Tho Bill was subsequently re Ceicel from the Council without amendment. The House adjourned lit 10 . Tun Cable message to publish to any respecting German annexations to the North of us confirm ill the fears we Havo entertained concerning what we must cull Hie treachery of the Home government towards these colonies. Lord Derby was pleased to say As we Wero duly informed by Telegram Thal it was better to incur the displeasure of Tho european Powers than to alienate the colonists of Australia. This it seems was merely solemn Humbug. Ile knew ill the time that he had agreed with Germany for that which we austra lians particularly desired to avoid the establishment of another great military and naval Power within easy reach of our shores. And this agreement was absolutely unnecessary. Sir Thomas in ill wraith in the exercise of his undoubted right As a British subject had proclaimed the sovereignly of Tho Queen Over the Terri tories that Havo now passed into the hands of a foreign and it the presen1 moment a decidedly unfriendly Tower. Had that annexation been confirmed or if it had been immediately followed up by i More formal and official act Tho need for the pre sent humiliating Concession would never have Arisen. Nothing has been wanting to fill up the measure of insult to Australia. The pre tended deliberation of the Torae govern ment the Long delays and the apparent reluctance with which it yielded to the eager solicitations of australians to preserve them and their children from the Vicinity of another possible enemy and their equally eager of Eis to Bear the Cost of annexation were fill subterfuges. Tier majesty s govern ment were gaining time to find out How much Prince Bismarck wanted and what he would be graciously pleased to allow to England. Not Ono word of All this was allowed to trans2 ire. To were elaborately be fooled with Hopes that what we asked for and what Ive had a right to demand would be granted. It was no favour that Australia asked. The european Community Here surely the one civilised Community which is most concerned in the Fate of Hie Pacific merely asked for permission to take and hold at their own Cost a no Man s land adjacent to their shores. They asked for leave to prevent the establishment of a danger to their own and British com Merce at their Orvii Cost. Ltd we not been notified the last time that England approached the verge of a War in which we were not concerned that we should have to defend ourselves against any dangers i Oil might be brought upon in to accepted the intimation Avi Thoutt a murmur and prepared for defence. What More natural than for us to demand leave to secure oin selves by keeping at length any future danger that Imperial policy might being upon tis or our children ? what has been done cannot be undone. We do not suppose that her majesty s government care Arery much for the fact that they have struck a dangerous blow Al the link that binds together the Empire. It i a blow of which Tho full effect will not yet to Felt. The Bare announcement of what has happened will perhaps not strike people very forcibly. Hut As time goes on it Cli acts will make themselves Felt. Another foreign Flag the Flag of a ambitious and aggressive Power is flying Avi thin easy reach of our shores anti it covers a group of dependencies which Are Only second in a Alue to Australia itself. The dutch half of new Guinea will speedily fall into Ger Man hands but even without it the have harbours where they can accumulate Coal anti a Fleet for a stroke at our shores. The i Friendship of Germany will in future to the Price at which ave must Purchase our Security. The germans will be at Liberty to use their new possessions is France a using now Caledonia and Between them to concentrate the Rasca Lity of half Europe within easy Access of our towns. A a Hole Vista of possible danger has opened before us and we owe it entirely to the government which is in a special sense bound to protect us and guard our interests. The Reward for our unquestioning loyalty to the Empire has been that Avo have been deliberately find coolly betrayed. The ministers of our Queen who without compunction told us we must defend our selves when danger urea toned the Empire have by their Avn act tied our hands and in a great measure left a helpless in face of a probable foe. In a recent Issue Xvi dealt with the Dis Pute Between the Boot manufacturers of Victoria and their workmen. Unhappily the strife Between the two parties still continues and the broach is widening instead of lessening. Passing from this local quarrel to May ask the question " Why Are lock outs and strikes possible no better answer probably eau be Given than that of professor Jevons. He makes the state ment that " the present doctrine is that the Workman s interests Are linked to those of other workmen and the employer s interests to those of other this Slater font of the Caso will to recognised As a Correct one both by employers and employed. In it will be found the secret of All disputes whether they Spring from the Side of the masters or from that of the men. When the Clay shall Dawn As most assuredly it will that " the Workman s interests shall to bound up with those of Hie employer and be pitted in fair Competition of other workmen and employers then and Only then will Thero be no organised strikes and no Long disputes rendering business Uncertain and various efforts have been made to bring about this desirable state of things. At one time it was thought that the system of co operation would bring in the social millennium. To elicit this the late Rev f. D. Maurice in Union with messes. Ludlow Hughes and others wrought with great Zeal and self sacrifice. Ali her it was that there was something inherently wrong in their plans or whether the Ujj Mitish Workman was too much tra Meled by Trade usage or whether it arose from the fact that society has not awakened to the benefits of such movements suffice it to say that ibis quasi philanthropic quasi business scheme failed. True it is unit there Are some notable exemptions Rioin failure and a few co operative on have reached wonderful dimensions and reaped an astonishing Success. He what Aro the m among so Many the record Bho Vvs failure after failure in to open Tivo ventures and the wrecks of enterprises Are seen in abundance. Supposing that they All