.(Rm-ived April 28, 12.30 p.m.), LONDON, April 26. The " Manchester Gu.ardian," m a leader, says :—" Australasia, propor-

tionatt-ly to population, is the most accomplished and formidable- power in the world. All ranks of Australian and New Zealand troops havo extraordinary military qualities. General Sir J. Monash is one of tke most skilful of the Allies' Generals. His staff and divisional commanders displayed exceptional capacity in the encirclement and capture of Villors Bretonneux. This was a masterpiece of design and execution. We should acknowledge frankly that Australian troops are superior to Britain's. on. the average. This is due to the Australasian social, economic,

and political life, which is more favourable for the production of high military self-reliahse and resource our obsolete village feudalism and crude factory system. Australia possesses an army of skilled veterans with as glorious names on their colours as the British rcsrimonts which fought, throughout the Napoleonic wars."
