And we have some new Co-operators in the literary line anxious to let off the surplus g'as. -*? *- « ; - « Ninny Melville, Chairman of Committees in the New South Wales Assembly, got mad the other night in the chair because members kept interrupting. He said that, honest men should recollect they were not in a taproom. Billy Graham got on his tail at that remark, although Billy knows what a taproom is alright. Ninny apologised after wards, and said it was a bit narking if the chair had to keep talking until its throat was ' ??- % quite sore. Does...

"CAESAR'S COLUMN" WILL IT BE BUILT ? [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 12 March 1892
' CJESAR'S COLUMN'- WILL IT BE BUILT? Nearly everyone lias read Bellamy's ' Looking Backward,' and that pleasant and instructive little Socialist romance has done an immense amount of good in teaching people to think. 'Looking Backward' shows us a beautiful picture of what might be ; and has done much to drive away that iimorant terror of Socialism which O , caused millions to look upon it as a scheme of robbery and plunder to enable the loafers and criminals to live upon the thrifty and industrious. I am not now defending every de tail or principle in ' Looking- Back ward,' because it is evidently a rose water picture, written from the stand point of- present day 'cultured' society, and embodying the benevo lent after-dinner ideal of well-fed prosperity. It might break down in the working ; and it certainly does not provide the way for j ts own accomplishment — doesn't provide for the shock which, I think, must cjme before the stubborn 'Old Order' will give place to the New. ' Caes...
