CUT-THROAT COMPETITION, AND HOW IT IS WORKED. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 1 February 1895

CUTTHROAT COMPETITION, HOW IT IS WORKED. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—A good many wonder how tlie above is done, so allow me a iew« lines to explain how it comes about in this place of indi vidualism to the parties concerned. A firm will have some 20 tons of macliiuery to send to West Australia. Their freight clerk goes to each of four or five Companies aud gets prices quoted. He then returns to the lowest and begins something in this style: —" Well, I have had an offer to take that stuff to Fremantle at £ s. d., quoting per haps 3s. per ton less than the lowest figure quoted, but we would rather send it with your boat if you will accept the figure," and in nine cases out of ten it is accepted, and thus one Company is played against the other. It was only this morning that a case came under my notice. A lumper was sent for to tender for a job in the dock, but he flatly refused to give in a price, and plainly told tlie party they only wanted a price given, so that they could have some pull on ...

EARLY-CLOSING. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 8 February 1895

E ATtLY -CLOSING. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—Speaking with a "little authority" on the present aspect of the above topic you assert that it is in self-defence that Hundle-streetJ drapers] intend reverting to the old system of late hours on Saturday nights; that this decision was arrived at directly they recognised that local trades were everywhere being worked satis factorily, and because they imagined (to suit their purpose) these young enterprises were worked by those who, as assistants, took a lively interest in the Early-Closing Association. Now, Sir, you have been good enough to assist their desires by designating suburban traders "proprietors of the most selfish ^-pj-dev'.for whom early-closing now has no charm, let me, as one of those unfortunate proprietors, inform you that the idea of early-closing never charmed me to the exteutit does at present, and why? lie cause of recognising the growing tendency to shop late in the suburbs. I regret this fact deeply, not merely affecting to d...

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 8 February 1895

TO THE EDITOR. Sir—In your last issue on above subject you say there is " something in it." You are no doubt right; iu my opinion there is gigantic fraud iu it. If silver is doubled in value by the will of the various Governments of the world who will gain ? Why silver-mine owners, for it is not pro posed to nationalize the mines. Suppose silver mines were nationalized, who would lose ? Would it not be partial repudiation of our debt ? I do not believe these colonies will ever pay their way unless the interest now charged on loans is reduced at least one-half. But why repudiate one-half of our debt to enrich mineowners. At the present time about 35 oz. of silver is worth 1 oz. of gold. Bimetallists or shareholders in silver miues want the world to declare that they shall get 1 oz. of gold for oz. of silver. Would it not be as reasonable to say—"You shall pay labor double wages, or you shall pay the farmer double price for his wheat, &c." Do we really require another medium o...

People's Column. BIMETALLISM. HO THE EDITOR. Sir—The good ship " Bimetallism," on ivbich I wish my fellow toilers to embark, is built of timber of a thousand years, seasoned by age, and held together by rivets the most powerful, to wit, America, Ger many, France, Italy, Holland, and the other European nationalities.

What chance, then, in the combat lias that poor ship " Gold monometallism," built of sap ling of some tweuty years' growth, held together by one singie rivet—England's bankers—whose armament is cast in self aggrandizement and wrought iu greed, whose ammunition is self-interest,, whose sails are unable to withstand the ...

Socialism and Liberty. [COMMUNICATED.] [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 8 February 1895

Socialism and Liberty. ["Communicated.] What is ? It is a plan for secur ing equal rights opportunities for all; it is also the idea «s£ /Jevelopment. Socialists contemplate society subject to change, and it recognises three., not more, stages in our economic progress. Slavery, serfdom, and the exfctuig system *yf wage labor, which is to be superseded by ;a beSfer order of things, and socialists find isn ievoLation a suitable expression for their tiew- of development. To many thinkers the doctrine of evolu tion has suggested the strongest reasons for doubting' sfche irwiti and reasonableness of the socialistic theory, and HO doubt our friend, Tom Harry, wiU ask iww {&)). the doctrine of the struggle for .existence fce consistent •with the harmony of interests «Q£Ut^Lj>j£$ed by socialism. Individual competition, will be said, is amply the social and economic form for the struggle for existence. Is not competition, therefore, the prime condition of social progress, and, con...

