MR. MITCHELL'S RESIGNATION [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 11 July 1920
MR. MITCHELLS RESIGNATION At a late hour last evening ad- vices reached us to the effect that a serious Cabinet crisis had arisen as a result of the Civil Service bomb shell. Messrs. Scaddan and Cole batch were understood to be the leading malcontents, and in political circles the resignation of the Pre- mier, Mr. Mitchell, is hourly ex pected. Tramway Accident— Wilde, the motonnan injured in Friday's tram way smash, was reported last night as progressing very favourably.

The Sunday mirror PERTH, SUNDAY, JULY 11th., 1920 Physical Force— The Historic Failure ' 'Marcus, too, is a Christian !' Spoken though they be but in the imagination of a writer of fic- tion, these words exemplify a truth which underlies, aa it enlivens, the philosophy of the great leaders and teachers who from time to time have appeared, as though envoys of Eternal Wisdom, to point out to men what, with curious unanimity, they called The Way. Zoroaster, Akhnaton, Lao Tse, Confucius, Gotama the Buddha, Plato, Jesus Christ, Leo Tolstoi— to mention some in their chronological sequence —despite the vast disparities amongst their creeds, ranging from the almost atheist philosophy of Confucius to the fervent and living Deism of the Galilean, all centred their religious or philosophic systems round the one idea, namely, the inevitable failure of physical force when opposed by moral strength. And all, with the exception of the Pharoah Akhnaton, whose name, we venture to predict, is destine...

Pars—Pungent and Polite [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 18 July 1920
Pars — Ptingent and Polite So the farce continues. Colonel Sir Matthew Nathan, of the Silver King's Combine, is to be appointed Governor of Queensland. He has only studied the defence of Queens land. He made a confounded mess of the Irish Question as UnderSecre ?tary to Jackdaw Birrell. The shameless effrontery of it all! Is this the only man in the world they can officially think of? While and as long as State Governorships are retained, at the least, there should be a list of possible — or impossible — candidate for the Government -to select from. But this hole and cor ner way of doing and diddling things continues, ever destined to failure in detail. Still, even this type of Gov ernor is preferable to Trade Commis aries. ? ? ♦ Asked her reason for leaving a snug billet at a city pubbery, the titian-haired bar-belle declared that she couldn't stick the attentions of Mr. Publican. 'You know,' she continued, 'how could I tolerate an old sinner like him, with one foot in the grave an...
Under the Lash INSURANCE SHARKS. Hit Up by Their Sweated employees [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 18 July 1920
Undep 4; Ire X^asli HTSUBANOE SHARES. Bit Up by Th«ir Sweated Employees. Making More Millions for the Multi-Millionaires— such is the task of the insurance canvasser. No body of workers in the country are employed under such arduous con ditions as these men. They are sub ject to all the vicious evils of the 'piece-work' system. .Their hours are long and uncertain? their remu neration equally uncertain and sel dom proportionately long. They work entirely on commission, yet -are responsible for the handling of large sums of their employers' money. The Arbitration law does not re cognise them as workers. Negotia tion or strike are their only alter natives. Upon the formation of the union they put in a demand of 5 per cent, in crease on collecting commission, and 'five times' more as extra commis sion on new business, with a mini mum guarantee of £4 weekly. Truly not an unreasonable demand, espec ially when we understand that it is not a weekly wage, but merely a guarantee that the men ...
Fremantle fragments [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 18 July 1920
Fremantle fragments Amongst visitors to Jandakot on Saturday was Mr. Ernest Cole, and half Fremantle wants to know why he was out there. a m. * Whilst Mr. J. J. Higham was out interviewing one of his tenants on Monday he asked the young hope ful of the house why wasn't he at school. 'Because,' replied the boy, 'I am not going to 'scab' on my teacher.' ^ Guess J. J. got some shock! ? ? ? Enter the new secretary of the Tally Clerks, Charles O'Meara. En ter, Charlie, even ithrough the door must be made wider. ? » ♦ An aspirant for executive honours in the Tallies is said to be onj& of the worst offenders, in leaving al most finished jobs to take on a big paying proposition. He worked the joke twice in one week on one oc casion, returning to the previous job. . . This is in defiance of all union rules and comradely spirit, as ithere are men at the 'point' who rarely get picked up from week to week. ? ? ?

