The Late E. J. Hiscock. [By a comkadli.l Mr. JJj. J. Hiscock, who passed over to the great majority at 7 o'clock last Sunday morning, was bom near Gawler, April, 1868, and after finishing his primary education became a teacher in our State schools, where his powers of explanation, his patience towards others, and his inherent love of humanity, soon made him a favorite with all j [ by whom he was surrounded. When Harry S. Taylor was compelled to give up the mental worry incident to ener getic reform work, Mr. Hiscock was the one who offered himself, if considered worthy to take up the arduous task of Secretary to the Single Tax League, and correspondent for kindred institutions when he edited the little Pioneer. Mr. J. Medway'Day found in him, when starting and running the Voice, an able co worker in humanity's cause, and the skill with which he carried on that fearless out spoken journal, when Mr. Day accepted the larger field in Sydney, needs no chronicling here. Honest, open-heart...

People's Column. COMPULSORY VACCINATION. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 21 December 1894

People's Column. COMPULSORY VACCINATION, TO THE EDITOR. Sir—As your paper is ringing with the cry "Reform, reform," from the humani tarian aspect, I hope, with your permission through it, to stir up the manhood and womanhood of this fair clime, and show them what rank injustice and inhuman treatment the infantile portion of our population are subjected to in the cruel institution of compulsory vaccination. I may state here that the compulsory law is not in force in New South Wales; In New Zealand it is a dead letter, and in Tasmania it has been repealed. I pray South Aus tralia will soon follow suit. Does it not seem monstrous, Sir, that the body of a healthy infant should be disfigured, subjected to fever, and considerable constitutional disturbances which is the effect in even favourable instances of vaccination, while many are injured for life, and some, not a few either, lose life itself. Two of Adelaide's prominent public men ! have lost their darlings through it this year.' Af...

LANDLORDISM. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 21 December 1894

LANDLORDISM. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—A letter in your issue of December 7, signed " Unionist," draws attention to the evil effects of landlordism, to which you append the following editorial footnote:— "There are other evils beside private ownership of land, and it is our place to work for the overthrow of them all." I entirely endorse your statement. But, Sir, would it not be well to say, if you believe as I do, that the greatest of them all is landlordism, or private property in public laud values. As an avowed land nationalist I affirm that the ethical aspect of this momentous and far-reaching subject is almost entirely overlooked by the South Australian de mocracy. As illustrating my contention, note the discussion in Parliament on the land taxation proposals which seems to have been dealt with merely as a question of increasing the revenue. We can't endure any increase in fiscal burdens whilst every department of pro ductive trade is languishing. Depend upon it, Sir, that private ap...

CIRCULATING OUR CONVICTIONS. TO TUJ5 EDITOR. Sir—1'brough the courtesy of au old Port Adelaide friend I have been enabled to read three copies of your new democratic weekly. Its merits in the cause of all labor I clearly placed before the Fremantlc Lumpers' lliiiou, with the result that our society has decided to become annual subscribers to the extent of three copies, the same to be placed on the Union table for the perusal of all its members. I am not certain as yet whether our Secretary lias forwarded cheque for same, but if not it is, or soon v ill be, on the rodjd. I will write him to-night notifying him of your address. As a democrat I hold no doubtful opinion, but am perfectly assured that by the circu lation of the WerMy Herald here in W. A. it will arouse the many workers from their long and continued political lethargy. Coming as I have from the advance guard of South Australia in all reforms, I am woe fully surprised at the conservative and plutocratic element, which I se...

How the Church Wags. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 28 December 1894

How the Church Wags. It is time that all honest Christian teachers wake up to the fact that the masses are becoming more and more dissatisfied with the attitude of the Church towards social questions. That there has been a maximum of teaching with a minimum of practice in connection with the religious movement for many centuries past cannot be doubted, otherwise the terrible state of society which exists to-day would never have been ushered in. At any rate the Church is strong enough, even now, to work a speedy and mighty reform on the side of justice and right, and it remains to be seen whether, by using such power, she is pre pared to work on the side of the masses, and by exemplary application of the gospel truths, win them to Christly allegiance, or whether, by continuing to hold a brief for mammon, she will yet further alieuate tliem from the privileges and services of religious assembly. One thing the ministers of religion cannot afford to do, and that is ignore the continued ...

Freeland. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 28 December 1894

Freeland. [By Dr. Teleodor Hertzka.] ( Continued.) lhe fullest publicity is lusisted upon, so tliat the profits iu any department are known to a farthiug, and by means of this mobility of labor the average value of a labor hour is much the same throughout the State, slowly increasing, however, as fresh inventions and discoveries are made. That is to say, the earnings of the average worker throughout Freelaud are practically the same per hour, no matter at what occu pation he may be engaged, whereas excep tional ability will be paid for at a higher rate. The right of everybody to enter whatsoever trade he pleases, and the pos session by the State of all means of produc tion, form the central point of the Freeland constitution. This differs from the orthodox socialistic programme, in which the State or local council decides each man's avocation. Of course, there are innumerable other departures from our present customs, but I wish particularly to nate two. A State bank—not a lending n...

Women's Column. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—lour paragraph about a working mail spending liis wick's wages in a pub!;e house on Saturday hits a nail ou the head that I have often hnmmered at myself. Once or twice I hit, my tlunn'i instead of the nail, hut I didii L mind that. Whenever a man starts out to make a traly great fool of himself, Sir. he invariably makes a straight track for the nearest public-house ; and of all the men who enter there the one who gets nighest the top of fooldom is the working man who goes in at 2 o'clock on Saturday afternoon with his head on his shoulders and his wages in his pocket, and comes out (if he is not thrown out) at 11 o'clock on Saturday night with his head under his arm and his wages lett behind in the landlord's till; and I see samples of such fools. Sir, nearly every Saturday from my kitcheu window. Fools? They are worse, for fools very often cannot help being such, but these working men are slaves greater than ever wore shackles or picked cotton un...
