People About and About People [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 11 July 1920

People About and. About People Charley Haynes— the Railway Union boss — has a new and original system of wireless telegraphy. He roars so loud through the 'phone that the bloque he is speaking to can hear him without the instru ment at all. ' Starters for the Labour selection ballots are reported to be numer ous and varied, and include Miss Greenough, J. P. Doheny. J. J. Kennealy, and E. W. Walsh, for North Perth; Miss Hooton, H.

SALARIES AND SCHOOLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 11 July 1920

SALARIES AND SCHOOLS. Reports and figures on Teachers' Salaries are in the air, and compari son is the order of the day. Mrs. Mabel Coates in her excellent Sun day Literary Institute lecture, re cently sounded a warning. But it may well be doubted, if no analo gies are made and, if no propor tions are shown, how the man and woman in the street can come to know amid seas of figures the dan ger to us all as a community of, failing to recognise the meaning of the principle, 'equal pay for equal work or effort.' If butter is to be weighed in scales for quantity and quality, so must -work and effort. There is a further danger we think in believing . that a principle is either angelic or diabolic if the en untiator thereof is a popular saint or hero or a disreputable wretch. Salary, we believe, the lexico grapher tells us, used to mean salt money or salt allowance for Roman 'soldiers or workers of the old world. But if the worker of to-day is to '?produce more' he needs— she needs — they ...

STARVING THE UNIVERSITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 11 July 1920

STARVING THE UNIVERSITY. (By 'Prof.') By the time Parliament has con cluded next session close on from £180,000 to £200,000 will have been either expended or incurred on Uni versity accounts — eight years after foundation. If report lies not, items like £770 dynamos have to be accounted for — also commission on sale. Has the University material been looked after properly? . Has the expense of comparatively few engineering, agricultural, or scientific or biologi cal ^students been noticed by the public? 'Not bally likely, ' we hear some militaristic reader of G. B. Shaw chortle. The arts or liter ary students or undergraduates far outnumber the so-called 'practical' element which has roystered down . in Creepy Crawley. But tfc.a en gineering section or 'department' ( ! ) has far outrun the poor arts and languages section in money ex pended. The accounts for the past six or seven years, or as much of them as can be obtained, prove that statement to the hilt. We notice thousands of pou...

A Problem in Logs [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 11 July 1920

A Problem in Logs How much firewood goes to a load? The quantity seems, like the location of Prague, to be uncertain and vague, but, whatever it be, the woodyard gentry are satisfied that it should cost the householder more than hitherto. Why not define the dimensions of this mysterious mea sure? a. *? A Of course, in some cities firewood is more usually sold by the hun dredweight, and no woodyard man ever lived but held it rank heresy to accept the school-boy dictum that '112 lb.— 1 cwt.' No, sir I Only '100 lb.' to a woodyard 'cwt.' Not even repeated short-measure prosecutions can convince the av erage firewood vendor of ths advan tage of the school-boy heresy. * * * However, the Office Mathemati cian supplies a formula whereby he thinks readers may be able to ar rive at the size of a load of wood : — L — the Nth power of C x V x. 1 over vt. where L— log. of the vol ume of a load of wood in cubic cen timetres; n — number of times the wood merchant has successfully re duced the qua...

Fremantle Fragments [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 11 July 1920

fremanlle Fragments The Stone-Graham fight at the Port did not create more excite ment than the flare up between those two friends, Shrewdy and Woodsie; let it be added that they had got under the influence toget her before the scrap, and despite Woodsie's black eye they are still cobbers. A * A It is recorded in the annals of the Turf that much of the hard cash won by Smithy and Bobby in the lucky double, when they landed the five hundred, went to lower the starting price of the ill-fated OXorne. ? ? ? Motto of the Fremantle Business Men's Association: 'All good roads lead to Fremantle.' But tell t», my gentle Neddies, are any of the roads which lead to Fremantle good roads? ? ? ? It is perhaps unfair to Elaine Mayor Gibson, of Fremantle, for the joke put up on the visiting press men at the luncheon to the Prince, but quite a lot of Port people seem to be annoyed at the engagement of an orchestra from outside for the same function, whilst the local mu sicians get the icy mitt. ? ? ...

Fleecing An Injured Man SUSPICIOUS COMPENSATION MATTER AT THE PORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 11 July 1920

Fleecing An Injured Man SUSPICIOUS COMPENSATION MATTER AT THE PORT. There is an oderferous suspicion of dirty work somewhere in a re cent accident case oi the Fremantle wharf. There are certain parts of the world in which smart Corporation lawyers are employed to work the confidence trick on men who are entitled to compensation for injur ies received at their work, but no section of the community wishes to see these unspeakable methods in troduced into Australia. Now, some months ago a wharf labourer named Mackey was sev erely injured on Fremantle Wharf by a basket, which was imperfectly fastened on to a wire rope. The man, of course, received weekly compensation, but it was some time before it was known beyond doubt that his injuries were permanent, and that he was entitled to a lump sum under the Act. ... It was then, it is alleged, that the Harbour Trust got busy, and as a result of a visit to him as he lay in pain on his sick bed, a water policeman got his signature to a documen...

