A Veracious Pair!! More about the Stirling St. Graft. Further Question in Parliament. ? n ? \ Further pressed by Mr. Lutey, the Minister for Railways made the fol lowing statement in the House last Thursday: — 'The official who sold the Hoe rotary machine to the 'Sunday Times' without reference to any member of the Ministry was the Commissioner of Railways. .He had not been either reprimanded or com mended by the Ministry for his ac tion. The amount of £500 had teen paid. The Government purchased the machine for £5,800, because the company claimed that the machine was included in the resumption and on the advice of the SolicitorGen eral, who stated that a claim for fixed machines could be sustained, the Government of the, day admitt ed the claim. The 'Sunday Times' Company received £33,356 for the whole of the land,' buildings, and ma chinery. The Government Printer had been asked to report on tie machine.

THE SOLUTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 5 September 1920
THE SOLUTION. A woman missionary in China was taking tea with the eight wives of a mandarin. The Chinese ladies ex pressed great wonder at the lady's clothing, but her feet especially as tonished them. 'Why,' said one, you can walk and run as well as a man.' 'Of course,' replied the mis sionary. 'Can you ride a horse and swim, too?' 'Certainly.' 'Then you are as strong as a man?' 'I am.' 'And you wouldn't let a man beat you, even if he was your hus band, would you?' 'Indeed, I should not,' responded the mission ary emphatically. 'No Englishwo. man ever allows such things.' The mandarines wives exchanged know ing looks with each other, and then the eldest said softly, 'That ex plains why the foreign devil has never more than one wife. He is afraid!'

Some Parliamentary Reminiscences [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 5 September 1920
Some Parliament ary Reminiscences (Not Recorded by James Gardiner). Endless reams of reminiscences, contributed by one, James Gardiner, late Member of the recently defunct Lefroy Ministry, appeared in the 'West Australian' of a recent date, but there have been many touching little incidents, which our old friend will endeavour to chronicle Jimmy's ommissions. , Well do we mind how Sir Dunno Lefroy, then Premier, '^emulated the immortal Horatius. We cannot easily forget his heroic stand at Premyersoffiz, when a water wag on and old women deputation waited upon him, with a view of shutting up all the pubs and mak ing all the beeer sparrers go to Church. With one hand grasping his trusty Shapcott, and on the door handle, the heroic Sir Dunno benignly informed the wow sers that he liked his glass of wine. He got* so much whine from the disciples of Mather that now they attribute his retirement from office either to Henry's wine or to their whine. Much water has flowed under the bridge s...
A Diabolical MacHine Excruciating Tortures [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 5 September 1920
A Diabolical Machine Excruciating Tortures Some of the truths made public last week about conditions existing in Perth clothing factories excited such interest that we think it oppor tune to expose another abomination extant in this quarter. Certain establishments use a but ton-hole machine, which has the distinction of being able to run for twenty stitches without stopping. Indeed it cannot be stopped until the action is finished. If a girl, hard pressed by time to make her money, gets her finger caught by the needle it does not require a very keen mentality to imagine what would be her lot. If her fin ger is caught on the second stitch it must be punctured 18 times. This sort of thing occurs not infrequently and the result of this diabolic profit screwing contrivance is frequently reflected in the senseless form of a young woman — a potential mother — laid out on the landing to recover as best she may. Any action the girls teke to get rid of this devil-machine*would, un. der the c...

