HOMING [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 29 March 1895

HOMT\T(i TBy WHITKOlIAi'lO, DiOlv.l The future of a youngster depsnds very much upon the first and secon-l toss. If you have a bu\l giveu to settle I M'oultl advise you to give it a good shaking before tcs >iupr, or toss it where it cannot settle, away from buildings. The early morning is the best time for training birds; there are not many flights out to arrest the progress of your birds. My practice has been when tossing a pigeon t-> keep its head iu the opposite direction from home. Nine birds out of ten will turn round when tossed, thus often going straight for home without rounding. To train properly you should feed your birds regularly aud at a certain time, say S o'clock, which in some cases would give you au opportunity of sendings birds away before feeding time a ten-mile journey. They will come much quicker as a rule because they are huugry, and you would be home to catch them in if there be sufficient daylight after your return from busiuess; lettheinout again say h...

The Agricultural Laborer. [PERCY DEARMAN IN "THE NEW PARTY."] [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 29 March 1895

The Agricultural Laborer. [Percv Dearman in- "The New Party."] But after all it is mainly by its agricul tural conditions that this budding Christian democracy must be judged. For the agri cultural laborer represented the masses in days when only one-tenth of the population lived in tlie towns. From the establishment of Christianity up to the end of the "Golden Age" of labor in the fifteenth century, we find conditions which, brought up to date, would almost satisfy the aspirations of Edward Carpenter, or " Nunquam." In the small space at my disposal I caii only glance at these conditions, but a hasty treatment will be intelligible in these days when even politicians understand that the Parish Councils Bill is nothing but the taking up o,f the threads of the Christian democracy where they were broken off by modern "progress." At once we are confronted with "joint labor," a collectivist, though primitive method of agriculture : " all agri culture," says Mr. Gibbins, "was carried on c...

The Question of the Age. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 29 March 1895

The Question of the Age- j Speaking to a Press representative in Melbourne, Sir H. J. Wrixon, who is a Conservative in politics, and lias just re turned to Australia from an extended tour in Europe and America, declares that socialism is the question, not only of the day, bat of the age. "I found' this question of socialism uppermost in men's minds in every country I have visited," he said. "It is, depend upon it, the root question of everything." Asked i£ he had met any of the socialist leaders, he said —" Yes, I have cultivated their acquaintance. Ia England I met John Burns, Torn Mann, and Sydney Webb, of the Fabian Society. Mr. Webb I found to be a most charming man, a diligent collector of facts, and, above all, most accurate. He and his wife have written a ' History of Trades Unionism,' which I have heard spoken of as an admirable book. The Fabian Society, as one may say, finds ! the brains of the socialist movement in !

Democratic Societies. Tiie Adelaide Democratic Ch:b.—On Suuday evening Mr. W. G. Coombs occupied the platform of the Adelaide Democratic Club, aud lectured ou "The Early-Closing Movement." There was a good attendance, aud tbe President (Hon. G. McGregor, M.L.C.) presided. Mr. Coombs said that the Early-Closing Association had been in existence foi the past twenty years or more, but that no trade organisation had had such a long and weary struggle, nor had so many difficulties been thrown in their path as the one whose business it was to endeavor to secure reasonable hours of labor for shop assistants. They had had to fight the selfishness and indifference of the great mass of the public, who, if they would only con sider the injustice they were doing to others less favored than themselves by their per sistent want of thought, would soon have the hearts of the shop assistants rejoicing in shorter hours. They had always considered that a uniform sycteui of early-closing on Saturdays w...

VILLAGE SETTLEMENTS, &c. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 29 March 1895

VILLAGE SETTLEMENTS, &c. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—Fifteen thousand pounds at 5 per cent, interest well secured 011 the property is a good sound investment, but when con sidered with the fact that so many persons will be permanently settled on the land it is a reproductive investment in a far greater measure than the mere interest lepresents. The success of these settlements \vilL prove that men who were homeless and workless will have made homes for themselves and paid the country 5 per cent, for the oppor- ; tunity of so doing, and the settlers will be among the most independent of our com munity. Talk about labor asserting itself. I am awaiting the time when tlieir success will be- beyond the reach of sneers or cavil as it most assuredly will be; for then, I take it, strikes wiil be unnecessary. All we need do fs to go in for our own representa tives, and numerically we are strong enough to put in some more Labor members, and get an expansion of this policy, and we shall then co...

This Artificial Age. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 29 March 1895

This Artificial Age. Did you ever notice from reading news papers that there is never a cab at a big funeral? The vehicles are always "carri ages." "Private carriages, the carriage of the Stipendiary Magistrates, aud private carriages," for instance, wind up the order of procession in Sydney last Sunday. Yet, as a matter of fact, nearly all these "carriages" were cabs; even Sir George Dibbs went by cab. And a coffin is no longer a coffin, but a "casket," or an "envelope," or a "funeral shell." Thus {from the Herald):—" Some ten members of the undertaker's staff then entered the death chamber, aud carefully raised and bore out the casket to the hearse, which had been drawn into the portico." " Death chamber," you will observe ; as a matter of dry fact it^was the ball room, into which the body had been carried after death. " Portico" also; at Government House they call it the povch. It was the " undertaker's staff' that did these things— " bore" out the coffin, &c. A man no lo...

Trade Unionism at Windsor Castle. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 29 March 1895

I Trade Unionism at Windsor Castle. It will be news to many people (says Reynold's Newspaper) to know that the question of Trades Union rates of wages, which has been fought out successfully on the County Council, in Parliament, anil elsewhere, has also scored a victory even in the royal palace anil its departments at Windsor. Lord Carrington, L.C.C., who is also Lord Chamberlain, has ordered a return of the wages paid and conditions of work to be made to him. That return has now been prepared, and it is found they work proper hours, are paid Trade Union rates of wages, are paid when away sick, and receive pensions when they are what Lord Canriug ton described as " worked ov^t.11 Challenged on the matter the other day, Lord Carring ton made a reply which was received with hearty applause. " It was said," remarked I his lordship, " that a certain contract was giypn tQ a man who did not pay the Union rates. All I can say is that if the name is given me I will make enquiries, and if I ...
