THE IRONY OF PRICES. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 28 May 1921
THE IRONY OF PRICES. À daily paper tells of a woolgrow- ' er who cannot find a market for his . -wool being charged 15 guineas for a' suit of clothes, although the actual cost of the material when it left the . : mill was only £1 10s 6d. Out ' of this amount the woolgrower receiv- ed a mere .is 6d. Hide-sellers find, too, that, air though the price of hidès'has slump» i ed considerably, they have to pay ¡preposterous prices for their boots/ . .. Rabbit-skins, also, have substant- I ially depreciated in value. Yet when the' sellers want to purchase hats, for ojher, felt goods,: the boom prices^ reveal; little or no diminishment And so on ad infinitum. The simple truth of the whole \ matter is that Capitalism favors the' agents and othçr, middlemen, the manufacturers, the wholesale and (sometimes) the retail distributors. It provides them with a happy hunt- ing ground of illimitable and contin- uous resources. Those who produce the raw mat- erial, and those who have to buy back the fi...
"DOING BEST FOR TERRITORY." [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 28 May 1921
"DOING BEST FOR TER- RITORY." Wc have it on reliable authority that thc Government has placed thc State hotels on the Southern mar- ket for sale, reserving the right to control the importation of liquors. One would think a lease would be best, but apparently the folks that ' didn't have their prejudices formed | before they came to Darwin want to give money-bags a chance. The vis- it to Mr. Holmes is now explained, j He will soon have all of Darwin I that the B.A.T. won't have.

THE MILITARISTS ARE BUSY AGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 28 May 1921
THE MILITARISTS ARE BUSY AGAIN. The enemies of Democracy are determined by hook or crook to place the destinies of the Australian people in the.hands of the Imperial- ists in Great Britain. Thwarted in their former, plans to enmesh this country in the glit- tering net of British Imperialism, they ore now attempting to foist on the statue book of the Common- wealth Parliament an Imperialist measure of far-reaching effect. If the present Amending De- fence Bill, now before the Federal Parliament, is allowed to become law, the people of Australia will find j themselves committed to the tyran- nous and brutal British Army Act, and under the complete domination of the Imperialists of Great Britain. The other day, Minister for De- fence Pearce, ating presumably at the suggestion of the militarists of Britain, introduced in the Senate an j Amending Defence Bill for the pur- . pose of bringing the Australian De- fence Act into conformity with the British Army Act. And, having in- 1 traduced...
PRECONCEIVED GOOD—OR EVIL? [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 28 May 1921
PRECONCEIVED GOOD-OR EVIL? Wê have had some exhibitions of a sort of "After-dinner" puff from one or two leading residents of Darwin, as to the good intentions of Minister Poynton and the benefits his visit were sure to confer on this ostracised community; and we have had numerous ^professions by the Minister himself, of the lofty purity of purpose which imbued him-even to the extent of persisting in this non-erring course of rectitude "though the heavens should fall." If we remember rightly the bounder Lloyd George, the lunatic Woodrow JkVilsoii and many other frauds made use of similar professions when they wanted to decoy the masses of their, countrymen into a war-ás they lied, to end war, but in reality-to grab a rival's trade and annex his territory. Minister Poynton was one of those who be- came obsessed with the infallibility of these "professors" of false pro- fessions, and that he has since grad- uated in the school of make-believe may be shown by at least one cir- cumstanc...
BLACK AND TANS BURN AND IRISH ARE ASKED TO PAY. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 28 May 1921
BLACK AND TANS BURN AND IRISH ARB ASKED TO PAY. . .Damage Done by British Hireling« in Clare Towns Levied on the People. Greenwood's and Macready's burners, the British military and constabulary have been busy for months with the match box and pet- , roi can in the County of Clare, and now the taxpayers of Clare are ex- pected to pay for the damage done by "the custodians of civilisation." Men in military uniforms were sworn to have burned houses-and other property in Lahinch and En nistymon for which Judge Bodkin, at Ennis, made awards for compensat- ion. Patrick Walsh, Lahinch, swore in support of his claim that men in mil- itary, uniform came to his house; V man with a petrol tin went a room; an .immediately afterwards a fire broke out; applicant and' his fa- mily removed their things; the house was destroyed. Judge Bodkin a« warded £3,203 and £28 expenses. A daughter of John Claire, cooper said a party of men wearing military clothes and trench hats attacked the house, which- wa...
AN UNFAIR DISCRIMINATION [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 28 May 1921
AN UNFAIR DISCRIMINATION i The fact that. while Australian . \ wheat for local bread-making purr poses is selling at~os per bushel, the' same wheat is .being sold at 7s6d ' " per bushel Jto. provide bread for the people of foreign countries, is hard- ly likely to provide cheerful reading for the workers :pf this country. Having been forced to reduce the *. export price of wheat for flour to 7» 6d per bushel, in- order to compete with other grain-producing countries it is surely up to the Wheat Board , ' td place Australians on the same iooting. }- , \&lt; Nobody wants to see ; the farmers penalised in the selling price of their product. Nor are the Austral- . i ian people asking, that. they should get wheat at a cheaper price than that* obtained 'in* oversea markets. But the action of the Wheat Board in deciding that wheat gristed into flour for export shall be sold is 6d per bushel cheaper than, wheat for local use. is grossly unfair- to Aus- tralia, where the wheat is grow...

In the London "Daily Herald" ot February 4, Evelyn Sharp writes as follows on terrorism in Ireland : There are many arguments tov be used against the Government's pol- icy tof terrorism iii Ireland. But on- ly one of" them need be considered-» that it doesn't terrorise. There is nothing strange in this to any stu- dent of history, or any rebel. Un- fortunately, Cabinet Ministers are neither one nor the other. But we, who. in the end shall have to pay in taxation for this costly Attempt at terrorism, and are already paying bitterly in unemployment ,and loss of trade, to say nothing bf loss of hon- or, have reason, to remember that it is also a costly failure. .-DID YOU SAY BELGIUM ? . ôajï -day recently I found myself;, in the company .of. a - y...
