-^mmm^imfrmsm— Bow Gaoler Toier Played a CruelPart.

Uompared with tbat tbe final catastrophe of her life was almost devoid of bitterness. Now the HvesTof criminals are singularly free from episodes of this kind. A felon goes to gaol for a sfaeoified -tune — If the yuiluaupuy by whioh he is deprived of his liberty is sound then be has no right to look for untimely release. Anyhow, excepting in the case of capital offenders, people do not as a rule trouble to interfere with the course of the law. A man has proved himself a criminal ; he has been caught, and we rub our hands as the gaol door swings to behind him. Zt is the politioal offender who sometim...

Of all the many gratuitous insults offered to the intelligence of its oon tubutort this last is by far the worst. It is the worst because it has not even the merit of the usual plausibility. Whether it be the product of ignoranoeor the outcome of a deliberate spirit of misrepresentation, it none the less clearly shows the extremities of rabidness to which the 'mob 'behind the press in jtheir contempt of public in telligence, are prepared to resort It is such a gross aud palpable insult as to be almost entirely beneath oonteinpb.

Labour at the Ballot Box. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 25 February 1893

Labour~aT£he Ballot T&ox. P. J. Macnamaba, of Southport, writes:— You have struck tho true keynote in recent editorials in the Wokkek on the coming general election. Labour, to be even moderately successful in the cam paign, must present a solid front. ' United we stand, divided we full, must be the watchword of the workers. All petty side issues must be ruthlessly cast adrift, all subjects of political and economic conten tion among the people themselves must be buried fathoms deep, till the great battle for the legitimate rights of Labour has been manfully fought to the end — till it has been won or lost. In the past our differ ences of opinion on points of minor import ance have been the primary cause of our downfall. Instead of being a welldis ciplined and well-organised army, prepared to give or take battle, and to abide the for tunes of political war, we have been split up into regiments, each fighting for its own shibboleth, and therefore easily defeated in detail.* W...
