Says the Southern Gross:—"Angas has just recovered from a long and _ painful shearing, in the course of which his nocks have been much mangled by cheap blackleg labor, and he is probably more infuriated than usual in consequence. It doesu t take much to infuriate the average wealthy philanthropist." In the S.A. Permanent Artillery Force there are a captain, 12 non-eomnwssioiied officers, and only fire privates.

Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 4 January 1895

Notes. [By Phillibustee.J Judge Dap ley' ironically said to the Unionists he sentenced:—"You seek to deprive your fellowmen of that right which the Almighty has given to all men—the rii/ht to lahor as they will.'''' This is cant of the purest order. Only the other day the right of Mr. Ash to labor as he wanted to was questioned by the legal association, and no stronger combination than Bench and [ Bar exists to beep men from working as they would like to. Let a man try to plead his own cause, and he will soon find out about the rights of labor. These is one "quantity," I am afraid, not taken severely enough into considera tion where reform is at work. I mean selfishness, or call it human nature if you will. We map out our plans and schemes, allowing for every possib'e weakness and disability—excepting that of selfishness, the one great retarder of sojial progression. Too often individual democrats support the forward movement only in so far as the interests of self and particular pa...

Low Prices for Wheat, and Grain Gambling. FARMERS, READ. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 4 January 1895

! Low Prices for Wheat, and I Grain Gambling. FARMERS, READ. ,In an article in a recent issue of the London Agricultural Gazette, ail evidently well-informed writer points out that the abnormally low prices now ruling for wheat are largely due to the gambling in wheat "futures" and "options" of unscrupulous brokers. Says tlie writer:—Let it be distinctly understood that the old fashioned speculative buying and selling of actual wheat is in'•no way included in the system I am dealing with. That was fair trading, and injured no one. The gambling to which I refer cannot be called trading at all, as no wheat is supposed to change hands. It is simply a system of betting on the rise and fall of the markets. A. goes on to the Exchange au<l says <— " I will sell 100,000 fjr. of wheat for delivery in three months at 32s. pev (jr. On the acceptance of this by B. thp bargain ie registered at the Clearing House, and when the time has expired, if the markets have sunk, he d...

Current Topics. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 4 January 1895

Current Topics. We are informed that machinery for load ing aud unloading coal at Port Adelaide is m course of erection, and that it is only a matter of time when mucli of the present wharf trade will pass out of the hands of working men, and be laid on to "shoulders of steel." The limits of wage-earning are surely being narrowed, aud there will soon be a light for bread keen enough to warrant seine kiud of special legislation for the relief of those whose interests are daily being sacrificed to a murderous competition. When the Anarchist Bill, passed recently by the French Chamber of Deputies, was being debated, M. Jaures, the brilliant socialist member, moved an amendment to the effect that " all public men—ministers senators, or deputies—who shall have trafficked with their mandate, received bribes, or participated 111 questionable finan cial concerns, whether as directors of Com panies condemned by the Court, or by extolling such concerns before one or more persons, shall be con...

Freeland. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 4 January 1895

Freeland. ( Continued.) Having looked at the scheme as a whole, let us just take a rapid glance at a few details, aud see how these Freelanders fare as individuals. You must understand that as all earnings are to a great extent equalised such a thing as personal attendance for •wages is unknown. To meet a pressing necessity there is a Domestic Service Asso ciation which visits the dwellings before the inhabitants are astir, cleans the non-sleeping rooms, shakes the carpets, &c., by : machinery, lays the table, and exchanges the soiled linen for clean. Then when the family is at breakfast the association officers again visit the house and attend to the bed rooms. The meals are provided for as follows: —In every dining-room is a cup board with two aspects, into the room and into the street. It is further subdivided into two compartments, one containing an electric heating apparatus, and the other connected with the cold air supply, which is laid on jnst like our gas service. T...

