Sheep Farming. RETURNED MEN ON SMALL AREAS. (To the Editor of the "National Leader."). [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 15 December 1916

Sheep Farming. RETURNED MEN ON -SMALL AREAS. (To tie Editor of the 'National Leader.') Sir, — May I, through the medium of your paper, make a few suggestions in regard to the settlement of returned sol diers on the land? The majority of men who wish to take up land have knocked about enough to know that sheep farming is a profitable game, and that the cross bred sheep must .play a big part in the future of our coastal lands. It has been proved. that the crossbred merino and all British breeds are suitable for our coast from the border to the Cape, so it will not be an experiment. The Dawson Val ley is a typical spot for . this kind of farm ing, and can be worked here at a mini mum cost. The land would have to be cleared and sown with Rhodes or pas palum grasses; it would then carry five or . six sheep to the acre. Five acres of this country could be -cleared for the cost of one on the Blackall Range. One hundred and sixty acres would be ample for each selector, who could subdivide h...

Of Interest to Women. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 15 December 1916

Of Interest to Women. (By 'VERITAS.') Corpl. Sizer has returned to Brisbane from a lecturing tour in the North. Everywhere lie found the interest in the welfare of .the returned soldier very keen, and, after all, is not this as it should be? Should not we who for one reason or another are among the stay-jat4homes consider it not only a duty, but a privi lege to further the interests of those men who have offered their lives for their country and for us? Our duty is not done when we have welcomed the returned soldiers home, visited them at the hospitals, or taken them for a motor run or two. They have t0 take up life aigain, some of them broken and maimed, and all of them sick men more or less. And plucky sporting though they are, ?it requires even more pluck and grit to face life again under those conditions than it does to 'go into it' under fire in the heat and excitement of battle. So let us help them all we can, every man and woman of us — help them by sym pathy and encouragemen...

The Nkionalfeigue General Meeting. Class Legislation Condemned. 'When the Boys Come Home.' Those who attended the general meet ing of the Returned Soldiers and Patriots' National Political League at the Albert . Hall on Tuesday night were not sorry they went, as they heard a number of splendid speeches, touching on politics mostly, but all demonstrating the pro gress the League has made,.

The Premier's Tactics. More About the Deputation. Returned Men Still Out of Work. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 15 December 1916

The Premier's Tactics. More About the Deputation. Returned Men Still Out of Work. Although from the viewpoint of those returned out-of-work soldiers who bearded Ryan in his den on Wednesday last the interview could not be deemed satisfactory, it proved to most of them that .Mr. Ryan is too shrewd to commit * himself to anything definite. He must have felt rather nervous about receiving a deputation of out-of-work Anzacs, as ho knows well enough that if he does not (help them substantially the day of reckon ing will surely come. That he was taken somewhat by surprise was evidenced by his haste to bring 'to the conference Mr. Claude Henderson, of the War Council, and Mr.1 Crampton, of. the Labor Bureau. He also had Mr. Hunter, of the argus eye, at ihis right elbow. In fact, he was , so hedged about with supports that most of the poor unemployed grew nervous. The result was that when the Premier asked them what they thought of the work done on their behalf by the State Government some ...

A VILLAINOUS LETTER.

REPATRIATION FUNDS. SCHEME MOOTED IN BOWEN. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 15 December 1916

REPATRIATION FUNDS. SCHEME MOOTED IN BOWEN. The Bowen people are evidently wide awake to the possibilities of opening up their district with the help of returned soldiers. To that end they have devised a scheme for the benefit of the Repatria tion Fund, and have sent the following letter to the Queensland War Council, the Lands Department, and the R.S. and P.N. Political League: — 'Adverting to my letter of 25th ultimo, the Wangaratta Shire Council, at its special meeting on Saturday forenoon, and later, in its capacity as the Austra lian Soldiers' Repatriation (Bowen) No. 3 Committee, passed resolutions copy of which are attached herewith.

A Nation which Believes in Getting Ready. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 15 December 1916

A Nation which Believes in Getting Ready. After trying for two and a half years to make the world believe that poor, much-maligned Germany was more to be pitied than blamed, the Huns have come to the conclusion that truth will out. Baron Zedlity, writing in the 'Ber- lin Post,' makes the admission that 'the Chancellor, as early as 1911, requested the Ministry for the Interior ito begin economic preparation for the war, but it was only in 1913 that we began the full development of our land and sea forces, which was too late to have full effect at the outbreak of war.' Such an admis sion, though rather belated, conveys to the initiated nothing that they did not already know, but it places the responsi bility on the right shoulders. To those who had studied German military history since the Danish War, the declaration of war by Germany against the Triple En tente came as no surprise. The diplo mats of every country knew that she was not preparing for a campaign against Iceland, or Holl...

Where Socialism Failed. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 15 December 1916

Where Socialism Failed. (By STEWART GRAHAME.) [Tlie 'National Leader' Will publish, from week to week, chapters from Stewart Grahame's book, 'Where Social ism Failed.' The work gives a compre hensive description of (the events leading up to th,e great strike in Australia in the early nineties, and the results attending William Lane's efforts to introduce prac tical socialism in Paraguay.] With his magnetic personality, Lane seemed like a heaven-sent prophet to the eager band of disciples who gathered about him and devoted all their energies to disseminating his doctrines. Of a truth there was something very attrac tive about them to the wage-earners, for it was Lane's amazing creed that the factory hand was the rightful owner, of the factory, that the sheep-shearer was entitled to the full profits of the shearing industry, that the legal owners of all forms of property were robbing the manual workers of their dues. Among his followers the fallacious theory that 'the frugal workman o...

The Rocks and Shoals of Party Politics. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 15 December 1916

The Rocks and Shoals of Party Politics. i Just about six months ago Hughes was I throwing advice about all over Great j Britain]. He was urging the people to 'follow Australia's example.' We won- ; der what Ms attitude towards the British , people would be to-day df lie had the opportunity of handing out the hot air to the heavy-footed Britishers? Would he advise them to 'follow Australia's example,' or would he tell them that Australia was a hotbed of disloyalty, or indifference, or something, and was an outsider who to imitate would mean ?national calamity. Only a brief six months have passed since Billy Hughes, the idol of the Australian unionist and the pet of the patricians in Great Britain, held Australia and the world spellbound by the magic of his oratory. Where is he inow? Hanging on to office for dear life/ hunted from the unions which were i wont to worship at his shrine, the strong man .whose strength was only a veneer. Immolated on the altar of party politics, forced in...

ALLIES' BABIES' KIT SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 15 December 1916

ALLIES' BABIES' KIT SOCIETY. It was in the early days of 'the war, when the news came of the horror and devastation in Belgium, that Dr. Mary Booth first formed the Babies' Kit Society in Sydney. The work was' thin only for the children of Belgium, to whom the invading Hun had brought such destitu tion and misery. During those first days Mrs. Campbell Riley was in Sydney, and through visiting this centre of work for ?the babies she became interested, and on her return to her home in Toowoomba at once started a Queensland branch. One who saw the first consignment of kits all ready in Mrs. Campbell Riley's drawing-room at La Chuite will not readily forget the beauty and daintiness of the little garments, nor the wonderful work which had been put into them. All a mother's love and care for her own first born might have been worked in with the delicate stitchery of the wee gar ments of fine muslin and lace comprising the smallest kits. Then there were those for the older children — love...
