MAN BETTER OFF ALONE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 February 1895

MAN BETTER OFF ALONE. ' Paddle Your Own Canoo' says : Deci- I dedly not. If there were leaa marriages thore i would bo less misery. I admire a man who, not in a position to marry, romaina single. After all, what ia marriage? A lifetime of misery nine cases cut of ten. Why should single men be taxed inoroly because they prefer to live a quiet and peaceful single lifo? Iu onoolros lottor toe Uioie ib quoted to show that God msde Adam, and then Eve, his wife, a3 it was not pood for man to bo alono. I think he would havo' been much better off alono, for Eve only brought sorrow, as mo3t womon do. Life is what you make it. If you like to fall in love and marry on nothing, and bring forth misery, well and good ; you make your bod, and so you lie On it. If you remain ainglo lifo is not so bad for man or woman. You have poaoo if nothing moro, which is a great blessing.

IT "WOULD MAKE MARRIAGE A DREARY NECESSITY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 February 1895

IT WC)ULD MAKE MARRIAGE A DREARY NECESSITY. ' W.E.B.' says no, for economical, social, moral, and other reasons, and thns enlarges upon the subject: — To choose tho lesser evil in life represents tho best philosophy, but if it be found that married men were carrying moro than a fair sharo of the community's burdenB, it does not at all follow that a tax on the single men would represent tho remedy. Marriage is a voluntary institution, and I think that it will bo admitted that it is desirable it should always be retained as suoh. The result of tho tax would roduce tho marriage Btate from a matter of oheerful ohoico to one largely of droary neoossity, and, moreover, it would keep a lot of tho best type of in en out of it, by appealing to that sense of obstinaoy and perversity that so many determined natures are prone to. Another quostion arises, ' Would this tax be imposed to in crease the system of marriago? or to raise revenue out of the bachelors?' Hardly the former, I think ; becau...

CRIMINAL TO INCREASE POPULATION. ' Kapai tu Waliine ' writes : — Assuming the tax would be levied for the purpose of forcing marriage, and, consequently, increas ing the population, I should say emphatically no. Notwithstanding what theorists may Bay to the contrarv. it is mv oninion that wo aro already suffering from a congested population, and to needlessly inorease it would, I think, be little lesB than criminal. Politically, the tax would be no more just that that on beards levied in the raign of 'George H.

MAN PROPOSES AND WOMAN REFUSES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 February 1895

MAN PROPOSES AND WOMAN j REFUSES. ' Single Harness,' who evidently speaks from experience, thus pithily enms up When a man cotnes to the age of 22 ho looks out for a wife. After keeping company with a younsr person for about twelve mouths he iinds that she has deceived him, and takes up with Bome other fellow. Then he makes a fresh start with No. 2, and he finds that she has him on tho string likewise. Of ooutse, a breach of promise oafee would be out of the question, so he decides to remain single. Why, then, should he pay a tax ? A single man, as a rule, spends more money than a married man, for in the evening and on holidays he goes out for amusement, and oan always spend his money, Where a married man stays at homo and eavos. Tho man has the asking for a wife, but tho girl can refuse, so after asking three or four he ought to remain single.

TO BE DETERMINED BY THE LADIES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 February 1895

TO BE DETERMINED BY THE LADIES. 'Waiting' Writes: — I utterly fail to see how this means of raising revenue can be sub stantiated from any point of view. Men do not remain single from choice, but from com pulsion, and more often through peouniary incapacity to Garry out their ideas of a sottled . form of life than from failure to receive the thrilling inspiration of oonjugal love. Man does not live by love alone. We want all dosirablo persons to unite, of course, but always providing they can see their way clear to meet their worldly obligations as well. Now, a tax on bachelors would diminish their saving power, and thus postpone the time when they would enter the bonds of matri mony. And I am sure that tho country would lose more by delayed marriages than, on the ofchor hand, they might reooive in taxes. I would suggest, however, if it is desirable to settle the matter once tind for all, that a vote be taken of all the single young Iadibs as to whether tho bachelors . should be tax...

"THE CHIVALROUS BACHELOR." [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 February 1895

' THE CHIVALROUS BACHELOR.' ' Anti-Taxer ' writos The majority of bachelors aro suffering members of tho com munity, not at all entitled to the opprobrium that is too generally heaped upon them by un thinking persono. The reason that there are bo many men in Now South' Wales of mar riageable age remaining single is that they are too chivalrous to ask a woman to shave a life, if not of poverty, at least one of anxiety, as to the beBt means to employ to enable them to live decently and keep the 'duns' from the door. If a return could be prepared, showing the amount of salary eaoh individual bachelor earns, it would be found in the bulk of caseB totally inadequate to support a wife in oomfort. Put the bachelors in the way to earn sufficient to support a wife in comfort, and it will then ho found that thoy will turn naturally towards matrimony . Tho imposition of snob a tax would oauee the taxed to consider themselves ias martyrs, and thue bo the means of adding further bitterness to li...

