TRIP TO POINT CLOATES. We left Brick Home on Sunday morn ing, Jnly 1st, about 9 o'clock, driving two horses, and a native boy (Tommy) riding and leading two others. We got to Undoo, our first stopping place, for dinner, changed horses, and arrived at Mr. H. Campbell's homestead, where they are making great improvements, about half past seven p.m. Leaving there after breakfast on Monday, we arrived at Yalo bia, gave our horses a good drink, and then drove on through Mr. Musk's run.

THE EMPIRE'S DEFENCE. LONDON, July 28. In the House of Lommons yester day" Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman (Prime Minister) replying to a ques tion, stated the military garrisons at lioine naval bases bad been reduced, it was not advisable to transfer these naval bases to the Admiralty. , jlr. Edmund Robertson (Financial Secretary to the Admiralty), speaking yesterday in the House of Commons,; explained that the Government's ship building programme had been reduced by three battleships of the Dread- i Bought type, two ocean-going des- : troyers, and eight submarines. This reduction met with the full approval of the Admiralty because foreign Powers were building slowly. The programme would be increased in 1907 if the Hague Conference proved abortive with regard to tbe limitation of armaments by international agree ment. The Opposition angrily opposed the redaction.

STATE POLITICS. PERTH, ANGNSFC 1. In the House of Assembly yesterday the Colonial Treasurer moved the second reading of the Land Tax Assessment Bill. He stated there were three questions to be considered in discussing a measure for direct taxation. First, was it necessary ?

THE SEASON. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 11 August 1906
THE SEASON. THE rains which have fallen daring the past four weeks have been of in calculable benefit to pastoralists in the North. It is a common saying that the seasons are changing, and that the Northern winters are gradu ally becoming similar as regards the rainy months to those of the South. Why this should be so is a matter for the meteorologist's consideration, and most people are content to know, if they do not appreciate, the fact that daring the last decade summer rains in the North have been more erratic and winter rains have been more con sistent than previously. Up to a few weeks back the outlook for the whole of the Northern pastoralists was gloomy in the extreme, and reports coming to hand chronicled depletion of stock from the Kimberleys to the Gascoyne. But at the latter end of May the drought in the Pilbarra and Roebourne districts broke up, an average of three inches being recorded at most of the stations in the districts mentioned. This rain, however, did not ext...
