CLERGYMAN DEPLORES WORSHIP 8F SUCCESS "Man's Value What He Has, Not What He Is" URGES SPIRITUAL REVIVAL To-day there is a worship of success, and a determination to en- joy all things, and to have every- thing from washing machines to motor cats —on the instalment plan if by no other method," said the Bey. J. G. Jenkin in his address as incoming President of the Metho dist' Conference yesterday. No one could fail to observe all over the world a profound and contagious unrest, he said. The emphasis of life had been put, not so much on per sonality and character, as on money and the power of production. Thus a man's value became not what he was, but what he had. The day of disaster for a materialis tic civilisation was not far away. Signs were not wanting that the present age was perilously near catastrophe.

OWNERS ATTACK WHARF PREFERENCE "Serious Blow to Australia's Future Welfare" RETURN Melbourne, February 24; "Short of financial repudia- tion, it would be difficult to conceive a more serious blow at Australia's future welfare than the arbitrary enforcement by Government regulation of preference on tbe waterfront for members of the Waterside Workers' Federation." says a statement issued by the Over seas and Inter-State Ship owners' Association to-day. "Should the Senate not act swiftly to disallow it," continues the statement, "this new restriction will automatically remain law.

It a long, deplorable series of incidents on tbe Australian waterfront was possible- in the past,' when there was no legal barrier to the manning of deserted ?wharves by citizen volunteers and by growers faced with ruin, what hope...

LAST EMPRESS OF SONG "NO MELBA WILL SING FOR US AGAIN" NEW YORK, February 23. "It is startling to realise, says the "Herald-Tribune," "that Melba, great lady, great artist, was the last of those soprano empresses of song who made glorious the lyric history of the last half-century. Those who can recall the peculiarly radiant- beauty of Melba's voice from the stage in the 'nineties, possess a memory unique and treasur rble. Those who realise what is meant by perfection of coloratura singing, what is meant by a voice really ideally equipped for that perilous, most exact ing art, may imagine the best they can of ths Melba of those days. But she gave us more than that. She gave us singing touched with greatness of; style, with imperial distinction, utter ance patrician, fineness of musical taste, sovereign mastery of beauty, and the means whereby beauty may most excellently be achieved, which made such srfTifring a thing of rarity and wonder.

VIEWS AND COMMENTS STATE POLITICS VIEWS OF MR. NIEASS, M.P. To the Editor -I am, F. K. NIEASS. Parliament House. Sir—I am sure "The Advertiser" does not wish to deliberately mislead the public, and as two of your recent leaders are open to a grave reflection officials, I felt that in our mutual in terests it was advisable; to make a short statement. I have been a per manent secretary at the Trades Hall for 17 yeais, and nave never heard of a meeting of secretaries for political reasons. On an average of about once a. year a meeting has been convened to arrange for joint industrial action when a matter arises of interest to the unions generally.

In respect to the recent caucus meet ing, might I point out that your in formation is entirely wrong. We are not permitted to discuss the business of caucus, but in view of your pub lished statements, I will endeavor...
