His Father's Friend. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 30 March 1917

His Father's Friend. John was the apple of his father's eye. John's father had been sent back from Egypt. That annoyed him very much. 'It's the devil being a reinforcement officer,' he complained to his friend, Col. M'Leod. M'Leod agreed, and added several com ments of an entirely personal nature on the powers that were sending his friend back to Australia. i 'Forty-six isn't old,' insisted John's father. 'Old!' The scorn in Col. M'Leod's voice would haye made the War Office, could they have heard it, raise the age limit to fifty, and then feel they were wronging innocent and defenceless youth. 'My boy is nearly here. Thinks he is coming over to me. Only eighteen.' 'I'll see to your boy.' So M'Leod kept an .outlook for John. He didn't find him at once. Meanwhile he got different notes from headquarters. Some worried him a little, i.e., they caused him to worry his subs., and some of them (by the time the argument was well on at Pozieres) told him he could call himself a General. Joh...

"Acting " Rank. AND EXTRA DUTY PAY. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 30 March 1917

' Acting' Rank. AND EXTRA DUTY PAY. One of thfe real grievances aired by the returned soldier is in respect of the withholding of money due to them on account of extra duty performed by them while holding 'acting' rank. It frequent ly happens that the officer commanding a unit runs short of non-commissioned officers and appoints one of the rank and file to act in the capacity of corporal, such rank to carry with it extra pay ment for the additional responsibility. unrortunateiy tor tne \ acting non-com., the officer sometimes omits to enter and sign the promotion in the man's pay book, with the natural consequence that when the acting-corporal is discharged, after having received extra duty pay, the pay-office officials deduct the extra pay from the amount due to him. One such case occurred recently. The aggrieved one, a Light Horse trooper, acted as a corporal for some months, and was paid for the extra duty. When he returned he was told that as there was no record of his promotion...

Col. Plane's Campaign. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 30 March 1917

Col. Plane's Campaign. Supporters of Lieut.-Col. Plant met last night to form a campaign committee and executive, and to make arrangements for the coming fight. It will be remembered that Lieut.-Col. Plane stated that lie would not make a personal canvass for votes; he was willing to be taken on his policy as enunciated from the platform. Col. Plane's campaign against Finlayson will begin in earnest on Monday next, after which it will be, to use the Colonel's language, 'a fight with bare knuckles.' Not that Col. Plane will indulge in the base personalities which characterise the election campaigns of the disloyalist crowd. He is far too honest and honor able a gentleman to allow personal feel ing to enter into his speeches; but he will give his opponent no 'quarter when it comes to a clear-cut issue between loyalty to the Empire and Australia and loyalty to self and the greedy pack of self-seekers who form the 'official' Labor party. Fred R. Brown, 331 Queen-st., Bris.

The League's Membership. NAILING A LIE. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 30 March 1917

The League's Membership. NAILING A LIE. There is a certain type of politician who is never happy unless he Is circu lating lies about people who may not meet with his approval. He is usually a strong party man, and he revels in log rolling and intrigue. Such a person has been busy of late attempting to injure the Returned Soldiers and Patriots' Na tional Political League by telling the most absurd untruths about its soldier membership. He was overheard recently to make the statement that 'The Sol diers' League has only twenty paid-up 'members.' This paper is not surprised ? at anything such a man might say; what it is astonished at is the gullibility of people who believe such obvious mis statements. To nail such a malicious lie it will not be necessary to give the number of paid-up soldier members of this organisation. That is a matter which concerns only those controlling the League. It will be sufficient to in form the general public that, in one week in January, more than 100 re...

We should like to know: [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 30 March 1917

We should like to know : Why Gunner Foil should retire from the Senate contest merely to suit the convenience of Mr. John Adamson? Why anyone should, by standing down for John, open the door for intrigue and corruption? Why the 'Daily Mail,' while professing friendship for the returned soldier, is in the habit of championing other politi cians at the expense of the returned men? Why youth is a disadvantage to an aspiring politician? Whether the defeat of 'official' Labor in New South Wales is the 'office' for the approaching Federal election? Why the selection of candidates is left to a handful of people supposed to be representing the electors of a big State? Why the preferential vote is not used? What is to be gleaned from the fa'ct ( that a number of ex-Labor members were defeated at the N.S.W. elections? Why the 'Daily Standard' seeks to apologise for a man like Jack Fihelly, who, even though he has not been to the front, swanks a great deal more than Dr. Merrington? ; Who has t...

