Miscellanea. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 October 1894

Miscellanea. "The Duke of York's now notorious baby bas had a newthree-quarter garment made' — subject of Press correspondence. One cannot help wishing to hear that the much lauded infant has had a real good spanking by some motherly nurse. A female bootblack is the latest novelty in Paris. She does a big trade in polishing the kid of the French dudes. A man died recently in London, and although it was shown at the inquest he had starved and lacked clothing, a verdict was returned of " death by natural causes." The Governor is going to leave in Janu ary. His time is up in April, and he reckons to get his passage in on Government time. The Earl has evidently picked up the " Government stroke."

Editorial Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 October 1894

Editorial Notes. We notice with, pleasure that the different labour papers of Australia are advising Unionists as to the methods to be advantageously used in connection wiih industrial hostilities. We feel very stiongly on the matter, and hope to enlist the sympathy of every Unionist in bring ing about a change in some of the modes at present adopted among labour dis putants. We have always held that patience and kindly treatment would bring about more conversion to Unionist principles than bluster and hard names. That is, of course, where respectable and conscientious workmen outside of Unions were being dealt with. One thing is certain, no amount of intimidation and threats can make a friendly and re liable Unionist out of a respectable non Unionist. As for the class who wage war on either side indiscriminately, and who may be regarded as the Ishmaelites of labour circles, we are equally sure that too much attention to them only makes them more annoying. If they were left strictly...

ABSENTEEISM. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 October 1894

ABSENTEEISM. One of tlie great Loudon weeklies declares tliat tlie Tories are treading oil tlaugerous ground in introducing the question of absen teeism into tlieir discussions. Mr. Froude, an authority whose impartiality will not be doubted, seeing he is a Unionist, speaking on the subject, says :—"The absentee laud lords of Irela.od regarded their Irish estates as the sources of the:r income. Tlieir only desire was to extract the most out of them which the soil could be made to yield ; and they cared no more for the souls and bodies of those who were, in fact, committed to their charge than the owners of a West Indian plantation for the herds of slaves whose backs were blistering on the cane fields." . Absenteeism may be said to begin iu Ireland with the Norman invasion. D'Alton, in his " History of Dublin," gives a table, compiled from the most reliable sources, of the amounts of the annual absentee rentals at various periods, begin ning with the Revolution, as follows :— 1691, £...

THE GAROTTE REMOVED. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 October 1894

THE GAROTTE REMOVED. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—All true Democrats must heartily ■ welcome the appearance of your long-looked j for paper. "Hope deferred maketh the | heart sick." Our grea,t hope, that the real public opinion of the bulk of the population J of this province shall out last find full and free expression, is, I am confident, about to be realized as far as the ability of a weekly journal can accomplish it. This was im possible as long as almost all public news, complaints of abuses, and demands for re dress were filtered through, or strangled by a monopolistic daily press. We shall all breathe more freely now that the suppressing process has been in some degree mitigated, trusting that in the near future the WcvMy Herald may expand into a bi-weekly, and finally a full-blown daily, and so supply an urgent public need. I do not for a moment forget the great services rendered to the cause of reform by The Commonwealth, The. Pioneer, and The Voire when reformers were few and needed...

Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 October 1894

Notes. [By Phillibuster.] We have dropped riglit on to a cycle of the braising element lately, or shall I say the cycle has dropped on us ? The air is thick with challenges, wagers, finishes, &c. How the street " kiddies,'^ to use a term of " Hans the Boatman" fame, love to absorb the varied and con fusing nomenclature of the ring, and how the sporting reporter does like to air his knowledge. Take a paper from the colonies or abroad, and the chances are "ten to one" (I'm actually wagering myself) a crimson - tinted column of " rounds" will meet your eye. The Ply mouth Booster and the Bayswater Chicken on such and such a date fought for so and so, to the finish, before a dis tinguished gathering. They got to work early. * # # * Then follows the details—how " claret" was tapped, " konks" were visited, 1 listeners" were brushed, and " peepers" were put in mourning, " ivory" rattled, and some one's nut got in chancery. And so on and on right to the finish. And the cream of it al...

WOMEN'S LAND REFORM LEAGUE. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 October 1894

WOMEN'S LAND REFORM LEAGUE. The usual monthly meeting of the Women's Land Reform League was held at Jackman's Rooms on Thursday evening, October 4. There was a good attendance of members. The Hon. Secretary, Miss E. Williams, reported on the work done during the month by the ladies belonging to the Adelaide Writing Circle. A discussion took place in connection with the proposed outing to the National Park on some Saturday afternoon at an early date, and it was decided that further arrangements should be settled at a special meeting on Thursday next. Hitherto the public gatherings in connection with the Women's League have usually taken the form of socials ill the Albert Hall, but it was thought that at this springtime of the year, when the country is looking at its best, a new departure might he made by spending a few hours pleasantly and sociably in the hills.

DEMOCRATIC CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 October 1894

DEMOCRATIC CLUB. On Sunday evening, October7,;tlie platform of the above club was occupied by Mr. A. T. Saunders, who delivered an interesting address upon " Thomas Paine, Quaker, staymaker, sailor, exciseman, writer, states man, philosopher, and philanthropist." The lecturer, in his opening remarks, explained that he proposed to treat different phases of the career of a much-maligned man, quite apart from tlie religious tenets of liis sub ject. Much of what he had to say was based on a new life of Paine, recently written by Moncure D, Conway. He then traversed Paine's history from his youth to the time of his death. In doing so he out lined some of the main features of what Paine had worked and suffered for, and reminded the audience that tlie " Age of Reason " was written at a time when, under Robespierre's temporary rule, the author was in the Bastille iu daily apprehension of being guillotined. He subsequently, to some extent, received justice by toeing elected for three differe...

