The House rose" at 1.5 a.m.

(Continued from. Yesterday).From the coal producer's■point 01

view, the first'necessity for the de-

velopment of his industry is that theriver should be cleared. Snaggingisbadly wanted. The last tjhree or fourmiles, just below the mines, require agreat deal of improvement. Improv-ed wharf arrangements at the mi?iesare also desirable,but these could beprovided by the miningpeople, andgo doubt would be if the river per-mitted sufficient traffic. It is consid-ered that the Governmentshould as-sist inclearing the river.

On the other hand, what seems afar moreurgent matter is the openingof tihe vast-area -of Country on eitherside of the river. For forty jnilesalong the left (Taranaki) side of t»heriver from the sea the lapel is lookedup in the notorious "Mofcau Jomes"estate, containing some 56,000 acres.The only thing being done on thislarge tract of country is a littlefoit ofsawmillmg —

a mere flea-bite. Wihycannot the Government, acquire thisblock,and open it for settlement? Itcontains splendid land for farming,wliilst there' are to be found q|oal,lime, fire-clay, etc., and fi(ne belts oftimber. All these lands, if setjtled,would be served by ifhe river, andwithp'eoplethere who wofuUd make aneffort to help themselves there mightbea chance of assistance fr!om tjhe Go*vernment. This land tijow pays acertain amount of county rates, andif opened up would also contributeother rates, besides bringing in landfund revenue to the New Plymouthharbour. On the other side of theriver (in the Auckland Province, bythe way) there is a smiall strip ofCrown land, ext«jjding about fqurmiles up from the sea. Then fofr a-bout ten miles the country is still inthe hands of the natives, amd we cometo what isknown- as Owen's lease,with about two miles of river front-age. The next six miles of country isleased by the Colliery Company, who,are theonly otaes doing anything...Thewhole of - this - fine tract of countryshould also be acquiredJay the Go-vernment arid,qpened Up to settle-ment. That being done, .nothingcbujj&hinder the .progress of /the- (dis-trict. Now there are a few petoplescattered,about along the coast,h'pld-ing blocks of splendid land. Theyhave no road, or next to no road,and are ever agitating for somethingto be done. They want the Gqverh-ment to make good*oads, to b|uild awharf at Mokau township, to fe/uiW. abridge over tihe river, atnd to improvethe bar. All these iftrings are very (ne-cessary, too, but tihe settlers do no-thing to assist,themselves. Tifue,they built an- apology for a whiarf,givingapersonal"'guarantee to theBank for the,money. But these set-tlers, so far asIcould learn, pay norates to any local"boVly,and anTrather proud of tShe fact, as distin-guishing them from atnyone ~

f else.They look to outside * people, andmore particularly Taranaki people,toagitate,lor/the development of theirdistrict. Whilst the Mokau tradeshould drain naturally Ho Taranaki,it is not reasonableto supppse tiiatpeoplehere will strain after1 its de-velopmentif the people on the spot,who are to reap the greatest.-good)sit still and.do nothing*. They-mjustwake up and co-operate with . theirsouthern neighbours in urging on t^hepowers that be the need for openingthe country. The accomplishment ofthis cannot be hoped for at once;t;t butif noconcerted action is taken ,bythose directly interested thea tine Go-vernment canno.t be blameld if it con-tinues apolicy of masterly inactivity.In conversation with settlers atMokau township,Iwas informed thata pressing need was the improvementof the wharf. Some time ago theMarine Department had elaborateplans prepared of a Whfarf to qost£1100, arid indicatedthiat a £200 sub-sidy would be grantedit tihe settlersarranged for the balance. They con-tend that a £200 structure will( beample to meet the needs for m|anyyears, and that astheyjihave alreadybuilt wnai there is' of a wharfI,'tjhem-selves they should receive some >oon-sideration.

Then, again, at rthe entrance tjhercis a spit on the north side, where theriver makes a very sharp -turn before'entering "■'the sea.- This spit causesthe current to, swe^p across on to thesouth side witn considerable force,so that a vessel1cannot leave the riv-er on an ebb tide, though she^m'ayenter if the.1 tide has not.fallen, toomuch. Men versed in stuch mattersc.onsider that a groyne on ; tihe sideopposite to;the spit couldbe made atvery small expense -and would"have,the effect of turning the current onto the point of the spit and so clear-ing it away and making a gooddhlan-nel. By" continuing, tihis gnoynewithin certain limits its betnefitswouldbe correspondinglygreater.

