BOLSHEVISM AND PEACE. [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 1 July 1919

BOLSHEVISM AND PEACE. Mr. Max Nordau, discussing Bolshevism and the League of Nations, says: — V 'First:- — It is' impossible to give a clear de finition of 'Bolshevism;' The word has many different meanings, according to the people who use it. As it is now employed in Russia, it is Socialism gone mad, anarchy for the use of shirkers of Work, thieves, robbers, murderers, and raying lunatics. It is possible that-- there is some idea at the bottom 'of it, but there is * so much blood over it that it is impossible to perceive the idea. It may spread all. over the earth— so does the grip, so did at other times the cholera and' the plague. But as the vital power of mankind does not yet seem exhaust '** ? ed, it will finally react against the fatal disease and- stamp it out. . Democracy and social jus tices are one thing. The worst arid most be 4 sti.al instincts of depraved savages let loose are . another thing. Civilisation will prove stronger than the infamous onslaught of vicious and ...

Fishing Extraordinary [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 1 July 1919

fishing Extraordinary There are stories of fishing with ' rod and reel, trout fishing and spearing fish in the coral gardens of the Pacific Ocean, but for sheer daring and excitement give me shark tickling in Tahiti. Away in those islands of the' Blest I wit nessed on various occasions and in diver3 places exhibitions of rare skill and daring. Thus, for example, I have watched a man chas ing fish over shallow stretches of water with no other implements to help him in his ven ture than bare hands . and a pair of good legs, the whole thing resolving itself into a question of speed and endurance. Or again when calmly sailing in a native cutter under a cloudless sky and over the deep blu9 swell cf the Pacific there would come a warning cry from the man in the bows of the boat:. Tofua! Tofua!' and overboard the whole crew would go with a knife or a spear each, after the shark, that was l sighted, near by. Shark's flesh is considered as something of a delicacy by the islanders. But the cr...

Mr. Watt is Obliging [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 1 July 1919

Mr. Watt is Obliging Even Parliamentary debates occasionally supply a bit of dry humour. . Mr. Fowler asked the Minister for Trade and' Customs whether he has ' seen the somewhat sensational statement in the press to the effect that German employees in various parts of America are engaged in poisoning canned foods subsequently sent to the British Dominions?' Mr. GREENE: 'Yes, exhaustive ? inquiries ?\Vill be macie.' Mr. ANSTEY : ' In regard to the important : matter mentioned by the honourable member for Perth (Mr. Fowler) I ask the Minister for Trade and Customs whether he will take' into consideration the advisableness of appointing Governntfent tasters?' . ?' Mr. WATT: 'The Opposition will also be represented.' We are glad that Ave have not been invited to take part in the testing operations.

Diggers, Beware! YELLOW STREAKS AND YELLOW PATCHES. [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 1 July 1919

Diggers, Beware! -'YELLOW STREAKS AND YELLOW PATCHES. There are* all sorts of things 'hidden under the cloak of so-called Journalism, shrieking around street corners arid vomitings unsavoury hate-ebullitions against all and sundry. We - hold no brief for the R.S.S.I.L.A. . .The Imperial League is -quite able to defend itself against its opponents. But when an at tempt is- made to help the soldiers in fHeir ' present need to obtain employment for those who deserve the best this- country can give, o such attempt must of necessity . receive the whole-hearted support of all sections of the community and certainly of every friend of . the returned soldier. It has ours. The R.S.S.I.L.A. recently formed 'a Labour Bureau ?which acts in a honorary capacity and which to ou'r knowledge was instrumental in securing work for good many soldiers within the short period of its existence. Among other aims of the Bureau- is the' idea of inducing all em ployers to notify the Repatriation Department wh...

THE EARLY TRAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 1 July 1919

THE £ARLY TRAIN. Enquiries made the night before elicited the ' information that the train left at 4 next morn ing. A humourous, but lying timetable said 3.45. I arrived at 3.30, and the train, with a stupendous disregard for all the' canons of punctuality, suddenly bolted out at 4.50. ? A saddened man, who had arrived at 3.0, subsequently told me that he had known it to sneak, out at 3.15, from which I gathered that the catching of that train was a business where-' in early rising, inaccurate information and 'luck were the component parts. : ? At .3.45 a . man arrived with a lantern that stank unto the heavens, and showed light unto some of any creed or calling, at which certain untidy and mysterious bundles' upended .them selves and rubbed the slumber , out of their eyes. They ^lso cleared their throats, noisily, arid shook the dust out of their flowing gar ments t on to all and sundry in their vicinity.' The Arab, in his early morning habits, is not a sanitary person. At 3.50 an ...

The Soldiers Returning [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 1 July 1919

The Soldiers Returning We have been far abroad for our country and King, And fought, suffered and bled, shall we say? And now that we're back, having finished the thing Must we call for a reckoning day? We left you our children, our mothers* and wives, You had promised they never should need; Did you think you could give them the worth of' our lives, Or the worth of the blood, we did bleed? Oiir country is grateful, of course— that we know; Its gratitude how can we doubt, When the papers and statesmen all say it is so, ; . '? And. banners and flags are hung out? There are cheers and handshaking for we who return, And crowds line the streets where we come, And the siren's loud blare and the .flags would declare We were welcome e'en though you - were dumb. ?/' And a handshake, a band tune, cheers on the ' street, ^ And banners and bunting galore, Are enough for thp men you go out to meet Though they have been winning the war. These are those who went gladly, not those you made go, And...

"The Devil's Pool" (All rights reserved.) [Newspaper Article] — The Leader — 1 July 1919

' The Devil's Pool ' By ALFRED J. LEX. (All rights reserved.) . Crow's Nest is ' bush '—somewhere' in Aus tralian—miles awayJ?rom the nearest post office, ' ? barber or township. There are hills all around it, and still more hills ( behind, all cov ered with bush: bluegum,-bloodwood, red gum and pine. Down in the gullies grow tree- ferns, bracken and wild flowers amidst patches of soft, rich green moss and rotting wood. Two or three houses scattered through the bush, two or three fields wrested from the forest— such is Crow's Nest. . i ? Yet even here strange things may happen. * '# * * ~ One early morning on 'the top of the ranges' I sat down to rest in the pool shade of an old, rotting gum., I was weary after a ' r long tramp along rough bush tracks and the sun was beginning to mount. Bright-coloured parakeets were flitting from tree to tree, wood doves were calling in the bush, or' a butterfly - would flash by in a glitter of gold, purple or silver.
