"DISHING" THE LABOUR PARTY
AIMS OF THE DREADNOUGHT PARTY. MR. HUGHES' EXPLANATION. (Received 9.35 a.m.) SYDNEY, this day. Mr. Hughes, Federal Attorney-General, replying to the attack on Mr. Fisher's policy, declared that the bulk of those crying out for Dreadnoughts were doing co for no other reason than to "dish" the 'Labour party. They were not so much afraid of an attack on Britain as an attack on monopoly. The "Herald," in an appreciative article on the decision to present a Dreadnought, says probably the other States will be compelled by public opinion to follow the lead of New South Wales and Victoria. The Lord Mayor has decided that the people's Dreadnought shall go on.
