THE CIVIL SERVICE BOARD. To the Editor. Sir — The Government having appointed a Civil Service Board to. report upon the departments of tho States their report should embrace the Question of retirine al lowances to Government servants. Parlia ment seemed to have a desire when in ses sion to have this much vexed question pro perly enquired into and. settled once for all. From the reports of the speeches of several members upon the retiring allow ances it would appear that either the Act of 1874 or ihe amending Act of 1881 is very indefinite— so much so that able lawyers differ regarding the actual construction of both. Mr. Homburg and Mr. Wood have declared that compensation should be paid to cml servants to the 'Mmc of the passing of the Act of 1881, and the speeches made on the introduction of the measure confirm this. It would therefore .be only just for the GivU Service Board to impartially en quire into and if possible permanently settle this important matter, which con-, cerns t...

The latest report concerning the Duka ami Duchess of Cornwall and York to Aus tralia is that it will take place as pre viously arranzed. and that the Onhir is to start on her voyage about March 30.

Moreover, a number of squares, like those in Adelaide, would be an excellent feature, as they pro vide lungs and places of convenient .report for many, whereas parks can only be'' few. ?
