Sir,—'Some time ago the Socialistic' Federal Government had erected lo residences for Government officials at •Myilly Point, about one mile from Darwin, at from £1500 to £20.00 eac1^ or a total of £26,000. Five of these residences were to be occupied now and then for future use to keep the men on the job, and have some federal money circulated In that district. But, as they had no immediate occupiers the white ants took iposscssion, and made them unfit for human occupa* tion, and it is reported tTiat thoy may break down , any day. These 15 houses, if built by open competition, would probably have cost less than one-third of the money. This is an example of how the Labor Party, who call themselves economists, squan der the people's money. Another re port says that three men on a Federal Governmeut job of fencing in Darwiu put up as many as "eight" posts in a day. That means just putting tl\e posts up without wiring or completing...
