HIGH COURT FATUITY. FOUR JUDGES TO BEFOOL JUSTICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 19 September 1920
HIGH COURT FATUITY. FOUR JUDGES TO BEFOOL JUSTICE. Litigants whose business has come before the current session of the High Court in Perth have had a rather unfortunate experience, inasmuch as only four of the five High Court Judges came to WJL, and the result has been that, on two cases in one day, the bench was evenly divided . This result is highly unsatisfactory, the decision being given, as custom dictates in such a circumstance, in accord with the finding of the lower court, while the successful litigant is de prived of the benefit of being awarded costs. Surely such a muddling arrange ment might have been avoided? II the whole five judges could not come West, why not three only? The Mirror does not know who is to blame, and, incidentally, has no interest in any of the cases, but the whole affair savours of con temptuous treatment of this State, and it is greatly to be hoped that the mistake is avoided for the future.
IRISH REPUBLICANS' POLICY. Clear-Cut Declaration of Right. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 19 September 1920
IRISH REPUBLICANS' POLICY. Clear-Cut Declaration of Bight. One reason why Billy Hughes, the Boodlers' best friend, is opposed to Ireland being ruled by Irishmen is to be found in the following declara tion, made by the first public ses sion of Dail Eireann (Irish Republi can Parliament) : — 'We declare that the Nation's sov ereignty extends not only to all the men and women of the Nation, but to all its material possessions; and that all right to private property must be subordinated t© the public right and welfare. 'We declare that we desire our country to be ruled in accordance with the principle of Liberty, Equal ity and Justice for all, which alone can secure permanence of govern ment in the willing adhesion of the people. 'We affirm the duty of every man and woman to give allegiance and service to the commonwealth, and declare it is the duty of the Na tion to assure that every citizen shall have opportunity to spend his or her strength and faculties in the service of the people...
Tweaks & Squeaks [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 19 September 1920
Tweaks & Squeaks When a plumber makes a mistake, he chaises twice for it. When a lawyer makes a mistake, he has a chance to 'try the case all over again. When a carpenter makes a mis take,' it's just what^he expected. When a doctor makes a mistake, he buries it. When a iudee makes a. mistake. it becomes the law of the land. * When a preacher makes a mistake, nobody knows the difference. But when the Mirror makes a mis take — good night! A sense of humour is that which makes you laugh at something that happens to somebody else that would make you sorry if it happened to you. A young parson was addressing a school class at one of the timber mill schools recently, and he was trying to enforce the doctrine that the hearts of the little ones were sinful and needed regulating. Tak ing out his watch and holding it up, he said: 'Now here is my watch; suppose it doesn't keep good time — now goes too fa*st, and now too slow. What shall I do with it?' 'Sell it!' shouted a flaxen-haired...
Maylands Mems [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 19 September 1920
Maylands Mens Lay in plenty mosquito stuff. The Immigration Department has ar ranged for millions of fresh nippers this summer. The good old Algae is working again. Smells more liWp the real McKay. Just like a wowser's re treat, where phenyle is unknown. One of these days instead of talk ing, a vigilance committee should go along. I think a few sticks of frac teur would soon settle Mr. Algae. ? u— Use leather insoles instead of cork. Better for feet, and last much long, er. Retchford put me wise to this, and I pass the good news along. There is a grocer'-s backyard not nearly a mile from the Town Hall, which badly needs cleaning and dis infecting. Most of last Summer's flies must have got a kick-off from there. Are you listening, Mr. Health Board. We are getting home on the water brigands this season. Hoses are getting stiff joints through hanging up. Plants are quite independent. Perhaps the meters will work over time, or the Department will man age a clerical error, so that we wil...
Do You Remember the Good Old Days [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 19 September 1920
Do You Remember the Good Old Days — When one could afford bacon and eggs for breakfast? When .you could go home and put on your 'other clothes'? When you could pick up a de cent overcoat at your shavery? When you could get a seat in the Subv tram? ' When the quickest way of getting into business touch with anyone was by the automatic telephone? When young women dressed so modestly that it was a treat to go to a musical comedy? When you could pass the whole evening reading the morning news paper? When you could get married and settle down instead of- getting har ried to settle up? One: 'You should give your wife the money she wants.' Second: 'There isn't enough made to do it!' The Comedian: 'Whatever be came of that pretty girl from York who used to look so well in the front row of the chorus?' The Soubrette: 'Her modesty got the better of her and she went back home.' ^Couldn't stand the tights?' 'Oh, she. didn't mind those so much, but she drew the line at the fashionable clothes Pe...
People About & About People [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 19 September 1920
People About & About People Hughie the Baker is a Chinese linguist. Learnt in Little Bourke street marking lottery tickets. Overheard at Friday's grand par- ade as the redoubtable "Drewey" rode gallantly by the cheering crowds mounted on his gaudily cap- airsoned Clydesdale: No. 1 Female: "Oh, look at that horful Drewey Dyson; he is all be- hind." No. 2 Ditto: "Well, he has plenty in front all the same." "The most varied and novel pro- cession ever seen in Perth," was the unanimous opinion of all who wit- nessed the Uglies' great pageant on Friday. The name "Sunday Times" has been entirely obliterated from the Forrest-street resumption golden egg. You see it might have drawn too much attention to the stench- ful Hoe transaction. The shingle hung out now reads, "W.A.G. Rys. Accounts Branch." The first duty of the "accounts" branch should be to account for the £5,300 looted from the people of the State. But per- haps they are waiting in common with the public generally for the...

