MONDAY'S MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 1 February 1865
MONDAY'S MEETING. SIR,-It was with deep sorrow I witnessed the termination of the meeting convened at the Me chanics' Institute this afternoon, to protest against IIr Verdon's tariff. It was deplorable to witness the disgraceful conduct of MrWm. Clarke, of Buninyong. It would bo diliicult to imagine why he should en deavor to make himself so noisy on this subject, kuowing as most do, how indifferent he is as to how any tariff would affect the poor of the colony. It is merely for party purposes he declaims. Those who read your report will beat judge whether Mr Clarke's vulgar interruptions of Mr Jones' lucid and temperate speech, and his subsequent insulting remarks to Mr James Baker, were justified. It is notorious that certain protectionists canvassed the town this morn ing to persuade their fellows to pack tho meeting and frustrate the intentions of its conveners. As a con sumer, and neither an importer nor dealer in com modities of any description, I say emphatically the policy i...
