VOLUNTARY INSURANCE GAIN TO FRIENDLY SOCIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 6 February 1914
VOLUNTARY INSURANCE GAIN TO F1UHXDLY SOCIETIES. If the compulsory Insurance Act luul no other defects, the multiplicity of cooks would probably spoil tho insur ance broth. The officials of friendly societies who have Cor years past car ried on their quiet but magnificent work have now to be in constant touch with a number of committees, referees, audi tors, and Inspectors, while the Insur ance Commissioners nro always hover ing in tho background armed with a spoonful of new regulations, special or ders or provisional special orders, to stir into the refreshing decoction. This multiplication of authorities is not only costly to an absurd degree, but it will restrict the free development of the mutual benefit societies to a very serious extent. No movements in his tory have been more spontaneous, moro true to national tradition, and less ham j pored by ofllclal interference than the friendly society and trade union move ments in this country.

No, I am glad to say that from the outside no one could possible guess his poetical tendencies. ! lie'also never docs eccentric things, such as talking aloud to himself in the ; streets, or walking down Bond-street with a lame liamingo 011 a piece of ribbon. The only occasion on which his be havior was not absolutely normal was when he engaged a housemaid. * This doesn't sound at all poet tea), but really it was most romantic.
