Question Box. CONTRIBUTIONS INVITED. QUES.—What is the Gospel of Christ? [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 11 January 1895
Question Box. CONTRIBUTIONS INVITED. Qobs.—What is tlie Gospel of Christ Ans.—It is good news and glad tidings to all who are oppressed, producing peace on earth and goodwill towards men. Qpes.—Pow is the Gospel to be preached in a practical way to suffering humanity 'i Ans.—In the same way as the good Samaritan preached to the man who fell amongst thieves. A personal interest in the social conditions of humanity must be taken, and the cause of oppression removed. This cannot be done until the birthright of every man is restored. Ministers of the Gospel admit that the earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof ; every man must live on and from the earth: therefore the land was intended to support the human race, which ought to be free to every one willing to labor and produce the fruits of the soil. Every industrious man has an equal right to live and enjoy the inheritance of his Heavenly Father. The land is the storehouse pro vided by God for all, and the source of all the wealth...
OUR MINING WEALTH. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 11 January 1895
OUR MINING WEALTH. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—I was pleased to read Mr. S. Richards's letter on the above subject, aud wish to state that we believe that there are plenty of good payable mines in our hills close to Adelaide. Our scheme is oue that has been formulated by a committee of gentlemen brought together for the purpose of giving work to the unemployed by form ing mining settlements, that can be extended over an extensive area without injury or hurt to any one, and without the possibility of the miners or others forming a monopoly. We believe our scheme will do this; it also does away with directors' fees and share holders. We hope to give another public lecture shortly, and are willing to explain the scheme to any individual or association. Hoping that all who take an interest in the unemployed question will help us in a practical way, I am, Sir, &«•> ^ r0ACH. Kilkenny, January 9.

The Wool Industry and the P.U. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 11 January 1895
The Wool Industry and the P.U. We offer the following few remarks made by Mr. W. G. Spence in the interests of South. Australian bona-fide pastoralists. We have spoken to individual woolgrowers, and are convinced from what has been said to us that very much of what Mr. Spence advances Is unfortunately too true. It seems time that the obstinacy and pigheadedness of a few monopolists and money-lenders were broken down, and reasonable action taken to ensure permanent peace between not only pastoralists and shearers, but between employers and employed generally. Capital (not monopoly) and labor want to see prosperous times, and if there is any intelligence in either class, it is time it was applied for mutual benefit. The wool industry is the biggest thing in Australia as yet, and it is no exaggeration to assert that the P.U. has been the cause of losing £5,000,000 for each year of its exis tence ; and if it continues its career it will drive the trade to Argentina, and give us a loss o...

A Bit from the "Star." THE CRY OF THOSE AT SEA. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 11 January 1895
A Bit from the ** Star." THE CRY OF THOSE AT SEA. [Lines suggested by Mr. Piimsoll's evi dence before the Labor Commission, reported iu the Star.~\ That owners may in splendour live And dividends run high, For food this carrion flesh they give, Aud send us here to die. That heavy-laden decks may groan, 'Neath piled up merchandise, Tlaey sacrifice our lives. Our moan Who heeds ? Who minds our cries If some poor sailor lad should seek In court of law relief, Lo ! on the bench demure and meek, The authors of his grief! But surely justice is not dead, Some pity there must be; Plimsoll—God's blessing on his head ! Still pleads for those at sea. And other hearts will feel, will bleed, Touched by our woeful tale; And thus, in spite of human greed, Our cause will soon prevail. R. T. Follow thy better heart; Follow thy better will; And so thy better self In thy best self fulfil To thy best self be true ! To own an honest hand, To own an honest name, To feel an honest heart, Is more than weal...
A Contract of Freedom. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 11 January 1895
A Contract of Freedom. Speaking on the agricultural laborer ques tion at tlie Norwood Congress, Mr. George ; Edwards (Secretary of the Norfolk and ' Norwich Laborers' Union) said:—"With j regard to the system of tied cottages he had recently an opportunity of seeing one of these agreements which the agricultural laborer was compelled to sign previous to his entering upon the occupation of a cottage. He is to agree to leave his cottage in a week or a fortnight, to be a game watcher, and to give information concerning anyone he may see on the estate poaching, to undertake not to keep fowls or pigs with out the consent of the landlord or bis agent, to adhere strictly to domestic purity, and if any one of his daughters should be unfor tunate enough to return from service in a state of pregnancy he was not to admit her into his home—(Shame)—and to live at peace with all his neighbours, especially his employer. (Laughter.) Gentlemen laughed, but this was no extraordinary fact. The agreeme...
News Condensed. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 11 January 1895
News Condensed. Nine per cent, of the amalgamated engineers are unemployed; still their union remains almost impregnable. The reason is the members arc staunch, and never refuse their contributions and levies, no matter how often they may be made. The boycott Is driving many a poor miner to death or crime in Scotland. Mr. Poynton is honestly trying to help on the question of pastoral settlement, but the money-lending interest is a Sbylockian one, and must apparently be first considered in legislation. It is not the pastoral lessee so much as the money-lender who does not like the Pastoral Bill. The Hospital Board appointed Miss Gordon on the recommendation of Doctor Perks and a fellow-official of the institution, both of whom, says report, are personal friends of the promoted lady. Methylated spirits being passed through the Victorian customs, which, with a little chemical doctoring, can be turned into Hcnnessy or Burke. In the old land the poor swiper mugs himself continually on a ...
Current Topics. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 11 January 1895
Current Topics, One of the improvements projected by the London County Council is a Broadway from Holborn to the Strand, which will cost over two and a quarter millions sterling ; but the Council lias determined not to start the work till it lias obtained power to apportion the cost fairly on landlords as well as tenants. This it proposes to do in two ways :—1. By levying a special land values improvement rate on both owners and occu piers. '2. By appropriating one-half of the unearned increment which will result from the municipal expenditure. The Sydney Morning Herald compositors have received information that five Hat tersley type-setting machines are to be intro duced into the office about the end of December, and five more at the end of January next year; and notice has been given that the staff in consequence will be reduced by forty-five hands. The manager also informed the men that it was the inten tion of the firm to employ girls as distribu butors for the machines in the d...

