THE IRISH QUESTION. LtVELY DISCUSSION IN COM MONS. .... MEMBER ORDERED TO LEAVE. In the House ofCommons Dev- lin moved the adjournment on thc ground of want of proper control by the Crown forces in Belfast. He accused them of cowardly crimes including the murder of two youths, also three other men, who were dragged from.their beds without the Government. attempting to bring Ihc assassins, to justice.

CENSORSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 18 June 1921
CENSORSHIP. ¡ Tlîai Red Republican Renegade SIR joseph Cook has endeavored to I jokingly explain away recent' censor- ship telegrams-not necessarily at Darwin. Perhaps he will also eluc- idate censorship in war time of com- mercial correspondence of Darwin Ciñese merchants by "the Choco- late soldiers" and a custom official, who was afterwards appointed "tem- porary" censor and his appointment made retrospective. Reminds me of the* yarn about our fly-weight cob- ber; Freddie sending a long letter to a Printers Union official care of Trades * Hall, Brisbane in which some pungent comments upon Dr. Gilruth were blackened &lt; out. What had. Dr. Gilruth to do with the war? He did not even volunteer to relieve the suffering horses as a horse doctor.

(Argus, May 6, 1921 ) ¡ Laughter was created at the Kew i court on Wednesday, when Dr. Cole P.M., chairman of the Bench, asked if there was any appearance of Will- iam Morris Hughes.

When the Council De* putation interviewed the Minister on various Council affairs this .. matteo was brought befog: him and he pro- mised to bring the matter 'before Cabinet oh his return.

CIVILISATION STARTS TO THE TUNE OF THE CRACK OF THE STAREDRIVER'S WHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 18 June 1921
CIVILISATION STARTS TO THE TUNE OF THE CRACK OF THE STÄRBDRIVBR'8 WHIP. "In; thc oinion of the average Britisher,*' said Judge Murray/ lieutenant-Governor ! of, Papua, at the Science Congress held iii Mel- bourne, alt foreign nations are ob- viously incapable of self-government But it really did seem that 'natives/ rightly regarded as our inferiors, were peculiarly unfit to govern themselves. There were two ways of regarding a native race-firstly, as 'living tools* of other men; se: coñdly as men in the full sense. The j Germans regarded th native merely as a means of developing the re- sources of hts country-it was '-thc old view of the natural born slave. The British principle of native ad- ministration was, at any rate in principle, (! ? !) very different The welfar of the native was one of the first objects of administration. He (Judge Murray) hoped that this at- titude would never be abandoned. It was the only 'one worthy of a civilis- ed nation." " How hypocritical is the Brit...

EURASIANS. (To the Editor) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 18 June 1921
EURASIANS., (To the Editor ) , Sir,-I notice in your columns quite a lot about Eurasians. Now, sir, I don't know of a'better place in the world for an Eurasian than Darwin. In this place an Eurasian is treated by many as a white man and the unfortunate must derive "a certain amount of comfort from the ' knowledge. Over East, bf course, things are quite different. I have seen white people t rise and leave: a restaurant when an Eurasian came iii and sat at the table.. This struck me as being a bit far fetched and I . enquired why it was so. My inform- ant looked at me somewhat surpris . ed and I assured him I was a pure bred Australian. He said "Don't you know that we would lose caste if we dined at the same- table as an Eurasian?" I pleaded . ignorance. My informant advised me to follow ?«n my investigations, at. a race meet in^. I did, and now I understand what it means to lose caste. Yours, etc., v WHITE AUSTRALIA.
