Sydney, March 30

The "Sunday Times" states that after the King conferred with Lord Roberts' the. latter, acting at the King's request, laid . his views on the army difficulty before Colonei Seely and Field-Marshal Sir John French. The King, while maintaining a strictly constitutional attitude, made clear to •Ministers that to him lay the final appeal, and counselled moderation with out resort to desperate measures.

The King took counsel with .the moderator of both parties.

Mr Lloyd George banded a deputation of Young Liberals the following message :—"Democracy is on trial. Tbe right to govern is challenged by oligarchy in seeking the aid of the House of Peers and the officers of tbe army. Upon the courage and resolution displayed at this juncture by the friends of liberty in all classes depends the question of whether tbe country remains free or will in effect be enlivened by military despotism "

There is a persistent report abroad to , the "effect that Mr McKenna will succeed Colonel Seely.
