Fremantle fragments [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 8 August 1920
fremantlc Fragments And what a lovely mess they are making of the Naval Base. About a million squandered so far, and now thousands of pounds worth of machinery^ rusting and going to* waste. In addition to two steam cranes which have been there about eighteen months, three new ten-ton cranes arrived about a month ago, to be allowed to rot in the sea air of the Indian ocean. There was some wedding at St. Patrick's at the Port last week, when Miss Florence M. Whiteley, niece of Mrs. J. Bond, of Short street, got hitched to Mr. P. M. Mc Cafferty. The bride's father was the principle feature; he came down straight from the 'land,' and had to be persuaded to sub/titute the usual motor for the old-fashioned ft. It was with the confetti that , .-made the greatest hit. When y pelted him with it he got an noyed. 'Dammit,' he yelled, 'what are they throwing this cockie chaff about for?' ? ? * Monument^ Hill is the favourite resort of af least one. young cou ple. Dora and George reckon it is go...
Tweaks and Squeaks [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 8 August 1920
Tweaks and Squeaks As a man sows he also reaps ; As a woman sews she often weeps ! The Prince is more fortunate than has grandfather, who was bald be iore he came to the throne. He had scarce an hair-apparent. ? KJ ? 'Dad, what is a Royal Commis sion.? ' 'A Royal Commission, my son, is any number of people who are paid handsomely to and out what every body already knows.' A 'billy' may be a goat or a tin can. It 'is .usually dirty, smelly, and of no use; hence the term Billy Use. It is frequently noticeable in poli tics. There's only one way to avoid paying alimony. Stay single or stay married. We know that Smith is so named because years ago a man was named after his trade. Hence the numer ous tribes of Carpenter, Butcher, Wright, or Cook. What could Billy Hughes* for bears have possibly been? A gentleman named Winterbot tom has a garage with the legend inscribed 'Dodge Cars.' It used to be 'Beware of passing trains.' He was very full, and on enter ing a billiard saloon, demanded a...

The Guillotine. Answers [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 8 August 1920
The Guillotine, Answers. Person (anonymous — sex un known) who sent in a yard and a half of Sewerage dub stuff, or some such title. — Thanks; you mean well. But does it not occur to you that every rag an earth is running a Limelight Club, or something of the sort? The Mirror is a paper of ideas, not of imitations. You might try it on the 'Cannington Cackle,' or the 'Stirling-street Staggerer.' J. D. (Leederville) : We don't know. Of course, Millington will claim that he did, but that's all bosh. In fact, he wasn't a member of any Labour organisation at the time. N.A.C.: You don't like the sec tarian twang about some of our ar ticles. Neither do we. We ask nothing better than to leave reli gion where it belongs — in the cup board where people keep the fam ilv skeleton. But when a waster like Hughes gets holds of a penny squirt, and squirts offal over all and sundry — including us — who'se re sponsible for the stink, we or Hughes? Haven't you got brains enough to see that the way they...

Yesterday's Football WEST PERTH V. SOUTH FREMANTLE. At Leederville OvaL [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 8 August 1920
Yesterday's Football. WEST PERTH V. SOUTH FRE MANTLE. At Leedervffle OvaL One of the surprising features of the match at LeedervUle yesterday was the almost perfect condition of the ground. Although heavy rains - had made the soil somewhat spongy there was none of that 'lake' con dition *hat so often characterises and spoils our national games. ? Trotter had charge of the game, but it cannot be said that he was anything like a success. In the first quarter West Perth forced the play, and Craig kicking true, booted West's first goal. This was followed later by another, but South's defence work' improved. Taylor's fine play was one of the brilliant features of the quarter, in deed with Adams and Taylor were' the most conspicuous men on the ground. The second quarter was a repeti tion of the first. West's combina tion was too clever for South's mere weight, and when the teams retired for- the half-time rest West Perth were in the ascendency. The third term saw the seasiders on the impr...
The Brass Hats. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 8 August 1920
The Brass Hats. The Brass Hats get it hot, too, and thousands of regimental officers will cherish a kmdly thought of Phillip Gibbs for the much-needed/ dressing down which he administers to the staff. Decent, well-behaved Brass Hats there were indeed, but they seemed few amongst the horde of pups who led the gay life out of sight of the Front lines: 'This sense of bitterness became intense to the point of fury, so that a young staff officer, in his red tabs, with a jaun ty manner, was like a red rag to a bull among battalion officers and men, and they desired his death ex ceedingly, exalting his little person ality, dressed in a well-cut tunic and fawn-coloured riding-breeches, and highly polished top boots, into the supreme folly of 'The Staff,' which made men attack impossible positions, sent down conflicting or ders, issued a litter of documents called by an ugly name — containing impracticable instructions to the torment of the adjutants and to the scorn of the troops. This hatr...

