THE HEATHCOTE-LOWRY EPISODE. — arceaiswftott. ~ A letter like the following tells itB own tale, and there is no need to emphasise the unhappy circunrftanoes alluded to. Most unionists remember them too well, and V- wit]j tne exception of Mr. Whitely King secretary of the N.S.W. Pastoralists1 Union, upon whom the letter throws the obub of an explanation and some evidence in support of his own veracity, people outside the ranks of Labour Unionism need not bother their heads about it.

I saw the article yesterday for the first time, or I would have written this statement earlier.

LAND NATIONALISATION. What Good Would It Do? [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 4 February 1893

If land is held under a thirby, sixty, or ninety yean lease (instead of being sold), it passes all the same beyond tbe reach of all but the actual lessee for tbe period of the lease, and to that extent he ...