Who says all Irish Roman Catholic Ardhbishops are in favor of establishing an Australian republic? Listen to his Archgaiters Duhig on the subject of loyalty, and then ponder deeply on all you have heard about sectarianism: 'He hoped to see harmony always prevail, whatever was their religious persuasion or their political creed, that they would be all animated by a desire to see their young country prosper and to keep it as it was at present — one of the brightest gems in the diadem of the King, whose health they had drunk.'

The Nark State Elections. THE WRITING ON THE WALL. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 30 March 1917

The Nark State Elections. THE WRITING ON THE WALL. The State elections in New South | Wales, which turned down the conscrip tion question, resulted in a brilliant vic tory for the National party. Though a victory was not unexpected, no one imagined that the National candidates would score such a sweeping triumph. The crowd standing for I.W.W.-ism and disloyalty trusted to their well-known methods of lying and misrepresentation on the conscription issue to pull them i through, but thev failed isnominiously to understand even the temper of the peo ple. They imagined that the decision of October 28 last was an index to the result of the. State elections, but they never made a more stupid miscalculation. Not only did the farmers, who voted no conscription, return National candidates, but several constituencies represented in the Holman Government by expelled Labor men had the audacity to return those men to power. Of the 22 men who were kicked out of the Trades Hall crowd because of the...

THE NEED FOR MEN. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 30 March 1917

the need for men. \ ? 'The need for men has not lessened. The need for Australia playing her part as becomes a nation of free people is not affected by recent events.' — Mr.v Hughes at'Bendigo. This paper contends that recent events have affected the need for Australia play ing her part. The revolution in Russia, the imminent German o^ensive against the Riga front, the forthcoming interns offensive, all make it imperative that every British dominion should contribute every eligible man to the tiring-line. It is easy to see that the Germans are out to take the Russian Army by surprise while the nation is in a state of chaos. No one doubts that a Russian republic will be a tougher proposition than a Rus sian autocracy, but the reform has not yet been consummated, ' and it is the right moment for Germany to strike. If the Germans force Russia to her knees — and under present conditions we cannot blind our eyes to the possibility — every fit man in the British Empire will be wanted to c...

Returned Soldiers and Politics. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 30 March 1917

Returned Soldiers and Politics. According to the 'Daily Standard' the most interesting feature of the plebiscite on Thursday night last was the defeat of 'Honest John' Adamson by his former private secretary, H. Spencer Foil. Mr. Foil was, together with Messrs. Crawford and Reid, selected by an overwhelming majority of votes. Mr. Adamson Was not in the running. Whatever causes conspired to bring about his rejec tion, there can be no doubt that the electors did not retain sufficient * confi dence in him to give him the opportunity of representing them in the Senate. So confident was Mr. Adamson that he , would be one of the chosen three that he resigned his seat in the State Parlia ment to contest the Senate' election. He would have been much better advised to retain his seat until he was certain of selection. As an old, experienced poli , tician, he surely must be wise to all the tricks of the trade, and he must have known that he stood no better chance than the others of being sele...

A Soldier's View. HOME BEFORE CHRISTMAS. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 30 March 1917

A Soldier's View. HOME BEFORE CHRISTMAS. Gunner Levein writes: — 'As you say, the 7th of the 9th have indeed had their baptism of fire, and I am sorry to say we have lost some very fine men. Our Christmas we spent in the trenchese — not too pleasant a place to spend it in — but someone had to be there, and we were relieved that night, and the next day we got our Christmas parcels. It is ' really good of you to still think ol us all. I hope we shall be back in Queensland long before next Christmas. We are looking forward to the spring.' Sapper Mercer writes: — 'I was in the city of Amiens the other day. It is a fine place. I went all over the Cathedral with a couple of French soldiers.
