A SCIENTIFIC MEDIUM OF EXCHANGE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 1 February 1895

A SCIENTIFIC MEDIUM OF EXCHANGE. TO THE EDITOR. I Sir—In order to be as brief as possible I Lave placed here a few ideas concerning the above iti a condensed form. Now, as it is one of the greatest necessities of life, under I any system of government, to have some sort oi an exchange, or circulating medium, why not keep abreast of the times in inven tion among other things, and adopt the most scientific form of exchange available 1 Now, what is the most scientific form of ex change possible, that is the question V Here is my humble opinion:—1. An exchange ttat is perishable, or rather terminable, and thus, by virtue of its peculiar qualities, cannot be gathered up into big heaps away from public use. 2 An exchange that of material is the most convenient to handle and carry about. 3. An exchange that cannot be counterfeited, without running great risk, and yet can be cheaply manu factured by tbe Government. To meet these requirements I would recommend—1. The issuing by the Governmen...

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE: FEBRUARY 1, 1895. SUPPORT LOCAL INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 1 February 1895

The Weekly Herald.' ADELAIDE : FEBRUARY 1, 1895. SUPPORT LOCAL INDUSTRY. The kind of protection which, we should like to see afforded South Australian producers and manufacturers, even a free trader can have no objection to. Householders, and more especially those who are depending on colonial industry for their livings, we maintain ought, as far as circumstances will allow, to patronise all foods and materials made in the colony. We know that numbers do not do so, but affect a dislike for colonial goods generalljT, and resolutely refuse any article which is not imported. The fault of these dislikes in a great measure lies with the syndicate and company mongers who so often have duped the colonial public in the past; ; in fact we have now in our mind's eye several concerns which were started with great eclat, chanipagnc distribution, and ] Press eulogies, and which, after being : manipulated by the " corner men" for | a term were left to languish or die in the hands of some simpleto...

The People's Anthem. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 1 February 1895

The People's Anthem. When will Thou save the people, O God of mercy, when ? Not kings and lords, but nations, Not thrones and crowns, but men ! Flowers of Thy heart, O God, are they Let them not pass like weeds away Their heritage, a sunless day— God save the people ! Shall crime bring for ever, Strength aiding still the strong ? Is it Thy will, O Father, That man shall toil for wrong ? "No," say Thy mountains; "No," skies. Man's clouded sun shall brightly rise And songs ascend instead of sighs— God save the people ! When wilt Thou save the people, O God of Mercy, when ! The people, Lord, the people, Not thrones and crowns, but men ! God save the people—Thine they are— Thy children, as Thine angels fair J From vice, oppression, and despair God save the people ! Ebenezer Elliott. Mb.

THE RED VAN CAMPAIGN. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 1 February 1895

THE RED VAN CAMPAIGN. TO THE EDITOR. _ Six-—I fully concur with " Country Re former's" suggestion re the Red Van Cam paign as a living memorial to our departed brother, and would like to know where sub scriptions can be sent for tliat object. Combating the apathy and want of know ledge on the land question on the part of the masses was E. J. Hiscock's special aim, the elevation of humanity the object nearest his heart. What, then, more fitting than for those who knew him best and loved him ■most to rally to the support of what he loved, to make an inroad on the apathy he deplored by increased energy and activity in the cause of right, by trying to overcome selfishness and the inhumanity of man by loosening our purse strings to spread the light far and wide amongst the many, knowing that " evil is wrought by want of thought, far more than want of heart." I am, Sir, &e., PORT LINCOLN.

MEMORIAL TO MR. HISCOCK. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 1 February 1895

MEMORIAL TO MR. HISCOCK. SO THE EDITOK. Sir—I wisli to state my appreciation of the suggestion thrown out by "Country Reformer" in your last issue. I think with him that we canoot better express our appreciation of the noble character and work of our late brother than by thus carrying on ■what he began. In the country districts: especially good work would be done. Many of the inhabitants of the townships and the surrounding agriculturists have hardly as yet had the question of land values taxation placed fairly before them. What little they know lias been gathered from the dailies and gratis copies of the Country, and is of a very meagre and lop-sided character. As we have only a little over twelve months before the next general elections there is need that we should make haste. A little has been promised towards the Red Van campaign from this district, and were the matter once thoroughly taken up more would, no doubt, be forthcoming. Knowing that you regard the question as vital I ...

CHRIST AND THE LAND. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 1 February 1895

CHRIST AND THE LAND. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—" I have," says Dr. Jefferis, "no scheme to offer by which the precepts of Christ's Gospel are to be successfully carried out." What an admission of impotency from one to whom men might look for some light on a subject that ere long mast of necessity stir the world. Are we for ever to " Grope our dull way 011, By the dim twinkling gleams of ages gone," while millions of every generation go down to the grave in despair, " unwept, un honored, and unsung?" Must no new means he tried to extirpate poverty ? Are all to stand idly by while the poor perish in squalid homes, and unknown multitudes are ever hovering on the verge of poverty, kuowing not which way to turn until with deep, though concealed, indiguation they are ruthlessly compelled, under the present system, to resort to degrading, dishonest, demoralizing acts in almost every vocation of life, to keep from falling into the dreaded dark" abysS.

