Trades Hall Refusal TO ASSIST RETURNED SOLDIERS. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 9 March 1917

Trades Hall Refusal TO ASSIST RETURNED SOLDIERS. The refusal of the union representa tives on Sunday last to do anything to help returned soldiers should be a lesson to those returned men who have been deluded into the belief that they had only to join a union and all their troubles would be at an end. The attitude taken up by the union leaders should have shown them that the returned soldier, unionist or non-unionist, is unwelcome. It should have convinced the fighting' man that by the mere action of enlisting to help his country's cause he rendered himself an outcast from his union. Strong indeed must be the faith of a returned man who looks to the extreme socialist bodies to work out his salva tion. A speaker at the conference with Messrs. Coyne, and Hunter counselled re turned soldiers to join the unions and strike for better conditions. Surely these men must imagine that war is a picnic, and that every soldier who re turns is in full possession of his ordi nary faculties. They ...

Election for Both Houses. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 9 March 1917

Election for Both Houses. The decision to hold an election for both Federal Houses must have come as somewhat of a shock to the wiseacres who prophesied a victory for the Hughes Government on the proposal to extend the life of Parliament until October 8, 19.18. It was fairly obvious to anyone who had followed the trend of Federal politics since the defeat of the conscrip tion proposals that the Tudor party would leave no stone unturned to secure the support of the anti-conscriptionists in the Senate. It was equally obvious to Mr. Hughes that even if he could secure a majority of one for the purpose of put ting through his extension proposal, that majority would be only temporary, and would be transformed into a minority by the return vof the two sick Senators to the told of the reactionary party. It would not have availed. the Government much if they had succeeded in prolong ing the life of Parliament, for the Senate majority would have simply indulged in a policy of obstruction, an...

GET ON THE ROLL! [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 9 March 1917

GET ON THE ROLL! The Prime Minister stated on Tuesday that the elections would be held as soon as possible. The general opinion is that they will be held some time in May, so there is not much time to lose. It is therefore imperative that every member of the Returned Soldiers and Patriots* National Political League should get on the rolls as soon as possible, for every vote gained by a returned soldier candi date counts.

The Brisbane Seat. FINLAYSON'S REMARKS DURING CONSCRIPTION CAMPAIGN. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 9 March 1917

The Brisbane Seat. FJNLAYSON'S REMARKS DURING CONSCRIPTION CAMPAIGN. . The memory of the public is short, and there is no reason to believe that the memory of the returned soldier is any longer than the average. 'When Finlay son and Col. Plane go on the stump for the Brisbane seat many people may per haps forget, when listening to Finlay son's honied phrases, that he is no friend of the returned soldier. It is not so long since he made his infamous attack on the boys who have done their 'bit' and heroically made big sacrifices to keep such as he has proved himself to be in safety. He said then: 'The returned soldiers' bodies will be used as dumping grounds for scabs and black legs'; and he also reckoned that the real heroes were the men who stayed at home. It was a glaring insult to every man who flonned khaki, and: to every family which sent a son or father to the front. If those were Finlayson's senti ments then, they are his sentiments now, and, squirm and wriggle as he may, he c...

How Conscription was Defeated LIES, ALL LIES! [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 9 March 1917

How Conscription was Defeated i LIES, ALL LIES! The following letter, sent by Sergt. Harry Hammond to the editor of the 'Mitchell News,' is yet another proof of the lengths .to which the 'anti.'s' were prepared to go to defeat the conscription proposals:— 'On Active Service, December 30, 191*3. Sir, — In letters received by me lately ? I have been informed that at an anticon scription meeting held some time ago in Mitchell the sense, if not the actual words, of- the following was used with the statement that I had written them in a letter home: — 'That I had written to my mother, Mrs. W. H. Hammond, in forming her that reinforcements were not required for the Australian Imperial Force, as there were already in Egypt more than enough men, and, further, say ing that I did not wish my brother to enlist.' I now wish -to inform you that I never in any instance made use of that statement or anything that could have been twisted into such a meaning. But, then, in the hands of an 'anti.' or...

