FATAL ACCIDENT AT WALLAROO MINES. AN INSECURE BOARD. INQUEST CONSIDERED UNNECESSARY. A CASE FOR EMPLOYERS' LIABILITY IN ANY PROPERLY LEGISLATED STATE. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 27 May 1899
FATAL ACCIDENT AT WALLAROO MINES. An Insecure Board. INQUEST CONSIDERED UNNECESSARY. a CASE FOR EMPLOYERS' LIABILITY IX ANY PROPERLY LEGISLATED STATE. The accident which terminated fatally to Mr. R. Sandford, on Saturday, was reported in last issue when little hopes were enter tained for the poor fellow's life. As stated he was working at the 225 platt in Taylor Shaft when a casing-board, about 10ft. long, came away (about 70ft. above), and after hitting against the opposite side of the shaft struck him on the neck, breaking it. Also his collar bone was broken. After being struck the poor fellow rushed up a pass to avoid further accident, and the chain of the kibble struck him on one of his ankles. This was durin/ the night shift of Thurs day, 11th iustant. He was conveyed home as doon as possible and medically attended, but nothing could be done to save his life, and on Saturday morning he died. Mr. James Darling, J.P., was officially informed of the sad occurrence by the police. H...
LEPROUS QUEENSLAND. CHILDREN IS THE LAZARET. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 27 May 1899
LEPROUS QUEENSLAND. Children is the Lazaret. This journal readily falls in with the views of its esteemed contemporary, the Charters Towers Eagle, in asking for an official in quiry into a very serious matter which is said to have occurred at Thursday Island. The Eagle, in the course of au interveiw with Labor member Givens, refers to it as follows :—" On the painful subject of the notorious Thursday Island lymph horror, Mr. Givens gave some interesting informa tion. The Advocate, as will be remembered, was the first paper to take up the matter, at a very appreciable risk, too. The whole Queensland Ministerialist press rushed into the breach, headed by the Courier, and called the Advocate a liar, and a calumniator, and other names that aren't to be found in Webster. The Torres Straits Pilot, of Thursday Island, first ignored the news altogether, and when at last forced to open its eyes wept copiously over what it was pleased to designate the Advocate's ruthless and coarse intrusion ...
A GOLDFIELD STORY. ONE OF THE RUSH. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 27 May 1899
A GOLDFIELD STORY. One of the Rush. " Gold, gold, gold ! was the all-absorbing topic on every side. Of coarse, it was from. West Australia that the news of the big find came, and thus it was that when the rush to the West took place I was amongst the gold-hunters," said Mr. Finely to a special Mr. Finely. (Sketched from life.) representa tive, "and, in deed, I spent two years on the fields. We had much in the way of hardships to battle with, and roughing it was the order of both ^ d a y and i ■ night. Short ly after my arrival the symptoms of rheumatism unmistakably manifested themselves, and being so many miles away from home and friends, I naturally viewed with alarm sickness in any shape, more particularly as at this time West Australia was famous, not only for its gold, but also as a plague spot. My illness got to work quickly.'"' "Presumably your trouble was greatly due to exposure ? " "Yes; undoubtedly. Severe pains in the joints and muscles gripped me all over, for I was atta...

THE GREAT SIN. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 27 May 1899
THE GREAT SIN. In tbe hospital at Winton Lay a Unionist, and he Whom the squatter men, his masters, Call, satirically, " free." And the one was still and patient, He was honest, he was brave, And the other was afrighted With the phantoms of the grave. He had cut the union prices, And the sin was on his head, As he travelled with the other To the silent shearing shed. Came the parson and he knelt him By the Unionist, but he Said, " You'd better take tbe scab first, Guess he wants it worse than me. " I've a lot of things to answer That are pretty bad," he said, " But J never robbed a fellow-— Never stole another's bread." —The Worker.
TRADE AND LABOR SOCIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 27 May 1899
TRADE AND LABOR SOCIETIES. Port Adelaide Committee, U.L.P.— Although the hurly-burly of the recent election is now over, the Port Adelaide Labor Party has not adopted a policy of "rest and quiet" as yet. The members recognise that in the face of a possible early general election for both Houses they must continue to " hold fast unto one another," and still further strengthen their ranks. But on the principle that "all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy," they are arranging gatherings of a social character by way of refreshment after labor. A dinner was held at the Portland Hotel, Portland, on Wednesday, and a social and dance is to be tendered to the re-elected members of the district (Messrs. MacGillivray and Archibald) at the Port Town Hall on Friday, June 2. The dinner, a report of which appears in another column, was well attended. Operative Masons and Bricklayers.— The usual fortnightly meeting of the above society was held at the Trades Hall on Monday, May 15. There was a ...

ROYAL COMMISSIONS. VILLAGE SETTLEMENTS COMMISSION. The Renmark Commission, which was recently appointed to make enquiries and re port as to the condition and surroundings of the Renmark and Murray Settlements, have lost no time in getting to work. The whole of the members met at Parliament House on Tuesday afternoon, and Messrs. W. Culross and Peter Wood were examined. The Commission then decided to pay an imme diate visit to Renmark, and it was arranged that the party should leave Adelaide on Monday next, proceeding to M organ and there embarking in a special steamer for Renmark, which is expected to be reached on Wednesday morning. They will stay a day or two, during which they will be driven round the settlement and take evidence from the settlers. They expect to be back in town by the following Saturday. public Service commission.

