Sir Julian Salomons, M.L.C., is to address a mee.ting in Sydney on May 16 under the auspices of tho Colonists' Anti-Convention Bill League. Mr. Lyue continued tbe AntiOon ?vontion Bill oampiign at Narrabri on Saturday ni^ht, when, he addressed a meeting at the local Town-hall. The 80,000 votes required for the bill are a minimum.

Mr. Barton has received a telegram from Mr. Kingston, the South Austra lian Premier, Etating that there is no justification for fixing the cost of Federal rivfrnce at £750,000 instead of £585,000.
