Belmont Bangs [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 10 October 1920
Belmont Bangs (By "Solon.") The motor hogs have slowed dowm a bit lately. (Thank you, Mirror.) Police supervision is still required however, as there are a few goats who still persist in doing the mile a minute stunt. &nbsp; &nbsp; The "cracker and throw down" &nbsp; season is upon us, and is one of the greatest curses that the horse owner has to contend with. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Local brats take delight in banging ing "throw downs" at passing horses &nbsp; and motors at night time. &nbsp; Valuable racehorses are nightly &nbsp; terrified when stabled by the inces sant noise. Out of consideration for the "shell shock" soldier the use of crackers, etc., should be prohibited. Mixed bathing is in full awinrj] again, and some very costly bathinjl suits have made their appearance.: Jl Belmontites take their dtnoasjl very seriously, but why and how WM it that only about 10 per osnt. at'M them can dance to time. ;?a Ji...

The Way of the Charitable Sneak Mingling Greed with Generosity the Real Parasites on the Backs of the People [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 17 October 1920
The Way of the Charitable Sneak Mingling' Greed with Generosity The Real Parasites on the Backs of the People By 'Puritan Paul*9 A waitress employed by Boans' Ltd., Perth, sued that firm lately to recover 6/-, illegally withheld from her. He wages were 36/- weekly. On September 6th last she was un able to work owing to. an injured ankle. £he informed Boan's that she would be unable to work that day. At the end of the week she claimed full wages, but was paid only 30/-. She left the firm later and requested payment of the 6/ deducted. She was told that there was noth ing doing until she satisfied the manager with proof of her illness. Wisely and pluckily the girl sued them. Boans Ltd.'s defence was that it was their custom (mark you, they make a law) that all hands were engaged subject to deductions from wages for temporary illness, causing their absence from work. Fortunately for the girl her case was heard by two justices, Messrs. Bolt and Mather, Jc'sP., who appear to possess back...
LIZARD BIRD FOUND. Believed Extinct for 1,000,000 Years. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 17 October 1920
LIZARD BIRD FOUND. Believed Extinct for 1,000,000 Years. Professor Beebe, of the New York Zoological Society, who has been engaged for some time in mak ing researches into the bird and insect-life of British Guiana, reports that he has discovered a bird sup posed to be extinct for a million years, states the Demerara corres pondent of the 'Daily Mail.' The bird .resembles a small lizard, and lives in the bush along *the* fore shore. Professor Beebe is a very well known zoologist, and a further account of the new bird will be awaited with interest. No bird so far known to ornithologists could be said to correspond to a small liz ard. Prof. Beebe .evidently knows no thing of Perth and its Guns. They seem to be able to find plenty of lizard birds. Get a living out cf them, too. They may be getting a bit harder to find, but have al ways been plentiful in city bars and the racecourses, not to men tion the bush.
Boans Bumped by Burnside A JUST JUDGE Punctures a Pernicious Practice Weekly Wage Not Reducible [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 17 October 1920
Boans Bumped by Burnside A JUST JUDGE Punctures a Pernicious Practice ? # Weekly Wage Not Reducible Keep justice for ever in your eye. Steer wide of t He Charitable Sneak, Who,;to lull the cry of toil, Spares a trifle from the spoil, He has^wrung from the wreckage of the -weak ! v The decision recently given by Mr. Justice Burnside' in the case of the Hotel, Club, and Restaurant Union v. Boan's Ltd., showed up in its true light a pernicious habit by means of which employers profit by the illness of their employees. The case was taken by the Union in or der to put an end to the practice of making deductions from wages for time lost through illness. It has often been ruled on a point of law that a weekly wage is not reducible, but nevertheless there are many industries where the habit of deducting lost time is per mitted to continue with its validity unchallenged. In the case men tioned the matter was not only a point of law, but a matter of equity. When a waitress is away ill in such...

