The Advocate. FAIR AND IMPARTIAL FRIDAY, JANUARY 17, 1915. A QUESTION OF ECONOMY. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 17 January 1919
THE ADVOCATE FAIR AND IMPARTIAL FRIDAY, JANUARY 17, 1919 A QUESTION OF ECONOMY. If the Premiers and other Ministers &nbsp; who attend the pending conference of Premiers wish to prove their sincerity as economists, they will surely com e to some workable decision in regard to &nbsp; &nbsp; the costly, unnecessary and utterly unwarranted duplication of the mach- inery of taxation in Australia, The time is coming when the overburdened citizens of Australia will demand the application of business methods in the domain of tax gathering. The legiti- mate prospective demands on the purses of the people will be heavy enough in all conscience, without superadding to the weight by defence- less and outrageous extravagances, such as persistence in duplicating the machinery of tax-collecting imposes. When the estimates were before the House of Representatives Mr. Watt, in answer to objections from the econ- omy corner, assured the House that he had tackled the budget fig...

AUSTRALIAN BOLSHEVISM HOW TO DEAL WITH THE MENACE. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 17 January 1919
AUSTRALIAN BOLSHEVISM HOW TO DEAL WITH THE &nbsp; MENACE. SYDNEY.-Speaking at Albion Park, Mr. Mark Morton, M.L.A., said it was time the people rose against those who advocated Bolshevism, and had them &nbsp; shipped to Russia, where they would get practical experience of it. This country was on the verge of thc greatest indus- trial upheaval in its history. This was duo to organised Bolshevism. The people were very long suffering if they allowed these men, for their own bene- fit, to wreck the social order of things. It was the duty of the Federal Govern- ment to deal firmly with this menace, and instead of releasing the interned Germans it should send them back to their own country.

SOLDIERS IN POLITICS—2 To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 17 January 1919
SOLDIERS IN POLITICS-2 To the Editor. Sir,- In a previous letter I appealed for a display of sentiment. In this I wish to urge the exercise of reason. Sentiment is evanescent, and without &nbsp; some form of ceremony will soon lan- guish. Recognising this, I fear that, &nbsp; under some such form as that I sug- gested be practised, our sentiment will keep green but for a very little while. Reason on the other band is enduring, and its exercise leads to lasting results. Therefore, I think it behoves us to make an effort to reason soundly. Here, however, is some of the reasoning employed in re- gard to important political ques- tions; Things are drifting to a very dan- gerous position. All hope in connec- tion with many of our politicians can be cut out. Compare: "It is time the amateur had a chance. If he fails to prove himself the man we need well thank heaven we shall still have the returned soldier, and we can get some comfort in the fact that the returned man cann...

POLICY OF SECRECY ITS FOLLY EXPOSED BY THE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 18 January 1919
POLÍCY OF SECRECY ITS I OLLY EXPOSED BY THE PRESS. PARÍS, Wednesday.-Mr. Fraser, the Australian Press Association's spe cial correspondent nt Paris, says the decision merely to issue an official communique daily, and to maintain ab soluto secrecy, also placing an em bargo on the delegates against discuss ing tho conference with tho press, has occasioned a vigorous protest to Mr. Lloyd George from tho Empire's press representatives. It was pointed ont that secrecy strikes a blow at Dr. Wil son's firsi point, to the effect that covenants should he openly arrived nt. With a conference of 62 delegates, rep resenting 23 separate nations, the pre venting of leakage would bo difficult, especially when some delegates were disgruntled by defeat, and would seek tn gain the public car. This would in evitably lead to inaccurate information escaping.
