THE BALKAN CAMPAIGN. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 3 November 1916

THE BALKAN CAMPAIGN. It is a long time since news of any importance was heard from the terri tories in which the Russian Caucasus army is operating. After the Grand Duke Nicholas smashed his way to Erzerurn arid Trezibond, in a truly brilliant campaign, Australian people got into the habit of imagining that he was going to perform miracles, that the downfall of Turkey Was imminent, and the war as good as over. It is four months since Erzerurn was taken, and the Grand Duke has made very little progress. The progress in Mesopo tamia is almost as infinitesimal, arid the British force in the Sinai Peninsula is seemingly content to' let the enemy take the offensive. All of which goes to prove, in the mind of the, writer, that the War Office has at length realised the futility of dissipating the strength of the army, and consequently, of the nation, in such side issues as the Mesopotamia and Egyptian cam paigns. The wai will not be won there, so why concentrate large forces which can be i...

NEWS IN BRIEF. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 3 November 1916

NEWS IN BRIEF. For some time during last month, the position of the Roumanians was not regarded as particularly safe. Now that the Russians have reinforced them in considerable numbers, the outlook in the Balkans is very much brighter. Roumanian successes continue in Transylvania, where they have re ceived strong Russian reinforcements. They advanced five and a half miles in the Alt Valley, north- of Salatruk. The steamer Angeliki, conveying volunteers to Salonica, was torpedoed on Monday last. Fifty were drowned. The ship was torpedoed without wani ng, but was beached by the captain. Next of kin will be henceforth able to have conferred on them decoration which were to have been given to dead heroes. The premier German aviator, Lieut. Boelcke, has been killed in an air fight. The Swedish newspapers, without exception, condemn Germany's attitude regarding her new ruthless submarine policy as inhuman, and sympathises with Norway, whose measures against submarines are the same as her ...

THE IRRESPONSIBLES AND THE RESPONSIBLES. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 3 November 1916

THE IRRESPQNSIBLES AND THE * - RESPONSIBLES. This paper is beginning to have grave doubts as to the truth of the old saw, ' You can lead a horse to water, ✓ but you can't make him drink.' It fails in its application to modern party politicians, anyway. Look at the case of T. J. Ryan, Premier of the State of , Queensland. Lots of people believe that Ryan is at heart in favour of compulsory military service abroad. Anyway, he publicly announced, before he returned to caucus control, that Australia was in duty bound to make every human endeavour to bring the war to a close. That was in pre conscription days. Since the Queens land Labor Government decided, as a body, to go its hardest against the Hughes' proposals, Thomas J. Ryan has given his half-hearted support to ^ the apostles of anti-conscription. Ryan's attitude throughout the big debate is a strong argument against party government. The curse of the _party system is that it allows men who are supposed to represent the people, to...

STRANGLING AUSTRALIA. Another Big Coal Strike. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 3 November 1916

STRANGLING AUSTRALIA. Another Big Goa! Strike. Whether the coal miners or the colliery proprietors are to blame ' for the great coal strike in the South, this paper is not prepared to say. If. as the proprietors allege, they fixed a conference for Thursday, the action of the men in downing tools was rather high-handed. If, on the other hand, the employees asked for a conference on or before the 28th October, and heard -nothing further, even then, the men were not justified in striking. A strike at such a time, when it will mean a partial or total dislocation of Australian trade, cannot be justified. This paper holds no brief for either employee or employer ; but it strongly condemns any attempt by either party ! to hold up one of the most important of our industries. Words cannot express the disgust we feel over such monstrous and criminal neglect on the part of those engaged in the industry, to settle a question that has already been con sidered and adjusted by the New South Wales ...

POTTED LAUGHTER. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 3 November 1916

POTTED LAUGHTER. Too many cooks spoil the policeman. The folly of being in love is its insecurity. Let us be thankful for our lot, even if it ain't a lot. Sympathy without relief, is like mustard without beef. Do women grow old, or merely Catch up with their age ? rrm« or ic Ai+liAr a errant incnif nr AYUbblub o* wa an affectionate familiarity. A fair exchange is no robbery, but the trouble is to find one. A new opera often goes a long way towards settling old scores. The voice of love, matrimony ; the voice of the divorce court, alimony.

MOUTH OF ZEEBRUGGE A WALL OF FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 3 November 1916

MOUTH OF ZEEBRUGGE A WALL OF FIRE. Zeebrugge, the western eye of the German navy, on the Belgian coast, has recently assumed an importance in the German naval scheme second only to that occupied by the lonely rock that effectively guards all entran ces to the Bight of Heligoland.

ALIENS AGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 3 November 1916

ALIENS AGAIN. It has come to our- notice that a man of German extraction has been placed in charge of Staghorn Hospital, Southport. The position taken by. this man was held by Sergt.-Major Goode, a very popular officer. The patients are, naturally, incensed at what they deem an insult to their nationality, and are giving, voice to their sentiments in no uncertain manner. As the men are well aware, however, they cannot do anything collectively, as any move in that direction would be contrary to the regulations. This paper will, however, endeavour to have the matter investigated. AAA

"YES" STATES SHOULD BE CONSCRIPT. Senator's Outrageous Statements [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 3 November 1916

'YES' STATES SHOULD BE CONSCRIPT. Senator's Outrageous Statements When he heard, the result of the initial returns on Saturday last, Senator „ Gardiner ventured the outrageous opinion that those States which voted 'Yes' should be conscripted, whilst those which turned the issue down should be allowed to go scot free. Senator Gardiner is either a jester, or he is a lunatic. That any man could seriously suggest that the people who voted ' Yes ' should be compelled to go and fight for those who don't want to go, is not evidence of sanity. (Fred. R. Brown, Zillman Rd., Hendra.) AAA

GERMANY'S FIGHT FOR EXISTENCE. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 3 November 1916

GERMANY'S FIGHT FOR EXISTENCE. - m . a When the German High Command realised that they had little chance of carrying out their plans of conquest, they tried another tack. They entered on a big Press campaign in their own and neutral countries, and the burden of their cry was, ' we. are fighting for our very existence as a nation, against ouwi 'uuotiupmyus enemies as xi»ngianu. and Russia, but more particularly against England.' j||That they entered this war with the avowed object of plundering those nations they regarded as their enemies is pretty ; well proved by a corps order found on a German prisoner captured by the British recently. The order ran as follows : — ' The troops are to be informed of the importance of financially draining \ occupied territory. Officers must set the men an example of their patriotic duty.' Ever since the war began, the Germans have thieved everything they could lay their acquisitive hands upon. They have erected plunder into a religion. They have des...
