The Antwerp Dock Laborers. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 21 December 1894

The Antwerp Dock Laborers. Mr. J. H. Gore has a brief, but interest ing, article in the Forum upon " The Profit saving Labor Unions of Antwerp." From this we (Review of Reviews) gather that the dockers of Antwerp are divided into fifty Unions, called nations, each of which is a liability company, every member being a stockholder. Each Union gives bonds to abide by the regulations made by the authorities, which are made for a term of ten years. Every vessel is compelled to i employ the Union which is set apart for that particular kind of work. The officers are annually elected, and each organization makes its own by-laws. They also con tribute to the sick and orphans. The profits are divided at the end of each month among the members, regardless of the idle or employed days of each. The moment auy member of a Union places his hand upon a ship's cargo the whole Union becomes responsible for it, as well as for any damage which the ship may sustain from careless discharging. There are n...

New Australia. [Extract from letter dated September 2, Las Ovejas; written by Adelaide lady.] [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 21 December 1894

New Australia. [Extract from letter dated September 2, Las Ovejas; written ljy Adelaide lady.] My Sunday morning's housework done, I snatch a few moments before meeting our settlement children for our usual morning's singing. For a fortnight I have scarcely written to any one, being so busy unpacking, besides suffering from a cold. We bad quite a pleasant time at the singing class; gradu ally the young men are being drawn into it. At first they were very shy at coming to anything that looked like a religious ser vice, but one day a young German came and sat near us; then two or three more, and so an each morning. We use the " Songs and Solos," choosing what we think the most suitable. Sometimes the children want a few of the ranting songs they may have been used to, but we try to drop them as much as possible. Then we have the " Labor Hymn books," which have been sent to the settle ment from England. I will send you the name of the publisher—perhaps you can get some more to bring wi...

Cycling Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 21 December 1894

Cycling Notes. [By DtTNLor.] A special council meeting of the C. A.S. A. was held on Wednesday night at the N. A.C. Rooms, Mr. L. P. Lawrence presiding over a large attendance of delegates, the Exe cutive Committee, consisting of Messrs. H. Bickford, R. K. Threfall, and J. Powell being also present. Mr. A. £. Davies' appeal against the Council for having suspended bim for twelve months from membership on account of his breaking the rules of the Association was heard, and the action of the Council upheld. It was unanimously decided to hold a race meeting in February, but the members were divided as to holding a one or two day's meeting. I should like to see it held on two days, with a prize for a Two-Mile Handicap on the lines of the Austral, when, no doubt, we should have men from all the colonies competing, a treat the Adelaide public have not had for some time. The Ten-Mile Championship of Australia is likely to be run at the above meeting. The Oval is very lively at nights; the v...

The Democratic Orators. [BY "A STRANGER WITHIN YOUR GATES."] MR. JAMES LAWRENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 21 December 1894

The Democratic Orators. [Bv " A Stranger Within your Gates."] MR. JAMES LAWRENCE. " I'm a Democrat" was the terse heading | of the lecture last Sunday evening. It goes without saying that any cause depends largely upon its orators for success; for, apart from the merits or demerits of the cause itself, a ton of written argument will often fail to wiu adherents like a few burn ing words full of the life and individuality of the speaker. Too many public men neglect the old adage, " Get something to say, learn how to say it, then say it"—all of which leads up to the pleasant fact that Mr. Lawrence had something to say, and said it fairly well. This particular demo cratic orator is no longer a young man; grey beard and grey head mark the advance of old Father Time, but the eyes have not lost all their youthful fire, and there is evidently a lot of fight still left in the thin spare form of this old party warrior. A thick, rather husky voice detracts from the pleasure of listening to his...

Mrs. Zadow's Fund. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 21 December 1894

Mrs. Zadow's Fund. The following report has been presented by Mrs. Zadow to the Working Women's Trades Union, in connection with the Dis tressed Women's and Children's Fund, together with an audited balance-sheet of the receipts and expenditure for the past twelve months :—" In presenting the bal ance-sheet of the Distressed Women's and Children's Fund, carried on at Victoria square,* I beg to call attention to the work done during the past year. The fund was established at the instance of the Working Women's Trades Union and the United Trades and Labor Council, and has been generously supported by donations from the Trades Societies and the general public. By this means I have been enabled to provide work for a considerable number of women and children in distressed circumstances, as well as providing over 100 situations for persons as general servants, nurse girls, farm hands, &c. Out of 88 ladies who made application for domestic servants, 75 were suited free of charge. I...

