MONARO BY-ELECTION A VICTORY FOR LABOR. NATIONALIST CANDIDATE BADLY BEATEN. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 30 November 1918

MONARO BY-ELECTION A VICTORY FOR LABOR. NATIONALIST CANDIDATE BADLY BEATEN. The by-election for the Monaro seat in the N.S.W. Parliament took place last Saturday, tne result being as follows.— Jack Bailey (Labor) ? 3683 P. .Sullivan (Nationalist) ? 2005 — Hungerford (Independent) .. .96 Majority for Labor ? 1678 The voting at the general elections in March, 1917, was:— Miller (Labor), 3947; Perkins (Nationalist), 2356; majority for Labor, 1591. It will thus be seen that Labor has increased the majority, al though less votes were cast at the by election than at the general elections 20 months ago. Labor's victory at Monaro is significant, and taken' In conjunction with the fact that at two' previous by-elections (Macquarie and Upper Hunter) the Nationalists lost ground would indicate that the Holman Fuller Government is extremely unpopu lar, especially in the country. Mr. John Storey (Leader of the Labor Party), commenting on the result, said: — 'It is a great victory, and taken in c...

THE WORKERS AND EMPIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 30 November 1918

[?] The ending of the great war presents many grave problems to the working classes. The war could not have been waged had not 'the support of the work ers been given to the belligerent Govern ments, and it was the loss of the workers' support which brought down the vast and mighty Empires of Central Europe in ruins. No more overwhelming proof of the power of the workers could be given than the extraordinary and tremendous events of the past few weeks. After four years of almost uninterrupted military suc cesses, with huge resources yet untapped, the military power of the Central Em pires was suddenly broken by the mere fact that the working 'classes no longer desired to win.' The military strategy of ♦lie great Generals, the will to victory of the governing class, the commercial classes, the professional and 'respectable' middle classes, all conventionally pat riotic, availed nothing. These classes could only talk about their determination to win the war. The actual doin£ of it dep...

N.S.W. ELECTORAL AMENDMENT. RESULT OF SECTIONAL CONFLICT. AN ASININE DECISION. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 30 November 1918

N.S.W. ELECTORAL AMENDMENT. RESULT OF SECTIONAL CONFLICT. AN ASININE DECISION. Amusing and at the same time instruc tive is a Wednesday's item of political news. According to 'S. M. Herald' the N.S.W. Cabinet, in introducing its amending elec toral legislation, won't suggest either Pro portional Representation or Preferential Voting. When tiie bill comes 'before the House whatever member first catches the Speak er's -eye will have the opportunity of pro posing one or the other system. Should the result of debate and voting on the question give that member's choice a majority, it will be embodied in the bill. Should it be rejected, the other alter native will be taken as generally accept able. Then, presumably, sectionality will die and party solidarity again assert it self. The defeated Nationalist section will bow its head, the victorious Nation alist section will cock its tail, and each member of these will moan or crow 'aye' according to his feelings. It is added by the 'Herald' ...

THE FEDERAL PARLIAMENT. THE PROBABILITY OF AN EARLY ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 30 November 1918

fife FEfiitAL PAMJWMT. THE PROBABILITY OF AN EARLY ELECTION. There are many indications that the ''Nationalist' Party is not altogether a : Ji&Ppy family, and it is quite on the cards jjjhat a general election may be sprung on * the country within the next three or four months. .Of course there are many good reasons ^ from the point of view of the average member why an election should not take ] place a day sooner than the Constitution % provides. It is riot in human nature, when in the enjoyment of a soft job, to go look , iae for trouble. There are risks to be 'taken even with the safest of seats, and She worry and expense of an election cam paign is not an experience to be faced by a sitting member so long as it can be honorably avoided. These considerations carry considerable weight in all quarters, and act as a strong restraining influence ' oft those desirous of a change at any - jcost and willing to take risks.

MONARO AMENITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 30 November 1918

? ' ? — * MONARO AMENITIES. Davy Hall dropped his cloak of Chris tian charity and humility in the Monaro tussle, and fought air in, at one place incautiously atating- that Bailey was no farmer, but only a pretender, pulling the genuine fanner's leg: Bailey challenged with an offer of £50, to be paid to local charities by the loser, offering to1 prove that Hall, as Attorney-General, had commandeered his (Bailey's) wheat, along- with others, during the first year of the war. Davy s»uibbed: tfiis enal lenge, and countered by a dirty hit, that if Bailey had £50 he had got it out of the A.W.TT., whereupon Bafley reminded D, R. HaH that he owed the A.W.TJ. some £120, granted- towards election ex penses when Hall, was in the Labor fold. Altogether, the Attorney-General didn't come out at the scrap with any medals on his chest or haloes round his brow. SPARTACUS.

TRUE STATESMANSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 30 November 1918

TRUE STATESMANSHIP. ?f The 'Sydney Morning Herald' sheds a column of inky tears over the Monaro disaster and endeavors to explain it. The trouble about this explanation, is tliat it p' requires still further explanations. For instance, we are told that 'amongst our ;. leaders are men who have displayed \, statesmenlike qualities and a devotion to j*' public interest,' but that, unfortunately, for some absolutely inexplicable reason, r 'large sections of public-spirited- citizens ?:J have little confidence in them.' This is Y- a serious reflection, either upon the ?--? statesman, or the citizen, for one would '? think that the natural proof of anybody -': .- being a statesman would be the public ..' spirited ? citizens had confidence in his / statesmanship; The alleged public t .spirited citizen who does not .appreciate: statesmanship and devotion, must have a. queer idea of what public spirit really j means, ana inversely the alleged states ? -man who is unable to inspire confidence...

WAR PRECAUTIONS ACT. PROPOSED EXTENSION. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 30 November 1918

WAR PRECAUTIONS ACT. PROPOSED EXTENSION. The Federal Government, for its own purposes, proposes the extension of the duration of the War Precautions Act|until six months after the conclusion of peace. It has brought in a bill with this end in view, and advances as pretext for the pro posed extension the interference with trade and commerce and the moratorium regulations that would follow any sudden cessation of the existing Act. The yarn is a thin one. Any possible injury that might occur to public or pri vate business through the expiration of the Act could be averted by a special measure. The Act, as it stands, gives the Govern ment powers far and away in excess of any that even war conditions -ever de manded. Under those powers regulations were passed and put into force that were an offence against the liberties of a self governing community. . These facts are now so commonly recog- , nised that probably no voice in Parliament outside the ranks of the Ministry and a! few of its m...

LIBERALS AND HOLMANITES. "S.M. HERALD" FEARS "A SCHISM." AND AGAIN SLANDERS LABOR. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 30 November 1918

LIBERALS AND HOLMANITES. 1 ? ♦ !_ 'S.M. HERALD' FEARS 'A SCHISMS 1 AND AGAIN SLANDERS LABOR. The alliance between the New South Wales Liberals and the Holmanltes 5s a mighty 'shaky one these days. And the reasons are not at all obscure. Holman. and his ex-Labor renegades hold the big bulk of the portfolios, and the Liberals, whose mouths water for the loaves and fishes, for the good things of Parliamentary existence, are anxious for their 'cut,' which they believe their numbers entitle them to. Many, if not all of them, fear greatly another appeal to the electors at the tail of Holman. They know that the country has at last sized Holman up, that the electors are only awaiting their op r portunity to give him the nastiest knock of his political life, and they have a wholesome dread of sharing the fate in store for them. The Monaro by-election is a sign they have all read with fluttering hearts, and, in their desperate desire to clutch at any straw, they would jettison Holman to morro...
