Land Settlement for Returned Soldiers. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 11 May 1917

Land Settlement for Returned Soldiers. The land settlement scheme adopted by the State Government in connection with the repatriation of returned soldiers has proved beyond a doubt that the majo rity of men returning from the front are not fitted for the strenuous work of building up a farm of any size. It is true that the men who are now at Beer burrum are in the main satisfied with v their lot, but they are all under the cap able supervision of Mr. Rose, an expert in that particular branch of farming. There are hundreds — aye, thousands — of returned soldiers who would do well on i small holdings in rich country, but the task of pioneering the wretched country which the Government proposes to hand over to them will be heart-breaking to the bulk of men suffering from the effects of the war, and in a great many cases they will, after a couple of years' hard striving, give up the ghost. The ques tion of tenure is also very contentious, and we are open to wager that if the Government ...

The Way of the War. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 11 May 1917

The Way of the War. Never since the dawn of the world's history has there been such a battle as that now raging on the Western front between the British armies and the Hun legions. The 'great slaughtering jobs of the Roman and Carthagenian wars, thfe sack of Jerusalem, the terrible battles of the Thirty Years' War, the battles of the Franco-Prussian War, all pale into insig nificance beside this earth-shaking clash of contending hosts.

WHY THE TRICOLOR? (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 11 May 1917

WHY THE TRICOLOR? (To the Editor.) Sir, — I was one of the spectators at the Eight Hour procession on Monday, and I never saw such a dejected lot of faces as those of the committee. There wds little enthusiasm, so far as I could see. The most remarkable part of the whole business was the ostentatious display of red, white, and blue ribbons. I wondered why the Trades Hall crowd, who are responsible for this procession, could bring themselves to use so much red, white, and blue, when they are avowedly against anything savoring of loyalty to the Empire whose flag is the glorious Union Jack, red, white, and blue. It would have been much more fitting had the horses and lorries been covered with flaring red blankets. — Yours, &c., 'TRICOLOR.' V ?

The Chaplains at Gallipoli. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 11 May 1917

The Chaplains at Gallipoli. (To the Editor.) Sir, — With reference to the cowardly attacks made by certain persons on the returned soldier candidates at the forth coming Federal elections, I should esteem it a favor if you would allow me, through the medium of your paper, to express the indignation and disgust experienced not only by the returned soldiers, but, X 'am sure, also by all decent-minded citi zens, irrespective of their political or religious upmiuua. I will deal firstly with the repeated attacks on Chaplain Lt.-Col. Plane. Some people seem to think that because he went to Gallipoli as a minister of religion he did not fa6e the same hardships and dangers which were faced by us all. I should like to point out that everyone who landed, whether combatant or non combatant, was face to face with death from the moment he landed until he left the Peninsula. I should also like to. point out that all our ministers of religion dis played the utmost bravery in the front line trenche...

The Monitions Marvels. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 11 May 1917

The Munitions Marvels. When the history of England's share in the war comes to be written in the perspective which time alone can give, the historian of the future will probably find that as much stress must be laid upon our achievements in. providing our huge armies with munitions as with the deeds of the armies themselves. As Lord Kitchener's armies came into being, it began to be more and more apparent that our arsenals were utterly incapable of producing an adequate supply of muni tions. The problem of supplying them bristled with difficulties; there was at first strong opposition from trades unions, which failed to realise the crying urgency of the situation, to the suspen sion of the rules regulating output, and other safeguards which Labor has pain fully built up for its protection against Capitalism; there was the shortage of machinery and plant; and there was a grave deficiency of skilled labor. Cer tain of the more obvious Labor difficul ties were alleviated by agreements ...

Mr. Ryan's Licking. TRIUMPH FOR THE COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 11 May 1917

Mr. Ryan's Licking; TRIUMPH FOR THE COUNCIL. Probably no Premier of Queensland or any other State ever suffered such. & signal defeat on a vital question than did Mr. Ryan on Saturday last. Mr. Ryan's excuse for wasting public funds on a referendum on the question of abol ishing the Legislative Council was that the people demanded a change. He was never tired of referring to 'the v voice of the people,' as though he was ,in the confidence of every elector of Queens land. The vote recorded on Saturday was probably the heaviest ever experi enced in this State, and it was an abso lute vindication of the right of the Legis lative Council to exist, as well as a smashing blow to the pretensions of the Trades Hall party. Mr. 'Ryan's excuse that the electors were confused because of the applications made to the courts and the quashing of the Full Court's in junction by the High Court will not hold water. The majority was so huge as to set all doubt on one side, and is a com plete ex...

