Gunner Foll's Test. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 13 April 1917

Gunner Foil's Test. i The huge public meeting at the Exhibi tion Hall on Tuesday night was a test of the regard in which the returned sol diers are held by the people of Brisbane. Gunner H. Spencer Foil, the soldiers' candidate for the Senate, was billed to second the motion for a vote of thanks to Mr. Hughes, and both Gunner Foil and I his supporters realised that a good deal rested on the showing he made before such a huge audience. Our candidate acquitted himself with distinction, though the hour was so late that he was com pelled to curtail his remarks. He paid , a tribute to the Prime Minister, who, he said, had, in refusing to obey the dicta tion of the junta, emerged a greater and nobler statesman than he ever was be fore. He appealed to the electors not to split the Nationalist vote, but to give their suffrages to the endorsed National candidates, Messrs. Crawford, Reid, and himself. They all knew the calibre of Mr. Mat Reid, w,ho had a long experience of politics, and Mr. C...

We should like to know: [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 13 April 1917

We should like to know : Whether the Tudor party will impress, on their followers the necessity for giv ing a fair and impartial hearing to their opponents during the present campaign? Whether there is to be any splitting of votes on the Nationalist side? . Whether the Nationalists fully realise that on this election depends the future progress and prosperity of Australia, and whether, if they do realise it, they are? seriously considering the vital necessity for absolute solidarity?. Whether those who are opposed to autocratic rule by irresponsible bodies outside Parliament have fully considered the value of personal canvass in such an election as this? Whether the number of recruits se- , cured in Australia during March is suffi cient to reinforce our armies at the front during the tremendous conflict now ragg ing in the West?

Mr. Hughes and Conscription. PRIME MINISTER REFUTES MISREPRESENTATION. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 13 April 1917

Mr. Hnghes and Conscription. PRIME MINISTER REFUTES MIS REPRESENTATION. The Prime Minister last week issued an autographed letter for ' circulation throughout Australia which reads as fol lows: — TO THE ELECTORS OF THE COMMONWEALTH. As gross misrepresentations are being made by the agents of the Caucus party as : to the policy of ttfe Government towards Labor legislation, and particularly as to the civil and military pensions and the maternity allowance, I desire to set out our policy in words so plain as to leave no room for misunderstanding, and to make all attempts at misrepresentation futile. The Government will not in the ' forthcoming Parliament reduce old age or invalid pensions, maternity allowances, or soldiers' pensions. It will not destroy one stone in the temple of Labor legislation, but, by sympathetic administration, it will do everything within its power to protect the interests, and promote the welfare, of the old, the unfortunate, the widow, and the fatherless, the ...

Taxing Soldiers' Pensions. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 13 April 1917

Taxing Soldiers' Pensions. It may not generally be known that the pensions N allowed by the Commonwealth Government to a returned soldier is liable to income tax, but such is the case. The men who fought for Australia and the Empire are to be penalised to a far greater extent than the monied men who put their wealth into Commonwealth War Loan at 4 h' per cent and are exempt from paying income tax on that wealth. The question of income tax in regard to soldiers' pensions was evidently over looked by the late Federal Government, which professed to be so kindly disposed toward the men who answered the call of King and country. Billjim, then, is to pay income tax on a paltry pension which a grateful Australian public awards him as a slight recompense for the incapacity ?sustained while going about his country's work. 'Oh, it's Tommy this, and Tommy that — get out, you dirty brute; But it's thin red line of heroes when the guns begin to shoot.' Kipling knew what he was talking about when...

John Adamson as Independent [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 13 April 1917

John Adamson as independent Spite of the fact that John Adamson was defeated in the plebiscite held by the anti-socialist bodies,, he has decided to run as an independent candidate, and has, by his action, shown that he has made up his mind to contest, by hook or 1 Dy crooK, tne senate seats, it win oe, however, interesting to know under what banner he will run, as he continually states that he is a personal friend of the State Premier, and is as much a Labor man as ever. It looks very much as though he is running as an independent Socialist. He cannot be regarded as a Nationalist candidate, as the three selec ted Nationalists are Messrs. Crawford, Foil, and Reid. Mr. Adamson states that his candidature has been endorsed by the Prime Minister, but that does not affect the selection, as the persons who choose the candidates are the electors, and not members of Parliament. Mr. Hughes has not yet won his own seat, and al though. he remains the Prime Minister until defeated, he has no a...

An Imperial Board of Trade. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 13 April 1917

An Imperial Board of Trade. With the Economic Conference in Paris began the arming of the nations of the Entente for the commercial, war with which the Teutonic Alliance openly threatens us on the day that peace is declared. For that we shall not be caught as unprepared as our treacherous enemies found us in 1914. The electric energy of Mr. Hughes, no less than the magnificent rally of the self-governing daughter-nations and the colonies of the Empire, has awakened even the Imperial Government to a realisation of the im mediate need, as well as of the magnifi cent opportunity, of at once uniting the free peoples of the Empire into a power ful Imperial Council and' exploiting the amazing resources of the Empire for our common advantage. It was with genuine gratification that the whole of the Em I pire received the British Prime Minis | ter's announcement of an Imperial Con | ference to consider the ' trade policy of ; the Empire in the light of the resolutions | passed in Paris, and ...

John Adamson and the Preferential Vote. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 13 April 1917

John Adamson and the Pref erential Vote. In the present election campaign the Returned Soldiers and Patriots' National Political League stands four-square with the Win-the-War party. For the present it sinks its individual non-party platform, believing that the sole energy of the next Commonwealth Parliament must be directed to winning of the war, the re patriation of soldiers, the organisation of our trade, labor, commerce, and produc tion for the benefit of Australia in her connection with the Empire .and her Allies, and the initiation and further ance of an effective after-the-war policy. At the same time it is impossible to shut our eyes to passing events, and in the candidature of Mr. John Adamson as a vote-splitter in the Senate election we find opportunity for argument in favor of one of our League's planks — the preferential vote. With the compulsory preferential vote in vogue to-day it would not matter a jot if half a dozen or more candidates stood in the National interest ...

Points from Mr. Hughes' Speech. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 13 April 1917

Points from Mr. Hughes' Speech. The National party was composed of men of widely different political opinions — men who since the war had subordi nated party to country. » » * * The same thing marked the Govern ments of Britain and France. These men, licked by the fiery flames of the furnace of war, had forgotten all save that they were Britons and Frenchmen. ♦ * ♦ It was not for them, as Nationalists, to apologise or excuse themselves that this Government and this party was com posed of men who were formerly in dif ferent party camps; it was for their op ponents to explain how in the hour of their country's danger and deadly peril they were still babbling of party — they were fiddling while Rome burned. * « * * They were for the Empire because the Empire was for them. They were for the Empire for the same reason that a man was for his .union — because united we stand, divided we fall. The day on which the Empire failed — that day rung the knell of Australia. If the Allies lost the ...
