WANTED, A PARTNER. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 18 January 1912
WANTED, A PARTNER. " One of the most Interesting an^ hopeful features of the Labor Confer ence, which has Just finished its de liberations at Hobart, was the deci sion to make friendly overtures to New Zealand. With the brief history of. the Commonwealth before It—its utter and callouB disregard of the in terests and sentiments of the States, without taking into consideration the oxtortionate and one-sided character of its taxation, and the reckless na* ture of its expenditure, would be suf ficient to condemn the proposition— it would be foolish to expect that the Dominion would ever be content to place itself under the yoke as a com ponent State. But, as an independent entity,, it occupies a very favorable posit'on, and can command favorable treatment. There are many matters on which New Zealand can arrive at a mutual understanding with Aus tralia, to the advantage of both of the contracting parties. It is to be hoped that something definite will come of the friendly feeling which ...
AS OTHERS SEE US. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 18 January 1912
AH OTHERS SEE US. An interesting estimate of the posf tion and trend of industrial matter? in the Commonwealth has been fur nished by Mr. Bobbins, an Americai man of business, who is visiting th principal cities. He declares tha* Australia is the very last place ir which he would venture to invee' money in any enterprise involving th employment of labor. "Why?'' hf was asked. "Because political union ism is in power, and seems to lie awake at night concocting scheme' whereby it legally squeezes the high est amount of pay out of every unfor tunate one who Is compelled to hire labor , and give the shortest number of hours and the smallest stint of work in return," is his reply. He if. ne opponent of unionism, so far as It is directed to real improvement of the efficiency and conditions of labor, but un'onism which grabs all it can get, and gives no thought to making a fair return for it, Is a horse of quite an other color. It is a policy which seems to thrive for a little, because the...
WHICH IS WHICH? [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 18 January 1912
"vniio.il ts ivhich ? A Tory large proportion of the troubles which beset the political world is traceable to the inveterate propensity of leading: politicians to mistake the visionary'for the real and actual: for facts, after all, despite Ministerial prepossessions, are stub born things. The Whole sc'ence of politics and economist, and, indeed, all true science or knowledge, whatso ever , consists in being able to dis criminate between the real and imag inary. What we don't know fre im agine, and our imaginations are usu ally grotesquely mistaken. But this is a digress'on. What I want to say is , that many acute observers trace the secret of Mr. Fisher's influence to his pre-eminent faculty of persuading himself tha the imaginevv is the real, and that the real is imaginary, and therefore, negligable. . Being able thus to persuade himself, and a man of forceful character besides—the fact that his forcefulness 'a studiously concealed makes it all the more pot ent—he is able to convin...
CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 18 January 1912
CRICKET. I! the rubber were only three gam es,' it really appears—horrid thought —that the Englishmen would win it. There was a most woeful collapse of "our boys" in their first innings in the third test match at Adelaide, and we are not yet through with specula tions as to the cause of it. Needless to 1 say, from the-po'nt of view • of. "6op^ value," cricket ranks far above statesmanship. How can it be other wise, when probably a hundred livnnp at once to the sporting columns—or pages, as it may happen—for one who, feads the leading articles? But I am off the track again. Australia was all .out for 133, whereas the M.C.C. on the same wicket, made 501 before they -were all got rid of. It Is necessary to avoid the "post hoc, ergo, propter h6c"'fallacy. That is to say, it does not follow because there arc strained relations which have caused members of the team to give a gre'at (ieal'of at tention to other matters than actual play, that, therefore, these other mat ters arc the caurfe ...
