AUSTRALIA'S RECESSIONAL. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 16 March 1917

AUSTRALIA'S RECESSIONAL. Oh, God of Hosts! Give me Thine aid To wake within the nation pride For this fair land which Thou hast made Their heritage; and guide, oh, guide The wakened spirit of their sires To tend my sacrificial fires. The crisis of our fate has come With revd war raging without ruth; Help me to touch the blind and dumb Until they see and hear the truth; Give me the power to make them feel The menace to the common weal. i My men are derelict with doubt, My women with a nameless fear; Help me to cast the traitors out And recreate the insincere, And, where the slim self-seekers go, God! steel my arm and guide the blow. In the high places of the land, Where men unblemished should sit, » Behold, foresworn, a callous band, The peace-priest, and the hypocrite! These are Thine altars they profane; God! help me strike their power in twain. They give no help to those who die That I may live in peace, oh Lord! With unity they raise their cry Disunity to spread abroad; And from ...

LEAGUE WANTS VOLUNTARY WORKERS. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 16 March 1917

LEAGUE WANTS VOLUNTARY WORKERS. The close approach of the most mo mentous political campaign in the his tory of Australi^ renders it imperative that every loyal man and woman should give every assistance to the candidates who will fight in the National interest. If the disloyalists *and cut-the-painter crowd get back to power Australia will have taken a step downward. There can be no two opinions about the result of a Tudor victory. The Returned Sol diers and Patriots' National Political League, while in no way opposed to true unionism, are against the extreme social istic section of the community, and will fight with every ounce of energy they possess to defeat them. Every man and woman w ho can spare the time to assist the League in winning seats for returned soldiers is requested to call on the sec retary of the League. We can do with any number of voluntary workers, and we are certain that no one who has the ? interests of the returned men at heart will fail to respond to our ca...

The Coming Campaign. UNION DICTATION OR DEMOCRACY? [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 16 March 1917

The Coming Campaign. UNION DICTATION OR DEMOCRACY? | , Don't have any doubt about it. The Federal election is to decide whether the ^ Australian democracy is to have control v# of Parliament or whether the union bosses, with their outside body/ which is 'superior . to Parliament,' shall be per mitted to impose their tyrannical dicta tion upon the people. The precious junta turned down t Hughes, Holman, Crawford Vaughan, , John Adamson, Senator Lynch, and scores of other tried old 'Labor stalwarts because they demanded the right, as loyal citizens, to vote and work for com pulsory military service overseas! They claimed that right in the terms of their party pledge, which provided for them , ' a free hand to follow conscience in all 1 matters not included in the party plat form. Antagonism to compulsory mili tary service overseas was not. included in any of the numerous platforms pub v lished by the Labor party. But the junta expelled the loyalists, nevertheless. It seems to be a cri...

LEAGUE APPRECIATED. LETTER TO GENERAL SECRETARY. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 16 March 1917

LEAGUE APPRECIATED. LETTER TO GENERAL SECRETARY. J . ? Mr. H. Spencer Foil, general secretary of the Returned Soldiers and Patriots' National Political League has received the following appreciative letter from one of the League's sympathisers:- — 'Dear Sir, — In this morning's paper I read your letter regarding the returned soldiers, and I am pleased to know that there are some true men like yourself who will do something for our poor re turned boys, who, I am sorry to know, are sadly forgotten in many ways. I ahi with you heart and hand to do what I can for the coming election. You^will please let me know if I can do anything, as I am only too willing. — Yours, &c., H.M.' Notice that the union-controlled organ brackets Finlayson's name with Labor. Electors who believe in national senti ment, and who hate party politics as they j ! hate the devil, will- naturally ask, 'What did Finiayson ever do to warrant his association with the Labor party?' We cannot vouch for the truth...

