POLITICS AND PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 16 May 1896
POLITICS AND PAELIAMENT. It was recorded of Goldsmith, after his death, that ' he left no kind of writing untouched, and that he touched nothing which he did not adorn.' We have grave doubts, however, whether even the magic pen of Goldsmith could adorn or render pleasing and elegant the political life of this colony. It would certainly require all the strength and power of sublime poetic genius to cast rays of romance and imaginative beauty around the portty person of Mr. Reid, while the Parliamentary talking machine, of which he is the manipulator-in-chief, would still remain barren and uninteresting were its daily monotonous existence to be chronicled even by a Milton or a Homer. We cannot hope, therefore, to dignify this subject, but all the same, perhaps, we may succeed in lifting it a little from the lowest depths of commonplace in which other writers generally leave it. In 'the first place, it may not be unnecessar}' for us to state the fact that the position of a political le...

COMPULSORY ARBITRATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 16 May 1896
COMPULSORY ARBITRATION. In the face of the present crisis in the New castle coal trade no one who has at heart the prosperity and progress of New South Wales can fail to realise the duty that is upon us to do whatever may be in our power to render compulsory the settlement by arbi tration of such disputes. In business more, perhaps, than in any other matter, we must be prepared for dis agreements and conflicts, and, as a conse quence, it behoves us, in the interest of order and of the common weal, to establish some reasonable method of adjusting them. * * * This method can be no other than arbi tration. There are but two ways of settling a disagreement — by reason, namely, and by force. The former is the rational and the civilised method ; the latter the irrational and the savage. We have to choose between the two. We must either compare our differ ences, and adjust our claims by the decisions of an intelligent and impartial tribunal, or we must rely upon our strength to make our cl...

AT HOME AND ABROAD. One for the Fair Sex. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 16 May 1896
AT HOME AND ABROAD. One for the Pair Sex. Fair ladies have got an immense rise in the estimation of our clever con temporary the Bulletin— & fact, we need not say, that is immensely to their advantage, and does them infinite honour. The occasion has been the part taken, or supposed to be taken, by the women voters in the recent Referendum in South Australia with regard to the secular system. The result — favourable to godlessness— quite frees the sex in the eyes of our contemporary from a suspicion of clericalism that had been supposed to attach to them. Our clever contemporary is now in a position to hail them, with great satisfaction, as godless democrats. And who knows ? What has been may A G-OOd be again. Possibly there may yet Time return for our clever contemporary a Coming, better time than even he dares to hope for. The anti- clerical spirit may yet once more, before many years are past, attain to the glorious point of culmination at which, for instance, we saw it ar...
NOTES AND COMMENTS. Infidelity Reassured. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 16 May 1896
NOTES AND COMMENTS. Infidelity Reassured. The extension of the franchise to women has been always regarded with aversion bv the sporting, the whisky and beer, and the inhdel and secular newspapers. They dreaded that^the female voter would strive to close the avenues of drinking and gam bling to her husband and sons, and above all, they shuddered with 'horror at the thought of her voting under the pressure of ' clerical influence.' The first use, however, of her political rights in South Australia at the late election has completely reassured them. Their fears have been dispelled, and they have hastened to record their joy that women, too are under the spell of nineteenth century enlightenment, and that they will support the ' godless ' schools, the low taverns, and the gambling dens and hells with the same fervour and avidity as the modern agnostic, swearing, betting, drinking male. The infidel secular papers will now, we take it, be the warmest advocates, as before they were the mo...
