The Argus to-day publishes a leading article on the subject of a cable tariff between Australia and New Zealand. It approves of the action of the Melbourne Chamber of Commerce in endeavoring to obtain a reduction of the rates of the New Zealand cable, and condemns the existing anomaly, under which the tariff is greater from than it is to Australia. The Argus proposes that the colonies should act jointly to increase the subsidy paid to the Eastern Extension Telegraph Company, with a view to obtain a reduction of tariff.
