LABOUR IN POLITICS. The Political Recommendations of the General Council A.L.F. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 15 November 1890
-LABOUR^H flOtmCS— The Political Recommendations of the General Connoil A.L.F. - The Genera^ Council of the AA.P;, in reeom mending to the unions affiliated a. basis for poli ^icalietion; obviously took no objection to any measure calculated to t^^oi^tne condition of tjie workers. FactoryJiiUs, Eight Hour Bills, Boiler Inspection Bills, 'Shipping Bills, Lien Bills and such measures are naturally good enough so far as they go^to need no advocacy or consideration. What the Council aimed at was evidently to lay down a basis defining as -dearly as possible Mie~ultimate aim of the iabanr_j movement so that from the moment of its adop tion, if it be adopted, labour in politics would take up a position which would place it at once beyond the narrow party lines with which the masses have hitherto been deluded and would raise a distinct political issue which none but workers or true sympathisers with the workers — could pretend to adopt. — Such an^mportsnt basis oufht^not^to be c^s|deredjush...

CHAPTER XXI. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 15 November 1890
Chapter XXI. It had been suggested by Dr.Tieete that we should devote the next morning to an inspection of the schools and^JdUeges of the city, with some attempt on his own part at an explanation of the educational system of the twentieth century. ?' # ' * # xi After all,' I remarked, no amount of education can cure'B5Hiirai-dTilness-or-4ttake— upjjar original mental deficiencies. Unless the average natural mental capacity of men is much above its level in my day, a high education must be lM^tty nearly thrown away on a large element of the population. We used to hold . that a certain amount.of susceptibility to educational influences is required to make a mind' worth cultivat ing, just as a certain natural fertility in soil is. required, if it is to repay tilling.' ' Ah,' said Dr. Leete, '? I am glad you used that illus -tratioa, for it is just the one I would have chosen to set forth the modern v.iew of education.
