O.B.E. HONOURS? [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 7 November 1920
O.B.E. HONOURS? We desire to deny emphatically that any member of the Mirror staff has been awarded the O.B E It's a rotten, libellous lie. We nave been accused of bigamy, dirty doggrel, refusing to pay an income tax, loafing, murder, highway rob bery, agitating, and we don't mind, but never of getting an O.B.E. And it hurts us to think anyone would accuse us of it. O.B.E.'s! Hundreds of 'em! When we first saw It we thought it was a Trans, train passenger list. Poor old Aussie has suffered en ough from droughts, floods, and in competent or corrupt governments, but do we deserve this? When Senator Millen struck Lon don, the British Cabinet was too busy nursing an Irish headache, or, maybe, recovering from coalitis, to bother about Hughes' offsider's ar rival, so there were no Ministers to meet the mighty one, but Lord Mil ner sent his private secretary. We presume the office boy had a day off to attend his nineteenth grand mother's funeral. Watt! Watt! !

DEPARTMENTAL MANAGERS DISSATISFIED. WON'T HAVE UNION—ASSOCIATION TO BE FORMED. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 7 November 1920
DEPARTMENTAL MANAGERS DISSATISFIED. WON'T HAVE -UNION— ASSO- CIATION TO BE FORMED. (Exclusive to The Sunday Mirror). The departmental heads of |he big drapery firms have been read ing .the Sunday Mirorr. Pur% sug gestion that the bosses were getting more than* they were worth seems to have struck home. The cost of living apparently £as been sufficient ly high to stir even their deep-rooted snobberv. They begin to feel that they could do with more money. (How about the poor devils of girls I). They don't even care if the Harry Boans of WA. and their aristocratic sons in-law have less to spend on beei and skittles. Some of the more militant. of the heads are forming a Union (print er's mistake, beg pardon ! ) Associa tion. They say that living costs have gone up 100 per cent. Their wages haven't increased even to the ex tent of a saveloy and roll since 1914. Harry Bdan did promise his staff that when the affair was made into a company they would be consider ed. In fact he mentioned sh...
BELMONT MOTOR HOGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 7 November 1920
— . ? w ? BELMONT MOTOR HOGS. Dear Mirror, — As a constant read er of your fearless paper, I beg to endorse the remarks of your Bel mont 'Banger' re the terrific speed with which motor cars and motor cycles are driven along the Guild ford-road. On Sunday last, just after eleven o'clock, I went to the local newsavency to get my Mirror but in doing so I ran a great risk, as motor cycles, some with side cars at tached, went flying past at an aw ful rate of speed. These fiends seemed like devils let loose. They seemed to have gone mad; the noise they made was deafening, and in some cases the smoke they left be hind was blinding, making it dan gerous for anybody to think of crossing the road. Just imagine what would have happened if they had come along- a few minutes soon er, when several elders and children were on their way to church. No. Sir, 'Solon' has not written a' lie when he refers to this matter in such strong terms. But where, oh where, does our help lie? Who is to go into thi...
Rowing GEORGE ROGERS. Champion and Sportsman. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 7 November 1920
.Rowing GEORGE ROGERS. Champion and Sportsman. ' For the last twelve years tJie Championship of this State has been held by George Rogers- An Eng lishman by birth, brought up on the banks of the Thames, where he learned to row to such good effect that it is very unlikely that the rowing world of Australia contains a maruwith such an extensive win ning record. A carpenter and joiner by occupa. tion, the present champion arrived in this State in 1906, and very soon commenced to make his presence felt in rowing competitions, for within a penod of eighteen months we find him wresting from Jack Hill the title of champion. Unostentatious and of retiring dis position, Rogers hac so far refrain ed from doing any advertising, al ways maintaining that merit of to day should be the leading factor in classifying an oarsman, irrespective of his abilities of yesterday or last week. Throughout his career he has always been prepared to meet any and all comers, never taking any advantages, on the co...

Under the Lash RAILWAY AND TRAMWAY REFORM. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 7 November 1920
[?] RAILWAY AND TRAMWAY REFORM. Dear 'Mirror.'— True to the mot to 'Veluti in speculum,' your 'Open Letter' reflections on 'Papal' man agement of the railways are timely and to the point, and make it abun dantly evident that there is a world of trouble ahead for the local 'Vati- can,' in Wellington^street, if it fails to. read the writing on the -wall, and amend its antedeluvian methods 'quick and timely. Verily, as you say, the 'Pontiff,' who holds his court, as befits tradi tion, in the vicinity of a bridge— the Horseshoe Bridge— is, whether re garded as a crusader or a citizen, a decidedly and deservedly popular personage, but unless popularity is found combined with the functions of a reformer-ia very rare associa tion — it is not calculated to cut much ice. Moreover, in order to render reform thorough and com plete, it is absolutely essential that our 'Papa' should be in a position to command the entire confidence oi the 'faithful,' otherwise the long suffering, incessantly per...

