THE COMING STRUGGLE. IMPORTANCE OF ORGANISATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 12 February 1914
THE COMING STRUGGLE. tl IMPORTANCE OF ORGANISATION. tl There are many Liberals who fail to realise the importance of organis- w ation. Labor is always organised; there are more than four hundred thou- na sand adult unionists in the Common- tl wcalth, and the vast majority, practic ally the whole, of the unions are poli tiral bodies. Liberal organisation is difficult. The m reason is simple. Liberalism Stan ls for the freedom of the individual. b There is no particular class interest uhich binds Liberals together as trade unionists are united by a desire to raise their own wages. The support ers of the Liberal party are drawn from all classes, to preserve the highest t traditions of the British race. At the present moment this question P of organisation is of more than ordin ary importance. Tnere is little doubt a that the double dissolution is compara tivelv near. Labor's victory in New South Wales has inspired it wich the fighting spirit. A few months, even a few weeks back it fear...

ATHLETIC SPORTS FAILURES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 12 February 1914
,AILETIC SPORTS FAILURES. Rlecent attempts by American sports promoters to exploit Australian sport loving people cannot be said to have been great successes. The baseballers visit utterly failed in the object aimed at, viz., the introduction of the game as a rival to cricket. The promoter, n l'olish Jew, who, with the Germans. irisilnen and Indians, who made :p the bulk of the team, were hailed by Prinm Minister Cook as Anglo-Saxons. pluckily spent a lot of money on the visit, but nevertheless the thing spelt failutre. We have just now finished an International Sports Carnival, that has been an even worse failure. Two days on the Friendly Societies' Ground proved a financial frost, and this was followed by a couple of Saturdays ii, the Melbourne Cricket Ground, where it was thought the previous losses woult be returned. Results were, however. still poorer, and I am afraid the Amnla teur Athletie Association that spared neither titme, money nor personal effort to make the thing a su...

OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. WORLD'S WHEAT CROP. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 12 February 1914
OUP ,MEOURNE jLETTER. WORLD'S WHEAT CROP. The official estimate of the world's ,heat crop is something under 4000 million bushels, and of this amount Australsia produces just one-fortieth, ind yet we, or some of us, are foolish4 enough to talk occasionally as if we acre one of the principal food supply ing countries of the world. That we could rank very:much higher in this great field of production goes without s'ing, since only an infinitesimal por tion of our food producing potentiali ties are being exploited. The same uineg, however, holds good as regards other countries. Canada, with barely a tenth of its arable land in cultivation., is producing even now four times as much wheat as we are, and so ranks rcspectably as a food caterer, since she supplies one tenth of the world's wheat supply. Even Canaua, however, has far behind such countries as India, aond Russia and the argentine, while unless Australia is careful South Africa will shortly be a formidable competi tor in this sp...
