Description :
There was intense debate in Australia over conscription during the First World War. Twice Prime Minister Billy Hughes attempted to force the issue to be passed, but both times referendums on the issue failed. In 1917, prior to the second referendum, the local branch of the Australian Labor Party printed this newspaper.
