JUSTICE TO IRISHMEN. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 23 February 1917

JUSTICE TO IRISHMEN. (To the Editor.) Sir, — There has been a great deal of controversy on 'Sectarianism' of late, and on both sides erroneous statements have been made, and, as far as I have seen, there has been no contradiction, either in the letters of the correspondents or the leading articles appearing in the various newspapers. The errors I refer to are: — First, the writers on the Roman Catholic side charge England with being antagonistic to the Catholic Church. This statement is not true, and if they use their eyes they will see their error. England to-day is pouring out her blood in defence of Roman Catholic countries, and we have only to look at what she has already done, at what she is still doing, and at what she is determined to do in the defence of these same coun tries to show us that the statement re ferred to above is absolutely false, and is made by men who are altogether void of truth. If Irishmen who to-day are villify ing old England had as much thought for the ...

When the Boys Return. WHAT WILL THEIR WELCOME BE? [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 23 February 1917

When the Boys Return. WHAT WILL THEIR WELCOME BE? I had a returned soldier in to see me the other day. He .was an ordinary every-day sort of individual outwardly, typical of the great , - .army of patriots who, at the call of duty, threw down the tools of their trade or prof esion and sallied forth to uphold the cause of righteousness and justice. He had been wounded at Pozieres and he walked with difficulty, supported by the stick in his right hand. He wore on his breast a ribbon, emblematic of an honor conferred on him for distinguished conduct, somewhere in France. 'Yes,' he said, in answer to my look of enquiry 'I got that .smack at Pozieres. I did not want to come home, but they ' told me it would take so long to heal and that I would be better at home.' 'But,' he added, with a glint in his eye 'I'm going back as soon as I'm able,' spite of the rumors about the casual treatment meted out to us returned men. I can't think of those poor chaps over in France, facing the rain of sh...

THE UPPER HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 23 February 1917

THE UPPER HOUSE. The proposal by the Ryan Government to ' put the question of abolishing the Upper House to a referendum of the people of Queensland is quite in keeping with the unenviable record established by it during the past session. The Ryan Government is to be admired for its courage in proposing such a drastic step as the abolition of the House of Revision, for the majority of electors know well enough that without the moderating in fluence of the Legislative Council the statute books of the State would be filled with legislation passed at the behest of the extreme socialists of the Trades Hall. Even with the restraining hand of the Upper House on the political bridle the Government has shown a tendency to get the bit in its teeth and bolt. Without the Legislative Council the Government would ultimately dash the State into headlong ruin. If there is any necessity for such a step as that proposed by the Government — and this paper fails to see where the necessity arises — it ...

With the Light Horse in Egypt. BAYONETS ON HORSEBACK. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 23 February 1917

With the Light Horse in Egypt. BAYONETS ON HORSEBACK.' Mr. Andrew Grant, 'Toynton,' Vulture street, has received the following inte resting account of the battle of El Arish from his son, Pte. Andrew Grant, 2nd L H, Field Ambulance: — 'I suppose you have heard of the latest fighting in Egypt. A full aecount of it has appeared in the 'Egyptian Mail,' so I hardly think the censor can object to me mentioning it. As you know, ever since the battle of Romani we have been building the rail way and laying water pipes .in prepara tion for an attack on El Arish, which was the Turkish base, and which they cap tured in their first advance on the canal, early in 1915. We expected a strong resistance there, but after our monitors had bombarded it for a couple of hours our men marched through it without any resistance, the Turks having evacuated. Before' I go any further I will tell you that our brigade was not engaged in the actual fighting, as. we were on the flank. The Australians and New Zea ...

(To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 2 March 1917

(To the Editor.) Sir, — In your paper of last week volun teers are called to form a company of returned soldiers. Now, Sir, this seems to be a pretty rotten state of affairs when men who have already bled for their country and have been honorably dis charged have to have another go. I think it would be a good idea if the recruiting-officer were to take a trip into some of our Government offices and workshops during the dinner-hour and see some of those who are holding back, and whose chief recreations are going to see 'Kid Somebody' give 'Knockout Somebody' a hiding at Brisbane's box ing stadium, or else going out to the 'Farm' and trying to pick up golden eggs. These things are perfectly true, as I have the doubtful honor to work with them. — Yours sincerely, ONE WHO CANNOT GO BACK. Brisbane, February 20, 1917. H.G.L. writes as follows: — (To the Editor.) Sir, — I herewith submit to *you a num ber of different classes of work which I think could be easily performed by dis abled sol...

TO SLAY THE DRAGON OF DISLOYALTY. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 2 March 1917

TO SLAY THE DRAGON OF DISLOYALTY. One of the leading newspapers in Bris bane remarked recently that 'the deci sions of unrepresentative political bodies means nothing. Only a powerful, nation wide organisation, with a platform based on principles that appeal as well to nav vies as to millionaires can win this elec tion.' To which this paper can merely retort that a platform which would ap peal to a millionaire would not appeal to a navvy, and vice versa. In the pre sent unsettled state of Australian poli tics it would be almost impossible to frame a platform to:which neither Labor nor Liberal nor returned soldier nor far mer could take exception. The fact that the walr is still raging is irrelevant to the issue. No nation-wide organisation of the type indicated by the journal in question could be established on a firm basis in six months; nor could a platform containing practically a single plank, 'Win the war,' alone secure millions of adherents. Every loyalist in Australia, of wha...

Where Socialism Failed. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 2 March 1917

Where Socialism Failed. (By STEWART GRAHAME) / One of the first dissentions arose from the women's objection to remain in the stuffy atmosphere of the holds, below the water-line, from sunset till sunrise. It was not much fun for either sex to spend many hours couped up in the dim light provided by a smoking hurri - cane lamp, and in consequence many filGp.t.firi tr» RTipnrt th ft erreatfir nnrt nf t.hp / ? night on deck discussing the beautiful principles of socialism with some kin dred- spirit under the open ' vault of heaven. If that kindred spirit happened to be of the opposite sex there, could be no logical objection, since sex equal ity under socialism implies the permis sibility of the warmest comradeship be tween any man or woman in spite of the fact that either or both may happen to be married. This is a question, how ever, about which Lane did not profess to be logical. He only believed in liberty ( esuality, and fraternity within certain limits, and so issued a decree ' f...

O'Neill left with the 11th of the 9th Battalion on October 21. 1915. and was renorted as having been killed on September 5, 1916, in France. {Mrs. Mitchell has received a letter from Pte. Jas. Mitchell, of the 31st Battalion, stating that the young soldier had just gone into the position he had left. That letter was dated No vember 6, 1916, two months after the boy was reported killed.