PROBATE FEES AND PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 October 1894

PROBATE FEES AND PARLIA MENT. It is said that if you sow the wind you will reap the whirlwind. Now-a-days it seems that you can have all the fun of sowing, and throw upon someone else the thankless task of garnering the troublesome harvest. This, at least, is Sir John Downer's good fortune, and Mr. Kingston's bad luck, in connection with the probate fees trouble, which has occupied hours and hours of the valuable time of the Assembly, which might have been much better spent. The facts are very simple. The Administration and Probate Act, passed in 1891, gave power to the Judges of the Supreme Court to regulate all fees under the Act, provided that the rules they made were confirmed by the Executive, and were not objected to by either House within 36 days after copies had been laid before Parliament. So in the time of the Holder Government Chief Justice Way and Judge Bundey made rules declaring that on every probate a fee of five shillings for every £100 on the value of the estate sho...

CHURCHISM AND THE FORWARD MOVEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 October 1894

CHURCHISM AND THE WARD MOVEMENT. Some further food for reflection on tlie subject of Churchism and social questions can be gathered from the discussion which recently took place at tile annual meeting of tlie Baptist Association, on the occasion of Mr, Quinn moving that pastors should be recommended to study and identify them selves with the principles of the Foi wa-vl Social Movement, hi -vo Jar as they are in accord with the, spirit and teaching of (he Lord Jestt/s Christ. Mr. Quinn, with a sturdy honesty of purpose, laid, some heavy but positively true charges at the door of Churchism. He asked why so much indifference was shown by " honest, hard-working men" to the religion of the Churches, and found an answer in the indifference shown by the clergy to the claims put forward by the worker for reforms which, have for their basis gospel teaching. This iu effect was the teuov of liis argument. He pictured the Church leaning toward the side of Mammon unduly, showing apathy to the po...

SIR JENKIN COLES ON THE EIGHT-HOURS SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 October 1894

SIR JENKIN" COLES 01* THE EIGHT-HOURS SYSTEM. The speech of Sir Jenkin Coles, the Speaker of the House of Assembly, on October 11, was in some respects a curious one. Apart from its merits as a declaration of a policy which the hon. gentleman be lieves M'ill have to be adopted iu order to pull South Australia through her present difficulties, it was brimful of inconsistencies, aud showed liow susceptible the senior member for Light is to newspaper criticism. As Speaker, Sir Jenkin is most attentive to bis duties; and, Ave believe, possesses the entire confidence of his fellow members. He worthily seeks to maintain the dignity attaching to his high office, and is a strong believer in "the absolute necessity of the Speaker keeping himself entirely aloof from party politics." So far so good. On the occasion referred to one of the most con tentious Bills which have been before Par liament this session was under discussion in Committee—the Taxation Act Amendment Bill—and as Sir Jenkin wa...

HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 October 1894

House of Assembly. Immediately members had made their bow to the Speaker Mr. Johnson rose and pre sented a petition from the brewers, asking the House to allow Mr. Stock to be heard at the Bar of the House in opposition to Mr. Grainger's Public House Monopolies Preven tion Bill. Petitions were also presented against the Bill by several other members from hotel-keepers and wine and spirit mer chants, the reading of which occupied nearly a quarter of an hour. Several questions of more or less interest liaviog been asked, Mr. Griffiths, on a formal motion of adjournm-nt, called attention to the lack of qualified medical practioners in the outlying portions of the Northern Territory, and was informed by the Government that they could not supply doctors, but would send boxes of drugs, with the necessary instructions to Government officials. Mr. O'Loughlin then moved that better facilities should be given at railway stations for ^the storage of grain by granting long leases of stacking si...

Trades Unionists Read. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 October 1894

Trades Unionists Read. We are informed 011 good authority that a Director of one of the Broken Hill Alining Companies recently stated that a movement is now oil foot among the employers for con certed action, to come into force in a few months' time, with the object of refusing employment to any man connected with any Labour Union ! This adds some confirma tion to the programme arrived at by the various Employers' Unions at Albury, which was published in the Sydney Worker some few weeks ago, and referred to in the Voice. In these days of so-called freedom of con tract, this seems a terribly tyrannical pro ceeding for the employers to adopt. We shall see whether they have the hardihood and the cruelty to seek to carry it into effect. Trades Unionists and Democratic Associations should certainly now be on the alert. To be forewarned is to be forearmed. There are various rumours going about relative to the intentions of large employers aud capitalists towards labour in the future. Now,...

Wastrel. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 19 October 1894

Wastrel. [by The Which.] JL'iius ail Advertiser cable ill Tuesday's publication :— " London, October 15 — In presiding over a meeting to-day of the South. Australian Land, Mortgage, and Agency Company, Mr. Richardson stated that during the past four years the Company had repaid 5S per cent, of the amount which had been raised by debentures. An amount was due next year of £90,000." Remembering the late appeals made by the tenants of the South Australian Company ; knowing, as I do, the straggles of farmers and —well, even squatters—to live, this statement appears to me to point a moral, if it doesn't adorn a tale, the unprofitable tale of mortgagors at the end of the fleeting years. Will any lion, member unravel this mysterious telegram ? « * * -a By the light of Lord Roberts, as recently shown, it appears that the frowsy Afghan is not the man and affectionate brother lie is represented to be by the philanthropic pro pagandist of the pulpit-. Yet we are so constantly told lie is a Bri...
