SECESSION MOVEMENT IN NEW
In the Legislative Assembly to-day, Mr. Eden George moved the adjournment of the House to call attention to the bad and grossly unconstitutional administration of the Federal Government, with a view to enabling New South Wales to take steps for its secession from the Commonwealth. The motion was received with laughter. The mover contended that federation had been a ghastly and costly failure, and if the grossly unconstitutional mismanage- ment of the Federal Government were allowed to go on the Commonwealth would be landed in hopeless financial difficulties.
The motion was debated languidly in a very thin House, and at half-past 9 o'clock
a count out was made.
