LANDOWNERS, BONDHOLDERS, AND SWEATERS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 27 May 1899

LANDOWNERS, BONDHOLDERS, AND SWEATERS. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—In reference to your paragraph in " Passing Notes," in your issue of the 6th inst., about bondholders and royalty, the whole thing may be summed up thusly:— The Government of England is composed of landlords, bondholders, and sweaters, and royalty is a kind of figurehead or golden calf for the common people or slaves to worship, and the established church is an institution established in the sixteenth century by the landlords, sweaters, &c., of the time to chloroform the slaves into submissiou to their drivers, and it has continued the chloroforming business ever since. The landlords, bondholders, and sweaters are the vampire bats who live on the industry and blood of the people. I am, Sir, &e . JOHN GULLIVER. Adelaide.

THE BUNDALEER WORKS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 27 May 1899

THE BUND ALEE R WORKS. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—Having seen several statements in the press regarding this place, and believing them all to be more or less exaggerated, I think it only a fair thing to give you my experience Before leaving Adelaide some weeks since we signed an order authorising the engineer to deduct the fare to Gulnare (12-j. 7d.) from our wages. We were met at that place by one of the boarding-house keepers, who carried our swags out for us gratis. On arrival at the camp we were met by a caretaker (not a policeman), who showed us our tents. These were, I con sider, simply disgraceful, being not pitched but chueked up anyhow The greater number then were without flies, those that boasted a fly having it laid on the ridge-pole over the tent, probably to find out which would wear out first. The walls were secured by a peg at each eyelet, a piece of cord forming the connection. Of course between the pegs there was an open space from three to six inches high, probably for ven...

THE SOUTHERN CROSS AND THE HERALD. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 27 May 1899

THE SOUTHERN CROSS AND THE HERALD. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—In the Southern Cross of May 12 I noticed a bitter charge against The Herald for casting slurs on the Passionist Fathers, &e. Now to think that such an article could be penned by a man supposed to be the mouthpiece of the Catholic body is almost beyond belief. I am a Catholic and a subject of the State, and recognise no man as such so long as he exhibits bitterness and hatred. I would strip such a man of all honors, and stamp him as one unworthy to lead any section of the people, much less as a member of parliament. I have been a constant reader of The Herald, and am in a position to say that there has appeared nothing in your paper that could raise the ire of any sound Catholic. As a Catholic and a working man 1 am pleased when 1 hear that individuals such as those to whom I refer were defeated at the poll. I am a strong believer in the capitation grant, but do not expect everybody to see eye to eye with me od this parti...

THE LAW OF SUPPLY AND DEMAND. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 27 May 1899

THE LAW OF SUPPLY AND DEMAND. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—Political economists of the old school tell us that prices and wages are fixed by the law of supply and demand. How was it that early in the eighties, when there was a surplus of 223,000 bushels of wheat that Loudon quotations were 45s. per quarter, and later on when there was a deficiency of 26,000 bushels for the world's requirements the price was only 26s. 4d. per quarter. Coming nearer home we see applications invited for the position of Town Clerk, the demand is for one, but there are 47 appli cants, so the supply is 47 times as great as the demand. Yet the salary, which is £450 per annum, does not fall one penny. And further, we see 54 vacant seats in parliament, the supply for those being 119, and could easily be more, yet the members' salaries do not fall. We are told that it might be possible to fix prices on commodities that would keep, but not in any case on perishable goods. But is not man a perishable quan tity, who would...

OVER PRODUCTION. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 27 May 1899

OVER PRODUCTION. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—I have noticed in the press recently assertions that over-production of wheat and other commodities is the cause of the prevailing low prices. I cinnot resist a reference to such rubbish. I trust your readers give but little heed to the mumblings of self-styled political economists who prate of over-production. Can there be over-pro duction of food when so many are suffering the pangs of hunger? Over-production of clothing and fabrics, while our streets swarm with men, women, and children who are not half clad, and who shiver through the night beneath the clothing they have worn by day? Over-production of respectable dwellings, when not half the families of our fair-sized towns and cities have adequate habitations, not to speak of that large class in our large towns whose lodgings are utterly incompa tible with decency and morality ? I contend, sir, there is no over-production, save of articles pernicious and poisonous, such as alcoholic liquors, ...

BOY LABOR IN THE GOVERNMENT RAILWAYS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 27 May 1899

BOY LABOR IN THE GOVERNMENT RAILWAYS. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—Permit me to draw attention to the enormous quantity of boys employed on the South Australian Railways. I watched the pay-table at Port Adelaide not very long since, and I saw some twenty boys being paid. On enquiry I was told they all worked for the Railway Department. This is not the only station. Glanville has 6 boys, Largs Bay 2, Semaphore 2, Alberton 2, Woodville 2, Kilkenny 1 (and very often 2), Croydon 2, Bowden 2 or 3. The Govern ment railways will be worked presently solely by boy labor. A nice example to show private firms ! Mr. Morris, in one of his electioneering speeches at Rosewater, referred to Port Adelaide station as the boy station. Well he might ! After all that has been said on the floor of the House by Labor members, I think the Commissioner must be trying to run his head against the stone wall. Now, sir, as one of the travel ling public, I think it high time we made our voices heard and with no uncertain ...

