The Brisbane Poll Declared. Uproar Reigns Supreme. Mr. Finlayson and the Soldiers. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 8 June 1917

The Brisbane Poll Declared. Uproar Reigns Supreme. Mr. Finlayson and the Soldiers. When Mr. 'M'Cullock, divisional return ing-officer for. Brisbane, rose to declare the result of the poll at the Adelaide street drill grounds on Wednesday there was a big crowd gathered round the plat form which had been erected in the cen tre of the ground. Nationalists and re turned soldiers predominated, as the vol ley of hoots which greeted Mr. Finlayson clearly demonstrated. Mr. M'Cullock declared the result of the poll to be: — Finlayson ? 19,571 Plane . . . . . . . . . . 19,556 Majority for Finlayson 15 He accordingly declared Mr. Finlayson the' Federal member for Brisbane. When Mr. Finlayson rose to move' a vote of thanks to the returning-officer he was greeted with 'Where's your 8000, Billy?' He said there was no man in Brisbane more proud to-day than he. (Hoots and cries of 'Cut it out.') They had come through one of the most re markable elections that had ever taken place in Australia. It w...

The Brisbane Seat. Finalyon Wins. The Narrowest of Margins. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 8 June 1917

The Brisbane Seat. Finlayson Wias. The Narrowest of Margins. The defeat of Lieut.-Col. Plane by fif teen votes for the Brisbane seat has ?caused many heartburnings, especially among the returned soldiers who nomi nated him. Nevertheless, the returned men look upon the result as a moral victory for the manly padre, as he re duced a majority of 6000 to one of (fifteen in a constituency which has long been recognised as one of the most hopeless of forlorn hopes for Labor's opponents. There were many factors which contri buted to the defeat of the returned sol dier candidate, not the least being the dead set which the opposition press made against him. He was abused and libelled in season and out of season until even his supporters, on reading of his errors of omission, wondered what sort of re turned soldier they were putting up as a candidate against the great Finlayson. Though the organised attempts to howl him down may have gained for him some sympathy from a section of his oppo nen...

We should like to know: [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 8 June 1917

We should like to know: Whether there is any power behind the newly-elected Federal Parliament to en force conscription in Australia? Of what avail the Prime Minister's solemn promise will be if the members of the Federal Parliament decide to in troduce conscription ?- Why, in this gravest crisis in the his tory of the Empire, Australia should be the only dominion to cling to the anti quated voluntary system? WUat the Premier has been , telling the shearers in the West about the result of' the Federal election? Which Mr. Ryan regards as the safest index to the outcome of the next 'State elections — the result of the Rockhamp ton by-election or the Federal poll? Why the rejects who obtained badges at the 'beginning of the war, when the standard was high, should not be asked to again submit themselves for examina tion? What i^ the moral standing of a re turned soldier who, haying been dis charged for a defect which 'would not debar him now, fails to re-enlist? Is he regarded as having...

Universal Service Abroad. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 8 June 1917

Universal Service Abroad. Conscription failed to secure approval because facts were misunderstood, and thus gave the opportunity for wilful mis statements. The most fruitful cause of misunderstanding was\ undoubtedly the term 'conscription.' That word must be banished and 'universal service abroad' ?substituted. Clearly, on the facts of the case, conscription as it is understood does not express the system Britain has adop ted, which the United Statese are adopt ing, and which was refused by the Aus tralian people at the referendum. Uni versal service abroad as proposed for Australia is not militarism as it is in Germany. As things are now the move ment for sufficient reinforcements for our units at the front must be considered by the people, or reconsidered. The elec tors must be taught that the voluntary system is insufficient; they must he taught the. difference between Prussian military serfdom and an extension of the universal service in use in Australia to. countries overseas,...

LEAGUE'S READING AND WRITING ROOM. During the past week the reading and writing room maintained for the use of returned soldiers by the Returned Sol diers and Patriots' National Political League has been occupied by the workers of the Australian Women's Service Corps. The result has been that it has not been available for returned men. As the work of the corps was completed on Monday last, the room is again open for the use of all returned soldiers, whether they are * j members of the League or not.

