"It is very hard to say just what the position of Labor in England is today," he said, 'because I have been away for :ome time, and changes occur so quickly in politics. When I left, however, the party was making steady prorgess, ahii the general indications are that we shall eventually be returned to power. "This has been made possible by the fact that after the last elections we put forward the claim to be recognised azm the official Oppositionr in the House of Commons.

With Many Years' Service Driver Claims Railway Record [Newspaper Article] — News — 25 July 1923
With Many Years' Service Driver Claims Railway Record Who has the longest serv'ice as a locomotive driver in the South Aus -ralan railways? Mr. Len Harrison, of Port Augusta, claims the distinc tion. He has been driving 43½ years. Mr. Harrison started in November, 1S79, by taking the first train from Port Augcusta to Quorn. He has been on that picturesque run through the Flinders Ranges ever since. He also took; the first train into Beltana, and later to Farina. When the Farina extention was completed, the Govern rment offered a free ride to all who wished to attend the opening cere mony, and three hundred jumped at the chance.

WAGES AND WORKSHOP EIGHT HOURS DAY [Newspaper Article] — News — 25 July 1923
WAGES AND WORKSHOP EIGHT HOURS DAY It is doubtful if South Australia will favor an alteration of the date of Eight Hours Day from the second Wednesday in October to May Day. This is the view of Mr. T. P. Howard (secretary of the Trades and Labor Council). The council recently received a com munication from the Victorian Coun cil inviting an expression of opinion. New South Wales unions favor an alteration. "It is extremely doubtful if a depar ture will be made in this State, where the second Wednesday in October is fixed by Act cf Parliament," said Mr. Howard. "May 1 is suitable for cele brations in Europe, where that date marks the opening of the spring, but weather conditions in Australia are different. If we adopted the winter holiday it is certain that the atten dances at nour functions wvould de crease. '.'The money raised on Eight Hours Day is used to liquidate the £5,000 debt against the new wing of the Trades Hall."
