THE LAST POST. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 4 May 1917

THE LAST POST. And always as one thinks of that show week, 1917, one's memory will go back to the evening of the great and glorious 25th, the saddest and proudest day in Australian history. Never through all that week of work and its incidental gaiety was the object once forgotten, and on the day of all days for all loyal Aus tralians a sadness and a heaviness hung over the picturesque old town which has given so freely of its bright young man- ( hood. Business was suspended during the hours of service, and there was a march past of returned soldiers. The services were most impressive and beau tiful, and very largely attended; but per haps the most impressive moment of all was when, in the midst of the laughter and gaiety surrounding the Allies' City, on the stroke of nine, the first notes of the Last Post rang out -^rSm the post office tower. It was a rather wonderful scene — the old post office building, thq quaint old tree-bordered streets, upon which the electric lights flickere...

Show Week in War-time. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 4 May 1917

Show Week in War-time. ? Toowoomba show week must assuredly have established a record in the district for war work. One might walk round the ring, search the pavilions, the pad docks, and the stand without meeting a friend except a white-clad girl in Red Cross cap hurrying across from the tea house to 'ring up for more sandwiches,' or to 'see about more milk,' or perhaps the mayoress searching in the pavilion for Mrs. Fairfax to ask her about a cake,' or iMrs. Mayne, always with a returned soldier at her elbow, bent on some Red Cross business. Mrs. R. C. Ramsay had not a minute to spare from her tea-house. Mrs. Gerard Boyce spent the week directing the work of the Red Cross waitresses. :Miss Agnes Tolmie appeared to 'live' in a chair outside the tea-house selling tickets, for a new and very satisfactory way of paying was in I troduced. One might have luncheon for 2s 6d, and tea for Is. One bought a ticket for either from Miss Tolmie,- and on admission gave it to one's own par ticula...

"AR! CUT THEM OUT!" [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 4 May 1917

'AR! CUT THEM OUT!' Lieut.-Colonel Plane was the next speaker, and when referring in terms of honor to the memories of the deathless dead on Gallipoli a raucous voice ripped out above the din with a scoff, shouting 'Ar! Cut them out!'— From report of a Brisbane election meeting, April 19. 'Whom the gods love die young,' the saying runs. Ah, yes! Health, strength, and courage that leaps high Are dear to the immortals, hence our sons and brothers die. Yea, but the gods choose wisely! They have willed That their bright fields and cities of the blest, Beyond the bourne, shall ever more be filled By old Earth's best. And thus it is that these were reft away, Australia's cherished lads, so brave and bold, Who in far lands have perished ere their day— Ah, hearts of gold! But they have fallen for country and for King; They die not, neither are their deeds forgot; ? To lips they kissed, and left, their names shall spring, And perish not. Their lives, laid down, shall beacon our dim iives, Th...

TO-MORROW! [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 4 May 1917

TO-MORROW! Who will vote for the National party? — The returned soldiers, the soldiers at the front, the loyal men and women who believe in 'Empire and Australia first, and who will sacrifice everything that the nation may be free. Who will vote for the Junta party? — The disloyalists, the men who don't care whether they are under the British flag or the German, the things who sneer at the memory of the dead, the I.W..W., the German element, or most of it, the party before-nation crowd, and the hoodlums who deny the right of free speech to our returned soldier's candidate. Which will YOU vote for — the side which has the loyalists behind it or the party which relies on the votesj of the disloyalists to pull them through?

GOLDEN CASKET ART UNION. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 4 May 1917

. GOLDEN CASKET ART UNION. May is the last month of the Golden Casket Art Union, run for the benefit of the Returned Soldiers' Repatriation Fund. The sale of tickets closes on the 31st of the present ' month. The committee guarantees to find a purchaser for each golden casket, and prize- winners' can rest assured that they will get full value. This is the biggest thing of its kind yet held in Queensland, and as it is for a great purpose, every man and woman with 5s to spare should not hesitate in investing it in a Golden Casket ticket. The 'Daily Standard' is great on mak ing discoveries. For instance, it has delved into the question of military pay for chaplains, and found that' (Lieut-Col., Plane was receiving £626 per annum up to February 28, 1915, and £400 a year after that. Of course, the 'Standard' knows perfectly well that the rates of pay were the same for every chaplain of Lieut-Col. Plane's rank, &nd that his pay was in keeping with the rates paid to other ranks.

