The afternoon was all that could be wished. The sun shone brightly, the birds sang melodiously, whilst the spring flowers along the old country road Ave re alike pleasant and refreshing. Truly everything looked beautiful—the hedge rows blossoming with May and loading the air with sweet ness, whilst the nuts hanging in clusters seemed to tempt the passers-by to help themselves. And Dave enjoyed it all amazingly, for it was just a time when the whole of the past few days came vividly before his mind and the dim future opened like a visionary picture for him to take transitory glances at. Ope saw bow he was lost in reverie, and let him think on, whilst watching the different shades that passed o...

RENT AND RAILWAY MEN'S COTTAGES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 15 March 1895

RENT AND RAILWAY MEN'S COTTAGES. TO THE EDITOR. Sir — lour correspondent "'In the Ivuow," writing iii your last issue under the above heading points out one of the many ways ill which railway men's wages are reduced systematically, for which he deserves I the thanks of the public. But he is apparently only slightly "in the know." For the information of your many readers and the public generally I would crave space to show how this question of rent pans out when sifted to the bottom. Some years ago an Act of Parliament was passed providing that all railway servants entering and occupying Government houses after a certain date should pay rent. This, of course, offered an opportunity always eagerly sought by the supervising officers to have a cut at tlieir pcorer paid subordinates. The Azt (as it was understood by the public) of course meant to apply all round, but did it do so ? Certainly uot! This is the way, Sir, the thing has been done. To the navvies and poorer paid servants, it i...

C. BUTCHER. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 15 March 1895

C. BUTCHER. TO THE EMTOH. Sir—You say in answer " To Correspon dents" " Your articles too long. Will look over M.S.; if suitable apply the pruning knife." Lay aside your pruning knife, Mr. Editor, I prune my own compositions, and it is for you to take or leave them, accord ing as your discretion advises you. When I first began writing to the Wcskly Herald 1 felt there was something lacking, and I thought I might render a little assistance by jotting down in my leisure moments light compositions, as would tend to rouse that lethargic spirit that seems to pervade and influence the actions of the well-fed, well clothed, well-housed socialistic Democrats of the day, and instil into them a spirit of emulation to a like procedure by teaching them that there is a higher mission iu life th 'ii self. It matters not whether they are editors of labor papers, labor M's. P., or public lecturers, as W. O. Archibald, they can all do something according to tfceir intelligences to solve the problem ...

Dave Hargrave's Mission. CHAPTER VI. (continued). [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 15 March 1895

Dave Hargrave's Mission [By Harry J. White.]     CHAPTER VI. (continued). "The old mare and trap, is it ? Well, he can't have it, for I just promised old widow Flint to shift her furniture this afternoon," said the old privileged servant. " Can't have it ? Well, I don't know, but he's made up hs mind to go." "Oh, I daresay he has. Well, here's the   master himself," said the old man. "Hullo, Tom, what's the matter now?" called out Ope. " Why, you see, sir, I was just going to take the old mare out to shift Mrs. Flint's furniture," auswered the old ostler. " Well, Tom, old Polly is goiug to have the honor of giving her master an airing this afternoon; so you cau just tell the daughter to pay Bob Lynch, the carrier, to shift the poor old soul." Dave was amused to see the expression on the old ostler's face at this information, and as soon as Ope had turned his back he began audibly to express his disapproval.

Mildura To-day. [BY ONE WHO KNOWS IT, IN THE "BARRIER MINER."] [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 22 March 1895

Mildura To-day. [By One Who Knows it, in the " Barrier Miner."] The settlers some three years ago became greatly dissatisfied at the supply of water for irrigation, ami formed an Irrigation Company, the affairs of %vliich have become so taugled ap witli those of Chaffey Bros, and Go. that it is hard to make outsiders understand the troubles now rampant in Mildura. The chief matter is that settlers cannot get water when they want it; they have to pay an increased rate for it^ with promise of still greater cost. Ihe Chaffeys have been seeking to be relieved of some of the conditions imposed by Parliament, and the whole situation is very confused and troubled. There is very little money on the settlement, and only a few weeks ago the men engaged at the pumping station refused to work any more till they got their wages, at least, part iu cash, and not in " orders." The town and settlement was for a short time threatened with a water famine. Think of that, in the "great irrigation colony...

