A Word to Labor. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 16 April 1921
A*Word to Labor. j I.. The memorable words of the fam- ous speech of General Thomas Fran- cis Meagher, "The man who will listen to reason, let him be reasoned with ; but it is the weaponed arm of the patriot that can alone prevail against battalioned despotism" are worthy of forming tljè text of some ^ndid remarks at this juncture. infiere is not one amongst us who ^would not staunchly maintain that he is imbued with the highest citizen- ship motives, and is true to his cit- izenship duly in every respect. Each of us professes to be amendable to reason, while not discarding the weapon of defence in case of neces- sity ; but yjQ fear that at times our selfishness, and indeed, our disregard - for the rights of others, shows that we are not willing to reason. Inso- far as this/i* true we are thwarting r progress and cheating ji^ticr, bebidos believing our own professions of holding reason sacred. No individual t 'member of any section of this com j muni ty will deny that, as far as the...
Unemployment and Recreancy. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 16 April 1921
Unemployment and Recreancy. The greatest reproach which could be attached to Constitutional Gov . ernment is the fact that such Gov- ernment in recreant; and that our Australian Government is recreant is proved by the fact that the cry of "unemployment" is chronic. The recreancy of this state of affairs is all more intense and criminal in the light of certain well-known facts I such as the youth of this country; its almost total absence of manufactur- ing industries and the reckless-way in which the Government has squan- dered and is still squandering public monies. So far as the history of Aus- tralian employment has gone, it i«; mostly centred round Government billets. Not only is this objective the thing most catered for by Govern- ments but it is also the one most i aimed at by parents and their sons and daughters, the main sustaining industries of a nation being left to ' mere chance. For many years oc- asional patriots have being pointing out the necessity of Australia being s...

Open Column. (We do not necessarily endorse the views expressed by ^correspondents.) (To the Editor.) ?/Sir,--Might, it bc a pertinent ques- tion to ask the Acting Health Officer, or whoever the official may-be who supervises* such matters, why the Darwin Butchery is, permitted to send Out beef from its shop wrapped up in any old sort of newspaper ? Had lie my experiences of having his steak and sausages enclosed in ai sheet of newspaper dated 1914, a pap- er with evidently a doubtful past; though; the aftermath may. prove a brilliant future from a doctor's point of view, he might sit up: and think something required altering. If this should catch the eye of the Adminis- trator (of course he reads, the "Stan- dard ") and as he hails from Queens- land, where, under; Labor administra- tion, such a breach of health regula- tions is met ; by a stiff fine in thc police court, he may become a " dir- ect actiónist '.' and make the lax offi- cial do his duty« One would naturally think that ...
