Hughes and Conscription. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 30 March 1917

Hughes and Conscription. 'The people of Australia have decided that they will not resort to compulsion to fill the ranks of the Australian divisions at the front. The Government accepts the verdict of the people as given on October 28 last. It will not enforce or attempt to enforce conscription, either, by regulation or statute, during the life of the forthcoming Parliament. If, how ever, national safety demands it, the question will again be referred to the people.'^ — W. M. Hughes at Bendigo. Fred R. Brown, 331 Queen-st., Bris.

A Weekly Letter to Billjim. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 30 March 1917

A Weekly Letter to Billjim. . Dear Soldier Boy, — To-night was club night, and one of the boys of 'ours'' was with us for the first time— Pte.'Watson. We got the old book with the first list of names in that we wrote when you first left Enoggera nearly two years ago. It was splendid to be able to exchange information about you. Some of you he saw in England, and others we had letters from and were able to tell him about. I cannot helD wondering how many more there are ] whose mail is like his. When he saw the list against his name of mail and j parcels sent from the club he was sur prised, as he had never had any. It's no wonder some of the boys don't write. I am wondering now if there are others whose mail has gone astray. It seems so strange that some of you get our letters regularly and some get none. I am won dering if the letter in the 'Leader' will have better luck and reach you all. I was very proud to read or zb N.C.O. s out of 'ours,' besides others of boys belong ing to oi...

A SOLDIER'S WEDDING. VENESSE—MACDOUGALL. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 30 March 1917

A SOLDIER'S WEDDING. VENESSE— MACDOUGALL. A great deal of interest surrounded the pretty wedding which was celebrated at ' the little church of St. Michael and All Angels at New Farm on Wednesday after noon last, partly by reason of the fact that the bridegroom, Trooper Hemr Yenesse, Light Horse camp, is leaving shortly for the front, and also because the bride, Miss Lorne MacDougall, 'eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ronald Mac Dougall, Cooyar, is a member of a very old squatting family — the MacDougalls of Rosalie Plains, who were among the earliest pioneers on the land. Because of the Lenten ' season the church was not decorated, but groups of handsome palms, set at the steps leading to the sanctuary, formed a picturesque setting for the bridal party. The bride, who is a slender, graceful girl, was given away by her father, and wore a beautiful gown of ivory duchesse flounced with point d'alecon lace, of which the long, enveloping veil . was also fashioned. A coronet of orange blo...

Youth will he Served. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 30 March 1917

Youth will be Served. The - editor of the 'Daily Mail' says that in the world of politics experience is an asset of some value. Quite right, it is; but experience is not the mono poly of the very old, nor is youth to be denied merely because it lacks knowledge of political trickery. There are^hundreds of youthful Britishers at the front guid ing the destinies of the Empire. On their young shoulders rests the responsibility of life and death. Great issues depend on their judgment, and if they fail the mistake cannot be rectified. In politics an error is just an error, and can be easily put straight; but in war a mistake is irrevocable. The young man, if he is thought fit to be placed in responsible positions in the army, is surely capable of holding a position of trust in the ad ministration of his country. This paper would like to point out to the 'Daily Mail' that an article such as that which appeared in Monday's issue cannot affect the selection of the three Senate candi dates. T...

Disloyalists' Manifesto. A Misleading Document. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 30 March 1917

Disloyalists' Manifesto. A Misleading Document. The manifesto issued by the 'official' Labor party would be amusing if it were not so misleading. It begins by telling the people that the National party will not promise, not to again raise the ques tion of conscription, and bases the state ment on the last sentence of the pledge which Mr. Hughes made recently: 'It is, of course, impossible to see or say what the future may have in store, but it lis clear that the electors of Australia alone can reverse .their previous decision.' There is nothing ambiguous in such a statement; nor could the National party, if returned to power, claim that the elec tors had, by giving them a majority, re versed their former decision. Mr. Hughes made a plain, straightout ac knowledgment of his defeat on the con scription question, and by pledging his party to & course of action which will rule out conscription as an election issue proved clearly that he will not again raise that issue unless the...

