Pickings from the "Country." [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 28 December 1894
Pickings from the " Country." [By Spook.] I have been considerably amused and even nonplussed at many of the statements made in the Country; but I confess a little pick ing " On the reasonableness of private ownership in land," which among other trifles I annexed last week, has given me no small amount of mental exercise. After descanting on the glorious freedom that man is allowed with regard to appropriating the air, the scribe of the Country goes on as follows :—" A man, while walking along the sea shore, picks up a nugget of gold. He encloses it within his hand because he has the desire and the power to do so. He encloses one portion of nature within another portion. Another man does exactly the same thing with a portion of waste moorland. He encloses within a circle of wooden or iron palings instead of within a circle of bones, muscles, and flesh that go to make up a j hand. Where is the difference in principle between these two cases? Where is the difference in principle betwe...
Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 28 December 1894
Notes. —— I PBt Phillibttster.] There's one piece of legislation I feel thankful for, and that is the granting of the franchise to 80,000 adult South Aus tralian women. As a colony we shall benefit bv that measure more than can be easily imagined. Ho wonder the insin cere and unclean politician is squirming, ho wonder that the brewer is uneasy— those 80,000 votes are going to dig a political graveyard, in which such men j as Ward and Solomon will find a long rest from the toils and spoils ot Parka- , mentary office, and m which *ke privi leges of monopoly will be accorded decent burial. When the nations enfranchise the most humane section of their communities we may expect something better than free dom of contract and a livmg wage for the toiling masses. The women folk will bring" to the polling-booth some of the arguments thrashed out in the domestic arena and the hard school of practical economy, and as time goes by will teach the breadwinner himself that club and taproom politic...
Successful Co-Operation. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 28 December 1894
Successful Co-Operation. A few years ago the cabinetmakers of Milan refused to do any more fighting with their employers and sweaters, and began to work on co-operation lines. Shares taken up by four hundred or so members scattered over twenty six villages, at £2 a ■ piece, would provide a sjiall sum for starting; business would add to that. They set promptly about their work, and in May, 1891, saw them installed in their own ware house. Things from the first were put on a thorough business footing. Good wood was insisted upon, and promptly paid for in cash. Every piece of goods entering the warehouse is at once valued by experts, and the worker received half down on the spot, and the balance not later than three months after sale. The result was, they made more than 50 per cent, profit on the shares, and notwithstanding the high profits earned by their members, they could manage to sell at moderate prices. Here co-operation is; it is there on a small scale only, but none the less e...

The Mystery of an Opal Ring. A NEW YEAR'S EVE GHOST STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 28 December 1894
The Mystery of an Opal Ring. A NEW YEAR'S EVE GHOST STORY. _ It was New Year's Eve, and we were sitting round the smoking-room fire at H Hall, and wlien the liauds of the clock showed us that a brief half-hour was all that was left of the Old Year, there came a pause, every one preferring his own thoughts to conversation. Not every one, though, for Charley Selw3rn sat for five minutes with a very depressed couuteuauce, and then burst forth with " I wish some of you fellows would talk, and not sit staring into the fire like a set of corpses. If I put out the lights perhaps this wouldn't be a bad time for agliost talk," and suiting the action to the words, he jumped up and extinguished all the candles, and then went 011—" I'm sure some of you are thinking about them now, especially Gordon, who mia;ht have lived among them all his life by the look of his face; and, besides, he has on that horrid opal ring, which I hate, aud which is glittering now as if it sheltered within it a devil o...
Among the Poor. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 28 December 1894
Among the Poor. I had—to use a nautical term—lost my rudder, and was wandering about the streets and alleys which abound in that squalid, in sanitary and begrimed quarter bounded on one side by the Thames and the docks, and on the other by the Commercial and West India Dock Roads. Suddenly I was brought to a staudsiill by a knot of individuals, two of whom were engaged in tying up a large bundle of cloth which had fallen from the shoulders of a man who was sitting in an exhausted state on the kerb. " What is the matter with him—has he fainted ?" I asked. " No, 'e ain't fainted ; leastways, not like a woman does, but he caved in a-cause 'e hadn't got no strength fer want of a good meal. Why, jest you lift that ere load, guv'ner, an' then 'magine what it must o' beeu for a chap like that to carry all the way from the city a day like this 'ere." " I hope you are not hurt," I said, ad dressing the man as he made his way through the crowd, that had now congre gated. " Thank you, no ; for...
"HE CARETH." [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 28 December 1894
"HE CARETH." " Nobody cares," so a poor girl said, As her baud to her head she pressed, "There's none would care if I were dead' And she sank on the kerb to rest. A terrible life, Lord, Thou dost know For the poor and friendless oiie, From noon till night to stitch and sew, Till life and its wants are done. Nobody cares ! and she sank asleep, Weary and wan and white : Nobody cares ! a sleep so deep In the keen and frosty night, That never again she woke below— For the soul to its long rest fled— Away where she need no more to sew For a portion of daily bread. Nobody kuows ! Yes ! somebody knows And somebody careth, too, When the heart of man so callous grows It cares not for me and you ; P'rliaps we may fail to understand The way that His care is shown, He careth tho' for the least in the land Who're numbered amongst his own.
A Beer Peer. MARRIAGE OF HIS DAUGHTER. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 28 December 1894
A Beer Peer. MARRIAGE OF HIS DAUGHTER. The Uamaru Mail is an outspoken journal.. In a recent article it thus discoursed 011 the marriage of Lord Burton's daughter :— Lord Burton's only child — the Hon. Nellie Lisa Bass—recently figured as the bride in a weddiug, the glitter of which appears to have dazzled society to its core, and sent fashionable circles into uncon trollable eestaeies. Lord Burton is a Beer Peer. He brews Bass' XXX, Whilst his Peer name is Lord Burton, his Beer name is Bass, the same as his daughter's. He is one of those whose elevation to the peerage has given to that august body the jeering title of the Beerage. There are, however, a great many brewers in Britain who are not raised to the Beerage ; that is because they do not brew enough, and have not amassed so much wealth as to be entitled to figure as aristo crats. It is only in poetry that " A man's a man for a' that." The requirements of a system of government tempered by aristo cracy are such that Friends M...

