People About & About People [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 18 July 1920
People About & About People The 'Bulletin' culled this adver tisement from an Adelaide paper, and we cull it from the 'Bulletin' with comment: 'I want work, will take anything.

B's, Would-B's, and Have-Beens, Also Never-Wasers [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 18 July 1920
B's, Would-B's, and Have-Beens, Also Never-Wasers Miss Kitty Gresham, the popular ballet mistress at the Melrose, short ly takes a well-earned rest after nearly two years' continuous hard work. It was first under the aegis of the J. C. Williamson direction that Miss Gresham achieved marked distinction in the terpsichorean art, but she is probably better known to theatre patrons throughout Aus tralia as a leading member of the renowned 'Gresham. Four.' Miss Kitty says that she purposes during her holiday travel to keep her know ledge of ballet presentation, innova tion, etc., up to date, but The Mirror opines that the dainty little lady has not a great lot to learn. Any how, Miss Gresham, who is a Ban analander by birth — and proud of it too — is not likely to overlook any 'new' business that may happen along during her holiday ramble. * * ?

TELEGRAMS OF PROTEST. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 18 July 1920
TELEGRAMS OF PROTEST. Our Melbourne correspondent wires: — 'Telegrams of protest are pouring in as a. result of Justice Starke's statement suggesting that he would be influenced in his deci sion on the Federal Assistants' Case by the state of the Commonwealth finances. The General Secretary of the Grand Council of Federal Asso ciations estimates that nearly every branch and sub-branch of each Com monwealth Service Association has wired a strongly-worded protest. There is a strong likelihood of all cases pending being withdrawn from the Court, and other methods of ob taining satisfaction adopted.'
STARKE LUNACY A Sinister Suggestion from Arbitration Bench. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 18 July 1920
STARRe LUNACY A Sinister Suggestion from Arbitration Bench. Recently a vacancy occurred on th« Federal Arbitration bench. One Starke was appointed. Justice Starke has been sitting during last week upon a case where in three Commonwealth Service or ganisations, representing the great bulk of the non-clerical officers of the Federal departments, sought in creases in salary. Many years since the Federal Par liament granted the right of access to the Federal Court to Common wealth employees, the object being to free the question of rates of pay in the service from political control. The object was a good one, calcu lated to entirely obviate any possi bility of an eventuality of the na ture of the State Service Strike. And hitherto it has worked well. But a sinister suggestion thrown out by Justice Starke bodes little good for the future. His Honour is reported to have used the words. 'If you go_on at this rate you'll ruin 'the Government.' That view is entirely inadmissable. We say that...
LETTERS FROM INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 18 July 1920
LETTERS FROM INDIA. According to official reports, In dia is settling down rapidly after the recent trouble, but personal let ters do little to bear out that im pression. On the ..- contrary, they speak plainly of the growing unrest amongst the native population as well as of the frontier tribes. There is no doubt, at any rate, that it is not the most desirable spot in the world for white women and children at the moment, as the recent kidnap ping ease at Peshawar, when the wife of a British officer was actually car ried over the border, goes to prove.
Belmont Comments. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 18 July 1920
BClBMt CHUMIlS. Mr. Wilkinson is to be congratu lated on his handicapping of yester day's races. Victories by half a length (twice), half a neck, a head, and half a head speaks volumes for the weight-adjuster. Rouleau again showed his pace up to the turn in the Hurdles, where Captain Alcock eot to the front and the race looked all over for the son of Mural, when he ran off atthe last jump, leaving a good finish to be fought out. Good Turn, having a good 'kick' in him won by half a length from the fast-finishing Yar randale. Yarrandale should win next up providing there is a change of boys. 'Captain Alcock is also a winner ere long. McKenna rode a very confident race on Cherso. Allowing Some Class to- make the pace, 'Mac' swung on to the favourite until reaching the turn, where he applied the 'mop,' and a great tussle even tuated to the post. Cherso beating 'Bill' Lean's mare by the narrow margin of half a neck. Ventrim, 'coming from the clouds,' was third. There was real good 'McGin...

POLICE AND ROYAL VISIT. Good Men Gold-Shouldered. For Superannuated Butt-ins. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 18 July 1920
POLICE AND ROYAL VISIT. Good Men Cold-Shouldered. For Superannuated Batt4ns. Policemen are a class of the spe cies that we are obliged to regard, under changing conditions from dif ferent points of view. A policeman swears to serve the Government of the day ; and when the Uoverameni happens to be bad, stupid, brutal, or officious, its stupidity, brutality. Prussianism, and other assorted bad nesses are crystallised in the person of the well- booted (in many ways) devotee of Robert Peel. Our police have been obliged to shoulder the onus, the stench, of the utterly stupid and un-British May flower expedition of strong-man im personator Colebatch. They have had hard work to live down their enforced participation in the trag edy: and — to -come to the point — while it is significant that its author basked to the top of his bent in the refulgence ©£ Royalty, his scape goats were pushed out into the cold to make room for superannuated gentry who had left the service many years before. Whe...