THE JERGER OUTRAGE Hughes' Lettres-de-Catchet Is Any Man Safe? [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 18 July 1920
THE JERGER OUTRAGE Hughes' Lettres-de-Catchet Is Any Man Safe? Through many centuries of bloody struggle, men fought and died to win what we call 'British liberty' to-day. That liberty consists— on paper— in a number of Acts of Par liament, such as Magna Charta, Ha beas Corpus, the Bill of Rights. But liberty can never exist on paper. It can only live in the hearts of a people who will permit tyranny to be practised neither upon themselves, nor the stranger within their gates. 'While there breathes on earth a slave, Are ye really free or brave?' Liberty cannot be preserved while men may be deprived of their free dom without open public and con stitutional trial. At least, thafs what Habeas Cor pus says. But Wm. Morris Hughes thinks otherwise. He went to look on while other people fought for liberty in Flanders. Then he came back and donned a ha't he had no legal or moral right to wear, and proceeded to abolish liberty in Aus tralia. During the war very many peo ple were interned wit...

CAUSE AND EFFECT. 'Several Members of Parliament discovered on Wednesday last that, owing to the Civil Service strike, the payment of their salaries would be hung up indefinitely.' — Fact. 'On Wednesday last Mr. T.

Ceesar's GHost. Hughes Gets The Horrors [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 18 July 1920
Caesar's Ghost. HtigHes Gets The Horrors. 'A significant interlude occurred during the debate in the Federal Parliament on 'the Labour Party's no-confidence motion. Here it is: 'Mr. Hughes said that there was no more chance of Julius Caesar standing at the end of the table than of the motion being carried. 'Mr. Tudor: Julius Caesar will not stand there, but Charlie McGrath will walk in. (Labour cheers.) 'Mr. Hughes: Well, I would rather see Julius Caesar.' Never did Willam Morris Hughes speak a more pregnant truth. Of course he'd rather see Julius Caesar; he never did Caesar any harm. 'Twas Brutus, not Hughes, thai murdered Caesar. Why should Hughes fear Caesar? But Charlie McGrath '. There in the flesh before him, more terrible than any ghost. Charles McGrath, whom he had counted politically dead and en tombed, recalled to life by the Voice of the People. And over his head in letters of flame is writ Hughes own doom — the portentous figures, 1,000 Majority! Angels and fiends, avert...

THE PREMIER SEEKS SANCTUARY. After the strenuous week of Civil Servant strife which has kept him wide awake, Jimmy the Premier has retired to his hollow log at Northam for the week-end to sleep off the fa tigue.

the Sunday mirror PERTH, SUNDAY, JULY 18th., 1920 BALLARAT BY-ELECTION Nothing could do more to convince the public that the Hughes Government and their dwindling tail of supporters have suffered a stinging blow at the hands of the BaUarat electors than the preter natural anxiety of the inspired Press daquers of Nationalism to prove that the result doesn't matter a rap. The critical-minded citizen will find little difficulty in applying Hamlet's inimitable formula, 'Me- thinks the lady doth protest o'er much.' How great a prize the BaUarat seat was esteemed by the Minis terial Party may be gathered from the measures adopted by, their leader to retain it. A few days prior to polling day, Mr. Tudor moved a no-confidence motion against the Government. His object, without doubt, was to arraign the King's advisors before the highest tribunal of the land; to present, for the edification of the public, the case for the King's Opposition. This is a course which the Lead er of the Opposition...
MITCHELL'S BOGEY MAN. Threat (!) of General Dissolution. "Mirror" Explains and Expounds. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 18 July 1920
MITCHELL'S BOGEY MAN. Threat (!) of General Dissolution. 'Mirror' Explains and Expounds. Premier Mitchells press appears to be trying to work up a scare as to what may happen if he is forced to resign. The resignation of the Premier, which means only the change of one Minister, certainly won't make any difference to the position. It will merely mean that the Government has capitulated and the new Premier will, of course, concede the Civil Ser vants what they demand. The idea of the present Government suppor ters permitting a general election — unless forced by the Country Party over matters not connected with the strike— before next year is ridicu lous. They have everything to gain by postponing the contest as long as possibley-until the stench of their stupid impossibilism is merged in the soothing odours of time. But si&pose they do? Suppose, recreant like, they desert their posts in the storm — a storm of their own brewing? What happens? Does the administration of State a...
