ORIGIN OF "PATRIOTIC." [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 29 September 1916

ORIGIN OF 'PATRIOTIC.' A speaker the other, day alluded to the ' ancient patriotic note.' It may be interesting to remem ber that the word 'patriot' came into use in England in the seventeenth century, when it was invariably coupled with, a defining adjective, such as ' good,' or ' worthy ; ' and, later, at the French Revolution, one of Fouquier-Tinville'g tavourite accusations was that the victim was not a 'good patriot.' 'Patriotism' did ot come into use, in English, till the eighteenth century, Berkeley and Bolingbroke being among, the first to employ the term. It means not only a love of one's country, but a share in the joy which another may have in the corresponding love of his own: — as much wider, nobler thing than the selfish ' Vaterland ' aim, implying, as it does, a world-Germany, with all its peoples Germaniacs.

VICTORY, OR LABOR "RIGHTS." [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 29 September 1916

VICTORY, OR LABOR ' RIGHTS.' M How the business community is going to adjust itself to so severe an accentuation of its present difficulties, is a problem that can'[be more easily forced upon it by a yes vote than satis factorily solved. Partial make shift solutions in the directions of the working of overtime, making the best use possible of Untrained, and unskilled labor, and drawing uptin the services of women and girls, may be found ; but all of these mean an ; immediate decline in efficiency, /and the creation of fresh industrial problems, against which1 organised labor, with -many of its hard-won rights jeopardised, will certainly fight to the last.'— ' Daily Standard,' 21st September, 1916.

ROBBER KNIGHTS OF PRUSSIA AND THEIR DESCENDANTS. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 29 September 1916

ROBBER KNIGHTS OF PRUSSIA AND THEIR DESCENDANTS. - Before Prussia was a kingdom, it swarmed with nobles, who had gained for themselves the sinister title of ' Raiubritter,' or robber knights. They lived in strong castles, or ' Raubschlossen,' srhence they and their followers would sally forth to ravage, burn and slay. These castles were built On high, inaccessible rocks, such as for example, that of the Hohenzollern in Wurtemburg. One of the most famous of the families was that of the Quitzows. A drama of that name came out in Germany some years ago, written by a bastard member of the Hohenzollern family* It was a) great favourite of Kaiser Wilhelm, who often ' attended its performance in the Shauspielhaus {Royal Berlin Theatre), which is kept by the King of Prussia, Many of the German country squires of the present day are descended from these robber knights. ' Tout-chien chasse de race,' says the French. ^ ; AND NOW WE HAVE SEEN THEM at work, and know how well they can uphold the ...

MR. FINLAYSON, M.H.R., AND THE GERMAN VOTE. NO SYMPATHY FOR RETURNED SOLDIERS. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 29 September 1916

MR. FINLAYSON, AMD THE GERMAN VOTE. NO SYMPATHY FOR RETURNED SOLDIERS. In publishing the above, we do so only because we find that at the present time, politicians are very fond of accusing each other of receiving the German vote. - - ' - In selecting the gentleman whose photo, appears above, we did so from no sense of spite or ill feeling, but mainly because this particular member of the House of Representatives is a person who has passed insulting and disparaging remarks about returned soldiers. We have often wondered wh a member of s the Federal Parliament could have anything but complimentary remarks to [ pass about the men who have fought for the country, out of which he is obtaining a handsome, livelihood. ? . The above circular shows fairly, conclusively . that' Mr. Finlayson has recognised only too well the big German element, and the power '.which politically it wields in Australia:, knowing that th.t support of the' Germans was essential if he was to retain his position in...

DEMAND FOR IMMEDIATE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 29 September 1916

DEMAND FOR IMMEDIATE WAR. This article appeared in the Berlin ' Post,' . in February, 1914, six months previous to me outbreak Of Wat, and 'was reprinted in the Lqndoi* 'Telegraph.' It dissipates any doubts which may have arisen in British minds as to the responsibility for this terrible war. , V In both the morning and evening issues of the Berlin 'Post,' the entire front page is given up to a lengthy article, which culminates in a perfectly frank and unabashed demand for immediate Was, as the only means of extricating Germany from an already intolerable situation that has a tendency to become worse for her instead of better. Nb purpose would be served (says the ' Telegraph ') by following the author into his elaborate and, fantastic arguments, but a few sentences froha, his conclusions may convey a lesson. Thus, he writes / What are we to do ? Are we really to wait quietly till Austria is completely shaken ;t-^ pieces, till Italy must bow before the over whelming influence of the ...

