PEACE CONFERENCE.

RACE -DISCRIMINATION

NEW YORK, March 28. . Despatches from Paris say that Mr Hughes was interviewed regarding the proposed Japanese amendment to the JUeague of Nations Covenant recognising racial equality, Mr Hugues said: Australia cannot accept the proposal, which strikes at the root of the policy we have long maintained, and which is .vital to our existence. The amendment, no matter how innocuous : it may seem in form, certainly aims at giving the League control of questions relating to immigration and naturalisation, and matters which cannot be surrendered by any State without making it, in effect, a subject State. Australia could not sign a Covenant containing such an amendment."
