The Wandering Jew. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 28 December 1894
The Wandering Jew. The sanctum door was ajar, and I was sitting resting my tired head in my hands, and pondering deeply over a whole heap of correspondence—the accumulation of three months. The new year was within cooey ing distance, and I wanted to dish the con tributory waifs and strays up without hurt ing the feelings of any one—a most difficult matter when the variety and quantity were considered. Most of it was of the " advice free-gratis" order, and if an inclination on my part to take something less than half of it had been acted upon, the shareholders of the Herald would have been—in the lan guage of the Spring poet—"gone coons." What to do ? that was the question. After a more than usually hard squeeze of that portion of the skull, where the cere brum is supposed to be located, I heard a rustling sound, which caused me to look up, when lo ! there was the ancient and historic Israelite. Motioning him to a broken backed office chair, I bade him make him self at home, which he...
In the Crucible. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 28 December 1894
In the Crucible. Storekeeper No. 1.—Well, times are right down bad. I'm just oil to bed-rock prices, and some lines I'm selling cost. Somehow, though, the people do not buy. There must be some trutli in what the capitalists say, that the labor party are the cause of the bad times. Storekeeper No. 2.—Yes. there's some thing wrong. I've got my stuff ticketed as low as it can be sold without direct bank ruptcy, yet there is very little selling. People look longingly at the goods, but just pass on. What is the world coming to ? Storekeeper No. 1.—Still, I cannot see how the labor people are to blame after all. The worst they have done or are doing is to try and get better wages and plenty of -work. Now, it seems to me that they are right there, for after all unless work and wages are plentiful tradesmen cannot expect to do much. Storekeeper No. 2.—No ; as you say, if we are to get prosperous times the workers must have work and wages. The tradesmen benefit very little, even when money i...
KEEP IT BEFORE THE PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 28 December 1894
KEEP JT BEFORE THE PEOPLE. Kucp it before the people — That the.earth was made for man ! That flowers were strewn, And fruits were grown, To bless ami never to bau ; That sun and rain, And corn and grain, Are yours and mine, my brother ! Free gifts from heaven, And freely given, To one as well as another ! Keep if. before the people— That man is the image of God ; His limbs or soul Ye may not control With shackle or shame or rod ; We may not be sold For silver and gold : Neither you nor I, my brother ! Freedom was given By God from heaven, To one as well as another. Keep it before the people— That famine and crime and woe For ever abide, Still side by side With luxury's dazzling show ; That Lazarus crawls From Dives' hall, And starves at his gate, my brother ! Yet life was given By God from heaven, To one as well as another ! Keep it before the people— That the labourer claims his meed; That right of soil And the right to toil, From spur and bridle freed ; The right to bear And the ...

Melting Iron by Water. WHAT ELECTRICITY CAN DO WHEN IT TRIES. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 28 December 1894
Melting Iron by Water. What Electricity Can do When Tries. It is a matter of interesting .speculation what fate would hi ve befallen the man who, four hundred years ago, ventured to assert that he could heat a bar of iron to a white heat by plunging it into a bucket of cold water. A stout stake, i\ strong cord, and a generous bundle of firewood, with the services of a father of the church, would probably have bepn his fate. If such a man had actually performed the miraculous feat, he might have experienced the previous torture of the rack, the boot airl thumbscrew until he was fain to confess that lie had worked his magic by the aid of j the evil one. If one of tlic chiefs of the Inquisition could be materialised for a brief hour lie might see this same wonder per formed any day at Boston, U.S.A. While llie forging of metals is not quite : the latest application of the marvellous science of electricity, it is sufficiently new to attract the attention of all who are in- | terested in...

People's Column. "THE WEEKLY HERALD." TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 28 December 1894
People's Column. "THE WEEKLY HERALD." TO THE EDITOR. Sir—It seems very strange to me that more Unionists do not support the Herald. I know many who never take it, not because they, cannot afford it, because their beer score -weekly in many cases would buy a couple of hundred copies. I am afraid they have not yet measured the worth of such a paper as the Herald in case of strikes or disputes. To my mind it would be in valuable as an organising and advising, and let me add, conciliating medium. Hoping to see your circulation increase to 10,000 sDeedilv. even as asked by you, I am, Sir, &c., UNIONIST. Fort Adelaide.

