Wolfeb schnapps a accept nothing but the ocl final Ai Noall Tot Tuu Oiw we injurious. A. Quot Charles Dickens in his own inimitable style introduces to his readers the stately baronet whose first impression that the country was going to ruin was derived from the failure of an attempt to get a la de a Nephew foisted into a civil service Billet a a with plenty of Money and nothing to the old gentleman a judgment was further confirmed by a subsequent failure to get the name of a faded female relative an elderly Yonne lady of Rouge and necklace celebrity placed on the pension list. The keen sarcasm of England a great humorous writer might have been supposed to depict a purely imaginary Case if modern history did not furnish us with so Many living examples the most cursory Reader of Dickens is aware that the novelists powerful sketches have living flesh and blood illustrations. No theme has supplied the Radical papers with More material for exhaust less invective than the anomalies that still exist in connection with the English system of pensions of late years the adoption of a plan of commutation backed up by the measures of the libera party has caused a sweeping away of Many abuses. Names have disappeared from the pension list whose very continuance there served As an irritant to popular feeling. When within the last few years radicals could Point to such items As annual sums paid to a daughter of an adopted child of lord Nelson we fail to wonder at the hostility displayed towards the pension system by the great mass of British taxpayers. A it would seem almost impossible that the worst features of the pension system could Ever be revived in a democratic Community. We Are not however without evidences from time to time that in some quarters the old spirit Silil exists and is Only restrained by the Force of popular opinion. The vote of 2,000 for the daughters of a deceased Cabinet minister daring the Atkinson administration shows an acknowledgement on the part of some of out legislators of the principle that sums of Money May equitably be voted under the Shadow of a parliamentary Sanction to the relatives of deceased statesmen who have been handsomely paid during their tenure of office. The new South Wales parliament has just been occupied with the discussion of a pension Case which though its provisions were meant to be limited to the lifetime of the recipient yet shows a deliberate attempt to override the civil service act of that Colony by which every civil servant of whatever Grade is entitled to a certain pension on retiring from the service. The name of no Public servant in that Colony is More familiar to the Public than that of or Whitton the late Engineer in chief for railways. For the Long period of thirty four years or Whitton has been engaged in the pub Lic service. Whatever his services have been and As to their value there is great difference of opinion in new South Wales he has been handsomely rewarded. During a period extending Over several years he has drawn the handsome sum of i Soo per annul or Whitton is at present in receipt of an annual pension of jc67s this sum he is entitled to by Law. The government however actuated by motives in which feelings of private Friendship seem to predominate have lately startled both parliament and country by a proposal to raise or Whitton a pension to the amount of his annual income before retirement�?�1,800 a year. The arguments put Forward for this piece of official favouritism constitute a sort of special pleading which however it May commend itself to the senatorial mind is hardly Likely to carry much weight outside the Halls of legislature. The minister for works who took up the cudgels on behalf of his Friend said that or Whitton s services to the country were almost unique. The opponents of the measure were quite prepared to assent to this although not exactly in the Way the Hon. Member intended. They could not forget that although or Whitton had been looked upon by his admirers As a sort of engineering god a Good Many of his works were left As a costly legacy to the taxpayers. The famous Zig Zag line alone ran the Colony into hundreds and thousands of unnecessary expense at first Cost and is a perpetual Burden upon the maintenance Branch. The minister for works however let details of a practical kind severely alone and dealt chiefly with sentimental considerations. He pathetically informed the House that or Whitten was in his 71st year and that in the Ordinary course of nature lie could not be expected to live More than four or five years. One is reminded of those advertisements that occasionally Grace English papers whereby anyone who wishes the reversion of a Benefice is informed that the present incumbent is in Bis 78th year in failing health and an apoplectic subject. Continuing his theme or Bruce Smith went on to Deal with the Large imaginary sums that the Engineer in chief might have gained in private practice. The House however did not seem to attach much importance to purely Jim Phi i the tical considerations. The statement that it was beneath the dignity of Pat. I lament to waste time in discussing a paltry sum of a i 20o a year no sympathetic smile on the Rin of �"7 who the pathetic Cabinet minister was surrounded. Sir Henry partes in taking up his parable was not More fortunate it is Well known that a Strong personal Friendship has subsisted of Many years Between the venerable Premier and the Engineer in Chick of railways. Sir Henry has always in held or Whitton As a Model of engineering skill which sentiment has been reciprocated by a conviction on the part of his Friend that sir Henry Parkes is the Prince of colonial politicians. This Damon and pythias kind of Friendship had not however much influence with those members who Felt that they had to look after the interests of the country1 As Well As or Whitton a. Sir Henry admitted that he was usually no advocate of pensions of any kind. He was embarrassed too with the knowledge that in the opinion of Many competent judges or Whitton a conspicuous abilities were not so Clear As when viewed with the Eye of simple Friendship. The Premier Laid great stress upon his Friend s general honesty of purpose but this was merely setting up nine pins for the pleasure of Bowling them Down. No one called or Whitten s integrity into question. Even his opponents who maintained that his obstinacy had on various occasions involved the government in expensive litigation did not dispute the general uprightness of his character. It was a pity the Point was Ever raised. In such discus. 1 Sions either Eulogius or reflections m the private life of a Public servant at equally out of place. The Straits do a which the Premier was put to find plausible reasons for his proposal cd. Plains his resort to such Flimsy a Jar 1 meats. It is satisfactory to find that the government sustained an overwhelming defeat and that or Winston will Only be Able to draw from Tbs Treasury his Legal pension of. Per annul. The episode is not t however without a certain significance. The new South Wales parliament. 1 while it did not decide against the pension system which was not the Point in dispute was careful to affirm the principle that no civil servant must expect to receive More than the pension provided by Law on the ground of exceptional Public services or the still More indefensible ground of Pri vate the question of the abolition of die f pension system if we May judge Kcjr the feeling displayed by various Meru Bers a is not unlikely to occupy the Uri Tention of the new South. Wales parliament at no Distant period Neici Tref dents As that we have alluded to do not cause it to grow in popular the conviction is strengthening in the colonies As Well As in England that if civil servants Are fairly paid for their services the onus of providing or their old age should be thrown upon themselves. In most instances constant employment and regular income place them in this respect at a Aigi eat advantage compared with other people there is no reason either from the nature of the service or from their exceptional abilities that an invidious distinction should be made Between them and their fellow citizens. It is pleasing to notice that the attempt to enrich or Whitton at the expense of. The taxpayers has been condemned by the new South Wales press representing the opinions of All political parties a verdict which has been approvingly echoed by the voice of the general Public. The Sylvia Park Sale gratification will mingle with the regret which a Felt Over Tbs breaking up of tin Sylvia Park stud yesterday. The prices realised prove that auck Landers have let a get a very Good thing by not taking Over thl property which was repeatedly pressed upon them.