The Fight for the Kennedy Seat. CORPORAL H. E. SIZER RELATES A FEW EXPERIENCES. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 8 June 1917

The Fight for the Kennedy Seat. CORPORAL H. E. SIZER RELATES A FEW EXPERIENCES. In the morning we made a later start than expected, owing to the fact that the 'neddy' refused to be caught, and it was as good as a pantomime to see Dave, as his name turned out to be, still suffering from the rather high time the night be fore, endeavoring to catch an unwilling horse. I had nearly an hour's good fun out of it. The journey home was simply a repetition of the previous day, only on one or two occasions the pace even tried the patience of Dave, who threatened to discard the feed he had aboard unless 'iChinaman' got a move on. Even such a threat failed in its purpose. The cli max was reached on arriving back at the railway station, for to my dismay I dis covered that the car had departed, and I was left stranded until the weekly train came along. This did not improve my temper, and I'm afraid Dave's opinion of his horses must have received a severe shock. If it did not, it must have been be...

The Currency Question. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 8 June 1917

The Currency Question. (By J. W. STRAWSON) Dick: It is in our public works. Bill: Is it? That argument reminds me of something that occurred two or three years ago. I thought then poor old Bob was a bit off his nut, (but I now begin to think there was method in his madness. Dick: What was it, Bill Tell us all about it. - Bill: At that time Bob and I had selec tions near to each other, fifty odd miles up the line. Bob had sent down some produce to the agent, and was coming to 'town to see after the results of the sale. He was pretty hard up at the time, and was compelled to walk. I was hard up, too, and we were short of flour, tea, sugar, &c., and as I had nothing to sell I thought I would come to town and get a week or two's work at my trade so that the wages would enable me to purchase the things we wanted. Like Bob, having no money to pay railway fare, I had to tramp it too, so we agreed to start together. The first night we camped close to the railway line. After , we had...

Preference to Soldiers. FEDERAL LEGISLATION SUGGESTED [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 8 June 1917

Preference to Soldiers. FEDERAL LEGISLATION SUGGESTED A conference of delegates representing the State branches of the Returned Sailors .and Soldiers' Imperial League was held at the Stock Exchange Build ings, Melbourne, on Friday last. Lieut. Colonel Bolton presided. Sergeant Nicholas (Q.) referred to a decision by the Queensland Arbitration Court that returned soldiers who were non-unionists should join a union within a month if they were to be reinstated in their positions at the Mount Morgan mine. It was the desire o£ returned men to know if this decision was legal. The council should secure the highest legal opinion as to the legality of the decision of the Queensland Court. Lieut.JColonel Bolton said that legisla tion dealing with the matter should be introduced. Public opinion would strong ly support the policy of preference to returned soldiers^, other things being equal. Sergeant Nicholas moved, — 'That the Federal Government establish the prin ciple of preference to return...

Preference to Returned Soldiers. Gunner Foil, who is among the leading three in the Senate election, was enter tained last week by the Returned Sol diers of Rockhamptn.

Gunner Foil, in proposing 'The Boys at the Front, and the Returned Men ,'n said that even in Brisbane many returned soldiers were not getting a fair deal. He explained the objects of the Soldiers' Political League, and said that as their servant in the Commonwealth Parliament it would be his duty, among other things, to look into any complaints by the returned soldiers or the depen dents of those who had fallen or who had been maimed. He mentioned that he had received a large number of com plaints, which he intended to bring be fore the authorities as speedily as pos sible. Referring to something which had happened at Mount Morgan, Gunner Foil said the award made by his Honor -Mr. Justice M'Cawley was to the effect that unless the returned soldiers joi...

The Editor's Dugout. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 15 June 1917

The Editor's Dugout. From the 'Bulletin' : The Anzacs' and the .Scottish regiments ^re great pals. All our ranks seem to get on better with the men who .helped them out at Bulle coure than with the English Tommies. The other day at Etaples there was a cinema exhibition of the Somme films. No picture of the Australians o^ 'Jocks' was shown. A Tommy in tlie audience, fired with enthusiasm, called out, 'Where are the Scotties and Australians now, en r JuiKe a snot tne reply came from a Kiltie: 'Up i' the front trenches keep ing the Gairrmans back while ye — — — s are getting yeer photos takken.' - ? During the Galli'poli campaign hundreds 1 of wounded Anzacs poured into Egyptian hospitals looking like scarecrows. Their tunics were covered with caked mud and blood, and many were in ribbons. Those whose clobber looked fairly decent to the quartermasters had to wear them oh discharge, though there was plenty of clothing to spare. Result was that a few who could afford it had uniforms made...
