THE UNSEEN HAND INFLUENCE IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA REMARKABLE GERMAN VOTING. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 18 August 1917
THE UNSEEN HAND INFLUENCE IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA REMARKABLE GERMAN VOTING. Definite traces of the 'unseen hand*' of Germany are obtained by an analysis of the electoral results in South Australia. Some figures were given in a recent issue of The Mirror. We are now able to give a more detailed analysis of the voting. The most notorious German district in South Australia is the division of Angas. It was strictly conservative for many years. A Labor candidate was anathema to the people. No doubt he would have been a 'Schwein- Hund' to them. That sentiment was strong at the elections in September, 1914, when Sen. Shannon, a Liberal, polled 22,745 votes, and Mr. C. E. Vardon, also a Liberal, got 14,455, while Sen. Newland (Labor) received only 9548. Angaston, one of the biggest subdivi sions, polled about 2300 to 600 against Labor, and most of the other essentially German places showed similar proportions. A change came over the Teutonic districts on October 28^ 1916, when the question of se...
UNION TYRANNY THE GOVERNMENT STANDPOINT [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 18 August 1917
UNION TYRANNY , , A , ,, - THE GOVERNMENT STAND POINT Whilst the men contend that the action of the Government tends to involve them in op pressive and harassing labor conditions, the Government takes the stand that the attitude of tlu Unions and Strike Committee means that the community is placed under the heel of a tyrannical body, which arrogates to itself the functions of the Government, asserts the right to say v/hat public utilities shall be possessed by the people, ana now mey snail ue manaijcu, and dominates the members of the Unions what ever their private desires and views may be. This, in the opinion of the Government, con- t siitutcs a tyranny of vhe Unions jib great as ;my tyrannical powcra of ths mosF retrograde employers. No uelf-respeclins Government or official would for one moment tolerate such a slate of things as exists at the present moment in Sydney, when the supply of foodstuffs is re htricted, means of travel are seriously interfered with, and all the ameniti...
ENEMY SUBJECTS GOVERNMENT ADMISSIONS [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 18 August 1917
ENEMY SUBJECTS ? A ? GOVERNMENT ADMISSIONS r'Last week the Minister for Defence, in reply to Senator Pratten, stated that 67 internees had escaped from the various internment camps in Australia, and only 38 of these had been re captured. The previous week Senator Pearcej in giving the figures for Holds worthy Camp, stated that 15 had successfully* evaded recapture. Senator Pearce informed Senator Pratten that alien enemy subjects on parole were allowed to carry on their ordinary business, unless there were special reasons for their prohibition and .re sliiction. In our opinion, no enemy subjects should be permitted to be on parole; all should be in terned. No enemy subjects should be allowed to carry on their ordinary business in competi tion with Australians, and the sooner the Gov ernment recognises that this is the deliberate view of the majority of the Australian people, the better. '~ . Again this week Senator Pearce stated that v he saw no reason for introducing special mea su...
STRIKE AGAINST TYRANNY MEN'S POINT OF VIEW [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 18 August 1917
STRIKE AGAINST TYRANNY I ' MEN'S POINT OF VIEW One of the interesting aspects of the present Btrlke Id that, fundamentally, both sides make the some complaint ; they both accuse the other of what amounts to tyranny. The men oreue that they are not fizhtinz : ' merely the card system, but a much wider set ?' ' of circumstances. They contend that since its 1 advent into power the National Government has adopted a hostile policy towards the 1 Unions, and that it means to deprive them of ' ' all power, influence, and rights in the commu nity, From this point of view the Government ' becomes a body of tyrants, using its power and if- prostituting the laws of the country to its own [ l'- ? ends and to serve the interests of one particu £ ' lar class. The Unionists argue that the Govern -v ment wan returned to power largely by the , , ' votes of the employing class, whose interest ?j'r' conflicts with those of the workers, and that ~* sooner or later a struggle, independent of any - one Un...

A NEW GAME. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 18 August 1917
A. NEW GAME. Here is something you might like I' try. Tills game, is best played out of . doors, nnil ix for any - number of players. Sides are chosen, and the players sit in two rows, facing each other. A player on one side then begins the game by throwing a ball to one of the opposite side, at the same time crying out cither Earth, Air, Tire or Water. If Air is called the player in whose lap the ball lias fallen must at once name a bird, or if Water is' called he must name a fish, and if Earth an animal. Should the word Fire be called no notice at all is. taken. If. the player remembers to do this, and he catches the .ball, it is now Mb turn to throw it to Bomoone else -on his opposing side, calling out one of the four words. If a player fuils to answer, or if he answers, wrongly or misses the ball, he is , compelled to drop out ofr the game. ... _ . i- The game continues' until all of one side have had to drop out, and, of couree, the other side are the victors.
