THE VICTORIAN CAMPAIGN. - ? FUSION MAJORITY ' ; *_ 'ASS. URED. ?'?* (From our own correspondont). MKuCOUHNE, Saturday. The elections are very close at hand, and amongst those who follow the same feeling 13 mining very high. How voiv small a section' of 'the community docs I realjy iutercst 'itself, ' you would hardly credit. To put down tho enthusiafts at 10 per cent, of the population is generous, but 10 per cent, of the population of Mel bourne is over 50,000,. and that number of pecplo can make an amazing noise. And, as regards uproar, the 50,000 are very ably assisted by detachments of larrikins, who wander from meeting to meeting de manding three cheers for 'Labor,' — which is good of them as labor is a thing they mortally hate, counting one-two or any unpleasant epithet that occurs to them. The Labor leaders have not chosen to put down rowdyism, so. they must think it pays. Prssumahly they are the best judges. Thc3e of us who don't know much of the hooligan are disposed to thi...

Empire's Fruit 1 Production. Lecture by Dr. McCall. Interesting Statistics. The continued efforts of the Agent General for Tasmania (Dr McCall) to disseminate abroad knowledge of the wonderful resources and fertility of this State, is conveyed by the news of fjhis doings which came to hand by the latest English mail. Ac cording to an exchange, he recently de livered a lecture before the London Society of Arts on the fruit production of the British Empire, with special reference to the superiority of the Tasmanian apple as compared with that produced in other countries. ' The growing of fruit,' said Dr. McOall, ' is quite an aristocratic occu pation, and in most countries a highly profitable one. Speaking for the State I know most about, where the growing of apples is made a very special business, quite small orchards return handsome incomes to their owners, The official estimates of returns supplied to m.e from Tasmania show a profit of about £40 per acre from apple-growing, so that...
