A GLORIOUS FAILURE. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 26 January 1917

A GLORIOUS FAILURE. I 'Still,' our enemies say, 'you did not win the Peninsula.' We- did not; and some day, when truth will walk clear eyed, it will be known why we dM not. Until then, let our enemies say this: 'They did not win, but they came across three thousand miles of sea, a little army without reserves and short of ammuni tion, a band of brothers, half of them half-trained, and nearly all of them new to war. They came to what we said was an impregnable fort on which our vete rans of war and massacre had labored for two months, and by sheer naked man Jtiood they beat us and drove us out of it. Then, rallying, but without reserves, they beat us again and drove us farther. Then, rallying once more, but still without re serves, they beat us1 again, this 'time to our kniees. Then, had they had reserves, .they would have conquered, but by God's pity they had none. Then, after a lapse of time, when we were men again, 'they had reserves, and they hit us a stagger ing blow which neede...

RETURNED SOLDIER TO STAND FOR SENATE. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 26 January 1917

RETURNED SOLDIER TO STAND FOR SENATE. ? The majority of Federal members re gard any solution of the political prob lem outside a general .election as im probable. In spite of the fact that the official Labor party is averse to any form of co-operation with the other two par ties, however, it is not impossible that a general election may be averted. The present situation would seem, however, to call for drasitic measures, and the only drastic measure in sight is a general election. If Parliament decides on an appeal to the country there can be no doubt that the election will be fought on the conscription issue. In Queensland it may be that the sectarian question will be dragged into the conflict, though it would be deplorable to have candi dates slanging each other on that issue. As announced recently by the 'Leader,' the Returned Soldiers and Patriots' National Political League intends nomi nating a candidate for the Brisbane seat (to oppose Mir. W. F„ Finlayson. The name of ithe pr...

Need for a National Party. Mr. HUGHES'S LOGIC. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 26 January 1917

Need for a National Party. Mr. HUGHES'S LOGIC. When Mr. Hughes and Ms supporters first mooted the formation of a National Federation, Which, was to be the parent body of a National party in Australian politics, several objections were raised by political bodies now lin existence. The Liberal party, for instance, wanted to know why such, a federation was neces sary- when the Liberal party was avail able. The Prime Minister has disposed of that objection. In Ms speech at the opening of the Geelong branch of the Federation 'he saJild : 'I do not doubt that ithe Lib.erai party stands solidly for a vigorous prosecution of the war, and for the solidarity of the Empire, but it also stands far other things — 'party things — which are at present subsidiary, but which are nevertheless there. How, for example, can I, as Prime Minister, join ithe Liberal party organisation? I am not a Liberal I have all my public 'life been a member of the Labor party, and have not spared myself in its service....

We should like to know: [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 2 February 1917

t ' We should like to know: Who will be the chosen of the Federal Cabinet to represent Australia at the forthcoming Imperial Conference? What the anti-conscriptionists think of their pet scheme for securing recruits? Why the fear of striikes should prevent the Northern farmers enlisting? Why the people of Australia refuse to reinforce their mates in the trenches? Winy the people of Brisbane , are satis fied to elect aldermen unopposed when they are always crying about the state of the streets and ferries? Why the principle of payment for aldermen should be dragged into local politics? Why the Trades Hall party do not put all their energy (into securing recruits instead of wasting their time on ques tionable experiments? What will happen if the new recruiting campaign fails?

WAR. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 2 February 1917

WAR. A cancer 'neath the heart of history, Begotten of ill blood in idle ease, Inflamed with wanton sloth, and fed with lees From empty wine-cups: years of luxury Breed such a tempest in the symmetry Of wealthy nations as fills every vein With fierce fermenting passlions, which disdaan The .timid hand of tender remedy. So gather might, until there comes a day When, bursting outward, all the fell disease, Laid broadly bare tin hideous nakedness, Knows no alleviation or release, Save in destruction, with the long distress Of after-scars to mark the healer's way. — A.T.M.W. Ex-N.C.O., A.I.F. Anti-Hun: If all Australian business men are as patriotic as they profess to be, Germany will be ruled out as a cus tomer of Australia when the war is over. If, on the other hand, the 'business men are not what they profess to be, Germany goods will find a home lin many an Aus tralian warehouse. Let's hope this war will mean the end of German commer cial influence in this country.

Imperial Federation. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 2 February 1917

Imperial Federation. The Imperial Conference which is to be held in London during the early part of this year is one of the most important steps ever taken by British statesmen towards the cementing of the bonds whlich bind the dominions with the motherland. The war has so bound Great Britain and her dominions (together that it is impossible for ,the old slack methods to continue after peace is declared. Mr. Hughes says it is imperative that Aus tralia should be directly represented, as Mr. Lloyd George's speech made it clear ?that the representatives of the dominions would deal with matters absolutely vital to Australia and to the Empire. There ?can be no gainsaying the fact .that ques tions of vital importance to Australia and (the EmpEre will be discussed, but, judg ing by the unwillingness of Federal Cabi net Ministers ,to discuss the question of a representative other than in the ab stract, it is evident that these 'matters of vital importance' are regarded !by our brilliant po...

Words! Words!! Words!!! HOW RYAN HELPED RECRUITING. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 2 February 1917

Words! Words!! Words!!! HOW RYAN (HELPED RECRUITING. There were five speakers at a big meet ing in Market-square on Wednesday, and the burden of their cry was; 'Give us deeds, not words.' They spoke to a not unappreciative crowd which surged round the temporary platform. Mr. Ryan, the only Brlitish Premier, accord ing to the English papers, who has en deavored, to enlist, was the first speaker to . be introduced fey the chairman, Aid. Hetherington, who has just been, re I [ elected mayor of the city. The Premier cannot congratulate himself on the re ception accorded him; nor can he be con gratulated on the speech he made. He ?based his opening remarks on the pre mises that every man whose responsibili ties would permit should offer his ser vices. The remark was greeted with cries of 'Why don't you go?' He told the audience that unless the people of Australia buried all animosity they would not get the men. He was courageous enough to tell the people that he would, if the conscriptli...

COMFORT FIRST. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 2 February 1917

COMFORT FIRST, 'Don't you hear the children weeping, O I my brothers, Ere the sorrow comes with years? They are weeping in the playtime of the - others In this country, of the free.' The New York 'Outlook' says that the doctrine of 'safety first,' which President Wilson has preached in many words, and on which he has acted throughout his whole tenure of office, has become to many people a . maxim of .spiritual de generation, a shield for meanness of spirit and the cowardice that eats the heart out of character:. 'Too many Americans demand that the world shall let them alone in the endeavor to make life easy -and pleasant; tlfey resent any interruption of wihat has become, as the result of a great prosperity, an irrespon sible 'joy ride.'