RESIDENT ENGINEERS AND DISTRICT FOREMEN. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 28 December 1894
RESIDENT ENGINEERS AND DIS TRICT FOREMEN. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—A short time back a paragraph ap peared in your valuable paper on the above, emanating from the Engineer-in-Chief and the Railway Commissioners, in which it was stated that " resident engineers" were necessary to the safety of the public, and also that "district foremen" were mostly uneducated and inexperienced. Now, as an ex-railway employe of over twenty years' service in South Australia, I will endeavor to place a few facts before the public; and, mind you, they can be verified by any in dependent commission that may be ap pointed. In the first place, why are resident engineers required at all after a line has been constructed. The recently retrenched forty-seven engineers in Victoria should prove conclusively that if they are not re quired there, where there is bo much traffic, surely they are not required here, where the traffic is insignificant in comparison ; and another thing, did ever any one see a resident engine...
COMPULSORY VACCINATION. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 28 December 1894
COMPULSORY VACCINATION. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—In your paper of the 21st instant, I read -with much interest a letter on the above subject signed "Reform." I do not feel competent to write an article upon this most important subject, nor do I propose going inTO the history of it, as "Reform " has done, although to do so is very interesting, and to me rather ludicrous when you come t J find how many kinds of animal lymph (or filth) have been bred by different medical meii. They began with a horse and ended with a donkey. Vaccination was introduced in the first place to absolutely prevent smallpox, and Sir, I believe that tens of thousands of parents to-day have their children vac cinated, believing that this operation places them beyond the reach of smallpox. This idea, as you may know, is false. Doctors now say that it lessens the danger and severity of the disease. Be this as it may, I say, as a man who claims to have at least ordinaiy common sense—having made inves tigations upon the ...
CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 4 January 1895
CRICKET. The second test match, England v. Australia, resulted in a victory for the visitors by 94 runs. The Australians collapsed in their second innings, although Iredale aud Turner made uoble efforts to stem the tide of disaster. There was no favor shown by the elements on this occasion, and the Englishmen deserve credit for their win, and the evenness of their batting in the big score of 475. However, their supremacy against All Australia is still a very opeu question. The third match takes place on the Adelaide Oval, commencing next week, and cricket will be the principal theme of conversation for the next few days in all circles of society.

