Hawkes Bay Herald
New Zealand

17 November 1888

In the House of Commons today Mr. R. C. Graham, M.P. for Lanark, N.W., delivered a violent, bitter speech, directed against the police. He scathingly denounced the administration of the Home Department by Mr. Matthews, particularly condemning him for allowing the Whitechapel murderer to go unpunished while his officers clubbed the unemployed for asserting their right to meet in public places. He declared that Parliament alone stood between Mr. Matthews and death, for if the public did not feel confidence in their representatives to see that justice was done the life of the Home Secretary would have been in jeopardy many a time. If the present brutal policy were persisted in, there would be in London a repetition of the Chicago riots.