UMPIRE CEAPP'S RESIGNATION. Great Loss to League FootbalL [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 18 July 1920
UMPIRE CRAPP'S RESIGNA TION. Great Loss to League Football. The resignation of Umpire Crapp, which the Football League has ac cepted, will be keenly regretted by all followers of the sport. This regret is intensified as a result of the magnificent exhibition he gave at the recent Leederville Oval match, when, as an outc©me of the misunderstanding between Trotter and Craig, he consented to act once more. Mayhaps he felt a sort of leniency to his favourite team, nevertheless only the most one-eyed barrackers could possibly say that he did not give rthe finest exposi tion of the game ever seen this sea son — in fact, after some of the de plorable displays recently witnessed you couldn't even make a compari son.
NO HEAT INSPECTION. Premium on Putridity. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 18 July 1920
NO MEAT INSPECTION. Premium on Putridity. Another of the almost unforeseen effects of the Service StiOte— or, to give it the name it is sure to bear in history, Mitchell's Folly-^is to abolish, pro. tern., the meat inspec tion at the abbatoirs. Thank God it isn't summer! Municipalities are, vested with power — and responsibility — for the inspection of meat in butcher's shops. Is that power being exer cised? The Mirror can't speak for all suburbs, but in more than one no inspection has been seen, while in Perth itself the quality of some of the meat being sold, and not a hundred miles from the Town Hall, either, suggests that lion feed must have been rather scarce last week over South Perth way. Incidentally we might mention that butcher's offal has been lying in a central right-of-way for some days past, and is there yet. Doesn't look as though there's much inspection of any sort whatever. But trust a Council that's mayored alternately by sausage-kings, rag-merchants, and insurance...
FRUIT FLY FAVOURED. Service Strike Sidelight. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 18 July 1920
FRUIT-FLY FAVOURED. Service Strike Sidelight. Western Australia maintains, or is supposed to maintain, a strict quar antine over imported fruit, potatoes, fruit-trees, etc. The inroads of the fruit-fly, the codlin moth, potato blight, and other imported diseases tauebt us the necessity of this pre caution, but it is obvious, judging from recent events, that the Mitchell Government have no conception of its extreme importance. The event to which we refer is the abandon ment of the quarantine as a result of the Service strike. The inspec tors having ceased work, (this class of goods is now permitted to go to the consignees without inspection. The seriousness of the risk so run may best be made apparent by re counting the experience of the Cali fornian orchardists, whose planta tions are worth thousands of mil lions — and their annual return so great that the owners find it pay to light fires to keep the trees warm on frosty nights. Some twenty years ago these or chards-^thanks to negl...
DOPING THE COMMISSION. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 18 July 1920
DOPING THE COMMISSION. Councillor Higham, one of the best haters of the workers in Fremantle, was quoted by 'Enery 'Aynes (an other prize tory, and Town Clerk of Fremantle) as his authority for an item of evidence that he gave be fore the Basic Wage Commission. Said evidence was to effect that rents hadn't risen much for a num ber of years. Then the cock crew.
PERTH CENTRAL STATION. INADEQUATE "EXITS." DISGRACE TO THE STATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 18 July 1920
P1RTH CENTRAL STATION. INADEQUATE 'EXITS.' DISGRACE TO THE STATE. Like almost every public build ing in the city, the Perth ^Central Station is about 25 years behind the requirements of the day. Instead of the wide and ample 'barriers' that one sees wnen trav elling in the East our station is provided with about five micro scopic slots, most of which are carefully hidden away in as inac cessible comers as possible. Through these slots a congested mass of humanity contrives to fight and elbow its way after the arrival of each train. Woe betide tthe hurried traveller who wishes to catch the train the outcomuig crowd has just vacated! Even these inadequate entrances are not given a fair show. People stand about in the way quite un disturbed by officials. Our repre sentative, indeed, was ordered to 'stand aside' one evening— at an hour when the station precincts were practically deserted, but then, a motor car containing some Gov. 'Ouse snobs had just drawn up. He s cursed his natural p...
THE SCANDALOUS ASTLUM AT CLAREMONT. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 18 July 1920
THE SCANDALOUS ASYLUM AT 0LAREMONT. The draggle-tailed Government of this State are piling up another wealth of trouble at the mismanag ed Hospital for the Insane, Clare mont. Ever since they promised to 'do something after the belect Committee not merely has the pub lic been hoping in vain, for some im provement in the management — any change must necessarily be an im provement — but the' attendants have been anticipating an alteration for the betterment of their condi tions. They were promised that they should be placed on the same minimum wage as the police, and so the male attendants were, on the first police rise, but the police have since received another advance which has never been mentioned to the Claremont men. In the mean time an individual named Simpson, appointed to a position called 'busi- ness manager' by the petty cash Government, who had to find him a job somewhere, has taken away the overcoats, which were a part of the uniform, i.e., the allowance or part of wages,...
Sub-Rosa. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 18 July 1920
Sub-Rosa. Breezy Bill Renton got a shock on Tuesday morning at Fremantle, the occasion being a gathering of the insurance canvassers who are on strike. Strident of voice, and with the lust of battle in his eye, Bill castigated 'the class' whom he thought was most productive of 'scabs.' After listening to one or two speakers, however, Bill &nbsp; diplomatically said that he hoped his tactics would not offend, as he had found out what he asked for. A'hem! &nbsp; &nbsp; Matrimonial 'West': — 'A Gentleman in good financial position, owner of general store, also large quantity of live stock, wishes to meet a nice respectable young lady with vjgw to marriage.' Oh! I've got a lot of merchandise, I've got a lot of stock, And I've got some good round &nbsp; quidlets— dull poverty to mock. But my heart is full of longing as I walk my general store, for though I'm full of this world's goods I long for one thing more. I want a nice young tartlet — just to cuddle ...
