Strife Between federal Departments [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 4 June 1921
Strife Beiimit fed eral Departments Australia is a peculiar country, and one which, were an author of a satirical vein, like Swift, to have written a book about it, would be looked upon as an impossible kind of a place, existing only in the realms of fiction. For instance, about five years ago one department of the Fedeial Gov ernment, recognising that one of the principal problems of the future wasi in , maintaining .an efficient supply of oil fuel, appointed a committee of scientists to go into the matter and decide how this suqply might best be obtained. It did &o, and, having come to the conclusion that the only liquid fuel to be obtained cheaply in large quantities is dema tured alcohol, set about making pre parations for the manufacture of this substance Here another department, that of Trade and Custcms, entered into the matter, and on the grounds that its interests, and, incidentally, those ot the revenue, would be affected, were the conmittee of the Bureau of Scienc...

Country Hotels [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 4 June 1921
Cottutrv 99td$ 'Continuance': Since my last article. I nave been asked as to who were. the most. popular banaa£|s in Perth in the early nineties. — Cer tainly the handsomest in Perth was Miss I/aura Clarke, who came irom Adelaide, being safely induced over by the late Gapt. Iockyer. In Ade laide she first served at the Boyal under Mr. Foster, but soon shifted to the more palatial Metropole, under Thomas George Anstruther Molloy, ? who had a liar especially fitted up for her. She rustled the 'wet' world of aristocratic Perth and police, politicians, padres, phy sicians and P'a., and other irlng peas all paid tribntes to her shrine. If you don't believe it, ask Bichard Haynes. At the Federal Hotel, Fremantle, there was another very popular lady in Miss Maggie Murphy, who later shifted to Bunbury, and now rules the rooBt at the Park Hotel Fie mantle; surely the oldest behind the pumps. Maggie could tell lots of tales out of school if she wished, but she was all cautious, and now marrie...
Melbourne Man's Chat The Esperanto Congress [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 4 June 1921
mclboMme man's Biat Esperanto, the 'auxiliary lan guage,' is making rapid, though si Tent progress, according to Mr: J« Pyke, of the Melbourne Esperanto Society, who passed through Fre mantle last week. Pyke, with two other Melbourne gentlemen, is on his -way to Prague, where a congress of some 2.0'JO delegates from all parts of the world is to meet in August. Prague is, no doubt, an appropriate city for an Esperantist Congress, de spite the poetic libel which declares: 'It's latitude's very uncertain, It's longitude's equally vague; But the person & pity, who's not seen tbe city, The beautiful city of Prague.' Prague is to-day the capital of Bo hemia — we decline to amuse gut rea* ders by any attempt at spelling the name of that awful new. country of C's and L's and K's that nobody on earth ever knew how to pronounce, or .could get his tongue round the dreadful consonantal discords, even if he did know. Bohemia is undoub edly the meeting place of the langua ges of Europe — ...
The Unknown Lady [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 4 June 1921
the Unknown my (By 'The Snake?' in 'Aussie.') I do not long to make a fjiss — Far, far from me to raise a dus T o'er Christian peace. But here I ask (The answer is no easy task). The point I make is very plain; And maybe someone will explain You'll often hear a woman say — in fact, you hear her day by day — When some important point of State You think is quite appropriate To mention to a female friend To see which %vay her interests trend; 'Where did you see that stuff?' she'll say. Says vou: ' 'Twas in the press to day.' 'Ihe papers!' she replies with scorn 'From early afternoon till morn They're printing nothing else but bosh. And all the rest is merely tosh!' Now, this is what I want to know: Did ever man the sky below See woman read the current news Except to scoff at men-folks' views?

Precept and Example [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 4 June 1921
Prtcttf and exatnplt — -v— The action of the New South Wales Government in taking definite steps to improve the main roads leading from Sydney has had an im mediate effect' upon the adjoining Shires. Interest is being shown by public men in the Mountains, and the Acting-Premier's assistance ob tained to boom th/jir roads. The same thing happened in Cali fornia. As soon as one district ob tained a decent road, its value be came immediately so apparent that adjoining areas got busy and never rested until the good road was ex tended to them. If our 'Gone 5,000,000' Govern ment won't, or can't, act likewise, perhaps City Engineer Galbraith may — even without his one million six-0-six. In the name of common safety, someone please try! New York State automobilists, or at least a portion of them, will use prison-made plates on their cars for the first time this year. The en tire contract was to have been turn ed out by the State Prison Depart ment, but the equipment was in stalled too late...

Royal Commission Demanded The Diggers Welshed [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 4 June 1921
Royal Commission Demanded The Diggers WelsKed Quite a number of our wealthy and truly right-thinking citizens are somewhat perturbed at present. They are uneasy, very, very un easy — quite unsettled. Strange to relate, the majority of these true patriots are prominent churchmen, Bible thumpers, ultra loyalists, untiring flag flappers, and confirmed soolers of the 'enlist-your- country-needs-you' variety. As above mentioned, these right thinking persons are extremely ill at ease. They look worried and' haggard. Their clothes are begin ning to hang on them. They have exactly the same feel ing as John Oakhurst, the gambler, in Brete Hart's story, 'The Outcasts of Poker Flat,' had when he casual ly remarked that someone was being looked for and it might be me. 'Yes, something rs going to happen if simple justice is to be done our Digger warriors. The sword of Damocles is sus pended by a slender thread.
