He would endeavor to do his best to get the Labor Party to make it a party matter, and to try and induce other members of that party to visit the Territory and be enlight ened.

Published Dally. TUESDAY, JANUARY 28'i 101D. SANE UNiONlSM. There is no more justification for the threatened A.W.U. strike at tiie Smelters than there is for the refusal of the few non-unionists employed at tiie works to combine with their I fellow workers. The man who doubls I the benelits of sane unionism is a .back number; and the-onc who stands apart yet shares the fruits of union endeavor [ lays himself open to a still less plea sant classification. There may be men who remain non-unionists because they do not like union methods. No one will deny that unions at times do foolish and indefensible things. So do employers.- The same thing can be said of almost every organisation of human bejngs. In no instance could an attitude of aloofness be justified. The workman who does cot agree with union* methods should not stand apart; he should join and use his in fluence to make his comrades wise. Unionism is an accepted fact, among employers as well as among employed; in business,. in ...

Fire is Burra District MANY FARMS1 DESTROYED. ESTIMATED^ £30,000. A grass fire whiclx- did an immense amount of damage in its course of more than 20; miles, started on Friday • morning on Mr.* James O'Dea's pro perty. at Booborowie. It- was aided on its course by the hot wind, which pre vailed when the wheat stacks at Solo ; montown, caught fire. The llames ! pursued' a somewhat erratics-course, ijust skimming some properties, and i wiping others almost out of existence* ; 1 Mr. O'Dea, for instance, on whose property the lire is said to have ori ginated, had only a small stack of hay destroyed, and not much damage was odne to Mr. Pryde's land adjoining. But when the fire reached Mr. J. Par ker's Coralinga estate, it found "fuel, in the abundance of feed, about three feet high. ' Here the fire fighters em ployed their forces in vain. The flames travelled with such velocity that it was found impossible to burn back. On an adjacent property, the house wras saved, with a harvester, a. t...
