The Independent "ONWARD AND UPWARD." FOOTSCRAY, SATURDAY, APRIL 21, 1883. Noxious Trades. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 21 April 1883

" ONWARD AND UPWARD." FoorscRav, S.\TURu.y, APRIC 21, 1S83. Noxious Trades. TILE ratepaycrs are called upon to-day to exercise their prerogative and to de cide upon a question of very, grave im portance to the future of the Borough. Virtually, the matter at issue may be put thus-"-Shall noxious trades be al lowed to exist in the Borough, or shall they be made so that they shall be no more noxious than other trades?" There is no doubt that good cause for com plaint has existed in the past, and it is equally certain that it cannot be allowed to continue in.the future; but at the same time there are a very large propor tion of the community against the harsh method of procedure involved in crim inal actions being entered into, which, even if successful, would certainly drive away from our midst a large expenditure in wages, and as a necessary sequence the wage-carners would follow, to the manifest depreciation of property. The proprietors of the works have signified their willingness t...

Eight Hours' Day. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 21 April 1883

Eight Hours' Day. Tiss day the working-classes celebrate the anniversary of one of the best adjuncts' of progress that has ever occurred in the history of labour, the. boon that has made the position of a workman in Victoria the envy of the brotherhood throughout the world. Eight hours' work, eight hours' study and. recreation, and eight hours' rest is the motto of the movement. and it is not to be wondered at, if under these genial :skies, with good wages and plentiful'' employment our working classes should .stand high in the social scale, and develope mental and moral culture to a- degree unknown a few years ago amongst the hard-worked, and badly-paid artisais of the old land. Of course there is'a section of Workmen even -here-.. whose: 'thoughts rise no higher than ,. the creed" of' the most debased of the class, and wihose lives are summed 'ip in working, eating and drinkingi and :leeping-; but to the great mass, the extra time at their disposal is made, a' meians of elevating ...

"Well, sir, how dovoti do this morning?" asked I)r. Stevenison,'in a jocular way, approaching his bed. "ltow do I do?" replicd the hypochondraic faintly; "a:pretty question to ask a dead man." " Dead !" rec plied the doctor. "Yes s:r, dead, quite dead.' I died last night about twelve o'clock."