Railway Experts. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 28 December 1894
Railway Experts. What is a resident engineer 1 Tis a problem too deep to solve By the average human brain, I fear, Though primed with a d^ep resolve. Do they sit iu their chairs with a long cigar, While rivers of red wine flow, Or find where the faults in our railways are— That isn't so hard ta know. Those who toil in the broiling heat To keep our lines in repair, If they ever an R.E. chance to meet, They drop their picks and stare. He fs simply a luxury that we know For which we have to pay, And one which will far too burdensome grow, At no very distant day. And what does a district foremau do, 'Neatli the sway of those fancy powers 1 He is rushing and toiling his whole length through, For a term of unnumbered hours. And then he must toil in his office at night, With a patient and earliest care, Through the piles of rubbish those idiots write, Lest a grain of sense be there. For every item he must take stock Correctly from day to day, No worn-out flag or no broken lock Must ever ha...
How the Wind Blows. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 28 December 1894
How the Wind Blows. The land questions was never more alive in the old laud than at present. In Glasgow the following circular is being sent to muni cipal voters :—" The land values of Glasgow amount to close upon £"2,000,000 per annum. These enormous values are not the creation of the landowners, but are solely due to the presence and industry of the community as a whole. They should, therefore, be taken in taxation for the upkeep of the city and for public purposes generally. These land values, as such, contribute at present nothing to the rates, which amount to close upon £600,000 per annum. So that the industry and property of the Glasgow people alone are taxed for the upkeep of the city's government to the extent of £600,000 per annum, and also pay the landowners for the bare use of the land £2,000,000 per annum. Why should land values be exempt from any contribution to the rates ? The Council have discussed the question, and have appointed a committee of inquiry. When the repo...

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE: DECEMBER 28, 1894. A HAPPY NEW YEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 28 December 1894
The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE : DECEMBER 28, 1894. A HAPPY NEW YEAR. The cynical and hard-fisted money grubbing individual often jeers at tlie commonplace greetings which, are bandied about at this period of the year, but there are still many who delight to honour old customs and tradi tions by the exchange of seasonable courtesies. And it is well for the world that it is so. The year for most men is a time to look forward to with anything but rejoicing, and consequently anything like a break where the woriy and trouble may be shaken off for a few hours, and gladness put on, must be regarded as a welcome privilege. " A happy New Tear" to some people may appear a meaningless sentiment. Still, we doubt if there are many of even the poorest, in the colonies at any rate, who do not fee1 the better for a shake of the hand and the wish expressed that they may experi ence future good times. At any rate, with all the warmth and earnestness which we are capable of we wish our readers " a brigh...

News Condensed. The year 1S95 will see type-setting machinery in nearly every office in Chicago. Never mind the compositors ! Sydney train employes get 35s. weekly now. Adelaide Companies . said to be thinking of bringing their employes down a peg. Sweating tradesmen who were found to be "contracting" for postman's coats at 7 id. each in Victoria have been fined £10 by the Government. The Nelson ministry (Q.) are tenacious. They have been numerically defeated once and morally twice on party division, yet they hang on like grim death. The casting vote of tlie speaker is their only foothold. _ But Queensland ministers who can give a coercion Bill such as that of '94 are not over particular. English athletic clubs openly giving support to tlie labor party. Henry Hill recently smashed a plate glass window in Sydney, and waited quietly for tlie arrival of the man in blue to run him in. He preferred gaol with hard labor to starving. Nine member of the Victorian Assembly who bitterly oppos...
Current Topics. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 28 December 1894
Current Topics. A couri-ii of weeks ago an enthusiastic friend of tlic Herald donated a .sovereign towards the paper's working expenses, and last week another friend stepped in with a similar present. There is no doubt that our little organ's circle of admirers is gradually widening. At the International Congress of Hygiene aud Demography at Buda Pesth (says the London■ Daily Chronicle) Dr. Felix*, of Brussels, according to the Lancet, laid it down emphatically that in large factories arid mines the hours of labor should not exceed eight per day. Civilized man, he declared, was entitled to eight hours' sleep at night— day sleep being less effective as a strength restorer—and he had the right to take his ineals -without undue and indecent haste, as well as to enjoy sufficient leisure for exercise and the cultivation of his tastes and intelligence. He should further have time to do his duty towards society and to his family and Ids country. If every doctor and health officer would giv...
