As You Meet It. CHARACTER SKETCH, BY "TIM TOUCHUP." THE ALDERMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 28 April 1921
As You Meet It. CHARACTER SKETCH, s BY "TIM TOUCHUP." >" THE ALDERMAN. ^ Perhaps the war, the price of but- ter, and the horehound pest have no connection with and are not respon- sible for the aldermanic genus. Per- haps the perverseness with which nature refuses to become suddenly transformed, and the" giddy flirt, for- tune to look both front and rear, are not even distantly associated with aldermanic evolution. .'Tis only my crass way of looking at things, that makes me refer to these points, and yet I may be permitted to enquire in the style of the learned Brudder Bones and other oracles : Whar did the> genus Alderman come from ? That he is abroad and , in the flesh not to^say in^ihe spirit is self-evi- dent. If you doubt it keep your weather eye on ministerial deputa- tions-I shcuild have said aldermanic deputations. A close observation will reveal to you, vdear readers,- the sol- emn fact that firstly, there is a genus alderman ; secondly that, the - aidera jnajLihasvge...
Profit's First Claim. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 28 April 1921
Profit's First Claim. ' We publish in this issue the'basis oi the agreement upon which the miners' strike in Great Britain is pro pose4 to be settled. The vital prin- ciple of the terms is wrong and vic- ious and because of its inherent par - 'tiality and injustice a permanent settlement cannot accrue. We refer to ttíe stipulation that PROFITS are to be the first charge upon the in- dustry. -No, body of men imbued * with~a(sense of right and.wrong, ano" on whose sweat and toil and self-sac- rifice the great industry of a nation depends, could yield to such a pro- ! posai unless under dire necessity or | coercion. It is probable that the vis- ion of "Excess of ..profits to be shar- ed" has cajoled, or may, cajole the unfortunate British miners into aac ceptanccof this pernicious principle, " but 'it ,will assuredly prove the grounds for another and, perhaps, final industrial upheaval What would a body of Australian workers think of a Company that offered employ« ncnt, and vmade the s...
CANDID CRITICISMS. The Slump. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 28 April 1921
CANDID CRITICISMS. The Slump. According to our telegraphic news in this issue there is going to- be a , serious slump, if jnot collapse in mar- ket' prices of Australia's principal , products. Mr. Hughes has just made .the announcement;' but failed to ex-, plain the "relationship between this prophecy and Hughesism, militarism and exploitation. His predominant, feeling "seems rto be one of sympathy with the wool- kings,- the cattle kings, and others of that ilk, who have Keen , ''' receiving abnormal prices not only during the war and siri'c, but for the past twenty years. And the alleged prosperity of Australians, as far as. Hughes' ! philosophy and political economy go, consists in the pickings which tney got out of the excess pro- fits of' these wool and cattle kings, and which was more than counter- balanced by the excess profits which the manufacturers, importers and re- tailers demanded for all classes .of, ^goods. It doesn't appear to have oc . curred to Hughes and his gang t...

COSTLY AND USELESS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 30 April 1921
COSTLY AND USELESS. I The Federal Parliament costs a , lot of money, and gives such value ' for it that were the cash tossed an- nually into the sea, like the Doge's ring, it would be cheaper for Austra- lia. : To bo perfectly blunt, the Federal Parliament under the domination of a one-time Domain dosser, is an, ab- solute disgrace to representative in- stitutions. I During the war it abdicated its . democratic functions, surrendered in- I to the. hands of Hughes and his satellites every power it was suppos- ed to wield for the safeguarding of thc. people's interests, and for all the I intents and purposes of constitutional government practically put up the shutters. It went on assiduously drawing its salary but apart from the_ large-sized hole that it made in the treasury j there was nothing to remind us of tts existence. j I When it carried the War Precaut- ions Act it rendered itself useless committed political suicide, in fact, and for years was simply an expen- sive corpse avoi...
