Even a street-cleaner is of more use to his fellow men than a millionaire. ? ? The characteristic feature of the French municipal elections, eays Le Soleil, is the official entry of the Labour party into politics. - The British glass workers are falling into line in the march for a statutory eight hour working day. Not much to go for certainly, but it snows they are but of the old rut.

BYSTANDER'S NOTEBOOK [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 16 July 1892

BYSTANDER'S NOTEBOOK] ? ♦ ? The object of the Elections Bill is plain enough to anybody. But if still more plainness is required proof OP it is fortunately given patriotic trickery, by a ' private and ? , confidentia!''Tnrcuiar of tV Patriotic League given in another column of this issue. Its simple and guile less language is most noticeable in two paragraphs, viz: _ . 7. Nearly 5000 names which were wrongly on k the metropolitan electoral rolls hare been removed, and nearly 2000 have been placed on those rolls. 8. There is no room fordoubt that at least 5000 names yet require to be removed ; ? and action iu thai directiuii must be taken at once or those names will remain on the rolls. This being interpreted means that if 6000 more Labour voters can be got off the metropolitan rolls and kept off, the Govern ment candidates will go through safely at the next election. The Patriotic League will get voters off the roll and, that done, the new Elections Bill is warranted to keep most of...