Ai Uro successful they would 011i3 link to Gether Lite Workman s in Pital Aud the Kavork Man a labour while outside the Small Circle of their operations there would lie the much larger held on which capitalists used their wealth and where the wage remuneration avas the Only payment the operative received. To note that the bookmakers of Victoria Are enamoured of this plan and that they contemplate Start ing a co operative Boot factory. Such an institution May palliate the evil now exist ing Nuil that is All it will not Correct it. With the failures in the colonies and in the old country that face us it seems very doubtful whether Hie palliation will be extensive in its character or of Long duration. A More promising scheme is that of in Austria partnerships. The principle on which these Are formed is somewhat As follows the weekly wage is regarded simply As subsistence Money and at the end of a fixed period after making allowance for interest on capital depreciation of Plant bad debts and other contingent losses the not profit is equitably divided Between masters and men. But even Here Success Bun not been Universal and strange to say the practical English have been distanced in this Field by the so called unpractical French. Messes. Briggs and son for some years worked their collieries at Whitwood on the Industrial partnership plan with benefits to themselves and their men. Messes. Fox head and co., at Middlesbrough also car ried on their Iron works for some years on the same principle. For a while the schemes worked Well but ultimately at both places they broke Clown and were abandoned. Across the Channel these partnerships have been lasting and More beneficial. Under the name of participation Aux be a it Iees there Areno less than Foi to firms in Paris that thus make the men sharers in the pro fits with the masters. Some time ago an English Magazine gave a full description of the manner in which a Large House decorating business in Paris one employing some 200 hands carried on very successfully its business under the Industrial partnership plan. It was proved that by it the Mon received better pay the Masteru interest was More looked after and the work done Vas of ii higher Quality than under the old plan of simply paying wages. In tfx once then inti Stival partnerships have proved a Success but in England they have failed. Or. Jevons s account of these failures is Given in the follow words when we remember that these few experimental partnerships were started in single handed opposition to powerful trades unions we can see that there May have been interfering causes sufficient to ensure the inference of course is that in prance Indus Hial partner ships have a free course and a fail Field hence they Are a Success. Fifty years ago Babbage had a very Clear Conception of the Wisdom and Utility of these associations and then he wrote it would be of great importance if in every Large establishment the Mode of payment could be so arranged Thal every person employed should derive advantage from the Success of the whole and that the profits of each individual should Advance As the Factor y itself produced profits of making any change in it is on these lines that we must look for the solution of the question capital versus labour and for the answer to the Oft repealed inquiry How to Stop Trade disputes. Experiments will show the cause of failure on the part of remedial measures and further cup Eiienne will show the Way to Success. Pending the striking into the right track to must fall Back upon arbitration and conciliation and these will Patch up a quarrel though they May not Lomove the real but latent cause. Even again a a legally appointed Board of conciliation trades unions fight. This was seen in the opposition Given by the trades of Victoria to or. Llic Hardson s recent attempt to secure for such boards a Legal recognition and standing. We cannot help fancying that this opposition was Baseil on the fear that Othello s occupation would be gone a needless fear and a groundless jealousy. And inasmuch is it has been Well said that a strike is the end of discussion and the beginning of War we should be glad to see these boards duly constituted pending a More Radical Reform. The letter of or. J. Malbon Thompson published in the courier in refer no to a statement made in the Council by or. Gregory that surveyors had levied Black mail on settlers in the Moreton District w As referred to in the Council yesterday afternoon.

Or. Gregory and other lion a numbers said i hey Sis Ioel it to be distinctly understood that if they did not sote against the Bill they did not pledge themselves to the adoption of Tho plans of All the railways provided for in the Bill when they Svere submitted to the Council for approval. At or the w11 had got into committee or. Mein con tended that the government had talc n the usual course in parsing their finn Nei ii measures at the end of the session when their legislation had been adopted. Ile said in Ais scr to a question that he via not prepared to state what proportion of the loan would first be placed is that would depend on the state of the English Money Market. He added that about �2,030,000 had been annually spent from loan and that the future expenditure would not fall Short of that.

To had a personal interest because his name had been dragged in without rhyme or reason and to would with the Able assistance of Tho House Havo the evidence produced Berc the report was adopted. Or. Mein Mado o few conciliatory observations and said the matter with which the president s name had been connect cd waa a Trumper affair quite foreign to the inquiry and in no Way reflected on sir Arthur Palmer. A for. Walsh attempting to speak again on the subject was called to order and then said to had been prevented from saying what he had to say because Thoy Hail a blustering boisterous president. Members All round the House called " order and the president interjected a Drunken Mem or. Walsh went on to assert thut to had a stored duty to perform and that lie had endeavoured to preserve the character of the president knowing that it Van used preserving when to was again interrupted by cries of " order and it being now 0 . The presi Dent said to should resume the chair at 7 o clock. Members loft the chamber in some confusion but when the House resumed or.
