REVISING THE ELECTORAL ROLLS! [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 7 February 1891

mmtm^wmsrmsfc -0n Tuesday last a deputation ironrthe Bris bane District Council, A.L.F., waited upon the Colonial Secretary re the wholesale rejection of workers' claims by the January Revision Courts, which were composed of capitalistic justices. The reason alleged in most cases for rejection was that the claimant had 'not stated the number of the allotment or nortion oh which he resided. '_ The deputation informed the Minis ter that according to^he North- BrisbanejCiP.S., who is registrar for several electorates, no per son could claim a vote for residence unless he had lived for six months at the same address. It was pointed out that men living in boarding houses seldom remained for six months in tine place, and that if the registrar's interpretation of the law were correct several hundred working men in the city would be kept off the roll.

The Charters Towers Labour people asked him to a public anti-immigration meeting but he hadn't time. He had time, though, to listen to chBmbagne-guzzling sycophants and to unwind himself to the elect who object to electoral re form, i When Griffith was at Charters Towers a deputation from an anti-immigration meeting waited on him.
