SPORTSMEN AND THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 6 March 1915
SPORTSMEN AND THE WAR.. Speaking at the annual meeting of the Port Melbourne Football Club, on Monday night, Mr. J. Mathews, M.P., for Melbourne Ports, said that in cer tain quarters it -had been alleged that the sportsmen of Australia did not ap pear to realise their responsibilities in regard to the terrible war now raging in Europe. It had been alleged that they did not realise the duties that they owed to the old flag-the Union Jack. This charge had been levelled at not only the sportsmen of Australia but also those of the Bittish Empire. In his opinion such an accusation was uncalled for. Further, a comparison had been drawn betwen the patriotism displayed by Parliamentarians in Aus tralia and those in England. It had been said that members of the Hous6 of Commons had responded nobly, while those of the Commonwealth were conspicuous by their absence.

Ex-Secretary Resents Criticism. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 6 March 1915
Ex-Secretary Resents Criticism. A lengthy letter has been received from Mr.-M. Conniff, late secretary of the local Labor League. In this Mr. Conniff characterises a member's utterances regarding him as vulgar, insulting, and offensive, and accre dits his attitude to feeling engender ed by a criticism of his actions and. utterances in the party. Regarding the subject under discussion at the branch meeting, which referred to an appeal for a distressed member made direct to the Central Executive, Mr. Conniff says he was only actuated by a desire to give her immediate relief, because his experiences of benefit entertainments organised by .the branch as a body did not inspire him with the belief that a material sum would be quickly raised. AMr. Con niff in turn accuses the member.-in question of being guilty of what he was accused-the making of an un fortunate woman the butt for per sonal spleen. He also asserts that two female members of the branch, after waiting on the distressed mem ...
