SOCIALISTS AND THE CHURCHES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 18 January 1895
SOCIALISTS AND THE CHURCHES. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—What is the chief dogma—the essen tial, political, and social decree of the Christian Churches ? One kingdom, one brotherhood, and one religion. One king dom to insure universal peace ; one brother hood to insure universal equality and hap piness, or rather the means to enjoy life; one religion that all may worship the Divine Originator of the Universe without let or hindrance, without doubts raised and time wasted in discussing fine doctrinal points, the emanation of ignorance. We Socialists have oue common Founder in the Christ; one common brotherhood founded on the teachings of that Christ—universal brotherly love ; one religion from the same source, i which for its beautiful simplicity and truth I stands unequalled. Then, what is the hindrance that debars the free grasping of hand to hand by Socialists and the Churches ? A cloud—a cloud of mysteries, of Paganism, and of bigotry—raised by them to give them power over the ignorant, w...
People's Column. VACCINATION. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 18 January 1895
People's Column. VACCINATION. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—The first duty of a parent is to pro tect his offspring, and to resist every attack upon its health at any cost and every cost, and have them vaccinated by all means if it can be proved to be beneficial. In your last issue " E. C. Greenwood" is said to state that a vaccinated child is per fectly protected from smallpox up to the age of five years. I see from an independent source that a canvass of one street only in the town from which he drew his con clusions proves that statcineut to be false. I have overwhelming evidence against his other conclusions. Reader, will you mibmit your child to the operation of vaccination after perusing the following facts :— Prior to the sitting of the present Royal Commission on Vaccination in Knglaud no less than 232 medical witnesses jhave de clared that if you have your child vaccinated it is by the operation liable to one or more of over fifty abominable diseases. Since compulsory vaccination has ...
UNEMPLOYED DIFFICULTY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 18 January 1895
UNEMPLOYED DIFFICULTY. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—Au Idea haviug just struck me re the application of the Herald to the unemployed difficulty I have sent it along. Could you not set apart a space or column in your paper expressly to give advice to those seeking employment, and especially to point out the most likely places and o -cupa tions where work is most plentiful at different periods iu the year 1 For instance, as shearing approaches, all the particulars regarding the fruit season, haymaking, harvesting, &c., and in addition to this as many advertisements for help wanted as could be obtained. As there is 110 other paper in South Aus tralia that really does what it can for the workers, au .effort made in this direction would be indispeusable to those seeking em ployment, and I am quite confident would greatly increase the sale of the Herald, besides making it more popular among the unthinking classes. Just fancy about 500, or say 1,000 idle men in South Australia taking the .He...
WORKING PEOPLE AND THE CHURCHES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 18 January 1895
WORKING PEOPLE AND THE CHURCHES. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—Your readable paper reaches me every week, and I|must congratulate you on its general excellence. Being a parson, I look first at the column which deals with the Churches. May I suggest that those who are always grumbling at the Churches, and who hold aloof from them, are some what illogical, and just a little bit absurd in their arguments andjjpositions. The argu ment we often hear is this :—" When the Churches do their duty, and are properly constituted, we will join them." But, Sir, the men who talk like this are hardly con sistent, for they joiu the various trades organizations, not because things are per fect, but in order to make them so. And they have not waited until the laws became perfect before sending men into Parliament to represent labor ; they have sent men into the House to improve things. Now, if the working mail is earnest about this question of the Churches doing their duty, why does he not attend and seek to mak...
Dave Hargrave's Mission. CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 18 January 1895
Dave Hargrave's Mission. CHAPTER I Winter in London—A Poor Habitation-— &nbsp; Friendless Tenants—Retrospective—East &nbsp; and West—Rupe in Quest of Work—A &nbsp; Friend Indeed—Hope—Despair. It was on a particularly bleak December day, in the winter of 18-- when my story opens. The snow lay thick on the ground, and the cold north wind blew fiercely down the thousand and one thoroughfares of the world's metropolis, penetrating every un sheltered nook and corner, and pouring its freezing blast in weird wailings around the countless habitations of the great city. Alas for the poor ! Although it was a period of rejoicing for those who could afford the luxuries of Christmastide, yet it was a sorrowful time for those who were unfor tunate enough to be in indigent circum stances ; the same season that ushered in joyful festivity to the well-to-do, but brought an increase of misery and wretched ness to the poverty-stricken. Only those who have lived in the mighty me...
