The Reminiscences of a Revolutionary By One of Koltshak. Konnell's persons whose Sole Aim is to Destroy Konstitutional Authority. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 31 October 1920
The Reminiscences of a Revolutionary By One of Soltshak. Konnell's 'Persons whose Sole Aim is to Destroy Konstitutional Authority. I awakened on Monday morning with my mind made up I would murder the Mayor. I had gone to bed, sad and des pondent, but now that resolute pur nose had returned to me, I was bliss fully buoyant once more, and as I took my matutial 'tub' I warbled blithly. After breakfast I proceeded to sharpen my razor, to clean my re volver, and pack my pocket case with bombs. The chloroform and strychnine I placed in my vest pocket and wound a rope around my body. All was now ready for the doughty deed. '' I proceeded down the street to the Town Hall; there I espied the Mayor. He was putting up a flag at half mast for the martyrs of Ire land. The Mayor saw me coming, and whinnied with terror. I fired at him twice, but he sidestepped to the right. I had expected him to keep to the left, and so I missed, and the pursuit began. As we dashed along the Terrace I flung two bo...
Belmont Bangs [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 31 October 1920
Belmont Bangs (By 'Solon.') Motorists 1458 and 2354 are hereby requested to slow down some. Last Sunday afternoon their pace was over the odds. We are all awaiting and expecting a smash one of these days, and then the traffic inspectors will wake up. What about those unlighte^ vehi cles that are nightly to be seen go ing through Belmont? Is the Law asleep? On Tuesday night last one resi dent counted 16 carts that were be ing driven minus a light between the hours of 9 and 10. One cannot blame the local police, who have a very big district to con trol. But why, oh why, Mr. Mc Kenna, do you not send some of your recruits out? The local handsome man contest is still causing great excitement. 'Pod.' Webb( the local metalli cian, is spoken of as a likely win ner. Others in the running are Geo. Tighe, Bill Skinner. Paddy Bolger, and Moses Axtain. A party of Burswood picnicers were reported missing recently, hav ing missed the train they had 'to walk many miles before they came across a co...

Yapp Billy Angwin Gives the Fanners Home Truths. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 31 October 1920
Yapp Silly Angwin Gives the Fanners Home Truths. Hon. W. C. Angwin: I am tired of the taunts continually thrown ac ross the Chamber to the effect that members on this side want to sac rifice the farmer. When the mem ber for Geraldton was speaking to night the Premier said, You want the farmer thrown over, so that everyone can get at him.' I say that when the farmer, requires as sistance, members on this side are the first to go to his aid. We sav ed the country at a time when it was necessary to do so. We had no intention, however, of sacrificing other persons in the community when normal conditions again pre vailed. Mr. Harrison: That is the proper attitude to take up. Hon. W. C. Angwin: When the necessity arises, and it is in the in terests of the State to do so, mem bers on this side of the House are the first to Tender assistance to the farmers. We have no desire to throw over the farmer. We are all one, and intended to act honestly towards every pftrtion of the com munity. The ...
FALLS INTO VAT OF ACID. Chemical Worker May Die—Friend Burned in Rescue. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 31 October 1920
FALLS INTO VAT OF ACID. Chemical Worker May Die— Friend Burned in Rescue.. ? *j ? While working over a vat in the chemical works of Charles Pfeiser, Brooklyn, Joseph McGuire fell into the acid and received burns that doctors say may prove fatal. Mc Guire was rescued by Joseph Nev lin, a fellow employee, who wrapped his hands in articles of clothing, wound his legs about a rail at thu edge of the vat, and swinging head down, pulled him to' safety. Nev lin's arms were burned severely. They put the acid on these blokes all right. Their boss will no doubt put the acid on the rest of the com munity to care for and keep them while they are getting .well or being got ready for a 6 x 2. Bet your life he won't pay for it if there is a chance of wriggling out. Yet the boss' big excuse for being a boss is known as the 'Indemnity against Risk' argument. Now, Mr. Bossed, who ran and suffered the risk in the case above Quoted?
SCOTLAND. London. Oct. 30. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 31 October 1920
SCOTLAND. London. Oct. 30. The extension of the activituf. of the Irish Republican army to Scot land is creating great alarm in offi cial circles. It is believed that ex tensive seizures of arms and explo sives have taken place, not only in Glasgow, but in Liverpool and Man chester as well, and that large quan tities of these materials have reach ed the Sinn Fein. Reports of such happenings are frequent in the smal ler provincial journals, but so far the news has been suppressed in the London dailies.
MR. O'GRADY TROUNCES LLOYD-GEORGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 31 October 1920
MR. O'GRADY TROUNCES LLOYD-GEORGE. Mr. James O'Grady, Labour M.P. for South-East Leeds, has sent the following to the Prime Minister: 'Dear Prime Minister, — I am thus addressing you because it is the cus tom of members of the House of Commons so to do. But I have misgivings in so doing in these terms owing to the fact that on* of my race, the Lord Mayor of Cork, is languishing at Brixton Prison, and will die if you do not intervene and order, his release. 'You claim to be a Celt! When ever did a Celt resist an appeal for mercy ! A Traitor to the Race. 'If ever he did, then he was a traitor to the race and to the^ psy chology of the race. 'Lord Mayor MacSwiriey is a bro ther of ours sentenced to two years' imprisonment for a political offence. If your own offences in that direc tion received the deserts that your ?opponents of twenty or more recent years declare they deserve, you should be committed to the torture qf British prisons for the rest mi your natural life. Deliberate Murd...
The Sunday Mirror PERTH, SUNDAY, OCTOBER 31th., 1920 FREEDOM AND EMPIRE [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 31 October 1920
CN Sunday mirror ' PJBHTH. SUNDAY. OCTOBER 81th.. 1920 FREEDOM AND EMPIRE 'Freedom linked with Empire' is a fine sounding phrase. It is applied liberally to the British Empire to-day by speakers at school flag-saluting stunts ; it was equallv applied in ancient tunes to the Em perors of Rome— and probably was equally applicable, or inapplicable. No doubt the Egyptians said it of the Pharoahs, and the Chinese of Genais TO1a.11 . The deification of rulers appears to be an inbred human failing; yet despite the universality of the practice, and the persistence with which it crops up, alike in Monarchies and in Republics— sot forgetting Soviet States-^a sneaking sense of shame at their own toadyism ever raises its head, and it is this sneaking shame that finds - expression in cant phrases of the 'Freedom linked with Empire' order. Stripped of the glamour of crown and robe and of sounding phrase, which serve admirably to callous the neck of that dull beast— The People — to the yoke of ser...
West Guildford Howls [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 31 October 1920
West Guildford Howls \j — (By 'Woodbine.') All ye defaulting ratepayers hurry up with your pieces of .silver to pay your rates before the Roads Board takes legal proceedings to recover same. The Board also endorsed the City Council's agreement concerning, cae Municipal Workers' Union as from the end of this month. The local branch of the Austra lian Labour Party held its anmtai meeting in the Roads Board Hall on Tuesday evening. Since the downfall of the prohi bitioner in Victoria, they fancy their dark horse would score better as a 'Protestant' than as a dry candidate. Shades of Luther! It will be remembered that Martin Luther is author of the well-known couplet: 'Who loves not women, wine and song, a fool remains his lifetime long.' Our new political party, viz., the Protestant Federation, under the wing of National Liberal Pearce, in tend running a candidate for Guild ford. A little bird whispers his name is Berry. Members were very wrath about the manner in which the branch has ...
A DELICATE INVITATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 31 October 1920
A DELICATE INVITATION. We invite Mr. Lawson to enter publicly with us into a discussion on the question of his fitness to con trol a female staff. We say he should not hold such a position for a moment. We invite him to com municate to us the full facts con cerning the visit recently paid him by the father of a typiste employed in -the W.S.S.D. We throw our col umns open to him to defend himself. We know perfectly well that talk on this score is the favourite tattle of the W55.D.- and half the town be sides. It is no random shot on our part, Mr. Lawson. We know all about this little affair — we re gret that its mention recalls pain ful, memories to you — and we have^ heard whispers of quite a thing of* two besides. Little incidents lo cated out in the sweet scenery of Rottnest Isle, for example, and the utter disgust that little episode earned you in the nostrils of a bro ther officer. Don't worry Lawson, old man. We have your measure, and the mea sure- of your mean-spirited, sneak ...

