Under the Lash SOLDIER MENDICANTS. A DISCRACEFUL SPECTACLE. WHOSE FAULT [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 15 August 1920
TJiidei* -fehe Ususl* SOLDIER MENDIGANTS. A OISCRACEFUL SPECTACLE. - WHOSE FAULT? Has AuAralia honorably kept her pro mise to provide amply for her repatri ated soldiers, especially the disabled? That question cries out for a straight answer. When the war was on the few people who declaerd that after it was all over crippled soldiers would be seen selling matches in. the. streets _ were promptly spuashed for discouraging re-. cruiting. We havn't seen any selling matches in Perth, but there's more than one to be seen on equally low caste stunts. If repatriation lias done what it was claimed by the Hughes crowd that it ?'would do, these men are disgracing the ex-soldiers as a body, and theB.S.L. should be doing something to stop them. At least, it should withdraw their badges. If repatriation has not done what the Hughes mob claimed it would do, then Australia stands disgraced in the men we refer to, and the R.S.L. should be nmlring a hell of a lot more row than it's doing.

Lenin Replies to British Labour "MIRROR'S" EXCLUSIVE NEWS. A FIRST HAND DOCUMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 15 August 1920
Lenin Replies to British Labour 'MIRROR'S' EXCLUSIVE NEWS. A FIRST HAND DOCUMENT. From time to time both our dailies, not to mention the Sabbath Serpert, are choked to the neck with horrific tales about Bokhevic atrocities. These are lifted, generally without acknow ledgement, from the most venomously Tory and blood-curdling war-mongering journals in England. Australians are not informed that a vastly different picture is presented by English Liberal and Labor papers, and are left with the impression that there is but one side to the' question. 'The Mirror' is not furiously in love with, the Soviet system; but ye hold that every penny of British treasure spent in war against Russia over dif ferences in political opinions is robbed from the workers of the British em pire; that every British soldier who has fallen in the adventures against the Soviet has been foully murdered by his Government. Let Russia alone. We didn't worry when all Russians were slaves under an atrocious Czariet t...
INTERNAL CONDITIONS OF RUSSIA. (No. 1.) BLOCKADE RESPONSIBLE FOR WORST EVILS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 15 August 1920
INTERNAL CONDITIONS OF RUSSIA. (No. 1.) BLOCKADE RESPONSIBLE FOR WORST EVILS. 'We have been profoundly impress ed,' says tKe report,, 'by the effects of the policy of intervention and block ade upon the Russian people. This policy has been pursued by various foreign' Governments since 1918, and under various forms, direct and in direct, it is still being pursued to-day. It is at the root of the worst evils ? which are afflicting Russia at the pre sent time. While the stoppage of ex p.orts from Russia is injurious to the world outside, the stoppage of imports is disastrous to the interior economy of Russia herself. The problem of food exceeds all others in immediate im portance. We' are appalled by the conditions of virtual' famine under which the whole urban population — the manual and the intellectual workers alike — are living. ' \ MARVELLOUS ORGANISATION IN SPITE OF BLOCKADE. 'A particularly serious effect of the blockade policy has been the cutting .off of soap apd of medical su...
(No. 2.) A CANDID STATEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 15 August 1920
(No. a.) A CANDID STATEMENT. Lenin, in a rather frank letter ad dressed to British workers and brought to England by Mr. Ben Turner, the chairman of the Labour delegation, ''Shaw and Guest, members of your delegation, were obviously surprised and hurt by my statement that Eng land, notwithstanding our peace pro posals, notwithstanding the declara tions or her government, continues her intervention, is carrying on a war against us, helping Wrangel in the Crimea and the White Guards in Poland — and they asked me whether I have proofs to this effect, whether I can state how many trains with munitions were delivered by England to Poland, and so on. I replied that for the pur pose of getting access to the secret agreements of the British Government it is necessary to overthrow it by revo lutionary means, and to lay hold of all documents of its foreign policy, as, was done by us in 1917. Every educated person, every one genuinely interested in politics, knew even, before the revo lution t...
TROTTING IN THE EAST. "Mirror" Interviews Mr. W. A. Smiley. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 15 August 1920
TROTTING IN THE EAST. 'Mirror' Interviews Mr. W. A. Smiley. ? Mr. Walton A. Smily returned on Sunday last after a visit to the Eas tern States and New Zealand. Almost from the inception of trot ting in this State, Mr. Smily has been prominent in the control of the sport. He has' acted in official capacities and for some years has been a member of the executive of the association., It is natural that such»*an enthusiast who has studied the status of trotting in those parts of Australasia should be a iceen and candid critic. Talking to a Mirror man, Mr. Smily gave some interesting parti culars with regard to what he saw while away. He attended trotting meetings in Melbourne and Sydney. He was unfortunate while in New Zealand that there were not any fixtures. It was because of their, being no trot ting meetings at Christchurch that he did not go to the South Island. In the North Island he was very warmly received and entertained by both galloping and trotting officials. The chairman of...
Trotting [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 15 August 1920
Trotting Having at long last secured a motor capable of performing the work, the W.A. Trotting Association have commenced pumping silt on to the site of their new ground (along side the W.A.C.A. Ground, at pre sent used for trotting fixtures). It is expected that the silting will be completed in about four months time, when the necessarily lengthy task of laying tracks, building stands, accommodation sheds, and various other necessities and lux uries that go to make an up-to-date trotting arena, *will be put in hand. When finally completed, the W.A.T.A. claim that their ground will be the envy of the Common wealth. Nominations are out for the big events of Anniversary trotting fix tures on the Goldfields, and are as follows: — GOLDFIELDS TROTTING CUP. ' v August 25. 200 Sovs. 230 and Better.

