THE APPROACHING CAMPAIGN. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 17 February 1894
THE APPROACHING CAMPAIGN. Sir, — Whatever importance the adoption of the one man one vote system may have bad as the affirmation of a popular principle, by itself it possesses no practical importance, the number of plural voters being so limited as to exercise no appreciable1 influence on a general election. Thi3 is Bhown by the fact that the electoral rolls for the wVinlo nninnxr nVinw rtnlw A1Q vnf.pa lpqR fVtan f.lip. previous rolls. Yet the adoption of the one man one vote was regarded as being so essential to the proper working of the new electoral system that in the effort to secure it other and more important points were overlooked. However, it is of no use crying over spilt milk, and we must take the Electoral Act as we find it. With all its defects it need not prevent our having a better Parliament than that wjth which the country is disgusted, even with a ple thora of candidates in each constituency. It is a matter which rests entirely with the electors themselve3. In sele...

Thirty- eight years ago I heard with pride and pleasure, in the back blocks of what is now Queensland, the Mail t»»w «^' ww y ^iiaiuuu. »u tuu muttb liijortti paper lu the Southern Hemisphere. But, as it became a valuable property, it must become conservative. We have done well, and it muBt be your own fault if you have not, seems to bethe ethics of the Mercury, else why in the same iBsue, amongst the ' Items of Interest,' are we told as proof that farmers have not benefited by protection, ' that there was an enormous increase in the number of farmers who became insolvent last year,' adding 'yet there are still farmers who have not given up the foolish idea that in being taxed they are being beneficed, etc' Now, I could readily understa...
