IRISH SCOTS. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 27 February 1914

IBISJI SCOTS. It ia to Ireland rather than to Scot land that we must look for tho first establishment ot the clan system, al though this is a fact that does not seem to bo known to tho general .vorld. There has, ieen no Walter Soott to write romantic novels to attract at tention to t-ho glories of tho Irish clan feuds and ambitions. But tho very name of Soots is Irish, and Ireland was Scotia, or iho land of tho Scots, and it was only another immigration of Celts from Ireland to Scotland that gave modern Scotland its name. The Scots from Ireland came there, driving before them through force of numbers, and no doubt also through the native oharm of tho Irish, or Erse, "the ten ants in possession," the poor Picts, or whom so little is now said or heard. The Picts of Alban, as the Irish or Scots called the country now known as Scotland, m*ro not so much conquer ed by warriors as absorbed and conver ted to Erse ways by missionaries like Columbia. —The Duke of Argyll, iji tiie "Windsor Ma...

The sub committee appointed for the purpose at the previous meetiug reported having sanvassed the district, with the result that the names of sixteen subscribers had been handed in ; there wero also a few who had not finally made up their minds.

The last issue of the " Worker," which is the most influential of all the Labor organs, contained little of any con sequence save repeated calls to arms. Again and again, on this page or that, it warned members of the Labor Party that they must be in their places ready to fight, determined to win. There is little doubt that the reply will be prompt; the Party has its first lin6, four hundred thousand adult unionists, who may be regarded as regulars, and behind them it has volunteers. Happily it is likely that solidarity will be secured in the Liberal camp. The three Liberal Leagues have united to select candi dates lor the six Senate seats which will be open when the double dis solution comes.
