Strike of Pbultry Pluckers. Of all the shoals of strikes which an offending consumers have had to near. Lalt of the poultry pluc?iers yesterday sounds the most humorsome. 'or tunately there'.is sufficient meat avail ..,e to prevent a famine, so the loss will fall on the strikers. The con sumer resents every-strike that inter feres with his supplies; yet he man ages to do without, and by doing so effects an ecoiinomy thereby. The poul try that would have been sold duriun Easter will not noow go into consump tion, and the poultry pluckers have denied themselves tlhe jobl of plucking the birds. During the meat strike in Sydney the health of the people in "creased marvellously, as it is a well known fact that Australians eat far too much meat.

The Usual Press Courtesy. [Newspaper Article] — The Essendon Gazette and Keilor, Bulla and Broadmeadows Reporter — 9 April 1914
-, The Usual Press Courtesy. The management of several public events have recently adopted the habit of only sending one complimentary ticket to the Press: and some managements have gone one worse, by intentionally deciding to send none to the Press. Speaking for ourselves we decline to accept one ticket to any public event, and we refuse to attend (in a representative capacity) in cases where no tickets- are sent. If local institutions are suddenly going to break down the recognised custom of centuries. we decline to help them out of the fx in which they will ind themselves. The Press in Western Australia . some time ago demonstrated that it is not going to be trampled upon, and ceased reporting Parliament, owing to being asked to do the reporting under pig?tye or contemp tuous conditions; and Essendon's local paper: is able to make the same stand regarding local events.-In a word or two we have no need to allow ourselves to be converted into a footstool or doormat; nor have we any...
