The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE: DECEMBER 14, 1894. SIGNS OF BETTER TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 14 December 1894

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE : DECEMBER 14, 1894. SIGNS OF BETTER TIMES. Notwithstanding the trade depression in most of the colonies, and the general unrest iu industrial circles, there are not wanting signs of a " clearing up" and better days in store. With a little tact, a little sacrifice, and a little patience, we believe a great many misunderstandings and wrongs can be faced about, and relegated to the past. The high hand will have to be lowered, though, and the spirit of reason shown if we are to reap the benefits from the crop of good seed sown during the last few days. And surely the possibilities of permanent prosperity and peace are worth a lot of unbending. The fighting attitude may be all very well froui the heroic side, but the stern necessities of human life offer none the less scope for the heroic in the nature that can hold aloof from party strife, and find its best satisfaction in holding out the olive branch. God knows we have as a representative organ of the masse...

People's Column. LABOR AND CO-OPERATION. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 14 December 1894

People's Column. LABOR AND CO-OPERATION. TO THE EDITOR. " To foe or not to he, tliat is tbe question ; Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer The stings and arrows of outrageous fortune, Or take arms against a sea of trouble, And by opposing end them.—Hamlet. It is clear to any student of social economy that co-operation is and must be pushed to the front as a temporary relief to the suffer ings of the workers. But co-operation can only exist in propor tion as fair dealing of man ■with man creates mutual trust. Unless the requirements of society are equitably met, and a compromise maintained with the conflicting and antagonist element of society, eo-opcratiou on an advanced scale will never appear. But self-sacrifice must only be made to the extent that it will be beneficial to humanity. Co-operation is the means to the end, and that end is happiness—not egoistic, but universal happiness. If we take tbe cm-tains of selfishness, dogmas, and superstitions irem the windows of the mi...

Current Topics. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 14 December 1894

Current Topics. Aktkr the New Year we intend to ''re construct" the columns of our little paper, and thereby make our reading matter lighter and brighter; or, iu other words, present our politics—for politics we must have—iu a more chatty and interesting style. Some more advertisements of a most pro fitable character coming in. Messrs. Malcolm Reid, Donaldson, Andrews, & Co., McLean, 1'igg, & Co., and Shierlaw are among our latest patrons. We look upon it as a good omen that sucli premier firms of the city are prepared to support our paper. It proves that what we have said lias beeu said with reason, and suggests to us a possibility of getting an easier settlement of difficulties in the future. Of course, the loud-toned "agitators" of our party will not forget that the very best dynamite and blasting materials are to be got at Messrs. McLean's, as per business ad. But honestly, gentlemen, we don't want revolution or anything like it; Ave want prosperity to our fair l...

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

3HE |iATJl PLEBESCITE. TO TIIE EDITOR. Sir—I heartily agree with tbe opinions ex pressed in the last issue of the Weekly Herald, in the ai*ticles referring to the sur prising result of the plebiscite of the U.L.P. My first thought 011 hearing the result of the voting was,an enemy hath done this," and, indeed, the N.Dft. could not have done it hpttqv. It is j(«|sjfc'what they al^ other i supporters 01 monopoly, privilege, and class interests have been playing for all along, I namely, to split up, if possible, the great democratic party, consist&gofworkers with ! head and hand, whether "they happen to receive tbeir wages directly out of the results I of their labor, or through the hands of ein- ■ ployers. "Divide and conquer"—that is the notion of our opponents, and some of those we counted as friends seem desirous of bringing about the result our foes desire. ! You say in another article :—" One of our situations as a democratic organ is to try and marshal all classes of demo...

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

PASTORAL QUESTION. TO THE EDITOR. Your correspondent " Beware3'says that every one desires to see the large area of our pastoral country put to a profitable use. In that desire I entirely concur, but I alto gether disagree with him when he says that the lessee can now obtain concessions. That they can abandon we have too much evi dence ofj unfortunately, and unless some relief is granted, there will be many more who will abandon their runs. There is a good deal in what your correspondent says —that to fix rent for a long term of years when produce is exceptionally low, would not be a fair rent. But surely your corre spondent does not think a rent which was determined upon when produce was excep tionally high, backed up by the auction system, not fair rent. It is such rents that the pastoralists are complaining about, and the only redress they can obtain under existing legislation is the right to abandon tljese leases, with any improvements they may hare made upon same, and to contin...

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

THE RECENT PLEBISCITE. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—I may say at tbe commencement that I aui pleased with tbe decision arrived at, and am exceedingly surprised that" Bluey," in last week's Herald, should have written as he did on this subject. I have followed with keen interest the different struggles of the labor party in their endeavours to obtain representation in our Legislature, aud I am sure I am expressing the opinion of scores of workers in the country when I say that the thing which has given the greatest satisfaction to us is that the men who were chosen to fight for the seats in Parliment were taken directly from the ranks of the toilers, the wage-earners, the working men, in the ordinary acceptation of the term ; aye, taken in all cases from the shop, the yard, the wharf, aud other places where they were plying their daily avoca tions. And, Sir, you will permit me to say that, in my opinion, nothing contributed more to their success than the fact that this was done. And the reason...

