THE INS AND OUTS. CIVIL SERVANTS v. MINISTER. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 18 June 1921
THE INS AND OUTS. ava SERVANTS v. MINISTER. The latter'have certainly topped^ the score in the match. Civil Ser-: vants v. Minister, but we think the, OUTS could have put up a better score. Why wasn't the Government , ment station joints played? What about "Owin-Pienty" "Matarank sbme," and the "Day-lie." We think their inclusion would have "been a great improvement. Then what about the Compound-interest- at Myilly Point Couldn't that be put: , in the team with advantage ? Then why cannot the' Superintendent of Railways, whOj by the way, is also chief derk,office boy, station mast* j er, road master, and goodness know! I what get a place in the team. . 'The ; Government » should recognise Wt valuable'and duplicate service and knight him by appending another , degree of .. honor such as chief packer and truck examiner. But on the other hand the INS should improve their team also, by allowing the Quarantine doctor the right of private practice.. Then , again, there would be no cause f...
THE TWO WORST ACTS. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 18 June 1921
THE TWO WORST ACTS. (Td the Editor.) S»ir,--As- head of the Fisher Gov- ernment in* ' 1910 and 1915 Andrew Fisher must accept the responsibility for what I.. consider the two worst ' legi^ imposed on a British Dominion. These are the disfranchisement of the people in; the 'Northern Territory, after its transfer from South Australia in 1916, and the ' purchase of the hotets and the assumption of direct govern- mental ownership of the liquor trade in 1915/ thereby abolishing effective . control, and accentuating - the, glaring evil of the sly grog trade. sNTlw presents has' pro- posed going; half, way towards corr H reefing, tWc'>yHsj.by : selling the ' hotels . if possiblè-^and after a' brief period, abolishing. Government ownership of the liquor trade; It can absolute- ly correct the evil wrought by quick ' ly recognising that the best and sur- est way to fight ' social Unrest and the spread of all revolutionary sen- timents is by restoring the franchise and allowing the people t...

THE APPROACHING COMET. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 21 June 1921
THE APPROACHING COMET. -m The Pons-Winnecke comet, which is ::at present an object of consider- able interest not only to scientists Imf also to the average man, is by no means one of the large or im ' portant members of the sun's fam- ily'of comets. It was first seen as a faint telescopic object by Pons, of Marseilles, a famous French as- j tronomer who devoted himself to ! this branch of astronomy, on June Î2, 1818. The great German astron- omer Encke, whose name is borne by another comet, assigned to this , faint object a revolutionary period of about five angj a half years. At the end of that period, however, the object was not seen, ,and it was given up as lost until cn March 8, 1858, it was rediscovered by a Ger- 1 man observed, Winnecke, at Bonn. For some time Winnecke regarded thc comet as,a new one, but on cal- culating its orbit he was soon led to thc conclusion that it was identical with Pons's lost comet of 1819. Since 1858 thc comet has been re- cognised äas r a regular...

TERRITORY. ,/ *' ' News item: ;y"The Peruvian ,Gov-:' crament failed 'Xor deport to Auus iralia x45. politicians iincluding Geft4 ' eral Oscar Benadido's, , the formers President of Peru. - The deportees , nfntineed aboard ' the ship in mid-Pacific when bound for Australia and took the steamer back to Punta Arenas, in Costa Rica where they appealed for an asylum ' from the Costa Rican Government" It . is unfortunate " that the cable gram did not state which part of' Australia the politio-deportees were being consigned to, but we think it must have been the Territ- ory, and politicians much preferred being in an asylum under a "dago? Government than being political' Mavcs in White Australia.
