DID THE OPPOSITION RESIST EXTRAVAGANCE ? YES, BUT THEY WERE "GAGGED !" [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 22 July 1904

DID THE OPPOSITION RESIST EXTRAVAGANCE? YES, BUT THEY WERE " CGAGGED I" Both Ministers and Members of the Labor Caucus Party are now tryingto blame the Opposition for not resisting extravagant expenditure. They say that if the Opposition had only told them it was wrong, they would never have done it. A highwayman might just as well blame the victii whom he has bound and gagged for not protesting against being relieved of his purse. The Opposition in 1900, under Mr. Reoid, took serious Objection to the Rocks being resumed, and in a lengthy debate on the 3rd July, 1900, they resisted the inclusion bf the " Rocks area" in the Darling Harbor Resumption Bill, and Sir William Lyne did not persist in so including it. Later on in the session Sir William Lyno passed a resolution for the re sumption, assuring the House that the total cost would be only £300,000, whereas as a matter of fact the cost has now reached about £1,000,000. Later on, specillo motions were moved challenging the financi...

LAND LEGISLATION. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 22 July 1904

LAND LEGISLATION. TO THE EDITOR. SIa,-,My attention has just been drawn to a letter in the AGE signed " Free Selector." I may certainly be wrong, but I would almost stake my bottom dollar that it was no free selector that wrote that letter. There is no doubt " Free Selector" does not like the appearance of what he terms " Mr. Millard's dilemma," and instead of Mr.'Mil lard trying to gull the bona fide selector it is undoubtedly "Free S'.leotor" who :a trying to gull them and the public too. There is no doubt some truth in the reason given by "Free Seleotor" for the difference' in the number of families settled upon the land during the term as Minister for Lannl . Mr. Carruthors, and Messrs. T. H ' and P. Crick that is no fault of M, there, in fact the other way h showed that under Mr. Oi rt bonaftde selectors were by hue tlr, t, thousands satisfied to settle upon the I% ,I And as to " Free Selector' " ohar g, of handing over to the large landholders, under what he terms a pernicious...

POINTS FOR PENSIONERS. How Waddell proposed to Reduce Pensions by £100,000, and How Carruthers Fought for the Old Men and Women. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 22 July 1904

POINTS FOR PENSIONERS. How Waddell proposed to Reduce Pensions by £100,000, AND How Carruthers Fought for the Old Men and Women, The first active step taken in the direction of establishing Old Age Pen sions was by the Reid Government, of which, Mr. Carruthers, now Leader of the Liberal Party, was a member. Mr. J. C. Neild prepared an exhaustive and able report on the subject. A sum of £350 was paid to cover his actual ex penses, and it was on a motion of cen sure (for which Mr. Waddell and the Labor Party voted) in regardto this payment, that the Reid Government lost office. The Lyne Government, taking this very report as the basis, introduced a scheme of Old Age Pensions, and was helped by the Opposition to pass it into law. .Mr. Waddell was not a member of that government. After the Government was recon structed, Mr. Waddell became Trea surer,, and in virtue of his position.had to find the money for the extravagances of MrO'Sullivan and his colleagues. On April 8th, 1903, Mr. Wad...

THE CAUCUS AND THE LIBERAL PARTY. What is the Difference ? [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 22 July 1904

THE CAUCUS RND THE LIBERAL PARTY. What is the Difference ? A question frequently heard has reference to the pledge given by can didates of their adhesion to the plat form of the Liberal and Reform Asso ciation. It is asked wherein this differs from the position of members of the Labor Caucus. Opponents of Liberalism have made great capital out of this. But th,rr ic a rry m,',Irkd dh'icrene.

ELECTION TACTICS. HOW THE GOVERNMENT HOPES TO WIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 22 July 1904

J ELECTION TACTICS. HOW THE GOVERNMENT HOPES TO WIN. The Waddcll Ministry knows that its popularity is finished. Every pos sible appeal has been made to electors. Each minister has made an claborate defence of the financial policy. They have promised future reform. Mr. Wise promised local government--Mr. O'Sullivan closer settlement. Yet they cannot win support-and are getting no nearer the restoration of their popular ity than they were before. 'rhe ordinary methods having failed; ministers are now adopting a course of action, which goes perilously near to bri bery. All of them know that they have to fight, not merely to keep the ministry in power, but to preserve their own scats in Parliament. Hero is an incomplete list of their pro mises : Mr. WADDELL, at Canowindra, promised a railway to Cowra-at Cudal he promised, if elected, a railway to Gregra-at Engowra, he said he would give them a new courthouse. These promises have all been made since Mr. Rose came into the field. Last of...

