GOVERNMENT BY REPRESENTATION. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 7 June 1912

Government by Representation. ! By V.' Ducret, Grade VIII. Early in English History, when the freemen of the village met to settle their affairs, they elected four men to go to the Hundred Moot. These men had to represent that village at the Hundred Moot and act as it. To-day men .are elected to repre sent each county, and each man acts for his own county. This system of government is used all over Austra lia, and is known as' government by representation. It was Simon de Monfort that first showed English people this sys tem of government, bfat then it was only for a short time. It was not until thirty years afterwards that it was again used, and then it was not in a. very good manner, bat it was altered time after time until it became what it is now.
