Who are We to Dictate? [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 19 May 1939
Who are We to Dictate? :At a recent meeting we heard a citizen exclaim:. "Who are we to dictate to the Government?" ? Whilst we do not doubt the sincerity of the persbn: makirg the exclamation, evidently in his anxiety to uphold the governmental system he overlooked the meaning of true democracy. Democracy is defined as "Government by popular representation-a form of Government in which the supreme power is retained by the people, but is indirectly exercised through a system of representation and dele gated authority periodically renewed." In other words, the parliamen tarian is expected to respond to the wishes of the people, and not act contrary to those wishes. There is nothing offensive in notifying the Government of the day of the desires of the people-it is democracy. If sufficient 'pressure is put on a Government which indicates tRiat a majority desire a change of policy, then the Government must comply. If it does not, democracy passes and dictatorship reigns. The people. of...

LET'S WRITE A LETTER oOo CR. R. F. MILES, Shire of Frankston and Hastings. - Dear Cr. Miles.-Might we/congratulate you on your attitude regarding the unemployed. You are.a member of a council which, along with every other municipal :body in the State, 'has employed men for years at a rate far below the standard fixed by our Arbitration Courts. We do riot blame the. councils for this; we blame the State, which has put the onus on you of administering sustenance... In an endeavor to give the men the higher rate, council wlorks have been carried out under this pernicious system. And, of course, we are not blind to the fact that many councils have taken advantage of the system to carry out exten sive public works. We read your speech delivered at the Frankston council onr April 14, and we listened to your address at a meeting of the unemployed of the City of Mordialloc on May 3. The opinion we formed was that your better. feelings had revolted against a system which degrades a nation, a...

Local Fishermen Harassed "Standard" Directs Spotlight on a Mismanaged Industry [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 19 May 1939
Local Fishermen Harassed oOo "Standard" Directs Spotlight on a Mismanaged Industry Local bay fishermen claim that for many months they have been harassed by inspectors in the employ of the- FIsheries- and Game De-. partment. At the department the; allegatio n was pooh-poohed and dismissed as "u'tterly fantastic." Not, however, until we had asked several import ant questions. The trouble appears to be not en tirely with the inspectors, but with the law and the department, which seemingly allows itself to be dictated to by a fisherman's association form ed for the purpose of restricting sup plies of fish, and keeping prices high. Recently local 'fishermen paid their hard-earned money and joined the as sociation. .-Soon, after this, . through an unfortunate coincidence, the Gov ernment brought in a law' prohibiting long line fishing, but still allowing long net fishing, which to the uniniti ated appears to be disastrous to the fishing industry in general since it destroys spawning fish...
