REMOUNTS RETURN. Fifty-three of the Australian Re mount Section, commanded by Capt. M'Callum, returned home by mail train on Tuesday night. It is under stood that the contingent which had been on service in Egypt, will be demobilised. ♦♦♦ Major Sabine, who has been appointed Staff Officer for returned soldiers, in the stead of Captain Tiddy, is . a well known Brisbane officer. He went to Egypt with No. 1 A.G.H. as Quarter master, and was in succession Quarter master of Helouan Convalescent Home and No. 1 Auxiliary Hospital, Helio polis. When the latter unit proceeded #to France, Major Sabine went with it, but was taken ill, and invalided home. The ' Leader ' is pleased to note that . the Defence Department is not for getting returned officers, though it ' would be better pleased if the returned soldiers were not so persistently over looked. It was rumoured last night that the stock of coal possessed by the Railway Department Was sufficient to last till Saturday next, and no longer. ...

THE GLORIOUS VOLUNTARY SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 1 December 1916

'V ▼ THE GLORIOUS VOLUNTARY * SYSTEM. At present the voluntary enlistments of men for war service are falling short of the requirements by several thous ands a month. — News item. The Prime Minister, when he planked his conscription proposals before the people, evidently knew a thing or two. He certainly hit the nail on the head when he told us that the voluntary system had failed, but, unfortunately, for that same ragged voluntary system, William's methods of reinforcing the army did not meet with the approval of the majority of Australians. The defeat of the conscription issue has alienated hundreds, perhaps thousands, of men. who would, under a properly organised system of voluntary enlist ment, have come up to scratch. The shortage of volunteers is due more to the result of the Referendum than to any inherent abhorrence of military service on the part of' Australians. The military authorities realise that unless something is done,, and done quickly, there will be no alternative ...

RYAN, PLAY THE GAME. "Macartneg" Bill Waste of Time. PARLIAMENT AND THE WHOLE COMMUNITY. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 1 December 1916

RYAN, PLAY THE GAME. ' licartin' -lll Mi at Tint. PARLIAMENT AND THE WHOLE COMMUNITY. The Ryan Government has not, since its election ' to the control of the destinies of Queensland, been remark able for any great degree of foresight or common sense., The leader of the party, Mr. T. J. Ryan, is a very nice mail personally, but experience has proved that men possessing charming personalities are, as a rule, rather weak when placed in a position reauirine tact and diplomacy. Mr. Ryan is not a strong leader, and his weakness was never so well exemplified as when he intro duced the Constitution Act Amendment Bill, a Bill which this paper regards as a. measure introduced as a means of ventilating the spite of one man against another. It will be remembered that Mr. Macartney, the member for. Too wopg; indulged in some rather trenchant criticism of Mr. Ryan's actions in connection with his position as Attorney , General. Mr. Macartney may have been indiscreet in his method of dealing with ...

THOSE MALTESE LABORERS! [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 1 December 1916

THOSE MALTESE LABORERS ! Sydney, Saturday. — At the Water, Police Court to-day, before Mr. Love, S.M., eight Maltese were charged with being prohibited, immigrants found within the Commonwealth. There was some more, but the fact that they were charged with being prohibited immigrants Is enough. Most people, except those who voted ' No ' will, remember the terrible outcry about the Maltese laborers. The antis' reckoned that Australia would hp. flooded with Maltese, or Chows, or Japs, or Javanese, or something. It was like the story of the little boy who told his father there were millions of cats on the back fence the night previous. The millions ultimately boiled themselves down to the family Tom and the cat next door. Same thing happened with the poor hundred Maltese. They dwindled and dwindled until they were a division of eight — and they were prohibited immigrants. It was on the harmless — and not by any means cheap — Maltese, that the anti leaders based their fool argument that...

THE MEN WHO TAKE RISKS AND THE MEN WHO MAKE BIG PROFITS [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 1 December 1916

THE MEM WHO TAKE RISKS AND THE MEN WHO fl«AKE BIG PROFITS It seems to' this paper tlmt all the arguments raised' for and against the right of those, concerned in the coal industry, to hold . up the supply of coal to the community, rather miss the point. It is freely admitted that the owners of the mines, monopolists in the absolute sense of the word, are neither patriotic hor generous in their attitude. It is admitted ;t]iat they have done little pr .nothing, save pay taxes, to help win the war. They might help, to win it by foregoing all war time profits, as ' the ' Mail ' suggests, or they might hand over the mines to the * Government, and go to the front themselves, if tijey were fit for service, which the majority are undoubtedly not. The ' Leader ' holds no brief for either the owner or the miner, but it does claim that in a time of national peril, when hundreds of thousands of our brave lads are risking lifje and limb every day for a paltry 5s., men who are not taking one-tent...

