of things. Of the racing I will not express an opinion, leaving criticism to those on the spot. But they were all goers; Carnage was out to win, Paris was out to win, so was Lady Trenton; good gallopers when they mean it this trio. The Caulfield Stakes was won by Ha...

WHAT WILL BECOME OF LONDON? [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 October 1894

WHAT WILL BECOME OF LONDON ? The end of London's greatness must come at some future date, and whether it will come within the days of the great-great grandchildren of these who read this article, or of their far more remote descendants, no man dare venture to declare with any reasonable amount of truth. Various theories Have been propounded from-time to time to the effect that London's doom is sealed with the exhaustion of our coal supply. But this view I do not hold, for the very simple reason that long before the last shavelful of this particular fuel comes to the surface, more tliau one method of utilising the power which exists around us will have been adopted for industrial purposes. The time must arrive when the metro polis will cease to encroach upon the country that surrounds it, as she is now doing, and when the country will begin to drive back the towii. Then will the houses, now so rapidly and badly erected, crumble and fall, and the ploughshare turn the soil where the su...

NOT TO BE CAUGHT WITH CHAFF. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 October 1894

NOT TO BE CAUGHT WITH CHAFF. "J. Parry," of Blyth, sends the follow ing .—" We had the Hons. J. J. Duncan and J. Warren up here on Friday evening last criticizing the labour members. They are in great trouble about the progressive land tax, and they are trying to frighten the farmers by telling them it is only the thin end of the wedge to single tax. The eight-hours system in railway employ is troubling them. Mr. Duncan said we are losing £26,000 a year by it. One farmer asked them what about the three million we have to pay to the squatters. Mr. Warren said it would not amount to more than half of three million. Mr. Warren said some women knew no more about politics than a chair. I think it would be a good thing if two good men could, come up here and ^ive us the other side." [Perhaps a couple of the labour members will volunteer to go up and present the "other side" to the farmers of Blyth.— Ed.]

UNDER THE CRUSHER. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 October 1894

UNDER THE CRUSHER. Something like 450,000 miners in the old country were recently reduced 10 per cent. I in tlieir wages. This means that about J £80,000 was knocked off the purchasing power of these men weekly, or £4,160,000 I annually. These are a few facts that trades , men, who are depending on the purchasing | power of the community, will do well to ponder over. * * * # Now for a little further curiosity. En quiry concerning the possible, or" let us say probable, abuse of these monetary trifles filched from the workers, may not be out of placeIt is not hard to imagine the £80,000 | deposited in Bank coffers to the credit of the great capitalist. Here then his £80,000 begets at 4 per cent. £3,200 the first year, i The next year he gets interest on capital and first year's interest.

Drama and Music. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 October 1894

Drama and Music. Entertainments in Adelaide are almost centred in the Brougli and Boucicault's company of comedians, now playing at the Theatre Royal with remarkable success. Although professedly comedians, yet society plays, like " The Second Mrs. Tanqueray," they can produce on a scale of excellence never exceeded in this colony. On Saturday evening " The Bauble Shop" was staged, followed by "Aunt Jack," " Lady Windenner's Fan," " A Night Off," "Sowing the Wind," "The Sports man," "She Stoops to Conquer," and " Mobe." Those who wish to avoid crowding in at the last moment will do well to book seats early, as there is every prospect of full houses to the end of the company's engagement. It has often been said "Adelaide folks only enjoy extremes ; they glory in a comic opera, they gush over the latest thing in imported preachers." However, it is quite evident they also cau thoroughly appreciate a high class dramatic company, more especially when it includes such conscientious artist...

Primary Man. WHEN, WHERE, AND WHAT WAS HE? [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 October 1894

Primary Man. When, Where, and What was He One of the most profound trans-Altantii investigators in anthropology, Dr. Dauiel Brrntoil, lias reviewed the evidences in re the above queries, and concludes as fol lows :— " Everything is special. The whole species is made up of special individuals ; and their evolution is multiform. Scientific inen are agreed that the human race did in some way arise from some inferior animal form—not necessarily monkeys. The transit:on may not have been gradual, but abrupt—evolu tion per solium. We do not find the " mis sing link it is still missing ; it may be for ever missing. There are different opinions as to how many early men there were. There may have been several distiuct centres, but science as well as orthodoxy points towards the conclusion that all men originated from one primal pair living in one definite place. When did these early men appear ? A per plexing question. We used to be told that it was 6,000 years ago; but we now know that there...

