Adelaide, October 23* The Committee of the Legislative Council have had under consideration the Chinese Restriction Bill. The tonnage limitation of Chinese emigrasion to the Northern Territory has been reduced to one Chinaman for every fifty tons. The clause preventing Chinese travelling from one colony to another without a permit was struck out. ' In his report on the defences of the colony, Major-General Downes, commandant of the military forces, says that owing to the low conditions of the reserves they are quite unreliable, and he recommends that the compulsory clauses compelling men between the ages of twenty and twenty-four to serve m the active militia for three years should be rigidly enforced; and afterwards they should be compelled r to remain m a reserve corps until attain* ing the age of thirty.
