The "Times" and Home Rule. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Recorder — 25 May 1887

The 'Times' and Home Riil& The ' Times' says thfi London corre-' opondent of ihe ' Sydney Mail' seems literally to' have gone mad over the question of Irish Home Rule; Viewed in an impartial manner, its behaviour is a great mistake: The ' Thundefer' used to be everybody's paper: If to day the Conservatives thought an article a leetle too Radical, to-morrow the Liberals would think one a trifle too Tory. Now, there ia no such criticism possiblo. Were the 'Times' a distinct Conservative journal— pos- sessed, edited, and written by Conserva tives — it would not be more rabidly Tory. It is now publishing a series of articles, called ?' Parnellism and Crime/' of which tlie title' is . sufficiently' de scriptive. (| It tries to justify it by'r ex tracts from speeches made by the Irish party, and, in one case at least/ ihe the latter have convinced the' ' Times' of a crime — the' high criminality j6f suggestio falsi and suppressio veri.
