WORKING PEOPLE AND THE CHURCHES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 25 January 1895
WORKING PEOPLE AND THE CHURCHES. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—I am a late subscriber of the Voice and have been doubtful whether the Weekly &nbsp; Herald would fill well the gap made by its demise, but am agreeably surprised to find such an excellent and impartial tone from a moral, social, and political standpoint being maintained by its successor. It is with pleasure I enclose subscription for the ensuing year. Like "Country Parson" in &nbsp; your issue of the 18th, I am always in terested in the "Churches Column," and consider that such a column, if rightly and judiciously managed, will prove a valuable aid to the much-desired reform of the Churches, leading to the growth in our midst of such stalwart champions of truth as the late Rev. Hugh Gilmore, aud the Revs, Bright, Thompson, Glasson, Nield, and Wheatley. I think with "Country Parson" that the working man in standing aloof from the Churches because they may not be in constitution what might be desired by every true re...
People's Column. SELFISHNESS AND REFORM. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 25 January 1895
People's Column. SELFISHNESS AND REFORM. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—"Amicus" says in his letter re "Selfishness aud Reform," "The taint is on all, even to our ministers of the gospel, who preach that you cannot serve both God and mammon, but yet are always open to accept a more lucrative call." "Who are thou, that judgest another mail's servent ? To his own master he standeth or falleth" (Rom., xiv, 4). I am not a Church member, and never was, and in all probability never will be. Hallelujah, I'm a poor, despised, happy, well-saved Salvationist, and on my way to the glory land. I love my Saviour Jesus Christ with all my heart, but I really hate to hear people everlasting finding fault with God's people, or those who profess to he his chosen followers. Selfishness will never be eradicated till people are converted to God. Directly a person is converted they look round and help their neighbours. No more expensive habits ; clothes must last so many months. Give all we can, aud expect every one...
People's Column. REFORMS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 1 February 1895
People's Column. REFORMS. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—Anold Manowick was a bit un fortunate iu the illustration he gave of the pond and the eels iu last issue, and your footnote was apropos to his illustration. But might I be allowed to point out where confusion has arisen over the matter ? It is j through, the incorrect statement of the illustration and the advantage taken thereof without fair handling. Now, as you say, it would be uuwise to sit still on the bank of a pond of eels while you could be taking advantage of their presence and making use of them. In fact, it would be better that the pond should not be drained while it liai'bored and cultivated good wholesome food for use as required. But the intention of the illustration would have been more clearly shown if it named a pond of water infested with poisonous fish. In that case it would be better to drain off the poisoned water, and so kill off the fisli it bred, than to wait for the slow process of catching them, as delay in such a...

American Millionaires: How They Live. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 1 February 1895
| American Millionaires: How They Live. M. Pauul Bourget, in the Fijaro, de scribes Newport, the seaside resort of millionaries on Rhode Island, of which he was told " there are more millions of dollars represented on that little extremity of a little island than in London and Paris com bined." The magnificence of the buildings, says M. Bourget, is very significant when we consider that these dwellings serve only for six weeks or two months of a year, perhaps, and that each one lias an habitual accompaniment uf a four-in-hand, a yacht, or sometimes two, a private railway carriage, in order to be chcz -soi on all tlie railway lines, a house at New York, and another house in the country. Here is one who lias lived much in England, and it pleases him to have an Euglish abbey. So there is, gray and severe, so exact, so com plete, that it might be transported to Oxford, to the banks of the Isis or the Cher well, and not a single stone need be changed to make of it the sister of the delig...
Democratic Societies. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 1 February 1895
Democratic Societies. Democratic Club. — A lecture on "Liberty" was delivered by Mr. Thomas Harry at the Adelaide Democratic Club on Sunday last. The Vice-President (Sir. Matthews) was in the chair. There was a large audience, and considering the serio comic style in which the lecture was treated Mr. Harry's " oratory" was patiently listened to. Both dailies devoted much of their space to what Mr. Harry said, but at the same time ignored the remarks offered by other persons on the subject. Taking this into consideration we may be pardoned for simply stating that Mr. Harry evidently visited the Democratic Club with a brief from liis old masters. That same old piece of music, upon which Mr. Hariy lias offered so many variations, was played with spirit, and at the conclusion the grand old musician smole a very self-satisfied smile at having been given the chance to belittle his opponents in their own meeting house. To tell the truth the affair was more anathema than lecture. At the con...
Harriet Keels on "Slums and Christian Socialism." [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 1 February 1895
Harriet Keels on "Slums and Christian Socialism." Harriet B. Keels writes in the World's While Ribbon in regard to slums and socialism:— "Gospel workers write the precepts of the Church and Christ athwart their banners, but do not consider it equally their bounden duty to force these principles into the politics of the city and State—not only for the destruction of the liquor traffic, but for justice; simple justice for ail men and all women, not for classes, but for the masses, who are at once the bulwarks and menace of this civilization. We want a justice that does not arm the boy in the public school, and drill a formidable State militia to protect plutocracy against de mocracy, capital against honest labor, which only asks a living wage, but to whom justice should mete out a reasonable day of labor that would secure a comfortable living and freedom from anxiety for old age. Militarism is a recession in our civilisation ; it has only selfish ends; is the organisa tion of brute fo...
United Trades and Labour Council. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 1 February 1895
United Trades and Labour Council. The Trades ami Labor Council met at the Selborne Hotel oil Friday, .January 25, the President (Mr. W. M. Green) presiding over a fair attendance of delegates. Messrs. J. Walton (Brickyard Employes' Society), T. Nelson (Bookbinders' Society), and J. E. Evans (Boilermakers' Society), were welcomed by the President as new delegates. The Port Adelaide District Trades and Labor Council wrote stating that Mr. J. Thompson had been selected for recommen dation by the Council for a seat on the State Board under the Conciliation Act. Received, and the nomination accepted. A delegate from the Brickyard Employes' Society reported that the moulders who had refused to work at the reduced rates had resumed work at the old rates. He thought it very creditable to the Master Brick makers' Association' that they should have upheld the employes in resisting the reduc tion proposed by the employers concerned. Report received. Nominations for President, Vice-Presi dent, ...
The Apostle of the Poor. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 1 February 1895
The Apostle of the Poor. General Booth lias had a most extra ordinary and triumphal march through the American States, His welcome was un precedented in all the cities he visited, railway companies franking him through the country in special cars, and the masses and classes vying in their eagerness to do honour to the grand old man. The visit of the General to America, in fact, has been 110 mere nine days' wonder, but a veritable upheaval of society, the effects of which will be lasting. An American writer says:— " Chicago was determined not to play second fiddle to any city in the Republic so far as cordiality was concerned, and when S00 divines, consisting of pastors and preachers of every denomination, assembled in the great Willard Hall, our leader was deeply moved at the hearty spontaneousness of love and good feeling displayed. At an immense meeting in the huge auditorium, the Rev. J. H. Barrows, D.D., of the First Presby terian Church, who was the chairman of the world's parl...

