THE WAY TO ECONOMIC STABILITY. Property and Progress. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 1 August 1919
THE WAY TO ECONOMIC STABILITY. Property and Progress. (By a Democrat.) A famous economist has said that, down to the present time, there have been only three mainsprings of hu man action-compulsory, bribery, and instinct from personal gain.- He say?, further, that compulsion is the tcue basis of confiscation and slave labour. Of the potency of bribery, we have plentiful proofs. The Balsheviks could not have gained office, nor could they continue in power, without -th« exer cise of both compulsion and bribery -compulsion against those who had. bribery of those who had not. There is bitter irony in the fact that out of this wholesale confiscation, involving thrifti' workers as well as the wealthy comes the fund that is being; used by Lenin in his attempt to Bolshevize the world, including Australia. Thuf, money robbed from the ibest types of Russian worker is being utilized to set going the same systeni of theft to be emploj'ed against the Australian workers who possess anything above...

I "Mother Machree,'' the charming J comedy-drama, which introduced Penis Kehoe and his popular com pany to Peterborough on Monday night last, drew the biggest audience for a plav of its kind for many years, the Town Hall being packed to the doors.

"Some Day," and "Mother Machree," are delightful in terludes in the story. liliss Nellie Calvin as Moira, Miss Frances Kayher as the English girl, Mrs. Ward Lyons as Mother Machree. Mr. Richard Bel Jairs as the Earl, Mr. Lester Carey as Fergus Stone, and Mr. Frank Culle nane as Father Con. appeared in their original ...
