"Outski!" is the flippant, but very expressive heading in a Sydney evening paper (writes a correspondent under date of April 4th). It means that about '60 persons, mostly Russians, who have been actively engaged as Bolshevik propagandists for some time past, are to be deported with the least possible delay. Eight men, now in and about Brisbane, and described as leading Russian Bolsheviki, are to be arrested forthwith and sent out of harm's way. The Federal authorities have ordered a list to be compiled of all aliens in Queensland who are known to have identified themselves with Bolsheviki activities. It is believed that this will bring within the dragnet most, of the dangerous characters, who will be sent away' further ado. If 'there are others who remain to carry on tlie fanatical work, they will probably be dealt with under the War Precautions Act, which is still operative. Definite action is also promised by the Commonwealth against certain British subjects who have offended by a disloyal propaganda. It is consideTed likely that they will be rouncTecLup in a. similar manner,- and put under restraint. It is stated, somewhat mysteriously, that "persons deported in the circumstances detailed above, are being sont to/territory set apart by the British Government for tlie internment _ of Bolsheviki and other-reo-els. It is. understood that some Australian subjects who were deported during the war period are still there in detention." Where this territory is is not stated, but it is apparently not in Australia.