Boxing THE STONE-KAY CLASH. THE AMERICAN PREVAILS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 15 August 1920
Boxing THE STONE-KAY CLASH. THE AMERICAN PREVAILS. — -r\ ? There was a big crowd at the Shaf tesbury Theatre on Tuesday night, so big that there was hardly stand ing room in any part of the build ing. Stone and Kay smiled as they acknowledged the greetings from the vaJst'multitude: both, however. wore a*grim expression like gladia tors waiting for death or glory and preferring glory. When Dick Thorpe, an Eastern States referee, announced the men to his Excellency the Guv., both gave a gruff though civil 'How-do,' and retired to their corners to pre pare. From the initial gong Stone show ed that he had learned his lesson in Sydney, that it was Useless to Box Kay, that the only way to win was to 'hop in and fight,' and he acted on it, and very soon had Kay looking troubled. Although the big fel low stopped many of Stone's at tempts to reach his body with his glove, yet the Yank got there time after time, livid patches on Kay's ribs telling their tale only too truly. It was some time b...

Tweaks and squeaks [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 15 August 1920
Tw«flhs and squeaks It was in front of the Dwellingup Hotel, Sid Ready met. the stranger who had just come down from Marri nup or Dandalup or somewhere. Sid. was dry. 'What a devil of a lot of places ending with 'up' about here,' said the stranger, 'and they tell me they .are aboriginal names meaning wa ter.' 1 know one 'up' that doesn't mean water,' said Sid., as he steered for the bar. 'What?' asked tie stranger, fol lowing up. 'Fill-em-up,' said Sid., and the barman did. Joseph and Isaac went to hear Billy Sunday1 preach, and after lie service, as they were going home, Joseph said: 'yelL Izaac, vat you tink of him?' 'I didn't like him,' said- Isaac. 'Too much hell! It was hell, hell, hell all the time. And I don't be lieve there is any hell, Joseph.' 'No hell?' asked Joseph in amaze ment. 'No,' answered the friend. 'Veil, then, Izaac,' said Joseph, 'if there is no hell, where is bizness gone?' She was an ardent suffragette, and was arguing with her father about the ballot for wom...
Three Queensland Traitors JEOPARDISE AUSTRALIAN SAFETY. TO SECURE SELFISH INTERESTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 15 August 1920
Three Queensland Traitors JEOPARDISE AUSTRALIAN SAFETY. TO SECURE~SELFXSH INTERESTS. The departing Governor-General Sir Ronald Munro Ferguson, in the course of his farewell address, made 'the following pertinent remark: 'Meanwhile the chief province of the Federal Government, when once the last spark of life is out of the expiring War Precautions Act, is national defence: It has to provide tnai invioiaDie secur ity behind which the institutions and industries of lie country can develop at their leisure; and it has to throw a protecting barriet round the empty spaces of Aus tralia till they can be filled by men of our own race.' It follows that the States owe it to Australia to second and complete that policy by filling the empty spaces, especially in the North of the Continent. Nothing can more quickly attract population to the North than the opening up of the natural wealth of the country. On the northern coast of Queens land is a little town called Bowen. It stands on a good harbo...
STATE TAXATION RETURNS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 15 August 1920
STATE TAXATION RETURNS. We are requested by the State Commissiflher of Taxation to notify taxpayers that State Land and In come Tax Returns for the year end ed the 30th June, 1920 (14th assess ment) will be due, as in past years on the 1st of September next, but owing to the Civil Service Strike Returns furnished by the 1st of Oc tober will be exempt from penalty. From a notice in our advertising columns, it will be observed that every person whose gross income for the 12 months ended the 30th of June, 1919, exceeded £100, must fur nish a State Income Tax Return.

The Gu illotine. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 15 August 1920
The Gu iilotirie. The Mirror can do without con tributed articles; but it isn't bigoted on the subject. Persons desirous of submitting matter for publication should note: (1) 'Copy' must be read before it can be printed; it must, therefore, be -readable. (2) It must be as brief as possible, and to the point, if the writer hopes for at to be read after printed (if printed at all). Half columns are preferable to full columns, and have just ten times the chance of seeing type. Twenty column articles have no chance. (3) Newspaper men must econo mise time^ — and space. Both are eternal, but life is short. There fore, articles that need to be cut and hacked about by the Editor have a poor show; those that need re-writing have no show. H) Paper is only about £100 a ton. Time an a newspaper office is ten times as valuable. Save the Editor's time by leaving space for corrections between lines. Pon't join 500 words on to a postcard. Use paper about half foolscap size. Write in ink, on one sid...

Pars — Pungent and Polite COMPULSORY ENROLMENT OF ELECTORS For the State Legislative Assembly. During the last Parliamentary Ses sion, an enactment was passed con taining provisions for Compulsory Enrolment on the Electoral Rolls for the State Legislative Assembly Districts. In view of the impend ing general elections, which cannot take place later than March next, it is important that the contents of that Act should be clearly under stood by the public. Generally speaking, an elector, who by a month's continuous residence in an electoral district becomes qualified for enrolment, is required by the Act under a penalty of £2, to fill in and sign a claim for enrolment, and lodge same with the Registrar far the district within 21 days of com pleting the month's residence above referred to. Likewise, if an elector, who is already duly enrolled, changes his place of living from one address to another within the same electoral district, it becomes his duty under a like penalty to fill in ...
