Thc War in Ireland. I SOME ENGLISH AND FOREIGN CRITICISMS.

As You Meet lt. CHARACTER SKETCH, BY "TIM TOUCHÜP." THE CORRESPONDENT. j Thc correspondent to the press may not be as mighty, as indispens- able, as omniscient as the quack or military jingo, in the latter's own particular capacities, but jtaken ali round he is the "manaor Galway." Is there a grievance in connection [ with the all important question of I kerbs and gutters or bicycling on the ! footpaths, your indignant correspon [ dent is to the rescue like a "Carmich- ael' contingent; is your'Empire in danger your correspondent nobly comes to the front-with his pen, and I generally blows louder than ' the shrillest regimental? trumpet, -that is, if he can get a hearing in the press,/ as he generally does. If someone ob- jects to an excess of jingoism your propandering correspondent rises in righteous wrath and wipes the floor so to speak, with all and sundry rebels,'; who dare to judge for themselves be- tween right and wrong ; and if ho one Tea^^r^repfies7 tc^is^ap^ngs^îe^ invaria...

Facts, Freaks and Frauds Focus'd (BY " X-RAY) The meat scandal has. been thc chief topic .of conversation for the j past week, and the malodor of the ' thing has in no way subsided.

THE IRISH HORROR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 23 April 1921
THE IRISH HORROR. This powerful article by the Editor of the 'Australian Worker ' displays ' the nobility and sense of justice, as well as courage, of a trueman, and is worthy of being printed in letters of I gold. It is the sort of thing that makes even victims of barbarity for- give the whole out of reverence for the few. We commend it to the up- holders of the murderers and des- troyers : " Even yet the people of Australia do not realise what is going on in Ireland. If they did, there would be indig- nation meetings right throughout the country to prptest against'the fiend- ish campaign of atrocity which the British Government has organised .with the object of stifling the de- mand for Irish self-determination. ' If, they did, they would force their Parliaments to take definite action, and -carry resolutions backing up the Irish nation iii its* just, cause, and voicing a passionate detestation pf the tyranny that is laying the Green Isle waste. . History has many dark pages, but ...

STRANGE, BUT TRUE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 23 April 1921
1 . ? "> STRANGE, BUT TRUE. \ _ It is not in imagination, or in Fairyland, that the following little incident occurred. Some folks may think, it funny, others tragic, and quite a number may attribute it to thc Geneva Conference sort of man- agement- which prevails, and. which Minister Millen' described as "thc rummiest he ever saw." Anyway,; here it is : "It'was'in a tropical'hotel that caters for light pockets and. bulged heads. Occasionally there are.some fancy dishes' served--on the menu,-but not always on thc plate. That is just what happened on the occasion. The "item " was placed oh thc menu« and was really recherche-so the lionel staff thought and having proved that' it was sb, they served their own dinners forth- with, so that when the dinner bell went there was nothing'of the "tit- bit" for the boarders and diners but ! an empty dish-and', the meriu^-thc; tit-bit was off. The landlady went to thc kitchen to protest but . was threatened with coll'sion with the empty dish ...
MR. POYNTON'S VISIT. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 23 April 1921
MR. POYNTON'S VISIT. .'We,have' now definite information that /Mr. Foynton will leave Mel- bourne, next Thursday for Darwin presumably he will comc^by boat ¡and a certain number of public.mat- ters., aré. mentioned .a's those which he proposes torrmake investigations upon with a view to future adjustmclit. Thc number of points mentioned is cer- tainly very limited, but we take it that this limitation Js not n\eant to exclude others which may be present- ed by authorised spokesmen- or in- dividuals. In any case the questions announced for investigation, exclus- ive of those which may be submitted by deputatiion, are sufficiently num- erous and important to demand pre- paredness, cohesion and unanimity on the part of the residents of Darwin, and because oMhis admitted fact, we would suggest that time be taken by the forelock. Now it is hardly likely that the lo- cal municipal council will go outside .matters which more or less concern themselves as a self-governing body; and thc Union...

Open Column. (We do not necessarily endorse the views expressed by correspondents.) A REFUTATION. (To the Editor ) Sir,-having read, thc articles m the local papers rc the missing hams, I vrtmia like io inform thc public through your-paper that thc accusa t'on against the waterfront workers is quite unfounded. Apparently the, Darwin wharfiés were convicted without proper information being ob- tained about the matten Thc bag that contained the hams was tal- lied out of the ship and marked emp- ty by the tally clerk, who at the time of tallying was not aware that^thc hams had been consigned in same, but noting it was an empty 70 lb. sugar bag, tallied it accordingly, The tally clerk and myself inspected the bags delivered in this consignment and immediately cleared up the mat- ter. The hams were taken ever be- fore they reached Darwin and as in all cases, poor old Darwin, is asked to take the blame for all ullages. " I think in future it woud bejbetter to have facts before accusing in...

THE LIE. x The following is the lie published in our contemporary, which the fig- ures , given in the Senate - by Mr. Pearce prove it to be : '.-FACTS STRANGER THAN FICTI0NÍ-When the Government decided to use Fanny Bay Gaol Pad- dock as a landing ground for aero- planes, two big trees 7 were, in the-, road and had. to be removed. The I Work was done to the satisfaction of i the Public Works Department,- but ' the poor old taxpaying public, was [ never given any idea' as to the cost. ; Here are the figures ; belated, per- haps, but interesting nevertheless.

Two motor cars were hired to fake the men to and fro from Dar- win to Fanny Bay each day!; The work commenced on October 28 and finished on Nov. 13' The following figures do not include office expenses or other overhead work : ^ Cost of Removing Two Trees.
