Thumb-nail Sketches OF SOME OF THE LEADERS. Mr. F. DARCEY, [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 1 August 1920
Thumb-nail Sketches OF SOME OF THE LEADERS. Mr. F.DARCEY, Secretary Disputes' Committee. The tactician of the Services — able, as- tute, diplomatic. A fine platform speaker. Seven years secretary of the Teachers' Union— worked day and night at it, only ultimately to be rejected by the majority of his colleagues because of his Labour views. Remained on the Union Ex- ecutive, however, kept quiet, and watched developments. . . (sic!) Blames Labour for sitting back when Scaddan and his Ministers hit the Services to leg so badly. Twenty six years' service in Education De- partment. Saw the Teachers' Union rebuilt (it slumped to 190 from 792 within 18 months of his relinquish- ing the reins). Became secretary of Grand Council last year. ,
MR. H. M LEIGHTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 1 August 1920
MR. H. M. LEIGHTON. A far-seeing gentleman this, too far-seeing for many. Never smiles so sweetly and calmly as when hard- est up against it, and not even a &nbsp; vacuum cleaner could obliterate that smile, underneath which as a settled, determined purpose that has proved of immense value in this desperate struggle. Leighton is ever as cool as the proverbial cu- cumber. Never been known to be cross.
MR. E. G. STENBERG. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 1 August 1920
MR. E. G. STENBERG. Who does not know dear old Stenny, of the Electoral Depart- ment? Alas! the strain of the last three weeks has been too much for the old chap, and he has had to spend the last few days in bed. For- tunately he is again recovering his punch. Stenny is one of our best citizens, and his idea in accepting office on the committee was to do his best to help the dispute to a quick and reasonable solution. There is not a brainier man on the committee, nor a better citizen.
MR. J. GJEFFREY. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 1 August 1920
MR. J. G JEFFREY. "Jeff," as he is familiarly known, wears a smile that would do credit to George Robey, until such time as circumstances impel him to move that the exemption of certain people be withdrawn, or somebody is being reported for scabbing, and then, like his cobbers, Darcey and O'Mahony. Jeff is a holy terror on figures and statistics. They were wise people who placed Jeff on the committee for he has, metaphorically speaking, a hundred-ton hammer punch for all who are disloyal to their colleagues or their class, and a reasoning force which is the envy of most of his confreres.
MR. E. A. MANN. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 1 August 1920
MR. E. A. MANN. The darling of the gods surely, and a natural leader of men. As Government Analyst he excels, and his training has led him to analyse the present trouble down to its minutest details. As a platform orator he is on his own, as a debat- er on the committee he is none the less able, while as editor in chief of the publicity committee he has dealt out straight lefts that have,time and again, knocked the stuffing out of the Mitchell Government. One of &nbsp; the most kindly of men, impulsive perhaps at times, E. A. has all the born instincts of the fighter. Con- stancy, consistency, courage of the highest order animate his every word and action. Truly, as Shake speare said of Brutus, shall we all ever be able to say also of A. E., "This was a Man indeed!" &nbsp; &nbsp;
The State Taxation Department LET THERE BE LIGHT, AND THERE WAS LIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 1 August 1920
The State Taxation Department LET THERE BE LIGHT, AND THERE WAS LIGHT. Some few weeks ago, there ap- peared in the daily press "startling" reports of how some Taxation De- partment officials were evading pay- ing their own taxes. But no report has since come to hand of how the Public Service Commissioner held an inquiry and completely exonerated the alleged offenders — who, the evidence show ed, had done nothing save hold back some returns for inquiry — a neces- sary procedure always carried out in the department. We submit the same publicity should have been given to the re- sult of the inquiry as was given to the so-called exposures. &nbsp; This is but one of the many dirty* ways of a hole and corner adminis- tration. It is almost beyond credit that men could be carpeted, let alone suspended, for so paltry an offence, but when the public learn something of the character and cali- bre of the head of the State Taxa- tion Department, we can assure them that all cause for surp...