Odds and Ends. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 October 1894

Odds and Ends. The question of economy is now staring Unionists in the face. We must have more uioney for co-operative purposes, and less money must be drained off in capitalistic channels. The unemployed " Committee" busy taking notes. Hon. G. C. Hawker round and about again. Mr. Riddocli and his " clawss" will be pleased. Edwin Holmes, aged sixty, run over by traincar. Bishop Webber (Church of England) says:—"Expenditure on western stations is cut down to the finest point, to increase English and Scotch dividends.

HOW HIGH WILL A KITE FLY? [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 October 1894

HOW HIGH WILL A KITE FLY ? It is one of tlie most difficult undertakings imaginable to even approximately estimate the height of a kite above the earth. This is on account of the fact that objects floating in the air seem to be farther away than they really are. It may be safely said that 1,S00 feet is the maximum altitude that can possibly be attained by a single kite. A kite flying at the height mentioned will appear, even to a conservative observer, to be nearly, if not quite, a half-mile above the surface of the earth, but a careful measure ment of the string and its angle will quickly prove that it could not have been more than a fourth of a mile above the ground. Ordinarily, a kite will go no higher, e\ en if more string be paid out; this is because the wind depresses the cord, and causes the kite to really recede when it appears to rise. It has been said that it is possible to arrange several kites in such a manner that they will reach a higher altitude than it is possible to...

People's Column. [Letters must be condensed, and to the point.] "WEEKLY HERALD." TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 October 1894

People's Column. [Letters must- be condensed, and, to the point.] "WEEKLY HERALD." TO THE EDITOR. Sir — Taking it for granted that the Herald is to be a democratic newspaper, perhaps it will not be out of place for me to observe that the problem of land national isation was first introduced to the reading public of Soutli Australia by an able review of "Progress and Poverty," which appeared in the Adelaide Observer some fourteen years ago. Shortly afterwards the firancial, and especially the ethica', aspect of the question was placed before the citizens in a course of lectures delivered by Mr. J. Z. Sellar, which were liberally reported io the llwjbitvr and Advertiser. Following these lectures the subject was well discussed by leading articles and letters in the Register. I much regret to remark that the Pioneer (South Australian) news paper has recently altered its tone iu reference to land nationalisation. Substantial, though slow, progress was being made, and many adherents secur...

MAX O'RELL ON AUSTRALIAN NEWSPAPERS. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 October 1894

MAX O'RELL ON AUSTRALIAN NEWSPAPERS. Tlie gentle and silvern-tongued Blowit, or to give him his borrowed title, Max O'Etell, lias gone for the Australian Press in a manner which has made the editorial hair stand oa end. Of course Blowit is a playful kind of a chappie, and requires to be taken •with a morsel of salt. However, let us see what the genial Max has made history. "There is very little difference in the newspapers of the different colonies ; if there be any, it appeared to me to lie in the fact that New South Wales journals are the most advanced in the elements of literary good and evil; while the newspapers in Victoria, Queensland, and South Australia are stunted and stereotyped models of British journalism run to seed and senility. As regards the underlying policies which control and guide the outpourings of wrath in each particular newsraggery, none of the journals I have alluded to have any policy other than those involved iu the Cabalistic legend—£. S. 1). Ail able-bod...

