A Talk about Our Beautiful Birds (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times — 21 June 1927
A Talk about Our Beautiful Birds (To the Editor.) Sir.-Having read the Council meetings in the Darwin preta and after a lapse of two or three meetings when at each meeting if anything brought up which did not suit certain councillors they would not. sjt it out, but bolt out of the door, thus no quorum, no meeting, no business, and before the retreat, bickerings and squabbling, not pertaining to Council business, these city fathers, or Bil- lingsgate fishwives have used the council as the chopping block. It h time the ratepayers used a little direct action, and tell- these old women to get-resign hollis bolus, the lot, and wash their dirty linen in their own back yards, not in the Town Hall at council meetings. The ratepayers feel sick. The opening of the last meet- ing with a full council, expected them to forget all their personalities and to get down to business in earnes'; hut, the Billingsgate fishwives got to work again like a lot of street arabs dragged up by the hair of the h...
De Mortuis Nil Nisi Bon[?]m (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times — 21 June 1927
De Mortuis Nil Nisi Bon m (To the Editor.) Sir,-Re protection of the Old Cemetery. I notice Watts' irreverent remark at the last Council meeting viz,-''Those who are in cannot get out, and those who are out do not want to get in." His mother died a few days ago and I presume she will be buried in a cemetery in the district she died in. No doubt he would be pleased to see goats and horses de- positing their droppings on her grave if the cemetery were not protected. His remark may be befitting over his glass of beer«before a public house bar. but certainly not at a council or nublic meeting. RATEPAYER