No title [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 1 August 1920
"A Sporting Chance," at Shaftes- bury, was a sure winner last night. The Tree of Truth stunt had the audience rocking. * * * Elvie Stagpoole is the prettiest and daintiest dancer that has grac- ed the Shaftesbury floorboards for many a day. Her eccentric dances, however, are not suited to a lady — stick to the classics, Elvie ! * * * Miss Ina Milne, of the Vogues and Vanities, is the wife of Mr. Cedric Johnson, the director of the show. Ina has a pleasing way with her, and is very popular with music lov- ers. * * * Turf fans will be becoming movie &nbsp; fans this week ,when "The Thorough bred" will be showing at the Royal. Alice Joyce is the star, and reports say this is one of the best racing pictures yet shown. "The Monkey's Paw," with which John Lawson and Co. opened their second week at Melrose last night is perhaps, as a play, the best in the repertoire (it is by W. W. Jacobs, dramatised by Louis N. Parker, and was originally produced by Sir Cyril Maude). Lawson was gr...
Liars and Perjurers SECURE HUGHES' POLITICAL TRIUMPH. A GREAT WRONG RIGHTED. Sydney, July 30. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 1 August 1920
Liars and Perjurers SECURE HUGHES' POLITICAL TRIUMPH. &nbsp; A GREAT WRONG RIGHTED. Sydney, July 30. The conclusion of Mr. Justice Ew- ing, who conducted the Royal Com- mission of Inquiry into the cases of the I.W.W. prisoners was made available to-night. The recommen- dations include the immediate re- lease of Hamilton, Beasant, Moore, McPherson, Teen, and Fagin, all of whom this Honour considers, have been wrongly convicted, and of Glynn, Larkin, Beatty, and Grant, who have expiated their of- fences. In regard to Reeve, &nbsp; the Royal Commission is of opinion that his sentence of 10 years is not excessive. As far as King is concerned, however, Mr. Justice Ewing, whilst holding him guilty, recommends a reduction of his two cumulative sentences. The Commissioner declares that the evi- dence of four witnesses — Davis, Goldstein, Louis Goldstein, Scully, and McAlster— was the evidence of liars and perjurers. Hughes won his two elections on the strength of the I.W.W. ...
JIM MOORE. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 1 August 1920
JIM MOORE. Caricaturist, the man of ideas, of brains, of unflagging zeal in the in- terests of the cause, an optimist of optimists, a reviver of saddened spirits. As a boon companion of unrestrained mirth he excels, as one who can persuade a man against his better judgment that he is thirsty, and can cause that man to exercise practical amelioration for both, he stands alone. Verily, he could kid a duck to carry an umbrella. Such &nbsp; is Jim, light hearted, irresponsible Jim. Generous, kindly, compan- ionable, loquacious, witty Jim — a Gratiano of Gratianos, Micawber of Micawbers. May he never grow old. We remember, too, that Mi- cawber was a splendid success as an Australian city Mayor, was it not? This fact is often forgotten in Micawber's life. So likewise, we hope, our Jimmy! &nbsp;

Midland Notes! [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 8 August 1920
Midland Notes It is rumoured that a picture mag nate is thinking of acquiring an interest in a Hay St. Cafe.— (Contributed by Kola Girl'). m * a Arthur Flint's bike shop seems to be the rendezvous of all the cycles in Midland. No matter what hour one passes, there are generally about half a dozen grid-irons reposing against the verandah posts. ? ? ?

A "BUSINESS" CALL. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 8 August 1920
A 'BUSINESS' CALL. — - It is frequently alleged that the work of Government Departments is not carried out in a -business-like manner. We are quite entitled, therefore, to take some comfort from the following little incident, which took place recently in a Gov ernment office, and which goes to show that one 'business' firm, at least, would benefit by a spring cleaning of its brains department. 'Business' Caller: 'Is this the X.YJZ. Department??' (Had he looked at the doorplate he would have seen it was not). 'Unbusinesslike' Public Servant: 'No. You will find that Depart ment at ? .' B.C.: 'Umph ! That's right at the other end of the city. I'm busy. Perhaps you could tell me about this. I represent Z* & Co., and the. X.YJZ. Department have sent us an order for another lot of stores. Our manager wants to know if they are to be delivered at the same place at the last lot.' The 'order' was handed to the Public Servant. A gentle smile overspread his features when he read the sli...
