Evidence

"He [Alfred Midgley] had followed William Lane’s career with interest, and despite his opposition to many of the ideas put forward in the “Worker”, he found himself reluctantly subscribing more and more to the basic policies expressed therein. While living at Taringa, Alfred had made the acquaintance of Mr W. Marchant, a wealthy cordial manufacturer – and a Methodist. Marchant persuaded him to read Bellamy’s book “LOOKING BACKWARD”. The work had created a sensation in Queensland, as it had already done in the United States, Great Britain and New Zealand. Marchant had been so impressed by the publication that he had defiantly taken the chair at a strike meeting, had offered the “Worker” a free machine room for its press, and finally started a profit-sharing system in his own factory. All this he conveyed to Alfred on that brief train journey from Brisbane to Taringa. Alfred may have purchased the book because of the respectable status of the man who recommended it; there were still layers of conservatism in the personality of the ex-Methodist minister.’