EFFECTIVE VOTING. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 27 May 1899

EFFECTIVE VOTING. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—Many thanks for your excellent report in the last issue of The Herald of Miss Spenee's lecture last Sunday evening, at the Democratic Club, on the Hare-Spence system of effective voting. It seems to me that a second thought is not necessary to point out its value and importance, especially from a political and social standpoint; yet in our midst there are intelligent men who, either from ignorance or prejudice, take exception to it. They say that the idea is a good one, but impracticable. If you press them for their judgment, all they reply is that it won't work. Like the old story— " The reason I cannot tell, But I do no like thee, Dr. Fell." In more ways than one it is a working man's question. Take for instance the election for the Federal Convention, when not a single Labor member was returned. Under Miss Spenee's plan of dividing the colony into districts two at least of the nominees of trade and labor would have been elected. There are many...

PORT ADELAIDE UNITED LABOR PARTY. COMPLIMENTARY DINNER TO MEMBERS FOR THE DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 27 May 1899

PORT ADELAIDE UNITED LABOR PARTY. Complimentary Dinner to Members fob the District. On Wednesday evening the Portland Sub committee of the Port Adelaide section of the United Labor Party tendered the mem bers for the district—Messrs. I. MacGillivray and W. 0. Archibald—a complimentary dinner. The Hon. W. A. Robinson having a prior appointment sent a letter of apology and regret at his inability to attend. Mr. W. Smith, who presided over about sixty persons, said they had nothing to be ashamed of. The Portland Committee had made a house-to-house visitation of the dis trict, and had obtained 1.024 promises to vote, of which 1,018 were actually redeemed. That was a record to be proud of. He asked the company to drink to the health of the two members for the district. The state of the poll was a credit to Port Adelaide. Mr. MacGillivrav, in returning thanks, remarked that there was wanting that night the right wing of the Party—the " light brigade," the ladies—but he hoped to have an op...

THE CRY OF WINTER. "GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAILY BREAD." THE TASMANIAN "CLIPPER" ON THE WAR PATH. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 27 May 1899

THE CRY OF WINTER, "Give Us This Day oub daily Bread." the tasmania^ "clipper," ox the war path. It has been often remarked that Tasmania, with all her natural advan tages of climate, soil, mineral deposits, and permanent running waters, appears to be in a state of semi-stagnation. The Hobart Clipper, with whom we shake hands right loyally, is evidently deter mined to stir things up a bit, and the following article cut from a recent issue is an evidence of that determination. It will be read with interest even by South Australians :— Under our industrial system Capital is the sovereign of Labor, and although the laborer is encouraged to cherish certain illusions about industrial free dom, yet his slavery is absolute and undeniable, his only liberty being the right to starve. Capital endeavors to buy Labor at the lowest wage rate, and the only chance of the latter is to organise and so maintain relatively high prices. Further, as the Labor supply is con tinuous, capitalists have rare...

THE WRONG PIG BY THE EAR. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 27 May 1899

THE WROtfG PIG BY T£E EAR. The statesman was in an agitated frame of mind. So was the exploiter. Both paced uneasily up and down the cor ridors of time. "What's troubling you?" asked the statesman. The exploiter leaned against the wall. " The unemployed," he gasped. The statesman turned pale. " What of them ?" he cried. The exploiter recovered the use of his limbs with a mighty effort. He said: " What will we do with the unem ployed ? " The statesman laughed bitterly. " You've got the wrong pig by the ear," he replied. " What will the unemployed do with us ? " —The Star. Mr. E. Morton, in the House of Commons, moved an amendment to the customary address in reply to the Queen's speech, expressing regret that the speech contains no indication "that measures will be sub mitted dealing with the ownership, tenure, and taxation of land in towns." In the debate (a resume of which occupies nearly two pages of the Glasgow Single Tax), only two or three spoke against it, and they hardly prete...

THE LABOR MOVEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 27 May 1899

THE LABOR MOVEMENT. The Labor movement in its broadest terms is the effort of men to live the lives of men. It is the systematic, organised struggle of the masses to obtain, primarily, more leisure and larger economic resources ; but that is not by any means all, because the end and the purpose of it all is a richer existence for the toilers, and that with respect to soul, mind and body. Half conscious though it may be, the Labor movement is a force pushing toward the attainment of the pur pose of humanity ; in other words the end of the growth of mankind, namely, the full and harmonious development in each indi vidual of all human faculties—the faculties of working, perceiving, ' knowing, loving ; the development, in short, of whatever capabilities of good there may be in man. The true significance of the Labor movement is this : It is an attempt to bring to pass the idea of human development which has animated sages prophets, and poets of all ages ; the idea that a time must come ...

A CASE FOR AN APPEAL BOARD. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 27 May 1899

A CASE FOP- AN APPEAL BOARD. Aii interesting case, which, if the facts are as stated, shows the necessity for an Appeal Board, such as that now being asked for by our railway men, was heard at the Jamestown Police Court on April 27. R. A. Cilenlo, railway stationmaster at Jamestown, sued S. J. Hill, a porter at the same station, for assault. Of course, both sides of the case were heard, and, as usual, the accounts varied considerably. However, as the justices trying the case believed the defendant's version, we content ourselves with quoting it from an account in the Agriculturalist and Review. It is as follows : Samuel G. Hill, porter at the Jamestown station, said on the 25th he asked Mr. Cilento to be allowed to get off on the 29th ; on being asked the reason he said he wanted to barrack for Healv on election day. Eventually he acknowledged that he was going to act as a scrutineer for Mr. Healy. Mr. Cilento taunted him with being unable to act as a scrutineer, as he could neither...
