An interview took place to-day be-1 tween the Agents-General of the Australian colonies and Mr Cecil IRaikes, 3?ostmaster-General, with reference to the proposed reduction in the colonial postal rates. Mr Raikes informed the Agents that a reduction on post card rates would shortly be made. He was uncertain yet whether the English Government would reduce the rate for outward letters if the colonial Governments declined to make a corresponding reduction on the letters forwarded from the colonies to England. j >3ir Francis Dillon Bell explained that New Zealand was independent of the Australian colonies regarding her mail service, and that she was not affected by the Brindisi route.
