A Current Commentary [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 13 August 1921
J\ Zurhnt Commentary The perigrinations of Pope's im potent puffers was parlously parad ed at last Wednesday's football match. Getting there on a most inefficient service was bad enough, but after the match many of the visitors were held up for an un conceivable time— in the case of the East Perth-siders as long as an hour for transport home. ' ? The railways and, tramways de partments must have made an en ormous profit over the match, but perhaps they neglected to confer with Plainnclothes .Constable Tees dale, MJL-A.., as to the possible num ber of passengers. Back to Australia/ despite the smoke barrage of the pimperialistic Press and the somewhat flat sec tarian snuffles of certain public men, is Dr. Mannix, Archbishop of Melbourne. Australian Democracy ? rises to its feet to welcome him, realising th3t his enemies are, by a curious coincidence, also the ene mies of Democracy. The popular Doctor's utterance since he arrived have been very restrained, for he, like the friends of ...

On Wednesday last, August 10th, West Australia got one of its best advertisements -in years—by licking Victoria at football. Everybody in the State felt, naturally, somewhat in holiday Humour. These inter State visits of exponents of our na tional games carry something of the ambassadorial with them. If the attendances had .been meagre, the State would' have been di^raced, and -its guests slighted; it was, in consequence, the least the Govern ment could do to facilitate the atten dance of its own employees at the match. f)t We do not say a regula...

nc Golden wests centenary c\ ? To the Editor.. Sir. — Your fine suggestion to cele brate the first centenary of Western Australia, by holding an exhibition is indeed opportune, and should , commend itself to every right thinking person. The area of our country is immense, and practically everything can be grown and manu factured within its borders. What is our population now compared with what it will be in eight years? I sincerely trust, sir. interest shall increase between now and 1928, when the exhibition will be a reality, and the thoughts of the people of the world turned toward Western Australia. — Yours, etc., , F. C. SWAINE. The Arcade Studios. The Bridgetown bridge coterie are very worried over the number of seven of diamonds they have receiv ed of late.

Belmont [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 13 August 1921
Belmont ™v ? (By 'Solon.') Mr. A. E. Rowe has presented a football premiership cup for com petition amongst the local schools. A start will be made immediately with the competition. Great inter est is being shown by the parents, and Tommy Shaw and Tommy Dar by have already backed Redcliffe S.S. to win. On a .recent Saturday afternoon two town teams played a match on our local reserve, the outstanding feature of which was the language of one of the players, who thought he should have been given a free kick. We certainly do object to this behaviour, and trust it shall not occur again. If it -should the squealer will probably get a dozen free kicks, but not directed goal wards. , What a mockery! Welter races with a seven-stone one-pound mini mum, with an apprentice allowance. Cut it out; give us the real thing: let us have an 8-st. minimum wel ter without allowances. Men like Audus. Barden, and others, who have grown heavy at the game, should receive some consideration. But it appears ...

What's Wrong With carter? [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 13 August 1921
WiMt's wroif will carter? Why no Carnival' .game for Umpire Carter He is admittedly West Aus tralia's leax^ng- central. The League admits 'this when it pays him a re tainer oj' £2 2s per' -weok. It has never adopted the procedure before. Why is this retainer paid? SSimply so that local foqitball would have at least one first-claiss umpire at its disposal. 'Then comes the Carnival. Most t bought that Carter would have had at least, one match. But no; the High and Mighty High Falutin* Aus ti-alian Council, it seems, appoints the u.mpires, and passes over our leading ol ficial. Our Ijeagne stands by, and uOters no protest. What a spineless boldy! Are ovir local lootibail legisla tors overawed, by Messrs. Brownlaw, Ilickey and Cr-.? It would appear so. This clique of, Easterners care not for our Leagoie. Its one object seems to be to 'put the boot' into Carter, ap parently because away back in 1914, he refused t-o work at scab rates.

AUGUST 13, 1921 Government Printer in Court NASTY REMARKS BY NORTH-MORE [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 13 August 1921
? AUGUST 13, 1821. ftve mem Printer in cowl NASTY REMARKS BY NORTH Government Printer Simpson sus tained a nasty jar in the Arbitration Court on Wednesday last, when his Honour Justice Northmore handed out his candid ' opinion of Mr. Simpson's attitude. Mr. Simpson, it seems, naa ever busied himself in the matter ?£ the classification of Mr. Eames, a clerk in his department. Public money had been spent in telegrams to the Government Printers in other States asking for particulars regard.' ing pay and classification of men occupying similar positions, with the result that a very good case was made out in Mr. Eames' favour. Now, so far as Mr. Eames is con cerned, 'The1 Mirror'' wishes him luck. Justice Northmore's objec tion was taken— and we think pro perly, to Mr. Simpson's. action. The evidence could have been obtained, quite easily in other ways, but it ?was not Simpson's place to get it. As Government Printer, his duty is- to run the works as cheaply as pos. sible, consistent wit...

men and memories. Stationer and Newsagent Gib bney, J.P., of Greer.bushes, is a live , live wire, and to hear his opinion about the gratuity bond brigands is worth going, a long way to listen to. One ol the whitest men treading this mortal coil is Inspector Dick Shanahan, of the Fcemantle Tram ways. Big of frame, and large of heart, Dick is always there to lend a helping hand to^any and every cause. Is a cricketer of undoubted merit, and sports the regulation flannels with the East 'Fremantle club every season. Wally Lawton is without doubt the most popular garage proprietor of Fremantle. Wally is a practical man, who knows the business from Alpha to Omega, and dazes one with talk of sparking plugs, car burettors, gears, throttles, etc. Had the misfortune to lose his mother last week, and earns our sincerest sympathy., More Lawtons would be a valuable acquisition to the d\s trict. Jim Bull, Brown and Dureau's Fremantle manager, is one of the smartest executives the company has on it...

In fact, nothing at all to occupy the time and energies of the health sleuth, Mr. Berry. So in order to justify his existence he is compelled to lie in wait for business men who make an oversight in an application for a permit, and show his zeal and brain capacity by summonsing them. Our readers will remember the last Movie Ball, a splendid turnout, well managed, and well decorated. It was necessary to use both the Town HaU and St. Gecrge's Hall for the occasion, and to make lighting and other alterations for the night. It was also necessary to obtain a permit from the Health Authorities. The application was made and granted. Owing to an error of the typiste in drafting the application the Town Hall only was specified instead of both halls. .The permit naturally only related to the T...
