Vale, Will Crooks [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 11 June 1921
Uale, mm brooks 'M.': Will Crooks, many years Labour member for Woolwich, has gone over to the Great Majority. Perhaps no appreciation of his life and work could be more fitting than the phrase which, according U the cables, he used in answer to an in terviewer a few months ago — 'I have had a good innines.' Although not exactly a brilliant man, Crooks had a happy knack of using the right words in the right place. Another really apt reply that he once gave to an interviewer was on the occasion of his departure on bis visit to Australia some eight or nine years ago. A young man bustled up to Crooks, saying — 'Mr. Crooks, I represent the 'Bri tish Weekly.' 'I represent them daily,' was the reply, and it was no idle boast, in deed, in personal appearance, as well as in Parliament, he represented the British. The journalist ihat des cribed him as 'a very ordinarylook ing person' did him no injustice. In features, in general appearance, nothing picked him out from the or dinary ruck of m...

In 1914 it could still be said that the Empire was in the main self support ing Our people were n:.-t asked to de prive themselves of necessities, to re linquish all possibility of saving for their old age, to sacrifice even the needs of their children, for the sake of seeing distant portions of the globe painted on the map in British red. The old Empire paid its way. The Government are now in the act ot creating an entirely new Bri tish Empire, and they are doing so -without consulting either Parliament or the nation. It is an Empire »v;hicli we cannot permanently garrison with white troops, which will cost untold mil lions to maintain, which consists Largel...
Crocidile of Value HUNTERS DO WELL. [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 11 June 1921
Crocidile of Ualue HUNTERS BO WELL. An industry concerning which very little is known in ths south of Aus tralia is the hunting of crocodiles In the Northern Territory and North Queensland for their skins, the soft white hide under the reptile's bellj' being much in demand for the man ufacture of ladies' handbags and other similar articles, while the coarser parts of the pelt are worked up into even such things as boots. Before the war the principal mar ket v?as in Germany, but now it is the United States and Japan. Some of the hunters earned large sums an nually, one well-known identity in Cooktown (North Queensland') re ceiving as much as £2,000 for his year's catch. Since then, however, the demand has fallen. Most cf the hunting is done by night, the hunter using a kind of metal brazier, in which he keeps a small fire going. It is this fire which is the undoing of the crocodile, for when he comes up from the swamp, which is his home, to investigate it, a nickel-pointed bul'et put...