The Murtho Co-operative Village Association. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 8 February 1895

The Murtho Co-operative Village Association. A- from tlie above association sup plies us with following particulars of progress made there t-rr" Qtyr settlement is located on the Murray, about lit above Renmark, on the opposite side of the river, at an elevation of about 120 ft. above low W£jrer level, so that we can look over a big stretcii of water right on to Renmark. The block consists of 2,000 acres of what experts say is the best soil on the river in South Australia, and grading as it does naturally from, the river, renders it easy to irrigate wSwig once the water is on the top of the cilifs. When first w& c^une here the Renmark residents laughed at tlie ides, of getting the water up, but when they saw a sujaii hsiu,<jl-: pump, worked by one man for an hour, 111! a '200'gallon tank located on the top, they began to think we were not such fools as we looked, and that by the aid of steam and proper appliances, we might successfully irrigate.

Trade and Labor Unions. Journeymen Bdtciiebs' Union of S.A.— A meeting of the above was held at the Selborne Hotel on Tuesday, 5 inst., Mr. E. Kasehageu being in tlie chair. There was a fair atteudaiice. Several complaints were made in reference to some of the master ; batchers making their men work after i hours, also on Sundays, which is not in accordance with the agreement drawn up between the master butchers and the journeymen. It was proposed that several of the master butchers be written to about net complying with the rules; also that a smoke social be held Tuesday, February 19, and each society be asked to send two dele gates, and also several labor members be asked to attend.

Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 8 February 1895

Notes. [Br PHILLIBtT3T.EE.] "If Christ came to Chicago," wrote I Mr. Stead, and with, all re\-erence I say, j if Christ came to Adelaide, or any other ! town or city of Australia, I wonder what He would think about some of the Churches. I was in one the other day where the assembling together of the congregation appeared to be a very gorgeous affair. There was no lack of costly jewellery, furbelowed silks, powder, paint, perfume, pride, and priggery. The way some of the females drew their robes away from the con taminating influences of their poorer sisters was a study. The most noticeable feature in the gathering was the marked lack of honest, devotion. It was all posturing and bending. Of course the sermon, as sermons go in such places, was a tremendous affair, bristling with nice points and digressions, and theo logically a teazer. But the reflection again intrudes—"If Christ came to . Adelaide I" Apropos of this kind of theme, the other day I heard that a great and notable democ...

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 8 February 1895

TO THE EDITOR. Sir—I should be grateful for the oppor tunity to say how thoroughly I agree with " Wanappe" in all she has written concern ing the Herald. My brother takes it, and we both enjoy reading it very much. I have been rather surprised to see that the " Women's Column" has not been utilized to the full, and disappointed too ! for surely the need is great that women should take as prominent and helpful a part as possible in the affairs of our common life, and when the opportunity is specially given them they should avail themselves of it speedily; and I hope as this paper becomes more widely known that the women who have any thought, pure and true, to utter in relation to the -evils oi to-day will do so right bravely. Oh, for a tongue of fire to speak against that terrible evil—the prostituiiou of women. I stand with " Wanappe" in affirming that it will be women alone who trample down this social evil. I wish it were possible to reach the hearts of hardened aurl fallen womanh...

Women's Column. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 8 February 1895

Women's Column. Suffering for others strengthens our own powers of endurance; we lose tliem if we do not exercise tliem. The waist is an infallible index to the moral worth of a woman ; veiy i' ttle of tlie latter survives the pressure of a tightened corset. Beauty is a great power, and it may be used for good as well as for evil. Beauty is beneficient, as well as malign. Angels aie allowed to be beautiful, and our highest ideal of manhood is associated with pli} as well as moral perfection. \ es . be sure that beauty is a legitimate means ot grace. Choose Ye.—You are asked to choose now, you are called to the Higher ^e;y°u must know that you are being called speciaUy—this moment. And what if it should be for the last time What if, aftei this, you are deprived of the power to choose, and forced by that which isevil in you to wander away from all that is good and pure and pleasant, into fee turmojl and trouble, the falseness, the illusion, and the 1 maddening unrest of the other liie...