NO CONCERN OF HIS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 5 September 1920
NO CONCERN OF HIS. The doctor had just concluded his daily examination and the gouty old gentleman felt jnone too pleased. 'Well,' he asked, in the manner of one who demands an ultimatum 'How do you find me to-day, eh? Better or worse?' 'Oh, better much better,' said the medico, and rubbed his hands. '.You're improving rapidly. The only thing that's really wrong now is the fact that your legs still re main swollen. But that doesn't worry me in the least.' The irascible old invalid drew in a quick, sharp breath. 'No, of course, it doesn't,' he blurted out. 'And if your legs were swollen it wouldn't worry me.'
THE CHILDISH OBSTINACY OF THE MINISTER FOB WORKS The Member for Fremantle Hits Out [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 5 September 1920
THE CHILDISH OBSTINACY OF THE MINISTER FOB WORKS. The Member for Fremantle Bits Out. In castigating the petty cash Gov ernment in t heAddress-in-Reply, Mr. W. L. Jones, M.L.A., dealt caustically with the obstinacy and stupidity of that stiff-necked gentleman who is present Minister for Works. The Government has refused to give increases to the shipwrights, and consequently they had to cease work, although in the meantime pri vate employers were able to pay vthe necessary increases to £1 a day. The Federal authorities are anxious to pay the requisite wages at the Naval Base, but again the State Government's refusal blocks them, and even the foolish Minister himself was agreeable to paying it to\the men through a contractor, to whom, in addition, he would hiave to. pay 3/- commission, and 25/- a day lot supervision. The shipwrights re fused to allow the taxpayers to be thus robbed by the shiftlessness of a pig-headed Minister, and consequent ly the repairing of ships was held up. At t...
The Sunday Mirror PERTH. SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 5th., 1920 SHORTER HOURS [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 5 September 1920
PERTH. SUNDAY. SEPTEMBER 6tll.. 1920 SHORTER HOURS Australian Labour— indeed, we might say Labour the world over is well launched upon a campaign for the reduction of working hours. The 44-hour week, 40-hour week, and even^36-hour week have their advo cates; indeed, it would be hard to .find a representative- Labour man in Australia to-day who will stand for a less concession than that of 44 hours. Reform in the direction of reducing ,the hours of labour lias two great - advantages in its favour. In the first place, it is a real advan tage to the worker, not an illusory gain, as wage increases generally are. Ere the higher wage is paid, the cost of living, as a rule, has advanced to an extent snfficient at least to nullify the apparent gain. But no in crease in living costs can negative the positive gain in leisure time in volved in a reduction of hours to, say 44 per week. Now, it is useless for anyone to contend that the productive machi nery is so well organised that none will be...
RAILWAYS SWEAT RETURNED SOLDIERS. The Battler System. 16 Hours for 15/-. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 5 September 1920
RAILWAYS SWEAT RETURNED SOLDIERS. The Battler System. 16 Hours for 15/-. There is an organisation in exife. tenoe — or suspended animation — that sails under the name of tba Re turned Soldiers and Sailors' Imperial League of Australia. It is chiefly officered by Brass Hats, whose ideal ; it is to cut out the T-abour move ment aVd Trades Unions so far as returned men are concerned. 'If only they stick to the R.S.A. the returned soldiers will have no need of unions.' Well, we commend the condition of affairs at the West Perth Goods Sheds to their consider ation. . , At these sheds one\pf the most vic ious systems known to Bossdoin Uji limited is in operation — the 'battler system.' It used to operate on most tramway services , but has now been abolished by the unions. Of course, the Shunters' Expulsion incident, since it isn't remarkable that the Railway Unions haven't scotched the abomination in the railway service. The sheds are run by a mixed staff of permanents and casuals. The la...

SMASHING THE CROCKERY. A SHAMEFUL WASTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 5 September 1920
SMASHING THE CROCKERY. A SHAMEFUL WASTE. When Commissioner Pope's pnze acrobatic car was being fitted up for the accommodation of Teddy Next, all sorts of care was taken to pro vide it with suitable crockery and utensils. It is even related that a 'vessel fashioned unto dishonour was included, but that, unfortunate ly, one of sufficiently artistic design ' was not readily available, and m consequence a plain white one was purchased, and the services of an ar tist called in to paint a bunch of roses on it. The job was donte very well we are informed. When, however, Teddy Next flit ted for SA., the question of the dis posal of the various utensils cropped up. Evidently some genius of the Railway Department opined that crockery once used by his Royal Highness Edward Christian George Andrew Patrick David should never, never, never be used by men made of common clay in days to come. Accordingly the order went fortn that the crockery must be reduced to particles of the size ^usually de sc...
