Eeid, P.O., Q.C., M.L.A., Premier of the colony, writes : ' To the Electors of New South Wales. Gentlemen, — I heartily recommend the Federal Constitution as amended at the Conference ot Premiers to your confidence and support. The Constitution is now one of the most democratic and elastic Federal Con stitutions the world has ever seen. Vote for the destruction of all barriers to your trade with the rest of Australia ! Vote for the opening of the Australian markets to the products of your industry and enterprise I Vote for the establish ment of national union and the glorious destiny that it will unfold for the benefit, not only of yourselves, but of all your descendants!'

FINANCIAL INTOXICATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Hillston Spectator and Lachlan River Advertiser — 10 June 1899
FINANCIAL INTOXICATION. Dr. MacLaunn in his recent speeches has shown himself well acquainted with the catch-phrases of Imperial Politics. Probably he remembers the description of a statesman as 'a sophistical rhetorician inebriated with the exuberance of his own verbosity.' We should be sorry to apply this description in its entirety to the doctor ; but we certainly accuse him of Anti-Federal intoxication, of course in a strictly parliamentary sense. Last year, as a member of the Finance Committee, heconsidereda £6, 400,000 tariff sufficient. This year he has in creased it to over £11,000,000, that is about two-fold. He has only increased the primary cost of Federation from £500,000 to £750,000 so far. Students of Dr. MacLaurin's recent utterances will find that he has doubled the magnitude of every bogey since last year. Some of our readers are doubt less disquieted by the imposing array of figures lately poured forth by the learned doctor. We advise them to ' appeal from Philip d...
Is the Federal Constitution Democratic? [Newspaper Article] — The Hillston Spectator and Lachlan River Advertiser — 10 June 1899
is t^e Foflerai Constitution Democratic? ? — » — If a man knows what true Democracy means, his answer to this question will be an unhesitating Yes. A demo cratic constitution is one which gives the people complete control over the administration of Government: which enables them to embody their will in legislation as soon as that will is clearly expressed : which gives them an effective supervision over the doings nf tVlfair rAnrocanfflfiitflp o * K 1 c» them to punish any abandonment of principle by dismissal from public life : which gives every man an equal voice in the direction of public affairs. These are the qualities which go to make a constitution democratic, and every one of these quali ties, and more, the Federal Constitution possesses. Rt is DemocrafiG Because s 1. The right to vote is guaranteed by the Constitu tion to every man who has it now. By Clause 41, the Constitution gives to every adult male who has a right to vote at elections for the more numerous House in his...
Diminished Expenditure. [Newspaper Article] — The Hillston Spectator and Lachlan River Advertiser — 10 June 1899
Diminished. Expenditure. Though the Federal Bill does hot J directly cut down the present ruinous extravagance of colonial administrar tions, it clears the way for the existing legislatures to do this for themselves.. The colonies will no longer need such large Parliaments : surely if Australia can be governed by two Houses numbering 112 men all told, this colony of New South Wales will not need 125 paid members in the Lower House to do what work will be left for it ! If the Governor-General of all Australia can live on £10,000 a year, New South Wales will no longer need a Governor costing in salary and allowances an amount equal to that ! And many other savings can be made in a like manner.

THE TRUTH ABOUT THE FINANCES. The Rashness of the Financial Critics. [Newspaper Article] — The Hillston Spectator and Lachlan River Advertiser — 10 June 1899
THE TROTH ABOUT THE FINANCES. The Rashness of the Financial Critics. The people who say Federation will cost 22s. 6d. per head can show no warrant in the Bill' for any such asser tion. They arrive at this conclusion ' by sheer guess-work, and others are as free to guess as they are. The Larger Colonies can Pro tect Themselves Against Over-Taxation. The smaller colonies cannot over tax you against your will. New South Wales will have more members by half in the Lower House than South Australia, Tasmania, and West Australia all put together, for New South Wales will have 26, and all these other colonies together will have only 17. If West Australia stays out and Queensland comes in, New South Wales will still have 26 against 22 of Queensland, South Australia, and Tasmania. It is true that the Senate will have the power of rejecting any v proposed tariff. But if the Senate is unreasonable, New South Wales. and Victoria can agree upon a tariff fair to them both, and then insist on its a...

