OP INTEREST TO LABOR
x By Max Hayes.
Labor has delivered another
terrific blow at the fused two gld
parties in Australia.
West Australia, the 'largest'
state in the antipodean continent
which includes one-third of thev
area of the Australian common
wealth proper and is morte than
twenty times the size ,of New
York state, has been captured 'by
tfie labor party over the combin
ed conservative and libera! forces.
In theylast legislature the fu-,
,sion conservative-liberal parties
controlled 26 seats and the labor
party 24. The new legislature
will have at least 3X labor, repre
sentatives, while the old parties
managed to hold 15 districts, with
four in doubt.
Among the old party leaders
who were defeated were three
cabinet officers and probably a
fourth when the official count isj
made. The-rout was complete
and the fusion politicians admits
that their parties are utterly de-""
moralized and that the labor par-i
ty will be in absolute control fon
two years to cdme.

.On his head a cap was seen ;
He had oil stains on his trousers
And he smelled of gasoline;
But all this was simply, pretense, .
For he owned no buzz machine.
