(To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 12 April 1921
(To thc Editor.) -ii-As Ui¿ Minister for Home vnd Territories is due to arrive herc iiortly taking notes re matters Ter- ritorial, it is to be hoped he will make a special inquiry into the working of nationalisation of State pubs. Min- ster Poynton need have no scruples ibout an impartial inquiry as thc .cading lights of Unionism in Austra- lia arc beginning to turn nationalisa- tion down with a tliud. It will come is a shock to many ticket-holders no Joubt to know that nationalisation's attempt for a place in the sun has bailed because of no moral support jy the supplicants' of Labor. Some- where about four years ago Mr. Nel- son told ticket holders of that time at Vesteys that he had plenty of jacking, but there was no moral fibre m it, a glaring fact that has proved correct iii regard to the Liquor- traf- ic. Ever since the pubs of Darwin aave been nationalised these aristo- crats of Labor have broken every principle, beat the tin \on Nelson ¿rom first to last, till the làst stat...

MINISTERIAL TILT AT LABOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 12 April 1921
MINISTERIAL TILT AT LABOR. Replying to a deputation of the' Housewife?' Association, Melbourne, who protested against the subjects of ex-enémy countries arid Asiatics paying avower price for Australian wheat than Australians themselves, . the Victorian Minister for Agricul- ture, predicted in the second half of this year we would witness a sharp decliné in the values. The Govern- ment would haye to be in a position to face it. The wheat board would haye a world-wide competition in: the price of flour whether producers lik- ed it bf ;ùpt.f>- -They were going to see .lower; pricès-; for - commodities.' The fact that:\-tnérë'%àsv^'only:'thrèe-" ^shillings^ worth bf wool in a suit of ' clothes and that the price of a pair of boots was sufficient to purchase three or four hides showed that it j wasn't the producer alone who was responsible for high prices. Thc ! people would have to decide whether wages or the costs of distribution was the main cause. ..

Round the Back Way. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 14 April 1921
Rowiä the Back Way. Democrats generally appear to be unable to do much else than . talk, while the very things they incessant- ly denounce are being done before their eyes. Nothing but an absol- ute lack of sincerity could make such men so professedly uncompromising and so absolutely craven in the mat- ter of action. Were it some other sec- tions of the community, who had not studied social questions we would not bé surprised, ^but in the case of or- ganised and enlightened democrats there is no.such excusa Recently thc
Barefaced and Brazen. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 14 April 1921
Barefaced and Brazen. ^Mr. Hughes not only proposes _.to himself that he himself shall go to London once more, to fix up things Australian to suit the Imperial ex- ploiter, but in addition that his_Gov> ernment should be granted immunity from attack by the Opposition. To strengthen the position of the Minis- try he proposes to appoint an addit- ional Minister, or honorary Minister, to be attached to the Treasury, and Joe Cook is to lead the House in his absence. It is difficult to under- stand the apparent composure of the Australian taxpayer, in view of the utter callousness of politicians'gener- ally and of Hughes and his gang in particular. The people would be far better off without a Government ; they would not have the ever-growing Governmental expenses, and joy trips to pay for, while they could not receive less consideration from a cabal of Autocrats. We have had : so much experience with this playing with politics in Australia that it seems a puzzle why it is not denoun- ...
