SYDNEY, August 1. (Received August 1, 1889, at 1.16 p.m.) The 'Sydney Morning Herald,' in an article on the stonewalling in the House of Representatives, says there is a strong presumption that such a struggle fought out in secrecy is conducted more or less in a discreditable manner, and it questions whether, under any circumstance, persistent obstruction is justifiable. The defence that the Government ought not to force the measure before the people had had an opportunity of expressing an opinion on it could be easily carried too far; in fact to the extent of superseding representative government by a system of public meetings. The continuance of the stonewall was an abuse rather than a legitimate use of Parliamentary privileges. The ' Herald ' admits the importance of the dispute, although it has little sympathy with the methods adopted, and says: "We cannot deny that there has been extreme provocation." It considers that there is neither justice nor sound policy in the special recognition of pastoral and agricultural interests while commerce and manufactures are not accorded recognition.