The Yerba-Mate. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 1 February 1895
The Yerba-Mate. Twenty-five million people in South. America, instead of drinking coffee, prefer yerba-mate, which, from ite delightful taste, its delicate aroma, and its stimulating action upon the brain and nerves, must be regarded as one of the pleasantest beverages in the ■world. Five things are necessary to brew yerba mate in true South American fashion. There is first tiiemate itself, which is a small gourd or calabash with a round hole cut in the side, serving: as a teapot. Then one needs a bombilla, a metal tube usually made of silver, and furnished with a strainer at its lower extremity. Besides these, there must be boiling water, sugar, and a supply of yerba leaves, which have been first thoroughly dried in ovens built for the pur pose, and then pressed. When a visitor arrives at any house in Central America, Chili, Peru, Bolivia, or Paraguay, he is immediately invited to par take of the yerba-mate, which is prepared in his presence by servants, who, from long practice, ha...

How the Whites Civilize the Aboriginals. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 1 February 1895
How the Whites Civilize the Aboriginals. A correspondent writes to a contem porary :—" The blacks are treated in the western portions of Queensland and in the Territory in a most damnable fashion. The males are virtually slaves. They are com pelled to work on stations, for which they receive no payment whatever, excepting a cotton shirt and a pair of moleskin trousers two or three times a year. If they run away they are pursued, and when caught they are flogged. I have known a gin dressed as a boy to come into town with a station manager. It is a common thing for stockmen to have witli him a gin in a shirt and moleskins. A man in charge of a small station near Boulia at times comes to the township of Boulia, and deliberately goes to the blacks' camp and stops there during his stay in town. Nine out of every ten station managers are unmarried, and even some of the married ones are what are locally termed ' coomboo,' i.e., men that cohabit with gins." We have more than once called att...

RoaiAS" Catholic Church mopping up the Anglican ritualists. McGalujM, a policeman, says he saw the Tantanoola tiger and shot it—oh, come, • now i Well-known- financiers of Paris are being shadowed by detectives, because of their supposed complicity in fraud. How many financiers are there who, if they had their rights, would be in gaol instead of their gilded salons ? The Country thinks there can never be a wider and better brotherhood thau there is to-day. The same organ suggests curtailing our educational system. Says the Burra News :—" The People Weeldy is growing more and more popular every week." Says the Port Pirie Standard : The Peoples Weekly is not a gigantic success—it is labored and unattractive. Pirie people can, however, judge for them selves ; plenty of Heralds go to the smelting port every week. "Theta," in the Cou...
Bimetallism. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 1 February 1895
Bimetallism. [By W. O. Archibald.] If a man earns a pound he expects to get a pound's worth for it, and not fifteen shillings worth The bimetallist claims to raise the price of our staples, create a general pros perity through plenty of employment, and bring about a restoration of good times. He claims that times were good before 1873, about the time silver was demonetised and gold became the standard among the Western nations. We are told all will be well ao-ain if we return to the fixed ratio of 15i to°l. There never was, and never can be," maintained a fixed ratio. When a. currency is based upon two metals the j market price of the metals as bullion will really and truly fix the value of the gold j and silver coins, and the under-valued coins ! will be hoarded, melted, or otherwise dis- j appear, and the over-rated corns remain in j circulation. The probable effect of fixing the ratio by a European convention would be &lt; to give an impetus to silver-mining, increase | t...
Women's Column. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 1 February 1895
Women's Column. Scientific men emphatically condemn tbe boxing of children's ears. The passage of the ear is closed on its inner side by a thin membrane, especially adapted to be in fluenced by every impulse of the air, and with nothing but the air to support it in ternally. Any sudden or forcible compres sion of the air in front of this membrane is likely to injure it. Such a shock is almost sure to distend the membi;aiie unnaturally, and sometimes it breaks it, especially when, from previous disease, the membrane has been weakened. Besides, such a shock is almost sure to injure the nerve of hearing. Many a child has been made deaf by having its ears boxed, and others from tbe same cause have been afflicted for years, and sometimes for life, with painful diseases of the auditory organs. So the verdict of science is, " don't box children's ears."
