SOLDIERS DETERMINED. [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 1 April 1919

SOLDIERS DETERMINED. l . * Last Sunday, the 5th instant, we had the pleasure to participate, at . the soldiers' meeting in the Exhibition grounds. The Diggers were quiet bu.t determined. There was little speechyfying. The men realise that the time for talking is over ; action is needed and' the dignified behaviour of the men plainly showed that they have made up their minds to 'see' it through.' : : ' Y After the meeting there. Was a march from the Exhibition grounds to the North Quay. Never before have' the men of the A.I.F. marched- quieter .and with more perfect dis cipline through the streets of Brisbane than on this occasion. The discipline was selfimpos ed, the step was firm and faces set. It was -the spirit; of .the A.I.F. in the olden days when 'marching orders' were out. ?????' . 'The 'Diggers' are .marching! For Australia's Freedom, Progress and Prosperity ! While a large number of our legislators are N dining at first-class hotels in various parts of the world those 'dete...

Democratic Government. [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 1 April 1919

Democratic gwerismt, The House of Lords threw out Lloyd George's land-tax bill — quite correctly diagnosing that measure as the beginning of the end of the agreeable privileges its noble members had en jpyed immemorably. Jn the contest that en dued the noble members were signally beaten and reduced to the hamstrung condition of hav ing only a suspensive veto upon legislation. Their opposition can hold up a bill for three years. At the end of that time, if the , Com mons insist upon it, the bill becomes law in spite of the Lords. . Theoretically the British Government is now the most democratic in the world. A House of Commons directly elected by universal suf-' frage is the sole repository of governmental power, except that a hereditary upper cham.; bei*, which enjoys rather slight consideration or influence with the public,, can hold up a mea sure for thrge years. . v . But Lloyd George intends to supplant the hamstrung House of Lords with an upper chamber composed of leading citiz...

ANOTHER CASE OF HONOURING THE PLEDGE(?) [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 1 April 1919

ANOTHER CASE OF HONOURING THE , PLEDGE (?) A well-seasoned sergeant-major w&o didn't , go to the war has been given the cushy job of journeying to France with the charger which the Defence Department presented to General Pau. The Department excuses its selection on the ground that the s.m. would have enlisted had the Department allowed him to. That is quite possible. But he didn't enlist, and that is the end of it. A hundred thousand men might have done the things that have won the V.C. if they had been given the chance; but it didn't come their way, so they don't get the V.C. A thousand other employers may be sure' that men who stayed at home would have gone if they could, but that won't excuse them giv ing preference to those men over the fellows who did go. The Defence Department can be depended on to give the wrong lead nine times out of ten.— Sydney 'Bulletin,' 13/3/19. Compare the above with instructions issued by the Department of Defence, Melbourne, on January 23, 19...

War Service Homes. EXPENDITURE OF £90,000,000. [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 1 April 1919

War Service Homes. ' EXPENDITURE OF £9^0,000,000. According to Press reports ;'tliel- estimated cost of launching the War Service' Homes' scheme will - entail an expenditure of £80,000,000 to £90,000,000. .A nice ? sum in- \ deed. The powers that be go round spending money as easily as it were sea water. We have nothing against homes for soldiers. In deed we consider it; a laudable enterprise. But at the same time we cannot forget 'that some thing . ought to be done for the men who are!, crying for the right to work and that our first; effort should be directed towards relieving unemployment. Will Senator Millen ever realise that the establishment mi new: indus tries and a generous land settlement policy is of greatest importance to rthe digger and tof ,, the Qornmunity to-day? * f f ? ?

GET IT? [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 1 April 1919

GET IT? 'How did that private ever get in here?' asked a corporal of 'a captain as he looked at . a boy who seemed to be a physical weakling. 'Walked in backward,' said the captain, 'and the guard thought he was going out.' 'Always keep in with people of influence, my boy,' advised the experienced manabout town. 'That's what I've been doing all my life, and see what a success I am! Did you notice, for instance, the pleased expression on old Lady Wagstaffe's face last night, when I complimented her on her appearance, and said she looked no older than her daughter?' Braid: 'Have you found a customer for that gramophone of yours yet?' Wade: 'I have, my boy. I played it for six hours on end the other night. Next day the neighbours formed a committee, and purchased the blamed thing.' ' Jack Black: 'But why do you insist that it's so wrong to marry one's decease4 wife's sister?' Bob Robb: 'It's worse than wrong, old man, it's rank lunacy! Why, it puts a chap in the clutches of his mother-...

HIS FAITH WAS SURE-FOOTED. [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 1 April 1919

HIS FAITH WAS SURE-FOOTED. An old Mississippi negro ,was to be baptized in the river, but when it came his turn he was looking at the watW just beyond the parson and refused. 'Comejright in, my brudder,' said the parson. 'Come ri^ht in.' But the negro kept his eye on the water be yond the parson and still refused. 'Don't like de looks ob dat black object back ob you, par son,' said the negro. 'Maybe alligator.' 'Nonsense,' said the parson. 'Has your faith stumbled? Don't you remember when the whale swallowed Jonah, God Almighty smote him on the back with a red-handled waggon ? whip and the whale cast him up on the sand? Don't you know if your faith is right and an alligator swallows you, he will cast you up on the sand?' , ' JWhereupon the negro said: 'Maybe so, par son, liiaybe so. Parson, you may know whales, but you don't know these Mississippi alliga tors. If ever a Mississippi alligator swallows a negro he go off and go to sleep and forget all about him.'

On her knee; was a diminutive niece, placed there pour les convenances. In the adjoining room, with the door open, were the rest of the company. Finally ? tlie little niece was heard to say in a jealous and very audible voice: 'Auntie, kiss me too.' 'Certainly, dear,' returned Ethel. 'But you' should say twice, dear; two is not grammar.'