Pars—Pungent and Polite [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 8 August 1920
Pats — Pungent and Polite frequent 'West' ad. — 'Wanted, patriotic person to cash Gratuity Bond.' No good. Digger! That lit tle stunt's played o*it — until the next war. The 'patriotic person' who'll cash the Bonds is good old Posterity. m ? ? The Maxillary Society opened its ses sion on Thursday. Our zoological editor attended, and is pleased to be able to put forward an interesting theory regarding the origin of ? the mace. This remarkable implement, he says, presents, unmistakable signs of having been modelled after the inferior maxilla of Equus asinus, perhaps after the identical example ueed by Samson to destroy the Philistines # ? ? Win. Horrors Hughes is introducing an 'Industrial JJeace Bill' — News item. When the Greeks pretended to retire from Troy they left a wooden horse at the gates 'of the town.

A Scurvy Trick TO ESCAPE GRATUITY PAYMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 8 August 1920
A Scurvy Trick — ? KJ ? TO ESCAPE GRATUITY PAYMENTS. Over a hundred Gratuity Bonds have been dishonoured at the Com monwealth Sub-Treasury, Perth. Why? The official phrase is 'You're de ferred.' This has been snapped out at over a hundred men, many of whom have served right through on the Penin sula and in France. The only reason for this scurvy action is that the men concerned were either under age, or over age, when they enlisted. Could a meaner, more reptilian, more Hughes-like, low-down black guardly subterfuge be imagined — by anyone but Wm. Horrors Hughes?
Peace is Loaned [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 8 August 1920
Peace is Loaned ? Mother Hubbard's cupboard is bare, and the pore dawg wants a bone. Buy Peace Bonds and Help the 'digger.' Which one? The 'dinkum' chap, or Bounder Bill with the borrowed hat?

THE BRUTAL 'UN! OUT-ATROCICISED BY GENTLE YANK.SAN DOMINGO HORRORS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 8 August 1920
THE BRUTAL 'UN! tOUT-ATROClCISEO BY CENTLE YANK. SAN DOMINGO HORRORS. 'ihe home of Jose Uepeda, district . of Bainoa, Santiago de Caballefos (San Domingo), who was suspected of hiding arms, was searched at midnight. His two daughters were forced jto appear nude before a posse of / American troops, and in order to make Cepeda confess he was tortured, the soles of bis feet being burned so that, he could no longer walk.' 'It is true that in their political upheavals the Dominicans have more than once suffered unjust persecutions, summary executions, etc.. but never had they known the 'water torture,' the cremation of -women and children, torture by torsion, nor the dragging of an old man, a septuagenarian, at the tail of a horse at midday in the Piazza of Hato Mayor.' These quotations are not from an anti-American source, but from an American newspaper, the New Jersey 'Monitor.' San Domingo, in the West Indies, was an independent State until the day it Joined U.S.A. in the Great War ^o...
People About & About People [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 8 August 1920
People About & About People Last -week a Minister of the Crown with a friend, on their way from Hampton Plains, pulled up at the Feysville pubbery to have a 'spot.' While breasting the coun ter, an old bloke blew in and made himself known as one of * the Rampton Jewbelly workin' 'ands. The Minister's friend, a shareholder, being very anxious to glean the lat est information regarding the mine, 'shouted' for the amiable intruder, who on being interrogated, remark ed that he was afraid he would be offending the management if he im parted the information sought, pro testing that it would be unfair for him to let the latest developments be known. The shareholder ac cepted the explanation, and again 'shouted' for this wage slave para gon. A little later another worker from thejewbelly entered the bar, and placing himself as near as he could get to the shareholder, darkly hinted that if. he liked he could im part valuable information respect ing the mine, but was reluctant to do s...
