THE LAST MAN AND THE LAST SHILLING. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 22 December 1916

THE LAST MAN AND THE LAST SHILLING. France has again demonstrated to the world that, if necessary, she is prepared to sacrifice 'the last man and the last shilling' in defence of her liberties. Although early in the year the French people subscribed over £500,000,000 to what was known as the 'Victory' War Loan, a further request from the authori ties for the wherewithal, in the shape of money, to prosecute «her campaign (no limit was set t0 the amount) has resulted in 3,000,000 subscribers placing £454,000,000 (£160,000,000 of which repre sented gold payment) at the disposal of the Government. The .drain upon the financial resources, as well as the man power, of the French nation has, of coures, been a terrific one. At the end of the present year the cost of the war toi' France will be about £2,440,000,000, of which £880,000,000 was spent last year, the current year's expenditure being set down at £1,320,000,000. The response of the French people is all the more remarkable when it i...

A WORD FOR THE V.A.D. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 22 December 1916

A WORD FOR THE V.A.D. Except' at the Red Cross buffet at the base, the 'V.A.D. girls in Queensland have had' very little chance of doing any real work, and it is difficult to understand why the authorities will not give them more opportunities of helping in the hos pitals. In N.S. Wales every one of the convalescent homes that have been opened is run by the Y.A.D. under a matron whose services are, more often than not, voluntary. There is ho actual nursing to do — tlie V.A.D.'s are not nurses — but when one realises the vast amount of work which is done daily an any large private house even, one gets some idea of the work these aides have to do. Many of them are girls who, a year ago, had very v little idea of what housework meant; to-day -they are doing their share of the cleaning, cooking, and scrubbing. The matron organises the staff and ap portions the duties of each, and sees that they are carried out — general house work, cooking, waiting at table, sewing, mending, or darning....

THINGS THAT HAVE NOT COME OFF. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 22 December 1916

THINGS THAT HAVE NOT COME OFF. The Boston 'Transcript,' which has been most incisive in its surveys of the war and almost ultra partisan in its sym pathies for the cause of the Allies, hits off the present situation in this happy epitome of events that have not material ised according to the designs of tlie Huns: — 'The original Bremen being now many weeks overdue this seems a suitable way out of an awkward dilemma. Indeed, if the 'Submarine Passenger Service' to America is to continue, as advertised, to break the blockade, and if it is true that the submarine liners for this purpose are now all ready to start, we think it would be a wise precaution to call them all the Bremen. We might perhaps suggest a few more substitutes which have not yet, so far as we know, been utilised: '1. A substitute for Verrdun (with the German flag flying over it). '2. Substitutes for several .German colonies. '3. Substitutes for Contalmaison. Pozieres, and . Delville Wood (badly needed). '4. A substitu...

Marriage by Proxy. IS IT PRACTICABLE? [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 22 December 1916

Marriage by Proxy. IS IT PRACTICABLE? Mr. Hughes 'has introduced a bill to .legalise the marriage by proxy of Austra- . liaa soldiers on active service. The sol dier must make a declaration to the effect that be is desirous of contracting such a marriage. The bill has, according to the cables, amused, astonished, and pleased the Anzacs, some of whom regard it as an effort to prevent them marrying Eng lish girls. 'Which it won't— not by a long chalk. Billjim is a particularly sentimen- 1 tal bloke, and he is made so much of while in England that his tendency to launch into the seas of matrimony with the first pretty girl who makes a fuss of him is not surprising. The same weak ness asserted itself while the Anzacs were in Egypt. The boys kept the par sons busy in Cairo and Alexandria, and the brides ranged from 'Armenians to Austrians. The fair Cairenes, when they learnt of Billjim's penchant for the mar ried state, took advantage of it, and many of the ceremonies were faked by women...

Post-War Trade. JAPANESE ON THE JOB. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 22 December 1916

Post -War Trade. JAPANESE ON THE JOB. Big merchandise -houses in Tokio and Kobe have sent out agents to Moscow, Petrograd, and other large cities in Rus sia, empowered to study the household conditions of the people, the object being to get in on the ground floor of new busi ness before the Western Allies have time to do so. Already one large house has given the Japanese a big order for gloves and mittens, which the Japanese can manufacture at considerably less cost 1 than England or France or Belgium. Not only have the Japanese bestirred themselves in Russia, but they are mak ing determined efforts to capture a por tion of the Australian import trade. A great deal of hot air has been expended on the necessity for preferential trade , between Australia and the other British dominions, including, of course, the United Kingdom. There are numerous articles of commerce, including cotton piece goods, woollens, toys, enamelware, &c., which are not manufactured in Aus tralian Why t...

