No title [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 21 April 1921
The ' Standard ' has gone so rapid- ly^ to the front that its success -has created a record in journalistic ven- tures. We, ourselves, believed that it was a fairly worthy representative of Darwin, and the Territory, but the appreciation which is in evidence signifies something which we have just too mitch modesty to lay claim 9wr ¡ ..tx wi -. ...i ._ iius:. ; :.t .-i. i '. -¿J*...

MUST HAVE FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 21 April 1921
MUST HAVE FOOD. Rev. Father O'Reilly, rector of St. John's College, Sydney, speaking at the annual demonstration of. the workers Educational Association, said if it came to a question of starv- ing for want of a loaf we take; whether Brookfield said it or not, I say it. Continuing he. said he regrett- ed what the workers said about the clergy was^not flattering; they said the clergy were on the side of the capitalists against the workers. That did not apply to him. Man had an absolute right to get food? if he had to take it without sanction the Gov- ernment should pay for it.
FEDERAL POLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 21 April 1921
FEDERAL POLITICS. The Prime Minister has not yet made any sign as to the action the Government proposes "" to take. Hughes is to meet the Council.of the. ? National Federation on Thursday. No special political significance is at- tached to this event. Doubtless the i Prime Minister's intentions will be- come clearer after consultáation with his colleagues in cabinet. Up to' the present even Ministers profess to be in the dark regarding what Hughes proposes to do. Tudor stated he had no comments to make on the situation beyond pointing out that there seemed to be a misunderstanding in some quarters concerning the actual state of parties in the House. It had been claimed that the Government had a clear ma- jority over the combined strength of the Labor and. Country parties. Act- ually the Government could count at most on 37 supporters on the floor of the House; that number also was the combined strength bf the two parties opposing the Ministry, thus on a strictly party vote with the1...

TERRORISM IN IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 21 April 1921
TERRORISM IN IRELAND. Thus the Sydney * 'Worker/' : ' Nothing more horrible than the execution of Sinn Ferners in Cork , has ever been recorded against a civ- ilised nation. j The men were found guilty by a I tribunal composed entirely of their enemies, and condemned to be shot as rebels. M The sentence was carried out with a superfluous barbarity that suggests I a devilish brain at work behind the j guns. Archbishop Walsh, of Dublin, in the course o£ an indignant protest, described the terrible affair in these words : " The victims, were shot two by two; four having to stand aside within hearing of the shots whilst ¡ the first pair were done to death. 1 Similarly the next pair were kept I in agonising suspense while two more were disposed of. With re- finement Of cruelty a quarter of an hour was allowed to elapse in the I intervals ! Could a more scandal ous form bf reprisal be devised ?" The Archbishop's disclosure will deepen the hatred of the British Gov- ernment in Irish hearts...
THE MEAT HOLD-UP. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 21 April 1921
THE MEAT HOLD-UP: I Confounded by the force of logic and fact, our contemporary shifts its ground to a point from which to at-. "v tack Mr. Pearse, and, circumstantial I ly» to boom Dr. Jones and meat king [ Holmes. Our contemporary doesn't think itself "Cowardly" in doing this; we know what the public think. We are still waiting for an explanation as to why Dr. Jones ordered that "The - beef roust not be sent to Darwin as there was nb pre-mortem examinat- ion" and why our contemporary, speaking for Dr. Jones-and possibly for Mr. Holmes-announced that. .. "The beef could be sent to Darwin and examined" here." That's all that . is in the whole thing. The public, as well as ourselves would like to know/ how a chap can successfully come off the "horns bf á dilema," or prove that-. ; two and two make five. ?'-j.--.

Mr. Quigley received a wire during the week from a friend in Wyndham stating that there would bc no "kill" there this season. This is bad news. Conferences are being held almost daily in this connection and we trust personal jealousies or animosities will not be allowed to damn the gen- eral well-being. 'The prospects for a "kill " at Ves tey's next season, are still in doubt. We understand that if certain reason-...
"BLACK FRIDAY! " [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 21 April 1921
. "BLACK FRIDAY! " ! . ' . -" I Sympathisers with the cause oí hu- manity anti justice everywhere, will hear with extreme regret ot the turn of events in connection with the e£ tort of the British coalminers to se I cure a rectification of the wrongs which they have been long enduring. j .Their wrongs have been admitted, in- j asmuch as they have* not been denied | j and they took every peaceful and j constitutional step to have them righted before declaring a strike. -They appealed in vain; they showed that the wages they received was not sufficient to maintain them and their families in anything like decency; that the cost of necessaries had . risen 141 per cent, above the pre-war rates, and that their lives under the circuni- ' stances were-slavish and unbearable. No stronger case could be jnade out, and yet the mineowners and the Gov- ernment that backed them remained stolid and immovable. It looked for a time as if the miners must triumph. All the big organisa- tions expressed ...
