^ ' T ii v WEST ÄISTMJMM. VIOILAKS ET AUDAX PERTH, TUESDAY, SEPT. 7,1880. THE Council is greatly indebted to His Excellency the GOVEBJTOB for having com- municated by Message his decision in regard to the Audit Bill, instead of reserv- ing the announcement until the prorogation speech, when further action in the matter would not have been possible. The appeal to the SECBETABY OF STATE which must follow upon His Excellency's determina- tion to withhold his assent from the Bill, will place the Imperial Government in pos- session of the reasons which have induced the Legislature during its present session to take decided action in regard to along standing grievance-illegal expenditure on the part of the Government. It is not our intention to discuss His EXCELLENCY'S Message at length, but to one portion of paragraph 7 it is advisable that we should allude ; the remaining para- graphs do not call for special remark, and will probably be dealt with in the memorial which the Council doubt...

The question of the cession of Dulsigno to the Turka by the Albanians continues to occupy Eublic attention.
