THE "TIMES" TILT. Meat Inspection. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 19 April 1921
THE "TIMES" TILT. Meat Inspection. Thursday's issue of our contem- porary contains a cowardly attack, upon Dr Jones, head of the Health Department, in connection with the inspetion of meat proposed to be killed at Fine Creek and sent to Darwin for sale. The arrogant vin- dictiveness of the article is appar- ent and it also displays woeful ig- norance of local requirements. As in several other matters lately the ' juvenile credulity (a strange consti- tuent in an ancient* inkslinger) has led our contemporary into a most unenviable situation. \ Meat inspection is carried out &lt; under the Health Authorities for the safety of the' public. The Chief * Health Officer would be failing in: his duty. both , to the- Govern and |hej public^ ifi:he^allowed -meat, --}' which has! not been inspected to^be" ' sold ¿n Darwin. . The. danger from eating tuberculous* meat, is well known. The presence of tubercul- osis in the N.T. cattle was amply demonstrated by the Common wealth Government ...

OUR LEADER. A Monstrous Hold-up. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 19 April 1921
OUR LEAÖER. A Monstrous Hold-up. One of the crying grievances of householders" of Darwin is the high cost of necessaries. When, therefore, aany :movment which aims at, and would have the effect Of, reducing this cost, particularly in connection with an item the sup- ply of which is at present a per- nicious monopoly, is frustrated, ei - ther by official red-tape or engineered self-interest, a hen ious crime is committed ag- ainst the public. Householders in Darwin have a vivid appreciat- ion of the fact that though " the Northern Territory is the home of beef, so to speak, the retail price thereof in Darwin is exorbitantly high-in most cases, prohibitive. The Price Fixing Board are no above. suspicion,' /but"lin al- loting od-per ib.« for beef it dis- played: a complete lack of acumen and an evident failure to make full investigation. There is,^or rathei was, just a possibility of some -re- lief coming to the unfortunate con- sumers pf Darwin in the shape ol cheaper beef, but thanks...
THE LABOR CAUSE, AND ITS NECESSITY. No. VII. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 19 April 1921
THE LABOR CAUSE, AND ITS NECESSITY. No. VII. 7 We arc quite aware of the fact that a mass of statistics is bewildering,, éven to the intellectual reader, and4 hence, in our treatment of the ques- tion under review we have avoided this bewildering element as much as possible. By way of focusing the facts which the figures we gave ex^ pdse in their awful gravity, we pur- pose in this concluding article to. connect their existence with the de- pendent and unenviable condition of the masses of the people, particularly [ with reference to Australia and Great j Britain. No one will dispute the unwisdom and economic falseness of I a system which brings the many to j the heel of the few--which makes the millions dependent on and subject to the individual's greed, ambitions and domination ; and if this be true, as it is, can there be one honest man found having the temerity to defend the present system of wage-slavery and monopoly-creating? True, there are defenders of the latter under the g...
A Case of "Fools Rushing In." [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 19 April 1921
A Case of "Fools Rushing In." Wc reproduce below a leading article of ours in last Thursday's issue, , and what purports to be a reply in our contemporary of last Saturday. Though they speak for themselves on perusal, wc would point out that thc "Standard" stated that certain meat could not be sent to Darwin "beause the chief Health'Officer said it must not be sent as there was no one to examine it." We also stated that Dr. Jones had only to instruct Mr. Bishop or Mr. Campbell to examine the carcase, as they were the com- petent and official Inspectors, and were ready and willing. The "Times," after much irrelevance and. side-tracking winds up with the admission,that "There is nothing to prevent cattle being slaughtered at Pine Creek and the meat being inspected at Darwin by a compet- ent person." And this, too, after all its fury! This adimission is exactly what we.as- - serted in our leader, and we are astonished that even the literary cult of ? the "Times'* could fall into such a...
NOTES AND NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 19 April 1921
NOTES AND NEWS. Mr. Mallara is returning by thc ¡ Mataram in May and will resume practice upon arrival.-o The Town Band will render a programme of- music opposite the Stadium to-night, at 8 p.m. It is said that in consequence of j the way in which the men worked in I unloading the Montoro this time, thc (charges to consignees have been 5s per ton less than heretofore. Consignees claim further that a reduction in thc railway charges from the present 4s per ton is nec- essary, and should be made. Mr. Watt is degenerating into a sort of political. Diogenes, and can't ñnd any more congenial way of do* ing harm than heading a conspiracy against the national" necessity of the Darwin-Adelaide railway line, thc agreement upon which . he wants to treat as a "Scrap of paper." rgj

FUNNY. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 19 April 1921
FUNNY. Às an instance of the way in which official cussedness is penalising the Northern Territory and its people, it will not he unworthy of mention that a consignment of potatoes for up country, which came by- the Montoro, just missed the train, and, in consequence, had to be handed to the local auctioneer, Mr. E. V. V. Brown, for sale. In view of the fact that there would be no train for a fortnight, and as the consignment of potatoes would not keep, the*" above inconvenience, dis- appointment and loss had to be suf- fered by the consignee. It is a cry> ing shame that there is only a fort- nightly railway service inland.

(Toihc Editor). Süv-¿Witt you kindly allow me space- in your valuable journal to ? bring under the notice of the Mag- got-er-er Bagot Road Board the shocking condition of" the. old Fanny Bay: raod. . For the distance' of at least 250 yards commencing at a point about 100 yards below the pal- atial residence - pf our esteemed townsman, Mr. Neil Mâdson, the road is a delusion and a snare and resemb- les more a bear pit than, a surveyed made road. . / In view of the anticipated congest- ion oil traffic ;on this road in v. thc near future, i.e., the conveyance of contumacious objectors to the,in-j come 'Tax, gaolwards,. I honestly think the Maggot-er . Bagot Road Board should get busy and not hav- ing "Black Maria"' breaking down en route tp durance vile and. thereby further discrediting our already mal- igned public institutions.-Yours; etc;, Y "EXILE."
