OFFICIAL BUNGLING YESTERDAY'S RETURNED SOLDIERS TWO INSTEAD OF 47! [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 8 January 1919

YESTERDAY'S RETURNED SOLDIERS TWO INSTEAD OF 47! The people of Devonport who arrang- ed to meet and entertain 47 returned soldiers who were to have disembarked from the Rotomahana yesterday morn- ing were sorely disappointed. Only two soldiers left Melbourne by the boat, and they disembarked at Bur- nie! This is just another example of that official bungling which has become a by-word. The deplorable manner in which the public has been inconveni- enced in the matter of soldiers re- turning to their homes has been writ- ten of often in these columns. For many months it was impossible to ob- iain information from the authorities as to the times when soldiers were re- turning, and how many there were in each batch. Now that this infor- mation is supplied, it is often erron- eous. On Monday it was officially announ- ced that 47 returned soldiers would be arriving on tho North-West Coast by tho Rotomahana yesterday, and would be disembarked at Devonport. Act- ing upon this information, t...

The Advorate. FAIR AND IMPARTIAL WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 8, 1919. WHAY TO ACOID IN POLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 8 January 1919

FAIR AND IMPARTIAL WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 8, 1019. i WK AY TO AVOID ¡N POLITICS. Tiia spread of Bolshevik idc?s in Russia and Germany pave risc to the view that tho mcvemeui against con stituted authority tras widespread. But tho Eritirli elections should provo that tho proverbial sanity of the Brilon has not deserted thc nation. As a fact history records that the caines of revolution elsewhere havo had a steadying inCucnco in England. When tho French people, goaded by innum erable wrongs, ro-c and decided to wipe a corrupt monarchy off tho face [ of- the earth, tho lawlessness did not spread across tho Channel. On the contrary a reaction was set up, and many needed reforms in the Homeland wero delayed für half a century in consequence. So it may prove on clio present occasion. At any rate it is the pleasing fact that the sane and solid Pnton, tho author of constitutional government, has preserved his head amidst tho shaking thrones and top pling despotisms near at hand.

LEST WE FORGET THE FAILURE OF RECRUITING. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 8 January 1919

LEST WE FORGET THE FAILURE OF RECRUITING. To tho Editor. Sir,-There ia, alas, one feature of tho past year's war record of which it is impossible for a loyalist to bo proud. At tho end of 1917 Austra lia gave a second Tote against con scription, but again this roto was giren to an accompaniment of pro testations from the anti-conscription ists that thero was no disloyalty or shirking of service and sacrifice in tho refusal to adopt compulsion. The protestations were largely insincere. For carly in 1918 the Queensland La bor Convention, presided over by Mr. Ryan, passed the statement about tho war which later in the. year was adop ted, with only insignificant altera tions by the Verth Conference on be half of tho wbolo Labor Party in Australia. The Perth Conference's hostile attitude to recruiting was con ' sistppt with its attitude to the war. Tlie fact is that tho leaven of Bol shevism had "already effected a con siderable chango in the party's war | feeling and policy. To the Bols...

SOLDIERS AND DRINK To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 8 January 1919

SOLDIERS AND DRINK To the Editor. Sir,-Would you, in the interests of our brave soldiers, publish the en closed, which is only one of many such letters appearing in the press. The mothers of the Commonwealth pleaded very hard (and were supported by the boys nt the front) for a closed bar for our returning men, but "vested inter ests" proved to loom much more largely in the horizon of men than the todies and souls of our bravo men who have saved Australia for us. We cannot even close one hotel in Burnie without a "hue and cry" from thc trade, and its representatives. I, in common with many, realise the injus tice of closing some hotels and not others, but when our representatives (?) in Parliament turn down prohibi tion, there is nothing left but local option, and if I livo in a street where there Í3 any trade to which I ob ject, in common honesty I should bo lalle to vote for its removal. -lours,! etC'' A SQUARE DEAL.
