TOO LATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 11 August 1910
TTTTTT^T TOO LATE. HALF a dozen times in the history of New Zealand have attempts been made to establish a. Country Party that might revive the lost glories Qf Conserva tism; but the country didn't want a party, and didn't need a party, and the efforts faded away, into nothingness. The New souui.wa.ies jjiutJiajs are now out on the sarhetaek. A platform has been elabor ated with many beautiful planks, and the country is being 'assured that it is really a very nice, little platform, and one that a farmer might find much joy in supporting. John Smith looks, up. from his ploughing to examine the new bait that is being dangled before liim; but it does not at tract him. ?' If he is a., struggling- worker he knows of another platform that makes a 'much stronger appeal to him; and if he is a holder of big estates he sees in the programme, of the Country Party ?plank's that are as sail and wormwood tc hiSj fatted soul. -No, the new movement 'has come/'too late to save Liberalism from wreck ...

DRY FARMING AND LAND MONOPOLY. RECENTLY the Government, follow injr their usual rule of posing as Anti-Socialists and religiously practising Socialism; /'has been spending- some State money and the ' time of a lot of State experts in teaching the farmers something about dry farming. Logically all this sort. of thing should be left to glorious private enterprise, but the Wade Government don't bother about logic if there is a chance of catching' votes by pleasing the cockjr or anyone else;' and the most rabid 'anti-Socialistic farmer is always pleased to get anything for nothing from the State, i Therefore, he highly approves of the socialistic principle of spending the ? money of the State to educate and enrich j him; That, however, is by tie ;*-.

STRAIGHT AUSTRALIAN THE SECOND BALLOT. *Tf'»HE Wade Government is said to .??*- contemplate th.e introduction of the second ballot system. It is just the .kind of reform the Wade Government might be expected to father. Costly, cumbrous, | dilatory, ineffective-rthat about sums up | the second ballot system. Compared with the cheap, simple, speed y, and effective preferential system, as used by the P.LXi. and most of thtTTrade Unions, it is just such another ' reform;' as tearing, up Magna Charta. ' ' , # # # The Liberal Party is much troubled ty local splits and independent 'candidates. Wadeism is unpopular even within the ranks of the Liberal Party. The Liberal who has not Wade's support sometimes feels himself stronger be-: cause of his dissociation from the Chief Coercionist. In several seats, believed to ~be Liberal strongholds, it is feaired that Labor candidates may slip in on minority votes. Clearly, something must be done. # # * The elections are so ..hear - that re arrangem...
EDUCATION MATTERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 11 August 1910
EDUCATION MATTERS. EDUCATION is a subject of para mount interest to those who study *nd understand the evolutionary .develop ment of the Labor movment. The con tinuous intelligent growth of Laborism depends upon the increased, knowledge of the rising1 eeneration. Indeed, the greatest danger to Labor progress is the great mass of people -who are indifferent and hopeless because of their illiteracy -and Ignorance. Once let a man or woman Intelligently conceive the hope that the Labor movement gives to humanity and fiiBcontent with existing economic ar rangements 'will soon grow. And, of course, discontent plus knowledge, is the certain way to human advancement. Therefore,' it is because education gives knowledge, that the State school, system Is of such vital impoi't to the democracy. if this is not fully recognised, it will be found that the schools will be used more and more by our capitalistic enemies as a means of making the children efficient profit machines instead of enlightene...

It . is chiefly because the Labor majority, has decided to mould legisla- - tion by secret caucus conference rather - -than by open discussion on the floor .of the House t^hat the Opposition will have to undertake the duty of politi cal education, by means of public de bate, with more earnestness than Op positions-have displayed in the past. . — Melbourne 'Argus.'
