TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889

TO THE EDUOB. Sir— I observe that Mr, Dillon in his speech at the Town Hall, though declaring that he was prepared to justify the Plan of Campaign anywhere as honorable and moral, carefully abstained from explaining what the Plan of Campaign really is. Under the Plan of Cam paign the tenants on any given estate are to assemble and determine generally under the direction of some member of Parliament to demand an all round abatement of the rents then due, and under this scheme the man who may be holding his farm at an extremely low rent is to combine with the man who perhapB took bis farm when land was high snd endeavor to extort the same terms from the landlord. The demand made does not usually err on the aide of moderation, and if the landlord refuses to accede to it, however ' willing he may ba to make a reasonable abate ment according to the varying circumstances of hie tenants, tbe money ib paid over to some Parnelltte member of Parliament or other trustee. This is done, as Mr. D...

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889

TO THE EDITOE. Sir— It is often said that 'children should be seen and not heard,' but in my opinion and that of many others the proverb might ba extended and made to apply to Germans and Jews, and foreign Catholic priests, who should be neither seen nor heard on platforms where Irish questions, with which they have no prac tical acquaintance, are discussed, I am far from despising Germans as colonists, because I know their value, but they and such others as I have named ought to be thankful for the privileges which they enjoy under the liberal laws of the British Empire, and should leave the English; Irish, Scotch, and Welsh, to settle their differences in their cvn way. That the ways by which part of tha Irish people work for the removal of their grievances (of the existence of which I am not yet convinced by Mr, Dillon) are the right ones ie fctill a matter of consider able dcubt to me, because I have had opportunities of hearing the other side of the question from Irishmen who d...

TO THE EDITOE. Sir—' For every life that has been cruelly taken by a few brntalieed peasants in their despair, the English land laws and the system of extortion they maintain have as cruelly token a thousand lives,' The above state ment is in my opinion a complete answer to mort of the remarks made in the letter signed '* Unionist,' which appeared in your columns this morning. It tells ub why there is an Irish question. It tells us how it iB that large hearted, earnest, honest men feel themselves compelled to relinquish much of that which makes life happy and enjoyable in order to espouse the cause of a downtrodden and oppressed people. It is a knowledge of such facts that cauBeB them to devote their lives to political agitationamonget.andtheedacation of the teople, well knowing that by so doing they will earn the hatred and have to bear that brutal calumny, insults, and ill-treatment which a powerful privileged class know but too well how to pour upon those who attack their privile...

What eoler of hair ia most beautiful has been for ag«8 a vexed question, but there Is a general con census of opinion that grey hair is not at all beauti ful, and this result of ' Time's remorseless scythe' can best ne avoided by using lira S.
