FEDERAL PREMIER SHIP. MR. BARTON'S RECORD. [Newspaper Article] — People — 29 December 1900
FEDERAL PREMIER. SHIP. MR. BARTON'S RECORD | ? THE people of New South Wales had little reason to feel proud tof the fact that Sir William Lyne had been ' sent for ' to form the first Federal Govern ment. They have still less reason to congratulate themselves on. the fact that Sir William Lyntf has. been 'induced' to relinquish the job in favor of Mr. Edmund Barton. ? : ? ? ? Apart altogether fr^m the shameful scramble that has just taken place on the steps of the temple,' as the Daily Telegraph puts it, is this so. That scramble for the emoluments of office will long be remembered with shame by every man and' every woman possessing the least regard for po litical decency and straightfor wardness. But, after all, the in cident was only .characteristic of the people concerned. As wje remarked last week, in capitalis tic politics there is neither clean liness, honesty, nor consistency. ? ? ? ? ? ? What then is the record of our ' first ' Federal Premier ? He managed to edge his way in...

AT HEADQUARTERS Comrade Thomson filled (ho platform on Sunday last, having for his subject ' Features of the Century.'- Du ing a somewhat lengthy add ess cur comrade touched briefly on many of the changes that have taken place airing the past centnry but which, pa*t1 through want of interest, and partly through interested suppiea sicn, anl also because they are taking place under the very noses of the public, are not recognised in their full importance. One feature of the century hai been the growth and influence of the platform sg'tator, who by reason of the fact that he deals wi'h mattes that fo* obviont reasons are never touched upon by the pres?, has had a tr emend, us influence in moulding public ' opinion and enlightening the community!

And better the fiercest fate of the martyr, : Than live like the coward and die like the slave. Gbraij) IIassbt.

AFTER THE BIG DRUNK. ? A ? THE COMING STRUGGLE. In such epaca as the daily press has spared from recording preparations for the great debauch are to be found the sign posts fur the coining struggle. Since the shackles of the Australian constitution was finally clinched in the British Parliament, professional politicians hive endeavored to conceal cne isaae to oe decided, but before 1 ho logic of material interests their efforts have counted for nought. The two wings of the capitalist army are ready for the fight, and while acknowledging divided interests, re cognise a mutual necessity to befool the people they despoil — the working class. As their material interests de mand, they are raising the cry of Freetrade and Protection ; and al ready the fatuous efforts of the small fry of professional politicians to nuke a cry of ' The Constitution in danger,' have ended in nothing. No fight can be. fought out solely on false issues. However important certain alterations of the constitution...

Bora of them strode on sturdily until they had left the last houses of the town behind them, and the noise of the streets had gradually died . away Then they turned to the right, into a narrow path, which led to the little village where they lived. Now their pace slackened.. The man seemed lost in thought, and with bent back and droop ing head, slowly dragged his weary steps. In his left hand he carried the tin can, which he had taken with him that morning, filled with cold coffee, to the factory. The boy had tied his to a cord and hung it round his neck, so that he could more easily gather the flowers which grew here and there along the hedge row. The man went on, without looking round, and the boy was lett behind. Then he ran on to overtake his father, arranging the scanty blossoms and long grass into a bunch. ' These are for mother. They are not so nice as those 1 used to pick going to school. I could spend the whole afternoon in the fields. ...
