CAUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 10 November 1916
CAUGHT. It pays not to tell lies, even to please the wife. The young spouse of an officer at the front, recently wrote, asking him if he had received a cake she had made and sent him. for his birthday. Knowing that cooking was not one of his wife's accomplishments, and thinking Jo prevent the despatch of a duplicate, he replied that he had enjoyed the cake immensely. And a few days later he heard from his indignant spouse, that the cake, from which the label had become detached, had just been returned to her by the Post Office. The votes of all Australia seem, in great part, but an accessory to the supreme control of Parliament by party politicians. — Bacon (revised version). .

GERHOG HUMOR. Wants Truce to Allow Soldiers to Vote. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 10 November 1916
GERHOG HUMOR. Wants Truce to Allow Soldiers to Vote. A new Legislature will soon be elected in British Columbia, and arrangements are already being made, by which electors in training camps, or on the battle-front in France and Flanders, will be enabled to cast their votes. The young men, who are fighting for the Empire, are not because of that to be deprived of their right of saying how their own Province shall be governed. In Germany, a new Reichstag should be elected in January, and the ' Frankfurter Zietung ' suggests that about that time, the Allies-' should consent to a truce ; in order that the German sobers may go home and vote. A truce implies considerable delay. The Germans are not in so great a hurry as they were in August, 1914. Time was so important then they would not wait. They must hack their way through Belgium, in order to finish France that summer and Russia that autumn . But they have more time now. No one is deeply concerned about their elections ; not even the ...
THE FINANCIAL STATEMENT. Juggling With Figures. A National Government Wanted. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 10 November 1916
THE FINANCIAL STATEMENT. _ Juggling With Figures. A National Government Wanted. Virtually, the whole of this week has been spent in the House, in criti cising the dishonest manner in which the Government has dealt with the States' financial problems during the past year. Opposition members have freely abused the Government for their wanton extravagance, and they have been justified, for the manner in which the Auditor-Genei'al nulled the Finan cial Statement to shreds, proved that the old party methods have been resort ed to in the endeavour to show a surplus when there was actually a huge deficit. Unfortunately, the Opposition could bring forward no alternative method of improving the financial condition of, the State. Anyhow, as party politi cians, that is not their business. They are in the House merely to hurl abuse at the men in power, and to indulge in destructive criticism, which only results' in raising the fur on the backs of the Government members. The use of base recrimin...
THE TRENCH SYSTEM. Why Von Falkenhayn Was Reduced. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 10 November 1916
THE TRENCH SYSTEM. Why Von Falkenhayn Was Reduced. The dismissal of General Von Falken hayn - from the chieftainship of the Imperial General Staff, and the ap pointment of von Hindenburg to take his place, shows that the German High Command recognises what we have called the essential vice of the strategy built on the trench system of defensive warfare. The lines to be held are so wide that the forces holding them grow perilously thin, while the lines of com munication are perilously long- and slen der. The heavy guns on which Ger many relied so much lose half their value : and, worst of all, it is realised that no trenches are impregnable. r To contract the German lines by falling back to the German frontiers themsleves . would be a public acknowledgment of defeat, and might have disastrous effects on German public opinion. Von Falken hayn urged the surrender of the Balkan campaign, the withdrawal of the left section of the Eastern front to a line stretching from the Danube to the ...
THE SOMME OFFENSIVE And German Hopes. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 10 November 1916
THE SOMME OFFENSIVE And German Hopes. ' The Germans,' says the ' Argo naut,' 'undoubtedly believed tv\o things that were not true in connection with Verdun. First, they believed that the flower of the whole French army was engaged at Verdun, and that the rest of the line was manned by mere garrisons. And, secondly, they believed that the French arnty was melting away at Verdun, and that, when the place was finally taken, it would mean the practical end of France. This is not mere supposition, for the Germans have stated both these convictions again and again.' They hoped, indeed, to make the British offensive harmless, by bringing it on prematurely, and to make any offensive on the part of the French impossible, by draining and exhausting the whole French strength at Verdun. And both hopes have visibly gone to wreck. British and French can attack wherever they please, and at as many points as they please. ' They are now doing exactly what the assault upon Verdun was intended to prev...

THE REFERENDUM CAMPAIGN—AND AFTER. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 10 November 1916
THE REFERENDUM CAMPAIGN— AND AFTER. . No one can have taken an active part in the recent Referendum campaign, -without learning a great deal in relation to the political life of the Common -yvealth, and the forces which are behind that life, also the motives which .appear to influence it. It is right that an attempt should be made to asses the value of the forces which appeared to control the electors during . the voting on October 28th. There can be no ?doubt that a large percentage of the ,voters voted ' Yes ' or ' No ' from ?conscientious convictions — say twenty five per cent, on each side. But, apart .from those, what was it that influenced the remainder ? Well, I think that ?the party vote was a fairly heavy one. The Labor voters largely, under the influence of the leaders of their party, voted ' No.' The Liberal voters, largely under a similar influence, voted ' Yes.' While this was true in a general way, there were a large number of defections on both sides from the ! straig...
CHAMPION BOXER DISAPPEARS. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 10 November 1916
CHAMPION BOXER DISAPPEARS. Les Darcy, claimed by many fight experts — we mean ring fight, not the J other kind — as the world's middleweight j champion, disappeared suddenly, early j in the present month. For a long time, ! no one knew where he had slipped ] away to. Then came the news that. 'he j had gone aboard an American-bound steamer one early morning, and quietly vanished from the ken of the Australian boxing world. Coupled with the rum ours that floated round regarding arrangements for an American tour, and the fact that he has just turned 21, this latest furfv seems likely to hatch into fact. If it is true that Darcy has gone to America, is it not up to the military authorities to do something in the way of bringing the wandering one. back home ? Perhaps they don't think he's worth it. After all, although he was something of an advert, to Australia, he is not indis pensable. No boxer is. In fact, Australia could well do without them and the class which fattens on them. ♦♦♦ M...