Our Unquestionable Right. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 4 May 1917

Onr Unquestionable Right. The appeal which the Prime Minister and his Nationalists are to-day making to the people of Australia is one which no person in whom the fire of patriotism runs strongly can resist. It is an appeal to the electors to hand over the reins of Government to men whose great mission is to assist the Allies in bringing this awful war to a speedy and successful conclusion. In their minds the winning of the war transcends all other considera tions, as, indeed, it should do, for what would happen to the wonderful demo , cratic measures of the Trades Hall if the Allies lost the war? To win the war is, therefore, the first consideration, and . it is by helping to win the war that the Nationalist party will devise new ? schemes for the reinforcing of our armies at the front, and for so organising our internal resources that the burden of war will fall more lightly on the shoul ders of the people. The Prime Minister has given his solemn pledge, not to intro duce conscrip...

Gunner Foll. A FORCEFUL SPEAKER. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 4 May 1917

Gunner Foil. ___ \ A FORCEFUL SPEAKER. Gunner H. S. Foil, the Senate candidate who is standing in the interests of the returned soldiers, has developed into a forceful public speaker. Those who knew his ability in handling a committee were rather anxious about his ability to im press an audience, for a good committee man is not always even a decent public speaker. However, he has overcome that rather boyish hesitancy which characterised his earlier speeches, and has developed a confident, easy platform manner which, if he is fortunate enough to be returned, will carry him far in the -Federal Parliament. He spoke at three meetings on Tuesday night, the last at Windsor in support of the Lilley candi date, Mr. Mackay. The aspirant for Senate honors opened his speech by remarking that it was a pity that the nation should be to-day faced with a general election. In every other part of the Empire, and in every Allied country, they had sunk their party differences and were to-day standing ...

The Great Issue. The Woman's Part. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 4 May 1917

The Great Issue. ? ? — — The Woman's Part. In this great crisis which is before us, the result of which, for good or ill, for weal or for woe, will be decided tomor row. We seem altogether to lose sight of the word politics. The issues at stake appear to be so much greater and wider, and altogether so far beyond our former conception of its meaning that now, on the eye of the most momentous election in the history of Australia^ we feel that the situation has resolved itself into a great battle between two giant forces, and that upon the triumph of the good or the evil depends the honor or dishonor of the country which we love; that we each, by the individual stand we take, must range ourselves for all time upon one side or' the other; that we must stand shoulder to shoulder with those who will uphold our country's loyalty a,nd honor or throw in our lot with those to whom the words have no, meaning, who, so far as our obligations to the great nation to which we belong are .con cerned...

SECTARIANISM. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 4 May 1917

SECTARIANISM. ?Queensland and Victoria have of late been flooded with printed matter, author ised by one Critchley Parker, calculated to stir up strife between the Protestants and Roman Catholics. The matter re cently was referred to Mr. Hughes, who immediately and strongly repudiated it. That the Nationalists condone such methods of electioneering is hard to be lieve, yet the pernicious stuff is allowed to circulate by the authority of a man whom the Caucus party says is a close iriena or me rrime minister, jiivery 1 Nationalist candidate with whom the writer has come in contact is firm in the belief that no Nationalist organisation would be so mad as to stir up sectarian feeling when every -vote is essential to success of the National cause. It is not the work of the Nationalists — of that we are certain — and even if it were, the Returned Soldiers and Patriots' National Political League, which is absolutely non sectarian, would be the first to condemn ' such electioneering tricks...

THE POLICE! OH, WHERE WERE THEY? [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 4 May 1917

THE POLICE! OH, WHERE WERE THEY? The masterly inactivity of those mem bers of the force who attend Lieut.-Col. Plane's meetings compares very unfavor ably with the excess of zeal shown by a John Hop of my acquaintance who, when ever he heard of the commission of a crime in his district, used to ask, 'And where was I?' He wanted to be in everything, but the men sent by the Com missioner to keep order at our candi date's meetings seem to want nothing but a quiet life. Certainly they never do anything to check the howling gang of organised obstructionists. We know that unless the occasion warrants it the police cannot read the Riot Act, and they are generally too weak numerically to clear a hall of the noisy section. What we ask is, however, that the police should single out the ringleaders and promptly take their names and addresses with a view to prosecution. If they are not willing to do even that — and all the evi dence points to that conclusion — then they are not doing their duty...
