The Democratic League. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 10 March 1900

Tlte Democratic League. Thus Barrier Truth : — ' As we pointed out previously, in reference to the platform of the Democratic League, we see no reason for the multiplication of sects in the political world, though it seems as inevitable as it doea in the relicious world. By this dividing and subdivid ing of the forces of democracy we get too many platforms, too many programmes, too many leaders. The result is friction and disunion, and the anti-demooratio party frequently scoreB in consequence. Still we have to de.il with the world as it is and not with an ideal world. We must make the best of things aa they are, and try to find as much in common as possible for conflicting parties, to gain, as it were, rallying points for the common good. The platform of the league is not too large considering the immensity of the issues to bo dealt with, and it is honestly demooratio right through. Some of its planks do not really admit of argument, eo self evident from the democratic standpoint i...

Corn Cobs. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 10 March 1900

Corn Cobs. Forrester has only once before started a horse for the Newmarket Handicap. In Atlanta, Georgia, they en deavour to attract men to church by the use of lady ushers. Owing to the war, the wooden leg and splint industry is booming in Great Britain. Also lint is in demand. When Queen Yictorix's chooulate reached the soldiers at the front it had melted and so they poured it into boiling water and drank her health. Wanted, volunteers to fight the bush-fires in 'Victoria. No pay, no glory, no medals, no newspaper paragraphs, no send-offs — no volun teers. A seaman in the port of New castle firing at a rat shot his mate in the hand. The bubonio plague scare. Is the bubonic plague likely to kill any non- unionists ? It is said to be slaying all the rats. They sling them off the wharves anyhow. Lord Ampthill, son of Lard Odo Russell, secretary to Chamberlain and brother-in-law to Lord Beau champ, is 31 years of age and the prospective 'Victorian governor. Lieutenant Pearson, son of...

Cyclorama — Jerusalem & Illusions. Bondi & Coogee Aquaria— Concerts At the Lyceum that finely-staged play Defender of the Faith is diffi cult to describe Professing to be a historical and romantic melo drama of the Tudor period, Charles Darrell, its author, attempts to give it the tone of that age by clothing it with pompous, formal, and stilted language, which would stand much cutting down, but lapses con tinually into the dialogue of the modern melodrama and indeed into the slang of our own day. Wit I ness such phiases aa ' a jolly honey moon ', I bet', and 'kick up a row '.

Gore and Glory. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 10 March 1900

Gore and Glory. Colonel Roberts was born in In dia. His mother was Irish. Australians say the Life Guards' horses are the best they've ever seen. It will never been known until the last trump be blown how many John See killed on his own daring the campaign. Talked to death. It oosts £10,000,000 to maintain 50,000 troops in the field for three months without firing a shot. And the powder bill is heavy. Singleton people objeot strongly to have been saddled with a holi day on the Bushies' Contingent Day. Those who went to Sydney would have gone in any case. Oronje's last stand and capture were the events of the South Afrioan war. Nothing more des perate and determined is likely to occur. A great sensation. Had Cronje known how quickly he would be followed, no doubt he would have remained behind his entrenchments. He would have held out longer there. Should tho Third Contingent, , Britain's Last Hope, go to the front, as is almost certain, they will probably prove the best Aus tralasian...

Political Patter. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 10 March 1900

Political Patter. The proposed testimonial to ' Toby ' Barton was an ignominious failure — like his political career. Wise has not gained many friends by his publication of the confidential Transvaal minutes made by ex Premier Reid. He must have been blinded altogether by hate when he could not perceive that they did not bear the interpretation he placed on them# The Attorney-General is recom mended in many quarters now to change his name to Other- Wise. His cognomen wants considerable qualification. Premier Lyne represents the Hume in Parliament ; ex-premier Raid represents Humor there. This isn't quite our own, so don't shoot. As J. Roberts is resigning from the tramway service, Judge Rogers mildly observes that his past con duct has been indiscreet ; that and nothing more. Phew ! A Sydney parliamentary party is spending a week in Melbourne. Its days will be devoted to bowls, crioket, rifle-shooting, tennis, and picnics. Its nights given doubtless to banquets and balls — also bawl...

