FAILURE OF THE CUMULATIVE VOTE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 1 March 1895
FAILURE OF THE CUMULATIVE VOTE. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—i note in your last issue a paragraph from the January JRevmo of Reviews, treat ing of the recent School Board elections, iu which it is stated that the advocates of pro portional representation will find it will take many elaborate essays to remove the prejudice created in the public mind by the results of the cumulative vote. Neither the labor, nor the Socialist, nor the Catholic party have succeeded in obtaining a repre sentative. No elaborate essay is needed ; only the simple statement that the method iu use for these elections is not proportional representation, and that on account of its uncertainty aud waste, it has been protested against ever since it was brought forward as a means to secure some representation of minorities on these boards. The adoption of the cumulative vote in the State of Illinois for three-member districts has retarded the progress of the true principles of representa tion in America for twenty years, a...
CO-OPERATIVE CONSUMPTION—THE INITIAL STEP TO REFORM. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 1 March 1895
CO-OPERATIVE CONSUMPTION—THE INITIAL STEP TO REFORM. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—It costs sometimes a lot of time and trouble and involves great expense to organise a small body of workers for the means of co-operating to produce or dis tribute certain lines of produce, and then at last when they have started they are at the mercy of tlie big capitalists, who can under sell them at every turn and manufacture goods and raise produce of a better quality. Now, the working classes have got very little money to spend, and none to waste in experimenting, but if they would once co-operate to spend what little they have got with only those companies or individuals that are on the side of labor, and that advertise in the labor newspapers, how much could be done to hasten on reform 2 It "is not so much the way in which we co-operate to make money as the way in ■which ice could co-aporaXe to spend it that we can make headway. Let the workers once begin to co-operate to spend their wages amongst the fri...

Dave Hargrave's Mission. CHAPTER VI. (continued). [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 1 March 1895
Dave Hargrave's Mission. CHAPTER VI. (continued). " Then he is out of his time?" interrupted Dave. " No, listen my boy; no such luck. Wait and you'll hear. Do you think Frank could stop between four walls ? No, and I knew It and trembled, for he was a terrible lad in his anger, although as generous and kind hearted as you could find otherwise. But I knew the worst had not come. He had not been in gaol twelve months before he escaped, and was away six months, during which time you may be sure his poor unhappy old father helped him all he could. However, the boy was surprised and retaken, and after going up before one of the hardest judges that was ever in those parts—Black Bendy they called him—he found he had another five years tacked on to his first sentence. His poor mother fainted in the court, and died six weeks after of a broken heart. I gave up almost myself, and liad it not been for my good girl, Jessie, I should never have tried to get over it. I sold everything out, and by ...
People's Column. OUR HERALD. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 1 March 1895
People's Column. OUR HERALD. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—I am sorry there has been some disagreeableness concerning the Herald. I am sure we are well pleased with it, and I think it is the very paper the workers need to show them their true position. But there are such a number, Mr. Editor, that I know who do not take the Herald. I wish they could see their folly, and that they would subscribe their penny a week for the only paper that will fight their cause. Sir, I read in the paper that the Early-Closing Asso ciation are going to make a house-to-house canvas. I would suggest that they ask such householders do they support the Herald. By doing this it might be the means of some more taking it, which I am sure they will never regret. Sir, I hope when the time comes for the women to use their vote they will do so to the best of their ability. I think if the workers were all to pull together they would soon improve their position. I am, &€., A BUSY HOUSEWIFE.

Democratic Societies. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 8 March 1895
Democratic Societies. Democratic Cum.—On Sunday night a lecture was given by Mr. E. L. Batclielor, M.P., on the subject of "The Labor Party and its Progress." He said that he had belouged to what had been described as the " inner circle" of the party since its incep tion, and was therefore qualified to speak 011 the subject from actual knowledge. He described the first meeting of the Executives of the various Labor organisations and Democratic Societies, who met at the invita tion of the Trades and Labor Council in 1890 to place direct representatives of labor in Parliament. The selection of candidates, the hustings, campaigns, and the victories and defeats of the party up to 1894 were referred to briefly, the total resiIts of four years' work being a gain of 8 seats in the House of Assembly and 6 in the Legislative Council. During the same time 3 Labor candidates had been defeated, one of whom had since been elected. Out of 16 candidates put forward by the .party 14 occupied seats ...

