Beston) presided over Crs. Graham and Bradley and a number of the townspeople. In proposing the toast of the "departing guest," the chairman re called the occasions on which he last sat as a fellow councillor at the same table with Mr. Hartrey, and was eulogistic of the conscientious motives and business-like qualities which had characterised that gentle man throughout his term of office.

SENATOR DE LARGIE'S VIEWS Perth, Jan. 3. The Federal members now in this State are daily expecting an im- portant declaration by the Prime Minister, Mr. Hughs, in connection with the Federal political situation. In regard to the proposed Imper- ial Conference, to be held in Eng- land, and to which overseas repre-   sentatives have been invited; Sena tor De Largie said, to-day :--"With all due respect to other Australian public men I say that there is no   other man whose influence would be so great at a gathering of this kind as the present Prime Minister. Aus- tralian interests will be involved in the peace negotiations and settle- ment and any party that will use its power to put obstacles in the   way of Mr. Hughes attending to the national interests during the war will deserve the strongest condemn-   ation.

IA NATIONAL FEDERAL MINISTRY 1 EFFORTS TOWARDS ACCOM PLISHMENT. "Ithuriel," in the Melbourne "Argus" of December 23 writes A heroic effoit is 'being made by Sir John Forrest and Mr. Chap man to pave the way towards the formation of a national Ministry, in which the Liberal lamb shall lie down with the Caucus lion and the little Ministerial child led by Mr. Hughes shall play with both of them unharmed. Sir John has af firmed at Horsham that such a party and Ministry should be formed, and Mr. Chapman has given notice of motion that such. a. party "should be at once established." It is a pathetically hopeless and artless en deavour on the part of two gentle men, who doubtless feel that in pre I sent circumstances they are not giv ing such prominent service to their country as they might otherwise do. Colonel Saunderson said in the House of Commons that the British Government had disestablished the Irish Church, and sold her posses sions. They had converted Protes tant bishops into tram...
