Labour's Latest. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 7 January 1911

Labour's Latest. The horny handed sona of toil have evolved from their inner consciousness some highly startling proposals which, if they have their way, will grace the statute book when a Labour Government has secured a leaso in perpetuity of the Treasury benches. These proposals vary from the tolerably sane to the idiotic. Here are some samples That a daily morning newspapor' be issued from tho Government Print, ing Office, and that its political space be allotted equally; one editor to control space devoted to the Ministerial programme, another editor to conduct space inculcating the "platform" or programme of the Opposition party. That any profit obtained from the liquor traffic, when nationalised, be placed in a fund to supply working men with money at low rate of interest to provide homeB for themselves. That no officer under the Government receive more than £1200 per year, including judges. That the Government bo requested, when any future magistrates are . appointed, to nomi...

'Nothing in the Paper.' The other day in a town where lives a wall-known editor a' number of men were visiting. The editor was in the group. "How is your paper coming on asked one of them. , " Getting along nicely," was tho reply, and with that ho handed ovor a copy, which the group looked at and made fav orable comments on. Talk turned to newspapers in general, an'l one of tho number of a rather cynical turn of 'mind, said " I am very fond of reading newspapers, and I take several regularly. But lots of times I pick up the sheets, and look 'em over, and find nothing in them; Maybe I oughtn't to say, lots of times, but it is true quite frequently." Discussion over this phase csntinued for a little while. Tho editor of tho town paper was sitting back quietly and saying noth ing. He reached into a drawer of his desk, and pulled out a scrapbook and a box of cigars. "I'm going to give each of you a smoke," he said. "Now torch them right away and i get settled. I just want to read you so...