Lieut.-Col Plane's Policy. EMPIRE PLACED FIRST. NOT A "LITTLE" AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 16 March 1917

Lieut.-Col Plane's Policy, EMPIRE PLACED FIRST. ♦ 1 _ 1 ' NOT A 'LITTLE' AUSTRALIAN. The Returned Soldiers and Patriots' National Political League held a meeting at Taringa on Wednesday night last to form a branch of the organisation. Dr. Culpin presided. The candidate for the Brisbane seat, ?Lieut.-Col. A. C. Plane, who will stand in the interests of the Returned Soldiers and Patriots' Ivfational Political League, spoke at length on the political situation. He said he had not been yet officially selected, but his name was the only one ' before the electors. Mr. Finiayson had done little for returned soldiers; he thought more of the men who stayed at home. The same motive that prompted him to go to the war impelled him to contest this election. Nothing mattered unless we won the war, because if we lost we would lose our independence. He «was no 'Little' Australian, and could not agree with those who did not look beyond the map of Australia. The1 cry 'Australia for the Australians' c...

A Weekly Letter to Billjim. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 16 March 1917

A Weekly Letter to Billjim. Dear Soldier Boy, — There has been no fresh mail from you since last week's letter, so there 4s little fresh to reply to, and the next great ques- 1 tion,. after you, with us is the impending election, r What the elections will show after you return we all know, but for this one we can only hope. If the referendum had not given us a shocking proof of how many anti-British there were among us plotting for our national dishonoir, I should have thought that there could have been no question as to the result. The story of the raider that has been turning its attention to the shipping routes a little nearer to us will be ancient news to you all by the time that you get this. I hope that by that time she will be counted among the 'has-beens' and 'alsorrans.' Personally I think — well, you all know what I think about the use ful purpose that might be served by a few raiders and submarines, so I won't repeat myself, and you never need be nervous about anything th...

Answers to Correspondents. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 16 March 1917

Answers to Correspondents. Old Colonist: Your sweeping condem nation of the whole clerical breed leads us to the inevitable conclusion that you are as bigoted as the people you con demn. The fact that Col. Plane spent six months on the inhospitable shores of Gallipoli excuses, in our eyes, any little shortcomings such as a tendency to sec tarianism. To publish your letter would be absolutely detrimental to our inte rests. * Wullie F.: Yes, it is true that William F. Finiayson stated that the returned soldiers' bodies would be dumping grounds j^or scabs and blacklegs. ^he editor of this paper heard the remark, and the R.S.A. subsequently held a meet ing to consider the question of challeng ing his right to hol(^ his seat. Moewe: It would not be very difficult for a German raider to reach Australian waters from* the Atlantic, and once she got here there would be no lack of as sistance from the enemy in our midst.

THE "NEVER MIND" CUR. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 16 March 1917

THE 'NEVER MIND' CUR. (By 'TOM JAMES.') If you ever hear a fellow Saying 'Never mind the war,' Bet your life a streak of yellow Trickles through his watery gore. Should you back him as a slacker, Or as something even blacker, You'd be surer as a backer Than ? you ever were before. 'Never mind the war,' he cackles, Like a poor old broody hen; He would see us all in shackles, Slaves to Hunnish hate; but, then, He shows every indication Of his Hunnish inclination; He's a let-down to his nation ' And Australia's fighting men. He would leave his dear old mother To the mercy of the Hun, See his father, sister, brother, ? By these butchers badly done. He's a dabster hand at 'skiting,' Always barking, never biting; As for Home and Country fighting — Well, I guess he'd rather run. Words may be mere wind, but, then, so is a tornado.

Which of these Two ? PLANE OR FINLAYSON? [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 16 March 1917

Which of these Two ? PLANE OR FINLAYSON? I . My first sight of Mr. FinlaysOn *was some years ago, at a time of great unrest in Brisbane. Posing then as a mighty man of valor, he was very hot, very ex CHAPLAIN-COLONEL A. C. PLANE, V.D., Who is the prospective candidate to opp ose Finiayson for* the Brisbane seat at - the forthcoming Federal elections. cited, very truculent, and very abusive. 'Great fight,' 'stand together,' 'liberty,' were often heard as he talked to those men he h£s since betrayed and left to fight for him; his valor proved to be purely of the hustings. Although I am a worker and own for forebears those who have espoused the cause of the wooers for more than three generations, Mr. Fin iayson did not impress me except with the futility of his argument. My surmise then — that it was a lot for Finiayson and a little for us — has since been proved . beyond argument. So, hearing the unfavorable comments made by the 'Standard' and Archbishop Duhig, and their friends, I wa...