DOING SOMETHING USEFUL AT LAST. ' Princess As a Cow Keeper. How Ruined Rnssians Earn a Liv it ing. £. large yftumber of the Russian aristocracy who have been ruined by Bolshevism havfe taken to farm ing and dairy keeping in France, writes the Paris correspondent of the 'Daily Express.' - Countess Ignatieff, nee Princess Mestciiersky, with her son, keeps thirty cows in a Paris suburb. They have former officers 6f the Russian Imperial Guard working for them, as well as Prince Lyszezynski. Another prince, Boris, earns his living by painting portraits. In another Paris suburb *there is a Russian count making money by growing mushrooms, and the salads raised by an ex-colonel are farfam ed. Prince «Goudacheff; the Russian ex-ambassador to Spain, possesses a farm in the centre of France; an other colonel, with some brother officers, runs a, small garage; while General Nicolaieff drives a motor lorry in Paris, and a number of Russian ex-nobles are said to be taxi-cab drivers. . , When the r...
Tork! At Harvest Terrace. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 17 October 1920
M\ i At Harvest Terrace. Dull and calm was tile political atmosphere this week—but a mea sure to allow women to sit in Par liament has become law. It pass ed the Lower House unanimously, and in the Upper Chamber, tnree members got out to avoid voting, Messrs. Miles, Holmes, and Sir Ed. Wittenoom — they represent the Nor'-West, where there are few women voters. Ten Foot' Ned Wittenoom got a clause in the Cruelty' to Animals' Bill to allow owners of barking dogs, which annoy motors and other vehicles to be prosecuted. The clause started, but was rubbed out later as being out of its place. .On the same debate, dealing with the right to poison wild dogs and foxes, Cornell wanted to include cats as ti\e 'archfiends of the poul try yard.' Dismal Jimmy must be popular with his neighbours. During the discussion of the Min ing Estimates, NOT ONE MEM BER of the 'Producers Party' (i.c Country Party) condescended to be in the House, and the debate dawd led on to empty benches. A Slight Breeze. ...
A TIRED DEPARTMENT. PERTH'S POST OFFICE PEOPLE PILLORIED. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 17 October 1920
A TIRED DEPARTMENT. PERTH'S POST OFFICE PEO PLE PILLORIED. — u— Before the outbreak of war in 1914 the Perth G.P.O. people hoist ed flags by day and lights by night to advise business people of the ar rival and departure of oversea mails. However, now that the world has been made safe for De mocracy, and the 'League of Vin dictive Victors' are in charge, the powers that be are either under the domination of the 'aforesaid Vindictive Victors, or are too «red to put in force the old practice of hoisting flags and lighting lights on our ancient Town Hall. We be lieve the latter is the case, and so The Mirror calls on the D.P.M.G. to show cause why the- prewar prac tice is not resumed. Evidently the Department is en deavouring to increase its telephone call revenue, by discontinuing the practice referred to, and if that i= so the sooner some of the business men get busy and put the come hither on the local postal pluto crats the better. The tale they tell the Pommy to kid him out to Aus...
SCADDAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 17 October 1920
SCADDAN. He's turned his plaguey coat again, John's getting ready for the rain The thing was getting brown and old, ' And Scad, was feeling done and cold. High cost of living? Bless you, No ! John's ego must be on the go, To keep bis liver fit and right. And so, one wretched sleepless night, Whilst cogitating what he'd do, He heard an awful cry of 'Moo.' '1 have the office!' loud he cried, 'I know now where I shall abide.' Then- plunging neath the eiderdown He thought of what he'd do in town. Next day, when sitting in his chair, He stroked all that he has of hair, And thinking, thinking very bard, He scribbled on bis travling caret, Quite generoustike and hearty, 'Hon. John Scaddan, Country Par ty.' 'Ill make it fit, you bet IH be The keystone of their family.' They were weeding their way to wards Stack's Savoy Cafe. 'I think we'll go down to Garry's to tea,' said the man. 'Oh, yes,' she said, 'is that the de Garis I hear so much about?' 'Anything in the Dily News about Queensland?'...
