AUSTRALIAN NEEDS. DOMINION COMMISSION'S RE PORT. LONDON, Tuesday. The Dominions' .Commission report 5 states that the most urgent problem t' in Australasia concerns. the better dis- b tribution 'of." the population, and irp-. a proved overseas communication. At t present the dominions spend a great ' deal of money, with doubtful success, r in attempts to • secure .agricultural workers. It is, therefore, -natural to J suggest that some portion of this 'ex penditure could be 'more profitably _ spent by bearing with the mother coun try a share of the cost of some system - of Government farms for testing and training in the United Kingdom. This scheme would be.easier if immigration. were .under central control. Australasia mainly requires. youths with adaptability. This requirement could be met equally from the towns 3 as the country if' suitable training.was I provided. . :Although Australasia -.needs more domestic servants, the Commission is unable to endorse the view that. a consider...

CABLEGRAMS. EMUTEE*B BPECOIAB. HOIE RULE. MR O'BRIEN'S CHALLE NGE. DECLINED BY NATIONALISTS, LONDON, Monday. The Irish Nationalists have decided not to contest the Cork seat in the House of Commons, which has been ren dered vacant by Mr William u'Brien, leader of the Independent Nationalists.

Mr J'Brieu has therefore been re-elect Ad unopposed, and his followers are jubilant over this victory. (In concluding a speech at Water .ord on Saturday night, Mr John Red miond, M.P. (leader of the Irish Nation alists), declared that a contest be tween two Nationalists at the present ..ioment would be a scandal, and a seri ,us blow to toe Home Rule cause.)
