THE MIRROR JUNE 11, 1921. The New Cure For Poverty [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 11 June 1921
JUNE 11, 1921. Tie New cere Fir Poverty — . — Several generations -have passed since Dean Swift proposed his .fa mous cure for poverty in the British Isles. There were poor children, in fact, starving children, he observed, both in England and in Ireland. Why should both starve? Indeed, why should either English or Irish starve? Would it not be far better to kill the starving children in Ire and, and convert their flesh into stew for the sustenance of the starv ing children of England? Needless to say, Swift's sugges tion went unheeded. Statesmen its very prone to forget that many a true word is spoken in earnest, and great men are consequently misunderstood. Since the vitriolic Dean descended neath the clay many a generation of knights-errant have shivered their Linces against the iron front of Poverty; but it' remains lor oui own age to bring forth a proposal rivalling in ghoulishness that of the Famous Dublin divine. And, irony of ironies, the author of the proposal is none other...
DINKUM AUSSIE Empiritis [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 11 June 1921
DINKUM , AUSSNB' V Enpiritte 'Dido': The idea contained in the leading article of 'The Mir ror' of 18/5/'21, which challenges the Loyalty League to give a sa tisfactory definition of the word 'Loyalty' in their expression 'Lo- yalty to the Empire' suggests the further thought that the word 'Empire,' as used by them, also requires a definition to enable us to reason about it. Sir Walter James will be the first to admit that there can be no sure deductions made from meaningless promises. It may be, of course, that he con siders 'that the expression 'Loyalty to the Empire' is quite above dis cussion, criticism, or the need for explanation. Matthew Arnold, in his essay on criticism, shows that there are times when the greatest and most necessary work that can be done in a society is the great and noble . work of criticism : and the greatest danger to a nation is the danger of imagining itself #o be so perfect, and so flawless, as tc be above cns ticism. It may be that the period through...
Straws on the Stream [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 11 June 1921
straws w me stpew ? n ? 'S': A little horse-sense such as that exhibited to the Commission on Education the other day by Rufus Underwood, at one time a Minister of the Crown in this State, would considerably help us to do that 're- construction' which is bleated in Parliament, in the clubs, some of the churches, and the grandmotherly gatherings that occasionally put for ward programmes for the ameliora tion of the masses, and incidentally the uplift of everything and every body in general and in particular When one rises from the mass of public commentators and selfap pointed critics and launches out with normal opinions which do not need translation by university professors and newspaper pundits there usually is a flood of guffaws let loose in the press and, if editors are willing, nia garas of sarcasm, biting criticism, and puritanical shuffling. Truth, dressed in homespun is not nearly so welcome as falsehood in a fashion able decolette evening dress. The public secretly likes th...

My First Ten Weeks as an Ex M.L.A. Ben Jones Tells His Story [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 11 June 1921
Mf First TCI WCCftSf S« EAN.I.A. B» jtnes Tells its sttrp On March 12 the electors of Fre mantie decided to give Mr. W. L. Jones a rest from political life for a time. He recounts his experiences since, and vouches for them. I can speak from ten weeks* ex perience, as a have-been politician, and I don't suppose my experience is the least bit exceptional, there are so many of us now. After the poll I went home quietly, and had a crayfish supper — none of the cray .was spilled on the floor. The first serious jolt I got was having to re turn my gold pass — which I did at once in a black-edged envelope. I made no comment, for I knew dear Mr. Pope would understand. My Credit is Stopped. Next thing I knew. was tnat my tradesmen stopped my credit; bills forgotten in the dim azure of the past came rolling in, and I realised I'd have to go and get work. I was thankful I still had a news paper. It was a glorious chance for those who disliked me, people I'd criticised, or refused to lend money...