Pickings from the "Country." [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 21 December 1894

Pickings from the " Country." [By Spook.] The Gauntry grows more and more start lirigly funny and reckless every week it adds to its age. Last issue the editor gravely told his readers to hurry up and send in orders for extra copies of the Christmas number. He promises some "short stories.'"' If they prove to be anything like the long stories the Country has been telling for weeks past some amusement, even for Christmas week, may be discovered between its covers. But fancy extra copies of the Country J One of the first tit-bits I notice is the hurrying on the stage of Mr. Gladstone with a view of proving that the people, or " the mobj" as old Harry calls 'em, are a real bad lot. Many, many years ago the G.O.M. got riled at a rowdy meeting, aud said something nasty to his hearers ; hence the action of ye editor in stirring up the hokus pokus to adorn a political tale. A few pages further on I may mention that the late English Premier is called " that inischevious old man." Really, Ha...

Democratic Societies. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 21 December 1894

Democratic Societies. Angas Plains Literaky Society.—On Wednesday, before the members of the above Society, Mr. T. Ryane, of Milang, delivered an address on "Capital Punish ment, and why it should be Abolished." He began, by affirming that it was intro duced Before the time the Book of Leviticus was written, when the world was young, and not nearly so enlightened as at present. Since then some nations held to the practice, while others discarded it. He said it played a very useful part at first, and all things considered it suited the times fairly well, but that, he affirmed, was no reason why it would do now. In his opinion it was one of the worst laws we now had in force. Instances were given to "show how badly it acted, how innocent persons were often hung for deeds they never committed, and finally he drew a picture of the demoralizing effect it had on society. He advocated in place of a life for a life, im prisonment for long or short terms, as the exigencies of the case demand...

How Royalty Weeps and Aristocrats Mourn. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 21 December 1894

How Royalty Weeps and Aristocrats Mourn. ! The nation was plunged in grief ! So the cables said when the Czar died, but as a matter of fact tears and mourning are turned on at Court, much.-in the same i fashion as the water is. Speaking about the artifical grief for the Czar, Reynold's says :— " It must puzzle the scribe not a little to keep a straight face while he is penning the copy which shall make a select circle of courtiers bow their heads in artificial woe. Every detail lias to be studied in connection with this function. The omission of a detail as to a buckle, or a feather, might cause heart-burnings in St. Petersburg and fury at Berlin. In the first place, the dates for beginning and ending the woe are very precise. The ' Courts must all start together. The news reached London on Friday, but no outbreak of official lamentation was allowed until Sunday, so that there should be no rivalry in the matter. Any ambitious Rachel who started weeping on Saturday would have been de...

Christmas Tide in England. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 21 December 1894

Christmas Tide in England. 'Tis Christmas time, and all looks gay, For plenty strews the festive way ; The Hail is decked, above, below, With holly bough and mistletoe. Good cheer is seen upon the board, While song and story is outpoured ; Within the doors 'tis warm and nice, And lovely looks the snow and ice That covers all the country side, From curtained windows, "deep and wide, What matter 'bout the price of coals, The liewing rates, the miners' doles, 'Tis Christmas time, and lass and lad Must not be made morose and sad. A glorious time it is indeed To those who're not in urgent need, The elders in old customs find Enough to clieer the flagging mind; Some root their joy in temperateness And others in a wild excess, While all alike bend low the knee To frolic and hilarity. The children, too, have rosy times, With funny tales and pantomimes, Tho' best of all for them to see Is yonder laden Christmas tree ; Full freedom in the world of play They have, to hold high holiday, To eat,...

