ALLIES' VILLAGE FAIR. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 3 August 1917

ALLIES' VILLAGE FAIR. The Allies' Village Fair, which is to open in Brisbane to-morrow (August 4), as announced in our advertising columns, has been entirely rebuilt and re-decorated on up-to-date lines. The designer, who is unequalled at this class of the work in the Southern hemisphere, was actively engaged in the building of the Panama Exhibition, designing some of the largest shows there, and has since designed famous White City in Coney Island, New .York. The huge dome is modelled after some of the old European palaces, and is a marvellous set piece. It is intended to run the fair over Exhibition week. With the new side shows and competi tions, and influential body of stall-holders and workers, the Patriotic and Repatria tion funds should reap a substantial monetary assistance. This fair will be on more up-to-date lines than the first of: the kind held in Market-square, and should be a much bigger source of at traction.

We should like to know: [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 3 August 1917

We should like to know : Why, in he selection of a candidate to represent Oxley in the interests of the so-called National party, votes were re corded for a number of branches which did not exist? What the general public think of an organisation which descends to such dis honest methods? What has become of 'Captain Dash's badge scheme? If it has been dropped in favor of a second conscription referendum? If it is fair that because a returned soldier obtains employment he should have his pension docked? Why dependents of returned soldiers should have to reimburse amounts over paid by the Defence Department? What will be the outcome of the pre sent railway trouble? How the railway unionists can logi cally claim that only unionists should be paid the increases granted under the new award ? Why, if the argument be carried fur ther, the soldiers who have fought for Australia should not rule the country? Whether the Ryan Government .is really in earnest in its efforts to settle the returne...

The Cloud in the Sky. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 3 August 1917

The Cloud in the Sky. In moving^ the second reading of the Unlawful Associations Bill in the Senate last week, Senator Millen, who had the bill in charge, remarked anent the Indus trial Workers of the World: — 'It is quite clear, from its actions, that it is issuing a challenge to the public life, as well as the private security, of the country. Aus tralia has, probably more than any other ?country, adopted the soundly democratic principle that- it will be governed in a constitutional way, and that the laws made by the majority of its citizens shall stand and be respected. This organisa tion .... stands for anarchy, and thereby becomes a distinct menace to the public life of this country and to the private security of individual citizens.' It is a matter to be deeply deplored that the necessity should arise for the intro duction of such a measure in democratic . Australia, but, on the other hand, it is a matter for congratulation that there are in the National Parliament men possess...

NO PITY FOR THE BOSCHE. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 3 August 1917

NO PITY FOR THE BOSCHE. Read what the German armies in France and (Belgium have done from 'military necessity,' and then see if you can find it in your mind to pity the vile 1 brood of Prussians whom the British are now pounding to death: — 'The slabs have been lifted bodily from graves— not by any explosion, but by human hands — and the graves are empty. What was the ghoulish motive? Was it for the sake of the lead in which the bodies were enclosed? If may have been; or it may have been the mere spite against all sacred things which has found full vent in the wreckage of the church. That is a pitiable sight; but the church of Lian court Forse has been partially blown up and defiled with 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 destruc tion of the articles of worship. Sacred symbols and images have been purposely battered and defaced; the Holy Books are torn and tr...

The Editor's Dugout. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 3 August 1917

The Editor's Dugout. 'Australia in Action' is the caption of an article in the press last week. 'Aus- tralia's Inaction' is how it should have read.. ; ?H * * * Captain' Coates, of New South Wales, was right when he said last week that things were looking black for democracy. There is a ray of hope in the attitude of the British High Command, however. Nothing can be too black when our armies are preparing for another offen sive. ft sk ale sk Surely Mr. Ryan must know that the kind of 'plain talk' ' which he indulged in to the members of the Chamber of Commerce was not at all convincing. * * * * How is it that the American artisan is almost twice as efficient as his Austra lian brother? It surely must be that the I.W.W. has been transferred from the United States to Australia. * * * ♦ The suggestion that American troops should be sent to Russia on account of the psychological effect is on all fours with the suggestion that Japan should send, an army to the Eastern front. 'Twould be m...

