The Railway Conference .. ATNOWBAL The Yass-Canberra to- Jervis Bay railway conference . assemb led £t Nowra on Friday. There were 100 delegates present. All the Braidwood representatives were present, while Mr. J. G. Dunn represented Nerriga. Mr. Austin Chapman was also present. The executive's report was read, but this merely traversed the work done since the inaugura tion of the agitation. The pre sident referred to the matter of finance. He pointed out that al ready Ihe executive had incurred a gppd deal of expense, and much more would probably have to be incurred. . His idea was that the branch leagues being formed should contribute a pro portion of their funds for exe cutive expenses, retaining the balance for local purposes. Aid. Harris (Queanbeyan) pro posed that a levy of 2s 6d be made per member on all branches of the League, towards meeting tho executive expenses.. This was seconded by Mr. Dunn (Ner riga) and carried.

In the course of the debate Mr. Hughes said Great Britain and France could not be bled indefi nitely.,^ -It wj-s because,,^ this, he remarked,' that] Australia was asked to do its share.

MR. HUGHES'S" MANIFESTO. II. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 26 September 1916

MB. HUGJIES'S MANIFESTO. ri. Mr. Hughes, both in his mani: festo and his subsequent 'spee ches, stresses the point that Aus tralia cannot do more than enough in this war, and that since .vol untary effort lias failed to do even enough conscription is the only other alternative. The question is what is enough ? At one tune it was generally conceded thai;.. if we gathered r together an army of 100,000 men we would hayx? done handsomely. When tbeSe came forward the cry went *up for 150,000 and then vipr 20Q,0C0. When these figure?. W-ere reached the demand for 'inore and still more men' was more .insistent ♦ than ever. To-day we have fur nished an army of nearly J$B$pO, and there is fitiU an insufficien cy. At Vhat point, we repeat, will this insatiable thirst for men have been satisfied ? Mr. Hughes says he believes there are suffi cient eligible single men in Aus tralia to satisfy all requirements. According to his figures, if the war lasts for another 12 months we shall require to c...
