This being a Small Supply the demand was brisk for All descriptions at prices showing an Advance on late rates. The proceedings of the revision court held in Bacchus Marsh on tuesday proved once again that the electoral act is a complicated one to administer and that local magistrates cannot be relied upon to give its provisions due consideration. All the persons whose names were objected to upon various grounds were struck off the list but in no one instance did the magistrates ask for any evidence of the grounds of objection. They seemed to think the absence of the parties objected to relieved them of responsibility to defend the position of the claimants of votes. We do not think so. We think the magistrates Schuld have required a least a statement on oath from each objector of the grounds upon which he based his objection and if the statements so made seemed inadequate in any degree to justify striking off the names objected to the cases should have been postponed evidence. The act is defective in regard to not making any provision for announcing the Date and hour of holding a revision court. Most elaborate machinery is provided for objecting to names but not a word is said As to notifying time and place for hearing objections. The Law is also ambiguous in its provisions respecting registering notices of objection posted to persons objected to. In one clause provision is minutely made for and it is required As essential to constitute a valid notice that the notice of objection be treated As a registered letter but in another portion of the same clause the magistrates Are told that the production of a duplicate of the notice of objection stamped with a Post office Date stamp is sufficient evidence that the notice was duly posted on that Day and nothing is said about requiring proof of registration also although it is the evident meaning of the act that the person objected to shall have All the Protection which a registration of the notice of objection can give him. It seems Clear that the electoral act requires amendment by it being made essential that the registration of All notices of objection be proved in the usual Way by the production of the receipt of registration if not by a certified copy of the receipt for the letter itself from the person to whom it was addressed. And that the Date time and place of holding a revision court be stated in the notice sent to the person objected to and also in the advertised notice. But the Best Reform of All would be to do away with the whole complicated mass of registration altogether and make rate receipts the electoral right for ratepayers and a form to be issued by constables in charge of police stations under certain regulations which we described once the electoral right for manhood suffrage voters. These documents could be stamped by returning officers when used at elections in much the same Way As a railway ticket is ear marked. Electoral Rolls Are really of no use for anything but canvassing purposes and that is a use which the Community at Large would be better off without than with. Piso Essio Aal politicians Are often hold up to scorn in Melbourne newspapers but has it Ever occurred to the writers of such condemnation that professional party journalists Are really More dangerous to the common weal i the phrase of " agreeing to differ has a new Reading in this Colony so far As the Melbourne dailies Are concerned. With tem Timthey agree to differ about anything which has a political bearing or origin before it is discussed at All. Truth which is synonymous with Fairplay and Wisdom Isa secondary matter party interests primary. We find the Argus declaring that party government is inseparable from parliamentary institutions. This is a half truth which is worse than a whole untruth. Party government in itself As meaning party allegiance is in no Way inseparable from parliamentary institutions. It is Only a very subsidiary Mode of motion facilitating pro Gress towards any Given end after All the Bear Ings of that end and the kind and time of Progress towards it have been settled. In no Case should party allegiance or party govern intent justify wrong doing. It can excuse it of course and unfortunately Many men allow this Small privilege which party allegiance has of excusing wrong doing to Lead them to re Gard it As justifying it and even making it meritorious. They and we distinctly accuse the Argus of doing so exalt party allegiance from its place of servant to Wisdom honesty. And statesmanship to the dignity of master of All those qualities. Such an Assumption is opposed to All ethical considerations and can Only be justified logically in such a Case As allegiance to the roman Catholic religion. There papal infallibility is logically Correct As party government inseparable from papal institutions and the Argus by laying Down the thesis it does that party government is inseparable Roythe working of parliamentary institutions simply imposes upon those institutions the doctrine of of party leaders. Such a doctrine is As barbarous in principle As Reliance upon a Guries incantations fetishes or anything else not capable of standing the test of examination by human reason. The True government in separable from the working of parliamentary institutions or any other institutions Small or Large individual or collective is contained in the words is it that brings the whole Battery of human reason to Bear upon any Given problem. Party allegiance is one ingredient of human reason but it is not a substitute for it As the arg s alleges and practices in common with the majority of Mankind. Perhaps human nature cannot Trust itself unless clothed in party allegiance just As the Soldier s Stock used to be considered one of the sources of strength of the British army but we at an rate shall not teach that such is the Case. Our Small modicum of influence in this world shall go to upholding the thesis that party allegiance is one of the greatest curses that Ever attached itself of parliamentary institutions to Tut ions be it remembered rank e for party allegiance. They i Perowi 05 for delegated authority but not pro in o authority. The highest Excelle ceo d in the working of parliament tile. Would be absolute unanimity y no Tittio h the people to the representative Proee Ding representatives to the exec i head of the government Asa or f joint or socket permitting