HOLDSWORTHY CAMP. ANOTHER MEDICAL SCANDAL [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror of Australia — 23 October 1915
? H0LDSW0R1HY CAMP. ANOTHER MEDICAL SCAHDAL (Special to 'The. Mirror.') Judging by reports which have reached us tbc couditioiiB obtaining at HoldswoHhy Camp in many respoets are profoundly un satisfactory, and this is specially trno of the medical organisation. .The exposure with regard to Liverpool Camp does not seem to have had its full effect on the authorities. A case has come under our notice which, if typical of the state of affaire generally, constitutes a grave public scandal. It re veals the management as inefficient, doctors as neglectful, and the provision of food as '. altogether inadequate. Last week a private was stricken with influenza. ' He had been fighting to- keep on his feet for several, days, and in the end collapsed while on parade. . The lieutenant1 in charge of his company ordered his removal to the hospital, where he was admitted. That was on the Tuesday. No medical officer saw him that day, but tho sergeant — 'good, kind fellow,' ho is described — came alo...

THE MIRROR OF LABOR. (By P.L.L.) DAY 8ITTING8. The first plank of Labor's fighting | platform in N.S.W. contains a clause that Parliament shall Bit from 10.30 a.m. W( 6 p.m. The manner in which Labor . members will fight for their fighting platform was revealed during tho week, when a motion by Mr. Jubez Wright for day sittings In Parliament, In the terms of the Labor Platform, was rejected by 37 votes to' 18. . Only four minutes remained for private members' business when Mr. Wright brought on his motion, but ho said, all that was needed in that time, and, con cluding, added: 'I am addressing myself to this question now to empty benches, though the motion I am moving has been agreed to by a conference of. the Labor representatives.

AUSTRALIAN AND BRITISH GOODS ARE BETTER THAN GERMAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror of Australia — 23 October 1915
AUSTRALIAN AND BRITISH GOODS ARE BETTER THAN GERMAN. (Special to ' The Mirror.') The following table is a practical attempt to indicate plainly to the* public and to wholesale and retail traders that the exact equivalent of German or Aus trian goods (made, owned, or controlled, wholly or substantially, in an enemy country) can be obtained from Australian or British manufacturers. In most cases the latte.- produce articles of much better quality and In many cases much cheaper than their foreign competitors. Many people imagine that there is some special value attaching to such names at 'Aspirin,' 'Formamlnt,' etc This is not tho case. They are merely' German trade marks in respect of well-known cnemical compounds, and do not involve any secret process or formula. As a matter of fact, they are made equally well, or better by Australian or British firms. This list should be »,-'l out and preserved, so that when ordering or purchasing articles no assistance . y be given to enemy subject...

WANTED: THE TRUTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror of Australia — 23 October 1915
\ WANTED: THE TRUTH. The people ot' Australia desire to know the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth with regard to the situation in Gallipoli.' We are not children to be affrighted or cowards ? to be abashed because things are not and have not gone well in the Dardanelles. Australia entered upon her part in this war with her whole heart, and she is not going to relax her efforts because one phase of the struggle, however important, has failed or has not realised all the anticipations 'of the Government and its advisers. ? We demand to know the truth, first and foremost, because it is our right to know it. That does not mean that we .wish to lift the veil from tho secrets of military strategy or .to lay bare information with re gard to results, movements, or future intentions which may impede the progress of the campaign and give valuable information to the enemy. But tfle'Xgreat sacrifice's- made -hi blood and treasure by' the people of the Commonwealth give to us at ...

Greater Sydney. , The Greater Sydney Bill may mean a lot . . or very little.

OUR HUNS. SERIOUS RISKS SHOULD BE AVOIDED. FUBTHER FLAGRANT OASES. (Special to 'The Mirror.') . There continues to be a good deal of dis cussion with regard to the freedom that is being allowed to Germans and naturalised Germans holding important public and com mercial positions, in the ? community. Men like Herr Oscar Plate, of the Nord-Deutseher Lloyd and Lohmann and - Co'., or Herr de Haas, the German commercial agent, or Herr Peick, of the German-Australian Line, and many other Germans and naturalised.. Ger mans at liberty in this country could, if they chose to do- so, as some of their compatriots have done, do this country incalculable in-' jury by reason of their unique associations with and acquaintance of the commerce and public bodies of Australia. Ought they to be given the opportunity! Is it possible to say iri this titanic struggle who may be trusted and who may not!

LAUTERBACH OF THE EMDEN. HOW HE ESCAPED FEOM SINGAPORE. (Special to 'The Mirror.') Despite official denials that the Germans in Singapore had anything to do with the recent riot and: bloodshed there, details that are gradually filtering through go to prove that the whole' dastardly plot was of Hunnish origin. ' ' Oh© of tfie objects was to release the members of .the crow of the cruiser. 'Emden/'.who were interned in Singapore after their capture by H.JI-A.S. 'Sydney.' At least two — Lieutenant - Cominandar Lautcrbaeb, the second in command, and a junior officer made their escape. From Singapore they went to the Dutch East. Indies disguised as seamen, Then they succeeded in reaching the Philippines, and separated . qt Manila. . Lauterbach was next -traced 'to China, the authorities tracking him as far as Shanghai. But again he escaped, even the British officers who boarded the 'Mongolia' failing to identify him, so cleverly was he disguised ob a Swede. ' He was examined, but his'pap...
