Mon tefiore an,d Markowicz are defeated Tory can didates, which is news to us, as neither of the two gentlemen, ever contested an election as candidates unless it was in some previous in carnation, possibly when the moon was an in habited planet, with the 'Standard's' corres pondent as the editor of her 'Daily Rag.'

A PLOT THAT FAILED. A SIGNIFICANT ADMISSION. [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 1 May 1919

A PLOT THAT FAILED. A SIGNIFICANT ADMISSION. For some time past it was evident that an organised clique was trying to wreok the R.S.S.I L.A., or, at least, to minimise the sphere of its activity by continuous introduc tions of petty quarrels and personal attacks on the more active members of the Returned Soldiers' Association. Meetings convened for the purpose of discussing important questions were sidetracked and stonewalled to the general disgust of members. Rumours of 'packing' the meetings were frequent, but it was not until the fourth of May that, definite proof could be obtained. At a meeting held at the Trades Hall a mem ber of the Executive of the Brisbane Sub Branch of the R.S.S.I.L.A. — to wit, Mr. J. B. Quinlan— stated (according to the 'Standard') 'that during the eighteen months he was on the executive of the R.S.S.I.L.A. he tried to get soldiers who belonged to the working class into the body to fight the executive.' A sig nificant admission this, especially if one re ...
