Labour Notes [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 24 October 1920

Lab cur Notes ? u ? (by 'Spartacus') The speaker at the Literary Insti tute on Sunday night will be Mr. Walter Dwyer. The question, as becomes real Irishmen, is one of the 'Justification for an Irish Repub lic.' We understand that l Miss Mav Holman is providing a musical programme of a purely Irish char acter. All good Irishmen and those possessing a sense of kindjiess and justice will attend to hear Mr. Dwyer. Tommy Walker, MIA, delivered the goods at the Literary Institute last Sunday evening. The* Labour lawyer told ? bis audience in plain language that the question of crim inality was largely a question for the dqctor and not the jailer, the in dividual not being solely respon sible for his temperment and gen eral mental outlook on life and so ciety in general is brutally punish ed for doing that which he cannot help. C^me to think of it the pre sent system of jails and punishment is on a par with flogging a kid for getting measles. A certain firm of tinsmiths wbuld do well to r...

Hospital Scandal THE LUNACY ACT AMENDMENT. A RUBBER-STAMP MINISTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 24 October 1920

Hospital Scandal THE LUNACY ACT AMEND MENT. A BUBBER-STAMP MINISTER. In a weak and unimpressive . ten minutes of rambling talk, that harm less and incapable gentleman (Mr. Broun), who holds down the job of Colonial Secretary, introduced the Bill to amend the Lunacy Act, pro mised after -the shocking disclosures of a select committee last year. The measure can only be describ one way as A Wash Out. It is undoubtedly drafted, or at least approved by that brutal Prus sianist, the Inspector-General, who has taken the best of care that not one jot of his despotic and tyranni cal rule shall be interfered with thereby. After an exhaustive, in quiry, by which the head of the Claremont Hospital stood condemn ed by facts as culpable, if not worse, of the appalling state of the institu tion, the committee recommended: The reinstatement of members of staff dismissed during isolation. That regulation* re fire be complied with. , That croton oil be not given without special order from a doctor. T...

The Grand Guignol. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 24 October 1920

The Grand Guignol. — . — ? f The present theatrical erase in Paris is known as the Grand Guig noir ^t is a night's performance consisting of 3 or more playlets, of vhich one is an awe and hair-raising drama, guaranteed to chill the blood of the audience, and the others ordinary sketches or comedies. London has instituted the idea, and at 'The Little Theatre' has a grand Goignol of its own. The Mirror does not believe Perth should lag behind these tar oS insignificant cites, and proposes to initiate the idea here with the three plays hereunder. We have striven for variety by mak in gone of them a classical drama, and invite any theatrical manage ment, or the Repetory Society, to pull on the idea and the plays. PLAY NO. 1.

Repudiation Direct GOVERNMENt DISH0N0UR THEIR PLEDGES TO RETURNED SOLDIERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 24 October 1920

Repudiation Direct GOVERNMENT DISHONOUR THEIR PLEDGES TO RETURNED SOLDIERS. It has become a trite recollection to us the promise of a new world for the men who fought and suffered in the war. 'Nothing, nothing, is too good for our brave - boys,' screamed the soolers, whilst the war raged. But now that peace is with us the very same persons will go to any lengths to prevent the returned men getting anything that interferes with the Sacred Right and Property qr the Privilege of Profits. wnen xne juemoer lor oeraiaxon (Mr. Wilcock) presented to Parlia ment a petition from the Returned Soldiers of the Geraldton district, asking 'that legislation should be introduced to facilitate the settle ment of Discharged Soldiers on the Pastoral Leases of the Murchison,' little opposition was expected to the proposal in view of the pledges made to the soldiers who were going away. But -didn't they just? Listen to some of the ? . The Premier leading: — 'To carry this motion means that we must resume...