FREETRADE V. PROTECTION. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 1 February 1895

FKEETRADE V. PROTECTION. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—I don't agree with all that is being said nowadays about the products of Eastern labor competing with European. As a matter of fact we need never lie afraid of our products being undersold by any country in n hicli wages are lower than j in our own. The effects of high wages are I " more efficient labor and the use of machinery." These mean in the long run a lower cost of production. i If low wages mean cheap goods, and rice \ versa, there is no hope for the worker, as ! the more his wages are increased (the very j goal we are struggling for) the higher he | pays for commodities—happily a fallacy. It is in high wage countries that manu facturing is profitable, e.;f. Englaud almost j freetrade. If we.don't want the yellow man here, for racial reasons, let us keep him j out; but we have certainly nothing to fear from the manufacturers. Moreover, we don't want to pay high prices for goods, merely to subsidise a few capitalists. With real free...

BIMETALLISM. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 1 February 1895

BIMETALLISM TO THE EDITOR. Sir—As the question of all questions 011 which devolves our future prosperity is accountable for our present depression, and the least understood by my fellow- toilers, I lay before your readers the position of the case. From 1816 to 1873 England was the only country that adopted a single gold coinage, silver being only a legal tender up to forty shillings. During these fifty-seven years what an unparalled opportunity she had in coverting her silver into gold money and draining into her coffers the gold avail able throughout the world, and this she would doubtless have ultimately accom plished had not Germany in 1S73 have stopped her by herself adopting gold mono metallism, and forcing France, America, and other nations to a like procedure—a procedure that brought 300,000,000 more people dependent on gold who previously were dependent on silver coinage, entailing a fresh demand on gold of some £234,000,000 in excess of the annual supply. The sequel was pal...

Dave Hargrave's Mission. CHAPTER III. (continued). The command was sufficient for the old mau, and in a few moments there was a plentiful supply of cold meat, bread, cheese, and beer, and" during the time they w ere satisfying their appetite the gar villous old fellow told Dave about the removal and death of his mother, and also a little about the youthful patron of Rupert. The poor lad was overcome at the news so suddenly broken to him, but it determined him to leave the country, for he felt to stop in it would most likely only bring disgrace on Rupert; so, after having partaken of some refreshments, he sat down and wrote a long letter to his elder and more fortunate brother. He explained the cause of his absence, and gave all the details of what had occurred from the time cf parting to his interview with old Luke Russell; he also told him of his iutention of going to Aus tralia, and his hopes of doing something there. He prayed him not to take any more trouble on his account, and ...

The voice stopped suddenly, and was suc ceeded by a peculiar burring, whirring sound. With awakened interest Dave moved on, and there, in the middle of the path under the arch, sat a medium-sized elderly man on one of those peculiarly con structed machines generally used by itinerant tinkers. Then the burring was easily ac counted for, for the machine was in motion and the tinker himself was grinding a pair of scissors, and during the intervals of his work was amusing himself by thrilling out the melody which had first'drawn Dave's attention. He was cheerful looking, with a merry twinkle in his eye {for he had but the one, or as he graphically expressed him self afterwards, " he was wanting an eye)." Be looked up with his o...

Current Topics. Single Tax.—A. " single taxer" from Tasmania writes and renews support be cause, as he says, he admires the tone of our paper. He is not satisfied with the pro minence we give to the land question, but hopes that we shall by-and-bye go stronger. He also sympathises with the troubles which are bound to beset the management of a paper, whose supporters are so diverse in their views. The choice of candidates by the labor party he condemns in no uncertain manner, and instances Premier Kingston as a man who will be shut out by the late plebiscite, notwithstanding his precept and practice as a democrat. Reading Galore.—Some people are hard to please. In the same breath they ask us to give them " more reading, and make the columns lighter, you know, by spacing out a bit." As a matter of fact we acknowledge the heaviness, but excuse it on account of the desire we have to give plenty of reading matter.

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 1 February 1895

TO THE EDITOR, Sir—We take the Herald, for we sym pathise with its cause. We like the paper, and hope that from two sheets it will soon grow into four. I think it nice of you to give us women a column wherein we can ex pound our views. Besides that there are such a nice lot of short, interesting para graphs, that it is so handy to whip up and read during leisure moments in the kitchen, while preparing Bob's dinner, and one can get through a good deal of "News Con densed" while nursing baby, and before the young codger becomes aware that your attention is diverted from himself, and resents the indignity by clutching the sheet and slashing it in two. I hope you won't feel disgusted at such an admission. I read the other day that many a woman will put a number five foot into a number four shoe, and decorate the other end of her anatomy with a hat as big as a cartwheel, but I don't believe that men credit all the funny little things that are said about women, do you?