ACQUITTED. A raw recruit, passing through a, forbidden door at headquarters the other day, was angrily accosted on the other side : 'You mustn't come here ? go into the general room,' he was commanded. ' You don't catch me,' replied the recruit, grinning. ' What do you mean ? ' roared the irate inmate. ' Didn't _ you see the door marked private ? ' ' Yes,' came the retort, ' and that's what I am.'

RETURNED SOLDIERS AND PATRIOTS' NATIONAL LEAGUL Ipswich Branch Committee Meeting. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 10 November 1916
RETURNED SOLDIERS ANDI PATRIOTS' NATIONAL LEAGCJI, Ipswich Branch Committee Meeting. | A meeting of the Committee of the Ipswich Branch of the 'Returned Sol diers and Patriots' National League, was held in St. Paul's Hall, Ipswich, on Monday night last. The Mayor (Ald. Smith) presided. There was a good attendance, including the Ladies' Committee, consisting of the Mayoress, Hiss White, Mrs. Cameron, and Mrs. O'Connor. The meeting was addressed by the Secretary of the League, Mr. H. Spencer Foil, who explained at length the posi tion of the League in the metropolis. He, impressed upon the members the necessity for each one being a mis sionary among his or her- friends. The report of the Branch Secretary, Mr. Crane, disclosed the fact that there were over 150 members in the Ipswich Branch, and that new members were joining every day. Mrs. Cameron spoke at some length on the desirableness of some check being placed on the migration of undesirable persons to this country. Undesirables w...

PARTY POLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 10 November 1916
PARTY POLITICS. How our legislators pass their time in the Queensland House of Assembly : The Secretary for Public Works : This provision will not be applicable to dairy factories. Mr. Bebbington : Then, let the hoii* gentleman take it out. The Secretary for Public Works : I will take you out. Mr. Bebbington : You are not game, big as you are. (Laughter). However, they were there to discuss business, not to indulge in black, ugly talk like that. There is an old saw which runs : ' Let dogs delight to snarl and fight, for 'tis their nature to. We don't, for a moment, wish to make invidious comparisons, but ? . Probably, ere next State elections, the people will have realised how utterly worthless is party Government as a national asset. In the Legislative Assembly last week, Mr. Murphy dropped a remark, in reply to Mr. Fihelly, which, though he may not have realised it, was some what jn the nature of a prophecy. They were discussing the Money Lenders' Bill, when Mr. Fihelly made a ref...
CONTROLLING HUNS. Petition to Prime Minister. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 10 November 1916
CONTROLLING HUNS. Petition to Prime Minister. Now that the Prime Minister (Mr. Hughes) has returned to Australia, the Victorian Anti-German League has decided to urge upon him the necessity of eradicating the Huns from our midst. The members of the League feel that while Mr. Hughes has done a great deal towards killing German trade interest in Australia, there has been some laxity in regard to dealing with the men and women of German birth resident in Australia, who are just as much a menace to the welfare of the Empire as those who are engineering the war from the other side of the world. In order to induce the Prime Minister to deal with these people, the League has decided to circulate for signature,, a petition, asking for the stringent , control of Huns resident in Australia, naturalised or otherwise, and protesting against the employment of Germans, sens of Germans, and naturalised Germans in the army, or in any position where , they can obtain infor mation detrimental to the ...
PRODUCTION AND WEALTH. Foster the Primary Industries. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 10 November 1916
PRODUCTION AND WEALTH. Foster the Primary Industries. If there is one huge mistake that the Labor Administrations of Australia are making, it is their, persistence in 'ignoring the claims of the man on the . land. Elected to Parliament in the majority of cases,' by big city con stituencies, consisting of workers in the secondary industries, the Labor ?Governments of the Commonwealth, are working tooth and nail for the sole benefit of those people who put them an power. Real National Wealth. They know well enough that the ?primary industries constitute the real ?wealth of the v country. Australian ?production . requires encouragement, ?which it has never received from party politicians. The greater the production, the greater the wealth. Instead of fostering the primary industries, and ?spelling the revenue of the State, , by 'natural means, party politicians borrow money and pay big interest for it.' Wise men would borrow as little as possible, and produce as much as possible. If th...
