PRACTICAL POLITICAL PROPOSALS. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 8 September 1910
PRACTICAL POLITICAL PROPOSALS. THE outstanding feature of the Labor Party's election fight is the prac ticability of its programme proposals. These are the natural result of the demo cratic method of determining them. The construction of Labor's plarL of campaign is not the work of any individual or coterie of individuals, but it is the outcome of the deliberations of a representative confer ence of Labor organizations. Its prac ticability stands supreme because in it is focussed the actual demands of the democracy, it stands in marked contrast to the Liberal manifesto, which is thrust on the people, who are asked to follow where the politicians would lead them. This dictatorial method of campaigning and legislating belongs to a past era; the people themselves now make the pro gramme and elect Parliamentary repre sentath'es to carry out their requirements. This latter practice marks the Labor Party as the modern democratic party, and is one reason why certain success is expected to ...
A PLEA IS NOT EVIDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 8 September 1910
A PLEA IS NOT EVIDENCE. *T'*HE 'S.M. Herald' says the charge *? that the Wade Government packed the jury which tried Peter Bowling for conspiracy is easy of refutation. The public would like to have that refutation as promptly 'as possible, for it has so far had to remain with only Mr. Wade's negative say-so as' evidence for the de fence. Mr. Wade is a lawyer, and -was once nearly a judge, and, surely he will not maintain that when an accused says, ' It is an infamous falsehood,' a serious charge is finally and satisfactorily dis posed of. Bearing in mind Mr. Wade's characteristic readiness to rush into print, with all the evidences on his own side,' in every other matter of political controversy, the 'public is' constrained to infer that his omission to reply categori cally to the jury-packing charge is one enforced by want of any 'evidence for the defence. When an accused person -will not go into the witness-box on his 'own behalf, a sound reason for his refraining to do so is alw...
HONORING OUR FLAG [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 8 September 1910
HONORING OUR FLAG ON the 15th of the month the first warship' built for the 'Common- wealth is to leave European for Australian waters;' yet, as far as our people at prr-sent know, no decision has been made as to ' what ensign the ship will sail' under, it ? appears some difficulty has been made in ? Imperial quarters as fo the flying of the Australian flag, on the ground that foreign powers have not recognized the symbol ' of the Commonwealth, and a suggestion has been made that till an understanding has been arrived at with them the Australian ensign should not be hoisted; but, in peace time, it matters not one iota whether the :', world recognises our flag or not, and as , we are not likely to be at war for some * years yet, the question of the recognition of our ensign may very well stand over till the next Imperial Conference, when Canada and Australia could both demand , such recognition. In the meantim-\ Jet it a be remembered that Canadian-Governim-nt ships have fired seriou...

PROPOSALS FOR LAW REFORM. ONE OF DEMOCRACY'S GREATEST NEEDS. III.— THE EQUITABIE JURISDICTION. By J. D. FITZGERALD (Barrister-at-Law). . 'As |i modvil of pleading the present . equity system is, in my opinion, dis tinctly faulty.'— Chief Justice Cullen, when a leading Equity K.C. ' With regard to our judicial sys tem, I can see no reason, based on* common sense, for continuing the pre sent division into two jurisdictions (common law and equity). If a per son has a Just cause of comnlaint, to which there may. be certain equitable ? incidents, it is absurd on the face of it that he should not be able to pur sue his l'emedy in one court, or -tliat he ' should not be able to invoke the ? benefit of both legal systems in one proceeding. The division is not na tural, it is entirely artificial.— Mr. D. G, Ferguson, barrister-at-law.
