BUTCHERS' HOURS AND CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 11 January 1895

BUTCHERS' HOURS AND CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS. TO TIIE KDITOR. Sir—I would like to give the public and subscribers of your paper just a word or two about the hours many journeymen butchers have had to work during the Christinas holidays. In a well-known shop in Hindley street, on Friday, December 21, we started at 6 o'clock in the morning, and finished at 10.30 p.m. Saturday we started at 3 o'clock in the morning, and worked till 11 o'clock Saturday night, and most of us worked half - day Sunday, aud then again started 3 o'clock Monday morning, and finished at 11 at night. After working 56 hours in three days and a half, what do you think we were fit for Christinas Day V We were only allowed half an hour for each meal, and the food supplied was not fit for pigs, much less human beings. The firm have even refused us tea to drink at dinner time, and only black sugar to use at other meals. We have made complaints about this state of affairs, but the reply is—" If you don't like it you can lea...

The Land Cries for Labor. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 11 January 1895

The Land Cries for Labor, We might ask (writes tbe editor of the Soriicidtural Review) "why should the ener getic young men from the country be sent abroad to irrigate Australia, or California, or other hazardous and inclement districts I so far afield, when our land is being' neglected at home ? There is no doubt that many of the low-lying fens of England, the bogs of Ireland, the Wash, the low clayey ' soils of Essex, the marshes in all parts of the I United Kingdom could be drained, and the | drier parts of the country irrigated, with immense advantage to the agricultural pro spects at home. Why should the chalks not be applied to the clays ? Why not burn the clay and make it friable? Why not apply labor to the laud, and not starve it ? Why not grow corn as cattle food in prefe rence to grass or weeds V Why not do as all men of common sense - do in all other occupations, devote more money, intellect, and energy to a declining trade, when it has in itself all the elements necessar...

Work and Wages. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 11 January 1895

Work and Wages. Professor Thorold Rogers, in liis cele brated work on wages ami labor iu the feudal days, made a remarkable statement in about these words :—" Three hundred and fifty years ago a skilled mechanic, in order to supply himself and family, consist ing of four persons, with food, clothing, and shelter, worked ] 6 weeks a year, 6 days a week of S hours each. The unskilled laborer, in order to procure the same degree of comfort, had to work 25 weeks." Five years ago it was calculated by political economists and leading thinkers, that the skilled mechanics of this day, in order to surround themselves with the same comfort as the skilled mechanics of 350 years ago, would have to work 56 weeks in the year, 6 days in the week, and 10 hours per day ; that the unskilled laborer, in order to reach the same degree of comfort, would have to work seventy-five weeks, 6 days a week, and 10 hours per day. In other words, it is im possible for the mechanics and unskilled laborers of this...

Notes for Working Women. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 11 January 1895

Notes for Working Women. At the Women's Congress recently held in the old land some good resolutions were passed, Reynolds', commenting on the same, says:—" So long as there are homes, and children to be nurtured in those homes, we hold, with the Comtists, that the normal breadwinner should be the man, and the normal household manager the woman. Still further. From the economic, as well as the social point of view, the more women there are in the labor market the more will wages tend to fall. The tendency of capitalism, unchecked, is to the employment, in great numbers of industries, of women and children in place of men; and from every point of view the tendency is a bad one, as all thinking trade unionists are fully aware." The competition in London streets among the unfortunates has become so keen that protective Unionism in a sense is applied by the wretched class, and the boycott used against intruders. Is it not time that a woman's vote was allowed ? Some German women in Berli...

THE GOLDEN ALLEGORY. tby t. e. b.1 There is a beautiful saying which ruqs thus:—" Vice is covered by wealth, and yiftu^e by poverty j" or, to giye it another meaning, among men thej-e are some who liave their yiqe$ concgaled by wealth, and others who have their virtues ponpealed by poverty.

Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 11 January 1895

Notes. [By Phillibusteb.] What is wanted to-day is something to make men think—think about social evils, the hungry thousands, the vrorkless millions, the misery, wretchedness, sorrow, and inhumanity in the world. A delicate business it is assuredly to intro duce. So many people do not want to know, rather they want to be let alone. Their circumstances are fairly comfortable, and they are afraid that if they make any stir to redress existing wrong they will be called upon to sacrifice. A rose would smell just as sweet called by any other name, and the doctrine of humanity, I suppose, will continue to stink in the nostrils of vested interests, whether classed under the head of socialism or democracy. Yet, I often wish that these terms were unknown. As a matter of fact they have been used so often as a deadly weapon to turn back reform. But what matter. It is not the terms which are objected to, but the pro gramme of action which they imply, and this cannot be killed off, for, so far ...