R.S, AND P.N. LEAGUE AND R.S.A. ARE NOT ANTAGONISTIC. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 1 December 1916

R.S, AND P.N. LEAGUE AND R.S.A. ARE NOT ANTAGONISTIC. It has been persistently stated that the two bodies of returned soldiers, known as the Returned Soldiers and Patriots' National League and the Returned Soldiers' Association are antagpnistic, and that considerable friction exists between the two bodies. Th e ' Leader ' wishes to bring to the notice of the public in general, and returned soldiers in particular that, any person circulating such statements, is doing so with an ulterior motive, and with the object of creating strife where the two bodies should be friendly. The Returned Soldiers and Patriots' National League has never been, and is not, antagonistic to the Returned ?Soldiers' Association. The League is paying strict attention to their - own aims and objects, which are purely political, and contain in their national programme preference to those who have fought for the Empire. The League would be obliged to sym pathisers, if they would give them any information regardin...

WOMAN, THE CONSOLER. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 1 December 1916

WOMAN, THE CONSOLER. In the old days we said : ' For men must work and women must weep,' but to-day we look to woman rather as our consoler, and by no means only as regards the amenities. Modern war differs from all wars in history in this one feature'; that war is now an absolutely national affair ; national for i both sexes, whereas formerly it was the concern purely of the professional armies and those who catered for them. [ And it is here that modern woman Iis called upon to play her military part — a man's part. We have seen with amazement, the cool, quiet, efficient way she has taken up her new duties. She is only beginning her activities. If the -war lasts through next winter, j tens of thousands more women will \ be ' called up ' to serve their country. That they will do their bit, we know, j Soon half the businesses in the land will be run by women, for more and i more they must displace the men as the latter are required on active service. i The war will bring both sexes ...

THE FOREIGN ELEMENT. Enemy Aliens Should Be Interned. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 1 December 1916

THE FOREIGN ELEMENT. Enemy Aliens Should Be Interned. A famous German once remarked, apropos of the race antagonism existent between Britain and Germany, that 'we (meaning Germans) will never be gentlemen, while you will always be fools.' If a fool is not merely an j individual who acts the goat, but one . who is so blind to his own interests that he allows others to ride roughshod oyer him, then the British race is certainly a race of fools.

BACK TO THE LAND. Farms for Soldiers. Government's Land Policy. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 1 December 1916

m BACK TO THE LAND. Farms for Soldiers. Government's Land Policy. The generally accepted idea that the agricultural land available in Australia is- confined to a narrow coastal^ belt has been often dispelled by authoritative writers, yet the delusion dies hard. It has long been known to those whose knowledge of Australia is the outcome of a wide experience that the land available for closer settlement is almost unlimited, that the strip of rich volcanic ? ;i _ i ? . j-i ? ? i ? i i ? ± _ j.: .Li ? bun -uuiig uie beauuiiiu uui a. utile , of the great areas awaiting the plough, j It would not be unreasonable to assume that the British people with their genius for colonising, and the traditions of generations of yeomen behind them, I should be the first people ? to take in hand the Australian wilderness, and transform it into a land flowing with milk and honey . Unfortunately, despite the efforts of the early settlers, to make Australia a great producing country, their successors have ...

A DEPARTMENT WHICH PREFERS THE MAN WHO STAYED AT HOME. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 1 December 1916

A DEPARTMENT WHICH PREFERS THE MAN WHO STAYED AT HOME. Apart from its job of keeping Billzac well supplied with grub and clothes and cash and reinforcements, the sole function of the Australian Defence Department seems to be the provision of nice, snug, well-paid billets for the men who didn't go. The latest proof of the Department's desire to clasp cf -1 X Am +/~\ if r ni-nrvln Kr\rrvM-» I -ai iiuiug iu no -xxii|jxc uuouiii, is the appointment as recruiting officers, of men who acted as military registrars under the Hughe?' proclamation. This paper would like to know whether the principle of preference to returned ?soldiers is the dinkum thing, or merely a gigantic bluff to lull Billzac into the belief that all will be well when he drags his weary carcase back to Aus tralia. * * * «i« The avowed policy of Pearce and his advisers has always been ' preference to returned soldiers ' ; the real policy has been ' preference to the man with the biggest pull, or push.'
