The Joke regretted the absence from the picnic of Deakln, the Jeremy DIddler of Australian politics; then proceeded: "However, Mr. Deakln was resting and recuperating, and he (Cook) was not without hope that they might soon see him (Deakin) again doing battle for the principles for which he had sacrificed so much/' How sweet! How comradely 1 But Is Jokook prepared to stand down from the Liberal leadership In favor of the oratorical Alf?

WHY PATENTS ARE SUPPRESSED. [Newspaper Article] — Truth — 10 January 1914

WHY PATENTS AKE SUP PRESSED. The patent laws sometimes have ef fects altogether contrary to those which were intended by the politicians who passed the laws; and altogether con trary to the beat interests of a com munity. An Instance of this Is when some inventive genius designs something that will enable an article to be pro duced without the ?ostly machinery that has been Introduced In an industry *by the capitalists who control that industry. The introductlpn of the Dew patent means the "scrapping" of tho costly machinery'that the capitalists have put into the industry. What do the capital ist? do then? Do they buy the patent; and promptly scrap their machinery? Not a bit of it; they buy the patent— and promptly suppress that patent. That Is to say, they say nothing at all about the new device, and as, this Is protected by the patent laws, nobody dares to make use of It, and the Industry Jogs along in the same old ruts. In time, possibly,, when the machinery- seems to be about to...