A Christmas Appeal. JOIN THE R.S. AND P.N.P. LEAGUE. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 22 December 1916

A Christmas Appeal. JOIN THE R.S. AND RN.P. LEAGUE. Christmas, 1916, and the Anzacs are still fighting to uphold the integrity of Australia, and to sweep the grim war god from his position astride the path of civilisation. What mighty hosts have grappled in Europe, Asia, and Africa since the dread war-drum first sounded in July, 1914! What tremendous issues have hung on the result of the greatest battles the world 'has ever witnessed. Through it all the heroes who went out , from Australia to ''do their bit' have c'ar :ried the si&starred banner through vic tory and defeat. Of those original: divi sions how many men are now fighting in France and Egypt? Not a big proportion of them. Thousands lie under little mounds surmounted by rude crosses on the rugged slopes of Gallipoli; others are buried in the sticky soil of: Flanders; while thousands, lucky to . espape with their lives, have returned home. And it is of those returned soldiers that we wish to .speak. The man who has ...

t ? ? ' H The End of an Enjoyable Run. Only those who have appreciated the satisfaction of having dependable 'Dunlops' fitted to their Car can realise the full enjoyment of Motoring. One Important factor in getting certain tyre satisfaction is that ample high-grade materials must be put Into each cover to ensure great strength and durability. DO YOU KNOW THAT DUNLOP TYRES WOULD BE CONSIDERABLY MORE EXPENSIVE THAN IMPORTED TYRES-IF BOUGHT BY WEIGHT?' On an average these Australian-made tyres are several pounds heavier than the same size Imported cover. Heavier — not from use of heavy- adulterants in compounding of rubber— but owing to the greater thickness of hlgh-grade non-cutting rubber on tread and walls of cover, and heavier because they usually contain an extra ply of canvas In casing. YET 'DUNLOPS' COST YOU LESS THAN IMPORTED COVERS. THE REASON IS APPARENT when one considers the fact that 2/- is paid by the importer on every lb. weight of Covers brought into this Country.

THE LEAGUE'S ORGANISER. Members of the Returned Soldiers and Patriots' National Political League and the general public are advised that Mr. Robert Wells is no longer general orga niser of the League, nor is he occupying any official position in connection with this organisation. We take off our hats to: David Lloyd-George for his tremendous fight in the national interest. General Nivelle for his great victory over the Huns at Verdun. The British Army on the Tigris for its success near Kut-el-Amara. Japan for refusing to entertain the peace proposals. The Portuguese nation for its prompt ness in getting its army ready to fight the Germans. The Allies for their firmness in dealing with Greek royalists during this critical period. 1 The coal owners and coal miners for c rriving at an agreement regarding rates of pay. ' Thumbs down to: The German bluffers who thought to fool the Allies into accepting peace on their terms. Premier Ryan for disagreeing with the proposal to apply drastic ...

(To the Editor of the "National Leader.") [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 22 December 1916

(To tho Editor of the 'National Leader.') Dear Sir, — Will you kindly allow me/ space in your newspaper to make a few remarks with reference to the refusal of the Government . to accede to my request to be allowed to hold the 'Birtle Fete'? In December, 1915, with the assistance of my friends, a garden fete was held at my riesidence in aid of the Holmfirth Military Hospital, Yorkshire, in which I am in terested, firstly as being a means of as sisting the wounded boys from the front, | whether they be English Tommies or Aus \ tralian Billjims, and secondly on account | of my relatives assisting to nurse the , wounded in this hospital. In consequence of this fete, patronised chiefly by my friends, we were enabled to forward -the 1 sum of £24, and received from the officials of that institution their1 grateful thanks for same, particularly as they were at that time financially in low water. When organising one this year I was unfortu nately unaware of any regulation making it imperativ...

Mr. Ryan and the I.W.W. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 22 December 1916

Mr. Ryan and theII.W.W. Despite the fact that civilisation itself is at stake, that brave men from every part of the Empire are fighting in the ?midst of an inferno of shot and shell and poisonous gas for everything that we, as a people, ho^d dear, and despite the fact that in ten thousand homes in Australia to-day women are praying for their loved ones in the far-flung battle line, the Pre mier of Queensland is not disposed to take summary action to prevent the spread of the ruinous policy of that anti national, imported, and disloyal organisa tion known as the I.W.W. Last week Mr. Ryan was in Melbourne. He was there as the Premier and the representa tive of Queensland. It was in that capa city that he stood out, alone among the Premiers, as a man who would not agree to legislation dealing summarily with members of the disloyal and anti-Imperial I.W.W. , with anarchists and other politi cal wild-fowl of the same vicious breed. On his return to Brisbane Mr. Ryan told some yarn about...

Oar Christmas Number. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 22 December 1916

Our Christmas Number. In September of thia year tlie Returned Soldiers and Patriots' National Political League decided to publish a weekly paper as a means of communicating their aims and objects to the general public. On September 15 the little paper was launched, and almost immediately it caught on. The second issue reached 6000 copies, all of which were disposed of. The journal is now in its fifteenth issue, and the fact that it has been a paying proposition from its commencement is sufficient prOof of th^ excellence of the letterpress and the strength of its ideals. This is its first Christmas, and it i? also ?the first Christmas of the Returned Sol diers and Patriots' National Political League. The above lsague is the outcome of a desire on the part of returned sol diers to gain parliamentary representa tion for the * men who, last Christmas, were in Egypt or England recruiting their health after the terrible days of Gallipoli. It is a laudable ambition, this desire to take a h...
