BRISBANE SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 18 May 1917

BRISBANE SHOW. The Queensland National Show, which will be held in Brisbane this year on from Monday, '13th, to Saturday, 18th August, promises to be one of the best yet held. So sanguine is the management concerning the increased entries that £2000 has been voted for the erection of .additional cattle and horse stalls and yards. The improvements will include the erection of a commodious pavilion, in which the dogs will be housed, and the erection of buildings on most modern lines for the accommodation of butter, cheese; and bacon exhibits. Consider able improvement are being carried out for the better catering facilities afforded to visitors, and the thirsty ones will be accommodated at a new rotunda bar which is being erected . on Machinery Hill. These are only a few of the many improvements being carried out at pre sent. Entries have already been received from the owners of the best trotting and jumping horses in the States, and the demand made upon the association for cattle spa...

For the War, but Against its Prosecution ! [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 18 May 1917

For the WarT hist Against its Prosecution ! - The above phrase, coined by America's most famous President, Abraham Lincoln,, was never more applicable to a people than to a section, of the Australians to day. There is no need to explain that sentence, for there is only one class of people in this fair land who are against j the effective prosecution of the war. ! The National party, known for purposes of electioneering as the 'Win-the-war party,' consists of the people who have banded together to ensure that the spirit ' of loyalty which permeated Australians at the outset of the war shall be per petuated. They are for the war, heart and soul, and they contend that their intention to win1 the war will not stop short at mere words. The term 'win the war' is to them much more than a mere catch phrase, though the 'Bulletin' pro fesses to believe that unless the National party introduces conscription the war cannot be more vigorously and effectively prosecuted by one party than by the o...

Electoral Reform. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 18 May 1917

Electoral Reform. One of the main, planks of the Labor platform is the initiative and referendum. Another is electoral reform; yet it is a significant fact that even under the leadership of Mr. Hughes the . party studi ously neglected both planks. The reason, of course, was not far to seek. Both the initiative and referendum and electoral reform, if dragged from the obscurity of purely academic discussion into the fierce light of public opinion, would have been two steps further on the path of democratic progress. Notwithstanding their boasted 'democracy,' the Labor party has never been anything but a party. It has no true national ideals, or it would long since have brought forward electoral reform as one of the stepping stones to a system of true responsible government. As a party, elected on a system which condemns the electors to the role of mere vote-recording puppets, Labor could never stand for anything but sectional government. And what was true of them is also true of the L...

The Currency Question. Village Settlement. [It .is the intention of the 'National Leader' to publish each week extracts jjrejn a pamphlet on the currency ques ts' on written by Mr. J. W. Strawson some years ago.] »iek: Well, chaps, what are you dis cussing? Politics, I suppose? Rill: Wei have been discussing the un employed difficulty, and I suppose that is a. political question. How do you think it *an be settled? ©ick: I can see only one way — put- the f^ople on tffe land by State-aided village settlement. ?ffleorge: That is easier said than done. A good many schemes have been pro jNRsed, but all that have received any consideration have been pronounced im practicable. Penniless men cannot go m the land, and the Government have «oi money with which to assist them as s.a advance, and if they had there is the difficulty of security for repayment.' ¥hei i we must consider the farmers already on the land, who have received so assistance.

The Fight for the Kennedy Seat. CORPORAL H. E. SIZER RELATES A FEW EXPERIENCES. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 1 June 1917

The Fight for the Kennedy Seat. CORPORAL H. E. SIZER RELATES A FEW EXPERIENCES. The nor'-nor'-west of Queensland has many undoubted charms, particularly to tourists, but it is exceedingly doubtful if they are really appreciated by persons on electioneering jaunts. The long,, weary train journeys, the once-a-week services in parts, certainly weigh heavily ' against the glories of the northern por tion of the State, and are liable to pre judice such a visitor, particularly one who is anxious to scamper over a stretch _ of country, for which an ordinary travel ler would allot three months, in a little more than that number of weeks. Any how, what is lost in inconvenience is gained in the warmth of the Northern welcome. There is certainly a great deal of amusement to be derived from being a, candidate for political honors. You hear such weird stories about yourself that at times it makes you wonder whether you are the same person as when you started or whether . you have passed through ...

A Weekly Letter to Billjim. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 1 June 1917

A Weekly Letter to Billjtm. Dear Soldier Boy; — You will know long before you get this how the votes for the soldier candidate . for Brisbane have crept up on those for the present misrepresentative, and per haps you can guess how excited we all are — at least some of us. Most of yo* know that it isn't the most difficult thing v in the world for me to get enthusiastic. It's in the blood, you know, for an old. ancestor of mine answered to the name of O'Brien. But I'm not half so proud of that ancestral drop as I used to be before the war. However, the Colonel-Chaplain seems to take things' as coolly as ever, for all that. He is on the sick list with ' 'flu,' and his secretary just smiles. I wonder sometimes if it is be cause he knows it is all right, or be cause these* returned men have ? seen such tremendous issues at stake that an , election won or lost is not everything to him. The soldiers' home is on the way to becoming a concrete ftfct. It will be a relief in every «way when it...

Work of the Red Cross Kitchen. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 1 June 1917

Work of the Red Cross Kitchen. It is situated at Petrie's Bight, this busy centre of Red Cross work — just op posite the little ferry which takes you to the Base Hospital. Such a busy centre it is, and from early morning till six o'clock each day there is an army of workers, in big aprons and white caps, making cakes and ' scones, peeling fruit and vegetables, jam-making, pastrymak ing, for the boys in the various military hospitals. Five camp hospitals and the Base Hospital at Kangaroo Point are ? supplied with extra delicaciies from the kitchen. 'And where,' one asks, 'does the material come from — the eggs, but ter, flour, fruit, &c. which is used daily?' Everything is donated by friends of the soldiers — eggs by the children of the metropolitan schools, oysters by the Moreton Bay. Oyster Co. and* by Mr. James Clark, fruit and vegetables by the Roma-street markets. The picture shows one day's donation from the generous friends at the markets. Day after day for the past ? ...
