A Tree of Life. THE VALUE OF EUCALYPTUS OIL PRODUCTS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 5 April 1919

A Tree of Life. THE VALUE OF EUCALYPTUS OIL PRODUCTS. The value of eucalyptus oil and extracts as germicides was first brought under public notice some thirty years ago by a Victorian scientist named McLean. This gentleman, as the result of private re search work which he bad been carrying on for a long time, publicly stated that as a germicide vaporised eucalyptus oil was from four to five times more efficient than carbolic acid, and that its use was free from the known danger attending the careless use of germicides having a car bolic base. Naturally, like all other prophets, he bad no honor in . his own country, but European scientists hearing of this dis covery made independent tests which fully bore out the conclusions arrived at by the Australian investigator. The result of this foreign research work was that a strong commercial demand soon set in for this Australian product A little' later Mr. McLean paid a visit to America, landing In San Francisco during a very severe epide...

Tragedy of the Conscientious Objector. A DISGRACE TO BRITISH CIVILISATION. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 5 April 1919

Tragedy of tibe Conscientious Objector. A DISGRACE TO BRITISH CIVILISA .' -: TION. The revelations made by the Royal Commission which has been Inquiring into the treatment of conscientious ob jectors in New Zealand, is the first inti mation the great majority of Austral ians have had as to the manner in which tnose who objected to war on grounds' of conscience have been dealt with by the authorities. After reading the report, I heard one reputable citizen say: 'Well, if the people knew this sort of thing was going on, no wonder they turned down conscription,' Actually, despite the ef forts of the authorities, word of the treat ment which had been meted out to con scientiouB objectors and to others by the military In England, once conscription had them all powerful, was passed round all over Australia. By means of circu lars, by canvassers and by other ways subterranean, the details of what had happened in England, and would inevit ably happen in Australia, if compulsory service were...

What We Are Paying For. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 5 April 1919

v What We Are Paying For. Mr. H. T. Braddon, appointed by the . Government as Trades Commissioner at a big screw and heavy expenses, was 'pre- vailed' upon recently to continue on hiB job a few months longer. He didn't want . .'? over-much 'prevailing' either, but like. the young lady who says 'No' seemed to ex pect the -question to be popped the second time. Latest cables inform ub that Mr. Braddon is doing splendid work in organ ising an International Lawn Tennis Tour nament. This is good news for the tax payers, and must fill every patriotic Aus-i . tralian with : undiluted Joy. Our Lawn Tennis Trade Commissioner is just the sort of man we appreciate, as he tempers the stern business principles of York Street with the refined 'culchaw' of Potta ,/?; Point. His efforts in this direction are ex pected to revolutionise the trade relations / between Yankeeland and Australia.

HE PIPER. . I am tone deaf. For .that blessing I Yhave sometimes had cause to thank the goods, t watch for the National Anthem, -.which I recognise by the loyal attitudes of those around' me. but all other tunes . ? are to me one and the same.

I had always distrusted the pipes; but I discovered from the first thunderous assault of that tremendous concert that the music which flows from the distended bag is soft and soothing when compared with its drum accompani ment. I am told that a full pipe band consists of six pipes, eight side-drums, and one big drum. From my recollection . of the performance I should say that the pro portion of instruments which momentarily destroyed my reason leaned much more than that to the side of drum. . Drum! I...

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER PUBLIC LIBRARY OF N.S.W. Corner Bent and Macquarie streets. GRADUATED INCOME TAX. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 5 April 1919

[?] ' PUBLIC LIBRARY OF N.S.W. Corner Bent and Macquarie streets.' -? GRADUATED INCOME TAX. # -lYoin the time of its first introduction % the taxable public has expressed very |-- strong objections to the income tax as a £ permanent tax. The principal grounds of ;i objection are, first, that it subjects the ? private concerns of the individual to ah v undesirable publicity, at the same time ;! encouraging fraud; and, second, tbat it ?i.' has' not been, and never ?will be, carried ,.?* .out in an equitable fashion. A solution offered for the first draw ™ liack Is a 'stoppage-at-source' collection ?????'.-'of the tax, that is, that it should be de ; ducted from the salary interest on bonds, dividends, etc., due to the payer. This .- would obviate the necessity for a finan ; cial statement by an individual, and in so far would avoid publicity, but it does not reach every source of income, and in practice it must be combined with some statement of income.

ROUND THE SHOWS WHERE ARE THE FOREIGN FILMS? [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 5 April 1919

1 ROUND THE SHOWS ft II II *? . (By JANE ~SIDDONS ) WHERE AfiE THE FOREIGN FILMS? Every time,. I see an American version of some famous story I want to know what has become of the foreign films, and If we are ever going to have any again. We all remember the beautiful Cines films and Pathe's big Paris pictures of some years ago. We want them badly now. America has had the worldmon opoly all too long; and it is to be hoped the artistic foreign films will reign again now that the war is over, and Italians and Frenchmen can think of something else besides bullets. You get the- correct story if a foreign company picture some famous book like 'Les Miserables' or 'Quo Vadis.' But recall some of the American perpetrations — 'The Tale of Two Cities,'vVFedora,' 'Cleopatra,' 'Les Miserables,' to say nothing, of modern novels like 'Stella Marls' and 'Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm.' The American scenario writer is the most impossible pro duction of his age. His impertinence and the liberties he ta...

ASTHMA! To bo candid, there Is no definitely known cure fur asthma. The most that can honestly be promised is something that wilt facilitate breathing and afford relief from the distressing paroxysms which, if unchecked, so completely exhaust the patient - from time to time. Opiates, though often used for this purpose, ultimately do more harm than good, as the dose has to be continually Increased till, sooner or later, the opium habit — a worse affliction than asthma itself— Is often crested. Most gratifying relief from asthma may be obtained from the use of Heenzo (registered name for Hean's Essence), which has the added advantage of exercising no ill after-effects. That Is much to lie thankful for. THE EXPERIENCE OF USERS LIEUTENANT A. MoASKILX., late 3rd Battalion, A.l.F.

The "Snooze" Wants More Fight [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 5 April 1919

The 'Snooze' Wants More Fight Sydney 'Evening News' of the 27th March coolly proposes . the 'Conquest of Germany'* and the armed occupation and government of the 'entire country by the Allies. It states that if the German Govern ment rejects the terms of the Peace Con ference this would be the best thing- that could happen for the Allies, as President Wilson's ^14 points would all go by the board, and the Allies could do wJiat they darned well liked and collect their full war costs. Isn't it about time that the wiiters of such' articles were charged ;with criminal lunacy or, at any rate, supplied with a caretaker? The late savage conflict was said to be 'a war to end war,' and with this pious aspiration the 'News' cordially agreed, and now it is inclined to undertake ano ther and almost endless war for the pur pose of collecting the costs of the last one. I almost owe your readers an apology for taking notice of such mental imbe cility. PLEBS.
