THE FEDERAL ARENA. Melbourne, Jan. 5. FRANK CRITICISM. [Newspaper Article] — Warrnambool Standard — 8 January 1914
THE :FEDERAL 'ARENA. Melbourne. Jan. 5. S FRANK CRITICISM. The volitical ouitlook' has changed completely. A little while back Libe rals had the null and isero anxious for a fieht. Now the Cook-Irvine com bination -has thrown all the chances away and stands to' be' hopelessly beaten. The result of the New South Wales elections was a' shock. and the Benambra by-election in Victoria is as bad. Last time a Liberal candidate was returned with a four figure ma iority-this time the Liberal won with a Door four hundred. Taking that as representative. as it probably is, it means utter rout when the Federal elections come on next. To lose seven hundred votes in one poor little State constituency is to have lost every neu tral who lives in it. The thing is'not surnrisine. Mfr. Irvine and the men behind him ran the policy of the Min istr-, and nothing so stupid has been done since Disraeli educated the con servative Party at- home.
