Early Closing Demonstration. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 8 March 1895

Early Closing Demonstra tion. The second out-door demonstration or ganized by the Retail Assistants1 Union in support of early closing, held last Friday, was a complete success. Notwithstanding the somewhat early hour at which the procession was announced to start there was a splendid muster of assistants and members of trades and labor unions when it moved off from i opposite the York Hotel in Pulteney-street. ! The City Volunteer Band was in the lead, followed by the handsome banner belonging to the Retail Assistants' Union. The Holdfast Bay Band and the Sturt-street and Grote-street Fife and Drain Bands were present, and played selections on the line of march. Some thirty cyclists, carrying Chinese lanterns, also joined in the pro cession, the route being along Rundle street, King William-street, Currie-street, Morphett-street, Hindley-street, and King William-road to the Rotunda. Large crowds of people were in the streets to witness the procession as it passed. On arrival at the...

The Church and Social Reform. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 8 March 1895

The Church and Social Reform. The Rev. J. Day Thompson, the retiring president, delivered an interesting address at the opening of the Primitive Methodist Conference, from which we extract the following:—"In matters social and poli tical, too, oar Church must continue to show the saine live and practical interest as here tofore. In that respect also Primitive Methodism has always closely followed the founder. We were the first of the Churches in England to take up the temperance crusade; the leader of the movement for the formation of the Agricultural Laborers' XTnion was and is a Primitive Methodist; the leaders of the Labor Paity in the north of England have sprung from our midst; and several years ago Professor Thorold Rogers declared that the miners of England had been prepared for the exercise of the franchise, then granted to them, through the educational and spiritual influence of the Primitive Methodist Church. Let us not be deterred from pursuing the old path by any of the ...

Machinery and Production. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 8 March 1895

Machinery and Production. As an illustration of the marvellous effects of machinery on production, a correspondent of the Age gives the following :— " Cotton alone has doubled its production inside fifteen years, being in 1873 three and eight-tenths million bales, and in 18S6-S7 (with less labor, mind you !) six millions and a half bales. In the same time the trans port, both by rail and steamer, went down by one-half. The • economies introduced were equally marvellous. The cotton gin worked by one man can clean cotton equal to 1,000 working by hand; the spindle that in 1873 made 4,000 revolutions per minute now makes .10,000; the weaver of 30 yeats ago, working 14 hours per day, made some 9,000 yards of sheeting, while his brother weaver of to-day, working 10 hours, is able to turn out 30,000, thus being able by one year's work to clothe some 1,600 fully clad Chinese, or some 3,000 half- clad Indians. Again, turn to iron. England was for merly the world producer. In 1855 the out pu...

People's Column. SOCIAL REFORMATION. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 8 March 1895

People's Column. SOCIAL REFORMATION. TO THE EDTTOR. Sir—The question we have to consider is how our present system of production can be exchanged for a better one, and secure for the mass of the people their fair share of what they produce. One of the most obvious causes which lead to the sad state of affairs in which we find ourselves to-day is the almost complete dependence of the mass of labourers on capitalists and land owners for the means of earning a livelihood. The absence of work for daily wages means for them starvation, since they have no other resource whatever. They are therefore not in a condition to refuse work at whatever wages may be offered them, and the severe competition among capitalists and manu facturers for the means of employing and adding to their wealth obliges them to force down the wages of unskilled labor to the lowest point at which the laborer can live. The laborers, as a class, are absolutely dependent on the comparatively few capitalists—dependent o...

General News. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 8 March 1895

General News. The hearing of the Queensland labor members' suspension cases has been, post poned until May 13. A new locomotive, with S feet wheels, to travel 80 miles an hour, has just been turned out of the Great Northern Railway Works, England. The Argentine wlieaA surplus is estimated at 5,500,000 quarters. The A. M. P. Society has taken up £35,200 worth of the 4 per cent* debentures issued by the Brisbane Municipal Council. The Board of Tra le returns for 1894 con tain a severe reflection upon our agricul turists (says an English exchange). Look ing at the price realized by our own dairy produce, it is rather tantalizing to read that £13,470,419 was paid for foreign butter last year, and £3,786,320 for eggs during the same period. In Great Britain co-operation is booming wonderfully. Many co-operative towns have representatives in Parliament, and two great wholesale houses supply 1,515 societies with certain raw materials at first cost. The total membership is about 1,250,000. ...

Current Topics. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 8 March 1895

Current Topics. Attention is called to the fact that on account of the approaching winter season the usual lectures at the Adelaide Democratic Club will begin at 7 o'clock in future. The decision of the Municipal Association to wait on the- Commissioner of Crown Lauds for the purpose of asking him to take steps to get the Public Health Acts con solidated is one which will meet with the approval of everybody, and especially those who have the administering of them. At present they are in a very confused and unsatisfactory state. Theatre Roval.—During the week " La Pompadour, the King's Mistress," has been played to good audiences by Mrs. G. B. Lewis's Dramatic Company. This evening " Hamlet" will be staged for one night only, Mrs. Lewis taking the title role. Every care has been taken to make the representa tion thoroughly complete, and Adelaide theatre-goers will regard with much interest a new conception of the most difficnlt character, to play on the Euglish stage.