A Progressive Country [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 10 March 1900

A Progressive Country Ten years of advanced legislation in New Zealand have liumanised its laws and, contraiy to the prog nostications of conservatism, have increased its prosperity. There the workers, male and fe-rale, are on a political equality with all other citizens and this has tended towards ^ pure, economical, and stable govern ment. In fact, no position is closed to the people — equality of opportunity is nearly attained. Laws provide for the payment of wages, compensation in case of aocidents, for the settlement of in dustrial disputes, and the old age of the worn-out toiler is secured from utter want and destitution The labor laws and the principle of 1 preference to Unionists ' prevent sweating. Women may not work o' nights nor more than forty-five hours a week. The Compulsory Arbitration Act, Factories Act, Em' ployers Liability Act, and Old-Age Pension Act are models of progres sive legislation which we would do well to follow. Ten years ago, when the late John Ballanc...

There is no doubt of the essential nobility of that man who pours into life the honest vigor of his toil over those who compose the feather foam of fashion, who consider the insignia of honour to consist of wealth and indolence, and who, ignoring the family history, paint coats-of-armsto cover up the leather aprons of their grandfathers.— Chopin. Failure after long porse verance is much grander than never to have had a striving good enough to be called a failure.— George Eliot. $

A Progressive Life Assurance Company. THE YEAR'S WORK OF THE CITIZENS' LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 17 March 1900

A Progressive Life Assurance Company. ? I THE YEAR'S WORK OP THE . CITIZENS' LIFE. Tho public of New South Wales linve long come to look with interest on the annual reports of our principal life assurance societies. None attracts more attention than that of the Citizens' Life Assurance Company, ond it must bo said that the report just issued has aroused more than the ordinary interest. The Citizens' Life has come to be recog nised as a thoroughly Australian citizen affair, conducted vigorously yet with every caution and winning each year a greater foothold among the community. Perhaps the interest aroused in the Citizens' Life is ascribed to the fact that many held the system of assurance adopted by the Company to bo too liberal and that its new departure in industrial assurance would not work out satisfactorily in a young community like ours. Very- fortunately, however, ex perience has shown th&t tho liberal policy pursued by the Company has been a thoroughly safe and sound...

THE VOICE OF CONQUEST. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 17 March 1900

THE VOICE OF CONQUEST. I hew my pathway with the Sword, Slay Peace and say I throttled Crime, Ring round with flame the Savage Horde, Weave crimson in the robe of Time. I search for gold and gleaming gem, Seize fairest islands of the sea, Find simple folk and fling to them From cannon mouth — Humanity. I seek the realm where dullards dwell, I make each brutish weakling feel Tho good there is in shriek of shell, The blessings wrought by fire and steel. With sabre stroke and thrust of lance, I shake the regions of Content, And teach the hosts of Ignorance The sweetness of Enlightenment. What matter if Death's pride be War, Or Weakness be tho slave of Might ? Is Progress noc a conqueror — And Power another name for Right ? What matter if I crush the free, Or if ten million men be slain ? Am I not lord of Destiny — The Anglo-Saxon god of Gain ? — Herbert Bashford. The distinguished Chinese, Kung Yew Wei, M.A., who with his suite is coming to Australia, is a man of world-wide note, and a...

Poems of Peace. CHRISTIAN WARS. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 17 March 1900

Poems of Peace. CHRISTIAN WARS. The army of the Christian Queen Lies ready and in act to spring, Just like some lean, malignant thing, That crouches when its prey is seen. One heart, one purpose, and one will, Whose bristling bayonets corus Like teeth unlipped by ashen bate, While the tense silence whispers 'Kill!' The Maxims, charged with voluble Fierce rage that aches to sputter death, Are there ; the cannon hold their breath, Foul with the sulphurous threats of hell. And thus the gentle chaplains pray : ' Lord God, on Whom our hopes we stay ; 0 Thou Who mad'st of old the sea Before Thy chosen foils to flee ; By Whose command the waves were tossed O'er Pharoah's mad pursuing host ; Lord God of Pisgah's vantage height, Who gavest youth to Moses' sight, What time his hungry vision swept The Promised Land, by aliens kept ; 0 Thou Whose fiery breath laid low The accursed walls of Jericho ; Great God of battles, righteous Lord, Let loose the lightnings of Thy sword — Be with Thy people...
