Wealth and Life TAXATION IS GENERAL. AN ARGUMENT REFUTED. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 14 December 1917

Wealth and Life' TAXATION IS CENERAL. AN ARCUMENT REFUTED. The opponents of reinforcements have noade the statement that while it :s desired to conscript the manhood of the country, the Government is not prepared to make wealth pay its share. This is not so. In fact, it is the exact opposite of the truth. Very' heavy increases in taxation hlavo been imposed since the outbreak of the war. Hero ore a few examples of swhat wealthy people pay in income tax alone. A person, writhout depend unts, whose income is derived entirely from personal exertion, with £1000 a rear, pays £0.10/1519. A person with C10.000 n year pays £2776i0110. One ,rith £20 000 a year pays no less thnn C0602/14/2, or nearly one-third of his necome in income tax alone. If this in come be derived from property his tax is considerab!y higher. A person in receipt of £20.000 a year pays £7733 1/4, or considerably more than one third of his total income. Then there ire the land taxes (Federal and State) under which wealth...

Why Italy Retreats TRAITORS BREAK DOWN THE ARMY. DANGER TO AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 14 December 1917

Why Italy .Retreats TRAITORS BREAK DOWN THE ARMY. DANGER TO AUSTRALIA. Fow was victory, almost in thie hands of Cadorna, changed in the twinkling of an eye to defeat, retreat, and rout? Was it through the reinforcement of the Austrian forces by Germany? It 'ans iot. There are only five half •livisions of Germans in the Austro German arnlls. Was it through overwhelming super :ority of nunmbers? It was not. Was it through some new and ter. rible device some new poison gas, some novel and frightful engine of destrue tionP No, none of these things were r:sponsiblo for the cause of victory being turned into defeat and headlong retreat. Treachery was the canouse of the de feat of the second Italian army which had been honeycombed by pro-German propaganda. They upon rwhom Italy relied, betrayed her. Mark that word treachery, and apply it to our own cir cumnstances. The agents of Germany within the gates of Italy, and not the valour of the German arms. brought about the Italian debacle. As ...

DUPING THE FARMER. A Campaign Of Lies. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 14 December 1917

DUPING THE FARMER. A Campaign of Lies. In the hope of duping the farmer an insidious campaign of lies has al ready started. The unti-reinforcements party, however, will find their task of drawing the wool over the eyes of the man on the land not so easy this time as it was on the last occnsion. The farmer has come to value at its true worth the alleged, friendship of the men who are espousing the anti cause. Altogether too recent to escape memory is the industrial upheaval that for months pnralysed Australia and levied heavy toll on the producing interests. One of the nets of the " farmers' friends" was to declare all wheat black and to make it a crime on the part of organised labour to lend wheat into the vessels waiting to carry it to Britain and the Al;ies. The farmers who went donn to the sealonrd, compelled by patriotismn to see that Britaini was not denied Australian products, were branded " black legs.' Not satisfied with iposing the emnlargn on the Ilaaldling lf foodlsatuffs...

Women, Play Your Part APPEAL BY THE COUNCIL OF WOMEN. Many will appeal to you to vote No for selfish motives. They will play upon your sympathy for their own base purposes. You must keep steadfastly before your eyes the men who are playing their part in the great struggle to free the women and children from agonies inflicted upon them by a cruel and ro lentless enemy. Those brave men, with no thought of self, are making the supreme sacri flce in the cause of humanity. They need your help. Will you doe ny It to them? Will you leave them to fight on alone, forsaken by their own flesh and blood They rely on you not to desert them. Deep down in their hearts, it is you they are flghting for. Deep down in your hearts you know that they are fighting to keep the horrors of war from you. Before their eyes are scenes of death and desolation left by the brutal invader. They eeo daily the graves of murdered women and children. In their minds is the picture of their own fair land 'their mothers,...

The Case for Reinforcements. PITHY PARAGRAPHS PRESENT THE APPEAL. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 14 December 1917

The Case for Reinforcements. PITHY PARAGRAPHS PRESENT THE APPEAL. " What has civilisation ever done for me that I should be called upon to save it?" asked an anti-reinforcements speaker. The attitude of the no-reinforce. meaonts party is, " As long as the Allies fight so bravely why ashould we?" Is other words, " tie more courageous the nloe of other nations are, the more craven we should be." A sample of the tactics of non-rein forcements ngitators in Sydney is the sulggestion that no 11an should vote Yes " unless the Government pays soldiers "a minimunl wage of 10/.- - day." Is this the no-voter's idea of tlhe sanctity of human life? All taxation is conscription of wealth. In addition to this the lives of the well-to-do are eqrrljy subject to the Governnlent scheme of reinforce. ilonts with those of their fellows less dowered with this world's goods. This is tile applivation of democracy in its itidtst and tru?et sense. The latest cry of the special pleader of the unti-reiniforcem...
