HUNGRY AND SLEEPLESS GERMANS [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 3 November 1916

HUNGRY AND SLEEPLESS GERMANS j ' Especially significant is the dis closure of the lack of food now in the army a,nd navy,' writes an investigator into the blockade conditions of Ger many. A reservist, writing to his wife says : 'I am going into- the trenches, but I am very glad, for then I shall get decent food.' A letter found on one of the crew of a German torpedo boat, declared: 'I cannot sleep on account of hunger. . . . The treat ment here is only fit for swine, and not for soldiers.' Meat and fat are the commodities which are most scarce ; rations are not far removed from starvation point, and there seems to be grave doubt whether even this modicum is within the reach of everyone. ♦♦♦ Mr. Weston, managing director of the Outridge Printing Co. Ltd., has received the following letter from Arthur Nicholson, who was well-known in Brisbane sailing circles. Mr. Nic holson writes from 'Somewhere in Belgium ' : — I received your letter dated 12th July, and was very pleased to get it. ...

WHAT A "NO" VOTE WILL MEAN. The Alternative to Compulsion. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 3 November 1916

WHAT A ' NO ' VOTE WILL MEAN. The Alternative to Compulsion. It is rather too early in the day to forecast with any degree of certainty the ultimate result of the Referendum vote. Though the anti-conscriptionis.ts have polled a majority of the votes, there are still some hundreds of thousands to be counted, including the absentee votes, which are as likely as not to reverse the positions. Whether the final figures spell victory for ' Yes ' or ' No,' however, it is obvious that the bulk of Australia s population ] Strongly disapproves of any attempt to compel the shirkers to wake to a sense of their national responsibility. Mr. Ryan, leader of the Government -which contributed in no small measure to the fact, that the ' No ' vote was so large in this State, ;says the Empire has not been turned down. On the contrary, says this ingenuous Labor leader, Australia is united in her pur pose, to do everything that is possible to bring the war to a successful con clusion. It is really incumb...

JOIN THE NATIONAL PARTY. What the R.S. & P.N. League Stands for [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 3 November 1916

JOIN THE NATIONAL PARTY. What the R.S. & P.M. League Stands for There have been several coalition (Governments in the history of the .Australian -Commonwealth, but not one of them succeededin making history or giving a definite lead to the people they represented. It is becoming increasingly apparent to every Austra lian elector that the day of party Government is drawing to a close, ior the period of the war, at all events. In the Mother State, there is talk of a coalition Government,- and it has been hinted more than once that Mr. Hughe$ -will probably coalesce with the Oppo- v -sition. That would be his safest plan, as the result of the Referendum has proved conclusively that an appeal to -the country would lose him his seat. But, when all is said and done, the formation of coalition Governments in both Commonwealth and State political .-arenas would be merely a temporary measure, designed to carry on the business of the country with a minimum of friction as long as the w...

THE RIGHT OF FREE SPEECH. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 3 November 1916

THE RIGHT Of FREE SPEECH. lruly, things are coming to a pretty pass in this fair land of ours, when a strong-hearted, patriotic man is threat ened with death for daring to express his views. Freedom of speech is all very fine, but it should not be confined ot one section of the community, and that section in the majority of cases — me most ignorant section. It the anti-conscriptionists claimed the right of free speech, they could not, in all fairness, deny the same right to their opponents. That they have denied the right has been made plain by the attack on Mr. Hughes, the attempted lynching of Mr. Rodgers at Port Fairy, the stoning of Mr. Adamson, the violent treatment of returned soldiers who dared advocate openly the cause which was nearest their hearts. ;Is Australia to be ruled by the moderate types of both Labor and Liberal, or is it to be thrown to the' firebrands of ?Socialism, the I.W.W. incendiaries? When the boys come home, methinks a change will come o'er the scene. Thi...

A TRUE IRISH PATRIOT. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 3 November 1916

A TRUE IRISH PATRIOT. A splendid patriotic utterance by Father Bernard Vaughan : — It seems to me that Britain has passed through three stages in her appreciation of the real meaning of this slaughter of the human race, euphemistically called warfare. In its first stage, she felt she was fighting for her national interests, the highest of which was her national honour — her pledged word to recognise and maintain the integrity, autonomy and independence of Belgium. Then it began to dawn upon Britain that the fight was not merely for national honour, but for national existence itself. She began to realise that the aggressive and arrogant foe with whom she had come to grips, was scheming and campaigning, not only to storm Paris, and capture Petrograd, but invade Britain, arid raid London. England was to be thelKaiser's coaling station. | - Finally, Britain began to wake up to the real inner meaning and signifi cance of the life and death struggle to which she had committed herself and ...