Scene II.— A Hall in the. Palace. Caius Scadonius sits on his throne dressed as Apollo, and sur rounded by slaves and rx-lonels. On his shoulder .two doves, and at' his feet musical instrumai ts. The model of a large, super six chariot stands at the back of the hall. En ter Condonius breathless ^_ Cond. (saluting) : Hail Caesar! Scad.: Cut out the rough stuff; .Words don't waste ! your haste? Cond. : A common soldier, who's condemned to- death, Appeals to you, that's why I'm out of breath ! Scad. : VThat's that? A . common soldier J I should smile; Of my six hundred of the Golden Mile?

G.P.O. Stamp Counter [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 24 October 1920

fc.P.O. Stamp Counter The Mirror doesn't, like repri manding anyone, especially when the party concerned is of the fair sex. All the same, we consider it necessary to hint that unless some little more courtesy is handed out with stamps at the G.P.O. we shall have something to say in a much nnner tone of voice. For the present we will let it stay at that and those concerned should accept ™ ^ 'm* tbe spixit {t is ^ven. The job referred to is trying, we know^ and we also know how many boneheads there are at 1a«r» n,,* at the same time there's a happy medium for public servants to work on. . ?« Lavender writes: The time is rot ten ripe for some improvement in the Midland Junction sanitary ser vice — the hours at which the dray works makes one wonder if the driver is a nightman or a day man.

Wit by the Hon. John Scaddan [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 24 October 1920

Wit by the Hon. John Scaddan Jones (Fremantle, on the Polide Estimates) : The Commissioner has never held the respect of his men. Premier: That is not so; they do respect h''. Jones: I can understand some of the men, who are forced to be sycophants to the Commissioner, agreeing with that, but let the Pre mier get their candid opinion, and he win perhaps find it is different Scaddan: Well the men would not meet him where you- did. IN THE URINAL. y ^ « Jones : The remark is worthy ot the man who made it, but it is un worthy of a Minister of the Crown. (Scaddan's scurrilous interjection was considered by the Hansard reporter too bad to dictate to the lady typiste; he left it blank, and Slled it in after in ink.) . ,

Ferocious Fordyce Francis Street Waste [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 31 October 1920

Ferocious Fordyce Francis Street Waste That branch of the Public Service or public burden which is glorified by having for its Ministerial head the /renegade, mad militarist, Spats Pearce, has always been a hot-bed of sabotage against the unfortunate taxpayer -who is graceously permit ted to work, year in year out, for the privilege of keeping a horde of ar rogant loafing colonels, majors, cap tains, etc., all bent on 'making the world safe for democracy,' which is, in their view, simply providing them with the means of getting an easy living on the backs of ithe workers without giving any labour in re turn. The Defence Department has always been shockingly over staffed and woefully incompetent. A veritable sink for the revenue ex torted from any youth who happens to earn two quid a week. Thou sands of workers and their wives have to deprive themselves of the necessaries of life in order to ap pease the taxgatherer. and these sac rifices are made for the purpose of keeping an army o...

WANTED TO PAWN NIGHTIE. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 31 October 1920

WANTED TO PAWN NIGHTIE. 'We have some mighty queer things brought to us for loans,' says an assistant at the Welfare Loan Office, 'and we lend on anything within reason. But when it comes to lingerie we draw the line. A pretty girl came in here to-day and asked if I would consider a loan on a georgette nightie. She had a package about the size of a cake of soap with her, and I asked her if that were the article. 'Oh, no,' she said. 'I have it at home. You see, I want to bring it upon my way to work to-morrow morning and get the money on it, because there is going to be a wonderful shoe sale in town and pay day .isn't until Satur day. It's real pretty and expen sive—why it cost 32 dollars.' 'Of course, I told her I was very sorry, but a nightie — even a georgette one ' that cost 32 dollars— wasn't a very god security for a loan.' You bet her best boy would not raise any 'ow just because she pre ferred to wear shoes only. This pawn broker wasn't a hald head, or he would have assisted ...