Stud Lawson -, DIDDLESOME O.S.O. A MASHING MAJAH— PLAYS DUX AND DRAX— WITH A PUB UC DEPARTMENT-MUCH TO TAXPAYER'S FINAN CIAL DISMAY. **»*« There was once a time when the slimy trail of the 'Tothersider' did ' not disfigure the face of the land. There was! In that day the local Fremantle rags used to chronicle, the day's news in terms like these: 'Two Vic /torians arrived in The Port yester : day. Nothing has been missed as yet.' These days remarks of that sort )F are not dreamed 6i. We are jso used ''to .smaller or larger fragments of : the public property being filched, pinched, and purloined that we don't even worry to notice the 'country of origin' of the suspected ' sneak-thief. '? . * -Ther,e is. a man named Lawson ?who 'engineers' the Water and Sew . erage Department. Engineers it well; believe us! jWe have no desire to fully ex ' pose Mr. Lawson.

IRELAND [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 31 October 1920
IRELAND ? v— Note: Blood-letting, burnings, pil lage and baiting are in the plan of Britain's campaign in Ireland to re store law and order, and to concili ate the Irish. Brave Rosin Dhn, 'tis sad to see The bloooVtean in your eyes. We thought your Night and Trag edy, Your bitter griefs and sighs, Your long lone trysts with death, aad worse, Had gone for aye the way That wrong must go, and every curse That meets God's light of day. The nps that swore that right would be God's Monitor where'er The English flag waved full and tree Have changed, and .now forswear The pledges that, awhile, now gone, Were stamped with England's name. Might rules— and Bight is over thrown, And made a thing of shame. Lift up your head, and dry your tears; The hours are moving slow, But this old world, grown wise with years, May strike a stunning blow— A newer race is springing up, With red, red rebel strain, And they'll not drain the slave lord's cup, Nor drag Mb freighted wain. By Godfe grim law all men m...
Midland Notes [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 31 October 1920
Mifad Notes Road-racing experts are still won dering why Ted Brindley pulled out of the Beverley to Perth. Alex. Dalziel is Midland's most popular boy. H. R. Oakley, Jazz Expert, of Perth, is spending a few quiet (?) days on holiday in Midland Junc tion. V Dave James is the one man in the town who never growls— except at the high cost of living. Archie Whiteman, a la mode, has a great idea of colour schemes, inas much as he would like to ? see a Royal Blue X, with the tank paint ed a bright red. Archie believes it would relieve the blue. Charlie Chadwick is untrue to his Midland divinity again. Now, Charlie, after what you told the boys the other evening you should be different really. Jim Keraac, of the W1.G.R, has invented a striped paint (stare in cluded). Mr. J. Flint is now riding an Ex celsior motor cycle, no doubt in contradiction of a 'Mirror' par.