The Inter-State Commission: [Newspaper Article] — The Hillston Spectator and Lachlan River Advertiser — 10 June 1899
Tie mtei-State Com mission: It is constantly being asserted that the Inter-State Commission will be a thing of fear and woe to us. Mr. Want told the settlers on the border that they would not be able to water a horse at the river without permission from the Inter-State Commission : the Anti-Federal League now fell us that this same body will manage our railways, and, of course, the first thing they will do will be to reduce the wages of the employees. WHAT IS THE INTER-STATE COMMISSION? Those who read the Bill can be under no apprehensions, but unfortu nately, many only read the Anti Federal interpretations of the Bill. The Inter-State Commission is simply a judicial body, which will adjudicate in cases where a dispute arises in con nection wish the provisions as to trade between the colonies. Certain provisions are included in the Constitution forbidding preferential railway rates and any other interference with the trade of the State for the benefit of another. The Federal Parliam...

A CHANGE FOR THE WORSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hillston Spectator and Lachlan River Advertiser — 10 June 1899
A CHANGE FOR THE WORSE, ™ The Anti-Bill League of the colony Thought last year's Bill as bad as bad could be ; This year, to Federal union still averse, They say the Amended Bill is ten times worse. And truly, for they mean, as I suppose, They find this Bill the worse one to oppose. It is not true that the Common wealth is responsible for the solvency of the States. TheCommon wealth has merely to hand back to the States three-fourths of whatever customs and excise it may choose to raise ; and if any of the States want more, they must raise it themselves by provincial taxation. All the States have ample resources of their own, arid ample powers of taxation, and are quite able to maintain their own solvency.
A Splendid Rain. [Newspaper Article] — The Hillston Spectator and Lachlan River Advertiser — 10 June 1899
A Splendid Itain. The rain wbish commenced during the early boars uf Saturday morning, 3rd in stant, was the forerunner of a whole week of showery weather, during which the tem perature contiuued very mild, Oa several evenings the rain clouds disappeared entirely, but only to come back again next morning to shed more of their moisture on tbe thirsty ground. The raiu haa been a splendid one for the crops, aud even the herbage al ready shows a decided spring. The fall has been very general all over the colony, but no big raius have been reported. To-day there a:e heavy clouds Mill hanging about, aud it is to be hoped that the predictions we hear on all sides ibat a wet seasou has com menced will bo realised to tho full.

Is it the Same Old Bill? CAN THOSE WHO VOTED AGAINST THE OLD BILL ON 3rd JUNE FAIRLY AND CONSISTENTLY GIVE THEIR SUPPORT TO THE AMENDED BILL? [Newspaper Article] — The Hillston Spectator and Lachlan River Advertiser — 10 June 1899
isiuig same oia nil? CAN THOSE WHO YOTED AGAINST THE OLD BILL ON 3rd JUNE FAIRLY AND CON SISTENTLY GIYE THEIR SUPPORT TO THE AMENDED BILL ? The answer, to this question will depend upon the reasons which' actuated the -oppositiat)._to._thc old Bill. The amendments effected at the Premiers' Conference have certainly not removed the objections of the following classes to the Bill : 1. Those Who Opposed the Old Bill because it was too Democratic, Those who fought the old Bill on this ground cannot be expected to support the Amended Bill, which is of a much more democratic character. Note the number of members of the Council who crowd the platforms at the Anti-Federal meetings. 2. Those Who are Opposed to any kind of Federation. Some of these pose as Unificationists. 'The scheme of unification is impos sible. They know it, but they play the part of the dog in the manger, and will fight to wreck any Federal Bill. Such persons are really Anti Federalists. They will oppose not only this Bi...
