(prom our own correspondent') Mr. Reid'a Federation speech has caused a good deal of commotion in §onae quarters. He w&a supported on the platform by some members of Parliament who do not approve of tbe preeent BilL They were " Hold*' over tbe speech, for up to the very last they were in doubt as to which way the Premier would advise his hearers to vote. Excited groups are to be oeen at Parliament House any morning during the week, but nothing very serious is expected to come of it. An advertisement calling for a leader of the Freefcrade Party appeared in both the morning papers, but no appli cations have been received ; the terms can hardly be considered good enough. & # While the new leader was in .power he would draw a good thing certainly, but most of our leading business, men Would apply for something more in the nature of a " sure thing" if even the ealary were not so high. Of course these goings on are all bombast. Federation is not a party question, and Mr. R...
