Wellington, September 15. Gqvornmont> ]ia.vo HUggosted Sir W, Fitz. Herbert as a delegate to bo appointed by the Council to the Federal Council. A deadlock having arisen between the two Chambers m regard to new clauses introduced by the House into the Oaths Bill, providing for the acceptance of evidence of very young children, the House has decided to abandon the clauses rather than endanger the rest of the Bill, which provides for affirmation m lieu of oath wherever a witness elects. Major Steward, member for Waimate, has received a number of congratulatory telegrams from all parts of the Colony on the passing of the School Committees Bill and the repeal of the cumulative vote. Amongst others was one from fifty-one teachers of North Ota^o, who signed a ! nufcition m favor of the Bill. The Factories and Shops Bill will not bo pressed this session, neither will the Land Bill. Tliero m, iv fact, little or nothing to dispose of beyond the Supplementary Estimates and Appropriation Bill. An unmistakenble indication of an end is to be found m the departure of a number of members for their respective homes and election campaign. SpeakingontheLabor Conference to-day Major Steward said he hoped one of the results would be that m future New Zealand men would not be called out for any grievance arising beyond our own shores, also that Unionists would reduce their entrance feos, and that the rule which took away freedom from men by refusing co allow non-union labor to work alongside Union labor would be abrogated.