Mr. Ryan's Christmas Greetings. A REPLY FROM THE TRENCHES. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 11 May 1917

Mr. Ryan's Christmas Greetings. A REPLY FROM THE TRENCHES. (To the Editor.) Sir— As Australians:* and Queens laaders who are doing our bit to uphold the prestige of the Empire to which we kave the privilege to belong, we take it as an assumption for the Premier of our State to send his Christmas greetings to Queensland troops through Army Orders.. 0* an examination of the daily' papers ve find that Mr. Ryan, in his wisdom, has seen fit to fight against conscription, practically telling us that we are on the wrong side. Now, surely it is unwise or unbecoming of him (who has fought so hard against supplying the aid which we badly need) to attempt even to send a greeting, which, on the face of it, is in sincere! !! It must be admitted that, despite the existence of our own Navy (of which we are all very proud, we are, and always hare been, dependent on the British Navy for the safety of our commerce and the privilege of unmolested sea traffic, for without 'The Mistress of the Seas' we ...

PREFERENCE TO RETURNED SOLDIERS. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 11 May 1917

PREFERENCE TO RETURNED x SOLDIERS. The interpretation put on the prefer ence clause in the Arbitration Act by the two judges on the Industrial Co.urt bench has given rise to a good deal of adverse comment. The decision that returned soldiers at Mt. Morgan may have pre ferential treatment, but can only hold their jobs by becoming unionists, is con trary to the spirit and also, we contend, to the letter of the law, which the Queensland Parliament passed for the benefit of returned soldiers. For a court to place its own interpretation on an Act which was intended to give prefer ence to returned men, simply because a handful of strikers decided that the law did not suit them, is not only unjust, it is an encouragement to men who never fought for their country to claim prefer ence over those who did. The result of the Industrial Court's decision will be a succession of strikes by men who know that they have only to down tools to gain their point, which is 'preference to unionists, whethe...

THE ABSENT VOTES. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 11 May 1917

THE ABSENT VOTES. There are a number of seats in which the absentee and soldiers' votes will make a difference in the final result, and this is more marked in the Brisbane division than ' anywhere else. The votes polled for Mr. Finlayson by the residents totalled 17,110, while those in favor of Lieut.-Col. Plane numbered 16,104. The soldiers' candidate is fairly confident that the absentee vote and the soldiers' rote will give him a small majority. It will be more' than a week before the results are finally known, as the counting of the soldiers' votes will not commence until Wednesday next. The counting of the military votes is progressing in London, but it is unlikely that the returns will be completed before the end of this week. In that case candidates will be in a ferer of anxiety for a week or more. Fred R. Brown, 331 Queen-st., Bris.

What were the "Dark Forces " of Russia ? A SKETCH OF RUSSIA'S RELIGIOUS IMPOSTER, RASPUTIN. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 11 May 1917

What were the ' Dark Forces ' of Russia ? A SKETCH OF RUSSIA'S RELIGIOUS IMPOSTER, RASPUTIN. In the press, recently, and before the revolution, references were, frequently made to certain 'dark forces' at work. These 'dark forces' were composed of a band of impostors, fanatics, and other adventurers with Gregory Rasputin, the chief religious impostor, at their head. George Kennan, one of the ablest jour nalists who ever visited Russia, writes for the 'Outlnok' a mnsf. interesting sketch of Rasputin, whose name, self chosen as it was, stands for rake, profli gate, licentious man, but was adopted by him to denote that from these sins he had reformed. He was of peasant stock, and received the elementary education of the public schools, which enabled him to write his name and read the Bible. ''As a youth,' writes Mr. Kennan, 'he was given to drunkenness and dissipa tion, and lived the life of a common village hoodlum of the peasant class; but in spite of his excesses he developed into a...
