"STILL THE CONTEMPTIBLE ARMY." [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 20 October 1916

' STILL THE CONTEMPTIBLE ARMY.' The German Press has given its public very little information about the great offensive on the west, It continues to assert that the German line is unconquerable. Late in July, the ' Cologne Gazette ' cheered its readers with the following passage : — ' England's aim is to overthrow the German army, which has been stiffened by two years of war, with an army which has been put together under every possible difficulty, which is no doubt patriotic, and perhaps brave, but which is composed of quite un military elements, which certainly no longer consists of the flower of the nation, and which has officers and non-commissioned officers who only possess the smallest experience of war. If France is to receive the relief which she needs, the English army must triumph over troops whose- leadership and technique compare with the best Continental army, while every man of us is inspired with a passionate desire to . come to grips with this our most hated enemy.' ...

RETURNED SOLDIERS AND PATRIOTS' NATIONAL LEAGUE. Meeting at Sandgate. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 20 October 1916

RETURNED SOLDIERS AND PATRIOTS' NATIONAL LEAGUE. Meeting at Sandgate. A well-attended meeting was held in the Sandgate Town Hall, on Monday night last, under the auspices of the Returned Soldiers and Patriots' Na tional' League. The Mayor , (Aid. Quinlan) presided. Mr. H. Foil, the opening speaker, said he would like to pay a tribute to the splendid honour board, which was a credit to Sandgate, whose residents must feel proud of the large number of names appearing on it. Referring to the League, of which he had the honour to be a member, Mr. Foil said the primary reason , why the. League was formed was that the returned soldiers realised that the party politicians would try to exploit them, and they did not intend to be exploited. They wanted to get rid of the rotten party system in Australian politics. (Applause.) The objects of the League were as follow : — 1. To do all in our power to win and bring the war to an early and successful conclusion. 2. To protect the interests of all ...

SPARKS FROM MR. HUGHES' ANVIL. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 20 October 1916

SPARKS FROM MR. HUGHES' ANVIL. ' There can be no safety for a demo cracy. unless its citizens are prepared to die in its defence.' ' We could not exist for 24 hours but for Great Britain.' 'Democracy had been a plant of tender growth, and throughout all ages it had grown but to perish. Everywhere it had perished before the march of military despotism.' ' Should Britain be defeated, ther« is an end to the national and political aspirations of Australia, and where we have been rulers, we shall be servile dependents.' ' Despite the efforts of certain wild extremists, who have, by the apathy of the rank and file, captured unionism, i [ believe this great state of Queensland I will ring true on October 28th.' ' We hear from the lips of some men, much talk of the sanctity of human life. They mean the sanctity of their own lives.' The men who now, in this supreme crisis of the nation's history, con demn Federal Ministers who have the courage of their convictions, are the very men, who, pre...

STATE GOVERNMENT AND RETURNED MEN. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 20 October 1916

STATE GOVERNMENT AND RETURNED MEN. The State Government is treating returned men, who were employed in the civil service, previous to enlistment, rather generously in the matter of leave. They are paying these men for time in lieu of leave due to them during their absence, to which, after all, they are justly entitled. This concession, on the part of the Govern ment, was due, in a great measure, to the work of the Returned Soldiers and Patriots' National League, which has always been keenly interested in the welfare of returned soldiers.

THE ARMY OF DEMOCRACY. Glass Distinctions Cast Aside. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 20 October 1916

the army of democracy. Class Distinctions Cast Aside. There has never before been such aa army in the field as that which is upholding our Empire's fight for liberty in the present war. The world at large lias not realised it as yet, and writers persist in describing it in the same terms as they have spoken of armies in former campaigns. The men are depicted as uneducated yokels, un grammatical, low boors, led by gentle men of superior birth and training. Nearly every war-book reviewed en deavours to give the idea that a British private soldier is separated by a broad gulf of education and breeding from Jus officers. Probably it was so with the magnificently trained little army of professional soldiers which accompanied General French to the field of glory, at the outset of the war. Somehow or another, though no finer fighters ever existed, soldiering has never been a popular business with the sound minded British folks. It attracted the adventurous rather than the sober iisposition...