He Told Them All About It. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 11 January 1895

He Told Them All About It. [By Caradoc.] The papers bad metioned a lot about socialism, and the town was wild to know all about it. So a deputation waited upon the local schoolmaster, as the man most learned to give a lecture upon the subject. He bad only beard about socialism the day before yesterday, but lie agreed with pleasure to tell the people all about it. The retailer of monkey soap and patent remedies agreed to act as chairman. The meeting was held in the schoolroom, and the chairman, in introducing the lecturer, said—" Socialism is easily digested. Best, and goes farthest. Never failing means of relief. The want of the day. One trial will " He paused, sighed, and sat down. The schoolmaster applauded, and rising, said—" Gentlemen, I find you have chosen a capital inau for the chair. At first I thought his remarks were irrelevant. But now I see that ill fitting the leading adver tisement phrases of the day on the subject, he has given us a specimen of that dry humor, which i...

Pickings from the "Country." [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 11 January 1895

Pickings from the "Country." It has been rumored tliat the party who runs the Country is going to seclude himself for a souiewhat long period. I hope not! I sincerely hope not! Such action would be awful, in fact it would be an injustice to the labor party, and a calamity to myself. Who else would supply me with choice pickings 1 Ah, no ! An' you love me, Hal, prithee stay! (This is not Shakespeare.) But to business. The Country flippantly asks if the earth lias a centre of gold, to which I beg to answer—Of course it lias, and the pro prietors of the Country, and all of that ilk, know it, for do tbey not employ the •' mostly fools7' of Tom Carlyle to dig and delve for it while they spend it. 0 yes, there's a golden centre. The editorial mind then proceeds to rebuke some Crawler employers. There is an air of Bumbledom about the delivery which is extremely refreshing. Read it:— " It became our duty a few weeks ago to censure a lew silly youths at Gawler Town. We pointed out to their e...

A Bad Habit. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 11 January 1895

A Bad Habit. "Come and have a drink"—that's the curse of the country, and there seems no remedy for it. If men would drink "soft" stuff it wouldn't he so bad, but we are terrors for whisky. Strong drink in a hot climate is simply destructive. But the phy sical effect on a man is small compared to the moral effect. This eternal round of " shouting" goes on till a man can't pay his tailor, his butcher, or his landlord. I've seen well-dressed fellows standing at a bar doing the grand, when they owed for every stitch they wore, and their homes were utterly desolate. It's not the fashion for a man to say, " I can't afford it," when asked to drink, but if it once carae into fashion it would soon "catch on." If nobody drank whisky or went to the bar except those who could aftord it, tliere would be a terrible falling-oft in the receipts of the hotel, keepers. But it takes a man to have a fearful lot of grit in him to say " No," when there's a jolly crowd round him, all yearn ing for drink....

Law and Justice. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 11 January 1895

Law and Justice. Legislators are always lookiiig for fresh sources in which to increase the revenue, and also for decreasing expenses. Our law is not popular; there is a dread about getting into the hands of lawyers by almost all sections oi the community. Now, it would be wise to s«ft out the reasons for this. In the first plane, what is law but the administration of justice by competent persons (our Judges ?) What ought a lawyer's duty to be ? Why, one who pleads for the prisoner whom he represents ; if for the defence, defending his client from unjust accusations, and directing the Jury why he should be acquitted; if prosecuting, show ing why the prisoner should receive merited punishment, by gathering evidence and arranging it so as to present it in the most compact and direct form possible, so that as little delay as is consistent with the case shall pass in the administration of justice. Why should justice be so tardy in admin istration ? If a man is guilty, why should a techn...

Tlie whole world is passing through a period of unrest and fierce excitement unparalleled before in its history. Igno rance is being banished, and light let in, hence the confusion and turmoil coinci dent on such a great change that must necessarily arise. The frietion between j capital and labor more especially has become most intense, and unless some remedial measures for the injustices which it is generally acknowledged are being daily perpetrated on the working classes, through the strained competition of trade, caused by the continuous dis placement of manual employment by machinery, one of two things must shortly happen—a beggared working population or violent revolution. But we are hopeful, indeed, are assured, that calm is to follow the storm of to-day, and that the increased knowledge which is j being universally imbibed will result in .legislation which will se...
