Telephone Service in Country Districts. STATEMENT BY THE CHIEF i ELECTRICAL ENGINEER. (By C. E. H.) The Chief Electrical Engineer, of the Central Administration Staff, of the Postmaster-General's Department, has made the follow ing statement : PUBLIC MAY ERECT THEIR OWN . LINES. It appears to be the impression in parts of Australia, that the Post and Telegraph Department will not allow would-be Telephone users to erect tlioir own lines. The Department does allow people to erect Telephone lines for themselves. Indeed it would appear to be impassible for the Department to do otherwise in many country districts." "Speaking generally, the Post master - General reserves the right to construct any Telephone wunin a town boundary There are, however, surveyed townshiDs which are not closely settled, in which it may be advis "for Clio I u.sers to oroct the whole of such f line*, oven up to the Post Office." *41"«- U o Imnti cn^ Kir enmA I i r. nay ueuu aaiu uy auiu farmers that they do not k...

Defence of the Commonwealth. ADMINISTRATIVE WORK. I General Hamilton's report on the milit.iry forces of the Com monwealth shows that in the matter of defence there is much for the Liberal Ministry to do. When in office the Labor Party displayed a praiseworthy deiro to lay "the foundations of an army and of a navy, which should make Australia safer from Foreign attack. B'lt, so much said, it has been frankly pointed out that much of General Hamilton's re port is a condemnation of past business method?, a plea for wiser administration in the tuture. The General insists that Aus tralia's army must have a busi ness branch under a comptroller with a quarter-master general as second in command. It would ho amongst the duties of tins branch to watch expenditure closely to neo that Common wealth , thousands go whore neod is great est, not necessarily where de mand is moot urgent.
