CANDID CRLTICISMS. A Decoy Duck. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 23 March 1921
CANDID GRpíCÍSMS. A Decoy Duck.

Pertinent and Opportune. Copy of letter, by Mr. H. Nelson, to the Press Agency, and refused publication : 1 " There is in Darwin a little junta , of anonymous reactionaries who were very scandalised at the attitude of the Acting Administrator .towards Industrialists." They fondly hoped that he was coming up to punish in- dustrialists for alleged misdemean- ours which occurred before his ar- rival or at least to treat them as outlaws who deserved punishment . " Staniforth Smith with -fourteen years of administrative experience adopted the correct constitutional at- titude. He^ recognised he had noth- ing to do with occurrences of thc past as a Royal Commission appoin; ted. by the^Gjoyernor-General arrived in'the same vessel as. he did.
