TOUR OF MR. D. D. SMITH Mr. D. D. Smith, an important officer of the Department of In terior, has been on a tour around the west end of the Territory to see the repairs made after the ravishing- rains some time back. This department has at last de cided to make a lot of new roads, and has even finished the Granites road and made a tfood job of it. The fact that it took only 15 years to do the job is a mere sideline. With the number of new graders Prir.on Visitor : How lonp; are you here for ? Convict : I don't know. 'IJut the judtfe must have told you when he passed sentence ?'?' 'He didn't know himself,' « 'Impossible !'

Had this policy been adopted earlier, the expenditure of the millions of pound:; referred to by Mr. Casev, may not have been so futile. It is to be hoped that in the de termination of future policy, the immense potential wealth of our mineral resources will not be overlooked. It is a well known fact that the mining industry in our other States pioneered the way for more intensive settlement. The development alone, of the compara tively small area with which I am conversant, namely, Hatches Creek, ' Jervois Range, Harts Range and Arltunga areas, could easily support communities equal in total to the entire p...
