To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Observer and Normanby Advertiser — 19 November 1914

To the Editor. Sir,-It is deplorable that at a time like this, when a great spirit of patri otic unanimity and national cohesion has spread itself thropghout the einpire, that the sectarian :issheo ?hould again be forced to tle front by a few self interested bigots who wish to tamper with the State educational system. It Is doubtful if any country under the sun, with the possible exception of the other 'Australian States, expends so nmuch money on education, and does it so wisely, as Yictoria. It is quite cer .tain that the vast majority of electors, if :in unbiassed opinion could be-given, are fully stisfied with the existing co6iditibns; 'but sectarian hatred aiid the underground engineeripg, which soriis inseparirble from'reoligion, my be trusted to see to it that the iesues be, (oram the people at the ..forthciming : stat. electson:,are agagin obsatired by ' ti Q A-seots situiject.

MISTAKEN PATRIOTISM. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Portland Observer and Normanby Advertiser — 19 November 1914

MISTAKEN PATRIOTLISM. (To the Editor.) Sir,-Kindly allow me to trespass a little on your valuable; space. As a Portland shopkeeper it has repeatedly come under my notice that many people fancy they are acting in a truly patri otic spirit when refusing to buy Ger man and Austrian made goods. To such I stould like to point out that they are makling a great mistake and causing loss end worry to inoft-nding business peop'e, who are all of them quite as patriotic as it is possible to be. Cer teinly most'of us have got enemy goods on our shelves, but how can you hurt either Germans or Austrians by refus ing to pur:hase their goods at the pre sent time 4 After the, war, then I grant you such dealings might perhaps amount to helping our enemies; but at present no otne can trade with the enemy, and in buying their goods you really only help us,your friends and fellow patriots, bub if you refuse to purchase these goods, it is we, not they, who must suffer the loss. Thui you do not harm the Ge...

The train bringing Senator M'Kisesock was 40 minutes late and de'ayed ithe meeting to that extent and many who carme to the hall did not stay, while others preferred a circus over the way to a dissertation on State politics. The chair was occupied by Mr. R. Herbertson, jun., president of the local branch of the P.L.C. Senatol" M-Kissoek, who was well received, apologised for his late a-rival, 'oiid'Sid there was. need for iadical rp. forms' in railway management, which would be effected if Labor were given an opportunity.
