THE CURSE OF PARTY POLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 17 November 1916

THE CURSE OF PARTY POLITICS. Mr. Collins : I have just as much . British blood in my veins as the hon. member. ' My race has made greater ^crrfices than ever the hon. . member has ma-de.' - Mr. Roberts : What is your race ? 1 Mr. Collins : I am a true bred / Englishman, and I think you are a mongrel. 'this is the sort of tripe that passes Jjor debate in the Queensland Parlia ment. Politics in Queensland has : i . r* . ? . generated into a bear garden, where one side is out jto pass measures for the sole benefit of a class, and the other side is intent on playing the fool. The language is that of party politicians, , not of gentlemen. Honest debate is a relic of primordial days. We are come to the day of the professional squealer, whose only qualification to represent a constituency is an inherent, or ac quired ability to talk by the hour. Tufjm was a time when every man who Mat in the Legislative Assembly possessed more than the average share ui iir ellect, even if his political vie...

MRS. ANDERSON'S VISIT TO SYDNEY Australian Red Cross Industries. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 17 November 1916

MRS. ANDERSON'S VISIT TO SYDNEY Australian Red Cross Industries. I There are very few people in Brisbane, few, that is, who are interested in Red Cross work, and certainly no soldiers, who do not know who Mrs. Anderson is. Every soldier loves the Red Cross Society, the 'good old. Red Cross,' as they call this' great society, which xnowing no nation, Dnngs comiort and help wherever there are sick and weary soldiers. And so it is that all returned soldiers kriow' Mrs. Anderson, the Hon. Secretary of the Queensland r- . Branch of tKe Red Cross Society, who has. recently' returned from Sydney. I And because of that, readers of this \ soldiers' paper, will be interested to f hear ©I her doings in the Southern city. They were stirring times to those three. weeks during the early part of which the great Referendum issue was being fought. In talking to one of our valiant women workers, one did not care to dwell on a subject so distasteful to loyal Australians. Rather, one drew Mrs. Anderson...

POLITICAL PELLETS. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 17 November 1916

POLITICAL PELLETS. Sufficient unto the party is the majority thereof. The most potent word in the party, politicians dictionary — ' portfolio.' You can play the Tory game some of the time and the Labor game some of the time ; but if you attempt to r play the party game all the time you iall in the soup. — (.Lincoln revised). Thei Referendum result has shown that the battle was not fought on, a clear-cut, honest issue. Had such been the' case, the anti-conscription cause would have been lost. Not once during the campaign was ' the cause of voluntary , enlistment advocated by the anti-conscription speakers. National. Party : The people respon sible for supplying black diamonds to the community have two alternatives : To continue supplying the commodity, and thus keep the wheels of industry turning, is one of them. To prolong indefinitely a state of industrial war throughout the Commonwealth, is the other. No man with a grain of sense would choose the latter course, conse quently, it i...

JAPAN'S PROSPERITY. The wonderful trade prosperity now being enjoyed by Japan has been j responsible for a. great accumulation of gold in the country of our Eastern Ally. Japanese financiers have been quick to take advantage of the favour -L ? 3 ? T ? ? ? J auic Lienu ui eAuiicuigc, -uiu nave brought back many foreign obligations. During the first seven months of the present year, approximately 10 per cent, of all Japanese domestic bonds held by foreign capitalists have been repur chased, and more repurchasing is in contemplation. The most favoured of all Japanese obligations at present aro stated to be 5 per cents, in yen. Before the 'war they had been taken up by English capitalists to the extent of over 80,000,000 yen (about £8,000,000), but immediately after the war broke out, something like 2,000,000 yen worth were brought back, though the exchange was., adverse to the country.

WAR'S MYTHS AND FABLES. The Angels of Mons, and Other Stories. Queer Tales Which Live For Ever. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 17 November 1916

WAR'S MYTHS AND FABLES. The Angels of Mom, and Other Stories. Queer Tales Which Live Tor Ever. From time immemorial war has been a fruitful breeder of myths and legends. The present clash of the nations is no exception to the rule. There is the famous instance of the Angels of Mons. This yarn is somewhat similar to one written by the Ettrick Shepherd, generations ago, on tne suDjecx: 01 some Border raid or skirmish. Many of Hogg's graphic phrases, in fact, might have been ' lifted ' in full, and used in some of the descriptions of the modern myth which have been recently penned. Then there is the story of the Russian soldiers who came through Scotland from Archangel. The sublime serious ness with which this tale was accepted soon gave way to laughter, as the ridiculous impossibility became ap parent. There are many people, never theless, who remain convinced as to th- genuineness of both these yarns, which will be duly incorporated, no doubt, in the school books of the future. This ...