"MAN'S INSINCERITY TO WOMAN." [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 February 1895

'MAN'S INSINCERITY TO WOMAN.' ' Josephine' has this to say: — All eligible single men should be taxed. I am 25 years of age, and for the past seven years have come t in oontact with men the majority of whom wore in a position to marry, but for obvious reasons remained single, being too much dis posed to trifle With gitls' affection and con fidences, fickle and unreliable, aud content, with a looso and fast life until they arrive at an age whoa they become ineligible, and re quire a nurse instead of a wife. Marriage then with a fresh young woman becomeB a matter of convenience rathorthan love. Girls are not all blessed with dowries, but there are girls who posseR8 higher qualities and capabilities, which eminently fit them to become eligible partners in life, bat who arc allowed to livo and die in obsonrity owing to men's insihoerity and tardiness to enter the marriage state. Therefore, I say, tax all single men, for by so doing they will marry, and social life to ft great extent wil...

THE HANDFUL OF THINGS WE KNOW. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 February 1895

THE HANDFUL OF THINGS WE KNOW. Several years ago an Amorioan humorist and poet published some verses called Little Breeches.' This was an odd name given to a very small boy who was caught out in a tre mendous snowstorm, and finally found in somo bay quite a distance from the house. However the boy got there bothered every body to explain. It was certain ho never could have walked. So his father said the angels must have done it. ' They just stoopod down and toted him to whero it waB safe and warm,' he said. The poetry about it (sup posed to havo been writton by the youngster'B father) starts off in this way : — I don't go much on religion, I never ain't had no show ; But I've a middling tight grip, sir, On the handful of things I know. .That's it; the handful of things we know. There aren't many cf 'ein, but there aro a fow. And ono of them is this : That for a hundred results there is only one cause. Nature develops and makes differences ; never a new forco. , Hore, for example, is...

HONORARY AUDITORS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 February 1895

HONORARY AUDITORS. Br reports of the last meeting of the Cabramatta and Canley Yale Council it would seem that that body, like the cele brated Mrs. Gilpin, has a frugal mind, and it iR desirous of getting its accounts audited for nothing, a resolution having been adopted auditors be allowed no re muneration for sorvices rendered. Wo can hardly hope, for its own sake, that the Council in question will succeed in its economical aspiration in this respect, as experience has shown that cheap, not to say gratuitous, auditing is worth j ust about as much as it costs. There is hardly a more important function in connection with the system of local govern ment than the effective revision of the municipal accounts, and it is hardly likely that auditors worth their salt aro going to givo their time and abilities to making a thorough audit with out any remuneration. The fact that a Council can coiue to such a decision is itsolf evidence of one of the numerous del'ectB in tho existing Municipal...

THE COAL TROUBLES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 February 1895

THE COAL TUOIIRLE8. Thisrii could hardly have been a moro decisive termination to the labor troubles which have af&ioted the Newcastle distriot for some time past than the result of the special meeting of the Miners' Delegate Board, held on 'Wednesday last. It appears that at this meeting tho general secretary reported that the whole of the funds standing to the credit of the Miners' Asso ciation consisted of »3172 6s, including strike and general funds. After a long discussion, it was resolved, 'That all strikes in the district be declared off.' This was carried by 08 votes to 52. Whilst it is impossible to withhold sympathy with the miners who have carried ou such a long and hopeless struggle, it cannot bo deniod that tne result was exactly what has been long foreseen, aud that it has been brought about by ill-advised and useless strikes, w h ich never had any chance of succeeding, but which possibly, depleted the miners' resources and shattered thoir organisation.

INSPECTION OF BOILERS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 February 1895

INSPECTION OF BOILERS. The explosion of a boiler at a boiling-down works at Gunnedah, by which seven persons were seriously injured, directs renewed at tention to a subject which has formed part of the programme of every Government which has come into power for years past, but which seems never to advance beyond its preliminary stages. The necessity for an inspection of land-boilers is undoubtedly shown by such incidents as that referred to, for, although, fortunately, they are not of frequent occurrence, they q,re usually both demonstrative and fatal in their effects, and probably in most instances arise from causea which might have boen remedied had an adequate inspection been enforced. Unfortunately, in all legislation of this kind, it is never considered to be urgent until Boms casualty or fatality occurs to excite publio opinion and jog the sluggish memories of legislator^, who are fully occupied with, to then), more interesting subjects. As, however, thero can be none more imp...

THE OLD MAN IRRITABLE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 February 1895

THli 0111 MAN IBBITABLE. There is ono particular authority in New South Wales on what is states manlike aud constitutional. True, he is a self-appointed authority, but he has bo often claimed tho knowledge arid the title that they have vary gonerally beeu conceded him. That authority is Sir Henry Parjces. He will on occasion speak in the most dignified manner on the unstatesman like or unconstitutional conduct of his political foes, at the same time conveying the impression that he is sahs reproche. He has bean much shocked at Sir George's siilphurous l&bguage in the States^ and Mr. Keid'b Blang has moi'e than once pro voked the strongest condemnation of the Knight of Annandale. This not withstanding, it is a faet that for low abuse of ooponents Sir Henry Parses can hardly be surpassed by any member of the Assembly. And that is saying a very great deal. 9 0 « The latest evidence of this facility of the veteran's has been afforded in connection with interviews published durin...
