THE WATT MINISTRY'S PROGRAMME. The programme of the new Wull Ministry, as outlined by the Premier in his Esscndon speech, is one that will commcud itself to country Liberals. Its principal planks are a sustained policy of railway extension and re newed efforts to encourage immi grants who will settle and work in the country districts. A country Ministry, intent on serviog the best interests of the State, will find a useful field for service in these enterprises. Ouc of the serious hindcrances to national progress in Victoria, as indeed in nearly all the other Australian Slates, is the undue, not to say alarming, aggregation of population in the State capital. Melbourne contains more than a third of the population of the State, and the same abnormal pro portion is found in the six capital cities of Australia, when compared with the population of the Common wealth. Thus, in effect, the develop ment of the rural industries of the continent on which the prosperity of the whole community...