In the Mud! UNIONISTS GROWL. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 9 March 1917

In the Mud ! UNIONISTS GROWL. The meeting between Messrs. Coyne and ' Hunter and representatives of the industrial unions has certainly had the effect of alienating public sympathy from the Labor movement. It must not be supposed that the unionists of Queens land constitute the democracy any more than the I.W.W. is representative of the policy of Labor. There are thousands of workers who are non-unionists, and they constitute the big floating vote which can make or break Governments. It would be an exaggeration to claim that the handful of men who refused to help returned soldiers were thoroughly repre sentative of iQueensland unionism, but they are at least typical of/the extreme section of Labor, which worked tooth and nail to defeat the conscription proposals, and has since taken up an attitude of indifference towards the recruiting . movement. The people who were so deaf to,the appeals of their fellow-unionists in the firing-line were equally deaf to every claim made by the Mini...

Dr. Mannix on the War. PROTEST FROM THE LAITY. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 16 March 1917

Dr. Mannix on the War. PROTEST FROM THE LAITY. The reiterated statements made by Dr. Mannix to the effect that-this is merely a 'trade war' has given deep offence- to many Roman Catholics,, and more1 especi ally to those whose sons have gone to fight for what they deem a most righteous cause. As a result of this feeling a depu tation of leading Roman Catholieis re cently waited on Archbishop Carr to pro test against 'utterances which they held to be disloyal and also inimical to the interests of the church. Archbishop Carr received this deputation, but declined to take any action. Dr. Mannix, he said, had a right to express his opinions on public questions, and he referred them, therefore, to Dr. Mannix himself. On be half of the deputation, Mr. Vincent Nolan then wrote to Dr. Mannix asking him to receive them, as they wished to express their disapproval of Some of his public utterances on political questions. Th6se, Mr. Nolan wrote, were, in their opinion, opposed to the interests ...

An Anti-Australian. WON'T SEND SONS TO THE FRONT. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 16 March 1917

An Anti-Australian. WON'T SEND SONS TO THE FRONT. There is a woman in North Queensland who has seven sons and a number of daughters. She is an extreme socialist — one of the cut-the-painter crew who be- ' lieve not in fighting for their country. She sent the following letter to a resi dent of the metropolis. It is a letter which every loyal man and woman will condemn for its out-and-out disloyalty and anti-national tone. Here it is: — 'I have ten— seven boys and — daughters. Let me tell you I have no sons for that dirty little Welshman, Billy Hughes. When he goes across this time, may a little German water-shark get him. That is all the harm I wish him. If conscrip tion had passed we would have been in a nice mess. I worked day and night against it. I caught old Bamford on the railway station, and gave him h- — . The police had to move the crowd on.

Has Australia Done Her Share ? SHOULD MAINTAIN EIGHT DIVISIONS [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 16 March 1917

f Das Australia Done]Her Share? SHOULD MAINTAIN EIGHT DIVISIONS Not long since, Mr. Matthews, M.H.R., made a Statement in the Federal House to the effect that Australia had done her sharer, in this war, and had suffered more than the rest of the Empire. At least, that is what he inferred. Professor W. Harrison Moore, in a letter to the 'Argus,' makes a slashing reply to that statement. He says:— 'Mr. Matthews, M.H.R., made the statement that Austra lia in this war is being made to suffer more than the rest of the Empire, and demands that those in charge at Down ing-street shall see that Australia gets a fair deal. The facts are these: Austra lia, with a population of five millions, furnishes, maintains, and undertakes to keep reinforced five divisions. In May of last year the United Kingdom, with a population of 45 millions, had seventy divisions to maintain and reinforce. Un der a mere system of divisions and on a basis of population, Australia should have eight divisions. Further ...

RETURNED HEROES. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 16 March 1917

RETURNED HEROES. For the loyal cheers we raise Heaven grant us an easy mind while we gaze On the brave submitting to a nation's praise, While they suffer from apparent mental strain Alternating with intense physical pain. So this fortitude we greet With feelings deep, and see dressed heads, arms, and feet In open cars, bound for comfort in re treat, Under a gallant guard in martial array, Who, in spite of our railings, open a way. Hearts sink, for we think it wrong; 'Midst it all men break into national song, For they see what oft they had prayed for so long — Winding rivers and bays sheltered from harm; Cities, in smoke-like mist, that boast every charm, That expand to catch the eye; Beautiful homes spread against an azure sky, | 'Neath the great, lone hills, where spark link streams flow by, Along which unequalled Nature ensures rest, Where they once were strong, with other heroes blest, ' Where God gives or takes away, Wh&re smiles instead of trials will be night and day....
