(per phess association.) Sydney, October 27. The London representative of the Sydney " Daily Telegraph " sends, via Albany, a report of an interview he had with feir Julius Yogel. He says the work 6ir Julias is engaged on is a remarkable political novel, and expresses the opinion that the execution is as striking as the design. The work will command large attention m the literary world. With reference to the Chinese question, Sir Julius said the Colonies should not needlessly embarrass the Home authorities, but deal with the matter m a straightforward manner, and let the Colonial Office look after their own interests. The question is one for the colonies to settle, and if they will not look after their own interests they cannot expect England to. If the Mother Country choose to facilitate the work well and good, but if not, then the colonies must take the necessary action themselves unaided. Sir Julius added that the Australians must refuse to allow Chinese immigration any longer. Referring to the Australian Naval Defence Bill, Sir Julius Yogel considered it was not objectionable when looked upon m the light of a businees transaction, whereby the colonies were able to get warships cheaply, but it would be dangerous for the colonies to assume the appearance of contributing to maintain the Imperial nary. The gentlemen receiving the appointment oi Colonial Governors should be experienced and intellectual. With regard to the Anglo-Australian connection, he thought it wag only strengthened by the colonies being able to regard the Imperial authorities as friends, not rulers. Sir Julius is unfavorable to the construction of a cable from Vancouver to the colonies, when a much shorter route could be obtained from a point south of San Francisco. The talk of carrying the line through British territory solely was absurd, and would offer speciml inducement for a hostile power to cut it m time of war.. He doubts whether capitalists could be found to carry out the project, and believes his own scheme would recommend itself m preference. Reportß credit Sir Julius with having under way a huge financial scheme for purchasing the present cable to Australia, and to construct one from America.
