In view of the ideas which are at present swimming about in the head of the Defence Department in regard to the breeding of horses, it may be useful to take a glance at what is being done in this direction in Great Britain.

The award of premiums to stal lions. 2. Grants for the purchase of half bred working mares for loca tion in selected districts; ? 3. Free nomination for suitable mare for service by premium or approved stallions j 4. The purchase (for re-sale) of stallions; 5. The voluntary registration of stallions.

A WARNING FOR AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 3 March 1911
A WARNING FOR AUSTRALIA. An American visitor to New Zea land, Mi1. Whitmore Preston, after observant travelling through the Do minion, sounds a word of warning concerning labour laws. It is equally applicable to Australia. Mr. Preston said to a "Napier Telegraph" repre sentative: "In talking with some of your pro minent men I learned how much the conditions of a labouring man and his family have been improved by legislation, but when I look at the increase in the cost of living, I am wondering if the worker realises that what he is putting into one pocket he must be taking out of the other, and the best thing for him and the country is a wage exactly in pro portion to the cost of living. If he receives more than his share some one else is not getting a square deal, and a square deal to everyone is a condition whicli makes for the great est prosperity of any country. By a square deal I mean justice in every respect-an honest day's labour for an honest day's pay. To obtain this result...

DECENTRALISATION. Evidence of the Chief Commissioner of Railways. The Chief Commissioner gave evi dence before the Decentralisation Commission on Wednesday. Mr. Johnson said lie considered the best, route for railway 'communication be tween the North-West and a port north of Trial Bay, would be from Inverell, through Guyra and Guy Fawkes, to join at Dorrigo, the rail way already sanctioned between Dor rigo and Glenreagh. He said the pro posed line from the neighbourhood of Walcha to Woodside, on the North Coast line, would give the best com munication with Port Stephens. If a port was fixed upon at Jervis Bay, it was undesirable, at present, to con sider any intermediate ports north of Twofold Bay. The survey known as Postle's route, would serve more set tlements in regard to the establish ing of a port at Eden. He considered there were absolutely no duplications or great reductions at present in con templation which could in any. way; be avoided or deferred if any or all the propos...