THE FIENDISH HUNS. Another German Atrocity. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 17 October 1920
THE FIENDISH HUNS. Another German Atrocity. The town of Miltown Malbay (County Clare) suffered severely as the result of the reprisals taken by soldiers in revenge for the ambush ing of .a motor lorry carrying auxil iary police, four of whom were kill ed. Miltown Malbay resembles a Belgian town after a German raid. Hundreds of women and children are sleeping in the woods. The raiders had large supplies of pet rol, and they quickly rendered the houses uninhabitable, though other soldiers, stationed in the town did - their best to put out the flames. The inhabitants are still terror-stricken, and scores are migrating with their household goods. Thank goodness our brave Brit ish soloiers are not like the beastly Hun. The soul of chivalry, they treat women and children like their own mothers and sisters.

The Sunday Mirror PERTH, SUNDAY, OCTOBER 17th., 1920 WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 17 October 1920
Cbe Sunday mirror PERTH. SUNDAY, OCTOBER 17 th., 1920 WHEAT. History is somewhat nebulous upon one of the most important episodes in the varied tale of human progress. Somewhen be tween 2,000 and 10,000 years before the Christian era a man of one of the early River Valley civilisations domesticated a full-eared grass, the ancestor of the almost unnumbered varieties of wheat which provide some six hundreds of millions of Earth's children with their staple food. Man was man before wheat was known. Man, the sapient, had ns en to pre-eminence as a result of hand and brain, organs of thought and action, unapproached by any of the marvellous or monstrous forms of earlier ages. Fire, weapons, domestic animals confirmed bam in overlordship of Nature, but these alone left him as they found him, much of a savage. The flickering flames of earliest civilisation bear witness to rudi mentary attempts at cultivation, Cultivation gave to human society the stability, the localisation essential to th...
Government Helps Political ex(?)Policeman With Public Money HARRY MANN, A WOULD-BE LEGISLATOR. "To what base usages we may return, Horatio." (Hamlet). [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 17 October 1920
Government Helps Polit ical -?x(?)Policemai\ With Public Money . ? ^j ? HARRY MANN, A WOULD-BE LEGISLATOR. 'To what base usages we may re turn, Horatio.' (Hamlet). When Mr. Pilkington, K.C., an nounced his intention of not again contesting the Perth Seat, people's minds turned to the present Mayor as his possible successor, as the man for Perth. Instead of which, 'ex- Detective-Inspector Mann announ ces his candidature in the National ist interest— with aparently the support and connivance of the Gov ernment, which has certainly done all it can to help Mr. Mann perhaps with the idea— if they and he should happen to fluke back to power next March, of making him Minister of Police or Prosecutor of Unionists, or something. Until April, 1917, Mr. Mann was a detective-sergeant. On the 20th. April, 1917, a special regulation was framed to allow him to fill an en tirely unnecessary position as a de tective-inspector. The Leader of the Opposition referred to it in Parliament on November 7, ...

Koltchak council and his Report A BITTER PARTISAN POLICE BRASS HAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 17 October 1920
holtcbah conneil and his Report A BITTER PARTISAN POLICE BRASS 'HAT. Koltchak . Connell's annual report to the Minister controlling the Police Department is illuminative in many respects. There are many things he could have told Parliament (and incidentally the public) which would have been interesting and instruc tive, but which have tjeen entirely omitted. How interesting it would be to the public to know how many members of the rank and file of the force Koltchak compulsorily retired for alleged physical defects or hav ing reached the retiring age as com pared with the -number of brass hats — if any — who have been com. pulsorily retired for sifnilar reasons. Whether iis brutal regulation which compels, members of the force to submit themselves to a medical board at his behest to determine whether they are physicaly fit to continue in the service — is valid or not? Why Chief Inspector Mc Kenna, who is bordering on 70 years of age, is retained in the force, while much younger men ...
