Senator GRANT (New South Wales) . - In regard to the opinions expressed by the Age and the Argus, I wish to point out that those journals only wield an influence in Victoria. Outside this State they are absolutelypowerless. Unfortunately, however they have succeeded in so swaying a number of Victorians that the Labour party have been left out in the cold.

Senator- 0'KEEFE- Unfortunately, the newspapers in the other capital' cities- occupy a similar position.

Senator GRANT - In New South Wales we realized Ion? ago that the Daily Telegraph and the Sydney Morning Herald are opposed to- the best interests of the workers. Accordingly, whenever those journals advised us to do a certain thing- we did1 the very opposite,, and as a result we have secured a Labour Government in that State. It is just about up to the- Labourites of Victoria to regard whatever appears in1 the Age or the Argus as having- been' published for the purpose of misleading them. I hope that we shall hear the Age quoted no more in this chamber.