Looking in much improved health Mr. James Brennan, of the House of Brennan, and founder of the sport of Trotting in Western Aus Traua, was greetea oy a large num ber of friends when the Orvieto came alongside at Fremantle on Friday last. A much travelled and observant man, Mr. Brennan can converse most interestly on the in dustrial, social and political situa tion and outlook in Great Britain, America, and other countries he has visited. As a Trotting enthusiast, he visited the principal tracks, and while in his native town in Ireland donated £100 in prizes at the local dub meeting which he attended.

The Opening of P-P-Parliament [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 8 August 1920
The Opening of P-P-Parliament Parliament opened with the usual flummery. Guv. Newdegate arriv ed in state, his millinery illuminated vyith henfeathers and a body guard of Boy Scouts. He read a long windy address from the Legislative Council chair. Horse hair wigs of President, Speaker, and clerks bob bed, the Usher of the Black Rod (arrayed like little Lord Fountle roy) jazzed round the chamber. The Sergeant-at-Arms grabbed his mace more firmly. More like a nursery play than a gathering of grown men. Then His Ex. stumbled and nearly fell as he left the chair, brass hats. and curled wigs bobbed again, and members filed out self-consciously as men feel when forced to clown or pageant. The Governor's Speech was a poor old thing. Percy Brun ton could have done a lot better. But one feature stood out v greatly to the credit of His Ex.— he didn't write it himself. A long list of questions in both Houses, and then the Government put up four of the dullest and dreariest speakers from a part...
War Loans and Brass Hats (To the Editor, "Sunday Mirror.") [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 8 August 1920
War Loans and Brass Hats (To the Editor, 'Sunday Mirror.') Sir, — I see Billy Hughes and his Brass Hats are again appealing to the public to subscribe to a Peace Loan for the benefit of Returned Soldiers who fought for Australia. Precious little the men who did the fighting are likely to get out of it. They may get what is left after Hughes and his political friends and grabbers and the brass hat gang, and so on, have helped themselves. Jimmy Mitchell, the man you called Starve-Crow Jimmy, on account of his childish tyranny to Civil Ser vants, let off a lot of hot air about repaying the soldiers for what they had done for Australia. The best way for Jimmy to repay the sol diers would be for him to cash some of Billy's War Bonds— especially to men who work for €he State Gov ernment. Then a bloke called Tal bot Hobbs got up and blew out his bags about the war. Precious lot he saw of the war— sitting back on his seat in some comfortable cha teau whilst the diggers did the hard ;yacker....
Under the Lash REIGN OF BLUE TERROR. AT NORTH FREMANTLE POLICE METHODS AT THE PORT SUBURB. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 8 August 1920
Undep -t1at& Lasli REIGN OF BLUE TERROR. \ '? AT NORTH FREMAVNTLE. POLICE METHODS AT THE PORT SUBURB. ^ ' There are many good men -in the Police Force — men too good to be under the Black hand Jurisdiction of the present Commissioner — but there are also some who are not quite so good. Fremantle had experience or many of the latter sort in the days following the historic Wharf Fight when Mr. Colebatch led his Police Force into the horrible mess at Bloody Sunday. For weeks following on May 4th the Police Department crowded into the Port uni formed hoodlums and thug-policemen whose brutal methods for a time total ly eclipsed the saner and more humane methods- of the local police force who knew Fremantle and were themselves known, and respected by its citizens. Whilst these licensed hooligans held sway no man was safe in the Fremantle streets and it almost seemed as tho' the Department backed by all sections of the kept Press was doing its damned est to create trouble and furth...
RAGTIME RAILWAYS. THE BARN CALLED A "STATION" AT FREMANTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 8 August 1920
RAGTIME RAILWAYS. THE BARK CALLED A 'STATION' AT FREMANTLE. — u — The railway service between Perth and Fremantle has certainly improved, but not so the terminal station at Fre mantle. The times of departure of trains is still written with mdecypher able chalk on any illegible blackboard, despite the ' fact that a dial could be easily and ^cheaply made in the Depart ment's own shops. Passengers on some of the trains from Perth, being landed on the 'island' platform, are forced to grope their way through the almost Egyptian darkness of a so-called sub way. But it is on Sundays the comedy is played at its best. When a train ar rives with its extra number of Sunday passengers j only one gate of the cage fence is opened, and the hundreds of people — mqa, women, and children — have to fight and crush their way out 'through a two-foot aperture. One dav someone will get hurt and the Railway - people will put on another man and open a second exit slot — after the ac cident. It was 'last Sun...
