AMBULANCE FRIDAY COLLECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 13 October 1916

AMBULANCE FRIDAY COLLECTIONS. The annual 'Tag Day ' for the Q.A.T.B. will take place throughout the city and suburbs to-day. The recepits from the ' Ambulance Friday ' collections constitute one of the largest sources of income derived by the brigade and owing to the many other calls for patriotic and other purposes being made upon the general public, the ordinary revenue of the /Brigade has suffered during the past twelve months. The committee hopes, therefore, that the public will respond freely to day to the call for financial assist ance. A larger number of lady collec tors than usual will be engaged this year, and the tags will be sold for Is. each, orvas much more as the donor may be willing to . pay. ♦♦♦

THE RETURNED SOLDIER. HIS INFLUENCE IN POLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 13 October 1916

THE RETURNED SOLDIER. HIS INFLUENCE IN POLITICS. 'Referring to the general influence of the war on armies, he states that fighters from the trenches, voting by post, will demand a reward consisting of a changed England, fashioned ac cording to their views. They will dominate the elections for a quarter of a century.' The above is an opinion by Lord ?Northcliffe, who is one, of the keenest supporters in Britain, for the' returned soldier. Whether the men who have done their duty to the State will dominate the elections in Britain remains to be seen. We cannot afford to dogmatise on' such a question until the end of the war; but that the returned soldier will demand a larger share in the government of the country than was hitherto his lot, is practically certain. There are thousands of clever men in the Empire's armies to-day ; men whose knowledge is now infinitely greater than that of party politicians who ?it in ease and luxury at home. These men will not be content to hide their li...

RESIDENTIAL CLUB. Association Wants Monopoly. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 13 October 1916

^RESIDENTIAL CLUB. Association Wants Monopoly. At a meeting of the ladies committee of the Residential Club for returned sailors and soldiers yesterday, reference was made to the rule,r ' returned sol diers and sailors who' were members of the returned Sailors and Soldiers' Imperial League of Australia would be digible for membership of the Club.' Considerable discussion followed, and it was asked if any returned soldier could become a member. Sergeant Collins said they must be members of the Returned Soldiers' Association. Miss Burns said that was all very well from the Returned Soldiers' Associ ation point of view ; but the idea in the minds of the ladies, who for med the committee was, that the club would be for the use of all returned ? soldiers. Reference was made to a paragraph in the ' National Leader,' that the money should be vested in public trustees, and the. club be made open to all returned soldiers. Sergeant Collins said that the Re turned Soldiers and Patriots' League...

Sir Edward Carson and Man Power [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 13 October 1916

- Sir Edward Carson and Man Power Sir Edward Carson, M.P, for Dublin University, writing to '' The Times,' last week, said : — Our mail power is the most serious ' question confronting the War Office. There are 650,000 men of military1' age in Ireland. Under 120,000 have enlisted. More men from Ulster are serving than from' the whole of the' remaining provinces. , - Britain will probably foe compelled ? to revise and extend the Military Service Act in the near future. Men *? are essential — whatever the cost. ; ' What will Australia and Canada say to a shirking Ireland, who refuses to hearken to the call of Irishmen in the - ' trenches ? r If Australia does not carry the Compulsory Service Referendum on u October 28th next, her people will have no kick coming against Ireland, for the people will have demonstrated their, unwillingness to send reinforcements to their own flesh and blood.

VOLUNTEER ARMY. A Dangerous Proceeding. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 13 October 1916

VOLUNTEER ARMY. A Dangerous Proceeding. The anti-conscriptionists evidently do. not realise that when they set out ?deliberately to organise a force to protect their speakers against interrup tion by soldiers and others who are opposed to their principles, they are playing with fire. _ This is how Mulvey, the leading light . of the cold-footed brigade, put it' to a meeting of, persons, which the ingenuous ' Daily Standard '.described £S ' Labor's Volunteer Army.' The so-called ..army resolved, — 'That this meeting pledges itself to maintain the right of public meetings, and the freedom of speech, from, interference on the part of any individual, and further declaring its intention to sup port, the civil authority in the preser vation of peac^.' ' v Following on a leading article in the ' Daily Standard ' of Monday last, this resolution* lends colour to the -belief that the extreme section of the anti-conscriptionists are prepared to repeat the action of Sunday last. For the shooting...

RIOTING AT MEETINGS. Anti-Conscriptionists' Position. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 13 October 1916

RIOTING AT MEETINGS. Anti-Conscriptionists' Position. ' I A great deal has been said of late i on the conduct of soldiers at public meetings. This has been grossly ex aggerated by the anti-conscription, socialist, revolutionary section of the community. As far as their own dastardly methods of interference, up and down, the country, are concerned, let us look for a moment at the actions of the cold-footed anti-conscription mobs at the various referenda meetings. In the Brisbane Domain, we find that cowardly curs come to the meeting secretly armed, and shoot at a man who is prepared to fight for his country. If these cowardly curs would only grasp a rifle and fire at the Huns, who are a menace to the liberties of the world, Australia included, then* indeed , would we believe that they were men'' of manly calibre. Let us for a moment look at the dastardly treatment meted out to the ex-Minister for Railways, Mr. John Adamson, at Rockhampton. A howling, cowardly mob endangered his life,...

COMPULSORY SERVICE v. VOLUNTARISM. VOLUNTARY SYSTEM UNDEMOCRATIC. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 13 October 1916

COMPULSORY SERVICE v* VOLUNTARISM. VOLUNTARY SYSTEM UNDEMOCRATIC. Many grave accusations, have- been , tiurled at the Recruiting Committees of the Commonwealth. They have been charged by the anticonscription ists with rank incompetence as, organising bodies, and with having ' perpetuated that state of muddle in military administration, which seems to be a heritage. of the British people, whether in the Motherland pi the Dominions. Those: who. oppose com pulsory military service, go so far as to claim that the ; voluntary system would have proved an unqualified success, had the -responsible authorities not bungled so badly. In short, the , alleged chaos whi ch prevailed during, the days of . voluntary ' enlistment is used ' by the cold feet brigade, as a ?convincing argument against the neces sity for enforcing military service. ? While it is not the intention of this paper to go into the' merits or demerits of the varipus recruiting, organisations, it is as well to point out to the ...

WHEN WAR BREAKS OUT. The French Methods. "Men Are Not Consulted." [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 13 October 1916

WHEN WAR BREAKS OUT. The French Methods. 'Men Are Not Consulted.' Mr. Hombrey, vic.e-Consul for France in Melbourne, stated last week, that every Frenchman owes military service to his country between the ages of 19 .and 48 years. ' No matter if we are required in France or abroad,' he said, 'when. -war breaks out, and quick action is essential, the Government will not consult men as to when and where they would be willing to fight. That is entirely left to the judgment and the decision of the military and the ^Government.' ♦♦♦

THE PROCLAMATION. IS IT VALID ? TOOWOOMBA SOLICITOR'S OPINION. , A great deal of interest was centred in the calling up of the persons 'liable to report themselves for service at the Toowoomba drill sheds on Wednes day, of last week. Among the many that presented themselves was Mr. F. T. Brenrian, the well-known solicitor. Mn. Brennan attended, and was passed by the doctor as medically fit, ihe_doctor stating that Mr. Brennan was one of the best physically-built men that hehad had be fore him Mr. Brennan, who is an anti-conscrip tionist, among other objections, says, 'That the proclamation calling up the citizens' forces, under the Common wealth Defence Act, 1903-15, is invalid, and, consequently, of no effect,' and on this objection, Mr. Brennan has applied for exemption.
