NOTES AND NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 2 March 1921

NOTES AND NEW8. ' A meeting of specially selected ratepayers has been called for this (Wednesday) night to take steps to escape their civic responsibilities. . ¿Mr. E. V. y. Brown holds .a big auction sale of utilities at »his mart où Saturday next. There is Ino' re-J s^rve.' 9 Attention is directed to auction salí of furniture and household goods at Mrs. Callan's residence, on Friday evening next at 7.30. Mr. Gribbon is the auctioneer. Í . . - The Administrator desires that the visit of Mr. Poynton be as widely known as possible, so ^that residents of Darwin and the interior may have ample time to present their require- ments to him. The unfortunate men who were committed for trial from Katherine and who were acquitted on one charge, were finally discharged on Monday, the Crown failing to have its witnesses in attendance. Mr. Rob- erts sought an adjournment which Mr. Barrett successfully opposed, His Honor very properly declining to grant the adjournment. At the Police Couxt on Tue...

AN AVATAR'S MISSION [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 2 March 1921

AN AVATAR'S MISSION The announced visit ofMr. Poyn- ton, Minister for Home and Territor- ies, can hardly be classed with the historic visit of George to Dublin which event Byron so scathingly re- ferred to in his "Avatar." George went ostensibly as a Messiah or ava- tar to the land which, as Byron says, " He loved as his bride/'How he loved his bride may be gleaned from the fact that her forlorn corpse was on its way to her native Germany at the very moment that George left on his carousal tour to Dublin. Of course, Mr. Ponyton would hardly aim at such pranks, and indeed it is within the grounds of possibility that he wiii be not a Georgian but~a veritable ava- tar. The only suspicious phase ot the announced visit is that a make believe, and not the real object of the visit has been announced. " It is a well-known tact that much of the personal, and even polTtical and social variance which irritates and in- jures, is attributable tn lack of mut- ual acquaintance and knowledge. Per n...

Telegraphic news is still cut off. Hence the entire absence of our us- ual budget from this issue. Yesterday was the historic 4th of March-one of America's most im- portant national days. Abrogation of pojwer by self, is one of the first evil things which leads to final loss of power. Nothing like self-reliance. The heaviest rain of the season fell this morning. ^\W!SÊÊÊÊtL

THE WARATAHS' " LUCK." (To the Editor " Standard.") [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 5 March 1921

THE WARATAHS' " LUCK." (To the Editor " Standard.") Sir,-Lately 1 have seen many al- lusion's in the Press to Waratah's "Usual good luck" or "Unsport manlikc behavior" etc., so may I put before thc public a few facts, not to gain - sympathy, but at least to prove that we are trying to "play the game" against rather heavy odds. Since the first two rounds wc have lost the following men all of whom are good players and individually would make a difference to any team: Burns, Muldoon, F. K. Walker, En- gel, Allinson, Bowden," and the more recent arrivals Stan Brown and Cameron, who were both unable to stay for the finals. Add to that total of eight we have four men disabled at present, Lampe, Lemon, Tregenza and Edwards.ïrégenza and Lampe may play for the finals but will both bc practically useless for any hard play. No more need be said except the fait that since the beginning of the season ¿Varatahs have always put their best team in the field and taken no thought of saving their men ...

Open Column. (We do not necessarily endorse the views expressed by correspondents.) (To the Editor). Sir,-This crusade in search oí de- faulters who have paid no State or' Federal Income Tax comes at a very inopportune time, when most people who have not paid find it hard to make ends meet. It is no fault of the people who refuse to pay to bc called upon to pay taxes dating years back that should have been collected at the proper season only for incom- petent Federal muddlers who are m> known, like the gentleman with the iron mask. These apostles of "Un-, der the lap " politics, who sit on vel- vet and pray ." Give us this day our daily bread '' -and the new Federal Capital-dont care and will not try to understand the rudiments of com- mon sense. 8 They have dilly-dallied with this tax collecting for three or four years, making fish of one and flesh of another. There is no dis- guising the fact that, since these tax- es were first put into operation thc Federal Authorities have f...

FEDERAL INCOME TAX. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 5 March 1921

FEDERAL INCOME TAX. The following figures from the Melbourne "Argus" are somewhat startling, though we have heard very little about threats to commandeer. Evidently Darwin is not a persona grata with the quite impartial Fed- eral Authorities : " Reference was raube by the Ac- ting Commonwealth Treasurer (Sir Joseph Cook) to statements in the press that only 2x6,000 people paid Commonwealth income tax out oi 2,000,000 citizens of 21 years of age. Sir Joseph Cook explained that many thousands of people escaped the law because the special deduc- tions allowed by law reduced theil incomes below the taxable limit Re- turns were received by the Taxation authorities from approximately 8oo, ooo persons, and companies through- out Australia. Of these 388,000 paie the tax in the financial year 1918 191g, the latest period for whicl statistics were available. Disscctioi of these figures in order to discovc: the classes of persons who had lod ged returns was at present a difficul matter. r^i^'i...

MEETING OF 6ELECT RATE- PAYERS A SHOCK AND A COLLAPSE In last issue of the " Northern Standard" appeared, by way of pre- monition a statement to thc effect that a meeting of " Ratepayers in sympathy .with" certain desires of thc promoters of fhe « meeting was called by private circular fer Wed- nesday night. As a result a number cf other (uninvited) ratepayers were present, and the " Meeting " was held. But what a meeting ! Not more than about half a dozen of the " Select" ratepayers invited were pre- sent, but there were a score or two cf others and when the conveners of the cabalistic meeting began slowly to realise the way their "Plot had failed" they became gradually sub- dued and were filled with consterna- tion. The following is the circular as sent to the special :-.nd "Sympa- thetic" coterie who were expected to attend and fix things up as the " Voice cf thc ratepayers " : RATEPAYERS' DEFENCE .
