Eight Hours Tested. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 15 March 1895

Eight Hours Tested. In a long letter to the Times of February 7 Mr. Brunuer (Brunuer, Mond, & Co.) gives the result of five years' observation of the working of au eight hours system. In November, 1SS9, eight hours was intro duced for the " process" men. They were set to work in three shifts during the twenty-four hours instead of tvyo. The increase in the number of men taking the wage reduction of 10 per cent, was expected to increase the wage cost 2lb per cent. " The actual rise in the wage-cost per ton. manu factured during 1890 was, however, only 14A per cent., and so satisfactory was this result considered that on January 1, 1891, wages were restored to their former level. During 1891 the rise above the level of 18S9 of wage-cost was 22 per cent, in place of the possible, though no longer anticipated, 35 per cent. Since theu the wage-cost per ton has steadily fallen until it is now at the level of 1SS9. The management do not regard the improvements in method and apparat...

The London County Council and its Work. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 15 March 1895

The London County Council and its Work. Mr. Sydney Webb has a very interesting article on the doings of the Londou City Council in the January number of the Contemporary Renew. Mr. Webb is a councillor and a prominent member of the progressive party. la his article lie deals largely with the work done by the Pro gressives during the six years the Council ; has been in existence. The elections which have recently been held are the third which ■ have taken place, but it is impossible to say I accurately how parties stand until more I authentic information comes to hand. According to the telegrams received from England, however, it would appear that the Progressives have a small majority. In con nection with this matter it may be interesting to know that the Loudon County Council consists of a chairman, 19 aldermen, and 13S councillors—altogether 138 members, or if the chairman be already a member of the Council as at present, 137. The term of office for aldermen is six years, and ten ...

The State Advances Bill. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 15 March 1895

The State Advances Bill. The Hon. the Treasurer (Mr. F. W. Holder) lectured before the Australian Natives' Association on Monday night on the State Advances Hill. He believed the operations of the Bill would have a very great bearing on the future weal or woe of South Australia. There had been a deal of wilful misrepresentation of its objects with the view of misleading people. The Bill included three jnain subjects. First, it dealt with the constitution of the Savings Bank as at present existing; secondly, it provided for certain advances being made to producers; and, thirdly, it enacted the issue of Government notes in lieu of the banknotes now issued by the various joint stock banks in the colony. The first pro posal was that the number of members of the board of trustees was to be reduced, and that they should be paid fees. Then the board would be given power to elect an inspector. The board was to be appointed in the same way as at present, viz., by the Government. At present v...

WARNING TO MINERS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 15 March 1895

WARNING TO MINERS. TO THE EDITOR, Sir—Oil behalf of the Morkers, and miners especially of South Australia, you might sound a note of warning, and urge upon them not to come to the Coo'gardie fields on the expectation of getting work, for they will be doomed to disappointment. There are on this field over 300 bona fide miners out of work, who are knocking out a miserable existence — dry blowing — their earnings on an average being about 3 dwt. a week, not move. Gertaialy, some have had perhaps an ounce or two, and some not earning the price of water which is still 6d. a gallon. We have one bank here, and I suppose it would be all the same if we had more, for both here and at Coolgardie they give the one price for the precious metal, £3 12s. 6d. per ounce, but the diggers can't help themselves ; it must be sold. An application is being made for a suspens:on of the labor conditions from twenty-four leases, which means from 100 to 150 men being debaired from work, the excuse being that ...

Vv. Pparee presided over a small attendance. Air. F. J. Hourigan, M.P., moved that a committee be appointed to consider the best way to invest the funds of the Society. He ex plained that his reasons for doing so were that as the funds were invested at present they were used by the capitalists to fight the workers, and he thought, if the other Unions joined them and amalgamated the funds, some good, sound co-operative busi ness could be established in the district.

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE: MARCH 15, 1895. THE EXHIBITION OF ART AND INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 15 March 1895

The Weekly Herald. ADELAIDE : MARCH 15, 1895. THE EXHIBITION OF AIIT AND INDUSTRY. Oke of the most important events in the history of the colony, at least to trades men and others similarly engaged, will be inaugurated to-night in the Jubilee Exhibition Buildings, when the Exhi bition of Art and Industry, promoted by the S.A. Chamber of Manufactures, will be formally opened by the Hon. the Treasurer. The existence in our midst of sueh a Society having for its special aim the fostering of manufactures in all branches is a source of satisfaction; especially is it so when it is noticed that the committee are fulfilling their duties right earnestly. They are not content with simply holding periodical meetings to discuss matters pertaining to manu factures, but they, mindful of the in fluence which it is in their power to exercise over the future of trade and commerce, have once more arranged to hold an Exhibition, of Art and Industry.

General News. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 15 March 1895

General News. As a result of Ministerial inspection of the labor settlements at Pitt Town and Wil berforce, N.S.W., the statements published as to the unsuitability of the soil have been amply proved. Notwithstanding this, the Minister is convinced that the men worked so industriously that they deserve a trial under better circumstances at the hands of the State, so that there is every probability of the settlements being removed to more suitable localities. Labor Member Kerr, speaking at Stone heuge, Queensland, informed his hearers that not a cent of the " Appeal Fund" would be spent in barristers' fees, as Liiley, Powers, and Drake had offered their services for nothing. Miss Edith Walker, of Bogata,f'Colum bia, has notified the municipality of that town that, being of sound mind and body, she intends to present herself as a candidate for the policeman's staff, and that, more over, she will wear a modified form of kepi, blue tunic, aud knickerbockers.

TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 15 March 1895

TO CORRESPONDENTS. We have been shown a letter recently received by a gentleman in Adelaide from Mr. Ij. Gross, Secretary of the Verein Vorwarts, Melbourne, from which we extract the following:—" I have the pleasure to acknowledge the receipt of your paper (the Herald) as well as some numbers previously, and I dare say it is well worth reading, but as to religious questions 1 do not agree with it. In my opinion they should leave that alone. Why not teach the people something higher and nobler? Is not the source of science open to us as well? Discussing religious dogmas means wasting time. The labor Press as a whole should not make con cessions to the Church. It is too danger ous a thing. The latter is not to be trusted, and if they had it all their own way the people would have to face another Spanish inquisition. See clerical party in Germany, surely a speaking example. The labor movement will attain its end without any compromise, and the red banner of social, democracy (in lame t...

People's Column. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 15 March 1895

People's Column. TO T1IE EDITOR Sir—Your paragraph in the Herald, in which the question is asked—" Why don't the shareholders of the Adelaide Co-opera tive Society insist upon their Directors buying from the English wholesale co-opera tive houses direct, instead of being a retail branch of certain Adelaide wholesale houses," has prompted me to say a few words on the subject. The Chairman (Mr. Gell), at the last half yearly meeting of shareholders, who poses as a great believer in co-operative principles, certainly did not preach them at that meeting, but pandered more to the morbid side of human nature. He told us it was not policy on the part of the Adelaide society to purchase from the English wholesale. It was stated that the goods supplied from there Mere not suited to colonial tastes. Mr. Threlfall had visited the old country, and he had brought back with liim some samples of the goods kept in stock by the wholesale society. It is quite evident that gentleman does not understan...
