A True Democracy. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 1 March 1895

A True Democracy. Switzerland presents all the features of a true democracy. .Tt has three elective councils—the State Council (44 members), the National Council (147), and the Execu tive Council (7), all of which are responsible solely to the people. Every citizen on his twenty-first birthday is entitled to vote, and one deputy is returned to every 20,000. National legislation is subject to the diiect vote of the people by means of the popular initiative, and the referendum, an appeal to the voice of the nation, which is decisive and final. In local government, too, the people exercise their power direct, without the intervention of Parliamentary machi nery, the system being essentially based on the absolute sovereignty of the voice of the community. The magistrates, honorary or paid, are the servants of the citizens, and each canton has its own budget of revenue and expenditure. Military matters are as efficiently controlled by the national voice. No standing army is kept, but eve...

Labor Notes. A further reduction of wages has been accepted by the West Wallseud miners, and I it is reported that a like reduction is to be made at the Seahani mines. The Victorian Cabinet lias given notice that all Civil servants entitled to pensions will be permitted to retire if they feel dis posed to.

The mechanics are only receiving 36s. per week, yet it is proposed to reduce this amount by *25 per cent.

Machinery under Monopoly. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 1 March 1895

Machinery under Monopoly. [Br T. E. Will, M.A., in The Arena.] That the wide introduction of labor saving machinery, with the attendant possi bilities of leisure for the multitude, should be a blessing to society all must admit; but that, as steam and electricity are steadily supplanting the horse, so, from the days of Ludd to the present moment, the machine is supplanting the laborer, none can deny. Manifestly, if the machine performs the work the man will not be called upon to labor except, in relatively a few cases, as a machine-tender. The English economists, in their endeavour to show that whatever was was right, or soon would be, and to stop the breaking of the looms, argued that the machine, while displacing laborers at one point, made places for them elsewhere. The new places have, however, as yet failed to appear in sufficient numbers to relieve, appreciably, the evil of non-employment. A slight effort of the imagination should make clear to the thinking mind the in evitabl...

Political and Social. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 1 March 1895

Political and Social, Maori Women's Parliament. — The Maori Women's Parliament, which has been sitting at Tehauke, has concluded its session. In bringing the meeting to a close the chair women said:—" We find that after many years the men's endeavours to carry out our interests have failed, and therefore we women have formed ourselves into a parlia ment or committee, and now we are going to do what we can. Our lands are slipping away from us every day iuto the hands of the Government, and thereforo we must protect ourselves. Should we not succeed, we will find ourselves like shags on a sand bank, spreading our wings to the wind." The Right Hon. Sir John Gorst lias been living for six weeks at Toynbee Hall to Study the Loudon East-End slums, and has come to the conclusion that " nearly all the thoughtful people in the East-End arc Socialists rather of the Fabian type. Many of those call themselves anarchists, but I very soon discovered that by that term they did not uieau the men who...

Kanaka Labor Traffic. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 1 March 1895

Kanaka Labor Traffic. Ill a recent issue of the Queensland Worker there appears an interesting inter view between a representative of that journal and the Rev. W. Gray on the Queensland kanaka labor traffic. Mr. Gray, who is well-known to a number of South Australians, was for twelve years a mis sionary in. Tauua, New Hebrides. He has been an eye-witness of the manner in which the recruiting traffic is carried on, and is now visiting Queensland for the purpose of seeing for himself the treatment they receive at the liauds of the sugar-planters in the northern colony. He says :—" It is the opinion of some members of Parliament, I find, that planters know that the kanaka labor traffic is a broken reed to lean upon. The central sugar mills will be the death of the kanaka labor traffic by leading to the cultivation of cane by whites. People in Brisbane, as a rule, have no more idea of what is going on north of the Mary than people in South Australia have. The fol lowing are figures from...

Mr. H. H Champion. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 1 March 1895

Mr. H. H Champion. The following letters have been received by Mr. F. S. Austey, assistant-secretary of the United Labor and Liberal Party of Victoria, and handed to us for publica tion :— " The Labor Leader, 53, Fleet-street, London, December 17, 1894. Mr. Frank G. Austey, Victorian Labor Party, Mel bourne. Dear Sir—Your letter of 30th October duly received. I have asked W. H. Lee, Secretary of the S.D.F., to reply thereto in so far as your enquiries affect that body. Mr. H. H. Champion was never a member of the I.L.P., the Council of which, however, last year thought it was wise to pass a resolution declaring that he was not a member, lest they should be held responsible for what he might say or do. I might say, personally and unofficially, that I know of nothing in Mr. Champion's career which has led me to suspect him of being a friend to the capitalists. I remain, yours faithfully, J. Keir Hardie." " Social Democratic Federation. Central Office, 337 Strand, London, W.C. Decem be...

The Bootmaking Trade. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 1 March 1895

The Bootmaking Trade. Within the last few years the public have so become accustomed to hear of the dis placement hi various industries of large bodies of men by machinery that it -w ill probably not come very much as a surprise to know that the bootmaking trade in Ade laide is in a very unsatisfactory condition so far as the employes are concerned because of the recent improvements which have been introduced into several of the factories. It is bad enough when men are not required, and are discharged singly, as it were, by their employers, but when they are sent away in batches, with no prospect of ever again being able to find employment at their trade, the outlook becomes serious for the nation, as well as for the individual. These displaced men have got to live, and so have their wives and children. Brought up to a particular trade, and compelled to work at a high rate of speed in order to be able to earn sufficient to live upon, they are as a rule totally unfitted for laborious...

The Day Breaking. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 1 March 1895

The Day Breaking. The Rev. Prebendary Eyton, of London, recently preached on the text, " The glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together" (Isaiah xl. 5). He said there had been two revelations of Christ. There was the revelation of the New Testament, of which we were thinking just now, of the Messiah so long expected, of the Son of God that could be seen and handled, in whom the glory of the Lord was revealed. But all flesh did not see him, but only those who had eyes to see and ears to hear. That revelation was too near to men to be comprehended in any but its broadest outlines. Faith saw through a glass darkly, but she saw enough to hand it down to us. The other revelation of Christ takes in the first: the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and the gradual realisation of this was slowly and painfully, after many mistakes and disappointments, emerging out of many misconceptions of ages. Those who grasped that progressive realisation could see unmo...

Return of Mr. John Burns, M.R Oil Saturday evening Mr. Jolm Bums, M.P., arrived from America by the Cunard steamer Etruria, which had made a record passage. A Central News correspondent at Liverpool says the member for Battersea was ill excellent health, and mentions a closing incident of his voyage. On the tender Mr. Burns observed a little girl ot ten years crying; she had lost her ticket, which would have carried her to her desti nation, Stoke Newington. " All right," said Mr. Burns, " we must see about this." At that moment a fellow-passenger, stated to be an American millionaire, walked up, and to this gentleman Mr. Burns said— " That little girl has lost her train ticket; it cost 16s. JOd. I'll go half if you'll go the other." The millionaire hesitated an instant, and then, with a gurgle of heroic generosity, replied, " I'll do it," and he handed Mr. Burns Ss. 5d. The money was given to the child, a piece of paper bearing an appro priate legend being pinned upon the little tra...
