The Referenda. Vote "No." [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 29 March 1911
The Referenda. Vote " No." Mr, Josiah Thomas regards the public as now well served by the Postal De partment. We may judge, therefore, what kinds of service in other directions he and his party will deem good enough for Australia, should the people be foolish enough to adopt unification. Each referenda proposal must be accepted or rejected as a whole. There is no middle course open to the elector. A vote to enable the Commonwealth Pariiament to extend the jurisdiction of the Federal Arbitration Court so that it may, for instance make a common rule applicable to the carrying on of the bootmaking industry in all parts' of Australia, will also enable that Parlia ment to make laws which will practically take the control of our railways away from the State Government, and place it in the hands of an irresponsible external authority. " The Parliament shall, subject to this Constitution, have, power to make laws' for the peace, order, and good govern- I ment of the Commonwealth, with respe...
