INTERCOLONIAL FREETRADE. At Launceston ( Tas.) a few days eince Lord Brassey Bpoke strongly of the -'desirableness of intercolonial freetrade. Each colony, he said, wanted the widest „ .possible market for its products, and each ,'' „, certainly wanted a wider market than its \ '''own. ' He would be sorry to see fettera* - i ' tiott carried to such a point as to destroy the local flelf-govemraent of the coloni- g jju* $&v eoillS tow f94w#«i fw i^fenc^ and other purposes, including a common tariff, without undertaking to deal with subjects best dealt with locally. It had been asserted that the colonies federated must make over to the Federal Govern ment all the Customs revenue and excise. He did not think this necessary, as the colonies might agree to maintain certain defence forces and to contribute to the cost of a Federal Government. Both sides of English politicians were anxious to see the colonies federated. Mr. Cham berlain had spoken in that direction recently, and the...

ALIEN HAWKERS IN SYDNEY. The question of dealing with the licenses of Syrian and Indian hawkers was considered at the Central Licensing Court, Sydney, by a full bench of magis trates on Monday. Mr. Addison, S.M., chairman, said that the- Bench bad gone fully into this matter of granting hawkers' licenses to aliens, and though complaints were rife regarding the cjnduct of ceitam hawkers, none had been made either in the city or She country against Syrians. The men Baid (o be guilty of intimidation were Afghans and ' Chutney men ' from Indh. The police reports generally were favorable to the hawkers, and it was the intention of the Bench, therefore, to re new the whole of the licenses. Oat of 202 applications only nine were new, and therefore it could not be said that the country was being flooded by aliens. When the Bench came to deal with the licenses it found that 23 applications had been withdrawn, leaving 179 to be con sidered, and the whole of these, with fie exception of seven,...

THE SOUTH AFRICAN COMMISSIONERS. Messrs. Walter Halse and J.

Mr Halne said he could hardly express his admiration of the manner in. which the dairy-farming industry is carried on at Coolangatta. If he could transport the whole apparatus, system, and everything connected with it to South Africa, ho holds thab it would be a better investment than any of the best diamond mines thab particularly diamondiferous country could offer.