FREE DEMOCRATIC AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 29 September 1916

FREE DEMOCRATIC AUSTRALIA. ' We people must, at this 'critical period 'of the nation's history, resolutely shake off the glamor of an exalted patriotism, must remove the scales ft'ofrl theit eyes, and fearlessly and dis passionately analyse the whole basis 6f present jday happenings. The , conscriptionists are feverishly endeavouring to blind the nation to the real facts of the position. They are unhestiatingly appealing to the national vanity, the war lust of the Empire, in order to induce the people to write the word ' ConscriDtion ' across the man of free, democratic Australia. ' — ' Daily Standard,' September 20th. Our Patriotism. ^ Just so, the people, and under that head, the ' Standard ' presumably means the whole of the people., must do their utmost on October 28th, to tear the Commonwealth flag into shreds, and take the stand that it is foolish to go on fighting against Germany and Austria, because we have no personal quarrel with either Bill Hohenzollern or Franz Joseph of...

Glorifying a Section. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 29 September 1916

Glorifying a Section. This paper is thoroughly in sympathy with unionism as a road to social improvements ; but when the principle is . extended to the political, arena, and to such an extent, that its power is v used to glorify a section of the people at the expense of the nation's fighters', and to the detri ment of the State's resources, the ' Leader ' is, up against them. The Returned Soldiers ane Patriots' National League is a band of patriots whose first plank is to do all in their power to end this awful war, as soon as possible. There are scores of unionists who would, if the statements of their representatives are any criterion, be just as pleased if Germany won the war, so long as their industrial 'rights' were not assailed. Fresh Industrial Problems. They are afraid that conscription willr create fresh industrial problems which wiU. jeopardise those ' , precious rights.

Unions who Assist the Enemy. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 29 September 1916

Unions who Assist the Enemy. : That section of the community which talks so plausibly of the rights of labour, is composed of men and women, who would rather the Germans won this* war than that they should be deprived of those so-called rights,, which the political organisation of a certain class of labour has gained for them. Labor, to them, consists only, of the people who toil manually ; the profes sional men, the tarmers, the small shopkeepers, the workers who won't join the unions, are outside the charmed circle, and are, consequently, not classed as Laborites. The ftuth is, that the word Labor, as applied to the, unions which strike at every -available opportunity, whose members by ? ceasing work are assisting the enemy, is a misnomer., . There .are thousands of . others whose rights as ; -citizens of this great democratic. Commonwealth: ' are1 so indefeasible as those of organised unionists . . ? ? ? ' s ? : ; ' j;

STEAMSHIP COMPANY'S PROFITS. RESULT OF INCREASED FREIGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 29 September 1916

| StEAMSHIP COMPANY'S PROFITS. vi - RESULT OF INCREASED FREIGHTS. Some of the profits made out of the war dy British Steamship Companies have been enormoes. In some cases, pre-war profits have been treblsbs and in,most cases doubled, by the huge increa-a, in freights which the companies have levied oe the general public. It is nothing short of n national scandal, when wealthy steamship comf panies can use the war as an instrument of ^?exploitation, that their profits are twice as big in '1915 as in 1913.

'? HOW WE 601 THE SUEZ. BSCS THE STORY OF A GREAT DEAL. Whilst Dennis Eadie is playing the part of *?' Dizzy ' at the Royalty Theatre, London, many people will learn for the first time - what that statesman had to do with the Suez Ganal shares, Which appear so prominently and so profitably in the Budget returns and estimates, for the plot the play turns on that great transaction. , The Suez Canal, which was built by a Frenchman, Ferdinand de Lesseps, was opened for traffic in : 1869. Before that year the sole way to India Was around either Cape Horn or the Cape of Good (Hope, although the latter was much the shorter. Were the Germans and the Turks to succeed in capturing this narrow ditch, they could again make our way to the Far East many thousand miles farther. It will thus be seen, how essential to the solidarity of the Empire is the control of ;the Canal, In 1869, Britain had no hold upon Egypt. The French were indeed much more influential there. ..ilsmail . Pasha was Khedive, o...
