Peace at any Price ADVOCATED BY Mr. W. HIGGS, M.P. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 5 January 1917

Peace at any Price ADVOCATED BY Mr. W. HIGGS, M.P. That 'true patriot,' Mr. W. Higgs, member for Capricornia, has started out . on two missions, both directly opposed to each other — the securing of recruits to keep up our army in the 'field, and the advocating of peace at any price. Did you ever ihear of anything quite so ridi culous? It seems to be a deliberate at tempt on his part to make a failure of the new recruiting scheme. Haying been practically driven into co-operating with the other members of the House, owing to the assurances given during the re ferendum campaign that the voluntary cvofam Tiorl n rvt ?Pailarl 'he* di-ac vmmo/lio+Qlv put the damper on, so that the scheme may be a dismal failure. The most striking ,of his remarks are those dealing with peace. It's the first time that we knew Mr. Higgs as a general. He says Germany is beaten, so evidently he has a better knowledge of the military aspect than General Sir Dougla,s Haig, who distinctly stated that the enemy w...

Returned Soldiers. HOW THEY ENTERED POLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 5 January 1917

Returned Soldiers. HOW THEY ENTERED POLITICS. What has gone wrong with Australia? That is the question which is being asked by the majority of returned soldiers. When they left their workshops, their offices, and their farms during the first year of the war, the whole country was full to the brim with patriotism, and it was the unanimous sentiment, demon stratively expressed by all sections of the community,' that they would look after them on their return. Their jobs would be waiting for them to carry on with, as in the glorious years of peace which had rp.ismed for so Ions:. Thp. unionists wp.ra farewelled by their comrades, and speeches were delivered, eulogising the loyalty of the men who were about to set out to keep the foe from these fair shores. Such were the expressions as we sailed away, and we felt that we had the whole of Australia behind us, and if need be the whole of the men would be prepared to come over and help us. We created history on Gallipoli which, to use thei...

The Anzac Crusaders. AND THE MEN WHO HUNG BACK. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 5 January 1917

The Anzac Crusaders. AND THE MEN WHO HUNG BACK. A well-known Australian politician has coined a new catch phrase: 'The real heroes are the men who stayed at home.' On what logic he bases his premises the 'National Leader' cannot discover. Suf fice it to say that he made the statement, and became an object of admiration to those stay-at-homes whom he extolled as men possessing heroic attributes. He a Ten arlrmnistpvrfiri a. Tint, f.n his nwn hank. for he is one of those who remained behind while the immortal Anzacs were making history. Let us analyse this high sounding phrase. 'The real heroes are the men who stayed at home.' What, in the first place, is a hero? To our way of thinking — and it is the average way of thinking — a hero is one who performs a deed of self-sacrifice to save the life of. another, either on the field, of battle or in everyday life. Every man who went from Australia's shores to the great ad venture, the greatest in the history of 'H»n, -fetew -^before-he- set...

From General Haig's last despatch: [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 5 January 1917

From General Haig's last despatch: If i I 'The ? enemy's power is not yet broken, nor § 'A is it possible to estimate the period before the I §L j objects for which the Allies are fighting will be f hs attained, but the Battle of the Somme has placed beyond doubt the ability of the Allies to secure those objects. The German army is the main stay of the Central Powers. Fully half of that army suffered defeat on the Somme.1 Neither the vie* tors nor the vanquished will forget this, and, V* r» J _ _ Li- ? 1 . ? « uMuugn uou weauier nas given tne enemy a re r spite, there will undoubtedly be many thousands [ in his ranks who will begin the new campaign with little confidence of their ability to resist our assaults.

UNIONISM AND THE I.W.W. (To the Editor of the "National Leader,") [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 5 January 1917

UNIONISM AND THE I.W.W. (To the Editor of the 'National Leader,') ) Sir, — Will you kindly allow me a little space in your paper to bring a matter before some of my fellow-unionists. Dur ing the six years the I.W.W. has been an existence in Australia they have never come out and assisted the A.W.U. or any industrial union during any industrial trouble. In fact, they have been distinctly opposed to any sort of class unionism. A change has come, over this body since the conviction of some of its members in Sydney. Since that time they have been seeking the assistance' of the A.W.U. and all other unions to secure the release of those men., What is their object? Is it not to wreck true unionism, and to set up anarchy in its stead? As a life-long unionist, 1 look upon this society as one which would scatter to the four winds all the old treasured ideals of unionism and liberty, and unionists ' will need to keep their weather eye open to every move the I.W.W. may make, so as not to sell t...

The Destitute Brave. RETURNED SOLDIERS IN WANT. THE REPATRIATION QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 5 January 1917

The Destitute Brave. RETURNED SOLDIERS -IN WANT. THE REPATRIATION QUESTION. 'I do not know whether the published statements are fkcts or not, but my state ment stands that, in any cases of desti tution, hardship, or injustice from which any returned soldier ,may be suffering, if the name and circumstances are laid before .me, I will take immediate steps to remedy .them. It is an^obvious thing that the responsibility fori the welfare and the comfort of the pien. who have fought for their country 'rests, upon the community as a whole, and .the £pmmon wealth Government is the agency through which this responsibility of the community must be discharged. It is clearly a duty which cannot .be left to sporadic or even systematic voluntary effort,' — Mr. Hughes when complaints from Sydney regarding the v destitute con dition of returned soldiers was brought under his notice. It is, to .this paper's way of thinking, a standing disgrace to Australia that even one returned soldier should be al...

RECOGNISING OUR HEROES. (To the Editor of the "National Leader.") [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 5 January 1917

RECOGNISING OUR HEROES. (To the Editor of the 'National Leader.') Dear Sir, — I would like just a little space in your paper to throw out a sug gestion to returned soldiers, and I'm sure they will all fall in with it. Mr. Finlay son, M.P. for Brisbane, once said that the real heroes were those men who refused to go to the war. As a returned soldier, I quite agree with Mr. Finlayson, but would like to see these 'heroes' re warded. My suggestion is that the real 'heroes' be given some sort of badge or medal so as the general public can- dis tinguish them from the 'cold-footers' who have returned from the fighting line. To me it seems an outrage that we so far have failed to recognise these heroes, for their 'undying' bravery has astounded the world, and has made Australia great, yet we, who have received so much at their hands, have done nothing for them. I As to Mr. Finlayson himself, I really think that his own bravery and sacrifice for his country should be recognised in some publi...
