Vox Populi! Nr. Ryan's Weak Excuse! Government "Considering" why the People Voted "No!" [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 11 May 1917

Vox Populi ! Mr. Ryan's Weak Excuse! Government 'Considering' why the People Voted 'No!' Seeing the stress that he had always put on the securing of an expression of the 'voice of the people' onHhe question of the proposed abolition of the Legis lative Council, there was possibly no more disappointed man in Queensland than the Premier (Mr. T. J. Ryan) when the numbers on this all-important issue went up. In the argument before the Pull Court Mr. Ryan and his friends had invariably proceeded on the assumption that if a vote were taken it would be bound to favor abolition. How far astray was such an assumption is indicated by the figures to-day. Mr. Ryan was in the Supreme Court for the greater part of yesterday as one of the counsel engaged in the now-famous Mooraberrie - cattle seizure case. When asked by a 'Courier'' representative for a pronouncement on the result of the referendum, the Premier courteously consented to make a state ment. His excuse, however, to the effect that the...

Voting Ticket Wanted. PREVENTING DUPLICATE VOTING. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 11 May 1917

Voting Ticket Wanted. PREVENTING DUPLICATE VOTING. One of the most urgent requirements ixi Australian electoral matters is a vot ing ticket for electors. In the past it has been noticed that numbers of elec-. tors have voted twice, and sometimes three times, for the same candidate. It is easy to duplicate or triplicate a vote where there are five or six booths in the one subdivision. It is at well-known fact that electors have used two and three booths for the purpose of exercising their right to vote. This duplication of votes has often resulted in a win for a parti cular candidate when the real voice of the people was in favor of his opponent. This is said to be the fact in the last Federal elections, when hundreds of Labor voters were alleged to have voted for a certain Labor candidate. The majority of people would ask 'What about the prosecutions which would cer tainly follow the discovery of such a swindle?' and the an'swer was invariably 'Well, if the Labor party got in, they ...

NON-VOTERS—A SCANDAL. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 11 May 1917

NON-VOTERS— A SCANDAL. Proof that th,e electoral rolls were in a deplorable state during the election is provided by the number of cases in which electors who applied for enrolment were not on the roll on polling day. In one instance a family who had lived in Too wong for twenty years, and had voted at every election during that period, had ineir names strucK on me rons. in an other instance the whole of a family of long standing in a Brisbane suburb were struck off. In almost' every case that has come under our notice the people had received the cards notifying them of their enrolment, and were legally entitled to vote. Why their names should have been left off the rolls is one of those questions which the National party would give a deal to be able to answer. In order that ac. good case may be made out against those responsible for such an underhand method of preventing people from voting, we invite every elector who did not vote, but who received an enrof ment notification card, ...

LONG SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 11 May 1917

LONG SERVICE. In this issue we publish a photo of Pte. O. W. Anderson, 1st of the 49th Batt., who has been on active service since the out break of war. In September, 1914, he went with the New Guinea Expeditionary Force to Rabaul, and afterwards joined the A.I.F., with which he has seen service in France since early last year. He was wounded during the Somme offensive last year. He is a native of Chapters Towers. ? *?' - Fair Play: The 'Standard' had the following to say about the defeat of the Ryan Government on the Uppah House question:—- 'In the few hours left after the High Court's decision was known it was very difficult to convince many elec tors that the High Court's decision had removed the probability of the Council 'having the law on them' if they pre- *' sumed to vote for the abolition. In sucli circumstances thousands of people are easily alarmed. The results of the poll reflect largely this condition of mind and the aggravatingly unfair wording of the question as put o...

We should like to know : How Mr. T. J. Ryan felt on Sunday morning after reading of the huge majority against his proposition to abolish the Upper House? Whether the retiring member for Oxley will be able to pull up the 1200 votes he is in arrears? Whether there was ever a Federal election in which so much abuse was levelled at a party by their opponents? Whether the 'Daily Standard' expected by its cowardly attack on Gunner Foil to influence any or the -electors against him ? Whether the votes of the soldiers at the f ront will make 'much difference to the results already published? What Mr. Finlayson thought of the great fight put up by his opponent, Lieut Col. Plane? What difference Mr. Adamson's candi dature made to the Senate voting? When the soldiers' votes will be avail able?

