Income Tax and Politicians [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 16 July 1921
HKtie T« fM Pilitkiiu TScnitator':— - The taxj-payers of thus State are getting a rotten deal from the Governxnenjt as regards the. income tax; the exemption is a dis grace to the politicians who are responsible for it. Why on earth cannot it oe raised to at least £250 per annum, and give the workers a ^chance to get ahead a bit? The present exemption is in most cases an absolute swindle, as, if a tax payer's assessable income exceeds ciec l ? * ? ? ? a* ... ii-«, ue gees no exemption at all. The Federal gang with their exemp tion is bad enough, but they are honest in the matter, and allow it in iull— very different from this State, which renegs on its supposed exemption. Why not raise the ex emption, and clap it on to those with, say, £400 or over? They are far better able to pay up than the unfortunate worker. Then again, take the single person getting under S2 per week. Fancy taking their tew- DO&! ^surely this glorious btate is not in such a rotten condition as to have t...
That Indemnity PALTRY RECOGNITION FOR AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 16 July 1921
Tilt iMemitf PALTRY RECOGNITION FOR AUSTRALIA. ''Fight, work, or pay' was the glibly-mouthed slogan of war nion gerers during the five years of in ternational madness. Unfortunately the system was never worked scien tifically, and the latest—and greatest — examnln of its lnn-siffod snnli na- tion is in connection with the Ger man indemnity. It appears that Germany has paid over some £50,000,000, of which Britain gets over £11,000,000. Out of that it is proposed to allow India and the Dominions about £1,300,000, of which Australia's share, '*at a liberal estimate' will not exceed £400,000. It would appear, therefore, that the distribution is to be made on the basis of the number of men pro vided for the expeditionary forces. This is delightful. The general pub lic may or may not be aware that Australia paid on a vastly more lav ish scale than any other Dominion. The other Dominions simply found the men, equipped them, transported them to Ensrland. and. finally brought them back. Engl...

Commonwealth Lethal Chambers TWO DEPARTMENTS AFFECTED. Public Health Regulations Ignored. [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 16 July 1921
CMWHVMin LCtlf I earners TWO DEPARTMENTS AFFECTED. Public Health BdgtOatioos Ignored. If any body or institution should obey the law without dfemur or evasion, it is a Government depart-1 ment — especially a department of the Commonwealth, bloated as it is with the proceeds of grinding taxa tion. Yet facts that have come to our knowledge show that certain aspects of the law are ignored shamelessly by at least two Com monwealth Departments in Perth. The most serious complaint comes from the G.P.O., where the men em ployed in the costing jroom, State Engineer's Department, have been compelled, after repeated fruitless verbal complaints, to forward on a written protest concerning the shocking overcrowding and disgrace ful lighting conditions. The room has a floor space of only 622 feet, but crowded into it are ten men — some- limes 11. The irony of the whole thing is the fact that an adjoining room nearly twice the size is de voted to the use of two men and a girl, but, of course, as o...

THE MIRROR JULY 16, 1921. Uncle Sam Top Dog [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 16 July 1921
JULY 16, 4«M. _, iKie sn Tip dh Columbfet, strongiest among the evangelists of Peace, calls to the nations to 'come together in Confer ence for the purpose of devising a working plan for the future con trol of the world's peace. Her en lightened and pacifically inclined mind shrinks from the riot of dis order, ruin, and bloody conflicts which the one-eyed god of militarism has imposed, and is imposing upon the world, robbing civilisation of its accumulated! values purchased from the centuries of tireless striv ings in the laboratory, the school and the Councils of the States. Events are moving quickly these davs. and it seems our groggv old world, foolish with the intoxication of its victory won over the ancient Hapsburgs and Hohenzollerns is taking a pull, and endeavouring to sober itself. The cables of the week manifest a change in world thought. Sanity is gradually being restored, and common sense is mov ing back to its place amongst the nations. State-craft' is getting over its ...

Helping the Housewife [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 16 July 1921
Helping tke Housewife ? u Bvery housewife who dislikes the laborious task of polishing stoves and grates,, and what housewife does not,- will be pleased to hear that they can again purchase f r6m their grocer that fine polish Black Watch, the manufacture of which. was temporarily suspenaea aunug the war period, owing to some of the main ingredients being un obtainable. The 'Black Watch,' in addition to being unequalled for stoves and such like metal ware, can be used as a varnish for wood, and is a wonderful enamel, whilst leather ware can be renovated with it to look like new. This infal lible preparation is made wholly in Western Australia at the factory, Belmont, so that added to its super iority over imported lines, it has the advantage of allowing the ladies to patronise *home industries.
