Talking of strikes, it is,pretty evi dent that the number of them which loos place throughout' the Common wealth during the Fisher Ministry'^ terra of office had something to do witn its defeat at the polls. A. State general election is not far off, and if the "strike habit' continues to de velop in Victoria as it is giving promise of doing, it will not augment the chances of Mr Elmslie . and hiB merry men supplanting the Watt ad ministration. Not thaft I think they have a ghost of a show of doing so in any case-unlc.ss the Premier forgets the lessons of the immediate oast-but that is only my opinion, and fortune's wheel takes strange turns when men an: playing the gam<j of politics.
