The society was favoured with prefect weather and the delightfully situated grounds were visited by fully a thousand people.

A number of very fine vegetables were shown, and fruit—both citrus and dried was fairly well represented. There-was good compet tion in the! navel orange class an-i Mr. Boss's! comprehe...

THE VOICE OF THE COUNTRY. THE REDISTRIBUTION SCHEME. " EVEN WORSE THAN WAS ANTICIPATED." [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer and Australian River Record — 26 September 1913
THE VOICE OF THE COUNTRY. THE REDISTRIBUTION SCHEME. " EVEN WORSE THAN WAS ANTICIPATED.'* The reaietribntioa scheme of 'the Government is even worse than was anticipated. That a Ministry belong ing to a party pledged to the electors to adopt single electorates or effec tive voting should seek to pass something entirely different is indeed a surprise, and it will be impossible to justify itself if it is to be judged by . ordinary standards of political ethics. Mr. Cook, the Prime Minister, told the Gawler electors that he was in favor of one vote, one value. He jaleo declared himself a ^supporacr oi the principle of equality of citizen ship. There is, therefore, a. great palf between the opinions of that gentleman and those of the . South Australian Government. How effec tive voting with its peace-making in fluence could'be passed over for a scheme so unjust and embittering as the >one now submitted :s beyond comprehension. Under the scheme proposed a large proportion of South Aus...
