"Married Men" Lie THE GOVERNMENT'S PLEDGES. EXEMPTION FROM SERVICE ASSURED. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough, Eltham and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 15 December 1917
"Married Men" Lie THE GOVERNMENT'S PLEDGES. EXEMPTION FROM SERVICE ASSURED. - t By the opponents of the proposals of t the Ministry to send reinforcements to the Australians at the Front, much is 1 being made of the possible calling up /of married men for compulsory service, To these opponents it matters not what pledge has been given to the people by the Ministry; their only desire'is to work upon the selfish instincts of ~the few in order to defeat the Ministry for political purposes. The Empire may totter to its fall; Australia may become the possession of Germany; it .may be the territory in pawn for whatever passin~g international advantage may be gained. To those who oppose the Government's proposals it matters :ot. They seek material and personal gain, be the cost to the average citizen of the Commonwealth what it may. However, to those who will examine the position from a sane and rational point of view, and who will seek to as certain whether the piesent Ministry has kept t...

THE "DONE ENOUGH" LIE A Belgian Refutes it [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough, Eltham and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 15 December 1917
THE "DONE ENOUGH" LIE A Belgian Refutes it ·-.I -, Thd'foll?~inglett written by M. A. De Bavay, speaks for itself. To the workers of Australia it will be a repudiion ~ lffici ? :of. the"i .done enough "' lie: Clenoara, Studley Park Road, Kew, November 28th, 1917. My 'friends know that I am Belgian born, and a great many people know that I have been." Australian " for some 33 years. During those years I have had much to do with the working men of Australia in the many enterprises with which I have been connected, and it is my pleasing recollection that at all times I have found them ready to relieve want and distress, and give a helping hand to the fellow who is down. The Australian public have most generously contributed to the relief of my countrymen, and whilst America was able to distribute relief, existence in Belgium was sustainied, but since America entered the war as our Ally, a great many of the relief ships have been sunk, and Belgium is starving. The people of Australia re...
The "Facts and Figures" Lie THE MEN AVAILABLE. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough, Eltham and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 15 December 1917
,The "Facts and Figures" Lie THE MEN AVAILABLE. Lacking concrete arguments against the proposals of the Federal Ministry to send reinforcements to the Austra lians at thile front, the members of the Labour party who are advising the people to vote" No" on December 20 have followed the lead of Mr. Tudor, the leader of the. Federal Parliamentary Labour party, in distorting the figures aiven by the Prime Minister (Mr. Hudghes) in his speech at Benidigo, Mir. Hughes, in pointig out that thero were plenty of single eligible men in Australia., stated that there were at least 370,000 such men who might be called upon for service. Mr. Tudor, however, pretended that official figures which had been supplied to Senator Gardiner during the previous ieferen dum campaigti showed that there were only 190,869 such men. Mr. Tudor must have known, however, that he was quoting wrongly. The figures which he gave--190,869-referred to the men who reported under the proclamation issued during the previous...
"Australia First" ADVICE OF SINN FEIN LEADERS. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough, Eltham and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 15 December 1917
"Australia First" ADVICE OF SINN FEIN LEADERS. Now is not the time to mince words. There is a section of men in our midst-I do not refer to the I.W.W. -whose one feeling is a hatred of England, and a desire to do her harm. There is a certain ecclesias tic in our midst who has insulted the whole Australian people most vilely, and insulted those loyal Irish-Austra lians that have gone out to fight. This man said: "Put Australia first." And I say that this man and those that follow him, those Sinn Fein peo ple, are prepared to offer up Austra lia on the altar of that vicious and danger us creed. I say that their goal can only be reached and their ob ject brought about at the expense of the disintegration of the British Em pire. I say to you Australians, whether you are English or Irish, if you are Australians, show this man and all that stand with him, show these enemies of Australia, that you do put Australia first, by voting "Yes." One word more upon this and I have done. I say to yo...
How the German Army Fights for Right and Truth IN THE WEST IN THE EAST [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough, Eltham and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 15 December 1917
How the German Army Fights for Right and Truth IN THE WEST IN THE EAST "One is accustomed here to the spectacle of churches which have been reduced to ruins by gunfire; but the church of Liandourt Fosse has been partially blown up, then plun dered, and defiled with precisely the same unholy rage as the Germans have wreaked on the simple homes of the peasants and the innocent trees and shrubs. There has been deliberate and individual destruction of the articles of worship. Sacred symbols and images have been purpose fully battered and defaced; the Holy Books are torn and trampled underfoot; the vestments have been fouled; be neath the ruined vault you now walk ankle-deep in a Jitter of bricks and stained glass fragments, pages torn from Testaments and prayer- ooks and broken bite of statues the Mother and the Holy Infant."--" Times" Special Cor respondent, April 2, 197. •\. , ' -. ,·· "When the German Army arrived in Czentoohow8 the usual atrocities and outrages were perpetrated.

The "Wealth" Lie PRIME MINISTER'S EXPOSURE. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough, Eltham and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 15 December 1917
The "Wealth" Lie PRIME MINISTER'S EXPOSURE. A great deal has been made by the opponents of the proposals of the Ministry to send reinforcements to the men at the front to the idea that while it is proposed to compulsorily send men to fight for Australia and the Empire, there are no proposals to make the wealthy people of Australia bear their share of the burden. The Prime Minis ter (Mr. Hughes), however, flatly con tradicts this statement: "To say that we are not prepared to make wealth pay its share is the exact opposite of the truth." Very heavy increases in taxation have been imposed since the ontbreak of the war. Here are a few examples of what wealthy people pay in income tax alone. A person, with out dependants, whose income is de rived entirely from personal exertion, with £5000 a year, pays £949 15s. 9d. A person with £10,000 a year pays £2776 Os. 10d. One with £20,000 a year pays no less than £6692 14s. 2d., or nearly one-third of his income in income tax alone. If this inc...
Lies and Red Flag AN INTERESTING REVELATION. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough, Eltham and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 15 December 1917
Lies and Red Flag AN INTERESTING REVELATION. .. Once again the members of the La bour party have constituted themselves the clhief opponents to the Ministry's proposals to send reinforcements to the men at the front.' At first glance it is ratliser hard to understand why a party ".ihose chief aim, ostensibly is to secure the iselfaie of the worker, should con stitute itself the leader of a disloya s'titute itself the leader of a disloyal ist movement---a movement whidh, if it p.i'oved successful,. might mean the .handding over of the workers to a Prus sian domination which would not tole rate industrial unionism for one mo nient. But, even a momentary inves Ligation reveals the fact that the La hour movement has long since strayed from. the paths: of virtue, that long silice it hias gii'-en itself into -the keep in'g of anarchists, of .incemidiarists, of disloyalists and, the Sini Fein. Os tensibly it is fighling for.the workers; in 'irealit3y it is fighting for anarchy, rebellion a...
Behind Walls of Steel THE PROTECTION OF THE NAVY. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough, Eltham and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 15 December 1917
Behind Walls of Steel THE PROTECTION OF THE NAVY. Happily we have been far removed froth the storm centre, firmly en trenched behind the impregnable • wall of steel that Britain has draiwn around her overseas possessions. We have lived safely during this terrible trial and have slept safely. Lately some slight evidence has been seen of the war around our own coasts. Two vessels have been destroyed, and one other has been captured, if not destroyed. At any moment, by a su preme effort, raiders may evade the vigilance of the British Navy ,and, " bring the war to our very shores war with most of its hoirrors. Upon the issue of this conflict lies our des- .. tiny. This is the fact that has to be driven into the heads of the people. -W. M. HUGHES, Prime Minister,
