REVIEW OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 24 September 1873
REVIEWV OF TILE WEEK. Sir Charles Duffy wants to "know you know" when the session will termi nate ; so do a great many more hon. morn. bhers. The work of legislating for the country four or five out of the twelve months is something superhuman to the mind of the average member of Parlia a ment, and then the pay is so insufllceint too, £300 a year and free travelling all over the country. Thy I would venture Sto say that three-fourths of the present members of the Assembly, fibr any ability they display in the position they are called upon to occupy by a grateful country, are not worth £560 per annum much less £300, and the idea of these men crying out against the length of the seossion is something superlatively ridiculous. The release of Messrs. Mount and tMorris will not add to the popularity of the Attorney-General in some quarters, although I very much question whether the fact of these men undergoing a sen tence of unusual severity would have served any good purpose. Fifteen ye...