Trade and Labor Unions. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 4 January 1895
Trade and Labor Unions. South Australian Railway Service Mutual Assoolation.—Council meetings were held December 10 and 20. The former was presided over by Vice-President (Mr. D. H. Griffin), aiid the latter by Mr. J. Dunn. The following branches notified the General Secretary that they were re mitting monies to general office :—Murray Bridge, Wallaroo, Petersburg, and Terowie. The suggestion to hold meetings at Adelaide and Bowden in connection with hospital, ambulance, and other matters affecting the Association was further considered, and it was decided to leave tlje matter lay in abeyance until after the holidays. Mr. W. Steele, an old aud energetic member of the Council, having met with an accident which prevented him from attending to his duties as a Councillor, the Council iustructed the Secretary to convey to Mr. Steel their sympathy, and trusting that lie would soon be able to be with them again. The General Secretary presented his half-yearly financial statement, ending No...
The Democratic Orators. [BY "A STRANGER WITHIN YOUR GATES."] MR. H. TAYLOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 4 January 1895
The Democratic Orators. [By " A Strangeb, Within your Gates."3 MR. H. TAYLOR. At the club's meetings I have often noticed a gentleman of comfortable pro portions and smiling visage, evidently at home there and a "somebody," and as often have I wondered who he was. This was made clear, however, 011 Sunday even ing when this said gentleman mounted the platform as Mr. H. Taylor. As I have already intimated, Mr. Taylor has a distinct individuality which marks him out from others, and in these days, when so few people dare to possess anything, especially iu the way of character, the fact is worthy of recognition and gratitude. This gentle man has a well-eared-for appearance, and is evidently on very good terms with him self, and points out our gravest political errors with such unctuous humor that after listening to him for a lime you feel yourself carried along by his irresistible buoyancy, and laugh with him at the follies he derides. The address was announced as "Some Political Reflec...
Mr. Thomas Burt, M P., on Shorter Hours. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 4 January 1895
Mr. Thomas Burt, M P., Shorter Hours. Mr. Thomas Bart, M. 1'., Parliainentai'y Secretary to the Board of Trade, recently addressed a meeting of his constituents at Bedlington, North r. ::i:jcriand. TIi - chair was occupied by Mr. John Cairns, delegate of the Northumberland Miners' Association, who said that it was a burlesque of legisla tive work to have the House of Lords con tinuously defeating their reforms, aud they hoped the day was how near when that Chamber would be abolished. Mr. Butt, who was loudly applauded, said he had ahvays been in favour of short hours of labour, but at the same time they must be careful how they moved. His own belief was ill the economics of wealth. He had never believed, and he did not believe now, that any hard and fast rule could be laid down that was applicable to every trade, though all men, in whatever trade they might be engaged, should have some time for leisure. (Applause.) Some workmen might ask why they should care for the economic conditi...
All of a Kind. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 4 January 1895
All of a Kind was me and pap, and some mare of the crowd, Was settin' around in Jimmerson's store, When Bill Hawkins told a tale he 'lowed Would set the fellers all in a roar. Says he, "When I was out in the west, Along on the edge of Ioway, I knowed a feller there that made A hundred dollars in half a day. " The old Missoo' got on a raise— A regular old Missouri flood— An' this feller thinks he seas a chance In catcliin' floating logs of -wood. So he advertised for fifty men, In the Roarin' City ' Weekly News' To meet him on the river bank With skivs an' boats, or with canoes. " An' he hived them fellers to ketch that wood An' all that inornin' the wood they fetched An' the pjiiy he gave's where the joke came TO gove 'em half of what they ketched." And the fellers laughed at old Billy's yarn, Laughed and said they thought it grand— Yet all of them fellers that cackled so Was workin' on shares on rented land. —Indianapolis Journal.
Labor Registries in Germany. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 4 January 1895
Labor Registries in Germany. In the movement for the reform of labor registries now in progress, the initiative has been chiefly taken by the workmen's repre sentatives, whose ideal may be said to be embodied in the scheme for a central muni cipal labor registry, laid before the Stutt gart town authorities by the President of the Industrial Court in July, 1893, the most impoitant provisions of which were sub stantially as follows:—1. The registry is to be controlled by a committee composed of equal numbers of employers and workers, elected by the assessors of the Industrial Court from their own number, the duties of Chairman being taken by the President of the said Court. 2. The expense is to be born by tue town, and 110 fees are to be charged. A further demand has been made on behalf of the workmen, that during strikes and lookouts the registry should suspend operations as regards the particular trade affected. Though this scheme is stOl uudfat discus, sion in Stuttgart, municipal ...

COMPULSORY VACCINATION. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 4 January 1895
COMPULSORY VACCINATION. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—I am very much pleased to see in your paper of recent issues two letters bear ing on " Compulsory Vaccination," which, I'm sure, will stir up tlie feelings of every right-minded, man and woman. My own experience will testify to the truth of those letters. For instance, a child of mine was healthy, strong, and full of life before vaccination ; but very shortly afterwards it became dull and pale, and soon sickness made its appearance, and the result was that it just escaped death. Not only this case, but many more I could mention. I believe, sir, we can go so far as to say, children that have been vaccinated cau be picked out from those that are not. Now, this is abominable. I hope all fathers and lathers will take up this important question without delay, and the public at large will agitate until the law is repealed. I am, Sir, &c., A PARENT. Port Adelaide, Dec. 31, 1894.
Vaccination. [COMMUNICATED.] [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 4 January 1895
Vaccination. fCoMMUNICATED.l Your readers will remember the immunity from smallpox promised to the vaccinated by the medical profession in your last issue. The following is what some of our modern physicians say on the subject:— ti. W. Winterburn, M.D., Ph.D., Presi dent of the American Obstetrical Society :— " There is nothing essentially medical in the art of vaccination—110 phase of it beyond the comprehension of any ordinarily educated person, and any attempt to hedge it about as something with which the people have nothing to do but pay liberally and unquestionably for, should be resisted. Vaccination became a question of public policy when laws for its enforcement were euacted, and as long as people are taxed to support it they have the common right of investigation. As a medical tenet they might readily leave it to medical authorities to dispose of, but when the ingenuity of the law is invoked to make it obligatory, then the public have a right to know what they get for their...
