The Postal Conference.

[per press association.]

(Received May 27, 12.50 p.m.) Adelaide, May 27. The Postal Conference has passed a resolution in favor of the reduction of post cards outside the colonies to twopence. The motion was carried. Hoping that the proposed cable reduction would come into operation from July 1, Mr C. Power, Queensland representative, said his colony was in a position to construct a line from Burketown to Port Darwin, doing for £5000 what it cost South Australia £40^000 to do. They were willing to join in anything which went in the direction of securing another cable. A motion was carried that any colony not joining in contributing to the subsidy or guarantee, should pay proportionately higher rates.
