Ferricks Won't Enlist. The "Eligible" Senator. His Opinion of Hughes. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 8 December 1916

Ferricks Won't Enlist. The 'Eligible' Senator. His Opinion of Hughes. ?Myles Ferricks, Queensland Senator :n ? the. Federal Parliament, has given out to the world his ideas of national duty. He refuses to enlist, although, as he says himself, he is well within the military age. What manner of man is this who, while drawing a big salary as one of the nation's counsellors, not only declares himself opposed ' to voluntary service, but describes the Prime Minister as an enemy to Great Britain and Australia. In the opinion of this paper Ferricks is a greater menace to the well-being of the nation, and to the State of Queensland, than or kicked out of public life. Let us re view his statements in Melbourne on Monday night. He said Hughes was be coming a positive danger to Australia, that the Imperial authorities ought to call him off, that the Senate should defy Hughes to do his worst, that Hughes 'was acting like one demented by Imperialism and jingoism, that every fit man who voted in f...

Wake Up, Tolmie! MORE GINGER REQUIRED FROM OPPOSITION LEADER. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 8 December 1916

Wake Up, Tolmie ! MORE GINGER REQUIRED FROM OPPOSITION LEADER. It is an axiom that the Opposition in Parliament under the present system of party government is in Parliament to act as a brake on the Government. The pre sent Opposition would not act as a brake on n lnr-nl nmm r-,il Whifitfhfir t/hfi fa.il UTS. of the Opposition to make any impressioa on the Ryan Government is due to the maChine-like quality of that body, or to ?the lack of capacity in the personnel of the Opposition, this paper is not prepared to say. It is obvious, however, that the leader of that Opposition, Mr. Jas. Tol mie, member for Drayton, has not proved a very 'brilliant leader. He does not suf fer from the possession of that quality known as initiative. He even appears at times to be fearful of offending his poli tical opponents. He may be too honest, or he may be too cautious. 'mere is one thing to his credit, anyway, and that is, he has never lowered the tone of the House by the use of such unparliamen ta...

The Day of the Anglo=Saxon. Is the Empire Doomed? [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 8 December 1916

The Day of the Anglo=Saxon. Is the Empire Doomed ? Those who voted in the negative on October 28 last will doubtless be pleased (to learn what the Germans say about them. The -'Klonische Zeitung,' a daily ' paper published in Cologne, declares that the rejection of conscription represents the beginning of the end of the British Empire. It m^ans -that a majority of Aus tralians refuse any longer to support the motherland. The newspaper also accuses it.h« Australians of rank nnwarriirp Tt says that all who were out of gunshot j voted for conscription, and that all who would be affected if at were passed voted against it. To accuse the Australian people of cowardice is, of course, absurd in view of the well-established facts. Gallipoli must have proved to the Germans that - Australian soldiers could acquit them ?selves as bravely as the troops of the greatest nations on earth. , The declara tion that rthe rejection of conscription represents;; the beginning of the end of ?the British E...

MORE INJUSTICE. RETURNED SOLDIERS FLOUTED. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 8 December 1916

MORE INJUSTICE. RETURNED SOLDIERS FLOUTED. s The 'Leader' has, from its inception; been a strong champion of the rights of ?returned soldiers. It has day in and day out advocated the dismissal of perma nent staff men and civilians from the positions they now hold, and their re placement by returned soldiers. Certain officers employed on headquarters staffs have promised to make inquiries With a view to having the whole question t-rougnt t0 the notice of the Minister for Defence, 'but the same old injustices, rank injustices in some cases, are being per petrated by the department. A case of, flagrant favoritism came under this paper's notice this week. A man was required to take charge of the pay sheets on -a certain transport. Notwithstanding the fact that there are scores of returned men available and willing to undertake such duties, the job was, or is to be, handed over to a man named Park, a man over fifty, who was not in want, and who was prob ably on the lookout for a cheap tr...

Items from London. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 8 December 1916

Items from London. The Zeppelin which was brought down in the last raid on London was 'as long as Waterloo Bridge, and twice as wide,' says a writer in the 'Times.' The Imperial Nurses' Club has been formed in London to provide a centre where trained nurses may find a much needed rest, with social intercourse and recreation. London is full of nurses from Canada, Australia, America, Africa, and far Japan — a mighty army of women who have come in this hour of national need to join the nurses of England in their work of aiding the doctors and soldiers, to 'do their bit' in this great war, and to them this club, of which H.R.H. Prin cess Henry of Battenburg is patroness, will be a boon. There appears — indeed, from letters re ceived from soldiers, there certainly is — a great need for socks for some of the men at Salisbury Plains. So rigid is the ?red tape in these matters that the hos pitals may not be supplied with articles except through the Red Cross, and the man in the ranks may no...