PERTH KINDERGARTEN SCHOOLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 11 July 1920

PERTH KINDERGARTEN SCHOOLS. (By 'Ugly.') Recently representatives of the Ugly Men's Association paid a visit of inspection to various kin dergarten schools. Special attention was given to those in the poorer parts of the city to obtain first-hand knowledge of the conditions under which they are governed, and find if public in terest and financial assistance were warranted. The party consisted of Messrs. A. Clydesdale (President), Dan. Dw yer, S. Jacobson, I. J. Killick, J. Hodge, R. L. Newman, Harry Smith, A. Levy, R. K. Buscomb. Dr. McGregor, and 'Dryblower' Murphy. Except at the Lake-street Muni cipal Grounds the buildings and land were too small and totally in adequate for the number of chil dren attending, and it is a crying shame that the powers that be do not recognise and provide for the betterment of our young children. In some of the schools visited many of the children are drawn from the environment of drunken homes (fine healthy children), and placed in the happy and lovi...

Under the Lash PESTERED POLICYHOLDERS. Insurance Trickery. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 11 July 1920

Undep -fclie X^&sl* PE8TBRED POLIOYECLDERS. Insurance Trickery. For the past few months policy holders in a certain 'mutual' life insurance company have been pes tered by two 'wise men from the East.' These schemers — or some of their ilk — are sent over to this State each year for the purpose of piling up figures for an unhealthy balance sheet. They are introduced to the unwary as 'managers,' 'chief in spectors,' and other high-sounding terms. They are, however, in real ity, special insurance canvassers — nothing more, nothing less — men who are able to tell a darn'd good tale. They are sent out with agents and are introduced as afpresaid to existing policyholders — especially to those who have only recently taken out industrial insurance policies, be cause these people are looked upon as the best marks. This is .bow the play begins: — Agent-: 'Good morning', Mrs. Brown, I beg to introduce our (call him what you like), Mr. So-and-So. He has just arrived from the head office...

THE PENGUIN'S PERIL. IS IT DEPARTMENTAL INCOMPETENCE? [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 11 July 1920

THE PENGUIN'S PERIL. 18 IT DEPARTMENTAL IN0OM PSTENGE? When just previous to last Xmas, the Government fitted up the 60-ton boat Penguin as a trawler to go fishing on the South Coast, doubts were expressed in some quarters as to the boat's fitness for the work, and ?these doubts were more than justified, when the 'news came through a few days ago that the s.s. . Penguin was piled on the rocks at Middle Island, somewhere near Is raelite Bay, and in the district of that energetic (in his own interest) Minister, the Honourable * John Scaddan, who had been such an en thusiastic barracker for the conver sion of the old tug into a fishing boat. The whole disastrous trip stands as a monument to incompetence and stupidity, for it is doubtful if either 'the boat — or some of her complement of men — were fitted for the work entailed. Both her decks and the w.c. leaked into the fo'cas tle, so that when the seas, etc., ran high, the crew could not use their bunks. At Albany the cook and two of ...

CLAREMONT ASYLUM SCANDAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 11 July 1920

CLAREMONT ASYLUM SCANDAL. Compelled by the startling dis closures before the Select Commit tee last year to promise something — the Government pledged its word to effect some alterations in the ad ministration of the Institution for those suffering from mental trouble; but so far little or nothing has been attempted. The Inspector General, under whose control the evils ven tilated before the Committee had existed, and for whose despotic rule it was proposed to substitute % Board of five members, is still in supreme command over the unfor tunate inmates. . . . Recently the case of John George Thompson has again attracted public attention to the Hospital, and considerable query exists as to why Thompson and other patients should not be allowed their liberty. The investigations of the Commit tee and the subsequent speeches in Parliament le/t behind them grave doubt of the administration, doubt which the Department has, so far, done nothing to relieve. Do the Government intend to do any...

UNION OF BANK CLERKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 11 July 1920

UNION OF BANK CLERKS. Mr. 'Ohnes, of the W.A. Bank, is a man with very emphatic ideas about unions. Anent the recently formed Bank Clerks Union, he is reported to have written from 'Ome (where he is now sojourning) that HIS clerks had no need of a union— they were too well treated. This got to the ears of the union, and the remarks— well, we submitted them to our solicitors, and even to the editor of 'Truth,' and the emphatic opinion of both authorities was that no newspaper could dream of pub lishing them. This reminds us of a terrible suck-in that was worked on the Holmes gentleman by Mr. Cyril P. Bryan, who was at the time sec- retary of the Clerks' Union. The clerks were out for an Arbitration award— which, incidentally, all those staunch believers in Arbitra tion such as Sinclair McGibbon, Alf. Sandover, and, in short, most of the gentry connected with the May flower's little- trip to Fremantle— combined to defeat by means of that surest weapon of direct action, viz., the long ...
