TYRANNY OF CAUCUS "ROT MUST BE STOPPED" To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 25 February 1931
TYRANNY OF CAUCUS "ROT MUST BE STOPPED" To the Editor Sir-For years past organisations have been forming in Australia for the purpose of undermining the Constitu- tion of the Commonwealth, and estab- lishing a soviet. Their propaganda has advanced to such an extent that many labor unions have become per meated with their doctrines, and many upholders of their teachings have been elected to Parliament. WeTas citizens fj* in the lamentable position of see ing the Prune Minister of the Com monwealth and the Premier of South Australia pleading at the bar of a tri bunal outside the Constitution. Caucus has eclipsed Parliament and become tne ruling body The! city of Chicago, UJSJL, has reached I the stage when a powerful labor union speaks for die master gangster, and suggests to the Chief Justice of the Criminal Court terms of compromise with him. But Australian unions have outshone the effrontervoT Chicago's unions by taking the reins from Parliament, and dictating what legislation Cabi...

POINTS FROM LETTERS Calendar and the Sabbath ospect:—As out- g article on Mon- hange of the calen- From T.A. Brown Prospect:- As out- lined in your laeding article on Mon- day, the proposed change of the calen- dar with suitable education, probably will be a workable scheme in the secular life of the nations. Many are not yet satisfied that the present system has been a failure. Still, in civil life, where inherent rights are not affected, a better scheme should always prevail. Any alteration in the established order of the days of the week, however, will "cut the ground from under the feet" of the religious community. The term "Sabbath" is a Bible word, and that Book defines it as one particular day of the seven only. All Protestan; writers on behalf of first day sacredness. agree that its institutional authority is based on the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Many of them openly dissociate k from the Fourth Commandment, and the reasons stated therein. The identi fication of this cer...
PARTY GOVERNMENT "SEESAW AND OBSTRUCTION" To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 25 February 1931
PARTY GOVERNMENT "SEESAW AND OBSTRUCTION" To the Editor I am, sir, &c., T. LANDER, Medindie. Sir—I think that Mr. W.G. Duncan, M.L.C., is mistaken in saying that par- ties make for stabilisation—that is, if by stabilisation he means steadiness of Government. Does Mr. Duncan call an electoral system stable, which puts one party into power for three years to be thrown out by the swing of the pendulum, and a directly opposing party put in to undo the work the pre vious Government may have done? Is not our two-party system better il- ] lustrated by the see-saw, alternately one up and the other down, and it does not seem to matter much which one is elevated! The only electoral system which can produce a stable Government is proportional representation. In this system the electors select their candi date and vote for him, making further choice by the transfer of the vote, only to be used if necessary. The candidate if elected is responsible directly to his electors for the work he...

(ADVERTISEMENT] "CURING THE SICK" [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 25 February 1931
(ADVERTISEMENT] "CURING THE SICK" A few days ago a paragraph appeared in the "Advertiser" referring to the wonderful cures effected by Mr. M. Allum, of Sturt-street, Adelaide. Mr. Allum has only been resident in Adelaide for the last 14 months, and during that time has healed about 5,000 people, who had been unsuccessfully treated by our doctors. Mr. Ailum's powers of healing, which are nothing short of miraculous, have aroused widespread interest, and the question Is being asked, "What is wrong with the medical profession?" It is perfectly evident that Mr. Allum possesses knowledge in healing that is unknown to our doctors Why, there fore, does not the British Medical Asso ciation, or whatever authority Is re sponsible, move in the direction of in cluding the form of medicinal treat ment practised by Mr. Allum in its training curriculum? A perusal of some of the thousands of individual statements signed in the presence of a justice of the peace, which Mr. Allum would be pleased to ...

