Cables. DR. MANNIX. Gives Lie to "Loyalists." [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 14 May 1921
Cables. OR. MANNIX. Gives Lie to 'Loyalists.' LONDON, May 13th.— Dr. Mannix sailed to-dav iii the Japanese steamer Kleist. He states that there is no foundation whatever for the state ment that he is travelling by a Jap anese steamer to avoid the BritisR flag. The sole reason is that he in tenas IO visn ja-ya-u, wueic nc »»»' stay for a week before resuming his vovage. He expects to arrive in Brisbane on August 5th, and will prob ably go overland to Melbourne, stay ing a few days in Sydney en route. He scouts the rumour that he is a candi date for the See of Dublin. He is not, he declares, posing as a niartyr for not being allowed to go to Ireland. He could have gone there without sur rendering any principle had he chosen to take the easy course. 'It will not be my fault,' he concluded, 'if Aus tralia does not learn the true state ot affairs in Ireland. England is trying hard to wed America, but Ireland for bids the banns.
A Human Fleet. [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 14 May 1921
A Hunan Fleet. — %* — Apropos of Mrs. Daisy Bates' in teresting column interview re na tive affairs, with the 'West,' it is well worth recalling a rather amusing story that went the rounds of the clubs some years ago. Mrs. Bates being a sincere and true friend of natives in air parts of the State, had a most picturesque col lection of photographs gathered by herself, of different tribes, and was on one occasion showing the excel lent series to some of the members of the local department that was supposed to 'protect' local abo rigises. Leaving the photographs out on the table and designating each crowd of unclothed binghis, (lubras and piccanines with their cor rect nomens, Mrs. Bates concluded her impromptu explanation with the statement that the pictures practically reviewed the tribes of the whole State. '?Yes, yes,' chipped in the late Billy Mills, who was at the time boss of the depart ment. ' Mrs. Bates, you are quite right*: those photos are a review of the State — a naval re...

A Vaunted Custom. [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 14 May 1921
A Vaulted cistern. 'W': Apropos of the recent Local Onion poll, John Foster Fraser, in his work 'The Amazing Argentine,' writes: 'It might be thought that in Mendoiza, where wine is the cheapest beverage pro curable except water, there would be drunkenness. Not at all. Per haps the case of the people is like that of the girls in confectionery shops: there are so many sweets about they never think of making themselves ill. Now and then there is a relapse. But a Mendozian 'drunk' is not fined and sent to pri son. Armed with a pail he has to give two or three days to getting water out of the rivulets which ruu down the sides of the main streets, and sprinkling the dusty road with it. This is work usually given to boys. So when you see a disgrunt led man engaged at it, you will be quite right in coming to the con elusion he has been imbibing, and the authorities have put him ou this job to disgrace him.' Can anyone picture a similar scene in Perth city streets! Faney a newly -elected an...

Pledges and Excuses [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 14 May 1921
Pltff es «m Excises 'M.': — Late last year the Basic Wage Commission made its report. It found that the great majority of the workers of Australia were grossly underpaid — that thedr aver age earnings fell far below what the Commission, after eighteen months of patient investigation, had found to be the wage necessary to support a normal family in decency aud frugal comfort. Mr. William Morris Hughes, Prime Minister of the Common wealth of Australia, had establish ed this Commission because, he de clared, industrial peace could be/had only by payment of a certain, price. 'That price was — said Hughes — Jus- tice to Labour. When the report of the Commis sion showed that that fine phrase, Justice to Labour, meant, in plain figures, a wage of £5 16s. per week, Hughes and the friends of Hughes began to shy at paying it. It would make Australia bankrupt! Nevertheless, in. response to sev ere pressure applied by the direct employees of the Commonwealth Government, Hughes made a state ment...
THE MIRROR Perth, May 14, 1921. Justice A Contrast [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 14 May 1921
Perth, May 14, 1921. Justice— A cratrest ? n ? Two youths in this city, very re cently, were called before the Bar of Justice to answer for their wrong doing. The onc^ a weedy looking lad a little over sixteen; the other two years older, but still a boy. Both had been raised in different atmospheres. One was the product of the bush, the other was City bred. One had obviously not the advant age of a breeding that would fit him for a 'wholesome life even in the humbler spheres of his fellows; the other had. Both had been jolted off the narrow path of duty, and had foolishly gone, as crowds had gone before them, other ways, and both by an evil turning came into the clutehes of that terrible thing — the Law. The one has been cast out from Soeiety by Stern Justice and condemned to a living death for ten years. He will grow into man hood amongst criminals, and be indoctrinated by them with the dogmas of crime. The other better classed jbetter-frieuded, goes back to his kindred and to Soci...
