Amongst the Ladies. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 5 March 1921
Amongst the, Ladies. (By "Little Polly.!') I It is only a boor who would bc so unjust - and. he would have to be even a misiogynist- as, to attempt to deny thc charms of woman, or to repulse that social intercourse which is generally acknowledged to be thc elevator ánd purifier and haló of soc- iety. The fáct is that she is indispen- sable to'' human happiness; as much as she is to regeneration; But unfortunately, like her "wusser " half ? she has! /radiated into endless varie- ties, some of which retain but few, ¡ traces of the original and ideal " min- istering angel." I am- not exactly in accord w th the epigrammatic wom- an as " uncertain,, coy,. and hard to please,, and* variable as the; shade; by I the light, quivering aspen made,",'for thc plain reason that in this respect her very whims are' captivating. But, as I said, there are transform- ed varieties which give one .the cold shivers, apart altogether from any at-> tachments of old-maidism, or fretful- ness, or hen-peck...

RATEPAYERS AND STRIFEMONGERS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 5 March 1921
RATEPAYERS AND STRIFE MONGERS. The fact that there are selfish bad gers-in-a-burrovv and strife-mongers in practically every community, does not make us blind to the fact that there may be legitimate ca.:se for grievance amongst such people ; nor to the certainty that though fair minded and uprights citizens may sometimes be found in the company of, and co-operating with the strife mongers those decent citizens are willing and able to reason on such matters as may be in dispute. It is because we realise this and earnestly desire that all controversies and con- tentions be decided on the basis of reason and right, that we address ourselves-not to the strife-mongers but-to the decent minded reasonable section of those who allege that the municipal affairs cf Darwin are in a muddle and thc rates charged ex- orbitant. We reason wvith them, an« with thc public because we know il is the saner, wiser, and more con- stitutional way, rather than try tc effect .our purpose by any cabalis tic ...
