APPEAL FOR FAIR TREATMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 25 June 1921
, APPEAL FOR FAIR TREATMENT. 'Bono': From my point or view, after many years' of service both with clubs and the League, there appears room to ask for fairer treatment of cur umpires, both by the public and those who eit upon the controlling body. Many of those alleged experts hurling Mi^«icm ot mon \fftin -fin their UtlllOSt under trying conditions to give a iair interpretation of the rules. It seems to be extremely ridiculous ror these critics to assert various men are In competent, in fact or thefact they themselves would get an awful jolt if subjected to an examination In playing rules. Most of our umpires have worked hard and faithfully in the matches entrusted to them, only to be yelled at by people who nave not made a carerul study or the rules, and many men who have an Idea or these rules smile blandly at some advice thrown to Carter, Collins, and Cooper, who must go home horribly depressed and ?roresee all sorts of trouble resulting from their lack or knowledge.

Axford V.C. Charged [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 25 June 1921
AXltrt, V.C. CHUN 'Spartacus': 'From what (know of Axford, in Kalgoorlie, -and of his temperament, I -must* believe - the evidence of the police.' Thus Resident Magistrate Walter summed up in the case against Ax ford, V.C., on Friday, and on this, for it could not have been on the evidence, which was all in 'Axford s favour, a conviction was recorded against that gallant soldier, and considering the bigoted antipathy «i the past of the presiding magis trate to anyone connected with La bour, the result of the frame-up on Axford was almost a foregone con clusion. Inspector O'Halloran appeared for the police, and Mr. Thomas Walker for Axford. In the first place,- the police altered the charge, and Mr. Walker objected to the vague sweep ing nature of it. Sergeant Johnston (about 16 st.j. the hero who arrestedi the 9-st. V.C, gave first evidence, and swore that Axford was singing, hooting, and shouting, that he defied him, and tried to hit him, said first he was a ringleader, and then st...

Generals on the Terror in Ireland Turk and Zulu Out of it [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 25 June 1921
Generals on the Terror in Ireland Turk and Zulu Out of it The following is a selection from the publicly-expressed views of Bri- tish soldiers on the methods of the British Government in Ireland: — Major-General Sir Hubert Gough, G.C.M.G., K.C.B., K.C.V.O., in a letter published in the Press of 2nd March, 1921, referring to the out- &nbsp; rages of the Crown Forces in Ire- land, said: — "Law and order has given place to a bloody and brutal anarchy, in which the armed agents of the Crown violate every law in aimless and vindictive and insolent sava- gery....... &nbsp; &nbsp; "England has departed further from her own standards and fur- ther from the standards even of any nation in the world, not ex- cepting the Turk and Zulu, than has ever been known in history before." Lieut-General Sir Henry Lawson, K.C.B., in his report (published December 31, 1920) to the Peace with Ireland Council, who had dele- gated him to visit Ireland, referred to the reprisals by Cro...
IRISH SELF-DETERMINATION. [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 25 June 1921
IRISH SELF-DETERMINATION. The first State Convention of the Self-Determination for Ireland League of Australia (W.A. Section) met to-day at the Hibernian Hall, and is sitting to- night. We are given to understand that the agenda paper was a formidable one, but would be finalised late in the evening. Some 80 delegates, includ- ing about a score of women, from all over the state were present. The proceedings were most enthusiastic. An announcement appears elsewhere &nbsp; directing attention to a public meeting — a demonstration — organised by the Self-Determination for Ireland League of Australia, which is being held to- morrow (Sunday) afternoon at 3 o'- clock at the Melrose Theatre. Promi- nent speakers will address an antici- pated theatreful and an "overflow" of sympathisers for Ireland in her struggle for national emancipation. The war was fought for the rights of small na- tions. Ireland is the only "white" country on the face of the globe denied the right of national s...
Wowserailitis! [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 25 June 1921
Wowserailitis ! "Aby" : Mrs. Cowan, M.L.A., has soon made her presence felt. Wish- ing to visit the fields on a propa- ganda stunt, the acid was put on the railway people, who promptly start the Trans off at 9 p.m. to suit the wowseristic tastes of W.A.'s first female legislator. We think you're a long way out, "Aby," because Mrs. Cowan has no influence with the Railway Depart- ment yet, so far as we know. In any case the 9 p.m. Trans train is most inconvenient to travellers, and we think 11 p.m. would suit all con- cerned better. We quite realise that the 9 p.m. stunt ensures travel- lers missing a last spot at the re- freshment rooms, but all the same, it runs at a time that spoils the evening for the people going and the farewelling friends as well. Surely the railway people ought to re-consider the alteration from this aspect. Anyhow, for the Lord's sake, leave Mrs. Cowan out of it, won't we get enough when the 'Ouse sits?— Ed J
A Hotel Dispute [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 25 June 1921
A Hotel Dispute Disputes often arise from very trivial causes, some so small as to make them seem almost ridiculous. There is one hotel, however, in Perth, which stands a credit to the fair city of the Swan, about which there cannot be any dispute, into which pours constantly a stream of confident visitors for accommoda- tion and refreshment, and from which every guest who leaves does so reluctantly and fully satisfied. That hotel is the SAVOY, situated most centrally in Hay -street, and presided over by Mr. J. J. RYAN, whose highly-trained staff are ar- tists in their own particular line. Chefs, waiters, house staff, bar at- tendants, all combine to make a visit to the Savoy a memorable one, for attention, superb service, and general comfort and considera- tion. There's no dispute about that.

The Health of Communities IMPORTANCE OF SUNLIGHT—PURE AIR AND WATER. [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 2 July 1921
Tie Benin ef c«n ?nities — u — IMPORTANCE OF SUNLIGHT PURE AIR AND WATER. During many years, and especially during last batking season, many municipal councils, soldiers' associa tions, and waterside meetings -.f civi lians, have unanimously passed reso lutions, which recommend to other communities and bodies, trie health giving and life-rescue methods pub licly demonstrated gratis by the pre sident »f the Life-saving Society of ~W.A., Mr. F.

England's Failure [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 2 July 1921
nfiars Future 'Why England Fails in Ireland' is the title of a series of articles by Mr. Wm. Hard, the eminent Ameri can journalist, the xirst of which ap pears in the April number of the Metropolitan, a leading U.S. month ly. They are the fruits of Mr. Hard's investigations in Ireland!, extending over several months What struck the writer forcibly on his first visit to London was British silence about Ireland, and a Scotch man said to hi n, 'You know why the English can't understand the Irish? The English have no sense of nationality.' In Mr. Hard's view, 'the conservative Englishman is a bit outside nationalism because he is a believer in a sort of composite im perialism. And the radical English man of the Labour Party — though he vigorously protests against the methods of the British military in Ireland — is even more outside na tionalism, because he is a believer In a sort of international proletarian ism. ... I began soon to feel rather amazed that with a Britain so cap able of...
