THE MEAT TROUBLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 31 March 1914
TIHE MEAT TROUBLE. 'Tiere was an amusing satire on the m.a:ticy meat strike at a wedding cele. o:taioa there last week. In the long lit: of '"handsome and costly presents' m:,le to the bride vas six pounds of m1itto chops, a roast of beet and a s:.ig of sausages. The meat strike i>, however, too substantial a fact tc :? hli affected by the arrows of sa ", and is by no means a thing of'the Ip" yet a while, and,, according to a '.ieey butcher; the effects may be per mi:tl.ent. The period of enforced ab sil.uion has taught the public, we arc a cured, that it is possible to do.with ..t meat, or at any rate to do with n.ur. less than formerly. .If this be i. ten the strike has taught a whole :ome lesson that many medical me, ,.: -e spent much effort to impress upon tt . public mind. There is no doubt it at. as Dr. Philip Muskets puts it, in i,: i,ble work on "Health and Diet i.- Australia," the average Aoustralian eats much too much me.at for this cli I:cute, and both for his physical...

OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. COMMONWEALTH POWERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 31 March 1914
OVUR MELBOVUBNE LETTER. COMMONWEALTH 1'OWERS. The Federal Attorney-General, MIr WV. II. Irvine, is one of those truly great Liberals who never tails to rise superior to paroachialism in any shape or form, and when speaking at the Constitutioinal Club Roilns to imembers of the Young Liberal Speakers' Asso riation, he dealt very clearly and with. out reservation, on the powers of Par liament. He dissented from the views expressed by the Privy Council with respect to. the Sugar Commission, that tihe powers of the Federal Parliament were delimited by the State. There is no doubt that sooner or later the powers of the Federal Parlianment must be supreme, and the constitution must ice amended to provide for this. As \Ir Irvine explained. If the union is 1 ihealthy one, there must be a steady tendency for the powers of the cen tral authority to increase. Neverthe 1 s, the State must be independent in its own sphere. ane Attorney-General indiirted the necessity for tne present tGovernment t...
