COUMANDEUtMICG A CAsiLE ,(From Our Special Representative). London, Nov. B0. Old truths do not hold in these days. "An Englishman's house is his pastle." Not so, however, in war times when billeting officers are about. A Barnes man was fined £5 the other day for refusing aocom inodation in his private residence to soldiers in want of bed and board. He was more fortunate than a citizen of a northern town, who -was recently mobbed by the populace for.. similar 'unpatriotic conduct. All classes have 'to fulfil national requirements. The, Govern ment have commandeeredfithe Duke of Bucc'.euch's famous' t.d.~*n resi dence, Mon.a gue House.- Whitehall, for an extension ol the Ministry of Munitions. No pirt.ion' of the house is to be reserved' for the duke's per Ronal use, and the treasures of this -historical mansion are in process of removal to orie of the family's country sea.'s. No other 1private residence in London occupies such an interesting site. As early as 1240 Huber de Burcgh bui...

EMPLOYMENT OF CIVIL ENGINEERS Perth, Jan. 8. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 16 January 1917

,." / Perth Jan. 8. Acting~oen .ehalf of the Austra lian Assaeiafioq of Civil Engineers, Mr. Ed istob yesterday waited upon the Federal Minister for Railways and Works, Senator Lynch, and 1 urged that a much larger number of professional engineers engaged on Federal works within the State should be placed on the permanent staff of the Commonwealth. The Minister, in reply, said that the public works were of such an intermittent character that the employment of a permanent staff would be most inconvenient and costly from a departmental point of view. The work fluctuated _n volume from time to time, and if a large permanent stfaff were em ployed, the department would be in the position of employing such staff permanently, when, during . slack.; times, there would be little or no work to do. The best adjustment would appear to be to have the per manent staff of such dimensions as would be able to cope with the work in its varying proportions, employing in a temporary capacity the balanc...

FEIEIAL - POLITICAL SIT4UATION . ,- Melbourne, Jan. 12. assumed a new phase, as a conversa tion again itook place between the Prime Minister and Mr. Cook. Sub sequently both Leaders announced that meetings of their respective parties would be held next week. Mr. Cook left in the. afternoon for Sydney, and will come back early next Week. Mr, Hughes simply said that he had . seen Mr. Cook, and the two had arranged to call meetings of their respective parties to consider suggestions arising out of the poli tical situation. He.declined to dis cuss the question further. In Liberal circles generally there seems to be a strong disposition against going any further -than an agreement between' the two parties with regard to the selection of can didates for the election. It is not impossible that the question of leaderdhip will be raised at the Liberal meeting, but, in the absence of the slightest information about the nature of to-day's conversation it is impossible to say what wi]l happen. ...
