William Morris Hughes [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 8 May 1921
Wiilicm MMTis Hifles 'S.': The^ for-some time dis turbing question in Federal ?circles: Who will go to London and represent the Common wealth at the coming Imperial ?Conference? was set at rest by the Federal Parliament very recently. and on luesday last a section ot the citizens of this city, not a very large one, nor a very representative ?one, heard the Man who has suc ceeded' in carrying by assault what ever opposition there anight have 'been amongst his party to his se lection. Intriguing there has been in the Nationalist political camp to defeat the never-concealed wish of the Prime Minister to go to London as Australia's .representative at the Imperial Conference, but with' a ?frontal attack upon his opponents, ?made with a very clever exhibition of political bluffing, he compelled them to a humiliating surrender. 'Notwithstanding all / the political Tien-pecking from within the party 'he leads, William Morris Hughes is the man who for Good* or Evil, goes to London' as Austra...
A New Bee PUZZLES SCIENTISTS. AN EXPLANATION. [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 8 May 1921
A New lee PUZZLES SCIENTISTS, AN EXPLANATION. ' 'B.B.*'— The 'Daily News' got very excited the ether night* ever the appearance of a 'new kind of bee— in England. If a bronto saurus were discovered' in St. Geor ge's Terrace that, as a mere Austra lian event, would be deemed' to be of little or no interest to that paper's readers. This novel species of hymenopt informs us — '1£ in' from top to tip of its outstretched wings. It is very black, and bores through wood. Its appearance in England is a mystery, as its regular home is in Southern Italy, although it is met with as far north as Bonn, in Germany. To my -mind the explanation is ?quite simple. Judging from its isize, its blackness, its penchant for anaking a bore of itself, and its ge neral objectionableness, I opine that it must have been picked up by Mr. Lloyd George in the course of his wanderings, and brought back with him in his bonnet.
Problems Probed [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 8 May 1921
Problems Protect —n— M.: If a bride is stately as well as tall and plump, let her wear a me daeval frock of white brocade. A plump girl looks well, too, in white charmeuse, made on careful lines. She should wear a voluminous tulle veil that envelops her whole figure. But this is only if she is too plump ! ? «j P.: It is quite correct to wear an opera cloak at the theatre, but it is not incorrect to wear a fur coat. The latter, in the chilly season, is sensible even if not so smart as an opera cloak. There is no rule nowa days. People please themselves.
Who Burned the union jack? [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 8 May 1921
wbo ifumei the iUHHMI Jttltt 7 — u — 'M.' — A Union Jack was burned on the Sydney Domain last Sunday. A number of people are very an gry, and are calling out for the blood of the man who burned it. The man who burned it passed through Perth last Tuesday. He was not mobbed; he was not even hoot ed; on the contrary, he was ap plauded by the very people that pretend to be angry at the incident. That man was William Moms Hughes. William Morris Hughes has suc ceeded in nothing so well as he has succeeded in dividing Australia in*** hostile and hating camps. Every larva of hate Hughes has carefully nourished and planted in the heart of Australia. .Racial hate, sectarian hate, cl?ss hate, political hate — these are the familiar spints of William Morris Hughes. Those who hate as Hughes hales, Hughes calls loyal; to them Hughes has arrogated a flag that used to belong to the Nation, a song that used) .to be the National Anthem, u. diadem that used to circle the brows of a 'Crowned Republic.'...

War-Lord Pearce Proposes Death Penalty for Conscript Boys THE ARMY ACT TO SUPERSEDE THE DEFENCE ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 8 May 1921
Wtr-iwd Pearce Proposes oeaii pcnait|f«r ewxript mis THE ARMY ACT TO SUPER SEDE THE DEFENCE ACT. 'H.': Minister-for-Defence Pearce in the Senate ten days ago introduc ed an innocent-looking' Bill. This Bill provided for an amend ment of the Defence Act and the substituting therefor of an Embodi ment of the British Army Act. Pearce explained that as the Aus tralian Troops had to work under the Army Act in war time it was desirable that our trainees should familiarise themselves with it in Peace time.' The penalty for disobedience un der the Army Act is Death or Penal Servitude. Do you get that? The penalty under the Defence Act is simply discharge. Fathers and mothers do you real ise what this means? 350,000 Auss!es didn't go away to fight for this brand of 'Freedom.' But, yi Mi ask, Why the necessity for the Army Act?

"Natural Causes" A HALL'S CREEK VERDICT. [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 8 May 1921
'Natural causer A HALL'S CREEK VERDICT. 'M.' — The other day a man at Hall's Creek placed a loaded revol ver to his temples and pulled tne trigger. Not unnaturally, death ensued, and in due course a Hall's Creek jury sat on the case and found a verdict of 'death from na tural causes.' Our contemporaries all seem aghast at this specimen of Hall's Creek jurisprudence. But why? We understand the processes that go.on inside a loaded revolver, aftei hte trigger is pulled, to be perfectly natural.- We. furthermore, regaixl as quite natural the subsequent ex pulsion of the pellet, and its desr tractive effect upon cerebral tissae. Where do the unnatural causes come in? Presumably, our friends will reply that it is unnatural for a man to desire to cause destruction to his cerebral tissues. But. then, they forget that the unfortunate 'un dent occurred^ at Hall's Creek. It's a funny old world.

Not a smile, either, any where. All are as quiet as sentries at a two-up school. \ Sir Lath opens with his character istic lime-lighting and cordial greet ing. Sunny Jim followed happily.

Milk—eau [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 8 May 1921
Milft-eau — o — 'Olo.' — The scarcity of water ne ver seems to worry the milkman. During the past week two cases came before the City Court, in which milk-vendors were charged with selling water more or less adulterated with a fluid suspected' of being milk. Both were fined sums which, for all practical pur poses, may be regarded as license fees to go and do it some more. And customers are so used to reading that their own and everybody else's milk-eau (diggers, please translate) has been fined £2 or £5 for discolour ing the tap-juice that they take no notice whatever. It is humbug to imagine that this sort of thing can't be stopped. It can; and a health department, backed up properly by the Govern ment, can stop it But in fairness to the 'milk1' retailer, proper steps should be taken to see that the stuff dairymen send in to their consignees is milk, nothing more, and- nothing less. So long as the milkman can plead that the ghostly fluid is just what he got from the wholesaler, the...
THE MIRROR Perth, Sunday, May 7, 1921. £. S. [?]. [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 8 May 1921
Path, Sunday, May 7, 1921. £.$.!. The Federal finances 'are drop ping down to the level of what is colloquially termed 'rotten.' On March 31st. last, Sir Joe Cook was £2,758,912 shy in his balancing. But Sir Joe is not uneasy. With that peculiar unctuousness which he can command when necessary, he re minds us that we need not be un easy, as from the previous financial vear the Treasury had in hand £5,724,506. So on All Pools' Day our Federal Treasurer had still a shot in the locker and was smihrg. All was serene on deck, and the Commonwealth barque could ride the waves,' for the present at all events, without fear of running short of fuel. There -was still in the Treasury till, or somewhere just as handy, £2,965,894, on which raids could be made at intevals. If in nine months Sir Joe Cook has over run the constable to such an ex tent, what will be the condition of our uneconomic administrations fin ance at the end of the current'1 fin ancial term? If our Federal ad ministrators cann...