"REHABILITATION" TRAVAIL CALL OF HUMANITY To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 25 February 1931
"REHABILITATION" TRAVAIL CALL OF HUMANITY To the Editor I am, sir, &c., W.A. LEWIS. Sir—The commercial and financial age is rapidly reaching a stage when humanitarian principles are imperilled, and Australian banking institutions are in a vortex, leading to economic disaster equally with the rest of the community. We have ignored the "law of supply and demand," and nature is taking her tolL Our Governments must now observe this law in all the details of its ramifi cations and delete absurd bonuses on protected industries, make our tariff restrictions scientific, restrict the baby bonus payments, reduce extravagant and mis-spent taxation, face the fact of the ever-increasing war pensions, definitely realise that wage restrictions and salary protection for favored offi cials must be abolished, and leave trade and commerce to those trained to its conduct. All businesses and primary producers that cannot exist under this law, scientifically adjusted, must go by the wall. In this...
SEARCH THINGS OUT "TO HELP OURSELVES" To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 25 February 1931
SEARCH THINGS OUT "TO HELP OURSELVES" To the Editor Sir—The spirit of "want to know" is on the move. We are alert to discover what Nature has in store, and to realise the value of applying her secrets to our use. A vast field for enquiry is opening, encouraging us to feel for a "yet more excellent way" of doing tilings for our benefit. But it does not suffice that the invaluable results of research be pigeon holed in the laboratory. To get full | value for them they should be diffused far and wide. To foster unity of pur pose, and co-ordination, each State throughout the Empire might send re sul's 10 a central bureau in Britain, our ? sheet- anchor. In this depository we would then have complete records of In- ? vestigations. This would create an at- ? mosphere of emulation. It would tend to knit all parts of the Empire together for one common objective—furtherance of knowledge of how things may be done for our advantage. ; This active delving into Nature's mysteries may reveal star...
AUSTRALIA'S CRISIS "GHASTLY INEFFICIENCY" TO the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 25 February 1931
AUSTRALIA'S CRISIS "GHASTLY INEFFICIENCY" TO the Editor I am Sir &c C.L. GRAY. Organiser, A.W.U., Port Pirie. Sir—There is only one concrete pro- posal—our politicians must go. They have had a fair trial, and have more than an proved their ghastly inefficiency. "Money for reproductive works" is the cry. Did anybody ever know of any work undertaken by politicians that did not cost 100 per cent, more than a pri vate company would have done the job for? Public works constructed in Australia are a bottomless pit to swallow money. If dishonest politicians repudiated every debt to-morrow it would not benefit the taxpayers one penny. The politicians would have smashed all the banks, savings banks, and insurance companies, and taken all the savings and half the incomes of most of the people. The figures thrown at us by politicians are mostly dis honest and misleading. One writer asks. Do we understand that Australian sugar produces £10.000,000 a year, and £6,000,000 of that goes to ...

PREFERENCE TO NONUNIONISTS Complaint By Painters' Union [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 25 February 1931
PREFERENCE TO NON UNIONISTS Complaint By Painters' Union Members of the Painters' Union com- plained at a meeting on. Monday night that, in the allocation of work through the State Labor Bureau, preference was being given to men who had not maintained their connection with the Painters' Onion .over those who havo been directly connected with toe union throughout the whole period of their unemployment.

It was also complained that a con siderable nmnrmf of painting work was being done by men who were not tradesmen, and that, although it might appear cheaper than that done by experienced workers, it would not prove as satisfactory in the preserva tfon of the wood and other work which was being painted.

ELECTORAL REFORM Labor Committee Preparing Report Planks of the policy of the State Gov- ernment are the abolition of the Legis- lative Council and the reduction of the number of members of the House of Assembly from 46 to 35, with singe electorates and the preferential system of voting. It had been also proposed that the State should be divided on the lines adopted for ttie House of Repre sentatives, for which there are seven divisions in this State, and the idea was to nave had five State members for each of these divisions. At a re cent conference of the Labor Party, however, the single-seat districts basis was adopted, and a measure is to be introduced to provide for this.
