THE DOUBLE DISSOLUTION. Party Tactics. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 26 February 1914
THE DOUBLE DISSOLUTION. That there will be a double dissolution within a few months is now practically certain. The Senate with its over wholming.Labor majority can fling the Bills of Ministers back in their faces, with overy expression of contempt. Whilst Labor is thoroughly organ ised and has definite aims, the Liberal Party always, and inevitably, tends to slackness. Its numembers are drawn from all sections of the community, who are agreed on the one basii principle that the individual should br fTee, that there shall not be a new serf dom with the Trades Union "Boss" as the modern slave driver. But in order to ormanise aucceasftlly it is necessary to gos little further. Thre Liber? pro gramme appeals to the younger nmon, and it is they who count. That pro gramme has to be scattered broad cast, and the Primr Minister, who is us earnest in the mitter as the young eat ot those behind him, ihas to be sup ported in scattering it. Absolutely nothing can be done with out organisation....

PAKE.;:; U.I UPPERl -A meetingofthe Progress Associa ht on was held in the Mechanics' Institute on Saturday evening. Mr Warren, vice-president, occupied the chair. After the minutes of the previous meeting ha i ,?en read and confirmed, Mr Wisewould spoke upon the advantages of having a debating society, and what rules should govern such a society. It was decided that the next meeting of the association should take the form of impromptu speeches by members present. This should prove very enjoyable and instructive. Fires have been raging all around the township, doing a great deal of damage in many cases. Taylor Bros. lost two fine atacks of hay, and the homestead narrowly escaped destruc tion. Mr Warren's potatoand maize crops were damaged considerably by the heat, and most of the settlers have fences to repair. Many orchards suffered through the loss of trees.

If was the most brilliant hour of her life when Louis XIV;.sent her to Eng land as his ambassador to arrange the alliance. Sho was never forgiven for this by the Duke, her husband, and when she returned to France on June 24, 1670. not a single member of his family paidl her the slightest attention. The Duchess was deeply chagrined. and she felt the affair much more deep ly when her husband surprised her at Versailles when site was talking poll tics with the King, and made a violent scene. She entered tile Queen's apart lelnts after that incident, and It is re carded that Mille. de Montlpensier, who saw her, observed that she "thought she had seen a dead woman walking abo...
