THROUGH AUSTRALIAN WILDS VIII. Out from Burketown [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 18 August 1917
THROUGH* AUSTRALIAN WILDS VIH.a==Out from Burketown (Specially written for .the Mirror by FRANCIS BIRTLES.) The next day we arrived at Camooweal. I felt utterly disappointed with the place. Here was a place which six years ago was the real genuine outback. Now an offensively modern up-to-date motor car was idling in the shade of a well-painted hotel, another one was whirl ing along the suburbs in a cloud of dust Some commercial travellers, v/ith bowler hats and - white starched collars, lounged back in cosy deck chairs in a shady verandah. No more ? would that place resound with yells of drunken joy, or territory outlaws come riding boldly down the one and only main street. Motor cars in a few short years had made that . journey to the rail-head a matter of two days' easy travelling. There is but one outback town now left in Queensland, and . that is the sand-hill sur rounded hamlet of Birdsville, in South-west Queensland. The. local storekeeper — old-time ; friend of overlanders, a...

The thing to be noted is that certain disasters were threatened, and must he dealt with, and, if possible, prevented. First, there was the very definite threatening of stoppage of the food sup ply. If that happened, the position would be appalling. To start with, it would be a direct and awful menace to child-life. Add to that that nursing mothers must be well-fed, that the feeding of our soldiers in a very big and im portant busineru, and that the cost of living ip already sufficient of a worry in itself. ? THE RIGHT TO STRIKE. Ab to what may be railed the general right to strike something may be said.