HAWKERS AND LICENSES. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 17 November 1916

HAWKERS AND LICENSES. One of the League's members re cently brought under our notice a gross anomaly which exists in the granting of hawkers' licenses. It appears that ?every white man, returned soldier or otherwise, who wishes to peddle fruit or vegetables, is called on to pay a license of 10s. per annum. On appli cation he has to produce references as to character. If he hawks fruit without a license he is liable to a heavy fine. Our informant, who is a returned soldier, complains that Chinese, with whom the whites could not compete on equal terms, are allowed to hawk without a license, and that the same applies to dozens of men whose characters are so bad that they would not be furnished with a license if they tried for a generation. It is said that some of these bad characters have been selling fruit and vegetables for the past ten years, without interference from the licensing authorities, and have been a source of unfair competition vrith honest men who have obtained licenses....

HOME SERVICE BILLETS. And The Boys Who Come Back. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 24 November 1916

HOME SERVICE BILLETS. And The Boys Who Come Back. The Soldier's Lament : What's hap- ? pened to all those brave boys who, after making the biggest sacrifice their country can claim of them,, have returned to the land of their fathers ? Are they all dead, or only sleeping ? They must be one or t'other, otherwise they would be on the warpath against the shirkers, or the authorities who encourage them, who are retained in good home service jobs. I hereby register my emphatic protest ncrpindt flip wn-vr rptiirnpfl mpn are being treated. Every returned man who has done his ' bit,' and I take it that even those who got no further than Egypt did all they were asked, , knows there are hundreds of lucrative military positions now held by young men who should be at the Front.1 I am not blaming these young men so much as the people who hold down their jobs for them, on the pretext that they cannot find sufficient returned, soldiers to fill the vacancies. The excuse won't hold water; as the aut...

NATIONAL SENTIMENT AND ENEMY TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 24 November 1916

NATIONAL SENTIMENT AND ENEMY TRADE. A German professor named 'Manes, during a perigrination of the various Australian States before the war, described the people as ' great admirers of their country, but not intensely patriotic from the viewpoint of national sacrifice.' He had lots more to say of the people who are supposed to be supporting Billzac, but he struck the right chord when he told them they were not prepared to sacrifice every thing for the Fatherland. Yes, the average Australian admires his country right, enough, but only for the short i hours and high wages it provides him with. The capitalist who imports like j the deuce is not an average Australian. ! Mostly he is not a native, but a representative of some foreign business, whose only interest in Australia lies in the amount of hard cash it can rake out of the country. It is this penchant of the Australian for short hours and high wages that has provided the importing fiend with an opening as wide as Port Phillip Head...

THE INDUSTRIAL HOLD-UP. A Loaded Pistol at the Head of Society. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 24 November 1916

THE INDUSTRIAL HOLD-UP. i LoaM Pistil it tls Ileal of Sotlitg. Bullt, Tuesday. — The ballot pro posal was rejected at Bulli and at the Maitland district meetings. The miners demand eight hours, and will not be satisfied with anything else. As this paper pointed out in a previous issue, the claims of the miners are to a certain extent justified — in peace time. Everyone knows that a miner's work is not the least arduous in the world, and that,' although he is well paid, he is- not over-paid. Most ? ? _1__ 1— 4.1^ A,,,~ overyone -usu kiiuvvs iucil ujc nus tralian soldier works about three times as hard, 'takes ten times as many risks, and draws about one-fourth of a miner's pay. Yet he does not strike. Why ? Because he dare- not/ and would not if he dared. Because he is a man who has the welfare of his country at heart, a man to whom self-interest is as nothing compared with the great need of his native land. What manner of men are these miners' ''who,' spurning the aid 'of ' 'an arbi...
