Bullseyes [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 7 April 1921
Bullseyes (BY 'MARKSMAN). When rats are-driven from tin*! open they invariably take -to the sew- j crs. In these congenial haunts they becomc quite inventive. *. * * . Boycotting the soldiers' sports is ftheir latest stunt. . The sewer is . just a congenial place for such fab rication. | j . * * * When-it * comes to such malicious ¡.lying m order lo curry favor t>r se- cure some patronage,"' things must, be in a bad way. ~ m »j * * 1 The "Carters' Section" of the A.W.U. is coming in for á\ little slime. They have created a monop- oly, eh ? and want a "large holding paddock." What a miserable side- track to toddle on for the sake of putting a spoke in on the hated unionists ! i » * * * J It has been seriously urged that j the manufacture of hop beer should j be stopped in Darwin. Of course it is to save a few boozer blacks that this is proposed. Well, if enough public' money is not wasted in man- aging them now, why not waste a j little more, and manage them effect- ively?

Amongst the Ladies. (By "Little Polly:") [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 7 April 1921
Amongst the Ladies. (By~"Lißle Polly:") I am loath to believe that in less, than a generation the contamination of the age and the incitements of^ pragmatical, inconocastic and pan- dering social quacks have revolu- tionised the female world and found a ready acquiescence in the erstwhile noble, modest and domestic mind of woman. I can trace an evolution of dignity and of social independence irom natural and satisfactory causes, but who is so blind as not to trace also a counterbalancing demoralisa- tion proportionate to the distance which is separating the loved depen- dent from the unloved independent ? Many persons have observed with chargrin the, readiness with which politicians and knavish political as pirants remodel professions, or as is commonly caid, trim their sails to catch the. rising breeze. Political prostitutions are as general as the evils politicians profess to desire to remedy and the hitherto unapproach ed and unapproachable^ ground, of fogaje d^'tjy honor and Tov...

'Divide et Tmpffira.^ The motto of JJahorJist^Jrom llie first been Un?tv-the moral deifocible from the "Bundle of sticks." *It.1ß_ because Unity is strength and thatx the producers * of the world are be- coming aware of "this fact? tnat the policy of the knave and the exploiter -no1-to, speak of their miserable . tools-has been, is, and will ever be the tactic* embodied in the old Rom- an phrase, " Divide and rule." Con- stituted as society is, and looking upon nations in the same light as the whoie world, it has never been ditncult to find a shibboleth or a pre- text on which to divide the people whenever an ulterior purpose had to ue served. The chief butts of slander and obloquy are naturally the more enlightened and determined leadjers of Democracy» the ultimate object, of course, being the division - of the people, the reducing of the power which is begotten of unity by mak- ing it disunited.

THE LABOR CAUSE, AND ITS NECESSITY. No. II. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 7 April 1921
^----^i-MM-M«»... THE LABOR CAUSE, AND ITS NECESSITY. ;No'.. II. In our first article we understated the amount of wealth owned by the 454 per cent of the population ; that is, the extent of the monopoly was not shown in full nakedness. How- ever, it must appear seiious enough. We purpose showing in this article the tendency to further monopoly, > and, of course, to corresponding de- pendence and eventual pauperism. The figures will necessarily astound many. Taking the wages in 1912 we. find that they increased during the following six years by 26 per cent. That on first appearances would look satisfactory and give some pretext j for the bitter slanders heaped on Labor by its critics. It is when we j realise that in the same six years the ' cost of living increased by 56 per cent, that we come to a clear under- standing of the actual position. Now, per contra, the total A stralian man- ufactured output of the former year was £133,022,000, less materials used,-power, ,, &c...

WHY THE PROSECUTIONS WERE STILLBORN. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 9 April 1921
WHY THE PROSECUTIONS WERE STILLBORN. The public have- been wondering for some time why the Government 'went to' sleep, on.^ its loud and, oft repeated, threats to prosecute alleged, .delinquents Jn .connection- : with thc' Incoine -Tax claims. They will be in- terested in léarning that the cause of the harmless thunderbolts not developing is the simple ' fact' "that the Government's jackeroos were in something of the same position as its judicial appointees, like Mahomet's coffin, somewhere other. > than -térra firma. As a matter of fact all the blow and blither was based on a con scu^sness that no prosecution could, be sustained, for the simple reason that -the Government's high cockatara .uni . could not prove his'appointment, and bluff was substituted for thc time being. The appointment . of Mr. Geraghty as deputy taxrgathercr was gazetted in Melbourne only on March 3rd ("Gazette " No. 19) and that interesting " Journal " could ; not be produced;" It will probably be herc next...
