THOUGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 29 June 1923
THOUGHTS. (BY MERNDA, I have been in a quandary to under stand the bearing of combines, pools, profiteers, etc., on the daily life and progress of this fair State of Victoria. I take it; sir;' .Tcohlbinie, etc is, in as sociation of persons; who by-their dom bination intend, of course, always in tend to benefit the other fellow,- but specially to benefit those who combine. Our friends-:the sugar planters of Queensland, after having had a glori ous time the last three years, are loth to lose the benefit of the kindly pro tection of the bountiful price for sugar fixed by a kindly Government, and profess not to be satisfied with the ex traordinary liberal offer of the Prime Minister for the next two years. After very careful thought I have come to the conclusion that the con sumers; who, by the way, are by far the most numerous in the com munity are, as a whole, like, or should be, descendants of Job, as by their patient endurance of the fleecing that they have had to put up with, espe...

THAT CORNER AGAIN. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 29 June 1923
THAT CORNER AGAIN. TO THE i DITOR OF THE ADVERTISER Sir,-lt is on record that Percy Shelley, whose father already allow ed him £200 the year pocket money while under age, but refused to pay certain additional accounts which young Shelley had run up for lollies and tarts for flappers, wrote a homily on the duty of parents to children. Your correspondent "Fairplay" is more ambitious. He, after "that cor ner" has had allotted to it £200 out of a total available amount of some £800, and has been refused MORE, writes a homily on the whole duty of shire councillors, engineers, valua tors, and M.M.B.W. commissioners. Surely such a prodigy should not hide his light under a bushel and modestly conceal his "blushes of in genuous shame" under various nom de-plumes. Some months ago this same correspondent wrote to your paper under the name of "Strath ewen," and after abusing the various other parts of the shire, advocated the Arthur's Creek-Strathewen route for the railway, and then had the eff...
