Mr . Boyand, president of the Goldfields branch of the party, was in the chair. Mr. Underwood said that relatives of his; including his own son, were fighting, or being returned woun ded, whilst he had had the spectacle at home of men quarrelling over the technicalities of the Labour consti tution. It had been said that he had broken one or two regulations of the Labour constitution, but that constitution was formed in normal times, and when they hadia foe like Germany coming at them it was very ineffective indeed to stand on the shore and wave the Labour consti-' tution at him.

AT THE SEIGE OF LUCKNOW. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 20 February 1917

There he sat perched on high, watching most patiently until he saw a man in an exposed position, when a little jet tf smoke would issue from the loop hole of the tower; and the -object of his aim would stagger and fall dead or desperately wounded. This happened so often that the artillery were desired to throw shells at the tower for the special purpose of killing the marksman. A shell was throwLi, and a little ring of smoke showed that it had burst just over the place where the negro was in the habit of standing; and yet immediately after a rifle ball came whistling as usual from the loophole. Another shell was thrown, and another, all with the same result. .It seemed as if the man was shell-proof, ...
