Bush Brigands VIII.==In South Australia [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 22 September 1917
Bush Brigands ?v — ? VIII.==In South Australia Three bushrangers named Wilson, Green, and another, robbed the settlers in the vicinity of Lyndoch Valley, South Australia, and ex torted heavy contributions from their victimt in the latter part of the year 1839 and the be ginning; of 1840. These robberies had been going on for some months before news of them reached Adelaide. The colony had been only lounded a little more than three years before, and communication was difficult and very ir regular. There were no roads, and the police provisions were not yet of a character to en able the authorities to cope effectually with such an outbreak as this. The robbers called at Mr. Read's station and knocked at the door of the house. The woman opened the door, and was immediately knocked down by one of the robbers without any notice being given or questions asked. Another rob ber fired his musket at her at so close range that the wadding of the gun bruised her cheek, but the slugs with which ...

PLAIN AUSTRALIAN THE UNENDING KINK. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 22 September 1917
PLAIN AUSTRALIAN ' THE UNENDING KINK. The more intemperate section of what Is llnown as the Temperance Party has here and there been furiously inspired by the war. In America an increasing number of States goes 'dry'— which means that it is, on the whole, rather more difficult to get drunk — at any rate, on good liquor — than it used to be. In England, where restrictions were put on the production of beer for purely economic reasons, the effect was so inadequate that Mr. Lloyd George has since found it well to remove the restrictions on beer in munitions areas. But Australia, intemperately 'temperate' or what not, cannot learn by experience. And so . we have the new tilt against alcohol, The Pre mier of South Australia has had to administer a douche to a deputation. In New South Wales Mr. James Marion is writing letters pointing out that so many millions have been spent on alcoholic liquors during the war period, and on that demanding that alcohol shall be Put Down. On the whole, it...

THE TALK OF THE TOWN The End at Last. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 22 September 1917
TALRor»iETCiWN qr tatler^ The End at Last. It really looks as if the strike is about to end, and I am quite sure that the Strike Defence Committee has been wise in declaring officially at an end a dispute which had ceased to have any real meaning. This has been the most disastrous strike which Australia has known, and yet it has been fought over a misunderstand ?mg and has yielded the men absolutely nothing. My commercial friends are very relieved at the prospect of immediate resumption. No one can estimate what losses have been occasioned as a result of the dispute. The Slorm. What a day it was ! I suppose everyone has stories to tell of roofs and chimneys blown off, of boats stopped and sunk, of obstructions on the railway lines, of floods and various other incidents. Sydney is a most extraordinary place.. We had the turbulent disturbance of the ele ments on Wednesday, and on Thursday morn ing a bright blue sky with the sun shining as brightly as ever.