Changes i>r Wages and Hours of Labor.—Daring September 65 changes in wages and hours of labor have been repottd, of which 35 were changes in wages and 10 changes in hours. The approximate number of persons direetlj- affected by changes in wages was stated in all cases, and of these 34 were increases, involving about 5,500 persons, and 21 decreases, involving nearly 100,000 persons. The latter number includes 90,000 coal-hewers and other underground workers in South Wales and Monmouth shire, and 4,000 blast furnacemen in the Cleveland district.

People's Column. HARD TIMES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 4 January 1895

People's Column. HARD TIMES. TO THE EDITOK. Sir—Glancing over your paper to-day I notice an article re the bad times called " In the Crucible." Your correspondent is wrong in thinking that by equalizing the time worked at individual shops it would tend to make an improvement individually. Most likely the effect would be to throw a number into the Insolvency Court. How is it the big drapers can advertise to the extent they do ? Must they not make enormous profits on some of their lines? How do they ensnare the public to pay these high prices ? The answer is this. They throw a sprat and catch the mackerel. A great deal of the i present distress is caused by monopoly. Why should they be allowed to cutother tradesmen to pieces to gratify their own purse. If there were a greater number of trades, each under a separate head, there would of necessity be a much greater number of heads. One competent person, in the majority of cases, could not manage a shop, as he would have to attend to buy...

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE: JANUARY 4, 1895. THE USE AND ABUSE OF MACHINERY. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 4 January 1895

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE : JANUARY 4, 1895. THE USE A1STD ABUSE OF MACHINERY. Perhaps there is no question which affects the well-being of the toiling masses so much as that which deals with the introduction of new machinery, and ; strange as it may seem to say it, the ; apathy shown by i*eformers, as well as ; that of the classes directly interested in its solution, has beeome almost proverbial. Since the inconoclastic era, when ignorant men invaded the workshops of their employers and broke up costly mechanical appliances with mattock and bar, and in consequence were dealt with by the deterring arm of the law, the increase of labor-saving machinery has gone on uninterruptedly with the most disastrous results to the workers. Every day, on every hand, the machine is being substituted for the human bread-winner, with the result that the latter is being heartlessly hounded into the streets without the chance of finding renumera tive employment himself, while at the same time he is ...

OUR MINING WEALTH. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 4 January 1895

OUR MINING WEALTH. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—I am highly pleased to see by your paper tliat there are still some energetic mining men, such as Messrs. Woodroffe and Roach, left among us who have confidence in the mineral wealth (not as some of our uiiniug uien who arc rushing into mining bubbles away from home) of this colony. We have, iu my opinion, as rich deposits of gold as any iu West Australia only waiting to be practically and thoroughly laid open. Only look north-east at the Virgina, Milo, and otlier mines on the Wadnaminga gold fields. At Teetulpa the Ironclad would, by being systematically worked, I ain sure, return a profit to the shareholders. There are also several lodes at this place, the backs of which have been laid open and good prospects taken therefrom. Next we have the Waukaringa District. Although the Alma and Victoria Mine is to be wound-up (on account of the shoot of gold ore going out of reach of the machinery) it does not follow that all the paying gold was in this...

KEEP THE ROADS OPEN. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 4 January 1895

KEEP THE ROADS OPEN. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—At a time like the present, when stock of all kinds, and more especially stores, are almost unsaleable, and ^vool is selling at such a low figure, the necessity for keep ing roads open to the back country is of paramount importance, and yet what is being done? Reservoirs aud wells have been sunk and are managed by the Water Conservation with the sole aim, it appears to me, of making those improvements pay interest on the cost of their construction. To do this, directly waters are provided, tbey are let to private individuals, who, quite ignoring the general public, simply stock reservoir or well to its utmost capacity, and not only use .the water unduly, but kill the country for miles round, so that in too many cases the track is made more difficult than before. Any protest against this state of tilings is met by the reply "that the department has not heard of any case in which a traveller has been unable to get a drink for his cattle." Get a ...
