The War Nurses' Fund and its Origin. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 2 March 1917

The War Nurses' Fund and its Origin. In the early days of the war, before the inauguration of the Comforts Fund, the name of Mrs. James Stodart had be come familiar to many a boy in the trenches who received parcels of extra comforts — tobacco, cigarettes, &c. Colonel Stodart had written to his mother telling her of the wants of the men in the trenches, for in those days it wna nnlv +Tin csinlr anlrHfir whrx mas cared for by the Red Cross. Mrs. Stodart and several of her friends formed a lit tle club and sent parcels and packets from time to time, generally by the transports. Soon, however, when the wants of the men became generally known, the Comforts Fund was formed, and since then has become a huge orga nisation. Having in mind the benefits received from Mrs. Stodart and her friends, on their return among one of the first contingents of wounded, Trooper O'Brien and Privates Percy Smith and j Marron called upon Mrs. Stodart with a request that she should do something for t...

For the Senate. FARMERS' UNION WILL SUPPORT RETURNED SOLDIER. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 2 March 1917

For the Senate. FARMERS' UNION WILL SUPPORT RETURNED SOLDIER. r Judging by the attitude taken by the 'official' Labor party in the , House of Representatives, and the .Senators who have thrown in their lot with Tudor and his crowd, it is fairly obvious that the reactionary majority in the Senate will oppose tooth and nail the proposals brought forward by the Prime Minister to prolong the life of Parliament. Mr. Hughes will be constrained to ask the I Senate to agree to his proposals to have the Imperial Government alter the Con stitution, but unless the 'anti.' Senators are as anxious as the Government to keep their jobs for another twelve or eighteen months without a chance of being thrown out, they will throw out the Government's proposals. It will then rest with the Cabinet to say whether they will send the Senate to the country on the off chance of obtaining a working majority in that Chamber, or take the risk of a general election.' When these lines were written the outlook was...

Soldiers' Settlement. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 2 March 1917

Soldiers' Settlement. At a meeting of the Cairns Shire Coun cil on Monday last one of the members remarked: 'It has been said that we were committing our returned soldiers to penal servitude.' While in no way subscribing to, such an opinion, the 'Leader' has a suspicion that all is not well with the magnificent Government scheme for soldier settlement. The Beer burrum lands are now occupied by a handful of returned men, the majority of whom are beginning to grumble. They are clearly dissatisfied, not only with the system of tenure, but with the quality of the land. A prominent resident of the district informed a representative of this paper quite recently that the soil at Beerburrum is, on the whole, useless for the production of any crop unless it is highly impregnated with fertiliser. Some of the ridges are, he says, capable of producing fruit without extraneous aid, but on the flats the soil is so poor that, the fruit will be practically grown in fertiliser. As he put it, 'If one...

Keeping the Turk Busy. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 2 March 1917

Keeping the Turk Busy. Notwithstanding that the capture and occupation by Kut-el-Amara by the Bri tish force is a brilliant British victory, and a volteface on the part of the Turks, it must not be supposed that it presages the early conclusion of the campaign in Mesopotamia. Nothing short of a couple , of army corps will be necessary to en tirely flatten the Turkish resistance, and it is doubtful, owing to the huge demand on shipping and the losses by sinking, whether the British Army would be equal to such a aemana. if the fall of Kut has not brought the Mesopotamia campaign to an end, it has at least en hanced the prestige lost by the Allies when Major-General Townshend surren dered with his division last year. The ill-fated expedition commanded by that gallant and brilliant soldier was doomed from the outset to destruction or capture. It was too small, in the first place, it was ill-equipped with medical stores, and it^- lines of communication were rendered difficult by the abse...

THE "NATIONAL LEADER." [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 2 March 1917

THE 'NATIONAL LEADER.' The 'National Leader' was established in September, 1916, by the Returned / Soldiers and Patriots' National Political Leagle as their official organ. Since its inception the 'Leader' has been the champion of preference to returned sol ; diers, and has never ceased to advocate a big national policy for Australia. The paper put up a strenuous ngnt ror ine introduction of compulsory service in Oc tober last, the second month , of its exist ence, and since that time it has been steadily forging ahead. It has now an extensive circulation, both in the metro polis and in the country, and the list of annual and half-yearly subscribers is rapidly increasing. Up to date no fewer than 450 subscribers are on the books of the 'Leader,' and it is hoped that the enlargement of the paper, which is to be made shortly, will induce a great many people who do not now read it to become annual subscribers. 1 The Assistant Minister for Justice is, in his enthusiasm, someitimes unfor...

