Wellington, July 30. Government intend to suggest that th« House shall sit on Monday evening to consider Major Steward's motion, that a Committee be appointed to report as to the possibility of devising a system of appointing an Executive such as "may be free from 'the evils of the present system." The Postmaster-General has promised Mr Joyce that 1 although he cannot see his way to proposing any reduction m newspaper postage, he will make some I alteration m the form of wrapper used, by having stamps printed on them. A. team to represent Parliament m the Intercolonial firing match will be chosen from the following, who began practice on Saturday :—Messrs Hamlin, Anderson, Arthur, Bruce, Verrall, Carroll, Duncan, Fitzherbert, Ward, and Rhodes. One of 'the amendnlehts made* by the Labor Bills Committee to the Factories and Shops Bill yesterday was increasing the penalty for.; keeping-Shops open after hours from £20 to £50. !J It is said thab the dummyism inquiry is resulting m - a tolerably^ satisfactory demonstration that there is no dummyism, except such practices as may be considered open to question, though they do" not actually involve an infringement of law.
