SOUTHPORT MURMURS. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 15 December 1916

SOUTHPORT MURMURS,, . It will be remembered by readers of the 'Leader' that this paper was respon sible for the dismissal of a certain official at the Staghorn Hospital, the reason being that he had never seen service, and that his place could be as capably filled by a returned soldier. It seems as though the Defence Department has set out to deliberately exclude returned anen from home service jobs. Here's another case ??'?from 'Southport. At Myers' Ferry is a hospital, empty now, but likely at any old time to be occupied by Billjim. The hospital has for caretaker a man who has never seen active service, yet he has been kept there for months draw ing 8s a day — 5s military pay and 3s messing allowance. That job could be filled very nicely by a returned soldier. Why has it not been done? Another growl from the ocean village — and quite justifiable, too. The motor ambulance at Staghorn is being driven by a man who should be doing 'his bit at tlie front. He should be taken off the car...

Holland Cares for Small Nation of Refugees. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 15 December 1916

Holland Cares for Small Nation of Refugees. One of tlie redeeming and outstanding features of this desperate war has been the attitude of the neutral nations to wards the distressed belligerents who have sought their hospitality. It is scarcely realised how great a .strain it has been upon the resources of Holland, for instance, to receive and care for the crowds of Belgian exiles who have streamed over her borders; but it is really wonderful what the Dutch have done in the exercise of their instincts of humanity. That they have spared neither personal effort nor money is amply borne out by the startling fact that in Holland's Bud get for 1916 no less than one-eighth, or thereabouts, of the expenditure is allo cated entirely to the maintenance and relief -of the Belgian refugees. ONE VILLAGE WELCOMES 25,000 SOULS. The Dutch had nothing to gain either in goodwill or future interest, but spon taneously local committees sprang up in all directions, and, in addition to general private h...

SUPER-DREADNOUGHT AIRSHIPS. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 15 December 1916

SUPER-DREADNOUGHT AIRSHIPS. I ? It .is now well known that every coun try which has any claim to be a producer of aircraft is experimenting with bigger and bigger aeroplanes. Not very long ago the British censor permitted the pub lication of the news that a British aero plane of large size had carried a pilot and twenty passengers t0 a height of 7000 feet, and was only stopped from climb ing higher by, a bank of clouds which made it impossible for the pilot to see where he was going. Germans, French, and Italians have also built very big machines, but so far the Italians are alone of the belligerent nations to have made a point of empha sising the name of the big bombardmen. aeroplanes which they use so regularly. These machines, designed by the engi neer Caproni, were known to exist in Italy before that nation joined in the war. A FLIGHT OVER THE ALPS. They have two bodies, each with a trac tor screw in front, the rear ends of the bodies being connected by one single, enormous tail...

The League and Trades Unionism. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 22 December 1916

The League and Trades i » Unionism. Statements have frequently been, made to the effect that the Returned Soldiers amd Patriots' National Political League is opposed to trades unionism, and intends doing t!he union movement as much harm as possible. The 'Leader' hereby places on record its emphatic denial of -such statements, which are in the nature of charges by people who have an axe to grind. It may surprise those one-eyed, narrow-minded apostles of shirk to know 'that the majority of the members of the executive council of the league are unionists. Far from wishing any harm to unionism, (the league is prepared to help it; but it strongly objects to rendering assistance to the gang of parasites who batten on to the unions, and who, by low cunning and artfully-worded agitation, worm themselves into positions of trust in connection with the Trades Hall. The league is strongly opposed to I.W.W,-ism, or, in other words, anarchy. There are a large- number of good unionists who join th...

The Eleventh Hour. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 22 December 1916

The Eleventh Hour. (By JOICE M. NANKIVELL.) ' The eleventh hour is striking. Watch man, what of the night? How fares it with my stalwart sons whom you sent forth to fight? They sailed in the hours of dawn— gray skies and a steel-cold sea — And what of the pledge you made them, and the promise you made to me? Or did you know in your hearts you would leave them there to die? Now from the gravns of the men you betrayed I ask the question: 'Why?' You prate of the strength of nations. Is yours, then, a waning power? For you pause though the clock is strik ing — it is now the eleventh hour. ? Do you hear in your inmost hearts, 'How fares it with my sons?''? But you turn to your pretty quibbling, and Death claims his chosen ones. What of the day of reckoning? But the seas are wide and deep, . And you do not wish to hear, so you hush your fears to sleep. I ' . And. they are the life of the nation, keen and steady, and cool, With grit and backbone and daring; they are the men of the good old...

ONE FOR THE JUDGE. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 22 December 1916

ONE FOR THE JUDGE. The woolly-headed Uncle Rasmus was accused of disturbing the peace. Officer Mort Rudolph explained it as follows:— 'Your honor, this man was running up and down the Mill River road waving his arms and yelling at the top of his voice, and otherwise raising tho mischief, at half past one in the morning. The people of the district complained, and they had a perf ect right to.' The judge frowned at Rasmus, who didn't seem to be particularly worried. 'What do you mean by such unbecom ing conduct?' his honor demanded. 'Religion, jedge,' was the response. 'Religion! Are you a Holy Roller or ?something like that? I have religion, Rasmus, but I don't get up at midnight and tell everybody about it.' 'Dat's des' de diffunce, jedge. I ain't ' ershamed ob mine.,' — -Case and Comment.

Eliminating German Trade. AUSTRALIAN-BRITISH INDUSTRIES LEAGUE AND ITS OBJECTS. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 22 December 1916

Eliminating German Trade. AUSTRALIAN-BRITISH INDUSTRIES V LEAGUE AND ITS OBJECTS. Among all the conditions of life affected by this great world war there are none ?which will be so absolutely revolutionised as those touching Australian and British trade conditions. Until now Australia, at least, has been solely the country of the primary producer, and with our tremen dous natural wealth we have been satis fied to stop at tii at,- and the consequent is that thousands of pounds worth of natural products have been sent out of ! the country each year to be manufac tured by other countries Here are a few 'figures. During^the years 1910-14-15 Ger many imported from Australia 432,599,442 lb of raw wool and we bought back from Germany during those years £21,000,000 worth of manufactured goods. During those same years we imported from the United Kingdom £58 000,000- worth, and froir. France £/.7,500,00, so that Germany was ou' third largest supplier.

Federa tion's attack on Capital was simply an act of aggression, with syndicalism as its object. The battle was not fought by the unions on legitimate grounds in defence of some overworked or underpaid mem bers. ' Employers of labor were under the thumb of the unions, whose yoke was , grievous to bear, and wages ruled higher, with shorter hours, ? than in any other ®ountry of the world.

THE LITTLE MATTER. A war contractor broke the silence of his club reading-room with a dreadful sigh. 'What's the matter?' a brother con tractor asked. 'Alas, alas! ' said the first contractor; 'I've just bought 5,000,000 pairs of shoes at 5s a pair and sold them to the Army for a quid a pair, and I'm afraid the loss will ruin me.' 'Loss? Loss?' said the other con tractor. 'What are you talking about, man? On 5,000,000 pairs of shoes, with a good profit per pair, how can there be a. loss?' 'My dear fellow,' said the first con tractor sadly, 'you forget the little mat ter of commissions.'