The New Social Era. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 8 March 1895
The New Social Era. The meeting in the Albert Hall last Saturday evening to hear " addresses for the times by Methodist preachers," was a grand success, as indeed have all previous meetings of a similar character. The attendance was large, and the enthusiasm great, in striking contrast to the meeting of the National Ass. held iu the Town Hall the previous evening. The Rev. G. E. Rowc presided, and said that as preachers it was their duty not to overlook the social problems which affected the weal or woe of humauity. The object of the meeting was to emphasise the necessity for Christian people to consider, and by God's grace, solve the social pro blems. He congratulated the people of South Australia on the passing of the Adult Suffrage Act. The Rev. W. A. Potts spoke on " The Preacher's Relation to Social Problems," and said that he could not be faithful to his text work the Bible without studying social pro blems. Because some thought they should leave them alone on account of their...
The National Defence League Meeting. [COMMUNICATED.] [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 8 March 1895
The National Defence League Meeting. [Communicated. ] It is often asked how it is that tile National Defence League always gets such lengthy reports in the columns of our two dailies. The public generally suppose it is because the meetings of the League are great events, and that the lengthy reports have nothing to do whatever with the fact that the League is a fat man's institution, representing wealth, although it may not possess very much hard cash. Never having been present at any of the League's meet ings, I felt a strong desire to attend one, and accordingly availed myself of the oppor tunity which presented itself last Friday evening. The meeting, of course, was held in the Town Hall, and that in itself was intended to give " tone" to the event. On entering the hall I found there were not quite 200 people present, and although I counted them again two or three times during the evening, the greatest number I could muster was. 210, certainly not a very large number considering ...
Is there a Market for Raisins? [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 8 March 1895
Is there a Market for Raisins ? Ia a recent issue of the MUdura Irri galioimt an interesting interview appears between a representative of that paper and Mr. C. B. Luffman, who was at one time connected with Dookie Agricultural College, Victoria. Having spent three years in the raisin and other dried fruit regions of Southern Europe, Mr. Luffman recently retained to \ ictoria, where he was at once secured by the Minister of Agriculture to proceed to Mildura to give all information possible to the fruitgrowers there. In reply to the question— " Do you think that the raisin business is overdone ?" Mr. Luffman smiled, and suavely replied, " Not whilst the Malaga growers are making at least £40 per acre above tlie cost of pro duction. Produce a really first-class mus catel, and you will find a large demand for it at a high price. There is plenty of room at the top, and there always will be. Having seen the Malaga methods, I have returned with the conviction that there is a fine field in...

"Aims of the Labor Party." [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 8 March 1895
"Aims of the Labor Party." Mr. W. O. Archibald, M.P., addressed a meeting of the Australian Natives' Associa tion at the Cafe de Paris Rooms, Bundle street, on Monday evening, February 25, the subject of bis address being " The Aims of the Labor Party," Councillor M. F. Cavanagh qccupied the chair, and there was a good attendance. Mr. Archibald, who met with a good reception, said that the principles of the Labor Party were clearly defined, and so long as they were faithfully carried out would work in the best interests of the colony, South Australia's policy in the past had been largely one of studying private interests instead of public interests, evidence of which could be seen in the construction of many of our ports and railways. The result of all this was that the burden of past mismanagement fell on the shoulders of the working classes, who desired to get more direct representation in the Parliament. It was not a fact, as had been asserted, that they did not believe in anyone...
English Labor Notes. [From the Labor Gazette for January.] [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 8 March 1895
English Labor Notes. [From the I/dbor (Jazettc, for January.] The slight upward movement in the labor market during November did rot receive any material cheek, during December. .Sixty-seven Trade Unions, with an aggre= gate membership of 367,796, sent in returns, showing that at the close of the year 2S,4S4, or 77 per cent., were unemployed. During the month over 5,500 persons were aftected by reductions in wages. On tlie other hand, the increases reported include S00 linen workers at Perth and p50 plumbers at Edin burgh and Leith. Over 330 workpeople had their hours of labor reduced, in most cases without loss of pay. Forty-three disputes were reported during the month, none being of very great magni tude. Four new co-operative associations of consumers, and one association of producers were registered during the mouth, the asso ciation of producers being the outcome of a stilike of Sheffield shearmakers. During 1894 the number of vessels launched in the United Kingdom was 645, of...
New Australian Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 8 March 1895
New Australian Notes. Mr. Gilbert S. Casey has issued a report to members of the New Australia Associa tion, which contains the following :—" The Association's property is still in bondage, and tbe members are anxiously enquiring why, how, and when ? They want to know why it is so jealously guarded, how they are going to get possession of it, and when those who retain it intend doing anything with it ? Certainly, I am a bit curious myself, but that may be only mere inquisitiveness on my pai-t—in fact, one of the ' guardian angels' told me that 1 had no more claim to the information than anyone else; he might have said that it was personal property, and it would have been clear what he meant. It will be remembered that it was registered in the name of W. W. Head, and the Association was protected (?) by a mortgage of £2,500 which W. Lane held over it. To still further protect (?) the Association, tbe release of W. Lane's mortgage was held by Peter M'Naught, and everything seemed pret...