At present there is a HaaAfourBoard in existence, though its workis not very audu'o'us. Its revenuesfrom-' * wharfage, etc., te^re decidedlymeagre. ; '""

Much difference1" of opinioin exists onie "Question

''of" briidge versus ferry.

The Government has spent a sum of ;money in instituting a ferry service,but the'"punt works sljowly anjd ijhe <approaches reqjuire to be made up. iAgain, in bad weather the punt is al- |]

HISTORY OF THE COALMEASURES.

The existence of coal in the Mokaulias been 'known to Europeans fromvery early days of settlement. Aslong ago as 1842 small lots werebrought down the river by the Maorisand given to Europeans;but it wasnot till many years later that anyquantity was obtained. About '1873Mr E. M. Smith and others made anexpedition iup the river in canoes,andbrought down samples of coal and,limesto»e. The first mine was openedby Mr Stockman, between 19 and 20years ago, the site being about threemiles further up the river from the!present mine. The first shipment ofcoal— S4 tons

—was sent down the river

fn canoes to what is called "The,Wharf," a narrow ledge.formed by aj

fallen rata tree, about twelve pliles.1from the heads. Here it was t«ran-,shipped to a little steamer, the "Irish-;man," whose history, as connectedwith the Mokau, is full of mianycurious anecdotes.

The present mine was commencedbyaMr Poole,Mr J. Lobb being the iirstmanager, and actingin that capacityat variousintervalstip torecent times.He is still engaged at work in the.nine.

INTERVIEW WITH MR STUBBS.m a cnat witn Jiir ti, jll. ptubbs, oi

Waitara, who is managing the bpsi-ness, he informed me that the greathandicap in the past had been thatsteamers were'builtfor the trade with-out any regard to their suitabilityfor tne river. A steamer is now beingbuilt i» Auckland, and is expectedhere shortly, specially for work be-tween "VVaitara and the Mokau.

The Taranaki Collieries,Ltd.,hold alease of 13,000 acres in all on thenorth sWe of ,the river. Thlis land itis proposed to cut up later on for set-tlement, largeportionsof itbeingverysuitable for dairying. There is also'abundance of good milling timber, in-cluding red and white, pine, matai,and tptara.

Speakingof tihe.coal obtained atpre-"sent, Mr St<ubbys' said ifae Coal;Gonv*mission hajCl dasseti M_fc>kau next t©^Westport coalL for householdbi>afflst jsteam purposes. " , . .i*"

- |Experiments had also ■ been tried'

wihiahhad so far-proved lhat thecoalcould- be used for the manufactwreof gas.'

The coal could be delivered- in thelocalmaVket 12/ per ton cheaper thanWestport. This margin couldprobably.'be still further reduced at New Ply-mouth were it not for the excessive)!wharfage and railway, charges. For'instance,,the charges at this (New Ply-mouth) end on coal showed the fol-lowing "comparison with Waitara:

Breakwater—Wharfage 1/9 per ton,railage (2 miles)1/9 per ton, weighing,2d per ton;Waitara— Wharfage1/ perton, railage ('lO miles) 1/9 per ton,weighing 2d per ton. Were the charg-es reasonablelarge quantities of thecoal would come to New Plymouth,asthe arrangements for working tkecargaes' wereso much more expeditipusand thp steamer was not hampered bythe state of the tide.

TUB MOKAU AS A TOUIUSTBESORT.

No better outing, from, a tourist'spoint of view, can be obtained. Thescenery on the river is said, by thosewho have seen both, to be superior tothat of the "Wanganui, givinggreaterand more charming variety. It is in-tended to put on a new steamer fromWaitara withina few weeks, whichhasbeenbuilt specially for the river. Shewill have a good turn of speed andcomfortable accommodationfor a num-ber of passengers. But the people ofMokau should aslo take actionin thisrespect. Many persona jelesirous otsuch an outing wouldprefer to- majtothe journey overland to Mokau, andif the settlers ha£l a launch there theup-river trip could be made. The un-pleasantness of the sea trip—

a seriousmatter withmany people;— would thenbo obviated. It only requires theplace to be better known, to attract aconstant stream of visitors during thesummer months.

