HOW THEY DO THINGS IN IRELAND. A LONDON EDITOR SPEAKS OUT. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 21 May 1921
HOW, THEY DO THINGS IN y / '' IRELAND ' > A LONDON EDITOR SPEAKS I " When men are ordered to halt, surely, if they are innocent, they will " , ; halt." I extract this priceless ob-, servation from Sir Hamar Green-? ' wood's reply on Monday to questions about the shooting of an eight year, edd Dublin girl on Saturday. A mot« or lorry full, of soldiers returning1 from the country halted at a corner;'ci l a group of"; young "men ran away v down a lane ; they v were, challenged to halt and "did not ; an officer fired after them; the child was killed. Such was the incident which occas- / ioried Sir Hamar Greenwood's ob- servation. About that observation one might : write an exhaustive commentary. I shall content.myself with oae or two - comments. What state of society is this in which any man in uniform 'may order any civilian to halt on pain of being shot? If a soldier or- dered a civilian to halt in England, -., would he halt? He would, I hope and believe tell him to go to the devil...

WORTH KNOWING. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 21 May 1921
WORTH KNOWING. Wholesale purveyers of beef in Sydney have offered to send sup- plies to Darwin at 4~d per lb. (ex- clusive of freight). The cattle slaughtered in'Sydney are brought at much expense from Western N. S. Wales, Queensland, and even thc Northern Territory. It must strike Darwinites as peculiar that with all this added expense the beef can be had for 4d per lb. while here in the midst of the cattle thc wholesale price is 6d. And the Price Fixing Board sleeps contentedly night after night-except for an occcasional worry from the mosquitoes.
A " COMEDY OF ERRORS." [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 21 May 1921
A " COMEDY OF ERRORS." With apologies to Dante and Shake- speare it may be stated that talent less capable than that of the giiteu and versatile authors of the " Divine Comedy " and the "Comedy oi Errors" respectively, could scarcely dp justice to a dramatic pourtrayai of the series of blunders, of " Hide and go seek," of Punch and Judy show, which have been in evidence since the arrival of Mr. Poynton, Minister for Home and Territories. If we wanted comedy wc certainly have had it; but it..has developed, or degenerated almost to tragedy amt last night's stage of thc game oí " Cat and dog " has practically put out the footlights. On appearances, as presented, Mr. Poynton looked inj the light of a snapping badger in a burrow and the great meeting, notr withstanding a cogent appeal by Mr. Conacher, passed judgment ac- cordingly. It was much of an ex parte judgment, and, whether right or wrong, has certainly done the cause which was to be presented and upheld, a serious injustice. Ther...

DO YOUR OWN FIGHTING, MR. JINGO. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 21 May 1921
DO YOUR. OWN FIGHTING, MR. JINGO. , Melbourne " Argus " despite its hundred eyes, never sees straight on any question touching the, military menace. During the war it was blindly obsessed and since the war , has been blindly obtuse. it should run amok at the détermina- it was but natural, therefore, that tion of the N.S.W. Labor Conference to "REFUSE INDIVIDUALLY AND COLLECTIVELY TO PAR- TICIPATE IN ANY WAR, OUT- SIDE THE COMMONWEALTH" This act of self-determination proves too much for the Collins street oracle, and hence is branded as a "singularly bad advertisement which binds Labor to permanent dis- loyalty and chronic 'cold feet/" Where the alleged disloyalty comes in, or of what it consists, this pluto classic does not say, nor does it disclose the exact nature or where- j abouts of the alleged "cold feet." Enough, seemingly, ; that the ."Ar- gus" has.discovered-rthough it hates the discovery-that Lajjor is rudely realising the ugly fact that for gen- erations it has been cajol...
