THE COMING OF THE CHOW [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 26 March 1892
THE COMING OF THE CHOW ' You can never reform the world until the rotten and effete civilisation of Europe is swept away. The material you have to work on — the great mass of the people — is . impregnated with corruption, and the process . of eclucation'is too slow. The disease grows fa ster than the remedy works . N othin g but de - struction for it, old man. Monarchies and Republics must be demolished, and a fresh start made.' ' ' N onsense, ' ' I replied . ' ' Suppose somebody invented a jo! an which would overthrow exist ing civilization, upon what foundation would the new order be built P Would the few survivors of a war of European nations construct a better civilisation than the present ?

Are those to be the founders of the new order ?' ' Well, said the first speaker, I don't think s\ich people would be the b...

MELBOURNE MOVEMENTS [By A.J. S.l Melbourne, March 22. Stacks of fun here at a meeting of the Young Victorian Patriotic Association, at Collingwoo.d, on Friday night last. I was reminded of a lot of hard cases of shearers when listening to interjections. Sample : — Gushing young Doctor: 'This Young Patriotic Association is to be the electric spark which is to fire the mine which will send you to blazes, ' ' roared a hard case . in the gallery. Result : Collapse of Doctor. The Chairman complained that Mr Jowett, one of the originators of the movement, had been five minutes on his feet out of the alloted twelve.

BIRD'S-EYE VIEW FROM SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 26 March 1892
BIRD'S-EYE VIEW ? « — — __ — FROM SYDNEY. [By Tui.T The Black ' Free Pass' scandal turned up in the House on Monday night in the shape of the committee's report, which found the case as against Mr Black proved, and censured -that gentleman accordingly. It appeared that Mr Hassall, M.L.A., had done something* similar on one occasion ; but in his case (and here the report becomes a little mixed as well as slightly humorous) the distinction is made that Avhereas Mr Black was a single man, Mr Hassall was married,' and although the latter did not use the pass for his wife, it was used by a ' near and dear relative. ' ' From which it would appear that Mr Black's original sin, so to speak, consisted in not getting married before he applied for that wretched ticket to ?enable someone else to ' travel on the nod' at our bleeding* country's expense. ?Oh, Black! if you'd known, in days long agone What danger lurked in a 'jree pass' sell, You'd have given up ' sport or married— in short Ta'en a...

POLITICS IN VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hummer — 26 March 1892
POLITICS IN VICTORIA. .Shiels,. Victorian Premier, made a four hours- speech at Casterton last Saturday night to 800 of his constitutents. The Victorian Labor Party generally support the Govern ment policy. The programme propagated by the Government consists briefly of two planks : Retrenchment and Fresh Taxation. They contemplate a million of a deficit, and the country is swarming with unemployed. They propose to retrench in the railways and other public departments, by docking salaries; and by fresh customs duties — not specified— and an increase of the stock tax, they reckon to tax the country into a scate of prosperity in less than no time. Mr. Shiels thinks it .would be unwise to provoke a fight on the ?' ' single vote question j ust yet, though he slates the ' dual voters ' in good style. He says the present Victorian Land' Tax, which is a tax on area, is s sham and a fraud, and he will replace it by a tax on land values ?sometime in the dim and distant bye and bye. Altogether...
