Me Falton la moving Government to bring In a Bill to give effect to the local jption resolution carried on tho 17th ult. Mr Seddon desires that Government jhull protest against the proposal of the Vio'otlau Government to Inoresse tho tariff on O9reals.
):'rom a return presented to the House there are enly sixteen Chinese m the coloDy paying Properly Tax. Tbe ehetip returns show that there were ■>nly 8252 cheep m flocks returned as Infioted. m the colony on tbe (Slat March last as against 04,743 m the previous year.
1,013,032 onrciaes of frozen mutton wore exported during the year ending Ist March last. This Is by far the greatest quantity ever exported. The coat of the le Kocti camp was £2610.
A large mumper of bulky printed returns vrero presented last night, Including the Paeons, Asylums, Police, and Education Reports, which are all of the usual ohnracter, calling for no special notice. The ooat of sending a New Zealand delegate to the Rabbit Conference at SySney waa £501. It to thought that tbe opponent* of the Otago Central Railway Bill will take advantago of tbe mishap whloh befell tbe Bill last night to try and prevent tho debate on the second roadiug coming on again for a fortnight, bat my own opinion s that tbe second reading will ba reinstated after come dlsoueaton. When tha* !b done an amendment will be moved by Mr W. O. Smith to tbe effaot that the '•Hi he postponed till Government further cooaldera the subject with a vlow to laoladlng m tho B !l all unfinished lines Iq the colony. This will be a rather aer.ioaa block to the Bill, for every member with an unfinished line m hia district will feel. bound to vote for the amendment, and all the opponents of Ihe measures will also vote for it.
The Stock Committee this morning resolved to recommend that no flock owner m a oleau dlatrfob shall ba oom* polled to brand bla sheep with any other mark than hla own registered oar mark.
After a Uttlo chaff at the expense of ministers the House agreed this afternoon to reeo!nd the resolution passed last alejht adjourning the debute on the saoond reading of the Otago Central Railway Bill. Me W. P. Reeves was particularly rough on the younger members of the Mini try, andaa'd that, from the Premier's statement, the mln'ster who was present last nigh*, waa not aware of what the Houeo was doing. It appeared that ministers) were mere dummies, and that when the Premier left the chamber tho Hoose waa without a government.
A ocmtiUtee has been appointed to acquire and report as to wh&t form of Local Governmr-nh Is boat ndaptad to the rcqutaeraontß of New ZsaUnd, five to be a qaorum ; the committee to consist of the following :— Dr Hodgklneon, Hon G.

The Representation Bill not having been fiially d apoaed of, answering questions was again postponed.
Another dieiouaahn cropped up this afternoon on the correspondence betwoen Government and Judgo Watd. It will be remembered that yesterday Mr Larnaob wished to give notloe for the appolnttnont of a aeleot committee to enquire into tho d.lspu v e between Ministers and the Judge. To-day Sir H. Atkinson unnoano9dto tho Mouse that ho did not think It neooassry to appoint buoU a 0 irnmlttoo. Tha adjournment of tho Hou^e having baen movaJ, a lengthy wrangle ensued, m which Govornmont got muoh the wornt of tho enoufiter. Darin» tbe dlsousalon great stroas was laid by various npaakern on the fact that sover»l tokgrams nnd memoa, whloh were alleged to hava passed between Ministers on the matter, and all of whloh are referred to In* the correspondence, were not included In that oorrespondonce, and were not therefore before the House, whilst a letter wdtten by Mr Hialpp to Mr Fergus, and oouohod In most venomous language, was Ino'uded. The discussion lasted till five o'olook.
The amendments to the Representation Bill were then agreed to. On the motion for tbe third reading of the Bill Colonel Fraeer, who is one of the borough party dissatisfied with the Bill, proceeded as he put It, to embalm In " Hans»rd" a history of the negotiations whloh hid led to the compromise, to show how one BSotlon of tho oouatry party had treated another socticn of that party. The dlcoaealon went on i ill 530