CRAZY PATCHWORK. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 27 May 1899
CRAZY PATCHWORK. [By Teresa.] "Whatever should I do without The Herald ?" So I often say to myself when Saturday comes round, and I anxiously count the hours to mail time. Living in a remote part of the country where lectures and political meetings are luxuries unattainable, where even the sound of a Salvation Army Band is an unheard of treat, our Labor paper seems like a friendly messenger come to bid us be of good cheer, and to assure us that the great work of social reform is going steadily on. That the torchbearers are pressing on ward with the light, and though it often "shineth in the darkness and the dark ness comprehendeth it not," yet many an earnest soul has seen and is following though perhaps afar off. There is an im portant field for work out in the country districts. The Labor members have been so grossly misrepresented to the farmers that it is very hard to persuade these good but somewhat prejudiced folks, that the so-called "ruiners of the country" are really their ...
THE LIQUOR TRAFFIC. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 27 May 1899
THE LIQUOR TRAFFIC. [By Curlew.] In the April issue of the Young Man are published a number of letters upon the question, "Do publichouses prevent a revolution ?" The letters written are the opinions of. persons intimately acquainted with East-End life in London upon the following statement of Mr. Will Reason, M.A., who has had a long and varied experience of life in East-End of London: —"A residence of 3ver six years in the East-End has convinced me that if it were possible to close ail the publichouses in London at a stroke, we should speedily have an uncontrollable revolution. By serving as centres of social life on one hand and on the other by drugging the great mass of malcontents into apathy towards their wretched conditions, they prevent this." Ten letters are published, and the majority of the writers practically endorse Mr. Reason's view ; and whilst the conditions of publichouse life are not the same in South Australia as they are in the East-End of London, still in this c...
SOCIAL SYSTEM AND THE CHRISTIAN CONSCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 27 May 1899
SOCIAL SYSTEM AND THE CHRIS TIAN CONSCIENCE. [Br a Contributor. ] ' Few writers have touched so deep a note in the consciences of men as the Rev. C. Sheldon in his now famous books, " In His Steps" and the "Crucifixion of Phillip Strong." The tragedy of life when an attempt is made to live up to the recognised ideal of Western religion becomes sublime. An equally serious indictment of modern methods of living the Christian life has been published by Prof. G. D. Herron. "Social System and the Christian Conscience" is the title of an article in the Industrialist for July (Kansas). The professor treats his subject in a masterly manner, condemning every man, woman, and child as equally guilty in crushing humanity. The civiliza tion under which we exist condemns every individual to a life of cruelty and oppression towards the great mass. He points out that at every step, be it never so minute, man cannot help becoming the unwilling instru ment of a torture equal to any that history recor...
MONOPOLY. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 27 May 1899
MONOPOLY. We were some time ago informed by a cablegram that during a severe epidemic of influenza quinine ran short, because of the formation of a quinine "ring." The quinine had been bought up and was being "held" for higher prices. We do not know of any better example of the social system nnder which we live. Here is a "ring" formed to "make" money at the expense of human lives. What does it matter that your wife or child may be dying of in fluenza ? The "wise man" said long ago, "He that withholdeth corn the people shall curse." What shall be said of him who withholds quinine ? But this is the prin ciple of business all the world over. The "right" of a few individuals to accumulate as much gold as they can is put before the right of human beings to live. And these individuals, be it noted, are not always the individuals who do the world's work or direct the world's industry, but mere ex ploiters who manage cleverly to divert other people's labor into their own private trea sury ...
BOILER INSPECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 27 May 1899
BOILER INSPECTION. LiAst week we drew attention to the bursting of a locomotive boiler in Tasmania, by which the driver and fireman were killed. Another fearful accident has now to be recorded, this time in Victoria. A boiler used at Howard's Chaff Works, in Shepparton, whilst working at an average pressure of 50 lbs. burst, causing the death of two men. There was no suggestion of carelessness on the part of the men, and the " Eagle," in commenting upon the accident, suggests that the " coffee pot" was simply ancient and leaky, and as it was nobody's business to inspect the dangerous steam bomb the boiler -simply "popped off and wrecked the shed and killed the attendants and— there you are 3 But as likely as not such a trifling incident won't make much of an impression on the even current of the legislators' lives. And not till one of these infernal machines llies skyward and drops down with a five-ton drop on the roof of Parliament House and smashes the ceilings and squashes half-a...
NEW ZEALAND CONCILIATION BOARD. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 3 June 1899
NEW ZEALAND CONCILIATION BOARD. The Dunedin Wharf Laborers' Union are anxious to obtain an increase of pay, and in order to get it they are taking advantage of the provisions of the Goeiliation Act instead of striking under the old barbarous system. The men are asking Is. 3d. per hour for general work, Is. 6d. per hour for coal work between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., and 2s. and 2s. 6d. per hour from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m on Sundays. The employers, as a matter of course, resist the request, and the men having filed their grievances with the Con ciliation Board, the latter will doubtless enquire into the circumstances, and in all probability will secure a friendly agreement between the two parties. The Wellington Branch of the Federated Seamen's Union has also been negotiating with the local shipowners with a view to getting further grievances remedied. They have been working during the last two years under an award of the Arbitration Court, but several times lately the employers and the union's e...

ADELAIDE DEMOCRATIC CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Herald — 3 June 1899
ADELAIDE DEMOCRATIC CLUB. There was a very large attendance at the club's lecture hall last Sunday evening, the president (Mr. F. Stapleton) occupying the chair. Mr. Cornelius Proud was the lecturer, and he chose for his subject " Under Which Flag?" Mr. Proud, who on rising was cordially received, said:— We .have now reached a crisis in the history of Australia. Federation is practically carried; and next year will probably see an Australian Commonwealth, with one federal flag (grounded on the British Union Jack) floating all over this island continent, and with one federal parliament legislating on the most important questions for the whole people of Australia. Democrats must therefore be up and in all the colonies to see how far they can work together so that in federated Australia, more fully than ever before in the separate colonies, we may have government of the people, by the people, for the people. The late Mr. MePherson's words are applicable now and always : " Tell the boys...
