The Slate Taxation Department [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 8 August 1920
The Slate Taxation Department The Civil Service upheaval an* the inside workings of Government departments are matters that call urgently for rigid public enquiry. We take one that recently -caused a serious disturbance in the public mind, and we\ certainly expected the walls of Jericho would topple over at the expected exposures that loomed on the horizon at the State Taxation Department after insinu ations of dishonesty and roguery against a number of its officers. The public have patiently waited for the bomb. It was a rank dud, and only an exhibition of cheap and nasty fireworks, limelight, and bluff for the benefit of its originators. What a fiasco 1 These are the facts: The head of this department is an utterly discredited man in the eyes of all parties, and has been pitched out neck and crop from his position of Under-Treasurer, and the late Commissioner of Taxation put at the head of the State's finances. The ignominy of his position has made him more unscrupulous than ever ...
MORE MIDLAND NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 8 August 1920
MORE MIDLAND NOTES. — v— The burning question of the hour — How many canines does Mark Pape possess? He appears to have enough bow-wows to feed a Chinese mandarin for twelve months. The antics of one of the head serangs of the 'Army' would not. disgrace a chimpanzee or a commer cial traveller. If he were on the stage, or selling peanuts or some thing, he should by now have enough to retire on. He ridicules religion instead of furthering his cause. Congratulations to the Railway authorities for the 6.57 pjn. rattler (via Perth) to Fremantle, with three slip coaches. A good idea, which will catch on. Jack Bastow, the happiest man in the. W.A.G.R., has certainly done his duty to the State. His is one of (if not the) largest families in Mid land, and they are all a credit to him. Jack denies he has to call the roll every night. Poet Burns was missing from his old haunts for quite a few days late ly, and some of his cobbers would have it he was on his honeymoon. Midland Notes.
Australia House AND HER BUILDERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 8 August 1920
Australia House AMD HEE BUILDERS. The Savoy Hotel last Wednesday evening contained the annual meet ing and re-union of the West Aus tralian Institute of Architects (1892) under the presidency of Mr. A. R. L. Wright. Governor Newdegate ad umbrated old-new architecture with the best of 'em. He has views, too. He has ideas. What, we wonder, is the mental attitude of the average Australian architect as to Austra lian building of the future? Do we seek to build Perth into a brick Babylon or into a rounded em marbled Rome? .Jt is true we have not built Perth as Fremantle has been centred round a stony-hearted stepmother of a prison-house. Perth has fled from that idea. Messrs. Poole and Hardwick can settle (on paper) such problems in halfan hour with straight-edge, compass, and crayon to scale. Take any of the bizarrerie of Perth brick build ings, an incoherent non-co-operative made scheme. What of the archi tecture of after the war houses? What about their brickwork? Re ports about metho...
INDIVIDUALITY IN DRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 8 August 1920
INDIVIDUALITY IN DRESS. Upon every woman has been bes towed a . certain manner- — tempera- ment, poise, call it what you wul— an individuality of her own, that makes her a little or a good deal dif ferent from other women, and it is this individuality or personality that she should study when dressing. She will tHus obtain a distinctive style in dress — a thing that counts for much and means much more than gorgeous materials and costly trim mings. Let individuality in dress, then, be the keynote of a woman's ward robe, not merely the blind following of fashion. Let her beware of ad opting this and that style simply be cause it happens to be the very last word of the authorities, for that does not necessarily imply that it will be at all suitable to her particular type. Very few women scorn the subject of dress, but very few, also, give due importance to the great question of personality when a new vogue sets in. Becoming or unbecoming, the new fashion is worn, and some times with di...
Echoes of the Strike A TRIO. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 8 August 1920
Echoes of the Strike A TRIO. The two highest paid posts in the WA. teaching profession for* those who view all the world through money spectacles, are considered by some to be the headmasterships of Perth Boys' School and Fremantle Boys' School. We do not for the moment consider here the second ary school headmastership, such as the Modern and other goldfields 'High School' secondary headmas terships. A headmaster, in our opinion, must be (or, should be) best a man of head, and discern ment of broad views, wide outlook, or as much as is possible so. Let us compare (not in pocket, but) in per formance the careers of Mr. J. P. Blair and Mr. T. C. Chandler, and say after the manner of Plutarch's parallelisms, or bisparallel, Mr. War drop. - Jtt Take Mr. J. P. Blair, who ' has been\ twenty years in educational circles. When headmaster of Bun bury, he received his commission, and was twice wounded. He has since his retunmaken a broader out look than militarism, and for his motto: The Bes...

