THAT DEPUTATION TO HARDACRE. (To the Editor of the "National Leader.") [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 16 February 1917

THAT DEPUTATION TO91 HARDACRE. (To the Editor of the 'National Leader.') ? Sir,— I have been for the past few days pondering over the now-notorious deputa tion to Hardacre, and have come to the conclusion that the deputatfionists forgot the most important items. I think they should have suggested the formatio nof a school children's union, with a few regu lations .siip.h as thARo- — M Tf qtiv hrtw rvt* girl is kept in or caned, members of the union to immediately g0 on strike with out notice or asking for an explanation. (2) Steps to be taken to terrorise the teachers in the event of a fancied injus tice being done to pupils. (3) The 'go- slow' policy, to be inculcated. Only one sum per day to be worked out, one writ ing lesson per week, and one map per year to be the maximum effort of mem bers of the union. (4) Mondays, Wed nesdays, -and Fridays to be school holi days. (5) Any child attempting to work hard, with a view to reaching the top of the class or passing exams., to be imme ...

A Home for Discharged, Friendless Soldiers. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 23 February 1917

A Home for Discharged, Friendless Soldiers. The question of a home for soldiers ' who are discharged, and yet who are not quite physically fit to take up their usual occupations has, ever since the arrival of the first returned men, been exorcising the minds of many of us. The subject has been brought up on. several occasions by the authorities, but so far nothing has been done in the matter. It was at a meeting of the R.S. and P.N.P. League last week that the orga nising secretary (Mr. H. Spencer Foil) drew attention to the matter. 'Time after time,' said Mr. Foil, 'men come in here for assistance, and often they are intoxicated. They are feeling ill and despondent, and arp perhaps disappointed regarding work, and their friends treat them to a drink, and perhaps another and another, with the usual result. Most often they are nerve or head oases, and they are in such a state that they should no$ drink anything at all. If they have no home of their own they get into the hands of the ...

WHY CONSCRIPTION FAILED. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 23 February 1917

WHY CONSCRIPTION FAILED. An Anzac who came home and subse quently returned to duty writes from Perham Downs Camp, Andover, England: — 'You have perhaps heard that Germany is in a state of semi-starvation. Whether that is so or not internally I don't know, but as far as the men are concerned, those in the captured trenches appear to be much better supplied in quantity and quality than we are; Of course, food is none too plentiful in England. Exorbi tant prices, together with the corner in foodstuffs, makes the necessaries of life almost prohibitive. Of /course; you are all anxious about the peace proposals. The general opinion here' is that America will force peace proposals during the next few months, backed, as they 'prob ably will be, by the South American republics. I suppose you were surprised that Conscription was turned down. Well, I was not, and I pointed it out to you prior to my leaving Victoria. You had very little opportunity of gathering the hundred and one reasons attri...

How the Money Goes. COST OF PARLIAMENT. FRILLS AND FRIPPERIES. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 23 February 1917

How the Money Goes. COST OF PARLIAMENT. FRILLS AND FRIPPERIES. While Federal Ministers are ostenta tiously identifying themselves with 'Win- the-War' leagues, which implies a policy of uncompromising thrift in public ex penditure, the cost of the Parliamentary institution in this country is becoming a growing burden on the nation's finances (says the Melbourne 'Age'). Though we are striving to. raise money to meet the heavy burdens of war, the useless ^rnaments and frills and frip peries attached to the Legislature must by no chance be snipped or shaved. Few people are aware that the Federal Par liament costs the Commonwealth nearly £300,000 a year. The salaries of Senators amount to £21,000 a year; members of the House, of Representatives receive £43,400, in addition to which a sum of £12,000 a year is set down as 'travelling expenses.' Added to this is the cost, of Royal Commissions and the printing of 'Hansard', and innumerable Parliamen tary papers. The Parliamentary house hold,...

MAILS FOR THE A.I.F. Mails for the Expeditionary Force, United Kingdom, £nd France (letters and packets only) close at the General Post Office at 8 p.m. on Monday, February 26.

The signature on the envelope is J. L. Noy. If the owner will apply to the secretary at Darragh's Buildings, Queen-street, same will be handed over, or, if desired, forwarded on. I : We should like to know : How are the different anti-socialist bodies to be brought into line without endless friction? Why Frank Tudor thinks Australians should not 'rejoice' when the Allies wipe out a few thousand of the enemy? What is to be the method adopted by the National Federation in selecting can didates to oppose the extreme socialists? What Australia will do after the war to rid herself of the tremendous burden of debt she is certain to be loaded...

Where Socialism Failed. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 23 February 1917

Where Socialism Failed. (By STEWART GRAHAM E) No^y, this question of morals is one about which modern socialist writers are .mostly wary. in admitting their princi ples. In the old days 'free love' was boldly proclaimed as an essential condi tion of socialism, but nowadays, to avoid scaring off the timid semi-converts, the Christian socialists and so on, great care is taken to relegate this phase of social ism to the background. As Mr. H. G. Wells confesses, so far as English and 1 American socialism is concerned, the as sault on the family 'has displayed a quite extraordinary instinct for taking cover.' Nevertheless, that assulat upon the fam ily is as true to-day as ever; the chief difference between the views of modern socialists like Mr. H. G. Wells and those of the 'Palaeo-Socialists' (as he de scribes Godwin and Mary Wollstonecraft, Shelly and Harriet, and even Mr. Belfort Bax), appears to be that the former quali . fies the proposals of the latter on the ' subject of 'free lo...

The New War Cabinet. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 23 February 1917

The New War Cabinet. The new war Cabinet, sworn in at Melbourne on Saturday last, is composed of politicians whose names have been .before the Australian public for a con- 1 siderable period. As was t0 be expected, Mr. Hughes is the leader, and Senator Pearce retains his old seat as Minister for Defence. Mr. Cook takes the place of Mr. Jensen as Minister for the Navy, and Sir John Forrest occupies a position which is not strange to him — that of Treasurer. The Post Office remains in the care of Mr. Webster, and Mr. Jensen, erstwhile of the Navy Department, takes over the Ministry of Customs. The Allot ment of portfolios was doubtless one of the chief difficulties in the way of a working agreement between the Hughes party and that led by Mr. Cook; but the new Ministry is a good compromise, though some may think, and with reason, that it contains too many of the older school. Be that as it may, none can but admit that the majority, with the doubt ful exception of Mr. Watt, are well-tr...

Sports and Recruiting. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 23 February 1917

Sports and Recruiting. i Various reasons have been lately ad vanced for the comparative failure of the recruiting campaign to produce rein forcements adequate to cope with the wastage in the Australian armies. One of the chief reasons, it is claimed, is that while the numerous racecourses in and around the metropolis, and the stadium in the centre of the city, are allowed to do 'business as usual,' they will prove - a source of attraction to the young bloods who, by virtue of their age ana ntne&b for military service, would be better em * ployed strafing the unspeakable Hun in Flanders. The patriotic women of Bris bane were among the first to realise the incapacity of the recruiting authorities to cope with the situation while these resorts of pleasure were allowed to keep up their signs. The recruiting authori ties endeavored to surmount the difficulty by appointing a sportsmen's subcommit tee, which, it was thought, would prevail on numbers of sporting men to enlist withou...
