(From our own tConigndent)'; The State Parliament is ip,: and members are busily seekling the. suf frages of the free anid enlightened. Mr. Elmslie, leader of the Labor Op position, has made his :iolicy'speech to a comparatively small crowd, who represented the public -in that they were not particularly interested' in the matter. Of his speech: doubt less your readers have:been' fully ad v'sed of his policy. The last State Labor conference is the'aithor. It appears that we are to have a Legis lative Council chosen on adult suf frage, which, if we take the Senate as a guide,' will mean that for all future time the Council is to be the bulwark of Laborand not the saucer in' which the legislative tea has to cool. Labor does not propose to impose extra taxation for "ordinary State purposes," which we may take tomean- that as inWestern Austra lia an attempt was made to balance thebudget by the imposition of what was called a war sulper-income tax, so we shall have extra taxation from Mr....

The Governor, IHerr Schrameyer, was particularly anxious to prevent the development of -land specuilation, which he had ' known to strangle other German colonies sooed after being taken over.
