The Liberal Syrlney dailies presume more and. more on the shortness of the public-.memory regarding comparatively recent occurrences. Writing of ' The -Country Elector' and posing as his only reliable political guide, the ' S.M. Herald ' says: 'He has not heard so much as the Sydney electors of the injustice done to Bowling and his friends. But he knows even better than' the Sydney elector of the dire consequences of a strike designed to deprive him- of the means of getting his produce to market, and he knows how the Government was hindered at every turn- in its efforts to assist him.' A plain summary of the' chief facts of the strike may be of information to any country elector not already seized of these, (if such exist); and after reading this he may be able to form a fair opinion regard ing the ' Government's efforts to assist him.'