RESCUED SISTERS' HOME. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 8 March 1895

RESCUED SISTERS' HOME. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—A letter under the above heading appears in your issue of 15th Feb., in which " H. S." asks a question and answers it him or herself, viz., " Would it profit any one if she (meaning the girl he spoke to) only went into the home to be taught a trade and get an outfit?" "H. L.'s" answer is certainly not " that would be casting pearls before swine." I differ entirely from " H. Ij." To take the girl in and teach her a trade, clothing her in the meantime, would not only benefit herself, but indirectly and directly benefit society. The girl may want to be moral, and she can obtain morality without being religious. If before '* H. L." relieves our suffering sisterhood he wants them to have unlimited faith ill mythology, then he is illogical and unreasonable. I fail to see where his simile comes in. " Casting pearls before swine." Does he think to pro vide the girl with clothes and a knowledge of a trade would justify him in assuming that the girl w...

RENT AND RAILWAY MEN'S COTTAGES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 8 March 1895

RENT ANI) RAILWAY MEN'S COTTAGES. TO TUB EDITOR. Sir—Allow me to poiut out to your readers how the railway authorities reduce the wages of the navvies oa the Blyth and Gladstone Railway. All over the colony the rent of the navvie's cottages has been Is. per room, but on the above line they have raised it to Is. Cel. per room, or for three rooms 4s. 6d. per week. The wages these men receive is 6s. per day, so you will see that when rent is deducted they have only 5s. 3d. per day, aud as they are, without a single exception, men with large families, it is difficult to see how they are to live decently. I understand that the men recently petitioned the Engineer-in-Chief about the matter, and in reply were told that as the cottages cost over £70 per room, he could not accede to their request. Now, Sir, it would be interesting to know who received this £70 per room; certainly not the men who did the work. No, Sir. it was the great army of officials on that job that rail away with all the...

IMPORTING A CITY SURVEYOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 8 March 1895

IMPORTING A CITY SURVEYOR, The action of the City Corporation in deciding to import a gentleman from another colony to fill the oflice of City Surveyor has been freely commented on, and has given rise to a great amount of dissatisfaction amongst the ratepayers. We recognise that the position is one of considerable responsibility, but think it will be no easy matter for some of those who voted for Mr. Vicars, the new Surveyor, to justify their action in this matter. The duties appertaining to the office are certainly not of such a highly technical and complicated character as to lead the public to believe that it is impossible to liud a professional gentle man in South Australia who would be willing and competent enough to satis factorily discharge them at the salary offered. Y et this is practically what a majority of the City Council have told tlie applicants, the ratepayers, aiid for that matter the world at lai'ge. Surely amongst the numerous local applicants one at least possess...

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE: MARCH 8, 1895. THE PRICE LIBEL CASE. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 8 March 1895

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE : MARCH 8, 1895. THE PBICE LIBEL CASE. Tom Pbice, M.P., is once more a free mail. The first jury were unable to agree on the point as to whether he had libelled Messrs. Cave & Go. in his now historic speech to his constituents at Mitcliam, and on W ednesdaj Mr. J. H. Symon, Q.C., who was prosecuting, entered, on the full consent of the Crown, a nolle prosequi. Therefore Tom Price is once more a free man, and he will Temain so unless the somewhat vin dictive spirit in which he has hitherto been pursued finds vent in some fresh quarter. The Register has, in its usual heavy handed manner, come out into a leading article, in which the rights of capitalism are upheld in a somewhat singular manner; but one is now so accustomed to the want of logic displayed by the writers of Grenfell-street that no sur prise need be occasioned by the effusion appearing in the capitalistic organ on Thursday. What does the whole article amount to ? It is neither more nor ...

Homers: How to Breed Them. [BY WHITECHAPEL DICK.] [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 8 March 1895

Homers: How to Breed Them. [By WhITJSCIIAI'EL DlCK.] The great amouut of interest taken by a large number of our youths has induced me to offer a few notes on breeding, training, feeding, and houseing pigeons. I shall first deal with the breeding of flyers. I must therefore give the names of various breeds, which, when crossed as indicated, will pro duce good birds. There is much to be said in favo.ur of the Antwerp as a reliable homer. With the powerful body, broad shoulders, short neck and beak, full dark red eye, wings reaching often beyond the tail, very little wattle over the beak and round the eye. This is the old class of Antwerp, but I have often been shown birds heavily wattled, and classed as Antwerps. The Antwerp, for long distances, is un doubtedly the suvest bird, but not the quickest for 200 miles. Anything over that distance I prefer the blue Antwerp. The dragon and carrier come next for long dis tance, with their long, graceful neck, heavy wattled beak and eyes, long...