LEAGUE BRANCH FORMED AT WINDSOR. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 3 August 1917

LEAGUE BRANCH FORMED AT WINDSOR. A well-attended meeting of Windsor residents was held in the School of Arts on Wednesday night to hear representa tives of the Returned 'Soldiers and Patriots' National 'Political League ex plain the aims and objects of that orga nisation. Mr. N. R. Worrall (organiser of the League) presided, and there were also present Messrs. H. E. Sizer and A. Russell (League officials). Mr. Sizer spoke at some length on the political situation and the menace of the republi-. can spirit, which was fast taking hold of a big section of the community. He made it quite plain that if the action referred to made a move in the direction of severing relationship with the mother land the men who had fought to pre serve Australia as an integral part of ths Empire would be up ' in arms against them. Mr. Russell said that the lack of sympathy shown by the present Govern ment for the returned soldier or his rela tives was plainly demonstrated by the action of a Minister in ope...

Crumbs of Comment. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 3 August 1917

Crumbs of Comment. So they have decided to abolish 'Han- sard' in West Australia to save a paltry £5000 a year. A flagrant case of 'penny wise, pound foolish.' ? * * * J. A. Fihelly, the most staunch anti Imperialdst in the State House, was in the limelight again t'other night. He did not come out of the business any too creditably, either. Probably he thought uoarrey morgan would take the insult levelled at him lying down, and the shock to his self-esteem when Morgan asked him to come outside riveted him to his seat. *-**?* 'The favorite pastime in political cir cles just now is a guessing competition in which candidates for the next 'State election figure largely. One of the wild est rumors is that which couples the name of Dr. Kidston with the Nundah seat. * * # . * Ex-Sapper Bartlett has announced his intention of contesting 'the Enoggera seat.

Returned Soldiers' Pensions. SENATOR FOLL ON THE WARPATH [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 3 August 1917

Returned Soldiers' Pensions. SENATOR FOLL ON THE WARPATH In the Senate on Thursday last Senator Foil, the representative of the R.S. and P.N.P. League in the Federal House, brought under the notice of members what appeared to him an unsatisfactory state of affairs in the pensions branch of the Treasury Department, particularly so far as Queensland was concerned. He cited one case in which Robert S. j Webb, who gave up his employment to enlist, was discharged from camp owing to an internal strain, and had received' no pension or compensation from the department. The second case was that of Trooper H. Lane, late of the 2nd Light Horse. He was invalided back from Gallipoli on account of a wound in the hip. The medical officer reported favor ably to Melbourne on the man's case, and he was passed as fit to return to duty. He was medically inspected at camp headquarters, Enoggera, on January 17, 1916, and was rejected on account of his wound. He was discharged, and joined the recruiting s...

"Strafing" Fritz. VALLEY BOY'S EXPERIENCE [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 3 August 1917

44 Strafing ' Fritz. VALLEY BOY'S EXPERIENCE Mrs. Adamson, of Kennigo-street, Val ley, has received an interesting letter from her son Stan, at present in hospital in Scotland. He says: — 'I suppose you got a great shock when you received a field service card stating that I have been wounded. Do not worry, as my wound is very slight. I was only hit in the right elbow with a bit of shrapnel, and I am now getting on alright, though my army is very sore. I was very lucky to get off so lightly, as the shell fire was terrific. I had a couple of very narrow shaves. In one case a shell burst a couple of feet behind me, and I was blown into a shell-hole. I was not hit until late in the afternoon. It was a great battle, and I am pleased to say I was in it. A couple of my mates were killed. 'The ground on the battlefield was one mass of shell-holes, to say nothing of mine craters. I got a German offi cer's cap for a souvenir. My officer and a couple of us were clearing out a couple of farmhou...

Will Australia Have Conscription? HOW AMERICA'S ENTRANCE WILL AFFECT IT [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 3 August 1917

Will Australia Have Con scription? HOW AMERICA'S ENTRANCE WILL AFFECT IT | Mr. Hughes, Prime Minister of Austra lia, in May last pledged himself not to introduce .conscription either by statute or regulation, but said that if the Allied arms suffered a reverse which made it imperative .that Australia should throw all her strength into the struggle he would seriously consider the question of another referendum. That pledge en abled him, and the party led by him, to sweep the polls at the last general elec tion, even though thoughtful electors knew that without conscription the National party could do no more to help win the war than the previous Govern ment had done. FAILURE OF VOLUNTARISM. The utter failure of the voluntary method of recruiting to secure reinforce ments sufficient to keep our live divi sions up to strength, and the disinclina tion of a section of the workers to take the war seriously, has led Mr. Hughes to again consider the question of a fresh reference of the cons...
