It is pointed out that hr the' present dis- interested mood of consumers both in the- United Kingdom and America, there? is certainly nothing to encour- age dealers in the .way of making provision for future needs. If trade and financial prospects begin to menc the market is not unlikely to become very sensitive. TIN-This market was most- e - ratic throughout December the ex- treme prices touched for cash being £238 on the 9th and £198 on the 1 23rd.

WHY IRELAND IS POOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 5 April 1921
WHY IRELAND IS POOR; A correspondent sends us the fol- lowing : , Why is Ireland poor ? Many tell us it is because the Irish are lazy, others say it is because Vthey are savages, and . others * again because they have no pluck and' grit. B¿t Morley and -Bright have told us that most pf -the hard work done in the world is done by Irishmen; and Fr. Hall, SJ., I ah Englishman, who had travelled in many lands, says that the most refined people he eyer nïct and the men who; best deserved the name of gentlemen were the Irish peasants, and if the Irish are cowards it is strange that thc Duke of \yel- lingtondeclared that he could, not hkve/won his wars but for his Iriàh soldiers^ and if they are without^pluck arid grit why was England so anxious to get them to fight-her battles durr ing the late war. Why,, then, is Ire- land so poor. I will not go; back over thè horrors pf the penal times, but will Vecall/a few facts of the last century, and when you consider them you wiH/not ask-, why an ...

THE LABOR CAUSE, AND ITS NECESSITY, NO. I. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 5 April 1921
'THE LABOR CAUSE, AND ITS M . ? NECESSITY, rfy NO. I. j. As we write .over, a .million souls in England are deprived of the sus- tenance of life through the strike which has just been ordered ; and it is the greatest upheaval^ we are told, yet experienced there. On first ap- pearances it may.be considered mad- ness to risk starvation on the part of this million of men,1 women and chil- dren, but the point must be investi- gated fully and fairly before a just judgment can -be formed. The posi- tion is this : Thät strikes have fol lowed in rapid succession in Eng- land fdr some years, more especially since the termination of the war; they have arisen because of the greed of those who control the country's resources and «he inability of. the workers to live with moderate com- fort on the wages given ; that in the endeavour to dominate foreign mar- kets with a certainty of big' profits the monopolists of England adopt the policy of taking thc difference between high-price profits and cu...

Imperialism Opposed. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 5 April 1921
Imperialism^ Opposed. ; Perhaps it is. welf that the Labor movement acts exasperating slow be . times, ¿and drives occasional devotees into the . arms of revolutionary tac- tics. .We are sure, -however, that when it does act it does not recede from its position ; moreover^ by thc length of time it takes to arrive at a decision and the " Constitutional " finessowhich it brings to bear, it naturally wins confidence in its sin- cerity and respect for its announced purpose. ^ When, therefore, thc Labor party'i decides that it will op- pose all forms of- Imperial Federa- tion-we know that that decision is the result of well-weighed judgment) . and..that it is. thc last word, so to Fpeak. .Many pronouncements. have; been expected 'rom the Australian Labor Party, which it has so far shirked, or given only in halting, rail-sitting accents.; To some extent the party practices the habit of run- ning with the hare and hunting with the hounds, as in the case of its tardy and ins fficient espous...