From Near and Far [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 8 December 1916

I # From Near and Far $ f ❖ -9 | .-Mr. Jack Delhunty, who came in from the West last week, is staying with his people at Sandgate prior to going into camp. Mrs. Ryder (nee Miss Gladys Dinsdale), whose husband was wounded in the land ing at Gallipoli, and rejoins his regiment ?shortly, has been visiting the Anzac Buf fet, and met many Australians, ' among them Cecil and Eric Boyce, sons of Mr. .T A Rhvp.p. ,Sfl.nrle-a.t.p- Among thousands of pathetic stories being told every day is one of a boy who, ?since he received a billy-can last Christ mas, had kept up a correspondence with the girl who sent it. Since August no letters 'have come, so the girl wrote to a sister of whom the young soldier had spoken in his letters for news of liim. Tlie answer came that early in August her brother had 'died of wounds' re ceived in France. The loyal little girl friend has since received a letter from the boy's mother and a photograph of her friend. Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Wilson, Sandgate, received news...

A National Policy. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 8 December 1916

A National Policy. (By 'VIATOR.') It goes without saying that when our boys, who /are now away, in Europe fight ing the Empire's battles, return to Aus tralia after the war they will be satisfied with nothing less th&n a National Govern ment for Australia, built upon the founda tion of a broad, sane democracy which demands from all its citizens of their very Dest in tne ixigiiest and best in terests of ' the Commonwealth. . One thing they will certainly make more than plain, and that is they will not tolerate that much-mouthed demo cracy which holds sway in. Australia to day. With their months and years of rubbing shoulders with the world's best, bravest, and most patriotic, they will assess our so-called democracy at its real worth. It is but an admixture of miscel laneous beliefs without legs or feet. We find in organisations such as the Anti Conscriptionists, elements of such a diver sified character that nothing but sheer human selfishness .could ever have brought togeth...

PREFERENCE TO RETURNED SOLDIERS. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 8 December 1916

PREFERENCE TO RETURNED SOLDIERS. The policy of giving preference to returned soldiers has been adopted by the majority of commercial houses throughout Australia, though there are many which regard the returned man as something unclean: It is passing strange that, while private firms are willing, all things being equal, to give preference to the man who has battled for his country, the Queensland Government and the Aus tralian Defence Department are vieing with each other in the effort to exclude the returned soldier from those right's and privileges which his services have justly earned for him. In its issue of last week the 'Leader' criticised the action of the Defence De partment in retaining young shirkers in well-paid home service positions when there are hundreds of able returned ? men looking for work. During the debate in the Queensland Parliament on the pro posed vote of £1000 to the Returned Sol diers and 'Sailors' Imperial League, Mr. i Ryan criticised the attitude of the ...

A Recruiting System which will not Recruit. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 8 December 1916

A Recruiting System whichl will not Recruit. The ''Daily Mail' is nothing if not opti mistic.- Reviewing the new recruiting scheme proposed by Mr. Hughes, it says :in conclusion: 'There is no doubt that the other States will lend their whole hearted assistance, iand that a concerted movement will sweep -throughout the length and breadth of the Common | wealth. A concerted movement swept throughout the length and breadth of the Commonwealth on October 28 last, but it was a concerted movement against en i listment in any for,m\ though ostensibly ?directed against 'Compulsory enlistment. It is unlikely that those men who voted against compulsory enlistment will be in duced, under any circumstances, to volun teer in the A.I.F. In the first instance, there are not very many fit single men who voted in the affirmative, and those who did would not, if they enlisted, suf fice 'to fill up the gaps in our armies abroad. Those who voted in the negative did 'so, not from any natural abhorrence ...

Honor the Brave. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 8 December 1916

Honor the Brave. 'All honor to the brave, the brave who are no more.' And all honor to the brave who have returned, most of them ? bearing the marks of honorable wounds. The writer remembers seeing a big sign board in Queen-street, near Wharf-street, bearing the words 'Honor to the brave.' It has been there for months, and .the elements ^ have played havoc with what W CtO U1XUC I Ch 11JJLK5 J. CXHJLllUC7i itU Lilt? that brave men were fighting in Egypt and Europe to keep the flag flying and to ensure the safety of Australia. One would imagine that those responsible for the exhibition of that sign would do no less than keep it in good order and condition instead of allowing it to be torn and obliterated by wind and rain. The condition of that board is a practical demonstration of the regard in which brave men are iheld by the general .pub lic. I have not seen a protest against the carelessness of those responsible ap pearing in a single daily paper. If the condition of that sign is a...
