A UNIVERSAL QUEST. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 15 June 1912

A UNIVERSAL QUEST. -The drought has broken, and we are consequently happy. Are we? Problems have changed expression, bu; problems Mi«»v ' rpmain. We arc far from confi dent concerning the harvest; we do not even know how much seed is malted, how many acres must be resown. Prices con tinne high, money is dear, bankers are closing fists. If one line of breakers has broken on the sands, another can be seen advancing — storm threatens. It is a mat ter largely of temperament whether, a man in any given circumstances will take a bright or gloomy view. Optimism or pes simism may become confirmed into a habit, so that in the one case the per fection of misery will allow this world to remain the best of all possible ,worlds, arid in the other the joy of living will scarcely balance the .argument for suicide. Probably the average mortal is -neither optimist nor pessimist, or rather is each by turns, 'dwelling wholly neither on the delectable mountains above nor in the do lorous valleys beneat...

LICENCE REDUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 15 June 1912

LICENCE REDUCTION. One of the wisest and most practical reforms standing to the credit of the late t-ir Thomas Bent is that -of the Liquor Li cence Reduction .Board,. a permanent bodv engaged in dosing superfluous public bouses in Victoria at -the expense of the trade. It .has rendered excellent wort without -friction, achieving results where probably local option would . have failed. One finds it difficult to follow the analogy which malrrn^ the board anti-democratic. All institutions created by a Parliament elected by the people are obviously de mocratic, and though local option mav seem to be a more democratic method in truth it is not 60 since it is equally an institution created by the same Parlia ment. ' The value of local option should be ^determined on quite another footing. Ihe Parliament representing the popular Trill and - the popular interests must con sider the regulation of the trade whether through a Licensing Bench, a Reduction Licence Board, or the direct local vote...