NARROWNESS. OUR CIVIC IDEAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 8 August 1920
NARROWNESS. OUR CIVIC IDEAL. — u — 'The Mirror' desire-»4o recommend a new crest for the City of Perth, to vrit, an effigy of the aperture whereby one inserts a coin into a weighing ma chine. Should this strike our worthy fj-mrtti]lnT~c nc +i\n nig in A i^ocifm +tiA slot might be ornamented with Sagital ends, after the fashion of the inverted broad arrows that grace the facade of the Town Hall tower. A)ur municipal authorities have ele vated narrowness to the dignity of a civic ideal. Perth is probably the only modern city in the white world that carries on its main business in an alley way. It is probably the only city of its size that crosses a magnificent river by means of a wretched^ worm-eaten causeway. And it is doubtful whether any other city on the map (and likely to stay pn it) would, at this hour of the day, consent to the building of 'houses' on 30ft. frontages. Councillor Mitchell made himself conspicuous the other day by first ob jecting to a proposal of that nature, an...
Mimes, Mummers & Melody-Makers [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 8 August 1920
Mimes, Mummers & Mdody-Makers Seen to advantage with Lawson's clever company at the Melrose last week, Frank Shephard, erstwhile of Ron Shafto's dramatic players. Frank has been in town for some time; he fits his part welL It was Rita Starr's birthday the other week, and nobody noticed it. At the Vogues and Vanities this week, La Belle Napoli, the minia ture opera. The story is good, the acting splendid. Charlie Zoli makes a most remarkable '.Count.' There are five of the original members of Sidney James' Pierrot Pie in Perth at present. Ina Bis sett, G. W. Desmond, Cyril North cote, and Lou Mitchell at the Shaf tesbury, and W. J. Saunders at the Melrose. Saunders, by the way, is resting with a sore thumb until the storm clouds roll by. There never was a company like Lawson's; nor a story so fitted to his wonderful talent as the 'Mon- key's Paw.' The story is by W. W. Jacobs, and is as old as the hills; but never has it been presented with such dramatic vividness, never has ...
Boxing THE COMING OF EUROPEAN CHAMPIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 8 August 1920
Boxing THE COMING OF EUROPEAN CHAMPIONS. There was no one more surprised than Fred. Kay himself when Stone was awarded the verdict at His Ma jesty's Theatre last month. The ex champion welter thought he had won -well, and is prepared to add dig-, ?nity to his belief by fighting the American , again. This contest will eventuate at the Shaftesbury The atre on Tuesday night, and will be for the Australian title. A preliminary will be fought be tween Nelson and Cottrell. The .headquarters of Australian boxing, the Sydney Stadium, has re ceived advice from England as to the men who are desirous of visit ing this country to participate in boxing contests. Ledoux, who stopped Jim Higgihs, England's crack bantamweight, in a few rounds, finds that he will be unable to leave his native country for the present. Eugene Criqui, who' boxed 20 exciting rounds with Jimmy Wilde, and who finished off the redoubtable 'Digger' Evans, will be one of the party, f and will be accompanied by Francis Charle...

WHEN THE SLEEPER WOKE. A Monologue (After Poe). Oh Jimmy Mitchell, Jimmy [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 8 August 1920
WHEN THE SLEEPER WOKE. A Monologue' (After Poe). . . Oh Timmv MitchelL Jimmy Mitchell, oh?. What say of it? What say of conscience grim, that spectre in my path? ? — Chamberlayne: Pharronida. Let me call myself (for the pre sent) Jimmy Mitchell. The fair page now lying before me need not be sullied with my real appellation. My turpitude has been already too much an -object for scom,. for horror, for detestation. To the uttermost regions of the globe have not the indignant electric sparks published my unparalleled infamy? Men usual ly grow base by degrees. From me, in an instant, all virtue dropped bodily as a mantle. What chance— What one .event brought this evil thing to pass? Bear with me while I Telate! My friends, I have slept long. I am now (too late! ) I assure you my fellow citizens awake! Awake, yes awake, at last! I long for the sympathy — for the pity — of my fellow men. I would fain, fain h?ve them believe that I have been in some measure the slave of cir cumstances beyon...
