LETTER FROM STANIFORTH SMITH. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 16 April 1921
LETTER FROM STANIFORTH SMITH. A letter from the late Deputy Ad- ministrator, - Air. Staniforth Smith, from Melbourne to a prominent Dar- win resident, is brimful of hope, and is worthy repeating in part. He says: "I have been working hard iot representation, and I have hopes that a bill will be introduced into the House di Representatives to give the Northern Territory member in that House this coming session, which commences April 6th. I have given interviews to both the daily papers in Brisbane, the "S. M. Her- ald", and the Melbourne "Age" and "HeraTd" and I think I have stated the case clearly and unanswerably for the rights of the Territory to be represented in the Counil of the Na- tion. I had also long chats with certain M Ministers. The "Age" the other day said that'a bill might -be introduced 'jinto the Rouse of Rep- resentatives this session, and that "Staniforth Smith* demands "repre scnation as be»ng absolutely necess- ary in the interests of the Territory."

NOTES AND NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 16 April 1921
NOTES AND NEWS. Mr. Hallam is returning by the Mataram in May and will resume practice upon arrival.-o The cyclone hit the Montoro and drove her fully loo miles back. Ot- herwise the passage was uneventful, and she arrived safely .yesterday morning. The article in last issue anent the beef stunt has aroused great interest amounting to indignation. We under- stand the Administrator is making in- quiries, and probably more will be heard on the matter. Amongst the arrivals in Darwin by the Montoro, was Mr. Robert Philp, son of the ex-Premier of Queens- land. Mr. Philp, we understand,' is going inland. He is a geologist by profession, and is probably connect- ed with some mining concern.
THE LABOR CAUSE, AND ITS NECESSITY. No VI. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 16 April 1921
THE LABOR CAUSE, AND ITS NECESSITY. No VI. I We have seen Kow in the in- dustrial and commercial life of the .country immense wealth is being amassed by the few while the masses are just liv- ing from hand to mouth, or are be- ing pressed . downwards into the ranks of unemployment. In a measure organised Labor is more or less able to force partial or tempor- ary redress in these spheres of oper- ation by the use of the strike wea- pon, though it must be admitted that actual results are still about the same as always. The few holders of wealth, and the proprietors of mon- opolistic establishments are' ever able to add their yearly profits to ac- crued wealth, while the producer of this wealt'&lt; is no better at the year's end than he was at the beginning. i That such a state of things is disast i rous to the Spate's well-being is evid- ent, but its effect upon the morals and temper of the communiity is even worse. Through it we have class warfare, strikes, party hates, extor...
