LABOUR DISSENSION SENATOR RAE'S POSITION | ? . I Sydney, January 8. A move has been made in certain labour quarters to prevent Senator Eac from participating in meetings of the Federal Labour Caucus because of tho campaign he has conducted on behalf of the rank-and-file faction against the officials of the Australian Labor Party.

They include tun nels under the English Channel and under the Strait of Gibraltar, and a railway acress the Sahara, which en gineers claim should have results as important as those of the Panama Canal and the Siberian and Canadian Pacific railway. : The Spanish Governmeril's~fechnical commission is now reporting on the Gibraltar tunnel, which would have one terminal at Algeciras and the other in Spanish Morocco. France's contribution would be a railway across the Sahara, which would cost £10,000,000. If the material Were ob tained from Germany unde rthe Dawes j plan, the cost might be reduced by j one-third.

i '3Th-- (gernlbUnt \ (BirarMsm & (£xpree& ! THURSDAY, JANUARY 10, 13--9 CORRUPTION IN HIGH PLACES. For several generations British com munities have prided themselves upon the consistently stainless honour of those entrusted with conduct' of public affairs. There has been in the mind of every Briton a feeling of pity, not wholly unmixed with contempt, for those benighted nations which suffer from corruption in high places. It has always been felt that there was some thing very much amiss with the system which permitted wholesale corruption in America, and with the type of pub lic man whose lack of principle per mitted him to do venal things in ab use of his trust. In common with the other dominions, Australia has inher ited from Great Britain a very clean and high tradition of public service, and of scrupulous honour on the part of those in authority. For two genera tions it seemed that this high tradi tion was to be preserved inviolate, but recent events — particul...
