THE UNEMPLOYED. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 7 February 1896
THE UNEMPLOYED. Thus tho S. M* Herald, with reference to tho proposal that tho Government should provido work for the unemployed : — ' ISvury public mau who has given the least attention to the subject knows, that it is impossible for any Government to J aasume the absolute responsibility of pro viding work for the unemployed. Such a course, if persisted in, would convert the whole community into a gigantic poor law union for the maintenance of the floating poverty of the world. Every in centive to independent labor w uld be taken away by the provision of light Ge yornment employment for all who cho-e to ask for it, and the conditions by which private enterprise' is supported and awarded wou'd be destroyed. Tbe last condition of such a community would in evitably be worse trnn its first.'

NOTES ON CURRENT EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 7 February 1896
NOTES ON CURRENT EVENTS. :-:~ A little bird has whiepsrod to me that there - 'r~* are dissensions In the single tax camp — that -i ' w-- ' the little clan of illuminati banded together _ „-„?- for the destruction of monopoly no longer ^/r-|t^ display that unanimity of purpose that should '«',* re mark the proceedings of the evangelists of a l „' . new gospel. It is said that even over the j'J'- , municipal election now pending the league is - . split up into two factions. This is sad if true, but aiter all it is no more nor less than is to be expected from poor human nature, even when people unite in aupport of a principle. Professing Christians who meet together in a tabernacle to worship the Almighty, of course, have their little differences. It does, however, seam a little strange that discord should creep ia at assemblages convened for the worship of Hemy Guovgo. * ? # # Another interesting illustration of tbe man ner in which Victoria exhibits her gratitude for the opening of N...

MELBOURNE GRAIN MARKET. Wednesday, February 12.
