A NEW FLAG-FLAPPING ALLIANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 30 April 1921
A NEW FLAG-FLAPPING ALLIANCE. Thc three historic, tailors of Tool- ey Street, who said, " We, the people of England," have their counterparts in Australia, and particularly in Syd- ney, where .it is a barren week in-" deed if some organisation does- not mush room into: existence, and: in. a thin falsetto voice, profess to speak on behalf of a multitude. , Thc multitude is usually the speak- er, who tries to look like a crowd. Or sometimes it consists of as many as half a dozen speakers who endeavor to look like six crowds. One of the latest-and most laugh- able-toadstool organisations to so materialise is the "King and Empire Alliance " consisting-as far as can be detected without the aid. of a powerful microscope-of a few has beens and never-wassers, plus a few more who don't know exactly what they want, but who are determined ; to get it-provided, of course, they' know if they happen to see it. j One of the first duties of new nfem bers-if there are any new members -is to declare ...

Amongst the Ladies. (By "little'Polly.") In speaking to you, dear "sisters, through, my previous contribution*, 1 "did not in tend to make it appear that love is an unknown element of Jife, ! nor the particular gift or grace (o'r vir-' tue '. of young folks-folksy generally designated lovers! ' \\% love ' has shone truly and deeply iii" the haly- con ^day s of courtship;--and - is mut- ually reflected, then the impression lasts and even' deepens 'with time's ravages, cares' /and crosses. It is when there is an intervening shadow -of deception"-that the "love" of courtship days leaves only an ignus fatuus which the realities^ of life soon discover to' be a "negative", which has its vanishing-point^ Life . altogether is, so niucfafof a "false light" that it is a pity the more permanent and,'-useful effects of the latter are not more fully understood In youth wi overlook a study of the future, and in age we sneer at the .pàst..A: 'Why not so direct youth as to make age- tis-'continuanc...

Future Prospects. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 30 April 1921
Future Prospects. - It would be somewhat like the os trich's hiding its heád: in the sands of » the desert to avoid the- sirocco,- for anyone in Darwin to ' fail' to see the grounds-the ; sole" grounds-on ' which the prospects of thc immedi- ate future of this place, depends. And it would be worse still-^it .AVOuld' be criminal-for any man or men. to so act that such action would confuse or destroy .that grounds, and .sb frus- &lt; trate what is à living, and tangible hope. ' We refer to the negotiations now" proceeding :in connection with the re-starting bf operations at'Ves tey's works next year and though ne*t year is a long ¿time ahead\pi us * it is with regret %V have to admit ' that that ;''next year'' is the ; nearest ' - 7N" V " - ; ' ) and only "real goal which spells re- vival and prosperity.

Fares and Freights. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 30 April 1921
izares and Freight». It would be idle to think that fthe i freight and >. fare charges ' operating I between -Darwin and Southern ports i are not a serious bar to the progress of the Territory,, no matter how we may pin our faith to the wonders ex- pected to accrue from the. completion of the North-South' railway. The charge of £25 for a passage from 1 Brisbane to Darwin would make the, English, shipping cormorants who I made so many excess millions > dur 1 inp *he national necessities, of the waf would rubthéit.hands in greedy antic- ipation of fabulous profits if " they could only-supplant-the Burns Philp monopolyand;, the excessive freights are on a par. As an. example: Per last boat we got a parcel ten cubic, ?nchcs froin; Sydney.

We do not object to à minimum charge; but - we think if one of our Dar...
CANDID CRITICISMS. Servility and Autocracy. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 30 April 1921
CANDID CRITICISMS. , ' 1 Servility and Autocracy., : The astounding action of the House ot Representatives, in rejecting % Mr. Ryan's motion prohibiting the' i/nnie Minister from bartehngnaway any, oi Australia's rights and lioerties at thc Imperial Conference, seems dinicuh to understand. We "have , long under- stood a Parliament elected by. the people to be the( embodiment and champion .of popular,, and 'national rights» and it is- an\ acknowledged fact - that the Australian ^people - do not want their national^ status com- promised, or their political and coriiT inercia! rights in : any way circum- scribed. .Rather does ¿ their feeling tend in the direction of further^, in?, dependence of outsiders and sf free* dom from victimisers. ' When, therev fore, on a purely party vote; .as wc K liave been informed - by . ' wire, ttie House of Representatives decides to allow the Prime Minister to hypothe- cate Australia's vital interests as ma, be desired by the Imperial Authori- ties-and...

The Territory and its Administrator [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 30 April 1921
The Territory and its Adminis- trator Thc following, from the "Western Argus',' ' a conservative Kalgporlie newspaper is worthy of reproduc- tion : Though, proverbially, a prophet is not without ^honour-save in his own j country-Mr; Staniforth Smith, who has rçcently relinquished the onerous post of Administrator' of the North . ern Territory, should certainly have his merits recognised both in the State of his nativity, and in that of I his adoption, West Australia, which gave him h:s entree into pub^li life. The Commonwealth Government has made ynany territor'al appointments that have resulted in considerable \stiif-of. ah yúitlpteasántjtháracter-in Australia, but in selecting ex-Senator Smith as'Administrator forjthe Fed- eration in Papua and the Territory it I either displayed, most unusual judg- ment or was most remarkably lucky s Kalgoorlie, which tested his ability in mayoral capacity, and.
