NAVAL AFFAIRS.

AUSTRALIAN BASES. (Per Press Association —Copyright). SYDNEY, February 17. Senator Millen, Federal Minister of Defence, says that Sir Maurice Fitzmaurice's supplementary report on naval bases will mean a saving of £200,000 by cutting down works, putting a floating dock aside, and substituting a shipway; also, dredging by means of a suction instead of a bucket dredger. The departmental estimate of the marine works totalled £144,000, and Sir Maurice Fitzmaurice's £62,000. The complete scheme, including training barracks and schools, involves £450,000.
