(PER PRESS ASSOCIATION.)
London, April 22. ■■'" Mr Parker informed the Committee on 1 the Western Australian Bill that he disagreed with Sir T. Campbell's opinion respecting the reservation of Albany. He did not think there would be any objection to it. Albany might be made another Gibraltar. It was imperative that the Government of the Colony should control the northern lands unless a new colony were created. He suggested amendments in the Bill which would prevent the: immigration of Anglo-Chinese subjects to the Cblo"ny.
It is hoped that a million will be subscribed for the Western Australian Midland Railway by the middle of May ;" £750,000' is already underwritten.