"Bullant" McIntire [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 7 November 1920
'Bullant' Mclntire Our Sabbath contemporary, refer ring to the death of 'Bullant' Mc Intire, in their issue of 11th ult., said without any measure of respect, that the late journalist and pioneer left nothing save his blessing. In the complete knowledge of 'Bull- ^nt's' early work with the pioneers and his later association with the newspaper world' the statement is most inhuman and ridiculous. It exhibits a most complete ignorance of Mclntire's woik as an 'under- dog' battler, in the early days, when times were rough. 'Bullant' never turned away one whom he thought at all deserving. He hear tily extended the hand of friend ship to all comers, and by him all men were treated as honest until circumstances proved them other-* wise; he was undoubtedly one am ongst few. With him nothing was too much to do for the straggler whose luck went wrong. * His as sistance was offered and taken in all ways, including water supplies and the equipment of camels, both of which were extremely essenti...

(Good going, Fatta.) i Tommy Hawthorne has almost 1 mastered the. Wanneroo tickle-toe I stunt. The above is a very difficult dance to learn; it appears to be a cross between 'Bungs' dynamite dance and St. Vitus' dance. . If that paint and powder girl from Victoria' Park is' not careful she will soon strike trouble. $-o— At a recent dance she was a huge joke. Having danced with four different partners she bad left her paint brand on the coat of each. Thereafter she was barred.

BRASS BAT BUREAUCRATS. GERMANY. Public Officials Implicated. London. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 7 November 1920
BRASS HAT BUREAUCRATS. GERMANY. Public Officials Implicated. London. The Berlin correspondent of the London 'Daily Chronicle' reports that an extraordinary series of fin ancial and administrative scandals has been revealed in Germany. The police have arrested two former Goverment officials, Bbehmer and Hachn, on a charge of having jer petrated frauds in connection with import and export permits, involv ine millions of marks. Amther Government official, who was 'eliev- ed of his post, took away about 300, 000 marks of taxes which had been paid to his department, and he also abstracted documents relating to the taxation. Consequently the police are powerless. The Government bought recently 25,000,00 marks' worth of ammuni tion, and sold it a fortnight later for 200,000 marks. Subsequently it purchased the material in anotner town for 35,000,000 marks. . 'Bhe newspapers allege that the Department of Oils and Fats squan dered about £2,000.000,000 marks, and that frauds in connection wit...
Racing Comments COMMENTS ON TATTERSALL'S MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 7 November 1920
Raring Comments COMMENTS ON TATTERSALL'S MEETING. (By 'Cricklewood, Jun.') Tattersall's Club held its race meeting in ideal weather yesterday. The attendance was good. When Eurythmic's name was posted as the winner of the Fisher Plate great cheering resulted. The programme started with the Club Hurdles. Cocotea was scratch ed. leaving ten starters. Laroon was always favourite,- and was prac tically the only one backed, and tne best price procurable was 2 to 1 and finished at 6 to 1 7 to 1 bar one was always on offer. Laroon led all the way, and won easily by three lengths from Ramillies, who just beat Yarandale by a length for sec ond place. Silent Tom lost his rider, while Captain Alcock and Semper Pafatus fell. West Band finished fourth. Only five saddled up for the First Class Plate, the scratchings being Sandfuse, Kernsary, Affaire de Joie, and Ethel M. Bookmakers opened b^ betting 6 to 4 the field, at which price Miralga was solidly supported, and hardened to 5 to 4. Venetian w...
THE REAL BOLSHEVIKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 7 November 1920
THE REAL BOLSHEVIKS. An attempt is being made to de feat the effect of the Arbitration Court Award to Shop Assistants. Several large firms have cut out the commission which, it has been the custom to pay their sales staff. Spiffs, I think they call it. TMs has caused (in many cases) the sales staff to earn less than they did prior to the increase being granted by the court. (The court giveth, but the boss taketh away). Numerous complaints have reached the Sunday Mirror about this practice. It should be beneath the dignity of decent, firms to adopt such meth ods. How do you expect their em ployees (to say nothing of the gen eral public) to respect law and or der, or .to grant reverence to fluff kings? They apparently do not respect the law themselves, although their friends administer it. Then they wonder why direct action is so popular. The Mirror will have much more to say upon this ques tion if such tactics are persisted in. One of the sights at Bunbury Show was Hon. W. J. George ...
