The Westralian Aborigines.
United Press Association—By Electric Telegraph. London, May 10 In the House of Lords, the Archbishop of Canterbury dealt with the Commissioner's report on the natives of Westralia. Lord Tennyson said that a great wave of jindignation was spreading throughout Australia owing to the revelations. Lord Lansdowne confessed that he read the report with indignation and humiliation, to think that such things could happen under the British flag. The mortifying featuie was that it was calculated m future to deprive our remonstraces to other Powers of a great deal of that force which they had hitherto commanded. The "Times" cays that the dignified and impressive debate can leave no doubt m the minds of Westralian statesmen as to what is expected of them.
