"The Cabinet Trick." (To the Editor of the Portland Guardian.) [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 5 September 1876

"The Cabinet Trick." (7o the Editor of the I'ortland Guardian.) San,-Cert-dn brothers are in Melbourne with a mysterious apparatus, confounding savans, and even charming the Jupiter 7oenanx of the Southern press. If report i? correct, more than ten years ago the trick was laid bare, and the frightened confreres escaped by a back door from an enraged audienc tat lemalshed the cabinet to pleces md exposed the secret spring. Is the farce to be repeated here as a clever bit of acting, or is the dissecting knife to be applied to 1his and similar hollow peritrmaoces? FAX. September 1, 1876.

Fnom our tolegram it will be seen that the new Electora Bill has passed the second reading i~thout a division. The Government refused to leave the work to a select conmittee, as sug gested by Sir CrlntcsDuFrY, and the Premier, so we are ilformed, told the Assembly that a dvision on. til question would be regarded as a vote of want of confidence. This threat it appears is enough to reduce the most unruly members to older. The dread of a dissolution boefre the statutory time acts as a charm on the most re fractory, and Sir JAMes McCor.Looni has the existing Assembly so well drilled that he has only to hold up the bogy of a dissolution so as to scare members into quiescence.