Tyranny With Hie Trousers Off SANSCULOTTE HUGHES-GUILLOTINES FEDERAL OPPOSI TION— SCAB UNION ENCOURAGEMENT ACT— RAMMED DOWN THROAT— OF ORGANISED LABOUR. ' In the House of Representatives on Wednesday, August 4th , Mr. Hughes moved that the Industrial Peace Bill be declared an urgent measure. The motion was carried on a party division by 31 votes to 19. Mr. Hughes then moved that the second reading stage be completed by 3.30 pjn. on Friday, August 6, the Committee stage be completed by 10 p.m. on Thursday, August 12, and the remaining stages by 10.30 p.m. on August 19. - This procedure is known as 'the guillotine.' Parliament is recog nised by the British Constitution as a deliberative assembly — not as an expensive ballot box for the record ing of the opinions of a catch ma jority. But, of course, Wm. Morris Hughes, the foreigner that rules Australia, has repeatedly demon strated that he knows nothing of the British Constitution. The only thing he' knows is his master's voice — the ...
Legal Confiscation COMMONWEALTH SERVICE IN ARMS [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 8 August 1920
Legal Confiscation COMMONWEALTH SERVICE IN ARMS. *-- Last week we had a good deal to say about the Federal Government's attempt to destroy the Arbitration principle as far as it concerned the Federal . Service organisations. This week we are busy on another phase of the. ?Rnnsniintte. Tvrannv of Hughes and Co.— the Industrial Peace Bill. Meantime, the Com monwealth Service in this State is gettjng busy to demand the main tenance of the right to approach the Arbitration Court. A mass meeting of every branch of the Com monwealth Public Service is called for Wednesday next, August 11th, at 8 pjn., in St. George's Hall, when a series of resolutions proposed by the Tasmanian Branch will be sub mitted for approval. While most, of the members of the Jewish community have contri buted generously to the Zionist movement, some of those whose mfans would have best allowed have subscribed nothing at all. A very noticeable instance is that of two brothers, both finan ciers. The one with the smal...

(Lifted by Harry O.) New suburban journals are springing op around us like mushrooms, and as some of them do aot receive the prominence they deserve we propose from time to time to reprint extracts from those worthy of no tice.

Bleats from Bellevue [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 8 August 1920
Bleats from Bcllevue — rt — The newly-elected committee of the Mechanics' Institute have got well into their stride, and are work ing with an energy that shows they are intent on delivering the goods. Tudeine bv the way they have left the barrier, the finances of the hall should soon show a substan tial credit balance, and the build ing that the late Col. Todd took such a fatherly interest in will reap the reward of good and faithful ser vice by a thorough renovation. We have a real live aristocratic bred racehorse training at Bellevue, and for months past have watched him exercise, taking a delight in his grooming, discussed what particular leaf of silver beet he favoured, and generally regarded. him as one of us, knowing that when the eventful day arrived, and the correct whisper would go forth, all Bellevue punt ers would take the necessary risks to increase their banking accounts. When Outlaw Knight ran Yardieto half a neck at Goodwood local punters woke up to the fact that livi...
STOP WORK ETAOI ETA..DAM STOP PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 8 August 1920
STOP WORK ETAOI ETA ..DAM STOP PRESS. Late last night the police awoke in time to unearth a devilish Shin ?Fane-cum-Bolshevick-cum - Mannix plot. The plotters intended to seize certain shops and offices in the Ster ling-street district and confiscate all copies of the well-known pomes, 'My Son,' 'Gutter Ballads,' and 'Scentinal Sonnets,' the latter two of which are expensife folumes bound in Japanese-made Union Jacks. It has been difulged that the ulti mate destination of the junk was to be a bonfire on the Esplanade, where they were to have been pub licly burned, together with a pile of Joe O'Neil's Diggers' War Bonds. The brave CXD.'s who frustrated the plot have been made life mem bers of the Pig Club.

A bright little gathering at lie Hotel Orient, Fremantle, farewelled him and made long and enthusiastic speeches.

TROTTING POSTPONED [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 8 August 1920
TROTTING POSTPONED. The executive of the Trotting As- sociation decided yesterday morning to put off the meeting advertised for evening. The condition of the track after the heavy rains was certainly too heavy for a successful meeting. The weather is regrettable, among other causes, in that the founder of trot- 'ting in this State, Mr. James Bren- &nbsp; nan, having returned this week, would have received an ovation &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; from the many notaries of this fine sport last night.

Peter Brooks takes his popular Shaftesbury Company to the Fre- mantle Town Hall next Tuesday for one night only. A treat in store for the Port people. Inquirer. — No, you are entirely wrong, Judge Rooth's pay does not stop whilst he as sick in hospital. The position of an Arbitration Court Judge is very different to that of the ordinary industrial worker on whose wages and conditions he sits in judgment. Mr. P. Brunton announces that he will be on the Esplanade this after- noon. As Mr. Brunfon is always on the 'Nade on Sunday, this is a fitting piece of news for the Stop Press. Mr. B. will have the Sunday Mirror on sale. Congratulations to Trainer Tom Lauder on his winning double — Good Turn and Ayrton— at Canning yesterday. Pa Glowrey, of the Palace. "I remember a conversation I once had in London with Oliver Herford. As we talked we spoke of London not yet having American 'skyscrap ers.'