The Elections. Huge Nationalist Triumph. Senate Candidates Score Everywhere. A Surprise in Queensland. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 11 May 1917

The Elections. Huge Nationalist Triumph. Senate Candidates Score Everywhere. A Surprise in Queensland. On Friday afternoon last the weather ?was doubtful, and it seemed as if rain would fall on the morrow and prevent hundreds of electors from recording / their votes. The morning of Saturday, ihowever, broke fine and clear, and the day was an ideal one for an election. . At 8 a.m. the booths were open to the public, and the business of voting was soon in full swing. Before 10 a.m. it was evi dent that the poll was to be exception ally heavy, as crowds of people thronged the .booths, asking numerous questions and worrying the presiding officers out 6f their senses. The fact that there were three separate issues before the Queenisland public occasioned a lot of confusion. In the Brisbane division, for instance, hundreds of Valley electors for the Federal division, after voting at Ivory-street, were directed' by the presid ing officers to the referendum polling booth at the Brook-street...

The Junta and Recruiting. GIRLS' PROCESSION REFUSED. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 11 May 1917

The Junta and Recruiting. GIRLS' PROCESSION REFUSED. About a week prior to polling day the members of the Australian Women's Ser vice Corps decided to apply for permis sion to hold a recruiting procession on Eight Hour . Day. A large number of young women took up the movement enthusiastically, and were taken in hand by Mrs. L. Crampton Andrews, of the Returned Soldiers and Patriots' National Political League. Mr. E. F. Hanman, of the State . Recruiting Committee, made application to the Police Department for permission to hold the procession, and the permission was readily given. The Police Department, however, reckoned without the Trades Hall, which point blank refused permission when Mr. Han man applied. When the Police Depart ment heard that the Trades Hall had refused permission they fell into line and told the girls that they could not march. The procession probably would have re sulted in a good haul of recruits, as the girls were to march with rifles, which they would invite ...

MAILS FOR THE A.I.F. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 11 May 1917

MAILS FOR THE A.I.F. The next packet and paper mail for the Expeditionary Forces abroad will close next Saturday at 8 p.m., and the letter mail next Sunday at 8 p.m. Ryan, prior to the referendum vote on the proposal to abolish the Legislative Council, was always gassing about the 'voice of the people,' which, he asserted, must prevail. Now that the voice of the people has . prevailed, but not in his favor, he is squealing about the lack of time between the decision of the High Court and the taking of the poll. He is full of weak excuses for his overwhelm ing defeat. If he had won there would have been no more swelled head in Queensland than his, and his fight on the legality question would have been all the keener. Now that the people have decided, with no uncertain voice, that the Upper House is necessary for sane, honest government, Mr. Ryan would be well advised to leave well enough alone and waive the question of legality. The referendum, which, the well-licked junta party now ...

The Defeated Senators. AN EXTRAORDINARY POSITION. SEATS NOT VACANT TILL JUNE 30. MELBOURNE, May 8. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 11 May 1917

Tbe Defeated Senators. AN EXTRAORDINARY POSITION. SEATS NOT VACANT TILL JUNE 30. I MELBOURNE, May 8. A most extraordinary position has !' arisen with regard to the election of new Senators. Under the Constitution the term of the old Senators expires on June 30, and until that date their seats are not actually vacant. According to the Chief Electoral Officer (Mr. Oldham), to wnom the matter was referred to-day, the old Senators, although defeated at the recent poll, are entitled to take part in any business of the Senate brought forward at a meeting held prior to June 30. They could, if they chose, attend when Parliament meets early ? in June, and obstruct the passage of Supply. It 0s inconceivable,, of course, that any Senator would have the temerity to do/ such a thing. The salary of the defeated Senators contihues until June 20, when the new Senators will take their seats. Fred R. Brown, 331 Queen-st, Bris.

The Voice of the People. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 11 May 1917

The Voice of the People. Prior to Saturday last there were thou sands of people in Australia who were dubious about the chance of the National ists. They imagined that the Hughes party would win the majority of the seats in the Representatives, but that the Senate would be a Labor preserve. The polling on Saturday was heavier than is usual even in a Federal election, and the increase came from the National ists, as the results posted on Sunday proved. The election, on the figures pub lished, has resulted in a sweeping National victory. It has proved beyond a shadow of doubt that 'the voice of the people' is not in favor of disloyalty, I.W.W.-ism, and Fihellyism. In every | State of the Commonwealth the popular i sentiment has been in favor of a National | Government, a Government which will subordinate everything — even the ques tion of tariff reform — to the winning of ! the war. In Tasmania, West Australia, ! *iSouth Australia, Victoria, New -South Wales, and Queensland — that is,...
