CAUSE AND EFFECT. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 25 June 1921
CAUSE AND EFFECT. (By PORCUPINE.) Thc repudiation by the Hughes' Government of " ti e agreement to construct the direct transcontinental railway has had, in many ways, an evil and deteriorating effect on the whole of the Northern Territory, and particularly on the pastoral and mining industries. The cost of keep- ing stations supplied, per medium of waggons, at so much a ton, and the consequently high droving rate, ef- fectually cripples the small stock owners and forces them to sell out to the larger companies, thus adding to the already enormous monopoly of the beef trade by capitalists. The same argument applies tc miners ; a working man, even if he has the good luck to strike a decent show/is too often forced to dispose of same ow'ng to lack of funds to pay the high cost of getting his ore to market. The large area of Central Austra- lia suitable for fruit growing can never be utilised until communica- tion with Southern markets is as- sured, and this assurance can only be given...

I (haye been in some queer places in different parts of the. world, but in ».one that strikes one as more we- ird than the delta of the gulf in j Papua, through which' we were tra* elling on a 20-ton ketch from Port Moresby to the Fly River. At times it horrifies with its utter unseemliness; at others it fascinates withj its queer beauty. Imagine a vast* flat plain, of sticky, grey, oozy mud, over 100 miles long and half as wide. Plant this over as thick as fur, ! some parts with the uninviting nianjgrove/others with , some of the most beautiful palms God ever cre- ated. Then;, here and there, stuff it thicjeer still with a varied assort- ment of tropical plants, over which ,is [thrown a ,web-like mantle of .creepers and orchids.

TELEPHONE WONDER. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 25 June 1921
TELEPHONE WONDER. I I Describing his person experien- ces 'with the wonderful new tele- phone repeating apparatus, a corres- pondent at Washington telegraphs that a new era in the history of tele- phony has opened. "From an arm chair in the Pana- ma buildings here," he states, "I ex- changed greetings with a friend at Havana and also with a wireless op- erator at Catalina Island, near. Los Angeles. Moreover, I heard as plain- ly as though we were all seated in one room the man at Havana talk- ing1 to the man at Catalina, and the latter replying: These voices passed over 115 miles deep sea cable and '55»ooo miles of land wires. The wire- less aparatas at Catalina automatic- ally repeated the messages,' operat- ing instantly. It was like telephon- ing from London to Calcuitta, or Calcutta to Melbourne. This ad- vance in telephony should prove a potent agent in unifying the English speaking peoples. If deep sea cables and wireless had been eliminated, > the conversation could have b...

.BEWARE OF TRESPASSERS. A public meeting is being held on Monday evening in the Town Hall, the 27th instant to "hear an explan- ation of the clauses of a proposed petition to the Government on rep- resentation and taxation matters, and SOME of the originators of the petition will speak. How naively the wording of these harmless phrases considering they emanate from our worthy townsman Mr. D. A. Roberts who has always (?) taken an extra prominent part in moving for reforms for this poor down-trodden Territory, that is accursed by a rotten system of Government that would even be a disgrace to the mediaeval ages. . ' It is no use saying one thing and meaning another ¡already there baa been a Public Meeting that endors- ed a Petition which the Government received demanding (1) thc release of those men in prison, or (2) im- prisoning the petitioners as they pledged themselves not to pay taxes ! until they received Representation as enjoyed by their fellow Austral- ians in all the States ...
