CRIMINAL THIMBLE-RIGGING. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 12 May 1921
CRIMINAL THIMBLE-RIGGING. v It wbuid be lmpo&rSioie to point ' ,«flit sériaient die grave and nunicious i scandals which tne autocratic and contemptuous system which the Gov- ernment imposes on the ïerntory is responsible for. Wt refer more par- ticularly to the administration of health and sanitary affairs. The autocratic power vested in, or as- sumed by, the heaü of the health Department on the one hand, and\thc absolute powerlessness of the civic representatives of the people,? and of the people them elves cn the other, are matters of stand- ing comment. Bm no .-»Le takes the lead on the road to reform, part- ly through recreant indifference and partly through what appears to be the unsophisticated and inexperienced methods of those who would probab-' I3 be active, useful citizens anywhere else. One can hear complaints of a startling nature at every street cor- ner, at every bar and wherever folks congregate, yet these scandals, or re- puted scandals arc allowed to go on ...
THE STRUGGLE IN IRELAND. A WORKERS MOVEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 12 May 1921
THE STRUGGLE IN IRELAND. A WORKERS'" MOVEMENT. í ¡ The recurrent series of assassina- . tions and 'reprisals" is the most dramatic Icaturc of the struggle in Ireland. But of even deeper conse- quence is the slow strangling of the eco'.oniic Líe of the Irish people. The closi ~¿ of the íailways and the des- truction of crops and creameries are having-and arc designed tot have -the same effect upon Ireland as the war-time blockade upon Germany. Step bjr step the economic life of i the country is being destroyed. Between September, 1919, and September, 1920, ninety villages and country towns were shot up, and in many cases completely wrecked. Between Junc,N 1920, and October, 1920, thirty creameries were des- troyed. Over large areas rickyards have beer set on fire by the forces of the Crown. The destruction of the hay , makes the winter feeding of cattle impossible. Even rich rural areas are threatened \yith starvation. A nation is being murdered under our eyes-not in Armenia, but wit...
THE " REPARATIONS " OUT. RAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 12 May 1921
THE " REPARATIONS " OUT- RAGE. It is obvious from the "reparation" decision arrived at by the Allies (America not being represented) in Paris the other day that the future peace of the world, and the welfare, if not existence, of millions of cul- tured people, are to be ruthlessly sacrificed to serve the miserable per- sonal ends of two of the most notor- ious political opportunists and ad- venturers the world has ever known - Briand of France and LJoyd George of Britain^ Briand has rio majority in the French Parliament, and his political existence depends entirely upon the EXTRAVAGANCE AND RUTH LESSNESS OF THE DEMANDS HE MAKES UPON GERMANY. Lloyd George is about to fight anot- her British election and if he can persuade the British people that he is going to extort thousandsjof mil- lions of gold from the empty Ger- man Treasury he stands a good chance * of winning another election on hypocrisy, bluff and imposture. The " reparations " demanded from our late enemy can never be paid...
PILOT OR PIRATE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 14 May 1921
PILOT OR PIRATE. Sydney "D.T." speaks of the su pression of W. M. Hughes by his chivalrous "Nationalist" friends as "dropping the pilot." Doubtless sonfeV in the irony of their natures, would use the express- ion, "Dropping 'the pirate." But think of it! This idol of the "Win the War" brigade; this King of the diggers"; this Joss of-the Junkers, exposed to the indignity of being "dropped" by his leal and trusty crew! And with as tittle ceremony as the man of the galley would drop a tainted carcase overboard! How are the mighty fallen! For the "Nationalist" junta (which,1 though in power, never had a major- ity of its own, but made use of Hughes and his fellow decadents to save its own skin) one feels nothing but contempt. i. At the same time few will waste their pity on the man who went back on his party and principles, and is now being chased by the inexorable Nemesis of retribution which no £25,000 can buy off. These are no times for mincing words over the blunderers and plunderer...
WHO STARTED THE ROW? [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 14 May 1921
WHO STARTED THE ROW ? The ex-Kaiser has been making some uncomfortable remarks about the start of the war that should call for a bit of explanation on the part of Britain and France. He says the English fleet was ready in June, and the English money arrangements made still earlier. Those whci re- j member the winter of 1014 know that ; even in Australia there was strange murmers and mutterings long before the murder in Bosnia put a spark to the powder-mâgazine of Central Eur- ope. Then France refused topromise to remain neutral in the event of old Francis Joseph gètting to grips with the Czar. Had both France and Ger- many remained quiet, the Russians would have been .victorious ; but the revolution woul have come along just the same. THE PRESS. Were I asked to name the most powerful institution in the world, 1 should answer, almost before the question was. completed s "Thc Pressé j Much more powerful than army, navy, parliament or church; than all of>Uuna put together! ^ ence.
