GAS [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 21 May 1921

GAS 'M': Some years ago the man agement of the Perth Gas Supply was taken over by the City Council. This was in the days when T.G.A: was Mayor — long before Lathlain had insured the Economic with the company run by Prowse. The Coun ci! had to pay through the nose to wrest the business out of the hands of the private sharks, but at the prices charged (which were not re duced) no difficulty should have been encountered in making the enterprise pay readily both for cur rent services and necessary expan sion. But 'expansion has never occupied the visions of our councillors. To slouch along ever in the same old rut, with narrow streets, neglected lanes, and unenfereed by-laws, is the limit of its capabilities. In al most every respect their slovenli ness has left the city a generation behind the Eastern capitals. Until the Police Department took over the administration of the Traffic Act, there was no order in the streets. Eubbish is thrown about anywhere, and even if citizens de sire to...

Lathlain's Mascot [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 21 May 1921

LfllhlfliH's Nflsctt —vr— 'H': Sir Limelight Lathlaiu made the splash of his iife last Thursday liight. Other men have been knighted; still others have been noble enough to deeline the tawdry decoration; but it is doubt ful if ever a citizen stage-managed the business in more arrantly cheap jack fashion. A prize-presentation at a dainc school wasn't in it. Sir Lanelight reminded me for all the world of little Johnny, with his face brought lo a high, ruddy polish by the use of warm water, verys yellow soap, and plenty of elbow-grease, strut ting up to take the prize in general proficiency — a weird subject in vented to finable the giving of ])-.iz(-s fo rnrly-Iiaiicd hoys who are proficient in nothing by mediocrity. Lathlaiu made a great commotion. He fussed and fumed, he pranced and posed; he strutted jtnd stut tered; he pouted like a jggaon and preened his plumes like & peacock: lie splattered like boiling porridge. He declared himself proof t»i be the 'chief citizen of me ...

«I^^^IEV*-*9^^UXk5 HIS Mrs. De Morton Meredith was feel ing particularly happy that morn ing. The country was looking at its very best; the sun was shining; she had won fifty pounds the pre vious evening at bridge, and Tier daughter's engagement to Sir Wil liam Pilson, the enormously wealthv proprietor of Pilson's Pills, had been announced recently in the 'Times.' She climbed 4he stile and proceeded along the footpath to,the golf ijnks. She felt like -whistlja^ Mendelssohn's Spring Song. Had she not remem bered just in time that she was Mrs. de Morton Meredith, she would have done so. Money, she thought to her self ,made all things possible, even Sir William Pilson. Of course there were drawbacks. Why on earth had he advertised he disgusting things under his own name?

No Wonder France Laughs! MIGHT OF BRITAIN SHATTERED BY ELEVEN LITTLE AUSTRALIANS. [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 21 May 1921

No Wonder France KlflS! MIGII OF BRITAIN SHATTEtti BT ELEVEN LITTLE AUSTRA LIANS. 'M':— The other day the Parisian Press had a good laugh at John Bull, to whose industrial and internation al troubles is added his uncertainty as to the outcome of the Test mat ches. It could be thought at first that the Frenchmen were unduly bait ing our friend. But a glimpse of last Thursday's headlines in that pompous organ of pommyistn, the 'West Australian,' has convinced us that brother Gaul is far from be ing severe. Here they are: — Army, Navy and Air Force Defeated. Not an insurrection- -Not a Sinn Fein plot. Not a social revolution. Just a cricket match. Poor John! on Tuesday and Thursday next. a hundred horso and foot, accompanied by big guns, will nre salutes at King's l'ark and the Esplanade. The cost will be four figures at least for thn foolery, and plenty or Diirgpr,; will be carted away to the public hospital with a re ?lose of shPll-shork.

Taxation Pens and Inmates [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 21 May 1921

TixatiM i»ns §m imnafes 'Wallaby': Uppah 'Ouse Presi dent Walter Kingsmill, in giving evidence before the Royal Commis sion on Taxation, advocated what he described as a differential grad uated income tax. In short, a clas sification of all sorts of industries and incomes. Walter proposes to yard 'em up in four different pens for the taxation shears. 'Why?' asks the Uppah 'Ouse chieftain, 'should the man engaged in a use ful and necessary primary industry, such as agriculture, be compelled to fork out in the same ratio as the ah— let me say— bookmaker?' Wal ter might have gone a little further and added — or professional politi cian. Later, hewever, he admitted that a certain amount of specula tion was also permissable as to the. proper classification of members of Parliament. Here is the order in which he would round the taxable Paschal Lambs for the Passover: No- 1: All those who by personal exertion were cnt-aged in the prim ary industries.

THE MIRROR MAY 21, 1921. Damn the Politicians! [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 21 May 1921

MIror MAY 21, 1921. Damn the Polificiais ! That seems to be the cry of the hour — the cry coming up from the crowd who cannot get all they want from the Treasury, for clearly it is ?the stuff in Sir Joseph's money-box they are after. It is also the cry of the* duped, discontented people who went nap on the Prime. Minister's el ection promises. Sir Joseph, deal man, in the mirror sadly contem plates his scalp being denuded of the little that remains of what it had when the domestic treasury of his miners' hut was guarded with more caution and judgment than the Fe deral finances have been in recent years. When he surveys his balance sheet (there is a doubt that he 'will go to London) at the end of the fin ancial year, there will be ample evi dence unfolded in its figures of pro digal expenditure and lavish gene rosity at the expense of those whom the old Tory Press was wont to call 'the great unwashed,' and a big lurid light will be thrown on the holy ardour of the violently agitated ...

Mr. Dan Irving, Socialist M.P: for Burnley, told the Committee that out of his £400 he pays £105 for a third-class railway pass.