Round and About. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 October 1894

Round and About. [br -Momus.] Saturday night, or rather it was, for I may say I am writing this little uairative a few days later. Office work had luuig rather heavily ou my hands, so after putting a spodge of gum on the usual notice—" Back in an hour"—and applying it like a blister to the front door panel, I sauntered down to my sixpenny dining-room. Just a modicum of tea I promised myself as I took up my old seat, but the seductive toues of the smart little waitress beguiled me into ! a more solid repast. Stewed steak, steak and onions, corn beef, veal and kidney pie what a variety for that much-despised " tanner." " Veal and kidney," delicious appet ser, was my choice, and I was soon deep in the mysteries of brown gravy and flakey crust. Hardly had I got half a dozen moutlifuls down Avlien a familiar sound smote my ears. No mistaking it, the tones were Blobbs'. Yes, Blobbs, like another Micawber, had turned up, and as the thoughts of a possible parasitical retainer flashed throug...

PARLIAMENTARIANS DISSECTED. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 October 1894

PARLIAMENTARIANS DISSECTED. The Host. G. C. Hawker axd Me. George Riddoch.—Mr. Riddoch will per haps pardon us for holding over our critical opinions till this late hour, but the fact is we had none too mucli space to spare last week, and, moreover, preferred to think well before venturing to censure. However, our mind is now fully made up. The true political character of Mr. Uiddoch -was inadvertently exposed last week. He has only tabled two resolutions during tbe time he has sat iu the Assembly. Both of these were to the direct advantage of the .pastoral class to which he belonged. The first, which he tabled last year, was _ in favour of assistance to the meat-preserving industry. It had particular relation to the South-East, iu which his estate is situated. It would have benefited Mr. Riddoch as much, if not more, than any pastoralist in South Australia, This consideration would have induced most men to exhibit^ some reluctance in moving. But Mr. Riddoch had no such scruples. As...

ENGLISH FACTORY INSPECTORS ON OVERTIME. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 October 1894

ENGLISH FACTORY" INSPEC TORS ON OVERTIME. One of tlie greatest anomalies of our pre sent industrial system is that whilst thou sands of able-bodied and willing workers are doomed to submit to enforced idleness, i many who are fortunate enough to obtain j employment are compelled to work exces sively long hours, direct physical evils being caused thereby. It is satisfactory, there fore, to note that throughout Great Britain the question of overtime is receiving con spicuous attention by social reformers generally, and by the Factory Department, under the control of the Home Secretary. In the annual i-eport of the Chief Iuspector of Factories for 1S93, several of the inspec tors plead for the reduction of legalized overtime, whilst others are in favour of its j total abolition, except in cases where perish-1 able goods would be involved arises. The j following are a few extracts from the reports i handed in by district inspectors to the Chief Inspector on the subject:—Mr. Cramp! says—...

On the Track Towards Freedom. No. 2. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 October 1894

On the Track Towards Freedom. [By "Blttiy."] No. 2. Iii my last letter I said the landowner was the basic factor in the social problem, and I promised to show how he works. But the fact is, strictly speaking, he never works at all ! He gets other people to work for him, or he allows them to work for themselves on his land, and then takes a large proportion of the produce of their labour. In one sense, therefore, to show how the landlord works would be like writing the celebrated chapter on " Snakss in Ireland," which began and ended with the words, " There are no snake3 in Ire land !" The landowner pure and simple never works, and never intends to work ; and yet the mystery is that in all civilized lands he fares sumptuously every day, and lie and his lady friends are often clothed in purple and fine linen, and live amid a state of luxury and magnificence to which even King Solomon was a stranger. But there is one sense in which the land owner works; that is, he " works the oracle,"...

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE: OCTOBER 19, 1894. TAXING THE ABSENTEE. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 October 1894

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE : OCTOBER 19, 1894. TAXING THE ABSENTEE. The question of taxing the absentee landlords is not confined to Australia alone, for in nearly every country where the drain of absenteeism is being felt, an uumistakeable demand has gone up from the people to tax these individuals for the special ad vantages they derive from the State. And what in the name of common fairness could be more just? In South Australia we have something like half a score proprietors, who own immense estates, landed and other wise, and who draw fabulous incomes, comparatively speaking, therefrom. They take the fruits of labour from the country in bard cash and spend it elsewhere, and so indirectly im poverish the trade and industrial enterprise of the community. Cer tainly we have no right to dictate to any man as to where he shall reside, but as taxpayers and citizens we have a perfect right to expect every fellow participant in Governmental favours atid privileges to pay an equable pr...
