FROM OUE eWN CORRESPONDENT. Mr. Ballance’s speech on the Property Assessment Bill was the best he has ever made in the House, and the only good speech that has been made by any member of the Opposition against the proposals of the present Government.

Major Atkinson easily defended the correctness of all his statements.