Duringmy jowncyings1heard 'sever-al projects discussed dealing] withkowbest todevelop the tourist traffic, allmore or less practicable, buteach onesubject to certain dim'culties. In thepresent embryo state of these schemes,it is as well perhaps to pass onwith-^out further notice. It is sufficient tosay Uhat the new steamer already re-ferred to will Ibe luwijning shortly, andwillbe able to carry passengers, whooan joinher either at Waitara or Mo-kau' Heads. As the owners point out,however, patrons must bear in mind[that avessel engaged in the coaltradecannot run to any fixed timetable. ,Tothe ordinary tourist, of course, thiswouldnot matter mluoh, as a daymoreor less is of no great importance tohim. There are a great mainy peoplewho can onlyget away for a few daysfrombusiness, however, to whom thechance of delay means the abandon-ment of the trip. To such as these thesteam launch on the river woulfcl be aboon, and it would,Iam assured, beremunerativeto the owners— a mostimportant item.

I In concluding this account of myjourney and impressions Imust ex-tend my hearty tfh'onivs tio CapjiainaPJiilLpson and Eeardbn for their kind-ness during the trip. To the latter es-pecially, who acted as cicerone, Iamdeeply'indebtod for information regard-ingpoints of interest. Itrust thesegentlemen will live to see the MJokaucountry a busy centre of prosperity,and the riVer occupying1 itsproperplace as amain nrtuy of commerce.

MAMA'S NEW HUSBAND—TO-

(.From Our Parliamentary Correspon-dent.)

Wellington, October 10.A straight-out statement in regard

to "roads and bi*iclges>' was maile bytjho Premier last evening. JJe acl-mifttetl that m,oney granted Uniler theLoams toLocal Bodies Act Was moneywell advanced. The local bodieswerevery careful antl would' not spenU itujjoh the class of -work that they,would urge the (Government to under-take. I?e wo.xilcl prefer himself, if allthe mlonies could be allocated by somedirect, means and that they oouIHpos-sibly get raocis and bridges off thefloor of the House. Tihat wpulcl be agpocl thing for the country (Hearhear). However it was rather a diffi-cfult task to essay, and in vhe mean-titae we mjust take advantage of themachinery pro;vi(Je3.

Lately Mr Ifeke has been somewhatprominent in debate by sipeaking onevery Bill before the Holuse. While£h« amending- Loans to Local Bodiesmeasiujre was being discussedlastnighthe was the second speaker to rise, andat ontee struck off at a tangent. Hewas pfnom-p'tly pulled u,p by MrSpeaker for going quite outside thepirioiviisions of the measure -unclcr dis-cfussion, bfut he persisted that he wasrigiht. "What Bill are you quotingfrom?" asked "Mr Guinness. "TheSfcenery Presei-vationBill." replied Ma-Heke, atmidst aroar of lajUffhter. Theerritng memlber was soon informeH thatthe measlurehe held in his hand hailjust beenrlis/posed of ani'd renil a firsttime.

Wellington. October 21.Mr Symes asked the Minister for Ae;-

riduHiure what steps are being takentfiis session to vaccinate calves agrainst bladk-leg in the Taranaki dis-trict, and for the manufacture of vac-cine within the colony, tfrus prevent-ing1 the continuous beggihgi of thismaterial from foreign countries?

The Minister said the Veterinary De-partment will on application under-take the inoculation of calves. On thecompletion of the laboratory at Wal-lacr^villo steps will be taken to com-mence the manufactureof vacovne.

LARGEST SHIP IS THE WORLD.Thbek times since"January, 1899. the largestship inthe world hasbeeu launchedat Bel-fast for ,tlie WMte Star line, and withinafew weeis another ship,largerby 3000 tonsthan any now sailing, will be launched atBelfast for the same line The increase inthe size of theworld'sgreatest steamersinceJanuary.-1599. is almost 7000 tons TheOceanic, which, at the time of her launch,wasthe largestin theworld measured a littleover17,000 tons gross. Shewas followedbythe Celtic, cf 20,904 tons. The Cedrie camenext; of 20,950 tons, and now the Balticfollows of about24,000 tons.

The launchof the Baltic will confirm theWhite Star linein theposition whichithaslong1occupied, of possessing by a long waythe largest ship inthe -world, for 4COU tons■will separate the .Baltic from the KaiserWilhelm 11., the next largest ofany otherline, andafter .the Kaiser Wilhelm 11,thenextlargest ofanyotherlinethanthe WhiteStaris theDeutschland, of 16.C00 tons. Cothatonly tyrovessels oiany otherline come■within8000 tonsof thelargeststeamer ofthe"WMte Starline,and twentyyears ago there■wasonly one steamer in the world, excepttihe Great Eastern, -which measured morethanBCCO tons.

