    Deakin’s second period in office from 1905 to 1908 was one of relative stability due to Labor Party support. He was able to embark on establishing some fundamental legislation that extended Commonwealth control over areas previously under state authority. This parliamentary session was dominated by the issue of ‘New Protection’ where local manufacturers would be given a certain level of protection provided they gave their workers ‘fair and reasonable’ wages. The new Conciliation and Arbitration Court, in a case relating to the Sunshine Harvester Company, determined that a reasonable wage should maintain a ‘human being in a civilized community.’Despite a successful High Court appeal against the decision, the ‘basic wage’ adjusted against cost of living was established. In 1908 the old age pension was introduced, the Seat of Government Bill finally passed and the American ‘Great White Fleet’ visited as part of Deakin’s campaign to pressure Great Britain on the creation of an Australia...

    Deakin’s ability to serve three terms as prime minister, against a backdrop of fluid party alliances, illustrated his skill as a political strategist and powerbroker. From the 1903 election until the ‘Fusion’ of Deakin’s Protectionist Party with the Free Trade Party in 1909 there had been what Deakin described as the equivalent of ‘three elevens’ on a cricket field. All three parties, Protectionist, Free Trade and Labor had near equal numbers and could not form a workable majority without creating an alliance. Throughout this period, Deakin governed with the support of Labor. This was not without tension, Treasurer Sir John Forrest resigned in 1907 after advocating a break with Labor. Deakin’s numbers were dwindling and in 1908 he lost office after Labor leader Andrew Fisher withdrew his support. In response to the growing strength of Labor, Deakin negotiated ‘Fusion’ with the Free Traders in 1909, providing him with the numbers to assume office for the final time. Deakin acknowledg...

    In May 1908 Deakin secured the approval of Parliament for the creation of the Australian Men of Letters Fund, later renamed The Commonwealth Literary Fund. The scheme provided modest pensions for aged or infirm authors, authors unable to continue working for financial reasons and support for the families of writers who had died in poverty. Deakin was a passionate and voracious reader, he reflected that ‘measuring happiness by quantity, its fullest source for me has come from books.’ He consumed on average 96 books a year, a rate of nearly two per week throughout his public life. His personal library at the time of his death consisted of 1500 books on subjects such as history, philosophy, biography, health, agriculture, poetry, literature and literary criticism. As a younger man, Deakin wrote poetry, dramas and prayers and, after meeting the proprietor of The Age newspaper in May 1878, began to write political editorials. Remarkably, as Deakin was about to become a minister, he accep...

    Deakin was a persuasive orator, described as being ‘silver-tongued’ and vividly reported in The Australian as someone who ‘can throw a halo of attraction around the orifice of Hades.’ Deakin needed to draw upon all his considerable skills as an orator in addressing a hostile crowd in Brunswick on 4 April 1910, towards the end of the federal election campaign. A large part of the crowd felt betrayed by Deakin because he had entered into an alliance with his former political enemies the Free Trade Party. The address to an audience of 6000 people, was held in what was described as ‘a large iron building, barn-like, rough, dimly lit – a nail factory once…’Deakin, attempting to address the crowd, was greeted with shouts of ‘Judas, Australia’s traitor and loafer’ along with counting from one to ten that concluded with a cry of ‘out’. This was followed by a refrain of ‘We’ll hang old Deakin on a sour apple tree.’ Deakin was reported as ‘smiling and self-contained’ and, with a voice pushed...
