Belmont [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 16 July 1921
Beliwd (By 'Solon.') Soutb Perthites, we envy you. You are to - bave tbe trams immediately. We are disappointed, we expected ours before you. But — ' Happy Jack, we cannot understand you. You made no mention or iicl mont trams whilst referring to Cabi net's decision re Soutb Perth trams. Surely our turn Is at band. After being- put off from year to year by tbe different (and Indifferent) governments it is now up to all of us to bave a try to get our own tram way. Judging by the recentlyreport ed financial position of tbe town, it should not be an impossibilty for us to rase a loan Tor tbe purpose. No town or suburb to Australia has a brighter future than Be?mont has, now that several permanent Industries have licen established here, and it behoves us as a people to establish a boJd pol icy of progress. This can only be. ac hieved by the aid of £ s. d.. and as it appears the Government can dj noth ing- for us in the near Tuture, Jet us launch out on our own account and start the marc...
Men and Memories. [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 16 July 1921
1 men and memories. 1 We still- find one at least of the profiteering J.'s.P. sits on the Bench and adjudicates on cases. Consider ing his bond speculations, it should be his bounden duty to get out and get under; likewise obliterate him self. The Beau Brummeil, likewise moving picture type of artist, of the Railways is George, late c.f Beverley, Meekathaira, and other salubrious climes of this State. George is a real darling of the god desses, and there is always a rush for the ticket window when he whacks out Pope's pasteboard pass ports. Manye are so taken up with his peculiar type of beauty that they leave their change on the win dow slip. One married lady from Beverley holds him up as the Ultra Thale of all the virtues to her ia-. mily. Horrie Brown, of the Fremantle Majestic, is perhaps the hardest working theatre manager in the town. His lobby displays are al ways a treat, especially when some thing out of the usual is showing. It is then he excels himself. With hammer and- t...
Mangled Films WHEN THINGS WERE DIFFERENT. [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 23 July 1921
Moealed Fills WHEN THINGS WERE DIF ? FERENT. 'An old-time showman' writes of things in the movie game many years back, when a movie showman had to be operator, ticket-seller, agent, bill-poster, and a hundred other things. He was at that time running a. circuit of films in the Murray district, Victoria: — 'In the days of the touring pic bare show, we made money on the side by doing a bit of buying for anyone we met in the country. We telegraphed requirements to the despatch clerk in the film exchange, and he sent the goods along with our change of programme. It was quite a profitable business, but we had to strike a snae. It came when we showed at Wagga on the way up from the Victorian border. We made a big feature of the pictures of the , Coronation of King George, which we expected to receive by the train on the opening night. The train was late, but a few minutes before 8 pjn. we got a telephone message from the stationmaster that goods were waiting for us at the station. We orde...

Maylands (Bv 'nut-of-Order .'1 A petition is in circulation and will be signed freely, for the exten sion of the trams along Beaufort street to 10th -avenue. Juding by recent events, it appears as if Como will be. the only extension for the , present, nevertheless, petitions, em phasize the fact, of the rapid settle ment and inconvenience ot the nor thern part of our district, and for goodness sake don't forget to men tion something about our railway service. The fallens soldiers' memorial monument has at last begun to show signs of realisation, the con tractors: having during the List week built the foundation in the block next to the Town Hall, very shortly now, we hope to be pre sent at the unveiling.

That Trayning Hotel [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 23 July 1921
That Training Hotel Following closely on the 'Mirror's' comments on 4th and 11th June, on the Trayning (Licensing Muddle, a sale was held on the 13th inst. of Mr. Newman's rights to his town site block. This was purchased, after spirited' bidding, by Mr. Bailey Brown,, of Fremantle. who intends erecting a two-storey brick hotel fitted with electric light throughout, and with accommodation worthy oi one of the best farming centres in the State. It is to he hoped that Mr. Brown's efforts to build an hotel worthy -.f Trayniny will not be obstructed by opposition, similar to that met with by past enterprise, opposition which has practicallv ruined previous pur chasers, and that the Government will adopt some measure to safe guard further purchasers of State hotel sites.

The Tram Track Travesty [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 23 July 1921
Tie Trm Tr«K Travest! And so the Hon. the Minister for Tramways and Mr. Commissioner for Rails Pope have, after moh strouslv mature consideration, deci ded that the first tramway exten sion to be built in these hard times shall be a wild-cat line through the thick mulga scrub to some place called Gomo! A whole volume of letters t? the daily Press has proved taat the claims of other districts should have received prior consideration, whilst Mr. Kelsall (president of Mount Hawthorn Progress Association) has by quotation from Minister Scad dan's own speeches, and by the production of Minister Scaddan's own letter, shown that the new line will be built over a mass of broken pledges and promises. Not that broken pledges will much trouble the conscience of the Hon. John — the steps he has trodden to his pre sent position have been so largely constructed of them. Where and what is this Como'r There are large populations out along the Churchlands Estate, Lee derville. for more than a mile p...

STRUCK OIL! Why the Bomb from Melbourne? A REPORT, AS YET, UNCONFIRMED. [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 23 July 1921
STRUCK OIL! WIhj lie B«» lr«i Meiftftne? A EBPOET, AS YET, TJNCON ITRMED. Por some time past the West has been anxiously awaiting the discov ery of oil in this State, realising that such a lind would be of more value to it than even ' the discovery of another Golden Mils, and on Fri day last the rumor was circulated around that at last the strike had been made in the Bremmer Bay dis trict, on the South -Joast, some Hun dred odd miles east of. Albany. To date the discovery is reported — that is alL Would to God it were confirmed, consequently true. No one can tell us, or anyone else, with even an atom of interest in or know ledge of this country that subter ranean oil channels do not exist hereabouts. Geological research in our Great North indicates the exist ence of oil there. At least one pros pecting party is at the moment ac tually engaged in perfecting opera tions already begun, and not alto gether abandoned by a previous syn dicate.

An Eloquent Constable [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 23 July 1921
AiEldiuenl Constable ? u ? Narrogin 'Observer' of 16/7/'21 reports: — 'Not generally known that Con stable Campbell, of Wickepin, is easily the finest public speaker in this electorate, if not in many oth ers. On the occasion of the French Rose wedding at Wickepin on Tues day last, the constable supported the toast of 'The Parents,' and to the amazement of all present he burst into an oration, extending over talf-an-hour, which was abso lutely flawless in delivery and un surpassable for beauty of concep tion, ilt is a matter for surprise that a man so singularly gifted should be located1 in a small township, and it is also, to say the least, regrettable.' This is the same constable, whom, after 20 years' service, both Federal and State Governments, tried to crucify after the Conscription Re ferenda, at the behest of the sooling savages of Wickepin. It would in deed be interesting to know why Mr. Campbell is still kept as a con stable in a country district. Doesn't abilitv count in t...