TEACHERS AND APPEAL BOARD [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 26 September 1920
TEACHERS AND APPEAL BOARD — \j — In the matter of the Public Ser vice Appeal Board, * The Sunday Mirror warned its readers to note the effect of the Government in sisting upon a Judge of th-j Supreme W.A. Court, or any Court, sitting as President of the Appeal Iioard. Fur ther, we pointed out the entirely un satisfactory nature of 'the method pursued so far as the teachers were concerned. The position is that the money or salary or allowance or immediate increment is not the only question rto settle so far as the teachers are concerned. Conditions are in some ways much more im portant than this or that precise sum in cash. The effect we point out of the Mitchell Government's policy is to put the Education De partment officials upon trial for the methods pursued before a Public Service Appeal Board. Tb; Edu cation Minister (Mr. Colcbatch) knows nothing about it at all, and so sends down Mr. Hope Robertson , on an angling expedition to spy out the position and to pose the Court with c...
MESOPOTAMIA MADNESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 26 September 1920
MESOPOTAMIA MADNESS. Why is Britain spending £30,000, 000 a year on military operations in Mesopotamia? Why are British lives being sacri ficed, and British treasure squander ed in that sun-bitten country? It is not being done in defence of 'poor Belgium.' It is not in a spirit of chivalrous championship of some treaty or other. Indeed, it goes on in utter contempt of what should, be the greatest treaty ever signed by the plenopotentianes of tne na tions — the Covenant of the League of Nations. If the principles supposed to be involved in the settlement that was drawn up at Versailles, and later embodied in the League Covenant, mean anything at all, they mean that all nations and all peoples, great or small, weak or powerful, must have the freedom and right to determine for themselves who their rulers shall be. The people* of Mes opotamia can in no way be held to constitute an exception to this rule. Why, then, is Britain expending millions of pounds and sacrificing hundreds of live...

Under the Lash ATROCITY TWADDLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 26 September 1920
\ ATROCITY TWADDLE. When 'we' are bankrupt in argu ment, 'we' always start an atrocity campaign. At first 'we' «, didn't hate the Germans hard enough; so 'we' primed ourselves up with plenty of tales about exquisite at rocities, and, haying worked oursei ves up into an intoxication of hor ror, 'we' labelled it 'patriotism,' and enlisted, and bought war bonds, and sent white feathers, and waved union jacks, and sang National aj» thems, etc., «tc. Finally, tnanss to the atrocities, 'we' won the war, and Messrs. Hughes and Lloyd George won the elections. Now, without doubt, .a lot of atro cities did occur during the war. The question is, were they confined to one side? And if Germans who committed atrocities should be pun ished, should not- other people who indulge in similar amusements also be punished? Here is an example. Says the Sydney 'Worker': 'Some months ago four Allied Generals— American, British, French and Italian— issued a report con demning the Greek troops in Asia Minor f...
Corpse Snatching Cormorants A GHOULISH INDUSTRY—RUN IN A GHOULISH MAMMER—CALLOUS CORPSE SNATCHERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 26 September 1920
Corpse Snatching Cormorants A GHOULISH INDUSTRY— RUN IN A GHOULISH MANNER BY CALLOUS CORPSE- . SNATCHERS. Ghoul : A\ fiend given to the practice of eating the flesh of corp ses. — Diet, of Magic. The famous South Sea Bubble brought . forth a plethora of queer concerns, or 'undertaking,' as the current phrase ran. There were undertakings for all sorts of pur poses, including one for 'a purpose hereafter to be revealed.' But only one proved a success — the 'under- taking for burying the dead.' A glance at the ' methods of the un dertakers of to-day seems to pro vide the answer to the query, why? Usually speaking, one goes to an undertaker's establishment in no mood for the display of commercial acumen. And Mr. Undertaker knows it, and trades on the fact. His price will range just as high as he fancies his victim is prepared to pay; he plays cunningly on the feeling of the customer for the de parted one — wife, child, parent. 'Indeed, have 3-ou lost your wife, Mr. Blank?' 'Yes, yes. Yo...

What's Doing in Parliament [Newspaper Article] — The Sunday Mirror — 26 September 1920
What's Doing in Parliament Hon. W. C. Angwin (deputy Labour Leader) put &p a good 2i hour go on the Estimates — it was a rattling speech, and we'd like to print more of it, but here are a few of the best: The millions referred to by the Premier are millions received from the products of the labours of the community, and have not been brought about by strict economy or any special assistance ^rendered 'by the Government. The farmer has (made increased profits through the increased price of wheat, and in the same way the mill owner Kas benefited through the increased price of timber. So, too, has the pastoralist gained by the increased price of wool. But where does the great majority of the people come in? After due in quiry tie Arbitration Court has been impelled to increase wages. Why? Because there has been a large increase in the cost of com modities, and the .great majority of the people, instead of reaping ad vantage by the increased value of our exports and imports, are...
