"THOUGH THE HEAVENS MAY FALL." (Contributed by "Peter Simple.") [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 26 May 1921
"THOUGH THE HEAVENS MAY | FALL." I (Contributed by "Peter Simple.") I have heard that the ex-Kaiser was fond of saying "Me and God," but it falls to the lot of Minister Poynton, to out-Kaiser the Kaiser. In reply to the Mayor of Darwin, the Minister says "Though the heav- ens may fall I shall proceed as if nothing has occurred." What a mighty boaster this Min- ister is. I feel quite anxious about him, because all mighty autocratic boasters have surely come to a bad end. But let us analyse that awful statement and what it means. It means that the Minister will proceed to retrench the unfortunate domes- tics and a few other unfortunate wage-earners. He cannot possibly go much further as far as the bot- tom dog is concerned; these have touched bottom long ago; even tc thc extent of sacrificing the lives oi the public. On the other hand we can rest as- sured that no attempt will be mad&lt; to boot these sycophants and pros- elytes, who have been the main causi of the awful failu...

IN THE NAME OF PEACE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 26 May 1921
ULTHE NAME OF PEACE. I There gathered in Melbourne dul- ling 'the Easter holidays a conference I which, iii its character and ccmposi-; tion, was. unusually unique. The conference was convened by the Melbourne Branch qi the Aus- tralian Peace Alliance, and delegates fro invarious States were presen i. Thirty-eight organisations-religi- ous, political, and industrial--were' represented, and amongst the repre- sentatives" were Agnostics, Unitar- ians, Quakers, Independents, Com- munists,- - Socialists, Anarchists, Christian Scientists, Theosophists, and men of ho church or cult what- ever." Delegates from&lt; the Council of : Churches sat check-by jowl with delegates - from the. Catholic Federa- tion, and Quakers drank tea with Ra- tionalists. ' : ' ;^r^fpl|^^ . Yet, despite the essential" variety of viewpoint, . and the consequent yrsälity of expression, there was A UNITY OF AIM arid spirit which made the gathering a psychological feat and feast. .

Hypothetical Happenings - SANDY AND PAT DISCUSS THINGS IN GENERAL (Reported by "The Spook"). ' An', its yourself, said Pat, as he met his old pal, Sandy, last night, coming out of thc Club Hotel wip- ing his mouth with his sleeve; So it is, said Sandy ; how the dev- il are ye since I left. I As dry as the man that runs the "Times" said Pat, maybe I didn't have a drink since the Price Fixing Board put the beer up. The Price Fixing Board ! said Sandy. Sure? nev* Price Fixing Board is wanted for that job. Anjrway, Pat, old boy, bang went my last half dql , lar gor I'd ask you to wet your I whistle. ^ Oh, never "mind, said Pat, you know the poor devils-the Govern-, ment-are stoney broke, and must make- up the cost of Hughes* trip to the Imperial conspiracy, not for- getting _Mr. Poynton's trip-and the Administrator's hams which were lost, stolen or strayed. But where have ye been all the time, Sandy. Oh, right aways out hack as far as P'raps. I thought I'd make a do with the hop beer, b...
AVOW YOUR FAITH. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 28 May 1921
AVOW YOUR FAITH. Shall wc. whisper lowly, meekly, Shall we check the meet remons- trance, And deny the faith , of martyrs Lest ^the hostile critics snee/; Shall we leave unsung the praises Of the patriot dead who beckon To a nation's bleeding bossom, While we crouch in abject ? fear ? Shall we hallow not the valour Which redeemed our country's honour, , Shall we only curse the struggle, Since the effort proved in vain? Must ingratitude still deeper Probe the deep wounds ever gap- ing? Must, we supplicate and flatter While pur teardrops fall as rain? Dare we speak as men ennobled By the deeds of brave ancestors, Lest the callous or the listless , 'Gainst our rightful yearnings ^ i rave? . Must we only speak in prayer As thc mendicant, for pity? ¡ Must wc damn the cause of free- dom Whlist we consecrate its , grave? '. Speak you low, but speak you firmly, . . "> Speak with. certainty and fervour, As Apostles of the Gospel, Of a nation's cherished right; God and manhood claim the se...

THE LIGHT THAT NEVER GOES OUT. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 28 May 1921
THE LIGHT THAT NEVER G OES Ó UT. The books which have been writ- ten on "the origin of evil" would form quite a formidable library in themselves.. Amongst many races and in many ^ages , philosophers haye pondered over the problem as if it were the - most profound pf all mysteries. For the 'most part these speculations have been of'a singularly uncon- vincing character. After all, is there any great mystery about the matter : of -human wrong-doing? In the earliest- and most primitive forms of social organisation brute : strength was the one thing essential to tribal distinction and material advantage. As men become civilised brawn and muscle ceased to be the .- most potent factors in the acquisi- tion of plunder. The cunning and unscrupulous gradually gained the upper hand, and the prizes of .life went to them . That men should be brutes, when brutality was the road to success, and crafty and cunning when these qualities insured material gain, does not seem very wonderful. Social env...

They have also introduced improvements, into Russian orthography, such as enlightened scholars in that country, had been advocating for many years. The Russian alphabet contained nd fewer than thirty-six letters, some of which were considered cumbrous pr unnecessary.

"BRITAIN'S NEW WORLD." [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 28 May 1921
"BRITAIN'S NEW WORLD." : Cabled that the British Govern- ment's appeal for volunteer defence units-runits to be utilised, if the Government gaye the -word, to shoot: #dowri- the strikers in cold blood - brought an enormous response. Tht volunteers: receive regular army pay and probably the latter consideration was responsible for much ofv the .rush,. The Capitalistic British Gov- ernment has created so much uncm- j ploymcnt that many of the s^mi starving out of works are forced to be prepared to,- mulder their own un- fortunate countrymen and to add 'to the already long list of widows and orphans. And this iá the best Brit- ain, can do" in -the beginning bf the New- World made safe for Demo- cracy ! / Referring to a lament in the "N. T. Times'' concerning horses stray- ing in the , streets, a horseowner sens, us the information that they are not horses at all, but mares mostly night-mares.
WORTH KNOWING. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 28 May 1921
WORTH KNOWING. While the evidently indigent Gov _ eminent is raising the price of board - at thc State Hotels, others are either reducing or leaving the tariff un- touched. A case iii point is that of . the Darwin Cafe, where Mr. Kyrta- " 'cos, is catering as low as 30s. per -'" week, and providing first-class meals Including eggs for breakfast,. The State Hotels seem to have their r fowls all roosters, for devil an egg ' one sees except occasionally. The Darwin Cafe has set a praiseworthy example and we are sure the'evict- - ed boarders of the hotels and the ^ general public will appreciate it ¡
