■ BIG CAMP AT OKINGI. (By Telegraph.—Press Association.) 1 WO-SLUNG-TOi"*, this day. t The volunteer camp to he held at Oringi, between Woodvilfo and DarmeI virke, during Easter, will be run on mii struction lines, and it is expected some 2000 volunteers will 'be present. The \ idea is that the force consists of a mobile , column providing its own defence and transport, and the work provided will be ' of a nature that such a force mMi-t ' reasonably expect to have to carry out , under active service conditions. To give "an air of verisimilitude" to actual conj ditions it is laid down in the scheme that , a state of war exists with a neighbouring Power, and that hostile troops have [ landed at Porangahau, presumably with t the intention of seizing Woodville railway junction. The local troops have ' been mobilised, and, anticipating seizure • of the junction, have pushed forward, reaching Oringi at 3 p.m. on Friday, the ■ 9th April. What happens then yet re- <■ mains to be seen, 'but it ia understood the programme is full of surprises.