Land and Property. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 22 March 1895

Land and Property. Addressing his constituents at -Bridgeton, Glasgow, on Januai-y 16, Sir George Tre velyan said :—" In tlie old days land was considered like no other sort of property. The people have now begun to look upon it very much in the light of a public trust. The possession of many thousands of acres »lakes a man almost a despot over the pro perty which belongs to him, and the possesr sioii of a very few acres, if they are in the right place, enable a man to levy very serious contributions over the community iu which he lives. Now people are beginning to ask more serious questions. They ask why a man who has a slip of land near a colliery should be able to charge an extrava gant wayleave before the coals can pass across it. They ask why a man who has land in an industrial centre should be allqwed to get off without paying no more rates than the laud does for its agricultural value —he who is watching his time when he could sell it for the enormous sum which it commands on...

People's Column. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 22 March 1895

People's Column. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—Being now a free woman, I want to understand about this " registration," and when the next election is due. I do hope that our womenfolk will at that time put in an appearance in good numbers ; I also hope that no unpleasantness will arise in families on account of difference of political opinions, and so give the enemy occasion to blas pheme. Thanks to secret voting none of us need let our left hand know what our right hand is doing. What I want is to take away the chance from the other side of saying that the vote iu our hands is like the " fifth wheel of a coach"—neither use nor ornament. When election time comes I may not be able to attend the meetings, but I shall carefully read the reports of the candi dates' political views, and take notes of any promises made or pledges given. Perhaps I shall also save up the newspapers for future reference, so that if any member goes back on his word he can be brought to book chapter and verse. Let intend...

True and False Unionism. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 22 March 1895

True and False Unionism. Mr. W. G. Speuce, iu the N.S. XV. Worker, says:—" Unionism means a voluntary agree ment that certain things shall be done which in themselves are for the good of all, conse quently it is for the benefit of all that Unionism is maintained. It is plain that the worker suffers when wages go down, hence his business to keep wages up. There are only about 100,000,000 sheep iu Aus tralia, and it takes a certain amount of labor to take the wool off. A reduction in wages would not employ one single individual more iu the wool industry, but would cause loss of employment iu other occupations, and a consequent increase in the number of persons competing for the work. At least £200,000 per year increased wage has been secured to ! the shearer by his Unionism, and that amount has been diverted from foreign shareholders' pockets and those of local usurers into those of the busiuess people of Australian community. What is really wanted is that the whole of the profits fro...

Strictly Business. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 22 March 1895

Strictly Business. At the weir of the Magpie Creek Reser voir some alterations are going on to prevent the siiting-up of the inlet in flood time. The quality of the concrete work made with colonial cement and broken metal (stone), with which the weir is constructed, and which has all the appearance and quality of solid rock, is surprising. Some of "it has to be removed, and the quality is thus shown. It would be worth the while of detractors of the CQlonial cement, as also its friends, to visit this work.

The Importation of Prison Made Goods. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 22 March 1895

The Importation of Prison Made Goods. Calouel Howard Vincent, M.P., writing to the Time.s of January 17, calls attention to the gross abuses that are indulged in under the protection of the Merchandise Marks Act, as well as the unfair competition with British trade through the importation of goods manufactured by convict labor in foreign prisous. During the last session of Parliament the gallant Colonel endeavored to force this subject on the attention of Her Majesty's Ministers, with the view of taking steps to adopt the measures in operation in the United States, Canada, and elsewhere. Mr. Mundella, then President of the Board of Trade, refused at that moment to con sider such a suggestion. The Foreign Office was, however, impressed with the impor tance of the subject, with the result that it directed enquiries to be made by Her Majesty's Diplomatic Officers. The follow ing is from a report furnished by Mr. Reginald Tower, Second Secretary to Her Majesty's Embassy at Berlin : —" T...