Realities of War [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 31 October 1920

Realities of War The following is an extract from the above-mentioned book, writ ten by Philip Gibbs, the famous war correspondent: — Australians slouched up the street of the Three Pebbles with a grim look under their wide-bnmmed hats, having come down from Pozieres, where it was always hell in the days of the Somme fighting. I liked the look of them, dusty up to the eyes in summer, muddy up to their ears in winter — these gipsy fellows, scornful of discipline for discipline's sake, but desperate fighters, as sim ple as children in their ways of thought and speech (except for frightful oaths), and looking at life, this Jife of war, and this life in Amiens, with frank curious eyes and a kind of humorous contempt for death, and desease, and English Tommies, and French girls, and 'the whole damned show,' as they called it. They were lawless except, for the laws to which their souls gave allegiance. They behaved as the equals of all men, giving no respect to generals or staff officers,...

EAST MONET. Swindles House Hunters. Owner Resping Coin by New Game. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 31 October 1920

EAST MONET. Swindles House Hunters. Owner Seapirur Coin bv New Game. Taking advantage of the housing shortage, a Newark swindler has de vised a new flim-flam same. He walks around a house just being completed with an air of ownership wnen ne sees any one looking at the house, and sometimes enters and asks workmen questions^ then walks out. Women in search of homes conclude he is the owner, and beg the first chance of renting an apart men. 'Ill have to have a £20 de posit,' the swindler replies, and. the house hunter sometimes pays the money. Three Newark women were swindled thus recently. This looks a good way to earn enough brass for a good holiday. Ought to go well round Perth just at present. If you do try. it, don't say the Sunday Minor told you, or else they might give us the holiday (at PremanuD).

ANOTHER PROTEST. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 31 October 1920

ANOTHER PROTEST. To the Editor. Sir, — Those of the community who are in the nab't of attending race meetings are, without question, up against it these days. Increas ed -fares -and a good deal -of indifier ent racing ,are big handicaps, but when, in addition, the railway facili ties are such as weie. available last week-end, it is noy wonder ' that words fail adequately to express the punters' disgust. Under ordinary circumstances, the majority, having looked in vain for the long-delayed improvement in train service and accommodation, are content to view the matter with a philosophic calm. But. on a holiday it is not only the same old devotees of the racing game who wend their way course wards, but a great number of others who like to see good horses sporting silk, and make a practice of attend- ' ing headquarters in the hope of en joying a decent day's 'outing. Those people, in the hope of thereby ob taining a small degree of comfort, purchase first class tickets at an outrageous ...

ILL AT 11l, SCORNS DOCTOR. Never Had Medical Aid, Mrs. Le Barron Tells Friends. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 31 October 1920

ILL AT 111, SCORNS DOCTOR. Never Had Medical Aid, Mrs. Le* Barron Tells Friends. Mrs. Lydia Le Barron, of High land-on-Hudson, said to be 111 years old, spurned offers of doctor's ser vices recntly, although compelled by ill-health to remain in bed.. rnenas summoned two physicians to treat her, but she would not em ploy them. Mrs.' Le Barron li»es alone in a little cottage and raises flowers and vegetables. 'I got along without a doctor all my life,' Mrs. Le Barron said, 'so why have one now? I'm pretty old, but I'm not( going to quit this earth yet.' Probably the fact that this lady didn't like doctors accounts for her still battling along. She is very selfish though. Never gave one of them a chance to lose an instrument or to collect some small parts to put in a bottle. Easy to know she -iev- er lived in Perth. ?

Rowing [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 31 October 1920

Rowing On Saturday last, the two princi pal rowing events of the year were set down for determination, viz., the Champion Eight and the Champion Sculls. Principal events because, the former counts the highest num ber of points towards the winning of the pennant, and is the last big race before the selection of the State's representatives to compete in the Commonwealth Champion ships, which are , held annually in each of the States's in its' turn; the ?latter because it is the blue ribbon event, and carries to the winner the title of prima donna oarsman of the State. The closing of the racing season saw the worst exhibition of sports manship ever witnessed in the his tory of rowing in the State, and dis played a littleness of mind in those of authority which is appalling, and which calls for attention from the Rowing Association. There have been six senior events this year. The Senior Paifs and Fours, the Chamoion Pairs. Fours. Eights, and Sculls, all of which have been won by the We...