.Inbringing down aLicensing,Billat this late stage of the session itiis scarcely likely that Mr Jaed'Qjon;has any serious intention,of pfush-;ing; it througli before! the ;<Hojuserises. There is a lot of debatablematter in-the.Bill,,and the division Jion ,another liquor measure onWednesday'night knows that upon

■such qiiestions,the Premier camtoot"rely upon the votes of what on:other questions constitutes his\ party. The Upper iHowse can"be"

S depended upon- to dekl wi^h'anyi licensing . measure on commpn-sense lines, withdut regard to faidson the one hand and vested1 inter-

\ ests. on the other, in the11 Lower,House there are a number>of members who owe liieir seats totpledges given at the time of the-llast election "to wne side or the}other, arid this fact will cause aIdivision inpartyranks when licens-

' ing legislation is desalt " with.ITherefore it is likely that the Bill'fiiirder notice ,;will ipro^oke a^lotogland bitter; debate, and the- House,will mot tolerate that3iow, even if;Mr Seddpn were willing to }s'eef

J fusing issue of reduction- is to befrom the voting papers at

On theother hand xwe do n:ot think theproposal that Mayors and CountyChairman shall be ex-officio mem-bers of, Incensing Committees; willbe popular, for it is likely to leadto the introduction of the liquorquestion into local' politics, an)d thepeople generally want to see lessrather than more of the question.T-he Premier, indicated that it wasintended to disqualify active > pro-hibitionists as "well as persons in-terested in' the trade fr,om'. mem-bership of I/icensing Committees.pChe clause with respect to farbid-bing persons in a no-license dis-trict having liquor;in' their'housesexcept for specifield purposes isbertain to arouse a;'^wide interest.It is opposed by Prohibitionists,but, after^all, it is" only a logical,outcome of proh^bitiopi, and.Pro^hibitionists,w,no.4are

"Yon do love some one else ?"he cried, in a hollow voice, hisnoble face growinggray and sharpwith agony.

"Yes," she whispered; "tmt ojilythe exigency of the case wouldforce me to confess it."

And then she told him franklyall the story of her early regardlor Rarle Wayne— his misfortuneandpatient endurance for another'scrime

—of his return, and of their

mutual though unspoken affectionfor each other.

"Earl Wayne !" he repeated,with astart. "Who is he ? Wheredidhe come from?" he demanded,with eager interest, as she spokehis name."Ido not know. He came tomy

uncle when seventeen j^ears of age.He was fatherless,motherless, andfriendless; but he has proved him-self, if not honored amosig men, tobe stamped with Heaven's nobil-ity."

Would that Karle Wayne couldhave heard thi:s tribute from thewoman he so lo\cd !

"Wayne— is it spelled with a"y?" Mr Tressalia a«ked.""Yes.""Of what nationality is he ?""American, Ijudge, though 1

never heard him say aught uponthe subject."

"Strange ! strange !" Mr Tres-salia muttered, v.-ith thoughtfulbrow.

But, after a few minutes of mius-jing, he reached out and claspedherhand.The confession she had made, and

he had listened to, was a strangeone for a uelicato rind sensitive wo-man to jnak<\ and his great heartwastouched withsympathy for her!gallant lover, dii ! with admirationifor thf woman who could be sotrue and loyal to him.

WILL HE T.ICAR TIIK TKST ?Editha knew something of all

this, for she read the papeis, andat the termination of the trialenough could not be said of thebrilliant victory which the yo.iuiglawyer had achieved.

She was at Newport, but shewould gladly have returned to thecity with her father to attendthetrial had she known of it in sea-sou.

CHAPTER XIII

"I knew it—Iknew it; butIknew also that the true grit wasin you. Isaw it in the Galgrencase, and I've watched you since.Besides," with a shrewd look upinto the handsome face, "I knewhungry dogs alwaj^s work hardestfor a bone, and they seldom fail toget it, too; that's one reason 1brought you my case, *iud I'mproud of the result."

"Thank you, sir," Earle said,laughing at the simile of the hung-ry dog1 "I am glad that } « orconfidence was not inisplacei, m.dIcongratulate you upon our suc-cess

— it gives you a very handsome. fortune.", "Yes, yes ; a decent bit of pro-perty, I'll admit; but ii)\v mvehof it are you going to want ?"

