The trouble 'between the officers of the 99th Regiment and the citizens of Zabern, in Alsace-Lorraine, is likely to have important political results.

At the -meeting of the Ararat Bor ough Council last night, a letter was read from.the secretary of the Ararat Athletic Club, asking the council if it could see its way to reduce the charge made for the use of the Recreation Reserve for New Year's Day. The club was not a financially strong one, and found that when they came to pay £30 or £40 for the use of the ground, their profit on the day's meet ing was- practically absorbed.