the faecal chaotic working of the forces cute not e the production of the Saint rib t allegiance to these principles Wilde Ucb c we Hope be the sole adjunct t tile 1c of individual reason on the part to r members of parliament and Minisel Crown and newspapers. We Aroi All persons who really understand purity and highest excellence of Parlie institutions will agree with our set of that possible purity and , and if they grasp our meaning who Che sons take the trouble to do they Wil Prience a feeling of Surprise that the at ment of that excellence seems so Etherea Prospect. They Are so accustomed to Siagllo ing As truth the phrase that her if 111 opposition is As necessary a part of a ment As her majesty s ministry that the accept party quarrels allegiance Crie e dices and All the other departures for p reason As inseparable As the Aro Gyu from the working of parliamentary Tut ions whereas All these things Are re infirmities of those institutions and to i them As not Only inseparable but As 2ti of being exalted into a code of conduct f electors and representatives As the argued is to make them deformities. Parliament institutions worked on the party govern a system Are Only tolerable in such a place great Britain where the grades of approx to the highest positions of Parli Onienta authority Are so Well guarded by Consi detion and influences altogether apart from part allegiance that no incompetent or a North p men can Ever attain to those highest position and the bulk of the parliamentary institution there rescues them from the cortex fall the is intellectually abominable in which the seethe in this Colony owing to their Hin worked on too Small a scale and to their Lein inflamed by such a doctrine As that party allegiance is a Good in itself instead of ony very subsidiary expedient at Best and Alto Gether unnecessary and hurtful ethically can Side red which doctrine we have Here taken the Opportunity and believe refuting. The practical moral we would wih to attach to the above exposition of our in. Caption of what parliamentary institutions ought to be is that the victorian parliament will never be anything but an opprobrium to All connected with it until it is made to consist of at least two Hundred members All elected by single member constituencies both in lower and upper House and of whom one Hundred and fifty members should sit in the lower House and fifty in the upper. Party government would be comparatively harmless in such a parliament until it was eliminated altogether. Indeed the benefits from such a change would be innumerable and As solving the payment of members professional politician scare it would be invaluable Forin such a lower House with Small constituencies the pay could be fixed at �150 per annul. Tue Rabbit suppression act has received but Little Public notice and perhaps this is due to the fact that practically it does not com into operation until after 28th March next for there Are three agencies entrusted with the " suppression of rabbits namely the govern ment the municipal councils and the owners of private property and As Thesel last Lalni Are the most important Agency tile other two cannot be expected to commence operations until landowners do so and they Are allowed three months from the passing of the act by fore any Law but their own Sweet will Presse them to use " reasonable Means for the destruction of the rabbits upon their land and upon the adjacent half of All roads bounding such the seventh clause of the Bill is the principal one and it provides that if after the expiration of three months from the passing of the act the Council of any Muni Cipal District has reason to believe that there Are rabbits upon any land within such District and that the owner or occupier of such land refuses or neglects to use such reasonable Means for destroying the same As the Council shall deem necessary such Council May by notice in writing require such owner or occupier to use All such reasonable Means Andl if after the expiration of fourteen Days from the service of such notice its mandate shall have been neglected the Council May appoint and direct an inspector to do the work and by the tenth clause tile Cost of so doing is recover Able from the owner or occupier. By the ninth clause any inspector is to be allowed to destroy any Wall or Fence which he considers to in a Harbour for rabbits provided he first obtains the consent in writing of the Council of the municipal District and also gives the owner or occupier six months to make the Fence or Wall harmless As a Rabbit cover. The eleventh clause is an important but ambiguous one the ambiguity arising from a very common cause namely putting an important addition to a clause As drafted into the Middle of it so that the beginning and end do not take notice of the Middle portion. The clause in its begin Ning and in its ending deals with the responsibility of councils to destroy rabbits upon All commons or lands vested in the Council and upon half the roads adjacent and empowers two justices on the complaint of three rate payers to enforce this clause against the Cousa cil. So far it is Plain and reasonable enough but in the Middle the responsibility of the Council is extended to any lands in such District other than unoccupied Crown lands thus mating it appear that the real Moti Power of the act is not the Council of the municipality but any three ratepayers i is much As if the owner or occupier of any fail to destroy rabbits and the Council fat to require him to do so then three ratepayers can Appeal to two justices to Issue the nees sary order to a Crown lands Bailiff,1 hoi do the work and charge the my licit Euh with its Cost. The Only other clause Betori upon the duties of municipal councils is the twentieth which requires councils to Send reports to the. Chief Secretary in i a and november of each year setting Forth the Steof of the District in respect to the destry Lionard rabbits. The third clause empowers thle of of land and works to appoint Iliff of Crown lands to destroy rabbits on any re occupied Crown lands and this is the rea1 starting Point of the act As a working measure Eor no one will commence to enforce it in o District while the Crown lands Are untouched there is an immense hiatus we emay a it in the sweep of the act As All grown it occupied by pastoral tenants Aree get Erom its provisions so that in the worst