Earle coloured at fiis way ofputting this question;it seemei to

; him a trifle surly and ungratefulafter his hard work."I trust not more than is right,

sir; but we will talk of this an-other time, if you please,' lie

J with dig-nity.The bttle man chuckled (o Hm-

self, d.s, slipping his arm familiar-ly within Earle's, he drew him oneside.

"How mu:h do \on wau^ 3 Pc-member, it takes a good 'leal topay for a pound of flesh, -mdyou've lost a good many since Icame to you that night four' months ago," he persisted.

Earle saw that the man wasreally kind at heart, and meantwellby him in spite of his unpre-.possessing manner.

"And you must remember, sir,that the reputation of this successJ is worth considerable to me; butii suppose this is a very unbusiness-!like way to talk, and if you are in|a hurry for me to set my fee, Iwill do so," and he named a sumwhich he thought would pay himwell for his labour.

The little, thin-visaged,wiry manchuckled again, and clapped Earleupon the shoulder in an approvingmanner.

"Very moderate and proper fora youngster, only let me whispera. little bit of advice in your ear,albeit, I'm no lawyer. When youcan find a fat customer, salt agood slice of him for yourself, andwhen a lean one comes along,don't cut in quite so deep. How'sthat for counsel?"

"Very good," Earle r.aid, with ahearty laugh; "but," with asparkle of mischief in his eye, asit traversed the thin form of hisclient from tip to toe, "I'm insome doubt as to which class youwould prefer to belong to."

The little man tapped hispocketssignificantly, and then shoving ahand into each, drew forth twogood-sized rolls of bills and showedthem to him.

"Fat, youngster, when I've anydealings with you, though Icantell youIknow how to pinch hardin the right place,"'and his wiryfingers closed over the bills in away that reminded Earle of minia-ture boa constructors.

He was a strange character, and!though during the trial things hadIcome out which seemed to makehim out a miser, harsh and soul-less in all his dealings with men,}-et Earle thought there must beaspot of goodness and generosityabout him somewhere, for heseemed so appreciative of his ser-Ivices. And the result proved hewas right."I'll call around and settle to-

morrow;Iwant this thing off mymind; and I reckon you've notfound many bones to pick besidesthis during the last four months,"he said at parting.

"No, sir ; this gigantic one haserupted all my time and skill."

"Spoiledany teeth?" his clientasked, facetiously.

"No, sir ;sharpened them; readyfor another," Earle responded, inthe same strain, to carry out thepoor joke.

"You'll.uo ;would like you for ason; wishIhad a daughter— youshould marry her ;" and the littleman, with his characteristic bobof the head, turned and went hisway, whileEarle, musingupon theevents of the day, returned to hisoffice, but thinking that if his clienthad happened to have a daughter,he might wish to be excused fr<oma nearer relationship to him, not-withstanding the now plethorics^te of his money-bci»s.

The vext morning he received acheque for five thousand dollaasi

from tin.' eccentric man, togetherwith an expression of gratitude forhis faithful .services.* And this wasthe foundation— the "foundationlaid with his own hands"

—which

Earle now be^an to build upon.There were uo more idle days

for him. Work pouiedin uponhimfrom every side. Success broughtcountless friends, where hefore hehad not possessed one, and he badefair en- long to fulfill KicihardForrester's prediction concerningIiiM— that he had a brilliant careerbcfoic him.

i But lie had merely said lie wasobliged to go home upon business,|which she judged upon his returnjmust have been of an unpleasant)nature, since for several days after-ward he was morose a#.d in everyway disagreeable.

Every one remarked how muchmore beautiful Miss Dalton was

> this summer than the preceding-one.

Many attributed it to the changein her dress, as »he no longer re-fused to wear colo,urs, and her

■ wardrobe was iemarkable for its■ taste pnd elegance, while others

c^aiii her sorrow was weaung■ away and her spirits werej returoing.

No one but Editha herself, fi'ow-" ever, knew the secret of her owni beauty— she had loved and wasbe-

loved; and, though her hiapes"might not be crowned ibr a l|ong> while, yet she waited in patience[ for Earle to speak, having full

faith that he would eventuallyrisesuperior to e\ery Uul,and trample

" every obstacle beneath his feet.She and her father were less in

sympathy than ever before.She had dared to disfplease him

" again by rejecting iVIr Trcssalia's: proposals of marriage.