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

LATE SHOPPING. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—'I notice in your issue of the 7t!i inst. a few remarks made about the wives of working men trading in drapers' shops on Saturday nights. Sir, I think you have made a step in the right direction by show ing this evil up. Not only in drapers', but in butchers' shops as v ell. What do we see '■—wives of men who leave off work at 1 o'clock Saturdays coming in for their meat at 9 and 10 o'clock at night. And what can be done to remedy this ? Why let the Sec retary of every society impress it on the minds of their members, and they (the members) see that their wives do then shopping in daylight. Do all their business in Union shops, and by so doing help their fellow men and themselves as well, iustead of, as it were, making a rod for their owu backs. Wishing you every success with your paper, which I hope and tirmly believe has come to stay. I am, Sir, &c., W. BAKBEll.

Agnes Wabnitz, a Woman of the People. A MARTYR TO TRUTH. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 21 December 1894

Agnes Wafonitz, a Woman of the People. A MARTYR TO TRUTH. The city of Berlin was oil the 2nd Sep- ] tember the scene of a unique oration and demonstration. About 50,000 people crowded the cemetery, and 1,000 wreaths were deposited In the grave of a proletarian—a workwoman, a factory girl—Agnes Wab nitz. The associated workers of Berlin in their solidarity showed how they honor their illustrious dead. They loved her on account of her devoted life of self-sacrifice, and mourn her pathetic and heroic death. She died a martyr in the cause of peaceful reform—driven to death by petty chicanery and persecution of a capitalistic Govern ment, who have nothing but persecution for the aspiration of the worker. It some of the minds of those 50,000 proletarians could be laid open, what bitter resolves and resentment would they reveal. Can it be ■ wondered that some high-strung Individual swears to take vengeance on a society which permits such things. Here is the story in short;—Agnes Wab nitz w...

MARTHA BOWLES ON WOMEN SUFFRAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 21 December 1894

MARTHA BOWLES ON WOMEN SUFFRAGE. Sir—John and I have been talking a good deal this week about Parliament and the Franchise Bill. John says he is neutral on women's suffrage, but its my firm conviction if the Bill die n't get through he'd say "hooray !" to himself, when he thought I wasn't listening. " Well, Martha, the opposition is pretty strong against your side of the Bill," he said at tea the other evening, trying to look neutral. " But, John, we've got all the good sense on our side, the other has only the non sense," I said. " 1 don't know about that, Martha, the opposition has got those clever chaps, Grainger and Solomon" " John!" I interrupted, " no sensible person expects any man called Solomon to be great on female emancipation; you've only got to read your bible to see that tradi tion is dead against it; besides, this par ticular Solomon has lived half his life in the Northern Territory, where most of the women are black, and get poor measure in the matter of rights; and ...

TO THE EDITOR. Sir—I was very pleased with the letter of " Young Australia," and I hope you will be able to further liis views. I want, now, to get the ear of our young girl friends. They, too, can help. If they don't mind taking a hint from a motherly old body I would say, economise in the matter of personal ex penses (but for this horrid want of space I would go into details.) Let them set up a sort of " self-denial" spell, give the savings to buying reform literature; push it about among friends, and foes, too, for that matter. I would ask them, too, to get round their young brothers to sell the Herald for us. "Many a little makes a muckle," you know. My namesake, "Martha," is a woman after my own heart. I would like to make her acquaintance. May you, Sir, have many more such helpers is the wish of a WORKING WOMAN.

Women's Column. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 21 December 1894

Women's Column. We are able to inform our correspondent, M. Bowles, who stated that efforts were being made in London to give seating accommodation to shop assistants, that some time ago the Duchess of Teck refused to patronise a well-known West-end milliner aud dressmaker unless the assistants were allowed seats while at work. Needless to say the boon was at once granted, and many other fashionable modistes at once followed suit. The Girl of Fourteen.—At fourteen a girl has her fits of giggling at trifles, and the sound of her bubbling and irrepressive laughter seems now and then to a severe taste like " the crackling of thorns under a pot," spoken of by the Psalmist. But were you not once fourteen, and have you for gotten how little it took to make you laugh ; how easily you were amused and diverted ? Life has taken so much out of you that your laughter is often neighbour to your tears, in these graver years. Let the little maiden by all means have a room of her own, if you can, a...

The Port Adelaide Boxing Day Meeting should be very successful, as the number of non-contents is very small indeed. In the Port Adelaide Stakes the full number have accepted, and the winner may be picked from Madoe, Beltana, or Successor. In the Hurdles Sir George has gone out. If the top weight could be relied on I would not go further, but expect to see either Jack Spratt or Blac brock first past the post. In the Christmas Handicap (one ; mile) I like Hasty, The Rector, or Rose dale. In the Steeplechase Iona, 10 st. 101b., still remains in, though Pure Grit will not see the starter. I fancy the chances of Iona, Wilpena, and Lady Boinba, the last named for preference. The Auction Stakes may go to Germaine, and in the Yatala Handicap (5 furlongs) the winner should be picked from Bronte, Wahine, or La Grippe. Mr. A. Von Doussa, the Secretar...
