We should like to know: [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 18 May 1917

We should like to know : Why Mr. Ryan is so jubilant over the Government victory at Rockhampton? Why the Industrial Court judges took it on themselves to practically force re turned soldiers to join unions? Who has the greater claim for con sideration when work is offering — the man who fought for his country or the slacker who would not raise a1 finger to defend it? Why Mr. E. G. Theodore, who con demned the I.W.W. some months ago, +V» « 4- ? ? Liic vu mo o La tcilieii IS recently?' Wa3 he afraid that the presence of the I.W.W. element in the Labor party would adversely influence the Labor vote in Rockhampton. Why the Government has won four by elections since its election to office? If it is because the seats contested are Labor strongholds, or because of the floods of socialistic eloquence poured forth by dozens of Labor members? If the success of the 'Caucus party at Rockhampton does not teach the Nationalists the need for real organisa tion? How many members of the State Op pos...

The Four Essential Freedoms German Influence in Australia and Mexico. An Unholy Alliance. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 18 May 1917

The Four Essentia! Freedoms. German Influence in Australia and Mexico. An Unholy Alliance. The big German vote recorded for the official Labor p^rty during the recent election was antagonistic to the National party in several ways. The first desire of the electors of German descent, how ever, was to preserve, if possible, every concession which has been given to their communities to educate their children in German schools according to German standards. Under a War Ar.t. even where the State Governments had failed to disperse the German scholars and teachers, and to close the German j schools, it was possible for Mj\ Hughes and two members of his Cabinet to take the necessary- steps. The German elec tors therefore allied themselves with the party which is not so unsympathetic to tiro' establishment of flenomihatiOiial; sec tional, and racial schools as are the Nationalists, and for this allegiance they were rewarded with the mouth to mouth promise that if the official Labor party we...

The Currency Question. A Study in Economics. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 18 May 1917

The Currency Question. A Study in Economics. It is the intention of the 'National j Leader' to publish each week extracts from a pamphlet, consisting of five parts, ' on. the currency question, written by Mr. J. W. Strawson. In the opinion of many critics Mr. Strawson is years before his time, but his theories are not less valu able on that account. Ed. 'N.L.' George: 'Well, Bill, what do you think of things now? Bill: I am blessed if I know what it is coming to. I have not had three months' work this year, and it is harder to get a job now than ever; besides, wages have gone down so low that they are scarcely worth taking home when you get them. They are all condemned long before they are earned. George: It is just the same in our trade; there is scarcely a job to be got at any price. . Something will have to be done before long; we can't go much further at this rate. Bill: That is all very well, but what is to be done? That is my difficulty. ' The Government has made promise after...

To Close Racecourses and Stadiums. PETITION TO PRIME MINISTER. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 18 May 1917

To Close Racecourses and Stadiums. PETITION TO PRIME MINISTER. The Queensland Recruiting Committee is, we understand, responsible for the preparation Of a petition to the Prime Minister asking for the closing of all racecourses and stadiums for the dura tion of the war. The petition reads as follows:— 'That we desire that you and your colleagues will as early as possible take whatever action may be necessary to stop horseracing during the duration of the war, and close all stadiums for the same term. Your petitioners desire to remind you that reinforcements for our brave Australian soldiers now serv ing xis and our Empire on the various battlefields in this world-war, many of whom are greatly overworked,' and whose strength is sorely taxed, are urgently required, and though we recognise that your Government has expressed full sym pathy with the Queensland Recruiting Committee's vigorous efforts, it has to ' be admitted that this month again no reinforcements are available.

£1 per Day. A WEIRD SUGGESTION. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 18 May 1917

£1 per Day. A WEIRD SUGGESTION. Someone, writing in the Brisbane press, makes the suggestion that in order to increase tlie circulation of cash in Aus tralia the Australians at the front and in camp should each and all be paid £1 per day. How the writer expects coin to be circulated in Australia by flinging it | about among men who are in France, England, and Egypt, this paper has no means of ascertaining, not being in the writer's confidence, but what it can see is that if every Australian soldier re ceived £i per diem — that is, approximate ly, £300,000 for the army — at least one-' half of it would circulate among the populations of France and Britain, and in Egypt a big percentage of the cash would find its way into the hands of people who are not disposed to be friend ly towards the Allies. Much good Aus tralian money now finds its- way1 through devious channels into the trea suries of enemy countries, and to in crease the pay to £1 would be to throw good money after bad, for a...

The Preference Farce. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 18 May 1917

The Preference Farce. The Ryan Government went into power a couple of years ago on the understand ing that preference to unionists would be one of the first principles which they would fight on behalf of the workers. In 'fact, all .over Australia the burning ques tion of the hour was whether unionists should or should not have preference OTer workers who refused, rightly or wrongly, to have any truck with unions. Armageddon burst on a startled world. and is still raging. Australians are dying by the scores and hundreds, are . passing their days and nights in a living hell of Hunnish shell-bursts and poison laden vapors. They are dying grimly . amid the most awful scenes of desola tion and destruction the world has ever witnessed — and for what? They are bar ing their breasts to the iron storm, form ing a rampart of dead and wounded, a barrier between the dragon of German militarism and the fair women and chil dren of this sunny southern land. And the men who should be over there eas...

Anti-Shouting. AN AUSTRALIAN CAMPAIGN. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 18 May 1917

Anti-Shouting. AN AUSTRALIAN CAMPAIGN. 'Shouting,' or treating to drinks, is a pratJtice which has done more than any other to ruin the returned soldier mor ally, intellectually, and physically. When a young man returns from the war with shattered nerves and lowered vitality he is in no condition to withstand the temp- j tation of the solace offered by alcohol, even if he is left to himself. ? In the hands of men whose moral fibre has not been to the same extent sapped by the devitalising effects of continuous war fare lie is practically helpless. He is too weak to say 'No' to the tempter, and he becomes a victim of the drinking habit. In Great Britain the authorities early realised that it was the 'shouting' habit which was mainly responsible for the excessive drunkenness among the troops, and steps were taken to put an end to the pernicious practice. 'The anti-shouting measure was brought into force under the 'Defence of the Realm Act Amendment Act No. 3, 1915.' ^ It reads as foll...

RETURNED SOLDIERS' BADGES. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 18 May 1917

RETURNED SOLDIERS' BADGES. Numerous complaints ' have reached this office regarding the number of offi cial returned soldiers' badges worn by Men who were never on active service. Tn many instances returned men lose their badges, and the persons finding them wear them on suitable occasions, such as a race meeting, where the pre sentation of the. badge entitles the holder to free admission. It might be suggested that the military and civil police should 7ieep a lookout for men suspected of wearing badges to which they are not entitled. Those entering the racecourse [ sates wearing a badge should be asked I to produce their discharge certificate. Though this might entail some hardship on genuine returned soldiers, the frauds would be discovered, and many men who have lost or been deprived of their badges would have them restored. A still tongue does not always make a irise head, but a wise head generally keeps a still tongue.