Thu day following Earle's Cjall- upon her—

on that very Christmas' Day when she had comteinjplaicdI asking him to dinner, and making'. the day so pleasant to him— Mr" Dalton had brought Mr Tressalia

home with him to be their guest,i and he had sat in the seat slliu had

destined for Karle, aaid she had" been obliged to exert herself to

entertain him instead., He had also attended a grand; reception with them in the even-: ing, and altogether that Christ-- mas was so entirely different fromi what she had planned it shouldbe,'. that she was a little inclined tol feel almost as much out of patience. with the innocent cause of it as

with her father.i A few days later Paul Trustsalia: had asked her to be his wife, and■ she had been obliged to tell him

"No, it could not be."Mr Dalton was very angry, but

" secretly bade the rejected loverhope, assuring him that Editha'saffections were not engaged, andhe, three months later, takingcourage, renewed his proposals, toreceive the same answer as before.

A stormy interview betweenfather and daughter had followed,Mr Dalton declaring that sheshouldmarr)' the rich Etoglisjhman,and Editha as firmly assertingthat she should not do so.

The disappointed lover,however,followed them to Newport, wherehe continually haunted every sceneof pleasure where the fair girl wasto be found; and, to Editha'sshame, she was at last forced tobelieve that her father was stillbidding him hope againsthope.It might be thought that Paul

Tressalia was lacking in eitiherpride for himself or proper respectfor the woman he professed tolove,by being so persistent;but itwas the one passion ot his life, al-though he was thirty years ofage,and he could not easily jdeld toher gentle though firm refusal,particularly when Mr Dalton toldhim he must eventuallyovercomeher objections if lie waspatient.

He was n,ot presuming in his at-tentions ; he never forced his soc-ietyupon her ;yet, with a patienceand faithfulness that deserved abetter return, he waitedandhoped.

"If you would but give me theleast ray of hope thatImayeventually win your love, MissEditha ; my life will be ruinedwithout the crown of your love,"he had ventured to urge once morein a sorrowiulkind of way, on thelast evening of her stay at New-port.

He had heard she was going onthe morrow, and he could not bearil;he must put his fate to thetest once more, aud for Ihe lasttime.

"Mr Tressalia," she entreated,in a. pained voice, "what shall Itell you to make you understandthat it calmot be ?"

"There could oiily be one thingthat you could tell me that woulddestroy every gleam of hope."'

"And that?" she interrupted,with a quick breath and a flutter-ing of her white lids.

"That your love is given xo an-other," he said, passionately, andsearching, with sudden foreboding,the beautiful face he loved so well.

The rich blood surged insiantlyover cheek, brow and neck.

Could she confess that she lo\cdanother, when that love was as3'ct unspoken even to Us object ?

And yrt she miijt not awayand leave him to feed >n a hope-less passion.

Would it he maidcnl) J Would itbe proper t

"Editha, have I'ny s deceivedall Hiis while ? HaveIbeen perse-cuting you with uiv attentions,while you loved nnother ?" Ik*cried, in consternation, <ts ho mark-ed that startled l'u;i, «md lntui-li\v\y knew Its i.miisc.

Sne looked up rilo his vlntcpained face, and pitied him fromthe depths of her tenijr itcfivt.

"Mr Tress'alia,"' he said, withsudden resolution "it i* cm<S toallow you to h'>,><_" when there i:>|no hope. 1 will make you my o njfi'drint. Yon are nnhit and rood,and you will not K'tra\r my trust.IWhat you have said

—is true."

Tier voioo was low, and sweet,nnd tremulous, as :Jic confessid it,but her face was 'lysrt with hottestblushes. I

Mr Major enquired of the Minister ofPublic Works to-day whyhe hail notgi,ven efl'ect to his promise,maiJe op

ihe 5-tfi October, 1900, regarding theOjJunake - Elthamrailway.

Tjie Minister replied tjrat the pro-mise referred to was to Jmve a sjurverof tie Eltjiam - Opjunalie line niafclewhen an officer of the Department wasavailable. This has not been losisigjit of, and will be kept. Up to thepresent, however, the officers of theDepartment have been so closely en-gaged "uponuroent worike in di'ffereifctparts of the colony that an engineerhas npt been available to take theworjc in hand. Further informationreferred to will he obtained during re-cess.

There is still a tremencfuous run onthe handsome tailor-made offer-ng by the Melbourne Clotting Com-

pany." Tho suits are eojual to thebest custom tailored garments andcost considerably less; fheyare dressy,stylish, shapely and they willholdtheir shape until the last.
