The Akaroa Mail. FRIDAY, MARCH 31, 1916. STRIKES ON THE CLYDE.
The deportation of six strike leaders on the Clyde will meet with the hearty support of all true patriots. The men concerned have not the support of the Trade Unions and one must only conclude that they wish to stop the production of munitions They are really guilty of treason and it is not perhaps too far fetched an idea to accuse them of being in the German pay. The sowing of discord in our communities has been carried out systematically for years by the German spy organisation and ii ; would be greatly to the Huns advantage to tamper with the output of munitions. If not actually in receipt of German pay, the strike leaders who have tried so energetically to upset the smooth running of these munition factories are co-operat-ing with the enemy. The prompt action of Mr Lloyd ' 00-fro i-n asking the military to : remove thn dx ringleaders'will ' have :•: poc-d eP'col and it is to ''?-? th'i' f.he Government's : firm stand will mean the prevention of future labour troubles. Every ounce of strength put into the struggle against the , German military despots, means the quicker cessation of war and th«; earlier arrival of that peace • which will be so welcome to all.