The Death of Little Bill. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 21 December 1894

The Death of Little Bill. It was Christmas Eve. The night was dark and stormy, and not a ray was to !>e aeen piercing the heavy pall that overhung the great modern Babylon. One or two ominous mournful gusts of wind soughed through the almost deserted streets, as the sleet swept like an avenging spirit over the poverty-stricken district of Litnehouse. The lamp-lights shuddered as though their flames even were not proof against the biting in fluence of the sharp east wind, and the little pools of muddy fetid water, that apparently were too thick to freeze, S3emed to shiver in the wintiy blast that swept over them; in fact, all the surroundings testified to tbe chill spirit of midnight desolation. And yet outside the sad and sorrowful environments of winter's bitter season, there wis a weird and wonderful beauty In the snow-clad streets which was positively fasci nating, the beautiful, dazzling, white-clad streets, the fantastic wreathings and fes toons, and the overhanging masses w...

Miss Spence and the Woman's Suffrage Victory. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 21 December 1894

Miss Spence and the Woman's Suffrage Victory. Miss C. H. Spence, the veteran advocate of effective voting, having just returned to her home in South Australia after a lectur ing tour through Australia, America, and England, the women's suffragists in Adelaide gave her a hearty public welcome at the Cafe de Paris, Rundle-street, on Monday evening, and made a telling demonstration in favor of the Suffrage Bill which was then being wrestled for in Committee by Dr. Cockbnrn and his colleagues in the Assembly. There was a crowded attendance, quite overshadowing the little group of " white natives" who, at the other side of the Cafe corridor, were listening to Mr. Samuel Tomkinson's story of how he crossed from Victoria in the brave days of old—some 43 years ago. Mrs. Nicholls, wbo is Aus tralian President of the Woman's Christian Temperance Union, which gratuitously did most of the canvassing for the 11,250 signa tures to the, petition in favor of the Bill, occupied the chair, and spoke ...

Irish Poverty. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 21 December 1894

Irish Poverty. The Advertiser of November 20, says:— " Mr. and Mrs. David Murray have got back to London after a pleasant tour in the North of Ireland. They enjoyed their trip greatly, though Mr. Murray was shocked at the terrible poverty of the country." _ Strangers to Ireland reading tins will con elude that it is a poverty-stricken country, unpleasant to live in, and that wealth and luxury are utterly unknown. Let the Herald readers see another picture, and then think hard. Belfast, the capital of the North, has a population of 230,000, and has developed in importance with amazing rapidity, due to the energy of its people. It is the centre of the great linen trade, and its mills being very numerous in the city is descried from an elevation. It inspires the observer with wonder to see the great long chimneys in hundreds vomiting forth volumes of smoke. At every corner the buzz of machinery is heard, and the music of industry here sends forth her Babel sounds. It has a Queen's Coll...

A traveller gives the following account of an Irisli herd's cottage:—"It was dark inside, owing to the defective light afforded by a small window, and the cloud of smoke which found a means of egress only through the doorway; but I was able to see that the living room was about JO ft. by 10 ft.; that the floor wag of mud, and had may holes > that the furniture consisted of a deal table, a few rickety chairs and stools, and a * dresser' with a medley array of odd and damaged cups, saucers, and mugs, and that divided from the living room by a screen of mud or timber, was a section of the house, without a window, in winch the family— husband, wife, and three children—slept, while there were no out-offices, and not even a patch of ground attached."

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE : DECEMBER 21, 1894. A MERRY CHRISTMAS. Before we are able to get to press next "week Christmas Day will have come aud gone, consequently we have made this number our Christinas number, and in the orthodox and customary fashion wish our readers a merry and pleasant Christmas. The festival, we know, cannot be welcomed by some as a time to make merry owing to surrounding circumstances of a more or less depressing character, still the fact that we honestly wish all to participate in some measure the privileges of the season, may tend to give consolation ] and comfort to the weariest of our fellows. Not a home there will be,! we hope, in South Australia on j Christmas Day without some kind of Christmas cheer. Therein we differ from the mother country. Thousands and tens of thousands will suffer the pangs of hunger there, and in addi tion the pains of a wintry season. Would to God that this were not so. The fact remains, however, and we must all of us make up ...