The FITZROY DOCK .and . The Prince Alfred Hospital Building Scandal. Au intense feeling of disgust was s aroused throughout the length and - breadth of this State-aye, even beyond these limits--when it became known how rampant was the mlinisterial in s fluence exercised at the Fitzroy Dock s and the new pavilions being erected in connection with Prince Alfred II Hospital. The Commission that in d luired into the former consisted of n the Chairman of the Public Service y iloard, the Under-Secretary for W\Vorks, and Mr. M'Allister, a marino engineer; the other Commission con ,, sisted of the Ministers of the Public s Service Board, so that no one will be SIfound to cavil at the impartiality of the tribunal appointed.

Mr. CARRUTHERS AND State Enmploees. A REFUTATION. De;'tro hia fib, or solphistry, in vain ! The creature's at his dirty work again. Pope. When Pope wrote these two lines, he had in view that wretched type of humanity which, when driven into a corner for want of argument to bolster up a bad case, resorts to the desperate expedient of lying to save himself. Now, the type that Pope wrote of has not died, and will never die. Only recently men, who ought to know better, as well as men who know better,' have been circulating lies with regard to the attitude of myself and the Liberal and Reform Party towards the Railway Employees and the Civil Servants. These men say, with reck less disregard of the facts, and despite my constant contradictions, that the Liberal and Reform Party intends, if it comes into power, to out down wages and salaries, to curtail privi loeges- and generally to introduce an era of suffering to State and Railway Employees. THIS .IS AN ABSOLUTE 'UNTRUTH, and the men wh...

'Mabel, you have not met my husband yet I Hugh this is your new cousin,' and Mabel found herself shaking hands with a tall, elderly man who looked her with kindly eyes. Then her cousin Jack came forward and offered his arm as dinner was an nounced. 'Thank you,' Mabel said shyly, with a blush, ' but I'm not at all tired.' He looked at her for a moment in mute surprise, but recovering himself said pleasan tly,' It is a foolish custom, but it is the fashion now in some houses to walk in alone,' and be followed her into the dinning-room. The long tabel witli its glittering silver, and the graceful arrangement of hot-house flowers, the shaded lights, and the liveried servants standing in the background, seemed to Mabel's unac...

Tampering with the Administration of Justice. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 22 July 1904

Tampering with the Ad ministration of Justice. Among the many acts of the present Govcrnment which have shocked the public couscicnce, that which stand out, perhaps most prominently is its tampering with the administration of justice, as proved from the facts elici ted in THE FRIEI)MAN CASE AND THE BACCHUS-MAlISH CASE. The Friedman case occurred in 1902, and doubtless the Government hoped that by this time the details of that shameful breach of the principles which underlie the system of trial by jury, would have been forgotten. But the memory of the people is not so short lived. The Friedman case is notorious, not only for the DISGRACEFUL INTERFERENOCE OF THE GOVERNMENT with the verdict of the jury, but also as proving a striking example of and standing reproof to, the peculiar rela tions existing between the Government and the labor Party. In September, 1902,Friedmanwas tried atDarlinghurst for having goods in his liossession knowing them to have been stolen, and the jury, after m...

TO THE Electors of New South Wales. Anr APPEAL For Your Support to the Selected LibeIal & le0irri CanidTates. FELLOW ELECTORS, On Saturday, the 6th August, you will have the opportunity of voting_ to elects new Assembly, which, for the next three years, will make the lawe of the State and control the administration of public affairs. I ask you to do your duty by your country,- irrespective of all other considerations except your country's good. The state of affairs into which we have drifted in New South Wales, must have caused serious concern to every thinking person. We have now a huge public debt which amounts to no less than £84,000,000, and a load of interest of over £3,000,000 a year, not one half of.which is earned by our railways and public undertakings. The Lyne See-WVaddell Government has added £18,500;000 to this load of debt during their brief tenure of office. Our revenues now approach £13,000,000 a year, yet our spendthrift Ministers find this insufficient to m...