MR. HENRY TAYLOR AS A REFORMER. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 18 January 1895
MR. HENRY TAYLOR AS A REFORMER. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—In your issue of the 4th iiist. " Pliillibuster," after some personal remarks concerning Mr. Taylor, the propriety of which may Ik-, questioned, goes on to say— " However, his sentiments oil the land question are all right, the main objection I find with him being that he is apt to thiuk there is no other question to be considered with it—a mistake I venture to affirm." A mistake I also venture to affirm, but the mistake is with "Pliillibuster." ^o far from thinking or teaching that " there is no other question to be considered with it" (the land question), his constant contention is that all other questions of economic and social reform are bound up in, and depen dent upon it. In other words, that until there is free laud there nevtr can be free men. If Mr. Taylor's sentiments on the land question are " right," why should we not support tliem with all our strength, giving the land question that foremost place in our reform niovemeu...

Democratic Societies. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 18 January 1895
Democratic Societies. Democratic Clujj. — Mr. C. Bastard, Vice-President of the labor party, delivered au interesting lecture on Sunday evening on the " Platform of the Labor Party." In his opening remarks he stated that it was astonishing to find that outside the labor and democratic circles little or nothing was understood of the intentions ot the party as published in their platform. He carefully went through the sixteen planks that com prised the labor platform, and expressed his opinion that the policy of the jiarty was a thorough up-to-date political platform. The question of taking off the duties from tea, coffee, cocoa, and other commodities, and making up the deficiency in the revenue with a tax on land values should, in the lecturer's opinion, go a long way towards satisfying the single taxer. In dealing with the proposed electoral reform stress was laid on this portion, aud he hoped by next general elections something would be done to remedy existing unfairness of large d...
Trade and Labor Unions. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 18 January 1895
Trade and Labor Unions. Tanners and Curriers' Union. — A special meeting of this Union was held on Monday evening in. the Chess-room of the Hindraarsli Town Hall. It was resolved— —"That as Mr. F. J. Hourigan, M.P., had not attended to liis duties as delegate to the Trades and Labor Council and the United Labor Party the offices be declared vacant, and that he be informed that his service? are no longer required." Mr. G. Allruan was elected to fill the vacancy as delegate to the Trades and Labor Council, and Mr, G. Brand was elected to represent the Union in the United Labor Party. A levy was struck to pay the funeral donation to the family of the late Mr. E, Turner. Mr. A. McLennau was @lecfced Auditor, pice Mr. R. Hourigan.

New Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 18 January 1895
New Australia. Letter rcceivecl by Gilbert Casey from Las Ovejas, September 22, 1S9±:— Your letter to hand from England. Glad to hear of your success there, taking into consideration your limited time and cash. I expect you are in Australia at the time of writing this. We received a letter from the Adelaide group last week which is very encouraging, aud according to their account your work will be much easier than we imagined. Peter McNauglit has decided to come with us. I never doubted he would do so when the fact of the case were ^clearly laid before him. We had a pretty tight go since you left, and to make matters worse there are two pagarays (p.ns.) due on a mob of cattle we sold amounting §1600*00 odd, and the man cannot pay. It may turn out all right in the end. If you are successful in getting the Tar on the move again, look out to have some rtash to back lier up. If you can only manage to get euough. to keep us going iu flour we might manage the rest; that is cutting it as f...
Drama and Music. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 18 January 1895
Drama and Music. [By Ariel.] The members of the musical and dramatic profession have always been famed for tbeir generosity to less fortunate brothers and sisters, and the following pretty little story is worth repeating:—Mdlle. Halda, the famous Parisian singer, was breakfasting with a friend at Neuilly. A miserable old woman was singing, and her daughter held the plate. Never a copper came the old woman's way, and she began to cry. Mdile. Halda jumped up from her seat and took her place, and began to sing, whilst her friend took the plate from the little girl. "It is Halda," went round the restaurant, and there was gold among the silver in the plate before she had finished her song and gone back to her table. They didn't like the Kendals and " The Second Mrs. Tanqueray" at 'Frisco, and Mrs. Kendal doesn't like the American Press. "America has disappointed us," Mrs. Kendal is stated to have said, and Mr. Kendal's moral feelings are hurt. "I thought that in presenting this play I wa...
Notes for Working Women. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 18 January 1895
Notes for Working Women. Strange to say the four most active socialistic propagandists in Great Britain are women ; educated women of course. They have no official connection with the labor party, however, but are simply talented and enthusiastic women, who are devoting their lives to the cause of liberty. A Scotch lady labor agitator—Miss Irwin —declares that the health, morality, and social life of women are more largely in fluenced by wages than anything eke.— And there isn't a doubt about it. A young lady, who was the proud possessor of a pair of dainty feet, was tor mented with a corn upon the little toe of the right foot. Chiropodists had dug into it in vain. One day a friend advised anoint ing the offendjng corn with phosphorous, which the lady, in a weak moment, did, but forgot to tell her husband before retiring at night. It had just struck 12 from a church clock near the house, when the husband woke, and was startled to see something sparkle at the foot of the bed. He had ...

CRICKET. The third test match, England v. Aus tralia, was brought to a conclusion on Tuesday, and resulted in a decisive victory for .Australia by 3S3 runs. The match will be remembered on account of Albert Trott's magnificant display with both bat and ball.