HOLLAND A BREEDING GROUND FOR MILLIONAIRES. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 3 November 1916

HOLLAND A BREEDING GROUND FOR MILLIONAIRES. Although Holland is prepared for any attack upon her sea or land frontier, and can, within 36 hours, place 500,000 men along the strip of land that abuts the German frontier, there is less and less inclination on the part of her people, upper and lower, to enter the war. Holland is as busy as the 24 hours a day can provide work for men, women, and children. A company which distributed the record dividend of 140 per cent, in 1915, paid out only 7 1-2 per cent, in 1914. The Holland- America Line, plying between Rotterdam and New York, which paid 15 per cent, in 1913. and 17 per cent, in 1914, distributed 50 per cent, last year. Another com pany's dividend went from 16 per cent, in 1914 to 100 per cent, in 1915, and three other companies paid 60, 50, and 40 per cent, respectively. The total capital stock of thirteen companies in 1915 was $33,000,000. The general - reserve fund was $6,500,000 in 1915, against $4,700,000 in 1914, and $3,800,000...

PARTY PREJUDICE. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 3 November 1916

PARTY PREJUDICE. Whether it was the fault of Billy Hughes that the greatest political question every placed before the Aus tralian 'people jwas |drag;ged into the whirlpool of party politics, or whether it was the inherent tendency of the Unionist party to view suspiciously any move in which Liberalism takes a hand, is quite uncertain. This paper, however, cannot see how the question, which is as Jfar removed from party politics, as the poles are from one another, was thrashed out on other than party lines. iNeither side judged it from the broad ^national viewpoint, but from their own narrow standard. There are many thousands who judge things by their ^narrow gauge, and balieve that the safety of the State is as nothing compared with the safety of the section to which they belong. As practical proof of how far party bias j^was dragged into this jquestion, let us point to the voting on Saturday last. It will be noticed jby those who read the daily papers, and not merely glance throug...

WHY THE ALLIES AIM AT BAPAUME [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 3 November 1916

WHY THE ALLIES AIM AT BAPAUME ''keep your eyes on Bapaume, which was the first great objective of the Allies in their present drive, for this is how ' one who knows ' describes it : — Once Bapaume is in the hands of the Allies, there is absolutely no means by which the Germans can reach their lines with adequate supplies, lhe good dirt roads of France are excellent as a means of distribution from a nearby base. In other words, they form excellent lateral lines of communication. As main lines, however, on which to place reliance for supplying at least 150,000 men, not only with food, but with the vast amount of necessary shell, they are impossible.

THE BEST IS YET TO BE. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 3 November 1916

ill THE BEST IS YET TO BE. I like the poet's helpful Jphrase, And so I send it thee, A talisman for future days, The best is yet to be. The past has many a happy day, Filled to the brim with glee } But let this cheer you on your way» The best is yet to be. The best is yet to be, 'tis true, As tides are to the sea ? There's happy days in store jor you, The best is yet to be. — -Allan, Junr. ♦♦♦ The State Amusements Tax in South Australia comes into operation on November 1st. In no case does the tax exceed one half-penny for every sixpence, but it should assist materially in helping to replenish the half-empty cash box of the State Treasurer. As a means of increasing revenue, it looks very nice, but the people who should feel the effect of it willfmerely pass it on, and it will fall with, a sickening thud on the bent shoulders of the war-worn, public.

WILL CHINA COME BACK? [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 3 November 1916

WILL CHINA COME BACK? j Wu Ting-Fang, former Minister to United States, who is hopeful of living till he is 150 years of age— he is now about 80 — has just expounded at some length his views on the drastic events that are almost re-shaping the map of China at the present hour. He is not disquieted. ' The coming generation, he says, will do wonders for China. When the young men once take the reins, they will achieve great things. They will change the old thoughts, and treat China with some sun and fresh air. Many of our young men are being educated abroad, es pecially in America.. They can bring back all branches of technical and mechanical and political science, and with this background they must force China into a place among modern nations. The whole future rests on the young men.'

PLAYING THE OLD PARTY GAME. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 3 November 1916

PLAYINQ THE OLD PARTY GAME. Consider for a moment what the wretched system of party politics has done for Australia. A little man named WHie Hughes came back from Britain' with a message, a message fraught With issues Of life and death to the people of this fair continent. He put in fairly and squarely to them. 'Are you willing to giye the Common wealth Government the same power to call ud men for service outside the State as they have to call up men for the defence of Australia in Australia'? The question was not, is not,' a party - one. It is a question fraught with great consequences to the future of the people of the Commonwealth. The reply to it even affec;:s their national honour. But the ravening party poli ticians saw nothing' of national.'import ance in it. They had a month to go before the matter was decided, and they, proceeded to drag the discussion down to the level of the old parlia mentary game, as it is played in Australia to-day. There a,re fourteen Parliaments in A...
