Republicanism. WHAT IT MEANS. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 2 February 1917

Republicanism. WHAT IT MEANS. Republicanism, Republicanism, Repub licanism — that is the word whiich has crept into the hearts of many of the highest officials in the Labor movement. At the outset, we do not wish to infer that all Laborites are republicans, for tens of thousands are as loyal as it is possible to fee. But the danger is that their dictators, 'the lords and masters who dominate the Trades Halls throughout the country, are of that frame of mind. Those men are cunning enough to know that if they openly advocated republi canism at once their followers might see them as others see them, and then their days would be ended. Knowing this, they are ingeniously intriguing in a man ner which is not quite so blatant. Never theless, it is there, and anyone can see it if they will. The railwaymen opened the eyes of many when they passed that ? resolution in favor of the abolition , of the Governors and the establishment' of an elective President. They went a bit too far for the pre...

Conscription at the Front. IF THE BOYS HAD ANOTHER VOTE. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 2 February 1917

Conscription at the Front. IF THE BOYS HAD ANOTHER VOTE. Mrs. E. J. Lucy, of Merthyr-road, New Farm, has received two interesting let ters from her son Roy, of the Trench Mortar Brigade, in which he refers to the soldiers' vote on the conscription issue. He says: 'We have just received a ballot paper for conscription business, and judging by the publlic feeling in Aus tralia as expressed by the papers, they are going to get a surprise when our votes are returned, because it will be na emphatic 'No.' If there are to be exemp tions from active service, let them be: — (1)*' Medically unfit; (2) under 21 and over 45; (3) sole support of family; (4) those with business affecting State af -faiirs. ^-They won't get anything but 'No' from us while there are big, hulking wasters who could come without con scription.,' In his second letter he writes: — 'Since leaving our last bit of the front our bri gade marched close on 40 miles, then in the train, then about 15 miiles more marching, during...

Where Socialism Failed. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 2 February 1917

Where Socialism Failed. (By STEWART GRAHAME) [The 'National Leader' will publish, from week .to week, extracts from Stewart Grahame's work, 'Where . Socialism Faliled.'] The effect of this manifesto, coupled with the prospectors' report, was electri cal. With passionate eagerness thou sands clamor, ed for a place in the great', exodus, convinced that worry and want and social inequality would have no place in New Australia. But many, like the vminer man lin the Serintures. 'went awav sorrowful' when they heard the financial conditions. Since equality was the very essence of Lane's scheme, it was ordained that every man who joined must put into the common treasury every penny he possessed. Businesses, houses, ?land, all must be sold and the proceeds handed over. As a mark of bona fides every male member, on joining the asso ciation, was required to pay down the sum of £10, which was non-returnable, and before he could set sail from Aus tralia each man must make up his con tribution t...

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

CONSCRIPTION. The State Premier (Mr. T. J. Ryan) had something to say last week in reply to Sir Wr'Uiam Irvine's suggestion that another appeal should be made to the country on the question of conscription. Mr. Ryan said he differed entirely with | Sir William Irvine's views. He was of opinion that an appeal on that (issue would result in a larger majority against conscription than was recorded on the vote of October 28. The 'National Leader,' in common with many other journals which favored conscription, entirely disagrees wiith Mr. Ryan/ One of the grounds for such dis agreement is that numbers of soldiers re cently returned are emphatic in thei^ advocacy of conscription. Many of those who voted in the negative tell us that they were entirely ignorant, when they registered their vote, of the real condi tions obtaining in Australia. When they returned and realised the true situation ?they regretted having been so easily igulled into voting against the only prac tical method of rein...

I've tried my best per Douamont, And also St. Mihiel, But every tiime I've tried I've ran Against a wall of steel. 'I've fired some hundred thousand shells, Large, medium, and small, And sacrificed quite half. my men, And yet in spite of all I've done, the French are holding firm, And firmer grow each day. It makes me mad to think they will Not get out of my way. 'I've bombed their lines from Zeppelins, I've done my best with gas, I've tried to break their strong: defenr.e With reguments en masse, I've used up all my liquid fire, Failed in the mines I've laid ; It . strikes me very strongly that I do not know my trade.'

An English "Explanation" of the Anzacs. THE SECRET OF THEIR CHARM. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 2 February 1917

An English 'Explanation' of the Anzacs. THE SECRET OF THEIR CHARM. The Anzacs have certainly stamped themselves on the British imagination, not only by their fighting qualities, but by their look, their bearing, their physi- , cal grace. In the 'Daily Mail,' Sir Leo Chiozza Money, M,P., says that the An 7Q OC ihovo OTlTTftH Vt-ni 4- v%.*\ 4. _ 4.1* J..11 u cl ui ttr tut: UUIi London streets by their very presence,' and he undertakes to explain, why. They are 'alert, keen-eyed, picturesque. Some thing, doubtless, they gain from hats which are calculated to set off the beauty of either man or woman, but in nearly every case the features under the hat are good— the nose and chin strong, the eyes bright and alert. As for the size of them, it is rarely that one meets an Anzac short enough to be described as of middle size, and I have never seen a small one. I am not seeking to dispraise our own men by comparison; far from it. Our men, indeed, are among the finest looking soldiers the wor...

What is a "Tank" Like ? "LAND CRUISERS" IN THE BATTLE OF THE SOMME. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 2 February 1917

What is a ' Tank ' Like ? 'LAND CRUISERS' IN THE BATTLE OF THE SOMME. ' 'Tanks,' they have been dubbed by the mass of British fighting men at the front; but among the more discerning minority they have more aptly 'been set down as 'land cruisers,' ' says the 'Scien- tific American.' 'And such in truth they are, as a brief study of the photograph of the new war machine that annears as the frontispiece to this issue will show. For, like the fighting ship of the seas, it is built solely of steel, and from deck to keel is plated with armor sufficient to protect its vitals against such projectiles as as likely to come its way. 'Dissect the naval cruiser, and you will find that its vfctals (engines, maga zines, steering-gear, &G.) are contained within a sort of inverted armored box, consisting of sides, ends, and roof. So in ithe land cruiser the engines, fuel tanks, steering gear, ammunition supply — to say nothing of the crew — are all snugly sheltered from the bullets of the en...
