IS CONSCRIPTION POSSIBLE? [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 12 October 1918

IS CONSCRIPTION POSSIBLE? Is conscription still possible in Aus tralia? Anything is possible, so long as Mr. Hughes is Prime Minister. The Labor press in this State dealt fully .with the constitutional points involved shortly after the second referendum. Both Mr. Hughes and Sir William Irvine threatened the people in December last with con scription by revolution. What they meant by their words no man can say. But pre sumably they meant something. On De cember 7 Mr. Hughes used the following intimidatory terms : — ? 'I£ you do not agree with these pro posals, what do you think will happen? Do not think you will go on as before. Do not fall into any such error. (Cheers.) You must not think that in this war you can escape the inevitable. Under this country's laws you can decide whether you will have it this way or that way, and that is all you can do. If you turn down these proposals, I wash my hands of all responsibility, and you take what comes.' We have not forgotten the elegiacs a...

MEN IN WAR. SOME VIVID PICTURES. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 12 October 1918

?HaH [?] A Hungarian officer has Issued a book, ''lien in War,' in which he draws_Bome graphic pictures. '? ThV'fblfowing are ex tracts: — ? ? ' . 'These 'Men in War' suffered chiefly, perhaps, because they felt theirs to be a useless cause, their marches and bloody attacks to be the mere scheming of remote superiors, their deaths and wounds for in terests not their own. 'A brave Englishman has well ex pressed it — 'God, think of having to die fpr what they stand for!' But Latzko speaks mpre than for Austria alone. He speaks as a man; he has felt the deepest suffering of the soldiers in. this war, worse than a. lost leg or a, shattered body, the torturel of the thing seen that cannot be forgotten,! the horror that will not die.

AUSTRALIA'S "DIGGER." GENESIS OF A NAME. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 12 October 1918

^mM^& ^iGeiP GENESIS OF A NAME. ? ? An officer just back -from, the Front relates that the first- question asked by an- Americanised German prisoner was, 'Say, why do they call the Australians 'Diggers'?' and .he had to admit that he did not know. Many other people have asked for an explanation. Inquiry amongst those recently from the trenches shows that the origin of the expression is vague. 'There are various definitions, but few of them agree. The general belief^is that the name, like Topsy, 'just growed.' In 1914: the Australian soldier was fre quently referred- to as 'Tommy Corh stalk.'^ After the Gallipoli landing he be came 'Bill Anzac,1' and later the whole of the forces were simply Anzacs, described as 'great diggers.' Among themselves the men know each other as 'mate' and 'cobber.' When severe fighting in France had so changed the personnel of battalions that only a small proportion of the sur vivors had ever seen Anzac Cove, it is said that the modest new recruits...

A WORKERS' SONG. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 12 October 1918

A WORKERS' SONG. When the boacon-light of LiO'enty is flam ing o'er the earth ; When the Resurrection Morning of the toiler has its birth; When broken are the idols in the brute god Mammon^ shrine; And Freedom stamps Humanity with marks of th^;; pi vine ;. Will we pride ourselves, my brothers, on the deeds we ?will have done 'Gainst the meanest rule that ever wrought oppression 'neath the sun? Or stained shall we be, fouler than the old-time Pharisee, For our attitude to Labor in its efforts to be free? We have seen the fight for Freedom waged by valiant men and few; Have our hands been stretched to aid them — they,- the. good, and staunch and true? Or, 'midst Moloch-Mammon's minions — in his infamy enrolled — Have we stoned the prophet-rebels 'gainst the blighting rule of gold? Oh! the day draws ever nearer; nay, 'tis even drawing high, When righteous rage at robbery may rend the earth and sky. That day brings retribution or reward to you and me ?

WHAT IS SEDITION ? [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 12 October 1918

WHAT IS SEDITION ? 'Sedition' in New South Wales, as em* bodied, in Premier Holman's amazing measure, may lie briefly summarised as a legislative measure to enable the Govern ment to disfranchise those who are ob« noxious to it. What sedition really is in law is extremely 'hard ' to define. In 'his 'History of the Criminal Law,' : Judge Stephens says: 'As to sedition, I do riojt think that any such offence is known to English law.' Jurists manage, hdWcv^iJ, to convict for seditious' language' aria seditious writing without being able to tell us what sedition is. Thin legal subtlety Is very nice; 'Sedition' is of Latin derivaj tion, arid might be translated' as 'dissehj- sion or subversion or attempt to disturb the trahquiiity of ? the State.' If no*);. without defining sedition any closer thaiji Judge Stephens, who -'appeared to hold that, though sedition did not exist, sedi tious language and seditious writing could, legislators frame a Sedition BUI which, though still avoiding: th...

No organisation will be .permitted to hoi&t any-other em blem but those specified, unless the spe cial permission of the Minister for De fence has first been obtained. Flags to be prescribed in the regulations as those which might b© flown would be those of the British Empire, including the United Kingdom of Great Britain, the Dominions, also those of the Allies, and that known as the Papal Flag.
