"THE OTHER SIDE OF THE QUESTION." [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 20 July 1895
' THE OTHER SIDE OF THE QUESTION/' Mv. R Crawford (Rooty Hill) writes to the editor of the Daily Telegraph per favour of the CcuBEBiiAxo Fhee Prebs '. — ' I trust to your sense of fairness to allow me, as an old Colonist, to express through the columns of your widely spread journal, the view, in direct opposition to your own, that the success of the Hon. G. H. Reid at the Polls on the 24th in6t., would be fatal to the best interests of this country. He is simply furthering the work of Dociausts, wmcn aims at tne destruction oi property ; the subversion of the existing order of society; the ruin in fact of everybody. I have not time to enlarge on the subject, but permit me to quote from your issue of March 25, 1895. On page 2 of that issue under the bead of ' The Labor problem, and Socialism ' we read of an interview with Sir Henry Wrixon at Melbourne. ' It iB said there is a universal cry that the State should interpose by Legis lation and cure the wrongs of life. The Socialists* id...
MR G. McCREDIE. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 20 July 1895
ME G. McCREDIE. A fine lead is 'given to the political rank nnd file by that straight-goer of Guildford -Mr. G. McCredie). He is nupporttag Mi. %$majles, his old opponent of twelve months simply because he is in favour of the ^preteutiGovernment. All who know how far ' Mr. tL McCredie is above the average, old time odHtical man in moral crit will under stand how genuine is bis loynJty to principle, when he takes the chair at Mr. Smailes* meet ing at Linnwood Hall. It is to be hoped that the thousands of electors in this part of the county will profit by examples of the kind, more eloquent, far, than letters, speeches, promises, or columns of ' explanations of in consistencies.'

MB MICHAEL DAVITT, AS A LAND-TAXES, FREETRADER, AND DEMOCRAT. (Reproduced through the cuartuy of our con temporary, 11 The Daily Telcrjraph.' ) THE GREAT IRISH REFORMER ON THE LA.ND QUESTION. Speaking at Melbourne on 8th June, 'in acknowledgment of the presentation of an illuminated address in recognition of his * labours on bebalf of the land reform move ment, Mr. Davitt said ; ' It was not a fact that all taxation was to be levied on the agriciltnral industry, whilst the capitalist manufacturer and others were to bo allowed to go scot free. The reverse of that impression was what he believed waB meant by the Radical land reform movement. In $he old country that movement aimed at taking off all burdens from agricultural industry, and re moving taxes from land improved by culti vation. sothatlabourmightbeappliedto the soil in the fullest manner possible.

The Struggle in Parramatta. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 23 July 1895
The Struggle in Parramatta. I The greatest interest centres in the7 fight in Parramatta. Two redoubtable' opponents face each other here ; and the two men represent two opposite political spheres, and two opposite per sonaunes. mere is no room tor con fusion—there can be no obscuring of the issue. Both are known to every elector. Neither would lay claim to be considered perfect ; that both are men liable to ordinary mistake and error goes without saying. The ques tion with each elector to-morrow should be, not — could I wish for a better repre sentative than either ? ; but — which of the two men now before me should I pre fer to the other 1 We can understand violent oppositionists declaring that they will never be a party to sending in a supporter of this or that policv. But some of those very men are now sup porting a man whom — with this very phrase in their mouths — they opposed a few years ago. If a Protectionist can see his way to vote for a Freetrader— if a man of high-souled ...
TAXATION OP LAND VALUES. TO THE EDITOR, [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 23 July 1895
TAXATION OF LAND VALUES. TO THE EDITOR, . Sir,— I would like to ask those who are afraid of a land tax, how they will prevent land-owners reaping the finanoial benefit of every effort on the part of the oommunlty. If we start a factory, land goes up all round, and the operatives have to pay hign rents. If we spend money on tbe unemployed, land-owners in the neighbourhood find their land lnoreaMd , in value. If people raise the oharaoter of a neighbourhood, the land goes np In value, and rents rise, so that only the land. owner finan cially benefits In the long ran, How oan anyone objeot to the individual occupier being secured the full value which he creates, ana the community the full value, whioh its presence and activities attaob to land ? What law of justioe does this violate ? If then justtoe) .demands devoting the whole of the community-created increment of land to public purposes, how can a tax of a penny in , the £ be unjust to land -owners ? j UNIT. |

The Premier's Visit to Parramatta. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 23 July 1895
The Premier's Visit to Parramatta. The intimation that the Premier was to speak from the balcony of Tattersall's j Hotel, Parramatta, on Saturday even- i ing, in aid of the candidature of Mr. I Dowell O'Reillv. made ' the corner.' I for the time being, the most important of all district places for miles around. ! The hour was set down as 8 p.m. At 1 7.15 the crowd commenced to gather, and at 7.80, ' from the furthest wards ' all sorts and conditions of men, and even women, were hurriedly converging on the historic intersection dedi cated to hustings oratory since the earliest days. By 7.45 p.m. the crowd had grown from hundreds to thousands. At 8 o'clock the four avenues commanded from the corner were blocked, a hundred yards and more down each wav : then the rustle of thousands of moving feet — the dull hum of a waiting multitude — the upturning of hundreds of faces beneath the street lamp opposjte, and of yet other and other hundreds uiore dimly lighted to right and left — the fee...

The Issue— ' Freedom ! ' Fob tbe first time in New South Wales — at. 'least within the recollection of the majority of our electors — an appeal has .''been made to the constituencies on one issue, and one issue alone. That 18 a fafet which deserves the most care ?
