Thc War in Ireland ; SOME ENGLISH AND FOREIGN CRITICISMS. '. Now that outrages in Ireland are being enacted on a truly grand scale by the British Army, it should not be imagined that the old methods of individual terrorisation and murder have been abandoned. The Irish non-Republican preés recently rç;-/ ported a striking incident. Because he was found to have a summons to attend a Sinn Fein Court in- his' possession, a farmer by the name of O'Connor from Killeentierna, Killar- ney, was arrested and placed in,a lorry by Crown forces, carried some distance, then thrown out on the road, shot at, and left- for dead. Re was removed to a house and a priest sent for, who, on arriving, was ..held up by an English officer while two armed men entered the house. Three shots were fired from within and when the English troops left, O'Con- nor was found to be dead.

ANOTHER MARE'S NEST. THE LIE NAILED. ANYHOW THEY HAVE NO VOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 26 April 1921

ANOTHER > MARE'S NEST. THE LIE NAILED. ANYHOW THEY HAVE NO VOTES. Senator Frcebairn asked in thc dcuatc u tuc i cy ort was correct that me work ot clearing two trees from the aeroplane ground at Darwin cost £767, made up of £680 wages of. 20 men and £87 hire of motor car. Pearce, replied that the usual rate ot [work was £1 per day.but the union considered the removal of trees eas \ual work and "demanded 4s. per hour, which was paid to avoid a strike. The total cost, was £449- Gran- ville Ryrie said that knowing the character of the working men of Darwin he was surprised the trees were removed for less than £767 (Labor dissent). He considered the conduct of the Darwin working men a reflection on the working men of Australia^ There was much interruption from the Labor /'Opposition, whereupon Ryrie said, " Anyhow they have ne» votes."

Amongst the Ladies. (By "Little Polly.") 1 have said a good/deal about thc^ lack of literary devèlopmght^amongst I females of the present? ~¿íay,;^äridv\of j the vitiated tendency of the age. It will not be out of pláe, to* refer ki this contribution to other peculiarit- ies of the 'fair sex,' my object, of course, being not so much to con^ demn , as to unmask and reprove. Young ladies nowadays^ have an ut- ter abhorrence of being seen, even at home in v plain, or what used, to be long ago known as an every-day dress* And this abhorrence extends to all the other painted and powder i td decorations which have become "their distinguishing -marks in the streets.

WHEN THE WHISTLES BLOW AGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 26 April 1921

WHEN THE; WHISTLES BLOW AGAIN. It will be a note of gladness, When the whistles blow again ; None will wear a look jof sadness When the whistles blow again ; For, there's music sweet and cheery-4 Sounds that soothe the idle-weary In the tocsin, wild and bleary, When.the whistles blow again. Toilers, sweat, but win their wages, When the whistles blow again ; Mothers torn to brighter pages When the whistles blow again ; Frowns and: fears avaunt instanter, Things go on as in a canter, ¿Tis the voice that shames the sch hunter, When; the whistles blow again. Long may true men hold the . helm When the whistles blow again ; Long may peace o'er spread the realm When the whistles blow again ; NLong may justice hold dominion In the shaping« of opinion, Free from despot, fool and minion, When the whistles blow-again.