THE WEARING OF THE BADGE. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 6 April 1917

THE WEARING OF THE BADGE. Numerous instances have occurred re cently where returned soldiers have visi ted this office and have been received as though they were eligibles who had never proffered their services to their country. The reason for that has been that they did not display the returned soldier's badge, and the officials of the League naturally concluded that they tvere not returned soldiers. If the men who fought for their ? country expect to be welcomed ^by the officials of an orga nisation which is run in the interests of returned soldiers, they should wear their official badge, or at least the badge issued by the Returned Soldiers' Association, so that the officials of the League can weed out the sheep from the goats.

A TOOWOOMBA AMATEUR SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 6 April 1917

A TOOWOOMBA AMATEUR SHOW. ' Much interest centres in the entertain ment being arranged by Miss Bernice Agar, the well-known Toowoomba artiste. It was in her arrangement of the now famous 'Kismet' tableaux in aid of one of the funds, some months ago, that Miss Agar's gift in this special form of artistic work was manifested, and hence the pleasurable anticipation with which the Downs people are looking forward to a^ show entirely controlled by her. It is in aid of the Sock and Comforts Fund, and Mrs. Hubert Fairfax (president of the fund) is acting as business managress. The show, which takes place in the Too woomba Town Hall on Saturday, 15th inst., will include some delightful dances by well-known Toowoomba girls. Misses Florrie Robinson and Beryl Wonderly will do a 'Dance of the Shadows' in wonderful gauzy costumes. There will be a 'Salome Dance,' and two musical items in which dainty little Miss Maud Wilcox will be the soloist, with a chorus of girls in white satin early Victoria...

Margaret! [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 6 April 1917

Margaret ! It was an unusually . busy day that Margaret chose to be interviewed. There had been many callers and a lot of work — a boy, shaken with weakness, asking what the soldiers' paper would do for him, another wanting a job we had, one with a list of names to whom he wanted papers sent, new members, papersellers The last had gone/ There was a mo ments respite when, accompanied by her most obedient servant, margaret ap peared. I looked up from my desk at my helper. She was busy with a pile of letters; the typiste was busy. Then ap peared the lady editor. She wanted something else, and saw Margaret. Then she brought her round the office for the rest of us to see, and Margaret smiled. The interview began at once. Margaret, most obedient, in quiet black, was get ting advice from the office J.P. how to fill in a form for a widow's pension. Mar garet looked at us all, and we looked back and became her slaves, and four of us interviewed her at once. Her most Obedient answered our que...

Major Fry Stands Down. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 6 April 1917

Major Fry Stands Down. I Major J. P. Fry, the returned soldier' who was to have gone to the Senate plebiscite as a soldiery' candidate, played the man last week. When he. heard that his candidature was likely to injure the National cause, on account of his record not including service on Gallipoli or 'France, lie made no bones 1 about it. 'I'll stand down for the best man,' said he; and he kept his word. The candidate who proved more accept able to the organisations outside the R.S. and P.N.P. League was Gunner Foil, who was the League's final choice, and for whom Major Fry gave way. Gunner Foil is the general secretary of the Re turned Soldiers and Patriots' National Political League, and has been at the helm for the' past five months. He is a young man who looks older than he really is, and is a solid, well-balanced person. He should have no difficulty in securing sufficient votes to return him as a Senator. If elected he will probably be the youngest Senator in Australia. His abi...

MARANOA NATIONALIST CANDIDATE. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 6 April 1917

MARANOA NATIONALIST CANDIDATE. Mr^- Herbert Y eates, who is contesting the Maranoa seat against Jim Page, was born at Bowen, Queensland, on January 31, 1879. Head of the firm of Yeates Bros. & Co., stock and station agents, Toowoomba and Dalby, he was always keenly interested in politics and State affairs. He contested the (Federal divi sion of Maranoa in 1913, and polled well against heavy odds. He is a decidedly strong advocate for soldiers' welfare, not only during the war, but one who will never rest until the returned soldiers are properly cared for and given absolute preference in the years to come. He organised the 11th Light Horse Kitchen Fund at Toowoomba, and collected £600, which provided that regiment with three useful travelling kitchens. His two brothers and his partner, Major Percy Bailey, enlisted about 18 months ago for oversea war service. ? V
