STATE GOVERNMENT'S WAR TIME EXTRAVAGANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 13 February 1917

STATE GOVERNMENT'S WAR TIME EXTRAVAGANCE. The average man is not a party fanatic. lie does not care wha" party is in power so long as the usiness of the country is carried on to his liking. There are times when he gets It into his head that a particular party is either very good or very bad as the case may be, and he may for some time. hold the view that one party can do no thing right or that another party can do nothing wrong, but, speaking generally, the average man is toler ant in his attitude towards all par ties. Whilst this is his attitude dur ing normal times, his. indifference to t allegiance to any party is still more pronounced. during war time. He is then filled with contempt for politicians' feuds, ambitions and wire-pulling, and his one desire is that the business of the country should be efficiently carried on. This applies not only to his views .regard ing the Imperial and Federal Go? vernments in their conduct' of the I war, but also to 4he aeffairs of the State Gov...

Is the war Io be lost for want ofi food for the beople of these islands, as at one time it. was in danger of being lost for want of food for the gunsf , This is the grave question which confronts the nation at the present moment. The success which is at tending the enemy's submarine campaign, now taking heavy toll of food-carrying ships, the loss of our huge purchase of Rumanian wheat, .the shortage of labour. owing to the needs and demands of the army, and 'the ill weather which has seriously reduced the area of autumn wheat ,have brought us within sight of 'a famine of' essen tial food commodities, and only im mediate and drastic Government action to cont"rol the sunn-ly. oro duction, aiid distribution of fcdd can' prevent such a tragedy.

THE NEUTRAL POWERS' POSITION. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 13 February 1917

THE NEUTRAL POWERS' POSITION. As Germany has declared war upon the world-piratical, not open war-neutral countries have either to "take it lying down" or to ar range for combined opposition. The European neutrals-Denmark Nor way, Holland, and latterly Spain have passively borne for some months past the persisteiit destruc tion of their mercantile marine, and the sacrifice of the lives of their sailors. Their passivity is admitted ly a matter of fear. They have no armies or navies which can vindicate their rights or avenge their wrongs, and therefore their poverty, and not their will, consents to submarine out rages. They have long looked to the United States to champion the cause of neutrals and the interna tional laws of sea commerce; but they hitherto looked in vain, be cause the academic President of the great Republic has a political hori zon bounded by the Monroe doctrine of unconcern in European affairs. President Wilson seemed for a time to consider himself absolved from all ...