FIHELLY AT IT AGAIN SINN FEINISM IN AUSTRALIA. "THE WET LITTLE ISLAND " [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 20 October 1916

FIHELLY AT IT AGAIN SINN FEINISM IN AUSTRALIA. 'THE WET LITTLE ISLAND 'J f||Mr. John Fihelly, Assistant Minister lor J ustice, save the mark, is a glutton for fight. Not satisfied with arousing a storm of resentment by his disloyal utterances at the Irish Club last month, he followed up those treasonable re marks at Paddington on Tuesday night. The report of- that speech, as it appeared in the v Standard,' which is a champion of the jcause Fihelly has espoused, is probably correct, and we take it, will not be refuted by him. It reads as follows : — »' Mr. Fihelly discussed the question trom a greater Empire aspect, arguing that the in terests of the great British people all over the world would' be better served by the development of the primary industries of Australia. It was ad mitted by all parties that Australia was the most valuable1 prize of the Empire's possessions* and, if that were so, would it not be better to build up a greater nation, a broader Empire, than confine our o...

RETURNED SOLDIERS AND PATRIOTS' NATIONAL LEAGUE. Legislative Councillor Approves. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 20 October 1916

RETURNED SOLDIERS AND PATRIOTS' NATIONAL LEAGUE. Legislative Councillor Approves. A member of the Legislative Council, the Hon. A. A. Davey, is a staunch supporter of the Returned Soldiers and Patriots' National League. At a meeting in Sandgate, held under the auspices of the League, on Monday night, Mr. Davey said he was very pleased to be present to support the objects of the League in question. He was in accord with their aims, for he had been long enough in politics to understand the absolute rottenness of party Government. He had always been opposed to party politics. He thought that the League, if they took upon themselves the task of working out a national policy, nay, an imperial policy, would be rendering a very great service to Australia. The time had arrived when the people should take the reins of Government into their hands. He was strong in the belief that this war would cause the men in the trenches to regard each other in a much more favourable light than in the past...

INCITING AUSTRALIANS TO DISOBEY. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 20 October 1916

INCITING AUSTRALIANS TO DISOBEY. Mr. J. S. Collings is one of those fire-brands who is not happy unless he is, like the Irishman who, on visiting America, told a. native that no matter what Government was in power, he was ' agin it.' This fire-eating leader of the anti-conscriptionists, -who has been endowed by a kind providence with more than ordinary powers of speech, has, during the short period that has elapsed since the proclamation calling up all eligible men, been foremost in advising them not to obey that call. It is men of his type who would be the first to hand over Australia to the Huns, if he thought that by doing so he could keep his job. But he forgets that the Government which he voted into power has full control over all Australian citizens, and has the right to intern him and all his unpatriotic crew, if he goes too far in his efforts to incite young men to revolt against the constituted authority.

THE NATIONAL SPIRIT. Party Politics Condemned. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 20 October 1916

THE NATIONAL SPIRIT. Party Politics Condemned Mr. Robert Wells, General Organising Secretary of the Returned Soldiers and Patriots' National League, speaking at Sandgate, on Monday night last, explained, as far as possible, in the limited time at his disposal, the aims and objects of the League. He said the League had been formed because the returned soldiers realised that in the Dolitical life of the Australian people, the party politician stood condemned. It had been conclusively proved that the more of party politics Australia had, the more her progress would be retarded. The Returned Soldiers and Patriots' National League was formed with the primary object of trying to instil into the Australian people a more national spirit, instead of the more individual selfish spirit. The organisation commenced by putting five items on its programme. The first part of the programme, to do everything in their power to bring the war to an early and successful conclusion, had already been dealt...
