The Adulteration of Portland Cement. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 15 February 1895

The Adulteration of Port land Cement. Quite a scare has been occasioned among the users of Portland cement in Great Britain by the discovery that various manu facturers have been largely adulterating their product by the addition and admixture of certain foreign materials. The principal firms engaged in the trade feeling it necessary to take action in the matter, caused a meeting to be convened at Cannon street shortly before the last mail left. The ultimate results were somewhat curious, and the revelations made at this meeting rather astonished many of the manufac turers themselves. In the first place rumors had got about that some Belgian and other foreign makers whose competition had seriously affected British cement manufac turers were freely mixing tliciv cement with foreign substances of a useless, if not positively deleterious, nature. Of course for large public woi'ks, where certain tests are rigidly required and applied, such adulterated cement would be useless. In the vas...

Democratic Societies. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 15 February 1895

Democratic Societies. Democratic Clui,—The lecturer at tlie Democratic Club last Sunday evening was Mr. J. A. McPherson, M.P., who took for his subject, " Our Pastoral Industry ami Pastoral Legislation." The attendance was good, and Mr. T. Price, M.P.. occupied the chair. Mr. McPhersou said the pastoral industry was an important one to South Australia, and the large number of Acts which had been passed from time to time dealing with our pastoral country was an evidence that Parliament had acknowledged it as -such. Although squatting at the present time was not in a very nourishing condition, there was no doubt but that in the earlier days of the colony squatters made fortunes, and with a rise in the price of wool they would do so again. The diffi culties of successful occupation, however, began to increase in proportion as the squatter was driven to make room for the agriculturist, and had to move away from the seaboard and penetrate further into the interior, where the yearly rainf...

Democratic Societies. Democratic Club.—On Sunday evening a lecture, entitled " Private Land Owner ship—a Blessing or a Blight," was delivered by Mr. C. Proud before the Democratic j Club, Mr. T. Price, M.P., presiding over a ! large attendance. The lecturer took the J South Australian Company as a typical ; landow ner, and said tliat while many of its tenants ivere scarcely able to obtain a decent living out of the land with the. present low price of produce, the Company was able to send away something like £30,000 to its shareholders, who were mostly abseniees in England. He gave other illustrations of the effect of private land ownership, concluding with Russell Wallace's statement that " our land system is the fundamental cause of the persistent misery and poverty of the workers. Root and branch it is evil, its fruits are deadly poison, cut it down, why cumbereth it the ground?" He also stated that the new party in England were mostly in favor of the abolition of private ownershi...

Homestead Block System in South Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 22 February 1895

Homestead Block System in South Australia. There has just been issued from the office of the Inspector of Homestead Blocks (Eusebius Wilson) a paper containing some notes on the introduction, progress, and results of the homestead block system iu South Australia, which will be appreciated by those in search of information respecting the localities, soils, &c., where these blocks are situated. The writer, in his opening remarks, says " that the complex idea, assuming a somewhat indefinite shape, yet underlying the action of those who were the initiators of the system of homestead blocks in South Australia, takes, in the process of crystallisation, somewhat the form of the following propositions :— 1st. That every man has the right to as much of the earth's surface as is necessary for the erection of a home for himself and his family. 2nd. That every man has the light to the i opportunity for full employment. 3rd. That he has the right to employ the whole or any portion of his...

Trade Unions as a Reforming Force. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 22 February 1895

Trade Unions as a Reform ing Force. Mr. Foster Coates, late mauaging editor of the New York Mail and Express, advised every working man, whether an editor, reporter, printer, bricklayer, moulder, car penter, cigarinaker, or of any other occu pation, to join a trade union. He stated that most of the reforms that the people now enjoy, such as the constant shortening of the hours of labor, the strong tendency of wages to rise, and the general bettering of the conditions of labor, can be traced directly to the indefatigable agitation and work of trade unions. To-day they were agitating reforms that are badly needed, and were untiring in their devotion to great principles of which the majority of the people have never even dreamed. He had known men who were so devoted to trade unionism that they had suffered for the necessaries of life rather than violate the principles of their trade organization^. tfe h$d seen Jften go out on strike and tramp on foot to the next town rather than dishon...