A Weekly Letter to Billjim. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 9 March 1917

A Weekly Letter to Billjim. It is the intention of the 'National Leader' to publish -each week a letter from Mrs. C. Andrews (president of the Gum Leaf Club) to the boys in the tren ches. It was the custom of Mrs. Andrews to send a weekly circular to Billjim, but the work was taking up a good deal of her time, and it was suggested that the 'Leader' should , be the intermediary. This is the first letter, and it is full of interest: — Dear Soldier Boys, Although most of you have told me quite frankly that you do not like the circular letter as well as the personally written one, I hope you will approve of this new departure. I cannot help think ing that you will prefer this letter regu larly, and appreciate the kindness of the editor of the soldiers' papers in putting this space at the disposal of our club. My time is yours, as it has been since those days that seem so far away, and are really less than two years, when I first met most of you at the old camp at Enoggera. Our club has ...

Answers to Correspondents. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 9 March 1917

Answers to Correspondents. [No notice will be taken of communica tions insufficiently stamped, and we cannot guarantee to return MS unless accompanied by stamps.] M.E.R.: Your question conveys an inuendo that the British immigrants vote against conscription. Do you know that more than seventy-five per cent of the men in battalions of' the first division were born in the British Isles. The 'anti.'s' have a proportion of immigrants among them, I have no doubt, but to cast such a slur on all the immigrants who have come to the Commonwealth is a little over the limit. Ignorance is not so surprising, nor such a mark of inferiority, as unwillingness to learn. He who grows indignant when his veracity is questioned generally has good and sufficient reason therefor.

We should like to know : Why Senator Watson made a charge of corruption against Federal Ministers? Why unionists are unwilling to help returned soldiers ? Why Mr. Hunter and Mr. Coyne are co anxious that the unions should help the returned soldiers? * What is to prevent the returned sol diers helping themselves? Why visitors from other States are so cocksure that k non-political body of re turned soldiers can do all that is re quired for returned men? Is the present State Government afraid that the returned soldiers will become so powerful that they will menace the safety of the Government? Who is right about this meat contro versy, the State or the Federal Govern ment? How the sugar situation will end? How two separate bodies representing 14ie employers in the sugar industry can hope to obtain the desired end — a review of the Dickson award — by entering into conflict with each other?

PEACE IN CHAINS. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 9 March 1917

PEACE IN CHAINS. Love sought fair Peace by land and sea, But Peace was thrall, to treachery, A captive of a tyrant vile, | Her tears a jeer, her prayers a smile. Love sought fair Peace through Europe wide; ; At Calpe's gate, where great fleets ride, j ltaiia s nins ana rigris nooa, TheYe was nought but war and streaming blood. Weeping women and dying men, For Peace was thrall in the Hun ghoul's den. s Love sought his love on . the Russian plain, On the wild North Sea, on the western main. Doom soared in the air on- the zephyr's breath, In sea depths lurked a cruel death; For the Huns' black curse was over all, Earth was draped in a funeral pall. ^ Death ruled the West, Death ruled the East — Foul ferment from the devil's yeast. Love sought fair Peace by land and sea, But all he found was misery. But Love is wise and Love is bold, Stronger than Might an hundredfold; Love sped him North, where freemen grow, . »?? ? Love sped him South to the land we know. The Austral men have heard th...

Where Socialism Failed. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 9 March 1917

Where Socialism Failed. (By STEWART GRAHAME) Quite so; but for the present there are numerous unpleasant tasks which must be performed by manual labor; who will do them now? It is not courageous of ?Mr. Blatchford to hide ^behind a lady, whose not very practical argument re minds one of Dr. Johnson's suggestion to the weary postman who had still two miles to walk to deliver a single letter. ('Why don't you put a stamp on it and post it?' enquired the doctor.) 'For an answer to this question I must refer you back to my chapter on 'Socialism and Slavery,' ' says Mr. Blatchford. Refer ring back, the reader ifinds Herbert Spencer attacked for describing socialism the 'the coming slavery.' 'Mr. Spencer's idea appears to be that under socialism the State would compel men to work against their will, or to work at occupa tions uncongenial to them,' Mr. Blatcib to work. It would only enable all men ford complains. 'This is a mistake. The State would not compel any. ...man or work. It would o...