REPLY TO "STRAIGHTCUT." TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 25 January 1895
REPLY TO "STRAIUHTCUT." TO THE EDITOR. Sir—My attention has been drawn to a letter signed " Straiglitcut.v appearing in your issue of the 11th 111st. I may be excused for assuming that the same refers to my establishment, and you will doubtless do me the justice of a small space for reply. I can only think that the letter is the work of a disappointed and vicious mind, for I give liis statements a positive denial. I pay wages t > about 200 employes, many of whom I have had with me from 15 to 20 years, and in justice to them alone " StraightcutV' letter demands an immediate refutation. The food supplied to my employes is the same as that prepared for my own family, i iu fact, the workmen themselves select the j meat that is sent to the cook. It is a strict rule for sanitary reasons that the tables are j scrubbed after every meal, and the floor j every ilay, and as to the beds the linen is i changed weekly, but 110 doubt there are some whose habits of cleanliuess are not so nice as...
A TRUE DEMOCRACY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 25 January 1895
A TRUE DEMOCRACY. TO THE EDITOR. .Sir—In the excerpt tn re, Switzerland, under tlie beading *' Government ]jy the People," in this week's issue, "ail the features of a true democracy" are claimed. I question it w hen three different " wills" are represented in their State, the national, .-and their Executive Councils. No man nor nation can have oven two wills, heuce the claim, as above, is groundless. Undoubtedly it's au advanced degree of " People's Go vernment," compared with other systems in vogue elsewhere, but nothing further. The "wanting" quantity is still uiissiug. A true democracy can only be developed by one house (one will) from which there's no appeal, except to the people as a whole, male and female, with one vote each,' the referendum as, in existence in Switzerland. By their three Councils they, even toady round the power of might of the middle man. Christ's was a true democracy when He bid Satan get behind ; 'fell's was a true democracy when he refused to doff his ca...
Fruit Canning. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 25 January 1895
Fruit Canning. Tom Price writes : — " According to ' promise I send a little information about fruit canning. Jt may prove of some value to your many readers who have homestead ! blocks and gardens. Fruit is very clieap 1 this year, the grower getting very little for I it. We have reached the limit of our cou ■ sumption in the old way, and it behoves all j that have an interest in settling people on the land to find a way out of our present : glut. If we cannot sell with profit we may | at any rate try to do something that will i give us fresh fruit when ^uch fruits are not j in season, and so be a'»Jc to provide our j selves with a luxury that is dear when money | is scarce. 1 Last season I successfully tinned some j apricots and plums, aud I have now on hand ! some of both kinds of fruit. If you follow my instructions you may have some also— I equal to the sample which I have forwarded, : Mr. Editor, to your office. Do you not think them better than jam ? You must be i a judge of ...
HAVE YE EARS TO HEAR AND EYES TO SEE? TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 25 January 1895
HAVE YE EARS TO HEAK AND EVES TO SEE ? TO T1IK KDITOIU Sir —The above question I would ask my fellow workers in South Australia. It is one that is pertinent to the present state of society, and full of meaning when we con sider the state of unrest which pervades the labor and democratic world. What does it all mean V Look around and think. Tliiuk of the conditions which a vile and anomalous competitive commercial system has brought upon us. How by supporting the oppouenis of labor, and sending them into our legisla tive halls in the past, we have bad to keep our aose to the grindstone. Trades Unions have been formed, heavy contributions and levies have been paid ; and for wliatTo light for a decent living wage, and to keep the wolf of want from the door of our out of-work brother Unionists. Is this euough 'i Trades Unions have done well in the past, but can be made to do better in the future if we will remove the delusive scales from our eyes, and vote straight for liouest labor aud...
Tenants' Improvements and Landlords' Rents. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 25 January 1895
Tenants' Improvements and Landlords' Rents. Recently the tenants of tljc General Dwellings Company, in London, made a great show of resisting a proposed increase of lent. One speaker said they ought to have been able to purchase their houses with the money they now paid for rent. The extra, shilling a week charged oil the rents made a difference of £7,000 a year to the Company, and unless tbey combined the vents would be still farther iucreased. He moved a resolution protesting against any raising of rents, and pledging the tenauts to a combined effort to prevent any increase above the figures of 1893. He could find no excuse for tlie increased charges, except that tlie estate was a model one, and the Company saw that it was an exceedingly good investment. It was an exemplary community, and the people themselves had raised the value of the property, and ought to reap the benefit, not the shareholders of the Company. (Cheers.)

What God Requires. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 25 January 1895
What God Requires. [By J, G. Whittieb.1 What asks our Father of His children, save Justice and mercy and -humility 1 A reasonable service of good deeds, Pure living, tenderness to human needs, Reverence and trust and prayer for light to see The Master's footsteps in our daily ways ? No knotted scourge or sacrificial knife, But the calm beauty of an ordered life, Whose very breathing is nnworded praise— A life that stands as all true lives have stood, Fast rooted in the faith that God is good.
