The Goulburn Valley Seat. MR McOLELLAND AT NAT BA LI A. Mr A. McB. McClelland, one of the candidates for the .Goulbum Valley aeat addressed a fair attendance at the Pub lic Hall, Or P. H, Furze occupied the chair. The candidate said he had fally made up his mind to contest the seat. He intended to stand in the Liberal interest and h8 was not associated with the People's Party or the A.W.N.L. The fact that preferential voting had been adopted by the State was the reason why he had not submitted his name to those two parties. He would if returned be a supporter of the present Liberal Gov ernment. At the present time there were practically three parties. There had been friction, and this had delayed Liberal measures. When Mjt Watt tried to force the country party he showed that he had lacked discretion. He was in favor of elective Ministries, as they would give the country the bene fit of the best brsin3 in the House. The members elected the Ministers and they he'd office for the full ...

We are a very n^i'ry crowd, and the holiday is passing all too quickly. We left Charing Cross station on. the 8th April and the journey down through Kent was char ming. To an Australian, the wild flowers are a revelation in England, and on the Continent. Three train loads of people reached the boat at Folkestone. The crossing to Cologne was rather eventful for many, as it was very rough. That part of the jonrney occnpied an hour and a quarter, bat to some I'm sure it felt like hoars. I escaped mal de-mer, ba...

CORRESPONDENCE. BENEFIT FOOTBALL MATCH, To the Editor. Sir,—I hesitate to rash into p int, bat on this occasion my pent-np feelings will brook no delay. I have just been scanning tbe Dames of the football team for next Wednesday, and find mine among the emergency men only, and 1 ask, Why ? Sorely the selection com mittee could not have known my record. I do not know who constitutes that committee, but I can only say with Mil ton, " Not to know me argues them selves unknown." But in this case their ignorance is their crime ; they ought to have known or inquired, and they would have discovered the incongruity. The idea is unthinkable ! I do not sug gest that 1 should have been chosen to captain the team, though that would have been more consistent with my claims. But an emergency man ! It's altogether infra dig. My grievance is accentuated when I read the names of the picked men. I don't like to be per sonal.. hnt .kaGtriug - Sus (save the mark ') cf some of them I smile and—well, lea...
